THE AKeUS, MONDAY, JUNE 30,' 1902;
HERE arc two values to every purchase
what it costs and what it pays you. Cork
costs 8 cents a pound, but if you are drown
ing half a mile from shore, its value would
be "not what you pay for cork, but what cork saves
you." When a woman buys soaps she often con
fuses the two values. She sees only what she pays.
She overlooks what she receives. Now a single
cake of Ivory Soap pays back from ten to twenty
times its cost in the saving it effects. Test it your

back for his things. A "growler

a short argument Mr. and Mrs. Evans

coal shovel and whaled away
through the door catching the party

WAGER A DEAR ONE
Edward Meenan Jumps Fom
Embankment and is Seri
ATTEMPTS TO WIN ITVE CENT BET
Both Bones or Ijeft Ankle Frac
tured Sent to Hos
pital. Boyish recklessness yesterday led
Edward Meenan, son of Mr. and Mrs.
Frank Meenan, 2702 Eighth avenue, to
attempt a feat that scut him .to the
hospital with both bones of his left
ankle badly f ractured.
Edward, who is 14 years of age,
was playing with a number of other
boys about the waterworks at the
foot of Twenty-fourth street.
Tied to the shore in the log runway
north of the waterworks was an
empty barge,, and the boys fell to
bantering each other to jump from
the bank which is formed of rat
tlings and is 10 or 12 feet high, down
to the deck of the barge.
Vouiig Meenan whs dared to try it,
and finally one of the boys bet him
a nickel thai he was afraid. The
money was put up and the lad pre
pared to make the leap. The other
boj-s became alarmed and tried to
..ssnade him, but he declared he
would jump if it killed him, and
jump be did.
Companion Summon Help.
When he was unable to rise the
other boys hurried to the water
works for help and a couple of the
men there carried the injured lad
into the building. From there he
was taken first to his home and
thence to St. Anthony's hospital in
the ambulance, where Dr. DeSilva
reduced the fracture.
