local assessors is an experienced real

A false alarm of fire was sounded
mtfently calling the firemen oat at 10
o'clock at night on a fool's errand.
The extreme limit of the law is not
too sevesru^for a perlon guilty of trifling

however, is apt to be forgotten when ,
it is realized that the city itself is

An Oklahoma man once told an
Indian th\?t h'dfcsfierate white man 'wa-s
after hirf senlp: ' He smiled and shook
his head, relates the Kansas City
Journal. A few days later we were
talking to the white man, when the
Indian came up to join the gi'oup.
He had spotted the stranger and
knew him by sight. Without saying
a word to him he walked up within
arm's reach and struck the white
man iu tbe face with a rough, heavy
glove. He paused for a few seconds
and hit him again. "Ugh!" he ex
claimed as he wheeled around and
walked away. The white man looked
at the Indian in amazement, but
made no show of resentment. Later
in the day. when we asked the Indian
why he didn't follow up the insult
with blows, he told us the white man
was a coward. In explaining how he
knew it he said the man's "jaw drop
ped" when he struck him in the face
tbe second time with the glove, and
that this, with the Indian, was an un
failing sign of cowardice.

For once in his life, says the Chi

of the world have been operated on
