GET UP I

Oet up! 0t up!" as ho passed each door
"Oat up at once for I'll call no more!"

"Yes. In a minute." we'd wake to say

We'd nM fall back where the bed was warm
In the place which fitted each youthful form
And ga .o Mlsep till thero cams a hhout:
"Oet up or I'll come and pull you out!"
He'd stand at the foot of the stairs and call:
"(lot up! You nloopy heads one and all!
Your mother's boon down for an hour or two
Tho day Is hero and thero's work to do.
There'll bo trouble up there If you don't Jump
And promptly begin to stir aboutl"
Then sumutimes he'd como with a rush and
The covers away and banish sleep.

And the mornings of earthly life are gone
And wo who woro children 60 long ago

walteil 30 minute for a bus nnd when ho came
ho said "I was duo down town 10 minutes ago."

riftor him: but If hn did or not. wo don't know
but If a Jitney driver violated the law they
would have had all the pork's force aftr him
und had a big wrlteup In tho paper nbout him.
bo you eo there Is no law. Monoy is law ln
Tulsa arid there is another good thing about the
Jitney driver you ran stand on your front
porch and they will stop right at your door you
don't have to walk out in tho road and you
don t havo to hold your head Just so to keep
from having a otook Jorked in your nock and
another thing the Jitney boys don't bawl you
out bocauso you haven't got the money ready
to pav your fare before ynu get on the Jitney.
And I have heard the busmen talk cross to a

Dorotliy Fnllon's Visits Deprcas
Tho elder Mr. Fallon was atlll
away and Nolllo was constantly ln
.Mr. tloorgo's office to her dellgnt.
Sho never analyzed this feeling but
felt a happy contentment when near
him. even when Miss Jones sat be-
sldn him taking hla mora Important
dictation whllo work of less value
was nsslcnod to her.Oftcn sho would
glance up nnd gazo for a moment on
her employer's profile and say to
"Thero Is no one like him no
one in tho whole world."
But Nellie's calm happiness was
occasionally Interrupted although
she scarcely realized it never gavo
It name. On tho days when Miss
Dorothy visited tho office and In
her cousinly way took possession of
Mr. George nnd Joked with him
often going to lunch or carrying him
off earlier than usual becauso of
some tmgagoment sho had made for
him Nellie felt a depression that
iho tried ln vain to shake off.
Miss Dorothy was always kind
never fnllod to speak pleasantly to
her at times stopping to chat a mo-
ment beside her desk. Nellie ad-
mired the gay light-hearted girl Im-
mensely. Her lovely clothes so sim-
ply cut yet bo stylish and becoming
caused her no envy but a desire to
dress appropriately as Cora had
taught her and as sho was sure
Miss Dorothy always did. She could
not help overhearing tho plana for
whutevor they wero going to do and
noticed that Miss Dorothy was al-
ways dressed for the occasion
whether It was a yachting trip or a
"Sho knows how It Isn't all tho
money." Nellie said to horsolf. Then
ono day sho learned from something
that was said that Miss Dorothy do-
Blgned hor own clothes her dress-
maker simply carrying out her ldeos.
"I was sure ehe had something to do
with her clothes" she told Miss
Jones after Dorothy left "They look
"Yos they oxprcBs hor Individual-
ity. But It takes a great deal of time
ami thought to dres distinctively.
Wo working womon don't have time
to think very much of clothes be-
yond being neat."
"I'm going to try to learn what
suits mo. too" Nellie decided.
Hint-ding Always Is Dangerous.
A man who marries too suddenly on a divorce
may find that a revocation leaves him in the
status of blgnmy Philadelphia Record.

tauso of tho trad'Umi that tho firm is the place
w 'e wmen'B work .3 uover done Boston
"Even If I can't havo lovely things
llko aim does."
Nelllo's Interest ln Miss Dorothy
howevor did not lessen tho depres-
sion alio melt after her visits to the
office. Sho was unnoyed won-
dered she felt as she did: as if some-
thing unpleasant had happened
something affecting her adversely.
"Aren't you feeling well?" Miss
Jones asked one day after Dorothy
had carried her cousin away despite
his protests. He had declared ho
couldn't go but sho had coXxetl until
he had laughingly called her a teazo
and then given in
"Yos why.?" .elllo answered.
"Yovi lotlked so sorlous and I
spoke to you twlco before you an-
"Excusa me I am aorry."
Miss Jones looked keenly at Nellie.
"Not thinking of young Home
woro you?" sho asked with a smile.
"Mercy no! Why ahould I think of
"I'm very much mistaken If he
doesn't thing often of you. He's a
nice boy Nellie."
"He's all right to run around
with." Nellie's answer was so care-
lessly Indifferent that Miss Jones
was satisfied alio cared nothing for
Donald Home Bavo as a friend.
Nellio was a queer girl nevor showed
any Interest in tho boys nnd young
mon ns other girls in her position
usually did; never talked of them.
Miss Jones admired this trait In
tho young girl although she felt It
peculiar. Nelllo was bo full of fun.
so bright bo sure to ba attractive
to toh other sex that hor Indiffer-
ence seemed almost unnatural.
"I've nover had much use for
mon" eho said when Miss Jones
laughingly spoke of her Indifference.
"You wouldn't cither It you had
lived ln Miss Carter's boarding house
at tho Corners and heard those trav-
eling mon talk. I learned too much
about them how they get girls to
do foolish things then laugh ut
them afterward. It was a long time
ago. but I've never forgotten ono
word they eaid or how they used to
brag about what they could do with
the girls they met. It makes mo sick
every tlmo i think of It. They put
me wise all right."
"Porhaps they did you a service
Nellie" Miss Jones answered "but
must mustn't think all mon are bad.
Thero aro many fine conscientious
men In tho world "
"Some perhaps" Nellie replied
her thoughts on Mr. Oeorge. He
was fine. Sho was sure ho was good.
Hut he was only one. Her opinion of
men In general had not changed.

sensations of being out ln tho rain
exsept the sensation of getting wet
but proberly If you aek your mother
to leevo you go out in a sprlnkel
she will think thcres no sents to It
and say no.
If you have eny doubt about wea-
ther or not its going to rain the
ferst thing to do is look up at the
sky and If theres no clouds thero
at all It would oven sound foolish to
mention to enybody that you don't
think its going to rain and if thoros
ony a few small size clouds moving
errouna In different places its still
a nice day but if its all dark and
fearse looking and you get hit ln
tho oyo by a drop of water won you
look up Its tlmo to take your um-
berella. Enuff rain Is a good thing es-
pecially for flowers and farmors.
wllo not enuff is bad and makes des-
rets and too much Is still wcr.so and
makes leeks and floods.
Its suro to rain sooner or later
If you only wato long enuff. the only
trubblo bolng that its libel to como
down wen you'd drather it would
stay up and vice vlrture.
