What brought Cerjelo into the
court of domestic relations was the
story of 'tis wife, Katrina, that he

S. Peoria st.
Phil Cinciole, who two weeks ago
told Judge Stelk that he would as
hef spend the rest of his days in the
Bridewell as at home, was back in
court today, humbly pleading for lib
erty and promising to support his
wife and child. A few days in the
Bridewell with the society of the
"delect" was sufficients to turn his
heart toward home, and he wrote ap
peals to his wife to vplead with the
judge for a chance for him. Judge
Stelk' let him out on a year's proba
tion.' "How many children have you?"
Judge Stelk asked Mrs. Mary Scully,

A young husband, an immigrant,
understood a little of the English lan
guage, but was a bit shy on his
knowledge of jocular synonyms. He
had testified, that he ordinarily took
several drinks a day.
"You have an eye-opener every
morning, I suppose," said Judge
"Yes," was the answer.
"An appetizer before supper?"
continued the judge.
"Yes," after a short hesitation.
"And a. nightcap before you go to
bed?" pressed the judge.
"Oh, no! no ! judge, I never-wear a
nightcap," cried the innocent one,
horrified at the thought. He did not
understand that one kind of a night
cap generates internal warmth while
the other is good to keep the chill
off bald pates.
ALDERMEN DECIDE TO KEEP
The 'finance committee has not
watched the three-ring circus per
formed by the City Hall for the past
two years In vain. Yesterday they
decided it was quite necessary to re
tain the offical "bug extermnator,"
Chas. Haase. They are of the opin
ion his services will be needed. Of
course, Mr. Haase says he's a scien
tific insect chaser. He will receive
$1,400, instead of $1,500 for his serv
ices. The committee paid no more at
tention to the appeals of Dr. John P.,
Brushingham, sec'y morals commis
sion, a,nd Louise Osborne Howe,
public welfare com'r, to restore the
salaries to the positions. Brushing
ham, "pastor of the City Hall taber
nacle,!' gave out an interview to the
papers yesterday m6rning, in which
he said he was glad his salary was
cut -off because it was a subject of
embarrassment to him. But in the
afternoon he appeared in the council
chambers in a vain hunt for wages.
