God , man ; t > top or I'll shoot , " upon
which he stopped and the sheriff
' searched and disarmed him.

Hotel Girls All Walk Out.
Conspiracy on the part on wait
resses and chambermaids of the Oxnard -
nard hotel put that Institution in an
embarrassing position last evening.
Three waitresses , two chambermaids
and a "silver" girl , walked out Just
before supper was to be served and
the guests had to go elsewhere fo
satisfy their appetites.
R. F. Schiller , manager of the hotel ,
had no hint iut to the proposed walk
out until he had thrown open the dinIng -
Ing room door and announced to hlit
guests that "mippor Is served. " Guestn
seated themselves at the tables but no
girls In the usual neat white linen ,
came to wait on them. The cook had
a supper ready for a largo and hungry
crowd and Manager Schiller soon
found It necessary to make known to
his guests , his predicament.
About a week ago the glrlfl began
discussing the proposed "walk-out"
quietly among themselves. They
would wait until Tuesday payday
and after serving dinner and after re
ceiving their wages , they would leave
the management of the hotel In a
"pickle. " A pli'klo It was , and the
guests sympathized with Mr. Schlllor ,
when they learned the fat-Is of the con
spiracy. Mr. Schiller can give no
reason for the "walk-out. "
"Many of these girls rome hero
without a cent. I give them the best
of treatment and often help them out
In any financial difficulty they may bo
In. 1 don't know why they have done
this. There are no reasotm , " ho said.

Salter 4445456C 5. 43.
Bogey 44453566 4. 41.

scored 42. The fourth green was he-
Ing watered , so that it could not be
played on. His ball rested on the edge
of the green on stroke No. 3. The
ball was about twelve feet from the
hole. If this hole had been played
