Alexson, the lethargic, still wrapped in Morpheus arms, indulging in what li his sweet fancy is pleased to call deep- U breathing exercises, but to his stall- mate sounds, at midnight's holy hour, like the none-too-distant rumblings of .. some mighty mill; dextrous maniputa- dinavian thews stand revealed; follows an uprising as of Mars himself, and then a hesitant inquiry as to the hour on viewing a pillow poised for flight at his flaxen dome; the answer that it approaches the witching time of 7:30 brings the response: "Oh, Mighty Thor, out of thy infinite mercy destroy this night-hawk," followed by vain gropings after the couch coverings, far- flung to all corners.

And so to another day of grinding toil in this life of cruel hardness. The St. Louis Sporting News is on sale at Windle's News Stand.
