Ing traits of John and the' children? The confidant is bored in tho hearing and thinks you are veriy foolish In the telling. Ther are pe lenty of big things to discuss, If you are not equal to them, talk loss, Nover got the Idea that frankness is a cloak,.for miisdoings, The open man nor of guilelessness and none too much brains is as different from frankness with a purpose as the woodland Vio let from the artificial copy.

GREAT LINES FORGOTTEN BY THE AUTHOR.

Someone expressed at doubt whether two conu accutive liues composed of words of one syllable could be found in our language, Lord Nugent at once quo. ted: "By that dread name we wave the sword on high, And swear for her to live-with her to die., Campbell said lie did not beliove in the lines, and asked where they came from. *"From your own 'Pleasures of ilope1p, said Lord Nugent, "I'll bet you a guinea you can't re peat it," said Campbell, The bet was taken, and Nugent star.

HOW TO DRIVE HUBBY TO THE CLUB. Do not hositato to remind him every few days that you have nothing decent to wear-never have had since you were married, Ask him every little while, 'Why is it we never have anything lilke other people; never go anywhere?" Do not fuil to tell.him now and then that he has been hard up for money ever since you were married, Do not forget to twit him with the fact that he tooke you out of a comr fortable home and buried you in an obscure, cut-of-the-way place; and that he never has time to go anywhere with you. Do not encourage your children to wear their clothes a long time, and never try to make them last, When a garment begins to show wear, to got a little out of date, just cast it aside and get a new one, New clothes look so much fresher and smarter than old ones, and one feels so much better in them. Do not try to economise too much, You know it is the liberal soul that gets fat. Be generous with your hue, band's money.
