The Girl Who
Would If She
By THE JESTER.
I am asked to say a few words
about the girls (and they are, curious
ly enough, a fairly large number),
who seem to be, as far as the marriage
marker' is concerned, superfluous.
Well, I have no objection to doing so,
Even if my words are accepted as
final in certain quarters, I don't sup
pose they will materially affect the
course of the world's history or, for
that matter, the judgment of one sin
gle male soul who is contemplating
taking a wife.
My petitioner is inclined to torget
that superfluities are bound to exist.
It is no use our worrying oar heads as
to whv thev exist, still less attempt
ing to legislate for their usage. The
fact remains, and we have got to ac
cent it. She also overlooks the fact
that twenty centuries ot alleged civ
ilisation have tailed to convince any
one except a few odd eugemsts and
other congenital lunatics that mating,
except by the process c attraction, is
not the right and proper thing.
It is all very well to argue, as av lot
of people do, that certain girls nd
certain men would make excellent
wives and husbands. Very possibly
they would, only nobody happens to
think so, except those people who
make the remark, and, curiously
enough, they are the ones who never
seem inclined to put their theories
frankly, l can never understand
why anyone ever attempts to argue
out love or anything connected with
it, on the book. One has only to look
around and see the people who do
et married to appreciate the fact that
nothing is impossible where love is

The Times When Human Hearts 'Are United
By FORTUNE FREE.
Napoleon .was a wise man who
knew much about the Jiuman heart.
He recognized the strange power of
misfortune to ally people whom no
prosperity would ever unite. When
one of his proudest marshals achieved
a wonderful success against the
forces of two of his enemies he ap
proached Napoleon fbr his praises.
Napoleon declared he had done well
and expressed his admiration of his
measures against such a union.
But he warned him there might be
a big danger still. The marshall
shrugged his shoulders and scattered
the pinch of snuff he was conveying
to his nose as if he were scattering
the combination of those shattering
enemies. - '
"What could they effect now?" he
"You may defeat two people while
they at;e prosperous," pointed out Na
poleon, "and find them more serious
enemies than ever when unfortunate.
When prosperous, armies rarely act
together. Scores of small causes of
dissension arise which separate them.
All these disappear in a time of ad
versity. They are swept aside. Then
leaders are apt to become really
united as they never- have been be
fore. Beware I"
Bret Harte once told the story of
a community in the wild west who
learnt a lesson to that effect. There
was one man among them who had
picked up a considerable smartness in
medicine and surgery. He was de
cidedly useful, but that did not pre

jected to him shooting him one day.
No one bothered particularly about
the incident until sickness broke out
in the camp. Then people used tb
walk from one cabin to another, la
menting that "Old Pills" had been so
unfqrtunateljr cut off. They recalled
then all of his good qualities.
He was a fine fellow, "Old Pills."
One man remembered ( how he had
traveled ten miles one fearful niirht.
when every yard was full of danger,
to visit his sick child. Another re
membered that "Old Pills";, never
worried him for pay, but was always
ready to do his best. I hey was quite
right. He had been a thorouarhlv
good fellow. But they had thought
remarkably little about him when he
had been so helpful to them. They
sighed now. Why had they not shot
