TRIED TO ESCAPE BY AUTO. Engle Had Grand Chase In Captur ing Two Salina Boys. "My name's Johnson and I'm from Frisco. I've never been niuiiea uj any constable in a Jerkwater like this and ain't going to be now." Bucn were the words of Walter Johnson of Salina who with William Laicey were arrestted Sunday by Marshal Engle for being drunk, speeding an auto and resisting an officer. After lying in the- city; Ja all last sfch Johnson this morning had calmed down considerably and both' he and Lacey pleaded guilty before Justice Quinn to the charge of being drunk. The other Uvo charges were not brought against the two boys. They were fined $10 and costs. ' Lacey paid his and was released but John son was put In the county Jail to bluff Sheriff Young for a come-back on his meals. ' The Salina boys were speeding In the business district when Marshal Engle boarded the machine and or dered Lacey, the driver, to stop. In stead Lacey put on more speed, Jump ed from the car and left Engle and Johnson to atop the car. Johnson said , he couldn't and Henry said he didn't know a thing about the auto. However, Henry made a safe jump from the machine and started after Lacey, whom he caught after a brief chase. After placing Lacey in the city Jail he captured Johnsen who refused to go. But a rap on the head with Henry's club changed his mind and he went along peaceably. TO BE HANDSOME PLACE. Case's Dry Goo1s Store and Building Helng Entirely Remodeled.

A new feature of the directory is the numerical street Index. If you know the number of a person's house and the street he lives on, and want, to find his name, all you have to do is to look in the numerical street di rectory. The new directory also con tains an alphabetically arranged list of the business i firms and private citizens; miscellaneous directory; city, and county officers, churches, public and private schools, buildings, banks, secret and benevolent socle ties. ON GASOLINE ROW. Under the spreading chestnut tree a stubborn auto stands, and Smith, an angry man is he, with trouble on his hands. He cusses softly to him self, and crawls beneath the car, and wonders why it didn't bust before he got so far. The carbureter seems to be the cause of ail his woe; He tightens half a dozen bolts, but still It rtnoan't eo. And then he tries - SJ the steering gear but finds no trou ble there till wet with perspiration. than ho nnitn in sheer despair. He squau beside the road to give his brain a chance to cool, and pon ders on his training at the corres pondence school; and then he starts the Job once more, until by chance 'tis seen the cause of all his trouble is he's out of gasoline. " j J J A dozen out of town cars were In Abilene Sunday and several carl went through town over the Golden Belt route today. Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Parker of Kan sas City have gone to Minnesota and Wisconsin on a motor car trip. Mrs. Parker writes: "We had thought quite aeriously of going to Denver over the Golden Belt route but while the Kaw Valley Is a beautiful garden spot we have, not forgotten that oa beyond in western Kansas lies that Sahara desert, the only shelter from sun or rain would be a lime stone fence post or a gopher hole."

We found several autos stuck in the sand at different places. We girls' would get out and walk across the debris while the men of the other machines would stand on the opposite side and say 'that big Rambler will never get through.' But she did every time. We kept -to the Golden Belt route and had the good fortune to meet the president of the Lincoln highway of Colorado Springs. He told us by all means to avoid the Denver road from Llmon as the excessive 'rains had made it Impassible for autos. We came di rect to Colorado Springs, therefore. The road would be good in dry wea ther but as I said the washouts were troublesome. We arrived not even very tired. Miss King and I by copious use of cold cream and thick veils did not get sun burned but Miss Kehler insisted upon not being 'a tenderfoot' and consequently she is "peeling' now. We meet many Kansans who came here as we did and In fact the number of autos from Texas, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, and even farther east would P".i2'""lf fvsv? cs. m , ,,. rsgM , . . . .vui uuu cau i prow it I .i. .
