W. P. Wojcoft, of Boston, won
the title after the hottest of com
petition, in which W. A. Ruther
ford's "'Champion Warren Dis

ing for honors, for they tried to
niix when, being judged and were

k'eptparfc only by hard wort.
Being chosen as the best .in the
show, which in this case means
best in-the .land, added value' to

DEAR LITTLE GABRIELLE! SHE CHANGES HER MIND
AND WEDS ERIC COULDN'T STAND HIS WEEPS
London, March 1. That
flighty young lady, Gabrielle
Ray, changed her musical com
edy mind today, and married the
Eric she left waiting at the
church yesterday.
Gabrielle didnt' have any cere
mony about it. Eric, it seems,
was inconsolable about being jilt
ed yesterday, and went to Gab
rielle and wept weepy tears.
When Gabrielle got so she
couldn't stand the weeps any
longer, being tender-hearted, she
picked Eric up under her arm and
carried him to the church, and
married him quietly and without
Attracting too much attention.
"But why tlfd you marry him
today when you jilted him yes

came as a shock to the British
public, which is stolid in its ways,

There, was great surprise over
the jilting of Eric Loder yester
day. Eric has $10,000,000 com
ing to him, as well as a title when
his father, Sir fEdmund Loder,
dies. Gabrielle is poor. The B.
P. couldn't understand any act
ress letting that much money slip
through her fingers.
Some of the British public
can't understand' any man being
gook enough to marry a girl
after she'd given him a throw
down like Gabrielle gave Eric
yesterday, either.
Incidentally, before it came to
Eric's turn, Gabrielle had had
some practice in jilting.
The first person she -was engag
ed to was the Marquis of Angle
sey. Shortly after the engage
ment was announced, Gabrielle
made an inquiry into the mar
quis' finances, and discovered that
if she married him she'd probab
ly have-to keep him.
Then the Marquis of Anglesey
was given the frozen mitt Ga
brielle wasn't in the business of
providing livings for impecunious
young noblemen.
Then came Lord Delmeny.
Lord Delmeny became engaged
to Gabrielle, and was happy for a
time until Gabrielle took a rope
of pearTs which he presented her,
