MIXED WITH THE
As principals In a brawl that
came near amount Ins to a riot,
Charles Saunders of the Sells-Floto
Show company, and 1-e Blvina, of
Amarillo, must answer complaints
filed in justice court last night
charging them with simple assault.
The fracas grew out. of the visit
of a party of Amarillo men. includ
ing several prominent citizens, to
the ahow grounds ' lant. night when
the evening performance waa nearly
over, instead of coming to the main
entrance iiid purchasing admission in
the usual way, the visitors,' without
Invitation, pushed into the tent for
performing homes. This tent also
includes the dressing rooms of the
actor and Is Joined to the big tent
hy the entrance for the performers,
lfere the visitors were told to go
the main entrance to get Into the
show. .This admonition failed of ef
fect and one of the men pushed on.
At. the time the' boss hoafler was In
rharge of th entrance In directing
the equstrian acts. When the man
failed to go back the hosier, ft"' f
to appreciate either the prominence
or good Intentions of the intruder
smashed him w-lth a cane.
In a flash there whs an Interchange
of blows that left the Amarillo man
with a punctured countenance. Then
the police organization of the show
grounds quickly asserted i'self, one
of the main combjtanta In the per
son of the boss hostler was whisked
out of sight and more cool-headed
leaders of the show company threw
themselves Info the mob to quiet
the dls.turbine. The showmen
called for offli ern and sought to
turn the entire difficulty over to th
proper authorltlei but the aggrieved
man snd some of his hot-headed
friends persisted in looking for the
msn w-ho had hit him and for other
trouble. Finally, however, the Ama
rillo princlpils wero taken up town
and the critical part of the difficulty
After the combatants hsd been
separated the trouble thrcaicned to
break out. in another way by the at
tempt on the part of some of the
Amarillo men to have the entire show
held up a day to answer In court for
the difficulty. The nhow managers
had a ted promptly In their part of
the nia'ter, had produced the hostler
who Immediately demanded and
made iash bond and Instructed the
officer to plead guilty for him on
the charee of simple nssault. On
this chirge no further action could
be trfken agatl k the nhow company
and bonie of , lie Interested parties
sought to get'li more serious hold
on the show people by toming down
town and swearing out a complaint
charging aault with Intent to kill.

Among- the amusing instances of the
humor of the parish clerk that are told
la a itory cf a clerk' who went to
aleep na the preacher went into the
pulpit Thnt day the parson had pre
pared a particularly impressive aer
mon, dividing It, according to custom.
Into many parts. Wbea the "firstly"
was concluded the parson psused for
bresth. and the clerk, awaking and
believing that the discourse had come
to an end, pronounced the usual "Arc
men" in a very loud voice.
The congregation arose, and the serv
ice ended abruptly. ,As the squire
passed out he slipped n coin Into the
old clerk's hand, whispering: "You
managed that very well, Thomas. I'll
give you the same next time."

ried In to tell him that the people

"Let them sing another psalm," said
the curate. "Tbey have, elr," replied
the clerk. "Then let them sing the

the laconic reply. Having finished bis
pipe, he began to put on his gown, but
the folds were troublesome. "I think

A noncommissioned officer entering
a barrack gate in Dublin was mistaken
by the "fresh one" on sentry go, who
immediately saluted him. The non
commissioned officer, unaware that his
colonel was Just behind, returned the
salute, a thlug not permissible under
the circumstance!. Arrived at hie
quarters, he waa surprised to find an
order for hlra to attend before the
colonel. On presenting himself be waa
asked how he came to return the sa
lute, knowing full well he waa not en
titled to it
Not In the least embarrassed, fc
promptly answered, "Sir, I always re
turn everything I am not entitled to."
