-"Bye nature's walks, shoot tolly as tiles."
Birdie Murray, Weight 260, Tripped on the Front
Stairs and Alighted on Her ManThat's All.
SAGE has said that any girl with a dimple who
knows how to work it can make a dignified man
act like a monkey. James Condrfen of Summit,
N. J., can testify that Miss Murray's dimple was
worked a little too rapidly in his case. He went to
call on Miss Murray about three weeks ago and was
admitted to the front hall. As he was on terms of
intimacy with the family he sat down on the front
stairs to wait for Miss Murray to appear from above.
Birdie Murray is a lithe, lightsome fairy who tips
the scales when you can get her on them, which is not
often, at 260 pounds. So that you may readily see that
4ier dimple is decidedly to the good.
Birdie heard James down below and as she was in
a playful mood she tripp'ed on the upper stairs and
came down, dimple and all, in one hunk, only touching
a high stair here and there with her perrson, landing
fairly on top of the astonished Condren and nearly
driving him thru the front entry floor.
It proved to be no joke. Birdie screamed twice,
but was not hurt, beyond incidental bruises, but Con
dren was unconscious. He was taken to his home, and
until Friday was in the care of physicians in Sum
mit. Then it was found that his neck was broken, an. I
in an effort to save his life he was taken to All Souls'
hospital in Morristown.
After you have a man comfortably landed and sit
ting on the front stairs it may be said to be a fau.\
pas, at least for a fleshy girl, to come flying d6wn an.1
alight on him. It destroys the dignity of your queenly
advent on the scene and it is likely to destroy your
chances with any man who objects to acting as buffer

Mr. Corey, the Pittsburg millionaire who is said to
be worth $20,000,000, and whose attentions to a beaute
ous chorus girl recently agitated our business circles,
is in luck. Mrs. Corey went to Nevada and sued him
for divorce. This action, taken in Nevada and taken
in connection with Corey's undoubted possession of
i $20,000,000, seem beyond all question to entitle him to
the senatorship from Nevada.
little Margaret, aged 6, is much interested in the
ways of the five family hens. One day last week they
all got together and laid each an egg in Ragf oot 's nest.
Margaret, as she gathered the eggs in her little apron,
remarked to her mother:
"Old Ragfoot probably said to the other biddies,
'Oome over to my house and bring your work.'

department of a South Dakota paper for a receipt to

Rumor has it that J. Ogden Armour has retired
fvom the wheat speculation business. This is one of
the grandest businesses on earth for the man who has
$20,000,000 in the bank to check against. All you
have to do is to get the small speculators everywhere
to "invest" by Tying about the conditions or about
what you are going to do. Then you take their money.
After the squeal has subsided a bit, you see that
market sentiment is manipulated again and the small
boys all hurry to get in "to recoup their losses."
Then you take their money again.
Business would certainly suffer were it not for this
great safety valve.
If J. Ogden Armour is really out for good we fear
for the market. A. J. R.

seriously. "Etmily and her husband
are one of the happiest couples I know.
They are much happier than many
pairs I could name wherein the wife
waits on her husband hand and foot,
and cannot breathe out of his sight.
You are shocked because they have the
modern notion of matrimony, which is
that it is a contract for the highest
good of both, and not merely for the
material comfort of one. The trouble
with you men is that you regard mar
riage as an arrangement whereby you
are to get well-cooked meals, a happy
home, and the sympathy that will help
you on in your work. The woman is
to get food, clothes, a roof and affec
tion. Yu don't think of her asa rea
soning creature with talents and ambi
tions of her own. She is merejy an .ac-
cessory to minister to your happiness
and success. Isn't it so?"
"She likes it," triumphed the man.
"She is happiest to."
"Not always," the woman shook
her head. Never, if she is a^ strongly
individual woman. When the average
man proposes marriage he means some'
thing very much like this: 'Because I
love you I wish you to put aside all
aims and ambitions except those per
taining to my personal comfort. I wish
you to deliberately waste the talent na
ture has given you, and which you have
cultivated at great cost and time. If
I did not love you I should be glad to
see you go ahead to achieve things.
But since I do, you must sacrifice your
own nature, come be my housekeeper
and handmaiden, and be happy in the
knowledge that you are making me
sleek, fat, prosperous-and selfish.'

A Joke That Caught a Thief
N THE lobby of the Waldorf-Astoria the other night
a man whose name is known to tens of thousands
of New Yorkers, says the Press, surprised a group
of prominent men by telling them that a recent big
defalcation in a Wall Street bank was discovered thru
"It was thru a joke I intended having at the ex
pense of my brother-in-law, who is vicepresident of
the bank," he explained. I do not suppose in all

"My cashier sent to the bank, as usual, a check
covering the amount of my weekly payroll. Being in
a hurry, he did not count the money when his assistant
brought it from the bank. Nor did his assistant, as
it afterward transpired, count the bills when he re
ceived them from the paying teller. It was after
banking hours when my cashier counted over th
money and found the teller had given him just $73
too much. Saturday is pay day in my office, and I
had left before the error was discovered. On Monday
the cashier told me about the overpayment, and said
he was about to send it back to the bank with an
Don't send it right away,'' i said. I want to
have some fun with my brother-in-law. He's always
bragging about the wonderful system by which his
bank is run, and how impossible for any mistakes to
happen. I'll drop in to see him this afternoon and
josh him a bit, then send the money over."
I carried out my part of the program all right.
My brother-in-law was the most chagrined man yon
ever saw. He declared such a thing was impossible
that, according to the system in use, the deficit would
instantly be shown. Finally, seeing that I was not
joking, he went out to the teller's desk to do a little
quiet investigating. When he came back he was un
usually grave. 'Don't send that money back just
yet,' he said. "There seems to be something queer.
The teller's book shows no such deficit. We'll look
into the matter a little more closely tonight. Mean
while, please say nothing about it.'
"Next day all New York was talking about the
arrest of the bank clerk and how a series of thefts,
extending over many years, had been unearthed. The
.ilerk had juggled the bookSj, so that when he found
he was $78 short he concluded it was some one of the
doctored accounts in which he had made a mistake
so he made his books balance to suit the occasion'.
But for that overpayment he might have kept up his
stealing all the rest of his life without detection. My
brother-in-law tells' me there is a new system of check
ing now in use in the bank."

AN UNFAIR WAY.
OHN MITCHELL, president of the United Mine

methods in use at the mines for weighing coal. Of one
method', a method of the p'ft, he said:
"This method was long ago abandoned on account
of its unfairness. It was most unfair. The fist and
pound method, in fact, was scarcely worse
"The fist and pound method originated, they say,
in Seranton. A simple-minded old lady ran a grocery
store there. A man came in one day and asked for
a pound of bacon. The old lady cut off a generous
chunk of bacon, and then, going to weigh it, found
that she had mislaid her pound weight.
'Dear me,' she said, I can't find my pound
"The man, seeing that there were about two
pounds in the chunk cut off} said hastily:
^Never mind. My fist weighs a pound.'

and his fist on the other. The two, of course, just

'Ah,' she said, in a relieved voice, 'now we can

"But the man wisely refrained from putting the
bacon on the scales to be tested. He put on his fist
again instead. And his fist, you may be sure, just
balanced the pound weight.

A HELIOTROPE VOICE
It looks as if the engrossing crystal
ball and palm reading will be put out
of business by character reading by
voice, the new fad which aristocratic
London has taken up. A lecturer on
the subject says that there are colon
in voices. A jealous person, for exam
ple, is said to have a voice like mud.
A somewhat similar shade of voice be
speaks selfishness, while a nice helio
trope tone indicates affection and devo
tion. It is consoling to learn that one
may dye one's voice, as it were, for
with a dash of repentance, a truth of
reformation and a few other ingredi
ents one may bring even a blackish
voice to a pretty shade of pink, which,
is apparently the niost desirable
in the vocal range. ^V f^3
