Women tried to jump to the, street, but were restrained. Several were' overcome' by smoke, but were rescued by firemen and policemen. Two patrols of policemen hurried to 1119 S.

WRIGHT INSURES LIFE IN MAMAH'S FAVOR Spring Green, Wis., Jan 4. Frank Lloyd Wright, the gentleman who is afflicted with "hegirae," today applied for a $50,000 insurance policy of which Mamah Borthwick, his artmate, is to be the beneficiary. Wright says he recently provided for his wife in like manner, and that he considers his spiritual better half entitled to the same protection as he has given Mrs. Wright. "My wife and children are cared for. They will never be in want," said Wright. "Now I am thinking of this woman. The moment my right arm no longer protects her, she will be cast out into a pitiless, fickle world. Her position is different from that of any other woman in the world. 1 want her always to "be surrounded with comfort, and the artistic." Wright says his business has almost been ruined. But since the departure of the "war correspondents," as Wright calls the Chicago newspaper men, life has settled down into the ordinary routine in the village and at the "bliss bungalow...

immmmimmmmmmmmm I!. HUMOR By Berton Braley. ("The American Sense of Humor Is Less Pronounced Than in the Past" Quotation from an Editorial.) Oh, once we laughed and we lightly chaffed At the public crook and his ways of graft, And we roared with glee when we came to see Boodle and theft and bribery; But we've lost our sense of fun intense In "bitter jibes at our own expense, And when things aren't right in the public sight Instead of laughing we want to fight. We laughed, in time, at public crime, At the ugly Beast and his wake of slime, By robbers deft we ,were bereft And we laughed to think we had something left; So the laughter throbbed and the robbers robbed And we snickered to think how we were jobbed, And we grew quite red as we patted our head, And "Gee, but we're humorous folks," we said. But these things aren't "cute" somehow; Instead of laughter they start a row! And I'm glad that's flat that we've all said "scat" To a sense of humor as keen as that! SO THOUGHTFUL Illlffis...

Some men "swear off"' for six months or so and think they ought to get a laurel wreath. Sam and Will Muncy, twins, have gone ninctvthree years "without teching'a drap." "Liquor ain't good for a person" say these oldest prohibitionists. "We're still living and we're going to live many years more. "The boys wc went to school Will Muncy, with and took to drink afterward have been dead these many years. Ain't that the answer?". Neither have the twins, said to be the oldest in the United States, ever used tobacco in any form. The brothers have lived an outdoor life farming and fishing and are as rugged and hearty as men of 60. Their eyesight and hearing arc still good and they work daily on their farms.

Live each day as if the next is going to be your last; then you'll never wrong your fellow men. THE DAILY SHORT STORY When Stearns Awoke. Otto Stearns was knov.n to his associates as an unimpassioned, very self-contained orchestra director. Stearns was a wonderful musician, everyone said, although no one had known him to give any particular evidence of his powers. He conducted the orchestra at matinees and other times when the first director felt unable. or unwilling to assume the task. Weimert, a close friend of Stearns', was wont to declare that at heart the latter was fiery and impassioned that he would be the grandest director the world had ever seen if something would only happen to awaken him. No one else, however, held this belief. On a particularly hot. sultryafternoon, the orchestra was giving...

m mmmmmmmmmm confidence fairly drew from the wondering musicians the passionlate notes of the score. Stcarm had become another man. All that he formerly lacked, he now had, and Weimert as he playec' manfully, observed Stearns with the gloating eye of a victor. The number came to a magnificent, crashing close, that started thunders of applause from the meager audience. The day was won, Weimert saw as he glanced at the other city's representatives. There was no longer any doubt but that they would engage the orchestra. Then Weimert turned to the man beside him. "See." he said, as he started to place his instrument in its case. "See, I was right. 1 1 was a giri that one who has been hanging around here for some davs. She wrote a letter to Stearns some time ago, turning him down. Since then she has regretted that action. The letter Stearns looked at this afternoon was her old one. I. put two and two together and had her show herself at a door where Stearns could see her. He used to be a...

WmmvTVTrlmW9m9m9mmmmmBmmm THE PEOPLE OF TOLEDO, O., SET FINE EXAMPLE IN HANDLING STREET RAILWAY SITUATION The way the people of Toledo, O., are handling their tramway troubles is interesting in view of the present situation in Chicago. Under the authority of the city government of Toledo, the people of that city today are refusing to pay more than 3 cents carfare. The street railway company is insisting on 5 cents. The people are permitting the company to evict them from the cars, and then the city attorney of Toledo, is bringing suit on their behalf against the company. The Toledo situation goes back some years to a time when certain of v the street railway company's franchises expired. About the same time, the people had got on to the curves of the Democratic-Republican machine combination, which had been splitting up the spoils of the city for many years. Once on to this bi-partisan machine game, the people became -extremely busy. They formed a new party. It wasn't a Progressive ...

Also, the city council informed the people that should they re- . fuse to pay more than 3 cents, and be evicted from the cars of the company therefor, the 'legal services of City Attorney Schreiber were at their command. Mayor Whitlock signed this ordinance today, and there are merry doings in Toledo. The people heartily approve of the action of their city council, and are backing the fight for all they are worth. They refuse to, pay more than 3 cents. The street railway company employes wont take 3 cents, and put those who refuse to pay 5 cents, off the cars. Then the evicted ones hike to City Attorney Schreiber, and ask him to get busy. Meantime, the Big Con is howling bloody murder, and predicting loss of "big business" and everything else for Toledo except earthquakes. It threatens to discontinue service on those lines where franchises have expired. It threatens to go into a receivership. The peo...
