ks band's anxious inquiiry..
of "Nothing of the sort," he replied,
e positively. ;"After I packed my grip I
looked in every bureau drawer and in
every corner of the room, and I didn't
er leave even a cake of soap behind."
S "But, my dear, I unpacked'your grip

If they had pursued the subject any
& further itis quite likely that Mr. Blinks
- would .have stayed doWii town to dln
d ner that night instead of coming home,
r. and perhaps there would have been a
0 ".coolness in the family for several days.
e As it was, both of them tried to forget
the incident,' and after each had time
to swallow some unsaid speeches, the
subject was dropped.,
I A week later Blinks was called to Chi
e cago to meet his father and brother on
s a business matter, and his brother's first
r act was to pull frohn his grip the miss
a. Ing suits of pajamas, with the remark:
"These must bdlong to you. They
came back to me at my hotel after you
left New York that time, and I forgot
to send them to you."
BlinIfs was sorry then that he had
- accused his wife of losing these night
-arments, and he
put them carefully
away in his grip.`:
When he arrived ,
at the station on

Brings Rest to Many Familes,
" Those Who Must Stay in Town
to May Rough It at E ~ne-Put
Away Ornaments, Give the ]fMaid
a Vacation, Simplifj the Meals and
Take Litf Easy.
(Copyright, 1906, by Joseph B. Bowles.)
Camp life in the woods, on the
et shore of an inland lake, or in the fast
nt ness of a wilderness, many miles from.
it an inn or a railroad, is very attractive
tu to tired people who, for awhile, have
:h had a surfeit of society. The rough
It er the life, the more it allures those
s- who cannot abide a crumpled rose in
it their ordinary experience,
it Undoubtedly theie is a great rest in
complete contrast. An elegant house
i furbished with every modern luxury.
, and managed so well that no detail
i, is omitted to make the personal sarv
I- Ice efficient, is exchanged by its own
it er with actual joy for a shack .in the
n forest and a bed of hemlock boughs.
Instead of a luxurious breakfast table,
r- there shall be fish just caught anti
broiled on the coals, or .bacon siz
t- Zling in the pan, with coffee and flap
] jacks. A dip in a cold stream at
sunrise and a hasty toilet are as dif
ferent as possible from the well ap
pointed bathroom and the fastidious
e dress of a morning at home. But no
body complains. 'Roughing it has its
e charm. From a month spent under
the trees in a tent, in fishing, canoe
ing, boating, or climbing,. men .and
women return to their old haunts rc
freshed and rejuvenated with sufficient
new energy stored up to last them an
other year. Unless one absolutely dis
likes inconvenience, land cannot fancy
any life except a conveitional one, a
period of roughing it will make him
more appreciative than ever of home
comforts when thie vacation is oyer

. I advise one who means thus to
simplify family life during a few sum
mer weeks to Indulge in s9ihe .pleas

time. A cmera may be a source of
interest, but on the whole nothing can
give quite so good, a return as a hamn
mock on the' veranda and some Sell
chosen summer books. Few busy
men. and women have leisure amid the
e crowding pursuits of the year to read
many novels. The novel in its pres
u- ent literary form brings to our door
e the glory of all lands. It introduces
e the 'humblest cottager to the interior
of sumptuous palaces, it tells storice
