Judge the Panhandled a Parson. The Rev. F. E. Higgings, the 'luinerjack sky pilot^-was-com- ing down the street yesterday when a party of four woodsmen all more or less in corn spid him. "Let's panhandle him" said one.! "Naw" rejoined a companion "he wont dig up." Higgins knew the men. He had met them in theGoff camps and he gave them all a hearty handsake. Finally one bolder than the others informed him that they were broke and asked him to f'square it for a feed." The party were taken to the Remore hotel and the clerk was ordered to give them their dinner. Mr. Higgins left the hotel. One of the men took din ner and the other three roasted him because he didn't give them money to buy whisky and went away without eating. Some peo ple are never satisfied. Cold Cars.
