Mrn. Goltt and Mrs. Jones were
about even In their working knowl
edge of the grent national game , and
the men folks therefore backed them
up ] cheerfully , assuming Uiat they
would break about oven.
After a half hour or so of play Uio
visitant took the lead , as the sport
ing editor might say. It was only a
penny l ante , flve-cent limit game , but
then people have been known to clean
up a flrst-rnto little bunch of pin
money in even such a juvenile game
as that , and Jones already had bin
chlpH stacked up into four cute llttlo

would reach over and borrow ton

"Got a straight ! " whispered Mrs.
Jones when she found opportunity to
whisper without being observed , and
Jones gave her a look that said , "Go

been pretty good that evening , and
Uio pot , after the way It had been
sweetened , looked worth while.
Finally Mr. Goltt called her. "All

Mrs. Jones. "See < iuecn , king , ace ,

Origin of "D'Oyley" Linen.
Tow know the oilgln of the word
d'Oyloy. In the reign of William I. .
Robert d'Oyloy , a Norman knight , was
granted an estate at Hook-Norton ,
which ho hold on the condition that on
every feast of St. Michael ho tendered
to the king a linen tablecloth valued
at three shillings. The ladles of the
d'Oyloy household embroidered these
line cloths , whlcji were exclusively
used at the royal table , and as they
were very beautifully worked on the
finest of linen they were called
"d'Oyley linen , " and so nowadays the
name d'Oyloy Is applied as then for
line linen cloths.
