BiHy Tread well and his chum, John­ ny Haywood, were lounging in John­ ny's room. No. 42 University hall, whan than was a rap at-the door and a let- t«r was handed la for Johnny.

Til bave to; there's DO other way eat of tt for yoe,\ On Saturday morning Billy met tbt tram on which bOas Hinckley arrived. Seeing a pretty girl answering to Johnny's description of his cousin look ing wildly about for some oas, be walked np to ber and asked: \CIoasurBess T \Yes—how yea have .changed from the little boy I need t o play with!** Tve an anto outside,\ said Billy, \Let me take that wrap.\ Billy le d ber t o th e auto. Tbey got in and sailed sway. \We'll g o up on t o the bill, and 1*11 show you the college buildings. After tha t we'll do the country round about\ \I'm ver y anxious to see your chum, Mr. Trea dwell, that yo u wrote m e about\ \I wrote yo u about?\ said Billy, pricking u p his ears. \Why yes . Don't yo u remember saying that yon ha d picked him out for mer 'iDld I sa y that? Oh, yes . New I remember. Bill's a good fellow in his way. But\— i \But whatT\ \Well if I've picked him out for you where do I come in? \ \Ob you're my cousin.\' \I see. Well, yo u can't se e Billy to­ day. He's pitcher in th e varsity team, and they're playing tbe Claypoles to­ day. \ \That's too bad.\ \That's what h e Bald when your let­ ter came to soy that you'd b e down today.\ They did tbe college buildings, then re-entered the auto and sailed away into the country. Billy addressed his companion as Cousin Bess and when they were in a secluded place endeav­ ored to take a cousinly kiss, but wheth­ er fo r propriety or that Billy's manner had passed from cousinly to lover-like, she would not permit \My kisses,\ she sold, \I'll keep for my fiance.\ \What fiance?\ \Why the on e yo n have picked ou t for me, of course.\ \Humph!\ said Billy. He was about to add , \Very well, I'll take one now,\ but though t better of It and refrained. Tbat was a delightful day for Billy, and b e was accorded on e cousinly kiss at parting Hi s conscience doubtless smote him, for when Johnny returned from th e game Billy kept out of his way. However, th e next morning Billy received his chum's thanks for having sacrificed himself i n taking a girl around instead of enjoying a holiday. Several days later Johnny wen t into his chum' s room with an open letter. \What tbe dickens does thlB mean, Billy? Bess writes me thanking mo for my kindness last Saturday and says In a postscript: 'Never mind your chum, Mr. Treadwell. He will not in­ terest me.'\ \I cannot tell a lie, Johnny. Your cousin mistook m o fo r you, and I .hadn't the heart t o correct her.\ \Well I like that! An d she sup­ posed i t was I who was her attend­ ant?\ \Sh e did.\ \What does she mean by saying, 'Never mind yoo; yo u wouldn't interest her.' \ \A strict regard for truth compels me t o say that she's wrapped up in you.\ \Do you really think so? \ Of course Billy's regard for truth failed In the end, an d he was exposed. \What does Bho mean by saying, 'Never mind yon?* H \Why yo u see , Johnny, sh e was so wrapped u p in— Oh, yo u can never tell what a girl means by what she says. They ar e n o more to be under­ stood than s o many <Jreek particles.\ \H'm.\ replied Johnny, unconvinced. \I don/t think this case is so unintelli­ gible. Bess, supposing that she wa s talking to me, being really fascinated by that happy way yo u have with tho creatures, tumbled to all the lies you | told her and, like a wolf In sheep's clothing—I don't mean that exactly\— \T o tell the truth, Johnny, it was sh e downed me . Take me to se e her for a week end , won't you 7\ John , with a mock grimace, consent­ ed, promising to smooth Billy's way in accounting fo r his deception. Bu t h e only made th e matter worse. How ­ ever, Bess thought little of the trick that had been played upon her. In­ deed, she considered i t a compliment At any rate, she and Billy are no w life partners. HIS FORMAL REPRIMAND. It Waa N*t Exactly tho Kind He Waa Aakod to Administer. Dr. Simon Parrin, an English clergy­ man, waa at times absurdly absent- minded. Once while be, was visiting in tbe hom e o f a very-great ladywho employed be-large staff of.,servants, whom sh e kep t under extremely rigid control. It chanced tbat two young footmen fell eat about a pretty house­ maid wh o bad coquetted with both and s o -far forgot themselves as to en­ gage. In fisticuffs. The old countess waa Indignant. Her first intention, waa to dismiss tbe culprits, but tbey were excellent servaats, and, more- ever, tbe repentant maid tearfully In­ terceded for them. The countess re^ 1 en ted s o far aa to reduce the senteace to a formal reprimand before the oth­ er servants—a reprimand in the na­ ture of a moral lecture to be duly ad­ ministered by ber distinguished gues t At her earliest request—she was her­ self confined t a ber room by gout— Dr. Parrin, a ma n of imposing pres­ ence aad resonant voice, peamltted himself to be escorted, to the servants' bail. . On bis return she sent for him to come to ber chamber to relate the result of hla mission. * \A fine couple,\ said Dr. Parvin. \I shonld say, aa excellent match.\ \\\Match?\ inquired the countess. \What match? Has the silly girl made np her mind between them, then? I row, I thought she meant to Jilt them.both, and serve the boobies right Pray tell me, how did John and Thomas receive their reprimand?\ \John? Thomas? Reprimand?\ echoed Dr. Parvin vaguely; then, with a sud­ den dismaying flash of memory: \Dear me, I fear I hav e made a singular/mis­ take! When I entered the room the younger- servants were at the far end In a group, an d the butler and house­ keeper were together, quite near, im­ mediately in front of me, in fact, standing side by side, and—in short, madam, I married them!\ He had, indeed; bu t although aston­ ished, they were fortunately not un­ willing. They had, it happened, long been contemplating matrimony and were deterred only by fear of the coun­ tess' disapproval. Believing that she would not disapprove the act of be r eminent guest they had readily abet­ ted Br. Parvin in his error. The countess*was angry, but her anger fell chiefly upon tbe absentminded divine. She gave him a piece of her mind that —if he had been any one else—be would not easily have forgotten.— Youth's Companion. Unattainable Happiness. \i f I could get my wife everything she wants I'd be perfectly happy.\ \Shucks! No man ever Is a s happ y as that\—Detroit Free Press.

Silver Sprin Advertising Pays-Use The Sign Federal Inquiry or Railroad Strike? Faced by dcmandi from the conductors, engineer!, firemen and brakemen that would impoie on the country an*additional burden in transportation coiti oi $100,000,000 a year, the railroadi propose that this wage problem be settled by reference to an impartial Federal tribunal. With these employes, whose efficient service is acknowledged, the railroads have no differences that could not be considered fairly and decided justly by such a public-body. Railroads Urge Public Inquiry and Arbitration The formal proposal of the railroads to the employes for the settlement oi the controversy is as follows: \Our conference! hare demonstrated that-we cannot hirmonlzc our .difference! of opinion and that eventually tin matter! in controversy muit be paised upon by other and disinterested agenciea. Therefore, we propose that yeur proposals and tbe propoiition of the railways be diipoied of by one or the other of the following methods: 1. Preferably br submission to the Interstate Commerce Commission, the only tribunal which, by reason of i\ accumulated information bearing on railway conditions and its control ol the revenue of the railways, is in a poll- tioa to consider and protect the rights and equities of all the interests affected, aa d to provide additional, reveaus necessary to meet the added coi£ of operation in case your proposals are found by the Commission, to be just sad reasonable; or, in the event the Interstate Commerce Commission cannot, under existing laws, act in the premii\ that w e jointly request Congress to take such action as may be necessary to enable the Commi'sioa to consider «\« promptly dispose of the questions involved; ot S. B y arbitration in accordance with the provisions et the Federal law\ (Th e Newlands Act). Leaders Refuse Offer and Take Strike Vote Leaders of the train service brotherhoods, at the joint conference held in New York, June 1-15, refused the offer of the railroads to submit the issue to arbitration or Federal review, and the employes arc now voting on the question whether authority shall be given these leaders to declare a nation-wide strike. The Interstate Commerce Commission is proposed by the railroads ai the public body to which this issue ought to be referred for these reasons: No other body with such aa intimate knowledge ployes as wages; and the money to pay increased wages railroad condition . h«. .i.-i. .J C „ B come f rom BB 0 fa tT tource than the rates p*>\ < -i i —, muiuaw aaowieagc ef railroad conditions has such an unquestioned posi­ tion ia the public confidence. The rates the railroads may charge the public for transportation are now largely fixed by this Govern­ ment board. Out of every dollar received by the railroads from the public nearly one-half is paid directly to the en- can come from no other source than by the public. The Interstate Commerce Commission, with its coa- trol over rates, ia i a a position to make a complete investigation and reader such decision aa would pra­ ted the interests of the railroad employee, the owners of the railroads, and the public. A Question For the Public to Decide , The railroads feel that they have no right to grant a wage prcfermeP $100,000,000 a year to these employes, now highly paid and constituting « ; one-fifth of all the employes, without a clear mandate from a public tribuna shall determine the merits of the case after a review of all the facts. i j h tn The single issue before the country is whether this controversy is /• be settle 1 impartial Government inquiry or by industrial warfare.
