The Man of Habit
It happened in a Fulton street res-
taurant that contains by actual coun*.
seventy-two tables. At 3 o'clock last
Wednesday afternoon five of these ta-
bles were occupied. That left sixty-
seven for the accommodation of late
arrivals. At a few minutes past 3 a
man entered. He was thin, had short
gray hair, a stubby gray mustache
and stony, staring blue eyes. He
came in at the south end of the room,
walked stolidly past the sixty-seven
empty tables and the four that were
occupied by solitary diners and sat
down in the end chair of the seventy-
second table, at which a man and a
woman were seated.
The couple were engaged in a con-
versation which, to all appearances,
was tender as well as confidential.
They stopped talking when the man
sat down and looked at him and at the
empty tables suggestively. But the
man's mind was not in a receptive
state. Subtle hints were lost on him.
Calmly he studied the bill of fare,
from which he finally selected a meal
of clam cocktail, sirloin steak and
coffee. The woman in the case looked
"Is there no remedy?" she said.
None short of actual murder," re-
plied her companion.
"t'nder the circumstances we would
be Justified in that." said she. "Any
jury in the land would acquit us."
"We might move," she suggested a
"No." said the man; "let's hang on
and see what he does."
"He" apparently bad no intention
of moving. When his luncheon was
served he ate it slowly. Presently
the man and woman went away. Af-
ter their .departure curiosity got the
better of the man at an adjoining ta-
bl who had watched the proceeding
"I am going to find out." he said,
"what that white-livered pelican
meant by freezing that couple out."
In slightly modified terms he put
the question to the solemn diner.
"Why," said the "pelican." "1 didn't
mean anything by it. This is my ta-
ble. I've eaten luncheon at this ta-
ble every weekday for the last fifteen
years. You don't suppose, do you.

The recent renewal of discussion of
the Grand Trunk Pacific project for a
second railroad across the Dominion
of Canada reminded a railroad man
the other day of this story of Marcus
He made a survey of the route
which the new road proposes to follow
when the Canadian Pacific was pro-
jected. The party under Smith was
running lines one sleepy Indian sum-
mer day on the headwaters of the Sas-
katchewan river. When he wanted to
take a sight of the rear flag he dis-
covered that it was being held in line.
All sorts of signals were tried, but the
attention of the flagman could not be
Finally Smith Jumped into a buck-
board and drove back over the line.
Presently the. others of the party
heard half a dozen rev dver shots.
Then Smith came back alone and
with never n word of explanation.
Hours passed, but the flagman did
not appear. They made camp; a teat '
for the men, and one apart from I'
for Marcus Smith. The surveyor!
