Harold . 5haw
New York. "There's burglars get
into the house, papa," shouted four-year-old
Harold .Shaw, sou of a po
liceman. Shaw, Sr., was just climb
ing into his uniform. So he made a
rush for the door, leaving his.rev'olver
on the table. The child picked it up
and followed. The men were getting
away via the fire escape when Shaw
spied them. He grabbed his revolver
from little Harold and nabbed one of
the men.

his son. "Why didn't you git the oth

my-vchurch because e feels he will
not be comfortable," says Rev. J. W.
Kramer, of Central Baptist Church,

And we have seen Rev. Billy Sunday
herding his uncomfortable, scared
flocks with jthe aid of sulphuric

Hot pitch and a threshing-flail the in
strumentalities of the other. The
sweet little white pills of the homeo
path; the calomel and bleeding of the
old time old school'. How alike, in
some respects, the policies of cures
for souls and for bodies! v

Lilian Russell is honeymooning in
the West Indies. Lily shouldn't use
all of the Indies, this time. There
may be many more happy weddings
in store for Lily, and there are' not
too many new places left for Lily to
moon in.
