SEPTEMBER MORN SHOULD NOT
WEAR A RING ANYWAY!
Here's the story of how September
Morn got in wrong through spoiling
Nature's-wardrobehy donning a ring.
For be it understood tfiat September
Morn should never wear even so
much as a smile.
September Morn's other name in
this case is Minnie Enneser. She is
one of the Belles of the Baldhead
Row that stand in the water a la Sep
Morn in the show of that name at
the LaSalle Opera House.
The ring was a diamond one valued
at $50.-.;it was given to her by Avon
S. Barrows, 2222 Sedgwick St., who
is also possessed of a, wife and two
children.
Possibly because he is sympathetic
he didn't like the idea of poor little
September Morn standing out there
in the water without anything on,
so he proceeded to dress her up in the
ring.
Then little Morn and he fell out.
He demanded the ring. She smiled
ever so sweetly and began to hum
"Experience."
She was arrested last night and re
leased on $600 bonds.

CLAIMS THAT MILITIA CAPTAIN
SAID "I AM CHRIST"
Trinidad, Col., Feb. 21. "I am
Christ and the rest of the men on
horseback are, too, and you want to
obey us:"
That is what Captain Linderfell of "
the Colorado state militia said to him
on Dec. 31, Bryan Orf of Ludlow, a
striker, testified today before the con
gressional strike probe committee.
The testimony was given during a
statement by Orf of alleged molesta
tion of strikers by the militiamen.
The officer made the remark, he al
leged, when strikers protested' against
molestation.
Captain Edward A. Smith of Den
ver was called to the stand to deny
testimony given yesterday by Gus
tave Yeshinsky, a boy of 11, that two
soldiers had abused him and robbed
his home of $200 in cash. Smith said
he had investigated the charges for
General Chase and found that Cap
tain -H. E.- Insley and Sergeant H. A.
Arnold had visited the Yeshinski
home, but he denied that either had
been drunk, as alleged by the boy, or
had taken any money. The miners'
attorneys cross-examined Smith re
garding alleged drinking by militia
men, eliciting the remark: "There
are no more" militiamen drunk down
here than there are students drunk
at Colorado University." The witness
said soldiers caught stealing had been
punished severely.
