A LEWIS was a soldier
As brave as brave could be,

The drug-store brand, of " 'skce."
If Lv.is hadn't tackled
Tho drug-store whisky, he
Would not have been convicted
And paid a fine of three.
"You tell a lie!" shouted Alice
Spriggs, bringing her clenched fist down
on her palm with a resounding smack. "I
never tieted any profane language In my
life. I won't stand It tho way you peo
ple punish me!"
The statement that called forth Ihka
outburst In the courtroom wan the testi
mony of Officer Mllner tlfnt Alice, a no
torious colored woman had uncri shock
ingly profane and abusive language when
she was ai rested for drunkenness.
Court and spectators looked with as
tonishment at the Infuriated colored wom

by nn officer and the case went on, MIhs
Spriggs was asked If she desired to cross

for mo and you to settle this quar
rel. You have arretted me enough:"
Mr. Mllner was excused and the court
gave Alice thirty days, telling her that
she would be pardoned If she could get
a ticket out of the city.
"Thank you kindly, sir." she said.
Tho woman, who is completely demented
when drunk, had finished a ninety-day
sentence Junt four and a halt days be
fore her last arrest.
"I want to be a soldier
And with tho soldiers stand."
George Wilson told his Honor
With manner mild and bland.
"Though now 1 am a agrnnt.
As meek as uny lamb.
If pardoned I am willing
To fight for Uncle Sum."
"This fellow," said the lawyer,
' Tho public to deceive.
Was begging through the city
And showed an empty sleeve."
"That's why the soldier business
For me has many charms.

I'd learn to carry arms."

He went Into the cell-house
With sixty days to do. ,

THE MAYOR OF NEW
WHITES A LETTER TO THE HOME
Sraehl & Franken and the Smith
Drug Company Publish It to
Show How the Fame of Their
Vinol Is Spreading.
"We hau constantly been publishir'
facts about the great good VI no I has
been doing right here In town," ex
plained Mr. JJrueh of Druehl &. Frank
en. our well-known druggists, "and it
is with prldi we are permitted to pub
lish herewith a letter from a far-off
city, showing that the unquestionable
merit of Vinol Is being recognized In
all parts of the country. The Hon. C.
G. Hesse, Mayor of New Smyrna, Fla.,
" 'It must afford you great satisfac
tion to know that you have succeeded
In placing before the people a cod liver
oil preparation of wuch high merit and
great ruHilive power as Vinol. I know
of nothing superior in cases of throat
and lung troubles and to build up the
system after wasting diseases.' "
" 'Vinol invigorates the system, heals
discusc, Induces appetite and helps as
similate the food. In fact, It assists
nature to perform her duties without
friction, and this always means good
" '1 am satisfied Vinol'y marvelous re
building power is derived from the val
uablo curative medicinal 'elements
found in the cod liver, which by your
admirable njethod you are able to ad
minister without a drop of oil or any
i HON. C. G. HESSE.
" 'Such a high-class preparation,
which I know from experience does all
and more than it claims, has my hearty
"Such testimony as this is valuable,
because It is genuine. Such a man as
the Hon. Mr. Hesse would not go out
of his way to voluntarily recommend
Vinol unless ho knew it was worthy.
This seems to back up what we have
been claiming so long for Vinol, and is
published for that purpose.
"There is not a shadow of doubt about
Vinol being the greatest preparation of
cod liver oil ever Fold to the American
public, and therefore it mut't be tho
greatest tonic reconstructor known to
"In the strongest manner we unhesi
tatingly Indorse and guarantee Vinol to
increase the appetite, cure stomach
troubles, give strength and renewed vi
tality to the aged, build up the run

weak strong, cure chronic coughs, coldft

growjng In this city may readily
be seen from the 'records in the
ollice of the County Clerk. Last
year tho ratio between divorces and
marriages, as taken from the com
plaints filed and licenses issued, was
as 1 to C. For the montli of April this
year the latter figure was reduced to
5.54 and for the month ending yester
day the ratio Is shown to be still fur
ther reduced, the records showing one
divorce to every -1.13 marriages. It is
believed that these figures cannot be
duplicated in any other State of the
During the past n'.or.lh the County
Clerk Issued 102 marriage licenses and
in his ofllce were filed twenty-three ac
tions for divorce, which give the ratio
of one divorce to every 4.13 marriages.

twenty-two complaints for divorce were
filed Jind l'J- marriage licenses were Is
sued. The total number of actions filed
in the District court for May was fev-enty-slx

TjTWO thousand one hundred and"
twenty-five dollars per annum is
j claimed to be due the cjty of Salt
Lake from persons doing business
as wholesale meat dealers. There are J
said 'to be twenty-one firms and in
dividuals who sell meat at wholesale to
the retail butchers In this city. Seven
of these are down on the books Of the
City Treasurer as paying wholesale
dealer's license. Fourteen escape pay
ing their 5125 every year, besides three
of th Eastern packing houses'; which
sell fresh meat and pay no license, al
though local dealers ljold them to be
For a long time License Inspector
John Halvorson of the City Treasurer's
office has been trying to bring some of
these evaders to book. uBt each one of
uirae Kvuura me u.nu every prose
cution which the City Treasury has at- 1
tempted has failed.. One case in par
ticular, brought up not long ago and
tried In the City court, was that of a
man known to be doing a wholesale
business In meat In the southeastern
part of the cit,y. When the ease eame
up In court he showed a contract to the
effect that he. was lp partnership with
another firm tint hod taken out a II
ccnii. But he had a separate place of
business; he worked quite Independent
ly of the other llrnvftnd had letterheads
and billheads showing him to be In
business for himself.
Some of the wholesale dealers pay
ing licenses are held to be to blame in
the matter. One of them has a man
buying .meat for them, but at the same
time selling at wholesale on his own ac
count. When asked for a license, he
claims that he Is working for tlnSrfirni
that has a. license and this firm fincks
him up in the stoiuiiuit, itli thfe re- ,
suit that he evades paying hiJ due.', j ( i
Another type of evaders of the llceiw t t
ordinances is that of the pr-rsorTwhGM j f
place of business is not located In Silt 1 1
Lake This man claims to lie a pr f :
ducer. In spite of what he claims U ;
Is known to the City Treasury that h -Is
going around the rountr buying up t
meat, which he sells In Salt Iike to ttj I
retailers. As he has no expenses, ai)j i
:lng no license or rent, he Is easily aim ,
to undersell tho regular wholesalers. I (
One recalcitrant was arrested jesUQ
day, but he did not think it worth 'jj
while standing a -trial, and promptly a
paid his license. I f
