In Bavaria, where the crown prince,
and Indeed all Pruqpians, are hated,
they tell a story about a burglar.
A burglar, the story runs, returned
home In the dawn light in a dreadful
temper.
"What's the matter?" said his wife.
"Didn't yon have no lnck?"
"Luck? Naw!" snarled the burglar.
"I made a mistake In the blackness,
and tried to burgle the palace where
the crown prince lives. He was home,
too."
"Oh." said the burglar's wife, "what
a misfortune ! I was wonderin' how It
was that you come back with nothin'
but your underwear on."

The Remedy.
Discussing the influenza epidemic
and the many so-called Influenza cures,
Dr. Horace Whitney Williams said In
a lecture at the University of Chicago :
"Isolation, warmth and perfect care
are the only treatment. The so-called
cures remind me of a story about a
grocer. To this grocer a patron
brought back a pound of butter.
" 'I want to complain about this but
ter. It's awful,' the patron said.
"The grocer sniffed it. 'Smells
sweet enough to me,' he observed.
'"But, it's full of hair,' said the
patron. T counted eight or nine hairs
in it. Yes, sir, this butter's full of
hair, and I want to know what you're
going to do about It.'
"'Why, make it right, of course/
said the grocer genially, and he
reached up and took a tiny packet
from a shelf. 'Here. Here's a packet
of hairpins. You can pin it back with
'em as you go along.'"

Great Soldier Democratic.
General Sir Douglas Haig, British
commander In chief, called at an Amer
ican headquarters, and around this
headquarters they still talk much of
his visit. They like him.
The headquarters was in the edge of
a wood. It had been raining. A ser
geant found the general trying to keep
his footing on slippery duckboards
while he endeavored to ascertain the
whereabouts of the American com
mander's hut from the sign boards.
The sergeant led him to the place he
sought, but the American commander
and most of his staff, following his
troops, had left for a more advanced
P. C. Two second lieutenants and two
sergeants were holding down the re
cently vacated office.
"I'm Haig," said the general In such
an 'Tm Bill Jones" tone of voice that
the Americans didn't realize who their
visitor was for a full half minute.
When they did they explained that
their commander had gone up ahead.
"Just wanted to wish him luck," said
the general. Then he shook hands
with the two lieutenants and the two
sergeants and left.—Stars and Stripes.
