NEW SHORT STORIES TO CLOSE 1 ' ' Mr. Cleveland'« Teat. w,- • In a speech at Norwich, C< mm >., the home of hla grandfather, delivered dur ing a recent vlalt, ex-Fresldent Cleve land told the following anecdote: "When I lived In Buffalo, a good many year» ago, a man also lived there whose occupation wai largely the collection of bad debts. He was so persistent mil followed a debtor In a manner so destructive of peace and comfort that he was quite commonly known as ‘Pestilence.' He originated in Norwich, and I determined that If I ever hud au opportunity I would test his Norwich pride of nativity. One day he called on me, and »Ince he was not on a col lecting errand we began a pleasant chat. He soon remarked that he bad often wondered If I was In any way feinted to 1’eacon Cleveland, who used to live In Norwich. With the opportu nity I ha<1 awaited so fairly presented me and anxious to make the test as thorough ils possible I replied that I was somewhat related to the deacon as a grandson and casually indicated my doubts as to 111» fair dealing In bl» huHlnewi a» a watchmaker and repair er. The tjest wax most effective, but the explosion was terrific. For an !n- stant I feared physical harm, and be fore the door wa» slammed behind a raging figure I was told with vigorous emphasis that I was a disgrace to my name and that If I ever became a man one-half a» honest and respectable a- my grandfather who lived In Norwich 1 would be more lucky than I deserved to be and more of the same sort. Now, of course I knew it was wrong as an ordinary proposition to speak In the way I <rtil about my grandfather, but in ahi of an Important research and for the purpose of testing a most Interest lug theory I sacrificed my sense of pro priety. I have fully made up my mind that under no stress of temptation will I ever again even appear to scandalize •r »peak lightly of my own or any one else'» grandfather If he was born In Norwich.” We Offer You for the NEXT THIRTY DAYS Ladies’ Mackintoshes Regular $4.00, Now $2.85 Misses’ “ “ $3.75, $2.65 ii «I $6.50, Men’s $4.65 MEN’S AND BOYS’ OVERCOATS, OREGON ALL-WOOL MACKINAWS.
