with the hoys. I was delegated to

"One Sunday I gathered about 45
youngsters who had never attended
Sunday school before, and as they did
not take kindly to the reading of the
Scriptures and the regular Sunday
school methods, I began telling them
tales from the Old Testament. They
listened with much interest to the
stories of Adam and Eve, and Moses
in the bullrushes, and so on, but when
I came to the stpry of Jonah and the
whale they listened with particular

Jonah was cast overboard from the

Head of “Physical Culture City" Ac

clared to be Obscene.
TRENTON, Feb. 14:—Berarr Mc

Court at Trenton yesterday on a
charge of violating the poslal laws
by sending literature declared to be

According to the figures there ate
more than 7,000 drinking places in
the state. Last year there wpre out
of that number 117 convictions fo.
violation of the excise laws, but only
29 licenses were revoked. Paterson
and Newark fall to report either a
conviction or a violation.
The population in Hudson, Essex
and Passaic counties is 1,035,666
and there is an average of one drink
ing place for avery 250 persons.
These three counties having two
thirds of all the saloons the other one
third supplies a population of 1,108.
47K, or an average of one for every
470 persons. With the 7,000 licens
ed places in New Jersey there is one
for every 300 mart, women and chil
dren in the whole state.
Mr. Backes has made application
to Assemblyman Klenert for a pub
lie hearing on the repealers before
they come up for passage. It is
thought, however, that the hearings
will be unnecessary.

When Her Anger Vanished.
She was telling a few visitors,
among whom was her best friend,
what a brute her husband had been;
how he’ had left her to cry her eyes
out when they lived together, had
borrowed money from her and never j
paid it back, and finally left her to get |
along the best she could alone; all
about her trials and tribulations get
ting along till she could scramble to
her feet again and reestablish her
self, and—
Just about that time there was a
ring at the bell. She sprang up,
rushed into the hall, hurried to the
outer door, opened it; there was the
sound of a little smothered cry, a
kiss, and her best friend, left in the j
room with the others, arose and said, |
"I think we'd better be going now
Something seems to tell me that that ;
is her husband."
