Nearing the end, humming or crooning and looking back admiring the expert job he had done a car rounded the race track arousing the thick and dormant dust It settled mostly on the new paint. If one doesn't know Jake, well, his music turned to talking, talking yet, and not of the polite variety.

Algnnium motoring in southern Minnesota came upon a filling station with a novel and truthful sign: "Our Business. Selling Gasoline and Collecting State Taxes." Dr. Wulruth sat at a ball game and became more fatigued than the players. The little daughter accompanied him. From the lap to a knee, from the knee to a should- er, from the seat to, every place except where she should be. And a multitude of questions to answer.

The typewriter became hot Vic scoured the office floor for a gadget of the funnel shaped kind used to let water slowly drip onto a grindstone. He thought by cooling the machine his fears of burning it up would pass and more work accomplished. * * * A fellow much disliking the color scheme of the fair association is out to change It with his own brush and paint. The tire pover on Bill thij flnt rn,.fcg. adorned. Other fair wHelals are doomed for a change. When yellow was used to an over abundance against the protests of a manager it was too much for him. Yellow for the fourth, yellow for the rodeo, yellow for the fair and auto races. Somebody is going to know how attractive other colors arc. • • • firo.
