SET MRS. ALLEN THINKING
Alec's Occupation in the Kitchen Evi-
dently Meant Serious Results
to Her Pantry.
Annie, the pretty maid employed at
Mrs. Allen's, confided to her mistress
when taking the place that she had
lately become engaged to be married,
but that she and Alec would have to
wait a year or two, and in the mean-
time she wished to be earning money.
One evening, soon after Annie's ar-
rival, Alec came to call, and the family
agreed that they had never known so
quiet a man. They heard the sound of
Annie's voice now and then from the
kitchen, but Alec's words were few
and far between.
"Alec is not much of a talker, is he,
Annie?' said Mrs. Allen the following
morning. "We should have scarcely
known there was anyone with you last
"He'll talk more when we've been
engaged a while longer, I'm thinkin',
mum," replied Annie. "He's too bash-
ful yet to^do anything but eat, mum,
when he's wid me!"

Mrs. A. telephoned her friend, Mrs.
11., the other evening.
"Thank you so much, Isabel, for that
basket of lovely doughnuts," she said.
"Yes know ti/re never yet was a
doughnut so old or hard or tough that
1 couldn't eat it."
"TMd he atrike you in virtual tempor-

"No, sir; he struck me in the jaw."

A lecturer was discoursing on the
prodi^l son. To show his audience
to what depths the wayward yoilth
had sunk, by way of a modern illus-
tration he said:
"A lad left home with good inten-
tions, but evidently got into bad com-
pany. He eventually had to pawn
his overcoat in order to raise money
to keep himself. However, his coat
and waistcoat had to go the same
way. Again he needed money, and
h*ad to pawn his trousers and likewise
his shirt and vest. Then he came to
Charge of the Light Brigade.
Mr. Stevens noticed that the little
daughter of the family ate her cereal
in a far from enthusiastic manner.
"Don't you like that, my dear?" he
"Not pertie'ly," replied the child.
'Why do you eat it then?" asked
The little girl paused with her
spoon on the edge of the bowl, and
looked at the guest with serious eyes.
"Why, it's got to be eaten," she an-
swered gravely. "The groceryman
gives mother a rag doll for every two
packages she buys, and it's got to be
eaten every morning."—New York

Have Yon a Bad Back?
Whenever you use your back, does a
sharp pain hit you? Does your back
ache constantly, feel sore and lame?
It's a sign of sick kidneys, especially if
the kidney action is disordered too, pas-
sages scanty or too frequent or off color.
In neglect there is danger of dropsy,
gravel or Bright's disease. Use Doan's
Kidney Pills which have cured thousands.
