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

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,

President Roosevelt bids fair
to have a new C.ibioet around bin

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
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

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

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

is not a Democratic paper in the
city without the Every Evening

what's the odds so you arc happy.
The mau that lighted a candle

likened to some merchants doing
business in the city of Wilmingtou.
