Four men were seated under the glare of many colored lights on the verandah of the Hawaiian Hotel. Each seemed to be enjoying himself. The air above them was pungent with the odor of four good Havanas. Outside, around the pavilion, there was a monster crowd of people of all nationalities and dressed in all manner of fashion. The Hawaiian band was filling the air with island melodies. There was a lull in the music. The four on the veranda seemed restless when Biggs, as he may be called, sud denly broke the silence. Biggs was a tipw arrival at the hotel. lie came from Australia and was known as a storv-teller. not the kind who spin yarns, but one of those genial souls who seem to see everything and remeincer everything. "Did I ever tell you of the circus clown that beat the British at poli tics?" "No! Well, here's the story. John Greely Jenkins, a Southerner, went out to Australia with an American circus. He was a clown and his particular piece of business was to operate a fake cam era on the farmers coming to the show, for the amusement of people in the re served seats. Jenkins was about as wild a circus man as a tent could rea sonably be expected to hold. When the circus arrived in South Australia he found a regular harvest of 'suckers' awaiting him. He played high Jinks with them under canvas for a week. Then he thought , the people were, so gullible he might dq well by staying in the country. He then deserted the cir cus, and going to the British and Colo nial Bible Depot, purchased about a hundred Bibles. With these he traveled right through the back country, visit ing the squatters. He told the squat ters' wives that the Bible had come into popularity as a literary work, and to be up to date everyone must read it. He sold these In some cases as high as five pounds (twenty-five dollars) and returned to Adelaide, the capital of the state, with quite a nice suni of money. "During his stay in the back blocks Jenks had been studying the politics of the country. He found that the lareer number of votes were in the hands of what were termed "church people." Then he started out to cap ture the church people. He stopped drinking and smoking and became a strong pillar of a local church. People pointed him out as a model man. He joined a number of debating societies, and in turn held the highest offices in each. Then Jenkins startled the com munity. He announced himself as a candidate for the State Parliament. Politicians called him crazy. An Eng lishman opposed him and in the saloons the Yankee-man was derided as a sec ond Guy Fawkes. But Jenkins went out for the place in earnest. He quick ly collared the church-going section of the community. Then he started after the labor vote. He visited all the labor ers' wives. If he caught a woman washing clothes he made a speech to her. declaring that the laws of a country- must be wrong when they would cause a fine specimen of womanhood to have to work over a washtub. He stopped children on the streets, gave them sweets and candies, and kissed an the small girls. It is needless to say that he thus got the labor votes. In a word, Jenkins advocated everything, yet advocated nothing. He was an art ist at politics. When the poll was announced it was found that he had been elected by a big majority. "But he had not been making money. His salary as a member of Parliament would only be equal to $1000 a year. So he made another move. He bought a lot of worthless land and declared that in a year it would be worth a pile of money. His friends declared that he had gone, stark mad. But shortly aft erwards Jenkins brought off another coup and became Minister of Railway You can imagine how quickly a rail way was put in to Mitcham where his land waii and a fine little station erect ed there. Of course a suburban train service was installed and Jenkins land sold well. In similar ways he has amassed a big sum of money. "But this happened many years ago. Jenkins never was beaten in an elec tion after that and a couple of years ago when the Commonwealth govern ment was formed, and the colonies be came States, Jenkins forged ahead again and became Premier of his State. "As Premiers of States are usually knighted by the King, the man who was once a circus clown new stands in a fair way of being Sir John Greely Jenkins of South Australia." A Honolulu man wished to know if Biggs had finished. "Yes." said B ggs. "Well." s?aid the Honoluluite, "could- ; n't a fellow work the same game here?" ' "Nit. At least several say so who have tried." Rainier beer. 53 75 for 2 1z . ad 50c . allowed for the empty bottles, leaving 1 the cost of the beer $3.25. or J1.62Vi per I doz.
