International Banana Food Company Corn Exchange Bank Building CHICAGO Children Cry FOR FLETCHER'S O A S O I A Social Obligations "Dear," said Mrs. Westcott dramat ically to her husband as she took the newspaper out of his hands to compel him to give his undivided attention to her, "we've got to entertain! That's all there is to it!" "Well, why have we?" demanded Westcott. "Why. I'm simply ashamed to look our friends in the face, and actually the Ruggleses and the Squires will think we are stingy! They've lived here nearly a year and I've never even had a luncheon in all that time! Think of it! And I receive invita tions almost every day! But there's one comfort—I don't go any more! So I really don't owe a lot of people more than the invitation myself." Westcott listened helplessly, trying in vain to catch a glimpse of the headlines in the newspaper that his wife held. "Yes," he said, in a most desultory manner, feeling in duty bound to make some remark in the pause. "Yes, that's it!" went on Mrs. West cott. "We'll entertain! We'll do some thing big, too! Come, help me plan!" She beamed on him as she threw the newspaper behind her, regardless of its landing on the floor. "But," remonstrated her husband, weakly, "these big affairs are—are rather an expense, aren't they?" "Oh, why didn't I think of It be fore?" Mrs. Westcott asked, ignor ing his remark. "There, they've been gone only two months and I've owed them something so long! I could have had it a week, say after they sailed and She paused in rapt contemplation. "Why, my dear," interposed West cott, surprised by the peculiar trend of his wife's remarks. "You say you wish you could have given it a week after they sailed! I assume that you mean the Rankins. But why a week after they sailed? Why was that time any better than the present?" "Why, you see," Mrs. Westcott gazed on him in pity for his lack of comprehension, "you see, I could have Invited them!" Westcott took a deep breath. He looked at his wife earnestly while his brain tried to fathom the mystery/ "You wanted to give it early so you could invite the Rankins to come' to it a week after they sailed! Ah, yes! So clear—so—so—shall we call it lucid?" "Oh, bother!" Mrs. Westcott impa tiently exclaimed. "Why can't you understand things? I always have to explain everything to you! If I in vited them then they'd owe me ah irr-" vitation. I'd have paid what I owe them, but they couldn't come because they'd be sailing for Europe at the time." Westcott eyed his wife in admira tion. "Are you going to—to run the whole party on the same principle?" he queried, respectfully. "Well, we'll issue about twice as many invitations as the house can hold," she explained, the fire of vic tory in her eyes. "There are the Browns. They're going to Florida this winter. I heard that they leave In about a week. That's five, for I'd have to have the girls, too." She looked at her husband exultantly. "Oh, and there are the Warrens and the Smiths. They're going hunting to gether this fall somewhere up north and they'll be gone a month, I know! That's seven with Mr. Warren's sis ters!" Westcott pulled out an en velope and put down the figures." "Then there are the doctor and his mother. He told me the other day that she wasn't at all well and he thought he'd take a run out west to go with her to his sisters in Cali fornia. I could invite them!" "And there arte the minister and his wife and his son and daughter," put In Westcott, with proper pride in his 3flering. "He's going to accept that church in Rochester. So we can in vite them!" Mrs. Westcott glanced at her hus band to detect any fraud in his air of frankness, but he was adding the names to his list enthusiastically. "There are twenty that can't come," he counted, finally. Mrs. Westcott sighed a deep sigh of thanksgiving. "That's all right, then," she said. "Now, we'll just ask our own immediate friends in to tea that night and have a good time. That'll be eight or ten altogether— and, thank goodness, most of my obli gations will be paid!" Then she handed his newspaper to blm smilingly. Sarcastic Man. "Well," said the sarcastic man, as tie walked out of the concert between numbers, "I'm ever so much obliged :o the girl who sits in front of me. I don't know what her name is, but I'm bliged to her." "You mean the one with the fright fully high coiffure?" "That's the girl. And she's got a bow on top of that." "I don't see what you're obliged to aer for." "For not carrying an umbrella." His Nature. "That informer is a pig!" "Which explains how he came laueal." to FOOD VALUE OF CHESTNUTS Are Rich in Starch and Pat, Better Than Potatoes and Almost Good as Bread. In France much attention is given to the propagating of the chestnut, and the fruit is spoken of with enthu siasm and respect. In French litera ture, especially in stories for children, the chestnut tree is quite as impor tant a feature as the plum tree in the politics of this country, where we Bpeak lightly of the chestnut and then pay at the rate of $5 a bushel for them. The small French chestnut is called the "chataigne," but the large or giant chestnut is the "mar ron." The marron is cultivated ex tensively in France and Italy, where it is used in large quantities. "Every soda fountain menu," says the New York Soda Fountain, a trade journal, "has some reference to mar rons, and marrons glace are a favor ite after-dinner morsel at all the larg er hotels, yet few persons realize that while primarily a dessert delicacy, marrons are an exceedingly whole some and valuable food. It is not generally known thai the fruit of the chestnut tree is nearly as valuable as bread and more valuable than po tatoes as a food, being rich in starch and fat." In some districts of Pennsylvania much attention is now given to the planting of chestnut trees. There are several hill counties in Indiana, like Brown, Monroe and Morgan, where the marron and the smaller sized chestnuts could be made a source of profit. MAKES A BIG DISCOVERY Bhortlngton Finds That Things Once Bemoaned May Prove Great est Blessing. "You know how opposites are at tracted," said Mr. Shortington. "When I was a younger man my eery particular friend and chum was a chap who was six feet four, while wasn't much more than four feet: bIx. Despite the disparity in our di mensions we were the closest of friends, and as far as I was concern ed there was only one thing that marred my otherwise complete happi ness and that was that I could not be as tall as he. But the time came when I thought differently about that, and when in fact, he, instead of be ing proud of his altitude, wished only that he had been built on my more limited scale, and that was when in aur later life we had both come to be afflicted with rheumatism. "Then when I looked at him, racked with pain throughout his tall frame, was glad that I was not tall but short and when he reflected on the nearly two feet more of space in him self that the rheumatism had to roam Dver he used to groan and wish that he had been built short like me. "Isn't it singular how things come about? The things that at one time are may most bemoan may prove in Jie end our greatest blessing." Wife Wins, as Usual. "Of course, one can never win an argument with one's wife," remarked a broker the other day. "Even if one is perfectly right in his contention, the fates, or the postoffice department Dr something else will turn up to make it appear that the man is wrong.' For instance, a few days ago my wife remarked that a letter in a plain en-', velope dropped in a letter box would. De delivered even if it had no stamp., Of course I knew better, and told her so, but she was obstinate. Just tO' prove my contention when I was at :he office the next day I drew a pic ture of a goose on a sheet of paper. Underneath the likeness I wrote:. "Dear Madam: If you pay two cents to get this you are a goose.' I put the sheet in a plain envelope and ad iressed it to my wife. The next morning the doorbell rang furiously while I was still in bed. I waited for the wife or the maid to respond, but both had gone out. Finally I went to the door myself. There was a fool letter carrier with that crazy letter, ind I had to dig down and pay the two cents postage due. If I had given :he letter to my wife she would have seen still more firmly convinced that ihe was right." What He Remembered. When a prospective voter in one of Chicago's election districts was asked the date of his naturalization he re plied that he had taken out his pa pers so long before that he could not remember just when he had become in American. Th© officer to whom this statement tfas made was extremely thoughtful !or a moment. Then he added: "Can you remember who was the Republican candidate for president that year? "Sure, I don't remember who was running for prisidint," was the re sponse, "but it was the same year that Stuffy McGinnls was appointed Dog Drownder." Common In New York. The stranger in New York was star tied by the clanging of an ambulance tell. The ambulance stopped at the lide door of a hotel and the attend ints hurriedly entered the building ifith their stretcher. But there was io crowd, no confusion. "What's the excitement?" the stran-: jer asked a native. "There's no excitement," the latter replied. "A stage lady has shot a' wealthy gentleman. That's alL" And he hurried along.—Cleveland! Dealer.
