City Clerk McClelland was out one
night last week with "the boys," and
stayed so late that when he got home
the folks were sound asleep and the
door locked. After making disturb
ance enough to wake the dead and
disturb all the neighbors, Mc ambled
down to the livery barn, waked Dick
up and called up Central to try and
wake his folks up from the inside, he
couldn't make it from the outside.
It was a failure, but by Mc going
back and pounding on the door and
central calling h regular fire alarm
the door was finally opened. Mc
should have w night key, but if he
had he would probably be out every
night. Naughty Mc.
We have TWO cars,
and, as usual, have
them bought right, so
you know where to buy.
