?ju iinmuffled motor. Then he slammed
flown his glass and gasped like a :?sh
out of water.'
"I'll be dodgasted if I will!" said
Mrs. Skelly did not move an eye

?Pinches," she proceeded, "'and your
Tuxedo will be all right."
"Dancing class at my age!" Skelly
roared. "Why not marbles? Me tie
-myself up in" bowknots doing the ?
. tango when I ought to be dandling my
.... ?grandchildren on my knee telling
them stories of the wai1-"
"You haven't any grandchildren, and
as your son is only fourteen, you
.don't have to worry about that for a
Thile," remarked jin. Skelly. "AnC
?here is no sense in our bein*? back
numbers when every one else is dc
* "ing such things. And I want to leam
r the one-step tonight. It is great fun.
. Besides, I promised that I'd join."
"Why did I ever get married?" Skel
ly demanded hotly of the chi-Tonier,
as he incased himself in the Tuxedo. ;
"Why doesn't a man ever appreciate
. his freedom when he has it, I'd like
to know? Why didn't I stay down !

happy evening in the bosom of my

"The electric has come," said Mrs.
Skelly, peering from the window.
"Come along, Arthur."
"What chance has a man got, any
"how?' Skelly demanded furiously of
Ove other men in the dressing room
-at the Finches. "No chance at all!"
The other five agreed tumultuously
?nd gloomily. . i
"I feel like a fool," Skelly said, as
they surged in before the teacher
with their wives. "I think age should
be dignified. Any pictures of the
tango that I've seen show the people,
climbing chandeliers or sliding on
their shoulder blades. I put It to !
jon, Emily, would I look well sliding
on my shoulder blades? Would you
like to have our son see me doing
"Miss Grippy," interposed Mrs. Skel
.ly sweetly at this point in the mono
logue, "my husband, Mr. Skelly."
"Some looker," commented Skelly,
with a show of interest. "Is she to
"teach us? Why didn't you Intimate
-.something to that effect sooner?
.t?racking good ankles, hasn't she-"
"Arthur," said Mrs. Skelly severely,
"."you're supposed to be listening to
.what she's saying!" ;
"All speech is not verbal," insisted
jSkelly. "What's that she is saying
?about a grapevine? It sounds co m pl i
The rest of the class managed to
..master the grapevine step shortly,but
?Skelly had a terrible time. It was

a special, personal lesson twice be

to the second movement of the one

Mrs. Skelly. "Are there curls flowing

nurse waiting for me in the hall with
any tippet and overshoes? Look at

for such monopoly! Teacher's pet!
ri want her to show me the drag
"Anybody with sense could do the
drag step without being shown,"
growled Finch. "If you think this one
'Step is so hard whatchu going to
do when it comes to the tango? There
are 64 steps and I bet you never learn
"Bet I do!" said Skelly warmly. "I
-don't know that you and the others
have anything on me when it comes
.to a simple matter of memory! Why,
? was the best dancer in the crowd
when I was a boy! Took up every
new dance the minute it came out, !
and I guess these new fangled things
aren't so very different from the old!
Learn 'em? Pooh! Eet I get the tan

fellows have had time to cross your
feet once! And at that I'll bet you'll
cross 'em the wrong way!"
"Oh, stow your brag!" said Finch. '
""Watch me! Light on my feet
"Can't learn it! Pooh!" Skelly said
to Mrs. Skelly on the way home. "Why,
.did you hear what Miss Grippy said
to me? Said I was getting the one
-step better than any one else in the
class! Isn't there another lesson for
& week? I think that's too long a
time to wait. Don't you? Say, Emily,
what are you laughing at?"
Wireless Waves Bother Birds.
Wireless telegraphy has done much
Hor US, and probably-or rather, surely
. will-do a great deal more for the

\they could speak, many birds would

-where there are a large number of
wireless stations observations have
Ibeen made which seem to indicate that
thirds are disturbed in a very curious
<way by the wireless waves. The un
offending seagull is one of the chief
?sufferers, as also is the harmless
-Jdove. This strange state of things is
-isitributed in some way to an effect
<ot the ether waves, though how It is
ifcrought about Is not yet understood.
Guard Your Children
Against Bowel Trouble
Many children at an carly age
become constipated, and frequently
serious consequences result. Not
being able to realise his own con
dition, a child's bowels should be
constantly watched, and a gentle
laxative given when necessary.
Dr. Miles' .Laxative Tablets are
especially well adapted to women
and children. The Sisters of
Christian Charity, 531 Charles St.,
Luzerne, Pa.,' who attend many
cases of sickness say of them:
"Some time ago we began using Dr.
Miles'. Laxative Tablets and find that
we like them very much. Their action
ls excellent and we are grateful for
having been made acquainted with
them. We have had good results in
every ca.se and the Sisters are very
The form and flavor of any medi
cine is very important, no matter
who is to take it. The taste and
appearance are especially important
when children are concerned. All

the average child "medicine," even
though the taste is partially dis
guised. In using Dr. Miles' Lax
ative Tablcii, however, this diffi
culty is overcome. The shape of
the tablets, their appearance and
candy-like taste at once appeal to
any child, with the result that they
arc taken without objection.
The rich chocolate flavor and
absence of other taste, make Dr.,
Miles' Laxative Tablets the ideal
remedy for children. 3
