And How Those Tiffined Taxi
Drivers Blusli At Disrobing
Before Fretty Brunet.
Chicago.—Taxi drivers here are
blushing to their ears, and seriously
considering the advisability ol
wearing either suits of armor or
suits of the surf.
Individually, their problem is dis
tresslng, for what's a sensitive; fel
low a-goin’ to do when a pretty girl
armed with a seductive smile and a
l persuasive automatic, commands
him to—disrobe? Especially on a
cold, cold night! Consider the
cases of Stephen Walczysky, Harry
May, Joseph Mamitco and Louis
Tworek, cab drivers—and particul
arly that of Stephen, which is rep
A Refined Fellow.
Stephen is one of those refined
fellows, the kind that never peeks
into the front mirror to observe how
his fares are behaving. Imagine his
passengers—one a cute, dimpled
brunette with laughing eyes, and
the other a human behemoth—in

tiie pretty girl with mirthful eyes
leveled a gun at him and saidw:
Take 'em off!’’
“Take w-w-what off?’’ stammer
ed Stephen, horror stricken.
Stephen’s face turned red, for he
is a sensitive man. when lie heard
the brunette bandit’s reply. How
ever, an automatic pistol even in a
feminine hand, is eloquently con
vincing, and Stephen, trying to
hide behind his blushes, started
“taking them off."
His hat and coat came first. Not
enough. And off came the shirt.
Oh, it was emoarrassing! But the
laughing eyes glittered behind the
bead of the gun and—well, what
could Stephen do?
Later that morning our hero ap
peared at a nearby police station in
search of a barrel, and discovered

According to police, the brunette

victims to disrobe alter which they

away and cast them In on alley, the
idea being to prevent pursuit. The
brain child is highly effective.
In any event, Chicago cab drivers
are quite perturbed. Their natural
