Who Is he? What a question!
Haven't you mot him?. Of course you
have. I mot him today on the street.
He grinned his usual meaningless grin,
ignored my hurried olght o'clock class
salute and shouted "Say!" at my
back. A half second later found him
Btrldlng down 0 street at my aide, talk
ing loquaciously about well, I rqally
don't know what It was about. I
didn't listen. I was thinking all the
while which hint would bo the gentl
est and still the most effective;
rather a hard combination to achieve,
and I hadn't yet achieved It when we
turned up Eleventh. Now I ask you,
ray friend, in all candor, doesn't u
lady generally like to have some choice
as to her companion on a promenade,
especially when that promenade is
down 0 etroet and up Eleventh?
The obnoxious man is exceedingly
dense. Ho it Ib who comes to make an
evening call. and Btays well, stays the
limit, because you don't tell him plain

small things as stifled yawns and cas

piece have no effect on him.
He's a crank. Quite possibly hlB

honored custom of counting Imaginary
pigs jumping over a rail fence to keep
my eyes open. The two hundred and
thirty- third pig had landed safely on
the other side before the obnoxious
man took out his watch. Ever since
that time I have shunned Insurance aB
a topic of conversation, looking With
suspicious eyes on the suggestion
thereof though I imagine I am pretty
well up on the main points.
The obnoxious man Is always In the
way. To avoid him Is Impossible. As
well try to get out of swallowing your
Inevitable peck of dirt. And since we
know this to be true we fold our hands
with a sigh of resignation. So be It.
We must honor the way of providence.
The DUnsrreenble olrl.
She's not pretty. She thlnkB she 1b.
Ton to one she's too tall or too Bhort,
too fat or too lean, too red or too pale
and capping all, with eyes that don't
match the rest of her face.
She bores you. She knows It. She
doesn't care. She lines to use adjec
tives, nice, long, expressive ones it
doesn't matter much whether they're
appropriate or not. "Perfectly lovely"
and "delightfully charming" are favor
ites, and may be used in speaking of
anything "nice," from madam's poodle
dog to the latest book. She is especial
ly fond of "awful" as applied to Btrong
winds and final exams.
She delights in gosalp likes to cor
ner you at a party and talk to you
about your beB friend, slamming him
to your face, saying all the mean things
she can or can't think of. Then when
her Imagination and vocabulary are
both exhausted Bhc likes equally well
to clasp her hands with a telling facial
contortion: "Oh, I beg your pardon.
I did not think what I was saying.
How rude of me. You muBt forgive
me. You won't breathe a word, not
one wprd I should die," etc. And you
bow a grim and silent bow and edge
your way down the room, feeling very
much as IT some one had been stepping
on your toes.
She dresses aip-to-date. You can see
her coming three blockB away and hear
her, too. Tho hat of Just the right
tilt, the swish, swish, bwIbIi of silken
petticoat. Have you? Ah, yes; you
have Been and heard her. I know it.
You may even have wondered why her
hair didn't fall completely over her
left eye and have Indulged In Bome
vain speculation thereon; but I assure
you,, my friend, she has pinned it se
curely. It has taken her well, It has
taken her long enough to do It.
She Is religious. She goes to church
every Sunday when the weather is
fine. She generally enters after the
long prayer and bwIbIi, swishes down
tle aisle tp a front Beat, her attendant
meekly bringing up the rear, vowing a
mental vow, he'll never ge there any
more, but there are others. So she
thinks. She Is right. The world is
ful of idiots.
She Is ' two-faced. She turnB with
-the wind. She loyes yoii Monday
when you have 'Chocolates. " She loves
you not Tuesday when you Itaye none.
Sho makes fun of the other fellpw $o
you and makes fun of you to the other
fellow. You know it;- You detest her
Inconsequence. And still you persist
In making a fool of yourself. Why
flon't you extinguish her? I Bay that
pomethjng ought to he done to make
this species a little less evident. Why
don't you do It? J. B. R.
