at tho way In which Hose received her

"It seems strange that Hoso cannot

quite attentive to lola Davenport,"
more than one of Hose's friends was

thought, and as the short summer
days fled swiftly, sho still lingered
among them, ' I might do worse than

stood before her mirror, admiring hor

Just In time to catch the eye of an
old gentleman who was studying a list
attentively- Hesitatingly, he asked:
"I want to get a list ot songs here
they are," he began. Then thero en
sued a long search for them. The
songs were old ones and they weren't
on band, so thu old gentleman asked
If the lady would play over a doien oi
so In order that he might "match 'em
as near as possible.
Iarga store managers realize thai
the people nt the average music coun
ter are busy, hard-worked Individuals.
Thero are so many things to contend
with aside from tho knowledge re
quired of music lists, and tho ability tc
play tho piano. That la why tho sales
man and saleswoman In this depart
mont average higher wages than al
most any others In the whole storo. I
And It Is said to be tho most tire
some Job imaginable. Young lady
taking music lessons, Imagine bow It
miiRt lia tn nlnv ihn ntnnn nil Hnv nn.l I
for other people, strangers, day aftei
day, until you almost go wild. Wouldn't
like that sort of a Job, would you? It
seems a novelty to the uninitiated, but
so alck of playing does the salesgirl
become after sho has had a week ot
It that she Is only too glad to take
Job any place else In tho world.
After Wild Chase
"Pretty good team we have, eh?"
asked the Cub fan ot the Sox sup
porter, who was brushing the dust
from his clothes.
"Oh. I don't know."
"Well, that was our mascot And
the team Is traveling about as fast as
Druno, added tho Cub rooter.
"Then the team Is going some,? ad
mitted the Sox fan as he turned and
watched the bear mascot disappear In
a cloud of dust !
Druno, closely followed by the small
army ot pursuers, continued to fight
everything that came his way, until,
bleeding from a dozen flesh wounds,'
tho animal tell exhausted at West
Adams and Morgan streets.
The cub was penitent and showed i
no deBlro to romp and play until ono'
ot the club officials had tied a red
ribbon about Its neck. Then Druno
brightened up, but did not try to es
cape again. Tho cub was to mako Ita
first public- appearance at tho West
side ball grounds as mascot of the
Cubs In the afternoon.
