PAGE EIGHT_ .4LCiOKA Urffctt DES MOINES. AtOONA ,^.^.^-^^^Ai.^^j.L. . ..Ir^^M^ Laughing Around the World With 1RV1N & COBB The Matrimonial Shopper By IfcVINS. COBB A YOUNG Scotchman, methodic*!, painstaking, and sincere, as so muiy of hid race are, bad been « bachelor of long standing. Since to this country he had Saved his mon*y until now he felt he Wa* qualified properly to support a domestic establishment. One day " ^Tve about decided to get married," he said. "In fact, I'm looking wound now for a wife." "Where are you looking?" asked his friend. "Ill tell you," said the Scot. "It's my belief that .the girls who work as clerks in the big department stores here in New York are mighty fine types. As a rule, they are well-dressed and tidy and good looking and have nice ways. They must be self-reliant or they wouldn t be «?"»-king. They have to be intelligent or they couldn't hold their jobs. They know how to make a dollar go a long distance or they couldn't dress as well as they do on th« modest wages most of them get. "My notion is this: On pretext of wanting to buy something, I am going to tour the big shops until I see a girl behind a counter who seems to fill my requirements. Then I'm going to find out her name and make private inquiries as to her character and disposition, and it she answers all the requirements I'll secure an introduction to her and if she seems to like me I'm going to ask her to marry me." Six months went by. The cautious Scot and the man to whom he had confided his plan of campaign met «gain, The latter thought his friend looked rather careworn and unhappy. "How are you getting along:?" "Well," said the Scot, "I'm a married man, if that's what you mean." "Well, did you follow the scheme you had in mind—I mean the one you told me about the last time I saw you?" "Yes. I married a Rirl that worked at Macy's." "Congratulations. How's everything getting along?" The Scot fetched a small.siph. "Sometimes," he said, "I can't help thinking that maybe I might have done better at Gimbel's." (American News Features, Inc.)
