Clara J. and I had taken possession
of our cute little dent in the middle
of an imposing stone pile with a Pull
man car moniker, and for two weeks
we roamed among the furniture stores
measuring chairs and things to see if
they were small enough to go ia the
however, the toy home was
ready, cad we moved ia.
Clara J.'s delight was boundless
when mamma and papa and Tacks
came up that first evening and took
dinner with us.
It's true we a'.i had to s!t edge-on
at the table and get our meat cut in
the kitchen so as to avoid hitting ecch
other on the funny bone, bat the idea
was good, nevertheless.
Surely it makes a chap's heart swell
up anil beat faster when he realizes
that for the first time in his life he's
payng house rent for himself and a
good man's daughter, oven if the
house Kn't any bigger than a minute.
Our first experiment in the kitchen
was a colored lady named Malvina.
She cooked entirely by hand, and
talked by machinery.
As a conversationalist she was a
faster tongue trotter than the janitor,
although his assortment of words
would probably get him the decision
Malvina was Inclined to be stout,
and every time it was her cue to come
in and wait on the table I got up and
eft the room, so that she could move
ihout without Injuring our guests.
In the first round Malvina spilled
i bowl of hot soup oc-r father's cow-
ick. which showed a pretty anxiety
on hT part to make his visit a mem-
Papa expressed a desire to swear,
-o I led him out to the kitchen, put
is head In the dumbwaiter shaft, and
told hint to cut loose.
He fractured the walfc and stopped

Mm feel better.
Puring the third round Malvina

the whole plateful of hot meat to
He reached for one chop with his
left eye and took the rest ia his lap.
Malvina rushed cut in the kitchen,
crawled behind the gas range, and
refused to be comforted. She de
clared that some one had "cerifly
conj'nhd" her. and then she raised
her o!ce in lamentation and didn't
stop talking for three mortal hours.
Otherwise our first dinner party
passed off very pleasantly. Mother
expressed herself as charmed with our
entourage, and papa said that with
the exception of our facilities for
landing soup at the right wharf we
were all to the good.
The next day Clara J. suggested
that we give a house-warming to our
"I'm for It." I agreed, "but you murt
remember that w have quite a bulky
bunch on our list, and as we can only
cet a sprinkling of them in hero at
one time we'll have to give a con
tinuous." Clara J. undertook to arrange that
detail, and shortly thereafter we gave
our first public performance.
Eight friends arrived at the appoint
ed hour, and as there was only room
for six of them in the fiat we stood
the surplus out In the maia hall and
told them to hold an overflow meeting.
During the first half hour we enter
tained each other by getting wedged
in the sitting-room bo tightly that
Malvina had to pry us out.
After that we made a solemn com
pact never to try to enter any roora
In which four people had already as
sembled. This plan probably saved
the lives of many present.
After a time my wife started to play
the piano, and two minutes later the
man who lived in the flat above us
sent down word that his kid was
asleep, and if we didn't stop beating
the music box he'd have us all
I sent a nice, diplomatic message
to the man overhead, in which I men
tioned the name of a place that I'd
permit him to go to.
Then the man sent the janitor after
me. I told the janitor that this is a
free country, ami he replied: "Maybe
It Is, but you can't prove it"
So w started to cut out tho music
and started a quarter limit game of
Tho players were Jim Nelson and
his wife. Charlie Payne. Fred Par
dons. Clara J., and myself.
Jim Nelson thinks that when It

one of those fluffs who whistle for
the police when they lose SO cents and
get the frosted Trilbies when they win
a dollar ninety.
Charlie Tayno plays them close to
his shirt studs and always forgets to
ante. His bad memory has saved a
lot of money for him.
Fred Parsons is one of those loud
players. Kvery time he wius a pot
he bubbles all over like a seltzer wa

without anything painful happening.
Clara J. handled iicr cards as though
they were perfect strangers to each

in carriages. He must have betn six

bursting with an Inward joy.

ARTIFICIAL EYEBALL OF GOLD
Surgical Feat That Is the Most Diffi
cult Performance Known to
Gold, for the first time In the his
tory of ocular science, has been sub
stituted for the natural jellylike sub
stanco in which an artificial eye is
ordinarily set. In an operation at the
Jefferson hospital at Philadelphia
gold was used to form the eyeball,
with the result that the glass eye
has all the appearance of a real eye.
The fixed and stony stare which fol
lows the insertion of a glass eye is
replaced by the life and light asso
ciated with the sparkling eye of na
ture. This surgical feat, one of the
most difficult of performance known
to the practise, is considered by spe

William Senseman. a fifteen-year-old
boy of Buffalo, is the person who

the same composure as he might car

hatchet he struck the concrete floor
ing. The cement was shattered and
one of the bits flew into his eye. The
tiny hit of cement pained his eye for
a time, but as the pain soon vanished,
the boy and his parents thought that
the particle had been naturally dis
lodged. Unfortunately, the sight of that eye
grew fainter and fainter. Then one
day the boy realized that blindness,
total blindness, had set in.
The hoy and his parents came to
the Jcfferron hospital. The X-ray
failed to locate the particle. Mathe
matical methods were then employed,
and the exact position of the bit of
cement was determined.
Then an incision was made, so that
the magnet could be used to draw it
out. lint the magnet had no attrac
tion for the cement and that plan
failed. IJlood poisoning was feared,
and it was necessary to remove tho
