It had been rather a stressful day down at tbe office and ho felt like nothing so much aa simply being quiet, saying nothing to any one and having no one to say anything to him. Consequently he silently propped the evening paper age inst the sugar bowl and continued reading the column of Wall strt?et gossip about Harrlmaa gobbling another railroad. Mrs. Jones atood the strain of si? lence as long as she could and then burst forth desperately: "Well, wbat'a new down town?" "Nothing much," said Jonea auto? matically.

"Oh. I don': rare what she said o what this woman dkl!" exclaime Jones angrily, shoving back his chai from the table and flinging his nupki ilown on the table. Mrs. Jones's lips quivered.
