And the m arital happiness of ethers is a matter of wonder and inquiry on the part of matrimonial parties who have missed it. · The Vanners--Rose and John--had been married two years and had lived at a hotel all of that period except the weeks devoted to honeymoon travel. They were happy, and this state in a hotel is unusual with married pairs for any considerable period. After Mrs. Vanner'swomen friends had dismissed the matter among themselves without solution one of them made bold to ask her about it. "A man and a woman can be happy anywhere if they are in love with each other and if they are truthful-absolutely truthful--with each other," was Mrs. Vanner's explanation. Not that they prided themselves on their veracity, or paraded virtues. It just happened that they were such good pals that deceit had no place in their association. And while each before marriage, had been lively enough in a decent way, they were so well satisfied with each other that they were seldom apart, except as business called Vanner or auction bridge or some other .pastime engaged Mrs. Vanner. The holidays were approaching. The Vanners were dining together at the hotel as usual when Mrs. Vanner asked: "Have you any plan for Christmas eve?" "Not a plan," Vanner replied. "Want tickets for the theater?" "No. We go to the theater all the time." "Well, make your own plan." "If you are keen for some mutual enjoyment, make one yourself. Think up something. But if you are not, I've an idea I should like to play bridge that evening if you could find something congenial!" "The idea suggests one to me. Friends at the Sojourners' club have been trying for weeks to get me into Reducing D«er Herd Allegan, Dec. 6--Without benefit of tracking snow, hunters had plenty of shooting but few kills in the early Total Michigan 'coon take last year was 34,645,-according to conservation department records. Hunters, outnumbering trappers by three days o£ Michigan's first strictly ant-j to one, captured more than 30,000 of lerless deer season, which ended Wednesday. By the time the first 300 of the 500 license lottery winners had checked in at the conservation department station at Dunningville, 18 antlerless deer had been sealed with special seals and checked out. The kill was equally divided at six adult does, six female fawna and six male fawns. At the same time, three antlered bucks were killed illegally. The hunt extended over 20,000 acres, ill posted, in the central part of the county. Its object is the re- the total in their six weeks season. The trapping season is limited to four weeks in the area north of Clare, and to two weeks in the southern half of the lower peninsula. There is no open raccoon season north of the straits. Among the best ringtail areas in the state are Livingston, Sanilac, Allegan, Genesee, Calhoun, Berrien, Eaton and Kent counties. · Fish Licenses And Digests For 194!

Needs Encouragement An applicant for a job as junior clerk gave a neighboring firm as reference, so the prospective employer got on the phone to them. "Oh{ young Jones?" came the reply.

They are all 'alones* and live at the dub. I think I can make a date for Christmas eve with them." "But you wouldn't go into the game as a regular thing, dear?" "Oh, no!" "Isn't poker a gambling game?" "No more a gambling game than bridge, Rose." "Shall you play late?" "I shall probably be home by midnight." "Well, we shall play but four rubbers. No doubt I'll be in bed and asleep when you come in. Just go to your room, and we'll see which of us wishes 'A Merry Christmas* first in the morning." And so it was planned. The Vanners bad dinner together at the hotel, as usual. Then Vanner went off to the Sojourners' club, and Mrs. j Vanner started to drum up her trio f of bridge devotees. But her plan did not carry. One of the women was suddenly called out of town, and another became just ill enough to eliminate the game. Mrs. Vanner finished a novel she was reading and -went to bed. She was always a sound sleeper until very early in the morning. The Sojourners' club bunch were amazed at Vanner's luck at poker. At midnight he had most of the chips, and in decency he had to play on. At 4 a. m. he insisted upon cashing in and started -wearily for his hotel. He wished there might be some way to keep the knowledge of this innocent delinquency from Mrs. Vanner. He got to his room in the hotel safely. Apparently Mrs. Vanner was slumbering peacefully in her room. He shed his coat and vest and was at work on bis collar when he saw Mrs. Valuer at his door with a wrap over her night robe. "Merry Christmas!" she cried. "Merry Christmas, dear!" he responded. · The chimes of a neighboring cathedral nag out. foretelling the early Christmas service.
