HERE'S A CHANCE TO SELL IT New York, Aug. 27. Inventors, at tention! If you have anything in your laboratories in the way of a muffler for the crow of a rooster or the cackle of a hen take the device to Mrs. J. J. Kenney, widow of County Judge Kenney of 141 Franklin ave nue, New Brighton, S. I. She will spend many dollars to help you get your invention patented and mar keted right away. For Mrs. Kenney says she hasn't been able,, to sleep a wink after 4 o'clock in the morning for the last eighteen months because of the noisds from her neighbor's hen roosts. "Hark!" exclaimed Mrs. Kenney yesterday afternoon, as she heard the triumphant clucking of a white Or pington, who had just laid a strictly fresh egg. The cackle was followed by a chorus of the hen's sisters who had eniulated her example. "How can any one expect to take a quiet, little nap with such a squal ling going on?" asked Mrs. Kenney. "And it's even worse in the morning, with the roosters. My house has hen neries on three sides, and from the noise the roosters and hens make from 4 o'clock on you'd think you were living near a boiler factory. "First, an old rooster belonging to H. C. Hillegas starts the concert a few minutes after 4 o'clock. He's got a song that runs, 'Nothing to do but to crow until tomorrow.' - "By 5 o'clock there's one of those Wagnerian operas along the line. "Naturally, in the afternoon, I try to get a nap on the soft, but every time I do that a hen lays an egg or signals that she's going to lay one." o o C, B. & Q.

Following a conference between employes and officials presided over by U. S. Mediator W. L. Chambers both sides signed an agreement to submit the differences to board of arbitration. This is considered more a victory for the men than the officials, as in a letter sent Chambers Monday Vice President H. B. Byram of the com pany positively refused to submit fif teen of the questions to arbitration. The employes have thirty-eight grievances. After Chambers had talked for awhile the company agreed to arbitrate them all. 7,000 men would be affected by a strike. o o There are features in the pictures of both Thaw and Diggs that make one think of a wolf and at the same time of an ape.
