We humbly suggest that the Society

the following two items are hardly
what we expect from a sheet of so
high a standard as the Times:

Lizette Woodworth Reese says that
the trouble with the “free verse" poets
is that they have no sense of humor.
While we are inclined to agree with
Sister Reese, we would go on to say
that there might be found other lacks
as well. Surely the lack of a sense
of humor is not all, for heaven knows
John Milton had no humor in his con

The last thing we expected to read
about was a collision between a ship
and a trolley car. But lo! here it
appears. The little encounter took
place on a swing bridge in Dublin,
when the ship got into too great a
hurry, and poked her masts into the
trolley car.

But then, the people of Dublin must
be used to almost anything now.

We found an extremely pretty little
sentiment stowed away in the dreary
pages of the official paper of the W.

could not refrain from clipping it and

Hard luck is a rather common pro
perty these days; but it seems that
some of us have a good deal more
than a fair share. When a man does
his level best, and is foiled by the
most trifling circumstance, so that
the whole course of his life is alte/ed,
we cannot but sympathize.
Take the case of Jim Smith, of
Charleston, West Virginia. He got
fed up with life, and decided that an
investigation of the Great Beyond
would prove more interesting than a
continued stay with us on this earth.
Jim was very determined about
the matter, and would permit hlrnself
no chance of failure. He betook
himself to the bridge over the Elk
River, to which bridge he fastened
one end of a rope. The other he put
securely about his own neck. Then
he poured gasoline over his clothes,
and set fire to himself at his feet.
Tn one hand he held a gun, while with
the other he fed himself antimony.
And then ! His foot slipped
off the rail. Over he went.Hls gun
went off, but it went over his head,
severing the rope. He dropped into
the river like a shooting star, as pic
turesquely as Lucifer falling from
Heaven. But, somewhat less pictur
esquely, he landed in the icy water,
which not only extinguished his bla
zing garments, but made him very
sick as well, from the shock. He then
got rid of all the antimony he had so
carefully swallowed, and swam ashore
a wetter and a wiser men.

A contemporary says that the true
test of an Easterner is that he always
speaks of the Northwestern Universi
ty, and Ann Harbor. We desire to
go on record as absolutely disagree
ing with this writer. We have never
yet found a dudo who spoke of either
place Incorrectly.
We do not wish to appear as ad
vocate for the dudes, but there Is no
need to foist off on them the sins
they do not commit. Heaven knows
they do enough things without our
adding to the list from our fertile and
jovial imaginations.

Mrs. Thomas Taylor asked her fond
hubby for money. It seems that she
asked him on the street. Now this
same fond hubby Is a member of the
New Orleans police force. He arres
ted his wife on a charge of assault
and battery, disturbing the peace, und
using obscene language.
It is just as well, no doubt, that Mrs.
Taylor merely asked for the money,
and did not demand it!

According to a dispatch from Lon

1922 is destined to shake the world to
Its foundation, both physically and po

rioting and revolution." Gosh, looks

Found 100 Sapphires in Craw
of Fowls—-Has Made
Many Good Finds
John Leppart, a cook at the Jordan
Hotel in Glendive, Montana, made an
important discovery some time since
and has made considerable extra
spending money as a result of it.
Being of an inquiring turn of mind
he took to examining the contents of
the gizzards in the chickens he dres
sed and found that a Montana hen
was quite as apt to pick up a Montana
sapphire as any other pebble, so now
he never throws it away without
thoroughly washing out the stones
and separating those which appear to
have value from the others.
During the past two years he has
acquired more than 100 sapphires
from the gizzards of chickens sold
to him by farmers of Dawson county.
These stones range in size from
one quarter to one and one-half car
ats and are white, yellow and blue in
color. After the chef has the stones
cut and polished, he sells them to
his friends and acquaintances. Usu
ally he has a lai ger demand than he
can supply.
