Beckwith, Sea. lc The Moocher ( Not Minnie) Q: Now as I understand it, Mr. Gooch, you are what is called a ci­garette moocher? A: Yeah, I don't ever buy none. Q: How do you operate, Mr. Gooch? Do you just ask people for cigarettes? A: Naw, that's just plain bummin' I mooch'em. I use psychology. Suppose I see a guy take out a pack. I say, " Boy, that reminds me. I'm fresh out of cigarettes." The other guy nearly always says, " Won't you have one of mine?" Q: But suppose he doesn't? A: Well, if the guy is tough I work the decoy- pack trick on him. As soon as he lights up I pull an empty pack and look surprized when I don't find any. Then I say ' my golly, I thought I had one." Q: And if that doesn't work? A: Well, then I get out a match and light hi cigarette and look all the time as if I would like one. Q: But supposing he does not fall for that? A: Then I give him the works. I get out a cigarette of my own and drop it on deck. Q: You mean you actually have a cigarette of your own? A: Yes. But I only have to carry one and I can use it plenty of time . I don't ever smoke it; I just drop it on deck and say. " There goes my last cigarette." The other guy offers me one of his and when he is not looking I pick up mine and u e it another time. By the way, I'm fresh out of cigar­ettes! According to the latest definition, an old maid i a " yes" gal who never had a chance to talk.

The Dude Ranch ( From Page 1.) the different trips in the woods and to the Lake, but each and every guest has his recreation for the day. There is a maternity hos­pital, spotlessly white and offering ev­ery comfort for the expectant mother. Pups born here have every advantage in the world because they can play in the woods and use the special pen when they are old enough to enjoy the rubber balls, bones, pork chops, rats, mice and all that goes with them. Special sand from a special nearby mountain provides sand for this play pen. The little rascals are weighed daily and a chart kept on each of them. A scientifically balanced diet with all the vitamins is prepared in a pressure cooker for their rations. No french pastries are allowed, only husky ranch fare, but those desiring special diets are served from the chuck house. In the chuck house is listed the names of each guest and his special menu for the day. Some dogs get one egg on rising and others two, depending on whether they are still growing. For the dogs that have diffi­culty in dropping off to sleep a por­tion of hot milk or ovaltine is served. As the special orders are taken to the various guests in a chuck wagon one will find the dogs usually reclin­ing on their sunbath platform ab­sorbing the ultra violet rays of this enchanting altitude. The more delicate breeds or the pampered ones have indoor quarters for sleeping with access to the outside runs so that they can go out and in as they desire. All of the individual bunk houses have one large window, tile floors, elevated beds, a ventilating system, and are furnished with torquoise and blue pottery. In the winter months this is kept at an even heat day and night. For the dogs that desire them wool jackets or SKI SUITS are furnished when the snow falls. Snow men with eyes of meat are made so that the dogs can enjoy play­ing with them to the utmost. Cold mountain water and even sulphur spring water is at hand for the dogs. avy Bill opines that the greatest water power known to man is a woo man's tears.
