The Genevieve Who Is a Right
Whirl JnmPR married Genevieve he
' u unknown young lawyer with
She "ocmcd far cleverer than he and
wan, besides, the daughter of a promi
nent citizen. It was thus felt by all
Genevieve Included that Jumes hnd
done extremely well for himself.
James worked hard after they were
married and in the cotir.so of events he
won an important suit and received ft
fee of $500. It was put In the local pa
pers br nn unheard-of thing for so
young an attorney. Then James work
ed harder than ever and got bigger
fees; and after a while he went into
Now, my deais, do not understand
from this that James went to the peni
tentiary and his wife took In washing.
Nor even that ho deserved to go to tho
I-eiiltentliiry and his wife wore dia
monds as big as a hen's vgg. Nothing
of the sort.
James Just went Into politics; and
his talents being peculiarly suited to
the political fame which is often
complicated by the game played by
people who want things from the poli
ticians he did extremely weil there.
In fact, ho went to congress after a
while and was permitted, about his
fourth term, to open his mouth and
ret the speaker's ear. This meant
that his ability was widely recognized
and that ho was In right.
Now, Genevieve was not, all these
long years, a nonentity; and eho
never allowed herself to be consid
ered a nonentity. She was, In fact,
her husband's rij;ht hand man. In
the early days they used to talk
things over together and she was
often sure that ho really told her
how It was. Of course, lrom hia ow n
viewpoint, he did toll her how It was;
but there were other viewpoints. Still,
Genevieve read tho papers and her
husband's speeches In manuscript and
put in all tho commas and things he
had forgotten. In other words her
words fiho revised them.
Genevieve's own ambitions wero not
asleep all this while. She became

Identified herself with various wom
an organizations. She ws, in fact,
for a number of years, president of
our local woman's club, than which,
ladles and gentlemen, none is more
uctlve in matters affecting tho bott
welfare oi tho state and nation.
"James," said Genevieve one day,
"James, I think wo should have a
bureau of publicity which will dis
seminate, information which will be of
iuterest to others aud of beiKiit to
"l:m!" said Jamos.
"James," said Genevieve, "I am Ko
iug to establish u bureau of publicity,
and we will get out literature and
thus your campaign, which now ap
proaches, will be enlivened."
"Urn!" said James.
No, James was not a brute.' He wh
Blmply wondering where the bureau
would be, whether they could get It
into either the dining room or the
nittlng room. And whether the wom
an club would hold its meetings in
noine other room. And where tho
Ladles' Aid society would keep its
materials for niixtdon sewing. And,
In tho meantime, where the fumlly
would take its meals.
In a short time, "Jamej," eald Gene
vieve, her pun's in a state of dignified
happiness impossible to describe,
"James, I have decided to establish
the bureau la the parlor. One must
have quiet for such responsible work,
and the dining room will not do n ac
count of Katherina and the children
bothering u so."
"I'ui!'' haid James.
"James," said Genevieve one after
noon shortly afterwards, "we nre
going to need the ult'.ii.g ruom for a
committee meeting of tho Ladles' Aid
and the club will have Jo meet In the

Also, a tiptoeing clerk from the bu

paid to him, "I guess you better come,
here a minute, Jim, they'vo got things
all balled up about Judson's stand on

one part of hint to tho other, tranasct

"Paw," whooped hla youngest hope
ful that evening, as he came home
from school, "paw, whut does Tom
Judson mean when he says hU paw

Say, paw, I licked Tom for cayin'

having a wife who was actively Inter

"You ought to see her house,"
cooes the wife of another prominent
politician. "She has those men

meals are something fierce. I am
thankful to say that not one of that
political set ever finds himself under
my roof." Which Is hardly a thing to
bo proud of, either.
Jamos spends much of his time

ho takes his meals in silent and soli

No matter how his friends may

JUST AN INNOCENT PASTIME
Naturally Miss Deia Became Quite

The cot'.ago of Mirs Delia Judlin
was separated from that of her next
neighbors, tho Ashleys, by the slen
derest rossiblo strip of space, and as
the houses had each a window exact

ciable nature, and always mindful of

picasuro to sit with her sewing bcsldo
her window, just back of her muslin
curtains, thus, with comfort and con
tent, gleaning many interesting items
relating to tho private lives of her
neighbors which she afterward dis

One summer day, during a family
discussion among the Ashleys of an
unusually interesting nature, as Miss
Delia eat intensely listening, her
needle held motionless in air, she
was pained to hear one cf the Ashley
girls observe Buddc-uly, "Take care
what you say, ma; you're close to the
window. Miss Delia C3n hear every
word, nnd she'll be spreading it ail
over the neighborhood before night."
With panting breath and flushed
chcrk, in an Impulbivo burst of out
raced feeling, Miss Delia swept her
curtain aside and called out indig
nantly, "Lucinda Ashley, I can't hear
a thing you say from this window
not a pottered word, and you'd ought
to know it!"
"Wearing a smile, Lucinda'e face ap
peared at her own window.
"Why, Miss Delia," said she, "of
course ycu can't. Whatever made you
think we thought you could?"
