Charles Carson (at least, that is the name he is wearing at present) is doing a 15-day penance stunt on the city rock pile. (The city hav ing no regularly established rock pile, the village streets and alleys are being utilized instead. Carson is a temporary resident of Mountain Home Whence he came, or whither he goeth, deponent sayeth not. At any rate, he had been devoting much time at the shrine of Bacchus, and as a result the suggestion occurred to him that he might improve the personal ap pearance of a few men by slicing off their heads with a razor. He had the razor—had it in his right hand, thrust into his overcoat pocket. All he lacked was a proper subject. Several men who appeared to need fixing were approached on the subject, but each one Beemed to entertain some sort of unreasonable prejudice against allowing any al terations to be made in his physi cal construction. This unanimous reluctance so annoyed Carson that he finally (so it seemed) decided to carry out his ideas in spite of all objections. At this juncture, however, someone telephoned to the Sheriff's office and Deputy Winter Bwooped down on Carson with the majesty of the law in his southeast pocket and a [determined glitter in both eyes. He noted the location and general attitude of Carson's right hand, and the way he brought that self same hand (with the razor it was clutching) into public view wasn't slow. And the way Winter de posited that hobo in J. Henry Ross' strong box was an interesting example in rapid transit, razor blade contained numerous blood spots. (There was a rumor to the effect that a fight had oc curred in a hobo camp outside the city limits Wednesday night.) And thus it came about that when Winter explained matters to the court, His Honor decided that fifteen days at hard labor would he the proper tonic for Carson, explains how Deputy Winter hap pened to effect a sort of impromptu chaingang, consisting of Carson and Ed. Nelson (who is doing three months on petty larceny convic tion), the said chaingang being put to work cleaning streets and alleys. The This Notice To Sheepmen. Quarantine Line.
