Wondrous Ways of Cupid
No Masculine Heart Is So Stubborn That It Cannot Be Tamed
Into Subjection.
(Copyright, 1916.)
Who shall say whore love begins.
How its subtle way it wins?
Gods, who love the rave they frame.
Cannot tell whence springs the flame,
; Man may reason long and well,
j But :an ne\er break the spell.
No man should rail at or sneer at
the remark that married life is the
happiest in the
world, for the
single man never
knows at wnat
place or time lie
will meet the one
woman who will
cause all his de
termination and
theories to melt
like fog before the
sunshine. Even the
men who are the
most strenuously
opposed to matri
mony have their
secret ideals—
some one type of
woman interest?!
them more than
others do — but
ujej are 11 aun
; enough with themselves to scout the
' idea that their ideals can be met with
| on this mundane sphere.
It is equally us less for a man de
I liberateiy to refuse to go to a place
which women frequent or refuse
poiutblank to l^e introduced to the sex
for which he h*s no use. Cupid does

Other Members of Famous Team
Originated “Inside Stuff."
The old Ba't;more team of 1894-o.
one of the greatest teams ever got
: together, originators of the new style
; if ball play, was a galaxy of athletes
! tvho were endowed with brains and
irawn, and made them count in the
jume of baseball. With a pitching

with the old stars who were in the
;ere and yellow, such as Tony Mullane.
•Kid” Gleason and “Dumpling" McMa
hon, the team won three pennants. Ea
ter it added Arlie Pond and Jimmy
McJames. All these hurlers made rec
irds in games won owing to the bril
iancy of the team behind them.
A most peculiar fact about the fa
hitus Baltimores of 1894-5 was that
they were all at one time or another
Dsttery men. Johnny McGraw began
his career on the diamond as a pitcher,
rnd was credited with being very
tricky, but a fierce kicker. Hugh Jen

Weight for pi’ehing, but seemed to
have the necessary avoirdupois to hit
a ball as hard is the best. The noted
| Ed Hanlon, manager of the team, used
I to pitch before taking to the outfield.
Then there was Joe Kelley of the
Torontos. When Joe was a full
fledged Oriole se played the outfield,
but Mr. Kelley won considerable fame
as a hurler of curves and otherwise.
Even "Big D;uT*’ Brouthers began his
baseball career ns a pitcher, but that
was away ba/V. Reitz, the second
baseman, also 'nfield F. Bonner, were
good catchers, -.fid spent part of their
minor league ddys behind the bat, and
not take him into consultation when
he lays his plans, jotting the name of
this man and that woman whom he
purposes to pair off down upon his ref
erence book. It's all cut and dried
for him. A man may balk and run
away, but he is caught and rounded
up another day.
No masculine heart is so stubborn
or fractious that Cupid cannot tame it
iuto subjection in his own unique way.
The one unfortunate part of it is that
Cupid gives no hint or sign that might
put a man on his guard or warn him
to be in readiness. Men meet /heir
future brides when they least expect
and they are not always duly im
pressed with their future heart mate
nt that. One young man who had to

i “Little Orphant Annie”
Says -‘Jim” Riley Was
the Meanest of Boys
Many will be surprised to learn that
there ever was a reai "Orphant Annie.”
“Orphant Annie” is now Mrs. Wesley
Gray. Although not a great many
miles from the poet's birthplace, Green
field, Ind.. Airs. Gray's farm is situated
in the real, old-fashioned back coun
It'was a raw, bleak day when little
“Orphant Annie" was brought to the
Ililey home. She came from a primi
! tive country settlement in a rough
wagon, riding on a heavy board laid
across it for a scat. . . . She re
called the happenings at the Riley
home with amusement and delight.
“Jim Riley,” she declared, “was the
biggest tease and the meanest hoy I
ever seen. I used to wonder how he
learnt it all; how in the world a boy
only twelve years old could be so full
of mischief, and such an awful tease.
“He would draw ugly pictures of us
and write mean things heueath ’em,
and I tell yon. he just nachurly worried
the life out of us. Then he would make
his eyes red by rubbing them, and
pretend he was sticking gun caps in
them. Then he'd pull the gun caps out
of his nose. You cau't guess how he
scared us.
“Then lie had a hateful way of do
ing a trick that a circus man taught
him, with a button and a handkerchief,
by folding the handkerchief around
the button, and then undoing it, and
the button wasn’t there. That made
us awful curious, and we made him
do it again and again, until one time
he dropped it out of his sleeve.”—La
dies' Home Journal.

A Gypsy Picnic.
A gypsy picjrfc is an interesting af
fair. All picnickers should dress in
gypsy clothes; Vhich can be made of
gaudy cheesecloth, old silk and the
like, and as mtuy as possible should
ride on horsen. The gypsy queen should
be the hostess and should ride ahead
■with her chief. She should wear a yel
low dress, red sash and have her hair
arranged in real gypsy style. Immense
brass rings can be worn for earrings,
and tinsel can be used in the general
make-up of her costume.
In the gypsy wagon should be the
provisions—cooked baked beans, brown
bread sandwiches, coffee to be served
in tincups and any additional food the
queen cares to serve. Ited tablecloths
should be used in place of white ones,
and as much rusticity as possible add
ed to the entire program.
Big Agricultural Warehouse.
New Orleans has the largest agricul
tural warehouse in the world. It has !
a capacity of 2,000,000 bales of cotton
and is adapted to the storage of all
other packed commodities, such as
sugar and coffee. It was built at a
cost of $3,500,000 by the state of Louisi
ana and is said to reduce the
cost of handling any agricultural
commodity 40 per cent. There are 23
acres of ground under roof.
It’s a woman’s natural faith that en
ables her to believe only the things
she wants to when she knows she
accompanying his chum, saw there a
young w oman so plain of face thnt he
marveled why the good-looking young
man dancing with her should he eager
to secure her for the next waltz, the
next and yet others. During the course
of the evening, the young mnn who
had fought so hard against coming was
i introduced by the friend he had ac
! eompanied to the very plain young
woman. She looked up with a smile
and that smile so radiated her whole
face that her new acquaintance looked
upon her in wonder. It charmed him,
interested him, made her almost beau
tiful. Her gracious personality, sweet
ness and wholesomeness captured the
citadel of his heart in that first mo
ment of meeting. He could not for
get her or the sound of her voice or
the touch of her hand. He who hud
laughed at matrimony and the notion
that, it took a woman's love to make
a man really happy and life worth liv
ing was manly enough to confess that
he had erred in his judgment, when he
thought the careless life of a buchelor
free lance was happier than that of
the man who had placed himself in
i the hands of a good woman to be loved
! and cared for in the married state.
) Cupid very often allows a man to go
| a great length ere he halts him. He
j can only run the length of his rope—
; linding the matrimonial noose at the
J end of it.

Life Bright for “Kiddies”
Whose Parents Follow the
Advice of Luther Burbank
Luther Burbank, tlie famous won
der worker among flowers, fruit* and
vegetables, has not forgotten to study
the rearing of children as well. Ac
cording to his advice the child’s edu
cation should be largely of his own
working out in a happy world of
mud-pies, grasshoppers, tadpoles, and
frogs. There should be trees to climb,
brooks to wade in. various animals to
pet, and all kinds of little creatures
to study. “Any child who hns been de
prived of these has been deprived of
the best part of Ills education,” says
Mr. Burbank.
Many mothers agree with this idea,
and would discourage any actual book
work for very young children beyond
perhaps reading and writing. Little
girls should be sent off to skip and
dance and cook instead of to do sums
and dictation. The oculists tell us
that no child should read type In which
the capitals are under a quarter of an
inch high and that he should use his
eyes if possible on large things and
out in the open. Eye-strain and ef
tort of attention are source of the
nerve disorders too common in chil

said in New York:
“One beauty about those contracts is
their strict honesty. There are no
paints to grease.”
“It wasn't always so in war con
tracts. In fact, they tell a story about
n war contractor who once broke the
silence of his club reading room with
a dreadful sigh.
“ ‘What's the matter?' a brother con
tractor asked.
Alas. alas: said the first con
tractor. ‘I've just bought five million
pairs of shoes at a dollar a pair and
sold them to the army for six dollars,
and I'm afraid the loss will ruin me.’
‘‘‘Loss? Loss?' said the other con
tractor. ‘What are you talking about,
man? On five million pairs of shoes,
with a five-dollar profit, how can there
he a loss?’
“ ‘My dear fellow.’ said the first con
tractor, sadly, ‘you forget the little
matter of commissions.’ ”—Washington
