' Jut a Bit of the Vit One Can Find In
.' tne foetal Swim.
K There are some people who love to
point the finder of scorn at the bril
"'t ' liant conversation which illuminates
-f, the society circle as is the "society
circle," and the. name people have
made tneir inconsiderate and un
charitable remarks about repartee,
until people wh can indulge in repar
tee do not do so for fear ot the unkind
. criticism it will provoke.
Still there are some bright minds
which w'll Rash anu scintillate, in
spite of all the dampers, and extin
guishers that mav be brought to bear
Of such is the mind of a certain
Washington girl who is "real smart''
despite her elevated social position.
Several evenings ago she was bav
ins' a cheerful little Cupidious collo
quy in the conservatory with a naval
Lieutenant who probably has more
heart than head and more invitations
to dinner liian salary.
After talking for a half hour or so
he became slightly tropical in his tone
and she hedged a bit.
"Love comes like a summer sigh,"'
he sighed, and added, ''I'd like to
know the difference between summer
sighs and winter sighs."'
'That's easy enough," she said with
a sense of relief, for she was rich
enough to lie afraid to be left too long
at the mercy of a Washington beau.
He looked at her as if he didn't
know what she was talking about, and
she didn't know e'ther.
"Oh, that's all right," she laughed
gayly. "I know; the summer sighs
are larger than the winter sighs, be
cause heat expands and cold con
tracts." A few minutes later the actual size
of it occured to him, and he was so
pleased with her wit that he would
have asked her to be his wife, but it
was everlastingly too late, for she had
noted the sighs and given varning to
her chaperon. Washington Star.

"Where in creation is that razor
of mine?" thundered Bingley, after
he had wandered all over the house
looking for the aid to the toilet. "You
can't keep anything in this place.
To try to take specialcaivof anything
is to make absolutely sure of losing
it. The last time I shaved I put that
razor carefully in the upper bureau
drawer, and I know it."
"Stop your ranting. Bingley,"
shouted his better half from a back
room. "Your razor isn't lost. 1 have

his effort to restore his own good hu

using it to rip up this oid sleigh
robe. I. in going to clean it. darn it
and make it over again."
"Great heavens, woman! Are you
crazy? There's as good a razor as
was ever stropped. Cost me $3.00 at

much as a .V poe'--"; '.. .! . t

sense enough to know that you would
ruin the edge?"
"I haven't hurt your old razor.
There's plenty of sand ground into
this robe and it's just as good as a
grindstone for razors. That's what I
get for trying to economize and skimp
and make a lot of eld trash go as
far as it will. You're, getting
wrinkled, anyhow, that you'd look
better with a full beard."

Honey on the Farm.
At the fanners' institute recently a
representative of "The Fanners'
Voice" met an aged farmer who keeps
bees. It is so rarely that liecs are
found upon the farm nowadays that
jquiries were made as to the farmer's
?xperience. He said he kept bees at
all times and always had a supply of
honey for his own table and a surplus
to sell, except in the poorest honey
years. He gets as much as 80 pounds
of surplus honey from a colony, and
this sells very readily at his homo
for 12c a pound. The income from
this does not seem large, but when
there are twenty or more colonies and
each of them returns from ti to lo a
season, it adds to the revenue of the
farm and is almost clear profit, as
the labor of taking care of the bees is
hardly worth considering.
Honey will always be one of the
luxuries, and there will never come a
time when pure honey can not be sold
at a good price. The cities are full
of rank imitations of honey that sell
at honey prices, and anyone who is
able to furnish a supply of pure comb
heney and get it to marked in good
shape, may be sure of getting from
1.V to 20c a pound for it.
