HE CARRIED AN UMBRELLA. "
A dear old lady who was very "sot"
In her prejudices was asked Just why
she. didn't like n certain man She. had
no particular reason that she could
think of lit the Instant, but she had been
to emphatic In her expression of dla-

And some excubc at once. Just at that
moment sho happened to glanco out ot
the window and saw him passing by.
Ho carried it neatly rolled umbrella
though It hardly threatened rain.
Quick as a dash sho answered her
questioner, "Ho carries an umbrella
whether It's raining or not ho is a
"But," said her (rlend, alio looking
out of tlio window, "hero comes jour
Eon William, and ho Is carrying an um
brella." This did not stump the old lady. "Hut
that's another matter I don't like him
anyhow and besides, It nil depends on
who carries tho umbrella," sho replied
That Is tho position some people have
taken regarding that wholesome and
refreshing becrago Coca-Cola. They
liavo said a good many unkind things
about It and In each Instnnco hao had
It proed to them that their talcs wcro
Plnally they seized upon tho fact that
Coca Cola gets much of its refreshing
dcllclousncss from tho small bit ot caf
feine that It contains. They looked upon
that as a splendid argument ngalnst It.
Then, llko thn old lady who was remind
ed of son William, they wcro reminded
that It Is tho caffelno In their favorltu
boternges, tea and coffee, (oven moro
than In Coca Coin) that gives them
their refreshing and sustaining quali
ties. Hut does that stop their criticism of
Coca Cola for containing caffeine? No
their answer is similar to tho old
lad '8 they say "Hut that's another
matter" what they mean 13 "Hcing
prejudiced against Coca-Cola and lik
ing tea or coffee. It all depends on
what carries tho caffeine."
Wo think tho Joko is on them for
caffelno Is caffeine, nnd it It Is not
harmful in ono It can't bo harmful in
another. Wo all know that It is not
harmful In tea "or coffee that it is
really helpful in whatever it Is this
is bound to Includo Coca Cola.
Of course, tho truth Is, that having
started an attack on false premises nnd
having had what they thought wero
good reasons for criticism proved to
bo no reasons at all, they aro grasping
ot on excuse which does not exist, to
explain a prejudice. So you see, after
nil, it all depends on who carries tho
umbrella to pcoplo who aro determined
to be unfair. Let us bo fair. Adv.
