There arc two tittle words, simple
enough in themselves, that introduce
untold trouble in the world and re
sponsible for more gossip, scandal and
harm than any two words In the Eng

nothing more than, “They say." They
have dona more to ruin the reputa

never quota what Hhsy say* yon may
be quite certain you are not a gossip.
