LOST FINGERS AT FIELDS THREE
YEARS AGO STILL IN COURT
Margaret Jordan's $5,000 damage
suit against Marshall Field & Co. has
been awaiting trial for an unusually
long time. For two years the suit
has been kept from the docket
through the mistakes of her at
torneys. A few days ago an effort was made
to reach Miss Jordan. OTJonnell,
Dillon & Toolen, her attorneys, were
called up. They said the girl lived at
195 W. 14th pL and that the tele
phone number was Canal 75.
Last night a reporter for The Day
Book called up Canal 75 and asked
to be permitted to speak to Miss Jor
don. A girl came to the phone and
upon being questioned denied know
ing anything about the accident.
An hour later the same number
was called and Mrs. Michael Burns
answered the phone. She said that
she didn't know Miss Jordon or any
thing about the case.
The declaration in the case was
filed more than two years ago. It
stated that Miss Jordan had three
fingers of her right hand cut off while
working in a defective mangle in the
laundry of Marshall Field & Co.
On May 7, 1913, the case was
striken from the docket, no attorneys
appearing in court. On Oct. 27, 1913,
the case was reinstated. This was
after the calendar had been made up.
There was no calendar made up in
Yesterday Att'y G. A. Toolen said
that his associate, Patrick I'Donnell,
who is handling the case, is out of
town. He said that the case would
be placed on the calendar this year
and that the reason for the former
delays was that Miss Jordon's case
was mistaken for that of another
client which was settled out of court
Repeated efforts to reach Miss Jor
don have failed.

member of regular army at invasion
of Mexico, died.

Summer time is very Ine,
It puts cold on the hummer.
In consequence we have the sense
To vote right here for summer.
But then again on second thought,
When summer brings vacations,
Tis sad but true, tough luck for you,
It brings all your relations.
P. S. "Oh, look who's in out
midst" o o
"I understand that the Mexican
factions will follow the lead of the
European nations and issue an official
statement of the causes leading to
their several revolutions."
