'Behold them heaped high on ,lhe

A mountain of '.hideous ties.
You say you would wear them in no'
case? . -Yet
somebody likes 'em and buys!
Observe what an'outrage that hose is.
(It's pinli, yellow, purjile and blue.)
Yet inquiry quickly discloses
That somebody buys 'em but
who? " - ;
Who buys the pink -shirts,- that are
offered; '
Or the orange ones, spotted with
Or the horrible hats that-are prof

Who purchases terrible dresses
With fit and with fabrics askew.
They seem to be bought, and one

Who buys all the. hideous chrotaoes,

It was noble of Eugene Debs to
take that outcast minister's daughter
into his home and shelter her. But
his Christian act has been far sur
passed by a woman.
At Los Angeles, Mrs. Leah Delmont
refused to earn money on the street
for her. husband and shot him dead
when he tried to compel her .to. The
coroner's jury exonerated 'her and
commended her act. Just the same,
of course, she is a murderess.
Now comes Mrs. Charles Welling
ton Rand, a wealthy society -matron,
;who offers to take Mrs. Delmqnt into
her home and give her as good a
chance to live a pure, useful life as
she would giver her own daughter.

risked a little, socially, that he prized.
This magnificent woman, Mrs. Rand,
risks what society women hold most
Debs was fine in risking his mite,
which was perhaps not much. The
woman is splendid in risking her all,
which is much.
Use cold coffee in place of water
in making lemonade. It is. healthful
and refreshing in hot weather.
