The Fable of the Wise Dame
By POBOTI1Y DIX.
eo they passed up
Once upon a time thire were two young
maids who grew tired of sitting upon
the anxious bench waiting (or eligible
, men to com along and notice them,- so
they determined to get up and go out
. and rustle some on
their own account.
Now, both of
these maids were
most charming and
fitted to adorn any
society. Also they
were there with the
El ad raiment, and

these maids had

advantage of be

mother, who was on
to the game of life,

flict the public by running any bluff
about the glorious privilege of supporting
herself being a cinch far a female.
On the contrary, they said to one an
other, '.'a good home and a ready money
bill payer ts worth two cashiers any day
of the week, and we opine that any lady
will find It less fatiguing to work a hus
band that It Is to work a typewriter."
Unfortunately, however, the elder of
the slaters had not been present wher.

Intellect she was the Sally-the-whole-works.
"Alas' she said, as she communed with
'herself, "my mirror tells me that I am
the human chromo Instead of a living
picture, and J am wise that I will never
win out on my looks, but what Is beauty
compared to brains and a noble disposi

"I have llstend with profit to the many

devotion to dress. I have also observed
how they deplore the fact that a creature
with a soul should spend so much valu

some useful pursuit.
"So It is up to me for the natural waist
line, end the puffless coiffure, and to give
a moving picture illustration of all the
qualities men admire most In women,"
and with that the elder sister cut out the
fashions, adopted rational dress and de

The younger sister, on the other hand,
continued to help out nature with the
rouge pot and the peroxided frankfurter,

"What you say Is true," each man thus

be Just the wife some other man should
marry, but not for me.
"She comes up to my Ideal, but she
does not fire my fancy, and I apprehend
that If I were married to a wife who had
no faults it would get on my nerves until
I should arise some night and bat her In
