The home team halted, but In
dependence took up the charge.
In a minute Gorman was giving
.an imitation of a rear brakeman
jon a freight tram, alternately
..making motions that he had de-J
clared the runner out and sate.
. The crowd then took up the af
fair and started to make things
pleasant for Gorman. About this
time the official took it on the run,
-.beating the crowd to safety by a
good margin.
., After reaching his hotel Gor
,man telephoned the ball park,
got the manager of the home
-team on the phone and informed
him-that he had called the run-,
ner out and that the run didn't
score.
- I am sure this is the only case
on record where the umpire tele
phoned his decision. ,And it
stood. The contest was declared
a tie,, and played over.
A new umpire worked in the.
afternoon game.

REASON FOR THE RECALL
Probate Judge Tallmadge of
Catskill, N. Y., got all worked up
over the recall of judges at the
convehtion of the- National Asso
ciation of Probate Judges at the
Hotel Sherman last night.
. Tallmadge told all he thought
about the recall first, - and, then
broke out with this:
"A great nation like ours must
have laws and rules .to govern it
and its people."
Sure! And a. "great nation
like ours" is quite capable of J
enacting laws and rules that will
govern it.
That's wHy the people want;
the recall of Judges.
As things ai;e at present, this
"great nation of ours" passes
laws, and then some pinheaded
judge, or 'body of judges, rear up
on their hind legs and tell the
people they; can't liave that sort
of a law, and, under the present
condition 6f affairs,, they getaway
with it. x.
Right now this "great nation
of ours" can't, hate the kind of
laws it wants and needs, because
a few, judges who are hand in
glove with' the business highbind
ers of the country, have the power
to put the kibosh oh "laws and
rules" passed by the people.

SHE'D HAD SOME BEFORE
Little Ethel had been naughty.
It was very wrong of her to tie
the tail of the cat to the leg of
the chair, and to pour ink into her
father's slippers. She deserved
to be punished,, and her mother
sent her from; the room without'
any lunch.
When the pudding came on the"
scene, however, the mother's con
science srnotener, and she deter
mined to give Ethel another
chance.
'Tell Miss Ethel," she 'remark
ed to the servant, "that if she will
promise to be very good ior the
rest of the afternoon -she may
come in and have some pudding."
The servant 'went, but came
back with the reply:
"Please, mum, ,Miss Ethel
wants to know what kind of pud- .
ding it is before she makes' any
promise."
