XOU want these boxes.
Yes: get everything down
from those shelves while you're up
I Delia handed down the rest of the
I boxes, then climbed heavily from the
rather shaky stepladder.
When she had gone back to the
i kitchen Helen sat down on the floor
and began opening up the things.
! What a lot of stuff What could she
I do with it all? While their new apart-
meni wuuiu aave muru ruuiuo, iuc
closets were smaller, and she must
condense and throw away.
The first box was filled with old hat
trimmings, too good to throw away,
yet would she ever use them? Here
was a black wing from a winter before
last hat. It was an expensive wing
and Just as good as new.
And there were those lovely silk roses
.from that summer hat she had bought
at Allouise's. She handled them almost
affectionately. It had always been such
a becoming hat. Surely she could use
these roses on something else. And
these were the lavender plumes she
had intended to have dyed.
In all that box there was, after all.
nothing she could throw away. The
next was 'a roll of patterns. At least
she could make away with some of
A skirt pattern tied -with a bit of
blue and white foulard the material
she had used. How could she ever
have thought that' full pleated skirt
attractive? This was the waist that
went with it. What big sleeves and
wide revers! A kimono pattern she
would keep that Kimono3 were al
ways about the same.
But when she tied up the pattern
package it was much smaller. That
much she had got rid of, and the
tissue pap"r would be good for pack
ing. Shoes Too Small.
The next was a shoe box. Those
beaded slippers she had bought at a.
sale for ?1.49. They had seemed small.
rbut the clerk had assured ner xndi

stockings they had still been too small,
and she had never worn them.
She took off her shoe to try one on

The slippers went back into the box.
The only person she knew who could
wear her shoes was the washerwom
an's little girt But a pair of nign
heeled beaded slippers would be hard
ly suitable for her. Perhaps -some time
she would find some one who could
wear them. .
The next package was small and
neatly wrapped. She felt it inquiringly.
Some of these things had bcennacked

But Delia was never grateful for any
gift She never seemed to appreciate
anything. And when she took this with

Most of them she wou probably

There is nothing more discouraging
than an overhauling of closet shelves
and old trunks. And Helen's mind
was never one of prompt decisions.
She had always to hover over and
anguish about a thing before she could
really decide what to do with it. So
now she was spending a whole after
noon and making but little progress.
When she opened the bandbox with
her winter hats, she forgot how late
it was, and began trying them on.
What difference a season makes! ot
one of the tflree could she wear as it
was. The black velvet would have to
be reblocked and the crown made
lower. How would that black wing
look Instead of this feather?
Again she opened the box of trim
mings. Before she realized it, she was
trying the effect not only of the wing,
but of most of the other trimmings on
all of the three hats.
What a lot of time she was wasting!
Hurriedly she put back the hats and
trimmings, guiltily conscious that this
was not helping to clear out the
closet She could plan her winter mil
linerv some other time. Now she must
get those things straightened up. So
again she lashed herself back to the
difficult and depressing task.
"Hello, what's all this! Well, you
do look a sight"
"Oh, Warren, I didn't know ou were
coming so early," and Helen rose
hastily, painfully conscious of her
soiled wrapper and disarranged hair
and of the littered floor about her
"Nice" mess you've got there. Goln to
throw away all this truck?"
"Some of It" weakly. "Oh dear, it's
so hard to decide just what to throw
away." , .
"Hard? Well, it wouldn't be hard for
me. Wouldn't take me long to clear
out that stuff. You'd look better if
you'd rub that smudge off your nose."
Helen retreated hastily to the mirror.
Oh. she was a sight! And she could
never bear for "Warren to see her at a

"Oh, no, dear. I'll just shove these

handed still another package. "These

"Well, you thought wrong. If you've
got room enough for all your rubbish,

Helen looked up triumphantly. "Jow

GtJX CLUE: IS REORGANIZED
Hayden, Ariz., Oct. S. A cold rain
has been falling In this vicinity dur
ing the past three to four days, some
thing Tery unusual for this country.
The thermometer has reached as low
a mark as it did last winter.
The newly organized gun club held
its second meeting in the SIM dormi

The Birth Of By-ords By. Madison C. Peters
THE first man in England to keep
a stable of hack horses for hire
was named Tobias Hobson. From
him originated the phrase "Hobson's
His methods of doing business were
strictly impartial. He strongly objected
to one customer having an advantage
over another. In accordance with his
peculiar sense of justice, therefore, his
stable rules were such that when a
man came to hire a horse he was
obliged to take the nearest one to the
door, and naturally the style of ani
mal he got depended entirely on chance.
This unusual procedure attracted at-
r lenuon, so mat wnen a man was
obliged to accept something when he
should have had his selection, he wuld
say It was "Hobson's Choice."
"Let Her Go, Gallagher."
Judge Beaver, of .Morgan county,
Ky., had a trotting mare of whom he
. was very proud. The animal was al
ways driven at the rate meets by a
man named Gallagher, -who was at that
time city marshal of Harrodsburg. On
one occasion the judge entered his
mare at a trotting meeting in Tipton
county.1 Some sports there, knowing
of the judge's pride in the animal,
thought they would lower his colors
for once, so they entered against her a
noted fast trotter.
At the end of the first half mile the
two trotters passed under the wire neck
and neck at a 2:40 pace, and the judge
grew wildly excited.
"Let her go, Gallagher! Let her go!"
he shouted. And Gallagher, hearing,
loosened the lines. The mare pluckily
responded and finished more than a
dozen lengths ahead, amid the wild
cheering of the crowd.
Out in San Francisco. 30 years ago,
there was a notorious character named

of young ruffians. They were a terro?

a lot of citizens as you could find on
the coast, a reporter who had been
assigned to a story in which they had
figured, undertook to coin a word
designating the gang. He reversed the
name of the leader and referred to
them as "noodlums." The compositor
mistook the "n" for an "h," and as
hoodlums the word passed the proof
reader. "Hoodlum" is a recognized
"Humbug" is merely a corruption of

The familiar slang term "uncle," ap
plied to a pawnbroker, is nothing but
a poor pun on the Latin word "uncus,"
a hook. Pawnbrokers use the hook to
lift pawned articles to the upper
shelves before spouts were adopted.
Gone to the "uncus" is exactly the
equivalent of the modern phrase, "up
the spout" The French phrase, used
in the same connection, "a ma aunt'e
does not mean "to my aunt's," but "to
the scoundrel's," "tante," in -French
"argto" being the most reproachful
term that can be applied to a man. In
French the "concierge de prison" is
called ("uncle,"" because the .prisoners
are -Kept in pawn" by the government
"In the Soup."
This expression of slang was born at
a game of baseball between New York
and Chicago in June, 1SS8. at the Polo
gtounds in New York. The members
of the Chicago team made themselves
conspicuous by marching over the field
before the game in dress suits, and
had consequently been dubbed "wait
ers" by the bleachers crowd. The game
was a disastrous one for the visiting
team. They suffered defeat by the Ig
nominous score of 19 to 2. At Its close
an enthusiastic rooter yelled, "The
waiters have fallen in the soup." This
took the fancy of the excited crowd
and was shouted all over the grounds.
The newspapers repeated It in the ac
counts of the game and the theaters
promptly took it up.
The "boss" is peculiarly an Ameri
can institution, but bis name is simply
the Dutch baas, meaning uncle, cousin
or kinsman in general. Then because

carded as the principal kinsman of Its !
,iiiuo.i;s, Ltics wuru vamu 10 DC used OI
him; from which to meaning the mas
ter or foreman of workman or an au
thority of any kind the transition is
simple. "De vrouew is de baas" Is a
Dutch domestic proverb that goes
straight into American "the wife Is
the boss." "Boss," curiously, has an
other slang meaning In America; on
th prairies It meant a "buffalo Latin
"bos," no doubt.
"Jn the Swim."
Originated from anglers being In
luck when they find a "swim" or
school of fish a lot of fish gathered
together is called a swim and when an
angler can pitch his hook in suoh a
place he is said to be in "a good swim."
and thus It has come to mean being In

"Feather In One's Cop."

the CAUSE or WHY they suffer from these maladies. There are of coarse many
scientific and technical theories on the subject, but the more common sense, easily
understood reasons are: Over-work. Over-eating, Excessive DrinkiBg of Coffee,
Tea or Liquors, Lack of Exercise, and the roost commonly ascribed and generally
accepted of all causes is an inactive or torpid Liver.
The Liver is the source and manufacturer of Bile, which is on of the essen
tial secretions used by nature in the digestion of food. When the Lher is in
active it fails to supply the necessary bile, and. food instead of beiag digested in
,the proper manner, ferments (rots) and from it poisosous gases are formed which
cause SOUR STOMACH, SICK HEADACHE SWELLING, and other disagreeable
troubles as well as INDIGESTION, DYSPEPSIA and CONSTIPATION. The rem
edy is: Arouse the Liver. This cannot be done with Saline Purgative, Castor Oil or
nasty mineral waters, they only flush out or dynamite the Bowels and their con
stipating Tifter effect is generally worse than the trouble they were used for.

good effects of Calomel without any of its evils. Guaranteed not to gripe nor
sicken, tastes good. Take PODOLAX for the LIVER, STOMACH and KIDNEYS.
