The email turn of $1.25 wu the in

White, colored. Buffering a rolling pin

member for many moons.
Yesterday was payday for White
and It had always been his custom
In the past to bring his hard earned
dough home to his helpmate. Last
night, however. George met an old
friend shortly after he had slipped his
roll In his Jeans and It was suggested
that they have a few "half and halfs,"
for old time's sake. The cocktails
tickled George's palate to such a de
gree that he loaded on a cargo too
heavy for one man to pilot around
alone In safety.
When White reached his domicile
he was shy $1.25 from the amount he
usually tendered to wifey. A heated
altercation followed which had its de
nouement In a marathon race up Sec
ond avenue and thence down Twen
tieth street to the Burlington depot
where Whlt met his Waterloo.
It was bant;, slam, biff, with Mrs.
White officiating in the star role with

HOPES TO WINT CASE
m niGIIEIi COURT
t " ' : : . . '
Signorlna Tharaaa, Labriola.
Rome, Italy. Six months ago Big
nortna Theresa Labriola, the brilliant
daughter of an Italian jurist, passed
the Italian bar examinations, and was
duly admitted to practice law In Italy.
Never before had a woman been ad
mitted to practice the profession here,
and conservative old Judges through
out the realm got their heads together
and determined to find a pretext for
keeping Signorlna Labriola out of their
courts. They finally concluded that her
name could be stricken from the rolls
on constitutional grounds and accord
ingly the Rome court of appeals held
that she had no right to practice In
Now Signorlna Labriola has appeal
ed her ( Be to the highest court in the
kingdom and Awaits with confidence Its
decision. The point laid bold of by the
lower court 1 that a law of 1874 reg
ulates the leal profession, the code
simply assuming that a lawyer is of
the male sex. It does not forbid a
woman to practice, but merely falls to
embody the idea of such a contingency.
Signorlna Labriola believes that the
highest court constitution did not fore
fa: the feminist movement she has
iS rU;ht to practice law.
The decision of the Rome court Is
likely to assist the feminists through
the agitation It must produce In favor
of Signorlna Labriola, who has bril
liantly vindicated her suitability for
the profession since her nomination
six months ago. She has pleaded
more than one cause with an eloquence
and forensic learning that would do
credit to a seasoned barrister; she be
longs to a distinguished literary family
and has graduated with full honors at
the Rome university. Nofhlng could
be brought against her but the fact
that she is a woman.

A Story About a Certain Favorite Corset
THE REGIS -
Famous for Style and Comfort
The Regis corsets are shining examples of how qual
ity will count. They are planned originally to be dur
able .comfortable and inexpensive.
They are still all these and more they are today
the most fashionable models for the very best dressel
When we first took the sellng agency for these Regis
corsets, several years ago, we knew they were good cor
sets. But we scarcely knew HOW good, until one cus
tomer after another told us about it.
The simple truth was that the makers of Regis, being
accustomed to work on very fine corsets, they couldn't
keep their skill out of Regis if they tried; in consequence
the Regis have perfect line; they have correct style, made
of best materials and handsomely trimmed. Above all
they have comfort and health and the cost is as low as
$1.00 and on up to $10.00.
Do you want better health; do you seek more com
fort and grace ? You'l! find the Regis your greatest and
There is a Regis for every figure, and the broadest
guarantee with each and everyone.
Hew would you like to enter a contest for prizes from $5.00
to $1.00 for the best reasons why you like and wear the Regis?
If enough women will let ns know about how long they have
worn the Regis and as nearly as possible how maify they have
bought and If they'd like to enter a contest and will write and
let us know, we'll arrange details at once.

Freckles is a nameless waif when the tale opens, but

ships he forms in the great Limberlost Swamp, where his
