A Frye Street householder in Lewiston heard a discussion in his back hall Wednesday night between the cook and a husky-voiced intruder. Going out, he found the latter to be a bleary chap with a bleeding cut over his eye. His hat was dented and his voice was sprung, and what’s worse he wouldn’t go out the way he came or any other way. Finally the man of the house called his wife and told her to telephone the police. She did it. The quick ear of the intruder heard it, and the way he vamoosed was equal to a look at the rear end of a skidding automobile in a Vanderbilt cup race.

The areas were set up for one-way traffic and the new ordinance was passed by a unanimous vote.
