Students 8olve Mystery of O 8treet
As a student was dashing madly
down O street yesterday morning fh
search of an 8 o'clock, ho was seen to
halt suddenly and press his hand to
his forehead. His mouth oponed and
his oyes fairly protruded. On closer
examination it- -was discovoredthatr
ho was standing boforo a sign which
read "Wines and Sauer Kraut."
Thinking he had discovered a caso
for tho polico tho student hurried on
to report tho violation of tho law,
when ho overtook a fellow student.
Thinking two heads hotter than ono,
ho Imparted his secret. Student num
ber two then demanded a look at tho
sign, so back thoy both went. "Wlnos
and Sauor Kraut" was yet plainly
leglbloon"tho big sign board overlook
ing tho street. Student two was puz
fzled over the concoction botwoon
"wino" and "sauor kraut." Aftor
vainly racking their brainB for somo
timo for a solution of tho problem,
tho two students decided to take tho
quickest possible meanB of finding out,
namely to ask tho shopkeeper.
"Vino?" said tho heavy-sot butcher
who greeted them. "No-o-o. Ach, ya!
Dot vas a bum sign painter. Vicn-
ors " but tho studonts wore a rap
idly disappearing speck in tho direc
tion of tho university.
