LOVE SEEN IN NEW LIGHT Old Idea of Affection All Wrong, Ac cording to Pronouncements of Modern Scientists. “Science revolutionizes our ideas.’* The speaker was W. L. George, the English feminist lecturer. He resumed: "A millionaire contractor was com plaining to a scientific friend of mine that a beautiful actress had accepted his proposal of marriage, only he had just discovered that she did so for purely mercenary motives. “But my scientific friend pooh poohed the millionaire contractor’s lament “‘What a queer devil you are!’ he said. ‘You want to be loved for your looks alone—that is, for the position in space of the atoms, ions, molecules .and what-not which chance, working through some Dar winian selective theory, has grouped together in the entity that is your self. Ridiculous! And you hate to be loved for your wealth —for a financial achievement that is to say, which Is an unimpeachable testimo nial to your industry, Intelligence, so briety and virtue.” Mother Goose, Linguist Mary’s mother was improving the shining hours with a little French con versation, which Mary, aged four, was finding somewhat Irksome. To some remark her mother replied “Oul, oui,” at which Mary said, in an exasperated tone: “Don’t talk that pig talk to me.” “That Isn’t pig talk, dear; It’s —” “Yes, it is, too, mother.

S TRAILS ABOUND IN ROMANCE Written Testimonial of the Trial* am Triumphs of the Men Who Fashioned Them. Nothing Is more romantic than th i trail, remarks a writer in the Los An geles Times. It Is the artery of trade and life itself. On land moves about ' the bases of the mountains, out of the lowlands, winding through the chapar ral, along the easy grades of the can yons, never, forcing its way, but defi nitely avoiding the slippery rock face and the poison oak; upward into the ; fresh air that breathes. through the pass; on, through the pass and into the unknown beyond, into the valley of heart’s desire it carries the laden mule and the traveler with his pack. Across the great deaprts the trail is a caravan route, seeking the shades of cliff and avoiding the shifting dunes; stretching unerringly toward the next water hole. It is the written testimo > nlal of the trails and triumphs of the men who have gone before. It Is the only pathway of the devout pilgrim, as of the warlike Bedouin. Every habita tion of man that has ever dominated one of these great trails has made his tory and has been in its day a treasure house. Double Rations. The time had come to dole -out the day’s rations, and In an Irish regiment the quartermaster and his assistant were portioning them out in prepara tion for distribution. At lost, just before the orderly men w£re due to arrive, the assistant turned to the quarter. With a twinkle in his eye, Mike said: “Av ye plaze, sorr, there’s a loaf short. Who’ll I give it to?” “Keep It yourself, Mike,” replied the i quartermaster. Ex-heroes can’t understand why the world has such a short memory. Most men like to test their reform • theories on others.
