office, so she knew Warren had not yet
But he was only a few moments late.
She was taking off
her hat when he en

rather Impatiently to
her eager kiss, and
threw his stick and
bundle of papers
down with a brusque:

for an answer, "I'm dead tired, the city

offhand. Gad, there's a lot to be said
for the New York way of butting into
an office and seeing your man on the
spot, Instead of fooling around writing
letters to these pikers."
Helen was conscious of a grave mis
giving. She knew it was Warren's na
ture to always denounce everybody and
everything that didn't go his way. He
had been so confident of success here,
and now if he was meeting obstacles on
this, his first day.
"I've made- a few appointments for to

lasting time for things over here. Now,
let's get on; and vot s-omething to eat.
Haven't had a thing but a whiskey and

"Oh, Warren, yo'u know you shouldn't
go all day without eating!"
"Didn't have time. Punch that bel!
there for some hot water," and he strode
over to the dresser ard bean to take
off his collar.
Helen read the notice bosiOe the bell:
Maid 1 ring.
Hot water 2 rings.
Waiter , I tings.
Valet 4 rings.
She rang twice and a meld promptly
appeared with two tins of hot water.
"Well, I'll be blowed. Those same littla
tin sprinkling pots!" sniffed Warren.
''They-ve been using . them since thfj
year I."' ' - v ' ' 1 '
There was a long, o'.d-fas'.iio-.ei. marblo
topped wash, stand with two heavy white
porcelain bowls and pitchers that the
English ihotels always have- -in -thelp
Couple rooms. ,
"Warren grimblingly poured out some
hot water' in one of the howl?. "About
enough to wet canary '.bird." '
'Tftti don't suppose we could afford a
private bath?" ventured Helen.
fKuhl Doubt If you could get one.
Oueas "they "haven't a half, a dozen in
the whole house. All th's talk about
tubbed ' Englishman !s a blamed bluff.
KeVer was In .a country where they had
so darn few tubs."
Here, as he started to empty the wa
ter Into the glopjar underneath the stand,
the bowl slipped from his 3oapy haads
and crashed to the floor.
."Thunderatlon!" as he gaxed at the
broken bowl and the wet darkened car
, Helen caught up a towel and was al
ready trying to mop up the water.
."Let.jne alone,'.' he growled.. "Serves,
'em right for expecting anybody to wash
in a bowl and a pitcher. If they don't
have baths, why under heaven Jon't
they put in atatlonary wash stanSs with
running water? I'd like to tell these
hotel managers over here a thing or
Helen was still trying to mop up the
water, but the red of the carpet came
off on the towel. She had already used
"two and hesitated to take another e'ean
one from the rack. - . - .
Didn't I tell you to let that alone?" de
manded. Warren, as "he strode over to
the bell and Tang It vigorously.

"Wipe up that water over there ani
take out that broken bowl."
Helen, who had always a dread of
extra hotel charges, was wondering if
they would he charged for the bowl.
But she feared to irritate Warren by
She was ai ranging her hair before
the mirror, and now Warren elbowed
her1 away to put on a fresh collar.
"Jumping Jupiter!" . holding up the one
he had taken off. "Ever see anything
as black as that? Think they'd need
more than sprinkling pots to bathe in."
"But, dear, why I it so dirty here?"
"Soft coal. That' all they burn. Now,
there's one thing you must look up to

"Here, dear," taking the roll from the
foot of the bed,, where he had thrown It.
He had been all ready to start out,
but now . he sat down with his hat on
the back of his head, his cane between
his knees and an unlighted cigar In his
mouth, . while he looked frownlngly
through the papers. Thrusting a few of
them into his pocket he threw the rest
Into his trunk.
"Better lock your trunk there," as he
locked bis own and pocketed the key.
"These English maids are pretty honest
but. we won't take any chances. Ready?"
Out in the hall Helen turned toward
the red light marked "l-Kt."
"Oh, that thing Is slower than cold
molasses," said Warren impatiently.
"Here, let's take the stairs."
As they walked through the lobby
Warren paused with a sudden start.
"8ee here, I'm going to try something
that, if 1 were English, would queer me
for all time. I'm going to phone Boding,
ton's home. It's his dinner hour, too,
w hich makes it worse. But, by George,
I've fooled around with understrappers
all day now I'm going to get the man
himself. You wait here." And Warren
Left alone, Helen went over to one of
the large leather chairs at the end of the
lobby. A number of people, all In even
ing dress, were passing through to the
dining room, and Helen felt much out of
place in her simple tailor-made traveling
' Warren hnd told her that every one
over here dressed for dinner. But she
was surprised to see how extreme the
dres?eu were. Even the middle-aged and
elderly women1 wore very low cut gowns
and much Jewelry.
But keen as was her interest in the
English women's gowns, it could not keep
her from worrying about the result of
Warren's telephone call. What If he
should "get In wrong." as he would ex
press it by trying to reach this prominent
Englishman at his home In this way.
She had heard Warren apeak of Bodlnjr
ton. and know he was- one of the men
upon whose Influence he was depending.
OhH why fcadn't-he waited until morning?
Why had he risked everything by his im
patience? - A few moments later she saw him com
ing towards, her. As he passed through
a crowd of men in evening dress, his
light gray suit was most conspicuous.
But . there was something In-the, swift
American vigor of his movements, and In
his swinging athletic carriage that mide
Helen's heart leap with all its old thrill
of pride. . How he - seemed to stand out
and tower above those languid English
men. "Well. It's all to the good." as he sat
down beside her. "I got my man and
he's all right. I'nderstood at once. I'm
to meet him at 10:30 tomorrow. I heard
Bodington was a big man. and he is.
There's a lot of really big Englishmen
it's only, the understrappers , who are so
hidebound. Come on, now, we'd better
hustle. It's after 7, and I'm ravenous."
Outsld he hailed a taxi, and hurried
Helen towards It.
"Oh. no dear," drawing back; "can't
we lake a' bit"- """' -
But he swept her in with Impatience.
"Taxis are cheap here dirt cheap! Try
to get that Into your heaif. And for
fceaven' sake, don't be protesting every

Who is Destined
Selected by EDWARD M.VRKHAM.
There 1h food for thought In Monro
Rovce's "The Pausing of the American."
Commenting upon the presence of so
many foreign elements In our great cities,
Mr. Royce says:
"The first thing I found was the fact
that nearly all the work manual labor I
mean In town and country Is being done
by the foreigner that Is, by men nnd
women without American birth or de
scent. I have been at some pains to In
vestigate this matter, and I find, (or
example, that In the work of loading and
unloading steamers nnd all kinds of
ocean and river craft In New York.
Boston, Philadelphia and Baltimore,'
there are hardly II) per cent Ameri
cans employed. And this Is more or less
true along the whole length of the At
lantic and Pacific coast lines. The for
eigner In doing this work In the east,
the north and west, and the negro In
"The same Is true of railroad construc
tion aril repairing, street making and
cleaning, house cleaning, etc. Nearly all
the trolley conductors, Janitor and care
takers are foreigners. Concerning the
nationality of carpenters. niaons, smiths,
painters and other kinds of artisans, I
cannot speak with so much certainty.
"There Is not, and never has been, such
a thing as a real native American ser
vant, Americans have sometime been
silly enough to boast of this fact, but
we are now beginning to feel that; it
would he a great blessing to be sur
rd'iinded in our homes by people of our
own rare and nation.
"This would lie a double blending; It
would bless those who servn as well as
thone who are served. But, alas, we have
no one trained for this perfectly honor
able, pleasant and well-paid employment.
And at least half of the many millions
paid out every year for domestic service
goes out of the country.
"Living as 1 do In the chief city of
America, It seems odd that I should sel
dom, If evtr, meet or sue Americans ex
cept In a social or professional way; anl
the profe.'slonH are being rapidly fll'eJ
by men of foreign names.
"Now the people who do the work of
a country, if they be nut slaves, will in
good time pussess that land.
"Let me show yp i. how .this is done.
Ten yeais ago some Polacks fettled in
and tbout a small. Connecticut -town, not
luo miles from Manhattan Island. When
they first arrived they hired themselvea
out as farm hands and general labo-ers.
Today more than half of these Polacks
own the farmB on which they once
worked a-; laborers.

Well, ted Pa, 1 wll tell you something j
I make up for It bv brushing my hair j
about twice as much as I would ordl- '
narlly do and by keeping mv brushes ,
very clean. I always have two hair,
brushes, one wire one for brushlna out
tangles, and the other a bristle brush
for pnlifhlng and oiling the hair.' The
reason why most brushing Is virtually
useless Is because the brushes are not
kept clean enough, and one Is Just brush
ing the dust In again. ' - .
When you are brushing your hair ,to
clam It, rub the scalp over with a clean"
towel, or a piece of linen. If the hair is
very dusty, dip the linen in bay rum and
rub the rcalp thoroughly. You can use' a
soft tooth brush, If you prefer. This will
keep the scalp in good condition even if
you have to let it bo ;evcrf l weeks with
out shampooing the hair, and it's a good
way to do when you are 111 and not able
to liavo your head washed.
