Little hVyear-old Mabel Shedleyekl says
the ways of th probation officer are pat
understanding. Mabel speaks Polish bet
ter than she speaks English, but she Is
very proficient In either. She spoke for
her mother In juvenile court The mother
was charged with harboring a pigeon
that had maliciously alienated the af
fections of another pigeon's spouse.
Mabel explained. She said earlier In the
season a whole flock of pigeons hsd be
longed to them, but one by one they bad
gone away. "I don,'t know where they
went." she deiisred. with a shrug of her
shoulders, "but Ihey left. They never
csme hack. After a while there ass on'y
one pigeon left. Hs wss a he pigeon.
TTTen he went aaay. When he came back
he brought a wife. Now who la respon
sible for thst? How can we tell whe.-s
the pigeon came from?"
And Mabel glared across the tshle xt
one of her neighbors who hsd firmly ss
rted that the pigeon's wtfs waa her
pigeon. The court waa In a quandary.
How could It be proved where the pigeon
sot his wife? Judge Kennedy gave It up.
The neighbor left the court room In
sr.ger. Mabel smiled graciously snd would
have favored the probation officer with
a kiss, butNhe was bashful. "And. any

He is one of those good souls who is everybody's friend. Ha
only gives the worst of it to hiniBelf and the girl at home. He
doesn't realize this, but everybody else does. Many a wife, with
tear-stained cheeks and aching heart, sits alone during the
dark hours of the night while the "Good Fellow" is buying
drinks for those who he thinks are his friends. He honestly
intended to go home to the one who loves him, but he is unable
to withstand the desire for drink. The man is, at heart, made
of the right kind of stuff, but whiskey destroys his good resolu
tions. He wants to quit, but can't, because his will power is gone.
Three days at the Neal Institute will remove his appetite
for drink, put him on his feet and bring out the real IvfN that
is in him. The Neal treatment consists of a purely vegetable
medicine, taken internally and administered by a regular
physician. No hypodermic injections. Utmost privacy. Treat
