ly gotdn speaking terms with
trouble. Fred began to under
stand the difference between
working under one's millionaire
uncle, and earning a living.
But he wouldn't go back to
Hawley. He wore out a lot of
good leather looking for a job,
and at last landed one as a steve

avenue ahd making a fool of her
self about a dog or something.
Stevedores don't get an awful lot
of money, and Fred's still a steve
dore. They say he's a good one.
After she had said "goody,
goody!" Mrs. Crandall explained:
"It isn't that I care about the
old money," "but I just love to see
Fred get what ought to be his, in
spite of His stingy old uncle Oh,

Us Over the Wire.
These be troublous times.
It's a sad old, mad old, bad old
world that is, if you accept the
press reports literally.
It's funny, too, with all these
protectors on the job. There's
Andy Carnegie, giving away
medals with one hand, and with

Gentle reader (just like Bertha
M. Clay) come with us to Mex
ico. Watch the Madero jump.
Watch the Orozco hump, and
see the innocent bystanders get it
in the neck as usual. Also notice
the U. S. soldiers hovering on the
border. Why are they there?
How simple. American com
mercial and financial interests in
Mexico are in danger, so they
say, and the treasury of the
money trust and the patriotism
of the great U. S. must be upheld.
And what's a greaser president
