There bad bfn a guest for dinner, one of
tlione frequent -babblers, of platitudes that
i Inclfn rt morder: without .one's being sble
' to remember"' tdngle- speech that would
warrant a yerdlct of Justifiable homicide.
I The Confirmed Conimuter had asked the
visitor. The. bore was hi ' K"Mt. Hence
he Blade a .shallow1 effort at eprlghtllness
while the nian who" edited' n encyclopedia
In hl lighter moments droned on and on
m nu Vl , n .
Toward the,, close of the evening the
learnt-d person..' perhaps oit of deference
to the- shallow"', fntellect of hla hoateaa,
turned to a., Hat 'it dls6usslon of a recently
publlnhed treatise'' on "Death."
"Tha subject la 'one In which 'I have ttl-
,iiii,J' taken a deep ln'terest.'' he remarked
?j i.. 'UnA "ih. 'ihlhor takes UD a
novel question th Influence of love oil
faith. .The .raoajt fugftlve. ti.e moat mortal
of passions, he aaya. la the one that com
pels a belief In Immortality. Auk any
woman, who elattnsMtf be an -unbeliever, If
aha la ao convince, that when she dlea ahe
will cease sd'atttrly' sxlstiaa to be willing
for 'her Husb'nfid to' Wiarff again, and all
her materrtalftm goes' ro pleoes. If she's
honest she ll admit that hf ghost will
come back and haunt him H he ahould ever
think or such thing!"- -. ..
For the first -tlms. during-a long, dull
evening the face of tha Hopeful Housewife
lighted with Interest. . i ' r . .
'Oh, I don't know." . ahe said. "I'm
pretty much of pagan and -I can t Im
agine a woman's having any vlndtatlve
neaa on the iubjeofc.. Of course, she'd feel
badly td think 'shs'ha been aupplanted by
Znother woman,' but Irhe'd realiae that ahe
as dead an hadn't anything to aay on
Ihs Confirmed Cpnynuter laughed.
"Don't you. see you're,, giving your whole
case away."-b said,,. "You claim not to
believe in Immortality and yet. you talk
about hew you .would- feel after you're
dead. But," ba.. added, lightly, "you know
1'vs bad your .succesaor, picked out a long
tlmo-half a doaeo of er. In fact. , Every

The .Hopeful IJousewlfe laughed, a an
jves do t,thls styla o.. burner, though
ne of them can aee any point in u.
And from that moment till tne visitor
took hla leave her face wore a'look of sol
emnity and preoccupation
"Thank'heaveir' he's- gone!"' erfclalmed the
Commuter when h had closed the door
upon hla proay guest.' "Ntiw I can get a
chance at'tn evening papers. What's the
matter?"-' ha adad Quickly aa ha noticed
that MS wife's eye wer Aung with their

"YOU ACTPAIXY TTlorGHT ABOUT

"But there is!" the Commuter persisted.
'Or perhaps you're Just all tired out from
that fellow's monologues. Never mind,
dear, I'll never ask him again.','
"But you must!" rejoined his wife stiffly,
"I think he Is very Interesting particularly
In his Ideas about love and death.' And he
actually compelled you to tell the truth
about what you are going to do when I
Her voice quivered and broke as her
imagination dwelt lingeringly on a portrait
of her own decease. .."..-.
"What do you mean?" asked xfce amazed
Communter. "Didn't you understand I waa
only fooling? Can't you take a Joke? Why,
baby, where Is your common aense?'
He laughed reassuringly, but the mask
or tragedy was not lifted from his wife'a
"You needn't think that I don't know It"
she began, excitedly. "I realised the very
minute you met that woman you were at
tracted to her and she was doing her best
to ensnare you."
"What on earth are you talking about?
Are you going crasy?" gasped the as
"Give me credit for just ordinary powers
of observation," she anawered cVldly.
"Sometimes when I haven't fert well I've
had a sort of suspicion thaft there ' was
some woman Juat sitting bark walling to
step Into my shoes. And no you admit
that you've actually thought afiJiut a sue-'
ccssor In caae of my death and 'hive picked
one 'out. Yea you did, and there'i '-no uae
saying you were Joking, hut' remember this!
If you were to marry again and let some
other woman live In our house and have all
my Moorish collection and " my ' beautiful
Japanese prints I'll come back from the
grave and haunt you both!" - '

"One old chap tried to explain1 Its

"In that case amethysts wouldn't be

the purpose for which It was intended?"
You stared at the lady who made the
request with your most Insulted, how-dare-you
But there Is nothing the ' individual In
front of you In the line to the box office
would not dare. You have placed your
shoulder against and rather under hers
and havs steadily rammed her along till
she is heyond caring what else happens.
Just so you take your shoulder out of her
back. ' .
Why, you even shove when you go into
church! Ths other day at a wedding you
began your persistent propulsion on an
elderly person with a real lace cape.
'I don't mind having my vertebra dis
located, but this cape la an heirloom, and
won't stand an attack from the rear,"
she said to you.-

raged innocence. . It. would be a blessing
if you could get behind yourself and, shove,
Just to cultivate a fellow feeling for the
drastic massage treatment you give your
Wctlms. ' J
U may ba your, energy. It may. be your
nerves. You may offer any . Jtlnd of an
excuse for the maddsnlng imposition of
your shoving shoulder on the anatomy of
the one iu front. But none of them go.
The- ton who endures your continuous
I it pact feels a wild lonKlni; to whirl about
and deliver you a variefc.Ued lot oC sample
styles of prodding. Tha exquisite Joy of
returning your evenly applied and forward-
urging assault with a series of slaps and
bang and whacks makes her.ifcands Itch.
Bhu Is Just losing herself in the delights
of a f.Nileuffing imagination when the wo
man In' fj out turns around and says: "I
wish you would top pushing tne!"
In her frenzy at the mistreatment of
her shuuldt-r and tho injustice jo her man
n rs, M,e crk'e, "its no, .my,' fault! It's
somebody just behind in!" She sees the
scornful look tli.it m-hUm her as the re
proachful one rfiiriVrs u mental verdict of
her guile and in obviously disgusted at her
cowardice in not uirig up to her shoving.
Oh! if wd only dixpense. with our man

way? Wouldn't it be a rich and rare re
compense to be ulilti to turn o nthe ehover
and thump and bump and baUtr and beat
And, Alone with your straight-ahead
pushing, you have the most exasperating
babit of side-stepping and pushing the
one who walk with you Into the gutter.
It does no good to change over. Your an
atomy works to both sides. '
Of course. It's a habit. But it's the kind
that stirs an Impatient rags in the suf
ferer that makes her want to Jump on you
physically and linguistically.
Just watch out! Borne day you'll be
banging on the arm of a man. He may
think you have cute,, coxy, cuddling little
ways when you begin It; but by the time
you have Inserted your elbow between his
ribs and bruised hla intercostal muscles,
besides steering him into the trees along
the walk and making him tread the nar
row ledge by the curbstone, he will think
you. and your shoving as absolutely pro
voking and unnecessary as tha rest of Us
do. You will have shoved him quite away!
The Lovely Rose
The wild one is loveliest of all.
What flower so delicious of scent?
What blossom so exquisite of color?
But Its loveliness Is not enough, forsooth.
This most delightful of posies must go
. Yes, were Is not for Ha thorns, the cattle
would eat It.
The language of this variety of the
flower of love Is simplicity.
It's a relative of nearly all of our de
lightful fruit trees and berry bushes. '

Page: Too bad that your correspondent of
Ash Creek Line is having such a time with
his frogs. (Ca-chool Bneeslng again; oh.
my!) He thinks it Is the weather that so
affects them. Perhaps. T aaked my father
(ca-choo!) what he thought was the trouble
and hs said hs guessed, they didn't have
poods that antics 'to a cool and comfy nap
or sweet repose. That may be. But
wouldnt't a little New Thought treatment
set things right? Ths Bachelor should
have a talk, with his frogs; ' tell them
that the ponds are cool, fresh and soothing'
b, so very soothing (soft pedal) that
argument and croak their testimonials
without stint Now, I can't guarantee the
treatment to work like a charm, but 1
think It's worth trying. And, too, Mr.
Editor, don't you think if ths Bachelor had
a few artificial frogs to us aa stool
pigeons It would help some?
Another thing has the cross-eyed mule
anything to do with the frogs not swim
ming? (Important queatlon) Does he drink
from the ponds or cavort round them, oc
casionally stopping to catch a glimpse of
his physiognomy and form superb in the
still waters? If so. It would be well to put
a stop to such doings, and then aee If the
frogs don't take a plunge.
A man who can walk off with tbe honors
of a fifty-yard foot race and a waltslng
contest ought to find a way to make frogs
Pappy (ca-choo!) and I hope his inven
tion to prevent hens scratching up gardens
will provs an excellent thing. By tbe way,
wouldn't something of that kind bo a good
appliance for the scratchy man or woman
who overdoes the thing? Hit upon that
Invention, Mr. Bachelor, and thousands will
rle up and call you blessed. ' ' .
I asked, my father (ca-chool) If frogs
should swim so as to be In condition for
ths market. He scratched his head and
said he thought so, but that maybs they'd
be all right If they weren't swimmers. Ths
thought cones to me that they'll probably
exercise their swimming muscles, anyway,
while in a somnolent or semi-conscious
state. They'll dream they are swimming
and well, they ars.
Juat keep that mule away from ths
ponds, practice soma New Thought treat
ment, and you'll get good results, Isaao,
Bmlllngly yours. A STAID MATRON.
