strike the human head or face. If.
therefore, a large bird is in the habit
of making sudden turns to right or

a "wLshbone" capable of withstanding
the great strain of the wing stroke on

When Mr. and Mrs. Eastend started
ut to spend the evening In pursuance
f an engagement they paused on the
ront steps long enough for Mrs. E.
D propound the usual query. "Have

"Yes, I guess so." said Mr. E. "Wait
minute. Nu. I haven't. either. What
o you think of that? Must have left
on the dresser."
-Well, here's a pretty how-de-do!"

gely but fruitlessly rummaged his
ockets. "How are we going to get in

'eighbors awoke to the situation and
egan to be helpful.
"Get a ladder." said one.
"Get a jimmy," said another.
"Get an aerop:ane." said a third.
Various other expedients. ranging
rom derricks to dynamite. were sug

By this time the engagement had to

as making to the female contingent
f the assemblage will not here be re

earch of one. At the end of an hour
e returned with a stolid looking Ger

"Vich toor?" he Inquired.
"This one." said Mrs. E., "and for
oodness' rake don't jimmy It nor dy
amite it anless you have to!"
"Dotfs all righd." grunted the work
ann. Then he extended his hand and
ried the knob. It turned. The catch

And now when Mr. and Mrs. E.
