Salesman's Rest
a Success
, HIS. Western Newspaper Union.)
Ti?resa had a father who was a
salesman for a drug firm. She had a
brother who sold goods on the road
for a silk company. It was a sort of
family failing to be a traveling
salesman. If Theresa bad been a man
she believed she, too, would have been
carrying a bag from town to town dis
playing samples of perfumery or chil
dren's sweaters.
"There's no rest for a drummer,"
her brother used to say to her. "All
commercial hotels are alike and if you
don't go to them you are off the beaten
track. Even at noon while I am Jit
neying across country it is to the reg
ular traveling man's hotel that I must
go to feed."
This remark, for some reason which
Theresa did not understand, had made
an impression on her. Why could
there not be an attractive sort of place
where salesmen, going from town to
town as they do nowadays In little
touring cars, might stop and spend a
restful hour or two and then go on
their way, refreshed and ready for the
giving out of all their energy to the
men they were trying to Interest?
The thought became almost an ob
session until Theresa had actually vis
ualized a place which she was calling
In her mind, "Salesman's Best."
'But why not, Sis?" asked her
brother when she told him of her idea
rather timidly.
"Why not what?" she asked.
"Why not develop your business
acumen? Make your vision come true
and Join the two together have a res
taurant and rest room on one of the
thoroughfares of the Island and run it
for the benefit of traveling salesmen
going from one town to the other by
automobile. It is a good idea."
- "Do you really think so?" asked
Theresa, her eyes glowing with the
Joy of receiving encouragement from
her brother.
"I sure do," said the man. "It will
be a little slow at first and It will take
good management. But with your
wonderful knack of making things
comfortable and your gift of cooking
you ought to have a future In this
Theresa set out almost at once to
find an available place on the main ar
tery through Long Island. She went
up and down this road looking at old
houses and shops that might be close
enough to the road to be conspicuous.
She had never been in business, but
her mother had promised to give her
all the help she could and her brother
was almost as enthusiastic as she was
as the plans grew under their develop
ment. "I've found It at last," she cried one
night when she had been gone all day
in the little car her brother had let
her have.
She told the family what it was,
where it was located, Just what busi
ness and financial conditions she must
meet and, every turn, almost as if it
were fate dove-tailing her movements
for her, she met success.
It was not many weeks until she
was established In the old house on
the Merrick road, behind an attrac
tive sign which said "Salesman's
The big living room was dotted here
and there with tables in an Informal
way, and at each table there was a
little shelf containing volumes that
any man might pick yp for a few mo
ments while he ate or rested.
There was no Jazz; there was none
of the noisy, hotel-like atmosphere
about the Salesman's Rest. It was
homelike; the food was good and
there was a quiet, almost intangibly
helpful air about the big living room.
Business was slow at first, and there
were many nights when Theresa had
to look through cloud banks to see
her vision. But always, Just when she
most needed courage, a bit of blue
would appear on her horizon.
This time the light that pushed the
clouds away appeared In the big, raw-
boned person of T. M, Fox, drummer.
He stood, hat in hand, bag beside him,
In the doorway when Theresa came
Into the big living room to mend the
log fire that was burning low. It was
damp and drizzly and she had tried to
make the room seem warm and cheer
ful In spite of her own depressed, dis
couraged mood.
''Could I get lunch 7" asked the man,
Theresa smiled and the big drummer
became Instantly more ill at ease. He
was accustomed to going to men's
hotels where a clerk had promptly
assigned him to a room or the dining
room, as his needs might have been,
The sight of this lovely young woman
beside a blazing fire in comfortable
homelike room was too much for him
"You could certainly," said The
resa. "Put down your bag and be at
home. What would you like? I'll at
tend to It when you warm yourself at
the fire."

Theresa saw at once that he was
from the south of the Mason and
Dixon line and she knew that be
would like fried chicken, corn bread
and buttermilk. "How would fried
chicken be with corn bread?" she
Theresa was as bashful as be was.
She was not a Southern girl, and yet
she knew what he, a man from that
country, wanted.
mmmmmjnaixziak t
"That would be the very best," he
Theresa arranged table near the
fire, and soon had It ready for him.
Meantime, a number of drummers had
arrived, and, one by one, bad refreshed
themselves and were waiting for some
thing to eat.
As she moved from table to table,
cheerfully greeting the men she knew
and courteously caring for the
strangers at her table, Theresa was
quite aware of the almost constant
gaze of the big varnish salesman.
'I don't have to be at my next town
until three o'clock," be explained as
Theresa gave him the check for'what
he had eaten. "Would it be all right
If I stayed here? Driving In this driz
zle's none too attractive," he said.
But of course," exclaimed The
resa, with another of her bewitching
smiles, this time right into his funny,
unsophisticated eyes; "that's why I
call my place the Salesman's Best. So
that you may rest until you need to
go on. i
Torn Fox sought the big couch in
the corner, and found a book, over the
top of which he watched Theresa
when she was not looking. Then and
there he decided (for he was that sort
of a person) that every time that he
could possibly find an excusf for be
ing near Merrick on the Merrick road
he would come to this place. It seemed
to leave nothing to be desired in his
He set out with a determination to

The autumn found the little rest so
busy that Theresa had all she could do
to take friendly care of her traveling
'There's one thing I don't like about
your success, Theresa," said the big
drummer one evening at twilight when
he had remained for suppj at the
"What's that, pray tell?" said The
resa lightly, though she was trembling.
She could see what was on the tip of
her now acknowledged lover's tongue.
"It takes you away from me. I
never see you alone," he said earnest
ly, and reaching for the hand that
hung at. her side.
"I'm alone now," she said.
"Yes, and while I have you I'm go
ing to tell you how I love you. I can
not go on without finding out whether
or not you could care for me, Theresa.
Could you?"
Theresa tried to turn away but he
had taken her other hand and was al
most forcing her to look at him.
"Could you?" he persisted.
She nodded. "I do anyway," she
Fortunately no one came to the rest
for a half hour during which time the
lovers found out the wonderful pos
sibilities of their lives together If they
might go on doing good and living for
others. 1 !
"We'll have a salesman's rest al
ways, won't we?" she asked.
He agreed.- "But you, dear, are

Bangkok's Water Ceremony,
Twice a year all the members of the
royal family, as well as the military
and civil officials Of Slam, gather in the
principal temple in Bangkok for a
water drinking ceremony. Each In turn
presents himself before the king, mak
ing a profound obeisunce, and fulling
on his knees. He then drinks of water
contained In a golden Jar, In which are
soaked spear heuila and other instru

head. This custom Is a testimony of
loyalty to the Siamese monarch, and of
late years even foreign employees of
the government have participated in
the function. ' This Is the great oath
day, and formerly the officials on tak

Your grocer calls it en-dive, (ac

you do, too, from force of habit. Don't
