"I haven't been arguing with an interurban car nor starting the furnace for the landlady," he growled, in response to the anxious inquiries of the assembled boarders. "But you look it," insisted Miss Spent, handing him some candy and a tweet smile. "I've been spending my teaching a girl to paddle a canoe," he confessed, and then sat back to watch the girls look jealous, and the other men sympathetic. "Next time a girl tells me she is simply dying to learn to paddle I'm going to pay all the funeral expenses, but I'll never let another in my canoe if I die a bachelor," he continued. "A canoe is the one spot on earth where it is good for a man to be alone. "The girl I was with had a lump of hair, and a nifty bunch of white ruffles around her hat that made every girl on the horizon look as worn-ou- t as a Canadian on May 25. The other men on the boat kept sizing her up until I felt so lucky at having made a hit that I was as important as a sporting editor at a ball game. "But I knew what I was up against the minute we pushed away from the canoe shelter. She was trying to live up to the daintiness of her attire, and she took up the paddle as though a teaspoon at a pink tea. In less than three minutes I had mentally repeated the prayers for the dying, resigned myself to the inevitable and rejoiced in the fact that I hadn't paid my board bill yet. "In spite of my coaching, we kept going around in a circle, until I felt as though I had been living in the Electric park swing for a year, and when we finally got straightened out for a minute, we hit the bank with a thump that might have started another 'quake in 'Frisco. "It bumped so hard that several cushions some of those I paid for by many theater tickets and boxes of candy went into the water, and then she got mad because when I fished 'em out I insisted on stowing the wet, bedraggled things in the boat. " 'My skirts will be a sight,' she wailed, and in trying to tuck them around her ankles ran the paddle so far up her short sleeve that she tore a lot of the lace before we got When she went at it untangled. again she grabbed the paddle a though she were going to wield it like a broom. "But we got more water later on in the game. She tried to force a passage through a stone bridge, and I scraped my arms steadying the craft by hanging on to everything in reach. "I tried to use diplomacy and get her to change seats with me, but well, say, did a man ever get a girl to do what was reasonable? During the argument we drifted right into the worst disaster of all. It happened to be another canoe which we never noticed until it was right upon us, and then the girl in my boat shrieked and stuck her paddle into the water sending us precisely the way she did not intend to. I was just wondering if we would walk or swim back, when the other boat swung around, ancj its deft guider got out of harm's way in a wink. "Say, you should have seen those women glare. The girl with me was so angry and excited that her pompadour was drizzling all about her face. Her sleeve was torn, her hat at a slant, and her finery rather the worse for the water she scooped in with every stroke. "The lady in the opposite canoe had a pompadour, but it was as slick as a politician, and her shirtwaist had the neck that something around looked cool and simple. Her arms were bare and I didn't notice any ruffles or rings or bracelets. She just grinned cheerfully at my girl and said: " 'Oh, you'll learn after a while,' and floated past. "I guess my girl would have gone to the bottom rather than give up the paddle after that. We jarred the foundations of two bridges until I thought the canoe would split from one end to another.

Practiced What He Preached. Rev. Denis P. O'Flynu, of New York city, used to say that priests ought to die poor and he practiced what he preached. Aside from a valuable library given to the Paulist fathers he has left no discoverable estate no money in bank, no money in the rectory. "He died as poor as the proverbial church mouse," says his assistant, Father Corrigan. "What little insurance he carried will barely cover the funeral expenses. He never saved a penny for himself. After keeping the house on his meager salary he gave away all he had." COSTLY CLOTHES FOR WOMEN. Sums of Money Can Spent for Finery. Insurance It seems that considerable danger to property exists in the practice of burning off old paint before The question has long been a subject of debate in the technical journals, and now householders and the newspapers have begun to discuss it. Those of us who, with trembling, have watched the painters blow a fiery blast from their lamps against our houses, and have looked sadly at the size .f our painting bill because of the time wasted on this preliminary work, are interested in the investigation by the Greenfield (Mass.) Gazette and Courier, which gives considerable space to the reasons for the practice, questions its necessitv and suggests ways to prevent the risk of burning down one's house in order to get the old paint off. It says: "There is a good deal of discussion among householders as to the desir- ability, In painting houses, of burning off the old paint, a practice that has grown very common of late in Greenfield and elsewhere. Insurance men are strongly opposed to this method. It makes void insurance policies for fires caused in this manner. Several houses in Greenfield have gotten afire as the result of this method, and in some places houses have burned as a result. "It is undoubtedly true that when a house has been painted over and over again there comes to be an accumulation of paint in bunches. If new paint is put on top of these accumulations it is almost sure to blister. To burn it off is the quickest and cheapest and perhaps the surest method of getting rid of this old paint." The Gazette and Courier quotes certain old patrons to the effect that accumulations of paint are unnecessary. These lay the blame partly on the painter who fails to brush his paint in well, partly on the custom of painting in damp weather or not allowing sufficient time for drying between coats, and partly to the use of adulterated paints instead of linseed oil and pure white lead. The paper says: "Many of the old householders say that if care is taken at all these points it is absolutely unnecessary to have paint burned off. They advise that people who have houses painted should buy their own materials, and to have them put on by the day, so as to be sure to get good lead and oil. Of course the burning off of paint greatly increases the cost of the job." The trouble householders everywhere have with paint is pretty well summed up by our contemporary, and the causes are about the same everywhere. By far the most frequent cause of the necessity for the dangerous practice of burning old paint is the use of poor material. The oil should be pure linseed and the white lead should be real white lead. The latter is more often tampered with than the oil. Earthy substances, and pulverized rock and quartz, are frequently used as cheap-eners- , to the great detriment of the paint. Painters rarely adulterate white lead themselves and they very seldom use ready prepared paints the most frequent causes of paint trouble. But they do often buy adulterated white lead because the property owner in sists on a low price and the painter has to economize somewhere. The suggestion is therefore a good one that the property owner investigate the subject a little, find out the name of some reliable brand of white lead, and see that the keg is marked with that brand. The linseed oil is more difficult to be sure of, as it is usually sold in bulk when the quantity is small; but reliable makers of linseed oil can be learned on inquiry, and, if your dealer is reliable, you will get what you want. Pure white lead and linseed oil are so necessary to good paint that the little trouble necessary to get them well repays the house owner in dollars and cents saved. s In Use For Over 30 Years. Enormous PRACTICE. Burning Off Paint Af "About four years ago I was afflicted with black splotches all over my face and a few covering my body, which produced a severe itching irritation, and which caused me a great deal of annoyance and suffering, to such an extent that I was forced to call in two of the leading physicians of my town. After a thorough examination of the dreaded complaint they announced it to be skin eczema in its Worst form.

Its cost is quite J200 a yard. "That seems high, doesn't it? It is nothing, though, beside the cost of lace. A court train of moire antique, decorated with gold thread and pearls, was made in Paris for an American lady last year at a cost of $7,500. "To the empress of Russia not long ago the nobles of the province of Kherson presented an ermine mantle worth $50,000. "There are lace handkerchiefs worth $5,000.

It has often been said that spiders are fond of music, but a French Investigator, M. Lecaillou, now aseerts that this is not true. He says that their musical sense must be attributed merely to greed or to hunger. When a fly is caught in a spider's web it buzzes, and the spider immediately makes for the place from which the buzzing comes. M. Lecaillou, by experimenting with a violin, some flies, a piano, violoncello and a cornet, found that only those musical sounds which resembled the buzzing of the flleg attracted. the spiders.
