Down there they arc chicken hearted, too-too utter-ly-too humane for anything. And it is at a heavy cost to tax payers. Dick Biggs, a son of Ham, stole an empty box, worth probably 25 cents. He was promptly "yanked up" be fore his Honor and given a six ty (60) days sentence in the county jail. Sixty days, court cost and railroad fare and just to think, that is pie, yes pie and plum duff for Dick, while widows and orphans are scrape ing their pennies together to foot the bill A whipping post would stop such devilment and reduce taxes. Some day the Democrat will pound the Whipping Post idea into the peoples heads and it will be come a reality instead of an ir ridescent dream.
