A certain woman in a Connecti
cut town has quite a reputation as a
singer at funerals. Last year she
sang at 1G7 of these lugubrious
functions. Not only her own town,
but villages and cities for miles
around bespoke her services on such
occasions. Early last spring the
woman foreswore funerals, and went
away for a vacation. The day after
her return she met a neighbor. Tho
neighbor was 40, thin and plain
spoken. "Good morning, Martha," said the
funeral prima donna. "How is your
mother this morning?"
"Ma's dead," drawled Martha.
"Oh, I am so sorry," said tho sin
ger. "Can I be of any assistance?"
"No, I guess not," said Martha.
Tho singer was surprised at that.
"When Is your mother to bo bur
led?" she asked.
"She Is burled," said Martha, who
in her turn showed astonishment.
"What!" exclaimed tho singer.
"Why, its strange I didn't hear any
thing about it. When did she die?"
"About six months ago."
Tho singer's bewilderment In
creased. "I must haye been away at tho
time," she said, "but it is funny that
none of my family told me anything
"I cuess." said Martha, "they did
not think It wortfi while to tell you,

SHE SUSTAINS THE MYSTERY
Missing Russian Girl Returns and

London, Nov. 9.-r-Barbara Laponk

oubIv disappeared after leaving the
Alwich Theater here October 24, re
turned today to her friends voluntari
ly, as mysteriously as sho disap

The mildly derogatory German
word for our skyscrapers Is "Wol
kenkratzer" cloud scratchers. It la
astonishing with what unanimity tho
American travelers abroad seek to
Impress their foreign acquaintances
with recitals of tho tremendous dl
mentlons of these structural giants.
A Frankfort merchant recently relat
ed his experiences with his American
"Last summer," said he, "a west
erner was In my shop. 'Frankfort Is
a pretty good town,' he told me. 'It
has good trolley cars, broad streets,
fair hotels, bully beer places. But
say, where are your tall' buildings?
Why, wo havo one IS stories In
"I expressed my appreciation, but
really was somewhat skeptical at the
time. During tho winter another
American friend paid mo a business
vlBlt and I asked him whether It was
true there wero buildings in America
which could boast of their 18 stories.
'Man alive,' ho said to me, 'I havo an
interest in a building which is just
completed and which is 24 stories in
"What was I to say. I merely
waited until I met another of your
fellow-citizens and I asked him as to
truth of tho statement that America
contained a single building of 24
stories. 'Hordes of them,' he assured
me. 'They are mere cottages. My
office is in a building which has 32
stories. I myself am In tho thirty
first.' "Really I was dubious. This sum
mer I saw another American to
whom I confided my doubts and in
pulred as to the real facts about that
building 32 stories high. 'Facts!
said he. 'Thirty-two isn't so big.
There is a new building on Broadway
that Is 42 stories from cellar to roof.'
"It Is evident," tho German mer
chant concluded, "that we have done
you an Injustice. Wo must change
our word. Cloud scratcher doesn't
seem to fit. I guess it will be moon
scratcher In another year and sun
scratcher before the next peace conference."
