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
"Hark!" exclaimed Mrs. Kenney
yesterday afternoon, as she heard the
triumphant clucking of a white Or

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

"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

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."

U. S. mediation in labor trouble
proved successful yesterday in avert
ing the threatened strike of C, B. &
Q. Ry. employes.
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
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.

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. Notice it?
