"Ever been to Joplin, Missouri?" I
heard one traveling man ask another
f on a Tulane belt car a few evenings
" ago. "Well, say, that's where they
" 'show you,' all right. I blew into that
thriving villa not many moots past"
and it just happened that my sample
case went breezing off in another di
i rection, so in Joplin, Mo., little Willie
was booked to hang out till the missing
f case put in an appearance. Oh, say,
you should have piped me floating
around in my gladdest with a twenty
five-center stuck in my face and looking
as if I were selling railroads instead

I ing terms with the skirt that runs the
cigar stand and one evening when we
f were having an animated discussion
on Peary's chances of reaching the

- playhouse-I forget which-in blew
ithe swellest bunch of clothes that ever
came down the pike. Take it from me,
that girl was a winner, and she had
3 enough junk on her left mitt to star a
f jewelry store. Up she glided to the
f cigar stand and began chewing the
rag with the presiding divinity. I got
I a knock-down all right, and after that

Willie. I'm not denying that I got

I blowed if there wasn't before me the
B swellest collection of brownstone you'd
ever want to see. Was I impressed?
- -sure and certain I was, and when the
divinity asked me to call around the
following evening, I pinched myself
to be sure it wasn't a pipe. I blew
in the next evening and was admitted
e bya supercilious looking flunky who
s showed me into a swell reception room
and trailed off with my card when I
murmured a request for 'Miss De
r Lancey.' 'DeLancey'-that was her
handle, and it sounded like the real
thing to me. In a few moments in
breezed a stately old dame, rustling
like the wind in a pine grove, and lift
ing up a pair of lorgnettes, surveyed
me curiously like I was some sort of
new-fangled insect. I was on thy feet
in an instant, and with my best society
manner I asked: 'Pawdon me, but is
Miss DeLawecy in?' 'Miss DeLancey?'
repeated the old dame, sort of puzz'ed
-and still eyeing me through those goo
goo glasses, and then by the gods of
war, all of a sudden she began to
laugh-breathlessly, helplessly, hys
terically and as if she'd never get
done-and finally managed to gasp:
'I suppose you mean Maria. You
have been directed to the wrong en
trance. The servants' quarters are in
the rear!' Say, I'm kiqder sore about
that Joplin business; keep it dark,
won't you? and-but never mind, old
man, here's my corner; so long." And
with that he swung off the car leaving
his companion and several others con
vulsed with ungovernable amtusement.
