There wore 14 male passengers on

along tl.e running-board and said to
each one In succession:

"I know, but 1 couldn't do it."
"I don't see what you are afraid of.”
Perhaps not. but 1 don't propose to

"I don't see how you can. Isn't this
a free country?”
"Yes, sir, but 1 work for a boss."
"Well, 1 should vote for myself, and |
my boss might hear of it.”
"Hut suppose he did?"
"Then I'd get the sack in two min- j

date himself, and he wouldn't stand
my being in opposition. Very sorry,
but I'll let the straw voting alone and

How One Company’s Assets Are Dis-

In connection with its withdrawal
from Texas, along with many other
companies, rather than to submit to
the new law which requires that 7.r>%
of the reserves on Texas policies shall
be invested In securities of that stale,
which securities shall he deposited In
the state and subjected to heavy taxa-
tion, in addition to the large tax now
imposed on life Insurance premiums,
the Equitable Life Assurance Society
has made public the distribution of its
assets, at the end of the second year
of ttie now management. The Equit-
able now has $10,958,000 Invested in
Texas, which is twice as much as the
new law requires, but the manage-
ment decided that to submit to the
additional taxation would he an injus-
tice to its policyholders in other
states, which impose no such penalty
on the thrift of their citizens.
The Equitable's report shows that
more than 37% of its total reserves
are now Invested in the southern and
western stales, while only 35% of Its
total Insurance Is carried In these
states. Its investments are distributed

“It was at a children’s treat In the
I country,” s^id the Settlement worker
with pink cheeks and unbounded en-
thusiasm, "and lemonade and edibles
were being supplied to a collection of
! small children who looked, for the
i most part, like babies and were as
j sophisticated as I don't know what to

everyone was gelling enough to eat

pnug of lemonade had not been touched
apparently. I observed that there was
a little twig from one of the trees
floating on the top, but they are not
fastidious as a rule and it did not oc-
cur to me that he objected to the
proof that he was playing under real

a knowing twinkle he said: "I guess,
teacher, I'm too little to drink lemon-

Mr. Samuels was horseback and>
when right at the banks of Wewoka
creek, mx miles north of lien, the;
panther sprang from a tree and hod1

the huge cat would have landed
qunrely on Mr. Samuels’ back. As
it was, the panther landed on the
round in front of him and. having
listed its mark bounded oft into
1 e brush. Mr. Samuels’ pony also

I t-r mui'l: declares fervidly that there

poked at those who have heretofore
report-id having encountered this
same panther; but it is beyond a
joke now. It is likely an organized
hunt will bo made in an effort to
kill the animal, as it is feared it
will do mortal damage.
