10 LUCK ITS
Our Best Little Village Globe
Trotter, Turned Sleuth,
Unlike Young Lochtnvar, who li said
to have charmed the fair lady and
carried her away before the eyes of her
"bridesmaids and groomsmen and
brothers and all," Hector Fuller, war
correspondent, globe trotter, and gen
eral all-round newspaper man, returned
from his last trip In search of the man
who had carried off "the lady," unsuc
cessful, and left her to the tender
mercies of the other man.
Jordan Lawrence Mott, Jr., scion of
the family who own the J. L. Mott Iron
works; Mrs. Frances Hewitt -Bowne,
a dashing young widow of "The Bay
City;" "Hector," of Immortal fame, and
Zeke, the fairy godfather In the per
son of the elder Mott, play a modern
day romance that would provoke a
smile If placed In a book by Anthony
Hope so they say.
nobbed of all details the story Is as
follows: Mrs. Bowne, brought up on an
Oregon ranch In the midst of a coun
try where sage brush nils the air with
fragrant perfumo and where the festive
coyote makes night glorious with sound,
tired of her lonely life there and later,
In her husband's ranch in New Jersey,
and left her husband to follow the way
or her own wayward Imagination In
other words, a career.
Story of Elopement.
All went well with the career until
he met young Mott, when "snap!"
the curtain rung down amid red fire.
The escape of Eliza across the Ice be
came as nothing to the hurried exit of
the fair ono to the arms of her admirer.
"From the desert I come to thee,"
sang young Fuller when he started In
pursuit at the Instigation of the elder
Mott to bring back the boy, and doubt
less fired also by his own feelings
so that "the winds were left behind with
the speed of my desire."
The pnlr left New York on the Brit
ish steamer lndradco for the Orient.
"Ha, ha, they will not escape me!"
exclaimed the valiant pursuer as he
took the next ship eastward.
When the pair reached Port bald,
"Hector" was coming up the roaditcnd.
He stepped ashore at Gibraltar Just In
time to wave a fond farewell to the
lady leaning over the rail ot the out
going atcumer. Through his knouledgo
of globe trotting and a spurt. Fuller
Ireached Hongkong ahead of the bridal
party and confronted them.
"Stand aside. Jack Dulton, we tear
ye not!" Fuller heard. He pleaded his
"passion and his llamo" on deaf ears.
E.MH threats of paternal wrath failed
to produco any effect either on bride
groom or lady.
Outfaced, turned down, unnerved,
"the pursuing villain" stepped uslde
and let them puss. They continue!

Fuller was to receive as an Incentive
to bring back the eloping youth, re

Is disconsolate. It Is said over the

LOS ANGELES VOTE
FOR FREE LUNCHES
Wealthy Bar Owners in Cali
fornia Sought to Abolish
Tempting Menus. ,
LOS ANOELE8, Dec. 4. The question
of whether there shall bo any more free
lunches In the saloons of Ixs Angeles
came up In connection with the vote
on the new choiter. The commission

vote of two to one. and the antl-frce
lunch ordinance, designed to banish the
free 'lunch from saloons, was beaten by
a heavy vote.
Amgng the saloons of this city the
free lunch, which In Its embryo was
simply cheese, sausages and crackers,
has developed Into practically an eight
courso dinner In some of the larger and
better saloons, each saloon striving to
outdo the others In the variety and
temptlngness of Its repast.
This state of affairs went on until six
of the big saloonkeepers got together
nnd started the movement to abolish
the free lunch. The Good Government
movement, otherwise known as "Goo
Ooos," under which this city Is ruled,
scenting this movement us a good re
form. Immediately got behind It an I
The six saloonkeepers state that- the
free lunch costs so much, In the at
tempts to outdo each other, that It Is
eating up a good share of the profits.
The menu of the big saloons consists
of soup, roast beef and ham, potatoes,
salad, cheese, bread and butter, many
kinds of sausages, radishes, green
onions, and green and ripe olives. The
small saloons ahev simply cheese, bo
logna sausage and olives. A man can
go Into any of the large saloons In the
city and for 6 cents, the price of a
glass of beer, can eat enough to keep
him from hunger for a day or two. For
15 cents any one can have three square
meals a day, eating food that has Its
equal only on the tables of the rich.
The meals are not "grab what you
can," but are daintily served by white

Enjoyed By Owners of
HIGH VIEW HOMES
SAID the head of the collection department of one of Washington's largest business enter
prises the other day: "We have been making collections among our High View custom
ers and reports to date show these collections to be
100 PER CENT
P "There is not another section in the entire city where collections are so good. And we have
customers in large numbers in every section of the city;"
These High View residents used to be rent payers. Today they are buying High View homes
with their former rent money making these homes their savings banks consequently, they
have more money to spend for other things.
How are things with you? Are you investing your money in a home or are you continuing
to waste it on rent?
TO INSPECT Take any G atrect car marked "Brookland" or "North Capi
tol und W streets," get oft at Rhode Island avenue, and walk one square east.
