A PAIR The Contagion of Yawning. "Did you ever notice how conta gious yawning is?" said a round faced young man waiting for a cable train yesterday afternoon.

Women yawn oftener than men, and fat men oftener than lean men. The best time to make them yawn is early in the morning or late at night. Than all they want is a hint and off they go. One night last week l sat next to an old gentle He got on at Tenth street and rode up to Grand aenue. I made him yawn twenty-seven times. Then I was tired but the old fellow had got into the habit and I thought he would split his jaws he kept them so far apart. The young man had scarcely seated himself in the car before he turned around and stared straight at a work ingman opposite, who of course, looked at him. Then the young man leaned his head lazily .against the win dow, closed his eyes opened his mouth very wide and began to yawn with great deliberation and an air of utter weariness. .The man in the blue over alls became interested and stared intently .11 the wide open mouth and the closed eyes The young man put up his hand with affectation of cover ing his mouth.ar.d then as if it was no use to try to check an overpowering impulse, he drew his hand away threw his head still further back and uttered that sound peculiar to the hearty yawner ho-ho. A moment later the man in the blue overalls gave evidence of a twitching of the jaws a spasm shot across his cheeks and then his mouth opened and he yawned so wide that it appeared as though he were goiug to divide and tne top of his head would go on up into space. The workingman was now started and all the way up he kept yawning every few moments. Then the young man turned his attention to an old lady opposite with equal success. RETAIL .
