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. And the little teach
er Is much given to horrowing her sis
ter's clothes. 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. "for they all nearly went wild
Sabout that dress when I wore it to

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..
Gaffney.-Although the court of gen
eral sessions will convene in Gaffney
next month, there are only about hall
a dczen prisoners in jail, which ia, a
much smaller number than usual just
before court. This does not mean thai
there will be only that number of crim
inal cases for trial, as quite a number
are at large unde' bond for their ap.
pearance for various offenses.
Plans For Election.

the federal election commissloners,
R. H. Westbrook and W. B. Boyd, and
two of the state and county election
comimissioners. H. O. Tennant and,

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.
