action, there was little objection, be
yond the insistence by democrats that
no suspicion of blame be attached to

count of votes, upon the strength of
which Parkinson had been issued his
certificate of election. Republican
members of the elections committee

SLEUTHS' INTUITION AT FAULT
Investigation of Suitcase Convinced
Them That They Had Stumbled
On a Misleading Cue.
Two federal prohibition field agents
were seated in a train bound from
North Vernon to Indianapolis.
"Ah, ha!" exclaimed one, as he
nudged his companion in the ribs.
The two thereupon watched an el-
derly colored couple. The man had a
suitcase which seemed heavy, and he
handled it gingerly as lie placed it
under the seat. Tlie agents studied
the sltuntion and then decided to act.
"Excuse me," said one of the agents
addressing the colored man, "we will
have to bother you to let us see what
you have in that suitcase."
"Yes, sir; yes, sir," came the re-
ply. "Help yourself."
Expectantly the agents opened tho
suitcase and peered within. It con-
tained six cans of home-preserved
Birds' Nuptial Plumage.
Many birds have a plumage which
Is peculiar to tlie 111- ling season, and
which is therefore called the nuptial
plumage. The egret, or white heron,
acquires during the period of court-
ship tlie exquisite plumes which have
very nearly led to their extermination
by man. Among other species, such as
tlie scarlet tanager and the bobolink,
the striking plumage of the male bird
is replaced after the nesting season by
n suit of feathers much resembling
that of the inconspicuous female.
