REPULSES THE ENEMY
One of the business men of the
city who in the days before the war
was engaged in the disposition of
more than Famo and Pablo, had an
experience a few days ago that will
long linger in his recollection and
his opinion of the fair sex as war
riors has greatly risen since his en
counter with thffone in question.
It seems that this family was about
to depart from the city and among
other things that, they had were sev
eral cases of empty bottles that had
once contained more than 2.75 per
cent of joy water and the owner of
the bottles desired to have them re
turned so that he might receive cred
it upon them from the wholesaler.
To secure the bottles the services of
Chief Manspeaker was secured and
the businessman and the chief has
tened to the depot where the family
were departing. In the melee that
ensued the law escaped without in-
Jury but the full fury of the enemy
barrage and counter attack fell on
the unlucky business man and he
was severely shaken by the infuriat-
