A band of 5 West side youngsters ranging in ages from 10 years upward indulged in a regular boy bandit stunt this week. The leader was Fred Schmidt who secured some notoriety last winter by stealing a jug of whis key from a farmer’s sleigh and getting his gang of youngsters joyously intoxi cated. This time with a companion he burglarized the home of Fred Singer last Sunday evening. His efforts were rewarded by the discovery of SBS in a bureau drawer. Giving two of the younger boys $lO each, Schmidt and two companions took thj train for Mil waukee. The little fellows went out to Newton village and purchased revol vers, amunition and belts with the idea of becoming cow boys like the ones on the nickeldeum screens. This brave showing revealed the whole thing before Singers had missed the money. Up to last evening the depart ed trio had not been located. MANITOWOC Bill BECOMES LAW. A bill touching Manitowoc financial affairs was introduced in the stale senate some weeks ago by the senate Judiciary Committee and quickly pass ed there. Friday last it passed the assembly. Tuesday the governor sign ed it and it is now law. It validates the payment of $11,500 more for the water works plant than was first fixed by tiie Railroad Commission. Itclears up any doubt as to the validity of the city’s $70,000 of new reissued 4-1 per cent bonds and provides that the four per cents that were pledged fur a. loan may be exchanged for the new four and a halfs. The bill was designed to clear up any doubt as to the legality of the involved finianeial transactions which occurred when the water works plant was bought and which were necessitated by the unsalibibty of the city’s water works 4 per cent bonds.

The wisest thing to do when you have a cold that troubles you is to get a bottle of Dr. King’s New Discovery. You will get relief from the first dose, and finally the cough will disappear. O. H. Brown, of Muscadine, Ala., writes: “My wife was down in bed with an ob stinate cough, and I honestly believe had it not been for Dr. King’s New Discovery, she would not be living to day.” Known for forty-three years as the best remedy for coughs and colds.

A glaring instance is Frederick the Great, whose spelling and punctuation astounded Carlyle, says the London Chronicle. "A ateure” for ‘‘a cette heure” was a specimen of the former, “and as for punctuation, he never could understand the mys tery of It; he merely scatter® a few commas and dashes as if they were shaken out of a pepper box upon his page and so leaves It.” How, asks Carlyle, can such sloven liness be explained In a king who “would have ordered arrest for the smallest speck of mud on a man’s buff belt, Indignant that any pipe clayed portion of a man should not be per fectly pipe clayed?” He can only con elude that Frederick really cared lit tle about literature after all. Alsu "he never minded snuff upon his own chin, not even upon his waistcoat and breeches.” “I am a king and above grammar,” said another monarch. Man Converse* With Animal*.

Indeed, he claims proficien cy in fifteen animal languages. He has a peculiar palate, with no tonsils, and entirely lacks the cord connecting the teeth with the lips.

Eldridge, of the 14th Regiment, after being home on a short furlough, pro ceeded as far as Cairo to join his Regi ment, and was taken sick at that place. —He was compelled to return home, and is now improving. Butter.—lt is so long since we have seen any butter that we couldn’t tell it now. Won’t some of our subscribers send us in an ounce or two—or two or three, or five or six pounds? AT Home Mr. James A. Hodges, who was taken prisoner last fall near Murfreesboro, by *he rebels, and taken by them to Richmond, relurnefl home on Saturday last—looking well. He tells good yarns of his life in the South and Barnum might make a fortune by hiring him to spin yarns. Jim always could tell a good story, but his experi ence among the rebels has greatly add ed to his stock of fun. Death in the 21st Mead Holmes, Jr., a member of Cos. K, 21st Regiment, recently died of heart disease, in camp near Murfreesboro. His age was 21 years, and his body reached here on Tuesday last, under the charge of his father. The funeral took place Thursday afternoon, and a large concourse fol lowed his remains to their last resting place, testifying their respect to the deceased and his family. Lumbering We never saw our lumbermen feel so line as at the pres ent time. Most of their logs “have comedown,” and the high price of lumber many a smile from those who, a few weeks since, were in doubt as to the amount of rain which would visit us.

August Schuetle is making merry over a little daughter who first saw the light of day on Wednesday, Tim Kelley and Tom Roche are as nervous as old maids these days and want to he on'the hosom of Lake Mich- The city council did not exercise good judgment in selecting a good sealer of weights and measures from the first class material on hand. What does Fred Hinrichs know about sealing or weighing or measuring? His ex perience as a pharmacist makes him partial to light weights and small measures, and under his administra tion schnits of beer will replace the schooner and a pound of sugar will be reduced to the apothecary's 12 oz. How will people like to buy a pound of Long Jack smoking tobacco and find the weight short, or a stick of candy bearing the national colors but falling short of the ref ulation length? Pea nuts will be schriveled, and a hunk of chewing gum will no longer distend the rosy cheeks of the school girl. The city council will act wisely to re consider the vole whereby Hinrichs was chosen, and in the new 'election disfranchise Bill Dicko and Fred Hau kohi, two men who stand in the way of the election of the only man in the city competent to discharge the duties of sealer of weights and measures, and whose name it is unneceeary to men tion.

In his proclamation he urges a general clean ing up of school grounds anti homo grounds and in beautifying the land scape. The matter of protection from tire should not be overlooked. Every school in the county should ■observe this day with appropriate ex ercises. The annuals have been sent out from this ollice. It is a beautiful and well prepared pamphlet andean lie of much good if the teachers use it pro perly. Attention is called to the teachers of the importance of emphasizing Great er Fire Protection. On page 102 of the annual statistics and other information are given which can be made very in teresting and valuable. In planting homo grounds or school grounds, teacher's ought to be guided by instructions from good tastes in ar ranging tire trees. On a school ground it is not well to arrange the trees in rows. Any other good artistic arrange ment would ire better. There are sev eral good U. S. Bulletins published on Planting Home and School Grounds. If shrubbery is planted care should al so be taken in arranging it so as to be most artistic. Twenty-live boys are going to enter the “Acre Corn Contest” which is go ing to be conducted with the school boys of the county. Many more boys wrote in asking to be let in on the con test but l>ecause of not being able to supply good pure bred seed we could not accept them. A number however are going to try to get good seed of their own and enter anyhow. As many as wish can enter this contest under these conditions. The rules governing’ this contest will be sent out to each contestant before planting time. We hope under favorable conditions to prove to the people of Manitowoc Coun ty that the yield of corn per acre can be doubled. There will also be an alfalfa contest. This contest however will be confined to the graded schools only. About thirty pupils have expressed a willing ness to take this up. A plot of ground containing 4 square rods will lie sown. There are not many fanners today, who say that we cannot raise alfalfa in Manitowoc County but we hope by this contest more of the points to lie con sidered in order to raise Alfalfa suc cessfully will lie brought out. and made known to the people Toe great majority given Mr. t’. P. Cary for state superintendent over that of Mr. Kittle shows clearly that the people are awake to the conditions and know the situation exactly. There is no question hut that a great deal of politics entered into this light, and tin 1 result shows clearly that the mass of the people do not care to mix polities with school affairs. The Hoard of Pub lic Affairs criticised severely a county superintendent for spending considera ble money to secure the olllce, but no comment is made on the matter of state superintendent where several thousand dollars were spent by a can didate to secure the olllce. There is something working somewhere that is not best for our school system. Just why thousands of dollars should be spent by the state to secure expert accountants and bookkeepers and young men with no experience it is hard to say. Just why the appointing power should have selected these in experienced school men, men who have never taught school a day in their life to investigate our schools it is hard to say. If such men were to fie appointed, why not appoint some from our own state? But such work should bo placed in the hands of schoolmen of experience, and not in the hands of apprentices who were serving their first years in this work. “The truth shall come to light soon." Would 3ave the Trees. Mrs Helen C, Longstreet is work inn hard to save the forests of Geor gia, and is matting speeches in the state to get money to curry on the work.
