The average Lincoln girl can be de
pended upon to prove herself equal to
an emergency. A young ma nand his
girl friend were standing at the corner
of Thirteenth and O streets one even
ing last week. They had attended the,
theatre and were waiting for a car.
The young man appeared nervous and
the girl ventured to ask him why It
"Really er " he began, "I don't be
lieve I have any change."
The car was coming and the jjirl
wa sdetermlned she woul dnot walk, so
she grabbed him by the arm and said:
"Come on, trust me, the conductor
can't any more than put us off." "But
listen," he pleaded, "thlak how em
barrassing lt: "
But they were on the car, and the
conductor had begun to collect fares.
It was very crowded and the girl
looked in vain for a familiar face.
A young man sat opposite her. She
had passed him on the street several
times, and he had made himself very
obnoxious by raising his hat and try
ing to attract her attention. Here was
a chance to get even. Her escort was
getting red in the face and squirming
considerably. The masher gave the
conductor a quarter and quick as a
flash she raised her hand. "Three
fares, please," and the conductor re
turned a dine to the smart guy, who
couldn't or wouldn't sajr a word, but
got up, and moved to the rear of the
car, where he stood and softly
whistled "In the good old summer
time." The other fellow thinks the
girl who could surmount a difficulty
like that is ace high.
