A ,young womn went to-the sta
tionAte meet her fathet. As tjo
train cam in she saw a middle
aged mhan lio resnibIld -hir
relative, and sh1e rushed into his
arms, huddled down on his bosom,
kissed him on the mouth, the ear,
the chin, and all over his patent
celluloid. It was not her father,
but a middle-aged traveler for a
tobacco house. le took a long
breath, and looked around at some
other travelers and winked, as
much as to say ''0, I'm such a
masher !" Of course the scene
could not last forever, though he

are iot my pa !"
le said she was right.
She asked his pardon, all ie

hold ourselves iii readiness to sup
port those who need it."
She suiled a sweet, S1(1, blush

look queer, bit those things oc
curred very often wiih him, as
they would occur with a fine-look
ing mnan. Besides, the girl prob

Theni they asked him why he( (lid

such trying occasions, ie looked
at his shirt front andl it was gone.
