These directions 1 nftcrvvnnl learned wore

that something had hacncd nnd telegraphed

Tlin llend of (lie llotmn linn flu tun run
A m llujrr.
1 had occasion yontonlay to git a few
"things" ncivKsary In a well regulated hoimo
hold, 1 went Into a hirgostoronu thocorupr,
where, ns I gathered from their Advertise
ment.s, they were morv than satlilhsl If they
inaild any w hero near a living profit. Un
scruplousso called coitipetltom, they clnlnieil,
were trying to undersell thom, but, so far,
theso one horse concents had received only
tho well merited scorn of a dlnciimluntlng
and long headed public. I felt greatly
pleased at getting on the track of n place tha
llrst thing vvheru they were content to low) it
fair orcontngo. 1 couldn't help fooling sorry
for the small concerns that were struggling
nlong nnd trying to keep tipnppearanetK, but
then they should have known better than to
have stinted in.
There was nwldo stone sidewalk around
the stori , nnd beside the other people them
were wwonil coachmen standing nlong tlin
outer edge wealing long, gloomy expressions
on (heir In 'vs. Personally, I anivisl on the
elevated road, which Msot along but a few
blocks away on someivhat shorter stilts, It
seems to me, than It docs farther uptown. I
wont In and Ivgaii to look nrottud. I wanted
to get a iiuiiiInm of things, lint all 1 could
think of wastwo yards of felt, so I went over
ton man who looked like Hamlet when Pohv
iilus Is talking to him nnd nuked where they
kept their felt. Ho told mo, but looked as If
things were getting worse and worse In the
state of Denmark.
I went to tlm plnco to which Hamlet di
rected tun nnd found (Wiling tackle nnd rub
ber dolls. Hamlet' advice to the purchnscr
Is not satisfactory. However, I found tho
felt dowu tniont at last and sat down on one
of tho cloth covered door knobs w hlch stood
along lu front of the counter mounted on
sticks. The young lady who had tho man
agement of the felts was very busy matching
a piece of green felt ton blue tamplofora
customer, so I had time to rest. I didn't see
anything morn of Hamlet, but Corlolanus
wont past unco looking for Vnlsciaiis. Down
the kid glove alley 1 noticed King Richard
II meditating on tho melancholy fate of sov
ereigns nnd tho probable relative demand
that there would be next week for four and
six button gloves respectively. Kverythlng
seemed to bo Intended for rest. They up
ottrcd to want to encourage MS)ple to stay
and grow old with them. I saw that tho idea
so many folks labor under that life Is short
isndelnsiou. I sent word to tho manager's
desk by one of the ciushlmyj that if there was
nny charge for sitting on that button after
the llrst hour that I would make it all light.
The young l.uly got around to me at last,
however, and asked mo what color 1 wanted.
I didn't know that 1 had lust the sample
while I was pawing around in the grass In
tho front viird before I left homo looking for
my street car tickets. 1 told her I thought I
wanted u soit of dark green, though. Sho
said she didn't see what I could want of dark
grieu felt. I acknowledged that 1 didn't
know what I wanted it for, but I wns protty
sure that that was the color. She said that
If I had lost my sample sho didn't see what I
could know about what 1 wanted, nnd I had
to admit that it wus home so. Then sho
showed mo somo red felt, nnd jelluvv felt,
nnd purple felt, nnd various other colored
felts. My mjnd kept wandering back
foolishly to tho dark green, bill if 1
tried to sny anything nbout It she soon
put me on the right track again, nnd spiead
out some light rose colored felt before me.
She was just ready to cut mo olT n pleco of
this when thu crazy notion that I wanted
dark green got tho better t,f mo again nmi I
toldlur that I must havo it. I apologized
for my freak, but I explained to her that 1
would never bo happy till I got it nnd sneaked
homo with it under iny ovefcoal rml lihl It
sj that tio one w.uld ever .'.now- that I hail
bought tint k green felt just because I wanted
it when I could Imvo got light rose colored.
Sho scattered slabs of felt right nnd left for u
minute or so nnd dug a roll of the poor, crack
brained dm I: green out of tho bottom of the
pile nnd cut olf two yards. She said It came to
fikBI, reduced from f.i.Til,';, nnd I gave hern
?. bill. Sho gave the felt to a girl in a
pigeon hole to tie up nnd put tho money and
n cheery little note to the cashier, saying that
she had innde u sale nnd hopi-d he was enjoy
ing the same blessing, in a little round tin
js'ppor box with a fur collar mi each end of
it, nnd dropped it down tho end of a siunll
brass eaves spout w hich came up by the side
of tho postolllco box tho girl was in. She
pulled n sort of a thing around over tho top
of the braivs tnlw and it licgan to hum a kind
of a sad, subdued tune, nnd I judged that all
I rested my elliows on tho counter nnd
thought nnd watched the end of that brass
money digesting apparatus for a very long
time. I saw my mistake, now that ftwui
too late. I had often been warned from
youth up rigalust putting my money in where
I would never get it back, and this must be
what they meant, I had often wondered
when my financially sharp fricndhad told
mo that I must never put my money bit)
anything vvheio I was not certain of speedy
returns, what they were teferiing to; this
was evidently it. Tuno wore on nnd tho
brass pipe hummed tin lumo sad refrain
down in its throat nnd refused to give up my
i't. I wouldn't havo cued so much if I
hadn't been t jhl so many tunes not to put my
money into nnything 1 dt lu't know nnythlng
about. Time went on and I hung to the one
legged stool, though I had long ago given up
hoH. I noticed tVi-it Cardinal Wolsoy was
preparing to go homo while Macbeth was
having a boy takedown the bample laeo in
his depai tiueiit. All nt oneo tho organ plio
chicked and liegan to breathe hard. The
gill pulled something nnd tool; out the ioi
er box with the whiskers. When tho joting
lady opened It nnd gave mo my change, con
slstiug of nine pennies and some other coins,
I walked hick from the brink of financial
ruin as one in a dream. Fred II. Cuiruth lu
