"The time 01X almost every man In active
life is terribly taxed by useless visitors,"
said a busy Ne-w Orteaag shipper to tha
Times-Democrat of that city. "I mean
people who como on foolish errands;
tedious friends wlio drop In to chat and
don't know when to go, and the small
army of agents, canvassers, solicitors and
the like, who, "in th aggregate, coqsuma
many precious hours jsvery day I have a
scheme for disposing of such bores that
works to a charm.
"The whole secret lies- in that chair be
side my roll-top desk. It Is innocent-looking,
as you will observe, but it has soma
marked peculiarities. To begin with, It ia
firmly attached to the floor, and is bo
placed that whoever sits in it face3 a
flood of light, while I myielf am In tho
shadow. Then, aain, the back is straight
and narrow; It has- no arms, and the seat
pitchea slightly forward., the front pelnjr.
half an inch lower than the rear.
"It is utterly impossible for any boro
to sit in that chair four consecutive
minutes. With female book agents it la
peculiarly efficacious, for tha simple rea
son that such callers are generally C3
or over, and no woman of that age can
sit quiet In Che glaring daylight under
the calm scrutiny of a marn in the shadow.
The coolest of them lose their self-poa-sesslon,
twist, wriggle antl soon fly tho
spot. Then, again, the strafght back and
the absence of arms prevents the occu
pant from assuming that graceful side
long attitude without which no woman 13
able to converse.
"With male bores It Is equally deadly.
All garruluos men either tilt toack whn
they are talking or lean forwaid impas
sively with elbows on the arms of tho
chair. The two poses seem to be essen
tial to a flow of language, and neither ot
them is possible here. When thy find
that the legs are attached to th floor
and search in vain for a rest for their
elbows, they lose the thread of their story,
look miserable for a moment and then
bent a retreat."
