Tell the Editor About Your
' Troubles if You Have Any.
In changing and correcting
the mailer at the end of a year
it is quite easy to make mistakes.
In the handling of 5,000 names
the wonder is that we do not
make more errors. Any one of
our subscribers can get a cor
rection made, where a miscal
culation has been made on dates
or payments by culling at the
office and helping us to find the
error. We do not claim to be
infallible, but we cheerfully
correct any clerical errors in
book keeping, and the subscriber
who talks about the editor behind
his back has no honest complaint
else he would take it to head
quarters for adjustment.

good prospects of being able to
see as soon as his eye is suffici
ently healed to allow the removal
of the bandages. Mr. Bigham
has many friends and relatives
who will be glad to hear of his

her great age and the development
of pneumonia in both her

Wanted to Go to Jail But
Judge Kol Says, -'Not Now"
An unusual request was made
at the Police Court in this city
Saturday morning, when Enoch
Fritts appeared before Police
Judge Koltinsky and demanded
that he be sent to jail. Some
days ago Fritts, with a number
of others, was convicted, upon
a charge of gaming, the particular
offence being 'shooting crap9'
Not caring to pay the fine,
and being unwillly to fill a
bond, Fritts supposed he would
be sent to jail, there to spend the
next twenty four days "paying"
his fine and the costs, which amounted
to $24. But, greatly to
his surprise, the court did not
sentence him to jail, but set him
free, telling him that he could
pay the fine as soon as he got the
After thinking the matter over
Fritts decided that this charitable
disposition on the part of
the corr' was not likely to encore,
anf! that he had rather be
in jail how than later, when the
weather might be warmer, so he
returned to court this morning to
have himself sentenced. Judge
Koltinsky refused his peculiar
offer and sent him forth again.
He then canvassed the offices of
various lawyers in a vain effort
to find one who could force the
court to send him to jail. He
was much disappointed that none
of them would promise him any
chance of getting the strange variety
of relief he sought.
