FAIR CO-EDS HAD HARROWING ESCAPE Profiting not by the story of Fatlma whose trouble with Blue Beard were duo to a woman's curiosity two high school misses last evenlg attempted to pry Into the deep mysteries of the Lamba Sigma fraternity -whose mem bers were holding a meetlnir t th Thomas Thompson home on Water street. The young ladies escaped with their lives. The girls had attended a sorority meeting. When returning to their h6mes they heard the rattle of thn skeletons at the Lamba Sigma gather- ing, and seeing the dim light determ ined to get a glimpse at the myster ies of the mystic brotherhood jrath- ered within. They Invaded the yard of the inompson home. They neened at th windows and peeped at the keyhole. It was at this Juncture that the boys within discovered their visitors and throwing open the door they rushed out to welcome them. But the visitors were not there. They were flying down the street as fast as skirts would allow them. The boys gave chase, captured one In the yard of the Alexander home and the other Just before she plunged into the icy waters of the Umatilla river in which she sought MUccor. The girls were brought back! The nign court was convened ami the ury impaneled and despite the plead- r.gs of the fair ones they were found guilty and Judgment was passed. It having appeared to the court." the deep bass voice of the presiding udge thundered terrors Into the hearts of the fair culprits "that the defendants herein are guilty of the crime cf curiosity It Is herebv ad- udged that the bath tub be filled with Ice cold water and that the de fendants each and severally bo con ducted thereto and inducted and ducked therein, said defendants each nd severally to he given two wooden toothpicks wherewith to effect their rescue. And it is further ordered and djudged that while said defendants re endeavoring to escape from their said predicament they and each of them shall sing "Pull for the Shore" nd "Throw Out the Life Line." "Let the bath tub be filled." "Lead on, Oh! Executioner." Then the fraternity boys all retired nto the house, leaving the culprits In charge of Tracy Baker as guard. But the gallant captain of the foot ball team had mercy upon the fair maidens and he allowed them to es cape, thereby rendering it unneces sary for the penalty to be Imposed.

They were telling how well they could shoot, and Tom Dawson recall ed a duck hunt in which he had brought down five birds with one shot "Talk about shootin' " began Old Man Tllford, "I saw Jim Ferris do mighty neat piece of work one day rest week. His wife was puttin' out the washln' and she was complalnin' about the pesky sparrows makin' dirt marks on the damp clothes with their feet. ' 'They're thick as bees 'round here,' she says. 'There's seven of 'em sittln on the clothes-line this blessed min ute.' 'I'll fix 'em,' says Jim, takln' down his shotgun, which he alius keeDB oaded with fine blrdshot. He tip toed t othe door, took aim. and "Killed every one of them spar rows," broke In Dawson. You're wrong." corrected Tllford, calmly; "he never teched 'em, but when his wife took In the washln' she found she had three pair of open work stockln's and a fine peek-a-boo shirt waist." Wrong End Fp. Reginald Vanderbllt, at a horse show supper where hothouse straw berries figured dn the dessert, told a strawberry story. "One of these dealers In. rare fruit," he began, "snld one morning, at the height of the hothouse strawberry season : " 'Good gracious. I am ruined.' " 'How tan that he?' asked the man's cashier. The crop was excel- rnt and the prices are unusually high.' 'Yes, hut,' said the dealer, 'you know how careful I was to have the bottoms of my boxes built close to the top?' " 'Yes.' " 'And Just as the crop was ready gather the head nurseryman got drunk and I had to engage a new one?' " 'Yes.' " 'Well, that new man went and filled the boxes wrong end up.' " -Selected.

Rose has given to the world a discovery which can not fail to be a great boon to all downtrodden wives. He calls it "the sleep cure," and it consists in, sneak ing In when hubby is asleep and talk ing to his subconscious self.' In this way tne liev. Mr, Rose declares, a woman of his acquaintance cured her husband of a bad case of going-to-the- club. "Tomorrow night," this neglected wife whispered into his subconscious ear, "you will not go to the club to drink and carouse, but you will spend the evening with me." The head of the family thus taken advantage of has completely forgotten his club and its annual dues, and now they have to send for a blacksmith to pry him loose from his home. Ac cording to the Newark gentleman this is only one of numerous cases where people have been reformed against their better Judgment. It's all very well for the wife, but what of the rent-payer and provider of material blessings? Has he no rights which his own family is bound to respect? Somewhere a Judge has decreed that a wife is Justified in rifling her husband's pockets for small change. Is she also to be allowed to take away his inalienable right to make a fool of himself? Good nature Is as contagious as the measles. Put on your best smile when you get up in the morning and observe how everybody will greet you with a sunny face. . TIki Ixvet Ternw. ' (From "Succees Magazine.") A man purchased some red flannel shirts, guaranteed neither to shrink nor fade. He reminded the clerk forcibly of that guaranty some weeks later.
