WILL LEAVE JOHNNY AT HOME
Next Time Mother Visits Grandfather
Youngster la Not Likely to
"I think the mother f a six-year-old
boy should have a. pension to make up
to her for the mental agony she suffers.-
said just such a mother. "I
took Johnny to his paternal grandfa
ther's last week, and believe he has
cut us out of grandfather's will. Of
course, we send him to Sunday school
and we both attend church, but we
do not ask a blessing at the table, nor
do we have family prayers. Grandfa
ther does, and it happened that the
morning after we arrived Johnny was
excused from the table and went out
in the yard to play. Grandfather led
the way into the sitting room and we
all knelt down in prayer. Imagine my
horror to see Johnny's little face peer
ing curiously through the blinds and
hear him sing out: 'Hey. in there,
what kind of a game Is that you're
playing? Aint you the rotten bunch
not to let n in on it. I arose and
softly whispered to him to run on and
play, and he sang out: "You're it,
mamma, you're It; make a home run.'
Now, what can you do with a small
boy. anyway? 1 can never explain
matters to his grandfather."

my friends what
Vegetable Compound has done for me
during this trying period. Complete
restoration to health means so much
to me that for the sake of other suffer

has received such wide-spread and un
qualified endorsement, io other med
icine we know of has such a record
of cures of female ills as has Lyuia J.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
For more than 30 years it has been
curing female complaints such as
inflammation, ulceration, local weak
nesses, fibroid tumors, insularities,
periodic pains, backache, indigestion
and nervous prostration, and it is
unequalled for carrying women safely
through the period of change of life.
It costs but little to try Lydia C

George stopped rowing, ostensibly
"Gladys." he said, with an elaborate
affectation of unconcern, to the young
woman sitting in the stern of the
boat, "there's a friend of mine that's

and as good as she is beautiful. He

and he has been going to see her a

Here his voice trembled a little and
he paused to wipe his perspiring brow.
"Beautiful girl, is she?" queried the
young womau, idly dipping her fingers
in the water at the side of the boat.

Mr. Pippin may survive the shock,
but the doctors are making no rash
predictions. Mr. Pippin is a colorless
little man of 55 years. He has no
identity of his own. All his life he
has been known as somebody's rela
tive. First he was Mrs. Pippin's little
boy. Then he was Rosie Pippin's
brother. Then he became Jennie Mc
Oreer's beau. After marriage Jennie
kept her maiden name, among her
friends, and Pippin passed as Jennie
MeGreer's husband. Later he was
spoken of in the neighborhood as
Tommy Pippin's father, and now he is
little Mary Pippin's grandpa.
The other day a ward boss accom
panied by a candidate, drove up to
the front door. "Mr. Pippin. meet
Mr. Smith," said the boss. "Mr. Smith.

Wedding Fee in Installments.
Some of the "squires in rustic New
Jersey seem to be pretty hard pushed
for cash. To get ihe cash they do not
hesitate to use most unusual methods.
One of these J. P.'s advertised the
other day that he was ready and will
ing to marry couples at any time, day
or night, for a consideration of $5 and
that he was willing to accept $1 in
cash down and the rest in weekly in
stallments of SI until the' fee of J5
was paid up. The very night after the
first appearance of this advertisement
the J. P. referred to was called upon
to "make good" his bluff. Shortly after
midnight a couple which had come in
an automobile awakened him from his
sleep and asked to be married under
the installment plan offered in the
advertisement. And the J. P; was
game and made good.
Alison tells how during Napoleon's
Egyptian campaign no sooner were
the Mamelukes observed at a dis
tance than the word was given:
"Form square; artillery to the an
gles; asses and savans to the center."
The command afforded no little merri
ment to the soldiers even at such an
exciting moment, and made them call
the asses demi-savans.
