Fixes Up Noses and Ears and
Is Called *‘Doctor.”
Grand Rapids, Mich.—About a hun-
dred human noses and perhaps twice
that many human ears have been
patched up by Turnkey Stephen Hale
at police le dquarters during his ten-
ure of office. It is quite a record when
yon consider that Hale’s education
along medical lines is nil. The nearest
Turnkey Ilale ever has been to a regu-
lar college where they teach men to
become doctors was down at Ann Ar-
bor years ago when he visited the cam-
pus. At that time friends pointed out
to the turnkey the place where they
turn out physicians every year and
give them the right to write M. D.
after their names,
Every big city has its fights at night.
Grand Rapids has its share of brawls,
and ‘the rules of fighting among a cer-
tain class seem to cling pretty close to
the catch-us-catch-can style. So not in-
frequently the victims of these fights
reach police headquarters with a bit of
a nose or the lobe of an ear missing.
Hale doesn’t count gouged faces and
| dgly ‘scratéhes.
William Morgan, the man who shot |’
‘A Yong time ago Hale's tilent for the
work he now does ‘was discovered with
the arrival at headquarters of a vicious
character whose ears and nose showed
some one had got, the better of him.
He wouldn't have the city physician
attend him.’ Hale's heart was touched
by the man's suffering neverehtless, so
after awhile he pulled him forth and
practiced the art of healing: The vic-
tim didn’t feel nearly as bad as he.
looked the following morning with his
head bandaged up, and after that the
turnkey was dubbed “Dr. Hale.”
Little Wife Spanks Him.
Sunbury, Pa.—“Sure, I spanked him
judge, but I'll be good in the future,”
declared Mrs. John Heim of Herndon
to Judge Moser in the Northumberland
county court here when she had her
230 pound husband in court on a deser-
tion charge. The wife weighs ninety
pounds. At the court’s suggestion the
pair agreed to ‘‘give and take,” and the
husband was discharged from custody.

Convers, Ga.—H. C. Penn has in his
possession a cowbell found by him in
Ben Carr bottoms in the year 1856.

small bells now, is made of one solid
piece of metal.

No Scrap Chew on earth ever had
a flavor like MASTER Scrap.

trees and a loaded strawberry patch

juice and let it soak in.

from the greatest cigar-factories in

Of course, Atlantic Rayolight Oil does
best in Rayo Lamps, but it will improve
the light of any lamp. Really the best
for heating, lighting and domestic uses.
