A THE MOTOBMAN'S TEOTJBLESl
With a quick, strong shove of the
brake-lever the motonnan brought his
car to a stop. The woman on the edge
of the track just ahead, who had been
trying to cross, backed off, and in spite
of his motions, refused to budge. He
clanged his . gong, got the signal to
start, and put on the power again.
'One thing is true," the motorman
said to the passenger on the platform,
''men don't dp that It's only women.
Did you see what she did?"
"No," said the passenger. "I didn't
notice her till you stopped."
"Didn't you? She was beginning to
cross the street when we passed the
last street way back there. . I saw her,
and she saw me, and I thought that
she saw I saw her. Anyway, I slowed
up to. give her a chance besides, I'm
ahead of time, two minutes. Then
when I get near, she stops, and looks
up, and refuses to move. I have to
stop because I can't tell which way
she's likely to go."
"Women don't understand mechan
ical things," said the passenger.
"P'r aps not. There s one woman
lives in town," he jerked his thumb to
Indicate the direction. "She used to
take my car when I was on the old
route every morning. The regular stop
was on the south side of the cross
street. Just as regular as the clock,
she'd stand on the north side.
"First time I kind of slowed down,
and motioned to her, and she ran along.
I heard she reported me for not let
ting her get on, and making her follow
to the post. Mind you, she did the
same thing every day. I got to watch
out for her, and I used to try to be
half a minute ahead of time so as to
make up for it For all I know, she
does it still."
The passenger was silent a moment
"Do women get off backwards much?"
he asked. -
"Not on this end of the car," said
the driver, grimly. "I scare 'em too
much. One tried It on me once. I said,
Danger, ma'am!' in a loud voice, and
she jumped back as If she'd stepped on

A Rural Telephone Is an investment, not an expense.' The
