Would Be Grand If Every Nephew of
Uncle Sam Could Have One
Just Like Her.
The homo-body on her way to mnr
hot had been buried In her shopping
list until the voices of her neighbors
renohod her.
"What did you hoar from .Tack?"
"I had a nice letter yesterday from
him; so interesting, lie tohl about
some girl- perfect stranger—who sent
him a box of home-made stuff. There
were socks and wristlets and a hel
met and candy."
"Why, the idea of sending nil that
to a strange eliap."
"But you see," Jack's mother went
on to explain "by way of apology for
taking the liberty—it seems she had
got his name out of a list of boys in
camp down there—she explained that
ns Uncle Sam was her uncle, and
Jack's too, that made them first cous
ins, and so In* couldn't possibly be of
fended with her. Wasn't that cute?"
"I should say so."
"Then she told him if he opened the
candy when he was on 'open' or 'neu
tral seas he must divide with his other
cousins, and if there was any of the
candy left by the time he landed In
France he must give It to his second
cousins—the English and the French.
It was the cheeriest letter ! And so
Interesting! So much so that he sent
It to me to read. Cunning little minx,
using that Uncle Sam gag."
"Sure," remarked her companion,
"but that's the girl of it!"
Royal Wit Not Slow.
Rich in sly humor was the reply of
Henry IV of France, who one day
reached Amiens after a prolonged Jour

harangue him, and commenced with a
lengthy string of epithets:
"Very great sovereigns, very good,
very merciful, very magnanimous—■'
"Add also," interrupted the weary
monarch, "very tired."

Hanlon told Mr. McCrystal Emma Bolk knew when she was married to

Elopement Plans Ended by Stern Policewoman
C HICAGO.—A crap game and a policewoman ended what had been planned
as a happy elopement for "Y'ak" Williams and his erstwhile "future,"
Margaret Cordith. It all happened in a West side theater. "Yak," a veteran
newsboy at Madison and Halsted
streets, had talked tilings over with
Margaret, and the stage was set for
the elopement. "Yak" counted his
day's earnings—$2.50—but still uot
enough to get mnrried on.
An alley crap game profited him
to the tune of $.37.50. With the money
nicked away in a secret pocket, he
rushed to break the glad tidings to
Margaret agreed to pack up at
once, but said if they left before night
fall her mother would become suspicious. So they agreed to take the mid
night train for Milwaukee. In the meantime "Yak's" luck took another turn,
and this time the bones failed him to the extent of the entire forty. "Yak"
come back to Margaret crestfallen.
Margaret was determined not to let their future happiness be halted by
a mere few dollars, and from a girl friend she borrowed all—$3.60.
The happy couple decided to take in a "movie" before the train left Mar
garet was restless and "Yak" was nervous. Their actions, coupled with their
possession of the two overpacked suitcases, aroused the suspicions of a po
licewoman in the theater.
Despite protests, they were marched to the Desplaines street station.
Mrs. O'Brien, Margaret's mother, was sent for. With a daggerlike glance
at her "almost" son-in-law she rushed to lier daughter's side. She per
suaded Margaret to return home.
"Y'ak" is still selling papers on the corner, and is confident that he'll win
his bride yet.
Youth Merely Victim of Overvaulting Ambition
M ILWAUKEE.—Anton Tuczynski is employed ns an attendant at Muirdale.
He took a trip to Windlake and Hayes avenues. A eail was received by
tlie police to send tlie patrol wagon to that section.
"When we got there this fellow
told me that a man had tried to hold
up a girl, hut that he got away," said
Patrolman Zarek.
The patrol wagon was sent back
with a much-disgusted crew.
"About ten o'clock I carne across
the defendant after be had told a
small boy that he was Probation Offi
cer Kelley, and that he was in that
neighborhood to break up the gang
known as the 'Bloody Sixty-Four,' "
said Zarek.
asked Judge Tage, when the accused
HO -o 0
"What was the matter with you?'
was arraigned in his court
"Well, your honor, I have an application in to be appointed a probation
officer, and I thought that if I went down in that section and cleaned up a
good case it would help my future," said Tuczynski.
"Then yot^ thought that a little practice would make you perfect for the
position which you desired," said Judge Page.
"I think he is a little gone in the upper story," interposed Patrolman
By order of Judge Page, Doctor Rupp examined the defendant, and his
decision was as follows :
"The boy is sane, but he has a bug on being appointed probation officer,
and I advised him that unless he mended his ways he would not be an em
ployee of the county but a patient of Doctor Young."
He was lined $5.

3rd Division, Camp Greene, Chariotte, N. C.
io regular of our army is an independent, ear»-free lighting man,
will never complain in any circumstances. 1 should like to sav
h word in behalf o! this straight soldier, who goes ahead with his task
and does not whimper because the other follows get all the "goodies"
and attention from the fofks at home.
So much has been made of National army men and National Guards
men, whose home ties are, perhaps, stronger than those of the regulars,
that the man who enlisted under Uncle Sam's flag to fight as a "sure
enough regular is receiving less thought and less of the good things of
life. The regular will not ask for anything except that which is his due
from the constituted military authorities. He can growl, perhaps, as
frequently ns any civilian, but he growls only when lie knows he is not
getting what tlie law intends he shall have.
For mollycoddling he cares not a bit, but he is just as human as any
selective service man or National Guardsman in this whole broad lam!.
In these days, when solicitude is felt for the selected man and Guards
man, let some heart thought go out to the regular. He does not get as
many letters from home as the other men get. Frequently the regular
has no family ties except those of the great human family, but at that
he appreciates it when he knows he is being remembered.
No one ever asks about tlie fighting qualities of the regular, because
the question is unnecessary. He is licked only when he is dead. He
doesn't ask for kind thoughts or kind gifts, but he is grateful if he
receives them.
The American people should not forget the foremost fighting man in
the world, the United States regular, and they should try to convince him
in some way that they appreciate the fact that he is taking his life in his
hands lor their sake and the sake of democracy.
Democrats Are Willing to Go on Fighting
Until Thrones Disappear
By WILLIAM ENGLISH WALLING, American Alliance lor Labor and Democracy
In all the leading countries of the world the tories are uniting for an
immediate or German peace. They are not friends of the Prussian
junkers -not by any means—hut they realize that to defeat the Prussian
junkers and the semidemoeratic governments of the entente countries,
England, France and Italy, may have to be further democratized. This
democratizing would mean the end of the entente tories. Therefore the
plutocrats and aristocrats of these countries are now ready for a junker
peace. If the war is prolonged for another year or more their estates,
monopolies and privileges will be confiscated.
Lansdowne in England has secured the support of a large part of
the British lords and earls for his policy of surrender.
Uaillaux in France was involved with a large number of the leading
plutocrats and aristocrats of that country. It took over a year before the
French chamber of deputies dared to put this powerful personality on
In Italy Giolitti has the support of a large part of the plutocracy
and aristocracy, and has been working steadily for a German settlement
from the very beginning of the war.
In a late dispatch from England, Sir Algernon Methuen gives the
tory reason for supporting the Lansdowne peace movement.
Unless the war is settled forthwith, Sir Algernon says: "Thrones will
disappear and foundations of society be shaken."
Exactly . If the war is prolonged a year or so—the time required to
administer a thorough defeat to the junkers—thrones will disappear, aris
tocracies will be abolished and plutocracies will receive their death blow
Therefore, say the tories, let the war be ended forthwith.
Ilierefore, soy the worlds democracies, let the war continua.

Heavy Editorial.
Ah xander H. Stephens, vire presi
dent of the Southern Confederacy,
who after the Civil war was repeated
ly elected to congress from Georgia,
was an exceedingly thin man. One day
there fell under Ids obsevation a news
paper item saying that he weighed f*0
pounds, in reply to this he wrote a
letter to the editor of the offending
Journal demanding nil immediate re
traction. "I will not he slandered in
this- matter," he protested, "my
weight is 94 pounds." Tlie former vice
president was himself an editor, with
a habit of writing very long articles for
his paper in Georgia, and the contem
porary which had made the unwelcome
statement regarding his weight refused
to retract it for the reason, he said,
that "Mr. Stephens must have had one
of Ids editorials In bis pocket when
lie last tried the scales. This would
account for the difference of four
pounds between the two figures."
