When They Get Thirty Days
Instead of Five Years.
"Bgffalo Ike's" Sportive Dispensation
of Some $75,000, Gets Six Hobos
Into Trouble Barkeeper Finds
"Old Hickory's" Eyes Crossed.
Chicago. "Shoestring" Doyle and
his five companions heaved a thank

moonlight on the floor of tbt; county
jail. ' '
For "Shoestring'.' and his mates
only bad 30 days to tbink of Instead
of five years thanks to the Ineffable
hospitality of one "Buffalo Ike" and
his gporti.ve dispensation of some $75,
000. One morning recently "Shoestring"
end his five partners, "Slim" Roach,
"Blackle" Steps, "Spuds" Miller,
'Dude" Smith, and "Texas" Ducrost,
climbed wearily from the rods of a
box car In one of lower Chicago's nu-.
merous freight yards.
Start Out to "Do the Town."
It wasn't warm that day, and Shoe
string's shoes leaked as they plodded
townward. They headed for the Ho
bo college for a feed Then they got
to Madison and Ilalsted.
"You see," they chorused later to
Judge Landis, "we were standin'
there givin' the town th' high sign and
wishin' for a drink, w'en a feller
comes along an' bump Into us.
"'Hello. Jack,' he sez to me. 'Want
a drink?'
"Now, honestly, Judge, them's no
words to say to me on a cold day
, ain't I right?
"What did I say? 1 said. 'Sure
where is it?'
"Then what do you t'lnk dat feller
did? He pulled out two double hand
fuls of bHls outa his pockets and he
says: 'Wheel Looka me I I'm Buf
falo Ike of Leadville, Colorado! I'm,
a wild wolf, an' I'm a-howlln' I An'
den he gives a handful of dem bills
to me and my podners. They was $50
bills, too.
"Now dls feller was lit up some and
us folks flggered it was time to beat
it after we got th' jack, 'cause he
mighta wanted it back. D'ya get me,
"Well," Shoestring continued, "we
ducked aroun' th' block and when we
seen he wasn't comin we headed for
a dump dat sells booze. In we went
an' up to th' bar.
"We asked for booze and we got It.
It had an awful kick fer th' next
thing I knew th' cops was shakin' me
But to Interpolate:
"Shoestring" gave the bartender
one of the $50 bills. Shoestring's ap
pearance was far from prosperous
the bartender looked carefully at the
"Old Hickory's" Eyes Crossed.
And behold the face of Andrew
("Old Hickory") Jackson which
looked back at him wasn't natural.
Old Hickory" had cross eyes. The
bartender phoned Capt. Thomas I.
Porter of the secret service, who
speedily arrived.
Shoestring and his companions went
to jail the bills were counterfeit.
"We ain't counterfeiters, Judge,"
the "Shoestring" appealed. "We
didn't know the Jack was queer.
We're just the fall guys for 'Buffalo
Ike, dat's all. He give us dat Jack
an' now we've got to stand th' stretch
for it. It ain't fair, is it, Judge?"
"W-e-1-1," drawled the Judge, "I'll
be easy on you fellows. Thirty days
Out In the hallway the quintet
grinned at each other:
"Ain't that a right guy?" Jubilated
"Shoestring." "There he mighta giv
en us a fiver apiece and he hands out
just 30 days. Ain't he th best dog
gone Judge in th judiciary? I'll tell
th' world he is."
"Justice ain't blind, is it?" one was
heard to say.
Here's a Tank That Can
Walk, Float and Dive
Paris. An amphibious tank
was demonstrated to French
naval and military authorities
at Marseilles by its inventor,
Leon Foenquin. 'The machine
resembles the ordinary whippet
tank except that it is propelled
from the stern. After crossing
trenches and climbing walls the
tank entered water, cruised on
the surface for a while, then
dived and crawled ashore along
the bottom. Gen. Monro and
Admiral Beaussant witnessed
the performance.
Meanest of All Sneak Thieves Take
.Props From Detroit Man and
Dash Away.
Detroit,. Mich. Albert C Malone
was the victim of what Is believed
to be one of the meanest thefts perpe
trated In Detroit in several months,
when sneak thieves robbed him of bis
crutches while he stopped' to adjust
his tie at Seldon and Cass avenues.
Malone notified the police that after
alighting from a bus to go to his
home he stopped beside a church on
the corner, placing his crutches
against the side of the building.
Two men of about twenty years of
age were standing on the corner and
each grabbed one crutch and ran.
The crutches had been purchased dur
ing the day at a downtown store and
Malone was taking them home 'for the
first time.
Inside Organs on Wrong Side.
Rutland, Vt. Though all his in
ternal orgnns are "on the wrong side,"
and he has tuberculosis, William
Bowen of West Charleston, Vt., a pa
tient at the Vermont sanitarium in
Pittsford, is going to get well, say the
doctors, to whom the man is an ana
toinicnl curiosity. X-ray pictures taken
to ascertain the conditions of the lungs
revealed the fact that his heart is on
the right side of his chest, the stomach
is misplaced, the liver on the left In
stead of the right side, and the ap
pendix on the left.
Industry Quadruples in Three Years,
Due to Help Given Farmers by
State Railways.
Buenos Aires. The cotton industry
in northern Argentina has quadrupled
in importance in three years as a result
of aid given to the farmers by the
state railways.
In 1918-19 approximately 12,000
acres were planted, while the 1920-21
crop embraces an area of about 50,000
The crop yield is from 1,200 to 1,600
pounds per acre, according to statistics
published by the railroads, one-third of
which is fiber and the rest seed. A gin
and a cotton-seed mill have been con
structed to take care of the crop.
The problem of the Argentine cotton
farmer is lack of labor for picking the
crop. Attempts have been made to use
machinery for this, but these have been
reported as being only partially successful.
Invalid Surgeon Removes Bullet
From Head of Convict.
Propped Up In Invalid Chair Dr. Chap,
man Performs Successfully Rare
Operation In Surgery.
Ossinlng, N. Y. The rare opera
tion of removing a bullet from a man's
brain was successfully accomplished
in Sing Sing prison hospital. A re
markable feature was that Dr. Wil
liam L. Chapman of Brooklyn, who
performed the work, was propped In an
invalid chair.
The operation was an attempt to
cure Insanity In a prisoner.
The presence of two bullets in the
brain was disclosed by X-ray, the
one removed being imbedded almost
two inches, while the' other was lodged
behind the right ear. When the first
bullet had been extracted the other
was found to be lodged solidly In the
tissue. After a consultation It was
decided not to touch It. The Incision
then was closed, and the patient re
gained consciousness.
The full operation lasted one hour.
A piece of skull the size of a silver
dollar first was removed, and into the
aperture Dr. Chapman inserted his in
dex finger gently, being careful not
to rupture the brain tissue or draw
blood. Deeper and deeper, with pain
ful slowness, the surgeon probed until
his finger came in contact with the
bullet. Then the surgeon slowly
worked his finger around and under
the object, gradually forcing It through
the tissue until It touched the side
of the skull, and then half lifted, half
pushed it, along the wall until It
reached the opening, where it was
taken out with forceps.
