"When you are six you shall have
a surprise for your birthday," said
Etta walked upon air, because she
was going to be six In just a few
days. When you are six you become
a big girl. You can do lots of things
when you are six that you can't do
when you are five.
For Instance, you can walk round
the block all by yourself, only you
must take great care not to cross. the
street Mother trusts" you when you
Ettit didn't mean o do wrong, but
slie was so busy thinking about things
that her feet carried her away. She
was thinking of the father who was
only a dim memory. He had died,
motherjiad said. When mother said
that her lip quivered in the way that
means you mustn't ask any more ques
tions. Etta wished she could remem
ber her father. It would have been
so nice to have had a father to come
home from business In the evenings
like the other girls.
When Etta's feet stopped carrying
her, she looked up, to find that she
was In a part of the city that she had
never been In before, as far as she re
membered. And et It was just as If
she knew It from some dream. She
knew that there was a mall-box on
the corner, even before she saw It. And
she. knew that there was a police sta
tion opposite and there was, and a
policeman was swinging his club there.
Etta ran as hard as she could, befeause
she was afraid of Uie policeman.
But presently she stopped In front
of a block of apartment buildings and
began to "cry. She didn't know why
she stopped there, but perhaps she
thought there were people Inside who
would take care of her. A man who
was just coming In spoke to her.
"What's your name, little girl?" he
"Etta," she answered, "and I live at
127 Shenstone avenue."
"And what are you doing here?"
asked the man, In a very deep voice.
"I'm lost," sobbed Etta, "and I want
"Well, it isn't far. I'll take you
there," said the man.
Etta slipped her hand trustfully Into
bis, and they walked a little way, and
there was their house, just round the
"Can you find your way home now?"
asked the man.
Etta nodded and clapped her hands.
"Mother, such a nice man brought
me home." said Etta, when she had
been scolded enough for going away.
"I wish we could have him for my
birthday present, to be my father."
"Don't be foolish, child," answered
She questioned Etta as to where she
had been, but Etta could only Indicate
vaguely. For several days Etta was
not allowed out but at last the ban
waB lifted, and one afternoon, as she
was going round the block, she met
the man again.
"Hello, Ettal" he said.
"Hello, man I" said Etta.
"Did you ever hear of Ice cream
soda?" asked the man..
"Oh, yes!" said Etta, clapping her
They had an Ice cream soda, and
the man told her not to tell her mother,
else she might not be allowed to meet
him ngaln. So Etta said nothing,
though she was bursting with the in
formation. But after that she often
met the man, and they always had an
ice cream soda together.
Etta's mother soon discovered her
little daughter's habit of going out at
a certain hour. One afternoon she
followed her.jEtta went dancing along,
and turned the corner. When her
mother reached there the child bad dls
For an Instant she was frightened;
then she saw her going into the ice
cream soda shop, holding a man's hand.
She ran across the street and entered,
just as they were sitting down at a
A minute later the man and woman
confronted each other.
"So it's you, Jim," said Etta's mother.
They both looked so funny that Etta
paused in the act of dipping up the Ice
cream with her spoon.
"Man, man!" she called,' "won't you
give mother an ice cream soda too?"
"If she cares to have one," said the
man. . .
"I'm going to take you home, child,"
said Etta's mother, with the look that
meant you mustn't ask any questions.
"How long has this been going on,
"I met her two or three weeks ago.
She was lost -I asked ber name, and
well, I'd have known her anywhere?'
"Man, give mother an Ice cream
soda," said Etta.
"I'm sorry we've met Jim. I didn't
know you were living here," said
"I'll move. I didn't know either"
"Oh, mother," said Etta, "can't I
have the man for ray birthday pres
ent?" asked Etta.
"It's-pretty tough, Dolly," said the
man. "But I deserved It, and of
course It's no use saying If you'd give
me a chance "
"Waitress," piped Etta, "bring; moth
er'an Ice cream soda I"
Suddenly they laughed.
"Dolly, will you have an Ice cream
soda?" asked the man very softly.
"Oh, Jim I" said Etta's mother, "I
I wanted you so much, and what
fools we've been, Jim i"
"Etta." said the man gravely, "I be

I A Girl's Face
S By JOHN PALMER
Copyright, 18J1, TVUrn Nwpper Union.
"I wish the men wouldn't pester
me so," said Gertie Miller, as she
stepped out of the shop door of Brad
bury's. If ever a girl's face was her for
tune, it ought to have been the case
with Gertie. Yet no sooner had she
left Bradbury's than she saw the men
begin to ogle her.
She passed on with a shrug of ber
.shoulders. In fact, she was too light
hearted to care that day. She had
applied to Bradbury's for an Increase
of salary, and had been turned down.
She had given notice. Afterward the
manager had asked her to reconsider.
Gertie had laughed at him.
Why not? She had a nice little
sum in the savings bank, and she
could afford to take a holiday. And
Just, now she was on her way to meet
Leslie, At the comer of Fifth avenue.
Leslie was her fancy boy, and they
really expected to be married some
day. Leslie was going to take her
out In his car. Why wouldn't a girl
feel good In that bright sunshine, go-
lng to meet her boy, even If the men
did stare at her.
There he was that little, persistent
fellow who always followed her as
soon .as she left the shop. For a week
past ho had been lying In wait for
her. Now he camo hurrying up. He
walked beside her mlncingly.
"Fine afternoon, Miss Miller," said
the little man pleadingly.
"Aw, cut It out I" said Gertie. "I
don't want you hanging around me
with your proposals. I know your kind.
It only takes a girl's ''no' to make them
think they can't do without her."
"Say, that's one for a warm dayl"
said the little man, wiping his fore
head. "I've got better than that If you
-don't quit kidding me." said Gertie.
"Kidding? See here, Miss Miller, I'm
honest, I am. Five hundred dollais '
'Kid, you make me sickl" ;nld
She passed on. The little man knew
her well enough, but to others she was
only a cipher- a cipher with the most
beautiful face that ever drew the
stares of n Broadway crowd.
"Oh, Lord, there's the fat one 1" said
The fat one was watching for her
at the corner of the block. He raised
his hat as Gertie hurried by.
"Say, what's your hurry?" he de
manded. Gertie turned around.
"See here., once and for all It's no
to you and all your kind, you cheap
piker," she said indignantly.
"Come and have a little lunch and
and something fizzy I know about,"
said the fat man. "Maybe you'll feel
more like talking things over. Whet's
the sense of acting in this nay? A
girl's got to earn her living, hasn't
"I can cam a better living than you
can give me." Gertie retorted.
Eluding the fat man's outstretched
arm, she hunted on, though conscious
that he and the little man were follow
ing her. And at the comer of the
block she gave a little cry of Joy.
For there stood Leslie.
"Great 1 Grent I" he ejaculated, feast
ing his eyes upon her beautiful face.
"Oh, Leslie," said Gertie, half laugh
ing and half crying, "those chaps sure,
have been pestering me to death.
Every time I go out Into the street
they accost me. There they are, trail
ing after me now I"
"Which one d'you like better?" asked
Gertie wrinkled her forehead. "I
guess the fat one's the better proposi
tion of the two. He's got the cash,"
she answered. "But I'm Just sick of
"Never mind If you're sick of them
or not ; you need th'o money," said Les
lie. "If you'll take my advice you'll
have a little talk with the fat one
and hear what he's got to say."
"Do you think 1 ought to, Leslie Y'
asked the girl doubtfully,
"Surest thing you know 1" Leslie an
swered. "You can't live on air, Gertie,
and till we get married we need every
cent we con save."
Gertie turned and marched mourn
fully up to where the fat man, emit
ting wheezy coughs, trailed In her
"See here, I've been thinking things
over," she said, "and if you're Johnny-on-the-spot
with the mazuma, It's up
to you. But I want sixty berries per."
"Sixty bprrlesl Whew I" ejaculated
the fat one. "Well, I guess you're
worth Jt, girlie. We got to get that
face and head of yours In our shop
window to advertise our hair tonic,
and I always Bald we wouldn't make
big sales till we got that little peach
that sat In front of Bradbury's. Sixty's
yours, and you can start In Monday.
He took off his hat and wiped bis
bald head. '
It Always Works That Way.
Two Inventors made up their minds
not to experiment any further upon
a certain Invention. One of them
came into a room and found the sec
ond continuing his eiperlments on the
said lnentlon. The second Inventor,
much ashamed, said: "I Just had n
new Idea about this; would you mind
watching the unexpected results which
The first Inventor approached to see
the results and answered: "In the
first place I could say that I think we
agreed to give this idea up, and sec
ondly, I may truly mention that I just
came from experimenting on It, and I
obtained far better results. Science

DECLARE QUOITS OLD GAME
Many There Are Who Say It la
Descended From the Anolent
Sport of Discus Throwing.
There have been International
matches between quoltcre and la the
'60s wide publicity was given In the
newspapers to a quoit match between
Billy Hodson, the champion of all
England, and Jimmy McLaren, who waa
the champion of the United State.
McLaren was a resident of Newark,
N. J., and was a Scotchman by birth.
But he represented the Stars and
Stripes. Tho gentlemen played them
selves to a tie and concluded that
neither was the better player.
There aro writers on the game
quoits, and advocates of the game whe
are not writers, who Insist that this
game is descended from ancient dis
cus throwing, and tho enthuslaatte
quoltera who believe that their gam
had this classic origin will tell yen
that tho statue of "The Discus Throw
er," by Myron, copies and pictures
which you have seen, really repre
sents a Greek youth playing at quolta
when that game was young and when
It represented strength In hurling
rather than skill In putting.
