Suddenly he heard that peculiar

thing out of the ordinary.

on the corner Mrs Itastus.
On her head was poised the basket

Suddenly a great light broke on Mrs.
Bnstus. She hod hard work to keep It
to herself, but she did.
Two days later Lombard street wos
astonished to Ond that the sign "Wasll
InG doN'e Here" had disappeared from
the front of Mrs. Uasttis' house and
that it was replaced by a staring yel
low one bearing the Inscription:
"Mine, .loner., Voodoo."
Rastus was even more astonished
than the neighbors.
Ills wife informed him In decisive
manner that she hud done with wash
ing. He threatened, he raved, he ex
postulated, but to the black Gibraltar
sitting in state in the "parlor," which
she had draped with black alpaca, his
words were as the idle wind.
Itastus stood It for four days, then
he got a "job" at the salt works, the
OrsT he had taken In seven years. Also
he went to board with a neighbor.
Lombard street first looked with awe
on the sign. But. after a few days, an
adventurous woman, driven to desper
ate courage by the scorn of a mulatto
longshoreman, called on Mine. Jonez.
A week later she and the longshore
man were married.

yellow tidings to the public, Mine.

Sim Wilson was arrested for ploying
policy. He had paid $10 to Mme. Jo

that fact and haled him off just the
Mine. Jonez "voodooed" seven can
dies. Nevertheless one of the Wilson
twins died from the measles and the
other is partially blind.
Then Lombard street arose In wrath.
It did nothing severe. It simply re
