DAVID HERBERT THE MAN. IMPOSSIBLE FOR HIM TO KEEP AWAY FROM INTOXICANTS TREATED WIFE AND CHILDREN CRUELLY WHILE DRUNK. David Herbert, ex-minister of the gospel and now common drunkard and wife beater, again faced Judge Con Terse in the city court this morning, charged with intoxication. It was the fcixth time Herbert had been arrested cn this charge in less than two years. "Guilty," he mumbled in answered to e. query of the prosecutor. "Ten dol lar and costs and thirty days," said the court. Herbert was then led away to the county jail, which is now almost home to him. How the man fell from grace is an Id story a will power too weak to overcome an inherited appetite for in toxicants. Of his better days the man has little or nothing to say. He has a wife and two children and his treat ment of them while crazed with drink has on several occasions brought the authorities to his rescue. It is stated that his faithful wife has at last deserted him, being forced to do so for the protection of herself and children. Herbert is au intelligent man and well educated. His case is one of the peculiar ones that frequent ly puzzles the police. Lat summer. Herbert, while serv ing time In the county jail, escaped from that institution -with Karl Hunt ington and Harry Marshall.

NEW PHILLIPS. Week of March 2 Vaudeville. GENNETT. March 1$ (Matinee and Night) "The Man of the Hour." Vaudeville at the Phillips. What is believed to be an extra good vaudeville bill was started at the New Phillips this afternoon to run throughout the week. As stated in previous notices, it has been very sel dom that Manager Murray has man aged to get as many clever perform ers together on one bill, and he is con gratulating himself in this regard. The range in style of entertainment is great and includes spiritualistic and cabinet work, an illustrated song, a German comedy sketch, horizontal bar work, vocal work, motion pictures, and a playlet depicting southern life. It should be remembered that starting with tonight, there will not be a dou ble bill at night, but one performance beginning at 8:15. The only excep tion to this is on Saturday night, when the program will be presented twice. "Man of the Hour." Speaking of "The Man of the Hour" which will be presented at the Gen nett on Saturday, March 14, matinee and night, the St. Louis Globe Demo crat says: That the praise which greeted the first appearance of "The Man of the Hour," was merited is proved by the fact that he is with us again after a tour of the country eat has been ex ceedingly successful. In all the large cities, and no doubt some of the smaller ones, his great sermon against graft a powerful and absorbing ser mon has been preached and the peo ple have applauded it and pronounced it wholesome in material and in the lead of most dramatic efforts in so far as Interest is concerned. Last night ! it was again delivered before a St. ! Louis congregation, at the Olympic, ! and was given a greeting that would have honored a brand-new effort. ; "The Man of the Hour" deals with ! materials that are familiar to every ' one who reads the American newspa pers and takes an interest in munici pal government. We are all familiar with the ways of grafters and have met the sort of men who figure in the play; have seen them trapped just as they are in the play; and have seen them punished more severely than thxse in tn? play are. So it wins like a story of our neighbors and in terests us just as much. The nearest approach to a stranger in the cast is the heroic "man of the hour" him self. His type must strike the more cynical as altogether too ideal, but it is worth while for amusement purpos es in spite of that.

What stopped the old housewife hab it of taking the tablecloth out after each meal and shaking it on the ground to the ediflcatiou of the dog. cat, chickens and birds? As a boy we used to delight in that shake, especial ly if a comely matron or a pretty girl had hold of the cloth her body swayed so gracefully as she handled it. No other motion, not even the rhythmic dance, set off her figure to better ad vantage, and the minxes knew it and always managed to give those flirts when admirers were handy by.

Steubenville, 0., March 2 Prohibi tion will enliven the coming campaign in this state as it has not stirred up the "politicians for many years. The Ohio senate has passed the amended Rose county local option bill. This bill provides that when "0 per cent of the qualified electors of the county shall petition for a special election it shall be ordered held in not less than twenty or more than thir ty days after the filing of the petition. The result is to be reported to the Common Pleas court, and the court record, if showing against the sale, is to be taken as prima facie evidence that the sale or giving away of intox icants after thirty days is prohibited BREWERS GAVE A BIG SUM TO AID FIGHT Raise Million Dollars to pose Prohibition.

At a meeting of the Texas Brewers' Asso ciation today $1,000,000 or as much as may be needed was pledged to com bat prohibition in Alabama, Georgia, and Mississippi. The Texas brewers believe that a crusade against disre putable resorts and unclean saloons is the most effective weapon to fight prohibition and they urge their breth ren iu those stated to apply this method.

"March conies in like a lunib. It will go out like a lion," luotL'd the oldest inhabitant, looking wise. The rain fall began early Sat urday night and spasmodically contin ued until late Sunday night. At the water works pumping station it was reported thut the rainfall amounted to .05 of an inch. This morning there was a winter j chill to the atmosphere and Miss i Spring in her abreviated garments shivered considerably. The weather prophets state that the backbone of winter has not ye' b en fractured and the wise oues are not packing away ! there cold weather garments in moth balls. People of Wayne county recaeruberj that ' on March 1 last year Miss , Spring's arrival was heralded by the! most balmy weather but that she was frozen to d-ath the later end of the season.

In one of the suburbs of London there is a wholesale firm the senior member of which may be known as Mr. Blank. The firm has two traveling salesmen a single man, receiving shillings per week, and the other a married man, drawing 2 per week. A short time ago the single man, be ing in the shop and looking over mat ters, discovered that the married sales man was receiving 10 shillings per. week more salary than himself, while be (the single man) was selling more goods. He called Mr. Blank's atten-' tion to this and suggested that, aa he was selling more than the other fel low, he should at least receive aa much pay. Tho senior partner acknowledged the apparent inconsistency and assured his man that be would look into It and If the statement were correct he would make matters right. Another week rolled by. and when the single waa came to draw his sal ary from the bookkeeper he was sur prised to find only 30 shillings pas3d out to him the same as before. He de murred. The bookkeeper insisted be had received no Instructions to raise his pay aud referred him to the ajor ernor. Approaching Mr. Blank, be said: "You remember, sir. I spoke to yon last week about my salary, statins; that, while I was selling more goods than the other traveler. I was receiv ing less pay. and I thought I should receive as much as he did. You assur ed me you would look into it and make matters right." "Yes." said Mr. Blank, "I remember your mentioning the matter, and I made it right, didn't I? "Why, no; I don't see how you have, as the bookkeeper Las just paid me the same amount as before. I can't see how that Is making It right, sir." "You don't understand," said the senior partner. "I have made it right. You thought you ought to have a much pay as the other man. ani I have made? it right by cutting the other fellow's pay down. London Tit Bits.
