THE CELINA DEMOCRAT, CELINA, OKEO
Little-Hat Lady B7 JANE OSBORN (Copyr)Klit, 191 S, by the McClure New.pn. per Syndicate.) Designing lints for n popular-price wholesale millinery establishment was nut Upton Troiid'n Ideal of a stuhvurt, life-sized man's occupation. Still even young "ifii with Hint liiiuilt! feeling for lino niul color that murk Uhmii or brands them ns artists before they hnve lmil a f.'ilr elmnee to determine for themselves whether they wish to follow an artist's career or not, luive to put niul lmv to ln clothed. Still I'pton illil not like to hnve peo ple know tin' nature of Ills "urtlsilo" work. In tin' morning nfter breakfast he got out his drawing lionrd ami, shut tip In Ms snug llttli' chintz room, ho would rail Into being first tln Image of heads of fair winu'ii, niul then, iis If by tiinglc, he would summon huts to crown them. Hastily nnil with quirk stroke of Ills pencil lu would sketch the pretty heads and then, with mi nuteness that mado repnxluctlon by a milliner possible, he would portray the bat. Having made some four or live sketches he would roll them up secure ly In his portfolio and, after bavins bad luncheon In the hotel (lining room, be would snlly forth to the millinery establishment, there to deliver his wares. They were not always accept ed. In fact, .he was expected only to deliver two designs a day and lm made sometimes ns ninny as six. After his visit to the milliner's he bad n good part of the afternoon free not en- tlrely free, either, for If he elected to go to one of the fashionable Indoor ice rinks he always had before blra the task of studying the women's hats, not so much to "got Ideas" for designs but to learn what to him was the hardest lesson what women thought was becoming. Upton had Ideas of his own about beauty In women's apparel, and often when he made n design that be thought was his masterpiece it was only to have the manager of the milli nery establishment push the design nslde, declaring that If he put out hats like that his business would be ruined. So I'pton would carry back the reject ed drawings and crush them Into bis waste basket and start afresh the next morning with an efTort to surpass his own not Inns about hats. Upton always worked In secrecy. Ton see he was not proud of his call ing. If the substantial, slow-moving chambermaid happened still to be set ting tils room to rights when he re turned from breakfast, be was loath to get out his drawing things, hut lin gered over his morning paper or walked Idly about his room. One day after she had left the room and he had begun in earnest, there was n knock at bis door and, without waiting for Up ton to call out "come," the chamber maid stuck her bend In the door. She held a waste basket in her hand. "You don't make n mistake, sir, do you, and throw away plcters you want?" she asked. "Some of these here pretty girl's heads, I moan, seems 'most too good to throw away." "Oh, those," Upton said as the woman held up a crushed and crump led girl's head wearing what the day before he had judged one of bis best designs only to have It condemned as Impossible by the practicnl millinery manager, "those are rubbish. I just do them to nmuse myself, as It were." And the chambermaid withdrew, drag ging her mop nnil carpet sweeper after her. The hat In question was Inspired by a mussel shell. Upton bad seen hats that were inspired by roses and sweet peas and even by canary birds. That sort of thing was trite. lie happened to havr a few shells thai he had gath ered on the sea shore the summer be fore and treasured for no very good reason, and It occurred to him one day that In (he graceful curves of the mus sel shell and in its deep, penetrating black with brown, green and blue shad ings, he might devise a hat that would be worth designing. The bend he drew for this design was the head of a sea nymph. He always made the faces first to suit the hats If the hat show ed Japanese Influence the girl was slightly slant-eyed, If she wore a som brero she was of Spanish features. The hat was of black silk above with shadings of brown and blue and the lining beneath the brim was of the shimmering gray of the Inside of a mussel shell. Upton really reveled In this hat only to have It rejected the next day at headquarters, while an In sipid little hat of dark blue straw with a cherry dangling at one side was pro nounced n "winner." Upton had not learned his lesson. In another daring mood he designed a hat that he said was Inspired by a German nir raid nt night, though the millinery manager did not even at tempt to see the similarity. He did ndmit, however, that the design was original and might do for a theatrical 4W454$Sj tosfuiui", but for his purpose- never. And that wan consigned to the wast basket, where n few day before hud gone the iiiumncI-nIicU hat and on mi ni her day n bat that had been siig gesled by (be colors and shape of a spring onion. Upton had bud them for dinner the night before and had actu ally carried one to his room, put It In water and taken his design from life. That iilso was among the failures. Upton knew that onion hut of his was original. Still some one else must have designed It simultaneously. For n week Inter lis I'pton sat at dinner he looked up and there two tuhlcb jff the very pretty golden-brown blonde who dined alono mid seemed to have few friends Uptou had Keen her often and not Infrequently recalled bet fuco und coloring when summoning up Im nglnary models In his room there, sat the little blonde wearing the onion hat. Yes, It was eactly like the hat be had designed, with the colors ns given In his sketch reproduced exactly. An ex pert milliner could not have repro duced the sketch more faithfully, nnd the little blonde was Just the model for that hat. I'pton was In n fever of ex citement, lie wanted to tell his friends of the coincidence, but to do so would have necessitated telling of his own role ns a hat designer. Then nnd this was really too much for Upton's pence of mind the little blonde nppenred one tempestuous spring night when the rain was pour Ing outside nnd the wind could be heard rushing around the window panes she appeared In the hnt that he had designed when thinking of nn airplane raid at night, nnd In the ryes thnt seemed nil tenderness nnd mildness under the spring onion hat there was now a haunting look of distress nnd sorrow. But It was un mlstiiknbly Upton's hnt. Then nppenred the real masterpiece the mussel shell bat, nnd this seemed to suit the little blonde's face better even than the others. It was a marvelous hat and It was worn by n wonderful model. I'pton noticed the eyes of other diners focussed on It and he realized then his success In designing It, though he could not guess how the hat had been made. After that Upton's models were all nllke. The little blonde face haunted him nnd the millinery manager asked him to try nnd vary the type of hats he designed. They were all made for the same type of face. Upton begnn to lose sleep. It was not so much the mystery of the mntter, though it wns odd enough to hnve another person ex tract Ideas from your mind In this way and bring Into realization so success fully your thwarted dreams. The thing was that Upton was very much In love with the little blonde nnd that the little blonde was not absolutely Indif ferent ns to his existence he might have learned to his own satisfaction from the way her eyes dropped to her plate whenever he looked toward her at dinner. Finally after she had been wearing the three hals for three weeks ha could stand be suspense no longer, and he bravely followed her out of the dining room one night, and with the manner of nn old friend bade her a i good evenihg. Not being repulsed, he i sat talking with her in the hotel re ception room. Upton was a very direct sort of per son and even before he sought to solve the mystery be told her that he was more Interested In her than he had ever been in any girl before, nnd she, sweet, frank child that she was, told him thnt she wns very glad of that, for she was lonely In the big city and didn't know any nice young men. That was encouragement enough even for n faint heart, and Upton's wns not faint. Then Upton spoke of the hats. When he told her thnt he hnd designed them, she turned very scarlet nnd said she didn't know that it wns from his room the chambermaid had got them. She said she had come to the city to study millinery, ns the only talent she had ever displayed was that of making her own hats. So she had come and hnd expected to succeed In the school until she discovered that to begin with the pupils hnd to drnw their own designs of hats nnd she simply could not draw. She told the chambermaid her troubles because she bad no one else to talk to, nnd wns nil but decided to return home discouraged when the chnmbermald brought her the crumpled drawings from one of the waste baskets. She hnd taken them to school and passed them off ns her own work. It was dis honest but she was eager to succeed. Then she had worked out the designs nnd she had taken every prize the school offered. One of her hats was going to be sent to the International millinery exhibit the mussel-shell one. The Instructors were wild over It nnd a very well-known nrtist who gnve tnem lectures on colors una ue- clnred that another wns n masterpiece in tones. It suggested nn air raid at night, he snld, though she couldn't see bow he thought thnt. "So they are masterpieces, after all," Upton sighed, and before the evening wns far spent they had not only settled all the plans for the wedding but were dreaming dreams of stnrtlng an ex clusive shop In which they would com bine their talents.

In a game following the "night before" this pitcher's turn came to work. His team went to tlu field, and the pitch er, reeling slightly, nnd mighty sick, took his plnce on the slab, lie looked Intently nt the catch er, but wasn't certain whnt he saw. He turned to the umpire, who stood directly behind hltn. "What's the catcher signaling for?" he asked. "A curve ball;", replied the umpire.

While the primary ob ject of those on the warship was to pay the respects of the American gov ernment to the Peruvian uutlon for the action by the latter lu breaking olt diplomatic relations with Ger many, nn Important feature of the visit was a game of baseball between the Mnrblehead's team mid n nine of players picked from several local clubs. The game was a pronounced suc cess In the matter of attendance, the crowd being the largest Unit ever at tended n similar entertainment, nnd while the sailor team won handily the good play by the contestants was heartily enjoyed. Callao has three well-organized teams, the Callao U. U. C the Club Sportivo Try and the Callao High School Athletic association. Lima, which is only twenty minutes distant by electric road. Inn one club named the C'lcllsta Lima, and there has been nu interchange of games. The Cnllao B. B.

The Improvement In the work of the various teams In Peru Is shown by the close scores, while pre viously the figures ran up as high ns 13 and 20 runs per game. , The high status of baseball In Peru, according to the report, is due to the intelligent nnd untiling efforts of Mil ton M.

SCHALK ON BASEBALL BRAINS Player Does Not Necessarily Need Schoolroom Education Case of Ty Cobb Is Cited.

The two women were loaded down with pnrcels and small pnekages when, right In the middle of a thrilling drama they slowly nnd cautiously fitted them selves Into two orchestra chairs nenr the middle aisle. It wns n tight fit, for neither of the Indies could be described as sylphllke In form, nnd the armful of purchased bundles contributed In no wny to fu cllitnte adjustment of the generous enrga nnture previously entrusted to each. Parcels of various sizes slid from their knees Into recesses under the sents In front nnd slopped Into the nlsle from the Inp of one who sut near est to It.

While the speaker, who sat nearest tho aisle, arranged Her hat nnd pierced lt with a couple of pins, her compan ion struggled t" convert the fruits of their shopping Into two portable pyra mids. Suddenly she uttered n little scream, nnd then whispered to her friend In nwe-strlcken tones, "I can't find my hat. I believe that man Is sitting on it." "Gracious goodness," said the other. "Ask him." "I can't do It," snld her friend. "You ask him." Thus appealed to, the bolder of the two turned to the man, who appeared to have henrd nothing of their conver sation, nnd snld : "I think you nre sitting on this lady's hnt." "I tun not doing anything of the sort; why should I?" wns the amazing reply she received. "Sit down," cried several voices to the hatted and hntless ones, from whose nrms bundles ngnln began to leak. "I am not sitting on your bat, mn'nm," said the suspected mule, "but If It will do yon nny good, I'll prove It." Then he arose, and from under his ponderous body the hntless woman re moved whnt hnd once been n towering millinery crentlon, with twin plnnncles soaring aloft, but which was now only a pancake of cloth nnd feathers. A wave of mingled applause nnd pro testation swept thnt part of the the ater, as the shoppers departed, paus ing every few feet to recapture some meandering parcel. Madge Arthur, In Buffalo Courier.
