The 'Iayor's Court.
Mayor Klett&.er during the past sev
eral days has had before him a number
of cases of negro women charged with
disorderly conduct, andl has pretty well
succeeded in making them'resolve to do
better in the future. Yesterday morn
ing he had several of these cases before
him, and a nice little amount was turned
into the treasury.
Mayor Klettner in conversation the
other day stated that he is often at a
loss to know whether in cases like these
it would not be better to impose a small
fine and one that the offenders may be
able to pay. When a comparatively
large fine is imposed, and it is usually
deserved, these women are not able to
pay, and they are placed in the guard
house. Here there is no work at which
they can be p)ut, and it costs the city
fully $5 per month to feed them and
provide bedding. ~The point Mayor
Klettner Wanted to make was that there
should be some kind of work provided
at which thdy -could be put in case they
do not pay the fine, some work whereby
they could be made to support them.
selves. As matters now stand con
finement in the guard house is very
light punishment and not very muecl

A Runaway Match in West End Causes
a Deal of Trouble and is Followed by,
Another-Mayor's Court Brought
Into the Transaction.
There have been swveral sensational
denouements to" the rather romantic
marriage of Mr. Clyde Longshore and
Miss Eula Rikard, in West End, on
last Thursday afternoon.
As reported in the last issue of The
Herald and News, the couple were
joined together without the-cohsent of
the young lady's uncle and guardian,
Levi Gruber. Miss Rikard and Mr.
Longshore were working in the mill
when they finally decided to take each
other for better or for worse. And it
did not take them long to put their in
tentions into effect. Going down stairs
on the elevator, they sent for Magis
trate J. H. Chappell, and on the spot he
soon made them man and wife.
When the affair was reported to Gru
ber, to say that he was mad is putting
it mildly. He was mad with Miss Rik
ard for getting married, if married she
was. He was mad with Mr. Danielson
because he took the couple down on the
elevator. Then he decided that the
girl wasn't really married, and got mad
with everybody who told him she was.
And the language he used in stating his
thoughts wasn't exactly what is taught
in the Sunday Schools. Final11 the
whole of his wrath centered upon the
bride, and continued to be poured out
in this direction, even after she had
promised that she wouldn't do it again.
Then he got too hot for words and
struck the girl.
Things by this time had come to an
interesting pass. A relative of Long
shore, standing near by, espoused the
cause of his kinsman's bride, and Long
shore himself went for the police force,
or as many of them as he could find.
When Messrs. Franklin and Carter
went over they found not exactly a
pretty scene. Gruber was sitting near
the reservoir, -the bride on one side of
him, and her sister on the other. Gru
ber's son, Jeff, was standing near
brandishing a knife which looked as
though it might recently have been the
mainstay of some butcher shop, and at
the same time in very offensive lan
guage promising to protect his papa,
and. to do various things to any who
might be so bold as to oppose his slight
est wish. Soon after the policemen
reached the scene he decided that one
knife was not enough and dived deep
down- in his pocket for another.
It was a pity to put a ,stop to such a
pretty and harmless little drama, but
Messrs. Franklin and Carter are at
times a little averse to watching plays,
especially when they have no galleries
to look after, and they put a stop to
the whole matter by arresting both
Gruber and his son. Mayor Klettner
next day gave Gruber $2.00 and the
young man $5.00 and it was thought
the matter was entirely ended.
But there was one other party that
had not been taken into consideration.
This was Miss Rikards' sister, who
had witnessed the whole affair. She,
too,-had been caught in the net of an
undying love, and was a young lady
with too keen a sense of humor to let
such an opportunity pass. Besides, she
wasn't going to be anything but a star
In an$' performance, no matter of -howv
great reputation. So Friday afternoon,
she, too, ran away and was happily
married to Mr. Will Williams.
And thus the matter ended, and Gru
ber has two less on his list of support
ers, and two less to-whom to carry din
ner. What a feeling of sadness the

Notice to Taxpayers.
The county treasurer has called the
attention of the taxpayers to the Act
fixing a penalty to be added to all taxes
not paid on or before the 31st clay of
December. The governor and comp
troller general have already refused to
extend th'e time. Whether or not the
legislature will do so is a matter for
conjecture, but from present indica
tions it is hardly p)robable that it will
take any action.
Why so) Popul.a.,
The popularity of "Clifton" flour is
due to its unequaledl quality-absolute
ly p)ure, retainmng all the nutritive and
healthful qualities of the finest selected
wheat. Call for "Cliff'ton" if you want
the purest and best. Call at either of
