Many a man is going thru life pushing a wheelbarrow loaded with imaginary troubl es and wondering why lie can't get ahead of the others.

The old-fashioned man who believed there was no such an animal aa a horse wortli $500 now has a son' who lias a $5,000 poodle. Mother gets highly indig nant because eggs jump from 18 cents to 21 cents a dozen, but as long as beer and onion perfectors are only five cents a copy father can't see any thing to worry about.

Sic Transit Gloria Tango Last winter, in a peroid of rash ness and inconceivable folly we took a few dancing lessons. We learned the tango, the one step and the hesitation, with all the dips, drags, grape vines and lame ducks, there unto appertaining and in such case made and provided We thot we had Terpsichore lashed in to the rudder of Zeppebin. As we glided alongthehall or riccoche ten from divan to davenport, just missing the piano lamp in our mad flighis to some friendly parlor, we used to feel sorry for poor Mr. and Mrs. Castle. We were the dancing demon of the day. We were. But last night we happened to drop in DON'T MISS THIS GREAT SALE some friends, whose victrola, as we entered, was tearing off, "Bv the Sea, By the Beautifu Sea." We shall forever hate that tune, tor it is inextricably inter mingled with the wreck of our con ceit. We learned last night that we can't dance. No more than a rabbit, we can't dance. There wsa a young fellow in that parlor who had brought with him, from the city, a slew of new steps and motions, and gestures, and poses, and by the time we got there he had taught the young ladies such delecatesseu as the "half and half" "the fox trot "the silo slip and "the Ford Plop" or something like that. Why, we didnt even know the holds any more. Every thing we did was passe or Aisne or przemysl. We were Major—gen eral Dub. Last year if you didn't hesitate, well, you neednt come around. This year if year if you hesitate you are lost and no re ward offered. LUKE McLUKE SAYS. A man can lie out of a lot of tilings. But ho can't deny it when lie eats onions. A man will pay a dollar for a do cent article that lie wants. A woman will pay 49 cents for a :J9-cent article that she doesn't want. A girl is real proud when she graduates from college with a B. A. Butslie is even prouder when she enters the matrimony school and adds B. Y. to her degree. A girl can wear a long skirt and make it display more hosiery than if she wore a short skirt. It is all in the management. A mother never changes. When her son is 40 years old and wears long whiskers, she wont call him an thing else but "Willie" The scientists ust be los ing their grip 011 the peo ple. In Decern bei- of last year, the Harvard servants announced the Great Discovery that nearly all women are knock kneed. But you may have noticed that the fool men keep right on get ting married and taking a chance. A Massachusetts girl cut off her hair in her sleep. Most girl yank it off before they go to sleep. The Highbrows claim that the use of a medicated tis sue screen will make kissing "safe and sanitaryIt may make it sanitary but there isn't any way to make kissing safe. It must be a terrible jar to the reformers to realize that the fellows who smokes cigarettes manage to cop out so many good jobs.
