resourcefulness and ingenuity of
William Deardon. who was his pri

the situation, Dcardpn could always
think up a way to handle it. One
day he accompanied Winslow intj a
big store. There was a vaain?i.**
delay about getting hold af g clerk
to wait on him.
"W-iit. I'll get you one." said
Deaidon, and be stepped into the

moment a floorwalker rushed up lo

Some weeks ago Deardon learned
that (Jen. Pershing had wired l?>r
100 additional high-g-ade ?Vid
clerks. Now, the idea o< doing sec
retarial work about Pershing's
headquarters over in France appeal
ed to Deardon as an experience
worth having. He determined to
have it, but when he got up to the
War Department, and to the office
of the man who was to tike down
the applications, he noticed that
there were ?some 300 men in line
ahead of him. Three hundred men.
you understand, and only 100 places
to be tilled. But that wag no ob
stacle to Deardon. He wrote a
brief message on a piece of paper,
beckoned to a messenger boy stand
ing nearby, and bade him take the
note to the army officer who was
writing down the men's names at
the head of the line. Tbe note said:
"I wish to apply for a field clerk

In line. Just motion to me if this
Interests you. I'm thc round-faced

Well, the thing excited thc army

"What reason have you to offer why
I should take your application iiheu-i
of those who have be.m i-t ???|???- in

"t?tep over In the comer.'? .replied
