FLATTERY COUCHED IN PUNS
Sheridan'i Famous Compliment and
An Anonymous une to
' Britain Beauty.
A recent writer, recallinsr famous
compliments to famous beauties, in
cluded punning tributes to distin
guished British belles. It was Sheri
dan who, when the charming Miss
fayne inquired solicitously concern
ing his health, replied with the gal
lis true 1 am ill, but cannot com
plain. For he never knew pleasure who
never knew Payne.
The author of the other verse is
unknown, but it was addressed to
Miss Isabella Poyntz, a lady so beau
tiful and popular that tt was a stand
ing joke in her family to inauire.
when the mail was delivered, "Where
is Isabella's proposal?" If Isabella
repudiated the receipt of any such
interesting missive, her brothers
feigned the greatest astonishment; if,
as irequently Happened, she main
tained a blushing silence, they did
not miss the opportunity for teasing.
ne nnaiiy married the earl of
Exeter. It was a brilliant match
for her,' and, in the social sense, a
suitable one for him, but since he
was the son of the artist-earl who
married a village girl, it is probable
the suitability lie had in mind was
of a better kind. His romantic father,
who went awooing incognito, and his
lovely mother, Sarah Hoggins
whose unpoetic Tennyson was care
ful not to mention when he celebrated
their courtship in his ballad "The
Lord of Burleigh" must surely have
transmitted to their heir their own
unworldly temperament Miss Poynti,
an exquisite blonde, was still young,
fair and flower-like when she accepted
the earl, but she already rejected so
many eligible suitors that some so
ciety versifier put a punning compli
ment into the mouth of Cupid him
"Men arm against my shafts in vain
That pierce all armor's joints
But Isabel with gay disdain
Outdares them, Poynta for points 1"

Difficulty in getting to in. eeawara we.
Id to account largely for th lack of
general European buying . that weakened
prices today. Congestion of railway faclll
ties between here and the Atlantic was In
turn ascribed mors or l.ss to U-boat dangera
which had delayed loadings from elevstors
to VMsels and had caused a snarp auvancs
In marine war risk rates. In this connec
tion, much talk or additional railway em
bargoes on sas'bound grsln' shipments ac
companied ths bearish aentlment that es
pecially dominated the market in the last
half of the sssslon. Rumors current that
Ihe sale of British treasury bills In Ihs
United States would be sbsndoned may alao
have had a bearish Influence, but as a mat
ter of fact the confirmation of rumors did
not become tiubllo unUl after the market
here had closed.
Scantiness of initial deliveries on Decem
ber contracts formed the basis of the tem
porary atrength which manifeated Itself In
wheat prices during th early part of tha
day. A proposition to make atorags In Chi
cago easier to obtain had been defeated and
this fsct did a good deal for a walls to pre
vent, aggresslv selling. Such consld.ra-
tlons. bowvpr. wore virtually Inst eight of

stocks of corn trndpd to wmakn the corn
markt Indnprndcnily of depression due to
the weakness of wheat. Primary arrivals
today were more than double the total, on
the correnpofiding day last year. Oats
flagged with corn. There was eomri sea
board Inquiry for oats, but on account of
the railway embargoes no shipping sales
Despite higher quotations on hogs, the
provision market had no spirit. Helling
came chiefly from commission houses and
waa due largely from the weakness of grain.

Following its custom of many
years, ths Palace Clothing com
pany, 14th and Douglas streets,
will, as a special holiday gift to
customers, give away absolutely
free with each $15 purchase of a
suit or overcoat, a forty-two-piece
dinner set. 1
This custom of the Palace has
always met with instant approval,
as it affords an excellent oppor
tunity for any man or boy to ob
tain a high quality suit or overcoat
and present for the mother, wife,
sweetheart or sister a fine china
The dinner sets to be given away
this year are of good quality china
with a fine gold band around the
edge. As there is only about 150
sets it is plain to be seen that late
customers will be disappointed.
Palace suits and overcoats at
$15 are the highest quality clothes
you can purchase for the money.
Never before in the history of the
store has the stock been so com
plete as now, and with the added
inducement of this fine china set
free you will be assured of a real

located at 14th and Douglas
streets, will unquestionably be the
busiest clothing corner in town.
