The Battered Brothers! of the Rich
lounged in non executive session on a
side-tracked gondola-car at Lethargy
Landing. Four in number, they had
been thrown together by the cosmic
swirl which governs the movements
of the derelict. Volition to them was
a negative factor.
“Say, fellows,” Semarked Phono
graph Pete, “I’ll bet that the man who
i Invented work was a professional la
bor agitator.
' “What you want to talk about work
: for?” growled Sleepy Sam. “You make
! me tired.”
r “I rise to a point of order,” inter
j rupted Loquacious Louie. “If Pete is
[ prompted to put in a record merely
e for the sake of standing before his
own megaphone and hearing himself
vociferate, I protest, but if he can

quality of novel entertainment, I’m no
“What you got on your mind, Pete?"
asked Pugilistic Patrick.
“A couple of years ago,” began Pete.
“I was doing some topographic re
search work up in Pennsylvania. In
vestigating the lay of the land with
an eye to the future. Locating havens
of rest where a fellow might secure
three meals and liberty without the
consequent enuul of ringing up on the
“One day, after shaking the dust of
a bum burg from my clothes and the
constable from my trail, I hit the rail
road track a few miles out and wait
ed the arrival of my private car. There
must have been a holiday on the line,
for nothing came along, and I was
finally forced to locomote by my own
powers of locomotion.
“A little farther on, the village
loomed into view. It was a fair-look
ing town, judging from my point of
vantage, and I hoped to add it to my
list of eligible localities.
“The sight of Unit likely looking
burg put ginger into my hhlting foot
steps, and 1 soon arrived at the out
skirts. There was a string of cars
drawn up on a siding along the fence
which surrounded some buildings.
“I was wondering what kind of plant
it might lie, when on passing a place
where the string of cars was broken
about fifteen feet. I saw painted on the
fence in huge white letters against a
black background:
“I quickly put out my pipe, which I
was smoking, and stuck it in my pock
et. I had no desire to start on an ex
pedition in search of the milkmaids up
in the milky way.
“Work, in the abstract, has never
appealed to me, and how a man in the
full possession of his faculties can as
sociate with a job in a powder fac
tory beats me.
“.Tust think, fellows, of working
along for five days with your eye on
the clock, calculating how many more
hours it is before pay-day comes
around, and then, "'lien the timepiece t
has only one more lap to go, somebody,’
does a fool thing and the whole out-j
fit blows up, sending you to. kingdom J
come with a full week’s pay uncol j
lected.” I
“Well, I knew from hearsay that a
powder works is a sort of .slumliering I
Vesuvius, so I proceeded to disassoei
ate myself from the proximity. T hot
footed it past that open space In tlie
string of cars. As I was passing the ;
car in the bunch, I happened to j
look at it, and I nearly jumped out of j
my socks when I saw a thin wreath of
smoke coming out from it.
} did a hundred-yard dash down the
trio i: in record time, then stopped, t
looked around to see if I could locate
any one who was trying to qualify for
the ‘Nobel courage prize,’ but the
pltjce was shy on candidates.
"* “I ran back to the car and tried
to open the door, hut found it locked.
I thought that if I could find out what
the car contained I could proceed more
intelligently with the first-aid stunt,
but it was a clean lockout, so I was
forced to proceed along other lines.
- Ihe smoke was pouring out in thick
volumes by this time, and I realized
that I had to get it moving pretty soon
or hustle myself out of the danger
zone. I worked the bar until I had
a crop of blisters on both hands, but
the fiery freight was immovable as a
tenement house rent collector.
“Suddenly I made the startling dis
covery that the brakes were set. I
ran around to the front end of the car,
and climbing up I quickly loosened the
brake. Then climbing down, I rushed
back and had that car going in no
“After moving it along a few feet,
tlie car started to run of its own ac
cord, and I realized that there was a
slight grade at that point, sufficient to
allow it to travel by gravity.
“I ran ahead and swung aboard. As
I climbed to the top the flames began
to eat their way through the roof, at
the rear end. I grasped the brake
wheel and spun it around so as to get
control of the car should the grade
get too stiff.
“Slowly, my fiery chariot gathered
speed, and J >.v the time we struck the
village we were exceeding the speed
limit. As we struck the crossing the
watchman rushed out of liisi shantj
and made some unintelligible remark
to me, but I kept on going. .
"I looked ahead and saw that the
track was clear for a good stretch, but
I also saw that it was down grade
Those who clamor for government
ownership overlook some very important
facts; one in particular, it is that with all
privately ownea business there is the
constant desire to develop some new
feature, or machine, or method by which
business may be improved, increased or
simplified, and greater profit insured.
With the government it is entirely differ
ent. The struggle there is to hold office,
to increase the political pull. Progress,
which is written big over all private en
terprises, ceases when one approaches
government owned lines. Here is some
thing to consider when talk is made about
taking over the railroads or any other
line of business. It would seem as though
so that there was no possibility of
stopping. On we rushed, the wind
fanning the flames, but fortunately for
me, sweeping them rearward.
“Suddenly I heard a shril^ whistle
ahead, and I realized that an engine
was on tlie same track as my car. It
had stopped about a mile off.
“ ‘Here’s where we make a sensa
tional finish,’ I said to myself. Then 1
saw the engine get into motion and
start down the track. That fellow at
the throttle certainly let her out some,
by my pyrotechnical Pullman kept
gaining on him steadily. I grew in
terested in the race, and wished that
I was close enough tc bet the engineer
on the outcome.
“Talk about the mountain of fame
being down hill on the other side!
That grade had the mountain of fame
looking level. Slowly we gained on
that engine ahead, which was speeding
like an automobile endeavoring to out
distance a pursuing fine collector.
“Ahead, in the distance, another
town came into view, and I wondered
j whether there would be a reception
i committee to greet us.
“That engineer seemed to get an
extra burst of speed out of his puff
ing engine as we neared the town, and
just as he struck the outskirts he slack
ened up. and his fireman jumped. He
ran back a short distance, and I saw
him desperately trying to throw a
switch. He got it over just in time,
and my special left the main track.
“I thought we had been going some
before, but this new line that they
had switched me onto was in a class
by itself. The fellows that laid that
track must have worked on ladders.
You’ve seen those gravity roads where
they pull trains up with a steel cable,
and let them run down by holding
them back?
“Well, that's the kind of proposition
I was up against. At the end of the
track, about a mile down, I caught a
glimpse of a river, which seemed to be
rushing up to meet me, and before i
had time to get the mental impression
registered, that carload of fire hit
something, and I made a long-distance
dive into the watery depths.
“I hit the water and went down
about a mile. When I came up, and
got the water out of my eyes, I struck
out for the shore.”
“Say, Pete," interrupted Loquacious
.Louie, “when and where did you learn
.to swim?”
“Oh,” replied Pete, “I learned to
swim before I cut my wisdom teeth. I
'was born on a canal boat. Well, as
I was saying, I struck out for the shore
like a bullfrog going a wooing. The
car had struck a bumper on the river
edge, and the wreck was burning
fiercely. By the time I had pulled
myself ashore a crowd had collected to
ienjoy the fire.
“ ‘Say, sport,’ said a fellow who
looked like a railroad man, ‘where’d
you come front?’
“ ‘Up by the powder works about
five miles back,’ I answered.
“ ‘Powder works,’ said the fellow.
‘What powder works? There ain’t no
powder works within 20 miles of this
“ ‘I guess I can read,’ I said. ‘Es
pecially when the letters happen to
be about five feet high. If that place
isn't a powder works, they ought to
take in their sign.’
“The village constable pushed
through the crowd and asked the
cause of the trouble. The railroad
looking fellow told him, and advised
that he lock me up until they found
out how I came to be joy-riding around
the country.
“The constable took me over to the
town burgess. When I told my story
he seemed to be favorably impressed.
“ ‘There is one weak point in your
story,’ he said. ‘You claim that this
car was standing alongside the powder
1 works, hut there are no powder works
within 20 miles of this place.’
1 “‘But I can take you to them,’ I In
“ ‘All right,’ he replied. ‘How far
is it?’
. " ‘About a mile straight up, and five
miles bark along the line,’ I replied.
“ ‘Jake,’ he said, turning to the con
stable, ‘hitch up my team, and we’ll
'drive up. I haven’t anything particu
lar on hand.’
' "Well, we drove up, and finally reach
led the point where I had started my trip
on the combustible limited. The pike
ran along the railroad tracks at the
: point, and as we came opposite the
lopen space in the string of cars. I told
Jake to pull up his prancing plugs.
“‘There! I said triumphantly, point
ing to the sign. ‘What does that
: “The judge and Jake gave a look,
and then burst into hilarious laugh
“ ‘Gosh ' all hemlock 1’ laughed the
judge, when he could control himself
[‘This sure is a joke on you. Come on,
Jake. Let’s take him over and show
him, and then ship him back to Mis
1 "We all got out of the wagon and
crossed the railroad tracks. They
took me through the open space in the
tstring of cars, and then the cause of
i their hilarity broke upon my astonish
1ed gaze. •
i “Painted along the whole length of
the fence, in letters like the ones Pd
read between the cars, was this:
“When I recovered my faculties, \
put distance between myself and that
beauty bulletin. As I faded from the
landscape, I beard an explosion in the
rear, hut it was only Jake and the
judge laughing.”
“Quite a difference between face pow
der and the kind you was thinking of.
Hey, Pete?” remarked Loquacious
“Oh, I don’t know,” replied Pete.
“They are both used to wage warfare
on mere man.”
we have had all the object lesson we
needed in the manner in which our rail
roads were run by the government dur
ing the war or how our ships were built.
The prayer of every thinking man will be
to be delivered from further government
ownership of industries,—Maine Farmer.
Why We Say “She”
The discussion being on why we refer
to an automobile as “she,” one man said
it was because when a car is slicked up
and attractive we all admire her; when
she acts properly she is charming; yet
we often drive her into improper action
by lack ot care, and when she gets old
and has lost her style we try to discard
her and get a more pleasing one.—Boston

I What Will Indians Do With $500,000.00?
ULUTH.—Chippewa Indians on
the Net Lake Indian reservation
i in northwestern Minnesota, who ree
! ently received approximately $r>00,000
i for timber sold from their reservation,
j will make good use of the money,
i Instead of disposing of their fortune
i for blankets, beads, tobacco and pos
1 sibly whisky, as the Indian of old did,
| these Chippewas will build schools and
! homes, outfit their farms with mod
ern machinery and stock, and un
doubtedly made rapid advancement
; from conditions which have gained
j for them the name of the most primi
tive of the Chippewa nation.
So believes Chief Wa-na-bo-sho,
I Carlisle graduate, and better known
, as Joe Northrup, who is devoting his
time to helping the Indians become
better civilized and to encourage
legislation which would release to the
Chippewas millions of dollars said
to be rightly theirp, which Is being
held In reserve by the government
Indian bureau.
Living in what Chief Wa-na-bo-sho
describes as “wretched conditions,”
the Net Lake tribe of the Chippewas
gained fame In recent years by their
primitive habits. Many of the older
chiefs and squaws of the Chippewa
nation retired to the Net Lake reser
vation several yenrs ago and prac
tically became outcasts from their na
tion. They refused to recognize the
tribe’s general council and in the past,
according to Wa-na-bo-sho, they have
repeatedly turned down offers of as
sistance from their fellow tribesmen.
This situation was brought about,
Wa-na-bo-sho believes, because the In
dians were destitute. He believes the
Net Hake Chippewas will now join
their fellow tribesmen in the upward
trend to the modern mode of living.
Early in .lane contracts with the
Chippewas and the Northwestern Pa
per company, Cloquet, Minn., were
signed, whereby the lumbermen will
pay the Indians approximately $300,
000 for from 20.000.000 to 30.000,000
feet of saw timherland pulp wood In
the vicinity of Net lake.
“Texas Bill” and His Way of Courting
BOSTON.—Something new in the
line of courting has been intro
duced by William (“Texas Bill”) Cun
ningham, famous Dartmouth football
star, who proposed over long distance
telephone to a girl he had seen only
once in his life, and then for less than
one minute. The story dates back to
last November.
“Texas Bill” was playing center
for Dartmouth in the Dartmouth
Cornell football game at the Polo
grounds. Miss Doris Wilde of Attle
boro. Mass., was in the grandstand
accompanied by a Cornell student. She
noticed the bang-up game her future
husband played.
After the game, in the lobby of
the Pennsylvania Hotel, a mutual
friend introduced them. Their inter
. view lasted just 45 seconds. That
was all Miss Wilde and “Texas P.iU”
saw of each other until their wedding
After graduating and joining the
staff of the Dallas News, Mr. Cun
ningham began a correspondence
which at first reached the mark of
only a fortnightly letter The cor
respondence was gradually increased
until some days five letters were re
ceived by each. Many telegrams and
special deliveries came in between
So it was that one night Mr. Cun
ningham grew lonesome. He called
up on tlie long distance telephone. The
cull awoke her at 3:30 a. m. Mr. Cun
ningham talked to Miss Wilde for
more than a half hour. At the end
of that time he had achieved two
things—a tremendous phone bill and
Miss Wilde’s consent to marry him.
Mr. Cunningham shortly afterward
was assigned by his paper to cover
the Dempsey-Carpentier fight in Jer
sey City. He telegraphed to Miss
Wilde and the wedding invitations
were printed.
Luckily the lovers were able to
recognize each other at the Boston
Hot Summer Nights Start Something New

Silver came out of the darkness at the
Jackson Park lake front, held up the
occupants of a half dozen dimly
lighted automobiles parked on the
boulevard edge and disappeared to
ward the lake as silently and myster
iously as they came.
Many automobile parties have in
vaded this section of the beach,'near
the German building, of late. With
cars parked at intervals of 100 feet,
they have spent many hot night hours,
“cooling off,” they say. At 2 a. in.
three modern pirates, their faces
covered by handkerchiefs, their right
hands gripping revolt^rs, came "up
from the sea” and approached one of
the automobiles parked at the curbing.
“Stick them up,” commanded the
From one machine to another went
the pirate crew. None of Ihe autoists
offered resistance. They appeared re
lieved that the visitors were pirates
rather than inquisitive police.
The pirates were tall, slender, blond
and young. Two of them removed
the handkerchiefs from their faces to
get a better glimpse at the girls.
Perhaps the police never would have
heard of the affair had the pirates not
held up the car of Jack Wolf, head of
an automobile storage battery concern
at 837 E. Forty-seventh st. Wolf
lost $20 and his desire to cool off. He
reported the affair to the police. With
Wolf, according to the police were
Mrs. Hazel Van Peener, 5356 Maryland
avenue and Miss Eottie Harvey, who
rooms with her. Mrs. Van Peener,
who runs a candy shop said she was
robbed of $50.
Members of the Wolf party said
they saw the pirates visit at least six
other cars, so they knew that others
had been robbed. Vet none of these
reported to the police. The other man
in the Wolf party did not appear at
tlie police station.
The Lame Girl and the Faith Healer
DENVER.—Mary Kinnv, beautiful,
lame, wants to be healed, but the
“miracle woman,” Mrs. Aimee Semple
McPherson, cannot pray for her be
cause Mary is ambitious to dance.
Born lame, Mary, who is a cashier
in a downtown drug store, was left
an orphan three years ago and now
lives alone in a Denver hotel. Her
two sisters are busy in other cities,
winning fortunes on the stage. Mary
would give worlds to join them; she
is fond of music, and just crazy to
Since the first Denver case of a
cripple who claimed to have been
*?ured by the prayers of Mrs. Mc
TMOxvs.-u became known, Mary has
been one of the vast crowd that filled
the municipal auditorium.
“It’s awful to think,” she said. “You
see, it’s this way: Mrs. McPherson
says that the persons who come to her
to be cured by faith must tear up the
jazz music, must give themselves up j
to a life with Christ, must study the ■
Bible, must do anything but go on the
stage. But you see why I want to be
cured. I want to go on the slajfe.
But what if I were to be cured by |
the prayers of Mrs. McPlierson?
Wouldn’t my conscience harass me to
eternity because I had been cured by
a faith healer and had gone on the
In speaking of Mary Kinny’s case,
Mrs. McPherson said.
“After the Lord healed, He said: ‘Go
tlipu in peace and sin no more lest
a worse thing come upon thee.’ Mary,
as I understand it, lias not sinned, but
she wants to lie cured in order that
she might tread a patli that is beset
with temptation. It may lie that she
was horn lame because the Lord de
sired to hold her hack. Surely, I could
not consistently pray for her cure if
she wants to he made whole in order
