That's his nature- you hit Ws' thumb with a tack ham-laer Tittd he'll lamhast you over the old dom6 with s axe or sledee. Admlttort-a considerable portion of his life has been spent dealing with bqhunks ^ho didn't resoiit cussing; he's been Mayor for 8 years or more -and Mis. lama Peach breaks Out into fresh .blushes ovory time Paw Bats his wind up on the publick plat-fornii, oiid sho aint no Hutterite at tliat. It's not good taste-and has lone since lost its effectiveness. Wo are fond of Mayor Ilardie, but 1 do ask bif hlw, as a decent respectable Sromau-to remember that we ladies desire him to be agentlcman in his 'official appearance as mayor. In other words, -we don't give a damn about swearing-but it sounds like hell before ladles-you eet the point. We know that he is a gentleman'at heart-but ho still has much boy about him, in that he likes to be smart on retort. It's old stuff, cut it ears bit of. What actually -waSrBig Ec^d tried to kiss him on one c)>�ek and Big ftill actually did kiss him on the other. � Paw was so surprised he forgot to explode a "Damn" or a "Gawd only noes" for a spaee of Vi. minutes by the post office clock-and we ladies failed to blujm for 'tao seconds-which was better than the previous average. Xo which "Old Man of War" is pitchin lacks pop. That is now an accepted fact. He only made three wild throws with .meiv>pa leases, all nits, and Mrs. lama Peach wiys-when a wild pitch comics off the other fellow scores. That's a fact to. If Hill Oliver and "Man of WUr" have a ..cdi-tain code of personalities that they as 2 men accept and understand, WQ ladies should in publick bo spared, and the citizeus in general, could wprry.along without them. Mrs. Peach, in her osporlenco, at civic meetings never saw one to equal the Wednesday evening performance at Central school. A SHORT CUT TO HEALTH AND THE LEAST EXPENSIVE .

SpeaJk.eaay and ride your horse at a canter-a gallop gets you ail het up arid sweating. And when you are at a loss for .words. Well wo all revert to the'stone age at times. The last 3 years has seen a great mellowing all around. Tftke Dr. Levering. Bob Nlmiyions and Donald Mc-Nabb, regular old' flro eaters, usually agin the govt, oi general principals, but not so now. Their cross examinations and suggestions never Were aa fair, lacking sarcasm for sarcasm's sake, showing a real healthhll interest, that heretofore had been lacking. The meeting had reached a noar riot when whisperiiig Dave, called a halt, with that stentorian voice of his he brought quietness- and decdrum out of a near chaoa of unmitigable person-alities-by pure strength of his Tocal organs. Some organs.,Oh, if loiily had a voice like that, with my brains. Goodnlte! Anyway I'd bo h�ird from -even if 1 stood a mile awaif. When he assumed the chair, the tempest stilled. No cbance tn^^e world for anyone to be beard wb^n Dave Blton throws open bila ,"c�t out." pe only pulled 2 puns jftilcUile a ^record ! for him-and the met^lng ba'dthat as well as pespectably. c6nduc(^d meeting to be thankful-for.. He picked up the^rat^bllngs of the ciuestioners, and. tied .th6m piP into a nice neat square.paiiikaEe, and in simple unflurlshed .language presented them to the mayor IiJar ffis reply. ' Every question so put iwas a big stride to a more perfect uii'de'rstand-in& Something'-w^s acmpllshed. A t vote of thanks was due >Ir. Elton. But I he has to exerdlstf thtff Voice, anyway or it ^ould go stale. Son\o voice, I said. �   � At this writing 4t:looks .as;� "Man of War" wins in a walk. There is the plebiscite^; as to salary, the plebiscite as tp'managerial form of govt. Mrs. Peaqfa suggests that there also be a plebiscite'^ 'desirability I of profanity at piibllc.'meetings. Good ! old plebiscite.

The Trustees Mrs. Peach has'stepped out of her t sphere, over a year ago, in an attempt at sarcastic uear wit she tried to I throw a few sidelights on the very important school board. She is still more than, interested. There is evidently no ladies coming out, so we have to stay to home. We can have our say just the same, and our guess is as good aa a thile, as they say In the movies. Mr. Hogg's apprenticeship is to valuable for the ratepayers to now loose. He should head the poll and be the next chairman of the board. His views of deciding salary increases sotely on merit should be applied. Wo shoot a votis at him. ' R. .A Smith is absoolootely sane anil in his right mind-a man of sound judgement, considerable . ability and possessed of keen business discernment. Wo shoot another vote at him. Then we take of our glasses, shut our eyes and wait to see who is nominated. For one,.2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8 years. Doc Levering lias been a candidate for school board honours. King Bruce's spider is dead and goue-but Doc is ever with us. Mrs. Peach is not disguising her attitude towards him, in the past when she says, that IE she could have set rat poison, to get him and had felt she could get away with it, she'd try anything once. That is so far as his desires for tnisteeship were concerned. Wo looked on him merely us a bull in the chiua shop or worse. But good old mellowing has been going 01) in those years. The nmoliora-tiou of striving has had its oHoct. Ho lias had a lot of the rough corners Knocli-eil off. In spots a oonsidoraljls polish begius to show. Vou 'Can see (he refleciiou of sane citizenship .c-flected I'roni those surfaces. The cnule-uess lias departed ;!.nd autieful uitii.-lo has tal^en its place. All, from the rough comes the gem of worth-as it were. lu other woi'ds, Mrs. Peach thinliS he is almost human, certainly a good citizen.

The mountains, plains, the sinking . sun. The rest that comes when the day is done. TOO "CHEEKY" The president of a California college has banned cheek to cheek danc ing at school datices. The practice was, of course, too cheeky. "Wheat pool is a new western game that Is growing-in favor- There is some' satisfaction in D'An-nunzio's political activity. He is too busy to write poetry.

THE joy of Christmas giving and receiving lies chiefly in choosing the gift mat is wanted. Greater than the gift itself is the thought that underlies its selection. The rightly chosen gift-modest though it may be -is the most appreciated. Thinking of a man and his requirements leads quickly to ^Gillette Safet^Razor -the businesslike two-edged razor that divorces Stropping and Honing from shaving, saves his morning minutes and brings him Twentiem Century shaving comfort.  The Gillette Safety Razor is known by every man everywhere as the best that money can biiy, and there are few appropriate gift articles the best of which can be bouEfht for $5.00. ~ A'l. K.
