tho "waves" are rolling delightfully
over the souls of sonic of the boys,
and this is about as it should be, and
sofortb;but concerning bangs, there
is a certain eraziness against which it
may be well to warn young men in
time. Not many years ago in the
State of Arkansas, a line looking young
mini sit od on tho scatl'old, ready and
willing to expiate, Joy boomed in his
eyes, but the spectacle of such a nice
young man standing on Mich a terri
bly ragged edge of eternity, brought
sobs from tho spectators, and when
the shcriir, a noble "Arkansaw" gentle
man, lull of sympathy, said, "Have
ycr ennything to say afore I lire ye in
to eternity?" Wails went forth up
on the welkin. Tho culprit arose1, and
with a voice to which the great throbs
of joy that stirred his waist-coat gave a
charming cadence, ho replied: "I
wish to say a few'words upon the sub
ject of bangs. There was a' time when
I disliked them when I agreed that,
while bangs could not make a sweet
girl look any sweeter, they niado sour
girls look sweeter than they really
were, and that they were therefore
snares and delusions, lint I have
changed my mind. I lntvo learned to
beam loudly on bangs. Oh, they are
associated with the sweetest memory
of my existence, They cluster beau
tifully about the glorious recollection
of the vengenee I wreaked on the
man that jumped my claim. I gave
him throe bangs t wo through the back
of bis old waistcoat ' and one through
the basement of his rivetted overalls.
