"Maria, I do wish you would quit talking to me about prohibi tion. If men want drink they are going to have it, and all your pro hibition laws in the world ain't a going to stop them from getting it." 'But see here, Joshua, don't you know ?" "Yes, I do know considerable more about it than you women do. Why, only 3resterday, that light ning rod man told' me that he could get all the liquor he wanted to in Maine and Iowa. I am in favor of repealing all prohibitory laws, so long as they are violated in that manner. Maria, the only way to deal with the question is to persuade the drinkers to quit sign the pledge. Moral suasion will do more good in one day than prohibition that does not prohibit will do in a year. Then make the rum sellers pay a high license. That's what I call practical tem perance." , n. "Maria, this ere stealing from ray orchard has got to stop or there will be a few dead thieves around here pretty soon. I won't stand it any longer." ."Joshua, isn't there a pretty strong prohibitory law against stealing in this state ?" "Yes, sir, there is ; and I am go ing to see it enforced. I will get a first-class gun and hire some man to watch the thieves and shoot them on the spot." "Say, Joshua, what's the use of trying to enforce that law ?" It is violated every day, and wouldn't it Xe better to repeal all laws against stealing until public sentiment is Teady to enforce them ?" "Public sentiment be hanged ! That shows how much you women know about practical matters." "But, Joshua, you can't make men honest by law, you know, and the only way you can settle this thieving question is to .persuade the thieves not to steal get them to sign the pledge, you know, and " "Maria, are you going crazy ?" "No, Joshua, I am getting to be a little 'practical,' dnn't you see ? As I was saying, get the thieves to sign the pledge never to steal again, and make those who refuse j pay a higfi license for stealing. That's what I call practical work." ' Maria, what a legislator you wou.'d make ! Under the magnifi cent schemes of your fertile brain, all great problems would be solved in two weeks. Now I propose to show you that the law against stealing can be enforced." in "Well, Maria, I have been to town, bought a gun, have hired j Bill Sykes to handle it and keep a sharp lookout for the thieves and bang away at the rirstt one that shows his head over the fence." il iio Well, Joshua, you know that prohibition doesn't prohibit, and here you have gone and spent $20 or $30 for a gun that will do no good. If men want to steal they are going to, and all your prohibi tion laws in the world won't stop them ?" "Maria, stop your nonsense. Wait a few weeks and we'll see if the thieves can be squelched or not." IV. "Well, Joshua, six weeks have gone by and the thieving goes on just the same. Now, what are you going to do about it ?" "You just wait and see." . "That's exactly what I have been doing. Prohibition doesn't prohibit, does it ?" "Not yet, but just you wait." (Continued.) In the Mayor's Court, Tim McGraw, a little black imp of the lower regions, was fined $2 and costs for vagrancy. Not being the first attempt, he was not rec ommended to mercy. Richard Robinson, breach of the peace. Dismissed. Hugh Mills and Hamlet Barry, for breaking the peace, and also each others' faces, were fined $2 and costs of court each. His hon or gave them some sound advice upon the evils of fighting on the Sabbath day, and advised them to carry their troubles to the mar shal and not go off in lonely for ests and disfigure each other. Boys, boys ! remember that he who fights and runs away may live to fight another day." OAS ! GAS ! W. Q. Barry, p- Practical Plumber and Contractor.
