to know how to go about It to ptok up a

had a achem that Worked to perfection. It
was no trick for Jo to go out and pick up a
Job any tlm he felt Uk working. Tbo only
essential to the acheme was a newapaper Ave
or alx day old.' And ta Justice to Joe It must
b said bar that h felt Ilk working often
enough to prove th scheme aa absolute suo-
! got so that I thought Joe
aiuat either be a lunatla or a bright young
man. They do aay that the two extreme
meet sometime, for what a man would want
with a fiv or gin day old n wapaprr In look-
mt ror a joo waa more than I could under.

hundreds of hungry unemployed who ara
dally on the lookout for work got through
with, chasing down th ndat '
- But Joe landed the Job every time. .
" O, I'm Juat lookln for a Job. I told you
that before!" waa -all th anawer I could
licit from him to my occasional Jolly that
h v.-a gaalng at a paper old enough to do
for carpet layers. And that la aa much aa I
could ever draw, him out on the subject He
cot th lob. however, and. what ! bum.,
few week later after th ouatomary pr.
llmmary perusal of th tal " want ad "
he would land another. ' .
A for myielf, I mut con fee that he Lad
m completely Quailed, Insofar aa any aolu
ttoa of th matter was conoemed. I knew .
that th paper, h uaed waa th Sunday
laau. and that1 hla calla wer mad th fol-
lowtng Friday and faturday. but that waa
all. It I her, aa Ih lawyer would aay,
that I had to rt my aa. And If It hadn't

would t!U be resting. It certainly nay to

article which recently told ua about new' job
being so hard to hold, and that the crlala

I had Jo' little achem laid bar. It waa all
