De livered in any part of the city for only 15 cents a week. The Marshal Tries to Break Time-Honored Practice. On Monday Marshal Molloy tacked up on trees and posts along the side walks a lot of beautiful Nile green placards bearing the injunction "Don't Hitch Here." Those placards seem to have had greater adhesive power than the most popular brand of sticky fly paper, lesteruay he and nis asso ciates made a round of the traps and found twenty of these placards more securely fastened to the posts and trees by halter straps to the other end of which were attached horses, mules, burros, etc. The marshal's purpose with tne placards was to discourage the practice of hitching to trees ar- ', posts in such a manner that the hort could obstruct the sidewalk. The owners of the an male had evidently cot read the showy posters thus proving that that sort of advertising is not profitable. The marshal and his assistants gathered up the horses and quartered them at Frakes' livery stable. Their owners were considered under arrest and were compelled to go before the ecorder, who explained the aim and purpose of the city to quit being an overgrown village and he desired the co-operation of all gentlemen owning horses and hitching straps. After having made this explanation he gave the owners orders upon Mr. Frakes for the surrender of their horses. In the meantime the marshal is figur ing on some design which will be sufficiently attractive to catch and en tertain the human eye. He is considering the expense of erecting by the side of every exposed post and tree a lofty tower constructed after the manner of a "dead fall," so that it will fall down with a painful crush upon the man who attempts to hitch a horse and thus engage his atten tion to the fact that that particular post or tree is not there for hitching purpose.
