Before marriage they plan their fu ture mansion and quarrel over the lo cation of the laundry. She wants it in the cellar and he wants it in the attic. Then they get married and live in a furnished room and she does her laundry in a wash bowl and irons it on a window pane. A woman may get "too full for ut terance," but the fuller a man gets the more he blabs. Any old mutt can save lives, but a real hero is a man who dares to take a friend home to dinner without no tifying his wife in advance. Some men act as if they were doing j you a favor in letting you do them a favor. And they get away with it, too. Most men believe that as soon as there is a great demand for a cigar the manufacturers begin to make it out of punk. One thing about Trouble Is that he is not a coward. He never leaves a town or dodges up alleys when he hears you are looking for him. The reason a lot of people can't find Opportunity is because old Op usually goes around disguised as Hard Work. It is funny that you can tickle a girl to death by sending her a bottle of perfumery. But if you send one to a man he'll get mad all over, The old-fashioned woman who sewed rag quilts and carpets every winter now has a daughter who pays an in stalment collector two bits a week. The reason father likes to come come and find half of mother's rela tives have been invited to dinner is because the "j" in "squirrel" is always silent. The reason daughter is too delicate to help mother wipe the dishes is be cause she can walk around town all day and carry a muff about the size of a bale of hay.

The reason a mother knows heri AS THE NOVICE VIEWS IT. (Continued from page two.) be that the city of San Francisco has obligated tiself to build a good road into that rugged section, by which thousands, instead of hundreds, can annually visit Hetch-Hetchy and feast their eyes on its manifold beauties. Another difference will be that the crystal waters of the Tuolumne river, instead of whirling their way unused to the sea, will be penned up until re leased in the faucets of the thirsty thousands of Frisco or distributed over vast sections of equally thirsty lands which lies between Hetch-Hetchy and the ocean. They will also generate power to light a score of cities, warm the houses of their residents and min ister to the twentieth century needs of thousands of farmers fortunate enough to be located within the fa vored zone. * * * The bill, as it finally passed, makes provisions for furnishing the cities mentioned a maximum of 400.000,000 gallons of water daily. It provides for the irrigation of 200,000 acres of arid land and the. generation of approxi mately 100,000 horse-power of elec trical energy. In return for the privi lege which grants to the city of 'Frisco, the government is guaranteed the sum of $30,000,000 per annum for the. pow er, after it is developed to a 60,000 horse-power capacity, and an excellent highway into one of the most beauti ful sections of the Yosemite park. As in all enterprises of this magni tude, there are wheels within wheels in this Hetch-Hetchy business. While the opposition came chiefly from ap parently disinterested sources and; there is no question but that thousands of excellent people were actuated sole ly hy motives of the loftiest patriotism, there, are also reasons that the opposi tion was powerfully aided and abetted, especially in a financial way, by great water power interests, who do not take kindly to the government setting the precedent of exacting a charge for water power nor of n municipality en tering into competition with private monopoly in the. development and dts tribution of electrical energy. It was attempted to make it appear to the country that San Francisco was put ting the bill through by means of a powertul lobby and that congress has been recreant to its duty, while, as a matter of fact, the. most active lobby ^ ere * n connection with the affair was co,u P° s cd of opponents of the measure. among whom were men who have oth er so-called water supply projects, which they have been trying to unload onto the people of San Francisco. I attended the extensive hearing of the house public lands committee on the bill and voted for it only after a full knowledge of all phases of the sub ject. In the senate, Senator Myers 01 our state was in charge of the measure and made a powerfu speech in its fa vor, as did Senator Walsh. Secretary Lane, who has charge of our national parks; Secretary Hoyston, who has charge of our national forests; and ex-Secretary Pinchot, who is entitled to speak for the conservationists, all favor the measure, so if there is an Ethopian in the brush-pile, as has been charged, a number of very careful men have tailed to find any traces of the said Senegambian. * * * The first regular session of the Sixty third congress is now in full blast and Uie house is grinding away on routine matters at a lively rate. All of the committees are getting busy and a good start will be made before the ad journment for the Christmas holidays. It looked for a. while that there was not going to be any holiday, but the senate is speeding up on the currency bill and it is now fairly well assured that this measure will be passed and sent to the president within the next two weeks. With that out of the way, the two houses will rest for about three weeks and then come back here early in January and settle down to the task of enacting more far-reaching and constructive legislation than any congress has been called up to put through since the Civil war. It is sig nificent of the. entire confidence which the people have in the wisdom and the firm leadership of President Wilson that the passage of the new tariff law, the extended discussion of the. cur rency question and the promise of some rather revolutionary legislation to come within the next six months, have had practically no adverse effect on the business of the nation. Oc casionally there is heard the voice of the alarmist, but his predictions of impending disaster find no response in the hearts of the American public The people of the country are enjoy ing the inning which they have so long been seeking, and it is indeed fortu nate that at such a time the rudder of the ship of state is held by one of such steady hands and such clear vision the present occupant of the, White House. T. S. CHOKING A TIGER. Presence of Mind Enabled Soldier to Conquer Wounded Animal. Wide-World Magazine: In the moun tainous province of Kirin, formerly one of the three provinces of Manchuria, dispatches are conveyed by soldiers, who ride from one district to another. One day last November a soldier was on his way back to Kirin city, the cap. ital of the province, when he espied a large tiger coming toward him. Dis mounting, he aimed as best he could with a rifle not of the most modern pattern, and fired. The animal, though wounded, was not disabled, and sprang in a fury toward the soldier. For tunately for the man he kept his head, and with the rifle tightly clasped and supported against his chest, awaited the oncoming of the animal. Just as the tiger was ready for the final spring, with his jaws wide open, the soldier jammed the point of the rifle with all his might through the mouth, against the base of the skull. The force of the animal's spring as he rushed for ward no doubt helped to end the strug gle, for in a few minutes the tiger was lying on its side and breathing its last. The plucky soldier rode to the capital, 30 miles away, and report ed the incident to his commander. Half a dozen other soldiers then ac companied him to the spot, and be tween them the animal was carried home and photographed in front of the commander's house, with the dam aged rifle in situ. Robs Sister's Stocking. New York World: "I want a ticket for San Francisco," a boy of fifteen told the ticket agent at the Pennsyl vania depot in Jersey City. "How much is it?" "One hundred and forty dollars,'' re plied the agent, and the boy brought such a big roll of bills from his pocket that the agent became suspicious and called the police. Questioned, the boy broke down and said that he was Charles Cantone, of No. 154 Mott street, where he lived with his sister, Mrs. Lillie Falco, wife of Charles Falco, a butcher. He told the police that his sister had called him early yesterday morn ing and had gone back to bed. He waited until she was asleep and then cut her garter and took $1,000 from her stocking without waking her. After arming himself with Falco's revolver he left the house and went to a Chambers street store, where he purchased a bowie kniie. His idea, he said, was to open a butcher shop in San Francisco. In the boy's pockets, besides the revolver and bowie knife, the police, found $998.10. On learning of the arrest the Falcos hurried to Jersey City to claim their money.
