Just as soon as they got acquainted

“Oh. wc stood it for awhile, but when
we caught them, in tlie guise of merri

“But they're younger than you are."
“Oh, yes. They had the be3t of it
on the real oolebrition3, which come
with greater frequency in the earlier
years of married life, but there were
more of us, and by skipping a few’
years now and then we were able to

scheme to ring in an old couple in the
next block for a diamond wedding,
and we had them beaten proper. They
had to make a sudden trip out of town

we’re a little ahead of them now on
account of a golden wedding that we
worked, and we're ready for them if
