' Accordingly, armed with righteous ' wrath, and with a determination to do or die. Mrs. Martinez tripped her dainty way to the thirst parlors in search of the erring one, and found him already pifflicated to the nose, and engaged in a heated altercation with a fellow tipster, on the much mooted question of "Which would . you rather do or go fishing?" Draw ing herself up to her full height, Mrs. Martinez glided through the door and seized upon the truant master, and proceeded to give him what was good for him. Awed by a senie of superiority in noble woman, F.
