Last evening a dance was held at
Maaonlc hall and as the many couples
ewayed back and forth across the
brightly lighted windows, they were
watched by a number of the hill residaats
on the street a'ocve. Last night
was anusully hot and few could sleep.
Lying eteee to the open window In an
anxious search for some of those
friendly breezes. I thought of a densely
populated city I know about where
people without any to-do about it. carry
their cots out in the backyard and
slept (be sleep of the cool, in smaller
cities people are more or less infinanced
by what their neighbors do.
If they approve everything goes
smoothly; if not. one dare? not venture
on unfamiliar undertaking. Mr?.

and their songs floating out to me
_ They clapped enthusiastically for more

BMilght and even later. I watched

who took a very unique vacation aboif
I thla tine of the year. She felt >h<could
not spend a great deal for rail'

money for hotel accommodations that
could not possibly compare with the
uidenrss and coolness of her own
comfortable home; and because she
i was dclermined to have some sort of

mother's just a short car road out of (
the city. The children were delighted
