THE, INTERESTING TALE OF THREE BIRDS OF A1
FEATHER WHO .FLOCKED TOGETHER
We know that birds of a feath
er flock together and so there is
peculiar interest in'-certain birds
who flocked together last night.
Those birds were Andy Law
rence, County Judge JotnJ E.
Owens and Maclay Hoyne, and
they flocked together at Schlogl's
Cafe, 37 North 5th avenue at the
hour of 7 o'clock.
They stayed at Schlogl's flock
ing together guite hard. Shortly
after '8 o'clock those birds flocked
out of Schlogl's, stilf together,,
and flocked' down to the Majestic
Theater still together.
Now while those birds were
flocking together at Schlogl's we
don't doubt for 'a moment that
they talked about the Balkan war,
or the price of a sewing machine
in 'darkest Africa, osr some simi

Judge John E. Owens who will
say whether Maclay Hoyne or
William A. Cunnea was elected
state's attorney. r
All of which things make that
flocking together of the birds?
known as Andy Lawrence, Coun
ty Judge John E. Owens -and
Maclay Hoyne extremely inter-!
And as we said before, we
don't doubt for a moment that
the birds while flocking together
in Schjogl's discussed something
like a new way of taking the holes'
out of Swiss cheese.
