from her corner seat In the lobby of
the family hotel, "we shut up our

I'd never recover my nervous tone as I

I don't know that I llko all the people.
For instance, the folks in the room

come home at all hours of the night,
my dear, all hours! They walk per

needn't tell mo that two o'clock in the
morning Is a respectable hour for a
man and his wife to get homo three
or four nights every week.
"I've never laid oyos on them?not
that I'vo tried to, of course, but you'd
think I'd run upon them In tho hall
going In or out. Every time I hear
a door close and think It's theirs I
find wh?n I get out Into tho hall It's
somebody else going out. It's very

must havo noticed hor. Sho's the one
that sits at the table under the elec

n young man with atralght-up blond
hair comes to see her every Tuesday
evening. There's another ono calls,
too, but he's not so regular, She's so
dark that they'd mako a fine couple,
"If people only use common sense

riages to turn out unhappily. Just look
at tho Carlintons here?anybody can
see they're unhappy, because ho Just
buries himself In his newspaper at j
meals and snaps If she asks him to
pass anything. I didn't got a bit of
salad tho other night because my wait
er took It away while I was watching
to see If Carllnton wouldn't speak to
his wife before ho finished his coffee.
"I don't see how she stands It?It's
so apparent to outsiders. I feel so
sorry for her that I Just bate to catch
her eye when I'm looking at thorn. She
has a way of looking up suddenly
when you don't expect it. I should
think she'd havo known by the shapo
of his chin that she'd no business to
marry him. Some women neyer pay
any attention to those things.
"Didn't that automobile wake you
up the other night? Why, ths big
green one that stopped out in front
of the hotel about half paat three aud
chugged away for such a long time. I
think whorer came home in it hadn't

appeared. I'd bate to say for certain
that ho was the ono who came home
In that automobile, hut I havo my
suspicions. Ho always looks as though
ho came out of a bandbox, too, and a
man like that'll bear watching.
"Shouldn't you think that woman
with the pinkish hair would get tired
running downtown so much? I kept
track ono week and she wont out six
mornings straight. She wears her
best sable furs to shop In. too. anil
that's what drives a lot of husbands
to drink, such extravagance. Sable Is
so delicate I should think she could
find onotlgh useful things to do at j
homo instead of gadding about so
much. I'll warrant she doesn't keep
her husband's socks darned. It's tho
most curious color for hair. I'd hate
to say she dyed It. but what's a per
son to think. I'd llko to know? Six
times In ono week?
"You say maybe she was going to

I don't believe It. This time of year

NEWSPAPER IS BEST MEDIUM

topic for discussion ut the regular
meeting of the Hlnghamton (N. Y.)
Merchants and Advertisers' associa
Concerning tho value of tho newspa
per, William McMahon, advertising
manager of Sissou Uro?.-Weiden Co.,
said In part:
"In my estimation the handbill and
the rest of Its kind bear much the
same relation to the recognized beat
means of publicity as the old-fashioned
muzzle-loading blunderbusses of the
past do to the rapid-fire magazine
guns of the present day. If you were
going out gunning today you wouldn't
?elect a blunderbuss. Then why. In
hunting up new business, do you use
those same methods?
"You probably want to know by this
time what I consider t.ho best means
of publicity. To my mind, there's no
doubt about it?newspaper advertis

Mr. Irwin pointed with pride to the

recently that aald there had been a

as he wasn't posted on what had hap

tags on the "sets" read aa follows:
