ALL 'ROUND TOWN
Harry Williams looked up from his
books in the election commissioners'
offices and glanced helplessly at
"Wonder where I can find out
what the date is?" he asked.
"Why don't you try looking at the
calendar?" suggested Rayner.
Tto work a bluff on Judge Landis.
And so on. The Johnny spoke up.
"I was all alone in the house the
other night," he declared, 'when I
heard sure sounds of a burglar mak
ing his entrance. I jumped out of
bed and went downstairs, three at
a time." v.
"Yes, yes," gasped one of the lis
teners, "and what did you do to him
when you reached him?" f.
"Oh," said Johhny, resuming his
work, "I didn't reach him. He was

A victim of the tape measure was
being put through the paces in Frank
Ragen's tailoring emporium yester
day. "Stick a pocket right there," sug

Passengers on a Madison-Austin
No. 7 car had the thrill of a talkative
scrap to warm 'em up this morning.
The car was jammed. 'They were
packed in like halibuts (to be dif

gonosome gent out in the cold de

"NextCar, please," said the"" conny.
"Next, nothing," snapped the out

jamming crushing and pushing,

outside again. But he had won His
point, paid his jitney, and the trolley
poked serenely down Madison, while
the other million or so passengers
enjoyed the little break in the morn
ing's cold ride.
