In H$r Column You Are a
Friend Out of It, Out
of Luck for the Week.
By CABBY DETAYLES.
r R. "BILLY" BYRNE,, for1 about
two-years,. -has told his many
friends that little Billie Byrne Cham
bers, his granddaughter, was an ex
ceptionally good child. Mrs. 'Cham
bers, who is in California at present
applied for quarters in one of CalJV
fornia's most beautiful homes. Upon
being informed that children were on
the. blacklist . of this home,' Mrs.
Chambers repeated what she had
often heard fond father, say about the
excellent " behavior of her "child.
"Really," said she, "Billie Byrne is
a lovely child and she will not cry
or disturb you in any way. She does
not pound, nor -does she play rough
like ctncst children."
Billie. Byrne was left on the first
floor while Mrs. Giambers , accom
panied madam' to the second floor.
Twenty minutes later they returned to
the first floor and bajjy, whereupon
they discovered a pumpkin pie scat
tered over an oriental rug, the bodks
tumbled from the bookcastf and pic
tures drawn in most of them.
"I will let you know," said madam.
, "Thank you," replied Mrs. Cham
bers. But madam has evidently made
no effort to communicate with Billie's
mother. . s " .
. Mr." Byrne thinks madam 'has noth
ing to hold against the child, but
laughingly admits that it all depettds
on whose balsy it is as to the gravity
of a crime.- '' r

"She has, but. that is none of your
affair" promptly snapped soldier;ofT
''Maybe you think it isn't, but I
have already pulled one pound of .red

so -that although her present fiance
was present, he . had no time that eve

His opportunity came shortly there
after, presumably, for Gabby read the
