A policeman with the long hairs of Tam many tn his teeth and the peat curling up from his slow toei, allowed, this morning, he did not care a "siller baubee" for newspaper rcliections on olucers. A lunch at hod carry' log or a Delmonlco course at his original occupation as a long-handled shovel lifter on the railway might convince him that, like McClary's ram, he Is getting up "'above his business" In leaving the sheep to run with the We Can't Walt. If the railroad companies, Irrespective of wnat the Ideas may be concerning the pro priety of giving news to the city papers would only tell tbe whole truth without 'any palter log, the traveling public would rather trust the dally journals for their bluntness than the rail road agents lor their vaccination and tardiness, A delsyed Item injures the company so much mat irequenUy It stands in its own light. Hereafter the Lioht will take the reports of ticikuui.ciuiug smain-ups ana aisasiert and publish at 20 cents per line a decade, hence the slow willed statement of the rail roads themselves. PERSONAL.

John Gill, was brought In this morning from the Sunset depot by Officer Chadwell, who arrested him on a charge of theft. John appropriated a pocket book, belonging to a gentleman running a lunch stand at the depot, and money inside to the amount of $25 glad dened John's eyes. However, the bare walls of the county jail will make Mr. Gill think whether It was worth while to have got away with so little for nothing. Haerellglous Work. Dean Richardson informed a Light report er this morning that the communion plates which had been stolen from St. Mark's cathe dral some time ago, were found cut to pieces lour miles out of town.

The goblets taken at the. same time were found unhurt in Travis park. The Price of Southern Kisses. From tbo Chicago Times. A Nashville man kissed a school teacher, and a jury of the vicinage gave the lady $800 damages. This, however, is a fancy figure, and should not be regarded as regulating the price of kisses In Tennessee. There are no doubt pretty, luscious-mouthed girls in the old volunteer State, who. for and in consider ation ol love and allection and (11) In hand paid f the payment whereof is hereby acknowl edged), could be kissed until the backbone would curl up Into Inexactrlcable knots in ratification of the blissful bargain, and who even then would feel that they had not more than half earned the money. We make this statement because II tbe ssoo story gets afloat the Northern press will raise a Bowl and charge that a new scheme has been set on foot at the South to keep off Immigration.
