X The State Arboretum and Tree
Planting at the Capital
V', ''-. !?
. Last Week. '
Crittenden Co., was well rep
resented at the State arboretum
nd tree planting at the Capitol
jrounds last week, by three trees
if the variety chosen, Sycamore
Hud Judge Blue, who was pres
ent to see the job well done,
reports that all three were planted.
As previously noted in these
columns, the trees were donated
by John W. Wilson, and were
selected and the shipping superintended
by J. F. Dodge, who
is not a novice in the culture of
trees and flowers; William H.
Wallace lent his friendly aid also
by helping to dig the. trees.
These gentlemen did what they
did gratuitously and the trees
should be named John, William
and Frank in their honor, to insure
them living and doing well.
PIGS m CHICKENS.
"Keep out of my back yard,"
Said the chicken to the pig,
"You'd better read the Ordinance
Before you start to dig. ' '
"Don't YOU crow over ME,"
Said the piggy to the hen,
"Keep off from my side walk,
VTou measley old 'has-been'! "
Then and there a fight began,
A grunt and then a crow.

Officer Loyd, do your duty.
Arrest that Suffragette,
She has'nt any vote you know
Nor has she time to set.
So there is where a feud Ijiegan
All on account of chickens,
They can't come on my sidewalk
Or you'll catch the Dickens.
The city council then assembled
And heard a lot of law,
Read Blackstone on tresspasses
And then began to jaw.
Some were for and some against
Keepin chickens in the barn:
After a while they compromised
Upon the following terms.
"Whereas all pigs and chickens,
That are found upon the street,
Will be promptly barbecued,
And the council then will eat."
This is where our chickens go,
As well as our fat shoats,
It's law, of course, but then,
The peoule are the goats.
The author of the above has
been a frequent contributor to
our columns, but has, perhaps,
never before, contributed anything
that would rank as a classic.
His literary standing is now
fully established. -Ed.

cuit Court Clerk, Mr. John G.
Asher, the Sheriff. J. A. C. Pickens
and his deputies J. T. Pickens
and D. E. Gilliland and the
following members, of the Crittenden
Senator-elect Ollie M. James,

Kaiser of the Louisville bar.
Several of the panel of Grand
Jurors were excused for various
reasons but the Court Clerk, assisted
by the Sheriff, quickly filled
the vacancies and twelve
good and true men were installed
and listened intently to the
very impressive charge of the
presiding Judge who prefaced
his remarks by saying:
"It is not generally known that
the Ju dge of this Court is absolutely
powerless to punish a
criminal no matter what the.
crime or the positive knowledge
that the Couct may have of its
commission until the Grand Jury
has heard the evidence and returned
"It will then be seen," continued
his honor, "why we should
have the very highest citizenship
as Grand Jurors, why they should
be entirely free to act and responsible
for their .nets to no one
but themselves. This Court will
in all ways hold up their hands
and render all necessary assistance,
as will the Commonwealth
and County Attorneys."
The crimes mentioned in the
decalogue were named and the
various degrees of the sam and
the punishment as provided by
statutes Nof our commonwealth
Especial stress v as given to
the crime of carrying concealed
weapons and the Juiors were instructed
to go into tins natter,
very carefully, as his Honor in
indignant tones denounced such
acts as those of cowards and
that no man who is a man in any
sense of the word will be guilty
of such a piactice.
The abuse of killingour full and
our game birds willfully and illegally
and the punishment for the
same was given due attention.
Th practice of Local Option
Districts standing idly by saying
and doing nothing while the
blind tiger practically destroys
whatever of manhood exists in
such districts, was roundly scored
and the Court advised the
Grand Jury in such cases to simply
ignore any complaints of selling
liquor illegally without the
bpst men1 of the district by their
names ari'influence stand by-aid ;
assist in the prosecution.
"I am fully convinced" said
his Honor, "of the great .benefit
to this country of the temperate
Drincioles that now nrevail. I
fully believe in the laws already
enacted in connection therewith'
