Bray ton bad quite an exciting time
Monday night, when at a little paat
midnight the alarm of fire was heard
At first it was'thought to be the
the Inmber yard and everyone rushed
to the scene and on arriving it vai
found to be at the rear of the post
office building where a bonfire had
been started during the day and it
must bave been smouldering as the
strong wind fanned it to a blaze,
catching a wheelbarrow full of trash
on fire which stood near. There was
-/u no damag%doue -uly consuming the
wheelbarrow of rubbish, but with
the wind blowing like it did it
might have caused a big blaze, hait
it not been seen when it was.

News was received la London re
cently of the death of Joseph Cres
wlck, who while fleeing from justice
accomplished one of the most remark
able walking feats on record, says the
Creswick was undergoing a sen
tence for forgery in Rhodesia and
while being conveyed from one prison
to another by train (as reported some
months ago) conceived the Idea of
escaping from his guards. As his
legs were heavily ironed the task was
by no means an easy one, but one
night, when the train in which he
was being conveyed was between
Buluwayo and Salisbury and his
guards were asleep Creswick quietly
opened the carriage door and jumped
out. When he reached the ground he
fell but was not badly hurt During
the remainder of the night he shuffled
along in the dark and at daybreak
could see the railroad in the distance.
He decided to walk in a straight line
from it, which he did for several days,
still with his feet shackled. iiM
Day after day and night after night
he rubbed his irons with the sharp
est pieces of rock he could find until
at last he was able to throw his man
acles aside. After this Creswick went
on with great strides through the un
known country in which he found
himself, his sole object being to get
to some white settlement.
Some weeks after his escape the
wanderer had a wonderful piece of
luck. In a hut apparently belonging
to a settler he found a gun and some
ammunition, which wnder the circum
stances he did not hesitate to take
possession of. With the gun he
managed to shoot several zebras and
other animals, which provided him
with a welcome meal but unfor
tunately his gun got out of order be
fore his ammunition became exhaust
ed and he had to rely upon fruit for

the conclusion that he had been walk

much progress be fell in with some
natives, who gave him certain direc

must mean the River Congo, and for
several more weeks he continued his
Eight months after his escape from
the train between Salisbury and Bulu
wayo Creswick was found by a party
of Belgians lying in a weak and fever
ish condition about two hundred miles
from Leopoldville on the Congo. They
nursed him back to health and
strength. At Bomba. arrayed in all
the glory of a pair of cricket flannels
and a football jersey provided by his
new friends, the fugitive found a ship
on Which he worked his passage to
Antwerp. From there he got a ship
to London. That, however, led to his
undoing, for while walking in White
chapel he was recognized by Detective
Inspector Belcher of Scotland Yard,
who. arrested him on the charge of es
caping from lawful custody.
He was taken subsequently to Rho
desia as a fugitive offender, and for
his escapade he was sentenced to a
further term of six months imprison
ment during which he died.

Woman in Gray—Thank goodness,
we didn't meet a soul outside and any
one seeing us now couldn't tell but
that we had driven up in that electric

garage rent—not that I mean—of
Woman in Green (hastily)—Good
ness, they've hired all the waiters in
town, I think—four men in the hall
alone,! Yes, I'm going upstairs first.
I'm going to keep my coat, but I think
it's a shame for a hostess to fix her
bedrooms up and have nobody see
them. I heard that she had her own
room done over completely in Circas
sian walnut and blue brocade, but I
don't believe it, for a man told my
husband that her. husband was run
ning awfully close to the wind. Well,
it is Cireassion walnut! Did you ever!
Mercy, this is cheap face powder!
Woman in Gray—Lottie Thorston is
here—that's her coat, the moth-eaten
looking one. She's worn it for ten
years, I believe. Let's go down. Isn't
there a crowd! I suppose everybody
came because there weren't many
other things to go to to-day. You can't
make me believe Mrs. Klimber is so
dreadfully popular. She's just push
ing. Look! Her dress Is a fright!
How do you do, Mrs. Klimber! It's
lovely to see you again! My dear,
your decorations through the rooms
are charming and make such a becom
ing background for you in that sweet
Woman in Green—How are you,
Mrs. Klimber? I needn't ask, because
you are looking awfully well. Dear
me, there are so many people behind
me that I cao't get in even a little bit
of chat. I'll move on!
Woman in Gray—She's got Mrs. Ce
dar and Mrs. Lake assisting. Now,
how in the world did she manage that?
You needn't tell me I know she just
grabbed and cornered them! That's
her way! Just because she has a little
money she dares try anything! Any
body can make a showing who.is will
ing to do that! There's Sarah Hittey
over there and isn't she terribly made
up! Anyone who didn't know she was
35 would say she looked positively

Woman in Green—Let's go on out
into the dining room. I want to get
near that woman with the coral wil
low plumes so I can have a good look
at her. Why, haven't you heard of
her? She's the one who tried to rope
in the Glendennings' son and his mil
lions. She's ten years older than he
and divorced and he was crazy about
her till his father sent him to Mozam
bique or Oshkosh or somewhere. Go
slowly. Well, all I can say is that he
certainly was crazy. I think that type
of face with the big oriental eyes and
scarlet lips is perfectly unladylike. It
makes you think of snake charmers
and things of that sort. Why are men

Klimber's lace tablecloth. Every place
Maccaroon has served this winter I've

for there's $100 worth there!
Woman in Green—Isn't that Etta

her grandfather will leave her half a
million. No wonder she is called the
most popular debutante! My mother
knew her mother when she had to
scrub her own kitchen floor! Did you
ever taste such weird sandwiches in
Woman in Gray—They're awful. And
I know that whipped cream is part
egg. I expect the Klimbers had to
save somewhere, since they got the
Circassian walnut. And such little
dabs of frozen punch! I know where
she got those plates—I saw them at
a mark-down sale one day. With these
lights the gold on them looks almost
like real hand work. Look at those
women in the door, glaring! I think
they want our seats. Some people are
so ill bred. We can get upstairs
through this door. Goodness! Look
at the way things are piled on my
furs! I' never— Oh, you say you

As to dreams, there was a discus

remarked that no man dreamed of
himself as braver than he is. When
the dream came, the dreamer was al
ways the under-dog. He was in hor

picturesque to face It. There may be
men who are brave in their sleep. But
it would be interesting to find one
man outside of the dozen sleeping cow
