HERE are two values to every purchase
what it costs and what it pays you. Cork
costs 8 cents a pound hut if you are drown
ing half a mile from shore, its value would
be "not what you pay for cork, but what cork saves
you." When a woman buys soaps she often con
fuses the two values. She sees only what she pays.
She overlooks what she receives. Now a single
cake of Ivory Soap pays back from ten to twenty
times its cost in the saving it effects. Test it your

GUEST IS AN APPARENT
VICTIM OF INGRATITUDE
The domicile of a, teamster named
Evans on lower Second avenue Sat
urday nipht was the scene of a ruc
tion in which F. M. Webb, a guest,
pot the worst of it. 'Webb, who has
been staying at Evans", left there
recently and Saturday evening went
back for his things. A 'growler"
was brought into play and all went
merrily -as long as Webb furnished
the amber liquid. I$y and by, how
ever, the question of more lx'er led
to it difference of opinion and after
a short arpuuient Mr. and Mrs. .Evans
threw Mr. Webb out onto the hard
sidewalk. The guest naturally ob
jected to the treatment and came
back in front of the screen door to
remonstrate. The host picked up a
coal shovel and whaled away
through the door catching the party
on the outside on the chin and put
ting him out of the business. No
arrests were made.

pital. Boyish recklessness yesterday lid
Edward Meenan. son of Mr. and Mrs.
Frank Meenan, 2702 Eighth avenue, to
attempt a feat that sent him .to the
hospital with both bones of his left
ankle badly fractured.
Edward, who is 14 years of ape,
was playing with a number of other
boys about the waterworks at the
foot of Twenty-fourth street.
Tied tt the shore in the loj runway
north of the waterworks was an
empty barge,, and the boys fell to
bantering each other to jump from
the bank which is formed of rat
tlings and is 10 or 12 feet high, down
to the deck of the barge.
Young Meenan was dared to try it,
and finally one of the boys bet him
a nickel that he was afraid. The
money was put up and the lad pre
pared to make the leap. The cither
boys became alarmed and tried to
t..ssuade him, but he declared he
would jump if it killed him, and
jump he did.
Companion Summon Hrlp.
When he was unable to rise the
other boys hurried to the water
works for help and a couple of the
men there carried the injured lad
into the building. From there he
was taken first to his home ami
thence to St. Anthony's hospital in
the ambulance, where Dr. DcSilva
reduced the fracture.
