VIENNA, July 8. Do you want to

at your elbow, supported on framed

you kr.enly, you will hear strange

table and now and then you will see'i
something gleam In tranalt. Or you

It stands on the busiest Vienna
street, across from the great Imperial
hotel. Ilehlnd its plaie glass winlow
candidly open to every passerby, Is a
large room, upholstered In red leather,
with comfortably padded benches

you must know exactly to which table
to go In order to dispose of grain,
Jewels, money, women.
Yes, even women are bought and
sold, so they say, In tho Atlantis cafe.
Pretty Viennese, with their shoes run
down at the heel nnd their stockings
in holes,' are offered positions ns act

When you have seated yourself at

Herbert Young, mascot of the

The Atlantis has its personalities.
There is a little spectacled woman in
a red hat. with the manners and bus
tle of an American stenographer, who
has been reading the success stories
in the American magazines and means
to rise. Mark her well. She is the
liaison officer between visitors to the
cafe anil all the Italian profiteers.
She walks, jauntily from table to table
finding here a man who wants to sell
leather goods and there another who
wants to buy. Now sue is offering
an exceptional bargain in a lot of gold
lorgnettes. No one can estimate how
great a volume of business she does
in a single day.
Nor need you confine your interests
to business in the Atlantis: fiver
there is the Jable where volunteers
were collected for an .army to bring
down the Social Democratic regime in
Austria. Itet'ugee communists from
Hungary gather at that table and

habitues are usually very well be
naed. Revolutions are iiuiet in Cen
tral Europe just now. much quieter
than grain transactions.
