lVuDOK.3 GIFTS Th Happy Cride Takes an Inventory Th bride had returned from her trip and wan about to spend a long, happy morning looking ovor her wed ding presents and finding out what he bad really received. Defore the " great day she had been so excited and rushed that she had no time to exam ine her treasures closely, although she remembered, as In a dream, writing a large number of notes of acknowledg ment Then, too, 70 gifts had come after she had gone away. The brido went Into the room where the : presents were arranged on all the tables the house afforded and two borrowed from neighbors, and sepa rated the sheep from the lambs. The first thing which caught her eye I were a number of punch glasses. She counted them and found there were 440 In all. "They will be awfully nice when you give a ball," said her sister, who was . accompanying her on this voyage of The bride admitted that they would. "But you see, dear," she said thoughtfully, "our apartment has only five rooms and a bath, and the little library table is but 16 by CO feet, so that H will probably be some years before I can invite 440 people to take dinner with me, or even give a .'small and early' dance to that humbcr." - The sister giggled, and they Inspect ed the coffee spoons, which came next on the table. There were 48 coffee Gpoons, and the bride sorted them into little groups and looked them over admiringly, i "I will use them by turns," she said. "This set first, then that, and so on." "Why not have them exchanged for something else?" asked the sister.: "I don't think that would be nice, replied the bride, primly. There were 17 cut-glass bwihon dl.fhpg and 20 bonbon spoons. Thore were 38 silver knives which the bride said were pie knives and her sister declared should be used either for Ice cream or fish, or both, as occasion demanded. r, :i There were 11 clocks. "We can put two In, each room," Bald the bride, "and I mustn't forget to go dowutown this very af;ernc;n and bny a dollar alarm clock to waken George in the morning.". "These are the puzzles," explained the sister, as the twain approached a table laden with silver Implements. "Each member of the family has been given three guesses as to the identity of each but we haven't succeeded In making them all out yet." The bride took up .the implements one by one, knitted her brows and puziled over them. ' "This looks to me like something to cat asparagus with," she said, refer ring to a gnarled specimen. "Oh! we've guessed that," replied the sister; "that Is a combination cork-screw and bottle-opener and ice pick, and it is solid silver. It was easy, but just .try your brains on this." "This" resembled nothing so much as a dynamite bomb with a fussy top. It was evidently intended as a recepta cle for some special thing, but what the bride could not make out in the least There were all sorts and con ditions of focka and pronged things which were not particularly ornamen tal and would only be useful if the owner knew to what to apply them. . "I should take them to a Jeweler and have him explain their uses," Bafd the sister. "I wIH," acquiesced the bride. "Per haps he will know, though I doubt It Did I get any doylies or embroidered things for the table?" "No, but you are the happy owner of 11 lamps." "And there Is both electric light and gas la the apartment Still, when we build a summer home they will come In nicely. I hope we received some pictures." "No, no pictures, bat 14 trays of various sorts and conditions." "Any furniture?" "Certainly not; people don't give such things, but yon received 11 pep per pots." "We will certainly have a spicy life," sighed the bride. "I had hoped some one would send me a tf table." "It seems to me you are awfully un grateful," said the sister. "I am not," contradicted the bride. "1 love everything I have. They are J all perfectly lovely, and I wouldn't part with one of them for the world. ' I am merely taking an Inventory, j Tell you what ! will do. I will go right Z down town and find out what these ' things are Intended for and and er if you AVt think It would be dread- j fut, I will take a basketful of dupll-' I cat along and exchange there for -article I did not get Yoa are sure 1 J J yon don't think It will be dreadful? But what will the givers say when they come to call and don't And their gifts? Ton honestly drmt think It will matter? Well, then., come with me exd we will exchange the lamps for tablwloths and some of thoe silver spoons for a bread tray, and seven pie knives for a carving set I don't expert to have a rreat amount cf pie George doesn't like It" ' av'-e ' . t (v ( .' . ew v ' a . m India's Crsst tutimer Resort The season for butlnms sod pleas nre In Simla and the other summer reports la the Himalayas Is fmra the middle of April to the end of Septem ber.
