"With very little difficuty." Wilson assured him pleasantly. "I used a mi

That is, from the point of view of danger. There were doubtless prehistoric

toasts: Wilson Mizner says the
word refers to apples. There
doesn't seem any relation, but it is
this way: Under the Georges in Eng
land they served punch in great
bowls, in which floated toasted, or
roasted, apples to flavor it. The ap
ples were called the toast. Once a ■
famous beauty at Bath stepped into a
spring on a dare. She stood in the
water laughing while one of the
beaux who applauded took a glass of
the water and drank it, to her delight.
It was a pretty compliment. But a wit
of the day who was present went it one
better, a contemporary phrase. "I like
not the water," he cried, "but I would
I had the toast," referring, of course,
to the charming piece of "flavor" in
the spring. Thereafter drinking to a
lady was called drinking a "toast,"
and the word persisted until it has
come to mean any of 101 inane
rhymes called "toasts," for all occa
sions. These things must all be true,
because Wilson Mizner says they are.

CHICAGO. Oct. 3.—Rev. John Horton,
former pastor of the Congregational
church of Beecher, 111., whose trustees
caused his arrest a year ago on a
charge of bigamy two days after his
marriage to Miss Amanda Brenker in
Chicago, came out of the Will county
jail in Joliet today to begin a pil
grimage of penitence back to his wife
In Bolton. England.
Pale, almost emaciated, the minister
spoke haltingly of his future plans,
shrinking from any reference to the
creed he had formulated at the time
of his second marriage.
"I am going to Canada tomorrow,"
he said. "I shall sail for England
Saturday. I am going back to my wife
and my children. My wife hag for
given me and I shall try to prove
my appreciation for her kindness. I
blame no one but myself and I am
very sorry for It all."
To the warden of the-Will county
Jail Horton confided that he would not
return to the ministry in England, but
would seek employment In London.

Is the Inconsistent Sex
IHICH is the inconsistent sex?
The older I grow, the. more I protest against the
accepted answer to that question. Women, to be
sure, are very inconsistent about some things, but if any
one can point out a greater inconsistency in the feminine
character than the average male shows in the discrepancy
between what he thinks he likes in a woman and what
he actually likes, 1 shall be ashamed for my sex.
Once upon a time there was a young woman who
dressed her hair with a Puritan simplicity which was not
becoming to her. She did this because her husband had
always told her that be disliked anything in the nature of
rats or puffs, that he could instantly tell when a woman
had them on, and that he thought they were always dis
Now, one day a girl friend, who was visiting this woman, persuaded her
hostess to let her do the latter's hair in fluffy ruffles style. The result was
surprisingly becoming, but the hostess insisted that she must take it down
before her husband came home, as he would not approve. Finally, however,
she was persuaded by the author of the new headdress not to change it. "I
bet he'll like it," said the audacious one. "You don't know him," said his wife.
But as it proved, she knew him better than he knew himself, for when
he came home his greeting to his wife was: "Why, how nice you look, dear.
What have you been doing to yourself? If it's that gown, I wish you'd wear
it every night."
A doctor's wife tells how she meekly adopted all her husband's sugges
tions as to heelless shoes, boneless corsets, shapeless dresses and ratless
hair, and never suspected that she wasn't delighting his eyes until she heard
him enthuse over the wives of some new friends. She made an effort to meet the
women, and found that, without exception, they typified the opposite of his
suggestions to her.
Again, men will almost invariably tell you that they dislike any sort of
perfumery on a woman, and yet they cluster like bees about the attractive
women whose affectation of some particular fragrance is one of her attractions.
Nor is it just in little matters like this that men do not know their own
minds. Indeed, no. Many a man will describe his ideal woman to you one
day as a quiet mannered, simply gowned girl, with some intelligence and
character, and* the next day will throw himself at the feet of some underbred,
Esd creature with about as much intelligence in her head as in the
h really deserves to be called the inconsistent sex?
n second thought, I don't.
