(The Traveling Man)
The Traveling Man pushes open the
smudgy plate-glass door of the "best
hotel in town" and strides into the
smoky lobby. He drops his bags be-
fore the high counter of the desk,
takes his cigar from his mouth and
leans over to slap the clerk genially
on the back.
"Hello, Bill!" says he. "How's the
little old burg anyway? Cabbage
crop comin' on .fin'e, I suppose?"
He jabs his cigar back into his
mouth as he reaches for the register.
"Gimme the best you have, you
know! Nothin's too good for Willie
when he's in a roaring little town like
this, eh, George? Take 'em up; (he
jerks his thumb at the bags). I'm for
a little grub."
The screen doors of the dining room
swing behind him and a half dozen
people look up from the dingy-linened
tables to see the head waitress hurry
forward to meet him.
"Same little lady, eh?" says he as
she leads him to a seat. "Lots of ex-
citement when a real man like me
comes along, eh? Same old menu.
Just like comin' home, eh? Make it
the usual thing, you know, and don't
let 'em burn the flap-jacks. Tell the
rook yourself, won't you, girlie? It's
for me, remember."
"Some little queen," he confides to
the man as the next table as he tips
back in his chair.
The waitress returns with a dish of
well-stirred prunes.
"Always takes care of uncle, doesn't
she? Didn't scratch those cute little
hands hunting for the eggs, eh?"
Etc., etc., etc.
The Traveling Man's idea of Savoir
Faire is to josh easily with the wait-

(Cent inuied from Paag'e Eonr)
and established a kind of base of sup-
plies, and thei started off to find
some embankments and gulches and
bad weather for a story we were work-
ing out. We were only going to be
gone about three days, but at the end
of that time, the guides came up to
Kendrick with the interesting informa-
tion that they were lost. By good luck,
Kendrick had provisioned the outfit
with enough to last us for a while, if
we dealt out the rations carefully.
B3ut there were five women in the
party, and we were afraid to tell them
what had happened. I had used up
all the film I had brought along, but
Kendrick told them that he was filming
two or three stories that had come
to him on the trail. and that we would
go back when he had finished. So
every lay he put them through their
paces and made me turn the crank of
an empty camera to soothe them. It
might have been soothing for them
but it was anything but that for me.
With my camera braced against the
head wind, and my furs padded out
with every piece. of paper and rag I
could lay my hands on, I sure must
have been a funny sight. I wished I
was back in my little old studio in
New York telling somebody's brat to
"watch the little birdie come out,"
while I squeezed the bulb.
Did I see any Esquimaux? Well, I

should say so. Funny little fellows.
they were, dark,- with long, black,
straight hair. They were greasy all
over from having washed their faces
wita the chunks of whale fat before
they would decide to eat it. Pah! I
tried some, but nix and no more. Most
oi them were as ugly as they make
them, with their teeth and jaws either
sticking way out or way in, and never'
where they ought to be. But they
would do anything they saw us do.
I. never will forget the time one of
them begged me for a. chew of to-
bacco, and started in to masticate it.
i suppose he tried to swallow it in-
stead, of only Fletcherizing, for he
suddenly gave us an example of how
sick a sick Esquimaux could be. he
wealthiest John D. of the bunch was
the man that had the most fish-hooks
of steel, or the most axes, and jack-
h-mves. The most- shiftless loafer in
the village wore about $600 worth of
sealskins on his person. Which he
was ready to trade for an Ingersoll
watch or a fountain pen.
Six days we were lost, and on the
seienth, the guides found a trail in
the snow which they said had been
made by the mail-sled, and that it
was about four hours old. How they
could tell the age of a bunch of marks
in the snow I don't know, but they
could do this in a way to make a stop
watch jealous. So we hit that trail
for civilization, or as much of it as
there is to be found in that half-fin-
ished part of the world. We had to
get a few mining scenes and camps,
Those big fellows certainly gave tone
to the scene, but we could never teach
them to look away from the camera.
At last Kendrick had Porter grind an
3mpty at them, while I was concealed
somewhere getting in the real stuft,
with our people well up in the fore-
ground registering away as per di-
rections. -
Our work lasted until March of 1t12,
and you can take it from me, 1 didn't
start in to bawl when Kendrick gave
the word to pack up our duds and
hike south. I had seen the fac-similes
of the Esquimaux, and the polar bears,
and the gold mines, and the dog-
slt'cde which you used to pore over in
the geography book, back in Squeer's
Lolow, Me sachusetts, with the ther-
mometer at 94 in the shade, and teach-
er's voice a-droning in your ears. You
wished you were there, didn't you?
So did I. But from now on I mean
to stick to civilization and newspapers
and veal cutlet and two-fers and po-
Ker chips.

Round-Up Club to Initiate on March 12
New men will be taken into the
Round-up club and initiated on Sun-

the combined smoker and business
meeting held last night at the Union.
It was definitely decided to have the
club's formal party at the armory on
March 24. The program will include
several very novel forms of entertain-
ment, some of them being put on by
professionals. Chairmen of commit-
tees for the dance were appointed as
