Instead ot telling her 'what he wants dono by word ot mouth he leaves on his desk, or on the kitchen table, or anywhere else where she- is likely to see it, a note curtly directing her to "Dust the din ing-room," or "Turn out my cup board," and so on. The other day he bought some note paper, with the usual die-sunk ad dress imprinted upon it, from the sta tioner, and ordered it to be sent home.

The Same Line. Several "commercials" were seated in a railway carriage, when the door opened and an elderly woman enter ed, whoso appearance denoted that she was a native ot the Emerald Isle. One of the party, who posed as a wag, at once began to extract amuse ment from her by asking a number of ridiculous questions, to which she replied good humoredlv, and at last exclaimed: "Now, sorr, I've given you a good dale ov me history," may 1 take the liberty av axin what ye are yersilf? What ye do for a livin' loike?" "Certainly, ma'am, certainly," was the ready reply, "I'm a. traveller in the hard and soft goods line." "Indade. now," said Biddy, "that's quare, my ould man's a traveller, too." "Indeed, ma'am," was the surprised rejoinder. "What line is he in, pray?" "Just the same as yersilf, sorr, the hard and soft goods loine—he thravels up a ladder wid bricks an' mortar." The Inquisitive bagman did not press for further Information.
FEMININE TRAITS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 17 April 1914
FEMININE TRAITS. A woman walking on a city foot way will generally choose the inside. She does so partly in order to look at the shop windows, but chiefly on ac count of the slope of the pavement, which is less on the inside. In trams and omnibuses women mostly sit near the door. At the far end you will, as a rule, see a majority of men. When men read while travelling they nearly always read newspapers, but in the hands of the reading girl,-you will, with rare exceptions, see a book. When a woman is crossing a street with much traffic, she runs, in nine cases out of ten, and the older she is, the more inclined she is to run. But the man walks very deliberately. A woman holds a closed umbrella by the middle, and usually clasps it to her body. No one ever saw a man carry it in this way. A woman usually raises a cup or a glass or a fork to her lips correctly—that is with her el bows close to her body. Most men stick their elbows out, against all rules of etiquette. In lighting a match ...

Already Equipped. "Don't know whether it's new or not. I heard it at G said the man who had recently returned from that town. "There's a rich widow living just outside the place," he continued, "uud after several elderly gentlemen had vainly endeavored to lure her into matrimony, a report gained circula tion that she was a regular man-hater. Finally a wealthy widower, carrying with him the evidence o£ good living and the heartiness that seeks con genial companship, visited the town, and was soon a caller upon the in tractable widow. "After ho thought sufficient ad vancement had been made to justify a proposal he proceeded to feel his way. " 'Beautiful home you have here.' "Yes, I enjoy it.' " 'Fine outlook, fine trees, very fine all round. But there is one thing lacking.' " 'Yes.' " 'It is an Adamless Eden, don't you know. You aro so good in everything else that I should think you would be glad to share these blessings with a husband.' " 'Are you proposing, sir?' " 'In a tentative w...
