A Goose Story With a Moral.
The editor of tbe Gazette calls ut to task In
last week's Issne In regard to a statement
that Judge Dlttey bad bound Mr, Shane over
to Common Pleas Court for stealing poultry,
and proceeds to state tbat, notwithstanding
tbe fact'that Mr, Shane is a relative of the
Newmans and had tbe "Mutual Benefit, Pro
tective, Aid and Alibi Association" on band
In force to prove an alibi, the Judge failed to
see It tbelr way, and assesssd fine on tbe
basis of five dollars per goose and ten dollars
per Bronse turkey, amounting with costs to
333, the moral of whlob was that it was an
expensive luxury to said association, espec
ially If you should be brought before tbe
Qatette In bis capaolty of Probata Judge.
On Inqulr we failed to find where Mr.Bhane
bad paid the above amount In good, bard
cash on account of dues nnd membership
feee In said association, and as we have an
Institution wbere geutlemen wbo contraot
debts of honor of this character which they
are unable to liquidate In coin of tbe realm
can, by devoting a certain portluo of tbelr
time each day to the memory of Mr. MoAd
am, creates sinking fund which will in due
process of time wipe out said Indebtedness
we naturally expected to Snd Mr. Shane so
journing at tbe corner of Court and Short
streets. But alas I he waa not there, and tble
only goes lo prove that It Is expensive to the
taxpavtrt and not to sir. Shane for him to
belong to tbe M B P., A. and A. A.
Mobat. -Tbe moral of this Is, that It takes
great men to "catch 'em coroln'orgoln',"
and tne ,ople of this eonnty are fortunate
In having a man who eaa pose in his own
paper a a high moral reformer and "a man
wbo," and then as Jaifgt'end pslltloal boa

The following lines are dedicated to the
memory of little Doshie Thompson, who was
burned to death a few weeks since:
Little Doshie went to see its grandma kin J,
Little dreaming in her mind
The flames would catch her little diets,
And lay her low in her grave to rest.
Little Doshie so kind, so good,
Loved by all in tbe neighborhood;
O how sad to give thee ud.
To drink of sorrow from the bitter cup.
Fen and ink can not express,
The grief and sorrow and distress
When we look aronnd and see the vacant chair;
We almost wish onr Doshie was here.
Twas God who robbed us of our treasure,
Took her from earth to dwell in heaven;
She has gono and left us here below.
No more our sorrow and trouble to know.
ng for yon on tbe golden shore;
O wbat a bappy thongbt it will be,
To know that Doshie is waiting for thee.
Grandpa old with locks of gray,
Is traveling heavenward on his way;
He soon shall reach the golden shore,
Doshie is waiting for him at the door.
Papa and Mamma, weep no more,
For Doshin who has gone before;
God took her to heaven to dwell
And he doeth all things well.
T ive a Christian life while here,
And you wilt meet yoar uosmo dear,
Lore Ood's word and read it well,
And he will take you to heaven to dircll.
