CHICAGO, April 11.--The spirit of Lord Carnarvon, late discovurer of King Tut-Ankh-Amen's tomb, is trying to get back to earth to clear up the mystery about his death, spiritualists at the Illinois state convention declared here today. "The lord is undoubtedly trying desperately to tell whether an insect bite, curse or something else killed him," said Rev. Mrs. M. B. Dermondy. "Tftis far he has not been able to get a ground connection. "All this hullaballoo is very distasteful to him." Spiritualists · also disclosed that there is prohibition in spiritland.

Rare old Wines and bonded liquors were reported to have been involved in the deal. "The most dangerous tendency of the nation today is the tendency of high class persons, men of wealth, means, reputation and supposed standing, to violate the prohibition laws," Judge Wilkerson said, after declaring he was "amazed" at th6 array of petty offenders brought before the courts while the big violators go free.

The "Honeymoon ers" By Fay Stevenson Copyright Keeping Up With Society. "Where are you going tonight?" asked Evelyn as she saw her husband calmly taking out his evening clothes and putting the studs in his best Bilk shirt. "To the club, of course. I have a very important dinner engagement with Vanderwig." "Ob, I'm so sorry." sighed Evelyn. "I made a chocolate layer cake for you today and it's the best one I ever baked. It hardly seems as if we ever have an evening together any more since you've joined that old club." A slight frown played about Willow's temples. , "Just remember that most of the chaps I meet at the club are your friends," be reminded her. "Didn't we both decide that the friendship of these men would mean much to me?" "About the only thing it seems to mean is to separate us.', "Oh, well, never mind, sweetheart," said Willows, coming over .to his wife and kissing her tenderly, "I'll be home it little after nine or so. Probably Vanderwig is going to the opera or a reception later. Depend upon it, he's far too busy a man to waste an entire evening with me." "Oh, don't worry about getting back," declared Evelyn. "Stay as long as you please. Clarice Burton and I have a date for this evening. We'fo going to the coming-out party of Viola Blltuiore. If you should decide to go about with Vanderwig it wouldn't worr me, for I probably will-not-bo home until very late." Again the frown worked thru the usually smooth brow of Stanley Willows. "That's all, we're always on the go," he complained.'This keeping up with society is getting to be quite a bore. You're just going out as I'm coming in or vice versa. We hardly see each other a moment." There was an impetuous ring at the phone. Evelyn hastened to answer it. "Yes, this is Mrs. Stanley ,Willo*s. What, will we be free to dine with you Thursday evening? Indeed, we Will, Mrs. Vauderloom. Thank you. BO much. Goodby." "Another tie-up for us?" asked Willows. Evelyn's face was flushed and her eyes sparkled. "But this Is a dinner engagement I with the Vanderlooms. darling, the ; very exclusive Vanderlooins. Of course we'll go. After all. Stanley dear, If you keep in touch with these big men Of tho city, before 'ong you'll laud a wonderful position." | "Or else I'll laud In Jail for debt." , laughed her husband as ho picked up bis crush hat and kissed her goudby. "Just remember we won't see each other until tomorrow morning over the percolator," he reminded her. "1 can't quite say I enjoy spending my honeymoon this way." | "Nor I," confessed Evelyn. "But If I it leads to a better position for you It might bo worth while." "Oh, I suppose* so." admitted Willows, "but life seems to be one chase after another and I don't see that H makes BO much difference whether YOU bant-on a subway strap and eat round steak or grasp your taxi cushions and dine upon lobster. I'd rather spend an evening with you in our Bronx apartment than one with old Vanderwig orer club table loaded with indigestible food." But Evelyn did not feel Just this way about society. She had been born and leared In It. and later t h n t evening when she and Clarice i.unou stood bCKldo a stately matron nml helped her receive the guests for her daughter's romlnK-out party she felt at homo and In her own sphere.
