Dave at once dlecovered, this was
merely a Action. Aside from a few
accommodating lumps near the door
the coal had to be shoveled. Then
Dave had to drive to an address that
waa given him, shovel the coal down
a chute located In the most Inacces-
sible position the premises afforded,
and return to the coalyard, where the
young man with the cotlar would face-
tiously Inquire whether Mrs. Blank

or If he had been waiting for a change
In the weather.
Hla work and supper were over by
seven o'clock each evening, and now
waa tha opportunity for him to begin
the schooling for which he had left
the ranch. But ha developed a sud-
den disinclination to make the start;
ha waa tired In the evening, and he
found It much more to hla liking to
stroll downtown, smoke - cigarettes on
the street comers, or engage In an
occasional game of pool. In this way
the weeks went by, and when his
month with Metford waa up he had
neglected to And another position, so
he continued where he was. He was
being gradually and unconsciously
submerged In an Inertia which, how-
ever much It might hate Its present
aurroundlnga, had not the spirit to
■eek a more favorable environment.
So the fall and winter drifted along;
Dave had made few acquaintances and
no friends, If we except Conward,
whom he frequently met In the pool-
rooms and for whom he had developed
a sort of attachment.
One Saturday evening, aa Dave was
on hla way to their accustomed resort,
he fell In with Conward on the atreet.
“Hello, old man 1" said Conward
cheerily. “I was Juet looking for you.

tvnrd led. Dave had been I here be-

seats In the house.
It waa an entirely new experience.
From the upper gallery the actors
and actresses nlwnya seemed more or
less Impersonal and abstract, but here
they were living, palpitating human
beings, almost within hand roaeh, eer-
tnlnly within eye reach. Dave found
himself regarding the young womnn
immediately before him; all In white

spotlight; then suddenly she was In
orange, and pink, and purple, and
mauve, and back again In white. And
although she performed the various
steps with Balling abandon tharo waa
In her dress and rosnnor a modesty
which fascinated the boy with a iub-
tlety which a more reckless appear-
ance would have at once defeated.
And then Dave looked In her face.
It was a pretty face, notwithstanding
Ita grease paint, and It smiled right
Into hla eyes. Hla heart thumped be-
tween hla shoulders as though It would
drive all the air from his lungs. She
smiled at him—for him I Now -they
were away agalu; there were gyra-
tions about the stage.
Then there was a endden break-
away In the dance, and the girl dis-
appeared behind a forest. Dave sup-
posed she had gone to rest; dancing
like thaft must be hard on the wind.
He found little to Interest him now In
what waa going on on the stage. It
seemed rather foolish. He wished the
girl behind the foreet would come
down and rest there. Then she could
see the show herself. Then she covld

I he looked at Conward and saw him
Bulling too. And then he felt a very
distressing uncertainty, which brought
the color slowly to his face. He re-
solved to say nothing, but wntch. And
hla observations convinced him that
the smiles had been for Conward, not
for him. And then he lost Interest In
They hustled Into their overcoats to
the playing of the national anthem,
"Hurry!" said Conward. "Let’s get
out quick I Ain’t she some dame?
There—through the side exit—the
stage door Is that way. She promised
to have her chum with her. They’ll
be waiting If we don’t hurry."
Conward steered him to the stage
entrance, where a little group was al-
ready congregated. In a moment ithe
girl appeared, handsomely dressed In
fura. With her was another girl, slao
from the chorus, but Dave could not
recall her part. Ho waa suddenly
aware of being Introduced.
"This Is my friend Belton,” Con-
ward was saying.
Dave was about to correct him when
Conward managed to whisper:
"Whist I Your stage name. Mine's
Edward. Don’t forget."
Conward took the Arst girl by the
arm, and Dave found himself follow-
ing rapidly with the other. They cut
through certain Bide streets, up a stair-
way. and Into a dark hall. A door
opened. Conward pressed a button,
I and they found themselves In a small
but comfortably furnished room—evi-
dently bachelor apartments.
The girls threw off their wraps and
sauntered about the place, while Con-
ward started a gas grate and put some
water to boll.
"Sorry I’ve nothing for you to eat,"
he said, “but I’ve some good medicine
for the thirst."
“Eating's poor business when there s
a thirst to be quenched," said one of
the girls with a yawn. "And, believe
me. I’ve a long one.”
The glasses were Ailed and raised.
“Ho!" said Conward.
“Here’* looking 1" said one of the
Dave hesitated, but tha other girl
clinked her glass against his. “Here’s
looking at you," she said, and she ap-
peared to lay special emphasis on the
last two words. Certainly her eyes
were on Dnve’s ns she raised her glass
to her Ups. And under the spell of
those eyes he raised his glass and
drained It. .
Other glasses wer« Ailed and
drained. The three were chattering
away, but Dave was but vaguely con-
scious of their talk and could weave
no connected meaning Into It. His
head was butxlng with a pleasant,
dreamy sensation. A very grateful
warmth nurronnded him, and with It
came ■ disposition to go to sleep. He
probably would have gone to sleep had
his eye not fallen on a picture on the
wall. It was a picture of a girl point-
ing her Anger nt him. . . • No girl
could point her Anger at him. He
arose und made a lunge across the
room. He missed her, and with diffi-
culty relraced his steps to the table
to make a fresh start.
“She’s rankin' fun of me," he said,
"an' I (Jon’t stand for that. Nobody
can do that with me. Nobody—seel
I don’t 'low It."
! “Oh, you don’t?" tnughod one of the
girls, running Into n corner nntl point-
ing her linger nt him. “You don’t?"
He turned his attention to her,
steadying ldinsolf very carefully be-
fore he attempted on advance. Then,
with wido-stretchcd arms, he bore
down cuutlously upon her. When lie
had her nlmost within roach aim dnrt-

attempted a sudden change In direc-
tion, which ended disastrously, and lie
found himself very much sprawled out
upon tho Uoor. He wns nware of
laughter, but what enred he? lie was
disposed to sleep. Whnt better place
to sleep than this? What hotter time
to sleep than tills? In n moment lie
was lost to all consciousness. . . .
It was Inter In the night when he
felt himself being dragged Inin a sit-
ting posture. “Where am 1?’’ he said,

A aense of disgrace-waa already upon
hlin. Then he suddenly turned In an-
ger on Conward. “You put this up on
me," he cried. "You made e fool of
me. I've e mind to bash your skull lo
"Don't be silly," Conward retorted.
"I didn’t enjoy It any more than you
did—Introducing you an my friend,

It would put you to sleep."
“Nellher did I," said Dave.
“Well, the next thing is to get you

Dave started for the door, but hla

a prodigious thirst, which he slaked
at the water pitcher. It was the prac-
tice of Metford’s gang to select one of
their number to care for all the horses

In consequence of this custom the
room waa still full of snoring sleepers
and the air was very close and foul.

cause he could think of no more spe-
cific expression to suit hls feelings,
and because expression of any kind
brought a sort of relief, he kept on
repeating the word, "Fool I fool I
fool I" And as hls self-condemnation
gradually won him back to a sense of
perspective he became aware of the
danger of hls position. He had left
hls ranch home to better himself, to
learn things, to rise to be somebody.
He had worked harder than ever be-
fore, at more disagreeable employ-
ment; he had lived In conditions that
were almost nauseating—and what
had he learned? That you can’t beat
a card man at hls own game, price
sixty dollars, and that the gallery
seats are cheaper and sometimes safer
than the orchestra.
Then all of a sudden he thought of
Reente. He had not thought of her
much of late; he had been so busy
In the days and so tired at nights that
he had not thought of her much. Now
she burst upon him again with all that
beauty and chnrm which had so mag-
netized him In those glad, golden days,
and the frank cleanness of her girl-
hood made him disgusted and
ashamed. It was to At himself for her
that he had come to town, aud what
eort of mess was he making of It?
He was going down Instead of up. He
had squandered hla little money, and
now he wns squandering hls life. Ha
had been drunk. . . .
Dave's nature was one In which
emotions were accelerated with their
own Intensity. And the sudden man-
ner In which Heenle had now Invaded
hls consciousness Intensified the black-
ness In which he was submerged, as
lightning darkens the storm. . . .
lie saw her on that halt night, with
the moonlight wooing her white face,
until hls own body had eclipsed It In
a warmer passion, and he heard her
words. "I know you are true and
clean." . . .
True und clean. "Yes, thnnk Ood,
I niu still thntl" he cried, springing
suddenly to hts feet and commencing
to dress. 'Tve been sputtered, but
nothing that won’t wash off. Per-

thought struck him—“perhaps It wns
the luckiest thing In tho world that
I tho booze did put me out last night.

Recently John, the young son of
thp pastor of the Brightwood Meth-
odist church, was sick. Hts futher
took him to see Dr. W. Cj Engle. The
doctor wns giving him a thorough
examination to determine hls aliment.
In the examination he said: "John',
I am going to see whether you have
a liver. Huve you a liver, John?”
The boy replied: "Not yet; I will
have one after dinner."
“After dinner,” said the doctor.
“How Is that, John?"
“Well," snld John, “mother Is cook-
ing nn old hen for dinner, and I am
going to eat her liver.”—Indianapolis
