Wednesday night, Just before I went
o bed, the big Idea came, like nn un

ug on my elbows listening to Eva
Herrlck dissertating about her favorite

had told her was the proper wuy to
rub the stuff in. Three of us, hard
workers, lodged In the upper uttlc
oom of the Fletcher's boarding house

It hadn't taken much ingenuity to
nuhu It a sort of paradise to return
to each evening.
We had each managed to acquire a
joiiify elmlr, and In these we were
jemully reposing prepatatory to
seeking sleep. Eva declared that
proper attention to one's looks meant

who got too Uttlc out-of-door exercise

then things began to buzz In my head.
I had worked pretty hard at the olllce
that day, nnd nothing had gone just
right, besides which I could not see
that It was getting me anywhere. Jim
Bryant, n clever young clerk, had been
shouting around all day about a chap's
getting out on his own, and not work

Grace Bryant, who had sometimes

before, not altogether ugly. Her Ideas,

"A revolution Is to tako placo In

Tromendous movements from the
city to the suburbs may bo expected
during the noxt few yoars. Wise
cities will begin to immediately pre

mean the extension of city limits.
"Such a revolution In living must

real reason why the mine operators
