Since the Firing Line has taken an
active interest in the passage of the

great gool that can be derived from
its enforcement for the traveling
men, we are reproducing herewith a

hotel by Hotel Commissioner Mes Mes-.ser.

the Harrington Hall hotel at Ocala
which, according to the inspection
certificate, is really a 100-point or
gold seal hotel and one that caters
especially to the traveling men. As
can be seen by the certificate, it is
really a gold -seal hotel.

We loaded my little car up with
boats, oars, ice, frying pan, lard, and
about two hundred other things and
drove out to some small lakes 25 or
30 miles away and covered two or
three lakes with indifferent success.
We caught plenty or small bass of
one or two pounds but no large ones.
Mr. Hocker was continually talking
about a lake somewhere that was
full of whoppers, but inasmuch as
he is a lawyer, I paid very little at attention

semi-professional yarns, possibly, in
a way, excusable in a lawyer.

Turning I threw for him, landing
a few inches beyond and giving a

The little rascal came in making
a piteous croaking and was deposited
in the boat and he continued to grunt
a complaining "Eoumph! Eoumph!"
Directly we noticed a slight ripple ripple-not,

'gator looking our way.
She lay inactive a moment,' gazing
at us in our innocence and purity,
but on hearing the plaintive calls of
her offspring she moved slowly to.--ward
"Git out, you old hell hound,"
shouted Jake, but the ancient sau
rian wouldn't "git." She swam slow slowly

the boat and dived. We felt the frail
canvas boat oscillate as her huge
bulk heaved the water underneath
"Back water," cried Mr. Hocker,
being in the stern.
"Pull ahead," I yelled, inasmuch
as I was in front and nearest shore.
The old she-'gitor came up near nearby

It is easy to see that this form of
advertising is the most effective that
can be designed. All over the

As Rudolph Van Vechten entered
the outer doorway of his club, the
handsome mission clock in the hall
was chiming the three-quarter hour
The young man's thin, sensitive Hps
assumed a rueful curve and his brow brow-gathered

"Fifteen minutes yet until nine," he
muttered in a tone of complaint, star staring

shall do until night the gods alone

And having thus given audible ex expression

the temporary irritation with a re resigned

into the luxurious but deserted loung-ing-room
overlooking the street, where
he dropped heavily into a huge, bil billowy
lowy billowy leather chair which stood facing
one of the windows. He immediately
discovered tbat the chair was insuffer insufferably

glared round for an attendant.
None was to be seen; so he shoved

incipient contemplation of the hot hot-empty

Van Vechten might have told you,
if he had paused to analyze his feel feelings
ings feelings respecting the Powhatan, that his
attachment to his club was based upon
some sort of sentiment. His slender,
modishly attired figure, and his finely
chiseled, high-bred features (which
were much paler than they should
have been) were by no means strange
to their present rich and elegant sur surroundings.

if the rotation of the earth upon Its
axis were suddenly to be reversed.
And the incident, but one of a start startling

Again from the hall floated the state stately,

With the first dulcet note. Van Vech Vech-ten's

was passing along the farther side
of the street the first human being he
had seen since taking up hie position
at the window. He was not at all in interested

thoughts were occupied with matters

That is to say, at the time he fancied
they were of. more importance; subse subsequently

Only a few seconds later, in truth,
he regretted that he had not given the
man more of his attention sufficient,
at least, to recall something of his
appearance. But even at that, he
never dreamed how nearly the epi episode

nor did he have any premonition of the

The man was walking with a certain
halting, indefinite slowness, the while
he studied the house numbers, as if
in search of a particular one.
All at once he stopped stock-still.
Van Vechten, as ii chanced, failed to
observe this, for his eyelids, heavy
with loss of sleep, chose this precise
second to curtain the scene. Nothing
had yet occurred to prick his curiosity.
His lids drooped only for an instant,
to be sure; but within that brief space
the strange man's bearing had sud suddenly

irresolution, and had gone quickly ui

only just in time to see him disap disappearing

door itself swing shut.
