The partridge.-, passing down the street, came across the tailor monkey, who was engaged on some work for one of his customers. "How are you getting along?" asked the partridge. "Oh, just so-so!" replied the tailor monkey. "Sew-so?" inquired the partridge. "Yes, sew-so and so-so, too," answer ed the good natured monkey as he took another stitch in the cloth. "Do you find the work hard?" in quired the partridge. "Yes, hut I have little ideas that help to make it easy." replied the monkey. "For instance, I hold the thread on my toe to keep it from getting tangled." "Toto?" asked the partridge. "Yes, toto and toe to too." "You have a noose in the thread now." "No, that is a knot, not noose." "Not-not?" "Yes, not not and knot not also." "Did you know I was a punster?" "Did I know-? No." "No-no?" "No; no no-no. Know? No." And then the two started laughing, and they laughed so heartily over their word twisters that it broke up the whole day's work of the tailor monkey. St. Louis Tost-Dispatch. Josiali In the Zoo. Terhaps many boys and girls remem ber that last spring President Roose velt brought home from his western trip a little badger wLjch was given him by a little Kansas girl. The badger was named Josiah and became a favorite pet o" the Roosevelt 'children. He spent the summer with them at Oyster Bay and might have remained an indefinite time if he had kept up being as playful and harmless as he started out to be. But, alas, he developed an ugly tem per and showed his teeth, and it was decided that he could not be retained in the president's household. So he was given to a New York zoo, and there he is today. All In Their Eyes. Blanche and Elsie were making a doll dress out of a steel gray piece of goods. "I think this will make a pretty dress," said Blanche. "I always did like blue." "This isn't blue," said Elsie; "it's gray." "No, it isn't; it's blue," retorted Blanche. "Oh," said Elsie, a light breaking over her face, "of course it looks blue to you because your eyes are blue, and it looks gray to me because I've got gray eyes." Little Chronicle. The Game of Lausrli. The game of laugh is new and very funny if a large number plays. The one who is "it" points his finper to some one and says, "Laugh!" The one indicated must say, "Ha!" If he smiles, he must pay a forfeit, or if any one c.'se shows signs of merriment he must do the same. The next one pointed at must say, "Ha, ha!" the nest, "Ila, ha, ha!" and so on as far as it is possi ble. If the right number of "Ha's!" is not said, a forfeit must be paid. It is very hard to keep from laughing, and the game usually ends with a hearty laugh from all. Playing? ITostesH. When Maggie takes her Thursday out, I have a lot of fun.

Address Dr. R. V. Pierce, Buffalo, N. Y. LIGHT HER FIRST PROPOSAL By KEITH GORDON m Copuright, 190S. b; T. C. McClure It was the softest of spring days, and Mowbray and Miss Farrar strolled through the greenery of the park with the languid abstraction born of the first warm weather and a friendship of several years' standing. Though their eyes drank in the beauty of the scene about them the great stretches of greensward, the trees and bushes that were bursting into the tender green of the season as into a sort of silent song neither of them was thinking of it. Miss Farrar, indeed, was living over other days inevitably brought back by the warm breeze and the smell of growing things other springtimes when life meant only the beautiful pos sibility of love. And Mowbray was thinking of her and wondering if by any chance it would be worth while to tell her, for in spite of her unquestion able attractiveness he could not help feeling that he would find it hard to look into those calm, clear eyes and talk of love. Yet he was neither cow ardly nor inexperienced. He simply had a natural shrinking from being regarded with suppressed amusement by the woman he loved. And in her ap parent immunity from such emotions that was what he feared. She would in all probability only laugh her light, frank laugh Ucd say, "Nonsense, Clark; don't be silly !" He sent a speculative glance toward her as she walked beside him looking off into the distance with the preoccu pied air of a woman whose whole mind was given to some engrossing and per sistent thought. "Let us sit for awhile," she proposed as they reached the top of a knoll where, under a solitary tree, a bench in vited relaxation. Suiting the action to the word, she seated herself com fortably with her elbows placed de fiantly on the back of the bench, an attitude peculiar to "her aggressive moods and one wThich Mowbray had learned to recognize as premonitory of an intention to talk tilings out to a fin ish. He. wondered what it would be this time, for he had long since dropped into his role of mentor. He waited patiently with eyes that roved carelessly over the mansions on the far side of Fifth avenue, which in turn sent back a well bred stare, know ing that her feelings would soon reach the point of overflow. At hist she broke the silence. "Do I look to you like a person se lected by fate to be distinguished among women disagreeably distinguished, I mean?" she demanded, turning toward him with a directness which challenged a truthful answer. He regarded her in a manner intended to convey that he was making an expert examination. "No," he admitted, "I can't say that you do that is" He stopped rather vaguely. "Oh, now don't try to soften the truth," she interrupted quickly. "I'm after facts, and I am not going to lay anything you may say up against you." "I haven't the least idea what it is about, but I am glad that there is go ing to be no animosity," Mowbray ob served politely. Then he settled him self to listen. It was one of his virtues that he never missed his cue. Her next wrords came out rather ab ruptly. "I'm not especially plain, do you think?" Her tone was deprecating, but she turned her face toward him in a man ner as Impersonal as if she were call ing his attention to the landscape. Then she continued impartially: "That is, I suppose I would be classed as 'fair to middling.' " He nodded assent with a gleam of mischief in his eye. "To tell you the truth" her tone had dropped into the personal, confidential key "I'm ' not at all conceited about my looks, but I've always flattered my self that I am rather interesting." The statement ended with a rising in flection which made it a question, and it wras evident that she was awaiting his decision with some anxiety. "Bather interesting, I think we may say," he agreed suavely. "And I'm sure I'm affectionate and fairly good tempered and and" Mowbray encouraged her by a nod. "and domestic." "I shall have to take your word for that." "Well, I am domestic. I know I am! So I want you to explain to me" her voice was growing tumultuous "but first promise on your honor that you'll never tell how it is that I've reached the age of thirty-three without ever having had a proposal." Mowbray threw himself back and roared, while her arms came down off the bench and she dropped her face upon her hands and sat looking at him with the puzzled air of a pupil at the feet of a master. "When you've done laughing," she began with dignity. "Pardon, dear, a thousand pardons!' He had never called her that before, and there was something in his voice which bespoke a new hope and con fidence, but she was too engrossed In her pursuit of self knowledge- to no tice. "I forgot to say that I'm sensible. Men always like that, you know. Any way, they protend to." She finished in a way that suggested that she had her doubt of their sin cerity. With a mighty effort her com panion swallowed his mirth and pre pared to face the situation with her. "Is it because you haven't wanted any one to ask you?" he inquired diplo matiraiiy. - "No. indeed!". "And no man has ever told you that he loved you?" he murmured in a thoughtful tone. "Strange!" "Well now I didn't say just that, you know!" There was a faint suspicion of a blush on Miss Farrar's smooth cheeks, but her glance met Mowbray's with its usual unswerving honesty. "Men have told me that they loved me several of them! But that's not a proposal, you know, any more than it's a purchase when I say that I adore a string of pearls at Tiffany's!" "A-a-h!" The ejaculation was full of enlighten ment. Mowbray was beginning at last to understand things that had always puzzled him, as his next question showed. "Would it be impertinent to ask how you have received these declarations?" "Why, I just listened! You see, it's embarrassing. It makes one feel so terribly conscious." "What about the man?" Mowbray asked quietly. "Doesn't it occur to you that perhaps he might need a little encouragement that perhaps lie might be a trifle conscious too?" - . For a moment there was silence be tween them. The point of view was utterly new to Miss Farrar, and she was bviously impressed hy it. "I never thought of that," she ad mitted slowly. T thought that sort of thing was so in a man's line his metier." She laughed a bit ruefully. A squirrel darted swiftly across the grass and, turning its head jauntily to one side, fixed a bright, inquiring eye upon them. Then, with a saucy wave of its tail, it scurried away. "I have it," said Mowbray, "I have it! Learn from the squirrel! Light ness, airiness, eoquettishness! Don't you see what I mean?" And he looked at her teasingly. But she was not to be diverted. "I am serious," she assured him. 'There's always a reason for everything, and there must be a reason for this. There's Alice Nixon. She's not so awfully pretty. I heard her say that she had had nineteen proposals!" Miss Far rar's voice was touched with awe. Then a skeptical thought seized her. "Still she's from the south!" she add ed, and her tone implied that an allow ance should be made for the fact. Mowbray bit his lip. "Then there's her sister just an ordi narily nice girl follows with fifteen. Marion Pierce owns up to a dozen, and Beth Garrett dear, homely Beth ac knowledges six! I asked her because I specially wanted to find out. Ter haps you can imagine how queer it makes me feel." "What do you say upon such occa sions?" demanded Mowbray, watching the squirrel that was again eying them from a distance. There was a palpable pause before Miss Farrar replied. But at last her straightforwardness prevailed. "Sometimes I shake my head and look rather shocked. Then they think that I disapprove of such conversations think I'm noble, you know! At other times I laugh and say, ,T have never had one! in a tone which implies just the reverse." She finished this confession and look ed at Mowbray out of the corner of her eyes in a way that drove the last ves tige of fear out of his mind. This naive woman, the person whose dignity and coldness he had stood aloof from in absolute embarrassment for so long! He could have laughed at the absurdity of it. Why had she never shown' him her real self before? "I think I shall propose to you," he remarked deliberately. For a second she looked surprised, and then her ej'es danced. "Let it be In your best style," she pleaded. "Remember, it's my first, and I fear it may be my last too!" He leaned toward her and looked straight into her eyes. "It will be your last, undoubtedly!" His voice was low and tense. For a long moment he looked at her looked in a way that first made her small ears burn and then troubled her clear gaze, which wavered and fell. "I love you, dear," he said simply, "and I think you know the rest. Tell me that you do." Her cheeks were hot and her lips trembled. A strong hand reached out and took hers in a masterful way. and she suddenly knew that something which she had never even dreamed was true. ' "But I asked you!" she moaned when at last she recovered something of her wonted serenity. "I positively asked you!" "You encouraged me," he corrected, "and that's what they usually do, only your method was brutally direct." It was when she began to flush again that he added, "I shall always have something to tease you about, dearest." And the squirrel, which had been watching them in the lingering hope that they might possibly have brought him nuts, like sensible people, gave up In disgust and scurried away. Fontenelle'N Presence of Mind. The distinguished French author, Fontenelle, was fond of asparagus cooked in butter. Cardinal Dubois was equally in love with the vegetable serv ed with white sauce. Being once invited to dine together at the house of a friend the effort was made to gratify the palates of both by preparing half the asparagus with but ter and half with white sauce. While the preparations were in progress the news was brought in that the cardinal was dead. Fontenelle did not wait a moment. Rushing to the door of the kitchen, he cried to the chef: "Jean, Jean! You may cook all the asparagus In butter." ALL ON FIRE. A Richmond Citizen Tells How Relief Came. Ever have Eczema? Have any itching skin disease?
