With the publicity given the sto
ry ot the French ball at, Spokane, it
may be certain that there is a frantic
hurrying home of absent wives, and a
strenuous hustle of erring husbands to
be absent when the loved spouses ar
rive. Naturally enough every hus
band in Spokane, who cannot estab
lish an alibi, will be regarded in the
household as steeped in guilt, and will
have penance to do for months to
come. The story ef the ball is print

" Spokane, Jul 16. Assisted by
3O women from the Tenderloin, ten
kegs of beer and five dczen bottles
of champagne, 35 Spokane men
held a wild orgie in the Turner ball
last night. It was privately tipped
off as a select French ball, with in
vitatioDs limited to fifty. . Before
the affair ended its features would

Spokane club-. ' '
. Down in the Tenderloin five par
lor bouses closed their doors in or
der that the inmates could attend
the select French ball. After a few
hours of revelry the women tired of
plain dancing and began acrobatic
stunts, for which they were loudly
applauded. One of these ; was a
band daDce, the performers endeav
oring to keep waltz time while bal
ancing on, their bands. ,- Another
favorite pastime was a champagne
shampoo, until the floor was too
gummy for dancing.

. "The tip-exacting Pullman car por
ters are the recipients of a gooa
many knocks from press and public,
tmt they are not the worst in. the
world," remarked a commercial trav
eler to a Washington Star man.
"They may have a pretty fierce way
of drilling for tips, but when it comes'
to the matter of honesty I knowt-on
of them that's there with the goods,
as the saying goes. j "
"I left San Francisco, or, rather,
Oakland, on the Santa Fe line for
Chicago at ' 8 o'clock in the evening
a couple of weeks ago last Sunday.
The gang that I met in 'Frisco had
been rather too enthusiastic in giv
ing me a good time of it out there
on the day of my departure, so that
when I woke up on ihe train silong
toward 7 o'clock the next morning
the sleeper bunk felt pretty warm
and my coppers a whole lot warmer.
The nearest, in fact, the first stop
at vhich I would have a chance to fix
thtise hot coppers out was Mojave.
ani so I hustled into my. clothes to
be ready to hop off the train during
the stop at Mojave for one of those
kat en jammer alleviators.
'"I. asked the Pullman conductor
how long the train would stop at
Me'-iye, and he replied that the stop
wonld last ten minutes. I raced into
the station cafe xWhen, the train
pulled into Mojave, and instructed
the man in charge of the bar to rig
me up one of those long. long damp
things. He went ,at the job in a pret
ty scientific manner, and the piece of
wet work that he set before me was
a rare thing to find right alongside
of the California desert. It was such
a fine and effective creation, in fact,
that I asked him to frame up an
other one, and I got away with this
with equal joy. Then I leisurely
strolled to the door to take a look
at my train and saw the end of it
curling away in the rarefied distance
on its way toward the land of the
rising sun. It had pulled out without
notifying me.. I hustled into the
ticket office to ask the man in the
window when I'd be able to corral
another eastbound train, and he said
that it 'ud be along at 8 o'clock the
next morning the mate to the train
that had departed without me; there
was only one of the overland ex
presses per diem. So there I saw my
self stuck in Mojave, Cal., the most
miserable little sand dune on the
globe, for a full twenty-four hours.
"But' that wasn't the worst of it.
I had left my Gladstone bag wide
open on my bunk, with my wearing
apparel thrown around the section
every which way, and in the ""bag I
had placed, on the night before, $200
in gold coin, the stuff being too
heavy to carry around m my pockets
with any comfort. ' "T
