I College boys play such mad pranks that they often get into the Hutches of the police. A few days ago several Princeton boys painted teveral buildings in Trenton a bril ; iant carmine. They were arrested and have been expelled from college ^ot a very bright future for the »ys or anything for their parents o be proud of. Two students of Washington and Jefferson College it Washington, Pa., induldged in !be same kind of an escapade. Duffield Duncan, of Duluth, and |£arl C. McEIrov ot Washington, on Saturday night last procured a pot »f red paint and 111 flaming letters decorated the front of all the public buildings, churches, banks and numerous private residence. They were arrested and released on bail. This the boys call fun. It may be. but there is a difference between un and malicious mischief. During Barnum's palmy days he exhibited all over the world the Siamese twins, as one ot the great tst curiosities, and they drew big rrowds to see them walking about joined together by au appendix ilong the cartilege zipochide. Their successors, the Hindu twius, il&dica and Doodira, have had a wonderful operation performed, whereby thev have been cut apart. Tbe operation was pcrlormed by Dr. Doyen at the Hospital Trosseau 'o Paris. It became necessary be muse Doodicadeveloped tubercu.o lit and fell into a rapid decline. Phis so affected the health and ipirits ot the twiu sister that she • >eeame subject to fainting fits. Three eminent physicians assisted Dr. Doyen and the operation was ^successfully performed in 10 min ^^^tes. The use of fillets and anaes ^^Betics made the operation pracli ^^^■ly painless. H^HThe Levy Court does not appear V!o be in favor of paying the Arrow W imith Electric Company their bill »f $5000 for wiring and supplying -.lcctsic fixtures for the County Jourt House. The bill struck bsiog rather steep, in fact, the work should notbave been given out at such a price. Tbe county baa \ no such amount of money to throw v v*way upon such extravagances, at ft:« preseuttime. Still, it the work was ordered and the b ; ll is all right, we can't see how the Levy Court is going to get out of paving It. At this rate electricity conies high, entirely too high to supercede gas as au illumiuator in the county buildings, The members of the Levy Court will exaraiue the bill before paying it. Tle Street and Sewer Directors should set about having numerous pavements in the city repaired and all properties underdrained, This would obviate the many bad places from freezing up and make walk ing positively dangerous during the present cold snap. There is no excuse now for the refuse ot the kitchen lunuing over tho sidewalks. All such nuisances should be abated at once, For the thousands of dollars spent in Wilmington on our streets, there is no reason why the sidewalks should not be iu good condition. They are repaired at the expense of the owner whose properly they abut. Then again the streets could be considerably cleaner by putting a tew meu to work and spending a lew dollars which would be well spent, Oh gracious! fairly Indeed he did! Muck-a-muck! lie tdid himseli! Yes he did!

Hit cabinet ia- going piece* a* f*st a* that of Cheater A. Arthur, who succeeded Garfield. The resignation of two of McKin ley '* appointee* have been accept ed, the Postmaster General and Secretary of the Treasury, and their successors have been appoint ed. The report is that the .Secre tary ot the Navy is to give up office very shortly, and this will sec three of the old cabinet go within six mouths oi President Rouse veil's regime. The next change will be that of Mr. Hitchcock, Secretary ot the Interior, who will go in t l, e near future, and report says others will hand in their resignations, until there is a new cabiuet of President Roosevelt's seleclion. In view of the tact that the Pres ident said be expected, and, in fact wanted the hearty co-operation ot the members of M cKiuley 'seabinet, it may have some deeper signifi cance than what appears on the surface. The two shrewd and known as good politi cians the country over. The Pres ident is evidently layiug his plans to succeed himself as the Republi can nominee in 1904, and he is look ing out ior the States that throw him the most strength when the Republican Convention meets to nominate his successor. Coming events will have much to do with the nomination of President Roose velt to succeed himself, shown himself a strong man and! has thus far made a good Chief Ex-! ecutivc. In (act it looks at this writing, at if he had bowled every other candidate out of the race. Even Senator Uauna, Allison and Spooner had the Presidential bee buzzing in their bounds but the action or the President in get ting them out of tue Cabinet has put all such ideas out ot their heads. It looks like the rough rider would have a clear course and capture the nomination with out a struggle. He should have uo trouble in being re-eiected os he was a strong ~.andidale on the ticket with McKiuley. He has thus lar been a lucky man or in the hands of Providence. to uew men are can He hue I s Vice-President. The Republican istbeonly daily paper in the city that is run by ; men} who depend on its earnings 1 lor their livelihood. Every other paper is controlled by men who do not depend on the receipts of their paper to enable them to fill their baskets on market days. The peo ple apparently do not these facts but they are true nevertheless, ; Three ot the dailies are owned j bv millionaires who have them as! playthings or to further their po-i litical ambitions. By the use of j tbe paper they hope to educate the people who take them to their po litical belief. Strange that there is not a Democratic paper in the city without the Every Evening owns up to this impeachment. But what's the odds so you arc happy. The mau that lighted a candle and placed it under a bushel is likened to some merchants doing business in the city of Wilmingtou. They purchase their stock ot goods and make a possible show in their store windows and expect the peo ple to know what they are offering lor sale at bargains.
