Ile dllln't look it, however. on the contrary, there was a healthy grin on his face. "It-it isn't a holiday':" she queried. "Not for the public." he answered, "though I'm manking it one for us. Just a small holiday, you know-one for a cent or two." "But what is it? What's going on?" "Ia. ha., ha! I thought you'd forgot ten all about it. Talk about sentiment. but I believe that husbands have more than wives. Mrs. Bowser, thirty-five years ago today I asked you to be amy little wifey. It's the anniversary of a most happy event, and I thought to celelrato it in a fitting manner." "But hIow came you to remember the day?" she asked. "Oh. I ran across it in an old letter some time ago and carefully ireserved the date. Trust a loving husband to keep track of such things." "IHow good of you! I'm ashamed that I did not remember it myself." "That's all right, little one.

"But I didn't say so at once, did I?" she asked as a blush showed on her cbeeks. "I guess you waited a minute or two before making me the happiest man on earth." "And you haven't been sorry?' "I have thanked heaven every day since and shall till I die. This evening we will go out to dinner, and then it's the theater. We'll just have a Jolly time. Meanwhile I came home to say that I have purchased a trifling me mento of the occasion-somethlng we can look at daily and recall those old days." .You good man! What is It+' "You couldn't guess in a hundred years, but I know you'll be tickled half to death. I was the most fortunate man in the world to get it If I had been fiteen minutes late it would have been gone." "Then it isn't Jewelryy" "Anything to wear?"

There were three men with tshe track. and by the time Mrs. Bowser reached the ate a dozen more and a score of children had gathered. 'hey were saying to each other that it was a bungalow. a monkey house, a mov h a plctare slow, a photograph ga lery and theor things, when Mr. Bow can slaid, with a smile and a tourlsh: "yMrs. Bowser, let me introduce you to the grandet piece of turniture which ever had a place In the palace of a king." "But I can't quilte make out what f ke." "It is the favorlte sideboard of Losnt XVI, and antiquarlans have ailed It almost priceless.
