The committee composed of Mrs. J. R. chairman, Mrs. Pease and Mrs. C. E Talk It "TPHIS is primarily a woman's department where we hold forth, but once in awhile it does devolve upon us to telephone some masculine member of society, about this thing or that. And sometimes we have to :all them at their homes. And if they happen not to be there, and their wjves answer, and our feminine voice asks to speak to the man of the house, how we get frozen! We've never yet had a wife be out and out impolite to us, but her voice fairly drips icicles. That Is, It drips icicles until we say, "This is The Herald. Will you please have him call and ask for So-and-So when he comes in?" Whereupon, assured that we are not a female with evil designs upon her John, she melts .and is sweet as can be in promising to deliver the message. It's true, sisters. There's not a one of you who doesn't react the same way, no matter how staid and faithful your John may be. f, Speaking of love, here's a definition: "When you loved people you could laugh with them and even at them, very tenderly; a party wasn't a party unless they were there, and if they were there and no one else, It was still a party; you wanted to remind them about dry shoes and to take care of them." We cannot tell you who wrote that, because we'd never heard the name before and we've for- [otten. H We had a. great surprise last week. We walked into our hairdresser's shop, and there in a ' chair sat Baby Peggy. Yes, she did. It was no figment of our imagination. We recognized her instantly by her round black eyes under their straight black bang, and her round pursed-up mouth. She wa* all dressed up in a red plaid bolero dress, dec- ; orated according to her own lights with a broad red ribbon sash that dangled gloriously down behind! X There's an exciting document on our bulletin board up here in the editorial office. It is the vacation schedule. Upon It arc all our names, and all the weeks of summer, and the assignments of each to each. Glorious food for thought. One by one we stand before it with a far-away look in our eyes and a smile of anticipatory pleasure on our lips. We all plan to scatter to the four winds. Our own scattering, of course, will be to New England. Our vacation is rather far away, but already we have sent off a flock of joyous letters, some to Spain and other distant places begging them to be home by then, others to Nantucket and so on, And we've called the Wabash station to ask about tickets (with many weeks to aass, mind you), and looked over our baggage, particularly a delectable little new fitted case with all sorts of bottles and gadgets inside. The very thought of it lifts our morale, or whatever great content docs to one's morale. « L. B.
