'Twas she —Natalie Alt.
And what do you suppose the

She was athlrst for information

busy and distributed the ambassa

suggested it was asserted that the
strongest pressure was brought
to bear for certain candidates.
Some of the names suggested were

JERRY--WHO DIDN'T WAIT FOR HIS VACATION ON THE FARM
owner wa speculative of
how much Jerry would bring
at the sjilt'B stable.
Jerry was sold off at last,
when he was a year old.
Maybe he rubbed his
mouse-colored, velvety nose
against his mother's shoul
der in farewell when they
haltered him and led him
oft; maybe not —for he was
only a horse.
So began Jerry's servitude
to Man.
Jerry was a good worker.
He didn't shirk at the heavy
loads, and he didn't nip nor
kick; he did his blue-grass
ancestry proud, so Tom Mc-
Carthy says.
"But It's hearsay with me,
you might Bay," says Tom
McCarthy, "because I only

Onee —a long time ago—
Tom had read in a newspaper
of how rich folk retire their
faithful horses when the au
tumn of life creeps on; put
them out to pasture where
they end their days in work
free contentment and plenty.
"Jerry has been a good old
horse for us," Tom told his
wife at Christmas time, "and
I'm going to give him a
darned good New Year pres
ent."
"A feed-bag?" asked Mrs.
Tom—who has no imagina
tion, bless her.
"No .sirree," replied Tom
grandly. "I'm going to bend
Jerry out to Jake Ander
son's ranch to run wild; he
ain't got to do any more
work for anybody. He's earn
ed a vacation —for life."
Mrs. Tom agreed tliit it
would be "Just lovely" and
the next day Tom McCarthy
bought another horse, a fine
bay, for $110 to step into old
Jerry's place; or to occupy
his stall, at least.

sentences in the federal prison ai

according to former Mayor P. H,
McCarthy, president of the state
bunding trades council.
And on New. Year's day,
old Jerry was to go out to
the Spanaway ranch for his
long, long vacation.
"No more work for ye, old
sport," said Tom McCarthy,
as he heaped in an extra
measure of warm bran mash
on New Year's eve, and
mauled the faithful beast's
ears affectionately. "Ye're
goin' on a vacation; It's re
tirin' ye are. Ain't ye glad,
ye old divll? Why don't
ye laugh?"
Tom was always talking to
Jerry in that fashion; It wan
a way he had, and Jerry
seemed to understand.
So Tom went back to the
house, calling out a "Happy
New Year" to old Jerry, and
chuckling whimsically to
himself.
"What a swell time that
old feller will have out there
on the ranch," thought Tom
McCarthy, "Jest klckin' up
his heels and eatin' his head

Preparations were then made,
McCarthy said, to take the mat
ter up with a local bonding com
pany so that the surety concern
might proceed through its eastern
representatives to secure the re
leaves of the prisoners.
The next morning—New
•Year's day—Tom went out to
harness old Jerry in style for
the drive to Spanaway.
Mrs. Tom was going along,
too, to see that Jerry
was comfortably established
where he wa« to end his days
in poace and quiet and
plenty.
"My, my," cried Tom
briskly, as he slammed open
the stable door. "Get up
there, ye lazy old thief —ain't
ye comin' on your vacation?"
But there was no answer
