CHOSE POOR TIME TO LISTEN Small Donald Got Very Little Satis faction Out of What Elders Called "Intermission." The family was encircled about the radio listening to WLK's program. The receivers were being inter changed at intervals so that each member got a fair share of the en tertainment. "What's on now?" was a frequent remark and father with the receivers clamped on his ears would talk I,,ld, saying, "Pilano. Fine! Fine!" Then after a pause, "Here, mother, you want to hear this vocal number now?" and mother would take over the recelvers. It came Betty's turn. She enjoyed a number and then she heard inter mission announced. "What's on now. Betty?" someone nasked, and smilingly she said, "It is intermission now." At once eight-year-old Ionald put out his hands appealingly for the re ceivers saying, "I want to hear some of that." Everybody laughed and some tried to explain, but he insisted on hearing "some of It." Mother said. "Let him," so Donald listened to lintermission and finally announced rather disgust edly, "Why, I don't hear nothin'."-In dianapolls News. To Protect Christian Missions. The new political status of Egypt carries with it certain provisos whose exact limits are not yet defined, but whose general character and scope are known. The first proviso, however, seems to insure the permanency of the Christian missionary work. Under the new constitution all religions are free and are protected by the state, in so far as they do not interfere with pub lic order or morals. All Egyptian citi zens are declared equal before the law and all are eligible for public offices and honors. This situation presents to all of the Christian missionary work in Egypt an unusual opportunity. The Christian educational work is especially face to face with a challenge seldom equaled. Sunshades That Sit Over the Hat. Tourists in Greece during the last summer have been struck by the "hot hats" offered in the streets of Athens. They are of light silk or muslin with out a crown of any description, as they are built over a large, light frame that fits over the regulation hat. Though known under the name of hats, they are in better truth sun shades. They are said to lessen ma terially the discomfort of the Mediter ranean sun, and to be in general use in Greece. Perhaps we shall yet see them on this side of the ocean. Scientific American. Misplaced Energy. "Son. I'm afraid you are not trying to make yourself useful about the of. See."

And Bah, who was the soul of honor, meekly obeyed, although It hurt her to think that Jack did not share his ideas with her. Came at last the day when the tale was completed; and Jack departed buoyantly ilth the long manuscript envelope In his pocket, without sub mitting this work of his fancy for Bab's approval. In the basket at the side of his desk lay a sheaf of papers, torn carelessly to halves. Glancing idly at them as she emptied the ash tray, Bab per ceived that they were typewritten, with corrections made here and there la ink. Quick as a flash she pounced upen them-the first draft of the mys terious story. It was the work of but a few minutes to piece the sheets to gether, and there, ain bold capitals the title stared up at her: "The Third Silde of the Triangle." With a little gasp, she commenced reading. When she had reached the end of the second page. two scarlet spots burned la her cheeks.ka When she had afinished two sheets more, she could stand It no longer. Of course, there wars another woman in his life. He could never plead his hero's cause so feelungly without hav Ing had the eperience of a secret loe. To think that there had bees someone else all this time, "a willowy, elvret-eyed charmer," to quote Jack's typewritten descrlption of his heroise. It uas too much! Well, Bab decided hastily, she would stand in the way of his happinem no longer. Fleeing to her room, she got into her street clothes and with tearful hasuto crammed some thlngs Into her travel lai baeg. So this was to be the end of thinga-tor her, at least. For Jack It wuas to be but the beginning, Judgitg by his story. After pinnaing uan almost illegibly scrawled note to Jack's smok ing jacket, she cast one last heart broken glance about their little love at and then took her departure. *Three hours later she was sobbaing out the tragic tale of her shattered married life eo her mother's syrmp thetic bosom-all about Jack's romance of the mlmnated man and his later meeting with the right woman; his stnruggle to remain true to his promise to the trusaag wife; his final capltula tion and his attempts to keep the truth from being known. That was as far as she had perused the story. Even as she falteringly recounted the tale of woe, she wondered what had been the fate of the deceivred wife and how Jack's story had been concluded. "But. honey." her mother sought to t--sole the dlslluslioned young wif "don't you think you bre misjudgln Jack? For my part, I am content to belleve that It was wholly an Imagi anry thing-most sane, right-minded men thank their stars If they have a good wife at home and wouldn't knoew a vampire If they saw one. Anyhow,. I shouldn't be surprised if Jack could write. I always thought be was a right smart young man." "Nonsense, mother; It would talke amore than Imagination to write a story Srealistle a that Well. It makes a difterece to me now." That evein, as Bob was maklng a pretetnse of reading the newspaper and, Incidentally, falling miserably at It. ithi telephone pwealed forth a shrill sutiinlons; and J.luk's voice, filled withl agitated curiosity, met his wife's "'\\'hat en earth has happened. Bab -what have I tlone?" he questioned In Ihelr blldermlent. "Surely It is not necessary for me to tell 3%u that." parried Bab stiffly, "I aun thankful that I dlisc.overedl it 1when I did, for I should most certainly not a ishi to remaaln a barrier to your hal~lel iess."

"No. I won't ha-ve you come.

However, Bah remnin'lned adamant, masking her real feee!lngs with a carefully assumed at tittleh of indifference. although the ihouht that Jack had really joined his secret love almost drove ther fran tic. So it was with a leap of joy in her heart that she heard his vo,iee over the 'phone one golden morning. "About ready to comle home, Bah? If you are, I'1 run out in the car for you. I've the most wonderful bit of news !" Half angry at herself for her un concealed pleasure. Bab assented. "But tell me the good news this minute." she demanded. "Well, if I must, my story won the first prize In the Times contest-you remember they were offering a $200 prize for the best story of a thousand words?" "I'll say I do." replied Bab, Inele gantly. "By the way," Innocently, "Just what was the story about?" "Oh, that's the funny part," laughed Jack. "I simply turned one of the big neewspaper matrimonial scandals Into fction-you know the stuff-a little hline broken up by a scheming, soul less vampire." "Yes. and how did it end?" queried Babh, breathlessly. "Why. of course the meek, trusting little wife came out victorious; she always does." "You wonderful boy-I can hardly wait to see you," Bab cried with re lief. With a happy smile, she hung up, and commenced to plan Just how she would spend that prize money. "MILLINERY" AND "MILUNER" These Modern Words Had Their Birth in the Old Italian City of Milan. The origin of words of coAtmon use leads the philologist hack to unexpect ed sources. The word "millinery," of course, is derived from the word "mil liner," but it has no allusion, as might be supposed, to the fact that women wear a thousand and one different combinations of headgear, observes the Detrolt News. Women's hats and bonnets have from time Immemorial been decked with bits of rlbbon and velvet. It so happened that the old city oif Milan, Italy. was famous for it, production of silks and ribbons. In early times the spelling of the name of the city was diferent, belinl known at one time as Milllae and later as Milleyne. FPoe the reason that the ecncotlon of wom. en's headgear consisted chiefly of ribl bons from Milan. the artisan came to be styled a milleyner, and her product as milleynery. 8pelling reforms did the rest and gave us the modern terma In like manner the city of Mantua, Italy, became famous for the art of itU dresas and cloakmakers, so today, hun dreds of years after kantua has eassed to be a dresmaking center, fashionable dressmakers style them selves "mantua-makers" Behind the Seenes.
