Judge Had to Pay.

asked, for a logo at the Opera lions?.
He was told that both of the loges ha 1
been engaged for the concert Saturday
night Just then Wray Taylor came to
the rescue and told tho Judgo he ought
to take one of tho boxes. Tho Judpe
did not see It that way, Mr. Taylor
then proposed that they match to see
who would have to pay for the box,
The Judge agreed to this plan and the
coins were tossed, The long and shmt
of tho whole thing Is that the Judgo
had to pay for tho box.

This Is Just what has happened, tin

Samuel Parker, an able lawyer of halt

of this man's election Is that It wim

vote solidly against the Americans.
There nre nbout three thousand Am

thirty thousand natives. The require
