William H. Morgan's Remarks
Woman Who Questioned
Habit of Smoking.
William n. Morgan, who conducts
one of the best boys' camps in Maine,
has studied human nature in both
lioys and men, and knows just what
to expect of people. The mother of
n boy at ids camp noticed that sev-
eral of the Instructors smoked and
she wondered If this wasn't setting a
bad example to growing boys. Mr.
Morgan replied, remarks Collier's:
"Regardless of what we may think
about the propriety of smoking, we
are obliged to recognize the fnct that
the majority of active men do smoke.
Texas and Tillman counties especla' | If you select Instructors who do not
ly. Many other counties report hea
sales and those which have not re
ported are expected to swell the
Oklahoma county's total sales to
date is $3,600, an encouraging re
turn. City merchants have put th->
seals on snle in their stores. First
returns from the mail sale Indli u
generous response from tluiso elian
While Htxson Is admittedly en
coil raged by tho opening prospect
he Issued a warning tod - agalus;
over-confidence of seal sale workers
and those interested in the healt
movement. Sixty thousand dollars
Is a large amount to raise from the;
sale of seals at one cent each and it
will take every effort of the teams1
working until the last minute to
reach that quota.
Tho seal sale started Dec. 1 an 1
lasts through the month. Proceeds
will be used by the counties In which
tbev are rnlsed fer health
smoke you limit your field and mn.v
have to do - without other desirable
qualities. Or if you ask men accus-
tomed to smoking suddenly to change
their habits and do without tobacco
for two months, the chances are that
they will slip away and smoke when
nobody Is looking. The boys are
hound to lenm of this and then they
have the example of men doing things
1 on the sly, which Is Infinitely more
| harmful than the example of smoking
would be. I don't care anything about
smoking myself, but I do light a cign-
rette occasionally before the boys so
that they won't think thnt maybe I
smoke only In secret. Nothing Is so
Important for a boy as to learn to do
whatever he does do In the open."

table was covered with scraps of
I silks, laces, veils, discarded collar nnd

Lnte In the afternoon a dear old lady,
i wearing an expensive Persian iamb

she had any gray veils. The Woman

mediately produced one from among
the veil pile.
"This Is a very pretty one, and It
has a deep, lacy border; It ought to
look well on It Is such a good-
looking taupe shade."
The dear old lady held the veil up
to her face, and asked how much It
"Eight cents, madam."
"Hut Isn't It too gray for me, dear?"
"No. I shouldn't think so. Resides.
It Is the best veil I have here; no

The old lady fussed a hit, smiled,
nnd walked away. Hut In ten min-

"Say you don't mind, Stan I Just
this once I" coaxed Stanley Davison's
charming fiancee. "It's uiy last real
fling before I settle down forever."
The man gazed smilingly dowu into
the girl's face. Was it impossible that
she should settle down? She was teu
years younger than himself and he
loved her for her very youth and live-
liness and yearned for the time when
her gay spontaneity should be definite-
ly in Ills keeping.
"Let's see, Malda, just what is tills
last ifiad lling Idea?" he asked ten-
derly, slipping nu arm about her slim
waist und drawing her close. "You
want to go oil to the boys' commence-
ment without your ring, keeping it a
terribly dark secret that you belong
to me. Am I right?"
Malda nodded a fluffy bobbed head.
"Precisely, Stan. And, of course, I'll
behave myself. Only, well, you can

the question." Stan spoke decisively.
"Now, how about those Irresponsible
brothers of yours? Won't they let the

easily. "And you're a dear, Stan. I

statement, did not say so.
There had been a little session with
Hob and William on the way up from
the station regarding Stanley, whose
stanch admirers they were.
"Now, Bill," pleaded Malda, "don't
mention ring. No one's to know I'm
engaged, and Stnn's perfectly willing."
"Aw, go on, Malda, that Isn't fair,"
"Let the kid alone," Insisted William,

Malda's glance was cast modestly
downward or she might have been
startled to see an expression of con-
sternation, almost horror, creep over
the fnce of the man who had Just pro-
posed. He swallowed, bit his lip, then
rose unsteadily. "This la—Is too won-

But Malda, bubbling over, was re-
living the last few days with Stan.

Carthage and the surrounding hills,
rich In history, Is a modern city of
residential villas. Archeologlsts point
out that if this building Is permitted
to continue, their excavation work
will be seriously hampered, as the |
new proprlet-nrp object to Invasions Oi
their yards by workmen, no matter
what treasures of history may lie un-
derneath. Two French government
employees of the department of Tunis
lately bought a piece of ground on
the site of the old city, and before
building their house started to find
out what was underneath the surface.
After patient digging they discovered
a temple of Tanlt. Unless the French
government stops the sale, real estate
agents will shortly put on the market
some 240 acres of the site of Carthage
at a total sale price of $200,000.
