If it 1>e so with authors what ought ere to expect of cheesemongers stockbrokers, ami the rest of us. No fewer than twenty-five out of the list never married at A number, including Milton, Buiiyau, iynl Boutiny. made several attempts. As Johnson say*.

The grave question confronts us as-to whctlrer authors are not a- capable of choosing their mates- as plumbers ami lawyer*. The writer is so milch j»t home that lie becomes as vfuriliui as the .old cane-bottomed chair. Two £pecple who can survive twenty-four hours of each biters' eojiipany under such conditio n- are happily parried.

I recently re* I a treatise >ri this distrcs--ig complaint, and the author, evidently a food -incr. gives as a cure the following: "Eat .ut* and drink hot milk before relir ng." and will follow. -Well, in the interest of pilfering Sanity, I have made the experiment, and as far
mi I am aide to, will relate tho experience. Tho writer was perfectly right. I di.l go to sleep. Then a fru ml with his head ut.der his-arm came along and asked mo if I wanted to buy his feet. 1 was negotiating with him when a dragon on whic\ytf was riding slipped out of his skin and left me floating in the air. While I vas thus considering this situation a bull with two heads peered over the edge of a well. As I was sliding down the ticket collector came along, and I asked him how long it would be before we should reach my station, and he told me that we had passed it four hundred years ago. He then calmly folded up the train and put it iu his ticket pocket. A♦ this stage a clown bounded into the ring and lifted up the tent with all the people, and I stood on the groufid watch-in,* kiyself go up in the air. The captain of the battleship said. "Sound four bells," i.ud I heard thtin. Then.I awoke and found I had been sleep-lug exactly five minutes. No more peanuts.

Itui a very peculiar attitude was struck hurvcfk. I i a North London police court a d fcndanl ad [rilled that- lie only butted til? prosecutor in the si 1 math with hi.* head. After which 1 take it the pool fellow lost further interest in the argument.
Now when wo reflect that the plan of butting people is rather common, I feel very curious as to how this plan of defence originated. Those who do I it seem to act instinctively. Ii must be inherited famttcwhere. It could not certainly have been in-. | Merited from *ur alleged forefathers, the chimpanzee, because that animal bites, and never bulls. The practice must hive originated from st me ancestor with herns. And when we consider thai a certain person is portrayed with horns whoso offspring we ar.« alleged to be, this investigation assumes a rathir disquieting attitude, and *e had better leave It.

Probably that might be p-H down to strain 01 the times. Professor Mnensterberg tells to that life is less strained today. and that our sole trouble w noise. Attempts have been made to flop t le shrieking of motor ». We like music, but we can get it at ihc ra. last year Capi. Murray. M.P., tried to educe a Bill to stop noises in the s'reels. Sr> n ay in the near future look with confidence to a tiiue when noise will be aholidieu. the milkniAn wii crawl up to our doors wi h cans of rubber, met or cars-wtit lie silent, the baker will side the loaf down the area tcp. dogs will bark "111
whispers, and the foundry will be turned into a test cure homo. It might then be a prison offence to M-ectc in public.
With our noise, and bustle it is no wonder we have loit the art of smiling. They are suffering that way in Fraice, too. The girls iliere who serve in the shops have lost the art of smiling, but they are going to regain it. A Paris journal tells iiip they have just founded a Shop Girls' Univ ersity, where, among 'he many things to be taught, is tho an of smiling. Formerly a French girl smiled 011 you as if she had been working all' these ycirs in th.' hope I hat you would call. Now her smile ha* come off, or got mislaid toniowhere. She doc* not care* whether you buy an opera cloak, a packet of pins, or a postcard. Upon the smile of th« Paris shnjf'girl-depenls the nation.
