T1 fD N CD ji SHACKLES OFF o Ttwy Hit tbo Pioneer Trail ' Forty-nine of , (Kinsas City SUr.) Miss Harriet IT Andrews, a Kan-as City teacher, and her sister and ber sifter's husband, tiring of the conventional: life they were living, decided To become pioneers. their "pioneering" took the form of a talking trip to California. "We just got tired of the everlast-iug tyrannyTQfthings, Of clothes to vutu money for and make and put ' on and wear; of meals to plan and I) ay and cook and eat; of houses to nav for and furnish and dust and i i O Q V (A n o , En 3 Ci clean; of street cars to catch and ap- and .sold or gaveawayjH -ot our (ointments to keep; of people to cajhUewehr BTjff most of our clothes.
