V A (jtoi (Eltrifltmaa It so lt By t Charles Frederic (Copyright) ■*T HAS BEEN my I observation that I most of the trouble I that many men get p into comes from r doing things for other people. man who makes ■ note generally meets it; and, if he indorses one, often meets that, too. At a pic nic it is the man who offers to carry the water who gets his feet wet, or sits down In the squash pie. It is the good-natured man who has the most need of good nature, for he Is always getting into trouble that is properly the property of somebody else. Christ mas, especially, offers many golden opportunities to the fellow who willing to oblige. There was the case of Henry Car ruthers, for example. "Fine!" said Henry, when he received an invitation to spend Christmas with the Joneses at a suburban villa ln a suburban vil lage. Jones had been an office mate of hls. Then he married and, hav ing made a little money, some say by the marriage, he retired to the subur ban villa aforesaid. Carruthers re mained a bachelor, a toiler, and a city dweller. But he would have been will ing to change at least two of those conditions if he had dared to think that Jones' sister, Miss Abigail, would be willing to change her title from "Jones" to the somewhat classier one of "Carruthers. "Come up and spend Christmas with us," wrote Jones. "It will be rather a quiet Christmas, but Abigail will be here, and we shall try to find some thing to keep your time and your mind occupied. A quiet Christmas had no terrors for Henry. And there was Abigail. So he wired a day letter, the substance of which was "Yes. The train was on time, and so was Henry. They whizzed him out to the bungle-oh in the dusk and a wheezy car. Abigail, looking lovely, met them on the porch. Welcome to our city," she said. "But I'm afraid you will find it fright fully quiet here. Not when you are present," replied Henry gallantly—followed by a sudden realization that maybe that didn't sound as gallant as he had Intended. At the dinner table Jones unfolded the great plan. "We've fixed up the in »» I» << il L m. W'l \.i k » Jk / V r Abigail Herself Led the Rescue Expe dition. jolliest scheme," he declared with en thusiasm, "and you are just the fellow to put It over for us ! "Just the fellow 1 " echoed AbigalL "You see the Williamses live on the other side of the square. Their back lot backs right up, to ours, with just the alley between. Now, they don't know you from Adam. Of course, we told them about you, and they want to meet you, but they don't know you are coming down. The Williamses, you see, are our closest friends, and we have lots of fun with each other. Now, we are going to put something over on them—something nice, you under stand, and we want you to help. The Williamses are the only people we give presents to, outside the family, except yourself, of course, and a few others. Well, the girls have a lot of jimcracks fixed up for them. We are going to have you take them over— But I have never met—" "Oh, that's all right. I've got some Santa Claus fixings here, and we are going to doll you up as Santa—and they don't know your voice or any thing, and it sure will surprise them 1 "I see," said Henry weakly, with .003 per cent enthusiasm. "I just go up and ring, and walk in—" "Oh, no, better than that I here and I'll show you. followed him to the window, see that window, that basement win dow, or ls it too dark? Yeh, that's the one. You just sneak over quiet ly, drop in, walk upstairs and just sur prise them right in the library, or wherever they happen to be." ' "But the window will be locked," said Henry, seeking an avenue of es cape. "No it won't. Mrs. Williams told the madam here that they had coal coming today—so it will be open, for Williams won't think to lock it until he goes down to, fix the furnace for the night. You see, that window's where they put the coal in. Somehow, this statement did not add to Henry's pleasure. But when Abi gail asked if it wouldn't be great, the foolish man said that it would. Half an hour later, in the darkness, a srtitnger might have been seen ap proaching, hidden by the shrubbery, the rear basement window of the Wil liam« domicile, evidently with burglari ous intent. An old overcoat of Jones' - u ■ Come The victim tt You »» * muffled about him concealed a red cos tume of some sort, and a bag. The bag contained sundry packages with sundry sharp corners, but this was known only to the mysterious stranger. He found the window unlocked, ac cording to specifications, but to his as tonishment It opened outward Instead of inward. He also made a horrify ing discovery. He had expected to drop lightly to the basement floor, find his way to the stairway, whose loca tion had been described to him, nnd make his way upstairs to surprise the family. But Jones had said nothing about a coal chute. Yet here was a chute with sides that were unsur mountable. A flicker of flame shin ing through the mica of the furnace showed that the way was clear. But what would a coal chute do to his Santa Claus outfit? To chute or not to chute, that was the question. Pate decided him. He distinctly heard the click of the back gate. Good gosh I" thought Henry, "here comes somebody ! pause for further thought, he seized he bag and shot the ehute Into the unknown. He landed In a coal bln nearly empty of coal, but plentifully gar nished with dust. A minute later an interior door opened from the region above, excited voices were heard, and a ray of light shot Into another part 3 « * « a ft * a "Good Gosh! Here Comes Somebodyl" And, without A Vi li of the basement. The chute seemed to offer the only protection, into it he climbed and lay there qui etly. Back Oh, it's just the man with the coal," said a female voice above. And the door closed again. Poor Henry now pondered what to do. He couldn't go up ln the state he was. He had never seen any pictures of St. Nicholas represented as an Ethi opian. Anyway, his perils were over for the moment. Were they? There was a footstep outside and into the chute came pouring a bagful of mixed nut and egg. Henry had quite for gotten about the mysterious click of the gate, the coal man and all, and had no way of knowing, of course, that the holiday rush had made that coal man late. There was no time or way to escape or dodge. The coal, sliding merrily on its way, came with just enough force to give him 40 kinds of head aché in 40 different parts of his head, and brought along with It enough dust to finish the ethnological transformation. It also carried him back into the bln. He picked him self up, found the comer of the bin most removed, and witnessed, as best he could in the dark, the rather un interesting ceremony of putting in a ton of coal. He wanted to sneeze, but would not permit himself the luxury. He had to cough, but luckily timed lt to coincide with the passage of a bag ful of coal down the chute. He won dered when the coalman would reach the last bagful. When he reached it, Henry immediately knew, for the ac commodating coalman carefully hooked the window, on the outside, and snapped the padlock. Meanwhile the fun-loving Jones fam ily anxiously awaited the return of Mr. Henry Carruthers, alias Santa Claus. Half an hour. "They must be having a jolly time." Forty-five min utes. No remarks. An hour. "Some body run over. No, we'll all go." , In the Williams' household nothing unusual seemed to have happened. They were delighted to see the Joneses, of course. After five min utes, a happy Idea sent Jones home to see If he had locked the door. His investigation really concerned the Wil liams house Instead. The back win dow was securely locked—on the out side. There was no sign of Henry in the neighborhood. Half an hour later Jones made a clear breast of it. Abigail herself led the rescue expedition. Henry would have preferred to see anybody else. An hour In the bathroom, and a suit of Williams', and Mr. Carruthers was presented. Ifc was really a very merry party that Christmas eve, after all—al together too merry, for Henry. Yet, had Henry only known it, sym pathy ls often the awakening of love.

Pretended Deafmutism. A French medical journal, Le Ca ducée, reports a strange case, the sim ulation of deafmutism by a young sol dier, following the explosion of a great shell. The case Is given by M. Ber ruyer. seemed to be an absolute deafmnte. Before the explosion his speech and hearing were normal. He had at once been told that he would recover, in formation that did not appear to af ford him any special pleasure. Close watching did not disclose any evidence of simulation. He was then placed in a state of seml-conscionsness with chloroform, and in this condition conversed without difficulty. A dress ing was applied to his throat for the psychic effect. Afterward he admit ted recovery, but exhibited no delight over his good fortune. It was sup posed that the original shock was gen uine and that after this came the thought of deliberate malingering In order to keep out of the fighting line. He had played the part of a mute for six weeks. In consultation the man Spooning Wastes Time. Spooning is a waste of time," Dr. Joel H. Hildebrand, chemistry profes sor at the University of California, told his freshman class, added : Physical attraction should be sec onfiary. Men and women should meet on the common ground of intelligence and fellowship. Their Interests should be genuine. To commence a friendship with spooning puts the relation on a false foundation. Both are concealing their better selves, their real interests behind the mask of conventional silli ness. Then he »• It is the beauty of the soul and not of the skin that a man should seek. No marriage founded on sense beguilement can be happy, for these charms are short-lived. The bond should be such that a man could love his wife even though she became blind and her hair fell out, for these exter nal beauties are the smallest part of the foundation upon which true love rests. A wife does not need to be a Venus." it Dangerous War Souvenirs. Gun shells are not proving a suc cess as souvenirs if we are to gauge the new custom by the number of ac cidents reported In the newspapers. The last affair of this kind seems to have occurred in London, England, near Paddington, at the home of an army captain away on foreign serv ice, who, as a polite attention to his wife, sent her a shell with a time fuse, obtained as a trophy from a field of battle. On receiving It the lady gave it a prominent place in the drawing room, but not knowing its dangerous character omitted to warn the servant girl. The latter, by some clumsy ma neuver with the broom, managed to knock it over, and it exploded, frac turing her right leg and elbow and demolishing part of the house. Use of Artificial Gas. That the use of artificial gas as a domestic and industrial fuel is in creasing and that its utilization for illuminating purposes is decreasing la Indicated by a report recently issued by the department of the interior, which covers the use of the product in 1915. It is pointed out that 266,204,248,000 cubic feet of gas was sold during 1915, and that the value of this production amounted to $173,832,132, according to statistics collected by C. E. Lesher of the United States geological survey, and 128,103,346,000 cubic feet of coal gas was consumed during the same period, valued at $48,882,007. The statistics show that 30 per cent the gas was used for illuminating, 48 per cent for domestic fuel and 22 per cent for industrial fuel. Aluminum on Skis Lengthens Jump.
