In a drenohing rain, under the very limited protection of tlie entrance of a tull office building, Tom Swain rubbed elbows with a fidgety little woman who said she vowed she had never seen anything like that rain­ storm before in her life. Two or three offlce boys, marooned In the same place, took the matter with complai­ sance. They didn’t exactly relish standing there shivering with turned’ up coat collars, feet wet and nothing to look at save the steaming backs of other wayfarers and the gray skies and grayer buildings; but compensa­ tion came ln the fact that they were escaping the ennui of offlce work somewhere. Tom Swain, on the other hand, had Important work waiting in his offlce aercas tlie way, and important work was always interesting to him.\ He was contemplating trying to hg.il a taxi from where he stood, dashing owl to the curb and driving across the street and part way up the block to his office. It seemed rather absurd, talcing a taxi to go across the street. Just then the fidgety old woman sighed heavily. t Tom loqked at her la commisera­ tion, keeping j an eye bpen for pos­ sible vacant taxis coming by. “Could you tell me the tlrael’* she siilca. \I hate to open my raEbcoat to get nt ihy watch.” Tojp, having been caught without a raincoat, did not especially objeet to drawing his watch from his waist­ coat pocket. He told her tha time and she' gasped. “Oh, my soul and body,” she ex­ claimed. “I want to cutcli a trahi in ten minutes. I haven’t ally time t<> sparo, now, and I’ll have to get a tail at tliat. My niece works over In tb» Townsend building. I was Just going over there with her rubbers. Matilda'? so cureless, never will wear them 1n the- morning unless It is actually rain­ ing. It was only showery this morn­ ing when she started. I had to come to the city on my way np state and so I brought them with me, thinking I’d slop at her offleo over there la the Townsend building—” “I am located In the Townsend bonding,” said Tom. \Terhaps I could uoe that they get to her—I—” ,rBless you, bless yon,” atld tlie old woman. \My soul, there’s a taxi--\ and with that she made srfrantlc sig­ nal to the driver, casting the bunUe containing the rubbers teto Tom's hands, and dashed to the curb. “CJuick ! The terminal!\ she crleti, and the door closed. Meantime Tom had caught the rub­ bers and cried after her, “'but what is her name? Tour niece— Matilda what?” He followed her snylng. \Ma­ tilda what?” but she was too eager to speed off In the taxi to notice him. By this time the shower seemed somewhat abated, and seeing no other taxis not occupied Torn Swain strode across the street. He reflected ns he went thnt Ma­ tilda was a fairly unusual name. Perhaps there would be some clue on the paper in which tlie robbers were wrapped or perhaps Matilda had mnrlted the rubbers with her full name on the Inside But on dose ex­ amination after be reached his offlce he found no means of identification. He asked his stenographer if there were any young women first■nnnif»(l Matilda working for their concern The stenographer was quite sure tliere were not but she’d look on the card catalog. She returned some time later saying that there was no one so named. He asked the elevator starteT, asked a postman who went the Fonmls of the building dally, asked a friend he bad iti another business located in the same office. Re ended by posting a neat little typewritten notice ln tbe various elevators. It read: \■Will a young lady named Matilda please call at room 988 for a pair of rubbers that belong to her.\ It was of course not likely that the owner named Matilda would call that day and it would probrrbly be sun­ shiny when She did call- But still Tom had it rather on Us conscience. He had offered to deliver ihe rubbers and it was no doubt his fault that he had not learned Matilda’s other name. Days passed and the neat little package containing the lubbers re­ mained on the floor Of thfj wardrobe In his offlce. When hjs lind opened the package he had discovered *hat they were decidfedly small rubbers, slender and the sort that women wear over liigh-heeled shoes. This gave him something of a clue. So for a few days more he came arid went ln the elevators of his building with his eyes Intent on the feet of the young women who rode back and forth to rtietr work. If he saw a pair of slender, small feet bearing high-heeled slip­ pers or pumps he regarded them as at least likely to belong to his Matilda than those of the girl with flat, broad, large feet. One day, however, he chanced to See two pretty faces and was so in­ terested In them that he failed to no­ tice the feet to with which they were related. The two girls were talking, making pTanSTor Tunch together. Then ns they went to get off tlie elesatbr nt the ground floor one said some?* thing that Toro did not hear a»ri the other one answered: “Oh, Matilda I\ Tom followed them wltb til spetdt, them f«it &nbanj&ne4 at speaking ,tol them. Waiting frj more, courage be' followed them to a popular 1 cafeteria. Tljece he ngaln heard the less at­ tractive of tbe two attractive girls exclaim, “01, Matilda!” Reticent as he felt about speaking to her he felt that it was really his duty to do so. He waited until t.hey had finished luncheon—meantime having taken his own luncheon in the place— and while Matilda stood waiting for her com­ panion to pay the checks he addressed her. ( “Pardon me, but I believe your hame is Matilda.” The girl laughed, “Well?” she said, obviously not wishing to commit her­ self, “I have been looliiiig for yon for weeks,” he 89.1 d, '‘You see my office is in the same building with you.” Then he explained hurriedly the story of the rubbers. The girl said, “That was mighty good of you to take the rubbers.” She smiled swe«tly and gave Tom the name of tlie firm for which she worked so ttfcat he might send the rubbers to her. , But Tom didn’t send the rubbers, Ihe (lellfeed them personally the next day at a fe-\v minutes before one, for one o’clock waj apparently the hour that the yonng ivoman called Matilda ate luncheon. Then Tom met the girl several tlm<8 ln the elevator and somehow It canfe about that he per­ suaded her one day to have luncheon with him. *‘I’I1 be glad to have you come along nad eat at the same table at the cafetesrla,” she said. “But I won’t let yon treat me.” “Perhaps when we are better ac­ quainted you will,” said Tom and nqt long after tliat he asked for permis­ sion to call upon her ut her home. On the occasion of that call Tom told the girl that he loved her and wanted to marry her. \Matilda dear, you do rare a little, don’t you?\ lie said, with more ardor than originality. “But my name Isn’t Matilda,” said the girl. “1 think I love you very much, but maybe you'll hate me now. I cheated. And those rubbers never would have gone on my feet. They are much too small. You see there was a funny little woman—not at all young and -very cranky—who used to work at our office. She did have little feet and was terribly vain about them. Well, she left Just a littte while be­ fore I first wtw you, and we used to Joke about her because she had been so vain nn<E rramky, nnd we got Into the habit of laying ‘Oh. M atilda!’ Just as a little exclamation. And— Well, I cheated, that’s all. I was afraid if I said I wasn’t named Matilda you'd never look at me again.” “You wonderful girl 1\ sighed the perfectly cajtlvated Tom. “But I sent hack the rubbers,\ con­ tinued the girl. “1 got Matlldn’s ad­ dress and Goat them by special mes­ senger. So tltat’a all right—’’ “But what Is your name?” ex­ claimed Tom. “Mary A no.” said Hie erstwhile Matilda, anc3 Tom said that was much prettier. W ill Make a Noticeable Reduction in ■CJost of Toll Calls Costing From V t ’e n ts t o $ 1 . 0 0 . B) accordance with the revenue act o£^ ^924, the Ne\v York Telephony company has discontinued a_t mid­ night v standard time, on Ju]y 2 -when the. act became effective, the collec­ tion of the federal tax which has been imposed since April 1, 1919 on tele­ phone toll calls and certain types of •long distance equipment. The re­ moval of this tax will mean a con­ siderable saving -to telephone users. Ih e 1919 fevenue act plac&d a tax of five cents on all tefephone messages fox which the total charge is more than fourteen cents and nest more than fifty eents. A tax o f ten cents was levied on all messages for which the telephone company’s rate is fifty cents or more. In addition the act imposed a 10 per cent tax on leased wire service and on extra telephone facilities used for long distance pur­ poses. ' , The saving resulting from the re­ peal of the revenue act will be par­ ticularly noticeable on telephone calls for which the charge ranges between 'fifteen cents and one dollar, as the tax applied on such calls meant an added payment of from ten to twenty percent.

Tropical P lant Eats Mice A most unusual plant, that reverses the natural order of things by eating animals, has recently been put on dis­ play at the london horticultural hall tn England. This extraordinary meat-eating plant fs a native of tlie tropical East Indies. Its principal prey Is,mice, which are attracted to It by a very pungent odor emanating froia the month of the blos­ som, formed Into almost a perfect hole. The mice crawl lato this opening and nnturnl hristli'S on the petals close about the vMlhi as It makes an at­ tempt to escape. Digestive Juices similar to those secreted in the stom­ achs of animals are given off and the victim is slowly eonsunled. . It has long l>een known that plants breathe and sleep, eat and drink much the same as animals; but this is the only plant lajown that eats meat* (Zelden^ I f ecu, I lelieve happiness Colnes oiit of do­ ing things Por oth'et people.
