His Partner Absconded.
The usual smiling countenance of
Arthur Oaks, prominent in "culli d"
social circles of this city, is i ver
clouded, and he is making perl ocal
trips to Kansas City with som w In
his heart, blood lu his eye and a
razor In his sleeve. Thereby hangs
a title.
For some time Oaks has been col
lectlng poultry, game aud produce,
taking them to that city and with the
usststance of a partner of dusky
shade, disposing of them at a sub
Btantlal profit.
Last week, going to much trouble
and expense, he managed to secure
a tine coop of the festive Opossum,
about twenty in all, and shipping
tbem to his partner In the city, re
tired for the time being in anticipa
tion of the fortune the sale of this
shipment was to bring hlin. But
he waited in vain. At last beurlDg
nothing from his unpunctual business
associate, Oaka hied him to the city,
but his partner could not be fouud,
nor has he been located np to date.
When Oaks does find the gentleman,
But that will be another story.
In Times of Peace.
Con. Roach, In his paper, The Car
thage Democrat, enters the folio wing
protest against the proposed revenue
stnmp In times of peace:
"Ever business man remembers
that revenue abomination of the
Spanish-American war,, the revenue
stamp, but it was born with a cer
tain degree of equanimity as the war
was felt to be in a righteous caut-e
and grumblings were forgotten when
reading of Dewey's victory and Hob
son's heroism. But stamps on checks
and legal documents now in time of
peace simply as a revenue measure
to get money direct from the average
cltlxen to meet the extravagant ex
pendltures of the proflgate two bil
lion dollar Congresses the Republi
can party has been giving us is an
other matter. It remains to be seen
whether Mr. Everyday Citizen will
accept the nuisance and burden with
out protest."
