blasts have no terrors for R. M. Daf
fieltl, blind newspaper vender. The
"meanest thief in Denver la respon
sible for Dntfleld becoming the pro
prietor of a "steam bested" news

fraternal organisation that a woman
had cheated Duffield to the extent of

presented waa a (20 certificate, they
immediately raised a fund to reim
burse the blind man. Later the fra
ternal organization built a kiosk tn
a recess of Its downtown home, con
necting It with steam pipes from the
lodge rooms and Duffield now dis
penses his wares in comfort.
As the last Saturday in thia month
is Christmas day. your carrier will
call Thursday and Friday and collect

Please remember that these boys at
