Monday, July 31,1916. THE FORT WAYNE SENTINEL. Seven* GAY COLORS FOE BEACH. By Betty Brown. Where's the navy blue bathing suit and the bathing suit iu black we used to think pretty? Wafted away to the port of forgotten fashions, perhaps. And this season only the most brilliant colors are seen on tho beach. Here's a simple model, but its colors are daring--and glaring. The one-piece gown gathered full at the empire waist is green taffeta! the color is old rose. The immense pocket, tiny sleeves and lapel are faced with rose. The buttons are black. The rose colored cap is trimmed with black silk The surplice waist is so simple the amateur seamstress will find it easy to copy, a id it's no great trick to make the gathered skirt with ruffled bottom. II TAKE POLICE COURT ject of the note w as "Dear Judge, weeds arc cut." Most of the Time Monday Was Taken Up With Jangles Over Weeds. Weeds, the outlaws of the botanical kingdom, were again the cause for the array of respected citizens who mingled with the docketed, social misfits in police court Monday. Twenty-eight weed cases were taken up. Nobody has been fined as yet. Since the first list of affidavits against those who "tolerate rank vegetation on tueir premises" were served last Saturday, Judge Kerr has heard little besides "weed talk," the city attorney has given his time to discussing weeds, police have conversed over the telephone for hours about the noxious plants and severa workmen have been nearly prostrated by the heat in cutting weeds. Five citizens of the twenty reporte ..last Saturday are supposed to be finei because they have not reported that weeds have been cut on their lots since the warrant was read to them. Who are the five? The court is not sure. Several people telephoned to police that they had slaughtered all weeds on their property and police are not sure of the names. An investigation will be made and the city attorney will ask that the five delinquent citizens be fined it he learns that they have not performed their obligations yet. Eight new affidavits were introduced Monday morning. Most of the people concerned say that their weeds were cut Saturday. Peter Hamilton, 3018 Hanna street, who owns nine lots and who has lived on his property for 50 years was one of the men to appear Monday morning. "I have no weeds on my lota I am raising a crop of the finest potatoes in town on my \acant properties. Whoever reported me does not know weeds from potatoes," Hamilton told the couit. Hamilton and his wife spend much ot their time hoeing their patches of potatoes, of which they are very proud, and weeds are their worst enemies. The case against Hamilton was dismissed. "Police say that names of people whr are dead and have been dead severa' years have been turned in over the tele phone as being property owners who ari. allowing weeds to grow. Nicholas Happ, who owns property 01 Winter street and which he rents out objected to having to cut his weeds. H argued that his renter should be made t cut them. The court ordeied him to set that the weeds were cut before Tues day. Several times while court was in ses Bion Judge Kerr would be interrupted bj notes delivered to his desk by boys. Ker opened envelope after envelope. He al ways smiled as he ordered proceedings t go on. The smile meant that the sub Atlanta, Ga., July 31.--Thomas Edgar Stripling, who, under an assumed name, acted as chief of police of Dam ille, Va., while a fugitive from justice fiom Geoigia on a muider charge, has been pardoned by Gov. Harris after serving five years of a life sentence in the state penitentiary. Broken in health, he will pom his family, which has lived near the piison farm at Miliedgeulle since he was sent there. His case atti acted considerable attention about a year ago when his young daughter appealed to the governor for pardon. Stiiplmg shot Bill Cornett in Harris county, Ueoigia, nineteen years ago, claiming Coinctt had insulted his wife and sister. While awaiting trial he escaped, was joined by his wife and after a number of years went to Danville with his fajnily. There he was elected chief of police and was considered an excellent official. He went under the name of R. E. Morris. On the day when the municipal council was to re-elect him his identity was discovered and he was taken back to Icorgia. WATCH YOUR TREES!
