GNE HUNDRED WOMEN UNBRIDLED TONGUES THE IMCII3IOXD PALLADIUM VXD SUX TELEGRA3L SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 2. 1908. TALKED SCANDAL IN TABERNACLE ITtica, N. Y., February 1 Gossiping women met in convention at the Rev. Henry Mcllvray's tabernacle in Little Falls this afternoon, one hundred of them from the towns of the Mohawk Valley accepting his invitation to as semble ami talk about their neighbors. It was a breezj session. From his rudely constructed pulpit liiRt Sunday, Mr. Mcllvray, who is preaching the Gospel to all those who care to wander in his t.tbernacle and help fill up his coffers, and who first gained fame hereabouts by acting as Spiritual adviser to Chester Giliettc, now in prison for the murder of Grace Urown, startled the people in the vi cinity by announcing that on each "Wednesday afternoon for a month he would preside at a. circle, 'the , urpo.se of which was to allow the people, es pecially the women, to ass- inlile ami talk about their neighbors. He pointed a moral that by doing Inls they would have the opportunity to k-penk tlieir minds under cirmm Manees where no harm would result. For an hour today a buzzing; sound was hpnrrl in the tih-rnacle. Mr. Mc-: llvray was alone with the women, re- j porters were barred and the exact tales! were hard to get. Nevertheless the; evangelist met the news writers after j the session and told them it had been ' a success. Scandal, he said, seemed to , have the first place on the long list of topics for the gossipers. . lie refused, to give out any names, but said that he was sure some of the women had great ly relieved their minds. Married men running about with oth er women and wives doing the same with men other than their own was one of the principal topics of gossip. Troubles with choir singers, school j teachers, church worshippers and the like came in for a good share of the' buzzing. Those who quarrel with their neighbors over back yard fences : and those who fail to pay their debts! were held up in scorn by some women. ! while those talked about in turn ridi- culed those who hud previously ben with the evangelist. , "Yes." t he evangelist said, '"the first circle was a success and they will be continued aw scheduled." OLD MAN COUNTENANCES DANCING HOW AFTER OPPOSING IT FOR MANY YEARS Mlddletown. N. Y.. Feb. 1. "Old .loe" Culbertson. one of the best known far mers in Orange county, has changed his opinion about dancing. Up to to day he always maintained that Satan pot most of his recruits in the ball loom and that, frivolous folks who glid ed over the floor in the. waltz or two step could cease to worry about their tuture destination. The fact that a barn dance was re sponsible for his intercepting a thief just as the latter was about to annex a valuable horse, accounts for the old man's change of heart. For some weeks past his son Richard had been teasing him for pennir;sion to attend a hop scheduled for last night. Every lime the youth brought up the subject his father would pull the scriptures on him. Wednesday night arrived and Itichprd declared his intention of go ing. "Don't go, Dick," said the father. "Nothing but evil comes of it. If you disrespect my wishes you'll repent be fore the winter is over." "Sorry, pop." said the son, "but 1 promised a certain party I'd split the floor in a good old-fashioned break down. It was early this morning when Dick reached the old homestead. As he drove up to the barn he noticed a stranger landing out his father's best horse. He jumped from the buggy, v hereupon the stranger took to his heels and escaped. The racket awakened the old man. When he reached the barn and realized that his son's arrival had prevented the theft of a horse he said: "There's lot worse things than danc in." Guess you'd better invite the neighbors here some night and I'll shake a leg myself." E DISPLAY SAYS JUDGE Warning Issued to Depart ment Stores. Kansas City, Mo., Feb. 1 The imi tation feminine leg displaying filmy hosiery and dainty boots is suggestive - almost indecent and is to be tolerat ed in this city no longer. The de partment stores have been so notified by Judge Wallace, and the blue law grand jury now in cession. Judge Wallace, who says its a felony to sell a cigar or a box of chocolates on Sun day, had his attention called to the hosiery display in a local department store window the other day. It was a beautiful dispiay. The colored web by stockings were drawn over life-like Imitations from the knee downn. "Awful!" stuttered the judge. Hence the tip to the big stores, "if they con tinue to debauch the tender youth of Kansas City by showing them dainty feminine ankles, undtaped, they will go to jail, that's all."

Ross when he was sum moned to prepare the body of J. T. Jef fries for the grave. "You can make a fool out of nie once, but not. twice." And so another undertaker had to be summoned to do the work. Jeffries was a practical joker the funny man of Brownsville. He was always having fun with somebody. He was employed as night watchman at the plant of the West Penn Electric Light company. Finally the electric light company dispensed with the ser vices of Jeffries and since that time he had been despondent. He swallow ed the contents of a bottle of carbolic acid. Dr. L. C. Wagner worked over him for some time, but finally he pro nounced him dead. Undertaker Ross was summoned and was busy with the first work of preparing the body for the grave, when Jeffries suddenly sat up in bed. Ross went through a win dow in his excitement, and when he reached the street he decided that it was just one of Jeffries' jokes and went home. Jeffries' scream, however, brought the family to his side, and Dr. Wagner was again summoned. Jeffries was really alive, and continued to live un til early in the morning, when he died beyond all doubt. semMiowinnio Bnnmflfiii & Co ORG ALLY PAY ALE At the Annual Clearance Sale Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, ONLY Rally Day on Shirts This is the big day for mens shirts, every shirt in the store to receive a deeper cut, to be given on this day only.

Harris Friedman, a dentist, was su ing Michael J. Doyle. Friedman swore that after he had threatened to sue him for a $130 dentist bill Doyle gambled, and drank, and gave away money to questionable characters, with the deliberate purpose of spend ing every cent he had. He got rid of it in a week. Friedman swore, before he could get judgment. Doyle was found guilty of fraud and sentenced to three months' imprisonment. AMUSEMENTS a a' n a it a single song show- is the unapproach erl record held by Geo. M. Cohan's, "The Honeymooners,' which comes to the Genuett, Feb. 13, direct from an all summer run at the magnificent New Amsterdam theatre. New York where it broke all records for the sea son. Cohan wrote "The Honeymoon ers" for himself and he out did all his preceding efforts. He wanted a ve hicle that would be certain to remain on Broadway all summer and he spar ed no effort to make the song show a wonderful production. He gave it a stirringt exciting plot of love and pol itics and mistaken identity in a Ver mont village; he gave it a score of musical numbers; he gave it a snappy, brilliant dialogue and he staged it with almost reckless disregard of ex pense. The result spelled immediate and lasting success. THEATRICAL CALENDAR. NEW PHILLIPS. Week of Feb. 3 Vaudeville. GENNETT. Week of Feb. 3 North Bros Feb. 13 "The Honeymooners."
