useful," says Miss Esther Hoffman,
with whom the millinery-mirror orig
inated "and it's an ornamental little
bauble, too, to have bobbing from
one's hat brim. .
"It's useful beca'use it gives you a
glimpse of who is walking behind
you. Maybe it's someone you want
to dodge, so when the mirror gives
you a hint, you step into a shop or
downa side street and escape. Or
maybe it's one of those annoying
"Johnnies" coming along then the
mirror is very useful, you can run
away from him, or if he looks dan
gerous you can call an officer.
"But even if there-were no danger
in the street the little hat mirror
would be lots of fun with one eye
on my mirror and one eye on the
street ahead I feel, like a modern
Argus, seeing everything in all directions."
HE'S A HERO
Eugene Gilbert, the French aviator
who brought down five German aero
planes before he was compelled, by
an accident to his motor, to land on
Swiss territory. He has been treated
as a hero ever since.
A parrot's a looney, and often sL
mooney, and a loudj and talkative
bird; he's sure to remember from
Jan. to December all the cuss words
he's ever heard. He's always
a-screeching and cussing and preach
ing vile slang by the bushel and yard,
and he'll yell offences at ladies and
gentses and think it is awfully smart.
He'll scold at the doggies, and croak
like the froggies, and cock his vain
head to one side, and primp a stray
feather, and rave at the weather, and
challenge the boys to a fight
But, then, he's a polly and thinks
it is jolly to do all the mischief he
can; his words may be shocking, but
he's only mocking the teachings of
gullible man. Some folks are like
parrots: they chew their stale car
rots, and hear and see things that are
mean, and then go a-spouting and
cussing and shouting just to rattle
fheir brainless bean. And yet people
ponder, and scold them and wonder
where their children have learned
"such things." Ihseems- that foul
hrases stick better some places than
'hat which is useful, by jinks! Bill
