The grass that grows on a certain pasture known to the geogra
phers as Washington, is tall and lush and abundant. The Sheep that
roam thiß paßtUTe were fatter than most Sheep, until—
At the time of which the tale tells there came to the pasture
a Wolf in Sheep's clothing, whose name was Dirty Dollars, and who
was minded to dwell in this pleasant, smiling land. Dirty Dollars
was as greedy as he was cunning and as cowardly as he was cruel.
There came under the influence of Dirty Dollar* a Sheep who
aspired to be tlic Itell Bheep of the Flock. If you do not know what
a Bell Sheep is, think of a governor. This Mheep w«« vain 1 weak
and selfish und by nature a snob. He was known to the Flock as
To "Putty" Dirty Dollars made known the fact that he was a
Wolf. Whereupon "Putty" fawned and cringed, after the manner
of snobs, and paid him compliments.
"Bell Sheep, eh?" Bald Dirty Dollars. "Why?"
"It is, sire," said "Putty," "an office of much dignity and Im
portance. "And," he added, "there are perquisites?"
"Humph!" grunted Dirty Dollars, showing his yellow fangs in
a leering grin. "What are these perquisites?"
"The Bell Sheep," "Putty" explained, "leads the Flock and so
comes first to the tallest, sweetest grass."
"If I make you the Bell Sheep of the Flock, what then?"
growled Dirty Dollars.
"I would serve you loyally and faithfully," said "Puttty"—"l
and all my friends. If at any time you should want anything done,
you would have but to command us."
"Good!" said Dirty Dollars. "You shall be the Bell Sheep.
But tell your gang that I shall stand for no monkey business."
And so "Putty," through the influence of Dirty Dollars, became
the Bell Sheep, and, though the grass grew as abundantly as before,
there was never anything left for the Flock when the Bell Sheep
and his gang had eaten their fill. The Bell Sheep and his gang grew
fat and sleek, but the Flock went hungry, so that the flesh wasted on
their bones and they scarcely had strength to graze.
In the night, when the Flock was sleeping. Dirty Dollars would

of witnesses In the $100,000

Storle against Fred C. Horgan.
The Storle home sits down and
the neighbors' houses all have a
fine view of that front porch and
testimony was universal that the
little love drama thereon enact

Mrs. Mary J. Cass, across tne

had seen him repeatedly come out
on the porch where Nellie was,
put his arms around her and hu,g

first he slew because he was hungry. Later he slew In the lust of

jaws, he would rip the throat wide open and thrust his yellow fangs
deep Into the gaping wound to drink tlie warm blood and devour the
still quivering flesh.
At such iiiin-s the Bell Sheep kept very atill. lest his bell should
ring and waken the Flock. For Dirty Dollars had said he would
"stand for no monkey business."
The Flock complained bitterly.
"Why is it," the Sheep asked one another, "that, though thU to
a fertile pasture, there is nothing for us but stubble?"
"How many times must I tell you," said the Shepherd D<^g, who
overheard their mutUrlngs, "that there is a Wolf in Sheep's clothing
among you? And 'Putty,' whom you have chosen to lead you, is *
traitor. He serves, not you, but the Wolf."
"We know of no Wolf," said the Flock, and went on nibbling
at the stubble, while the Bell Sheep and the gang fattened on lush
"I know there is a Wolf," said the Shepherd Dog, "because I

Dirty Dollars, scenting trouble, called the Bell Sheep to him and said:
"The Shepherd Dog threatens to make trouble. He is a danger

The Bell Sheep and his satellites—sycophants all—taking their
orders from Dirty Dollars, spread false nnd vile rumors throughout
the Flock.
"They do say," babbled the scandal-mongers—and there are,
alas! many such in every Flock—"they do say that tlie Lamb who
was killed last night filled the belly, not of a Wolf, as tlie Shepherd
Dog would have us believe, but of the Shepherd Dog himself."

Loan Shark Preyed
On R. R. Employees
Not only do the "professional" loan sharks, those who frankly
admit that they gouge the wage-earner, ply their unspeakable
traffic in dirty dollars in Taconia, but there are probably a score
or more of saloonkeepers and boarding house and cheap hotel
proprietors, who take wage-earners' notes and assignments of sal
ary for paltry loans, charging usurious rates of interest.
In Justice Evans' court yesterday, John P. Hernison admitted
that he charged 120 I'Klt CENT A YEAR INTEREST on loans
that he had made to 1 '■■ It. Brooks, an employe of the Chicago, Mil
waukee and Puget Sound railroad.
Hermson conducts his shark game on the side, as it were; he
also runs the Raymond .saloon at 2323 Pacific avenue.
This "amateur" loan shark brazenly testified yesterday that
he loaned $45 to Brooks on the ' O. K." of one Gleason who was
employed by the railroad as a timekeeper. Hermson said that It
was understood that Gleaaon would deduct $40.50 from Brooks'
wages. Officials of the company heard of this transaction and
Gleason fount! himself unable to collect the money for his friend
Hermson. Incidentally, Gleason lost his job as timekeeper.
Yesterday Hermson brought suit to recover $45, which repre
sented the principal. It seems.
In giving ilu- judgment for $86, Justice Evans called attention
to the state usury law, which provides that If any one either di
rectly or indirectly attempts to obtain a higher rate of Interest
than I - per cent per annum he can only recover the principal, less
the amount of interest he attempted to obtain, and shall also be
compelled to pay the costs of the action.
In the meantime, don't overlook the fact that the "profes
sional" loan sharks are Btlll on the job, meaning,

, Dirty Dollars chuckled as these rumors spread.
I They came to the ears of the faithful Shepherd Dog, who was
more than ever determined to find the Wolf, and also bring the
Flock to a realization of the cause of its danger. He went among
the,' Sheep and said:
"You are hungry because you let the Bell Sheep and his gang
go before you. They eat the grass and leave you the stubble. If
they were less greedy, there would be enough, and more than enough
grass for all. Time and again I have warned you against the Bell
Sheep and his master, the Wolf. But you have not listened."
At this the Bell Sheep and all his followers pretended a great
Indignation, as Dirty Dollars had told them to do.
"It is an ancient wheeze," said Dirty Dollars, "but It always
"How dare you," cried the Bell Sheep and his gang, "Bmlrch
our fair pasture? Are we not prosperous? Are we not the envy of
all other flocks? Where in all the world will you find grass so
sweet and abundant as here? What will the other Flocks think of
us when they learn that you, our Shepherd Dog, have maligned us
But a murmur ran through the Flock. "It is true," the Sheep
said, "that the grass is sweet and abundant, but we do not get a
chance to eat it. And it may be true, as the Shepherd Dog Bays,
that there Is a Wo.lt in Sheep's clothing among us, for many of our
number have been destroyed."
There came a day when the Shepherd Dog and Dirty Dollars
met face to face, and the Shepherd Dog liked not the fit of Dirty
Dollars' coat.
"What kind of a Sheep are you?" demanded the Shepherd Dog.
"A perfectly respectable Sheep," Dirty Dollars replied. "I am
a member of the Chamber of Commerce, I move in the best circles,
and I go to church ©very Sunday."
"You are a liar!" said the Shepherd Dog. "You are a Wolf,
anfl your name is Dirty Dollars."
