casionally a blooded animal Is brought
to this locality which should com

Tho sothor ovonlng when wo wore
walking Into town from out near tho
Lincoln Highway brldgo, a number of
cars passad Ua without saying "Want
a rldo" and wo got to noticing that
most of thorn had about ono scat
ornpty. Wo woro quite woary of walk
ing and as wo had plonty of tlmo to
think while coming In wo got to won
dering why thoy didn't glvo us a lift.
Nothing a walker llkoa bettor than to
bo takon In by a car. As Ivsald, wo
got to wondering why and bo went
ovor to see Ed Davis about It. Uo was
thoro in tho storo talking about quar
antine signs on houso whore sick
people are but wo couldn't wait for
him and his Indiana friends to get
through so wo asked him about empty
automobiles not taking woary walk
ers in and ho said ho didn't know. Ho
said If ho had a car and saw a weary
walker ho would take her In. That
amtlsod us but Ed's Indiana friend
iprobably wasn't paying nny attention
for ho never evon smiled. We Bald
that wouldn't do us any good and Ed
said, ho didn't know as ho Intended to
do us any g6od. Ho said wo couldn't
expect hlin to tako In ovoryone along
tho road or ho would havo his car
overloaded before ho got to town. We
eald ho might tako In his fastest
friends when ho saw them having to
walk along tho dusty highways and ho
looked real sorry and said that's
right. Then ho sald.lt really didn't
matter so much sinco ho didn't havo
a car hlmsolf anyway. Then Ed's
Indiana friend asked us If wo thought
tho drivers of empty cars recognized
us and wo said wo woro sur0 they did
not becauso -wo always pulled our cap
down over our faco to keep tho glare
of tho hoadllghts out of our oyes. Ed
said that didn't look reasonablo to
him and we askod him why and ho
paid If we wcro coming to town and
tho glaro of tho headlight got In our
oyos tho car must be going tho other
way and that ho bot wo pulled our
cap down ovor our eyes because woj
didn't want the driver to recognize
us and see that wo did not havo a
car. of our own and so must walk like
othor common folks. Ed had present
ed atnow side of tho question and
while, wo were thinking it over Ed's
Indiana friends told about hearing otj
a man In Indiana who stopped and
took a walker In nnd tho walker prov
ed to bo a bum and rode clear homo
with him and tho man had to tako
him Into tho house that night for fear
If ho loft him out he would run off
with tho car boforo morning. Wo said
wo would bo afraid of that to and Ed
said that probably was the reason so
