"The railroad service here is positively rotten," he moaned as he pao- , ed the station platform waiting for the tialn which was seven minutes , late. "Take it away from me," he glared as the waiter brought him a brand ot coffee unsuitable to his delicate tastes. , "This bed Isn't fit for a dog to lay in," he roared, as ho rolled over for the 40th time; in a hotel room that didn't qulto suit him. A year later the sun was blazing hot; his feet were blistered; his body wag worn and fatigued and hot fire seared his empty stomach.

For four days ai.d four nights he had staggeied, half lifeless, toward a mirage that mookf d and leered him from an incorporeal somewhere. Somehow he got back to "God's country." They brought him in, more dead than alive, and fed him mush, and watery cow's milk and dried beef. He ate ravenously, drank the poor mil'x in a gulp, scribbled a note with a faltering hand, and sank into a deep sleep on a blanket in a coiner. The world ii changed to him now. Ho smiles when the train faithfully puffs in somewhat behind scheduled time; ho adds an "if you please" to the telephone operator; he treats the waiter like a human being, and upends his nights sleeping on a porch swintr. The world has changed. )o you know him? Pavement Hoarders. Regardless f.f sex, age or physical capacity, the elbow sliovers and holders of first, second and last mortgages on public sidewalks make their presence known on crowded thoro-fares and themselves obnoxious wherever they go. They seem to have a propensity for picking out a time when the homegoer is carrying big bundles or for days when the ground on ether side of the walk is slo.ipy and wet. They waltz down the alleys and avenues and streets Tires replaced on all small wagons and baby carriages ; we retire them as g.iod as new.

The English department at Gouch-er colh-ge has declared war on the superfluous word. Hostilities began when Professor Annette D. Hopkins censured the use of "Listen," "Oh, say," and "Believe me." Believing th: the best way to begin a len ience is to tepln it, Professor Hopkins officially barred "by and large," "all things taken into consideration,"; "as a matter of. fact," "and it seems to me." Girls beginning a, study of journalism, were warned against an indiscriminate use of "awful," "wonderful." "precious," and "cute." Other expressions listed as taboo were: "Sustained a fracture," "The fair sex," "Viewpoint," "Wend one's way," and "The first lady in the land." All In a Day's Work.

Detectives todcy were trying to determine which nf two young runaway wives it was If either whoso dismembered body vAis found a week asro in a pond at Long Island City. This dilemma was brought about by claims of two sets of relatives, one of which firmly declared the mutilated body wus thai" of Mrs. .Mary Agnes Wagstaff, whil" the other, with equal firmness maintained it was that of Mrs. Dolly Pailey Higyins. The story leading up to the young woman's death was the same in either case. Mrs. Wiggins and Mrs, Wag-staff both had quit their husbands. Both had been met by chance and importuned to return home. Both had refuted, and both h:;d been reported later in the company of another man. Arnold A- Wagstaff, husband of one of the missing wives, identified the era LEVINSON BROTHERS, INC.

George Eernard Shaw, famous British author and playwright, who showed what he knows about boxing by picking Georges Carpentier of France as a BO to 1 favorite over Champion Jack Dempscy, doesn't even know that much about baseball. But he has nothing on Babe Ruth's lack of lore concerning Belles letters. When Tex Ricard, boxing promoter, learned Ruth was going into vaudeville for the winter, ha suggested it might be a good litttle piece of publicity to get Show's opinion on the saltifn of Swait. Accordingly, he sent a cablegram to the author of "Man and Superman" inquiring whether it would bo proper to bill Babe Ruth as "The Superman of Baseball." "Sorry never heard of her. Whose baby is Ruth?" Shaw cabled back- "Shaw?". Ruth is reported to have mused when he was apprised of the answer. "Shaw?" is that the boy that used to catch for St. Louis?" LOCAL GIRL MAKES HIT.
