I If there's anything in your system that sounds even a little bit like I told you so, forget it. I live on a laugh. Folks are spend ing millions per annum for the gad screech at night; they'll have to pay just the same of mornings, if you give them a chance. Seeing a fe'low on the street look ing like he'd never smile again, makes other folks remember their woes and pretty soon everybody gets sorry for themselves. S'pose you do own a grouch, what's the use displaying it in the show win dows? Those things are dangerous. They are ketchen Ain't it funny how many nice folks there are in this world?

If she doesn't get married before she's thirty, the ehanrrs are that the aitilkial ood time becomes hecti rou.- ha.s to take the place ot natural eolor. belladonna' in the eyes is made the substitute for a good i-.ighfs sh and the nerves are apt to get out of tune. The biggest majority of city women, however, business girls espe ialiy, are ot quite a different type. They are not as rosy-cheeked as their country sis ters, not as vivacious as their ,ayer city cousins. But they axe a lot keener, and in a quiet way suggest eJticiency. There's something very satisfactory in the friendship and the love of a busi ness woman, who is a customed to meeting and to judging men and knows their worth. It's good, after some time spent in the country, to come back to city life and see the types of its women. They all show an alert understanding of life. For these there is :u age limit; they remain attractive until well on in life. When you come to think of it,, the difference between the words "business woman" and "old woman" tells a big story. The first is proba.bly a woman who hasn't felt that mar riage was her only outlook. The "old maid" is a case. of failure; marriage was her only end, and she didn't land anything. There's no getting away from il except for the few years of youth the city business woman is vastly more attractive than her country co-asm, or than an" othrr tv' o of city woman. r mi P k ! t.( in i I .N I" ro JH tbt liefu-e Crowded Klert, .t. i-in iwot..j i.,i t. . ,:! . merchant,-' c h., -, -t , , i ....

Minneapolis. When Elmer Norton, who had been on the road about two months, saw the great white lights of Minneapolis a systematized business as a hobo that was paying him $1,200 a year above traveling and living ex penses came to an end. On the per son of Norton, who is now in the workhouse, was found a notebook containing in ledger form the expense account and profit and loss account of the "hobo" business. In twenty-nine days of travel, in which a bookkeeping process that a professional expert accountant scarce ly could criticise was followed, all that cAme in and all that went out of the pocket of Norton was set down. The figures afford the first evidence the Minneapolis police department ever has seen of the cost of conducting a personal tour, in boxcars, on fiatcars, on trucks or blind baggage, and oc casionally paying fare. It shows that If carefully conducted such a business pays good dividends. Elmer Norton, 35, with only one leg, a winning way, an aptitude for figures and a written card of appeals for help, left Parker. S. D. In twenty-nine days until he came into Min neapolis, he had been in sixty towns oroA oIHps Faithfullv he put down income and expense as he went along. Norton carried a small pocket led ger ruled off into columns for towns reached, distance travel-ed. fare paid, when he paid any. total amount re ceived in each town and balance on hand when leaving the town. When Norton struck Minneapolis he must have had nearly $100. Business was best r-t Windom, where he took in . He averaged not less than $3 in every town visited, expenses were i.gnt.

None have had enough to keep them above the point of constant suf fering. Most literally they are starv ing. Fortunately the representatives of a British relief organization who are in .Kieit are on tne spot ana tne situation is taken in hand. Three hun dred pounds of bread are " procured, tea and as much milk as the neighbor hood can provide, a sausage maker's shop is bought out, a big boiler found and set going, meal tickets written and distributed and before long the refugees are having their first real dinner since who knows how long. It was late before the workers got to bed that night. The next day showed how valuable one simple meal may be. Already the look of sharp misery on their faces was less, their eyes lesw tormented. The bread of yesterday had don more than give them freh blood. It gave them hope; they have beKun again to believe in life.

Bomb Supposed To Rave Been Fired By Slierman's Army. Chattanooga, Tenn. A big bomb shell, probably fired into Chattanooga by Gen.
