COULD TflUST HIS MEMORY
Mr. Wanaroaksr Able to Turn at Once
to Any Book on His Miles
A, couple of weeks ago John Wana
maker did something which he said he
had not done before In his 55 years ex
perience as a merchant, lie opened
i his store on Sunday. That w ill Inter
. est you even less than something else
which Mr. Wanamaker did that ufter
,jioon and which was told ine hy one of
the dozen persons who were present,
.writes "GirartT in the Philadelphia
.Public Ledger. There , had been a din
ijner for a party of distinguished Jap
anese visitors, and Mr. Wanamaker
volunteered to show the oriental gen
itlemen the Inside of his store.
.Before departing from the big gran
dte building Mr. Wanamaker said to
ithe. chief guest:
VBaron, there is a book here I wish
you. to have."
Naming another book, Mr. Wana
.maker walked to another case and got
it. .Then he proceeded to present to
each gentleman present a volume or
two, In. each Instance naming what he
.Intended to give before he went to a
bookshelf to get It. Which feat of
memory . caused my Informant to re
mark when he related the incident to
"I have seen John Wanamaker do a
.great many extraordinary things in 40
.years, but his ability to pick here nnd
ithere a book out of many thousands
Amazed me the most."
Carried Boy on Cot Fifteen Miles.
When a physician at Red Oak Top.
Va found that Robert Anderson, nine
years old, had appendicitis, 20 men
volunteered to carry the boy on his cot
15 rulles to a hospital, where he re
ceived an operation. The men took
thir turns at the cot.
Men are inclined to boast, yet ac

HADN'T BORED GLADSTONE
Statesman, in Fact, Thoroughly En
joyed Himself While "Heavy"
Recitation Was Rendered.
Sir Charles Wyndham. the actor, was
once asked to exploit a certain reciter
nnd gave an "at home" for the pur
pose, at which Gladstone was present.
It was a terribly hot afternoon, and
the reciter announced that he would
give "Elaine," by Lord Tennyson.
After the recital Sir Charles went
to Gladstone and said, "I'm afraid
you've had a trying time with all this
"Not at all," was the reply. "I have
had a charming afternoon. I thank
you for asking me, and now as I am
quite refreshed I can run back to the
Sir Charles was elated, for the rath
er heavy "Elaine" had been a success
after all. He rushed to the stage,
where he found his guests waiting for
him and for tea.
"What have we done to you," they
cried, "to give us 'Elaine' on n day like
this? Surely there was something
lighted to choose."
"Lighter!" echoed Sir Charles.
"That's the trouble with you society
people you're all so frivolous. I gave
you a classic treat. Why, Gladstone
has Just told me he had a delightful
'Of course he had," was the rejoin
der, "for he was asleep all the time."
Are They Really Masters?
"Can you tell me where the prohi
bition of bigamy Is referred to in the
Bible?" asked a Sunday school teacher
of small children.
Willie Immediately answered: "Yea,
teacher. 'No man can serve two mas

Louis Blrsky the real estater
remarked, as he seated himself oppo
site Barnet Zapp in Wasserbaure's
Restaurant. This observation had
been provoked by a notice In the bill of
fare that on nnd after a certain date
the 40 cent regular dinner would be
increased to 50 cents, and Zapp looked
up from a plate of lokthen soup to In
dorse Birsky's sentiment with a nod so
emphatic that drops of the greasy fluid
were scattered all around.
"I bet yer," Zupp said, cleansing his
mustache with his lower Up. "Only
this morning 1 see it costs Marcus Fast
two thousand dollars for an automo

claimed. "And Harris Shapolnlk must also got
to pay for some diamonds fifteen hun

Birsky wagged his head from side to
side nnd made Incoherent noises
through his nose indicative of shocked
"I always thought them two fellers
was pretty salng with their money,"
"A couple of tighter propositions
don't exist at nil," Zapp agreed.
"Then what do they go to work nnd
buy all them things for?" Birsky asked.
"Who says they bought 'em?" Zapp
a iked. "All 1 says is that Marcus Fast
pays two thousand dollars for an auto
mobile and Harris Shapolnik pays fif
teen hundred dollars for some dia
monds, understand me, but it was Ja
cob J. Rebfield who bought the auto
mobile and Sam Titz bought the dia
monds. Also 1 could prove it to you,
black on white."
Here he produced a clipping which
read as follows:
Rebfield & Pltz. Schedules In the
bankruptcy of Rebfield & Pits, cloak
and suit manufacturers, were filed in
the office of the clerk of the Unrted
States District Court yesterday. The
principal creditors are as fellows:

Kosciusko Hank (secured) 1O.C12.S0
M. Fast & Co 280.45
II. Shapolnik & Son 1,520.00
"What did them Franco-American
people pay for?" Birsky asked. "A
"I couldn't tell you exactly," Zapp
replied, "but you could reckon twenty
five hundred dollars that Mrs. Reb
field must got to go to Palm Beach a
year ago, understand me, and another
couple thousand that Bertha Iitz is
the Belle of the Boardwalk in Arverne
last summer, Birsky, and that's the
way it goos."
"Them two hoys certainly lived be
yond their means," Zapp said.
"And it aint their fault that they
didn't live beyond Marcus Fast's
means and Harris Shapolnik's means
also, because when a business man
starts in to live beyond his means,
Birsky, he's got a downtown con
science and an uptown conscience.
That's why when Rebfield buys his au
tomobile on Broadway and Fifty-seventh
Street for net cash, he didn't
worry himself how much he owes to a
couple of Canal Street woollen houses
like Marcus Fast and Harris Shapol
nlk." "Ain't it funny how most of them ex
travagant fellers is got such an elegant
reputation for good pay?" Birsky Bald.
"On the West Side above Forty-second
Street," Zapp amended. "And
that's what I'm telling you, Birsky.
Marcus Fast pays for Rebfleld's auto
mobile, Just so sure as if he would of

made out a check to the order of the
feller that sold It, Birsky, and all them
diamonds Bertha Iitz wears should
ought to be hanging on Mrs. Shapol

don't know it, Birsky, but Sam Pltz
stole them diamonds from her."
Birsky shrugged nls shoulders depre-catlngly.

"Ton ought to be careful what you
are saying, Zapp," he advised. "From
a big mouth many a feller comes to
pay fifty dollars for a smart lawyer
to get a libel case thrown out of court
"A rabbi would tell you the same
what I do, Birsky. The difference be

lives beyond his tneuns is that the
sneak thief robs only from perfect

sky protested. "According to you. If
a feller buys a couple thousand dollars
goods which he needs It In his busi
ness, understand me, on credit sixty
days, y'understand, mnd then he
couldn't pay for 'era, understand me,
he Is robbing already. An idee 1"
'I didn't say no such thing," Zapp de
clared. "All I ays is if a feller buys a
couple thousand dollars goods which he
needs in his business on sixty days'
credit, and he couldn't payfor 'era on
account he is buying for net cash an
automobile which he didn't need nnd
couldn't afford, understand me, then
he Is robbing, Birsky, nnd that's all
there is to it." ;
"How do you know , Rebfield gives
cash for the automobile, Zapp?"
"A question I" Zapp exclaimed. "Au
tomobiles Is always sold for cash. Bir
sky, In especially to fellers which
couldn't afford nn automobile, under
stand me, because If such n feller
would buy one on ten days' credit only.

'There U Moro Feller feels Like Committing Murder the Day After On
nnd in between times his rent or life
insurance falls due, understand me, it
would take so much enjoyment out of
riding in the automobile, that right
away he finds out the linings ain't up
to sample or the buttons ain't sewed
on correct or something. The automo
bile dealers figured it right, Birsky. I
wish the waist business was on a C. O.
D. basis, too. Because a concern which
sells goods for cash, Birsky, never gets
no cancellations from nobody."
"Never mind, Zapp. You would see
that pretty soon the automobilers
would sell on credit, too. People ain't
going to be so crazy to buy automo
biles, now that gasolene is shoved up
o high," Birsky said.
"Well, that don't change my plans
any," Zapp replied, "because the way
the waist business is after Christmas,
Birsky, if I owned the Hudson River
and automobiles was run with water,
I couldn't afford a pushcart even."
"Even so, Zapp, there's lots of fel
lers in the delicatessen business which
is obliged to run automobile deliveries,
and for every penny they've got to
pay more on gasolene, they stick two
cents a pound on pastrami oder Frank
furters." That again is something for a
manufacturer of sodamlnt oder pepsin
tablets .to worry about, not me, Birsky.
Anyhow, Birsky, if cigar stores
couldn't sell cigarettes to minors un
der the age of sixteen, there ought to
be a law prohibiting dllcatessen deal
ers from selling their machshovos to
adults over the age of twenty-five. In
fact, Birsky, if Kansas and Maine
would go prohibition on delicatessen
Instead of schnapps, Birsky, not only

the day after one delicatessen supper
than ten minutes after a hundred high
balls, and don't you forget it. And
that's only one reason why Rockefeller
ain't doing no harm by putting up the
price of gasolene, because when I am
getting heart trouble from crossing

noon, I wish automobiles was run, not
with gasolene, but with benedlctlne

"That's where you're making a big
mistake, Zapp," Birsky said. "Nowa
days for an up-to-date feller, in a way,
an automobile Is, so-to-spenk, practic
ally a necessity."
"A four thousand dollar automobile
is a necessity I" Zapp cried.
"A four thousand dollar car I ain't
speakln' about at all," Birsky con-
tinurd. "He-cause for a thousand Jol
lars only, Zapp, you could get a car mil
thirty-five horsepower already, five
passenger budy, electric self-starter
and lighter and everything up to date.
Such a car is a gen'wine bargain at
one thousand dollars."
"If you could afford the thousand
dollars, Birsky," Zapp said, whlch th
way the realestate business is dead
nowadays, Birsky, you've got about at
much chance as I've got to buy a thou
sand dollar automobile,"
Birsky hid the lower one-third o
his blushes In a cup of coffee.
The fact is," he said at last, Tt

and ril show you them lots I was talk
Ing to you about."
"You mean them lots they threat
ened last month to foreclose on you,
Birsky?" Zapp asked.
Birsky's face grew a shade more
"I paid 'em two hundred dollars a
bonus, and they gave me a three-year
extension," he explained . huskily and
gulped down the remainder of his cof

"And do yon think yon would got
the money when the three years Is
up?" Zapp insisted.
"I don't know," Birsky retorted, "and
I don't care, Zapp. Because we only

"Sooner, even," Zapp concluded, "1
you ride fast enough in automobiles."

It Is a well-known fact that pearl
fishers and divers do not live long.
They often have to dive for 100 feet
or more without any special outfit, and
the strain wears them out before their
lives are really half over. From a
depth of 100 feet a pearl diver usually
brings up two oyster shells at a time.
It is exciting work. The diver never
knows whether he has brought to the
surface a shell Inclosing a priceless
gem or not. The Malay pearl divers
are, perhaps, the finest In the world.
When he Is going to dive, the Malay
slowly lowers himself down from the
side of the boat to the water and takes
several breaths, each breath getting
deeper and deeper. Finally, he takes a
tremendously long breath, turns head
downward, and plunges Into the ocean
depths. In two, three or perhaps four,
minutes his form is seen in the water
coming up. His face Is turned up
ward. His strong hands beat the wa
ter away from under hlra In vigorous
downward sweeps. His face looks ter
ribly strained. At last, breathless, ex
hausted, he reaches the surface and is
hauled into the boat, where he lies
quite still for a few moments, appar
ently exhausted. But in comparative
ly few minutes he is ready to plunge
