Too Many For The Boss One of the bosses at Locomotive Works had to lay off an argumentative Irishman named Pat, so he saved discussion by putting the discharge in writing. The next day Pat was missing but a week later the boss was passing through the shop and he saw him again at his lathe. Going up to the Irishman, he demanded fiercely: "Didn't you get my letter?" "Yis, sur, Oi did," said Pat.

"Did you read it?" "Sure, sur, Oi read it and Oil read it outside," said Pat, "'and on the inside yez said I was fired, and on the outside yez said, 'Return to Baldwin's Locomotive Works in five days'." -L. R. B. in Lippincott's. -Central Christian Advocate.

The Ford The Ford is my auto; I shall not want. It maketh me to lie in muddy roads; it leadth me into much trouble. It draweth on my purse; I go into the paths of debt for its sake. Yea, though I understand my Ford perfectly, I fear much evil. for the radius rods of the axle might break.

It has a blow -out in the presence of mine enemies. I annoint the tire with a patch; the radiator boileth over. Surely this thing will not follow me all the days of my life, or I shall dwell in the house of poverty forever. Equip your Ford with one of the new Cuckoo clocks.

Citizens Become Enraged Over Many of the Utterances of the Speaker and the Street Fight Followed. Pratt. June 6.

-William H. Madison, the Socialist organizer for Kansas and candidate for state senator from Sedgwick County on the Socialist ticket, was egged and mobbed here last night in a demonstration from citizens who were indignant at his actions and words for the past two weeks. Mr. Madison has been giving lectures in the Bays' Building and was refused the use of this building. Later he secured the use of the Phoenix Theater, but was later refused the use of that building by the owners.

He then went to speaking on the streets and made the city intense with excitement when he denounced several of the citizens in the bitterest of terms and declared that the county was run by five of the most contemptible wretches that ever lived. Later he began to abuse several of his hearers. Last night he appeared on the street to make his talk and found his dry goods box gone. He secured a wagon and started for the place of the meeting. Boys got hold of the wagon and took Mr.

Madison a joy ride and failed to stop when the scene of the meeting was reached, but rushed on down the street toward the Santa Fe depot. Judge C. S. Swartz of the District court granted a permanent injunction in the case of Berry vs the members of the school board of District No. 5, wednesday.

The opinion was based on the belief that it required a 2-3 majority to locate a site, the same as to change the site. This means that the high school can not remain fully accredited so as to participate in the county funds, because the requirements can not be met under the present circumstances, and that two or three rooms will have to be quartered out in such buildings as can be procured for them. The delay in case of an appeal will probably be a year and a half and as it is doubtful if a 2-3 majority could be secured for any site we feel that our chances for a school house that will provide room and shelter for our children are very vague and indefinite. Obituary When some distance below the meeting place Mr. Madison from the wagon, and demanded the possession of the wagon, which was given him.

He turned his revolver over to Mr. Christopher, a Socialist of this city, and later the gun was turned over to the city marshal. The wagon was then brought back and the speaking began. The crowd had become enraged over the actions and the words which they declared he had given them during the joy ride and soon after the speech began he was halted by shouting which closed the speech. He waited awhile and then declared that he would put the city under martial law if the shouting was not stopped.

The shouting grew more tense. THEN A FIGHT BROKE OUT Mr. Madison and Mr. Christopher then started to leave the wagon and as he stepped down he said things to the crowd standing near and to those who had not taken any part in the demonstration against him. When his words were heard several pushed forward demanding an apology.

Getting none the speaker was struck. A fight ensued in which several harvest hands which were favorable toward the Socialists and Mr. Madison took part and several of the Pratt boys were quite badly beaten before the trouble could be stopped. Mr. Madison then took refuge in the Oxford Cafe and asked for a towel to remove the blood.

He was cut on the arm and wrist and badly battered. A committee of the business men of Pratt asked him to leave the city until the feeling died down. JUMPED OUT OF THE WAGON. Gladys Elita Starns was born near Noel, Missouri, June 28th, 1898, and died June 3rd, 1914, aged 15 years 11 months 5 days. At the age of 5 she removed with her parents, Mr.

and Mrs. W. D. Starns, to Dexter, Kansas, where she lived till the time of her death. A few years ago she united with the Baptist church at Dexter, and was an active worker in the Sunday school and church functions.

She had just finished the work of the 8th grade in the Dexter schools, where she was a bright and willing worker, and while her place in her home can never be filled, yet there is some consolation in the thought that she has gone to her reward in the Heavenly Kingdom without having to endure the trials, temptations and disappointments of this earthly life. 0.
