AND WHAT FOLLOWED
When the hot spell la July cania,
John insisted that I go to the shore
ror two weeks. I demurred, not be?
cause I didn't want to go?1 was so
tired of my own table that I would
have gone anywhere?but because I
didn't like to leave Joan to Maltsxy's
tender mercies, knowing Mallssy as I
"I don't see how you could get
"Oh. Mallssy -will look after me,"
said John easily.
"No. she won't." I protested. "If she
would, going away would be simple."
[ knew that Mallssy needed supervi?
sion to make her of any earthly use.
'If I take a vacation, Mallssy will
take one: then who will get your
meals and make up your bed and
?lean your tub?"
"I will." Insisted John, stoutly. "If
Mallssy goes off. You run on to the
shore, snd forget Mallssy for two
weeks. She's getting on your nerves."
John persuaded me Into thinking
that it was my duty to go. It was a
fact that I was completely flattened
jut by the heat. When I went to
market, my brain refused to take in
:he relative merits of potatoes and
Joans, peas and spinach. I shut my
ffye. poked my finger at a vegetable,
>.nd took it. It saved planning.
Hefore I left I had a heart-to-heart
alk with Mallssy. I told her I was
Eolng away snd I wanted her to take
;ood care of Mr. Green In my ab?
sence. She web to see that his mel?
ons were ripe, that his coffee cooked
Ifteen minutes, that his toast was
firoperly browned, that his mattress
was turned every day. and pay heed
:o -various other minute directions,
such as a loving wife naturally thinks
5f In connection with her husband's
SomfOTt. Malissy listened respectful
y and gave me glib assurances that
she would look after Mr. Green, "same
is if I wuz peekin' ovah huh shoul
ler." I pretended to believe her and
ive parted amicably, though I felt a
John put me on the train one siz
tllng afternoon. If my ticket hadn't
tees paid for. I should have turned
Jack. I felt ko guilty leaving John in
;ueh heat with only an Irresponsible
jepress to look after him.
The Bhore was delightfully cool avid
:he "inn" had an excellent table.
For nine days I arnjoyed the luxury
>f loafing. I got sun-burned and lat.
ind, on the tenth day. panicky. I
HMM feel in John's letters something
wrong, though they were pointedly
ulissifnl Without letting him into
the n< cret, I packed my trunk and
I let myself Into a deserted apart?
ment The rooms had a peculiar,
gray 1. ok. When I went over to my
dressing table, I uaw that the dust
on it was thick enough to hide the
color of the furniture. John's bed had
the spread carefully drawn up over
I wo very soiled and wrinkled sheets.
Malissy was nowhere around. Judg?
ing from the condition of the apart?
ment, she hadn't been anywhere
around since I left.
I found myself without a maid, and
In a dishearteningly dirty home. The
kitchen was full of dirty dishes. I
surmised that John had been getting
his own breakfast and using clean
dishes as long as the supply lasted.
Congratulating myself upon tbe
muscle and a-nrgy that ten dayB of ten?
nis and loafing had equipped me with,
I called in the janitor, and together
we scrubbed and dusted and swept the
apartment into a semblance of cleanli?
ness. Ahead of me, however, still
stretched several days of hard house?
cleaning and tho task of breaking in a

Banking as a Grocer's Adjunct.
A grocer, who contemplated start?
ing a branch store, spent a day in tbe
store of the man whom he expected
to buy out, investigating neighbor?
hood conditions. In came a little
girl for two pounds of sugar, a pack?
age of starch, some flour, salt, and cof?
fee. Her purchases came to 87 cents.
"Mother will have a dollar tomor?
row," she said, "and she will pay you
The grocer nodded.
"And she wants the change now,"
the child added. "She needs money
to buy thread."
Unhesitatingly he counted out 13
The visitor was amazed.
"Is that the way you do business
down here?" he asked.
"Have to." said the neighborhood
tradesman. "Can't get along any oth?
er way. You have to know the people
you can safely extend credit to. but
the Judgment and the will to carry on
a limited banking business without in?
terest is the basis of every grocer's
success In this part of town."
The grocer abandoned the new en?
Character Told by Clothes.
Mr Uutzon Borglum. the sculptor,
says in a newspaper article: When
I get an order for a statue of a dead
man. I ask his people for a suit of
) hts clothes?not a new suit, but an old
1 one. thc oldest suit that may be found.
I can tell the man's character by six
j laches of the legs of his trousers." It
