"Flinn sat down." And that was Bill Flinn. We fear that Bill's nerve is not the reliable thing it was in the older days shape with the present shape. "Now there," quoth a girl who held at arm's length her last summer's straw, "is a perfectly good hat." It isn't worn a bit. All it needs is cleaning and some new trimming. I paid a good price for that last year thought it would surely do me for two sea sons. But look at It! It's got a low flat crown and a wide brim that curls up around the edges, ft simply isn't anywhere near the right shape for this year. Now I've got to go and buy one of those ugly derby things with a dinky little brim, like all the girls are wearing, if I don't want to feel that I'm a perfecv guy when I go out on the street."

But If a girl doesn't have something new every three months now, she thinks It is disgraceful. We would have thought it disgraceful to be sq extravagant when I was a girl. How times change!" We might say that the changes "make business." They do. We might also say that people don't need to enslave themselves to the styles. Some don't but they are marked per sons. If everybody doesn t look like everybody else, according to the sea son, she is decidedly conspicuous in that way. It's tiresome to be contin ally buying new clothes and to hustle so continuously to get the wherewithal to buy em.

If, in order to be convinced lhat the present pol icy of high protection is a mistake. the American pub lic simply demands evidence that work ers in the most highly protected in dustries receive no protection whatso ever, then the country will go overwhelmingly democratic this fall. The evidence is accessible. The Lawrence, Mass., strike re vealed that the men, women and children workers in the great woolen mills the most highly protected industry of all receive $5, JG aid $7 a week wages for full time. The Stanley committee showed that the workers in the blast furnaces of the steel mills the second most highly protected indii"ry work 12 hours a day, seven days a week, and art- miser ably treated and underpaid.

TAVENNER of the ways the factory and mill own ers "protect American workingmen": Boys' fingers when cut oft b7 "punch" machines in the metal work ing shops are quoted at 1200 the pair; amputated singly they are worth $150. Girls' fingers, when crushed by the machines in box factories are not paid for, as the machines are run at the risk of the girls. Women, some gray-haired, stand in the slaughter houses for ten hours daily, stripping pork and making sau sages. Women, some young and others old, work at core-making In the steel and iron foundries while they breathe carbon monoxide, a poisonous gas, liberated by the ovens in the earae. room. AYomen polish marble in many of the marble shops. This work would tax the strength of a robust man. Women, as a rule, work immediately before and two weeks after they give birth to children that they may sup port the little ones after they come in to the world; they cannot afford to lay off. WORKIXO CHILDREN. Many thousand children are legally employed long hours doing the work of adults; children can do some classes of work as fast as men, and they work cheaper, for $3 or $1 a week; in one factory the entire output ig made by children; the only adult ln the place is Pleasant Amusement.

"I'll see that the flat Is protected, dear," he said. "Tou needn't worry about it." "How? Are you going to rut some one in it? I've tried to find some one to come and stay here while we are gone, and I haven't found any one. I don't see how you can get help that I can't get" Mr. Barclay rromlsed to look after the premises himself, and the family departed. "Dear James," wrote Mrs. Barclay from the hotel by the sea where she and her daughters were stopping, "do be sure that you go all over the flat once a week anyway, and let me know if everything is all right there. I do wish you would sleep at home and not at your club." Of course James Barclay did Rs his wife commanded nay, wished and every Friday evening prior to his week end visit to his family he went tjftown to the handsome apartment in the Fair, view and conscientiously went into ev. ery nook and cranny, looking for signs of intruders.

Louise. Not even the dust disturbed." Ou oue particular Friday evening, however, his adveutures were exciting enough to cover ull the uneventful period of the past Inspections. The elevator had whirled him up to the sixth floor and be had made his customary mistake of trying to enter the wrong apartment, only to discover that he hud made tbe wroug turning of the corridor. At his own dorir, that of suit C on this floor, he inserted the key, turned it and entered the hall. It was dusk, and the place was ln semidarkness. A faint reflection came up from the light ed streets below and was flickering against the ceiling. As he bung his bat on the hall rack he beard a sound that brought him to full attention. There were voice. They Came from the dining room, and, looking down the hall, he iavf that the dining room door was ajar and that the room was dimly lighted. There was the tinkle of china, too Some one was eating In his dining room. Clever housebreakers were calm ly enjoying a feast while hia valuables w ere packed in bags and suit cases con venient to a hasty departure. Moreover, he made another discovery. The intruders were women. There were two of them, and they chattered ln French. Mr. Barclay was sus picious of all foreign languages, none of which he understood In the least. He tiptoed to the dining room door and endeavored to peep through th narrow opening What he .aw onl confirmed his fears. He caught a glimpse of the back of a hi rye Mack hat and a black gowned form. The wearer was seated at a table Imck'to him. Facing him wa a woman with a thin, dark face ajd snapping blnck eyeti. She. too. wore a hnt and was talking animatedly to ber compnnlon On tne floor witnin bis range of v- Uion be saw two leather suit cases and i i couple of traveling ba-s. ) There was no doubt la hU mind that jbi.i home bad been invaded by a pair j of clever women crooks and that tbe :bags contained the Barclay valuable lid no much of the wardrobe of hi wife and daughter a bad been left at borne. At this moment Mr. Barclay sneezed, or rather be choked a rising .neeze. and the queer sound he pro. "-iced in con-ft-quence thereof brought tbe woiuen in the din;ug room to Instant panic. Mr. Barclay fairly ran down the ball end tlipi-ed Into a clothespres and drew the dxr softly behind hiio. In dealing with women Mr. Birclay dining room and accused them of theft No; It was his idea to avoid the hys terlcal confusion that would follow such a course, lie would slip from the closet and leave the apartment to seek a policeman. The affair could be conducted with decorum. Mr. Barclay hated noise and confusion and noto riety. He would not even prosecute the fair criminals unless Mrs. Barclay Insisted upon it All these thoughts ran through hi mind while he waited there in the stuffy hall closet. He could not hear a sound from the dining room, although he applied an ear to the crack of the closet door. It seemed that hour passed as he waited for an opportunity to leave the closet Their silence couvlneed hirn that they were suspicious of discovery and were waiting for the intruder to show himself. Mr." Barclay had no desire to make a target of himself for female Bailie to shoot at for these womeu were un doubtedly armed and were dead 6bots. Mr. Barclay knew that his rotund form would afford an excellent mark for a bullet Therefore he bided his time, inwardly hoping the fair ones would be fright ened away. Anything to avoid a fuss. But Is was not to be. neavy footsteps sounded ln the. cor ridor, and a heavy hand was laid on the hall door. There was a flurry of silken skirts through the hall past the closet where Mr. Barclay was concealed, and the door of suit C was opened to ad mit another person. "Oh, officer," panted a feminine voie in hysterical excitement, "some one has entered my apartment, and he Is concealed here somewhere!" "Did yez see him?" demanded the voice of the officer. "No. but we heard him a plain a j could be. We were sittlug ln the dln- lng room when we heard a cough a man's cough! So we telephoned at once for an ofllcer!" "I'll be takln' a look around, mum," said the policeman heavily, and Mr. Barclay heard them pass into the drawing room. He shivered uncomfortably. Now somethiug was really going to hnppeu! There would be a scandal, indeed, when it was discovered that he. James Barclay, had entered the apartment of a stranger. For now he summed up the situation in this manner: Instead of entering his own suit, he had entered another by mistake! ne was the interloper in the case. The ladles ln the dining room had a perfect right there, while he was the intruder. The strong arm of the law would soon pull him from his biding place in the closet ne would be dragged off to Jail. Piscj-nre would fall upon the name of Barclay. All this would coil o pass because of his stupidity. lie would make one dash for liberty. He might gain the corridor beforo the aearcliers found him, and once in the corridor, where ho could call upon elevator !oys to identify him as the, lessee of suit C, he would defy them all. Cautiously he pushed the closet door open and stopped Into the dim hall. He crept slyly down the hall to the door and lnld his hand on the knob. In another Instant l.f would be safely in the corridor. But as he laid his hand on trie door Into the corridor several things hap pened all at once. There was a quick rush from the drawing room behind him. A pair of iron hands gripped his shoulders and whirled him around to a sudden glare from several electric lights. "Not no fast, me foitie old feller!" rumbled the voice of the law. "Father!" shrieked his daughter Louise. "Mon Ileu!" squealed the small, dark woman. Jumping up and down with excitement. "The devil'" ejaculated Mr. Barclay, staring from the vivacious French woman to his daughter and thence to the policeman, who eyed them all sternly. "Where did you come from, father?" asked Louise. "From the ball closet." rasped Mr. Barclay, realizing that be was indeed in his own house. "If you hadn't talked French I might have recognized your voice," be said accusingly. "Mme, Lemay came up to town with me today, and we decided to upend tho night here. I telephoned your office, but you had gone." Mr. Barclay khook hands with the grinning policeman and left a crisp yel low bill In the big palm. He submitted to an Introduction to Mme. Lemay and found a few minutes In which to talk to his daughter. "If you had not spoken French I would have recognized your voice and it would nver have hapix-iied." lie maintained obstinately. And nndT the circumstance we cannot blame Mr Barclay for being suspicion of all language, which bo doe not understand.
