A LESSON IN NERVE.
The Laundry Didnt Charge Fee flte
, . Ruinad 8hlrt. (
"When I came to open my buadl
of stuff sent borne from the lauadxr
this morning said tbe bachelor mas.
"I found In it, sent back washed, hot
sot Ironed, one abirt that bad pinnal
to It a ticket reading like tola:
" 'We are returning this shirt on ac
count of It not being tn a condittoa
to withstand ironing.
' Thia waa a new one to ma, bat
when I came to open np the shirt and
looked It over I didn't wonder thatl
they hadn't tried to iron It; one arm
was all but torn from its socket, and!
there was a bole punched through on
cuff, with a tear extending from thteJ
bole for an inch or two np the sleeve.
Th shirt waa sure not la condition for
ironing, but bow did it get sot
"I certainly never sent It to the lamvl
dry in that shape. I'd have had bard
work tearing the sleeve out of the
shoulder tbe way this one waa torn,
and I couldn't have mad that bole
in the cuff without some sort of al
sharp and big punch. ' Clearly thai
shirt bsd been torn and mangled tn!
that manner by being caught la the
laundry machinery, and so I wrapped,
It up in a neat little bundle and tooki
It over to the laundry office. Intending
to make a claim for the value of iti
I spread the shirt out on the coon ten
and called the clerk's attention to It
and told him that I Couldn't have ton
the shirt In that manner; It must have
been done In the laundry, and how
about it? J
" 'Well,' aald tbe clerk, we made a
charge for it'
"As tbe full significance of this came.
upon me they had torn my shirt n&
to pieces, but they didn't make any
charge for It! I staggered back, end
I kept on staggering that way until I
ha1? got out of the door. ,
"I shall never make any further
claim . for the shirt I got back far
more than its value In that lesson ba
clear, cold nerve." New York Sua.
An Old Song.
From tbe hieroglyphics on an Egyp
tian tomb comes the following song;
almost identical with one sung by the
Egyptian peasants considerably over
3,000 years later than this was written:

O oxen I
Tread y out for yourselves.

, The middle class woman In England
now generally affects to be superior
to the social position she occupies; she
endeavors to dress, live and act tip to
the highest standard she has adopted
as her own. This attitude and its at
tendant circumstances eventually In
duce the ordinary middle class husband
to regard her as socially superior to
himself. . In time, from this cause, he
