THE BETTER TIME. i MEN OR WOMEN. 1 Edith Gilbcrtson writes In the 'Dally Mail':— 'Is it a riddle?' asked Bob, when I read it out to him after dinner; he generally flippant then. 'No,' said I. 'It's a serious ques tion: it's in the paper. Which of us does have the best time, do you think — men or women?' 'There's no question about it,' said he. 'Which of us has to get up early, and go to the office, and stop there all day, and grind and grunt year in and year out, and then come home and look pre.tty, just to please — you?' ! 'That's not a fair way of putting it,' said I. 'Because lots of women have to go to offices, and do horrid things as well as men, and they have to come I home and look pretty, just to' please — you!' I We looked at each other across the hearth for a minute or so.
