' High Cost of Living, Writing about the high cost of living, Walt Mason lately turned out the following bit of jingle: "A stately squash grew on a vine that hung upon a fence, and it was large and smooth and fine, and sold for 7 cents. The buyer put it in a crate and shipped it off to town; the railway company charged 10 cents freight and got the money down. Then diverse kinds of middlemen passed that squash along, and each one got a rake off then, in which they saw no wrong. The jobber to the grocer sold that squash one autumn day, and it was scarred and bruised and old, and tending to decay. The farmer who raised that squash to town came on his wheel; at dinner time he said: 'B'gosh, I'll have a good square meal!' And to a restaurant he sped and ate some squash on ice and then he stood up on his head when he was told the price. 'Your prices on sauashes makes me hot!' he cried; 'your game is bunk! I'll sell a wagon load for what you charged me for that chunk!' Our eyes with teardroDs are awash. We're viewing with alarm; for when we go to buy a squash we have to buy a farm. Proving His Love A dentist received a call the other morning from a couple whom he soon had a reason to believe were lovers. The girl had an ach ing tooth, and as they entered the operating room the young man said: "Now, dear, the worst is over; just take a seat and it will be out in a minute." "Oh, I can't." she gasped. "But it really won't hurt you, you know." "But I'm afraid it will." "It can't; I'd have one pulled out in a minute if it ached." "I don't .believe it" "Oh, yes, I would." "Has she got a bad tooth?" asked the dentist. "Yes," answered the young man; "It has ached a week and I've just succeeded in getting her down here. Come, dear, have it out." "Oh. I can't." "But -you must." "I can't stand the pain." "Pain! Now, then I'll have one pulled out to show you that it J doesn't hurt." He took a seat, leaned back, opened his mouth and the dentist seemed to be selecting a tooth to correspond with his forceps, when the girl protested. "Hold on; the test is sufficient; he has proved his devotion. Get up. Harry and I'll have it pulled out." She took the chair and had the tooth drawn without a groan, and as she went out she was saying to the young man: "Now I can believe you when you declare that you would die for me." And every tooth in his head was false. New York Sun. Don't Kill the Toads. Toads are the friends of the farm er. They feed entirely upon an incredible number of insects, eating ants, cutworms, thousandlegged worms, caterpillars, ground beetles, destructive weevils, grasshoppers. crickets, spiders, sow-bugs, potato bugs and a miscellaneous lot of : other insects that are destructive to crops. Therefore protect the toad. Teach the thoughtless boy to be friendly to this helpless, harmless. useful little creature ahd he will well repay your kindness to him. -Ex.
