I'M THE GUY!
By R. H. ALLIE.
I'M THE GUY, the' clerk who
makes you wait for your change,
while he gossips with a fellow clerk,
a friend or another customer.
Why shouldn't I?
You've been waited on. It's only
your change coming. Why should
I wait till you go to carry on a con
versation? What difference does it make,
anyway? Just because you've
bought something is no reason I
should wait on. you, hand and foot,
or stick around until the change
Besides, you're not in such a great
hurry. Our store is as good a place
to loaf around in as any. Making
you wait a minute won t hurt you a
bit. And, anyhow, I can't tell if
you're in a rush.
Anyway, I don't want to bust off
in my gossiping right at that point.
I'll come around to you just as soon
as I finish.
If you don't like it. that's up to
you. Wait a minute, keep cheerful,
forget about it or go to some other
place or to some other clerk.
That's how I feel about it

Does Thunder Sour Milk?
(Copyright, 1920. br ths Wheelei
Strictly speaking, thunder does
not cause milk to turn sour, be
cause thunder is nothing but
sound and sound, of itself, can
accomplish no chemical changes.
Milk, however, will sour very
quickly in a moist, warm tem
perature, such as is almost invari
ably present before and during i
thunder storm. Persons who have
noted the change in milk which
very frequently takes place not
as result of the thunder, but be
cause of the thunder and the
humidity of the air have argued
backwards from the effect and
have concluded that the souring
was due to the thuader, whereas
it was. reaUy caused by condition
in the air itself. The same thing
is just as likely to occur after a
warm summer rain.

snuggled up to her Father and
sniffed at Kit.
"So there, Kit!" was all she said.
"There's pluck enough to go
round," said Father Vedder mildly,
"and we all need it boys and girls,
and men and women, too. It was
pluck that made Holland, and it's
pluck that keeps her from slipping
back into the sea."
"How did pluck make Holland?"
asked Kit. ,'
"There wasn't any Holland in the
first place," Father Vedder an
swered. "There were only some
marshes and some lands under!

earth around these flats; and then
they pumped out the water from the
space inside the wall, and made
canals through the land, and drained
it. And after all that work we have
our rich fields."
