day Is Jonah Day.
Lotrte Fromelt went to the county
Jail this morning for a 10-day .stay as
the Tetralt of his having become very
obstreperous last evening. After
spending the afternoon in making a
round of the saloons In the lower end
of the city he went to a lodging house
and applied for a room. He was tank
ed to a frazzle and when he was told
that the house was filled and that
there was no room for him he announc
ed that he had come for a room and
that lie intended to get one even If he
had to drive some one else out of his
bed. The lady who conducts the
house remonstrated with him, but
matters went from bad to worse and
he finally tried to strike her, where
upon she summoned the police and had
him arrested. This morning he told
Police Magistrate C. J. Smith that he
did not know what he had done, as he
had been too drunk to be in his right
OFFENDER BACK AfiAIV
Friday the 13th proved an unlucky
day Indeed for many people In the
city and it was especially disastrous
to John Murphy, who was released In
the morning from the county Jail and
to "William Dunn, who drew a fine of
$3 and costs Thursday morning for
having got drunk Wednesday night.
Both ended up in the police station.
Murphy had just completed serving 40
days. He was released in the morn
ing and was out about four hours be
fore he had a jag on which entitled
him to a trip to jail. Dunn drew all
of his $30 savings from a Davenport
bank Wednesday and started out to
get drunk. He did so and was jailed
and fined. He immediately went out
and got another bunn on and yester
day afternoon he was arrested as a
precautionary measure. He was slip
ping and falling down about every 10
steps and his face was all bruised
and battered up. Dunn had enough
money left to pay a fine of $1 and
costs and Murphy was sentenced to
fclx months In jail on a charge of vag
rancy but the fine was suspended upon
condition that he go to work and re
main soler in the futuie, which he
promised to do.

Can his eyes be called an academy
Because there are pupils there?
In the crown f his head what gems

And who can tell the cut and style
Of the coat hts stomach wears?
