Day's Grist in
South Chicago
East Siders Say They Are in
Need of at Least
Five More.
The East Side wants more police
men and an effort will be made next
month to get Chief Shippy to put on
at least five additional patrolmen in
the territory which comes under the
Jurisdiction of the East Side station.
At present there are thirty-seven
men in the station. Of this number
sixteen travel beats and the remaining
twenty-one are superior officers or
operators. With sixteen men 'traveling
beats this only gives the East Side,
Irondale and Hegewisch eight men
each evening to patrol the long, lone
some beats.
The population covered by the East
Side station will reach In the neigh
borhood of 30,000, and to cover this
territory with only eight men days
and the same number nights, is looked
upon as preposterous by other offi
cials through the city.
Yesterday Lieutenant Moore said that
the East Side alone ought to have five
more men to adequately cover the ter
ritory, but stated that he would be
eatisfled If he could get five more men.
When a person takes into consider
ation that an officer has to travel from
One Hundredth street to One Hundred
and Eighteenth street, part of the way
with bad streets, it is no wonder that
a policeman never can be found when
he is wanted.
If Chief Shippy would only come to
the East Side and personally take a
ride over the territory and see the
large amount of work for the small
number of men, it Is certain that the
East Side would receive a new batch
of cops.
Carries 200 "Grasshoppers"
From South Chicago
to Eiverdale.
The first trip of the "Tpurfst," one
of the South Shofe" Outing nd Trans
portation company's boats, was a huge
success and if every other trip of the

Is assured with no room for doubt.

owned by the South Shore Outing and
Transportation company, will make her
Initial trip next Sunday when she will

Copyright. 1903. by Associated Lit
erary Press.
Tolly was to take part in an amateur
"It's such fun," she announced on the
evening of the first rehearsal, "to act
with real men! At school, you know
well, at school we didn't hare any real
The "real men" laughed. There were
three of them. Two were old friends
and admirers of Polly. The third, Brad
ley Rogers, she approved the moment
he was introduced to her.
"Well," asked Tolly gayly, looking
over the printed cast in her hand,
"which of you Is my lover?"
Solemnly, with hands on their hearts,
all three bowed.
"You are all very silly," said Polly,
blushing. "Now, please be serious.
Which of you is to be 'Captain Wheel
er, Claire's lover, absent on the field?"
she continued, reading from the play.
"I am cast for that unfortunate
part," Bert Crawford answered.
"Unfortunate?" queried Polly, and
she raised her pretty eyebrows haugh
tily. "Unfortunate," Bert hastened to ex
plain, "because 'absent on the field' for
two whole acts, you notice, gives these
other fellows too much chance to cut
me out."
4"Oh," smiled Polly graciously, "then
Sir. Marshall and Mr. Rogers are rivals
for my hand, too Claire's hand, I
"Js'o; haven't the pleasure," sighed
Jim Marshall. "I'm only your brother."
"Never mind, Jim," said Polly com
fortingly. "I'll be a real eweet sister to
you. And what are you, Mr. Rogers?"
"Your father," answered Rogers la
conically. Polly found the admission exceeding
ly amusing.
"But what possible chance do my
father and brother have of cutting you
out?" she asked Bert suddenly.
"Oh," explained Bert carelessly, "I
meant they'll cut me out with the au
dience. No chance to win any bouquets
and that sort of thing."
"But you'll win me. I mean what's
her name? Claire."
"Oh, I'll come out strong in the fin
ish," Bert returned confidently, at
which Jim shot him a look that es
caped Polly's notice. It did not escape
Rogers' observation, however, and be
smiled at thu thought of the fun to
como behind the scenes.
"Who's to be my 'girl chum, Nata
lie? " asked Polly, again consulting
the printed cast
"Mrs. Rogers," Bert answered. "And
she'll be dandy in that part too. Where
is she tonight. Brad?"
"Couldn't come. The baby had the
croup or something or other."
Tolly wheeled around .suddenly on
the piano stool and faced Rogors.
"Do you mean to say," she asked ac
cusingly, "that you don't know what's
the matter with the baby?"
Rogers, taken by surprise, looked
very much embarrassed.
He began to stammer an explana
tion, but got no further than "Well,
you see, Miss Noyes," when the
"prompter" arrived and the reading
over of parts and the studying out of
stage business began in earnest.
As the rehearsals of the play pro
gressed Tolly found them absorbing
beyond all her expectations. As It
happened, Mrs. Rogers, owing to the
baby's Illness, had not been able to
take the pjrt of Natalie after all, and
Elsie Williams, Polly's intimate girl
friend, was prevailed upon to try it.
This change in the cast, simple as it
seemed, was the cause of other changes
far less simple.
For one thing. Bert Crawford, whom 1

Tolly had grown through force of habit
to regard as one of her most effective
satellites, suddenly wavered from his
accustomed course and began to re
volve at a very dangerous speed around
Polly's friend Elsie.
Now, Polly ought not to have re
sented this, for she knew very well in
her heart that she never-intended Bert
to develop, so far as she was con
cerned, into anything beyond an obse
quious and ornamental attendant
However, since he was her lover in
the play, it piqued her not a little to
have him constantly missing his cue
while making love to Elsie behind the
scenes instead.
On one of these embarrassing occa
sions Jim Marshal came to the rescue
with what seemed toihim nothing sort
of an inspiration.
'ee here, Polly," he exclaimed Jo
vially as Polly, alone in the center of
the stage. Impatiently waited the dra
matic entry of Captadn Wheeler aft
er his "absence in the field," Tve got
a eimply corking idea. Bert and I will
change parts. You see, ofiC the stage
he's Elsie's lover, and on the stage he's
your's. Now, why not fix it as it really
is and let me be your lover on the
stage as well as off? Don't you think
that would work ut well? I'd be on
hand for this scene, you can bet your
But Polly received his suggestion
with anything but enthusiasm.
"Don't be foolish, Jim, and please
hunt Captain Wheeler," was all she
Accordingly Bert, alias the missing
captain, soon rushed in, and Polly ran
to meet him, "falling into his arms
with a cry of joy," as the stage direc
tions called for.
"Oh, that wlli never do at all," com
plained the prompter. "You don't act
as though you were really glad to see
him, Miss Noyes. And you don't stay
