She is a dignified woman, and sometimes
she is overpowering. The unwary do net
perceive this quickly, however. The dig
nified woman has been spending some time
in one of the hospitals of this city. She
went there for rest and quiet. Since she
has recovered her health she tells some
-amusing stories of her experiences. Here
is one:
The dignified woman was walking down
the hall one day when she was accosted by
the curious woman. The curious woman
had been wondering about the dignified
woman, and she said:
"I beg your pardon, madam, but I would
like to know what you have been operated
on for?"
. "What?" exclaimed the dignified woman.
"Well, explained the curious woman, "my
friend in the next room and I have been
wondering about you. You walk about the
hall with such a light and springy step that
we wonder about what kind of an operation
you have undergone."
The curious woman held her ground. She
was determined to know what was the mat
ter with the dignified woman.
The dignified woman replied:
'I have not been operated upon yet."
"Oh!" said the curious woman, sympa
thetically "No, I am not familiar with operations,"
said the dignified woman.
The curious woman interrupted: "They
are very successful here. Don't be wor
ried." "I am wondering about an operation on
the brain," said the dignified woman, in a
very dignified and distant manner. "I won
der if they could operate upon the brain in
such a way as to enable people to attend to
their own affairs."
. The curious woman snorted and walked
away in high dudgeon.
The dignified woman was severe, it is true,
but she was provoked to it. St. Louis Re
