that morning, had not come yet.
"Lycurgus," said Mrs. Fergusou. "you
will have to go to the grocery and get It.
We can't wait any longer."
Mr. Ferguson went tntbe grocer's, whose
placo of business was seven blocks nway.
"How does It happen," lie demanded
fiercely, "that the soap my wife ordered
three hours ago hasn't comu yet r"
"She ordered a lot of atuff at thu same

Mr. Ferguson, boiling over with wrath,,
was about to start on another trip for that
soap, when the laundry lady tmulu her ajn

"There's a man at the back door," she
said, "with an order book In his hand. I
think it's the grocer himself."
Then Mr. Ferguson went to the back

"And a whole washing is going to ruin
for want of It! I won't stand It! You
can't play a trick like that on niu a second

every time the boy has comu around. We

"I am very sorry," remarked tho wife,
when the waitress brought In n huge cube
of corned beef and placed it on the table,

"It Is really terrible," replied tho hus

"No," said the wife.

"Not a cent."
"Nor a bond nor a share of stock upon

"I think wu ought," said thu wifu cheer
fully. "Then let's try to. I could go all my
