that its presses were stopped one day

columns a statement that Mrs Jones
had won a cut glass water pitcher
and Mrs. Smith had won a chaffing
dish at Airs. Johnson's card party.

was married, and'from what I learn
afterward was one of the moBt de

Of course, I am not married and am

I was rather surprised but all it
stated in tfee body was that the writer
was counting the hours till the time
I should visit her school, and that:

and tried to figure it out. I put off
