D)(Q 0 Tales of Follow S'ÂwSeir "Pete Foley's Brand of Cigarettes It was while a few. choice spirits were foregathered, bemoaning the fate that had ©vertakeu them by the passage of the Volstead amendment and the attend ant deprivation of their customary Scotch, that the following story whs re lated, caused by the singing of nn old tSme hymn in a nearby Sunday-school, "From Greenland's Icy Mountains to India's Coral Strand." After the coterie ltad all expressed a yearning for the good old Sunday-school days. Peter B. Foley, G. X. railway of ficial. bor vivant and club man, unrav eled the following yarn: •'That 'India Strand' portion of the .hymn recalls to me an incident in my life that will last as long as it endures. Ton see in my younger days I was in the employ of a company that was en gaged in the ivory trade and as 1 was considered good at the barter and trade end of the game I was selected as the one to proceed to India to se cure control of a large output of the product of the elephant controlled by the Itajah of Bungtown. 1 had culti vated a suave manner and being natur ally polite I thought it would be rather «asy for me to land the goods. It was customary for a man who essayed to be a commercial globe-trotter to ne quire knowledge of the religious habits and customs of the country which he in tended visiting so as to exempt one from giving offense. The country to whieh I had been assigned had been controlled by high-caste Hindus, fol lowers of Mohammed and devotees of the Koran.

GREAT FALLS 4 SHOE HOSPITAL 15V2 Second Street North. | extracting it from its case and from this state of affairs arose the mutiny. "In due course of time I arrived at Calcutta and thence proceeded 250 miles northward to m.v destination. Ar riving there I was the recipient of a noisy demonstration and escoirted to the court of the rajah. All had gone well so far, but in approaching the throne was where I committed a blun der which came near ending my earthly career. The sun was shining brightly and as I advanced to the throne by body cast its shadow which was thrown on his royal highness. In an instant bedlam broke loose. Such shrieking, wailing and howling that prevailed is impossible to describe. I was seized by a number of be-turbaned men and hustled off to the bastile or stockade there to await the sentence of the court, for I lifld committed a crime punishable by death in having violated the person of the most high by allowing the shad ow of a dog of an infidel to cross his august body. "But the strangest part, of the af fair was to be the manner of mv being transported to another realm. The oc « asion was to be a holiday fete and for hundreds of miles around the natives were informed by a sort of drum sys tem, akin to our telephone or helio graph. On the appointed day when I wns to receive my wings I was led into a huge court on the throne of which sat the rajah, surrounded by thousands of his followers. Tn the center of the court stood a huge can non into which I was thrust feet first, the intent being to shoot me into space. But Providence watches over fhildren and—you know. Evidently the powder hail become damp or something happened to the interior of the cannon for the force of the explosion landed me within two feet of his highness. In a second there was the greatest, sa laaming and shouting of 'Allflh be Praised' and the cause of it all was that the moment I was hurled from the cannon the sun had been obscured by a cloud, therefore mv body did not, cast it's customary shadow." By this time the members had begun to come out. of the trance and one in quired of him what brand he had been smoking, whereupon he pulled out n small ivory box. a present from the rajah, he said, containing 250 cigarettes. These, his royal highness had told Fo ley. must be smoked yearly, one at a lime, thus insuring him 250 years of life. It was then that one of those prps ent remarked: "I didn't know what kind of hop. but I have come to the conclu sion that the spirit of Baron Munchau sen has come to life, or that you have him backed off the boards."
