"So I -went to the manager and told him I thought I could be of benefit', and that was my first assignment. "It is a thrilling experience for one of my temperament, -But I wouldn't recommend it to .any young girl, as courage, poise «and considerable strength is required. "You never know what might happen to you. Once I received a broken rib and a severely scratched face from a beautifully gowned woman, a merchant's wife, who stole a box of handkerchiefs. She bit and scratched and shrieked until- we calmed her. Her husband came right over and explained that she was kleptomaniac—she stole things without really knowing why— and of course the store refused to prosecute. "My job it to pose as a shopper I browse through the counters, and stroll from one department to another, occasionally making 'purchases,' examining various items of merchandise. But actually I am eyeing the customers. I watch them closely and when one is observed secreting some object in her coat or *ppeketbook I stay right behind her until she is out of the store. Then I seize her and yell for assistance. "We never accost them inside the store. If we did that the store would become liable to a suit. If you find anything on a person in a store they can simply say they wfire" examining it with ia view to purchase, and they get away with it. But if you catch;them with merchandise af|er'.$hey leave the store, and vffl;$?]ti6:'purchase sUp ; /,lp; identiryi'the article, they Iwre tid alibi. "Iti would amaze you to know the names of prominent people who haye been caught in department store theft?., It is a widespread mania. TMerfc af e cases in our records of - tfeajly. distinguished women who: can not resist the chance to'obtain some insignificant item for nothing. We know who these people are and watch them closely. One man, a lawyer and a Funeral services for Mrs. Hannah Benson', who passed away at her home at 412i/ 2 North Lewis street early Wednesday morning, were held Saturday at 2 p. m. at Dorrell chapel. A .service of music was sung by Mrs. Herbert Carlson and words of comfort were .spoken by Rev. J. A. Landin, pastor of Emanuel Lutheran church. Pallbearers were Henning Benson, Edwin Benson, Hilding Swanson, Tony Johnson, Roy Brown and Arthur Swanson.

She has: a bank account of her own. But from time to time the desire to steal assails her and she is werlBsrifo resist." If 1s " really a distressing case. "This week our store—the big one near Herald Square—made five arrests. They aren't really arrests. We just talk to them and take their names and warn them not to try it again.

The Jacktown entertainers drew a large crowd Friday afternoon as they gave their entertainment in Community hall instead of on the platform, because of the rain. They were exceptionally fine and it is regretted that the entire group could not have heard them. The parade on Saturday proved very satisfactory, although several schools who had planned to enter floats were unable to do so and the rain did injure several of the others. But everyone showed splendid spirit and went to work to re-arrange the floats and make them attractive. Scottville school band headed the procession playing spirited music as they went along. Line of Floats LaSalle school headed the line of floats with a clever Indian float, showing LaSalle smoking the pipe of peace with the Indians, all in life-like costumes, seated in front of the tepee. St. Mary's school had a most timely float, it was headed by a group of girls bearing the banner, "America Wants Peace." On the float were shown boys in khaki, bearing guns and other weapons, all in a huddle on the ground. Above them stood Uncle Sam and at his side a young lady in white costume, wearing a crown With the word Peace and H, F.

Chambers school had a significant Health float, bearing slogans for Health and bright, happy childhen seated about on the float. East Riverton had a patriotic float, a group of children dressed in the national colors wearing high hats and seated on chairs decorated in the same way. This group formed a rhythm band, with piano leading them and one of the little folks as band leader. Playground Float Locke school float was also very delightful as it played up the pleasures of childhood, it represented a well-equipped playground with swings and other means of amusement. A group of students followed, bearing other articles for play, such as ball and bat, tennis racquet and other articles. Dewey school featured harvest scenes with especially the pumpkin in evidence. Children in clever costume carried out the thought, the slogan being "Peter, Peter Pumpkin Eater," as in the story. Lincoln Valley also played up children's stories as they showed "Jack and Jill." A real hill was formed with trees along the sides. Jack and Jill traveled up the hill and fell down again a number of times on the line of march, bringing much applause. Wiley's float had a big appeal for the times, it showed a forest scene in the fall, with trees, a stump and colored leaves as the background. Leaning against the stump were two hunters, asleep, while around them- were squirrels rabbits and birds, enjoying themselves, and even a deer showed himself in among the trees. The float was one of the most pleasing. shown in a long time, the clever humor being one pleasing feature. Victory Corners had an attrac- dlans being their guests and the table bearing those foods that were known at that time. A nice background of trees added to the ihtefest. Amber Station showed the Amber Forestry club at work. The float showed the woods growing and green, then on the other side, a bare space, where club boys were planting trees. A woodsman cutting down a tree gave the other side of the story, while a pretty stream trailing under the trees was a feature. North Amber float was also most timely as it showed "Safety First." Everyone 'Who' saw the float recognized its real value. It showed two chairs, which were placed one on the other, the card bearing the words "a pdOr ladder." Knives, matches and other household articles bore the words, "poor playthings." The thought was further carried out by a bicycle, broken seeps and other articles. Ford Lake had their very clever band in line, the members in their regalia of blue capes and caps, and playing as they went along.
