Not long 1 ago one of ofthe the boys In the

better not
J You see I knew that if he wanted
his job hed better keep away from
me He said that was all right because
Z had given glv n him his job My M answer was
that he htiousht ought to hold on to it anyway a nYWay
no matter if I did give it to him

Sorrowful Farewells

The attention attentfonpaid paid the Gro Gr ffs was wasIj was4fl Ij in
fact the most mo t touching fea ieaure ture of of the
occasion When When they stepped on n th the
train a number of their friends turned
abruptly away and left the scene
Thtn Thtncame came Machen
It was but a shadow of the man who
at one orb time tlm was an autocrat in the th
Postofilee Department and counted
among his Intimate friends Senators
Representatives and others high iriofn iii offi

The former superintendent superlnt ndent of free de e ¬
livery presented a distressing spectacle
Poise bravado contempt for his ene ne ¬ 1
mica was conspicuously absent
Machen Smiles to the theEnd End
I The The J only sign sl of f the the courage coura i that iha thatonc fonc once
made Machen defy defyattack attacks a rid d threaten n
dire consequences to all who openly op
posed him was a set smile upon his
chalkwhite face The Thesmile smile cost him
an effort and did not at all impress
those whO J1Q saw It as an n in ndex n dex of the
tranquillity tr nqulll1ty Madlien 11a lien endeavored to to ex
hibit
His lips twitched nervously as he le
passed before the crowd He seemed
relieved when he stepped aboard ab ard the th

Your blood Is always full of poison polsonthe the

to absorb and carry oft this very ery poison
And the kidneys which are the blood filters
are expected to cleanse the blood and send
It back through the system clean to gather
more poison which they In turn will cUm ¬
inate

NEW YORK Feb 8 84n An imperative
order has been issued by Justice Leven

directs that whatever is left l ett of the 160

from the National atlol1al Bank at the time
John JohnR R Platt began bega n his suit against
her to recover 685000 must mustbe be imme Im me ¬

Confidential Trustee
Mrs Hannah Elias placed the hemone money
in the hands of J Patrick atrlcl W Dugan who wh
has acted in a confidential con t1dcntiG1 capac capacity ity for
her er O Of the he original 160000 it Is esti es ti ¬
mated that 110000 remains the other
50000 50000 having been beeiexpended expended in procur ¬

After AfterpOlnting fter pointing out that Dugan is act ¬

goes goes on Qnt onto to say
His Hisprofessed professed unwHHngness to to turn
the th money money over to the receiver followed
by a flimsy excuse an and d his subsequent subsequent
disappearance is ppcaran e show trifling that should
not be countenanced It is imppsin s

Vague and Inconclus ive
The statements stat mntsin in her affidavit are

tirely consistent with getting into
prompt communication with him as oc ¬
casion arises ar se I am satisfied that with
the necessity necessl y developing she can obtain
the funds iund intrusted to him for safe
keeping
Justice Ixjventritt V ertrllt points out that in
the event ot her being successful successfulin in the he
action n c tlon brought 1Jrou ghtag against alns t her by Platt she fh
would not be b at a loss to reach Dugan
