cannot possibly give such an affair as you intend giving for such a sum as that Know it admitted his wife frankly Then what under the high canopy of heaven are you going to do about it asked the colonel in surprise Wail and see But will not have a mountain of bills pouring down upon me lilo an ava math manago thtmrlcrBut such an entertainment would WHERE IN THE DEUCE IS ALL THE MONEY COMING FROM fairly bankrupt me cried her husband Just listen to this the colonel ad justed his goldrimmed glasses to the bridge of his aquiline nose and read the following ornate announcement written in the effusive style of semi rural newspaper reporting Elegant and beautifully engraved invitations have been sent out to a large number of our most distinguished citi zens by Col and Mrs MacDermot Wash burn for a Fancy Dress at their tasty home on Prospect avenue We learn that this event will be quite the most elaborate and recherche affair our little city has ever witnessed and few are as capable of delightfully and elegantly tertaining as our esteemed and respect ed citizen the colonel and his wife The supper is to be furnished by a leading caterer from the city while a band of musicians will be in attendance The occasion will doubtless prove an event long to be remembered in our so cial can this be done for the ridiculously small sum you have named promise not to call on you for any more money than you have already given me answered his wife reassur will not be forthcoming if you do said the colonel with the posi tiveness of a deepset conviction High time they were beginning to en

more money said his wife calmly Then who is to pay for all this style demanded Col Washburn still unconvinced Nobody sweetly replied his wife with a most provoking air of mystery Now just let me manage this affair In my own particular way and you shall see how nicely It can be done The list of invitations hail been a lengthy one and the numerous expected guests were in a ferment of unrest as to what they should wear and what roles they should personate Claims of priority of intention regarding these characters became a delicate point to settleIt in the midst of this chaotic state of societys mind that a letter was delivered one evening at 102 Prospect avenue a letter heavily bordered In black and burdened with a black seal all suggestive of unhappy tidings There were several of Mrs Wash burns neighbors sitting with her at the time discussing the approaching fes tivities and ihe announcement came like a thunderbolt on a clear day in the midst of their laughter and merriment that a dearly beloved aunt of Mrs Wash burns had suddenly died in a distant cityAnd to think that it should occur most on the eve of my Fancy Dress bewailedMrs Washburn in the first out pour of her grief How distressing chimed in her friends with a fervor that left no specu lationastothesincerity of regret for the Fancy Dress if not for the deceased auntAnd I had determined to spare no expense to make it the event of the season Oh my poor poor aunt cried Mrs Washburn breaking down afresh Its too too bad chorused her friends sympathetically with thoughts of the Fancy Dress still uppermost in their minds One of the ladies delicately suggested that perhaps a little later the Fancy Dress might be given when the edge had worn off somewhat of her dear friends grief But Mrs Washburn shook her head disconsolately It would be like warmed over coffee she said mournfully Her friends admitted the truth of this No no It is a grievous and unexpected Affliction and must be borne as suchwith resignation and Mrs Washburn took refuge in her sal vol atile wnen nernelgifDors had offered what consolation they could all considerate ly withdrew leaving their hostess In tears while they went to spread the sor rowful tidings far and near after the reputed manner of their sex and when Cot Washburn reached home a little later he found the shutters closed and the house shrouded in a depressing gloom while its mistress was in the clusion of her own room do not remember to have heard you speak of an aunt living in New York City said her husband thoughtfully knew you had a cousin there young Baker with Bridges Co What a jewel of a boy he is cried Mrs Washburn enthusiastically He wrote a beautiful letter just as asked him to do But I didnt know you had an aunt living there persisted the colonel You dear stupid thing I dont know it either answered Mrs Washburn breaking into a guilty little laugh and drying her eyes She has helped me to payoff a large debt of social obligation though dont you The day following numerous cards were sent out bearing the announcement that on account of the death of a near relative the invitations issued by Col and Mrs MacDermot Washburn for the evening of the 24thhad been recalled MAKE ARMY MEN WONDER Endurance of Japanese Soldiers Is Al most Without Precedent They Never Tire The soldiers of Japan are not only among the most pugnacious but they are likewise the hardiest fighters in the world American officers who were with the relief expedition that marched to Peking in 1900 have not ceased to talk about the wonderful performance of tlil Japanese on that trip The HUe brown men were the admiration of all the for eigners Our own officers did not hesi tate to say that they were the best sol diers on the ground Their marvelous endurance complete discipline bravery and activity were commented on very widely The Japs seemed never to tire They set the pace for the column and it was as much as the balance of the allied troops could do to keep up with them At noonday they squatted on the ground took out their little packets of rice ate it and in 30 minutes were ready to press on The terrific heat of the fierce sun had apparently no effect on them At Peking they did gallant and splendid work The excellent discipline they played was in striking contrast with the reckless and uncontrolled work of the Russians The latter got clear beyond the control of their officers and Indulged in shocking cruelties On account of the showing of the two classes of troops in 1900 the Japs are pronounced favorites Hot Time
