How Little Joe of Chicago Lost His Fine Graft CHICAGO Little Joe, although scarcely six years of age, and still unable to talk without a lisp, was for many weeks a familiar figure in the vicinity ol Madison and Dearborn streets, where he sold papers. Not bigger than a minute, with tattered clothes, dirty in distress asked him what was the Icause of his trouble. Little Joe, with sobs choking his voice, told her of his misfortune. The wr-tan opened her purse and deposited in his hand a half dollar, which caused him to dry his tears and smile happily. Finally a happy thought came to him, and hastening to the other side of the street he again burst into tears. It was not many minutes before a man stopped and began questioning him. Little Joe repeated the same tory, with the result that the man presented him with a quarter. Each afternoon thereafter he was to be found on one corner of the down town district and then on another, working his little fake on the sympathetic and unsuspecting public. But little Joe one day made a grave mistake, which brought to an end his "get-rich-quick" dodge. He told his story to a woman who gave him a dime. Drying his tears he hastened to another cor ner and began to cry. The same woman happened by and again inquired why he was crying. Little Joe, having forgotten her face, told her his well learned story. The boy was taken to the juvenile court by the woman, who explained to the judge the sort of business in which the lad was engaged. The Judge reprimanded the bog and on his promise to try no more get-rlch-quick schemes little Joe was sent home. Prisoners in Tombs Found Eating Their Shirts M EW YORK. When a man sits about 11 or making a fairly form'-lable effort keeper can tell that there is something wny the laundry at the Tombs is be ing done up on the inside of the in stitution and why some formerly con tented prisoners have become less so. After a half dozen keepers had re ported seeing perfectly sensible ap pearing prisoners eating a half por tion of shirt front or a snack of a plaid cuff. Warden John J. Hanley de cided that something more interest ing that starch must have been used fa the washing of the wearing apparel. As a result he kept watch on laundry brought by relatives of those who had taken to devouring their laundry, and discovered that a solution of heroin was being slipped in to the prisoners by means of the clean wash brought to them. The drug was used In the manner of starch in washing and ironing the shirts and collars. As is customary In cases of the kind, the "underground tfelegraph" at the Tombs had been busy since the first of the prisoners discovered this means of obtaining drugs, and as a result the practice had extended along whole tiers and no end of washed clothing had been arriving. This is the newest development in the effort made by friends of prison ers to satisfy a craving for various drugs. The last method discovered before this innovation was made following a series of calls by a man with a glass eye. This man called every day for a week and was duly searched. He went to see a prisoner and It was noted that every day after he had left a half dozen prisoners on the tier which his friend graced were in splendid spirits. One day the guards asked him to remove tho artificial eye. He had heroin enough for half a dozen men in it. Auto Poker Newest Fad of Minneapolis Sports MINNEAPOLIS. Exit ennui of the sporting gentry. Those who have grown a trifle blase yanking the lever of the slot machine or clinking the dice on the cigar store counter, or shooting the Ivory marbles over the green baize a machine on which he "lays" his lucre. As the machines pass, the license numbers are noted. The results are judged according to the ratings of "poker," a parlor game invented by Mr. Hoyle for tired business men. The player wuo "draws" license numbers forming two pair, three of a kind, a straight, full house or fours of a kind, can get just the same thrills as if he had them dealt to him from a deck. He is si red the fatigue of having toriffle the cards and deal. As an automobilist drove his machine past Twelfth street and Nicollet avenue he noted a group of young men on the corner. As he neared them they appeared excited, scanned his license tag closely and then paid sums of money to one in their midst. It wasn't until he reached his garage that the automobilist caught the significance of the excitement. He surmised they had been playing "auto poker" and one of them had drawn a prize hand bis number was 77766, a "full house." "There'll be a riot if 1111 passes that corner," he declared. Boys of Oakland Bar Swearing From Playground OAKLAND. "Swearing doesn't go here. Any boy caught cussing will be fired." This is the first rule promulgated by the "Little Citizens' com mittee" of the Bella Vista playground in Oakland. And it goes. Some weeks ago Miss reari nanus, piay director of the grounds, decided to put the management of the children In the hands of a committee of boys. She chose ten youngsters from different neighborhoods near the playground, formed them into a "Little Citizens' committee" and asked them to draw up mles and regulations. The boys were allowed to make the rules as they saw fit. The regula tions were formally adopted by the committee and then ratified, in their original form, by the board cf playground directors. mittee are as follows: "No cigarettes. They're no good. Any boy found smoking will be shown the gate. "You've got to keep paper and trash off the grounds. If you eat here, do it decent and take the refuse away with you. If you don't, look out for trouble. "Small children must be given a chance all the time. If any boy takei anything away from a little kid, he'll get his. "Say 'Thanks.' It don't hurt you, and being polite ain't a crime." The penalty for violation of the rules ranges from a fine of one cent U expulsion from the playgrounds for a montX hands and begrimed face, he was an object to excite pity and sympathy In the hardest heart. One day little Joe got into a quar rel with one of his larger and stronger companions, who knocked him dow., grabbed all his money and ran away. The little fellow sat on the sidewalk and cried as if his heart was break ing. A nicely dressed woman hap pened by and seeing the little fellow his cell at the Tombs eating a shirt to gargle a standing collar even a frightfully silly going on. That is table, are appeasing their gambling impulses by playing "auto poker." The new game is played on a street corner, and. In addition tc the oppor tunity it gives a participant to garner a "pot," it enables him to breathe the fresh air and get close to nature. A party of "young bloods' though there isn't necessarily any age limit to the pastime gathers together and, as automobiles heave into the offlng, each wooer of chance picks out Other rules of the com- THE FICKLE BEAU. , In the dark. In the dew, J. All my heart cries out to you ' As I cast It at your feet, ' Sweet Indeed, bat not too sweet Wondering will you hear it beat "Whom first wo love we seldom wed." So sings a poet who knows Eoniething of love "1 and the ways of men. Almost every girl who has had many beaux knows by experi ence that not one out of half a doz en young men who were eager to make love to her was to be de pended on. If she did pick out one she thought was sincerely in earn est, inviting him to call on her, she found to her cha grin that he was of the disappoint ing kind that he never came when he said he would. These girls who have been disap pointed by the men who have led them to believe that when they have made an appointment it was sure to be kept, have not the idlest conception of what the average girls really think of them for their lack of considera tion. Did this particular fact ever oc cur to us that over half of the young women who have found their beau ideals as they really supposed, will make all sorts of excuses for their having broken their engagements re peatedly? Scarcely ever will they come out openly and lay the blame for their hours of waiting alone In the parlor until their going upstairs in dejection to just where It belongs. Other young women and girls might consider the mittened "one" not capable of at tracting a beau ideal when one paid court for awhile. It takes a young woman's stancheat courage to face her girl friends as well as gentlemen callers and admit that the beau who had won her fancy from all others had suddenly turned a cold .shoulder to her for some fairer, perhaps young er or more attractive maiden, whose charms he valued more than her'a. When that first little cloud of mis trust crosses the horizon of tho young woman who is entertaining a bright, pleasing beau, that he is adroitly try ing to change his evenings of visit ing, making them two or three weeks apart, before she becomes more at tached to him, she should try to as certain if he has other engagements. It isn't fair to her if he does her the Injustice of concealing the fact that he is a Beau Brummel, roving from bud to flower, as his fickle fancy leads. A young woman is usually afraid to make an enemy of a one-time beau, if Bhe discourages his calling on her after his disappointments evenings for tho reason that he knows too many of her little confidential dislikes of some of her girl friends who might welcome him to their homes, finding an opportunity to get even. Really, to one can advise the steps which tho girl will take toward the beau who Is not to be depended on. She must judge for herself as to her pitiful waste of time, let alone affec tionate women whether it will be a case of her being left beauless when one is most needed. Half the women have been led astray by wrong advice as to Cupid. They should have a heart-to-heart talk together, as to mat ing engagements, keeping or breaking them as their own sweet will prompt ed them. FINDING FAULT WITH HIM. Wher the apple reddens Never pry Lest we lose our Edens, Eve and I. If you have a husband who is trying hard the best way he can to get along, don't be a millstone around his neck to hamper him In bis bitter fight with the harsh world. One word of encour agement from the woman he loves will put heart and strength in him to make renewed efforts; her sneer will make him bo despondent that the light est blow struck at him by an unfeeling stranger will force him down and out. It is every man's right to have a happy home if he provides one for his wife and assumes the responsibil ity of its upkeep. If his nerves and brain have been on the rack all day by business carea and worries, he should find peace, comfort, love, con sideration and cheerfulness within the four walls of his home. Wives may not think that such hus bands need coddling, and loving, but they do. What encouragement has a hasband who has worked hard all day if he is met by a fretful wife who Is ever ready to recite her woes to him, but never asks of him "Did you have a busy day, dear, and are you tired? If you do not feel like going out we will postpone going to tho movies or concert of lecture until some other time." How grateful the average husband would bo for such kindly solicitude, which tactly proved to him beyond "" 1 the power of mere words how deal he was to her. Even tf a husband does err In hit judgment now and then, he should not be made to feel that he had committed an unpardonable folly. Wise is the wife who throws her arms about his neck, assuring him that she is sure he has done everything for the best, and that success will come their way when he is least expecting it that her confidence in him is unshakable. Such a husband will have renewed strength to try again, aye, and keep on trying until he really does win out. Many a man has a dread of telling his wife of his business affairs when they go wrong, fearful of her upbraid ings, which would be but adding fuel to the fire of his discouragement. Don't find fault with a good, deserv ing husband. Worthy ones are hard to get, being few and far between. It is in almost every instance the man who has a happy home life who succeeds and the man who is torment ed at home who meets with ignomini ous failure. Love and appreciation are props of steel to keep a man's courage from sinking. I wish every petulant wifo who is not doing her share in lightening her husband's burdens would ponder over these words and make the resolve that she will experiment on being more kind and tolerant with her husband, to spur him on to more successful achievements. Finding fault with him will insure his anger, discontent with his wife and homo life. His wife's love and confidence will help him climb to success. Wives, think It over. FORGIVING HELPMEETS. Groat, or good, or kind, or fair, 1 will ne'er tho more despair; If she loves me. this believe; I will die 'ero she shall grieve; If sho slight me, when I woo, I can scorn, and let her go; P Vnr, if she he not for me, What care I for whom she be? When I hear of a woman blushing and cringing before tho scowling face of an Irate husband who has just de livered a lecture to her upon economy, home staying, breaking off with clubs, and tho Hue, I wonder that sho does not rush headlong into another room vntil the dove of peace helps them nake up. Why does not a wife show a little more spirit and gumption in taking her own part when she is forced to listen to such sallies heaped upon her unexpectedly instead of meekly wiping a tear from her eyes and assuring her lord and master that she will not take part In this and that very si a again? When alone, a grieved wife's pride asserts Itself. She knew that she had been a home body too much of one; delving Into the housekeeping, over working In the monotonous duties, un til night gave her tired hands relief, vXt'ki she crept into her room at dusk. lire had commenced to notico that she could be of some account to humanity, when her active sistors called her upon the phone, and urged her to give them a helping hand in several places where there were vacancies which badly needed to be filled. Until she had mar ried, aer clear, pleasing voice had been hoard In concerts and musical gath erings. Why not take a part that was vacant and help the village choir out? Sho was importuned and soon was at her post there, regularly, de spite the stormy upbraldlngs of her other half. She did not patronize the milliner or dressmaker very often. Instead, sho made up her dainty eve ning apparol herself, and contributed the money she saved to worthy clubs and charities. She could have over looked all of his Insinuations of her love of Idle gadding had he not made light of her woman companions at these meetings. "They simply leave all home work and go here and thero afternoons to show off their peacock like finery of attire; to ride past those who footed it, In automobiles which caused envy. In fact, they seemed to have one desire and that was to push to the front wherever they congregated, and thus be the first on the list of desired invita tions." At that she summoned courage to flash defiance at this misunderstand ing which he had shown. She ar gued every point which made these women's lives bright and their pur pose helpful, and life-saving in many Instances. And then she gained the day, spoiling her victory, as no doubt some would say, by going up and holding out her hands to him and ex claiming in wheedling tones: "John, I am right In my doings, and so I ccn afford to forgive you." What husband is there who would not have thought her the dearest of wives, hum ble herself as she did. A soft answer is said to turn a"'ay wrath. Many a woman has reclaimed her loved ones and taken the better part changed his pinions to good, and he hardly knew the reason why. Four Rabbits In Snake. While fishing along the Susquehanna river at West Milton, Pa., James Hafer killed a big rattlesnake. It had four lumps protruding from its stomach. Curious to find out what it had inside, he cut it open. He says he found four fully devel oped young rabbits. The snake was asleep at the time, and was apparent ly digesting the meal. The snake and rabbits were on exhibition here and attracted much attention. Picking Up Gossip. "My wife thinks these are strenuous times." "What's the trouble?" "She can't be in two places at once.
