WNM HE EXPECTED OF WIFE
ykes Attitude Seems Unresonabl When These Few Small Things Wers All He Wanted. Beauty. Punctuality. Sweet temper. Economy. Trust, And that she should be sound asleep when he came in. And that he should not be questioned regarding the hour when he returned from poker parties. Nor that she should make any com ments regarding the strangeness of the fact that it was necessary to have on ion sandwiches at poker parties. And that she should spend such eve nings as he played poker or stayed downtown or went to stag dinners with friends of the feminine sex. - That she should always understand that his flirtations were too mild for any uncalled jealousy on her part. That it was quite a different thinj for a man to be forgiven than for a woman. And that he wouldn't have his wife make a fool of him as some wives he knew made (f their husbands. With these clear understandings at the start he knew that she would be, very happy with him, for he would make her an Ideal husband. But he had been a little too previ ous. She saw now why two other wives had divorced him. And she saved time-by refusing to marry him1-Mary Graham Bonner in Judge. MADE A HIT WITH STUDENTS "Gafeteria Work" Was Something . Which Evidently Had the Approval of the Entire Body. A new school for boys in Terre Haute, Ind., is a very modern vocation al school, with hand equipment, big athletic park and cafeteria. And the new students were much impi ssed by these facilities. On the first day of school one of the new fellows watched a last year stu dent make out his program, and it read: "Shop work, %ood work, chemi cal laboratory work and forge work." He studied it a little while and be gan writing. And this ia what he wrote: "Band work, athletic work," and then he hesitated, studied for a long time and finished, "cafeteria work." Before he could get any farther the old student, having seen the program, seized it for exhibit, and It went on record as the most popular program of the schooL Electricity and Bullets. At a rifle meeting in Switzerland it was discovered that the steel-Jacketed bullets of the marksmen were swerved Crom their course by the influence of telegraph and telephge wires running alongside the range, says-tL Nashing ton Star. Experiments were then made at Thun by placing four steel cables parallel with the range and abott~4O 'eadistant from It and * sending a* current of 8,000 volts through them. The effect, It Is said, was to turn the bullets so far from their course that the deviation amounted to 24 yards on a range of 280 yards. The bullets on being taken from the targets were found to be magnetized. Next, on an artillery range of 3,000 yards, the electro-mag netic influence was generated 200 yards In front of the targets and 40) yards to one side. The projectiles were swerved 14 degrees from a straight line. A D.oubtful I-it. One sister in tais Evansville family Is a newspaper reporter and the other a school teacher.

The good-natured re porter usually doesn't object, hut the .other day she felt her sister had gone too far when she wore her new silk dress and fall hat to school. She told her so, too. "But I had heard the school board would be at the building today," the teacher excused herself, "and I want ed to make a hit with them." S"I. bet you did," came back the dry retort.

OIL OUTPUT SHOWS BIG GAIN IN SHORT PERIOD During the two and a half years from January, 1920, to June, 1922, the United States and Mexico pro duced 1,600,000,000 barrels of crude petroleum. This was only 2.4 per cent less than the total quantity pro duced in this country during the 47 years intervening between the drill i f the first.. well- in 1869 and 19~ th4 year in which the consump tion of petroleum and its products began to show a marked increase. In 1906- the domestic production of crude oil was only 127,000,000 bar rels. The industry existed to fill the demands for a few million bazrrels .f kerosene and lubricating oi'l. Gas oine was a by-product. Only a'->ut 8; 00,000 barrels of it were produ;-ed~ T'day, the refieries of the United States could refine in 60 days, the entire 1906 domestic production of crude oil. Gasoline, which is now the chief commercial product of crude, is being produced at the rate of 140,000,000 barrels a year. Few Prisoners Now in Jail..

FAVORS STRONG ARMY "This country has specialized in killing its own men," declared Maj Gen. George H. Harries, comrnander in-chief of the Military Order of the World War, at their recent conven tion in Atlantic City. "By illing our own men I mean", Gen Harries ex plained, "that over 50 per cent of the men killed in the last war were killed unnecessarily because they didn't know how to fight." Asserting that we need a strong national defense he declared himself opposed to the thoughtless follies and propaganda of those who insist on crippling oui' army and navy.
