`By permitting me to act as your

Nellie seemed in danger of enother lit
of laughter. She, who could have sot

a good share of it afteiliard, escorted to
the table like one or those languishing,
city ladies, who screamed at the eight of

Kate's angry glances chilled his very

Miss Irwin was not only a belle, but
eligible to the extent of
. $150,009; and
who knows what schemes had been run
ning, in the little lady's. politic 'head
when she invited Kate to 'spend the
summer with her.
'At any rate,' as she observed to her
husband afterward, *I douldn't ejt there,

Gerard, with a scornful emphasis; 'bat

the ill-coacealed wrath of Mrs. L'Aymar
and the / fascinating Miss Irwin; and
when hp reached the old farmhouse in

GIRLS Mao MUSTACHES. What . the "
average girl • doesn't }know about , mus
taches nobody can tell her. • It would
be the most, outrageous presumption.
Some people have one idea about a mus
tache and some another, but there is no
mistake about it oti thopart of a young
woman. She knows exactly what the
mustache is for; and therO,is no one who,
can get quite as much use out of it as
the girl who fully understands her bus—
iness. The mustache, she kziows very,
well, is made to season kisses with, and
in- many instances kisses derive more
than two-thirds of their sweetness from
the character of the mustache. Some
thing depends upon the color sometimes,
and often the texturdis a matter of real
consideration. To some, ii hoirever, the
mustache in any color or -in an 3 way is
such a perfectly lovely thing that the
girl is not Particular as to; small matters
if it is only a—mustache. That there
shall be a mustache is entirely essential-
There would be uo real sweetness in
life without it and not one girl in eight
hundred would ever falkin love if it were -
not fur the mustache. 1 , It is just the .
nicest thing ever invented to fall in love
with and no _ young man in his right
mind ever fella to take advantage of it.

of room to :grow, and -let us hope the
