Hardly a morning comes along that some worthless scamp is not brought before City Judge Converse on trial charges. They gladly go to jail and an expense Is thus brought on the county keeping up such characters who would rather die than do an hon est day's work. Every week there are several who are thus brought before the jtdge charged with begging, loitering, drunkenness and other charges. If he sends every one to jail the cry soon goes up, that he is filling the jail with prisoners who delight in having a place to stay where they are free from thoughts of having to earn their living. If they are turned loose it is nly to be brought' before him again In a few days. ' If workhouse were established in this city it would be free from such worthless characters in a short time. Make one of such lazy tramps work for a few weeks and he will bid good bye to the city forever. by X. Y. Z. Wabash, Ind., Jan. 6, (Spl.) George F. Strong, manager of a chil dren's industrial school at Hughton, Mich., conceived the idea of remov ing his school to Seattle, Wash., and re-establishing there a big Institution. He spent all he had. $3,000. to build a big automobile like a houseboat. In this he loaded his wards, all musi cal adepts, organized as a band. Zigzagging across the country, they sought to raise enough money to de fray expenses by giving concerts, and he hoped to raise a tg endowment by contributions. II has failed and the children, now wards of Howard county, where they went broke were placed in White's institution there. That place now has a band. The hopes of a big industrial school have been shattered and Strong can not sell his big automobile house, for it can be used for nothing else but a travel ing home.

Already Making Preparations For Their Spring Business Seed Corn Will be Scarce Richmond gardners and hothouse growers are already making prepara tion for their spring busin ss and are buying seeds in great quantities, it being their idea the winter this year will be an open one, as it was last, thereby giving them the oppor tunity of planting earlier than usual. A prominent .dealer in seeds said yesterday, that he expected an in crease in the sale of seeds this year, by at least one-fifth over last year's business. He also said that the pries would remain about as usual. Of all the seeds that would be scarce during the coming season, corn will lead. This is caused by the unsuccessful maturing last year, mak ing it of inferior quality.
