A toast May the best you wish for be the worst you get. It takes a born diplomat to disguise the interest he feels in himself. Marrying for money is often as un satisfactory as marrying for love. There are many men of many minds; some even mind their own business. Pcn't put too much faith in the re pentance that comes after conviction. One is beginning to acquire wisdom when he realizes that he isn't the whole fhow. It is the woman with the new hat who never complains because the ser mon is long drawn out. This isn't such a bad old world after all. Just think of what might happen that never does. Many a man thinks that he is put ting up a strong argument when in reality he is only making a loud noise. When you hear a married woman Fay that all men are alike it's a safe bet that the has faced the parson with the wrong man. Chicago Daily News. TENDER-HEARTED WILLIE. ttillip Do vou Dlav on the piano?

The telephone lines are arranged on the switchboard so that each operator can usually answer all her calls in a reasonable length of time. At certain hours of the day, however, there are more calls than at other times and they all can not be answered at the same rate of speed.

She was tiny and timid, a slip of a girl, with the freshnem of country talsles and green field about her. For toany minute she had been standing by the bis reviving doors of Iieucon'a department store, searching erery face as the crowds surged In and out. Choking bark the persistent sobs and fears, she realised that she mutt think and think hard. She had heard that In all big cltle there were men whose doty It was to direct strangers and to help them, and he had always been warned to bo very careful about speaking to people promiscuously. "Always ask policeman" that was It "Always ask a policeman," mother had said, and Aunt Carrie had said, and Cousin Luclna had said "Always ask a policeman." Through the thinning crowd she sift ed, glancing timidly about,' until she spied a big, glowing-faced policeman at the cross streets, t'p to him she rushed, heedless of traffic or traffic regulations. "Oh, sir," she cried. "Jim's gone, and I'm lost! Please tell me what to dot" "ou're lost, are you T smiled the policeman. "Well, who U Jim, and where do you lire?" Autos honked, drivers shouted and pedestrians scowled and scolded whllo Officer Dane hntened to the half-sobbed tory of the little country Daisy. "Jim Is James Dee from Chicago, and I've run away from home to mar 17 htm, and now 1 cun't find him. I'm so afraid aoniethtng has happened to him. Please find him for me." Officer Dane signalled for the Impa tient drivers and pedeotrlans to cross. Fuming and seething, they swept past the stalwart man and the frightened girl. The spot cpon which they stood was like a tiny Island in a tempestu ous sea of traffic. "Walt a minute," encouraged Dane, "and I'll help you." Boon the home-bound rush hour was over, and Done piloted his charge to a sheltered corner. "So Jim Is lost, Is he? And you are going to marry him, are you? Just play I'm your granddad and tell me alt about It," and his kindly blue eyes In vited confidence. Hesitatingly Daisy explained that 71m had rome to her home In Danbury Hill for his summer vacation a month before when her mother had adver tised for a few hoarders to help fill the family pocket book. Jim was wonder ful the finest man In the world. lie loved her but mother didn't trust him and wanted to know him better before giving hrr consent. Finally, Jliu'S va cation being over, he had found It tn possible to leave Daisy, and she couldn't let him go without her; so they had eloped, and now he was lost and site was lost and she was very, anhsppy. Big bill Dane pondered n moment. ; "IK you love this Dee fellow well enough, little lady, to go back home tonight and face the music alone, while I hunt for him?" "Oh. If I only could go home," she sobbed. "I'd never run away again. Gently Officer Dune led Daisy, soinewhut crumpled and crushed, through the now quieter streets to the railroad station whore, promising her news In the morning, he placed her ou the train for Danbury Hill. The next noon a trim, big-shouldered, blue-eyed mnn swung off the train nt Dnnbury Mill station. Daisy, from the hill-top, watched him climb the hill and come straight up to her door. "flood morning, little lady," he sang out to her. "How's your heart this morning? All battered and torn or cun It stand a little shaking up?" "Why, It's my policeman," gasped Daisy, "only you aren't a policeman at all." "Oh, yes; I am a policeman, all right," chuckled Dune; "but It's my day off and I cume to deliver my mes supe In person. It's not I who am luas queruding, but James Dee of Chicago, U. S. A." "Masquerading?" "Sure," and genial Hill Dane settled himself on the stone wall that skirted the fa no. He mopjed his cheerful face and beamed a smile of understanding that vanned Daisy's heart "I thought I was right-yesterday," he snld, "but I won tod to be sure be fore I took a rbunce of breaking your little ln-urt. Your friend Jim never saw Chicago. He's a soda clerk In a drug store. Many a lemon and lime he's mixed for me, and I dropped In for one this morning. He was Just back from u month's vacation. Here's a note he Mnt you, by the way." Trembl'ng Daisy opened the note, while Dane strolled away, his heart sinking as It bad never sung before. "Dear Daisy" the note reud. "I'm a cad. I'm not a rich guy from Chica go at all, so I quit you cold yester day. You're too good a girl to Jolly. BUI Dune ferreted me out. He's some detective and the tg, unrest muu I know. Forgive and forget. Jim." The afternoon train was leaving Danbury Hill stutlon for the city aa n broud-shouldered man with glad blue eyes Jumped gaily on the rear plat form. "Good-by, little lady," he shouted. "I'll be back for my vacation and, say, that family advice of yours Is all right 'Always ask a policeman.' Dont forget to follow, it" ,
