City Officials Flee
Come in Control
Seven city commissioners forgot that
a suffrage association was meeting In
the council chamber. Puffing at cigars
that smelted to heaven and loudty and
Jovially discussing a purely private mat
ter they marched right In on the meqtlng
and then marohed out again.
Mayor Dahtman, who is more or less
a "ladles' man," was less dismayed than
his comrades. He remarked that the big
yellow banner proclaiming "equality ,be
foro tho law" was r rather good Job of
sowing. Jack Ryder, who Is acknowledged
the handsomest man on tho city com
mission by all except Dan Butler, who
claims the honor for himself, suggested
that the council go right ahead.
City Clerk Flynn read the call of the
board of equalization, while the commis
sioners sized up the suffragettes. A dele
gation of the best looking equal suf
frage advocates approached the commis
sioners and the city officials fled forth
with. Al Kugel, leading tho retreat.
Later Kugel was left on watch, as Is
required by law when the commission
sits as a board of equalization. They pro
vided him with a little table in an In
conspicuous corner of the room and left
him vlti Judge Berka, who Is the great
est peace advocate that ever held sway
at the municipal castle.
The mystery of the animated hat and
coat rack Is puzzling the Inmates of the
new county building. It may never be

Calabria reported to George Anthcs, chief
clerk of the auditing department, who
checked the furniture In the building. The
report showed no rack In Judge ICstcUc's

An investigation developed that there
was no rack missing from the building.
The checkers had given Judge Kennedy's
court room credit for a rack and had
noted there was none In Judge Kstello's

fact was that there was a rack in Es-
tcllo's court.but none In Kennedy's.

The charming music which heretofore only
artist of stringed instruments could haz

means of the Orkin Bros. Player-piano club
Seventy-five persons out of every hundred cannot play any musical instrument, ninety-nine
persons out of every hundred love music.
Would it not be a pleasure and
delight for you to have music in
your home the very best of music
and to produce it yourself, either
in whole or in part?
Would it not be worth the while
to be in a position to invite some
good singer or violinist or celloist to
your home and there in the com
pany of a few good friends have the
best there is in music, to your own
accompaniment? This is just what
you can do with an Orkin Broth'
Any one who loves music or who
has any musical taste, can, with the
least effort, play the world's best

It requires no technique or no
skill. It requires no knowledge of
piano playing none whatever.
All pianists that play by hand are '
limited in the scope of their playing.
A skilled performer on a piano
probably cannot play over 50 or 75
selections well; well enough at best
to risk his reputation by playing
them in public. With an Orkin
Brothers Player-Piano you are
unlimited as to choice.
The whole realm of music is yours.
You can be the master of Chopin
and Beethoven just as the average
pianist is the master of some simple
little march or two-step. You can play the operas you love. You can accompany your
favorite songs. The plain facts are that with the Orkin Brothers Player-Piano you can
grow and educate yourself to an understanding of music which only
those who have slaved a lifetime now enjow.
You can own through Orkin Brothers a player-piano
