A trio of local society favorites who
have been summering at one of the popu
lar north-shore, Lake Michigan resorts
started out In search of adventura en
day last week. It wa at that hour of
tba day when those who are not down at
the beach are lounging about the hotel
verandas, leaving the upper part' of town
safely cleared of all whoso oplnlopt night
count with a aummer girl.'
Just what to do waa tba question., Nu
merous plana were discussed, but none
seemed to . Include the deilred elements
of audacity, adventure and safety until a
two-wheel vegetable cart, drawn by
most harmless looking home and driven
by a mora barmleaa looking driver, ap
peared around the corner.
"Just the thing," aatd the leader. "Let's
bold him up and make blm give ua ride
and not pay for It." (It la well under
stood In C that all who would ride
must pay tha 10-cent fee unleas a driver
happens to be sufficiently, hospitable to a
give a "hike.") The girls wera agreed
and filed out Into tha atreet aa the cart
approached. "Dive ua a hike!" called the
leador. "Three for a quarter," responded
the driver, slowing up. Such resistance
was unexpected and promised eplce to tha
"Where are you going?" demanded tha
other girl, and tha driver waved his hand
In the direction of that indefinite locality
known aa the "country."
It seemed safe enough and the girls
climbed In over the high wheela and took
up their position standing among tha vege
tables In tha very sloping bottom of the
cart, holding to each other, tha leader
clutching tba drtver'a ahouldor for sup
port as tha vehicle started on. It waa
immensely Jolly for a few blocks, a the
I old horse Jolted along and above the
ounclng and banging of tha sprlngless
box tha blrls discussed over each other's
shoulders plans for breaking to their
driver tba news of his captivity. But for
some reaaon none of them just liked the
actual telling to him of their bandit
"Well, let's pay blm for It and then'
we won't have to tell him," said on.
"No, sir, wa started out for an adventure
and that would apoll It all," said - the
leader. "Wa won't pay him a cent."
"Well, for goodness sake, girls, do de
cide upon something quick, for this bounc
ing old cart has fairly driven these high
heels through the middle of my foot and
I can't stand It much longer," said tha
third. ' . '
"I Just knew you would back out and
spoil it all," said the leader. "Stand on
your toes and then you won't feel.lt,"
and In her disgust she was about to ad
dress tha driver when tha trto simultane
ously discovered that that Individual had
turned hla back on bis original destina
tion and waa rounding a oorner la front
of ona of tha large hotels.
"Mercy! Where are you going?" cried
one. ' .
"And tha veranda Is full, too," groaned
tha other, ' N
"Tou wretch, you said you ware going
to tha country," muttered tha leader,
clutching hla shoulder la a grip that bad
'not held a golf stick for nothing.
"That's when I thought you'se was goln"
to pay ma fur tha hike," replied tba man
as ha touched up the horso and set tha old
I cart to bouncing and rattling la a manner
that for a few moments wholly engaged
the attention of the girls also that of the
several seorea of guest on the bote!
'veranda. By tha time tha hotel and the
Immediate danger of being bounced out
lot the cart were passed tha situation
which had seemed so promising at tha out
set seemed quite reversed and as tha driv
ing party approached another of tha large
hotels even the leader had been reduced
to tears and tha most bumble pleading.
Tha driver was not so easily melted, bow
aver, and It was not, until be had driven
recklessly past every hotel In town 'that
be finally aaslstsd bis captives to alight
at tba kitchen door of ona of tha largest.
It waa a tear-stained, disheveled trto,
Indeed, that made Its way up tha back
streets and by side entrances to their own
apartments, but they had at leaat had the
satisfaction of having a real experience.
