watching the yong girls, in their ab
breviated bathing suits, saunter in
from a dip in the Perquimans,
brpught to mind something ah old,
old woman told me once.
It was some twenty years ago, and
this old lady was well in her eighties.
She said that when she was a young
lady and wore the sweeping long
dresses of the period it was consid
ered most immodest to allow even
the ankle to show the least bit, and
if, upon occasion, wh'ile sitting in
mixed company, a girl's foot should
happen to extend out a few inches be
yond the edge of her skirt, another
girl seeing the shocking sight would
murmur "muggins". - That, she said
was the signal to the girls to be care
ful, for somebody's foot was show
ing a little too plainly.
Dear, oh, dear: Why dosen't any
body ever whisper "muggins" any
A certain Hertford woman motc
rist, commenting on the havoc
wrought on the highways by drunk
en drivers of automobiles, advanced
the suggestion that the highways
should be turned over entirely to the
drunken drivers six days in the week,
with sober drivers in possession one
"That is an odd idea", somebody
said, "Why only one day for the so
ber drivers ?" "The drunken drivers
would soon all be killed", she replied,
"and . meantime they would not kill
anybody else. This would leave the
sober drivers in .complete possession
of the roads. , It wouldn't take long".

her head in sympathetic understand

eloquent in her appreciation.
