IOn the Other Hand-
"Yes," says the old guard, "the floor
in the Union isn't what it's cracked
up to be."

Flo Ziegfeld has boosted his prices
to $2.50 for all downstairs seats while
the Follies are on the road. Well,

Said Newlywed, "I say, dear one!
Your poundcake weighs almost a ton;
It's just like lead and mighty tough;
You didn't pound it quite enough!"
"And when this practice you shall get,
You will become more skillful yet,
Until you very soon can make,"
He said, "A first rate batter cake."
A stack of pancakes then with pride
She brought to him and one he tried,
Then whispered, "Tell me truly, Nan,
Is this the pancake or the pan?"
A plate of fried cakes then came in,
He smacked his lips and with a grin
Bit into one. His smile then died;
He said, "They're cakes, my dear, but
they ain't fried."

Speaking of hard luck, a friend of
ours who was in the marine corps,
was the recipient of a visit by a gent
from the recruiting station the other

orable discharge and eight months
back pay. Too bad, wasn't it?
How to swim
And every summer
They are taught
They never learn
How to swim
I wonder why?
An ad in the Wash. Post is addressed
"To the Wives of Those Who Drink."

He was not only startled bu't shocked.
When he was a block away he finally

MERCIER TO VISIT U. S. SOON
Brussels, Aug. 8.-Details of King

plete swing of the country and will be
accompanied by his son, Prince Leo-
Cardinal Mercier will start for
America on Sept. 4, and will probably

intends to visit Montreal and Quebec.
