means luxury it means the unusal,
and to some of them the possession
of a car, even though, its owner may
be a libertine that- -women who
know him will not associate with,
clothes him with the glamor of more
than usual wealth.
A young boy whose father owns a
car told me of a girl who attracted
him. She was the cashier in a nickel
show, and he became quite infatuated
with her, but she snubbed him every
time he tried to talk to her, and then,
one night he was driving his father's
car, and he stopped before the nickel
show, got out and approached the
She had seen the car. Her face
was wreathed in smiles and the bar
riers were down. Greedily she ac
cepted his invitation to take her
home when the show closed, after 11
o'clock at night, and she went with
him in that car for a drive of several
miles, knowing nothing of him, and
worse, knowing- nothing of the fate
that might be in store fqr her.
In this case, however, the boy was
an honorable little lad, and the girl's
foolishness only disgusted him, and
so ended what might have been a ro
mance. Foolish little moth girls, who fly so
close to the flame who take such a
desperate chance for the sake of a
sensation that is unusual, and who
always pay a price sometimes of a
crippled body when the girl jumps;
sometimes of being ravished and left
alone out in the solitude; sometimes
of going right down into the arms of
an ignoble death!

SALOONS GET A JOLT "
Saloons were struck a body blow
yesterday when Chief Gleason issued
an order directing that every saloon
confine its sale of intoxicants to
rooms directly connected with it on
the first floor.
This order effects all saloonkeepers
who have been selling drinks up
stairs, chop suey places, restaurants,
pool rooms, bowling alleys, etc.
The drys are jubilant. They regard
it as their greatest victory since the
Harkin ordinance limited the num
ber of saloon licenses to 7,152.
