' Winthropo sat down, but throughout
tha meal he continued to complain over
'triflea with thO peevishness of a spoiled
child, until at length Miss Leslie blushed
for him. , , ..,.
Greatly to- her aatonhmment, Blake
endured the nagging without a sign of
llrritatlon, and in the end took his bow
and arrows and went oft down the cleft
with no more than a quiet reminder to
iWlhthrope that he should keep near the

came groping his way ack up the
gorge, he was by no means so calm,
out'of sir shots he had hit one ante

haunch, yet both .animals bad made off
all the swifter for their wounds.
The noise of his approach wakened
Wlnthrope, who turned over and began
to complain In a whining falsetto. Miss
Leslie, who Was peering out through
the bars Of her screen, looked to see
Blako kick tho prostrate man. His
frown showed only too clearly that he
was In a Bavago temper.
To her astonishment, ho spoke in a
soothing tone until Wlnthrope again fell
asleep. Then ho ouletly set about
erecting a canopy of nambooS over the
Just why ho should build this was a

without a trace of tho fear which had

"Well, I'll be dashed!" 're exclaimed,
and he stood stating at her, open

turning as though to show the fit ot the

you're a peach!"
"Thank you," she said. "And here is
the skirt. I have ripped it open. You
see. it will make a fine flag."
"If It's put up. Seems a pity, though,
to do that, when we're getting on so
line. What do you say to leaving it
down, and starting a little colony ot our
own?" r
Miss Leslie raised the skirt in her
outstretched hands. Behind It her face
became white as the cloth.
"Well?" demanded Blake soberly,
though his pale eyes were twinkling at
the joke. His tone confirmed the girl
In her fear. Yet she found courage to
meet the supposed attack.
"You forget the fever," she retorted
mockingly, and Blake failed to catch
the quaver which underlaid the light
"Sav you've got me there!" he ad
mitted. "Just pass over your flag, and
scrape up some grub. I'll be breaking
out a big bamboo. There are plenty of
holes and loose stones on tho cliff.

Mlsa Leslie murmured her thanks and
Immediately set about the preparation
of breakfast.
When Blake had the bamboo ready,
with one edge Of the broad piece of
white duck lashed to It with catgut as
high, up as the tapering staff would
bear, he called upon Wlnthrope to ac
company 'him.
"You can go, too, Miss Jenny," he
added. "You haven't been on the cliff

his feet lay his father's prize calf.

in his room trying to get out of hts

nomehow the drv trousers did not seem

Capital Hello Girls
Not Held in Check
"Hello girls" employed at the local-exchanges
are- congratulating themselves
today that they, are not employed In the
same capacity in Chicago, where tele:
phone operators", according to 'recent! re
ports, are restricted to certain modes
ot dress, besides being prohibited from
flirting over the wires."
Of course there Is no flirting carried
on over the local telephone wires. The
company forbids such unbusinesslike
conduct. In Chicago, the "hello girl"
must insist on being known as "opera
tor." Here that 1i not necessary.
"Number please?" Is the legal reply
tn.auch endearlnc terms as "Is this you
dear?" "It's a nice .day today," "Can I
take you out to lunch?" and all similar
brands of flirtatious lingo. Ot course
tnero is some discussion among the
Pilrls as to whether "I'll take you out -to
uneh" Is a strictly business QuesUbn
or not. '
Manager Tobln, of tha telephone com
pany, declares that the local operators
are not ruled with an Iron hand like
those of Chicago. lie says the girls are
forbidden to hold private conversations
over the wire, it is supposed that the
ban on "private conversations" prohib
its flirting. Manager "'Tobln says the
girls are permitted to wear anything
they wish within reason. Just so long
as they maintain their dignity and
businesslike manners over the wire.

CLICQ0OT Club Ginger Ale is always deliciously appetizing and
refreshing. The Crystal purity of the water and the prime quality
of, the sugar, ginger and extracts of limes and lemons used insure
this. For picnics, or bthcr similar occasions, its equal cannot be found.
Clicquot Club Ginger Ale appeals to men,
women and children. Its mildness of zest makes it
a delight to ladies and little folks who do not ordi
narily like eineer ale because of its harsh, throat
burning quality. It is cooling, refreshing, satisfying
-an ideal drink for summer. It goes well with
crackers or sandwiches or alone. Although
reasonable in price, it is unapproachable in purity,
wholesomeness and fine quality. It is served in
the, best families everywhere.
