WIDOW. 100, JILTED BY SWAIN OF 80 Kansas City, March 15.—Mrs. Em- j ma McMahon, who last December cel- ’ ebrated her one hundredth birthday, had expected to be a bride today. She was to have become the wife of Sims Berry, a youth of 80, but the prospec tive bridegroom got cold feet last j night just as the knot was about to be tied. Berry had joined with friends and relatives in the jollity of the occas-1 ion. With the prospective bride he had . received congratulations and best wishes. Then the newspaper report-' ers arrived. With them they brought | photographers. Everybody was perthr- | bed and Berry balked. He did not want, to get into the newspapers. The re porters pleaded with him to be a good j fellow and not spoil things, but he be came angry, grabbed his coat and hat | and leA the house. They waited for him to return, but he never showed up again. ■“No man can trifle with my aftec- j tions.” said Mrs. McMahon. “I'll not • take him back now.” Letter from China. • ! The letter is dated December 31st. | “I notice you wrote, dating your let-‘ ter. November lllh. which was “Ar mistic Daj’.” Was there any celebra tion in your place? Over here there j was not much. It sure must be a hol iday in.- your place. All the buildings here were fairly decorated by flags of i the Allied natons. At 11 o’clock a gun was fired and all were requested to stop work tor j a minute. Then twenty-one other shots were fired—-just as if they were pul together. The anniversary of the Chin ese Empire tell on the same day. Eve- ( ry Chinese ship was artistically dec orated and fire crackers could be heard everywhere in China Town dis trict. Last Sunday we had a Bazaar here for Hongkong's poor. In the morning there were girls in all the streets, selling roses, holding every blessed body that passed by .giving some sweet words, asking everybody to help Hong kong’s poor. The place was crowded from 2 p. m. to midnight. You said that in your place it is be ginning to snow and the weather is I damp. I should say that over here it is j the same only to one disadvantage, there is no snow in Hongkong. There never was any snow here and never will be. What a pity isn’t it! I just i love snow. There is snow in China, but no snow in Hongkong. Over there in China all the joys and merriments are not short-lived. We have the Chin ese New Year’s Day on the 28th of January. “(■old Brick" Schemes P. T. Barnura, the great showman, once said. “The American people want to be fooled,” and. “a sucker is borj j every minute.” It is estimated that $8,000,000,000 were taken from people in tie United States the past year by clever swindlers. Well do We remember, quite a num ber of vears ago. a notice came to us from the express office at Glenville.; Pa., that a C. O. D. package was there for us. We walked the distance (seven j miles each way ) only to find that we j were not allowed to examine the; package (about the size and weight of a brick), and refused to accept it. as there was $5.00 asked for it. plus 30 cents for expressage.
