CAN'T ALWAYS SIZE TiiEWl UP
Former Acquaintance One Moots In
New York Must Not De Judgfcd
by Their Appearance.
You never can tell who Is who when
you meet them in theVhlte Light sec
tion. Tlio other night n Pittsburgher
ran Into n former Steel Cltylte who
was wandering nlong tho big lone. Ho
wnsn't so glad to see him, as he feared
n "touch," because bnck home the man
never seemed prosperous, neither was
ho down and out. Ills appearance
hadn't changed since his residence
"How long have you been living In
New York?" asked the visitor.
"Oh, about three years," replied the,
"Then you know tho town pretty
well?" was tho next query.
The former Pittsburgher admitted,
that he did, nnd gave the visitor some
advice and wnrnlng about tho big city.
He listened. Then ho asked:. "What
ure you doing here, Bill?'"
"Working for n bank down town,"
j replied tho other mun.
I Tho Pittsburgher didn't press his
i chnnco friend for detnlls. Ho thought
I that Bill had one of those jobs down
' town where one starves to death
i amidst the wealth of the nation die of
thirst upon the fountain's brink.
"W.on't you tnke lunch with me?" ho
nsked, and Bill said ho would bo de
lighted some time.
I The next day the Pittsburgher went
to a bank down town to see about a
check of n frbuul of Ills which had
gone nstrny. "Yoii will have to see
! tho cashier," he was told, and- there
i was the former Steel City mnn. He
was In nn office market "private" on
the door nnd his nnmo in gold on the
I side of the desk. He wns cashier of
! ono of the biggest banks in the world,

Housewlfe Finds Joy In Thoughf That
She la Helping to Defeat the
- Hated Boche. ' '
"It's a funny thing,"" said the Man to
his Wife the other night. "You used
to like cooklug, as I remember it.
Breaking a new maid In was always a
time of great trial and tribulation. But
every night I come home to dinner you
emerge from the kitchen almost as
though you hated to leave the master
pieces you have evolved long enough
to greet your lmrd-workiug husband
properly. What's tho reaspn?" N
"Well," said the Wife of her Hus
band; "it's like this. It's n sort of
game. I may not ever see any fighting,
but I feel that out there In tho kitchen
am helping France, England and, lust
but not least, our own blessed boys;
Every time I make a loaf of rye bread
I feel like waving a ling. Every tlmo
make my allowance stretch a little
bit I feel ns though I had won a battle.
And so I have. I've beaten old General
Hlghcostallvlng. Every time I squeeze
a War Savings stnmp out of theifood
allowance I feel that I personally have
ilrcd n shot at the Bodies."
"Good girl," mid the Man patted his
Wife gently. "Since I can't go and wo
have no one to give, the best we can
do Is to play the game over here as
though we loved it." -
Dog's Death Led to Suicide.
Mrs. Margaret Dugdale, wife of
Norman Dugdale, J. P., of Dutton
Manor, near Blackburn, was. found
dead with a bullet wound in her fore
head In a field near tfie gruvo of her
favorite dog, which had been de
stroyed on uccount of old age. De
pression caused by Its loss was sug
gested at tho Inquest as tho cause ot
her suicide, says Lloyd's News, Lon
don. When found she was grasping a
humane cnttle killer, At her feet wna
a mallet with which sho had dis
charged the weapon, and a loaded re
volver wns In a basket near her. She
hod fixed, a mirror to the fence, and
u note pinned to her dress gave direc
tions for tho disposal of her body.
Mr, Dugdule snld he thought the dog's
death, which his wife had taken great
ly to heart, was tM cause of tho
tragedy, nnd tho Jury's verdict -was
that Mrs. Dugdale shot herself while
of unsound mind.
