Springfield, Nov. 8. A pipe may
sometimes serve as a good substitute
for a revolver when suddenly drawn
from a hip pocket for a bluff for
footpads, but Frcd Thompson will
think twice before he tries It again.
He got Into a quarrel In a cigar
stoie last night and flashed the stem
end or his pipe. Ho was promptly
arrested nnd this morning had to
appear In police court after a night
In tho city prison on a charge of
carrying concealed weapons. He was
released when the facts became

the hot water and allowed It to run
until It had overflowed the bath tub
and poured over the side and onto

screamed in agony for help, but It
wns almost midnight before her cries
were answered, and when she was
finally rescued she was almost dead.
The doctors were at onro called, and
gave her medical attention, but she
was so unuiy nuniea mat sue couui
