necessary that all bills due me be

unpaid when my business has been
cloesd out will be placed in the hands
of a collection agency. That means

One day tho manager was called
at noon to inspect a certain gradi
of paper in tho storeroom on tho

wended their way through tho iiuga

of low sobs. Silently they peered

Death For Kissing.
In ancient Egypt it was consid
ered ft high degree of politeness to
kiss one's hand and then place it on
the ton of th head.
Men of rank occasionally kissed
each other, but in the land of the
tiliaruohs no man ever dreamed o:
kiting a woman.
In Homo kissing was at one time
n Fcriou matter. If a slavo kissed
a free woman ho was liable to be
torn to pieces by wild horsea.
