McMurray family of snt a V3»k ago Sunday Mrs. B. B. CeciJ. Life is a queer panorama. The first few years of a man's life lie is fondled and carressed by the ladies of the neighborhood. This at a time when he does not enjoy it and would rather be left alone. Later on as a young man he spends all his time and every cent he can rake up on the girls. This spasm ends by one of them taking him for better or worse. In middle age he does some thinking, gets busy and generally accumulates enough to pay off the mortgage on his home and send the kids to school, where they learn to play football. In old age he realizes the opportunities he missed and finds himself with a mind full of experience and a body full of rheumatism. He spends his days thinking it over, and his nights waiting for his wife to get home from a bridge party. Truly, man that is born of woman is small potatoes and few in a hill. The dry goods merchant accumulates a small fortune, but spends it all trying to regain his health after a life of worry. . ' The clothing man has the easy job. He is never overworked, just conversation and sn reading the baloney. He does more talk- £g selling a suit than the attorney does winning a $5,000 damage suit. The shoe man has the lowest position in merchandising. He is at your feet Ite- t?nine to your tale of woe about corns and bun ons At 6 o'clock he looks like the rel- life.
