Harris. ideas 1 am juju Injo i Tiht a course of study in the Ilat Dweller. I suppose said his Friend. It would of co arse be necessary in that connection. Hydrostatics Mig a t help a Man out too. Do you Hap pen to know what you Are talking too too Well. Several of my most cherished ideals have been shattered lately by an iconoclastic air Shaft in our building and i want to find out people Are merely careless of the opinions of their neighbors or whether they Are ignorant of the Soti nil convey inf properties of the said Shaft. It seems impossible that you should not hear what the rest of the House is saying. And yet if they do 1 Don t understand Why they Are still Chil to me when they meet me on the Stair or in the Vestibule or Why they Don t take a Tumble and shut Doug the windows when they Are talking Over private mat is that what you that is most certainly thai i do. Ii i want to express my opinion of the piano playing on the third floor or the inconsiderate was in which the Man on was to be compelled to bleed to death without an Effort being made to pre him. Sticking plaster he said was the first usually applied in such cases. Valere was the sticking1 plaster ? where in Thunder lid the owner of the female voice keep the sticking plaster malediction of Sev eral varieties of the sticking plaster Laud on the disgraceful Lack of tem prevailing in this place. I stepped out and called gently to my wife. She came and after she i listened for a moment i asked her 1 if the recognised the voice. No i am not articular in curious about neigh but anybody who had heard what i . Sonic us c v to thing of the personality of the Man who could say such things. She said it was or. Jackson. 1 told her not to jest on such a subject As or. Jackson. It did t seem to me and i m not what you d cull a particularly reverential Man. But she stuck to it that it was Jackson and 1 had to bet her a Box of Cardy to keep her quiet my own theory was that it was the Cigar Salesman up above us. I had heard the Cigar Salesman demonstrating with the janitor about the heat when the cold weather first came on. And i thought i recognized his style. However about an hour later i heard the Street door close and looking out of the window 1 Sau or. Jackson. 1 noticed that he had a strip of Black court plaster just below his neat whiskers. 1 smiled at him As he looked up and lie Only bowed. I guess he was afraid his wound would crack open if he disturbed the natural order of his Princess of Wales Itow she her in Curcis and personally after intr 1 its. Its what my wife the floor above us kicks off his boots at Midnight i go into the room opening on to the air Shaft to do it. I open the windows As a further precaution and 1 a. In c adj i dial Hull Rous Bell like tones. If on the other hand 1 want to Tell my that owing to the state of the Market and other circumstances Over which i have no control she will have to defer the Purchase of that hat for another week or two. I first close both window and you Are not willing that they should even suspect that you have to practice a reasonable remarked the Friend. Said the Fiat Mueller you Don t always grasp Cay in Otic. T in t go much what 1 say to my that i care about folks hearing it s what my wife says to me. Of course she say it in the heat of the moment and does t really mean it but people who heard Lier and did t know me might suppose that she was relieving herself of her candid and unbiased opinion of my Eon duct and Tiow about the asked the Friend. Of nothing particular 01113 things Are not always they seem and i had been through life taking people at face value before i went up against the Shaft. There is tie Case of or. Jackson to Begir if it was or. Jackson i feel Jackson lives on the third floor and he starts for business about an hour ahead of me so that i Don t see much of him. I never wanted to a a matter of fact because whenever i looked at him i seemed to realize what a vile and abject wretch i was and How Pirttle valid excuse i had for living. That i sri t a. Comfortable feeling you know. I Don t know what it was about him in particular that made me feel that it was his general effect. T Nuese. I m pretty certain however that his Little Side whiskers and his Blac gloves had a Good Deal to do with it. He s just the silliest talker too. Lays a lot of Stres is on his is smile is simply ineffable. Well was parting my hair quietly and peace ably one morning last week when 1 heard door slam tip above and Al most immediately through the Shaft came a blighting Stream of anathema. T would closed the window immediately Only i was curious to know what it was All about. Pretty soon somebody who was feeling the same about female is it. Henry yelled Back. I be Cut half my face All 44 i believe you re re marked the voice. Then Henry broke lease again. It appeared from Wiat he said he Laid the to the banging of the door As immediate cause and that he considered that action and Crim Inal Vonjj possible of perpetration by person of a Low order of intelligence. Be used Tome Fine Vig Orous unix language in his characterisation at this sort of thoughtlessness and few lines Mere on the general course Hama in wanted to know if Jet it must have been a great Shock 1o murmured the Friend sympathetically. It was but As i said or As i meant to Fay if 1 did t say it was t the worst i be got. There s a Sweet timid Little thing has been sitting on the Steps outside on a strip of red carpet with a smooth haired innocent looking boy All summer. 1 heard her swat her Little brother and then Tell her Mother it was because the Little boy had eaten All the cold boiled cabbage. When she hit the kid it sounded As if somebody had burst a paper bag. That 1 could have loved that girl myself if i had been free. I think they have got Little Willie of the red carpet cinched i heard the old Man and her Mother talk ing it Over in the air Shaft room the other night. It seems that Avillie is get Ting a week which was something of a Surprise to me. He does t look it. At the same time the old lady does t seem to think that will support live Una Darling in the style to which she has been accustomed. When i reflected on the present ridiculously Low Price of cabbage this was another staggered. The old Man thinks the proposition is All right the Way it stands and 1 think his head is level taking the family Point of from Willie s site of the Fence i think there s some sympathy coming to the bridegroom. Still you can t Al Vvs i m inf n Oil to nor no for girl As Jou know but if i was Willie could t sit on the same red carpet with me and hold Ruy hand through the Sweet summer should observed the Friend you would feel a certain delicacy about listening to this sort of i replied the Flat Dweller. It s of preside at times. There s lots of the talk to lat does t interest me a particle and i a Deal of time waiting in the Hope that something of importance will be said. I Don t care the Phippps have entertained the Princess of Wales has an aristocratic love of line animals. She greatly interested in All full blood Stock from the Brood of White i Rah Inas Given to her 20 years ago by the Queen to the Cream White horses which draw her to Windsor on Days of great state. One of the things which the Prin Cess Best about Suud Ringham her country Home is that there she has a. Kennel of dogs in which there Are Many of the finest of All the Best Breeds of England. And it is the daily Delight of the Princess to visit the Keu Uejo alone or in company with her husband to frolic with the dogs or carry them the Noonday meal of dainties for which they soon grow to watch. The plan of the Princess kennels is a Good one when their Are Sev eral select Breeds to be kept separate. There is a Large building fitted up with Small dog houses which arc in turn enclosed in different rooms each one of which is As big us an Ordinary barn so that each Breed has a Bam of its Koine s. Then All Are so arranged that they can be opened into each other and thrown into one. The dogs play about in their own separate apartments or barns in bad weather or run out into the Little Yards provided for them. But once a Day when the Princess them or when company comes to Sandring Ham then the doors Are All thrown open and the dog Rush out into the big Ligh u room which is known As the when their meal time is Over and they Are no longer upon inspection they return to their own separate kennels in answer to the Call which the hound master gives Are in separate barns once More. All of the dogs Are admirably trained and when they Are placed on Sale As becomes necessary once in awhile when their numbers becomes too great they Are eagerly bought by Hunters and clog seekers who wish something very intelligent in the dog species. The pugs of which there Are Many Are specially intelligent for that photograph Frame. How to make m Stirt Killay at 1 recent it a Marc la xxi Weime.

The is plainly made except for a few tucks and a neat bib and is big enough to keep a gown from All harm. As the Princess always wears a tight fitting Black dress in the House the apron strings an tied around As neat a Waist As can be found in England. These aprons by the Way Are part of the present which the Princess gets every year from the sales and Bazars which she opens. And they Are also from the fairs which she helps sup port by buying generously of their Stock and so adding not Only Patron age bit real Money also.
