A courteous ethciency.
When the modern world is convulsed with the
application of energy to speed; when countless sta-
Te tisticians are employed by gigantic corporations to
ascertain how fast the average man can work with-
out lessening his productive power; when efficiency
er is beinmeasured in terms of "how slow' 'or "how
fast," what part has courtesy in our civilization?
econd We canont shift our world back to the days of
chivalry. Knights-errant and ladies walk no more,
while the doffed plume of the veiled face are gone
forever. Yet, after all, that was only formal cour-
ces of tesy. Courtesy still thrives although often uncul-

How far does courtesy go toward increasing a
man's ability to perform? Is courtesy a quality that
tends toward efficiency? The answer is unmistaka-

his threats of violence.
I wonder if you could help me out of a very deli-

do not care for and yet who fairly dotes on me.

ln L'How to Be Witty Tho' in Love"
It is presumed by this time that you have thor-
oughly mastered the two previous lessons before
proceeding with this one. This lesson is especially
useful in case your old girl has given you what is
known in vulgar parlance.as "the mitt." This fact,
however, will probably only add to your popularity
with the other girls sin'ce anything that looks cheap
or marked down will inevitably appeal to their in-
nate bargain-hinting instinct.
Accordingly you remark to the new object of
your affections, "Yes, it's all off between Mary and
me. She returned to me all the presents I have
given her." Your subtle application of the term
"poor" to Mary 'implies that Mary is the real loser
and is more to be pitied than censored. .The young
lady, feigning a casual,manner in order to conceal.
her breathless interest, asks, "And what did you dIo
then ?" Assuming n tone of righteous anger (a sort
of Father-];-cannot-tell-a-lie Mflection) you reply,
"Why, I sent her back six boxes. of face powder
as I figured that I tad taken that much home vyith
me on my coat."
The girl perceives at once that you are one to
be trusted, a man who would not even steal a kiss
without returning it, and at the saine time it clearly
shows that you have a military spirit since you are
not afraid of the smell of powder.
