To Try to Scale Roof of Continent in Plane
Anchorage, Alaska. Mount McKIn
ley, tin.1 highest elevutlon on the North
American continent, will he scaled for
perhaps the first time soon, if the at
tempt of Carl E, Kffelson, former army
aviator, and C. ,T. Uncles, Anchorage
newspaper man. to land in an alrplune
on the frozen plateau at Its summit
proves successful.
The start of the trip will he made
at McKlnley station, at the ent'unce
to the park, where there is a natural
landing Held. Other landing places are
also being located In various sections
of the park.
Entering tbe park, they will spiral to
an altitude of perhaps ".o.OOO feet, re
connolter over the plateau, several
miles square at the summit, and, If
the Ice permits, usually make a land

"Filling Stations" Are an Institution
on the University of Chicago
AVhat do you do when your fountain
pen runs dry at the most inconvenient
possible moment as It always does?
If you are a student at the University
of Chicago, you patronize the nearest
filling station; the campus Is sullied
with these quite as freely as the Lin
coln highway with tilling stations for
the tourist. A penny In the slot ope
rates the machine, and enables the
owner of the most voracious pen to ap
pease the thirst of his Instrument.
The machine works with self-filling
pens ami with the old style that fills
from a dropper provided the user has
his own dropper. The dropping of a
coin and the turning of the handle re
leases the Ink from the reservoir, and
the fluid flows Into the right hand
well, whence It can be sucked up by
the iien'ltself of by the dropper. A slot
In the upper left hand corner of the
outfit contains a wtper with which any
damage done by spilling or slopping
may be repaired. If one drink turns
out not enough, a second penny will, of
course, turn the trick. Scientific
Worries of Mr. Toodles.
Movies were very real to tender
hearted Mrs. Toodles. She always
wept freely through the sad scenes
and considered that her favorite ac
tress was nothing short of an angel
with a baby stare. So when she came
home looking grave Mr. Toodles knew
that something serious had hnppened.
"What's wrong, my dear?" asked
"I don't like this. My favorite hero
ine is playing a vamp." she replied.
"You mustn't let that worry you. It
Is only pretense. You know that."
"Maybe so. But where did she learn
to smoke cigarettes!"
Big Fees for Trucks.

"Miss Monroe I say, Miss Monroe I"
George Fairchild was impatient as he
stood at the threshold of his office
about to depart for a luncheon at a
business men's club.
"H'ni?" absently h'med Miss Mon
roe, looking up from a folder that was
apparently more absorbing than her
employer at the moment.
"My, that must be interesting,"
Cleorgo Fairchild said a little testily.
"Listen, please, to what I have to
say, and don't forget. I don't expect
to be back until three or four. In the
meantime some boys will come over
from the Boys' club. They are fitting
up their new headquarters and they've
made an appeal for old furniture and
pictures and things. No one will be
home at the house my aunt is still
at the shore and It's Hannah's day
"I went over tilings last night in my
rooms and I put some things In the
hall between the bedroom and my
study. They are things that are pretty
battered and I'll never want them
again. Glad to get rid of them, In
"In the other hall, from the study
to the main corridor, there are some
things to go to the repair man. Here's
the key to the house, and if the repair
man rings up and says lie wants the
things, lock up here and go over and
show him what to take and when the
boys come with a truck take them
along and show them their things.
That's perfectly clear, isn't it, Miss
"Um-hum," said Miss Monroe with
lagging attention as she took the keys
offered by her employer.
"What's got Into you?" asked
George. "Ever since I've been run
ning for mayor you've seemed so alb
sent-mlnded Just when I need your
help and sympathy most." There
seemed to be something of boyish dis
appointment in this complaint not
quite in part with Mr. Fairchild's re
lations as employer. But If Laura
Monroe noticed it she did not show it
"Maybe it's the weather," offered
"You're sure you understand and
you won't forget the keys?"
"I understand all right," was Laura's
rejoinder, and as George Fairchild
closed the door she delved even deeper
Into the map that unfolded from
blue leather cover.
The map that proved so absorbin
showed the various electoral divisions
and ward boundaries of the city, with
the voting population of each section
numbered In by hand. Laura had
borrowed It from a lawyer friend of
Mr. Fairchild, who supposed it was
George who had asked for It.
And now Laura was doing what
Fairchild had avoided doing all along
going over the ground of the city
step by step figuring out to a nicety
the votes that would be cast in each
district for her employer.
She laid hands on paper and pencil
beside her desk, drew a rough little
diagram, Jotting down some figures
did some lightning calculation In her
active young brain, and then sat mus
ing with the map open in iter lap. She
was not entirely optimistic.
Then the door opened and two
young boys of sixteen or so shambled
in, awkwardly dolling caps and edging
to the wall before speaking.
"Mr. Fairchild said he had some
thing for us," they said.
"We're out with a truck should we
go over to his house to get them?"
Laura explained that she would go
with them.
"You don't want to to sit in the
truck with us, do you?" grinned one
of the boys. "It's Just an old truck
you know without any seats. Us boys
are Just sitting on the bottom."
"Of course I wunt to go with you,"
said Laura with a smile. "You
wouldn't want me to walk, would you?
And If I start to slip out, I guess you
boys can manage to hold me In?"
"Sure thing." "You hot," from the
two boys.
"Mr. Fairchild is so Interested in
your club," Laura fibbed on the trip
to the old Fairchild homestead on the
outskirts of the city. "He was telling
me about your plans wants to come
around and visit you some night.
After he's mayor maybe you'll want
to have him come and make i speech."
"He'll never be mayor," was the vc
dlct of the youngest boy, looking very
wise. "He's all right but he Isn t
pulling any votes In the Sixth ward or
In the Third. Us fellows knows. I'm
sorry, if he's your boss, but, honeM,
Isn't he stuck up? Now, he wouldn't
a done a thing like this I mean rid
ing over in this truck with us."
"It's Just exactly what ho would
have done," lied Laura. "Why, he's
the most un-stuck-up person I know -and
you can Just tell those men up
In the Sixth and Third wards that 1
said so. I guess the poor girl that bai
to work for him must know as well
as any one."
Laura deftly used the keys at tbe
Falrcluid door and led the gang of
four boys they would need all hand
to move the things up the wide old
stairs. She made a quick Inspection
of the collection of furniture In tbe
two passageways.
"If there's anything In that bunch
there that you want," she said, point
ing to the group that Mr. Fairchild
had picked out for his donation, "you
can have it, but it's mostly rubbish.
But here are soma nice pieces tbis
library table and these easy chairs and
this big reading lamp and this lounge
and and, yes, he said to let you
take this set of Dickens, if you like
do you boys like Dickens?"
"Gosh, do we!" said one of the
boys. "Say, we'll eat that alive. Gee,
but this is swell furniture. Fairchild
Is some prince here, boys, let's give
three cheers for Fairchild, the future
mayor I"
And the lofty ceilings of the old
mansion resounded with the quavering
but lusty cheers from the young
Laura detained the boys after their
last trip upstairs.
"Come on into the pantry," she said.
Mr. Fairchild said there was a cake
or something. The cook's out. but he
had her leave It for you thought
maybe you'd be hungry."
Greatly to Laura's relief she found
a freshly made chocolate cake In the
pantry made, to be sure, for George
and some political cronies he expected
after dinner but Laura cut into it
bravely and then poured out four
glasses of milk from a quart she found
In the refrigerator.
"Gome on, let's sit down in the din
ing room and have a real spread," she
suggested and when they had as
sembled she lifted her glass of water
there wasn't milk enough to go gen
erously around and proposed a toast
to her employer: "The man who isn't
stuck up," and this refrain echoed
through the rooms of the old house.
Laura let the boys out of the house
and then remained only long enough to
wash the dishes and put the dining
room to rights. She had never 'been
inside the Fairchild house before and
she was tempted to make a little tour
of inspection, but she was also eager
to be back in the office.
She had Just time to tnke her place
at her desk and to settle back com
fortably In her chair when her em
ployer returned.
"The boys came," she said, "and,
goodness me, I think I may have made
a misl.ike. Did you say to give them
the things In the corridor between the
main hall and the library?"
"Great Scott, no!"
"Didn't you say something about
giving them that set of Dickens?"
"Lord, no those boys wouldn't have
any use for Dickens."
"The boys thnt I saw would and,
oh, Mr. Fairchild," said Laura with a
little tremble in her voice. "I nm so
ashamed of myself. I gave them the
wrong things. It was all my fault. l!ut
they were so appreciative and they
cave three cheers for Fairchild the
future mayor the man who isn't stuck
up. I'm sorry I'll pay for the furni
ture and Hbooks."
"Those boys come from the Sixth
and Third wards," snid Fairchild.
"They aren't cheering for me. Those
wards are going against me, sure
thing. That's why I didn't want to
waste any really good furniture on
that club house of theirs. Don't you
see, Miss Monroe?"
Laura let her pretty head hang.
Then a large tear trickled down one
cheek. George sprang to her side,
hesitated a moment, then laid a strong
arm on her shoulder.
"Miss Monroe, Laura whatever you
did Is all right. Oh, I can't keep It
from you any longer. I love you
that's what makes it so hard, your In
difference and your Inattention to
everything I say. If you cared for me
at all, you would be Interested, Luura,
are yon absent-minded because you're
thinking of some one else?"
Laura did not answer. She quickly
wiped the lears away and straightened
her shoulders.
"I'm sorry," she said. "But you
mustn't talk that way now not until
after the election. Meantime Just for
my sake, don't tell anyone it wus my
mistake about your donation to the
hovs. 1 liked them so much of
course, I don't understand politics, but
I know they are all your friends."
"They're not voters," .said Fairchild
"No, but their fathers are and more
than that their mothers are," said
Laura stoutly. Bat George only smiled
Then election came and Fairchild,
"Fairchild, Who was never stuck up,"
"Fairchild, the working boys' best
friend," was elected.
He had a phenomenal victory In the
Sixth and Third wards. No one of
his party had ever Dade a showing In
that section, and It was that fact, said
everyone, that swung the election
away from his Influential opponent.
The next day George and Laura met
as usual In the office. Both were very
tired, but they were not late.
"Yon know, I've been thinking,"
said George. "I've tieon wondering,
Laura, whether maybe after all you
aren't a better politician than L I
owe this whole victory to you and
now you've got to marry me before I
go Into office, to show me how to live
up to the fine reputation you've given
And Laura said she would.
