Move Into a Wired House
When looking for a house with all modern improvements, see
that it's wired for electric light-it is as essential as the plumb
hag.
A House Wired for
Electric Service
afdords copveniences and comforts not obtainable otherwise
electric light, electric heating and cooking, the use of electric
fans and other things electrical. All useful, labor saving and
economical.
If the house you like is not wired, ask the landlord to have
it wired-he will do it without fuss or bother to you, and at
moderate cost to him.

Dinner
By G. A. Deanen
Once upon a time there was a girl.
She was a very pretty girl. Some
people might think that had nothing
to do with the case. but I assure you
it has a great deal to do \with this
case--and most cases.
This particular pretty girl \was on
her way home for a vacation from thu
((cliege where she spent Iapias nloney'
and learned a good many things more
or less good for her.
It was vacation time and the pretty
girl was in a wacation humor So, lhe
ing a daughter of Eve, she betook her
self gaily to the stores where the
pretty things are and began to pur
(base largely'.
But first, because she was a wise
young woman and knew some things
she hadn't learned at college, she
purchased her railroad ticket and her
Fullman section for her homeward
trip.
Lost in the mazes of a great de
partment store, she enjoyed an hour
or two of entirely feminine ecstasy.
First there was a hat. Anybody,
even a novice, could see how much
prettier that very pretty girl looked
in that hat. So it was bought and
placed on her head.
Then there was a long coat. The
hat and the artistic unities seemed to
require that coat. Besides, it was a
"real bargain." So the coat was
bought and put on with the hat.
Then there were some lovely long
gloves, they were very delicate in
color and they matched the coat. So
the gloves were bought and put on.
Then. indeed, the very pretty girl
was quite irresistible. She pinned a
large bunch of violets on the new
coat, smiled at her reflection in the
long mirror, and called for the sum
total.
The sum total was presented, and
the very pretty girl's smile faded and
grew rather sickly. Her mouth pursed
itself in a round O-but she paid it
without a murmur and stood thought
fully regarding her remaining quar
ter.
Then it so happened that a second
look in the mirror restored her se
renity. She recalled the law of com

r I

pensation learned in Philosophy A.
Cheerfully she gathered up her suit
case and went out to hail a passing
street car.
All the time the very pretty girl
had been satisfying her feminine long
ings, she had been dimly conscious of
another longing, still unsatisfied. It
so happened that when she alighted
at the railroad station this other long
ing began to clamor with a voice that
would not be stilled. She was hun.
gry.
Now, though her pocketbook was of
silver links and large and exceedingly
fine to look at, it contained only two
little dimes, that jingled with a for.
lorn and lonely sound. Tbe very pret
ty girl in her new hat and coat took
the solitary dimes from the fine silver
purse and looked at them wistfully.
Distractingly good odors were wafted
to her nosMtrils from the diner at the
rear end of the long train. She sigh
ed, and returned the dimes to the
purse. Then a sudden thought struck
her. She ran quickly across the plat
form to a near fruit stand and in a
moment more one of the lonely dimes
was changed for a bag of bananas.
Now it happened that when the
very pretty girl was safely seated in
her section and the train had begun
to move three lusty young men enter
ed the car. They were also on thetir
way home from a neighboring college.
They also were in a holiday mood.
They meant to spend a joyous vaca
tion as a relief to the deadly grind of
football and fraternities.
As these three lusty ones made
their way down the car aisle their
mglances fell upon the very pretty girl
in her distracting new hat and the
coat that went with it. With one as
cord they all stopped and greeted her.
For they all knew her. One knew
her with the knowledge of dancing
parties and college football games.
The second knew ber with the in
timacy of a childhood friendship.
And the third-he didn't know her
at all, because he loved her, and love
is blind.
"Have you been to dinner?" asked
the first young man.
A gleam of hope lit up the very
pretty girl's eyes and made them star
(at his address, delgmated by him on the
books of this corporation) at least ten days
prior to the date of said meeting.

The second man drew carefully. and
the sight of another long slip c(alled
from him an exclama ion of regret.
But the third man looked at his
short strip reverently. Hle folded it
up and put it into his pocket.
"Lucky dog!" said the first man
gaily.
"I envy you." murmured the second
The third man's face was full of
light.
"I can't lose." he said.
Then it followed that the third man
collected all the dimes and quarters
of the other two, and made his way
back to the car, where the very pret
ty girl sat waiting.
"So you are the one," she said, but
she did not look disappointed.
"Yes," he answered, "I am the
one-"
He guided her down the aisle of
that car and across to the diner. And
the unlucky two followed at a dis
tance, for they were very, very hun
gry.
And behold the two had quite for
gotten their hungry brethren, neither
did they take much interest in the
bountiful dinner placed before them.
so that those watching burned with a
desire to take from them the steak
and salad they so little appreciated.
For the man sat looking into the vio
let eyes of the girl, and the girl toyed
with her fork and listened to the
wards he was saying, while her color
came and went.
So when the watchers could In no
way gain their notice, they crept sad
ly away and were fain to return to
the smoker. And behold, as they pass
ed the seat of the very pretty girl,
their gaze fell on a partly opened bag,
and from the bag protruded the end
of a plump yellow banana.
It was long before the very pretty
girl came back to her seat, and when
she did, her cheeks were glowing
with a lovely color. It was longer
still before she missed the bananas.
Even then her suspicious glance fell
t upon and wrongly accused two itino
cent urchins across the aisle.
As for the two real culprits, she had
I forgotten their existence. She had
forgotten the dinner their money had
Spurchased-she had fogotten every
thing but the look in the eyes of the
man who didn't know her-because he
loved her.
NATURAL FOR THEM TO SING
American Negroes Have the Instinct
of Harmony Almost as the
Birds Have It.
The American negroes are natural
singers. Nature has "placed" thelr
voices and givren them a genius for
Improvising the alto, tenor and basu
Iparts of their songs with emotional
riehness and perfect harmony. The
American negroes, writes a contrlbu
tor to the Craftsman, have what has
been called the "harmonic ear." At
Hampton institute, the industrial
school for negra nd Indians in Vir*
ginia, a chorus of 800 negro students
slngs without accompanalment and in
faultless pitch throughout an evening,
chanting In the untaught harmonies
Speculiar to the negro the old plan
tation songs of the past generation.
SOnce, when I visited Hampton, a
musician from Europe was present.
He asked me who trained the chorus.
"Nobody trains the negroes," I said.
I "*Thelr singing is natural."
"I don't mean who trains their
I voices or teaches them tone-produe
r tlon," he said. "I mean who teaches
Sthem their parts and trains them to
Ssing togetber?"
"Nobody," I repeated.
"That is not possible," he said. "1
Shave never heard finer choral sing
INg."
S"If you do not believe me," I replied,
S"ask Major Moton, the negro leader
who starts the chorus In each song."
r Major Moton answered as I did.
5 The musician was amased.
"How do you do It'" he asked.
I "I don't know how we do it." the
negro answered. "We Just sing, that's
