THE ANCIENT MARINER AND
- THE CAKE THAT WAS LOADED
An illustration of th old saying. "Ha
who laughs last laughs beat." wss pain
fully but strikingly presented last night
when a number of illloums ' of Louis
P. Beno tried to make that gentleman
the laughingstock of a coterie In the
' habit of enjoying a siesta by th river's
aide at th foot of Stark street each
evening when the weather permits.:
During th past few daya Mr. Beno,
who owna a gasoline launch, has gained
considerable notoriety aa an expert with
th hook and line, much to th annoy
ance of his friends, who assert em
phatically that his catches never exceed
two catfish and a sucker. ,
About I o'clock Tuesday night Mr. Beno,
surrounded by Dr. Ney Churchman. Jack
Williams and a few' other Intimate
: friends, sat watching th river from his
boathpuse at th foot of 8tark street
when a messenger appeared with a large
box and a letter addressed to "Admiral
Ixiuls P. Beno." -
The box- contained a large frosted
' cake bearing th inscription, -"To th
Champion of First Class Llara." in
scribed of letters of candy. ' In view of
the addressed letter accompanying the
box. Mr. Beno could not welt disclaim
being the intended recipient of th
present- and ad had to make th beat of
"Now, boya'Hteir yV what we'll1
do." suggested 'Mr. Beno. w, must
tak a little spin and eat that caka
It looks good to me." ;
' Th proposition was accepted and in
a few moments the party waa enjoying
Mr. Beno's hospitality -W board of th
launch, bound 'for , a , point ,-dowa th
river. ..;-".'''' j -. -r
Dr. Churchman volunteered toTt the
oak and he handed pieces to his. chums
and they at heartily. Mr. Beno, how
ever.' was too busy looking after th
machinery of the- boat to partake of th
feast and' for that he la now thankful,
because. hardly had tb feed commenced
before-th participants began to feel a
strange sensation, bearing a strong re
semblance to seasickness.
On by on they begged sir. Beno to
steer for "shore., but his ears - heard
nothing bnt the rhuck-ebuck of . th
motor, until finally 'the .crowd threat
ened mutiny "Unless they wer taken
back to Stark street without delay,
"For God's saks forglv me," stam
mered Dr. Churchman, as . he hurried
from the boat for something to tske the
taste out of his mouth, "I didn't know
It was loaded. I am a bigger liar than
you are. "'.. ' '
From th watchman on tn aocg Mr.
Beno learned th fact that Dr. Church-
