Tlie supposition is that just bcfoie
tho plans for tlie lobbcty ueio censu

the gang aud skipped tho countty. A
stranger took tlio place of Ci uighton
and tho plans for tlio robbery were
proceeded with. Young Marvin was
sent into Puauh Spiiugs after a sup

the lecogiiitlon of the coPt-murk on

was identified b) these gentlemen, ns
was also some camp ulen-ils and pi o

Tho Danger of linrlv KIslnz.
Yet another venerable supeistition
has met its doom at the hands of the
inepiessible "scientist," says the
Loudon World. Until now people
have been content to accept, if not to
act upon the theory that eaily using
in conjunction, of couise, with a cur
lesponditigly early habit ot going In
bed is conducive not only to wealth
and wisdom, but also to health. lu
ll e U, u familiar i hjmed adage protests
ns much in so many words. But, like
mauy another piimitive belli f, It has
been iiilhlcssly shatteied by tho scien
tific iconoclasis, ono of whom now
claims to liavo discov eied that people
who get up eaily go mad iiiiuli nunc
teadily than otheis. In suppoit of
his tbeoiy he points to tho undoubted
pievalenio of infinity among those
engaged in ngiicultuial putsiiils.
Though it is sad to see a time IioiiihimI
doctiiuo thus exploded, one is disposed
to faor the new opinion at the ex
pense of the old. In an) case, llieie
can be no hat in in being on the safe
side, ami, after all, it is so casj not to
get up call).
