1 Thoy woro standing in the corri
dor just without tho city clerk's
ollleo glowering at each othur liko
young roosters. Ono of tlnm war a
man who nau certainly seen ins
three score years, though perhaps
not tho tun additional. His hair was
po white a to maku a striking cou
trast with his old, black slouch hat.
llis board matched his hair in color
and was scraggly. His eyes woro
faded bluo ana beneath them tho
crow's feet morgod into wrinkles
about the pale thin lips. His back
was bent and ho leaned his weight
upon a strong, old fashioned, crook
ed end cane. The other was not a
whit younger than his vis-avis. Ilia
hair too was white with age, match
ing a luustacho that illy hid tho
signs of ago as shown by tho wrin
kled skin. He, too, carried a caue
upon which ho leaned heavily. Thoy
had evideutly begun a good natured
argument upon some subject. Per
haps it was politics. Perhaps it was
over tho now police rules. It may
have been as to whether the Civic
federation is a nonpartisan body.
Whatever tho subject tho debate
was no longer good natured. As
they glowered at each other tho first
was overheard to say:
"If you were not so old I'd striko
you to tho Uoor."
