paying its operators half our salaries with a system placed in an open country in a small area thickly populated coKMng about onethird of tho cost of our system to maintain why vas it that that

would poke Jung in the side Both were fantastically arrayed in Eastern garb Neither showed any part of their body but their hands Two mattresses wero used to prevent their being hurt by fall ing The idea on the part of the con testants seemed to be to avoid as much as possible hitting each other Every once in awailethey would forget themselves and land a slap on the other fellows face or neck
