as he. hasn't been allied

"H i funny what a 'tot of things the Doc
has been asked to define that we always
though were perfectly simple. First It was
whisky. Everybody 'thought they knew
what that, was, t-Kpertally the man who
raid he could take It or leave It alone, and
then took It. ' It Seemed the eminent rhap
rrone of the poison .squad didn't know
after all. for when It came to a show down
the president, tried to define It and then
"fnsssd It to the attorney .general, that be
ing one Of the odd legal Jobs.
"I supptose When Dr. Wiley has been re
versed on his mince pie finding or findings
that'- the leather odds and ends that the
president will' turn the case over to the
secretary ' of the Interior, that being the
department most affected by mince pie.
Otherwise he will have: to leave the defini
tion to Aunt' Delia, fhe ekpert pie maker.
i 'One thing, you'll never hear of the su
preme court banding down a decision that
mlnoe plo Is n Illegal combination In re
straint of savory tastes ' and odors and
order It dissolved. In to Its Conaixtuent com
ponents of pastry, apples, rafxlns, ginger,
suet, more, spice, meat, very hard cider
nd trade secrets, ,
"Spring Isn't exactly the time to discuss
mince pic, when the strawberries are on
'tfie straw and restaurant shortcake tastes
Just like the. old-fashioned article did not.
Nevertheless.' 'With 'the- long and hungry
perspective of time stretching betwixt
hence and next Thanksgiving, one can con
jure up a very pleasant vision of that gol
den' brown pie. Just reeking like a spice
shop and a' drug store In a prohibition state.
"The memory, scents that alluring whiff
as the first V Is excavated, opening a trap
door In the pie. The crust that melts In
the mouth, the mince that starts a fight
on the Inside, the delightful stupor which
follows the meal and the original night
mares which pursue the diner Into dream
land. Could any mere laboratory expert
describe these In legal terms?
"Mince pie Is pie filled with mince.
That's all. If manufacturers have found a
coal tar or chemical substitute which wll!
taste like nectar and ambrosia, which will
eight down the tummy like lead and will
make night hideous with violent night
mares of murder and sudden death, why
let them make and sell It. One thing Is
sure, a supreme court decision would not
-radequately cover mince pie."
"Why not?" asked the Chair Warmer.
"It would need more shortening," chortled
the Hotel Lobbyist.

with uplifted hands and eyes like saucers.

There are several styles lit which you
may convey your acid concoctions. But no
one Of them Is quite so well suited to the
revolting draught as the unsigned letter.
A woman who had been a girl In a cer
tain town went back to visit. She had
worked with brain and hand and aching
heart and had achieved some distinction
and a good living.
Why such Inoffensive accomplishment
should inspire you with a desire to serve
her with vinegar punch Is unfathonable.
But you prepared the dose.
Tou wrote her a letter. Bhe need not
feel smart. She haA not done so much.
Then you Inserted the characteristically
catty blackslap that women like you al
ways administer. Tou said she was old
enough tb have grown children. Illumlnat-
lngly, you suggested that she would be
far better employed If she married and
settled down to mind her own business like
other women. It waa the height of silli
ness, you Informed her, for her to go to
daneea as If she did not know she had
crow's feet and was getting fat. Then you
returned to the age question which seems
such a significant one to the woman who
have done so little to justify the length of
life with which the birth record credits
them. Tou said that the "boys" who were
escorting her around were old enough to
be her sons. Tou fairly Jumped up and
down In a malignant linguistic effort to hit
her In a weak spot or scratch her In an
open wound. Tou shot every known Ir
ritant, every villainous Ingredient into
your punch and mixed it with are rage
strong band of an Infuriated woman.
Why? Can you tell ? Can you define
what makes you eager to wound and scour
age and anger another woman T It must be
Jealousy. She has qualities which you
know you lack. Or It Is envy. Tou over
estlmte her kind of success, and want It
Bhe could tell you that her small fame has
been earned so hard that it baa lost its
glamour. Bhe could tell you, too, that she
would rather be In your place, a mother, a
homekeeper. But not you. No, no, not
what you are in your black heart and
senseless head. - .
Tou have no place In the' public eye.
And not having brains enough to realize
that you have a place which should be In
finitely better, you choose to regard her
aa a mote In that eye.. Tou constitute your
self the surgeon for her removal. Tou
want to make the operation' Just as painful
as possible, too. Tou taunt her homeless
ness, her childlessness.
Not,, you resplsable coward, because you
value those blessings, but Just to brae about
what you have, that you may make her
possessions seem little. Tou narrow-minded
female pigmy, you cannot even guess how
deeply you wound. Tou have not the
comprehension to understand your own
success at hurting her.
You contemptible backbiter! The original
snake was condemned, to stinging the heel
of women. But you have Improved on
ancient privilege. With devilish ambition,
you have mounted higher. If your dearest
purpose could be achieved, you would bit
Into the very heart of the woman who
.moves you to snvy.
Take Baths in School
Though poverty Is not necessarily synony
mous with slovenliness In Germany, aa It
seems to be In soma other countries, still
the government finds It expedient to bring
up Its future subjects with a due apprecia
tion of the benefits of soap and water,
says the New Tork Sun. Hence the cur
ricula of the new grade schools Include a
semi-weekly bath. This Is administered
to groups of twenty boys or .-girls at a
time. Each la provided with a one-piece
bathing suit, a towel and a piece of soap,
which are kept In individual lockers.
Around the walls of the bathing hall are
twenty tiny dressing booths, curtained off
with twenty rubber curtains. A space
twelve feet square in the center of the
floor Is marked off by a surrounding ditch
a foot wide and a foot deep. When this
Is filled with nice warm water twenty
pairs of feet, five on a side, go splashing
Into It and tweaty little bodies get a thor
ough lathering and a good scrub. When
the teacher In charge thinks the cleaning
process complete and often supervision Is
very necessary the water la drained from
the ditch and the bathers take their places
on the central platform, where they are
finished off with a cold shower. Then a
good rub down, a hurried dressing and
back to class they go again.
The clothes are very often scarcely fit
company for the clean little bodies that
get into them, but tha school authorities
are confident that the influence of the
school bath in time will extend not only
to the clothes, but to home and parents.
The little boy had persisted In trying to
annoy all the passengers In the car. At
one of the station a very fashionably
dressed lady took the seat directly back
of him. He climbed up on the seat and
began roguishly to wink at ber.
"Johnny," said his patient mother, "you
must not wink at ladles. That is naughty.
If you do, you will never grow big."
"Why. ma," was the startling reply,
"that fat man across the aisle winked at
the lady, and he is big." LlpplncoU'a.
A flying man died from bruises sustained
while attempting to alight from a Green
wich church steeple In 1722.
' A furious controversy has been raging
In Oldenburg, Germany, over the project
to tax all unmarried persons. The pro
ject, which has been before a committee
of the Landtag, is to Impose a supplemen
tary Income tax on incomes of the unmar
ried which exceed 230 a year. Only per
sons between 10 and M years old will be
subject to the tax.
Hitherto all such taxes have been Im
posed in men alone, but the unchivalrous
Oldenburg legislature proposed not to spare
the women. This la the main cause of the
opposition. Opponents of the tax declare
that women are usually not themselves
responsible for their unmarried blessed
ness, and they ask how can a government
decide whether a woman has done her best
to get married or not.
Dr. M It tier, a fierce enemy of the pro
ject, dectarea that If the law passes the
government will have Itself to act as a
marriage agency. In the Interests of Justice
it will be obliged to give every woman
a chance of refusing a husband before It
takes her for obduracy.
"Regarding some of the customs of the -Mexican
girl," said a man from El Paso,
Tex., "there are current many mistaken
'Tor example, she is popularly supposed
to play the guitar, to wear a mantilla and
to smoke cigarettes. Aa a matter of fact
the guitar la almost aa unknown Instru
ment among the women of the upper
clasaes, the becoming mantilla la rarely
seen In the streets save on Good Friday,
having been discarded In favor of hats
In atrocious taste, and the senorlta never
smokes. Neither doea she make a habit
of attending bull fights."
