This is the time of the year
when the fool killer is snooping
around looking for the fellow
who used an overdose of kero
sene in getting a rousing fire
started on cold mornings, and
it must keep him pretty busy,
because throwing kerosene on
the smouldering embers of last
night's fire is quite general and
is a pretty sure way to start
This is the age of women. We
find all the avocations, profes

It Is a well' known' fact that
the most severe critics of the
public schools and the churches
are the people who have never
taken the trouble to enter the
doors of the institutions that
they criticise. They Etand out
side and bark instead of entering
and learning for themselves the
truth about matters. . It is far
easier to set up a hue and cry
than to make a thorough inves
tigation. Tuesday a party by the name
of Joe Schrum was arrested
charged with having forged a
check in the name of II. H. Fray,
for $10. He plead guilty and
was sent to the penitentary for
five years, this fine being the
least penalty that could be as
sessed for that crime. There
was another charge against him
for forging another cheek for
$20. which was not pushed
against him.
The parent who believes every
word the son or daughter tell
tiiein in regard to the conduct
of the teacher, is very likely to
think ill of the teacher and with
out just reason. It is natural
for youth to be prejudiced and to
resort punishment even if it is
just. Many a good school is
spoiled by the parents upholding
pupils when the proper treat
ment would be to up-end them
and use the coal shovel.
Louis Tobler, formerly of Jack
son, but who has been a resident
of this city for the past twenty

ary 15th, 1913, at 1 o'clock p. m.,
after a lingering illness with
Bright's disease. The funeral
was held Thursday, afternoon at
3 o'clock conducted by the Elks
lodge, of which Mr. Tobler was
a member. Interment was in
the City cemetery. Mr. Tobler
leaves a wife and two children.

Under the new parcels post
law, a farmer residing on a rural
route desiring a steak for dinner,
can order it by telephone from a
dealer in the city or town in
which his postoffice is located
and have it delivered for five
cents. Or he can get it from
any point within fifty miles for
eight cents. As soon as the
possibilities cf the new arrange
ment become generally known
the facilities of the postoffice
are sure to be taxed to the limit
in the interest of retail trade.

tion being cut off between here

ble to get word to Dr. Schoen,
and Attorney Orren Wilson act
ed as Coroner in his place.

Thought She Was in the Box.
An old man walked into an
office (we will not undertake to
give names, place or date.) and
askd the office man if he want
ed to buy some butter. The of
fice man said: "1 don't know; I
will ask my wife." The afore
said office man went to the tele
phone and called up his wife and
asked her about the butter in
question, but she wanted no but
ter. The old man was accord
ingly notified, when he became
furiously angry ami said: "Why
did you not tell me that you
wanted no butter and be dene
with it? 1X you think you tan
make me believe that on keep
your wife in that little box? If
you'll conio outside 1 will whip
you on less ground than it would
require for a goose to hatch a
nest of goslings."
