RIGHT CHURCH BUT THE
A crowd of girls started to Reidsville
the other night to support their fond
team at a basketball game. In spite
of the rain and snow, they continued
on their way. Arriving in the fair
city, they inquired the way to the said
game. “Two blocks to the right, one to
the left ,and then to Clark’s Ware
house,” were the directions. These
members of the fairer sex did as they
were told—for once—and left the car
in which they were riding. They boldly
walked in the warehouse to give their
lungs a treat. To their surprise, there
was not a single person there they
knew. One of the members of the
party asked who was playing. Well
here they had gone to a game of two
factory teams. Stranded in a strange
city alone and darkness everywhere
the poor dears were frightened greatly
Well, at any rate, they got to the
game they wanted to see, even if they
were terribly late.

the first victory for the Purple and

What Hit Him?
A Topeka millinan tells about a tin
roof of a Kansas store that was torn
off and rolled into a compact bundle
by a cyclone. Having a sense of hu
mor, the owner wrapped a few strands
of baling wire around the ruin and
shipped it to Henry Ford. In due time
came a communication saying:
“It will cost you $48.50 to have your
car repaired. For heaven’s sake, tell
us what hit you.”—Exchange.
