"How dare you speak to me ' like that?" said the tree, shaking with an ger and sending down some unripe, hard apples, which sent the piggies and Madam Pig squealing down the road. Mr. Blackbird, who had been nearby and heard all that had been said, flew into the tree and began to peck at an apple. "How dare you spoil my unripe fruit," said the tree, "when there are plenty pf ripe apples on the ground?" "I did not care to risk one of your hard apples striking me," replied Mr. Blackbird. "I saw the way you treat ed Madam Pig, and besides I rather enjoy spoiling fruit."

The sig nificance of the name is of the most heroic character and it was a favorite with the ruling houses pf the various German principalities as far back as the Tenth and Eleventh centuries. The name in Its earliest beginnings was verv much the same in form and even spelling as it is today. Adela is prob ably the widest variation in the course of centuries. The name was widely adopted fn France, as well as in England and Italy under different forms from Ada la i da to Adeline. The jewel associated with persons bearing the name Adele is , the tur quoise.

A man never takes a woman's arm when walking in the street save when she Is too old or feeble to walk un aided or when the way is so slippery as to be hazardous. It Is regarded as decidedly provincial or "second rate" to do this. When walking with a woman a man never stops to speak to an acquaint ance whom he chances to meet unless the woman takes the lead in so doing. If a man happens to meet a woman acquaintance, even though he is well acquainted with her, he would not think of stopping to talk with her in the street, but if there was something which they wished to discuss he might ,ask whether he might walk with her for a little way. He would show the same consideration to his mother or sister in this regard. . If a man overtakes a woman going in the same direction that he is he would never think of accompanying her without asking permission and unless, he knew her well enough to be quite sure that she would not have the slightest objection he' would not ask for this. A man does not Invariably take the curb side of the sidewalk when ac companying a woman. He does if the road is muddy and therefore that side is less desirable. In city streets -he usually takes -the ' side that makes It possible for him to meet pedestrian traffic coming In the other way. That is, he would walk at her left where traffic keeps to the right as it does in American cities. (Copyright.) : HOW DO YOU SAY IT? : By C N. LURIE ' Common Errors in English and '. How - to Avoid Them EACH OTHER, ONE ANOTHER; EITHER, ANY, NEITHER, NONE. PROPERLY, the term "each other" is to be used of only one pair of persons or things which stand in rela tion, and the term "one another" only of more than two such persons . or things. ' Thus, we. "may say: "The two friends presented gifts to each other," but not "to one another;" "all of the nations of : the earth should dwell in amity with one another," not "with each other." There are, however, au thorities on grammar who bold that the two phrases may be used inter changeably ; for example, Bindley Mur ray says, "Two negatives in English destroy one another." A similar distinction is made by grammarians between "either" and any," and between "neither" and none." "Either" and "neither" apply to two ; "any" and "none" to more than two. Thus, do not say, "I have not seen, either of the three men ;" "neither of the twelve jurors was con vinced of the man's guilt." (Copyrlgrrit.) How ttiiarfEd ASPIRIN Name "Bayer" on Genuine Beware !
