A Man Can't Pick His Mother,
but He Can Pick His
From "Letten From a Self Made Mtr
chant to Iii? Son," by George Horace
iArrimtr. liy permtefcm of SmaU, Mav

0 '? ?s
Of course you're In no position yet to
think of being engaged oven, And that's
why I'm a little afraid that you may
bo plunnlug to got married. But a
twelve dollar clerk who owes $62 for
roses needs a keepor more than a wife.
1 want to say right hero that there al
ways comes a time to the fellow who
blows $52 at a lick on roses when ho
thinks how many staple groceries ho
could hnve bought with the money.
After all, there's no fool like a young
fool, becnuso in the nature of things
bo's got a long time to Hvo.
I suppose I'm fannlug the air when I
ask you to be guided by my judgment
In this matter, because while a young
fellow will consult his father nbout
buying a horse ho's cocksure of him
self when It comes to picking a wife.
Marriages may be made in heaven, but
most engagements aro made in the
back pnrlor, with the gas so low that a
fellow doesn't really get a square look
at what he's talking. Wbllo a man
doesn't seo much of a girl's family
Whon he's courting he's npt to seo a
good deal of It when he's housekeep
ing, and while ho doesn't mnrry his
wife's father there's nothing In the
marriage vow to prevent the old man
from borrowing money from b?n, and
you can bet If he's old Job Dashkam
he'll do It. A man can't pick his own
mother, but he can pick his son's moth
er, and when ho chooses a father-ln
Inw who plays the bucketshops bo
needn't bo surprised if his own son
ploys the races.
Never marry a poor girl who's boon ,
raised like a rich one. She's simply
traded the virtues of the poor for the
vices of the rich without going long
on their good points. To mnrry for
money or to marry without money Is a
crime. There's no real objection to
marrying a woman with a fortune, but
there is to marrying a fortune with a
While you are at It, there's nothing
like picking out n good looking wife,
because even tho handsomest woman
looks homely sometimes, and so you
got a llttlo variety. But a homely one
can only look worse than usual. Beau
ty Is only skin deep, but that's deep
enough to satisfy any reasonable man.
(I wnnt to say right here thnt to get
any sense out of a provorb I usually
find that I have to turn it wrong side
out.) Then, too, if a fellow's bound
to marry a fool, and a lot of men havo
to If they're going to hitch np into a
well matched team, there's nothing
llko picking n good looking one.
I believe in short engagements and
long marrlngea. I don't see any souse
In a fellow's sitting aronnd on the
mourner's bench with the winners
after he's renlly got religion. Tho
time to size up tho other side's
strength Is beforo the engagement.
Some fellows propose to a girl be
fore they know whether her front and
her back hnlr match and then holler
thnt they're stuck when they find that
she's got a cork leg and a glass eyo
They start out on tho principle that
married people havo only one meal a
day and that of fried oysters and tuttl
frutti Ice crenin after tho theater. Nat
urally a girl's got her better nature
and her best comploxlon along under
those circumstances. But the really
valuable thing to know Is how she ap
proaches ham and eggs at 7 o'clock
n. m. and whether she brings her com
plexion with her to the breakfast ta
ble. And these fellows make a girl be
lieve that they're going to spend all
the time between 8 and 11 o'clock
p. m. for the rest of their lives holding
HO pounds, live weight, in their lap
and saying that It feels llko a feather.
The thing to find out is whether, when
one of them gets up to holding a ten
pound baby in bis arms for five min
utes, he's going to carry on as if it
weighed o ton.

IT'S GOING UP!
tWhen the mercury goes up it means lots of things; It means
a busy round of new work for most of us, and it usually means some
new clothes to meet the weather conditions; New shoes generally
are wanted because the old shoes are giving out and anyway, a
new pair feels better for the warmer weather. We can supply every
body with shoes. Men, Women and Children alike will find suitable
footwear, and footwear of good quality selling at proper prices.

Men We Want to Talk To:
We believe that if every man in Lanrens was a

the positive facts in the case?that every man in
Laurena would come straight to us for all his

gument on this subject. This week's argument is
To the Man who wants to Dress Well.
Perfect lit is the llrst element of perfect dross. To dross
well a man's clothing must?above till things?lit well; Tho COAT
must shape smoothly over tho shoulders aud gracefully throughout;
The VEST must lie
snug; The TROUSERS
must carry just the right
amount of loosonoss, yet
Tho Clothing that
does all these things
must, first of all, be
mado right?and tho
