Someone, who known just what u modest retiriug sort of duck the edi tor of the Register is, sent; us the following through the postoflice this week: “The plain plug of a man is the happiest man in the world after all. His pants may bag at the knees and he may not be acquainted with tbe latest style in chin whiskers; he may not know the thrilling joy of having a brand of cigars named in hie houor, but as ho pulls along through life ho got* about as much satisfaction and calm out of it as his most distin guislied friend. Ho knows that thoro is no crank waiting around the cor uer to shoot a hole through his ana tomv or bury a choose knife up to the hilt in his person, Ho knows that when ho sits down to his frugal meals that ho eats his pio with per fect impunity, for there is no danger of it having boon spiked with rough on rats by the cook. No doubt it is a lot of fun to have yourself mis quoted in the newspapers and know as you hang up your crown at night and crawl into your luxuraint rat hole that the police forco is standing in your front yard to keep the admiring public' from throwing brickbats through your windows, but notwith standing all those ardent joys the th* common everyday chap who wears a hickory shirt and that eight years out of date gets tho most real pleasure out of lifo in a long run.” To Prohibition Voters Editor Register:— At the recent state convention, the undersigned was appointed to take charge of the work of organizing the prohibitionists in your country, and ns there are many prohibitionists — ministers, church members and mem bers of the W.

Its an III Wind Blows, etc. Nothing Jit, nil happened at Oyster liny for twenty four hours but n lo comotive whistle. It was “written up”. The correspondents were in n most despondent frame of mind. The president’s goldjring had not been found. Miss Alice Roosevelt had not stirred out of the house; nor Kerrnit, Theodore or Archie. There had boon no arrivals or departures. Then that locomotive whistle began to blow. It started its shriek across the sandy stretches long before it reached Oys ter Bay. It came into town without a moments cossasion; the locomotive drew up at the depot and stood still but did not pauso in its ear piercing outcry. All Oyster Bay turned out to see what was the matter. Was the town afire or bad an accident hap pened to the president? It transpired when the engineer’s voice could be heard above the clamor, that in jerk - ing open the valve in starting from Jamaica ho had broken it. It being impossible to plug it up, the ongino had gone on, wailing, all the way to Ouster Buy, and continued its lam entation after it arrived there. It was a windfall to the correspondents.
