RANDOM SHOTS Helpful Hint No. 93746521. Drowsiness in church is often caused by poor ventilation. Try to choose a seat where fresh air is assured. To keep awake in church when inclined to be drowsy, lift one foot a little way from the floor and keep it there. It is impossible to go to sleep with the foot poised in the air. This simple rem edy is very effectual. An Indiana polf player lost all of his front teeth when he wa. hit by a prolf club. It is believed to be the RTeatest number of holes ever made at one shot.

If it's a case of a revengeful repub lican party gelling even with a poor democrat, we think it ought to be known that we are still holding the sack for the Cox-Kooseve't tluo.

Maybe the hosiery inspection at the high school is justifiable, after all. But this tale makes us wonder if it is bemg done thoroughly. If so, where do they roll 'em when they start for home? Today'H Best Story. The mere pedestrian stepped square ly in front of the on-rushing automo bile. There was a grinding of brakes, the smell of rubber scorched by fric tion, and the dull thud of a human body on the cold brick pavement. Men shuddered and even strong women fainted by the wayside. Tenderly they gathered up the crushed and bleeding semblance to mortal form and carried it into a nearby drug store. A police surgeon responded to the rail and took masterful charge of the situation. "Stand back!" he command ed the curious onlookers. "Stand back and c-ive the man air and you, proprietor, bring him a drink of whis ky." . . The injured mans eye-lids fluttered, ...

The captain chose shrewdly. "Doctor's un able seaman, and Cath's a good engineer. I'll take Jack. He's tough as the toenails o' Mosea." Drenched and weary, they reached the lighthouse at last.

"Captain Hatch was taken sick this noon, with chills," he said. "He couldn't get warm. He lay down and I put hot things flat Irons and stove lids around him. "Tills afternoon he grew feverish, and tutor went completely out of his head and thought I was trying to get up Into the tower to barm the light. He struck .me on the head with a flat iron.
