Physician Finds the Bird Is Subject
to Disease Human Beings
Better not keep a parrot. A physi
cian has discovered that birds of this
species are subject to a disease called
pstttacose, which Is peculiarly con
tagious, and may easily be contracted
by human beings. As a germ carrier.
In fact, the parrot Is unrivaled.
Now the OQce Window Is not par
ticularly afraid of germs. They may
te quite as bad. quite as dangerous,
as they are represented. But what Is
the use of trying to get away from
them? We cannot eat. drink or
breathe without taking In germs. We
associate with them from morning till
night. They are bound to work their
will with us anyway so we may as
well ignore them and hare as good a
Uce as we can. before they get us.
But the Office Window Is perfectly
willing to laki advantage of the
germs as an ally against the parrot.
This preposterous bird has nothing
to recommend him except his unlike
ces to the bird species. He does not
slrg. but squawks. He Is regarded
as worthless unless he can "talk. In
a kind of harsb resemblance to hu-ir-rn
speech. He is neither bird nor
hemaa; he Is a disorderly episode In
creation He grates on the poetic
soul. He is a nuisance. New York

Edna was a type much less interest
ing, cold, phlegmatic and near-algtt-;
ed; a much smaller woman, too. with
colorless gray eyes.
On the bed lay lingerie of the most
alluring kind, the sort of things that
only women can appreciate. Pile upon
rile of lacy stuffs were scattered about
the room. Negliges so attractive, that
one could almost wish for an nines
as an excuse to wear them. Surround
ed by these pretty things that wom-n
loTe. sat Eleanor Godfrey, who to
morrow would be the bride of Tom
"There's one thing I can never re
gret." she said. "I told Tom every
thing before he took me. It was bru
tally frank. I admit, to tell your fu
ture husband that the best love of
your life has been gfren to another."
"Poor boy." murmured Edna.
"Poor boy. indeed. Dont I have to
live with him? Dont I have to see
him waste his life? And is it nothing

Walking across the room to where
Edna sat. she put her hands on a pair,
of very unsympathetic shoulders.

Edna straightened np a bit and the
lines about her mouth seemed to grow
deeper in an InstVct. ,
"One question, please, before I re a- !
der the verdict. Tou take upon your
oul the wrecking of this man's ex- j
istence. Ton will suck the honey t
from the flower of his life and leave
him nothing but the stem. This is
easier for you than being an "old
maid.' Then, too, supposing that Tom
was in love with some other girl?"

Tour logic is getting stale: so let's go
to bed that I may get my beauty sleep
and make a handsome brids. Think

The lights were put out and Eleanor
was soon fast asleep, while Edna lay
wide awake, as though her brain
ran the words T do not love him and
te knows it" If she only dared.
The next morning was colorless, the
lir heavy; in fact, just the sort of day
to make a bride look out of the win
dow and wonder if she really were
superstitious. It was about 9 o'clock
and Tom was whistling one minute
and singing the next- He walked Into
the bedroom where his friend and
best man lay peacefully sleeping.
"Get up. you lazy vagabond. We
cant keep the bride waiting, yon
know That's her privilege."
The best man rubbed bis eyes,
growled a bit, and finally crawled out.

had pulled it down in front and.

that moment the beat man was hang

The best man was about to rail at

"Jumping Jupiter, Tom. brace up."
Ton look as If yon had curvature of

As the cab finally reached the house
the men stepped out and were usher
ed into the room where the minister
was waiting for them. No word of ex
planation was uttered, and the men
took their places by the minister, who
was to pronounce them xaan and wife
The wedding march was played and
as Eleanor in her gorgeous robes
came forth to meet the man of her
choice. Jack Winston stepoed forth
and offered her his arm. Eleanor was
speechless, but too happy to resent,
and before the gaping crowd the min
ister tied the knot that made them
one "till death do them part."
Then Jack began his explanations:
"Simplest thing in the world." he
said. "You see, Tom ordered the in
vitations, and of course the printer
took ft for granted that it was bis
wedding merely a typographical er
ror, nothing more."
Eleanor's mother stepped in at this
moment and with, a haughty manner
"Then may I ask why Tom gave the
bachelor dinner' why Tom bought the
"Yes. mother" said Jack, with a
j very proprietory manner. "Tou see.
I was -broke at the time, and Tom, as

Just go ahead as if it was his own
wedding and I'd pay him back in good
time. Ton see, I only came Into my
Inheritance yesterday, and that would
have been too late to order invitations,

you ever think that Tom was going to
marry Eleanor? Why. he's engaged

were in a flutter of pleasurable ex

was shaking Tom by the hand and
