A short wlulo ago we heard some of
the older folks who aro in tho habit of
giving socials, making a "holltr" bo
cause the young people didn't come
around and buy all there was in sight.
Now that may bo all right. Hut as
a rule the joung people aro just the
ones that do pationizo tlieso socials
Hut how does it go when the young
pcoplo give it social. How many of tho
"papas" and "mamma-." go and upend
fifteen cents to help them in a worthy
ounce. An instance of this kind oc
curicd last week when ttiu junior class
guvo a social. How many older peoplu
wero there. Wu will wager aycai'o
subsciiptiou against a doughnut that
there were not live. Ami then talk
about the young peoplu not patron
i.lng tho older people's socials The
"older" social givers should learn a
little lesson in lecipiocity. If jou
haven't the ambition or are loo darn
stingY to spend hfteeu rents to help a
class of young peoplo in an honest
effort for education it is poor policy
for the young people io assist the older
ones in an effort to save sumo heathen
in a foreign country from going to
hados by sending a missiouaiy at the
post of two or tluee humiied socials i

This week while ipissi"B down the
street our attention was attracted by a
very drawing window display. Soino
ono was selling vapor batli cabinets.
The cabinet was displayed in tho largo
snow window mid also a picturo of
how the apparatus worked Wo don't
know whether it was tho appaiatus or
the picture that most attracted u.-.
Hut it was undoubtedly the pictuie.
Tho cabinets, wo jodgu from the pic
Hire, are made for the gentler sex. At
least tho one on xhibiiiou was a hum

tho open cabinet (in the picture) was a
