Not Much of Bathing Suit to Boast of —A Study in Philology—How the Up-to-Oate Girl Receives a Proposal of Marriage. How He Proposed. He wished to propose to the girl of his choice, but he was nervous. First he thought of the old romantic style: “By my halidom, fair one, I would fain take thee for my bride. Say thou wilt be mine, and ere the sun gilds the turrets of yonder castle the friar shall unite us in holy bonds.” In the face of the prevalent rage for dramas of the olden style, this form seemed satisfactory. Be.r'g an emin ently modern young man. however, he thought again and determined to test the theatrical mode. But just at that moment the fair Mary tripped into the room, and he blurted out: “Er—Mary—er—will— you—er— well —" But Mary was far rrom being con trary. “O, that's all right, George,” site said, “I know what you mean. Why, of course, 1 will. Papa will be delighted.” A Study in Philology. Morgiana had just poured boiling oil on tne forty tnieves wuen the robber captain gave the signal. Receiving no answer, he lifted the lid f-om the near est receptacle, only to discover the fate of his men. “Wouldn’t that jar you?” he ex claimed to Ali Baoa, witn tpars in his eyes. “Not me,” replied his host; “but it certainly was pot luck.” —New York Times. A Great Bargain. Mrs. Winks —A peddler was here to day, and I got the greatest bargain— a whole pound of insect powder for only 10 cents. It looks just like dirt, but it’s awfully effective. I tried it. Mr. Winks —Worked, eh? Mrs. Winks —Yes, Indeed. The ped dler said I should put a little in water and apply it boiling hot, and I did, and it killed every insect it touched.—New York Weekly. Sufficient Proof. "But,” protested the opera singer who was stranded, "I sing in ze grand opery.” “How do I know that?” spoke up the hotel clerk. “I will prove that I speak only ze truth. I have twenty testimonials zat I use somebody’s tonic.” The evidence was sufficient and the star was assigned to the best room in the house. Partly True. Rev. Goodman —Mr. Slick, our Sun day school superintendent is a tried and trusted employ of yours, is he not? Banker —He was trusted and he’ll bo tried, if we're only fortunate enough to catch him. Very Little Of It. Lotta Coyne—What do you think of her new bathing suit? I. McKidder —Nothing to boast of. Unnecessary Labor. Bettina—l’ve changed my mind, Willie; we won’t go and play with the Richleighs this afternoon.” William —You won’t? Now, see what you've made me do. I’ve gone and washed my face and hands for nothing. Cause for Suspicion. “Amy feels terribly about her new dress. She knows it isn’t a bit be coming.” “What makes her think so?” “Why, several of her girl friends have told her it looks perfectly sweet.” Faint Heart Won. Dora —How many times did you re fuse Jack before you accepted him? Ethel —Only once. He seemed so discouraged I was afraid to try It again.—New York Weekly. ‘i ney V/cre Attentive. A clergyman, p.eaching in a coun try church for the first time, was delighted to fird the congregation very attentive, and told i-ie verger so after the service. The verger replied: “Lor’ bless you, sir, we was all looking for you to disappear.” “Why, what do you mean?” said the clergyman. “Well, sir, you see the pulpit is rotten and hasn’t been preached in this ten year or more.” —Pearson's Weekly. What He Said. “Never,” said the person of good advice to the delicately nurtured Bos ton youth, “never say ‘I can’t.’ ” “Indeed, sir,” responded the Intel lectual lad, “I trust that my diction is not so open to criticism. If you will but be attentive to my conversation you will observe that I say ‘cawn’t.’ ” Still Eligible. He —You haven’t changed any sine® last summer. She —I’ve changed my name. He—Married? She —No; divorced. Discounting the Bill. Westend—ls your wife going away for the summer? Northside—No; I couldn’t afford It, so I put up a job on her and now noth ing on earth could induce her to leave town. Westend—How did you manage it? Northside—Let her catch me flirting with the young widow who lives just across the street from us. Wanted to Suit Everybody. “You ask for my daughter’s hand in marriage. When do you want to marry her?” “I will leave that with your daugh ter.” “Do you wsh for a fashionable or a quiet wedding?” "Her mother can determine that.” “What is your income.” “I’ll leave that entirely to you, sir.” Strangers Now. Brown—How’s your friend Short leigh? Green—Oh, we are no longer friends. Brown —Why, how's that?” Green —He permitted me to loan him $5 the other day. and I don’t suppose he will ever forget me for being such a fool. a Planting. First Neighbor—Hello, you look busy. W T hat are you doing? Second Neighbor—Planting some of my seeds, that’s all. First Neighbor (suspiciously)— H’m! Thought it looked as if you were planting one of my hens. Second Neighbor—Well, that’s all right. The seeds are inside.—Moon shine. Appreciated at Last. “What did you think of my gradu ation essay?” asked Marguerite. “It made me proud of you,” an swered her father. “I felt that I had not previously appreciated your true worth. You don’t know bow interest ing* and sensible that essay made your every-day conversation seem by com parison.” Up to Date. Agent—This edition of the Bible Is the very latest. Housekeeper—But surely you can’t improve on the Bible. Agent—l refer especially to the “Family Register.” Besides a page each for births, deaths, and marriages we give three pages for divorces. At Her Own Risk. “Keep your mouth shut,” exclaimed the brutal husband, who was teaching his wife to play ping-pong. “How date you speak to me like that!” she demanded. “All right, then, keep it open,” he acquiesced, “but, remember. If the ball is lost, you pay for it.” The Fitness of Things. “You say the bridal couple got into the carriage amid a shower of beans?” ‘ Yes.” “But I thought it was the custom to throw rice.” “Of course. But these young people were married In Boston. MEDICAL EXAMINER Of the United States Treasury Recom mends Pe-ru-na. The Women Also Recoin.- mend Pexruxna. Miss Blanch Grey, 174 Alabama street, Memphis, Tenn„‘a society woman of Memphis, writes: “To a society woman whose ner vous force is often taxed to the utmost from lack of rest and irregular meals I know of nothing which is of so much benefit as Peruna.
