At the approach of the first Christmas after the wedding, a certain bride, desirious of giving her best beloved something made by her own affectionate but inex perienced hands, manufactured a truly wonderful nightshirt. It was made of pink and white outing flan nel, trimmed with lace-edged ruffles, and was further embellished with rows of elaborate feather-stitching, The surprised husband expressed a proper amount of gratitude, and said with truth that he had nev er beheld a garment to compare with it; but when asked later why he did not wear it, he replied that it was Far too good For human nature's daily food, and that he was saving1 it for some occasion that really demanded a nightshirt of more than ordinary gorgeousness. It was just the thing, he averred, to wear if one happened to be convalescing from a broken limb or a long attack of feyer. But one day the husband tele phoned that he was unexpectedly called out of town on business and requested his wife to pack his va lise and to have it at the station within the hour, all of which she did. Feeling tired after a long day's ride, and having nothing better to occupy his time, the man went to his room at nine o'clock that night, intending to go at once to bed. When he unpacked his valise he discovered that the long dreaded "special occasion" had arrived, for there, folded neatly in the valise, was the pink and white nightshirt, ribbons, ruffles and all. The traveller was slightly bald, he wore a sandy mustache, and when he tied the broad pink ribbons in a bow under his decidedly mas culine chin, he made a picture never to be forgotten. He was just about to climb into bed, hoping fervently that no sudden alarm of fire would render it necessary for him to appear unexpectedly in pub lic, when he was startled by a loud rapping at his door. Supposing his visitor to be the bearer of an expected telegram, he opened the door to find himself confronted by the last person he wanted to see or to be seen by in the circumstances. His caller, a man upon whom, for business rea sons, he was desirous of making a favorable impression, had discover ed his name on the hotel register. "Good gracious!" exclained the astonished visitor. "Are vou on your way to a fancy dress ball?" "No," returned the embarassed victunv "I'm merely getting ready to go to bed in the nightshirt that my wife made me for Christmas." The young- wife subsequently considered it strange that her hus band was never afterward able to recall the name of the town in which he absent-mindedly left that unexampled nightshirt under the hotel pillow. "There were seven yards of lace on it, too," she would sometimes sigh, regretfully, "and four yards j of ribbon; but never mind, dear, I'll make you another some time." Sick Ileadache. This distressing- ailment re sults from a disordered condi tion of the stomach and is quick ly cured by Chamberlain's Stom ach and Liver Tablets. For sale by Thompson Drug- Co.

For the purpose of enlarging the Public's knowledge of the true conditions holding in North west Texas (The Panhandle) "The Denver Road" has put in effect round-trip party home seekers rates to points along its line.
