NRW YORK. IT tlm notions of two old clothes 'men are to be accepted, the

tin unheard of scarcity of second-hand garments. Until men inndo It clear

Clothes lines, wesklt showers and other
activities calculated to keep the wenr

All of these facts and about n
carload of language wus brought forth
when n flat dweller lu an uptown

on the lloor below where the beckoner lived. Doora were opened, slammed
und locked, windows raised and the roars of alarmed tenunu presently
brought the police.
They found the two oP clothes men rolling over and over and hither and
thither and elsewhere on the second floor. When separated they Immediately
accused each other of everything and made It clear that from henceforth
until the day they roll Into their mausoleums they will sue each other In
every available American court on every possible charge attending the sale
of old clothes and allied Industries.
In the Harlem court each man Insisted that the other hnd attempted to cut
him out of business and that the flat dweller had never even considered the
other when he beckoned. They declared that nowadays a suit of second-hand
clothes Is a clothing Kohlnoor and that for another clothing dealer to crash
Into a house and steal a beckon Is "positive the worst as can he In such busi
ness like this." Each Insisted that he had bought nothing n'l day and had

the words tumbling over one another in the haste of their delivery.
"I am a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution. We pro
tect flngs. The one you have flying out there Is In a condition that makes It
a disgrace and R legal offense, for a federal'law forbids any public office flying
a flag that Is either torn or soiled. Tlease take It down. It has been soiled
and torn a long time."
The officer looked very much surprised. lie gazed earnestly at the bright
eyed woman, exquisite in appearance and a little bit frightened.
Then he turned to a' policeman seated In the office. "Go out there," he
thundered, "and take down that flag."
The Incident was closed. The lady departed. But the next morning,
when she passed that way, taking her surgeon husband to St. Luke's hospital,
a fine new flag was flying from station No. 6.
Doorkeeper Succumbed to' High-Sounding Title
WASniNGTON. At a night session up on Capitol mil not long ago a large
person from the West, with considerable nerve and no modesty, en
deavored to get into one of the public galleries. Because of the fear on the
part of a certain employee that he will
be kidded, to death by this narrative,
,et us not ask whether It was the
house or senate gallery. However, the
large person had a fine set of mus
taches, upturned and diplomatic In
their general aspect. With him trailed
three women dressed to kill In the
3nest stuff you ever saw In all your
Well, all the galleries were filled,
except the executive gallery and the
aiplomatic gallery. The large nervy
person didn't think he could bluff his way Into the president's own reserva
tion, but he waltzed up to the diplomatic gallery, and it was just his luck that
the regular veteran doorkeeper was not on the Job at that moment.
The substitute, though, looked him over, and decided he must be some
thing or other with all that mustache and that fleet of females.
"It is necessary to have your card, though," said the doorkeeper, "because
I have to know who you are."
"I have no cards with me," responded Nervo. "But I am the Ahkoond of
Swat and these are three of my wives."
And with that the doors swung open and the quartet of four-flushers went
In, sat down, gazed upon the session below ad later retired.
The next day someone told the substitute doorkeeper that Nervo had put
one over on him.
"Aw, shucks," replied the substitute, "that ain't nothing. Freaks like that
butt In here every day." 1
Allege That "Millionaire Miser" Stole Potatoes
CHICAGO. John H. Hewitt, known as "the millionaire miser of Rogers
Park," appeared at the Sheffield avenue police station to face T. V. Rege
'n, who swore out a warrant for him on the charge of stealing potatoes from
a garden plot cultivated by Regelln,
the potatoes and replanting the vines to cover up all truces of the thef (.
"I decided I'd find out," said Regelln. "So I lay down In the grass near
the patch. Along comes Hewitt with a lard pall and a trowel and goes to
digging. Then he'd fillip the hole and straighten the vines.
"I talked It over with my partners and. we decided we had lost about
$30 worth, and if he (Hewitt) wouldn't come across we'd have him arrested.
He refused, so we took him to the station." '
Hewitt, who is eighty-four, was brought Into court four year ago by his
daughter,. Mrs. Jessie M. Wynne, who tried to have him declared insnne. He
testified thnt he keeps a record of every
lived on $55.85. . , , :

ROCKS MAKE A GOOD WALK
We made a walk the other day en
tirely out of rougli "nigger head" (slli
sclous) stones. These rocks were gath
ered out of the field where they were
In the way, and thus two purposes
were served by their utilization.
The method of building was as sim
ple as the material used. A trench
was dug along each side of the walk
and stones put Into It, so that they
projected about an Inch above the sur
face of the ground.
The earth was packed back around
them to keep them firm. Then the
space between was covered with small
er stones, the middle of the walk be
ing made higher, a very little, than
These stones were beaten down with
n sledge, so that one could walk over
them without too much Injury to the
shoe leather, and the whole then cov
ered with sawdust and cinders.
This fills up the crevices and holds
the rocks steady until they settle into
place, and makes the walk smooth and
There Is nlmost always a need for
more walks on a fnrm. Sometimes
there is a very pressing need. A few
hours work may save a wonderful
amount of mud-wadlDg.
Materials for walks Is not hard to
find. Beside the standard brick and
concrete, there are shells, rough stones
of all kinds, gravel from creeks or
beds, cinders, sawdust and tan bark.
All these mnke good walks, although
the latter ones require frequent re-
Neither Is construction a hard Job.
The main essentials nre good side lines
that will not be torn loose or heaved
out and that are straight nnd smooth,
and some provision for drainage.
The center of a walk should be made
higher in practically all enses; nnd
where wnter Is likely to stand on one
side, means should be provided to car
ry It off.
In the barnyard nnd other places
where a walk could not be very well
kept up, stepping stones, well placed,
will answer the purpose, nnd not only
snve lots of muddy walking, but also
help to get rid of any useless rocks you
may have scattered about In the way.
CARE OF THE PLANTS
If a plant appears sick, examine Its
roots. Perhaps you will find that It
needs repotting. If dead or rotten
leaves are found remove them. If for
any cnuse live roots nre removed
