the manager would admit, in a confi

more people than they did had there

This enthusiastic intention was in
tended as a compliment- and perhaps
more. With his absorbing devotion to
the fruit trade and his glory in the
standing of his brands, possibly the
manager could not have thought' of a
happier distinction than having one's

"O h, you're locoed'!" rejoined Hebe,
swishing the nectarous nozzle from one
little tin god to another with an elysian
disregard of the spill. "The manager
will look above Jessie!" she added.
Dave had turned the valve again, and
the steam roared into one of the big
tanks. Another hissed and growled,
and the conversation of the girls was
inaudible. The packers had caught ur

the sealer blistered the yarn of solder
around the can tops, which spun on the
revolving- disks in front of him. The
metal string ran down from a coil over
his head, the whirling can caught it,

other workers might fall behino, but
the sealer could stand in his tracks,

The manager's tone closed the con

Dave as though his finger had been
caught against the door jamb, and the
worst of the pajn was that Jessie had

"Hurt, Jess?" he asked.
"No," she laughed, still beckoning to
the cans. That was all, but it seemed
to soothe Dave, and he laughed. Jessie
laughed, too. The manager was in his
office, seriously divesting himself of
apricot juice and sugar.
I seemed cooler in the steamy kitch-
n, though the mercury was rising.
Through the open door Dave soon saw
the manager strolling among the hurry
ing cutters. Some of the girls could
halve the 'cot and flip out the pit with
one quick twist of the knife and thumb.
The motion seemed simple, but you
could not understand it at first sight.
"Have 'em look a little sharper after
their sorting, Miss Bumble!" the man
ager called, after a flash of his quick
eye around the room.
"All right, sir!" said the "forelady,"/
who was clicking a hole with a ticket
punch in the tag of a fat and wheezing
cutter, who had brought her pile of pits
to get credit for having finished a box
of the 'cots. A hole in her tag was
worth six cents to her. "My, ain't it
hot!" she puffed, wiping her face with
her apron. I was late in July and the
sun beat remorselessly on the corru

some eucalyptus trees around the
works, as she stood in the doorway for
a moment and gazed longingly at the
mountains half hidden by a gray gauze
of dust. "Looks like a Santa Ana," said
the wheezy one.
"Trays!" sang out a shrill trio of so
pranos in the cutting-room.
"Always short of trays! I believe the
boys eat 'em!" growled the manager,
passing through to the kitchen and
shaking tfcings up all along the line.
The manager spent more time in the
kitchen than in his office, not altogether
to the gratification of Dave. The cook
ing was a critical process and' then
from the back door of the kitchen the
manager could keep one eye on the la
beling. Privately, Dave had expostu
lated to Hebe that it didn't do the help
any good to eye 'em all the timewhere
at Hebe winked privately and lumi
nously at the sealer.
The last batch of the forenoon had
been put in to cook, and Dave scanned
the water closely to see if a tell-tale
bubble was escaping from a leaky can.
Suddenly the water quivered. Dave felt
a little jar, and heard a crash as if a
tall stack of loaded trays had toppled
over in the cutting-room.
True to his trick, the manager leaped
up and, stood astride a corner of one of
the big tanks, peering across the half
partition to see what the mischief
There came a creaking sound. The
building swayed, the partitions heaving
and the boards grinding against each
other. There was another jar, as if a
freight-shifter had bumped into the
cannerythen a tremendous splash,
and sprays of water hissed upon the
sealer's hot irons.
A second of staring, startling silence
was followed by a chorus of shrieks that
overwhelmed all things.' After the
earthquake was over the girls had* time
to be frightened.
"My!" yelled the sealer, "the boss is

There were sounds of a struggle in the

by Dave and reached for the steam
