AROUND THE CITY Something had gone wrong: with ;in auto mobile It was a ponderously big: machine, all rod nnd brass, and the chauffeur had crawled under nnd out from between Us wheels often enough to attract the usual crowd. A man Inside had the red leather cushion* all to himself, and to the bljzz of Impromptu suggestions from people who knew nothing whatever about automobiles neither he nor the chauffeur paid the slightest attention. About the time the situation had reached a demoralizing stasre ur. unkempt man of the out-of-a-Job type, who w.n sauntering aimlessly by, stopped long ? nough to see how things were going. 11 rid then nudged through the crowd to the chauffeur's side. Js your so-and-so all right?" he asked, with a directness that showed his knowl edge of cogs and wheels. "Certainly," snapped the chauffeur. And your so-and-so in good gear?" "Of course!" "Then you betti.: let me take a look un der " "I can attend to my own business. You K" about yours?If you've got any:" "We .ant afford to git huffy. Jim," re minded the man in the automobile. ''Go ahead, old man, and see if you can set us spinning." The "old man"-he was about twenty stx?crawled under the red and brass, stayed there about two minutes and then craw!ed out. "You're all right?s'long." "Hold on!" called the owner as the out of-a-J<ih man sauntered off. "Don't you want to be paid for your work?" Evidently he did not. for he even has tened his steps a bit. Then the chauffeur got In and the machine flashed around Pu ixrnt Circle. "That fellow's a machinist, all right," said one man in the crowd to another. "I feel sorry for that chauffeur when his boss gets through with him." "You needn't Waste any sympathy on the chauffeur. He may never learn his busi ness, but will he holding down his job long after that poor devil has gone to the dogs " And both turned to look after the un kempt man who was said to be taking his way doeward because of the loose screw In his own gear that nature had failed to put in working order. * * * A donkey In a crate Is enough to attract attention any day In the year, especially on a mild afternoon when the streets are full of people. The crate stood on the pavement in front of in express office and the shaggy little beast Inside accepted his position as philosophically as If It was quite the usual thing to be boxed in by pine boards. "Ketch onter de c'nary In de cage!" yelled out a small rag-tag boy, presumably to any one who would listen, as he was alone. "This Isn't a canary bird," explained an other boy. a neat little fellow who showed for hts mamma's good care. "This Is a pony." And the look of pitying scorn on the faoe of the rag-tag boy brought a round of laughter that would have done credit to Frank Daniels. * * * A man of affairs?you can always pick him out by his dress, walk and expres sion- wm hurrying along the State De partment r..gg!ng when he was uppealed to by a very little hoy??uch a little boy that he wore a "frock" and talked with a baby lisp. In his outstretched hand lay a dead sparrow. "I picked him up and he wont go," said the child, as confidingly as If the man of affairs had been his own father. "1 want you to make him go?far." To be requested to make a dead bird fly is too much to ask of any man of affairs. "Throw that thing in the street!" be an^ swered, slowing up a bit. "Can't you see it's dead? How do you suppose I can make it go?" "Wine him up wif a key," explained the tiny chap. Perhaps he was an unfortunate man who knew more about affairs than he did of lit tle children and clock toys, for he Just grunted as he hurried on. And perhaps, again, he would have tjeen ashamed of his surliness if he had turned to look back at the tiny boy and his bird. It isn't a particularly noble achievement to bring tears to a little child's eyes?not even for a man of affairs. Entertainment for the Blind.
