Clothes for Men Will Be Plainer Next Year
Cedar Point, Ohio. Men's apparel,
plain this year, is going to be more so
next year, according to delegates at
tending the annual sessions of the
Merchant Tailors' Designers' associa
tion. The designers, who are applying
their Ingenuity to styles for the spring
and summer of say that the aver
age man has never looked with favor
on th "ttasby makeup."
They declare the thing that Is cans
lng them the most worry at the pres
ent time Is the outing and particularly
the golfing costume.
"We have gone the limit In the mat
ter of the golfing outfit." said John It.
Aikens of Detroit. "A new Idea in
the golf suit line excites much Interest
among the designers uho have ubjw.
worn themselves out thinking up thU.
that and LLu other tiling,"
.. t By H. M. EGBERT
ls24. Western Newspaper Union.)
"Changes 1" repeated my friend the
fisherman thoughtfully. Yes, I reckon
there has been some chnnges since
you were here last year. Folks come
and go. Maybe they'll skip a year und
come back the year after next. You
remember young Mr. Everslelgli and
that Miss Sadie fieauchump? Well,
there's a story In that,
"You remember how thick they was
last year. Folks said that they'd get
married for sure. But you went away
before the fun started. Nope, I don't
kne-.v what started It, but by the time
the fall leaves began to full, as the
poets puts It, they wasn't no longer on
speaking terms. And so they went
away when the hotel closed, one at a
time, and still not speaking.
"Well, that's the last I thougt to
see of them. But no ! Up pops Miss
Sadie this spring, quite early, and
what do you think she wanted? To
camp out on Old Man's Head. I told
her the camp on the Island hadn't
been occupied for five year and more,
and was falling into pieces, but she
would have It that that was just the
place for her.
" 'I'm studying nature,' she says to
me, 'and next month one of the girls
of our sketching club Is coming to
stay with me. So we want a nice lone
ly place where there aren't no men.'
"From the way Miss Sadie shot out
the word 'men,' you'd have thought
she might have been speaking of
crabs or mice, or any of them crea
tures that the ladies find so objec
tionable In general. However, I fixed
up the shack somehow, and put on a
new piece of tin here and there, to
make It water-tight. Then I rowed her
over with her box of provisions, and I
looked to see her signaling for me to
come and take her off next day. Said
signal was to be a white handkerchief
tied to the top of a pole, in token that
Miss Sadie had had enough of loneli
ness. "Had enough? Not much, sir. She
fairly reveled In It. When she did
hoist the handkerchief, rive days later,
and I went over, I found all she
wanted was some more flour. She'd
fixed up the place as comfortable as
you can believe. She'd chopped about
two cords of firewood, and done a
couple of canvases besides, and when
I pulled ashore she was sitting over
the fire, making toast.
" 'Yes, I think I shall spend the
whole summer here,' she says to me.
'And maybe Miss Jones will Join me
later. I can't tell you how obliged to
you I am for sending me here. Fine
views, fine sunsets, good fishing, plenty
to paint, and no Insects or men.' Yes,
that's the way she put It to me. It
kind of bowled me over, and I rowed
back feeling sort of melancholy, to
think a little quarrel between two
young people should have driven the
girl to become a hermit.
"When I got back you could have
knocked me down with a feather, for
the very first person I set eyes on
was young Mr. Everslelgli. I didn't
know what to make of It at all.
"'Glad to see you back again,' I
told him. 'Staying at the hotel, I sup
pose, Mr. Everslelgli T
" 'Well yes,' he answers, dubious
like. But I ain't thinking of staying
there very long. The fact la. I've come
down to spend the whole summer. I'm
writing a book of poems about melan
choly' now I'm not sure he said mel
ancholy, or whether I took the Idea
from his manner, but that was the
Impression he gave. Do you happen
to know a nice lonely place where a
man can enjoy himself? A nice place
there aren't any women to come both
ering one, you know,' he asked.
"I gasped, as you can Imagine. 'No,
Mr. Eversletgh, I don't,' I answered
him. 'The fact Is,' I continued, 'there's
apt to be women almost anywhere
to where the men are, you know.'
"'Don't I know!' said young Mr.
Everslelgli. 'However, I suppose I'll
Just have to stay on at the hotel.'
"I told my missus about It when I
got home, and she guv me the worst
language I ever heard from her. 'SI,
you're a perfect fool V she says, which
was hard, you'll admit. Besides, it
" 'Prove that, Marian !' says I,
" T will," she says. 'Don't you see
that that young senseless girl has
come back In the sneaking hoie of
seeing that young Imbecile again this
year? And don't you see that that
young Imbecile has come back In the
hopes of meeting that young fool of a
" 'No, Marian, I don't see as I do,' I
answered. 'Because, you see, each of
'em told me he and she wanted to be
In a nice, lonely place, where there
wasn't any of the opposite sects
" 'Well. PI, when I said you wei a
fool I was speaking only from nine
and thirty years' experience,' she says.
But now I'm speaking out of the ex
perience of Just about a hundred mil
lions of women. I gueaa you won't un
derstand that, SI. But anyhow, this
Is what you're agoing to do.'
"She told me what I was agoing to
do, and, having had experience of
what cornea from not doing It. I went
and did It. I stopped young Mr. Ever-
slelgh the next morning, as he was
walking up and down in front of Ned
Granger's cow-shed, thinking over a
"'Why, Mr. Everslelgli,' I said, 'If
I didn't go and forget about Old Man's
Head. There's a nice lonely place If
you like. And there's a camp there,
too. Only, you see, once you're there,
you can't get off unless you send me a
signal to come over with the boat.'
" The very place,' says he, Jumping
at the idea. 'When can you take me
" This afternoon, I suppose,' I an
swered. " 'And If I shall have reason to
want to run ashore, you'll come over
the minute I put up the signal?' he
asks me. And I thinks to myself that
he means to keep his eyes peeled for
Miss Sadie, after all.
" 'Surely,' I answers. 'Just hoist a
white rag or something on the flag
pole. I'll be over In about half an
" 'It's a bargain,' says young Mr.
Eversleigh. And with that he didn't
4,'ve me no peace till I'd got out the
boat and tilled it with stuff from Jim
Llttlefleld's store, and started to row
him across to Old Man's Head.
"I knew Miss Sadie would be sketch
ing on the south rocks that time of
the day, so I rowed him round to the
north end on pretense of the tide be
ing strong, and I showed him where
the camp was in the distance. Then I
pulled back as hard as I could and
"The day wore on toward afternoon,
and I reckoned that them two ought
to have fo'ind each other, und I was
looking to see the signal hoisted In a
frantic sort of way. But there didn't
come no signal. I asked my missis
about it, but she didn't seem to en
couruge me, und so I started out about
four o'clock rather in a panic and
wondering what I ought to do.
"First mun I met was Reverend Stod
gers you remember him, don't you?
Sort of humorous chap, with u gray
beard and a twinkle when he looked at
you. He'd come down by the after
" The very man I wanted to see,'
he says, catching holt of me. 'Can
you tell me '
" 'Of a nice lonely place where you
can write a few sermons without be
ing disturbed,' I says.
" 'Now how In thunder did yon
know?' he inquired, letting go of me
and gapping at me.
'"Never mind,' I answers him. 'What
you want Is Old Man's Head, over
yonder. I can get you a box of pro
visions and row you over afore sun
down. Only there ain't no way of
getting back unless you hoist the sig
nal which the same Is a white rag
on a pole.'
" Tal;e me there," says the rever
end. T want to breathe the balmy sea
air thla night, after being cooped up
" 'Not a word,' I answers. T know
Just how you feel. But I'll be watch
ing till It growl dark, and If you've
forgot anything, or want me, just hoist
the signal and I'll be over In a Jiffy.'
"Well, sir, I calculated that by that
time young Mr. Everslelgli and Miss
Sadie would have decided that It was
signaling time, and I didn't want to
see the flag just then. So I got the
reverend and the provision box into
the boat and pulled round to the north
end. I showed him where the camp
was, and I pulled for the shore again,
reaching It Just about sundown. And
there I sat and waited.
"It was nearly too dark to see when
the signal went up.
"Off I goes, and the three of them
was on Uie beach, waiting for me. I
hadn't hardly got out of the boat than
young Mr. Eversleigh catches holt of
me like a madman.
"'What do you mean by this In
fernal trick you've played on me?'
"Trick?" I asks, but I hudn't time
to go no further.
i Trick, I wild,' he shouted. 'Do
you mean to maroon my wife and ine
In this confounded place all night?
Pull your hardest, SI, for if you don't
make record time we'll never catch
the night train for Boston.'
"And, as for me,' says the reverend,
1 shall seize the opportunity to com
pose a sermon.'
'They caught the train all right, I
guess, for they didn't show again.
But Joe Slkes, up to the hotel, has
had a letter from him asking If he'll
reserve a room for them. They ought
to be along some time this month, sir."
