"STICKY FLY-PAPER."
"No, air, I will not go with "you.
BDBldoB.f It's none of your Affair."
Professor Bessoy had taken his
botany class out Into tho beautiful
woods on a field trip. Tho Btudonta
classified tho flora and fauna of tho
vicinity, tho fUBsers each caught a
butterfly, and I wont to sloop behind
a big log.
I was awakened from peaceful
dreams of lco cream sundaes sprin
kled with mosquitoes, and yollpw lob
"Itera with green and red wings,' by tho
sound of voices and a snapping of
twigs. It was very cOol whore I was
and from tho conversation I imagined
that It was rather breozy out thero
alBO. Tho voice I heard wap clear and
light as tho tinkling of lco in thin
cut-glass. It clinked a fow moro
tlmoB.
"In fact I uttorly fall to boo what
poBslblo concern of yours It Is to
know with whom I spend my Sunday
evonlngB."
Thon another voice, low and Bort
of fuzzy round tho pathetic parts, an
swored :
"Of courso, If I'm not to bo con
sidered at all "
Sho "Well, It's your own fault.
Why don't you nak for thorn earlier?"
Ho "And every tlmo I do nek for
a date you'vo got one already. Oh, I
sco through It all."
She "Through what?"
Ho "You think you'd botter get
rid of mo boforo you graduate All I
have to say It If you llko that fat
head "
She "What fathead?"
Ho "Why, If you lovo him huh,
why go ahead. I'd hato to marry any
ono with such poor Judgment."
She "What fathead 1b who?" (You
will cbBorvo- that Bho Is speaking too
fast.)
He "Oh, I'm on to tho gnmol Mat
rimony Bpond my monoy; alimony
anothor honey. There's as much truth
aa poetry In that."
Ho (Aftor a pauso) "Thon I don't
suppopo you'll como to our dartce?
She "That'a tho melody."
Ho "I buppobo you think that ho
of tho moon fnco will Invito you out
that ovenlng?"
She "I havo no Idea what you are
talking about."
Ho "But don't hot all your chips
on that."
She "Why?"
Ho "Oh, because."
She "BecauBo why?"
Ho "Woll, bo's taking tho girl he's
ongaged to you know ho Avae prac
tically engaged, didn't you? Say, sho
cortalnly Is d pippin, bollovo mo'
Sho "Oh 1"
Ho "Say, you ought to see tho
drosses! Absolutely tho niftiest
things on tho campus."
She "Is that so? I wonder whoro
Professor BosBoy is?"
Ho "Sho'a my dream angel all
right all right. Bet your necktie I"
She "la that so? I think we'd hot
tor bo going, don't you?
Ho "Of courso, I don't suppoBo It'B
any use for mo to ask you for any
moro dates?
She "Why not? What makes you
think that?
Ho "Well, you'ro tired of mo I
can aeo that. You "
Sho" Why, no-o-o."
Ho "You aeo, I waa going to ask
you to go to tho Pan-Hell with mo.
But now "
She "Why, how perfectly grand of
you, Billy 1! Of course I'll go I And

Ho (dubiously) "What?"
Sho Isn't that a charming little

all that I could see of them was allt-
