matters that the department stores
axe concerned in. He is supposed to be a cracker-jack sleuth. He is the detective who, some time ago, was found to be drawing double pay, one envelope from the big stores -and an other from the city. McGuires plea to the judge was "Send im up. He's guilty." judge Mahoney gave Doore a chance to explain hia act but the man had little to say. "I can see nothing that I can do but send you over," the judge then said. "The man's wife is here," Doore's lawyer broke in. "Let her talk." "Don't ring in the man's wife," snapped the judge. "I am human, but I don't want to be influenced by his wife in my decision." Then the lawyer said he would like to explain a little side matter in the case. He whispered to the judge. Mahoney's face brightened. "That is something else again." , Doore's lawyer summoned some one from the rear of the courtroom. A mere slip of a girl stepped forth. She was the wife in the case. Violet was her name and she looked the part. Frail, pretty and but 19 years of age. "This little woman is absolutely dependent upon her husband for sup port," Doore's lawyer said. "Her husband was only getting $15 a week from Rothschild & Co. for work as a drug clerk. They had a hard enough time getting along as it was. And now if the bread winner of the family is "sent over" where will this little girl be? In a few months there will be another mouth for Doore to feed. The stork is expected to visit their home. Is it better for the man to be in jail not supporting his fam ily, and his wife starving, or ig it bet ter for the man to be out working and trying to redeem himself?" Judge Mahoney didn't just exactly like the idea of the new little Doore coming into the world while his or her daddy was in jail, and coming , into a home where there was no food.s Doore is free on parole. When-the little Miss or Master arrives, Daddy, as well as Mamma, will be there to greet him or her. o o SCHOOL PRINCIPALS GIVE A SECRET JAKE LOEB TEA Some more regular Jake Loeb stuff was pulled off in Chicago yesterday.
