This Man Has Gone Back on
Time-Honored Institution.
Event of Hie Youthful Days, In Which
a Parson and a Barrel Stave Fig

Permanently.
“Wonder If that measly custom of
tnakln’ children wait whenever there
la company at the table la in force
anywhere in civilization today?” asked
“Dune," the barber.
“Why?” asked the customer, who
knew Dane’s falling. “That does not
concern you now, does It?” He was
about to say something else, but the
lather was too close.
“Not directly,” replied Done, “but 1
was a victim of the cussed tell timber
style so many times when I was a kid
that I never have forgotten It.”
That was enough. The customer, a
regular, knew that Dune was In s rem
iniscent mood, so ha closed his eyes
and let the yarn unravel.
; *T never could understand the sense
In such a fool custom. I never cared to
eat with company. In fact, I preferred
not to, as their presence Interfered
with my freedom of motion. I used
to eat by the ’touch system;’ that Is,
I never had to look. My father said I
was a walkin’ allegory of hunger. I
have been Intendin’ for forty years to
And out just what he meant, but some
how I haven't had the time.
> “Well, anyway. If mother had Just
given me a handout, anything In the
form of food, I would have been willin'
to eat It in the kitchen or the wood
shed. But, no, we must wait and wall
nice. There were live of us, each out
last as empty as I always was. But
lif the children didn’t wait nice the
family wasn’t In good stsndln’ when I
Was a kid.
“The worst lickin’ 1 ever got was for
jhawlln' out a preacher when be took
the last piece of chicken. Five of u
were on the firing line just outside the
.dinin' room. I was In the first line
trench, lookin’ through the crack. At
|ter that salamander had finished his

talnly cook the best fried chickin' ot
{ anyone I know. I’m not goln’ to leave
any for manners. Fm Just goln’ to
take this last piece.'
, “And It was the last piece and I
iknew It, for I had counted 'em from
(where I stood. I hud that piece set
and Intended to grab It at the first
(charge of the bread line which 1 head
led.”
“Why did he call your mother Mrs.
'Beeeer T' asked the customer. “Your
'name Is Duncan, Isn’t It?”
“Duncan McCarty Beeeer,” replied
jDunc proudly, “that’s It. WeU. any
-way, I let an awful yelp out of me. 1

In order. No matter in band of less
than first-rate importance—and then
he deala with tt himself —is to take
more than three days to settle. It Is
pot a reform, it is a revolution, Is
the remark of those who have experi
enced the circumlocutions, delays and
fed tape of officialdom. “No longer Is
the head of a department to ask for
written reports from his subordinates
on Insignificant questions, when a few
minutes’ conversation would settle the
whole question. No longer Is pen to
be put to paper, and stacks of docu
ments collected, when a simple tele
phone call would suffice.” And as
final proof that the order la giiffe du
Tlgre, the Tiger’s own mark. It may
be added that departments are to be
subjected to supervision when leas!
expected, and that disregard for the
three-days’ rule will result In severe
penalties for the persons concerned. —

Hew He Got His Uniform.
He was a recruit la an aviation camp
in Texas. Uniforms were short there,
and many were forced to wear civilian
clothes. One young man, who wax es
peclally resourceful, was missing from
inspection one morning.
“Where’s Blank r asked the Ueuten
ant.
“In his tent, sir,” replied a friend
“He has no clothes.”
The lieutenant made haste to get to
the tent.
“What are you doing here without
your clothes?” he shouted.
“1 borrowed the clothes 1 wore down
here from a friend and promised to re
turn them. Last night I boxed them
up and sent them by express to his
home.”

Herbert Nlchol waited nervously at j
the telephone. Would she never an
swer? The operator was not ringing (
nearly loud enough. If there was no
one else In the bouse and Agnes was (
In her own rooms, she coitd not pos
sibly hear It. Ah I She had answered J
It at last)
“Hello, dear I” His tone was eager.
“How do yon do.” The answer was.
stiff, but in his eagerness he did not ,
notice It. ,
“Have you seen your favorite mags
zttie for this month, Agnes?” he asked I
In the same eager tone. ,
“Tes, I have. Mr. Nlchol; and I was j
never so lumiltedtn my life. When I
sat for you to paint my portrait 1 j (
thought the painting was for yourself, j j
not for a magazine cover. I thought
your Interest In me was a friendly one,
not a commercial one. I am sending
hack your ring today. Onod-by, Mr.
Nlchol. I was Just going out.” He |
heard the receiver go dow.
It was Some time bofoke Herbert
could realize what It all meant. He
had thought she would be delighted to
see her picture on a magdklne cover,
or he Would not have infbinltted It.
How was he to know that - ahe would
think It distasteful? Suraly, If • to
wns as anxious as she was- to go Into
moving pictures, a magazine lllustra
lion of herself could not be wo terrible.
It was the beat portrait he had ever
painted, and to have one at the leading
magazines use It for a cover—his mime
would be worth something and be
would never again have to wonder
where the next meal ws* coming from.
It waa for her he had persevered with
his art, and swallowed discouragement
more often than square meals. How
was she to know that, though? He
had .lever told her be was so poor,
and eh# thought him more successful

He wonld never paint another-pie
. ture. be roeotvrd. He could never pot
, the Inspiration again, after thla. In
, every mark of the brush he would too
. something to remind him of btr, Usd
, every face be painted would radiate
her loveliness. Mo, he could neve#
pi* lul again. He would have to go Id
, work—real work, that wonld take hta
i mind off the girl he bad wronged. Tea,
be had wronged her. be could see that
, the mure he thought It over. A girl
so well known In society to be classed
at an artist's model! He should have
thought of that before.
Ho Herbert put aside tits brushes and I
looked for work H# hod naver done '
manual labor In his ltf, and when he ■
secured s position In the shipping
room of a large manufacturing con
cern he found It harder than he had
expected. He began to like the work, :
but at times be felt almost unbearably I
restless. The men shout him Interest
ed him. They seemed ffi get much
more enjoyment out of life than h# had
ever gat, end he wondered how It was.
The head shipper seemed more
thoughtful than the rest. Herbert
asked him one day why It was tb# tutm
seemed bo happy and contented.
The shipper scratched hit bead, and
after thinking It over replied; “I do
not know, Herb, unless It's bscsnee
they fit In here. A man's made for
something, and unless he fluds that
something he’ll never be satisfied. Ton.
for Instance, ain't cut out to be doin’
this work, and no matter how long
yon stay nt It you ain’t going to like
It or feel satisfied. You'll be restless
until you strike the other thing you’re
made for. though perhaps now you
don’t Just know what It Is.”
”1 think 1 do know what It Is,” Her
bert replied, as he felt In his peeked
tor a crumpled letter that was nearly
two months old. It was an offer of a
steady position In the art depurttuent
of the miiguztne that had used his por
trait of Agnes, He had received tt in
the Mine mall with the returned en

said. - “Tour last work received raoffc
commendation than any other cover
wo ever used. We have been trying
over siacy to get In touch with you
We can use all the covers you can
turn out.”
Herbert was not as delighted over
the praise of his portrait us the mana
ger had expected. He said, "Thunk
you very much.” but he did not seem
to mean It.
“By the way, do you mind telling us
who the model for that picture was?
the manager said, as Herbert was leav
ing. “We have bud a number of in
quiries. 1 can get her steady work ai
the highest rate.”
“I cannot tell you her name." U-r
bert replied, and the manager noticed
the aad look that came over Ida Is-.--..
“She Is nut a professional model, and
would never pose for me or uuyon

Agnes' love. There were plenty ■ i
other beautiful girls In the world b
found, and roost of them were no
iisliuined to have their pictures uiqu-iir
on magazine covers. Ills work did nut
go unheeded by the public, liver)
day he was forced to decline 'ln\l:n

or equally famous actresses. Tin*,
wore plenty of pro* . srionii! nnslpls to
choose from, without ruitnlup tin
chance of offending outriders by uslo -

Otif moving picture actress, Jean
Feuer, was particularly anxious n.
have her portrait pointed by him. mu:
on an average of once a week he re
celved a letter from her company
press agent asking to have him |.ulut
her. He had sent a curt note stating
that he did not do outside work. Out
as the letters kept coining they In
lerested him. Me would see If In?
could not end her pentisivn#}-. he con
eluded, nnd wrote the pres-s K--o:
and said:
“Although I have never had Ho
lilensure of seeing Ml> Feuer, I like
her persistence. If she can prove to
tie that she Is ns beautiful as miv
ruislel 1 have ever palnlisi, I will U
idensed lo do her portrait without

'Tlial will settle her." Herbert
laughed, as be showed one of his tel
low artists the letter. "My m-dels
are all well-known beauties.' and If sli
ts as beautiful as any one of ib-ui -be
