"I have nothing but this bill." Hume
thrust into an inside pocket and drew
forth a |? Unote.

"R?ther," returned Hume cautious?

for the light of a drag store where

'Don't bother," said the old man:

go out Manayunk way together."

Th? Od gentleman's busnesslike tone
trailed off into a sigh.

The two men lioarded the car and
were flying away to 'MaoPh* Laity,
were Hying on their way to Mana?
yunk. They sat side by side, and Mr.
Hoveril handed the hlue coat a dime,
lifting two lingers. It takes some?
thing like three-quarters of an hour
to ride from the heart of Philadel?
phia to Manayunk. Hume could not
forbear smiling at this whimsical ad?
venture upon which he was engaged.
Suddenly a thought struck him. He
leaned over to the hectic ear of his

Mr. Boveril turned and gave him a
steady look. "I'd get somebody to
head you off."
"She must be young."
"Too young to marry."
The car fled on up past Fairmount
Park. There was a ful moon in the
sky that wove a pale filtering of light.
over the massed trees. As they pass?
ed the Wissahickon the tumbling wa?
ters at the dam gleamed white and
managed to send a noise of its bari?
tone into the rattling car.
"A fine sight for it?" suggested
Hume, his heart warming to his task.
Mr. Boveril nodded, pulled out a
fat gold watch. "Nearly eleven. That's

The player who thinks out a play
but makes s mechanical error In at?
tempting to execute it, usually draws
s compliment from his boss and team
mates. He is comforted With "That

player who thinks awry ano still is
lucky enough to get awa.v without
having cost his team anything Is sure
