Kaiser Wilhelm is going to get

Many a man's sense of humor
permits his wife to imagine herself
the boss of Jihe establishment. It
might just as well be that way, as
the "easiest' way out."
Our modern realistic novelists
are' giving us some very truthful
photographs of sewers and gutters.
Meanwhile Nature gives us dawns
and sunsets which, if not artistic,
are very satisfying and soliciting.
The hoot owl is a mournful bird
And wierd to hear at night.
He perches on the tree limb
And awakens you, in frights
But he is like a lot of men
For all his ghastly cries
His voice is all he has
And he is only pocket size.
Dr. Frank Crane, the eminent
specialist, says: "God forbid that
I should ever own a newspaper or
attempt to manage one. It takes
vaster quantities of both courage
and tact than I possess." Strange,
indeed that so many others have
had the courage (or the foolhardi
ness) to attempt it!
The wholesale optical association
-has declared against the return of
long skirts for women. This is as
mean a thing as when the under
takers association in convention at
Atlantic City after the war passed
a, resolution asking the government
to bring back all the soldiers who
irere killed in Europe.
The prospect of having turkey
for Thanksgiving in the average
home isnot very flattering at this
time, as prices are high and still
raising, with a reported shortage
in the Southern crop. The Ken
tucky crop is about normal, but
-with the shortage elsewhere we
shall have to be thankful for a nice
fat little hen. with some oysters on.
We see in the daily papers that
women are more than holding their
own just at this time. We note
that there are fifteen women being
tried in different parts of the coun-
ry foe the murder of men, while
only seven men are being tried for
the murder of women. Compared
-with the same week last year it
geems the women are gaining "at the
ratio of two to one.
It has been said by an expert
that mt one American in fifty can
name all the" Presidents of the
United States in their order. And
yet there are hundreds of people
right here in Paris who can give
the batting averages of all the base
"ball teams, and call the roll of the
moviag picture stars and staresses.

THE EYES AND THE MOVIES
Do the movies hurt the eyes?
"If they do it is usually due to
the fact that the eyes themselves
Years ago, in the days of the ,nic
kelodeon, most moving pictures
were mechanically imperfect, many
of the films giving a sort of a rain
storm effect. The machines were
not firmly anchored and there was
much vibration. Such pictures
could easily cause serious eye strain,
The modern moving picture can-
not be considered a cause of eye
strain. Of course, it should be
viewed under favorable conditions.

It is safe to say, if your eyes are
