Their theatre tickets were In their lockets, but, with that tacit undemnndln;; which tan only exist between liotom friends, they turned away from the Alhambra und made for the Embankment. Each felt that air was a necessity. The Embank ment is the only place iu London 'where it ran found. 1 For an hour, arm-in-arm, they paced the flagstones. Sometimes Glyndes hand would close hard on Hilfiuy's arm, ns though to say, "Whatever hujipenp, old man, nothing matters,"' i.ud sometimes Hilgay would stiuctze Glynde's hand tight ncalnBt his ribs, and Glynde knew that he was Fayinp, "Whoever she is, old man, wo are j als to tlK end." It is well said that the love of one man for another pannes the love of woman. ,These two never really knew what their friendship meant until the woman came into their lives. With a sudden inspiration Hilgay took out half-a-crown. "Heads or tails, Jack?" he said. "Heads!" said Jack. Teddy Hilgay uncovered. It was tails. "You must tell me her name, old man," he said. Glyude cleared his throat, took Hilgay'g arm, and started walking away from the Embankment at four miles an hour towards the Ox ford and Cambridge Club. On the steps of the club Glynde made a mighty effort. "Enid Allerton," he said, and then looked sharply round at Teddy. He saw a wave of blood fly into bis face, and felt his arm tremble. "Good Lord!" said Hilgay. "Why, whafs the Joke? What's your girl's name?" "Enid Allerton," said Hilgay. "Good heavens, isn't the world large enough for us both?" Glynde's face was twitching and his eyes blazed. "What have we done? What's the matter with us? What's wrong with the world? Why, in heaven's name, should we always come up against each other? Do you hear? Whv the blazes can't vou fall In love with any of the million other girls Bnd there are knocking about?" Hilgay Kprang to his feet angrily. "You can't talk," he cried furiously. "You blacked my eyes, and won the beastly cup. Surely to goodness ibat'g had enough, without. your crop. I. In? u; now and cutting In with the only pirl I've ever loved In this world."

"Hallo," said Glynde and Illlfay together. "Jolly night, Isn't It?" "Jolly," said Glynde. "Very jolly," said Hilgay. "You two chaps look Jolly, too." Carbls grinned at them so widely und unaffectedly that it was almost pos sible for them to see his heart. "We feel Jolly," said Glynde. "Very jolly," said Hilgay. Instinctively they both made a move towards the door. Carbls began to tweak his fingers nervously, although the beam was still on his face. "I say," he said, "you fellows, you might give me a minute if you haven't unythlng better to do. Will you, please?" Glynde and Hilgay turned back. After all, he had been to Eton with Glynde aud Cambridge with Hilgay. Betides, he sang a Jolly good song. They returned his grin with some cor diality. Then Carbls became flustered. "Er I'm I'm Intensely happy, and as you chaps have always been my Idea of men, and I've always liked you le th extremely, I should very much like you to bn the first to to know I why I'm I'm intensely happy er ' und to drink me good luck, und that ' kind of thing.

One evening, after being driven out rom under the "Overland Limited." e climbed into a box car loaded with lumber on a freight going East. Wo rinsed the door, and after pulling some of the lumber against it In inch a fashion that the brakeman looking for a rake-off (a dollar tax levied on tramps by train crews) couldn't open It. we laid ourselves upon the lumber. Soon the train began to get under headway, and at each jolt of the truclis, up and down, slde-.vr.vs and crosswnys, the lumber i would follow suit, only a little harder, ! as before It had time to settle, after enrh jolt, the next one would send it flying again Into the air. i ' Poor Bobby!

Here poor Bobby I ()f (..ipt.r3 Hnd Boasol, wlth Entertaining a Prejudice. Of all the occupations known to men, entertaining a prejudice is the most absurd. Yet the practice is almost universal. The prejudice Is usually uninvited. He comes in quietly, removes bis bat and emit, saunters up to the gues-t chamber, and prepares to Income a permanent feature of the estab lishment. You entertain him royally, strain him to your bosom, ..xhibit him proudly to every one, fight for him, de fend him. and perpetuate him. You do not even admit that, be is pi. s'-nt. "I entertain a prejudice?" you say, with be coming concern. "Never!" Uirds tif a feather Dork together. It therefore happens that If there is one prejudice present, there are others. They alwrys rom in unawares, and take their places silently anil unobtrusively. But oh, how they bang together In an argument ! A group of prejudices is invincible. They have cever been beaten. The strange part of prejudices Is that one would think they would prefer more commodious quarters. But no, the narrower the mind, the more content they are. They don't mind close quarters. The closer the better. Prejudices ore always busy. If they are not tampering with one's eyesight, they are screening the mind from the open; putting blinds on, and making it dark enough to sleep In comfortably. A man can get Insured against almost anything else but prejudices. He can Insure himself againBt fire and water and loss of life and accidents and depreciation In bis prop erty. But there 1b no company so fortified that it would take the risk of insuring against prejudice. And then no man would ever think of taking out any insurance against one, be cause he would never admit thRt he had It. The prejudice himself fixes that. The first thing he does is to make the man think he Isn't there. That is why prejudices, no matter how much damage they cause to character, are never evicted. They have come to stay.

But, poor boy, he didn't know there Is a limit in tough box-car rid ing, and thnt very night we hnd a chance to try this limit. We had climbed Into a box car loaded with rough, coated pig Iron. It's a bad proposition to ride and worse when the car 1b overloaded, as this one surely was. The springs seemed to have been forgotten when the car was built, and poor Bobby's lamen tations were an unmistakable meas urement as to what Is the limit of misery In riding in box cars.

A Peculiarity of Dreams, At to dreams, there was a discus sion at the club lunch, and one man remarked that no man dreamed ot himself as braver than lie Is.

Don't worry, and you'll have noth ing to worry you. A girl's Ideal Is naturally shattered when he goes broke. If you have any doubts about a strange bed look before you sleep. Of course the best thing with which to feather your nest is cash down. A married man can always get a little oft his sentence for bad be havior. Lots of politeness is wasted on people who are too slick to be taken In by it. Even when a woman feels she Is worth her weight in gold she hates to get fat. If wishes were horses there wouldn't be any room in the world for automobiles. Virtue, being Us own reward, you can't very well blame a man if he is good for nothing. The fellow who was weighed in the balance and found wanting must have neglected to drop a cent in the slot. Some men can't even find fault without acting as though they had discovered something to be proud of. When a fellow feels like throwing himself down aud worshiping a girl he should wait. She will probably throw him down herself. From "The Musinges of a Gentle Cynic," in the New York Times. HAM A LA NEIGI3.

Learn to relax if you would be free of lines in your face and cheat old age. Most of us keep ourselves at tension, mental and physical. Vegetables, like beets and green corn, that contain sugar do not keep well and should be eaten as soon as possible after they are picked. An ordinary polish for silverware Is made of alcohol and whiting. It will also serve excellently for polish ing plate glass and mirrors. If relaxing exercises will take the kinks out of your face, relaxation the kind best suited to your taste will remove kinks from your soul. Eyebrows should not be neglected.
