Nino out of ten times ho must como through tho crowd and never will they havo left quite enough room for him to pass. Ono meeting I recnll, tho placo wai packed like flgo In a basket, with a little bit of a narrow aisle between humanity laden chairs leading from tho side door to the rostrum. Tho secretary stopped, looked at the path and at the peoplo nearest to him, "Some of you have got to como out before I como In. I am two man wide and It don't help matters If I try to go stdownys. Also, I warn yea not to get Btopped on." "Suppo30 we carry you up," sug gested tho nearest man, a big brawny Irishman. "Thank you, but I want you to, Btay and hear my speech, nnd that will bo hard enough even for a husky fellow llko you." ' If ho Is lato, which is very sel dom, for ho belloves in being on' time, it ' Is Impossible to persuivdo. him to enter and Interrupt tho speak er then, on tho platform. Ho al ways defers to tho rights of tho mnn who iias tho floor.

"I'll tnkb It " said the govornor. "It's nil right about tho souvenir vnlue. Tnft snt In It, Is tho mnln thing, so I know It's a damnod good chair." A brond smllo nnd a friendly nod, with, porhnps, a wavo of tho hand Is tho secretary's rosponso to tho un failing opplauso nUoiidant on his np ponrnnco nnd then he sottles to tho serious buslnoss of tho mooting, Its toning with absorption to ovory word of tho sponkers who precedo hljn nnd thoroughly unconscious of tho nttontlon diverted to hlmsolf.
