Editor Constitution Your editorial in Sundays Con stitution on The Only Way To Deal with the Loafing Class" is a timely article You might have taken up the subject of the little boys who loaf around the streets and public places, who are nuisances and menaces to everybody. They should be picked up in time, before their criminal education is complete. Thus saving th s state time, money and human lives. They should be whipped and their parents fined for not providing these boys with honest work. As for the class of loafers you referred to and the plans you set forth, there should not be lost another hour in carry- MARK TWAIN WAS 8PANK KD .

Reflections of a Bachelor. If tire average man's head had half as much in it as his wife imagines it has it would burst open'every time he start ed to read thenewspaper. It wouid'be a good thing for the world if every woman had to stand on her head to tell a piece of slander the way the mosquito does that carries mal aria when it wants to bite. A woman in Ohio dropped dead at an auction the other day. Probably tne woman she didn't like who lives across the street was there and failed to raise her bid on something that she w as just dying to get. When a woman gets to be vice-president of the United States, the way the woman suf fragists want it, there will have to be some plush .curtains hung back of the desk in the Senate chamber, so the baby can have its dinner. New York Press. from the New York Timet. "Mark Twain'" father was an ornithologist. He has sev eral friends who were also en-j thusiasts on the subject of birds. Whenever any oue of ; them discovered a rara avis it j was the custom to have a con , saltation. Mark had beeu a witness of several of these in-1 quests and had noted the de light the old men took in dis cussing a new-found ? pecimen. j One day it occurred to him to provide the Hannibal ornitholo gists with a real circus in the form of a bird. He killed a crow and also a barnyard rooster. Plucking out the tail feathers for those of the crow, producing a unique effect. When he had the specimen nice ly prepared he went to his father and. handing it to him said: ' Here, father, is a very curi ous bird I shot. I thought you would be interested in it." The old gentleman gazed up on the specimen with astonish ment. That evening the orni thologists of Hannibal were as sembled in Mr Clemens' parlor. The rare specimen was put be fore them. The discussion was learned and long. The opinions expressed were various, One thought the bird was an off shoot of the bird of paradise family: others had equally ridiculous notion as to its an cestry. But there was one who refused to be swerved by the peculiarity of the bird's tail from the judgment that it was of the crow family. "Why, just Iook here," he said, lifting the bird by its tail feathers. He got no further The feathers came out. There was a quick closing of the door. Mr. Clemens stai ted to leave the room.

A cat gave birth to live kittens at the White House last week and a boy was told to kill them. Did he? Not by a long shot, he knew the tfool side of human nature. He sold the five White House kittens at $ each and then bought fifty-six more on the open market and sold them as White House kittens at $5 each. He busted the market before he quit buying at 10 cents and selling for $5. When ready for ice leave your order at Sharp & Donley's the day before. H. W. James.

It was the Republican party and and Neidring house, cougressmau from St. Louis and tin plate manufacturer, that put a duty of 2 cents per pound ou block tin and reserved (4) lour months time to import three car loads of it lrom Wales and stuck the tariff with the L cent import on the tin plate before the block tin arrived. It was done for the Home Market. And now they have the gall to boast ot exports, which clearly shows the lolly and robbery of the people by the tariff. The tariff on tin sel, is a fraud and sell.
