The seller loaded a profit of 100 per cent on his work. The buyer made a down payment of sixty per cent. That was the last the seller saw of the buyer. Both camo out even on the deal. the net result being identical with a regular transaction between honest men. The tragedy occurs when a crook is on one side of the bargaining table and an honest man on the other; the honest man gets stuck. This reminds us of an old golf story which you can figure out yourself: "What kind of a game do you play?' 1 asked one man. "Oh, about 115." was the answer. "What do you play?" "About 112 on a E°°d day." "Well, let's shoot 'at a dollar a stroke.' 1 That night the "115" man told his wife the "112" man was a crook. "He made it In 78." was the complaint. "And what was your score?" she inquired. "Eighty!" he growled. Fable: Once upon a time a man working in an office left a pencil on his desk and walked out into another department.

Now they 'needn't talfc about his troubles. Phillipa had rather dreaded that stage of the game when ehe should "have to dry his tears," as she put it to herself. To have It passed over In the suddenly swift moving' course of his domestic discord pleased her tremendously. She could b« herself now, wlta slight variations, of course. But she mustn't be careless, she thought warningly; mustn't forget that she still needed to epitomize womanliness In Alan's eyes. The very essence of It, in'fact.

"There are so few men a girl can have a good time with, and not be misunderstood." she said. And congratulated herself upon having made a safety-first move.

Today ' By Arthur Brisbane. (Copyright By King Syndicate, Inc.) A QUIET MAY DAY. RUSSIA, ITALY, PEACE. HOBKEtta LIVE LONGER. SHE I'AYS I.'KR WAY. It is wise not to sit on the safety valve. Thursday, New York's "patriots" had their parade, and the ··Reds." or radicals, had theirs, wttn no interference by the police. Let men talk and print, and they will be contented. Forbid them to talk, and they'll do something worse. Very pathetic in New York's radical parade were the young children, some only live or six years old, parading in dusty streets, under a hot sun. Nothing is to be gained by exhibiting children. Well-meaning fathers and mother* would have been wiser had they bent them to play in the parks, while their fathers, and mothers paraded. It was a calm May day everywhere. In London. Budapest, Vienna. Berlin. big parades were all peaceful Needless to say, Italy was quiet. Mussolini wouldn't let it be otfter- wlse. May day celebrations took the form o£ religious festivals. While it lasts, a dictatorship seems the simplest form of government. Everything is peaceful in Russia where everybody is radical.

In Russia, reversing the theories of Karl Marx, and managed by extremely able men. the paople are quiet, obedient. In Italy, where Karl Marx would not be publicly mentioned, a nation, narurally radical, is told that there has been too much talk about liberty, and people are obedient. The question is, "HOW LONG?"
