Under the Management of Baker & McCann, Phoenix, Ariz. IT WAS A LUCKY CHANCE. How a Cl.v.r Woman Got a Skirt for Nothing. They entered the street car en route to the matinee with a swish of silk petfiroHts and hanpy in the possession of the latest creations in French. mlLin erv and this season's models In mufTs and boa. "What do you think of my skirt?" aked one of them glancing down at an affair In fancy novelty of the latest cut which she wore. "A dream," replied the companion1. "I have been admiring It all along. Toil are certainly growing extravagant, daw." A look of satisfaction Hpread over the other woman's countenance. She low ered, her voice Impressively, but not enough to prevent the other passeng ers r that end of the car from hearing. ' "it didn't cost me a cent," she said, j "A nresent! You lucky mortal. 1 1 with T had hnlf n ilopn sister muslnn I and aunts to give me lovely things onc In a while!" "Not a present, either. Just the luck iest chance In the world." replied the owner of the skirt with Inreaslng sat isfaction In her voice. "You see I went out Monday to buy a sktit. I wanUd something rather smart for an afternoon something like this in fact; , but I had been so liberal with my other j clothes that I really didn't see , how I could afford one. I spent the entire morning In trying to pick up a j bargain, and finally went to Jones & Smlthe'a. I have an account there you know. Well. I couldn't find a thing i I would look at for leas than twice what I was able to give, and- as It wa 1 o'clock and I was. cross ajid worried and worn out. T decided to go into th?lr room and treat myself to something dalntv and refreshing, just to cheer ma up. "WeH, my dear. It was too fortunate. It had looked like rain that morning, and I had rut on that old green aklrt you remember. iart of that suit I hai made to order last autumh. "Well. 8-s luck would have It. It was a new waitress who took my order. She was awkward and nervous and as she was placing my tea on the table she stumbled and spilled the whole thing, cup and all. right Into my lap. "I didn't wait even to eat mv lurch. I went right down to the office and complained. The men were extremely polite when they found I had arv ac-i-ount there. Resides they could see that the skirt was of expensive mater ial, and somehow I'm sure I didn't say so but somehow they seemed to be under the lmprepsion that It had been made last spring. Anyhow I told them that I considered It good for another season's weax which was tru)e, If only I hadn't been seen In It a whole sea son already and that It belonged to a suit which had cost me $90, and that I thought that they t-hould at least make it good to me with another skirt. And It ended with my going back and getting this dream of a skirt for noth ing. What do you think of that for luck?" "Put," protested the other woman. whose face had grown grave as she listened, "didn't that poor girl have to stand the cost of that skirt?" "Oh em well, now I never thought of that. Verba:; she did have to nay something; but of course they would have never charged her with th whole price of that skirt. And then. It was entirely her own awkwardness," "Of course. If she spoiled your skirt," hr friend began thoughtfully. ."Oh my dear, that was the best part of It," exclaimed the piece of selflhnes Incarr.ite with a jubilant laugh. "Th other ekirt wasn't spoiled at all. You see It was only tea and after it was sponged off and pressed one could never tell the difference." To Relieve Hoarseness. If you are hoarse, lemon Juice squeez ed onto soft sugar till it is like syrup and a few drops of glycerine added re lieves the hoarseness at once. So Very Superior.
