Coyote Hoiked to Sleep KIMUALL If you are attacked by a vicious coyote several miles from your home, and your only moans of transportation for a hasty getaway was an old crippled pony, what would you do? Mrs. Henry Teare, living aibout twenty miles from this city, in Colorado, found herself in this trying plight recently. Her husband was at tending a public sale and Mrs. Teare took her old pony and left to get the cattle. Two shepherd dogs accompa nied her. When more than a mile from the house she was attacked by a vicious coyote. She first attempted to speed up her pony and return to the house, but the pony was no match for the coyote's speed. She then stopped the pony and set the dogs on the coyote. Fortunately they made the attack, and as soon as they had Kained a hold she dismounted. Gath- IMPERIAL TONIGHT Wm. S.

SCOTTSBLUFF After the farm hand has completed his temporary work, and his labors have been satis factory, a letter of recommendation or statement of his ability which" tould be used in representing himself in an other county, would serve as a good means of providing farm hands with Church, who lives southeast of here in the Dubois district.

Mr. and Mrs. Burton I lay worth of Columbus are to be congratulated upon the manner in which they foiled the highwayman who held them up on the streets of their town. The process was so simple one wonders it was not long ago universally adopted. Mr. and Mrs. Haworth simply ele vated their hands as commanded and permitted the highwayman to rifle their pockets of sixty cents. How long would the business of highway robbery last were everybody sensible enough to have not over sixty cents on their persons when on the street at night? No man can afford to hold up another on the chance o getting sixty cents. For every once in a while a highwayman gets caught. And no attainable number of sixty- cent holdups could yield compensation adequate to offset a prison sentence for highwaymanry. At sixty cents a holdup the business would simply die out for want df adequate profit. This remedy for highwaymanry could be applied with equal effective ness to the burglar business. A night or two ago a burglar entered the home of Senator Charles B. Anderson in this city. From the pockets of Mr. Anderson's trousers he extracted th munificent fuiti of approximately thir ty dollars. That was profitable business. With the utmost respect for Mr. An- derson, we hold that he is not entit'ed j to much sympathy for his loss. Mr. Anderson is or has been a banker, yet he permitted himself to go to sleep' with thirty dollars in his trousers pocket. Why wasn't it in the bank, where he must have known it would be safe? , Thus, innocently but with culpable carelessness, Senator Anderson made burglary profitable. He has been the means of encouraging that burglar to try, try again. We beg Senator An derson and all men besides to join vol untarily the association to which so many of us belong automatically and by compulsion. We mean the associa tion of those whose pookets, by choice or necessity, present utterly unproi it able picking to burglars and highway men. Let such an example as Mr. and Mrs. Haworth have set be univer sally followed, and burglar and high wayman will have to choose quickly between honst work and jumping into the well. PLACE BAN ON KNICKERS. Baitimoi-e business men may not be more modest than thoe of other cities but they have risen as one against the movement among the working girls of Baltimore, who were planning to adopt knickerbockers as their busi ness dress. The reason given for their opposition is that knickers on the girU would distract the attention of the male clerks ar.d would decrease their efficiency.

Kin dling is necessary. For the same reason, the heavier fractions of gasoline can't give you instant ignition, snappy pick-ups and full power and mileage unless there is an ample supply of low-boiling point fractions to act as kindling. Straight-distilled gasoline possesses these boiling point fractions in correct propor tions. That is why Red Crown Gasoline is uniformly satisfactory. It is straight-distilled gasoline that meets every requirement of the U. S. Government specifications for . motor gasoline. There is no better gasoline for cold weather use.
