WDMKN often wonder what other
women talk nbout to men. It
Isn't often, however, that they
have tlto temerity to lnaulre. Natur
ally, they don't ask the women, and it
Is reasonable enough that they hesitate
to ask the men what Is said to them.
In the first place, a woman doesn't
particularly care to deepen the convic
tion steadfastly Imbedded In a man's
Intellect that she Is excessively curi
ous. Then she shrinks from giving hint
the Impression tliiit she Is showing
over-Interest In htm, or that she carett
what other women say to him. .Most
of all, she Is deterred by the fact that
however pmlseworthy her zeal for In
formation might be, yet the evidence
thus assured would seem underbred,
and on a par with the person who list
ens nt keyholes or reads letters meant
for other people's eyes. So any par
donable curlosltv she mny feel on the
subject Is little likely to be gratlllcd
through straightforward methods, nnd
as theie are limitations to oven the
sharpest cms, she can only reason
from a personal standpoint and draw
Inferences accordingly.
If she Is clever and up-to-date, she
knows unless a man is frightfully in
love with her that he doesn't Want to
talk about herself exclusively, and
fiuldcs her conversation accordingly.
She also knows that he never tires of
having her talk about himself, but be
tween these topics Is a wide range of
material, ho she Is compelled to won
der. It Is seldom, therefore, that she has
an opportunity to gain intelligence on
the matter at llrst hand. When a wo
man icpcats to a friend her remarks
made to a man she is prone to add
frills, and the friend knows it. So the
other day a woman, who frankly con
fided to the public the sort of conver
sation she affects with mankind, was
overheard by another woman with a
great deal of Interest.
The speaker, or rather the "talker,"
- she was that, could not be called
'.ctly young. She was at the inde
finite age which always keeps observ
cis guessing, and the man to whom
bhe was addressing her remarks was
unt'iubtedly the object of her Intense
ffec. -n. He wasn't an interesting ob
ject to ili unprejudiced observer, but
he was apparently an Apollo and a
deai to her. They wcien't married
yet, but it was apparent that they ex
pected to be. She was saying: "Do
you know what I'm going to get just
as soon as I have time? A pearl neck
lace sham yet such a good imitation
you can't tell It from the real. Kven
an expert can't unless he hammers
It to pieces. It will go mound my neck
s-overal times, so," making evolutions
with her hands to illustrate the going
thcieof, "and, of course, I'll have a
leal diamond clasp, but the necklace
won't cost morn than twenty dollars
and you can't tell it frcm a fifteen
thousand dollar one."
The man looking at her intent
ly, but did not, apparently, feel wild
ly enthusiastic on the subject of pearls,
lust then the car passed a florist's
window full of Easter bloom.
"Oh, but 1 love flowers," exclaimed
the voluble lady, who had not once
ceascd chattel Ing "I do love 'em. I
don't care for a. few, but want just
lots and like to squeeze them up so,"
and sh hugged herself to Illustrate
her devotion.

Did you over look over all your
earthly possesions and wish you could
have n rummage sale for your own
benefit? Theie aie lots of things you
wouldn't mind giving away for a mis
sionary box to help out a charily fund
but theie aie other things really good
articles, handsome, useful or conveni
ent which you don't need but the pro
ceeds of which would he very accept
able. You do not feel like giving them
away and yet could spare them If a re
turn, even of a lesser value were made.
You are tired of that pair of vases.
They belonged to a cantankerous old
aunt and the tiny faces in the decora
tionsalways seem to wrinkle up at you
as herft once did. You know they are
worth a goodly sum, but you also real
ize that you have no means of placing
them on the niaiket and would feel
embarrassed to offer them to a second
hand dealer. You wish you could ex
change them for a small rug or cur
tains for the lihinr.v. You nio so dead
ly tired of those vases.
Then there N that bleyele. It cost
ninety dollais and is a beauty, a high
grade wheel and all that, but your
friends have taken up other fads and
you are ready to do the same. That
wheel occupies too much room in the
house, and how you do wish it weio

they could trade handsome new style
furniture for nn antique bronze or a
real Colonial four-poster bed, They
long to see something else In tno place
of possessions they once thought per
fection. The eternal spirit of change
Influences them powerfully and they
are quick to grasp opportunities.
There Is a possibility that all these
misfits may bo adjusted. Tho Trib
une proposes to start a department In
a few days which will enable people
to get what they want and dispose of
what they don't want of course with
in reasonable limitations llxcd by a
reasoning public, If you have a Bos
ton bull terrier which you could part
with nnd very much yearn for a
graphophono, through the medium of
this department you may effect a hap
py exchange and yet have'your Iden
tity strictly unknown except by the
persons with whom direct communi
cation is established, Somebody Is
sure to be simply dying to possess a
Boston bull terrier with bow legs and a
doubtful expression on his upper lip.
That somebody may have a grapho
phone of a baby cairlage or something
else that you waul.
There Is a first class carpenter some
whenj In the city whose wife wants a
folding bed and who will gladly give
his services In making spring Im
provements In your house In return.
Another man has an Incubator which
he would like to "swap" for a camera.
To be sine If you should make tho ex
change you may probably want to dis
pose of an Incubator a year fioin now,
after gaining more or less experlenco
and spring chickens but Just tit this
time both of you will be happy.
Among the exchanges which aie fre
quently offered might be suggested:
paper hanging, for qcmetory lots, gold
watch and bicycle for diamond ring.
Ice cream store and bakery for small
house, carriage for a typewriter, mas
sage services for a diess suit, lessons
In French for lessons In stenography,
old coins for butterfly collection, pair
of horses for seashore lot. encyclopedia
for a sewing machine, dentistry for an
ofllco desk. A car load of saw dust
for a wheel chair, a banjo for a. bicycle,
grandfather's clock for a party dress
In good condition. (There is pathos
and romance In this proposlton), a
piano for bedroom suite, a gun for
boxing lessons, a dog for a cough
syrup recipe, dressmaking for whist
lessons, etc., etc.
Now If you have anything for ex
change from a maltese kitten to a coal
mine drop a line to the Exchange edi
tor of The Tribune asking for rates
and information and giving your opin
ion on the subject.
"I like violets," she continued, "and
I want them in bunches, a heap at a
time." Then she rapidly changed the
subject. "They've got the nicest kinks
to the new shirt waist," she confided.
"Right here," placing her plump hands
on her hips, "there is a little silt so
and It lets all the fronts come to the
front 'where you want 'em, and doesn't
drag the fulness to the back, where
you don't want it. Good idea, Isn't It?"
The big man, with a wrapt expression
on his visage, blinked wisely, but
probably felt bewildered in his mind,
as he tried to catch up with her mental
.skips. Just then they leached their
corner and alighted, nnd the people in
the car drew long breaths and looked
at each other in a friendly way, secret
ly wondering what next that woman
was saying to her victim, who doubt-

S To the afflited.K
F every one in the world were healthy and happy what a glad day Easter would be.
But the sun rises every Easter morning on a multitude of sick and afflicted. The
Easter lilies .gladden the hearts of the sick and well alike.
But to the sick something more than the Easter lily is necessary to bring that hope
and cheer which every one expects on Easter day. The well need no physician, but the
sick need a remedy.
Nearly one-half the people in the United States are suffering from some form or
phase of catarrhal ailment. These ailments take different forms at different seasons
of the year. In the springtime catarrh assumes a systemic form, producing nervous
ness, lassitude and general languor.
Systemic catarrh deranges the digestion and through deranged digestion it im
poverishes or contaminates the blood. Thus we have blood diseases and nervous de
rangements through systemic catarrh.
Peruna is a specific for these cases. No other remedy yet devised by the medical
profession is able to successfully meet so many phases of spring ailments as Peruna.
Men and women everywhere are praising Peruna as follows:
A First Class Tonic.
Win. A. Collier, Assistant Paymas
ter TJ. S. N., writes: "I have taken
Peruna and recommend it to those
needing a first-class tonic.''
A Great Tonic.
Hon. M. C. Butler, ex-U. S. Senator
and ex-Governor of South Caiolina,
writes from Edgefield, S. C: "I have
been using Peruna for a shoit period
and I feel very much relieved. It is
indeed a wonderful medicine and he
sides a great tonic."
Splendid for the Nerves.
Robert B. Mantell, the famous ac
tor, writes from New York City:
"Peruna is splendid and most invig
orating refreshing to the nerves and
For General Debility.
Hon. Jno. V. Wright, of the Law
Department, General Land Office of
Tennessee, writes: "I wish every
one who Is suffering with general
debility or prostration could know
of Peruna."
