THE ARGUS. MONDAY, NOVEMBER 1G, 1908.
WHEN THEY ALL CAME AT ONCE !
WOW ! PITY POOR JIM
S.Don't Get the Habit.
HABIT has us all.
You know It. x
I know it.
Everybody knows It.
But, who will admit it?
Jim Jones has to.
Jim Jones had a habit.
' An innocent habit but a
Jim Jones's habit was this:
paying of "Come and see me
time. Old Man."
. It was Innocently Incurred; a
meaningless phrase acquired. A
plain, simple lapse of reason Into
Jim Jones did not realize he was
Baying it. It was his habit; there
fore, it Just happened. (Some stut
terers whistle; some folks say "you
know" before they can proceed in
When Jim Jonej had a particu
larly eoo catch of fish, he said to
j the guide, "Come and see me some
time, Old Man. When he met the
retired actor who had played with
Booth and Barret, he naturally felt
proud, and habitually said, "Come
and see me some time. Old Man."
After his conversation at the
church social, when he had had an
opportunity to use to advantage his
knowledge of Scriptural quotations,
to his listener, the oldest deacon, he
made his customary remark.
After having had x.he honor of be
ing introduced as a visitor to the
Wellington Club, to the president
he said his same little parting say.
Having grasped tlie mitt of '"Kid"
Killum, he tendered to that worthy
exponent of the fistic art his stereo
typed Invitation, "Come and 6ee me
some time. Old Man."
Having had occasion to come into
personal contact with "Clarence, the
Cop," after donating a cigar for the
inner oramentation of that notewor
thy celebrity's iielmet, he begged the
honor of that celebrated character's
presence In his vicinity at some fu
ture date. And he did it in the
same old way.
Decoration Da7, at the barracks,
he let it be known to a yarn-spinning
veteran that he would be
pleased to hear all about Shiloh, if
the grizzled warrior would pay him
the honor of a personal call. And
the wording of the invitation was
not varied in the least.
Once he had a chance to decide a
bet on a . dog's breed, and the dog
man was the recipient of a request
to enjoy Jim's hospitality on some
When he went down in the ooal
mine that time, he took his habit
with him. On the fishing smack it
still clung to him. He couldn't lose
it; it was too firmly implanted. It
had become an unconscious part of
him. The fat boy, the man with the
braided beard, the conductor, the fire
laddie, the clerk at the haberdasher's,
the fellow he met on the train, and
a multitude more, including the
chauffeur and male humanity In
general, were all told to "Come and
see me some time. Old Man."
Once his name had been put up at
the primaries, and in a burst of good
fellowship the whole ward was invited.
Psychologists tell us there is
something called "the psychological
moment," whatever that is. Vari
ous definitions, long-winded and
stem-wound., have been given of it.
Abe '. the most satisfactory and
easily understood explanation of the
term is. it's the time when some
thing is "liable to drap."
Into the peaceful life of Jim Jones
came one day "the psychological mo
ment," and something "drapped." It
not only "drapped," but it "busted"
all over Jim. His psychological
works were sorely disrupted. ' Sec
ond hands, minute hands, pivot
wheels, jewels, hairsprings, main
springs, crystals, case, chain and all
fell under the trip hammer of "In
nocent Habit"; and the result upon
his psychological soul was all that
self-appointed vengeance could de
sire. Of course, Jim was not expecting
them. His habit of saving. "Come
and see me some time, Old Man," was
as much a part of him as winks, i
And nobody pays any attention to
Jim would gladly have had the
curtain of charity drawn over the
scene, but the boss couldn't see it
that way. That'ti why Jim changed
His habit of saying, "Come and
see me some time. Old Man," bore
bitter fruit. THEY ALL CAME AT
The time between putting on hi3
hat and coat and saying Eood-by to
the rest of the clerks (without the
"Come and see me some time, Old
Man"), and when he reached heme
that evening, remains somewhat of
a fogged negative to Jim.
At last, when the thing HAD TO
I BE DONE. Jim Jone3 went home,
j He found the whole -vard there, with
i his successful rival at the primaries
I exhibiting their father's incompar
! Now, honestly, don't you think It
i was; enough to make one cuss?
