Statue Of Apollo In Rome
Rome, Jan. 23. While plowing a
field near Bassano di Sutro, forty
miles trom Koine, a peasant un
earthed a magnificent bronze statue
representing the youthful Apollo.
A government official secured the
statue for $6,000. Its value is be
lieved to be at least S100.000.
The statue belongs to the best
period ot Greece Roman art.
A Rich Man's Pocket-Money
In a current magazine the state
ment i s made that Andrew
Carnegie is often out with as little
as one dollar in his pocket. Mr
Morgan is another who carries less
than the average clerk. It is also
stated that few rich men even
bother to take a check book with
them Their .credit is so good they
do not feet the need of currency.
All the same. I should think that
they'd occasionally get into a u
awkward situation. They do not
need to "flash the roll of bills"
the way a "bounder" has been
known to flash it. But you'd think
they would prefer to have a wallet
comfortably filled and placed some
where conveniently about their
persons. I low do we know that
they don't? How does anybody
know that thev don't? They may
just have that dollar to talk about.

Independence. Kas., Jan. 23.
For four hours today the gutters
in front of the Montgomery county
courthouse here ran with beer and
whisky, following the destruction
of more than $1 0,000 worth of in
toxicants confiscated in "joint"
raids the last nine months.
Acting under orders of the dis
trict cuiirt, the sheriff and his
assistants carted the bairels, bottles
and cases to the street and broke
I them open one by one.
There were 200 kegs of beer, 100
barrels of bottled beer, 150 cases
of bottled beer, five barrels and
100 cases of whisky and many
small packages with various con
tents. Hundreds of persons gathered
to see the liquor destroyed.
