KOTDIRtBIBLE MP Wisconsin's Mascot, on Shore Leave, Leaped and Alighted on a Frankfurter (By United Press.) NEW YORK, Oct. 4—Jim Jeff- Ties has got to leave the Wiscon sin; so if you know any one who can give a big gray "old man" kan garoo a good home, pieaae write the bos'n of that man of war be fore the fleet leaves the North tlver. Jack Atkins of No. 1 turret is the particular chum of Jim Jeffries, and hates to hear anything said against his queer looking pet: but even Jack said yesterday, when they took Jim ashore for an ailing that never again would he get Shore leave ontfJ he goes for good. Jim disgraced the navy. Jack Atkins and four of his mates gave up a chance of a run around town in Order to give Jim a sniff of the green tree* and grass at the foot of Dycknian street, where the cutler landed Jim and his escort. When the set him down just at the edge of the lawn Jim gave a ■couple of hops and sniffed al the fresh green grass. Suddenly his great, muscular hind legs heat down on the earth with a force that shot him upward as if driven by a huge steel spring. The sud den jerk threw the man o' war jacks off their even keels, and they were sprawling in a hurrah's nest In a second. Jim, with the loose lanyard trailing behind him like a necklace, lapped in a series of strong hops into the trees about the old house. Jim didn"t know much about the geography of Dyckman street, and therefore did not realize that, while the ascent to the house from the river is an easy slope, the hill is cut away above the street. Below the lip of the cliff was a frank furter dealer's camp, With a dozen tin kettles boiling merrily. So when Jim got near the edge of the cliff he gave a jump that carried him Well over the verge and landed him with a loud crash in the middle of one of tbe stands. No kangaroo ever lit on a frank furter stand before, so far as is known, and natural history should be Interested in hearing the results when Jim sat down in a tin kettle full of canine product and scalding sauerkraut. In falling Jim managed to smear himself liberally with mustard, so that he looked like a three sheet poster of a burlesque show as he bounded with fright ened squeaks up Dyckman street with a fringe of sauerkraut spat etred with mustard ornamenting bis thick tail.

LOWEST RATE ON STREET CARS Of all things aside from a hobo that reaches Sjwkane in a freight car, there is nothing that enjoys a lesser freight rate than that given the coast terminals, but street cars. Street cars—they are the luckiest of all shipable articles, and even at that Spokane has not enough of them. It is almost pathetic. This was brought out before the interstate commerce commission, hearing Spokane's rate case, in the new postoffice building this morn ing. Attorney H. M.

"This talk of the contractors hav ing gone into a combine with the | bonding companies on the 10 year I malnteance la all rot.
