Dr. Solomon Is a veteran of the civil war.
When bis roods were loaded on a wagon
and hauled sway to satisfy a demand for
delinquent taxes he promptly called at the
mo of Mayor "Jim." an old friend.
"Those food were bought with money
from my pension," he declared, "and they
can't take them for taxes."
Me further Insisted that the mayor so
down with him and lend tthe weight of
his presence when he paid the taxes, which
hs had decided to do under protest. Bo
Mayor "Jim" accompanied the physician
to the treasurer's office, the doctor having
handed him 1120.23, the amount of the
taxes to be paid. Treasurer Fink received
the party personally.
"We are going to pay these taxes," an
nounced the mayor with dignity. "Hut we
want It nnderstood that we do so under
protest The goods were bought with pen
sion money received by Dr. Solomon from
Flak Is Dambfownded.
Mr. 'Pink stared, dumbfounded.
"Why, what In the world Is the matter
with you?" he finally exclaimed. "There
Is no law of that kind and It Is foolish to
talk about It."
The major waved his hand with an air
that said discussion would be useless.
"We'll let the courts decide that." he
Later the treasurer appeared in ths
mayor's office to protest that he could
never hope to grt any court to decide such
a Qulxotlo proposition In his favor and that
he waa foolish to advance 11 of his own
money to back a man who rested his
claim upon It, .
But the mayor smiled not and only an
swered again with the cryptic:
"WVtl see what the courts say to that."

SHE FORGOT TO WRITE IT ALL
Tires Dsar Girls Try to Eat Three Dear
(hickeoi for Laochton.
HOSTESS WILL NEVER FORGET IT
Her sweetheart Now Sings "Every
Mh Ah Brings Mah Honey
Chicken," and Other
This Is a tale of three dear girls and
three "dear" chicken dlnnera
On of the young women is th presiding
genius of an office In a Farnam street
She invited two friends to go to lunoh
with her one day last week.
"Now, don't order a big dinner and
'break' me Ilk you might do If I were a
man," cautioned the hostess aa they took
their chairs at a table In a Farnam street
"Well. I'll take a dill pickle and a
cracker," announced on of the other young
women falling In with this request.
"Oh, no, I don't mean that," said ths
hostess. "But we can get a nice little
lunch for 80 or 40 cents. Now. let's see,
we all like chicken sandwiches."
And so, with proper feminine deliberation,
the lunch was ordered. Tbe hostess wrote
the order down. It was to be three chicken
sandwiches, three cups of coffee and three
dishes of Ice cream.
And then the three chattered gaily away,
telling each other about new gowns and
"how much it would take for the waist,"
and other topics of femlntns Interest. They
were Interrupted by the approach of a
waiter with an Immense tray. He depos
ited It solemnly next to their table and
began moving the dishes to the table. First
he deposited three whole chickens, each on
n immense platter and each surrounded
with all that goes with on of those
properly furnished triumphs of the oullnary
art Bach chicken loomed up before Its
respective young woman like a small
Kebody Saya a Word.
None of the three could say a word.
They sat dumbfounded while the waiter
added dish after dish, surrounding the
huge chickens with a veritable brood of
smaller dishes till th table was com
By this time the two guests were having
difficulty In repressing their laughter. Th
hostess found her vole.
"Is this what I ordered?" she asked the
waiter. That functionary produced the
slip. There wae the fatal error. The young
woman had written "chicken" where she
should have written "chicken sandwich."
But she wss game.
