A man an a woman started to travel together. Ho went by reason, an' she by Instinct. What about It? Nothln'; only she was the one that got there. It's the unexpected that happens with men. 'Taln't so with women; they're sorter got to expoctln the time fer wnshln' an' wlpin' dlslres to come 'round regularly, an' It does. Podger says that ho don't take no stock In relceglon; but when I says to him, says I, "Podger, did your old mother's prayers ever seem to lead you astray any?" you oughter heard how still ho kept. Needln' ono hand to hold her satchel, an' another to feel an' seo if she's hangin together behind, It's always seemed a burnln' shame to me that Nacher didn't give lovely woman another hand fer ger'ral an' miscel lanyus purposes. I look on this New Woman move ment with 'splcion. Tho Old Woman was so blame much better'n I bo that if they're goln' to improve her I'm 'frald she'll git out o' my speer; an' if they ain't, what's the uso o monkoyln'? Four Track News.

There's a heap of fellera with nol enough sense to keep hogs out of th4 cornfield that think they can run th( government Some rich men give millions to col leges and universities, yet they kicS llko a bay steer when tho tax asses sor comes around for their share ol tho public school fund.

London Daily Express. Newton Had Jealous Mothti Tho bachelorhood of Sir Isaac Nn ton was a puzzle to some of his con temporaries, but others knew lie r( malned single solely on account or In mother.

Tho summer days that wo hnve knonn Will all forgotten bo and flown; Tho garden will bo overgrown Whero now the roses fall. A hundred years from now, fond heart. We'll neither lenow nor care, What came of all life's bitterness Or followed love's despair. When all these years havo flown, sweet heart, Tho grief will all bo o'er; The sea of care will surge In vain Upon tho careless shore. A hundred years from now, sweetheart, Wo will not mind the pain; The throbbing crimson tfde of life Will not havo left a stain. This song wo sing together, dear, Will mean no more than means a tear, Let's build one cnstlo more In fapain. And ono moro dream dream here. Lambert Norman Jackson. The Baby Explains.
