Bert and Bertha Spring' a Surprise on the Police
ST. LOUIS. Somebody beenme suspicions of Bert Schmidt. He was re
ported to tho police ns n probable German spy. The police looked him lip
mid found Mint ho whs n young fellow of twenty-three, IIvIiir with n wife
to whom lie win married October 11!
by n Justice of the pence. The Schmidt
establishment looked nil rllit to tho
police, but they put Schmidt under ur
rest. The police were In for n surprise.
At tho police Htntlon Bert stoutly main
tained that ho wim nit rlujit. He pro
duced n registration curd. Ho sulil he
wns it HmiKiirinii by birth, but u Kootl
American mill willing to do his hit.
About this time It was discovered that
tlimtL'li Iter! ml I'll t Iik n lrmiil Ainerli'illl
he was nti Aineilenn woman, not nil American mini. Theieiipon the police
became more Interested In the wniinni pluiso of the cum- than In tho np.v
business. They nrroMed the "wife" imtl then Held mi Informal court to clear
up the mystery. Policemen ure Just as etiilous as mijbodj else In St. Louis
It was nil verv simple. There was no deep, dark mystery about It. Bert
wasn't n Geiinan n.v. The Informal court flunlly came t" ihw conclusions:
Bert's name Is Ilerthn Schmidt.
Ills wife's inline Is Mary Ashate.
They are natives of Hungary mid cousins.
Bertha dressed us n nan In order to p't n man's wages.
The upshot of It t,s Mint Mary was released.

I Tried to Do My Duty as a Boy Scout, Mother"
SOUTH ORANGE N". .1. The Boy Scouts of America are pledged to "do n
good turn dully." This "good turn" Is done both to mini and beast. It
ranges from lllllns: mother's wood box to feeding u hungry dog. There Is no
limit to Its scope. Gordon Seyfrled, it
liny scout twelve curs old. inn up
iigulnst something new In the wny of
doing his dully good turn, lie found his
mother's inulil In the act of shooting
Gordon saw bis chance to do n
good turn. It was not only hltf chance
hut his duty, as lie saw It. So he
tried to tear the revolver from the
Tho revolver was discharged. The
bullet passed throuuh the maid's body.
Inlllctlns a wound Mm! will probably prove filial. Then It struck tho young
boy scout In the throat.
Just before (Jut don died In his mother's nrms he wbl-pered to her:
"I saw Paulino with the pistol and 1 tried to do my duty as n boy scout."
This Is the spirit that has raised a vast army of Boy Scouts of America
and has broken down every bnrriep'of race nnd caste and creed. Of course
there Is more to the boy spout movement than Just doing n good turn daily.
Boy scouts camp out and explore and wigwag anil extend llrst aid to the
Injured and help In municipal and national movements and make themselves
useful members of tin community. The boy scout Is loynl, helpful, friendly,
courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty and brave or at least ho tries
to be. He stands for clean speech, clean habits, clean sport.
Yet the boy scout Is hi no danger of being made Into an angelic boy.
If he were, nobody would have any use for him and the movement would
have died long ago.
"I tried to do my duty as a boy scout" should he carved on the tombstone
of Gordon Seyfrled.
