A down-east editor has drawn up
seme new game laws which he has
adopted: "Book agents-may be killed
from October 1st to November 1st:
Spring poets from March 1st to June
1st: Umbrella borrowers from August
1st to November 1st: while every man
who accepts a newspaper two years,
and upon being presented with the
bill, says, I never ordered it, may be
killed on the spot, without reserve or
relief and buried face downward with
out benefit or clergy."
One of the most urgent needs of
Okiahomo is women, and its legisla
tors are apparently about to offer
them special inducements to come
there by giving them the right to vote
and hold office. If they won't come
to perform the useful but unobtrusive
part of wives and mothers, content to
rule the household, they propose to
make agreeable to them by making
them rulers of the body politic alder
men, county commissioners, mayors,
governors, judges, sheriffs and police
men. They are evidently not partic
ular what kind of women they get
there so that they get them.

The dinner habit is growing in the
Democratic party. This has many
pitfalls for a man like liryan, who

As we came in on a Big Four train
last Saturday from Delaware we
noticed a well barbered and highly
scented 4 'young man of the period"
complacently admiring a fine pair of
patent leather shoes which were ele
vated on the seat in front of him.
Finally he espied a thread on one of
his shoes, and, seizing it, be gently
drew it to him. It seemed to be quite
long, so he wound it around bis kid
gloved hand. After getting quite a
knot of it he found it was fast to bis
side, and, glancing along his leg, he
found that he had unraveled one seam
of his pants leg, which hung in a
loose flap. The last we saw of him he
had borrowed two pins from the con
ductor, and was retreating sidewise
toward the smoking car with horror
and disgust plainly depicted on his
conntonence. Ohio State Journal.
