A lawyer in a court room may call
a man a liar, Bcoundrel, villiao or
thief, and no one makes a complaint,
when court adjourns. If a news

or a dead editor. This is owing to
the fact that the people believe
what an editor,,, says. What the

most desperate criminals on record

criminal has been able to put on a

hearted cruelty to tho same degree
through out the trial. Ho did not
oven show any Higua of humanity
when his attorneys left him at tho
very outset of the trial, but under

Revolvers in School
On Monday afternoon Ed. Charles,
tho teacher of tho Port Tievertou
Grammar school, had an experience
not often found outside of Texas or
ludian Territory. Somo one told
him that ono of his pupils carried a
revolver in school. Ho did not place
much credence in the remark, at
the time, vet thought it advimible to
investigate the matter. This was n
difficult task, und required the skill
of a detoctivt. However, tho dffort
wm an aurrwurfngly rewarded, that
Mie teacher imaginea uo u
the rendevous of a modern johm
James. The youthful aspirants to
notoriety were loatho to part with
thoir shooting irons, but tho teacher
locked tho door, und peremptorily
demanded a surrender. A few radi
cal measures brought the required
answer, uud iu u few moments tho
teacher's doHk was adorned with (i
small quantity of cartridges ; one
Smith & Weston revolver, :)2uulibru ;
ono common revolver, 22 calibre,
with six or seven chambers loaded,
and two single-barrel pistol, one
of which was loaded.
Tho suggestion has been made
that the directors furnish Ed. with
a Gatling gun, but ho is. of the
opinion that the parents of somo of
our older street lads, had better ad
just their family government ero the
