9 ELSIE BOOSTS ARMY AS STEADY JOB FOR YOUTHS After Seven Months Under Military Regulations Miss Janjs Says Soldiers Are "Regular Guys." r BY ELSIE JANIS. -If mother had only had the fore thought to bring me up a regular guy I certainly wquld consider . Uncle Sam's army is good steady job. This war has taught us a lot about armies. Personally I never went in for soldiers before the war and I thought the army was mostly brass buttons and bull. i But now having spent nearly seven months traveling in army-ars, - eating army food, obeying army or ders and falling in love with the en tire armyI know better, and I think a lot of the fellows who .kicked about things "over there" are going to miss the same things over here. Take for instance, Private , who hated the routine and regula tions. He will find the same routine - and regulationsVhen he comes back : to trying on shoes for peevish women or adding up figures in books ythat only tell of the money some one else is making or losing. , in the army he took orders from his superior officers, but he knew that if he made good, he might be giving orders in a few months. But as. office boy in a waist manufactur ing company, wat chance has the poor boob gokof sneaking np the ladder when the guy who monopo- - lizes the top rung is a regular Pot ash or Perlmutter whose business it is to grease the rungs and keep expenses down? The pay in the army is good. The , private soldier is admitted to be the "top 4S" because without him there ain't going' to be no war or oeacel The American arrriv will al ways have food enough though the cost of living goes so high that St. Peter has to throw it back. The army will always have a place to sleep even though common mil lionaires can't afford a hall bed-room in a NeW York hotel, and the army will always be resected because that's what an army is for to de mand respect and to get it not to figlft for it all the time, but to bt: ready "m case anyone is. doubtful. If I werea boy struggling in the whirlpool of wage earners today I would volunteer for the army of oc cupation. I would see France and .Germany and maybe Russia. il'm for the army all the time, and I advise every man I know to get into it. .M i-Afc !

CHAPTER II Something About Manderson "Our Manderson biography hap pens to1 be well up-to-date," replied Miss Morgan, drooping her dark eyelashes as she considered the .posi tion. "I was looking over it only a few months ago. It is practically ready v for ' tomorrow's paper. I think the Sun had better use the sketch of his life they had about two years ago, when he went to Ber lin and settled the potash difficulty. I remember it was a very good sketch, and they won't be ableto carry much more than that. As for our'paper, of course we have a great quantity of cuttings, mostly rubbish. The sub-editors shall have them as soon as they come if."" Then we have two very good portraits that are our own property; the best is a drawing Mr. Trent made when they were both on the same ship somewhere. It is better than any of the photo-graphs;-but youTay the public pre fers a bad photograph to a good drawing. I will send them down to you at once, and you can fthoose. As far as 1 can see, the Record is well ahead of the situation, except that you will not be able to get a special man down there in! time to be of any use for tomorrow's paper." Sir James sighed deeply. "What are we good for, anyhow?" he in quired dejectedly of Mr. Silver, who has returned to his desk. "She even knows Bradshaw by heart.".- Miss Morgan adjusted her cuffs with an air of patience. "Is there anything else?" she asked, as the telephone bell rang. "Yes, one thing," replied SH Tames as he took up the receiver. "I want you to make a bad mistake some time, Miss Morgan; an everlasing blpomer just to put us in counte nance" She permitted . herself the fraction of what would have been a charming smile as she went out. "Anthony?" asked Sir. James; and was at once deep in consultation with the editor on the other side of the road. He seldom entered the Sun building in person: the atmos phere of an evening paper, he would say, was all very well if you liked that kind of thing. Mr. Anthony, the Murat of Fleet Street, who de lighted in riding the whirlwind and fighting a tumultuous battle against time, would say the same of a morn ing paper. It was some five minutes later that a uniformed boy came in to say that Mr. Trent was ,on the wire. Sir James abruptly closed his talk with Mr. Anthony. "They can put him through at once," he said to the boy. "Hullo 1" he cried into the tele phone after a few moments. A voice in the instrument replied: "Hullo beblowed! What do you want?" "This is Molloy." said Sir James. "I know it is," the voice said. "This is Trent." He is in the mid dle of painting a picture, and he has been interrupted at a critical mo ment, that's all!" v "Trent," said,-6ir James impres sively, "it is important. I want you to do some Work fof us." ' t "Some play, you mean," replied the voice. "Believe me, I y don't want a holiday. The working fit is very strong. I am doing some really decent things. Why can't ybu leave a man alone?" "Something very serious has hap pened." "What?" "Sigsbee Manderson has been murdered shot through the brain and they don't know who has done it. They found the body this morn ing. It happened at his place near Bishopsbridge." Sir James pro ceeded to tell his hearer, briefly and clearly; the. facts that he had com municated to Mr. Figgis. "What do you think of it?" he ended. ' -v. ''Come nowl" urged Sir James. "Tempter 1" "You will go down?" There was a brief pause. "Are you there?" said Sir James. "Look here, Molloy," the voice broke out querulously, "the thing may be a case for me, or it may' not. We can't possibly tell. It may be a mystery: it may be as simple as bread and cheese. The body, not being robbed looks interesting, but he may have been.outed by some wretched tramp whom he found I sleeping in the grounds and tried to M 1. t.i. .L. l c u:l. i.. KltK UUli XI s uic aui I Ul IU1UH lie would so. Such a murderer might easily have sense enough to know that to leave the money and val uables was the safest thing. I tell you frankly, I wouldn't have a hand in hanging a poor devil who had let daylight into a man like Sig Man derson as a measure of social pro test." Sir James smiled at the telephone: a'smile of success. "Come, my boy, you're getting feeble. Admit you want to go and have a look at the case. You know you do. If it's aiiything you don't want to handle, you're free to drop it. By the btye, where are you?" "I am blown along a wandering wind," replied the voice irresolutely, -'and hollow hollow, hollow all de light." "Can you get here within an hour?" persisted Sir James. "I -suppose I can," the voice grumbled. "How much "time have I?" "Good man! Well, there's time enough that's just the worst of it. I've got to depend on our local cor respondent for tonight. The only good train of the day went half an hour ago. The next is a slow one, leaving Paddington at midnight. You could have the Buster, if you like Sir James referred to a very fast motor car of his "but you wouldn't get down in time to do anything tonight." "And I'd miss my sleep. x No, thanks." The train for me. I am quite fond of, railway traveling, you knowI have a gift for it. I am the stoker and the stoked, I am the song the porter sings." "What's that you say?" "It doesn't matter," said the voice sadly. "I say," it continued, "will your people look out a hotel near the scene of action, and telegraph for a rbom?" "At once," said Sir James. "Come here as soon as 'you can!" He re placed the receiver. As' he turned to his papers again a shrill outcry burst forth in the street below. He walked to the open window. A band of excited boys was rushing down the steps of -the Sun building and up the narrow thoroughfare toward Fleet street. Each carried a bundle of. newspapers and a large broad sheet with the simple legend: MURDER ' OF SIGSBEE MANDERSON Sir James smiles and rattled the money in his pockets cheerfully. "It makes a good bill," he ob served to Mr. Silver, who stood at his elbow. Such was Manderson's epitaph. (Continued Tomorrow.)
