Then it is when people look the most keenly for bargains and are anxious to know how much things cost and where they can save mon ey. I advertise particular things, give prices and take as much pains with my announcement as I do wsth my stock. One big dinner won’t keep up the reputation of the house—but steady good cooking does it. I never permit interest in my announcement to lag and never miss an issue in my chosen publi cations. Advertising has made my store one of the largest in the coun try.” _ He Knew Better. “You needn’t tell me that wom en have no sense of humor,” said Ricketts to Fosdick. “Well?” “I overheard a stuttering man propose once. He said ‘I 1-1-love y-y-you d-d-d-devotedly m-m-my d-d-dear B-B-B-Blanche. W-w-w will y-y-you m-m-marry m-m-me?’ And after the delivery of this decla ration on the installment plan, the minx had the audacity to say ‘Oh, George, this is so sudden.’ ”—Town Topics. An Exanple Theodore—Tell me, now, what is the meaning of the expression, “pulling your leg?” Richard—I can’t tell you in so many words, but I will illustrate. You haven’t $10 about you that you can let me have for a week or two? Thanks.—Boston Transcript. For Over Fifty Fears. Mbs.
