The Come-On

By A. M. Chisholm
Author of "No Wedding Bells," "The Mother Lode" Etc.

'"The man who knows it all" is usually an insufferable acquaintance, with his cock-sureness, his air of condescending superiority. However, he is good plucking, yes, the very best, for a man who knows more and doesn't brag about it. Promoters, sharpers and schemers of all sorts like to gel hold of this know-it-all kind of man. Chisholm tells us of such a case in his characteristically humorous fashion.
