The brick stood up Beveral inches from the street level, as many of the T. H. & P. paving bricks are wont to do. Mrs. Crew fell jiorne to the pavement, packages flying. Pa trolman Hryiin assisted hen- to her feet, and sent her home. She was badly bruised. Then the police proceeded to call up Bean's office and tell the T. R. & P. officials just what they thought about •»* paving between the wheels. An apologetic murmur came back over the telephone wire, to gether with a promise that work men would fix the Broadway paving between the wheels Mon day. \ iii.is mill Holiday Stationery at discounts.

Son Is a Mayor; Father Would Be AI'HTIN K. (.KM II IIS Mr jack iummniMt. TIfIATTL.E, Dec. IV.—lt isn't olten that a father follows his hou's footsteps politically. But that's the case with Aus tin K. Griffiths, once councilman and chief of police of SeaUle, whose 25-year-old son, Tom Grif fiths, former football captain at the University of Washington, his just been elected mayor of Co& --mopolis, a Southwest Washington town. The elder Griffiths is a candi date for mayor of this city. Twice before he has made the race, each TOM GRIFFITHS. time to defeat. "I take my hat off to my boy," he exclaimed at the news of hlB son's election. "And 1 hope to follow in lilb footsteps." Mrs. Griffiths, the proud moth er and wife, expects to havo two mayors in the family soon. Tom Griffiths, the youngster, worked up to the executive"?! chair by hard plugging in a lumber mill. A polished University of Washington graduate and athletic hero, he elected to toil with his hands, beginning in the mill yard at $26 a month. The lesßoiiß of clear gportx manship which he applied to hi i humble job, coupled with th> energy of a gridiron star, soon won him the esteem of hi.; la boring fellows and a better job. He is now assistant superintend ent at the mill, as well as mayor. Austin Griffiths, the dad, nv.i the law us his stepping atom*. While councilman he was ap pointed police chief by Mayor Hiram Gill, against whom ho had run. But law didn't land him In the executive's chair. "Come on, Dad, keep trying!"
