WORLDLY WISE PERSON
By JOSEPHINE CARROLL,
An & little fclrl Albortlue always sat
In the chair in the. farthest corner
when she went to children's parties.
She had a meek, pretty little face,
abundant yellow hair and large, ap
pealing blue eyes that held a shadow
of apology In them for her temerity In
presuming to exist. She retained the
modest violet atmosphere after she
was grown up.
Other girls might blossom Into dar
ing coquettes and fascinating belles,
but Albertine always kept in the back
ground. Whenever people looked at
her they Involuntarily thought of lace
mitts and hoopskirts and curtseys.
They felt that Albertine should be
put under glass.
This being the case, It was aston
ishing that down In her secret heart
Albertine had a fierce love of the dar
ing, the wild and gay and the extreme.
When she picked out a dress design
she always chose the rankest, most
alarming atrocity. The dressmaker
said, "Oh, certainly," and then pro
ceeded to modify the pattern to suit
Things had a way of drooping softly
on her In old fashioned lines. She
wanted to look frightfully smart and
somehow she never did. Secretly she
suspected the dressmakers, but she
never dared accuse them.
It was the same way when It came
to the young men. Let a perfectly
steady, sober youth who earned a reg
ular salary and was good to his
mother come her way and Albertine
raised her littlo nose and sniffed. She
simply could not see him. She ad
mired extravagantly the sort of young
man who dashed down the street
wearing crimson silk socks and a tie
to match and the latest cry In waist
coats, and If he was followed by a
bulldog eo much the better. If people
raised their eyebrows and coughed
discreetly when his name was men
tioned It made the situation perfect.
Albertine always felt loftily then
that she was an experienced, worldly
wise person and the eyebrow ralsera
were narrow provincials. Usually the
bulldoggy young man never pro
gressed in the acquaintance farther
than raising his hat and casting an
entrancing smile at her, but Albertine
was satisfied with just adoring him
from a distance.
Her family was quite alarmed when
she fell In love with Harry Jungles,
because Harry always was In debt
and worked only seml-occaslonally,
and Albertine's relatives had a great
deal of money. Harry seemed awake
to this, for he actually called on Al
bertine and talked poetry to her In
the parlor In low, rich tones and told
her how the world misjudged him.
Albertine went so far as to powder
her already white nose and her moth
er caught her once using an eyebrow
pencil. It was much the same as
though an Easter lily had begun to
rouge. The situation was saved, how
ever, by the sheriff's removing Harry
for forgery, and after that Albertine
wore what she thought was a heart
broken expression and thought she
threw Into her face deep lines of ex
perience and suffering.
After Harry several others of the
same kind followed. Therefore, hav
ing long hovered over Albertine in
fear that she would do some fool thing
and spoil her life her family was en
tranced when rdio becamo engaged to
Jeffrey. It all happened so suddenly
that one was scarcely aware Jeffrey
was on earth before he was Introduc
ing himself as a future son-in-law and
Jeffrey was absolutely as nearly
perfect as he could bo for Albertine.
Liberal minded people might say he
erred on the side of rigidness and
propriety and possible narrowness,
but one felt that ho would always be
at home at six o'clock sharp for din
ner and that Albertine never would
have to hang out of the front window
trying to distinguish whether It was
he wavering down the street at one
o'clock in the morning. Jeffrey choked
at the sight of a cigarette, wouldn't
be caught dead at a dog b!ow and said
his wife never should be permlttted
to wear decollete gowns in the even
ing. The more people considered the
matter the more inexplicable it be
came. Finally her dearest friend flat
ly asked Albertine to explain Jeffrey's
"You see," said the dearest friend,
"with your Ideas I can't understand
bo v you happen to fall In love with
Jeffrey, of all men."
"Of all men!" echoed Albertine In
ritying astonishment. "Why, I'll tell
you, Susie because I rcccn1. at
once that Jeffrey Is the most sophis
ticated sort of person. He's such a
man of the world. I can't abide these
goody goody men!" Chicago Daily
Smoking In Winter.
A physician of note assert3 that
smoking has a worse effect on most
people In winter than in summer, nnd
he advises all smokers who find their
health and mental faculties impaired
in winter for no apparent reason to
accept tobacco as the explanation and
to cut down their smoking during the
Tobacco, he says. Is a very powerful
drug and cannot be consumed In large
quantities wifbout producing a certain
effect on the heart. It must be re
membered that during the winter the
heart has a great deal more work to
do than In summer, for the cold causes
the blood vessels to become Email and
pinched. It Is thus less able to bear
the extra strain put upon It by smok
ing. From the Family Doctor.
CURBING OF CHARLIE
By LAURA HOOVER.
Miss Stelter finished arranging the
last of the display cards of buttons,
and then gave a final pat to the large
wads of hair plastered over each of
her ears as she warily located the dis
tant form of the floorwalker.
"Manie!" she called across the Isle.
"Seen them airships?"
"Sure!" responded the girl at the
handkerchiefs. "Art be said last
night he'd take me up in one, only he
was afraid I'd yell. He knows a
man who Is cousin to a man who
cleans an airship garage an "
"Charlie took me down Michigan
avenue yestldday," Interrupted Miss
Stelter, ruthlessly. "Charlie always
wants me to be In on everything. Say.it
was great! I nearly broke my neck
"Those 'r teir cents a card. No,
we ain't got none bigger for ten cents.
"Wouldn't some people frost you,
always wanting more'n their money's
worth! Well, we looked at them
things floating around In the sky till
I was dizzy. Then I grabbed Charlie
by the arm. 'Don't you never,' I said
to him, 'don't you never go up In one
of them machines as long as you know
me, Charlie Johnson! You've got to
"What'd ho say?" Inquired the girl
at the handkerchief counter.
"I ought-a-known better," pursued
iIis8 Stelter. "I ought-a remembered
Charlie's high-strung nature, and how
It always makes him stubborn to cross
him. Hut I was that foolish! It
made my head ache to think of his
being a thousand miles up in the air
and me down below wondering If
two baskets'd be enough to gather up
the pieces in. Anyhow, I'm nervous.
"Dress goods, three aisles to the left
No, madam, we don't carry that style
button. I tell you that we don't, so
what's the use of looking for It here?
"I'd like to give these people a
piece of my mind who think because
this Is the basement they can Impose
on us! So I said, 'Charlie Johnson,
you can just promise me this min
ute. You know how stern "Charlie
can look when he wants to I suppose
It comes from ordering people to step
forward in the car and he Just turn
ed hla full expression on me. Andthen
he said he wouldn't!"
"My!" said the girl at the handker
chiefs. "Is he that stubborn?"
"Uhhuh," said Miss Stelter, proudly.
"That man Is a regular stone wall.
He said a man that was a man court
ed danger Instead of running from
It, and it was a duty he owed
"Six cents a dozen. These are
"He looked grand, too, as he said
Is. Five aisles down. I wish peo
ple would go 'long about their busi
ness and stop Interrupting! He said
he wouldn't humor me in such fool
ishness. "'But aren't you afraid?' I ast him.
He Just laughed at me In a scornful
sort of way. 'Afraid!' he said. 'Me
afraid! Well, I guess not! Going up
In airships is the best thing I do!
Why, I'm perfectly at home in the air!
Of course,' he saya, 'I've never been
up in one of those here machines, but
being on top of the Masonic temple
shows a fellow what he can stand.
These people who talk about danger,
huh!' I felt proud of Charlie when he
talked like that!"
"Of course you did," agreed the girl
at the handkerchiefs. "I know when
Art says "
"Put I wasn't going to give in," went
on Miss Stelter. "It's a bad habit to
get Into. 'But It's dangerous,' I told
"Charlie just hooted. 'Dangerous!'
he said. 'About as much danger as
you could put in your eye! The ma
chines are perfectly harmless, and you
can manage 'em with a single twist of
the wrist, because I've read about
'em. I expect I'll buy one when
they come down cheaper. Why, there
won't be any accident when every
body travels by airship. They're

ous necks 'most broke an' me hanging
on to Charlie's arm, coaxing him. I
was bound to get my way, though I
was proud to hear him talk.
"Right In the middle it a sentence
Charlie give a yell that you could have
heard a mile off, and waved his arms
like a thrashing machine. 'Run!' he
sHrleked, 'run for your life! The
thing'll get us all,' and he streaked it.
"You see, somebody in an upper
story of a hotel had dropped an open
newspaper from the window, and
Charlie's eye had caught a glimpse of
the thing floating down on top of our
heads it was getting kind of dusk--nnd
I guess he thought an airship
had got loose ami dropp d.
"S-y, you ought to have heard the
people laugh! I was awful ashamed,
but the newspaper drop" right on
my hat and covered me up.
"Charlie came around last night, and
I toll him what I thought of him, put
ting a lady in such -a position. Piut
he promised he'd mver go up In one of
the things, anyhow!"
'Well, I should think you'd be re
lieved," said the girl at the handker
chiefs. "Men are the limit!"
Niagara Falls Stories.
James Russell Lowell's remark that
Niagara Falls had nothing else to do
may remind us of the delightful Irish
man who, called upon to be impressed
by his first view of "all that water
coming down such a height" replied,
"Why wouldn't it?" But the best of
recent Niagara stories is told in the
last Argonaut It is of the housewife
who saw the falls for the first time.
"Oh!" be cried, "that reminds me I
left the kitchen tap running."
