There, \vlieve Uu» sunshine is likuly to become liquid at any moment, public busos and street cars, carried in racks overhead, an assortment of umbrellas. all kinds, from the brightly- huod , Japanese type, to (he more sturdy American brand.

You know the bottle tups that always refuse to budge, the door-sill that always trip-s you, the Btcp that always slipa frnni under you, the rug that ahvnys slides, the window that sticks and will not open, along with tho door that will never slay shut. It isn't by chance that these things act the way they do. Jt is all part of a never-ending campaign of the inanimate against man—a, war that goes on and on, bciu'oen tilings—and ua.

They are a bad lot, ;uid they hate the human race. People riun't steal them. Statistics prove that; people are honest. It is the umbrellas who make away with themselves—and leave no trace.
