Abe Martin Says:
Most o’ th’ fishin’s done by
folks that hain’t got nobuddy t’
cook ’em after they catch ’em.
We kin hardly wait till t’mor
row t’ see who killed somebuddy
t’day.
W 6 didn’ know Joe Lark had
a second-hand car till he told us
he wuz jest tinkerin’ around.
Some lawyers don’t teem t’
defend nobuddy but guilty peo
ple.
Ther’s few things we like t’
say better’n, “Well, he wouldn’t
take my advice.”
Why call ’em “progressives”
when they don’t never git no

which $6,000,000 had been invested in
second, third and fourth trusts on
Washington real estate, and in specu
lative building here. The court re
served for later decision the question,
of the personnel of the receivership.

WIFE’S LOVE OF DANCING
IS BLAMED IN DIVORCE
Husband, Fighting: Suit for Decree,
Says Craze Broke
Up Home.
Ray Howlson, 1306 Ninth street,
blames his wife’s love of dancing for
the breaking up of his home in an
answer filed to the suit of the wife,
Mrs, Amanda Howlson, for an abso
lute divorce.
He declares dancing was an obses
sion with his wife, who went out
every night, he says, often with other
men. She told him she would rather
dance than do anything else, he adds.
The wife left him and took away hi*
household effects while he was at
work, the husband states. He denies
her charges of misconduct and asks
the dismissal of her suit. Attorneys
Hawken & Havell appear for Howi
son.

In Berlin, the death is recorded of
a woman whose fiance was killed in
the Franco-Prussian War. For more
than 50 years it has been the odd
custom of this woman to give a re
ception on each anniversary of the
day which had been set for the wed
ding and to receive her guest in the
dress that was to have been, her
bridal gown.
