WHAT SAM THOUGHT
By BILLY BACHELOR.
1 "Well, what do you think of this,
ITIllly?" Sam Martin exclaimed, as ho
liauded mo tho evening paper, point
ilng to a paragraph under tho head
;lng, "Social meanings," which road:
"'Mr. and Mm. J. T. Hamilton an
nounco tho marriage of tholr daugh
ter, Ethol, and Oscar Newman, at
Oraco church, Oakburn, Tuesday,
. "What do you think of It, Sam?"
!l Inquired as I tossed tho paper back
J "It's an outrage, a blanked outraget
What right has Os Newman to marry
anybody but Hoatrlco l'rlco? Don't
all her friends, all bin friends, know
.ho Ib wildly In love with her? Haven't
'they known It for ovor a year? Hasn't
(ho followed Hoatrlco about like a
hungry dog chasing a bono over since
ho first mot her? I repeat, what
right has ho to marry Ethel Hamil
ton? Why, sho's a child, a silly llttln
buttorfly of fashion. Os novor can
lovo that typo or woman, ana you
know it. 11111."
"Yes, I know It. What do you sup
pose poor old OHcar did It for?"
Sam hitched his chair up closor to
jnlno, lighted his plpo and took a fow
'slow Inhalations before ho replied by
shaking his head ulowly and pro
nouncing tho ono word, "Plquo."
"It looks llko it, I must admit," said
I. "And yot I gavo Oscar crodlt for
too much common senso to ovor lot
him do a fool trick llko that."
"Hoatrlco turned him down, and ha
sworn ho would get even "
"Well, of all tho t It's a mighty
queer thing, Sam, how men and
women try to provo how llttlo thoy
really care for tho person thoy onco
professed to lovo bo dooply by turn
ing around and marrying aomo ono
else. How tho proving of thomsclves
flcklo-mlndcd should give thorn ono
moment's plcasuro, or how, undor
such circumstances, thoy can hopo

"It just goes to show, I think, that
tho lovo such people have Is vory
small, not tho grand passion, tho over
powering dovotlon of a great soul, as
they llko to imagine it Is. Hurt vain

denlro to hurt in return nro moro re

than any 'heart wounds' cither man or
woman may feel.
"Tho man who has tried his best to
win the ono woman in tho world and
failed; tho woman who has given her
best to a man who proves himself
false, will not bo In any hurry to bind
themselves by marrlago vowb to an
"Such fatal stops and thoy nearly
always are fatal show suffering self

only half in lovo ever fall.

and says, 'Well, tnnybo I won't show

tosses her pretty bond, pins on n

that she'll just show that man how

"This is far moro dangerous for rt

perament, than for a woman. Tho
woman may come to lovo her husband
if ho Is kind and good to her, but, as
you know, Sam, no man ovor gives
his heart to a woman niter marriage."
! "You aro right about that, old man!
It hurts, though, to think thnt Oscar
could display so much Innato mean

honorable man could allow hlmBolf to
commit such a fraud. It Is a fraud,
a lie, a cheat! Do you suppose even

Explosion of a Flower.
Sometimes tho floral spatho of a
great palm trco will fly open with a
sound llko n detonation In a mine.
Such an event occurred in tho botan
ical garden In Algiers recently. Tho
spatho, nearly throo foot long, wbb
projected to a great distance, and for
somo moments tho head of tho palm
treo was wreathed with golden dust
formed of tho debris of tho flower. Tho
sun'B heat had roasted tho flower to
the color of rust. Tho director of tho
garden explained tho explosion as be
ing due to a fermentation In the (low
