MAN HE WAS LOOKING FOR
Mr. Cutlets Could Give Steady Job to
Applicant With Such Qual
ification. Mr. Underdone Cutlets, proprietor
of the Spoedy cafo, was notoriously
hard-hearted. Tho most weeping
witiow wiio ever gracod a melodrama
couldn't have wept a bIIco of stale
bread out of his rcastaurant without
tho price. So, when a pale and timor
ous bum approached tho desk and
made n faltering appeal, It was no
surprlso to tho lunch fiends to hear a
curt "Nothing doing. Beat it." "I'm
not a beggar," retorted tho hungry
man. "I'm willing to scrub floors or
wash dishes. I'm Just out of prison
and nobody will givo mo work. I'm
starving." Tho proprietor portrayed
a faint interest. "What were you in
for?" ho asked idly. "I'll tell you the
truth," explained tho ex-convtct "I
was a kind of a counterfeiter. I used
to take a $100 bill and split It in two
with a razor. Then, I'd paste the
halves together, so I'd havo two cen
turies, if tho sucker didn't look on
both sides. It took 'em five years to
catch mo." Mr. Cutlets beckoned tho
ex-prisoner behind tho bar. "Order
what you like on tho house," ho whis
pered. "I've got a steady Job for
you. I'll give you thirty a week to
slice tho ham for my sandwiches."

by astronomers to bo closo to tho cen

Gilded Horse on Weather
THE gilded horse that onco trotted,
galloped, pranced and dazzled on

stables of Washington has become
rare, but he is not extinct. He may bo
tarnished, but he still holds up his
head and tall. He is not so forlorn
looking as most of his brother and sis
