ST. LOUIS, Mo. Mortimer Courtney,

forty-throo years old, into tho city on
a shopping nnd pleasure trip. After
they had bought theater tickets Court

There, to tho great surprise of Mrs.
Courtney, her husband selected and
paid for $575 worth of diamonds and
made her a present of them. Then
ho took her to another Jewelry shop
and bought additional costly trinkets
for her. As they wero leaving tho
second shop he turned to the aston
ished Mrs. Courtney and said:
"Now, my dear, I am going to give
you a real present. I am going to buy
you a $3,000 automobile."
Instead of Joyfully accompanying
her husband to an automobile estab
lishment Mrs. Courtney told him:
"Not Just now, Mortimer; you come
with mo. I have a person In mind
whom I wish you to meet."
The person Mrs. Courtney hnd In
mind was tho policeman nt Sixth and

what the lawyers call the casus belli
between two women In municipal
court tho other day.
Judga Levlno, who was trying to
straighten out the tangle involving
Mrs. Florence Haydon and Miss Pau
line Plckrul, was doing fairly well un
til he ran afoul of tho Jelly.
The plaintiff, Miss Plckrul, estab
lished that Mrs. Hayden owed her $9
for labor in the kitchen. It looked as
simple as A, B, C up to that point
until Miss PIckul said: "Sho owes
mo $H.S0 for making her nineteen
cups of Jelly." H jj
Mrs. Hayden admitted that tho
Jolly had been made, "but mercy,
what Jelly It was!"
In Just seven seconds tho Judge
was fathoms deep beneath a tidal
wavo of culinary terms.
Placidly, almost as If In a brown
study, Judgo Levlno listened. Maybe
his mind went back to King Solomon
who had considerable roputo In his
day for adjusting disputes between
Finally, there enme a rift In the
verbal ttorm and tho Judge adroitly
slipped in n couple of words.
"Bring the Jelly to me." a smile of
anticipation was on his face, "and if
It measures up to tho standards
established by my mother I will buy
It at 15 cents a glass."
This suited tho plaintiff, although
It was a reduction of 5 cents a glass
from her demand
Mrs. Hayden considered tho propo
sition for a few seconds, weakened

demanded by her former hired girl.
