DOCTORS JSSUE DOPE SLIPS IS
Theh force of the Harrison anti
drug act may turn against some of
our "mose respectahle" professional
gentlemen. An investigation by U. S.

will the maid forlorn have to pine for
the advent of leap year that she, who
is not pursued, may pursue. Judge
Hough of the federal court says
every year is leap year for girls and
they have a perfect right to ask men
to marry them.
This ruling was made in the case
of Kleist vs. Breitung, in which Max
Kleist, one-time gardener Romeo, de

Kleist's lawyer endeavored to intro
duce in evidence atthe hearing a let

the purpose of proving that Juliet had
done the largest part of the wooing
and had arranged the marriage.
Judge Hough ruled the letter-out with
the declaration that he knew no law
to prevent any marriageable woman
asking an eligible man to marry her.
Upon protest of residents of East
Elm st., from N. State to Lake Shore
drive, George Schilling, pres. of board
of local Improvements, rescinded the
Order ft Ijaye street paved.
"Of course, th' argument in favor
