including paper knives of holly and
cedar, were purchased by our villagers,
and copies of several of the paintings
have been ordered.

"Oh, we know by the direction and the

The exhibit is a fine one and wns
viewed with interest by our Northern
iruests. For originality of design and
execution and its tendency to develop
local talent and resources it is indeed sui

The school is doing a great ana gooa

and encouragement. The exhibit re

Sick of Oyster Soup.
It was the head of the household do
ino the talking in the direct manner
that men have with their wives. "I like
oyster soup well enough. It's satisfying
for the time, and I suppose that it's
healthy, but I'm opposed to making an
entire meal of it, as I was required to do
for lunch. Milk and butter and salt and
pepper and oysters may constitute a
variety, but when you mingle them all
in one concoction, and then have crack
ers for a side dish, my imagination is not
equal to maintaining the fiction of varie
ty. His wife placidly informed him that he
would be lucky if he never made a meal
on anything worse than stewed oysters,
and incidentally asserted that she did
not allow any interference in her sole
management of the culinary department.
That afternoon he called on a friend to
have a friendly game of cribbage, and

the game became so warm that he was
invited to stay for the evening meal in
order that the exciting contest might be
carried to a finish. Word was tele
phoned to his wife, who agreed to come
in the evening.
"I know why he stayed," she began as
soon as they were seated for a four
handed game. "(), you needn't kick
me," as she looked laughingly at her
husband. "I'm going to tell on you.
We had nothing but oyster soup at noon
and he was so put out about it that he
thought he would stay here in order to
get a good square meal. I'm glad he
The husband was blushing and the
host and hostess were laughing inor
dinately. "What in the world is the
matter with vou people?" she Inquired,
with a puzzled expression.
"O, nothing, nothing at all," from the
host, between explosions. "We didn't
have a thing this evening but oyster
soup, not a thing."
Then there was a long and animated
discussion as to whom the joke was on.

500 WityN of Cooking KlCK
A certain man made a display of dense
ignorance the other day when he went
into a resturant and asked the waiter if
he had any eggs. "Yes," said the wait
er, "we have." "Well, bring me some."
"How do you want them cooked?" "O,
any old way." "My dear man," said the
waiter, "that order will hardly do. We
have over five hundred different ways of
cooking eggs, and you will be pleased to
make a suggestion or mention a choice."
This astonishing fact had the effect of
paralyzing the customer's tongue for
awhile, but he finally recovered enough
to whisper in awe: "Scramble 'em."
"Ves sir," replied the astute waiter still
lingering, "which way?" "O, any old
way." "Sir," said the waiter in a deter
mined voice, "I must insist you will
make a choice there are seventy differ
ent ways of scrambling eggs in this es
tablishment." "Well, then, fry them
forme." "Which way? we have iorty
ways of frying eggs here." "All right,"
said the customer slowly as he reached
for his hat and arose, "you have one
wav here that I can find myself, and that
is straight out of that door. Good day."

record the fact that in the proof of the

Virginia Band was announced as having
on its program Mozart's "Twelfth

expected to consider "Twelfth Mass" as
meaning anything but "Twelfth Massa-
