While passing a small millinery
shop, old chap, I overheard an in
dignant customer expostulating with
the proprietress for unreasonable de
lays in completing her hat. The door,
was open, so I could not help over-,
hearing these wrathy. words :-
"Say, are you building me a lid of
a skyscraper? Last time I soared
into this Kelly "bazaar -you gave me
a double-barreled affidavit that my
bean cover would be rigged in full
sail by the time the lunch whistle
blew. And now you've got the crust
to say it ain't even got its coat of
varnish. Well, this is the last time
I ever order a beau-grabber at this
joint!"
My word!

THAT GRIFFITHS & SON CO. CASE'
"The charges brought against offi
cers of the oJhn Griffiths & Son Co.
for not using a safety device required
by law involve felony and if the muni
cipal courts refuse to start the case,
the evidence, will be presented, to the
February grand jury by the 'state's,
attorney's office,", said Asst. State's,
Att'y Mike Sullivan today. 1
.. Sullivan met John P. Reed, attor
ney for the state factory inspection
department, yesterday. Another con
ference will be held next week. Judge
Newcomer refused to take the case
because the prison term called for in
the law is longer than this court can
impose. J. Kent Green, attorney for
the chief justice of municipal courts,
gave an apinion that the case should
go before the grand jury instead of
municipal courts.
