Frank "i-: 1 a (.lay's lisli-uk last week w ith endye of town he was met by the game warden and fish deputy. "Let mo see," said the warden. "Are any of them under six inches. "Fnder six inches!" replied Rore-pagh, properly in disgust. "Why, one measures twelve inches and a half but he got away." The warden held up one against his tape measure. "Five and a half!" he exclaimed triumphantly. "You are under arrest: " The next morning the warden produced the short trout in court and the judge looked sharply at Roropaugh. "This lish" said the judge. "Has shrunk," said Rorepaugh. "It was six inches when I caught it, for I measured it; but as it dried it grew shorter.' "But fish stories always grow longer." remarked the court. "It was six inches long, as the law-directs, your honor, and you can see ! how it has shrunk. I can't help a fish j drying up. I hope ymi don't think, I your honor, that I wutiid" 'clerk, bring me my copy of Isaali Walton," broke in the judge. Rorepaugh stood first on one foot and then on the other as the judge turned tho leaves. "Ah. here we have it." And his honor read with a scowling face: "'Concerning the length of fish usually caught in English brooks. I have observe.! that with each telling of the story they usually grow longer and I have known a trout which originally measured eight inches to measure eleven the third day after the fisherman hud originally told the story'" The judge looked up with an inquiring pause. "May it pi -ase the court to read on?" said Rorepaugh desperately. His honor did so, and as he read his face lightened: " 'This universal custom on the part of fishermen is most reprehensible, for as a matter of fact I have observed on sundry times, to my own chagrin, that fish that I had thought measured teii inches frequently shrunk as they dried to nine and a half and even less to my own confusion and to the merriment of my cronies.'" The court looked up from the book and said: "The prisonrr is discharged. When a fisherman teils the truth it Is contrary to the purpose of the law to dis-( ..was it. By the way, Rorepaugh, where did you catch those fish?" Tlorepiatigh told him and walked out wiU: his lish. South Austin race team will b-ne!it ball Friday.

MAN'S OWM SIGNATURE DEGLARED A FORGERY Pittsburg, Pa., May 11. Can a man forge liis own signature? Some time ago, Bryan Robertson, a rich iron broker of this city, and Kennedy Ewing, man about town, and also well fixed, were playing pool in the Ltuquesne club, when it was proposed that liftv points be played for a shie bet of $1000. Both men were agreeable, the game was played, and lost. A crowd had collected to watch the game, and in tho presence of the spectators sat down at a desk and wrote a check for $1000 payable at the Second National bank. Next day Robertson deposited the cheek. Soon afterward he was summoned to tile bank and told that Ihe check was a forgery. He said that that could not be possible, as Mr. E'.ving had signed it in his pre-en,---. But the cashier insisted and brought out the signature l.'ook and show -J Robertson that the signature in it was not at all like that on the check. Robertson then went to Kwing for an expla nation, but Ewing, it is said, treated the matter as a ioke. After waiting for some time for Ewing to make the check good, Robertson placed the case in the hands of John McCleave, one of the most prominent attorneys of the city. Neither of the principals nor the attorney will discuss tiie case, Mr. McCleave saying merely that he hopes it will be settled out of court. STAMP SOLD FOR $98.
