"George," said the tearful young wife, ''be- fore our marriago you used to say my kisses were intoxicating. Now you never kiss me at all." "Well, my dear, responded cruel George, "you see I have signed the pledge, and never touch anything intoxicating any more." Mr. Younghusband: "Don't you think, my dear, that you cook twice as much as we need?" Mrs. Younghusband (artlessly): "I did it on purpose, darling. I want to try some of those Hints for Housekeepers-How to Make Dainty Dishes from what was left over Yesterday.' Binks is the busiest man in the country now." "That's strange. I thought he was so rich he had gone out of business." "His riches are responsible. lie bought a big touring auto a short time ago. Now, when he isn't fixing some break in the machine he is in court defend- ing a damage suit." A bishop in full robes of office, with his gown reaching to his feet, was teaching a Sunday- school class. At the close he said hé would bo glad to answer any questions. A little hand went up, and he asked: "Well, my boy?" "Can I ask?" said the boy. "Certainly," said the bishop. "What is it?" "Well," asked the boy, "is dem all you've got on, or do you wear pants under dem?" <4wycr: Ah! a case of slander, you say?" Aiaior Bounder: "Yes. He called me a cheat, thief, and scoundrel, and defied me to find a bigger black-hearted villain in the towi. So naturally I came straight round to you Grandpapa: Toiamy, Tommy, you aren't be- having well. Do yo\i know what I should do if I I 'nm were a little boy like you?" Tommy: "Yes, grandpapa, you'd do the same as I do, 'cause if you didn't- you wouldn't be a little boy like mo." Betty: "$0 Maud is engaged? Well, I'm sorry for the 11,1111. She doesn't know the first thing about keeping house." Bessie: "Oh, yes, she does." Betty: I'd like to know what." Bessie: "The first thing is to got a man to keep house for." Hubby: "I don't see why you shouldn't exertt yourself to make me happy." Wifey: "Why, of all things! You know you told 'me when I accepted you that I had made you tho happiest man on earth. What is the use of my trying to improve on that? Do you remember, dear," he asked, as thelr sat down on one of the rustic seats in the park, that I cut your initials on this tree behind us three or four years ago?" "Why, no, George," she replied, "I don't remember that. Are you sure?" He rose, walked round the tree, and in- spected the bark closely. "Yes," he said, "it's the same tree all right, but it was another cirl."
