DOES ANY ONE WANT "JUDGIE"
OR "BABYKINS," OR BOTH? Just a couple of little waifs. That's all they are. Their big round eyes look won derlngly out into the world as though they were trying .to figure out what it all meant, and there is a rather quizzical twist to their lit tle faces as though they were not quite sure that they were figuring it out right. They were a couple of little brothers who Were left at the Or phan's Home of Spokane last night, and their story is a sad one, but they are not worrying anything about that, "nudgle," the oldest one, he's not quite 3, is more busy trying to figure out where all the #•> r little brothers and sisters, nnd the new mama's he's got, came from than he is fretting about what a tragic little life story his Is, while "Habykins"—"Babykins" is the lit tlest one, he's only 9 months old— finds more fun in trying to get his tiny pink toe to connect with his mouth than he does in pondering on the ways of the world. Not so long ago these two tiny youngsters had a mama and papa, that is, a "really" mama and papa. In fct. they've got them now, only they might better not have, for their papa is a hopeless paralytic and their mama—their mama has run away and left them; gone with a man who Is not paralyzed, and who can cater more to her love of the good things of the world than can the crippled man whom she swore to love, honor and obey, through sickness and death, for bet ter and for worse.

EVER WATCH A WINDOW TRIMMER? Have you ever watched a window trimmer in one of the Riverside or Main avenue stores? For one thing window trimming is a magnificent tax upon one's ingenuitive powers, new displays continually, year in and year out, month after month, with holidays and special occasions thrown in lavishly for good meas ure. This art of window trimming calls for even more qualities than you probably Imagine. Primarily, fo course, it calls for that divine gift, an artistic sense of the fitness of things, an appreciation of the value and balance of color, and of the proper balance as regards dis tribution of bulk. Balance as re gards both color and bulk is of prime importance. A yellow and a pink do not look well side by side, neither does a purple and green under ordinary circumstances. A fine distinction for effective, but not daring contrast is all essential. SHORTWEIGHT POTATO SWINDLE ABATES SOME The wholesale short-weight po tato swindle that was operated j here for weeks has abated to some extent. It got to be such a good thing that one commission firm re-' tamed a force of night help to rip up and cut down the size of sacks and resew them for use in the short-weight potato industry. As many as five piling wagon toadl of these potatoes were sent OHt by this firm through the hands of peddlers every morning, and the potatoes were sold at a small dis count, while from 16 to 33 1-3 per : cent short in weight. Complaints came in so fast that City Inspector of Weights and .Measures Schultz was almost On the verge of distraction. The only way that lie could relieve the situ ation, he says, was to arrest the man who sold the potatoes and not If you have any trouble with your lights, range, water heater, or any part of our service, notify us, and we will satisfy you.

DON'T FORGET THE NUMBER. 235 Riverside Aye. ORIENTAL BAZAR Distribution of bulk comes next in importance, and in this are includ ed sense of proper spacing and pro portion, height of display and shape of individual pieces. Little personal touches here and there make a window a success or a fail ure. A patting down of a ruffle here, a deft straightening of a skirt fold there, all these minor appar ent trivialities are of primary im portance in producing an artistic and attractive picture. A good window trimmer takes as much delight in his art as does the artist. Modern advertising methods take large account of the advan tages of show window space, and the trade of window dresser is al ways open for first class men. Tak en all in all, if one enjoys it —as one must if he is an artistic work man—lt is a most pleasing and pleasureable occupation, but al ways there must be that individual artistic essence present, or the work will spell failure. the man who put them out. Neither the state laws nor the city ordinances define the weight of a sack of potatoes. A sack, however, in commercial pursuits is taken to mean 100 pounds, and any thing less than that is short weight. The only way that an arrest can be made is to have the party buy ing the potatoes have the peddler say that he is giving 100 pounds per sack. When the peddler said this and he gave less he laid him self liable to prosecution. A few arrests have been made. ROYAL NEIGHBORS MEET TO MORROW AFTERNOON.
