If HAT he was an alien In New

Bounce this delicacy at the first meal

<o Spend two or Ihree weeks In said
H jMty on a business trip never occurred
m h him.
On this memorable hip to New York
I ie had gone to a newly completed and
I lalatial hotel that he had never gone
to before. His reason if the truth
I toust be told, was berausb that dis
unfitly charming young woman namI
Id Miss Lancaster, whom he had watch
I Id With interest in the Pullman car
I tooting to New York from the West,
?ta whom he had eventually been
? hnsiness man who also
'*7 MblUUUVV M,? W
knew her, gave orders to the taxi man
to drive there.
i "f>rlVe me to the Metropolitan, and
/ Whin you come back take these bag*
fage eh cks and have my boxes sent
6v?." Miss Lancaster had then given
the ta man quite a handful of bagage
i Chicks, and as Eli Pemberton roi.ed
his hat to her and watched the re|r
freittng taxi cab he also made up his
; kind to "stop" at the Metropolitan.
That was how it happened that he
eras in strange surroundings, and why
; text morning there were waiters whose
faces he had never seen before and an
entirely headwaiter to break into
Ilia Yankee tastes.
/ As soon as he had ordered oatmeal
Cud pancakes and sausages and coffee
ne said to the waiter: "And a piece of
Cpple pie." That wns (he order that
..the waltrs at the other hotel had had
to gat used to.
"Happle pie, sir?' echoed the waiter,

voice as a waiter could permit himkpf.ifclf..
"Hi'm not sure sir, as wo ran do

ly' Mr. Pemborton summoned the head
| Waiter, and placing a dollar hill in his
7 band, he asked him to "fix it up about
ffci pie' for him. And tho plo was
peedily got from a nearby pastry mak
era and was set before him for breakI
fast. The next morning the pie was
I on hand when Mr. Pemberton arrived

IV-flnd something that ho had learned

Stir Store than any of the rest. Toward
Bpjrod Close Of the day he lingered in the
j lifice Ot one of tho men with whom he
Jid A good deal of business.
BK' "I've been wondering," he said to
P^'fiils man?Mr. Montague Stone?whose
; rife Ell had met and on that meeting
H ' iad classified as "typically New York.
We been wondering how many hat:
K moat women have to have. You see
B I've noticed thoso things. I have an
i Idea that my own mother never had
B 'more than two hats at a time. Bui
'then the was a plain Y'ankce woman
[ Seems as it I remember that she used
to have a big box full ot ribbons and
( Bowers and the things women fasten
on their hats to make them pretty,
Bj and as I recall it, she used to take an
oldfhat and sort ot bend it down and
B fuss with it and make another hat
OUt Ot it. But nowadays In New YorK
H a Woman I suppose would have to have
B 'ft dozen hats at least.
B&i' "She'd have to have a husband with
fl more money than I have to have that
I m*ny" commented Mr. Montague
M Stone. "Why.-I don't believe my wife
B ever has more than four in a season.
Of course, some of those rich society
B women you read about might havt a
I \ doien or so. I suppose they do.'
C "If you knew a girl that traveled
\with twenty hats," sugested Mr. Pen
I'Mltton, "I suppose you draw the conU
bclUBion that she was a society women
I I "I suppose bo." 1
B IV Ell heaved a sigh.
Brjp "What's the use?"
fit doesnt amount to much," Mr.
B pendletOn said. "But you see I've tray
ft eled on from tho west with a woman
Huuht interested me a lot. She seemed
BmUM euch a sensible, matter of fact?
BVIlke tho kind of girl I think my mother

The women of war days are not permitted
to burst forth in khaki and
brass buttons, but they are doing their
; best to look military by adopting the
I swinging military cape and cape-coat.
This one is of oyster-gray basketweave
wool, with gray silk stitching
and black and tyhite lining of foulard.
Mr. Pendleton smiled his pleasuro
at this announcement.
"You go toll that party there's another
pie eating Yankee here, and it ho
hasn any objovion he'd like to rank" ]
hie acquaintance, 'ere, take my card,"
and Mr. Pendleton slipped a dollar bill
into the waiters hand when be gave
him tho card.
"She took the cord," said tho wuitor
when he had returned from tho other
end ol the dining room. "She laughed
quite a lot, she did, and said as how
she'd like to meet you. She said she
was always glad to know a real Yankco,
and would I show you oro.\"
"Well, I didn't know it was a lady,
commented Mr. Pendleton, "but a Yanko
is a Yankee. Show mo her table."
The girl eating the pie at the other
end of the restaurant was nono other
than Miss Lancaster of the many hats.
"Say, get mo another pleco of pie,"
Mr. Pendleton told the waiter, when
ho had taken the chair offered to him
by Miss Lancaster. "I happen to be
acquainted with Miss Lancaster?I'll
finish my breakfast here."
Pendleton's business in New York
. had been completed tho day before but
; somehow he decided to remain over
another day, for the following day Miss
Lancaster was booked to return to
New Bigland.
It was three months later when TSli
, Pendleton again ro'.urnod to Mew York
and dropped Into '.he office of Montague
; "Did you ever find out any more
i about the lady with the twenty huts?'
asked Montague Stou*. "I was asking
my wife about It. She wants to know

"Why. that wns Amy LancasterAmy

I year 1582 no one knew Just what

i Then Dr. Koch discovered that it
was a germ which was named the
tubercle bacillus.
This germ is so small that It has
I to be magnified several hundred times
before one can see it. It is like a seed
but It multiplies more rapidly than
any kind of seed tnat we can see witn
our oyes alone.
Millions and millions of these germs
may be in a sick person'slungs. Yet
this germ ha3 been called the "most
powerful bug in the world'' because it
kils more people than any other germ.
Tuberculosis generally attacks a
person's lungs Often, however, it
seizes hold of other parts of the body
like the bores, particularly in children
When tb.'s happens it makes cripples
or hu'!cbV..-.c;cs If it doesn't succeed in
killing them.
