After Business Hours between 6 and 8:30 Satur day evenings, we are open for the transaction of bank ing business, for which you have not had time in regular banking hours. Jfletrfjer icings anti thrust Company Will Help You Save Safely. REAL ESTATE GOSSIP By REALTOR "AL" EVANS Ken Badger now has the title of “Doughnut” Badger. His honor put up a very neat talk to the realtors and their guests Wednes day night. The “Mayor of Irvington” has a spe cial kind of opera, so it seems. With all of Temp s propaganda about me not attending the smoker, I was there—and with bells on. Say! How would you realtors like to board with Ken Badger? He sure Is some great little provider. We were informed Wednesday that Bowman Elder acted as Godfather on his arrival in New York from overseas. A lot of the young men sure did envy John R. Welch’s complexion Wednesday night. The entertainer seemed to enjoy the predicament, also. Outside of Temp, the entertainment committee has about the llvest men in the board. Wouldn’t It be swell if we could have as large a crowd at the Wednesday luncheons as we have at the smokers? That joke about the doughnuts didn't sink In until the crowd began to sink their teeth Into the sinkers. These old men sure do crave young ideas. F'rinstance, Will Elder and John R. Welch smoking “Fat Emmas.” Nothing meant by referring to you as old men. If your house is cold in the evening when you reach home from the* office, examine the registers before you open up the furnace. Mebbe your wife turned them off while cleaning. Before raising rents again every land lord should pause to consider that the householder will soon be faced with the necessity of purchasing furs for his wife for summer wear, and that furs are Tery expensive. Even a lot of the bakeries around town never saw as many doughnuts In one pile as the realtors did Wednesday. I claim that with the future of the board in mind we should vote the en tertainment committee a lifelong Job. What does it profit a man if he doeth a large and juicy month's business and payeth It all out for hired help and a silk shirt? Well, what about the 1921 convention, are you realtors going after it? That’s the one way to let the Indianapolis peo ple know just how big an organization the realtors have. It is suggested that a splendid source of revenue for federal purposes has been overlooked. A large excess profit tax on imaginary real estate deals, which never get past the talking stage, ought to yield several billions. It was announced at the smoker that tach man was entitled to six doughnuts. However, some of the attendants didn't get their 6hare, as there was about five dozen In the car I went home in. A mother of four children had tried repeatedly to rent a house, but because of the children had always been re fused. One afternoon, when approaching a vacant house, she came upon a ceme tery a little distance from the house In question, whereupon she told the four youngsters to go there and play and await her return. During the conversa tion with the landlord he asked her If the had any children. She answered, “yes, four, but they’re in the cemetery no>w.“ That was satisfactory to the land lord and she immediately paid the first month’s rent. THE ISES OF READ ESTATE.

LAST NIGHTS DREAMS —WHAT THEY MEAN— V J Did you dream of mines? To dream that you are in a mine and moving about freely in its passages and chambers is an omen of prosperity, ac cording to the oracles: but if you should dream you are lost in a mine it Is a warning to look well to your buslnes If you are engaged in trade, as there !s danger of loss to you if you don't watch carefully. To dream o f owning a mine denotes that you will encounter trouble and vexations where you have expected piers ure. To dream you are working In a mine signifies some enemy Is attempting to injure your prospects of success, though the chances are that he will not suc ceed. Any dream of a mine in operation is set down as a warning that the dreamer should beware of enemies and should avoid all lax methods in connection with bis business. If he is an employe such a dream sig nifies that he should be especially care ful and faithful in the discharge of his dories If he desires to avoid unpleas antness and possible discharge and to a success in life.—Copyright, 1920^ WILL PLEAD FOR NEAR EAST FUND City to Hear Flying Squadron Speakers Wednesday. The fate to which hundreds of thou sands of children in eastern Europe will bo left if America falls to give the neces sary aid through the Near East Relief fund will be told by speakers of the flying squadron, which comes to Indi anapolis next Wednesday. Wednesday evening a mass meeting will be held at Caleb Mills hall, at which Paxton Ilibben, Indianapolis man who recently returned from Armenia, will speak. Members of the squadron will make addresses in various parts of the city during the day. Secretary Mead A. Kelsey of the In diana committee for near east relief, who has returned from a conference of the national committee at Des Moines, la., s’aid the unanimous decision was that the relief work must continue. Edgar H. Evans, county chairman, told members of the committee at a meeting yesterday afternoon that the type of the speakers of the flying squad ron should assure large audiences. Man Denied Parole for Robbing Friend A petition of William Pitts, a convict in the state prison, for commutation of his twenty to thirty-year sentence, was refused by the state pardons board, ac cording to a letter from the board re ceived by Gov. Goodrich today. Pitts was released from prison, where he was serving a burglary sentence, through the efforts of Dr. .T. 11. Walker, then assistant superintendent of the prison. Within three days he returned and robbed Dr. Walker's home of $175 and was given another sentence of from twenty to thirty years. “Dr. Walker had given Pitts an outfit of clothing and had interceded in bis behalf,” the board wrote. Need More Doctors for R. O. T. C. Exams Physical examinations of high school members of the R. O. T. C. are being delayed on account of difficulty in ob taining services of physicians, according to Capt. Newton Hardin, head of the military training department of the city schools. So far only fifty students have been examined of the 2,700 enrolled In the service. Preparations are being made to select 200 high school students for training at the R. O. T. C. camp at Battle Creek. Mich., which will start about June 20 and continue six weeks. Among the fifty students examined it has been found most of them are under weight as prescribed in the military standards, which is attributed by Capt. Hardin to insufficient training and im proper diet.

Now, when Puss Junior came to the foot of the great high hill, he looked all around for the little Red Ant which the Frog King had declared would tell him which road to take to the Castle of my Lord of Carabas. And pretty soon he found her, but It took him some time, for she was very small and her house was nothing more than a little mound of earth with a round hole In the middle for a door. “You had better follow the river," she Puss Enjoyed a Peaceful Sleep. said, pointing to a silver stream that wound in and out among the trees, “for this water flows directly In the great moat that surrounds the castle of my Lord of Carabas.” “Thank you,” cried little Puss Junior, delighted at last to be shown the way to his father. “Thank you many times,” and away he went as fast as his legs could take him, and, by and by, after he had gone many a mile by the river’s WHEN A GIRL MARRIES A New Serial of Young Married Life CHAPTER VI. I have failed Jim! This sentence keeps ringing over and over In my head: "I have failed, Jim.” There is no excuse for me. Four days ago I married the man I love better than any other being on earth, and tonight—tonight, by behaving like an awkward school girl with stupid prejudices and ungracious manners—l have shamed him before his friends. Can I find any excuse for myself? When we came through the terraced courtyard of Towers-by-the-Sea to the great oval room crowded with tier upon tier and ring upon ring of laughing, shouting human beings, I felt as if all the three-ringed circuses in the world had been congregated In one spot and were competing against each other to make more noise than any human be ing ever before had heard. It fairly deafened me and made me dizzy. “Have you never been here?” Jim seemed amused by my shrinking and the way I clung to his arm. I felt as if I were accused of some horrid crime and misdemeanor—prim and unpopular, undesirable. “Well, you see,” I hesitated, “I’ve only lived In New York three years, and the Haldane's magazine crowd doesn’t ex actly fit in with these—lnterior decora tors.” Jim gave my arm a quick squeeze and laughed: “They are ‘interior decorators.’ Their materials are champagne and guinea hen and strawberries out of senson. You have a way of sizing people up, little Princess.” Just at first we couldn’t find Betty Bryce’s table. My heart beat fast—per haps we would not be able to locate her In that great hurly-burly! But Jim -turned to a waiter who led us to our, DOG HILL PARAGRAFS A terrapin with some initials cut on its back was seen near the blacksmith shop this morning.

Runaway Boy Found Sleeping in Hallway Irvin Mumford. 13, a runaway boy, was found sleeping peacefully in the hallway of the Wlnuner buildlug at New York and Illinois streets at 2 o’clock this morning by Fatrolman Slate.

A little bird was scared to death And Pussy almost lost her breath." Os course. Puss stopped at once to watch, and wasn’t he surprised to find that the cat was the one who had gone to London to see the Queen. And when she saw Puss she said : "Puss Junior, where have you been all this time ? And how did you ever cotne to travel in New Mother Goose Land?” “I’ll tell you. Miss Pussy," replied our little traveler, and he sat down and re lated how he had left hls famous father because he wished to see more of the world aid how he wss now returning to him, for he hnd been sent for, but for what he did not know.' "It may be that they wish me to go to the war,” he said, with a grin, “for a man told me the Marquis of Carabas was raising a regi ment, and perhaps he would like a cat to beat the little drum." “Maybe that Is so,” said the Pussy Cat, and then the little bird who was still up In the treetop said : “That Is the reason, lam sure, for my cousin, who lives near the castle, told me only yesterday that my Lord of Carabas was drilling his men every day on the broad plain before the castle walls.” “Hurrah!” cried Puss. “I may yet be a soldier and go to war,” and he Jumped up and was off, following the silver stream that led to the castle of my Lord of Carabas But night fell before he arrived at his father's place, and so he was forced to climb a free and curl up for the night.

That waiter seemed either very much impressed or very much amused because we were friends of Mrs. Bryce. •'Tommy and Jack couldn’t wait—they had a party on over at Marcel’s, and, of course, they wanted me to come—but I would desert you two precious chil dren.” ‘‘Ob, why didn’t you go?” I began eagerly—but Jim’s horrified face stopped me. The deprecating “poached egg” expres sion on Miss Moss' face changed to a puzzled one, but Mrs. Bryce remained charming. “Dear child, it's sweet of you not to want me to miss any jolly times, but I'm twice as fond of Jimmie as of Tommy and Jack together, and besides, dear, I wanted to know you. There's no escap ing me, once I decide I’m going to be your friend." ‘‘Why do you think you’re going to be my friend?” I demanded, wide-eyed. “I haven't done one tiling that can pos sibly show me in a good light.” Mrs. Bryce sat back and looked at me slowly, almost pityingly, out of her gray green eyes, and then she said: “I know Jimmie pretty well, little Princess. I know the kind of girl he’d marry. I’ve studied you, too, and you— you remind me of a spray of lilac. I like lilacs. “Do you remember, Jimmie, tire night we sat out watching the stars fade and fitting all the girls we know to flower names? There was that poppy person, Jeannette Royce, and May Varden, a little lily of the valley. We didn't know any lilac girls then, did we, Jimmie?”— Copyright, 1920. (To Be Continued.)

J Earmarks of Good Breeding We have all of us heard of a dozen dif ferent ways of “telling a lady” or “a gen tleman” from the rest of humanity. Prim old-fashioned women used to say you “could always tell a lady by her gloves.” the idea being that, however worn her clothes might be, if she were a “perfect lady” she would never go with her fingers peeping through the tips of her gloves. Then we have been told real ladles do not wear diamonds in the morning and real gentlemen never wear diamond studs. Ladies and gentlemen, too, we are told, never chew gum, and some persons take that as an infallible criterion. The longer we live and the more -widely we travel the less we get to depend on any of these signs. Sometimes the best and the bravest of men wear diamond studs and folk with Mayflower ancestors and whole rows of Harvard degrees to their family's credit at unguarded moments chew gum or wear tan button shoes or made neckties or some of the other things that "perfect gentlemen” are never supposed to do. When all is said and done, there is per haps no better criterion of what we choose to call good breeding than clean linen. If you are n tired, worn mother, with little advantages to offer your boys who are starting out in the world, there is nothing you cun teach them that will stand them in much better stoad than this habit. The office boy who is always the pos sessor of a clean, neat handkerchief and whose collars never show the marks of yesterday’s wear is sure to attract favor able attention if for nothing else.—Copy right, 1920.

Our coal has gone up enormously and we must advance our coke prices correspondingly, but during the month of April we will continue our winter price.

We intend to supply the In dianapolis dealers with all the coke they have ordered for this I month, and we will ship them more if they call for it and we can spare it. But our coal supply is lower than it has ever been before since • we have been in business as we must meet our contract obliga tions to other customers. There fore, if there should be a rush of orders later in the month, it is quite likely that we could not fill them.
