He was not wrong In his surmise,
for when the two boj9 reached the

both of them went into the place ;

"Well, I will just take a try for this

up from the p.iper ht held in his
hand. "They want a strong, willing
he will see you," the clerk told them,
and they seated themselves to wait
with the rest.
You can imagine the surprise of the
two boys who had entered together
when the old gentleman who had
been their fellow-traveler in the
horse-car entered and was addressed
as Mr. Scovil by the clerk.
"I've got a first-class reference, but
I suppose it is all up with me, and I
may as well go," muttered the boy
He was right, for as soon as Mr

He was afraid if he took the time
to walk into town he might be too
late to have any chance of gelling the
place, so he resolved to invest five
cents in a car-fare.
It was a cold, raw morning, and
the only person in the car was an
old gentleman, well-wrapped up in a
heavy great coat.

"I was sent un to interview a man
about a threatened strike, and how I

he said some pretty harsh things to mc.
Told me that it was a blanked piece of
impertinence to come prying into his

on my inquisitive nature and finally or

"Strike?" 0, yes, the man did strike.
Went out a few hours after the paper
was off the presses. Quoted my article

trying to make himself solid with the
newspapers preparatory to making war
upon their union. The coals of, fire that
I heaped on his head were too hot, I
guess, and they burned him.
