NOTHING LOST BY COURTESY
Yet It Is a Somewhat Humiliating
Fact That Comparatively So Few
Whether In a letter or face to face,
there Is nothing In the whole big wide
world Unit does &o much to make a
good Inipwsslorr on either stranger or
acquaintance as simple, elemental, ev
eryday courtesy. It Is surprising, with
courtesy so valuable and so absurdly
cheap that more of It Isn't used,
writes Fred C. Kelly In Leslie's. If
I'm on a train, let me say, and the
man abend of me at the Ice water
tank Insists on my drinking first, or
hands, me the little paper drlnklng-cup
he was about to ii.se himself, I thank
him. I don't merely grunt my tlmriks,
as If I thought he had given me no
more than I had coming to me. I
thank him out loud, so that lie can
hear It. And at the first opportunity
J -try to get right back at him by do
ing some little favor for him. If I
haven't a cigar to give him, I at least
show that my heart is In the right
place by offering him a match.
If a stranger comes to my olllce for
a conference, I pidl up a chair for him
with my own fair hands. When be
gets ready to go, I accompany him to
the door. Thus his last recollect li
of me Is my courteously bowing him
If you haven't a lot of acquaintances
I feel sorry for you. The fault- Is
probably your own. There must be
people all about you who would enjoy
knowing you as much as you would
enjoy knowing them. As a sporting
proposition there is nothing to equal
the fun of seeing bow many people
you can inako your frlepds. They're
valunble, tangible assets. If I wore
called upon to give good advice In
few words, I would say: "Know a lot

'The word vaudeville Is a. corruption

DiiHselln, a fuller living In VI re. They
were popular and soon spread all over
