Railroad Suet for 34 Centi.
In order to escape the liability for
$1,000 fine under the federal statute
forbidding favoritism to passengers,
the Pennsylvania Railroad has
brought suit in the Orange, N. J.,
district court to recover 34 cents
from Jules Jacobs, of 20 Wallace
street, Newark.
On a trip from Philadelphia to Wil
mington six months ago Jacobs ten
dered a ticket, the time limit on which
had expired. The conductor accepted
it under protest, with passenger's
business card. Reference to the legal
department of the road brought an
opinion that the ticket had only a re
Late value of 33 cents. As the Philadelphia-Wilmington
fare is 67 cents,
suit for the remaining 34 cents was
The legal department took six
weeks to gather evidence. Jacobs has
hired a Newark lawyer to look after
his interests. New York World.

Mrs. I'.owuer was too astonished to
say more, hlie had een times when
Mr. liowser wanted to take her head
off for far less, and yet he was as
good as pie over this.
Mr. Howser may boast that he Is a
chef of the ilrst water, Dut It is only
a boast. lie Is not eveu a seventh
class cook wlieu it conies down to
brass tacks. Without coat or vest
and In his old slippers, he moused
around the kit' lien until he found some
cold potatoes and a dozen eggs In a
box. Then he built a fire and started
in on the coffee first. No matter how
much water he used to half a cupful
of the ground coffee nor bow lung be
boiled It. he was satisfied with It, The
frying pan was made red hot, a chunk
of bacon put In to furnish the grease,
and while three eggs were burning to
cinders he sliced In four or Ave pota
toes, und his morning banquet was
ready, lie was devouring it ou the
dining room table when there came a
ring at the basemeut door, and he said
to himself:
"There's Magio now, and that let's
nie out of a tlx.''
Hut it wasn't Maggie. It was a great
big trump Instead, and he wanted
something to break his morning fast.
"See here, Willie," said Mr. Bowser
as he stood in the door; "did you ever;
do a family washing?"
"Iid I? Did 1?" replied the trump.
"Well, you cau bet your life I have
thousands of them. Didn't 1 do all the
washing for my Invalid wife, who Is
now hi heaven, for twelve long years?
Then her happy soul passed away, and
I went to a laundry, and I would have
been, there yet earning my $20 a week
if au Infernal submarine had not tor
pedoed the whole business."
"My ttife is sirk and our cook has
gone." said Mr. Hnwser, "and h-re Is
a whole Monday wash to do. If you
will help me through with it I'll give
you your breakfast and lunch and a
big round dollar In cash."
"Say no more. I'm your man.
Hreakfast comes first and then the
easy work. It was always a Joy to me
to do a washing."
Mr. liowser told him that he would
have to get liiown breakfast, and led
111 in to the kitchen. The tramp smiled
as he saw the nine eggs In a box and
the cold potatoes left over by Mr. How
ser. lie took one smell of tin- coffee
(nt and shook his bead In a doubtful
way mid soon had a new supply steam
ing aw.-iy oil the stove, lie used a lib
eral hunk of forty live cent butter to
grease the way for the whole nine eggs,
and then he broke them all Into the
frying pan. When his slk'ed cold po
tatoes were warmed up he was ready
for his meal
"You took the whole nine eggs!" said.

Mr. Itowser did so. und when he had
finished, if he had had a sJass to look
Info, he would have probably taken
that tramp by the neck then mid there,
lie was a blue man from top to toe.
Ills hair, what there was of It, was
as blue as the bine Danube. Ills eye
brows were blue. There were fifty
streaks up and down Ids face, and
each was bluer than the other, lie
had Introduced a new style of caris't
slipper to the marketa blue one.
Cold water was let Into the tub and
the clothes stirred around, and after
a quarter of an hour things didn't look
ipilte as blue under the tramp's orders,
Kach garment was lifted up and put
through the rinuer. The ringer had
always been of a pearl color. It was
now blue. As (he Inst garment was
passed through Mr. liowser stood back
and said:
"I believe we lime made some thun
dering mistake about the thing!"
"it can't he," was the reply.
"Hut look at the blue! Am I going
to wear a blue shirt around after this
and sleep between blue sheets and lay
my head on a blue pillow'"
"Voti simply don't understand up to
date methods of laundry work.
will now bang the washing on (he line,
and you'll see that blue lade away like
a scared rabbit before a hound dog."
Together they had hung out part of
the clothes, when two things occurred
to Interrupt them. Hack windows went
up, and heads and shoulders were
thrust out, and the alley fence began
to be lined with children. There were
laughing and tittering and calling, and
somehow or other Mr. How-er got the
Idea that they were ikliig fun at
those blue garment.
Also the cook came along. She had
fallen and hurt her knee the previous
liight miuI was too lame to walk. She
entered the kitchen and saw the blue
floor, the blue tubs, the blue water, the
blue tramp, the blue Mr. liowser. mid
she looked out and saw the blue clothes
on the line. Willi a shriek she ran up
stairs, and live minutes later, when Mr
How ser followed her, he found her and
Mrs. Howser looking out of one of the
back windows. They turned at his steps
and looked him up and down. Then
both sank to the floor and broke into
hysterical laughter.
"What is It?" Innocently asked Mr
Hut they could not answer him. lie
turned and walked downstairs, not an
gered, but a little grieved. Vj take it
out on the tramp, but Willie had de
parted,. So had the silver butter dish
and the sugar bowk lie could stay no
leaner. A feeling of blue depression
had come over him, and he thought Mr.
Howser might be a hard hearted man
if aroused.
Half an hour later Mrs. Howser and
the cook came down ami got that wash
ing out of sight and then pitched In
and got Mr. Howser a fine luncheon
Mrs. Howser had laughed her illness
away. Mr. Bowser kept his ro on her
ana dis ears open, but n remarks
were made. Uow could they be? Mr.
Bowser had been good vscv. verv
