Humor and Ano-er Blend
A little scene in which the elements of
humor and anger were hnpplly blended
transpired yesterday morning at the in
tersection of Twelfth nnd Douglas streets.
A man, who did not give his nnme, driving
an automobile without a number, became
stalled on the car tracks and was for
some minutes the object of considerable
abuse and merriment.
The chauffeur evidently wns out for a
morning constitutional In his benzine buggy.
His lungs were Inflated with the morning
atmosphere as he whizzed over the ptreets
In his car and his soul was filled with the
autumnal beauties as viewed from the

in the employ of one Joseph B. Humm?l,
street superintendent, were flushing tl

to pass. This chauffeur Is a man of much
weight and his auto of many times much
weight. Just as he reached the car tracks
the machine suddenly stepped as still as if
it had been painted on tho street. There
was water, water everywhere. The wor
ried chauffeur turned this crank and that
crank, this wheel and that wheel, scld a
few cuss words, bit off a chew of tobacco
and finally dismounted In a pool of water.
He tried to push the machine frcm its an
chorage and great leads of presplratlon
stood out on his brow as he heard the
repeated ringing of the be'.l on an ap
proaching Council Bluffs cir, laden with
many passengers anxious to reach their
dest nations. He pushed n the auto again.
He took off his coat and pushed again, but
the machine would not budge. The pas
sengers begnn to get eff the Council Bluffs
car and congregate aroi.nd tho stilled ma
chine and the fat chauffeur.
"Why don't some of you give a fellow a
hand?" asked the owner of the machine
us he gave another push on the auto and
nearly swallowed the chew of tobacco he
had taken as a bracer.
"Serves you right. You ought to drlvo
a horse and you would not get stuck,"
came a response from the edge of the
Two cars were now lined up on the tracks
and the crowd around the Indisposed auto
grew as the minute passed.

genial location. The auto was taken to
a garage, the street cars passed on, tha
street was continued to be flushed an1

their white slaters. The train waited at
