Do you want to know who the down
right disagreeable man Is? Perhaps
you have a preconceived opinion. Tf
you aro'hard up" you'll most likely
Bay it's that somethlng-or-anothor of
a collector, who always comos to the
door whon you are In and manages to
rap differently each time. If you are
a auiet. oeace-lovlnir individual vnn'll
.probably say Its tho "kittle cleaner"
agont, that Imposing, clerlcal-lopklng
stranger, with tho marvelous convinc
ing manner of speech. If you hold
some prominent public office you may
be troubled occasionally by reporters,
and may be led to think them the most
disagreeable of persons. But listen
and I'll toll you something, and I'm
sure you'll agree with me. The most
disagreeable man is tho man who
knows something you don't know, who
understands something you don't un
derstand. Beside this monster, this
paragon of dlsagreeablenOss, those
slight bothers In the forms of the om
nipresent collector, the rhetorical
agent, au i tho Intrusive reporter Beem
to fado and to pass away Into noth
ingness. What's that? You don't un
derstand? don't understand that?
How is that possible, since you must
meet so Well, I'll explain.
Wo will suppose for the Bake of con
venience that you don't know any
thing about Gonzales. Your neighbor
Harrison does. He knows Just how,
and whore, and by whom Gonzales
was shot. He knows the story of the
quarrel, the history of It, In short, he
"knows It all." You meet Harrison,
say tomorrow morning, and without
answering your very civil and Inter
esting remark about the weather, ho
will Blng out,"Well, ho dlod last night,
didn't he? Somebody ought to plug
that nasty old buck Tillman, or else he
ought to swing. But no danger,
"Shot who? Who's shot? Who's
dead'" you ask, blankly staring.
"Why, Gonzaloa," blandly answers
Harrison. "Fellow Tillman shot, you
know. Surely you've read It in -4Jie
papor, haven't you?"
Now, there It Is! HarrlBon is a
fool, a blamed fool, but he knows more
than you, or something you don't
know, and it amounts to the Bame
thing. You have to confess it to him,
too. and how he does rub It In. Well,
It Isn't pleasant, you say, and you
haven't thought of It before? Pleas
ant! Why, jumping Jehosaphat, man,
it's awful, simply awful. You can
treat tho collector with cold disdain,
tho agent with brusque Indifference,
the reporter with affable condescen
sion, or with anything else you like.
Those mortals aro your inferiors. Thoy
court your favor. But HarrlBon ho
oh, well, there's no use talking. Har
rison la a fool a chump.
I say, I speak from experience
