A Visit From Father.
L'lIIXC; this try it 5 month old Cy

Hue. i-r in his swivel cuair ai uiis
othoe. si.d wondered bow tbiuirs wire
oins with the boy anyway. From
s;:eu information as reached him. he
was r.ot so encouraged ns he would
have liked to be. A month was not

normal course of thinss, but that fool
advertising made another matter of it.

and balloons and sandwich men ilUo

things cost, and was sure that Kod

It. lie was worried. And he was an
noyed too. These abominable sand
wich men: he had had one set of them
.-.nested that afternoon ou the avenue,
lie couldn't stand it. Feople miht
know who were in this ridiculous 33
Soap company, and he should be well
Another and contradictory thins: was
the rumor he had heard downtown yes
terday that the Andover Soap people
were backing Kodne3"'s company, po
irz to build a plant for them. In fact,
putting one thing and another together,
he decided he wouid drop down and
give the loy a call at his ofiice. It
wouldn't be bad to see him again, and
Mary Grayson too. So he presented
hirns-elf at tLe new soap comiany'3 of
fice, on Broadway, and was kept wait
ing for his pains. A Miss Ilurke took
in H name, and he guessed that it
ranged seme excitement, for he could
hear Rodney's voice end another chat
ting inside while he cooled his heels.
When he was at lat ushered in the
place looked like a real office, en the
whole, and there at a desk sat Rodney,
ta'.kitig through the telephone. His fa
ther caught something about "not con-s-iderinc
it." and "not having any stock
for sa!e" "quite out of the question."
et cetera, et cetera, as he took a rhnlr.
Well, well." thought Mr. Martin,
rather pleased and proud. "What's
Rodney in a moment dropped the tele
phone and espied his father.
"Why. hello, father!"' he greeted him
"Hello, son!" said Mr. Martin. He
observed with astonishment that Rod
ney was very busy filing papers, open
ing and closing drawers and that every
ii"W and then he signed a typewritten
Mf-r vieSo:i1y with a rubber stamp.
"Sit down, won't you?" said Rodney
presently. "I'll be with you in just a
"Thank." said his father dryly.
"Have a clear?" said Rodney, hand
ing the old gentleman a boz in an ab
sent minded way.
-Thanks." said Mr. Martin, biting off
the end and lighting it at the match
which R"diioy held for him. Rodney
lighted one too.
Surprised to see me, I suppose?"
said Lis father presently.
".Not a bir."' said Rodney, flourishing
a contract and signing it. Mr. Martiu
had some curio-iiy to see what It
could be, this thing which really look
ed like n contract, but his son turned it
upside (Iotu and blotted it ostenta
tiously on his desk pad.
"There, that's done." he added.
"Xow. father, what can I do for you?"
"Well, my l"y." s::id Mr. Martin. "I
jist dropped in for a so'-ial call. The
fact is I've rather misled you."
"I've missed you. too. father." said
"Thought Fd have a look in and find
out how things were going," said Mr.
Fine fine!" said R .dney. "Every
thing breezing right along, of course
I'm always glad to see you." he added,
pushing the buzzer, "but right now,
father. I'm pretty busy, so you'll ex
cuse me if"
He got very busy indeed again with
"Well, if you ran spare the time I'd
like a little business talk with you,
Rodney." said Mr. Martiu. with a cer
"Certainly, in just a minut" said
Rodney, still preoccupied with his 'ta
lkers, but pricking up his ears.
Ambrose Feale. eouiing in. stopped
suddenly when he saw who their vis
itor was. Rodney looked up 1t him.
"That's all right; come right in." he
said. "Father, you remember Mr.
IV tie? Peale. my father"
"Indeed, yes, I recall very well," he
pa n Peale effusively.
Mr. Martin grulHy cut him off.
"How are you?" he said.
"A bit tired." said Peale. sitting
dotvn comfortably; "just back from
Buffalo, where we're conducting a big
-Is that so?" said Martin, senior,
"IVrlwips you've heard about it?" in
quired Rodney, looking at his father.
"No. Why should I hear about it?"
said that gentleman for l'eale's benefit
I don't know," said Peale helplessly.
"You sec, Mr, Peale bandies all our
advertising, and perhaps" began Rod
ney. "Oh, he does, does he?" said Mr. Mar
tin dangerously. "Then it is to him
1 should address myself."
"Hither or lKth of us," chirped Rod
ney. "Then both of you listen to me," Mar
tin began. "You've got to cut out this
nonsense you call advertising"
"What nonsense?" asked Rodney.
"Yes. what?" echoed Peale weakly.
"This morning there was a parade
of sandwich men in front of my house
for two hours." Mr. Martin went on in
dignantly. "I had to have them ar
rested. I got to the office to lind an
ther bunch. It annoys
"I'm sorry, father." said Rodney.
"You're trying to make a fool of me,"
said his father. "I open a letter. It's
a circular for i: Soap. I open my news
paper; you have a page ad. 1 look out
of the window; there's a billboard. I
take a train: the irttr aiologizes be
cause he's all out of 33 Soap."
"Well, of course, ali that proves how
wonderful our publicity is," said Rod
"You're a grand young bluff, my
son." said Martin grimly.
"Why. father, what do you mean?"
"I'll tell you exactly what I mean.
I've let you ramble on to see just how
far you would go, but you've been
spending a lot of money advertising,
hoping that by annoying me Fd buy
out your business to get rid of you.
Well. I'm not going to. Now what have
you got to say to that:"
"Nothing absolutely nothing." said
Peale. taking heart again, and Rodney
"But I have a lot to say.

Rodney L:3htcd One Too.
have got a trademark the catchiest
trademark ever invented for soap.
We're a growing concern. Just beeau.-e
our advertising annoys you you mustn't
think it's valueless. Why, it's so good
that capital is chasing us. Our money
is practically unlimited. Is that a fair
statement, Peale?" '
"Very fair, very fair, indee 1," agreed
Foule, dazed at Rodney's daring.
"Rlufi, son, blua," Mr. Manin re
peated. "Not at all," protested Rodney, "and
since you're so skeptical, father, 1 don't
mind letting you see the plans for our
new factory. These are the oHices.
Here is the power house, and this is
my ofiice, and here is Mr. l'eale's"
"Aren't you going to make any
soap? Who's putting up the money V"
"Now, father," said Rodney reprov
ingly, "you cannot expect me to divulge
a business secret to you, a rival man
uf act urer."
"Oh. why not tell him. He is your
father." said Peale nobly.
"Well. Feale, if you really think it s
wh" said Rodney.
"Oh, yes, I think it's quite wise,"
"It's the Andover Soap people." de
clared Rodney boldly.
Mr. Martin was at once impressed
"The Andover Soap people," he re
peated, liickiug the ash from his cigar.
"Yes, the Andover Soap people,"
echoed Peale, rubbing it in.
"You mean John Clark?" asked Mr.
Martin, getting out of his chair.
tlYes' tsaid Rodiiej.

"Absolutely," suid IVale.
Mr. Martin turned and reflectively
walked up and down. IVale very ob
viously picked up a push button and
pushed the buzzer twice. There was
a p;n:se. and tnen in a moment FHery
Cluk stuck his Load through door
on the left. Mr. Martin did not know
it, but this was ali by prearrango
nicnt with Fllery. IVale, w1k".i he had
con.e in just liu'.v, was fivsh from tu
toring Fllery in a little speech. The
idea w;ts to impress Mr. Martin over
powi ringly on the subject of the Clark
family's connection with the new fac
tory. I5.it Ambrose was. to tell the
truth, a little nervous as to Fllery 's
abiii'.y to overpower the soap magnate.
Eliery's tiist idea, too, seemed to bo
"Oh, excuse me. I didn't know your
father was here," he began politely.
"That's all ri.uht. Fllery," said Rod
ney very genially.
"Yes. come right in," said Feale.
Fllery came in.
"How do you do, Mr. Martin?" he
How are you. Fllery?" Mr. Martin
He didn't like nil this, but what was
the matter with Fllery?
"We!!. 1 it ally can't wait any long
or," began that youth. "The party
downstairs in the taxi you follow
"Yes. Fllery, yen told us that," said
Peale. shutting him off.
"Well, go.Hiby, then." said Fllery.
"Was that all you came in to say?"
Rod?iev to dc him up hastily, looking
at Peale, and Peale added sharply:
"Yes. Have you decided about that
Fllery "s mouth fell open, and a look
came over his face as of one rem
bering a lesson.
"Oh. of course. If you'll keep it open
until Monday I'll have the money for
you then." he said.
"Rut we can't wait till Monday,"
"P.ut Mr. Peale t-id me" Fllery an
Pea!- came quickly to his rescue.
"We'll see what we can do. but just
now. Fllery. we're very much occu
pied." he said, taking him by the arm
;md starting toward the. door.
"li. just a minute," said Rodney.
"You'd bt'.er give your father back
tie plans say they're quite satisfac
tory." "What plans?" queried Fllery he!p
les!y. Ciii! he tell you about them?"
Penh put in. "Perhaps after all. Rod
ney. I'd better l:vi them to Mr. Clark
myself. You remember I have an ap
pointment with LLm today?"
"Oil. yes. it was today, wasn't it?"
"P.ut father's out of town," Fllery
"I know he is. otherwise I could
have kept the appointment," said
"We'll give you a definite answer to
morrow," added Rodney.
"P.ut I don't understand." Fllery per
sisted. "Really, now. you say one tiling,
an.l Mr. Peale can.e in and"
P.ut already Peale was leading Fllery
gently and firmly to the door.
"We'll have to see you later in the
afterno in. F'oery," he said politely.
"P.ut what F 1 you want me to come
In for?" quavered FihTy.

"FJIery t.'.Kts too much," said Rod
ney when Feale came bactc.
"He is very indiscreet," Peale agreed.
"If it had I een anybody but your fa
ther he'd have, given our whole plan
"Yv'hat's he doing hero acting for his
father?" inquired Mr. Marti::. IFs ide:.s
of Fllery were und-i-going a change.
"Abs duteiy." said IVale.
"YoTi'ro not going to lake him in."
said Mr. Martin, "that pinho-id? Why.
ho didn't even seem to know what h?
was trying to get ;it."
"No. lie di lift, did he?" agree:! Peale.
"Rui. after all. h does represent
Andover soap." said Rodney.
"Civr-t soap. Andover ninety-nine
and fifty-seven hundredths per cent
pure." said Po.tio.
Mr. Martin grunted. There was
something funny here, some kind f
play aeting. though he couldn't quite
make out what it was. Old Clark's Fl
lery v.'-.is, a fool; you could sic that
with youv eyes shut. Yet a fool made
a good ge between sometimes, and you
uevtr could tell what John Clark would
be up to. Filery sounded for all the
world as if ho were trying to recite
some piece that Rodney and that fel
low Peale had taught him. And yet
what did he happen to Lie doing there
i i the 13 Soap company's olll es? That
couldn't have Peon j rearranged. ..ouu
Clark was up to anything.

Cleared a Gain of 500 Fer Cent.
So much has been said about the
way the soldiers are robbed by huck
sters who manage to circulate just be
hind the front and offer a miscellany
of goods for sale that the French
chamber of deputies has sent commis
saires to the front to investigate the
question. These hucksters are general
ly residents in the military zone and
obtain permission to carry on a trade
in objects ranging from a pie -e of sap
to an anthology of French poets as a
recompense for the losses they have
A newspaper man who had left the
army from illness determined to be
come a huckster fur a day to see what
there was in the business. His ex
periment seems to show that at the
bottom the fault, if it exists, due as
much to the inherent desire felt by
human nature to buy something when
the opportunity has not occurred for
About 0:30 one morning he laid out
his little stock on the steps of a
church in a little village of some thir
ty houses, four or live of which were
still intact. To his right he placed the
soaps, of many colors, and the per
fumes to the left, letter paper, collec
tions of songs, and in the middle knit
ted goods, socks, etc.. under which
were hidden a few bottles not bottles
containing alcohol (the risk of prison
would have been too great), but of
light drinks of legal degree of spirit.
Pay Ten Times the Price.
"How much is the mirror?" asked
his first customer.
"One franc (20 cents)."
It was a little mirror sold at 2 cents
in Paris, but it was taken at ten times
the price without an attempt to bar
gain. Ten cents for a glas.s of light wine
about as big as a thimble, yet the bot
tle was emptied in five minutes. Five
cents, a sheet of paper with Joffre's
portrait. An automobilist paid S francs

and offered two 5 franc bills. He re
fused to take change and was delight
ed with a child's trumpet to make up
the remaining -40 cents. He at once
began to blow it and his comrades to
dance to his music.

from six days' burial In the trenches
to buy sometimes meant civilization
and life. The seller was soon cleared
of all his goods. What had cost him
$10.40 had cleared $Go.20. a profit of
more than r.'H) per cent.
Before leaving the village the ama
teur huckster handed over the $Go.i:0

to add t-ome delicacies to the men's
The officer smiled and invited the
donor to lunch, adding a few words
which showed that officers are no
more free than men from the desire
to buy something, "If you have any
thing left we will may it."
REORGANIZING PATENT OFFICE
Commissioner to Act at Once Under
Law Just Passed.
Reorganization of the United States
patent office working force will be un
dertaken iniinediatelj' under a new law
passed by congress and just approved
by President Wilson. Commissioner
of Patents Ewing said that he expects
greatly to increase the efficiency of his
staff by encouraging competent exam
iners to remain longer in the govern
For years the patent office has been
regarded as a government training
school for patent lawyers who enter
private practice at about the time they
become valuable to the government.
Under the reorganization the number
of examiners in the several grades is
to be equalized. This will permit
quicker promotion from the lower
trades and, according to Mr. Ewing,
will reduce the number of resignations.
The new law also removes the limi
tation against the employment of only
two women as second assistant ex
aminers. Any number of women may
now be appointed. "Women make ex
cellent assistant examiners," said Com
missioner Ewing, "and should be ap
pointed -whenever opportunity offers."
Caves as Cold Storage Plants.
The numerous caves in Kentucky, of
which the Mammoth cave is the most
famous, may yet be turned to use for

are apparently as good as when they
