SOC. ED., A MOTOR
RIDE AND A STORY
Being: the Harrowing Facts In
Connection With a Woman
AND ALSO AN AFTERMATH
By MELLIFICIA-July 16,
There wai a iociety editor who
dwelt in a town hard by the Missouri
river, laboring on a great home and
fireside companion, otherwise
"metropolitan disseminator of the
dav's muck." Take your choice.
Once ,in the course of the day's
labor, (he confided to the thousands
of readers of the columns, how some
charming matrons of society had gone
on a lark, substituting summer widow,
ers and bachelors as companion-play,
fellows, instead of their husbands.
It so chanced the very same even-
two gay Lotharios called on the said
s. e. and invited her to go automo
biling which ,as the evening was very
warm, she consented to ao.
"Ho, ho, hoi" laughed they, and
the ringleader of the widowers quoth:
"We have a ereat scheme. The
bes way to suppress publication of
one's larks is to take the scribe with
you. Being 'particeps criminis,' the
incident is closed."
Which is why this story was writ
ten. Summer widowers needn't de.
velop such a strong sense of security.
