AS YOU LIKE IT. Some Stray Leares From a Reporter's Note BooK. A good story is being told about the manasrer of one of the freaks now being exhibited at the Company G car-f mjval. A few evenings ago a well known local doctor called at City hall and, of course, though., he would look the freaks over and pick-up a few points that might be useful to him. With a knowing smile he approached the manager, who, they say, looks omething like the freak he repre sents. The doctor quizzed him for, a hort time about his appearance, and finally asked him "How long have you been this way, my friend?" The man ager looked at him for a moment, and then blurted out: "Oh, it isn't me; I ain't it. There's the freak ovr there." The laugh that greeted this remark wag heard in all parts of the hall, ana the expert moved on to the next freak. The resources of an up-to-date jour nalist are unlimited, as the following will show: "I've got to have some thing to fill out this column with," said the foreman of the Spiketown Bliz iard, poking his head into the editorial sanctum. 'That's all there is about 't. I've run in all the dad 'ads' and all the catch lines, and I've slugged every thing mt until there isn't even a piece ' of wood reglet left in the office, and I am short yet a half a dozen lines or Ittore." Whereupon Editor. Clugston at down and wrote as follows: ow ing to the crowded state of our col umns this week w are obliged to omit several interesting communications now standing in type. Friends will please bear with us. Advertisers must accommodated. Until the pressure on our columns has eased up cor respondents -will please write briefly nd tlck to simple statement of facts." Business boonjs when it is skillfully boomed, and seldom does take on a great spurt unless something is done to push it, remarks on exchange. The best way to push a business is by ad vertising it, and good business men agree that the most effective advertis ing is newspaper publicity. It costs more than some other kinds of public ity for the first outlay, but when the results are taken' Into consideration the cost is seen to be very small In deed. Newspaper publicity should be made use of in the way to produce the most beneficial effect, and this In Itself demands no little skill, either the result of personal experience or that nt nthors. Ther are so many "ctoc- or otners. xnere are u tors Of advertising" nowadays that - the whole subjtct may be learned in ertense at little cost, and "ready-to use" ads may be bought at a minimum fee. There is no trouble" in getting good ads; the difficulty comes in decid ing how and where to use them. , : On one occasion when President Lincoln Tilted General Grant, General Porter who was General Grant's sec retary' at the time, says that "three tiny kittens were crawling about the tent. The mother had died, and the Uttlo wanderers were expressing their jrriof tw mwinsr nlteously." Mr Lin coln picked them up, took them on his 1bt stroke their soft fur and mur-, iap,,roKe inw oii ua hXengoo Ms passional BSs, 85 -Colonel, I hop you aracter worthy of the bar's emula. wlU 2 that these little motherless tton- His clearness and grasp of judg waifs lrrven Plenty of milk and pent, united with a quick and method SSated Wndly? replied: .

It was a curious sight at an army headquar ters, upon the eve of a great military crisis in the nation's history, to see the hand which had signed the commission of all the heroic men who served the cause of the Union, from the general-In-chief to the lowest lieutenant, ten derly caressing three tiny stray klt tens. It well illustrated his kindness, "which wap mingled with the grandeur 'of his nature. STtth Wit 3ninsr Foi Robber. ST. GEORGE, S. O, Feb. 13.-Two to embers of a band of robber who rode into town, intending to rob the tank and postoffiee, were killed by eit , teens.

Mm. lorwii Aeqaittad and I m Woaan, WASHINGTON, Feb. 18. Before court adjourned in the postoffiee trial Mrs. Martha J. Lorena was a free wo man. Justice Pritchard, acting on a motion of Mr. Kumler, decided that there was not sufficient evidence to hold ber and directed the jury to find a veruiot of not guilty. She simply smiled at the announcement and was warmly congratulated by her eounsel and friends. Justice Pritchard decision came inN mediately after all the evidence was in. Several witnesses in rebuttal testified, one of whom was John B. Tulles, the stenographer who took down the ques tions and replies at the time Machea was under investigation in General Bristow's office, May j 27, 1903. The witness, under a searching cross ex amination, admitted that he had made 8 number of errors in transcribing his notes. coaomicdl ' BOARD OF PUBLIC WORKS. Petitioners for Free Standpipes Given Leave to Withdraw. The board of public works met yes terday in the mayor's office, Mayor El ton presiding and all the members being present. It was' Lincoln day, and in honor of the occasion the mayor passed around the cigars. This and the fact that it started out as an open session delighted the reporters, and while Jotting down what was going on they kept saying something now and then about tbe method of conducting business in the department of public works-compared with the dark lantern .seances of other municipal bodies? un til Commissioner Brown put them out of business by a motion to go into ex ecutive session, and the next thing the scribes knew they were out in te cold vowing vengeance upon the men whom but a few moments before they couldn't praise too highly. The mayor stepped out and consoled the weeping trio of newspaper men by assuring them that he would see that none of them got scooped. 1 The petition of the American Pin Co et al asking that the charge for stand pipes and automatic sprinklers be abol ished was taken from the table and knocked out in one round, Commission er Goss moving that the board recom mend to the aldermen that the peti tioners be given leave to withdraw, and the - motion being carried unani mously. One of the members told a reporter that it was the "cheekiest" petition ever presented to the city gov ernment, adding that all things consid ered the charge for tuis service was reasonable and but one or two parties ever found fault with it. The petition of Chester Chin for per mission to hang out a sign at 756 North Main street was referred to the super intendent of streets for Investigation and report. It was voted that the agent of City hall be authorized to rent the - - -the ladies of St Thomas's parish for the evening of May 6. It was voted that John J. McDonald, representing; the Foresters' committee, be given a rebate of $5o on the rent of the hall on account of peopteyturned away from their entertainment be cause of the new rules inaugurated relative to crowding In the hall. A bill of $288 from the A. C. Peck estate for work done eleven years ago on Riverside street was referred to Mr Cairns for investigation and re port. It was some arrangement be tween the old water commissioners and Mr Peck. A part of the bill is for interest and amounts to $107.62. It was voted to notify the aldermen that the board wishes to proceed with the work 6f making plans for sewage disposal, but that it has no funds and requesting them to make an appropri ation of $10,000 for that purpose. Mr Jackson hoped that this was not ask ing for an appropriation that the law yers could get hold of, whereupon Mr Goss said that legal plans didn't dispose of the sewage, to which Mr Jackson replied that he was aware of that, but they' did dispose of the? money. The. engineer was requested to submit plans for sewage disposal. It wag voted to report favorably on the communication relative to high water service, recommending that so much of it as pertains to the use of the Bast Mountain reservoirs be taken up as soon as possible,- the estimated expense being $100,000. x -,'x It was voted that the application for the extension of the trolley along the Cheshire road be granted, subject to the following conditions: "1.
