A STUTTERING GROOM WHO DOESN'T BELIEVE IN HE
. " WHO HESITATES IS LOST
Lynn, Mass., Feb. 27. A
blushing young man, who seem
ed to be hiving difficulty with his
tongue, approached City Clerk
Atwill this morning.
"I-I-r-s this wh-wh-where I get
a m-m-marriage license" he in
quired. . ,
"It's where' marriage licenses
are issued to those who comply
with the'law," said Atwill, severe
ly, as he drew the record toward
him. "Name, please?"
"A-A-A-Albert Ju-june," said
the blushing one.
"Albert Jujune," repeated At
will. "No," said the blushing per
son, desperately. "Not Ju-june.
Atwill looked at the blushing
one for a moment, and then, re
alizing the difficulties under
which he was laboring, he said:
"Aw, spell it!"
"J-j-j-j-j-u-n-e," said the youth,
with a rush. .
"How many "J's ?" inquired At
will, a ,4,
"O-o-o-one," said June.
"Aft right. Albert June," said
Atwill, writing in the name.
"Where born?" asked Atwill,
in the business like tone, of the
marriage license clerk.
"Sa-ay," interrupted Atwill.
"Don't do that! I don't like it,
so don't do it. Where were you
born? Cut out the ju-jus'
"Well, y-y-y-you see, I was
bo-bo-born in Ju-ju-ju-ju "
Atwill tore his hair.
'-'Spell it," he yelled. "Spell it."
"J-j-j-j-j-une," said June
Say," said Atwill. "What js
this? A joke?"
"N-no, it's my bi-birthplace, in
Flo-Flo-Florida," said June.
"Oh, all right," said Atwill,
grouchily. "I gotcha. Albert
Tune, 21, June, Florida. What's
the lady's name?"
"Ethel," said June, and stop
ped. "Yes, I know," said Atwell,
sarcastically. tI suppose some
times it's dear little ootsy-woot-sy,
too. But for purely legal rea
sons, y'understand, we've got to
have more of a name than that
for the young lady. What's the
rest of it?"
June contorted his face up into,
a ball and bhished more furiously
"Ju-ju-ju-ju " he began.
"Stop that!" yelled Atwill, -jumping
up and down. -"Stop it,
I say. What d'yuh think this is
a lunatic asylum r Eh?"
"N-n-n-no, but the lady's
m-m-middle name is Ju-ju-ju "
"Is it June?" asked Atwill, in-,
the quiet tones of a man who ts
beginning to get good and mad.
"Y-y-y-yes," said June.
"Say," said Atwill, "If you're i
just tryin' to be funny, you know,
I guess you an' I'll go outside an'
talk it over there? What is this,
' "N-n-nn-no, J jain't trying to
