"I don't know," said the doctor. "I
was more Interested in tho man, and

party and Invited 75 children.
Cobb Shlnn was In St Louis at tho
time, and was asked to help entertain
the youngsters by drawing pictures on
the largo paper hats which were given
to each child. He would draw "what
ever the children asked for, and the
subjects wcro many and various.
Finally a five-year-old handed up bis
hat and said:
"I want n pig."
Tho drawing was started, when a
brother about a year older, spoke up :
"Awl he don't want a picture of a
pig" und tho argument was on.
When the drawing was finished, tho
flve-yenr-old stuck out his chest and
"Sec, I got what I wanted I"
"Yes, but Just wait until I get you

Trained to leap through hoops and
stand unhitched, thousands of genuine
Mexican jumping beans are awaiting
girls of the United States who will
write a little letter of cheer to a dis
abled soldier. The exchange of letters
for jumping beans is being made

Five thousand sick nnd wounded
veterans of the World wnr, recuperat
ing In hospitnls In New Mexico, have

are .terribly lonesome, Mr. Baca writes,
and they will send a benn to every
girl who will write a letter to them.
Tho Jumping beans are dark brown,
somowhat larger than the ordlnnry
bean. Tho animation of tho vegetnblo
Is caused by a tiny worm tlint crawls
into tho benn nnd consumes tho edible
portion. After tho worm Is dead, tho
benn keeps on Jumping.

TRIES TO TRACE ARMY SLANG

"Out of Luc," "Old 8tuff,' New
If the American "doughboy" who
started "I'll tell tho world" as a char
acteristic expression of the A. E. F.
took pride In having coined a new ex
pression he wns "out of luck," accord
ing to Henry Dwlght, Yonkers, N. Y.,
who has been trying to trace army
slang to its source.
In relating his uncertain success and
asking Uio assistance of tho demobil
ized world at large, Mr. Dwlght de
clares that each of the three supposed
Innovations is time-worn.
Referring to the expressions quoted
above, ho claims that Genernl Custer,
the Indian lighter, used "doughboy" In
letters to his wife, and that Arthur
Young, writer and traveler, announced
himself us being "out of luck" when
hunting for mail at Dijon, France, In
