The reason for the reduction Is riven

Margaret McCarthy, aged 11, who wan
put on the witness stand to testify in
the divorce suit which her mother, Mrs.
iary Lonergan McCarthy, Is prosecut
ing against the father, broke into sooe
and was excused through intercession
of Judge Kennedy.
''Papa was angry at mamma," she
began, and burled her head In her arms.
Tears came to her father's eyes. He
testified that he still had affection for
Other children have appeared as wit

Simeral Want?? Pay
for Overcoat Taken
from Relief Station
If you wero donating your Hervleeii to
tho citizens' relief eomtnltten and doing
all you could to alleviate the sufferings
of tornado victims, would you feel pcevtd
If some bloke blew along on a cold day
and swiped your overcoat? Kd Hlmeral
does. He feels peeved to the extent of
$27 and has asked the rellof committee
to reimburse htm In that amount.
Simeral was working at Thirty-third
and Cuming streets and he was working
hard. It was not a warm day but he
worked so hard he found It convenient to
discard a valuable new overcoat. He
threw It Aside and kept on working. Ho
dispensed many garments and provided
the sufferers with food.
When he had finished his work (simeral
felt the chill in the air and turned to the
other side of the counter to get his over
coat. Thot garment was gone. It
couldn't be found anywhere.
"Perhaps you gave It away," suggested
Simeral resented tho Insinuation. Per
haps It was because somebody laughed
that Simeral feels he ought to be reim
bursed, but certain it Is that he Is under
the Impression that charity did not ex
tend to that new overcoat.
Now the rellof commlttco Is In a quan
dary. Acting Mayor Dan Butler was
made a committee of one to scorch
through the relief committee's stores.
but he reported his mission a failure. He
could find no cost among the stores that,
In his opinion, would be a proper sartorial
adornment for simeral. Tho caso Is pend

mittee for settlement.
