An old-fashioned way is to water it. Nobody waters it now. A better way is to take out the cream rich milk with the cream taken out is as good as poor milk with its cream all in. But we needn't go into the particu lars. You don't rob your milk and your customers. Paint is as easy as milk to cheat with. Good paint ia as rare as good milk ; for human nature is much the same in milk men and paint men. You are just and true with your milk; so are we with our paint. De voe lead and zinc is twice as good as good as pure white lead; lasts twice as long. There's twice as much but ter in it. Yours truly, 5 F..W. Deove & Co. Flint Plumley.

(Chicago News ) Once upon a time t here wan a Lone ly and Deserving Girl named Clara, who was gettiDg so near thirty that she didn't want to talk about it. She traveled with the thoroughbreds and was always among those present ; so it was hard to understand why she hadn't married. Ocher gills notes good looking or accomplished bad been grabbed off when ttuy were buds. Already some ot them were beginning to act as chaperons for Clara. They were keeping tab on Clara's age, too, and begun to think that she would land on the bargain counter and have to be satisfied with a widower who wore a toupee and dved his eye brows. Clara was something of a mind reader. She knew that the friends of her youth were predicting a hard fin ish for her, so she decided to fool them. And she knpw that it behoov ed her to catch on belore the children started in to call her auntie. Now it is not to be inferred that Clara was what the underwriters call a bad risk. She never had been a drug on the market. When she went to a hop she didn't have to wait for ladies' choice in order to swing into the mezy. In fact, she had been en gaged now and thenftafst for prac tice, and she had received offers from Eome of the hold-over bachelors who went around proposing from force of habit. But Clara was not out for any man who had been turned down elsewhere. She wanted the right kind and slie was going to do the picking herself. Having made an inventory of the possibilities, she selected the treasur er of the shoe factory and decided that she could love him without straining herself. He was about her own age and was almost as good looking as a Gibson man, and had Al prospects. It would be no easy job to land him, however, because the competition was very keen and he was wary, trying to be a kind friend to every girl he knew, but playing no favorites. He kept the parents guess ing. The treasurer of the shoe facto ry was what any society paper would can a great eaten. Clara got busy with herself and hatched a scheme. When all the smart set got ready to pike away for the heated term, Clara surprised her friend by guessing she would remain nt'home. It was the very thing to do, because all the social head-liners who could command the price were supposed to flirt off to a summer ho tel and loiter on the pine veranda and try to think they were recuperating. Clara told her mother to go, as us ual, but she would stay at home and be a companion to poor, lonesome papa. So all the women went iff to the resorts with their cameras and talcum powder and witch hazel and Clara was left in town with the men. It is a traditional fact that there is no social lifrf in town during the dog days. But there is nothing to pre vent a bright girl from starting some thing. That is what Clara did. She stocked up the refrigerator and bung a hammock on thelawn with a few easy chairs around it, The young men marooned In town heard of the good thing and no one had to tear tLeir garments to induce them to come. They arrived at the rate of from seven to twelve anight and dip ped into papa s cigars and the liquid nourishment, regardless. Although Clara had remained in town to act as companion to papa, it was noticed that when she had all the company in the evening papa either had been chloroformed and put to bed or else he had his orders to stay under cover. Clara did not send for the treasurer of the shoe factory. She knew better than to go out alter her prey. She allowed him to find his way to the house with the others. When became she did not chide him for failing to make bis party call: neither did she rush toward him with a low cry of iov. thereby tipping her hand. She knew that the treasurer of the shoe factory was next to all those board ing school tactics and could not be handled by the methods that go with the college students. Clara had en joyed about ten yeurs' experience in handling the creatures and she had learned to labor and to wait. She simply led him into the circle and took his order nnd allowed him to sit there in the gloaming and observe how popular she was. All the men were scrapping to see which would be next tasit in the hammock with her. 44 It. looked for awhile as though Clara would have to give o it checks the 6ime as in a barbershop. Late that night when the men walked home ward together they remarked thut Clara was a warm hostess. Nxt evening the treasurer of the shoe factory was back on the lawn. So were all tLe others. They said there was no beating a place where yen could play shirt waist man un der the trees and have a fairy queen in white come and push cold drinks at you and not have to sign any tick et. Thpy com postd flattering songs about Clara and every time she mov ed there was a man right there with a sofa cushion to help her to be com fortable. In the meantime the othergirls out the summer resorts were doing the best they could with these high school cadets, wearing tidies around their hats, who would rather go out in a ca t boat and get their arms tanned than to remain on shore and win the hontt love of an American girl, with a string to it. Clara's work about this time was ever so glossy. She rjegan by asking the treasurer of the shoe factory to come with her to the refrigerator to get out some more imported ginser ale. All the men volunteered to help and two or three wanted to tag along, but Clara drove them back. They were gone a long time because the treasurer had to draw all the corks, and they fussed around to gether in the pantry fixing upalunch for the boys. Clara told him how strong and handy he was, until he felt an increase in chest measurement. On successiye evenings she had the treasurer supervise all the ariange ments. The hired girl had every eve ening out, because it was so much more jolly to go out and run the place yourself. In less than a week the treasurer was giving orders round the house. Every evening she would get him back to the kitchen and tie an apron around him and ask what she should do nexT. She madbim out to be the only one who could be trusted. The others were company but he was one of the family. And although he was being worked like creamery butter he never suspected it. He" game was to domesticate him in advance and let him have a fore taste ot wnat it is to be boss of your own house except as to the billsr The pantry was full of home delicacies euch as he couldn't get at the hotel, and the service is the best ever. Clara was right at his elbow with a willing smile. It didn't take him long to realize that he was missing a lot by remain ing single. He wondered why he had been so slow in getting onto Clara's good point. Also he wondered if it was any open and shut certainty when a dcz-n other men, some of them younger and more gallus, were at her in full cry. - Clara bad pulled him in,strunga hung over the side of the boat. Of course, if all tha other girls had bten in town, they would have turn bled long before it ran into a certain ty and probably they would have formed a V and rushed in to break up the play. But the other girls were far away with the old men and the seminary striplings. Clara had an open field with no need of any inter fering or blocking, and if she fell down it was her own fault. Besides she had all these other admirers set out as decoys to prove that if he did n't, somebody else might. The treasurer of the shoe factory got a large rally on himself and she had to give in and make a promise. He loves to tell callers how he pro posed to his wife in the kitchen and he doesn't know to this day that she was expecting it. Moral : As soon as he begins to frequent the back rooms of the house measure him lor the harness. Record Breaking Tall Men.
