1 AM desperately In love with a young

luves me He has told me so several

1 hair and always when with me ad
mires grls who have yellow hair lIe
told me last night that when he marries
ho Is goln to marry a girl with light
hair As my hair Is black do you think
i I could win this young man If I bleached
j my hair Although I think such a thing
shows weakness of character and is
also foolish I also think true love Is
worth anything and everything
I do not think you can win the young
mans affection by bleaching your hair
and I advise you not to do 10 Perhaps
he Is merely teasing ou by his fondness
for blondes It he really loved you he
would prefer your hair as It is Be
sides his love is not worth hiving If it
can be won by every blonde head

her fathers fortune Thorns was also a
friend ot Braliard father
HEN you are the ion of the
T casHer of tins Algonqnn
Dank said Wlgger
Yes yes And I alas believed my
father Innocent
He always was I see I have got
you Interested now Your father woe
Incorruptible So was George Winthrop
But they were like wax In the hinds
of my brother man of many names
and many vocations and absolutely
with no conscience He ruined both
But hnw coild he compel my father
to take the funds of the bank
I dont know But immediately iier
the defalcation Kendrick Maple wn
wealthier than he had been before
There Is some great mystery about
this that baffles me said Dralnard
helplessly and yet ycu will not penult
me to tell the police
It would do you nc good to tell the
polio All the police In New York
couldnt tlnJ Bllnknaohters house And
Kendrick Maple as such will never be
seem again As Wllloughby Thorne he
had asked for Bessie Winthrop In mar
rlaf and she had refused him Nalur
ally she would not connect him with
Maple But weve talked enough As
I saId there is a price on my head of
two thousand dollars Take me to the
police 1f you like My mouth will be
sealed and Bessie Winthrop may be
married to my brother
You Want Money 7
But not murdered by this doctor
I never said Bllnknachter was a
murdereras such He Is a doctor with
strftiige beliefs strange knowledge and
strange practices He has the reputa
tion In Austria of being able to take I
out the brain polish It up and replace
It Improved lie has the ability so
they say to cut off an arm or leg and
replace It as good as ever or better I
do not say of my own accord that this
Is so I have never seen him at work
1 made his acquaintance In Paris from
which city he wa driven by the police
and I Introduced him to my brother
And now come to your part to this
said Bralnard Why did you came to
me with this story Instead of telling It
wnaritU could be acted upon at one
L ft O1 SRI I IA1 WIlecM
It Is acted upon or net I told you I
wouldnt KO near the police The fate
of Bessie Wlnthrop Is absolutely noth
ing to me But I hate my brother Ho
la rich I am broke hunted by the
police and I believe he nlds them In
preventing me from doing business
For he Is mlphtv hlffhtoncd now that
he Is rich It would not please him to
have people know that I the convicted
felon was the brother of Wllloughby
Thorne the financier
Dralnard was breathing hard
I think I can almost understand
he said You want money I
Thats what I came for To get
money and to cheat my brother Ho
kicked mo out of his house ono night
and said that he never wanted me there
again He saId he was going to marry
the prettiest girl In New York Bessie
Winthrop and didnt want me around
What are your terms
Half of the ten thousand Marcia Le

honest when it suits him I am going
I to Paris Give me the money
Striking a Bargain
Hut first tell me where the house of
Bllnknachter Is situated
No You doubt mo A man who fears
i another Is sometimes to be feared I
might give you the address and you
i might give me the money In an hour
I1 would be In tho hands of the police
and you would get your five thousand
I dollars back and the two thousand re
ward as well
And suppose 1 give you the money
now What assurance have I that yoj
vlll Rive me the right address
Thats so Its about as long as it
Is broad How can we fix It 1 I want to
be square but 1 dont want to get
We shall have to trust each other
We can do nothing tonight The money
Is in my mothers bank I will draw it
In the morning Meet me In any dls

Rhymes with hay

CLAEENCFI MEN to sea hcr try to

that live In the hay bait Can you
hear tho clank of th chains In the
knlsomltied calaboose
haicer sho rhymes with she sure
i must hale been tlm little Kmnle Few
duds of her day and date I suppose
she made her own clothes ami got
tlnxt before she finished they tell me
i that stringing phony pearls Is no snap
I After Hheil strung about nino million
to mako pjrt of a waist somebody
1 whistled for her to como on out and
O what wee doln and no she slipped
i mi the piece of a handmade pearl suit
that she had rinlthed and wrapped
found her a couple of yards of mos
quito netting grabbed from one of the
palace bunks and then exited dancing
to find the hinder
That Is she thought she wns dancing
I suppose everybody patted her on the
pulfs toll her that IIho could dance be
cause she had such a pull and because
number two If they didnt slip her the
salve shod hale become peeved with
them andve had their conks dished up
on handpalntPd plaques When Sa
Inma matched far the chocolate sundaes
Ill bet sha those head every time Sa
lomes little playmates must have boon
rubbing their cowlicks all the time and
wondering how It happened that they
were still on straight
Notice how she holds her arm straight
down at her side and her hand spread
Just Like Chuck Conner
out horizontally like Chuck Conners
saying Cut It out Well when she
does that Snlonio means Cut It off
She was always thinking how much
better heads looked on papier mache
platters than on people Her personal
staff of decapitators must have hauled
down a lot of overtime coin I
But If youre taking It from me I
think this Salome was a squeak at the I
dancing thing That Is If the squeens
that are Salomelng nUll halo got her
right Itunnlng around the block even
If theres a head on tho block Isnt
danseuse stuff The Salomes that are j
doing It now hop around In circles like
red ants on a hot rock till they get t
tired and then they flop down to take
a rest and wriggle around In misery
on the oilcloth and you wonder see
ing that theyre so good at the sprints
why they dont beat it around to the 1
drug store anil get a little Jamaica J
ginger or pepsin and bismuth or some i
thing to deaden that pain I
Talking about flopping down how do
you know that this Salome doll wasnt
a Hopper You get flopper dont you7 i

And they do it Just like Salome doe
her maybe dancejig around In circles
for a spell until theyve got a gong f

dropped a hot curling Iron down their
I backs While they squirm they keep It
one wick peeled for the bulls It
snags the change every time If no fly j
cops stab In to crab the game 1
Of course Salome didnt need the I
money but maybe she Invented the t
flopper sketch to get sympathy for her
self after shed given a batch of her
pals cerise tickets to the headremov
ing room
Did you hop up to the long hemp worn J it
by the dished head Maybe he got his 4
for putting oft buying a haircut too
long or too short or something And f
his Hughes limbrequlniyou got them
didnt you The barbers in Salomes
day must have had rough going to snip

that she hppped around were like that f
In front and on top
Salome is the Stockyards Sylph It
youre asking me again Shes the Pack
Ingtown Paulina and Id Jiut as Hot 1
see her crawl around on the TUX any
time as to see a couple of steers slaugh
tered for a barbecue
At that I mooched In with the mob
and broke nine mens arms trying to I
wedge up to a ticket speculator thatll
sell mo a seat for three and a half to
see Salome get the soles of her bare
tootsies smudged up with the stage
dust until they looked like shed been
taking the Knolpp cure In a coal yard j
And we all there and 1
sat whispered 1
about symbols Maybe we meant the
cymbals that Salome wean on her
chest We must have meant eomethlng
So she doesnt rhyme with home
eh 7 Im glad you told me that Id
hate to have one around where I live
