"Wipe your feet, papa," reminded
papa's eldest daughter as lie stumped
jnuddily on the front porch. Papa ac
cordingly shuffled his feet diligently
upon the wire mat. then stepped upon
a strip of carpet on the porch and by
contorting himself into weird shapes

some damp stork. TJien he changed his
clothes and came downstairs, says the
Galvesion News.
"Did you change your clothe?,' dear?"
inquired his wife, sweetly, eyeing the
chuir in which lie sat with sx^eculative
eye. Papa growled and turned over a
sheet of his paper, for he know all
about that inquiry.
presently he stretched, yawned and
rose. He walked over to the sofa,
heaped with pillows, and lay back
luxuriously just as the middle daughter
came in.
"Why, papa!" she shrieked, "you're
epoiling the sofa pillows. You're lying
right on them." Papa sat up.
"What's this sofa for?" he demanded.
His wife had come in by this timo and
stood side by side with her indignant
"Certainly not to treat as you're
treating it." she said. "If you want to
take a nap, lie on your bed." Papa
arose. His jaw began to grow rigid,
for papa was getting mad. For l<lng
he had put up with this sort of thing
and the limit was reached.
"Take these pillows up to your
rooms," he commanded the assembled
daughters; "this sofa goes out into the
woodshed. This Is no place for useless

of you girls, I don't care which." The

youngest daughter went. Then papa

tolesi, town trustee, atorney and
county supervisor, Is under investiga
tion in connection with the Sausalito
fake poolroom case which' is on -trial
before Superior Judge Lennon today.
Since May 7, when Sheriff Taylor
raided the poolroom and took 10 men
into custody, the authorities have
maintained that the gamblers enjoyed
protection from town officials, but a
night watchman, the late John Creed,
and Town Marshal Jack Hannon were
the only, officers implicated at the
timo. Pistolesi interested himself in
the defense of the poolroom men from
the start, but later gave place to other
attorneys, with the exception of two
defendants. His sudden entrance into
the spotlight of suspicion came, as a
surprise today, especially as he is re
sponsible for the information that an
investigation Is in progress. . -
His statement is substantiated by
District Attorney Boyd, who declares
that the Marin county grand jury will
meet Wednesday to consider the mat
ter. Pistolesi learned of the investi
gation through William Israel, one of
