William Sylvanus Baxter paused for a moment of thought in front of the drug-store at the corner of Washington Street and Central Avenue. He had an internal question to settle before he entered the store: he wished to allow the young man at the soda-fountain no excuse for saying; "Well; make up your mind what it's goin' to be; can't you?" Rudeness of this kind; especially in the presence of girls and women; was hard to bear; and though William Sylvanus Baxter had borne it upon occasion; he had reached an age when he found it intolerable. Therefore; to avoid offering opportunity for anything of the kind; he decided upon chocolate and strawberry; mixed; before approaching the fountain. Once there; however; and a large glass of these flavors and diluted ice-cream proving merely provocative; he said; languidly -- an affectation; for he could have disposed of half a dozen with gusto: "Well; now I'm here; I might as well go one more. Fill 'er up again. Same."
