Guest With Wintry Name Registers
at Coates House.

"Well, wouldn't that give you the shivers," exclaimed George Mong, clerk at the Coates house, last night, as he looked at the register just after a guest had writteen his name. Not even the electric fans could make the heat bearable, and Mr. Mong was standing behind the big desk trying to look as though he were comfortable in the light summer coat he was wearing.

"Think of the nerve of a man registering a name like that, on a night like this," he continued. Those who heard his complaint stole the first opportunity to take a look at the book. The man's name was, "John W. Frost, Bloomington, Ill."
