For sotloe ulaeeouittable reason, the
Legilislature is being negleeted by the
newspapers. Up to this time that au
gust body has had almost no good ad
vice; and the members must, be ahung

Here's a good suggestion or two,
namely: Make it unlawful to shoot a
man in the back. Fixi a penalty for ne
gro hot suppers, and hold the giver of
such entortainmtient s responsible for

There Is a great deal being said and

for the pastor and his family.

they came, unleaded their buggies and
