"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
"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
"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
"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
"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
Westcott eyed his wife in admira
"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."

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
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:
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"
