THE WAY OFsIT IN NEW YORK
New York, Dec. 10, Like many
another story of New York life, the
most remarkable part of the follow
ing tale is that it is only one of many
instances of the same sort.
Two men prominent in the man
agement of a big industrial concern
which has its headquarters in Buf
falo went to attend a directors' meet
ing. Some matter came up concern

York, and these two men, both being
New Yorkers, were appointed a com
mittee to take up the matter and re
port at a subsequent meeting.
Going back to New York, the two
got into conversation as to where

business. Said A to B:
"I'd be glad if we could fix up the
first meeting for an evening. I'm
rushed to .death all day, at my office,

"All right," replied B, "that will
suit me better, too. "Where will we
"I live at the Hotel Blank," said A,
naming an uptown family hotel.
"Would it be convenient for you to
drop in there?"
"It wouldn't be so terribly incon

It developed that both men, and
their families, had lived in the hotel
named-for over a year.

any time, in the lobby of the hotel,
they would have bowed politely, but
it never would have occirred to
either of them to give a thoiight to
whether the other might be a fellow
tenant, still less to make any inquiry
along that line. It's not the custom. i

janitors; strike may not be
The comforting news that the
threatened strike of janitors may not

McWatters of the Chicago Flat Jani
tors' Union, who stated that more
than 600 agreements, some of them
representing a strhlg o buildings,
have been signed, and 2,000 more are
