Says . There Is . Not a Straight Hair In
III Head and Secures the Acquittal of
His Client The End Not Yet.
There was only one case in the city
court to-day and 'that brought to light a
strange state of afiulrs. Telisphor Phce
iii was charged with injury to the prop
erty of Edward Beaulac at 250 Charles
street. Beaulac said that he rented a
tenement to rhauiix last August.
Later he had Constable Iligney store the
furniture in one of the rooms of the
tenement and locked it up. The reason
was that' Phoenix was working out of
town and owed oyer one month's rent.
Phoenix, he said, went over there yes
terday, broke open the door and took
the furniture away.
Judge Lowe appeared for Phcenix,
and before he got through with Beaulac
the latter was sorry he brought the case.
Beaulac admitted that he failed a short
time ago, but that his property had all
been deeded to him again.
"Your case is in the probate court
now,' said Judge Lowe, "and that is
the way you cheated your creditors.
There isn't a straight hair in j our head,
and 111 have ypu in jail before 1 get
through with you.'
Phoenix and his witness, Louis La
point, testified that no notice had been
served on Plut'inx to quit; that he ten
dered Beaulac 10.:i5 for the rent, in his
saloon; that Beaulac refused to take it ;
that he went to bherifl'Iiigney and ten
dered the amount of the rent, and liigney
wanted 6 costs, also; that he refused to
give it and then went to the house,
found the door open and took out his
furniture. He has a wife and three
children and is
working iu Yales-
Judge Cowell wanted to know if Phoe
nix would pay the rent now.
tkI guess not,' said. Judge Lowe,
"We tendered Beaulac his money twice
and we are through. Don't pay him
one cent," he said, turning to Phoenix.
"I sent him to Beaulacs myself and
told him to break open the door with an
ax and get his furniture.'
"We ought to have Judge Lowe on
this complaint,1' said Attorney Webster,
lie added, however, that no crime had
been proven and uoiled the case.
Judge Lowe at once said he would
bring suit for trespass against Beaulac

A err small newsboy, who had just
Bold his list paper, leaned against the
iron lamppost and shouted with all his
lung power: "Pa-i-i-perl Twelvy-claek
pa-i-i-per! Extry twelvy -clack 1"
The boy was working overtime, either
from force of habit or because of his
natural exuberance. It is not uncom
mon in Calhoun place for a boy to stop
short and yell several times, merely to
relievo himself.
It happened that a pedestrian was at
tracted by the shouts cf the boy against
the lamppost. He smiled as he looked
at the youngster and then said, "All
right, give me oiig of your papers. ' '
That startled the boy. Ho looked
sheepishly at the man, rubbed his hand
into his pocket and said, "I ain't got
o'clock paper?"
"Yes, but I didn't mean" It was
too much of an explanation. A professor
of psychology who had studied the laws
cf unconscious cerebration might have
told why the boy stood on the corner
shouting papers when he had no papers
to sell, but the boy adopted a less diffi
cult course and ran away. Chicago
Taking Exercise.
Poor Harry Shehriau, tho long haired
poet who dressed , his entire person to
resemble Buffalo Bill, and who vas, in
fact, . staitlingly like tho greatest cf

friend of his who had a novel method
of tailing exercise. Ilia workshop was !
on tho top floor oi his house, far from !
the noise of the street, and he used to
write about 15 hours a day. He was

in anyone day. Ha worked, ho labored,
ho toiled. Ho had no time for a bicycle"
and could not afford a horse. Ho hated
walking. Run ho could not. Swimming
was out of the question. Still he must
have exercise. Ho kept his dictionary in
the basement and his thesaurus in the
kitchen. As he, used both very often it
was necessary to make many trips down
stairs and up again, and in that way ho
kept himself in splendid physical condi
