CUT OUT THE FRETTIN'
By H. M. Cochran.
Cut out your frettin', and cut out
Lose all your nervousness; say,

Of bein' all fidgety, all in a hurry;
Let all your muscles and nerve
cells run loose.

Dive in the lake, folks; a dip is a treat.
Look for the cool spots and loiter;
Don't let Sol get you and don't let
'im fret you;
Stick to your base and just play
the game right.
True he will sweat you, but he won't

RATCLIFFE CASE CALLED A NEW
OIney, III., July 29. A direct par
allel to the famous Stewart case of
Tipton, Ind., of 16 years ago is seen
in the sudden death of Elizabeth Rat
cliffe, which has caused Roy Hinter
liter to be held in jail without bond
for the girl's murder.
Dr. Horace Reed, one of the phy
sicians attending Mrs. Stewart, has
written Dr. James Weber, who made
the examination of Elizabeth Rat
cliffe, telling him the details of the
death of Mrs. Stewart, who died' on
the operating table. Dr. Reed states
Mrs. Stewart's husband confessed at
the autopsy to having retained a
nhysician who attempted abortion on
Mrs. Stewart by attaching a cathetor
to a compressed air tank on which
the pressure registered 20 pounds.
Mrs. Stewart suddenly raised herself,
exclaimed "Oh!" and fell back dead,
which is precisely how Hinterliter
declares the Ratcliffe girl died.
Mrs. Emma Hinterliter, a bent,
thin, little widow, called on her son
yesterday. She came with the hope 2
that she would take him back with "
her today. She did not cry when her
son greeted her. She just held him

WHO'S THE CHI. CINDERELLA?
PIER MUSIC POPULAR
There is a Cinderella in Chicago
some place and she can have her
dainty little slipper by calling at the
office of the MuniMnal pier sup't and
proving her property.
The little slipper was found in the
pier auditorium following a concert
by the Chicago band. Ass't Sup't
E. V. Gregg describes the shoe as
a white, rubber-soled pomp, size
3y2. It is the type that the up-to-date
summer girl wears.
Crowds packed the pier again Fri
day. The hours that the public may
use the pier has been changed to
from 5 in the morning until 11 at
night, except Saturday and Sunday,
when it will remain open until mid
night. Last night's band concert was
augmented by choral singing by the
American Choral society under the
direction of the Chicago Singverein,
directed by Wm. Boeppler, and the A
Lincoln Exposition "song chorus un- t
der direction of E. Azalia Hackley.
Not a single heat prostration
marred the day's record. No patients
came to the emergency hospital in
charge of Dr. J. C. Ross. The tem
perature at the pier was from 10 to
15 degrees lower than in the loop.
