W. »■ K*RTON. i.r.SHEWUAN. MORTON & SIIEWMAN Publisher*. — Advertising rates made inown on application. Friday, Jan. 1» 1»97. ■ " A t—«»« rfipioN forbidding the wMfing of bloomers has been in troduced into the Alabama legisla ture and referred to the committee on temperance. This is correct. No man would wear bloomers un less he was so drunk that a “biled owl” would appear sober by com paalson. —Ex. Everybody in this valley real - izea the importance of direct road connection with Globe and the great aggregation of mining camps contiguous thereto, but no move is being made toward the opening of such a road. There is one thing sure, the road will not build itself and if those who are most largely interested do not take hold of it who wilL Thr servant question has many aspects and suggests varied possi bilities. An English religious paper bait this advertisement: “To Chris tians: Will any lady take a tire some village girl of seventeen years M an under servant, and try to train her into steadier ways 1” The very frank and rather amusing proposal, considering the difficulty and uncertainty of the task, was perhaps consistently addressed to Ohriatians. Thb Territorial Superintendent of Public Instruction, Hon. T. E. Dalton, is at work on his annual report to the Governor. He states that the total amount of Bchool ex penses in toe territory for the year ending Jane 30, 1896, is about 9210,000; that the valuation of property will be about $500,000; that there are 16,936 children of school age and 335 school teachers in the territory. The number en rolled in the public schools in the past year was 12,889. Nuably two years ago when the railroad was built to Mesa a new county wagon road was declared open— or rather promised—from Mesa to Tempo, the same being a continuation ot Main Street, Mesa Nothing has yet been done to open the road and people hereabouts are a little curious to know why. The road along the railroad track is more or less dangerous as most horses frighten at the trains. Peo ple driving to Tempo must either go by this road or the telephone road which is considerable out of the way. Why has not the new road been opened. Thk Supreme Court of California has rendered an important decision in a case where a man married his mistress and, fearing trouble in the future, put his property out of his hands before marrying her. He afterward deserted her and she sued for a divoroe, which she ob tained, together with $25 a month alimony. The lower court held that this judgment should be a lieu upon the defendant's property, and that, although the parties were not married at the time the conveyance was made, it was done with the idea to defraud her of her rights as a wife. The judgment of the court below was therefore affirmed. A Belfast, Me., man has placed 26,400 games of oribbage with his wife, and now they aro only six games apart.
