Social Obligations "Dear," Bald Mrs. Westcott dramat ically to her husband as she took the newspaper out of bis hands to compel him to give his undivided attention to her, "we've got to entertain! That's 11 there Is to it!" "Well, why have we?" demanded Westcott. "Why, I'm simply ashamed to look our friends In the face, and actually the Ruggleses and the Squires will think we are stingy! They've lived here nearly a year and I've never even had a luncheon in all that time! Think of it! And I receive invita tions almost every day! Hut there's one comfort I don't go any more! So I really don't owe a lot of people more than the Invitation .myself." Westcott listened helplessly, trying In vain to catch a glimpse of the headlines In the newspaper that his wife held. "Yes," he said, In a most desultory manner, feeling In duty bound to make some remark in the pause. "Yes. that's it!" went on Mrs. West cott. "Well entertain! We'll do some thing liig, too! Come, help me plan!" t-'he Ih'iimed on him as she threw the newspaper behind her, regardless of i's landing on the floor. "Rut," remonstrated her husband, ikly, "these big affairs are are rather an expense, aren't they?" "Oh, why didn't I think of it be fOPit" Mrs. Westcott asked, ignor ing his remark. "There, they've been jrone only two months and I've owed them something so long! I could tiave had It a week, say after they nailed and " She paused in rapt contemplation. "Why, my dear," interposed West cott, surprised by the peculiar trend of his wife's remarks. "You say you wish you could have given it a week after they sailed! I assume that you mean the Uankins. But why a week after they sailed? Why was that time any better than the present?" "Why, you see," Mrs. Westcott gazed on him In pity for his lack of comi'i lienslon, "you see, I could have Invited them!" Westcott took a deep breath. He looked at his wife earnestly while his brain tried to fathom the mystery. "You wanted to give It early so you could Invite the Ranklns to come to it a week after they sailed! Ah, yes! Ho clear so so shall we call It lucid?" Oh, bother!" Mrs. Westcott impa tiently exclaimed. "Why can't you understand things? I always have to explain everything to you! If I In vited them men tney a owe me an m on. I'd have paid what I owe i m, imt they couldn't come because they'd be sailing for Europe at the time." Westcott eyed his wife in admira tion. "Are you going to to run the whole party on the same principle?" he queried, respectfully. "Well, we'll issue about twice as many invitations as the house can hold," she explained, the fire of vic tory in her eyes. "There are the Browns. They're going to Florida this winter. I heard that they leave !n about a week. That's five, for I'd have to have the girls, too," She looked at her husband exultantly. "Oh, and there are the Warrens and the Smiths. They're going hunting to gether this fall somewhere up north and they'll be gone a month, I know!

Westcott pulled out an u velope and put down the figures." 'Then there are the doctor and his mother. He told me the other day that she wasn't at all well and he thought he'd take a run out west to go with her to his sisters in Cali fornia. I could invite them!" "And there are the minister and his wife and his son and daughter," put In Westcott, with proper pride In his offering. "He's going to accept that church in Rochester. So we can in vite them!" Mrs Westcott glanced at her hus band to detect any fraud in his air of frankness, but he was adding the names to his list enthusiastically. "There are twenty that can't come," he counted, finally. Mrs. Westcott sighed a deep sigh of thanksgiving. "That's all right, then." she said. "Now, we'll just ask I our own immediate friends In to tel I that night and have a good time. That'll be eight or ten altogether ! and, thank goodness, most of my obll i gatlons will be paid!" Then she handed his newspaper to him smilingly. Char.ssd Her Mind. A young couple had been courting j for several years and the young man ' seemed to be in no hurry to marry, j Finally, one day, he said: ; "Sa!, I canna marry thee." "How's that?" asked she. "I've changed my mind, " said he. "Well, I'll tell thee what we'll do," ! said she. "If folks know that it's thee as has given me up I shanna be able to get another chap; but If they thing I've given thee up 1 can get all I want. So we'll have banns pub lished and when the wedding day comes the parson will say to thee, 'Wilt thou have this woman for th-r wedded wife?' and thou must say, 1 i will.' And when he says to me, 'Wilt ! thou hi.ve this man to be thy wedded j husband?' I shall say, 'I wlnna.'" The day came, and when the minis ter asked the Important question the 1 man answered, "I will." Then the parsoa said to the woman: Wilt thou have this man to be thy wedded husband?" and she said: "I will." "Why," said the young man furious ly, "you said you would say 'I winna.' " "I know that," said the young woman, "but I've changed my mind since "-National Monthly. POSSIBLE EXPLANATION Miss Screecher He must be very tender-hearted. Why, every time I sing he cries.
