Somewhere Lawrence Proulex, ss- -littant
superintendent of mailt,
heard that If a person it attacked by
s hawk, thst snimal will , loosen
Its hold only by having itt
feet burned. This informstion served
him in good ttesd yesterday after
noon when in the course of his duties
he examined a ttrange paper corru
gated box from which muffled founds
were emanating. Closer examination
disclosed a large, gray, angry hawk
which became all the angrier when
the assistant superintendent tried to
tooths itt ruffled feelings with s
gentle ttroke. i .
With s cry of triumph the feath
ered cannibal made straight for Law
rence, who managed to save himself,
by ducking under a desk. It was
some fight and finally ended when
the weakened bird flopped over in
despair. Lawrence Proulex lost no
time in putting the hawk back in its
box. . k
