Yesterday, is Returned
BLOWS IN RAILROAD FARE
That Had Been Forwarded to Him
From Chicago by His
' t Wife.
When Charles O'Neill was released
from the county jar, where he had
served a sentence of three months,
yesterday, he started for a railroad of
fice to buy a ticket for his home in
Chicago. He had written, his wife, tell
ing her of his plight and she sent him
$5 to buy return transportation.
On the way to the railroad office the
money began tj burn in O'Neill's
pocket and he dropped in at one of
the saloons atid took a swig of the
hack drivers-del:ght. It wi the first
drop he ha4;fted since he woke up
in the county prison after a jamboree
in Moline. It went right to the spot.
O'Neill thought it was not just the
thing to carry a lonesome, so ho gave
the first one company.
Then his light went out, he told
Magistrate G. A. Johnson, before wl.om
he was tried this morning on a charge
of malicious mischief. O'Neill late in
the afternoon was arrested in Ferd
Gross' saloon, on Twentieth street,
between First and Second avenues,
where he had put his heel through a
window of a door. He was arrested
by Officer James Brinn. He was held
to the grand jury in bond of $200.
This will keep him a prisoner at the
county jail until the meeting of the
May grand jury, un!oss in the mean

Tessie sighed as she shoved a cup of
coffee to the bartender who had drop
ped in for his breakfast later than us
ual. "Me and Sade went last night,'
"No, Sade ain't here any more. Not
since last summer. She picked up with
a blue-eyed pretty boyrwith long curly
hair that said his father3ad lots of
ZimoRev Him and "Sade' Went over to
Scheutzen one night, and he made
reputation for himself, flooring two of
those low-browed boys from the west end
who said that Sade was a bum spieler,
"That made him strong with Sade,
That was his play, I guess, for he eat
here for a month on his nerve, and
Sade had to pay for the meal ticket
The fellow said that his father had
been away from home, but as soon as
he got back he would be flush again.
But father did not seem to return, for
Sade's crush vanished, and I have
never heard of him since.
Inj For M-al Ticket and In Klrcd.
"Well, Sade paid what she had com
ing on his meal ticket. It was not
enough, and the boss cut her out. He
told her she was soft. And I guess she
was then. But now she's the wisest
kid that ever handed a doughnut over
the counter, Tom, and don't you never
forget it, neither.
"Say, Tom. I believe I am gettin
batty. Every time I stay up late my
noodle refuses to work. I started to
tell you about the dance. Well, me
and Sade went. We had invites by
t he plenty, but we would not stand for
the company. We decided that this
winter we would do the dances alone.
It's the best plan, we have found. You
see, a girl will accept Tin invite to be
taken to a ball, and before she knows
it her escort is down and out under a
load of beverage. Then she has to
fake him home insteadof him taking
her honied Me and Sade one night
walked 14 blocks with a soft one who
had three lemonades and a scoop. We
placed him on the front porch, rang the
door bell, and then flew. His mother,
I don't think, has allowed him to be
outside of the house after S:30 since.
No. me and Sade went alone.
tr ' Km lllom In. Klunh. '
"Great mocha, ain't it, Tom? You
know, everyone who has been in this
meirning has hollered for the second
cup. How long have you been eating
doughnuts for breakfast? I suppose
you will be asking for pie and onions
next. That cup will cost you another
nick, you know. We got to the hall
at 9: CO, but of course the crowd did
not wake up until about midnight. We
knew the most of the boys and girls,
but of course we could not get through
the evening without having something
that we never looked for happen. Who
should blow in with a lovely bun on
abemt 11 o'clock but Ben that's his
name' the boy with the yellow hair
and the blue eyes, for whom Sade lost
her job last summer. Sade tried not
to have him recognize her, but he
wasn't in the hall five minutes before
he copped her. Well, that was about
all there was to it. We danced our
fool heads off. Ben would have Sade
for his partner in one dance and then
ho would take me next.
Wouldn't Mnud for Another.
"Ben does certainly love his liquor,
and, of course?, whenever he went for
a visit to the mahogany he insisted on
we girls going along, hut he would not
stand for another fellow. He said he
wanted to show Sade fiat he was not
such a bad actor as she had reason to
think. He aske'd hr-r how much she
had to pay for his board, and she toli
him a ten-spot. He forked the money
over to her wit hern another word. On
the dead he did. He had greenbacks
in every pocket. He told Sade that he
had just heard from father. He said
that father had been called away to
South America on business while he
was in the city running around with
Sade, and didn't get back for thre-e
months. Confident ialTy. I think he is
a four-flusher. He looks like a cheap
gambler or race-track tout to me. But
he's got Sade mesmerized for fair. He
thinks she's just a dandy girl, and I
want to teil you. Tom, that she is. Of
course, she will hoist a beer occasion
ally, but that is nothing against her.
Itj For the f rond.
