The Last of Rowdyism
It comes as considerable of a shock to learn that
bosses in certain lumber camps of the Pacific north
west have taken to laying out golf courses among the
stumps of the cut-over mountainsides where their
gangs have been working.
• The resulting picture is easy to imagine; the
heavy-fisted bull of the woods, arrayed in golf knick
ers. checkered socks and a form-fitting sweater,
waggles his golf club in a clearing that only recently
rang to the sound of axes, and whacks the elusive
ball over slopes where sweating lumber-jacks toiled to
bring ancient trees down to the matted sod.
It is all very surprising, and doubtless it is extreme
ly significant, in one way or another. At all events,
it would seem to indicate that the horny-handed
rough-necks of tradition are growing tamed at an
unprecedented rate.
A lumber-jack on a golf course! Well, times do
change. But there are places where this bit of in
formation ought to be received with loud cries of un
Peddle it through the old. cut-over Michigan white
pine country, some day, and see what response you
get. Michigan knew the lumber-jack in the day when
he was a sign and a portent for the timid; the day
when he worked like a Trojan all winter long, rode the
logs down foaming rivers in the springtime at high
peril to his unwashed neck, clung to one shirt
throughout his life and wound up each annual drive
with a two-fisted bender that jarred the w’hole pen
insula of the state.
The Pacific northwest knew him in the same in
carnation. Washington and Oregon can remember
when the woodsman's one great diversion was a semi
annual drunk that invariably ended in an epic fight—
a fight in which steel-spiked shoes descended lustily
on brawny bodies, a fight in which eye-gouging and
hitch-kicking were accepted as perfectly proper meth
ods of offense, a fight which as like as not would
tear down a whole building and think nothing of it.
That is the lumber camp tradi’ion. But now—
golf courses! Something has changed, somewhere.
Rowdyism is more intimately interwoven with our
past than we usually think. The lumber-jack was
only one among many; sailor, cowboy, miner, long
shoreman steel worker—all of these were halry
ehested, rough-and-tumble trades with no niceties or
But the old order does change, and the lumber-jack
Is like the rest of us. We seem to have lost the fron
tier forever, somehow. If they can build golf courses
adjacent to lumber camps, our riotous past has been
eternally burled.
Will You Be One?
The report on automobile accidents for the past
year is out at last, and Its «.»? extremely de
pressing. No fewer than 31.000 people wore killed in
this country by automobiles, and more than
more were injured. This represents an increase of
10 per cent over the preceding year.
The dreadful significance of those figures is hard
to assimilate until you study them a bit. For example:
during the next hour there will be three Americans
killed by automobiles, and 115 more will be hurt
many of them, crippled for life
Who will those doomed people be—those who a’"'
die or be crippled within the next 60 minutes? Well,
one of them may be yourself. Or it. may be that your
car will be the Instrument that strikes one of them

Twinkle, twinkle, lady fair,
Making loops up in the air,
Whirling like a wounded bird—
Don't you think it quite absurd?
Flashing ‘round and round in space
Yet not going any place:
Turning somersaults galore—
May I ask you, miss, what for?
Up above the world so high
Like a pinwheel in the sky,
Wrongside up you twist and sway—
Should a lady act that way?
Aiming for a record new
At a stunt few women do.
Going into loops and out—
What's it all, dear miss, about?
If your loops and turns are more
Than a girl has turned before.
If you make a thousand flat—
Tell me. dearie, what of that?
What can aviation learn,
What can engineers discern
From a girlie no place bound,
Simply turning round and round?
I admit that it’s a trick
Very good and pretty slick.
Still it leaves me cold I fear
And without the urge to cheer.
What I want to know Is this
If you will excuse it, miss:
Do you when you’re on the ground
Act In any way unsound?
When you’re in an auto do
You try looping in It, too?
Do you, washing dishes, dear,
Wash ’em standing on your ear?
Do you when you make a bed
Make it standing on your head?
Do you shopping ‘round the town
Ever do it upside down?
Do you almost always yearn
Just to turn and turn and turn?
Do you count the revolutions?
Twinkle, twinkle, lady fair.
Making loops up in the air.
Though you doubtlessly adore It.
I can see no reason for It.

Muddy Water
The Rio Grande river is playing
The waters have risen to a new
high mark, and the river has broken
out in many places, damaging
crops and in some instances mak
ing houseboats out of small shacks.
Monday afternoon Matamoros
was all hot and bothered fearing
an inundation of muddy water.

And speaking of muddy water,
the rio is so heavy with mud that
it looks like one could walk on it.
Dark brown, swirling in whirlpools
and currents, scattered driftwood
and brush riding with the flood, it
presents a sight worth seeing.

people visited thie scene. Hundreds

and judging by the way it is grow

much larger. There is really enough

It Takes All Kinds of Clubs to
..Make a City—There’s the Com
muters, for Instance, and the
Stammerers, Too
NEW YORK. June 3.—Manhat
tan has. among other things, a vast
assortment of unique clubs.
Since, according to legend, this
is a city big enough for like to
meet like, however odd the cir
cumstances, It is no more than na
tural that an assortment of every
body should get together in some
form of fraternity.
• • •
There is, for instance, a club of
commuters who for years have
taken a certain tram from Phila
delphia each morning for years
without end.
During this period of time, the
gents who prefer to live in Philly
and work in New York have met
time and again over their news
papers or 7*eir pinochle games
They have come to know a great
deal about each others’ lives,
through the small talk dropped en
route, and to have a neighborly
feeling toward each other.
Each day they take more than
four hours out of their lives going
and coming. This approximates, ac
cording to rough mathematics,
some 70 days —more than two
months—of a year Reduced to
eight-hour working days, it would
figure out more than that.
At any rate they meet once a
year and their banquet room is a
dining car on the line they
patronize. Some of them have been
at It for 20 years and deserve
croixs de guerre, even If all they
get Li soup.
• • m
Then there's the Stammerers’
Club, which deserves Its pla^e in
the sun It's composed almost en
tirely of gentlemen who in the
past or the present lust couldn't
make their speech behave.
The organizer came upon a
theory, quite accidentally, some
years ago.
He found tnat u a lew sentences
were said in public, before one's
fellows, that things would be sim
pler. So at each meeting some ex
stammerer or present stammerer
is called upon upon to say a few
lines. The statistics show a great
improvement in scores and absolute
cures in dozen of instances.

Farther up the island you'll find

"Perhaps because you never be

When their laugh was over they
walked on in silence for a half
block, and then Linda surprisingly
reopened the subject.
"I wonder why Senator Con
verse’s influence would be different
from Mr. Fentress'.’’ she said
thoughtfully. She really wanted to
know; it was amzzing to find that
Brian, young and clear minded and
n little romantic, regarded the sen
ator with anything but aversion.
"It is different," lie said, and they
went on slowly. * I don’t believe I
can make you understand, but I
will try. Put into word's it sounds
fantastic or what 1 loathe—senti

in his community. If somebody else
had been my father's son it would
have been the same, don't you see?
Not myself—but what I stood for.
I had to take my medicine or
leave it.”
"And if Senator Converse had
hacked you." said Linda in a low
“He wouldn’t, if he hadn't be
lieved in me. I was on my own
with him. and that made nil the
difference. His mind was not con
trolled by anything but his own
“Ah. He was not influenced by
your connections then;”
“I don't believe he knew I had
any,” said Brian simply.
“You admire hint?” she asked,
thinking of what Converse had said
last night. She could hardly keep
the scorn from her voice.
"Heaps.” said Brian, and she had
one of those illuminative glimpse
of what men may be to one anoth
er and what they may be to a wom
an at the same time.
The great facade of a hotel was
suddenly before them. A liveried
flunky stood before the revolving
door.* His blank gaze was fastened
upon the distance, but it was in
that he knew Linda and
aspected her to enter. ^
ii\o here.” '-he reminded her
companion, pausing.
"Won't you walk a little farther?
I haven't said half I wanted to.
What a fearful bore I've been."
She let him draw her on.
“I want you to understand of all
people. I know that what I’ve said
sounds like a prig or—a—boor,
which is nearly as bad. but If it’s
poinp to be like that, I wonder If
I really want It. I haven’t any
money and I’ll need a lot. They'll
expect me to live up to Simon
Fentress,” He laughed with u
tinge of bitterness.
Plie spoke impatiently. “O, but
if you loved it—if It was your
dream—so few of us pet our
dreams even in a tangled way!”
He looked at her hopefully. It
seemed that she had miraculously
voiced his half framed thoughts.
“A chap could do a lot of good
over there if he was really in
earnest,” he said wistfully. “It's
all such a muddle, and maybe It
doesn't matter much how I happen
to go—”
“That Is true.” said Linda eager
ly, ns if justification were pleasant
to her, also. “The result is the
thing, after all. If you get results.”
She was unconsciously quoting
Courtney Roth, whom every one
had forgotten. Suddenly she re
membered him. It was beginning to
mist in a fine, soft way. She was
tired from the long walk, and they
turned back obedient to a pressure
from her hand on his arm. He be
gan to reproach himself at once.
“You’re tired. You're awfully
white. I ought to be shot!” As
they neared the hotel again he said
diffidently: “I meant to ask you
hours ago, hut I got talking about
myself iike a duffer. Will yon dine
With (Bit S.iv that you will!”
But Linda smiled “no.” She was
always dining. He could not know,
of course, that her free evenings
were days ahead. They selected
one toward the end of the week.
Brian was in New York for an elas
tic r^riod.
“While the Fentresses arc here?”
Linda suggested with sudden en
lightenment. And when he admit
ted that as a matter of course, she
asked: “Why is Miss Fentress
against the appointment?”
She did not know hew cold her
tore sounded.
“Daisy? Oh. I think she's rather
keen on my keeping on with my
profession. I'm a lawyer—a sort of
one. you know. Daisy hates for
eign countries and all their parade.
She thinks they aren't real. She's
pure American.”
, Linda threw back her head, and
| laughed aloud. The gesture re
i leased the furs at her neck and a
; coil of the pearls she wore slipped
through and lay against the dark
soft collar. Her laughter was
startling, a little wild.
“Good-by.” she told him and left
him rather abruptly in the shadow
of the dampened doorman.
Love's Labyrinths.
HER step lagged a little, but she
stiffened as she entered the
j hotel. The elevator was directly
i before her and she could have
gained It with a few steps. She
turned, however, and walked to
ward the grilled enclosure where
a gentleman, a lesser gentleman
with other dimmer figures, was in
stalled In that curious haughty si
lence that is peculiar to high priced
Linda’s walk was one of the rar
est qualities she possessed. She
was so tall and slender that she
seemed always about to bend and
break under the demand of effort.
Her wraps were always slipping
from her shoulders, hut never did.
Her eyes, half veiled, appeared to
see nothing, hut she had seen dis
tinctly the looks that followed and
greeted her. The bellboys on thetr
bench were watching her furtive
ly; the second gentleman at the
desk leaned on hi* pointed elbow
to ltoteu to her, and watrh. All of
them saw the new expensive hat
and the pear’** slipping from her
rich fur.
‘My letters, please." Linda's
voice was sweet and very low. She
spoke as little as possible to such
persons as these. The letters were
in her hand, and she was turning
away before she said "Thank you"
in a negligent tone as though that
grilled-in group had no meaniog
for her.
Trey looked after her hopelessly.
She Fienied rich and prosperous.
The cl*efc looked doubtfully at a
letter tha'bad been separated from
the rest; fina’ly he tucked It away •
in a private pi3*>n hole. It would
not do to make a mistake in this
But Linda knew nothing of this.
She passed on to tie elevator,
leisurely examining the >tters in
her hand.
Linda no longer occupied Cousin
Amy's house when the family were
away. The fiasco of her marriawf ^
was n half-told secret, discrete
ignored by her relatives, who*,
number seemed to have dwindle*
perceptibly. t It Is one thing tv
chaperon and champion a young
girl, very beautiful and pathetical
ly poor, but quite another to be
responsible for a widow, however
young and beautiful, whose affairs,
to say the lea«t, are in a muddle
and deeply mysterious
Cousin Amy Ralston told some of
the others that she always felt a
cold chill down her hack when she
heard Linda's voice in the hall, so
it happened that by degrees her
own voice became so cold, so brief,
that Linda, not wishing to give
pain, refrained almost wholly from
communication with her sensitive
one tin'! purut* ‘urutiv aut
woman free and pretty, dressing
more than well and seen at her
l>est everywhere, is bound to have
friends and invitations. Only to
Linda the people who took her
about and entertained her seemed
oddly lers like friends than adver
saries. It was a curious feeling
that had grown upon her lately.
She was always on guard, always
standing ofT a little while she
smiled and talked softly. It wns
n? if a hundred pairs cf eyes were
seeking for a crack In her armor
which she was determined they
should not find.
For a long time she had had t
splendid time. She was not in the
strict sense of the word a woman
of society. Rather, she took what
she wanted of society and let the
rest, the bores, the dull parties, the
committees, alone. The people she
was seen w ith were usually charm
ing. though some were a little
vague about themselves. There
were always plenty cf hosts, dated,
by the ease, the grace cf Linda and J
her friends, who were quite ready- ^
to pay for the party.
It had puzzled them all that she
had not married again. There must
have been plenty of men to manrv
her—rich, desirable men who could
give her the setting she deserved.
But Linda was faintly amused by
this wonder. Talk of mamas* al
ways brought poignantly before her
the vision of the aftermath of her
twenty-four hour honeymoon, for
it had lasted no longer than that,
she knew.
But after she met Brian Anstey
she began to think of marriage
Not consciously, thougfl. Mar
riage as a form of ceremony did
not enter h* r mind. She would
have checked the idea in its birth.
If her conscious self had not heen
drugged by the artful subconscious
that knows so well how to take its
victims unaware. Linda conk! have
argued herself out of lore with a
poor young man If love l^ad not
stolen upon her and Winded her
eyes with beauty and sikiced her
lips and deafened her witrf dreams.
She never thought of raarfriage but
she began to chafe at th4 life she
led. I
