HIS TAILOR CALLS TO SEE HIM WITH
HIS LITTLE BILL.
Tote Account Remains Vnsettled, lut
tbe Clotblnsr Artist I Taken Into
the Great -American Steam Trou-
era Creaser Company.
Copyright, 1000, by C. B. Lewis.
Major Crofoot had left the door of
his ollice open by accident, and as he
sat smoking with his heels on his desk
he was suddenly accosted with: -
"I vhas come for dot leetle bill."
"What er eh is it you?" exclaimed
the major as he almost fell out of his
chair In getting up. "Well, well, but
this is luck. Why, man, I 'was Just
making out n check for you. I happen
ed to remember that I owed you a dol
lar for cleaning my suit.
"Yes, it vhas n dollar," replied the
tailor as he held out the bill, "und you
don't pay me for a year.'
"A year? IIow time flies! -Yes, It Is
a bill for a dollar for cleaning a salt
and pepper suit, and if you had only
waited half an hour you would have
had a check for it The check would
have been filled out for $ 100. My dear
"I VHAS COME FOR DOT LEETLE EIIX."
man, you ore one of the few people
who had confidence in me when my
fortunes were at the lowest ebb. The
check for a hundred was to prove my
"VbelL I'll take him now," said the
"Ah, I remember that salt and pepper
suit and the days of my adversity!"
sighed the major as he walked about
and ignored the check. "You brought
the suit up here one day thoroughly
cleaned and rehabilitated, and you went
away saying not a word about the bill.
You treated me as if I had millions of
dollars, and never, never can 1 forget
your consideration. Major Crofoot re
members those who remember him."
"Vhell?" queried the tailor as he
looked at tbe bill in his hand.
'I said a check for a hundred, re
plied the major, "but I shall do better
than that. A hundredfold is not enough.
I'll make a rich man of you. I'll put
you right up among the millionaires.
The more I think of how you trusted
in my Integrity the more anxious am I
to prove my gratitude. Tailor, shake
hands. Tailor, accept my congratula
But how vhas he?" asked the cred
itor, with a puzzled look.
"It was this way, my dear, confiding
friend: I was just about to incorpo
rate tbe Great American Steam Trou
sers Creaser, with a cash capital of $1,-
000,000. The papers go to the secre
tary of state today. Next week tho
first machine is set up. In three
months we shall have 50 of them at
work in the principal cities of - the
United States. The stock is supposed
to sell at par, but I can get you $10,000
worth at $87. The dividends won't be
less than 00 per cent and may go a hun
dred. For the first machine out we
want a practical manager. You shall
have tbe position at $20,000 a year.
Tailor, shake hands."
k T don't see how he vhas," said the
tailor after a lymphatic shake.
"You don't? That is because your
good fortune has for tbe moment upset
you. Look at my trousers. Look at
the trousers of all the men you meet.
There axe creases in them. When you
buy a pair of $10 trousers, you pay $5
for the creases. You must have 'em to
be in the swim. Can't go into society
or get a check cashed at tho bank
without 'em. The creasing, as you
know. Is now done by hand and Is
slow work. Our company will crease
b steam. Tbe trousers will be fed
in, tbe same as straw, and at the rate
of 30 pairs a minute. They come out
beautifully creased, at a cost of only a
quarter a pair, and there you are.
Bach machine will crease 18,000 pairs
per day of ten hours, and that's an In
come of $4,500 a day. We shall steam
crease the trousers of tbe world. Ev
ery royal head will be among our pa
trons. - Isn't It plain to you now? Isn't
it as clear as daylight that you will be
riding In your own barouche In less
than six months?"
But you owe me a dollar," persisted
"Great Scott, but you talk about, a
dollar when hundreds of thousands are
falling at your feet! Let me go over
this once again. 1 We are the Great
American Steam Trousers Creaser.
We don't, steam trousers, but .we
crease 'em by steam." ...
I know." '
"We crease 18,000 pairs per day at a
quarter a pair. We make $4,400 per
day clear money on every machine,
and we have 20,000 machines at work.
Your share of the profits will be at
least half a million , dollars per year.
In ten years yon are worth $5,000,000.
Tailor, shake hands. It all comes from
your confidence in me."
"But 1 don't have some confidence.
I vhas here for my dollar."
"And the dollar . Is your deposit oa
your ground floor stock. It' Is an evi
dence of your . good faith - and will
eventually be returned to you. Can
you sell your shop today? Can you
be. ready In three days to taXe hold of
course, ion will be ready, and I can
depend on you.- Shall I speak to some
bank about your" opening an account?"
"If If you could pay"
"You'll get your first month's salary
Jn advance, and if you want to use half
a million I can lend you the Cash.
That's .all, except that we'll shake
hands agalu. You. will excuse me, I
kmr-, but I've got to go out for an
hour or two. Call again. , See you
later. Don't fall me."
The grand promoter put ou bis hat
and overcoat and left tbe office. The
tailor had come for that dollar. lie
took a chair to wait. The Ore was
I low and the room was cold, and in an
I hour his teeth were chattering. He
stood it for another hour, and then he
rose up and 6oftly tiptoed out and
went down stairs. At the foot of the
stairs he met a man who queried:
"Do you know if that old deadbeat
Major Crofoot is up stairj?"

"Have you been trying to collect a

A WOMAN'S STRATEGY.
6 he Found a War to Quicken a Last-
sard Lover to Action.
After the athletic young man, resting
lazily In an easy chair, had studied the
ceiling at which he was blowing smoke
he replied to the pretty sister who had
twice asked bim the same question:
"Bess, you Uuow I don't care the turn
of my hand for women. I'm saturated
with what the politicians call apathy.
Of course I remember the Georgia girl
that' visited us last summer. She was
a magnificent creature to look at, but
111 warrant she is just like the rest of
them. I paid her some attention for
your sake, little one, but really I had
to think twice before recalling her.
Her name was Molly, wasn't it?".
"Tab Twing writes me of a report
that Molly Is going to marry Captain
Howker of the army. You know him,"
and the sister took observations from
the corner of one- eye.
"What, that chump? The infernal
feather headed flirt and egotistical ig
noramus! What right has a conceited
puppy like that to marry a woman like
her, to drag her from garrison to camp
and from camp to garrison? Don't her
family know enough to prevent It?
Good heavens. Bess, you have Influence
with her! Why don't you interfere?"
"And get snubbed for my pains? I
guess not! But you seem agitated about
tho matter, my dear boy."
Xo; it's not that. Bess." Yet she
could see the blush 'on the back of bis
neck as he lwked out the window.
"I'm 111. I've felt It coming on for sev-
cral weeks. The truth is that the doc
tor says I mufct go south for awhile,'
and lie never hesitated nt this whop
per, and she was gushing In her hypo
critical svmpatby. "It's a confounded
nuisance, but I'll start tonight!"
Within 15 minutes she sent this:
"Darling Molly, he's coming. I told
you I'd find a way to 6tir him up."

When the Chief Cook Leave.
The Importance of a chief cook be
comes evident when the time for his
departure arrives. One day last week
the proprietor of a popular restaurant
on Fifth avenue decided for reasons of
hls bwn to part with the services of the
man who had for some years looked
after his kitchen. The chef retired
and with him more than 20 of his as
sistants. This number included his as
sistant cooks and every man in the
kitchen, even to the unimportant func
tionary who presides over the refriger
ators. This exodus did not surprise
The chef had brought the others with
him. and they were In a way more
closely attached to his service than to
the proprietor who paid them their
wages. When a substitute was hired,
he also brought the same complete
corps of assistants who are supposed
to know the methods of their chief bet
ter than any assistants not directly
employed by him.
This manner of employment exists in
all the larue restaurants, where the
head , cook is absolute master in tbo
kitchen and controls all the branches
of his department down to the most
unimportant. He is held responsible
on this ground for all that may happen
under his direction even If he was not ,
personally concerned in the matter.

QUARRIES OF OLD EGYPT.
Where Stone For Pyramids of the
Uenert Was Procured.
On the way to Thilic and the head of
the cataract, a short distance south of
Assouan, tve come upon tlie ancient
quarries' which supplied tho granite
for the columns, statuos and obelisks
throughout Egypt for many centuries.
An obelisk which we saw lies in its
native bed. It Is 95 feet in length, and
three sides have been carefully cut.
but for some unknown reason it was
never separated entirely from the par
ent rock. Tbe surface bears the tool
marks of the workmen. Tlie grooves
in It show that it was to have been re
duced at the. sides. It was supposed
that the Etone was split from its bed
by drilling holes In the rock and flllinjj
them with wooden wedges, which were
afterward saturated with water, the
swelling wood furnishing the power.
From illustrations in the temples it Is
clear that these great monuments were
floated down the river on llatboats and
rafts and then carried inland by arti
ficial canals or dragged overland by
thousands of slaves. In one of the
tombs at Beni-Hassan is a picture il
lustrating the process. The great stone
is loaded upon a huge sled drawn by a
multitude of workmen. One man is en
gaged in pouring water upon the run
ners to prevent friction; another stands
at the left of the statue and beats time,
that " the men may work in unison,
while overseers, provided with whips.
urge tlie laborers to their task. What
king desired to extricate this block
from the quarry, why it was left here,
what it was to commemorate, we can
never know. The riddle of the sphinx
is solved, but the riddle of the obelisk
in the quarry will no doubt remain
with-us forever. Chautauquan.
To Avoid mi Total Loss.
A Pittsburg man tells of a visit he
made at a thrifty home in a" nearby
town. The call was quite a pleasant
one and during the evening "Abey,"
the hopeful son of the family, was
sent to the cellar for refreshments for
thje guests. Lie could be heard grop
ing his way through the dark, and
then came the noise of something fall
ing and the crash of glass. "Abey's"
mother was plainly uneasy, but she
assumed the unnatural composure
which her society duties demanded.
Soon "Abey". came up with an armful
of bottles. '
"What was that noise we heard.
'Abey'?" asked the mother.
"Nothing much," replied "Abey."
"I knocked over a bottle of milk and
It rolled down the steps and spilled."
"Did you call the cat. 'Abey'?" asked
the thrifty woman. Pittsburg News. ,
