Public Market, Thompsonviile • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • A » • j Harrigan. j By LULU JOHNSON. • Copyrighted, 1908, by Jesser Morgan. • • • There was no uproar in the street, only the long, single file of depositors waiting patiently in the faint hope that the bank might open its doors and let them present at the window the checks which they nervously fingered. The scene being enacted under the great glass dome within the bank presented a curious contrast to the almost hopeless inactivity outside. In the directors' room the bank examiner and the president sat at the long table scanning piles of collateral. At the bookkeepers' desks the clerks were helping the staff of accountants to examine the huge ledgers, and in the wire cages the assistant cashier and his staff were counting over the stacks of bills and the great bags of coin. The cashier, Douglas, was not among those present. Tim Harrigan looked up from his desk as the assistant cashier, Mr. Waring, passed. "I wish you'd count these," he said. "I've gone over it three times, and it seems to be $200 short" Waring stepped into the cage and ran over the bills with practiced touch. A second time he counted them and then looked up. "That is just what we are trying to find out," he said to Harrigan. "For months Douglas has been slipping one or two bills out of a package. It was easier than falsifying the entries, and as most of the money was cash reserve the trick may have been going on for a year. It was when one of the packages was paid out by mistake in Douglas' absence that the first suspicion was aroused. I asked him about it when he came back from lunch. He gave an explanation, but when he did not come down yesterday morning suspicion was confirmed, and somehow the news got out, and so the run started." "And a precious lot of work it is making," said Harrigan crossly as he thought of the hard labor of the night before and of the broken engagement to take Nell to the theater. Waring laughed knowingly. "Don't mind about the girl," he advised. "There's every prospect of getting through tomorrow, and you can take her to the show then. Keep an eye peeled for short packages and lay them to one side." The assistant cashier passed on, and Tim Harrigan bent to his work again. Outside a hand organ grinder had drawn up at the curb to cheer the waiting line with popular songs. Tim gritted his teeth as the familiar strains of "No Wedding Bells For Me" came through the ventilators. For a moment he was half envious of the fleeing cashier. Douglas had taken plenty of money. Twenty thousand from the previous day's receipts were known to be gone. What else was missing could be told only when the auditing was accomplished. Twenty thousand! Just one of those crisp bills would enable him to get married and set up the little home for which he longed. He and Nell were saving, but their bank account grew with such pitiful slowness. The hand organ changed its tune, and Bascom, in the next cage, laughed. "There's your song, Tim," he said and softly began to hum the words of the chorus: H-a double r-I-g-a-n spells Harrigan, I'm proud of all the Irish blood that's in me. Divil a word a man can say agin ye, H-a double r-i-g-a-n ye see, It's a name that a shame never has been connected with, Harrigan—-that's -me. Soon the organ was pushed on to more remunerative stands, but the strains kept whirling through Tim's head. It was a catchy air just then popular in the vaudeville houses where he and Nell sought their amusement, and she delighted in Binging it to him. It brought to his mind a picture of the parlor in the little flat where he spent most of his evenings. It was clean, and neat and had the aspect of a home, but the tiny flat was small, and the children overran the place. He wanted his own home alone with Nell. Just one of the crisp bills which Douglas had taken would have set them up and have left a tidy balance besides. Tim gritted his teeth at the thought He counted the packages of bills mechanically, now and then throwing out one In which the count was short. He had completed the count;, of the hundred dollar bills and was- working on the thousands now/*--' Here, too, he found discrepancies. It was as easy to slip a couple of these notes from a package of fifty as to abstract them from the packages of a lesser denomination. Douglas' plan had been absurdly simple in a way. Tim wondered that others had not thought of it He might have done it himself with little fear of detection. He might do it now with absolute impunity. The thought staggered him for an instant, and he leaned uncertainly against the side of the cage. On the polished counter before him were a score of packages from which bills were missing. What was to prevent his slipping a couple of bills from a perfect package and toss it on the short count pile? It .would be blamed on Douglas. No one would ever suspect One bill would enable him to marry Nell and fit up a home spch as they had dared to dream of. It required only a single deft motion. He could slip the bills off the pile and into his pocket The fiction of a legacy would explain his sudden affluence, and no one would ever dream of his transgression. He was leaning against the wire partition that separated him from Bas- ;om's compartment, and the clerk looked up. "Tired out,*Tim?" he asked kindly. "It's a tough job. I'll be glad when it's I'm as sick of money as a girl Tim nodded, and Bascom went on founting the rolls of gold coin, whistling softly as he worked. Tim started BS the tune caught his attention. It was "Harrigan," and Bascom was whistling the chorus: H-a double r-I-g-a-n, you see, It's a name that a shame never has been connected with, Harrigan—that's me. Tim slipped off the high stool and went over to the water cooler. The iced water reduced his fever, and he went back to the dull drudgery of the count, his momentary madness gone. He was proud of his name. He never could face Nell burdened with secret knowledge of guilt; he never could offer her a home that was bought with stolen money. The song had saved him. It was late in the afternoon when he tabulated the results of his count and took them to the president The gray haired old man gave a sigh of relief as he saw the total. "It is not as bad as I had feared," he said slowly, passing the memorandum to the examiner. "Douglas hit us pretty hard, but he did not deal a deathblow." "The bank will keep open?" cried Tim, a smile spreading over his face. With the bank closed, marriage with Neil seemed further away than ever. "The bank will keep open," verified the president "And that reminds me! Mr. Waring is to be promoted to the position of cashier, ahd he has recommended you for his place as assistant It will mean a raise of $300 a year. You are married?" Tim shook his head. "Only engaged," he said simply. "But with the raise I can afford to get married." "Come to me if you want to borrow money to set up housekeeping with," said the president kindly. "We want our men to have hopes. It steadies them down." J An hour later a notice was posted on the bank doors that the institution would resume payment in the morning, and the line of watchers began to drift away. The last were still lingering about as Tim Harrigan came jauntily down the steps and hurried up the street with springy stride to bear joyful news to Nell. And as he strode along the street the smile that played about his lips gave place to a pucker, and he whistled— It's a name that a shame never has been connected with, Harrigan—that's me. Artistic Slips. It is a frequent matter of lamentation on the part of artists that one of their number may spend genius and time on a piece of work, only to fail conspicuously In small detail. There is a story that one Royal academician gave a hand five fingers and a thumb and that another painted a live lobster bright red. The clever Goodall had been engaged in painting a number of laborers dragging a huge stone across the desert when a man of science entering the studio said to him: "I say, Goodall, if you want those fellows to pull that stone you must double their number. It would require just twice as many for the task." But it is not modern painters alone who slip up on points of accuracy. Even Albrecht Durer in a scene representing Peter denying Christ painted one of the Roman soldiers in the act of smoking. Turner put a rainbow beside the sun, and in another picture he got fearfully tangled in the ship's rigging.— Chicago Record-Herald. Fixing a Photograftar. Senator Stone of Missouri once made himself unpopular with a certain photographer. The latter individual appeared at the senator's room at the capitol and announced that he was there to take a picture. Stone expostulated, but in vain. A few days later the photographer again appeared and presented the pictures and also a bill for $10. Remembering how hopeless was his argument against having the picture taken, Senator Stone decided it would be still more useless for him to decline to pay for them. So he wrote a check. After the man's name was on the check he wrote the word "Photo-grafter." When the man presented the check at the senate disbursing office for payment, he was required to indorse the check and write after his name, just as it was written on the face of the check, the word "Photo-grafter."—St. Louis Republic. A Limit to His Power. A curious historical anecdote is handed down from the time of James I. James, being in want of £20,000, applied to the corporation for a loan. The corporation refused. The king insisted. "But, sire, you cannot compel us," said the lord ipayor. "No," exclaimed JamW, "but I'll ruin you and the city forever. I'll remove my courts of law, my court itself and my parliament to Winchester or to Oxford and make a desert of Westminster, and then think what will -become of you!" "May it please your majesty," replied the lord mayor, "you are at liberty to remove yourself and your courts to wherever you please; but, sire, there will, always be one consolation to the merchants of London—your majesty cannot take the Thames along with you!" Garrick's Wit. David Garrick on one occasion passed Tyburn as a huge, crowd was assembling to witness the execution, of a criminal. "Who is he?" asked the great actor of a friend who accompanied him. 1 "I believe his name is Vowel," was the reply. "Ah," said Garrick, "I wonder which of the vowels he is, for there are several. At all events it is certain that it is neither U nor I!"—London Saturday Review. . • ; Quite Natural. "Of course," said the tourist, "you ' know all about the antidotes for snake bite?'! . ^ "Certainly," replied the explorer. ^ '•Well, when a snake' • • bites' you , whafs the thing you do?' •s .

Both seepage and evaporation from irrigating ditches are prevented by closed conduits. Cement pipe for small irrigating ditches is from every point of view to be recommended. It is composed largely of sand and gravel found in the vicinity of the ditches, and only the cement is subject to a freight charge. With a view to determining the best mixtures and the cost of cement pipe in' thie Santa Cruz valley a molding outfit was secured and some experi- Wit attd Humor* ONE EXCEPTION. We praise her doughnuts and her pies, Her biscuit and her cake: But where's the man who sighs for pants Like mother used to make ? She used to take a pair of pa's. When they were worn and frayed, And decorate them with a patch Of some contrasting shade. And cut them off about the knees And take the waist in, too, And say that they for every day Were just the thing for you And then she sent you off to school, And when you didn't go. She wondered what got into boys That they played truant so. Yes, still we praise her jam, her "jell," Her coffee and her steak, But where's the man who sighs for pants Like mother used to make ? TAMPING THE CONCRETE. mental pipes were made. The size selected was of fifteen inches inside diameter, and several lots of pipe were made. In the second cut is shown some of the pipe in lot No. 2. It was made of a mixture of one part cement to three and one-half parts unscreened arroyo sand. There were ten two-foot lengths, each hard and strong, of perfect shape and representing a cost of only 38^ cents per lineal foot. The amount of cement used was five sacks. i'he fourth lot was made of a very lean mixture of cement, lime paste and sand. The replacement of a part of the cement by lime was made for the double purpose of reducing the cost and obtaining a denser and more impermeable. pipe. The -paste was thinned to a consistency that permitted it to mix thoroughly with the sand, and the bell ends were made of a mixture of one part of cement to three parts of sand. The results were very satisfactory. The fifth and sixth lots were made in another locality, and the sand and gravel were of a different character from those used previously, so that screening was necessary. All above one-half inch in size was rejected. The first cut, from a photograph, shows two tiles completed and two laborers tamping a third tile. Regarding the mold to be used and the shape of the tile there will always be differences of opinion. In California TWO FOOT LENGTHS OF CEMENT PIPES. the bevel and tongue joint .is used. It is quickly molded and quickly laid. The bell and spigot joint Is liable' to suffer Injury to the bells, but will probably be laid with tighter joints than the beveled end pipe, especially by an> inexperienced person. For many years cement pipe has been an active competitor of clay tile in sewer construction despite the usually much lower cost of the latter. Pipe culverts offer an ideal substitute for wooden bridges over ditches both in fields and In highways. Still another use for cement pipe is the draining of lowlands. For this purpose it is made straight without bell and is laid with open Joints to admit the water. v She—It is said that cats have a great dread of water. He—Ob, I don't know; our cat seems to drink that milk the milkman brings us I Madge — When you got a proposal from a rich man why didn't you accept him at once ?

Some people seem to have no use for anything common, not even common sense. Aman gets, a lot of credit for being a good husband—after the undertaker has him on ice. It's easier for a woman to make a fool of a man than it is for her to make a man of a fool. "Yes, doctor, one of Harry's eyes seems ever so much stronger than the other. How do you account for that?" "Knothole in the baseball fence last summer, most likely, madam." "At last," said the ambitious young novelist, "I have written something that 11 think will be accepted by the first magazine it is sent to." "What is it?" his friend asked. "A check for a year's subscription." Clara: "What kind of face powder do you use?" Maud: "Why do you ask?" "Charlie Spooner says it's the best be ever tasted." Miss Inland: "You certainly have a charming country place here, and of course you have given it some pretty name?"' Mr Bondholder: "Oh, yes I Mrs Bondholder calls it 'Idlemoment by-the- Sea,' but 1 call it by its right name 'Money-sunk.' " "I have no grudge against fat people, said the steamship agent, "but I always give them a wide berth if I can." One can easily tell at an evening entertainment which couples are married and which are not. Before marriage t' >e gentleman fans the lady; after marriage she fans him."

She always did with me." ' W en a girl with an angel-food taste marries a man with a gingerbread income, it's a sign that she doesn't know on which side her bread is buttered." There is a five year-old New Jersey girl who belongs to an Episcopalian family. The other, day she came home from church and criticised the music. "It was **ery bad," she insisted. "How do you know?" asked her mother. "Because all the people said so " "But they didn't, Kittie," urged the mother "Yes, they did, too mamma Didn't I hear 'em keep saying, 'Lord have mercy on us miserable singers.'" Where It Belongs. "Excuse me," said the playwright to his friend who was hissing the piece, "do you think it is good form to hiss my show when I gave you the ticket that admitted you?" "Certainly," resentfully replied the friend. "If I'd bought a ticket, I would have contented myself by going outside and swo ':ig at myself."—Success Magazine. Railroads.
