TRAGEDY IN STRIKE'S WAKE
Brooklyn Man'* Sortie on Roller
Skates Came to End In Sudden
and Dire Disaster.
This is another of those stories In

reason for being absent or even un
usually late for work. So It was up
to him 10 get to the olticc In some
mannei. Hie llrst and second days
of the tleup be managed to get
Jammed on a tmck. It would have
been all right If he hadn't seen . n !lie
third day that three girls had roller
skated across the bridge.
J. K. remembered his youth dis-
tinctly and he was pretty sure that
roller skating was easy. Certainly he
should be able to manipulate the sim-
ple straight-forward steps after the
complex patterns of his youth And
so It was that ho borrowed his small
daughter's skates, pulled thoin out to
the limit of extension and set forth
across the bridge of many slglis.
J. K. found that he managed prel
ty well until he got to the bridge
When the pavement was level It was
quite easy and despite his modesty
he found that the surprised and ap
preciatlve glances of the less fortun
ate Brooklynltes were very pleasant
It gave him a fine feeling of returned
youth to be roller skating along wltli
the best of the youngsters.
But he had reckoned without the
slope at the New York end of the
bridge. Here the itructure begins to
descend slightly to meet the roadway.
And J. K. lost control of his pedal
traction nrrangements. He grew
pale as he saw a great mass of peo-
ple ahead of him. Yelling did no
good, for the traffic was too great.
So he hit the mass of humanity with
a thud, which Jolted the chewing gum
clear down the throats of two ste
nogrnphers. J. K. found himself seat-
ed on the pavement. Ills straw hat
was gone nnd Ihere was n bad rip In
his coat. Slowly he got up, apolo
glied profusely and looked for Ids
hat. He found It where he bad been
Kitting. But it was quite useless

Baom In Spanish Capital.
An effort to solve the housing prob-
lem -n (he Spanish capital caused by
the inrush of thousands of country
tolk tu Madrid, Is in progress in the
northern section adjacent to the su-
burb of Cuatro Caminos. A private
concern has acquired an euormous
tract of land, and has begun building
what for Madrid are skyscrapers of
leu stories. ISatii of these buildings
is to contain 4(H) tints and 40 stores.
The new model suburb is to lie in all
respects modern. Knglneers are now
engaged In laying out u boulevard run-
ning through Its center, more than
half a mile long and KiO feel In width,
with two carriage ways and a central
promenade lined with trees.
Ingenious "Hatroom Pirates,"
Two hatrooin pirates in a Broad-
way dnnsant had u battle over a
spool oi thread the other night. When
they were pulled apart It was learned
that they use white thread to loosen
change from tightwads. They cut the
thread in little strips. When a per-
son refuses to tip for being brushed
off, (lie hoys wait until he reaches the
front door, then rush after him and
begin apparently to pull a number of

they show them to the tightwad. It is
