GYPSIES IN LOVE
WITH DEADLY PILL

Had Lucy Page Gaston, the avowed
enemy of the deadly elgaret, been In
Koclc Island this morning to witness
the sights around four movers' wag
ons. Inhabited by Innumerable gyp
sies of assorted sizes and hues, she
would undoubtedly bare turned red,
white and blue. About a dozen lU"lc :
tcts, male and female, ranging In age '
from four to nine years, were swarm
ing upon the curbstone, soliciting ,
aims and smokies cigarets. A 'iit'le!
ftirl of five stepped up to a bystanJ-;
-r and lisped: "Gimme a clgaret
paper, mister, will you?"
"What do you want with It?"
"I want to make a clgaret."
"Well, you'll need some tobacco,
. "1 sot tobacco," she said, and fish
ing down into her apron pocket sho
brought out a half-used package ot
The paper was donated and tho
barefooted tot concocted the Delan
with the ease and dexterity of a con
noisseur. A little feltow of about eight
"mooched" some smoking from the re
porter and had half consumed the pill,
taking drep inhalations, when Mamma
intervened, and calling the kid over,
lapped him across the- head, took the
rlgaret away from him and began to
smoke it herself.
The party is roving overland headed
n the general direction of Ohio.

There are only one, or two diseases
that ran be cured by medicine. In all
others the medicine is given merely
to stimulate the natural production of
antitoxins. If we knew how to make

Various other boys will pretend to be

Bang! goes the vice president's gavel,
and the extraordinary session ot pages
has convened. There Is always aa
argument as to which senator shall
be recoguUed when the regular order
of business Is reached. Every conceiv

Curious Duel Between a Pair f Fire
In the awash buckling day of the
early part of the nineteenth century
the dueling hero In France was the
Marquis Merle de Salnte-Marle, whone
affairs of honor were almost Incessant.
Ono of these Is said to have been so
ridiculous that it helped to set In mo
