ST. LOUIS — "Sew up that slit skirt," was the curt note Kitty Cobb, petite stenographer for the Shapleigh Hardware Co., found on her desk.

She swang on her chair and shouted a defiant, "I will not."

"You will, or you'll quit," was the answer.

"I've quit then," replied Kitty.

"They have no right to tell me what to wear," she said to a sympathetic reporter, "besides it was only a little four-inch slit."

The Shapleigh Co. has a branch store in this city.


Ray Campbell, prominently mentioned as Willie Ritchie's Labor Day foe, in place of Freddie Welsh, boxed ten rounds to a draw with Herb White of Stockton, Calif., in this city July 4, 1912.

He had nothing but a pair of tights and gloves that night, and should be soft for the champion.
