One day, it appears, soon after her
entrance into this school, one little
girl came home with a face wet with
tears and her mouth covered with
The mother was greatly alarmed,
and, taking the child into her arms,
asked what had happened.
The story of what had happened
was sobbed out to the sympathetic
mother. One Sammy Parker, it
seemed, had struck the little girl and
knocked out a couple of teeth.
When the unfortunate youngster had
been restored to equanimity her fa-

"Yes. indeed," said the little girl,
and all the passengers smiled, while
the mother beamed at the attention

dolls' heads comes right off—just like

three congressmen met In a room at
the capitol and began a discussion of
the $75,000,000 pension appropriation.
One remarked that he had cast his
vote according to the "dictates of his
conscience." Another spoke tip and
said: "Stop right now—there Is no
use of your lying to yourself about it.
I voted for the appropriation to catch
j tiie old scldier vote and so did you. 1
have voted for every crowd that came
along that had any votes lied to it,
and so did you; and I will continue to
do so and so will you; and there is no
1 use in lying to each other behind

had dropped In. seemed curious to
