(Nashville American) The man who carries a revolver less than twenty-four inches long in Ala bama is a violator of the law. Over in South Carolina the lawful gun is only twenty inches long. Last year 250 citizens of South Carolina were .remov ed from this to a probably more peace ful world by the aid of the ready re volver and the object of the law is to limit the outputofdeceasedcitizens. limit the output of deceased citizens. A two-foot gun is apt to prove incon venient for the poor, cowardly whelps who fear to go about tmong their neighbors in time of peace without a hidden weapon. The two-foo gun is a little too short to carry on the shoul der and most too long to be concealed in a pocket of hlster. But there will be -plenty of violators of the law, altlio if we mistake not, it means time in the penitentiary. In Harlem. (Judge) "Have you any children?" demanded the landlord.
