HERE IS SLANG AT ITS BEST.
What the Vernacular Is Coming To
in Colorado.
Judge Benjamin B. Lindsey, who
has made a national reputation for
himself by his work at the Denver
juvenile court, tells in the American
Magazine the story of Eel Martin, a
typical bad boy, whom the judge has
since succeeded in reforming. The
following is one of the boy’s exploits:
One of the boy’s methods of beat
lng his way about the country was to
board a train and after it had started
to creep into an empty berth in a
sleeping car.
On one occasion Martin was awak
ened by the porter’s startled exclam
ation: “Good Lawd, the’s a kid in
heah!” Then, as the boy phrased it,
“I flew the coop while the coon guy
went to tell the conductor. I was
ditched at a town they call Reno, in
Nevada. Course I was dead broke.
I touched a guy for a half and bought
mo a cane and some chewing gum. I
walked into a bank and right up to
the guy in de monkey cage. I said
I wanted work, and he said he hadn’t
none I told him I’d clean up de back
yard and while he went to ask de
head guy about it rammed de gum on
de end of my cane, shoved it Trough
de cage and swiped a twenty that
Stuck to de gum. Then I took a
hike mighty sudden. I lay low and
went out on th* express that night"

The Key to Power.
Success in life is a delicate and dif
flcult thing to define. To many—right
ly or wrongly—it is synonymous with
the accumulation of wealth, the stand
ard of achievement and the end of all
ambition worthy of human endeavor.
But whatever may be our delineation
of this subtle and somewhat fickle
goddess, the possession of a substan
tial bank account Is, for most persons
—for all, in fact, who are not degen
erates—a most laudable object of am
bition. It has a psychological value
all apart from its conventional, com
mercial value. It is veritably the key
to power—not alone through what it
buys, but through what it dof-s-un
locking those secret sources of
atrength that transform the delinquent
into the alert, the vacillating into the
confident, kindling the embers o!
hope, and giving the race to the slow,
the battle to the weak.—Business

On the Jungle Line.
Did you here about the work of the
leopard as a spotter on the trolley
line?" asked the kangaroo of the hip

"No. What did he do?"

without checking It.”
"And what happened?’
"O, the giraffe got it in the neck,
of course.”
