THERE'S NOTHING NOWADAYS LIKE
BEING A FLOSSIE LITTLE DOG
BY FIDO
(A dog's own description of New
York's new dog hotel.)
NEW YORK. July IT).—Fellow
dogs, get wise.
If you ever come to New York,
don't fail to stop at the new mil
lion-dollar "dog house," or, per
haps I should say, the "dog hotel.
(Jee. it's great! It Is so Frenchy!
It has a regular sheath-gown at

don't know exist. That's why the
editor asked me to write of my
visit to New York's "dog hotel" —
for the enlightenment of country
dogs.

HEINE MAKES HIT
WITH ABE ATTELL
Heinle Hitter's boxing has made
a bit with Abe Attel. Heinle hook
ed up with the Hebrew yesterday
and afterward Abe said of the lit

Kissed me several times.
"Darling," she gurgled between
her sobs, "you are going a—a-a-wy.
Q-a-gOodd bye, .<r-g"
Just then a nurse came to my res
Just then a nurse ramp to my
rescue, and grabbing me out of the
downpour of tears, bustled me
away to the annex.
I wa first taken into a room con
taining several shower baths and
placed beneath one. First hot
water was turned on. It gradually
cooled until ice cold water made
me shiver. About me were several
little porcelain b;>ths. I was finally
plunged into one of these, aud
washed with tar soap, and later on
with scented soap. Then I was
rubbed and massaged and per
fumed.
After I had been thoroughly
dried I was given my dinner on a
beautiful silver service. Water
was served in a sanitary cup.
After dinner I was allowed to
take a little exercise. A leash was
connected from my collar to a wire
sifting across the room, and I trot
ted back and forth until tired.
It was then lied time. The nurse
showed me my sleeping place. It
was a wicker basket, with a curved
top to protect it from draughts. In
the bottom of the basket was a
down cushion, covered with a fine
white linen case, which Is changed
daily. I managed to get a good
night's rest, and was awakened at

know of."
Here's what Heinle tells about
it: "I never was treated so rough
in my life."
The only damiges resulting from
the "friendly" mix-up is a hump on
Heinle's nose.
MIKE DISCOVERS NEW
MOUNTAINS
Mike Lynch Is more of a
comedian every time he conies to
town. He died hard to pick war
witli someone all through the
game, but t'ntp. Hobby Carrnthers
lias the Injun sign on him and he
didn't start hostilities until after
he had lost. 'I hen he discovered
thai there was a lump about the
size of il full-grown pea in tlie
whitewash line between home
plate and third base. Mike figured
that Hilly Hulen beat a bunt be
cause the ball had rolled so slowly
up this mountainous pen that
Waters couldn't handle il in time
to put Hill out at flrst. Following
Mike's complaint Carrnthers went
over and annihilated the bump hy
stepping upon it. When he stood
upon II Mike gssed far off into the
heavens as if Bobby was on top of
Mount "Tacoma." It's likely he
had a lump of dirt in his eye.

It was a game that was Interest
ing from start to finish. Up to the
ninth Rasty Wright could do al
most as he pleased with the
Tigermen, and even in the ninth
he did as he pleased ,it seemed,
for he deliberately allowed Mar
tlnke and Bresino hits. The Tigers
made two runs in the ninth. Their
first two were secured in the third
and fourth.
Here is the way things broke for
Spokane: It was in the fifth when
a gloom was beginning to settle.
The batting order started at the
top of the list with Dave Rowan
Ike Butler was smiling, for he had
had prospered hugely for four in
nings. The Indians had negotiated
three runs in the third, but Ike
thought he had their measures and
prepared to fit them. Well. Dave
Rowan found him and sent the
leather away off Into left field.
Billy Hulen rapped a snappy one
past shortstop. Then Kippert and
Clynes singled in succession.
Bobby .lames walked. Then
Stevens and Mackin singled. Rog
ers went out second to first and
Wright sent one over to first base
and went out.
When it was all counted Spo
kane had four runs, which added
to what they grabbed in tho third
made a total of seven. That was
enough and for the rest of the
game they didn't worry.
Tlie big batter was Billy Hulen,
who got a two sacker in the first
inning, got to first on an error in
the third, singled in the fifth and
another two bagger in the sixth.
Bobby James couldn't run much
and was put cut at first twice,
when if he had been able to run up
to form he would have won lilts.
The new lineup looks mighty
good. Dave Rowan plays as good
a first base as Hulen. He missed a
fast grounder yesterday by being
over confident. Billy Hulen is good
anywhere and played a dandy
game at second. James did well at
third. .

IF WICKLEBRIDGE WERE PRESIDEM
By F. W. Schaefer
"Now, don't think nic silly, Cice
ro," murmured Mrs. Wicklebridge.
"1 am only supposing. Your attain
ments are abovj the ordinary, and
some day it might happen to you,
you know."
"What happen to me, Guinevere?
Get arrested for porch climbing?"
"Of course no; Get elected presi
dent, iv such a case, would I have
to entertain la* istily or would I
have the choice of living a retired
life, devoting myself to good
works?"
"Er-hem," coughed Mr. Wickle
bridge. "I do not think it would
be obligatory upon you to cut a
very wide swath. There are some
perfunctory social duties, however,
that you could not well duck."
"Just so." cooed the wifely Wic
klebridge. "I think at first I
would be somewhat ill at ease in
my exalted position, but later I
would become inured to the —the
what-do-you-rall^t—'fierce white
light that beats upon a throne."
"'Throne,' eh?" grunted Mr.
Wicklebridge. "Funny idea you
have of republican simplicity.
You'd get a rise out of the papers
in a minute. "Gorgeous Fete Cham
petre! White House Scene of Mon
archal Splendor.' Couldn't you
pull off something more simple?"
"Now, Cicero, that wasn't in my
thoughts at all. 1 never intended
anything more elaborate than a bal
poudre or some little function like
that."
"Didn't, eh? Woman, you would
crab my career at its zenith. Think
of the roar that would go up. 'Pres
ident's Wife Wheely over Old
World Magnificence! Revival of
Bourbon Pomp and Pageantry.
Common People Peeved at Un
patriotic Performance."
"Tush, Cicero Wicklebridge, you
have the perverted imagination of
an opium fiend. I"
"Never mind, madam. They'd
have the goods on you, all right.
'Tons of Empty Champagne Bot
tles! Mrs. Wicklebridge Seeks to
Obliterate Tell-Tale Marks of Ex
ecutive Mansion Orgy.' Oh, you'd
be up against It!"
"You insignificant idiot! I
wouldn't either, for the reason"- —-
"Well, I was just picturing what
a delicate position you'd be in if
you were to cm loose in the White
House."
" For the reason. I say, that
such an ossified old onion like you
is In no earthly dinger of ever be
ing president. There, now!"
Which held Mr. Wicklebridge for
a little bit of a while.
