' "When the tall' girl found the xnis-j tress of the six-room flat washing' dishes ahe asked what bad happened to Mary. "Mary haa left," aald the bousekeep er. "I insulted her yesterday morn. Ins at 10 o'clock, and at 11 ahe packed) her trunk and skipped. v ' "We had a row over toothbrushes. i Mary exhibited an unparalleled Inter; est In toothbrushes. Every brush she j came to was taken up and turned orer and orer and commented on admlr Ingly or the reverse. "Finally ahe came to mine. I could sense at once that she liked it "'Whose Is thisT she asked. t " 'Mine,' 1 said. "She poured out a glass of water and dipped the brush in. "'Oh. well.' she said, 1 wont be afraid to use it, then.' "For a moment I stood there liter ally stupefied, but soon I saw that prompt action was necessary, and I caught Mary's arm In a painful grasp. "'Put It down this Instant,' I com manded. 'Put it down.' "Mary drew back and withered me out of the corner of her eye. " 'Dear me,' she said. how touchy some folks are. I never work for touchy folks.' "And so we parted. She seemed salable to get my point of view on toothbrush etiquette, and I seemed un able to get hers, so we thought It best to sever our relations." FREQUENTLY FORGOT RING Nervous Bridegrooms Overlook Impor tant Feature of Marriage Ceremony Substitute Sometimes Used. This warning has been given many times to the nervous bridegroom on the morning of the great event of his life. One would hardly think it nec essary to remind a man of so impor tant a feature of the ceremony. Yet. again and again has the agitated bride groom found himself in the awful pre dicament of being minus the hoop ot gold. And distressing are the scenes which sometimes ensue. In some in stances, the clergyman has come to the rescue. At one wedding, when the bridegroom confessed that be had for gotten the ring, the minister prompt ly drew a bunch of keys from his pocket, handed the largest of the bunch to the embarrassed young man. who looked stupidly at the large loop at its end. The bride, howerer, had the presence of mind to thrsst the proper finger through the loop, m here upon the bridegroom, prompted by th . ' clergyman, said in a dazed fashion: "With this ring I. thee wed" An other clergyman, at .a suburban wed ding, supplied the suddenly discovered deficiency by removing his eyeglasses, slipping out one of the lenses, and offering the gold rim to the bride. She had tact enough to accept the strange substitute without question. Joy of Living. The legitimate Joy of living la the prize of sanity, courage and sympathy. The sight of all the preventable dis eases and the moral disasters that are avoidable may, and often must, draw a cloud over the day. The still, sad music of humanity is not always sooth ing to those who hear It, and some times makes cheerfulness seem crim inal. Yet the cheerful, happy souls are the bringers of blessing to the disconsolate and the victims of sin and sorrow. Every haman being has a right to be happy if he can, and in deed he is under obligation to set the example to others who live nnder darkened skies. It is a help aad com fort to the down-trodden and the op pressed to know that there is such a thing as. liberty, and that it la obtaln- EVERYTHING IN BUILDING MATERIAL From heavy timbers to finest factory work.

We recognize a certain size as that which is characteristic off man and of various species cf vUfl animals, and we are accustomed to a certain small variatloa in that size, so that individuals are somewhat "short er" or "taller."

First Civilization. It was Egypt, in all probability, that the condition e call civilization had its rise at a time when the very idea of writing was unknown to other na tion. An attempt is now being made to show that the idea of the settled and more or less orderly and peace ful social state to which we give the name of civilization came from Chal dea. or Babylonia, where that sort of thing existed long before it was brought to Egypt. Bat sot as yet is the "theory clearly proves, though its advocates are ' rr.aktng some pretty strong points Ln its favor. So far. however, the "Land of Egypt" holds the title. j How Rome Was Saved.

People who had been his customers for a generation had,-, many of them, never beard a word from him exoept Good morning. Five dollars. Thank yoa. Good day. Old John, in fact, cultivated silence as a genius cultivates his art. "A patron one day said to John: " "What's the beat kind of mattress r " Hair," was the reply. .
