NEWSPAPERS GUNNING FOR LIARS. During the recent Red Cross membership campaign the Seattle “Star" offered a $'>00 reward for the “nailing" of lies told about the American Red Cross and its activi ties. Says the “Star":—“You’ve lieai d the lie about the log ger who was upposed to have written an old lady telling her he had bought the socks she made for soldiers." "You've heard the lie about all Red Cross speakers who were supposed to be getting rich from Red Cross re ceipts." “You've heard the lie which tried to brand every! worker in the Red Cross as a war grafter." "You’ve heard the lie that the women taking member-1 ships, got a commission." j “All these stories are lies—lies, originated by traitors, but sometimes carried by fools." Dozens of these stories have been traced down by Red % Cross officials themselves and every single story has prov ed false. The “Star" in the heat of its patriotic indigna tion. offers the *500 reward in the hope of deterring some! of the agitators who mit designates as “fools” or “trait ors."

To this class belongs the story of the resurrection of a fish called the “Chin dagaks.” which it is reported, will come to life again after having lain frozen solid in the ice for months. According to the authorities con nected with the United States Kish Ci mmission. the ( hindagaks is a new comer not only into t ne neici oi iwi literature but also into tie* lists ol known species. None ot the experts on the Commission has heard ol it before. They, declare that when a fish is entirely frozen, life is extinct: though it is possible tor a fish to ap pear to be frozen when its flesh i. only stiffened from the cold. The blood is still uncongealed, therefore the fish is still alive and will, of course, revive gradually when placed in water of the proper temperature. Kven this will happen only to a fish which has been caught through a hole t in the ice and left lying exposed on the ice surface until it has become stiffened from the cold. -- STKAMNG IS NO C RIMK IN C ROOKKD C ARD GAMK LORAIN, Ohio, Jan. 22. — “All is fair in love and war,” Shakespeare tells us, but it remained for a local; court dignitary to go farther and de clare that “everything goes in aj crooked poker game." A man has a right to steal the pot when cheating is going on in a card game for money. This was the deci sion of the court when Judge L. H. Job discharged John Deehiocvis, who was arrested on the charge of steal ing $200. The testimony proved that the man was “framed” in a poker ■ game; after he had lost heavily, he j stole the pot. “You are discharged,” said the' judge to the prisoner. “Go steal again vhen they frame on you.” I The Delicatessen | COOKED FOODS, HOT AND COLD TO CARRY HOME.
