'San Francisco, Pal., March 10.j
"There's' no, such hing as love at
first sight," declared Marie Dorothy
Johnson of- this city as sfie- boarded
a-' liner for Honolulu recently. '-"It's
all bosh."1
But listen to what, happened to
Marie -Dorothy and what" changed
v her mind and: name in-short-order.,
' When, the liner rea'ched the Ha
waiiari Islands, Marie, Dorothy went
to a hotel. Three Hays later there
-was .areceptionan&JMiss Johnson
was present "just for curioslty'5
A. T. Anderson, wealthy English
man, was there too, and he met Miss
Johnson. An hour later he popped
the question and Marie said "yes."
The next day they were married and"
a few days later she came back to
Frisco tcPbreak the news to mother.

Without permitting -our "moral
sense'.' to get stirred up but put
ting our thought on the high cost
of living as a purely economic prob
lem, let us .consider some figures just
published by the U. S. commissioner
of .-internal revenue.
Prom July toFebruary 1st, 1913,
our nation consumed 94 million gal
lons of whiskey, an increase of 5 mil
lion, gallons; 8 billion cigarets, an
increase of 2 billions; 4 billion
cigars, an increase .of 250 millions,
and 250 million, pounds of smoking
tobacco. Besides, bur nation, during
the first seven months of the fiscal
year, consumed 39 million barrels of
beer, an increase of nearly 2 million
Not a drop or a pound of these
billions and millions was a necessity
all luxury. Clearly, if there is a
high cost of living, there is also a
cost of high living.
