The Four Occupants Leaped for Life When They Realized the Dan ger They Were In, and Mr. Per shing Barely .Made a Landing. A most narrow escape from drowning was made yesterday ev ening at San Benito, when about dusk, an automobile party, consist ing of Judge Fred Brasted of Okla. jiuuid ouy, Kooert Henderson, Rob- ert Whittaker and R. L. Pershinjr leaped from their automobile, jut as it plunged into the canal where the water was fully eight feet deep. The machine was running along at medium speed, and as it came to ue crest of a little knoll, Mr. Pershing, at the steering wheel, saw the water not more than ten feet away. He reversed his engines, putting on the brakes, but the distance was too snort, ana the machine went splas ms uie center ot the c how the occunants of ul0.cil jumped out in such mfTie car lmost iiiMHRi short space comprehensible, but they did, and have only a few bumps and bruises as souvenirs of the event. The party were on the military ( iuau UCdl tijf Otlll UL'llUU IJULUpilig station anu expecteu to cross tue canal, as usual, at this point over the bridge. To the entire surprise of Mr. Pershing, who was driving, when they came to where the bridge formerly stood, he could only see water. He shouted to his compan ions to jump, which they did, land ing in safety. Mr. Pershing also jumped, barely in time, landing right on the edge of the canal, and barely escaping with his lfe. It was aftrwards learned that the bridge had been removed 25 yards south of where it formally stood. Mr. Pershing said he had not re ceived any warning that the bridge had been taken away. The automobile is entirely sub merged in eight feet of water, only the top of the rear part of the ma chine remaning in sight to mark its resting place. All the belongings of the party, consisting of several suit cases, over coats, etc., went down with the ma. chine. She Identified Herself, All Bight. "I'm very sorry to trouble you, madam," said the bank teller polite ly, "but you'll have to be identi fied." He pushed the check across the marble slab toward her as he spoke. "luentified?" repeated the lady; what does that mean.' Isn't the check good?" The ban., man did not smile, for this was the thirty seventh lady who had asked this question that day. "I have no doubt it is," he said, "but I don't know you. Do you know anybody in the bank?". "Why, I'm Mrs. Weathery," ex plained the lady; ' didn't you see my nam on the -check? See here it is." The- teller shook his head wear ily. "You must be identified," he in sisted; "you must bring somebody who knows you." The lady drew herself up. "That check," she said, with digni ty "was given me by my husband. There's his name on it. !-" you . know him?'" "I do," said the teller, "b'tt I non't know you.' I "Then," said the lady. .-'Til p'iow j yen who I am. .My husband is a tall, thin man with reddish hr.ir. His face is smooth shaven. He has a mole on one cheek and looks some. think like a gorilla, some people say, but I don't" think so. When he talks 1 he twists his mouth to one side, and one of his front teeth is missing. He wears a No. 15 collar, a No. 6 shoe and won't keep his coat but toned. He's the hardest man to get money out of you ever saw it took me tnree aays to get tuis cuecK. i The banker waved nis nana.

TRADE MORAL irying to win a girl's love by taking her aunt j buggy riding is like an attempt to do business without adver- tising. The aunt enjoys the j buggy ride, but It doesn't help ! your cause with the girl. The merchant who wants to win the home folks' trade will win if he plugs persistently through these columns. i j They Knew Him Best. i "I hope you don't mind my ask- ! ing," said a woman diffidently, "but suoum I call you professor or doc tor?" "Oh, call me anything you like," was the great man's rejoinder. "Some people call me an idiot." "Really?" the lady murmured. with sweet innocence.
