This is the year for unmarried wo
men to propose to gentlemen. They

sphere of women ts such an unlimited
extent that they nifty safely regard

their wishes known. They can come

Judge Bond has decided that a man

A Hotel Decision.?A question
interesting to hotel keepers and their
guests ?was decided by Chief Judge
Brown, in Baltimore, on t nturday.
.Some mouths ago a regular boarder
at a hotel, on temporarily leaving his
room, gave the key to tho proprietor.
During his absence clothing valued at
$35 was stolen from his room, nnd up
on ascertaining ibis fact he demanded
reimbursement from tho proprietor'
His demand wns refused, and he
brought suit to recover, but lost the
case. He then appealed to the city
court, and on Saturday Judge Brown
revoked the former decision, and gave
a judgment for S.'5"> and costs in favor
of tho p'entiff, holding that the pro
prietor was guilty of negligence in
having a number of keys fitting the
locks on the doors of the same rooms,
and thus had not furnished sufficient
protection to the effects of his board
ers or trucsts.
