METHODS USED BY DIPS VARY
Pickpockets of the Higher Grade Work
in Groups in Places Frequented
by Prosperous People.
! As a usual thing, pickpockets vary
their methods to suit circumstances.
Only the low-grade dips work in pairs.
These are the men who operate on
street cars, elevated stations, plat
forms, and similar places where thry
will find crowds of pushed people and
have opportunity to escape if detected.
One of the pair shoulders a victim
roughly while the other does the work
and makes a getaway, says the Bo
hemian. Arrests are frequent, but con
victions rare, because the man cap
tured seldom has the loot
The higher grade dips also work in
such places. The difference is that
they work in groups and choose times
when prosperous passengers will be in
the majori t y. During the fashionable
shopping hours and after the theater
at night are considered harvest times.
Last winter throe dips worked a clever
method in Chicago. Garbing them
selves in evening clothes, they mingled
in fashionable crowds in big cafes,
theater exits, and railway stations.
One of the pajty was always hopeless
ly drunk and the others, apparently
acting the par^t of Samaritans, were
hard-put trying to keep him on his
feet. With all their care, however, he
would stumble occasionally and fall
into groups of ladies and gentlemen.
Invariably the sober companions had
apologized and taken the charge away
before anj-one discovered the loss of
WHERE RATS ARE PROTECTED
In Copper Mines of Michigan Rodents
Are Regarded as Preventors, Not
Carriers, of Disease.
There are few places in the world
where rats are well thought of, but in
the copper mines of Michigan there ro
dents, so universally despised, and'
causing so much danger to health and j
damage to property everywhere else,
are regarded differently. In the shafts |
of the copper mines hundreds of feet :
below the surface dwells a species of ;
rat that never sees the light of day J
and is held in high appreciation by;
the miners. It is because these under- !
ground rodeuts are valuable to sanlta- j
tion, preventers rather than carriers
of disease. They indulge in no depre-1
dations for the reason they exist with- j
in rockbound walls inclosing nothing1
possible for animals such as they de
The rats are the scavengers of the
mines. They keep the workings clear,
of refuse. They are protected by the i
men ; are often fed from dinner pails j
and have become GO accustomed to
jthe miners that they frisk about the
workers wholly unafraid, secure in the
hpparent realization that, while else
where they are hunted and slain as
enemies of mankind, underground they
are treated as allies and are immune'
Wives as Wage Earners.
More than one-tenth of the married
women of the United States were en
gaged in gainful occupations in 1910,
according to figures recently given out
hy the bureau of the census, and over
25 per cent of all women sixteen
years old or over were wage earners,
business women, etc. Since 1910 the
per ccntages undoubtedly have in
creased rather than diminished, for
the tendency of women in this coun
try has been toward greater economic
freedom for many years. In 1900 the
number of married women In gainful
occupations was only 769,000, while in
1910 it was l.SOO.OOO, says Popular Me
chanics. The statistics referred to
show that the proportion of women
married, sintrle and widowed-who are
earning their living is greater than
ever before, but it is particularly in
teresting to find that of all the groups
cited, the proportionate increase in
the number of married women is the
The hunters' moon is waning, but
there has been very little service for
lt during the month, except for lovers,
says the Columbus (O.) State Journal.
The gajme question is pretty near
solved. It is so different from the old
days, when a man could take his shot
gun and go out to the woods and bring
In a bag of squirrels and birds in a few
hours-enough for the family and a
neighbor or two. Then he asked no
favors of the moon. The game was
plenty and the days were long in the
good old time. In those days we had
pigeon pie and squirrel pie and we
didn't want the moon to put itself out
of the way on our account. In these
days the hunters' moon is a beautiful
sentiment, but it makes no pie. How
shy sho was last week, when coquet
?ng with Jupiter for an evening or two,
and then slipped off to the east and re
fused to return.
The Footwear of Our Daddies.
In these days, when shoes cost $1 or
more an inch, measured up from the
heel, the recollections of a Callaway
county pioneer really are painful. In
a letter to the Missouri Telegraph he
tells what a simple matter buying
shoes once was. Those who wanted
shoes lined up with their heels against
a wall and the head of the household,
armed with a bunch o." twigs, took
the measurement of each. The twigs
were taken to a merchant, who fitted
the shoo by putting the broken stick
Inside it. One farmer objected to pay
ing $14.87 for ten pairs of shoes, so
he bought leather and hired a shoe
maker to make them at a grand total
af $9.15.-Kansas City Times.
Relating to School Funds.
The .County Board of Education
has not been able to make appor
tionment ot school funds from the
fact that State Tax* Commission has
not made ruling on assessed valua
tion of corporations. The apportion
ment will be made as early as we
hear from the commission. There
ia nothing to materially change ap
portionment from last year.
