What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.
A CONUNDRUM. By LOUISE 0. CUMMINGS. (Copyright, les, by American Press Also - elation.) Herbert Glenn and Laura Cather- wood were gulets at a house party ove evening. At dineer the subject of cote versation turned upon how far a wo- man should stand by a inieband or a Companies Control Forces of Workers lover who 'had committed a criminal Equipped to Fight Any of the offense.

For herself she would break an engagetneut with any luau who proved himself unworthy. Several of the gilc,ts looked at Glenn inquiringly. Noticing their glances, be remarked, \If the girl I loved sinned I would stand by her not because it was my duty, but because I loved her. \Spoken like a man!\ said the host. \But really the case would he re- versed. A MAD would stand by a WO - man in such a case through either duty or pity or both. The woman would stand by the man through love.\ There was some debate on this prop- isition, but when the party left the table the subject was dropped and for- gotten. One day a week inter the host called his guests into the drawing room, shut the doors and said to them: \One of us, a lady, this morning left a valuable brooch on her dresser when she came down to breakfast, but, thinking it unwise to leave an article of such value so exposed, went Imme- diately back for it. She had not been gone from her room live minutes, but the brooch was gone. Investigation has convinced me that there was no one in the house except those in this apartment and the servants and that none of the servants was upstairs at the time. One of us is a thief.

AN ARMY OF MEN ON CALL secure a small part of the wealth It produces and one not generally kuowu was the subject of a recent article in the Omaha World -Herald. The big street railway strike in Omaha was in full blast when the article appeared. The World-Ilerald said: Probably few people realize that there are now three great strike break- ing corporations In this country, be- littles a multitude of smaller ones, with the capital of August Belmont and others behind theta, furnishing im- mense financial resources and an army of men. Two years ago the New York Herald printed a story regarding the scope of this new business, and to the public it was a startling revelation. These companies handle any kind of strike, including that of railway switchmen, boilermakers, silversmiths, printers, street railway men and any or all classes of skilled labor and some- times the uuskii:ed labor strikes. al- though the others are the specialties of the companies. The Waddell -Mahon company, which has charge of the present strike, is said to have 350,000 men on its lists. The men, it in claimed by officials, are In a large measure those who quit their jobs at regular employment or get a leave of absence for thirty or sixty days to work as strike breakers when the occasion demands.

Thurston, the magician, had many interesting experiences during his pro- fessional tour of the globe several years ago. Ile went to all sorts of outlandish places and appeared before rulers of mauy strange lands and com- munities. On one occasion his inau- agar had arranged that Thurston should give an exhibition before the ruler of a province called Pagopago, In the Fiji islands. In the crowd that saw the exhibition were many of the black and yellow slaves of the chief- tain. All the spectators were amazed at the many strange manifestations of the black art that Thurston offered, but no trick appealed so strongly to the assembled retinue and to the chief- tain as that . In which a white duck was made to appear with a black head and a black duck, after a moment's manipulation, with the head of the white duck. The trick had to be re- peated, and then the chieftain engaged in a long whispered conversation with the Interpreter. \What is desired?\ queried the oblig- ing trick player. The interpreter coughed apologetic- ally and then responded: \Respected sir. our honored sire wishes you to take two of his slaves and put a yel- low head on a black man and the black head on the body of a 3 eliew servitor. Our honored sire thinks it would be very funny.\ \Tell his royal bigness,\ Thurston replied, \that I Could give a yellow man a black eye, but I would not like to attempt to make his eutire head black.\—Philadelphla Record. MONEY IN JUNK. The Stuff is Always In Demand, and the Profits are Largo. Up and clown the dirty back alleys drives the junkman, singing Ms mourn- ful, nasal cry, loading his rickety wagon with broken scraps and plecee of cld iron, an object of pity or of ridi- cule to most of the uninformed public. Let him be admired or envied. rather, for If not he himself, at least his em- ployer, is probably making more money than nine out of ten professional men. Few things are more depressing and unsightly than a little pile of junk as high as a two story building. One may see such piles In every city, and, so far as the casual observer can determine, none of the stuff is ever moved. The piles increase apparently from month to month and grow rustier and rustler, but the men in the business keep on buying. How are they able to keep so much money tied tip? Where do they get the large amount of capital which seems to be necessary? They borrow from the banks, like any other business man. on the secu- rity of their stock la trade. \No better security.\ the president of almost any bank will declare. \jt can neither bum nor blow away. It can't be damaged by water or smoke. When.. is there a co!latpral like that? It Is absolutely safe. The foundries and the hut anti bolt works and the stove fac- tories can't get along without It. It Pays the largest profits of any business to which we lend money, and these profits fluctuate very little. Junk is al- ways in demand. The men in that business are excellent customers.\— Technical World Magazine. — The Joy That Killed.
