ay, Doris, do you want to marry me
when you grow up?"
"Yes oh, yes I" Doris was delighted
at the prospect.
The boy, however, assumed a bored
air, and lazily I extended his feet to
ward her.
"Very well, then," he said noncha
lantly. "If you're going to be my
wife, take off my shoes and stockings!"

Recipe of 8age and Sulphur
and Nobody Will Know.
Almost everyone knows that Sage
Tea and Sulphur, properly compound
ed, brings back the natural color and
lustte to the hair when faded, streaked
or gray; also ends dandruff. Itching
scalp and stops falling hair. Years
ago the only way to get this mixture
. was to mako it at home, which Is
mussy and troublesome.
iNowaaays we simply ask at any
drug store for "Wyeth's Sage and Sul
phur Hair Hemedy." You will get a
large bottle for about BO cents. Every
body uses this old, famous recipe, be
cause' no one can possibly tell that
you darkened your hair, ae It does It
so naturally and evenly. You dampen
a sponge or soft brush with ft and
draw this through your hair, ' taking
one small strand at a time; by morn
ing the gray hair disappears, and
after another application or two,, your
hair becomes beautifully dark, thick
and glossy and you look years younger.

Bishop McDowell tells a story about
a southern baptism. A colored preach'

ters of a tropical stream when one" old
darkey saw a crocodltle sunning him
self on the opposite banft. When his
turn came to be immersed he drew
back, casting terror-stricken eyes at
the sleeping saurian.
"What's de mattah wid yo brud-
der, said the parson; "yo' all ain't

The darkey admitted frankly that
he was.
"Don yo all ' membor de story ob

"Yes, passon. Ah 'members erbout

Similar Bill Has Been Vetoed by Two
Former Presidents Opponents of
Literacy Test Made a
Hard Fight.
Washington. The Burnett Immigra
tion bill prescribing a literacy test for
applicants to admission to the United
States was passed by the house by a
vote of 241 to 126. All proposed
amendments relating to the exclusion
of Asiatic Immigrants previously had
been eliminated.
As tha bill passed it provides that
every Immigrant admitted to the Unit
ed States must be able to read "the
English language, or some other lan
guage or dialect, Including Hebrew or
Yiddish." It prescribes the' method
of testing immigrants, providing that
each applicant for admission must
read a slip on which is printed be
tween 30 and 40 words. i
In Its present form this measure
passed the house and the senate In
the last congress, but was vetoed by
President Taft. A similar bill was
vetoed by President Cleveland's sec
ond administration. The supporters
of the bill are confident that it will
again pass the senate, although Presi
dent Wilson has let it be known that
he does not approve the literacy test,
Opponents of the literacy test
fought strenuously to the last, but on
a last effort to eliminate the test from
the bill they were defeated, 140 to
239. The final vote came at the end
of vigorous debate, which at times
threw the house Into confusion, and
on several occasions threatened to
cause serious trouble.

'Is Typhoid Conquered?
Vaccination to prevent smallpox Is
so general in this country and has
been so effective in abolishing what
was formerly one of the most destruc
tive scourges of the human race that
nearly everybody except the small
number of people whose temperament
predisposes them to "take the other
side" accepts it as a matter of course
and recognizes in it one of the great
est blessings conferred by modern
medical advancement But typhoid
vaccination Is somewhat comparative
ly new, with which the public
whole is not familiar. Yet It will be
well for the public to take heed of the
results that have been obtained by Its
use In the United States army.
