Tbu boy laughed, shaok hands with her,
and said : “t'vu h littlu girl juit like you
only she hasu’t got any cloak with pussy

“Here a lady camc ont of tbe door and

Tbe aveaing tLt ludy was called down

“Mother don’t know I came here,” said

A very sensitive editor complains thusly,
“It ifl atrunge how cloael; men read the
newspapers. We never say anything that
anybody don’t like, but what we soon bear
of it. If, however, once in a while wt
happen to say a goad thing, we never beat
of that. Wo pay some man a hundrid
complimenis anil give blm a dnE«o pufTs,
and be takea it all as a tribute ol bis good
nesa, and nover thinks it does him any
good. Uat if we happen to say things thia
man don’t like, nr something be imaglner
