MYSTERY IN "SUPERB."
Kent Bull shrugged his shoulders, dug
Into the pockot of his overalls and pro
duced a telegram, which he handed to the
twins.. Bob read It first while Bob echoed
each word, as follows:

Bob Bull, susnlelntmlv.

turning away and going down the hill to
Ills duck run.
Old Zedeklah Bull -was pacing up nnd
ouwn tno nig Kitchen of the old Bull

The rumor that tho ladies will also wear 'cm this season seems hereby confirmed. Bonwit & Teller, who constructed the new model, describe
it as a rambler skirt. Barbed wire fences and high street car steps have now lost their terrors. Tho picture was made by nn Evening Ledger

got to the house he found tho venerable
Mr. Bull recumbent In his grandfather's
wing chair, rather n bit all In nftcr hav
ing torn out his telephone by tho roots.
In his rngo ho had forgotten the simple
elementary principles of electricity,
wherefore ho had ocqulred a severe shock
that had hurled him through the sitting
room door In such a manner, according
to the cook, that he had turned two com
plete somersaults before landing neatly
Into tho chair In which he sat, foaming a
little at the lips and mumbling incoher
ently the old nursery rhyme:
Tiffgy-tlggy-touchwoocl, my black hen.
Hhe lays egga for gentlemen,
Sometimes rlne ami pometlmcs ten.

Old Doc Smother worked over Zedeklah
Bull for two hours before he brought him

Former Brakeman Amuses Himself
Flagging Trolley Cars.
"When Ben PlnUon Isn't In a hospital
or a police station ho spends his spare
time flagging trolley cars with a red
lantern. Ben, for many years, was
brakeman. He likes to remember the old
days, and his memory was so vivid to
day that he got a read lantern and
wandered out to the car tracks at 20th
street and Susquehanna avenue. Several
motormen Baw the light swinging, and
stopped their ears. When they made In
quiry, Ben replied by singing, "I've Been
Working on the nallroad."
He was singing this refrain when
Policeman O'Neill arrested him. Then
It was found that the prisoner compared
in description with a man who escaped
from three hospitals last night, and Ben
admitted that he was the patient. Ills'
record for the evening follows:
9:30 admitted to the Samaritan Hospi
11:30 admitted to the German Hospi
3:30 a. m. admitted to the Women's
Homeppathlc HospltaMspralned ankle.
He went to the last mentioned Institu
tion before he began flagging the trol
leys. When Policeman O'Neill took Ben
to the 26th and York Btreeta station It
was found that the Injury to his ankle
was purely psychological. He was ex
amined by a physician and sent to the
Philadelphia Hospital ta be straightened
