Under Judge Kennedy's ruling the costs

The decision permanently enjoins the
defendants. Kohl berg and LaQrotta, from
renting or leasing the properties involved
for immoral purposes and from leasing
any property anywhere In the Judicial

restrained, however, from leasing for
legitimate purposes either the Involved

Harris and Woods, are permanently en-
Joined from conducting disorderly houses

Happy Land Flight
Down to his last nlckle and with no
hope of future prosperity, James Arm
strong, a Kamas City outcast, reasoned
with himself that life was not worth
while, and he decided to circumvent New
Year's resolutions by taking a short cut
to happyland. .He chose what occurred to
him tbe most pleasant method of suicidal
flight. At 11:90 o'clock yeaterdsy he
entered the Btara and Stripes saloon at
Thirteenth and Douglas streets and with
last nickel negotiated the purchase of a
giasa ox oeer. into tne amber riuld he
emptied twe ounees of carbolic add, and
then swallowed the decoction. The doc-'
tors at the hospital say he will recover.
