Our Man About Town.
Not long ago a married New Ulmite
was crawling on his hands and knees
on the bedroom floor, feeling tenderly
under the dresser for something he
had placed there the night before, but
his wife awoke and said: "Johnnie,
dear, what in the world are you doing
there?" "Dearest," said he, I was
walking in my sleep, and was dream
ing I was plucking water lillies from
the soft green bosom of the pond."
But what troubled him more than the
water lillies was how to get that bottle
out of there before she got up in the
morning. Now, friend X, how about

New Ulm woman of her husband,
"that you can't ever get home at night

were married you used to throw your
arms around my neck at two o'clock
in the morning and say: 'Don't go
darling, its early yet,' and now if I
happen to stay 'til twelve o'clock it's
something awfuL" Bibs who is will

this story would'nt tell Our Man the
names of the party. The nasty thing,
so he is.

men says that a man never feels and
looks so nelpless and insignificant as
when standing around a dry goods
