Killed by a Sample
Several times, the Leader has referred
to the fact that the practice of throwing
samples of medicine, liquid and powder,
in the houses in this city was dangerous
and called the attention of the common
council to the necessity of adopting an
ordinance making it a misdemeanor to
do so. A young child came to her death
at Oconto by eating one of the samples
left at the home of her parents and the
father of the child has began an action
against the medicine company for $lO,
000, damages for the death of his child,
alleging that it was through the negli
gence of the medicine company that his
child came to her death. The father
should obtain a judgment for the amount
demanded to teach the medicine company
involved and other medicine companies,
that the practice must be discontinued.
Special Meeting of Cos. Board
In accordance with the provisions of a
resolution adopted at the last regular
meeting of the County Board of Super
visors held last November, a special ses
sion of the Board will be held beginning
Wednesday, May 2*5, a su ' cient number
of the members elect having signed the
request for such a meeting. It is the
proper thing to do, for at the special
meeting the Board can be reorganized,
committee app anted and thus expedite
business at the regular session and save
time.

WATERTOWN. JEFFERSON COUNTY. WIS. APkIL 23. 1909.
For An Idle Moment
‘ Annie, where’s papa?” -
“He’s upstairs, asleep.”
“Were yon upstairs, dear?”
“No, ma.”
“ Then how do you know he’s asleep?”
“1 heard him doing it. He’s sleeping
out loud.”
Among the western representatives in
Congress is one whose lack of personal
comeliness is the basis of personal banter
from his facetiously inclined colleagues.
“Why, Willie,” said one of them to the
4-year-old son of the congressman, “how
much you resemble your father!”
“Yes, sir,” responded Willie, with an
air of resignation. “Everybody says that,
but I don’t think I deserve it.”
Kendall had a son who was the pride
of his heart. One day he found one of
his favorite cherry trees cut down.
“Jack,” he said, “did you do that?”
With quivering lip Jack replied, “Fath
er, I can’t deceive you; I did not cut the
tree down; Billy Brown did it;but I boss
ed the job.”
Tears of joy sprang into the father’s
eyes “Bless you, my boy’” he said,
“Billy will be President of the United
States, but you will be chairman of the
national committee.”
Mrs. Belle de Rivera, president of the
Equal Suffrage League of New York,
said at a recent dinner:
“W’ed have had the suffrage, we wom
en, long ago. were it not that, where
women are concerned, men incline to he
a little unfair, a little churlish.
“Their treatment of women is on a
par with old Hiram Doolittle's treatment
of hits wife. He made her keep a cash
account, and he would go over it every
night, growling and grumbling like this:
“ ‘Look here,,Hanna —mustard plas'ers,
50 cents: three teeth extracted, $2.
There’s $2.50 in one day spent for your
own private pleasure. Do you think I'm
made of money?’ ”
A woman member of the bar In New
York gives to our correspondent the fol
lowing correspondence with the reserva
tion that no names shall be quoted:
“I am one of the few women.” she says,
“who can see a joke, even it aimed at
myself. Ido not feel that in this case I
came off first best.”
The first letter was from a man lawyer
and was as follows:
“Dear Miss Blank—We agree to the
compromise as proposed in your favor
of this date. Not because your client
hasajn*t right to such settlement, but
from the fact that we do not care to open
a congest with a woman lawyer.”
To which this reply was sent:
“Gentlemen—l note yours agreeing to
a settlement, although I can cot con
gratulate you on your gallantry in beg
ging the question. Like the original
Adam, you seem inclined to hide b hind
a woman’s petticoat.”
And the following letter closed the
correspondence;
“Dear Miss Blank—lf you will turn to
the early pages of Gene is, you will dis
cover that Eve did not wear a petticoat.”
Two telephone girls were talking over
the wire one afterno n. The subject of
the conversation was a lawn party,
which was to take place the next dav.
Both were discussing what 'they should
wear, and after five minutes had tome
to no decision.
In the midst of this important conver
sation a masculine voice interrupted,
asking humbly what number he had.
The lack of reply did nut squelch the
inquirer, for he asked again for the
number.
One of the girls became iudignant and
scornfully asked:
“What line do you think you are on,
anyhow?”
“Well,” said the man, “I am not sure,
but judging from what I have heard I
should say I was on a clothesline.”
“Didn't I tell 'e to feed that cit a
p und of meat every day until ye had
her fat?,' demanded n Irish shopkeeper,
nodding toward a sickly, emaciated cat
that was slinking through the store,
says Everybody’s.
“Ye did thot,” replied his assistant,
“eiT I’ve just been after feedin’ her a
pound of meat this very minute.”
“Faith an’l don’t believe ye. Biiug
me the scales.”
The poor cat was lifted into the scale*.
They balanced at exactly one pound,
“There!” exclaimed the assistant tri
umphantly. “Didn’t I tell ye she’d had
her pound of meat?”
“That’s right,” admitted the boss,
scratching his head. “That’s yer pound
of meat all right. But”—suddenly
looking up—“where the divvil is the
cat?”
When recently leasing a house in a
fashionable suburb of 1 hiladelphia the
lessee filled to examine closely the
terms of the lease. After a time his
landlord called and reminded him that
he was bound to do all the outside paint
ing at certain intervals. The tenant
protested in vain; so he engaged painters
and ordered them to paint the whole
front of the house red, white, and blue—
in stripes.
Mhen it was finished the neighbor
hood rose up in arm*, and the landlord
was frantic. The tenant politely ex
plained that there was nothing In the
I lease about the color, so he intended to
finish the job by painting the back of
the house green with large yellow spots.
The landlord saw that he had met his
match and within a few days the tenant
had anew lease iu which the landlord
undertook to do all the outside painting.

The English spoken b- the “Pennsyl
vau'a Dutch,” as the iuh bitauts of cer
tain districts in the tern part of the
state are popularly k .a, affords some
rare specimens of e: ;t ession. A man
who was passing a small house on the
outskirts of “Sou Besse em”—that is tne
nearest possible spelling of the local
pronunciation—heard the daughter of
the famiiy calling her brother in to
supper. “George,” she said, “you come
right in. now; pa’s on the table, and ma’s
half et!”

Dr. John Lovejoy El Ii tt, head worker
of Hudson Guild Settlement, in New
York, was lecturing some boys from the
water front on the doings of Nero. He
gave a vivid picture of the cruelty of the
emperor, and thought that he must have
fixed the idea of non-ethical deeds in the
minds of his hearers. Then he began
questions.
“Boys,” said the teacher, what do you
think of Nero?”
There was no reply, and the class
moved uueasily.
“Well, O’Brien, what do you think of
Nero? Would you say he was a good
man? Would you like to know him?”
No answer, and O’Brien looked long
ingly at the door.
ell, wasn't Nero a b. and man?”
“He never done nr • i i’ to me,” was
the unexpected response, reflecting the
Tammany policy of um butting in.
Anew railway was being made, and,
the design including i small farm, the
officers of the line paid a visit to the
owner, an old lady.
“Madam,” said the surveyor, „we un
derstand that you own this farm, and
it is my duty to inform you that our
new railway will run through your
barn.”
“Oh, will it? ’ said the lady. Well,
let me tell you that the last train will
have to be not later than 0 o’clock, be
cause you’ll not catch me sitting up
after that to open the doors for it cr
anything else. So mind.”
Charitable Institution
Did you ever stop to think, says an
Exchange, that a newspaper is a charit
able institution? Ther** are, however,
times when the chanty of the country
editor seems to have been wasted on
barren soil, and on such occasions he is
justified in refusing t<> again extend the
same charity to the f- oh persons who
fail to appreciate his eh i ts. Such cases
have come to almost everv editor in Iris
career. How many of them have sat up
nights studying how to assist some can
didate to laud the office he is seeking?
How many have spent column after
column of their paper telling of the vir
tues of certain lodges, cieties, churches
or individuals in an eft i t to assist them
over rough places in their journey?
How many have dom.led space and ad
vertising to the successful accomplish
ment of some public enterprise only to
have the saint church,* c-ety, individual
or officers of the enterprise as soon as
their ends wore obtained rush off to
another printing house m go to the city
to have all their priming done? This is
to often the case, and though it is hard
indeed to kill the cha ity of a country
newspaper man, such treatment is the
surest way to do so. Yes, the charity of
the couotiy editor for his fellows is
great, but even this may be overworked
and abused sometimes.
watertown Actors Please
Large Audience.
The presentation of “Finnigan’s For
tune” by the young members of St.
Henry’s parish in Watertown at the
Opera House last Friday evening was
witnessed by a large and appreciative
audience. Some of the actors displayed
considerable talent an I the plot of the
play with its many funny situations
served to make the evi-mng an enjoyable
one. The actors were generously ap
plauded and they certainly deserve
thanks for their kindness in giving this
