TRAVELOGUE

" Now, girls," he said, "you can set your watches back an hour. We change time here. We were Central time and now we're Moun tain time."
" Mountain time," repeated Mildred. " I suppose that's where the expression started, 'it's high time."'
Hazel and Chapman looked blank and Mildred blushed. She felt she had made a mistake saying anything at all. She opened
her book, " Carlyle on Cromwell and Others," which Rev. N. L.
Veach had given her for Christmas.
" Have you ever been to Washington? " Chapman asked Hazel.
" Oh, isn't it beautiful! ` The City of Magnificent Distances.' Wonderful ! I was there two years ago with Bess Eldridge. We were going to meet the President, but something happened. Oh, yes; Bess got a wire from Harley Bateman that he was going to get in that afternoon. And he never came at all. He was awfully nice when he wasn't drinking, and just terrible when he drank. Bess broke off her engagement to him and married a man named Wannop, who owned some flour-mills in Minneapolis. She was a dandy girl, but bit her finger-nails just terribly. So we didn't get to see the President, but we sat through two or three sessions of the Senate and House. Do you see how they ever get anything done? And we went to Rock Creek Park and Mount Vernon and Arlington Cemetery and Keith's.
" Moran and Mack were there; you know, the black-face comedians. Moran, or maybe it's Mack, whichever is the little one, he says to the other-I've forgotten just how it went, but they were simply screaming and I thought Bess and I would be put out. We just howled. And the last night we were there we saw Thomas Meighan in 'Old Home Week.' Wonderful ! Harley Bateman knows Thomas Meighan personally. He's got a beautiful home out on Long Island. He invited Harley out there to dinner one night, but something happened. Oh, yes; Harley lost a front tooth once and he had a false one put in and this day he ate some caramels and the tooth came out "
" Look here," said Chapman, opening his mouth and pointing in it. " I got that one pulled in Milwaukee "
" Harley was a perfect peach when he was sober, but terrible when "
It occurred to Mildred that her presence might be embarrassing. Here were evidently kindred spirits, two people who had been everywhere and seen everything. But of course they couldn't talk anything but geography and dentistry before her.
