A QUICK SOLUTION
Angrily, moodily, Jack Jenkins,
sign -writer, surveyed the exterior of
Nicholas Petroff ScavovolisTd's new
drapery emponum. There could be
no doubt that Jenkins was greatly
perturbed over something. Presently
his xage'broke all bounds.
"The mean, hook-nosed, priceHcut
ting villain !" he yelled. "If he-dqesnJt
pay me, I'll I'll smash every blessed
window in his shop.'
"What's the trouble, matey?" -asked
a passmg Irishman.
"Trouble!" answered poor Jenkins,

inside the shop that's troubling me.

name for a week past, In all weath

ought to be in bed now with influe
enza, and yet the wlfiked scamp
won't pay me."
"Begorra," said Pat, "does the.

and ominotfsly surveyed the interior.
"Ifc looks like it!" snarled Jenkins.
"Then don't you do it," cried the
Irishman. "Let me hould the ladder
and ye lake my knife and .scrape his
name oft again!"
