Mr. Blinkinton's Great Scheme Would

Try This on the Judge.
Automobile speeders, caught in the
act and haled to court, certainly make
the most magnificent liars. Every one
of .hem invents new excuses, which
f ltially smashes some weii-known tra
dition. Can' you imacine a man who
liad stopped on th-- gas until it regis
tered 4) declaring that he did it for
cue purpose only, and that was to hur
ry to his mother-in-law's home? Court
attendants and spectators who beard
this nnnarried-man-like admission,
tripped the railing to keep from fall
ing. "That may sound funny, your
honor." explained the speeder, "but it
is true." And then he proceeded to
make a second admission only slightly
less startling than the first. "I helped
my wife dry the dishes, and that's
what delayed me." Of course, the
magistrate laughed right out, said
something about ideal stab of do
mosiioity and permitted the road
burner to get away with it. He was
told to go and speed no more.

medical people especially are looking
at it from the an?le -f health. The
statistics point to the fact that it was
a healthful winter. There was less of
sickness during the cold weather, and
immediately following it, than is usual

There were fewer epidemics and not
nearly so much sickness in general.
If tile statements of the Feiontists
could be summed up they would show
