In Company With Mister Hard
Boiled Egg, He Takes in
Grand Opera Show.
SEES I TBOVYTORY, ALSO
I Mister Hard-Boiled Egg, closely
ollowtd by Tkree-Card Monty, the
1 artender, wiggled through the dense
Jcrowd of grand opera patrons pouring
jfrom the Auditorium, where the cur
tain had just fallen on the last scene
I "Watch yer'atep, kid 1" admonished
?Monty, as Egg slipped and nearly
3ost hit balance. .
3 "Never mind the step I'm watch-
;ing my watch," was thox hasty retort,
yi got jipped for twenty berries right
.after the Stecher-Lewis rassle, an' th'
icrowd wasn't half at big'z thizn. . I
Uuppose Joe's old lady oyer there'll

I Egg looked at Monty and Monty
Oooked at Egg. Egg broke the shell
"Well, we've did it. We had ten
Jbucks and we did it. We had it corn
ling and we got it. We've been grand
uproared. Mow l suppose you re sat
; Monty grinned. "Yep, I'm satis
jfied. I'm going again tonight."
S "Well, you can go, but when you
'do, there's an Egg that'll have good
jwishcs for you, but not with you. I'm
Igoins to see the Orpheum."
j "Irs B. V. D. what you do, but
ime, I'm seeing this El Trovytory. It
:was one swell show tonight and if El
Trovytory's half as good I'll stand
"Yehl A whole lot you understand,
;di(incha. Now it's all over an' we
'seen an' heard It,, what' It all about?"
: Knows All About It
"I knew before I went in," Monty
; answered. ."A guy tells me the whole
:lav last week."
I "Yeh, Soat, he'a th' bird that told
.'us we d have to hunt up the old soup'
rand-fish uniform. Now we've got
j'em, what'll we do. with, 'em sling
hash? That ain't the worst of it
feighther. Th boss is aettin' with his
missus about six seat awav in the
: four-buck chairs an' he'i wearin' a red
necktie. The only change he made in
his does was to spill egg on his
; vest for supper. He took one look at

J -7'Aw, say, "jou'd have something to
f wolf about if it was raining kale an'
y'had an' empty cisternl"
: "Sure I'm woffin' about this 'Car
men' show. Ask me haw much didn't
Jo over my head. Ask me anything I
don't know I I'm layin' out my
, jack thinkin' it's about the car men s
strike in New York an' you get the
lowdown on it an' clam. If I make
a bet I saw 'Carmen' I got to have
: "If ya quit wolfln" III tell ya what
t it's all about You see' Carmen' is
I the name of a broad, an' if brains was
a boulevard, she'd be an alley. In the
ifirst ack she an' another moll who
" works in a spaghetti factory gets into
, a rookus an' this Carmen muff mows
.her down with blade.
J Nuts About Another,
g "This Darn Hosiery guy, he's a cop
an' he's nuts about-another broad, but
! he falls hard for this Carmen when he
pinches her for mixin' with this other
moll in the ipaget foundry. Carmen
. she cons him into tettin' her shake it
before the wagon comes, which he
jdoes, but the sergeant is anoopin'
around and he sees the play and so
this young cop he gets hauled up on
? charges and is fired. Then be joins
the Sheeleytown gang and gets a job
as ward captain, thinkin' he s in right
. with Carmen anyway. She's too fly,
though, an' she blows him for a guy
5 who's a bullfighter, which in. them
I days is the same as a taxi driver or a
j barber now. That makes this guy
, sore an' he tips with a knife an' hews
1 her down. That's alt they is to it."
I Egg scratched his head a minute.
; "Well, all I've got to aay Is, if thaf s
j grand opera, I've teen lots of it down
i on Douglas street, but I didn't know
3 it was opera then. After you know

SCALE SIGNED IN APRIL
Punxsutawiiey, Pa., Oct. 24. The
Rochester & Pittsburgh Coal and
Coke company, whose mines here are
closed by a strike of 2,500 miners,
who presented a new scale after the
company had signed the scale of the
United Mine Workers of America,
announced today that suit would be
filed against each miner, and the local
unions of which they are members,
asking damages because of the sus
pension. The company's lawyers are
now engaged in framing the petition,
which alleges that the men violated
their agreement, signed April 15 last
in Philadelphia, when they quit work
in the demanding of a new scale. It
contends that the United Mine Work
ers are just as liable for breach of
contract as any responsible corpora
tion or individual. The suit, officers
of the company said, was based on
the decisions in the Danburry Hatters'
The Best Laxative.
To keep the bowels regular the best
laxative is outdoor exercise. Drink a
full glass of water half an hour before
breakfast and eat an abundance of
fruit and vegetables, also establish a
regular habit and be sure that your
bowels move once each day. When
a medicine is needed take Chamber
lain's Tablets. They are pleasant to
take and mild and gentle in effect Ob
