sheriff was putting too much time
on me receipt, ana said so.
"We didn't use to get so much on
a tax receipt," he said; ' 'and it is
n't necessary now. What do you
put it all on there for?' and when
the sheriff had explained, he de
parted. At home that night, he
: was gazing at the receipt. He sud
1 denly started up and grasped his
. phone. "Say, sheriff, I don't own
any property in town," he said, and
- a conversation ensued. As a result
of the talk he came back to the
sheriff's office the next day. As it
finally .turned out, both he and his
wife had been assessed on the same
property in Jobs addition, though
by the description the fact was not
noticeable to the assessor. The
amount of the extra taxes he had
paid was $29.90, which of course
he" gets returned because the extra
stuff written on the receipt led to
the discovery. It was Levi

In all cases, the desired quota ot
names Has been easily secured,
though some difficulty attended the
case of Mr. Bourne's petition. Sev
eral of the most prominent republi
cans in town refused flatly to sign
his petition, arid a number who
signed, did so with mere or less pro
test. In all other cases no objec
tions were offered, and signatures
were easily, and freely secured. It
is provided in the law that the fact
that a man signs one candidate's pe
tition does not prevent him from
signing that of a rival aspirant. A fee
is paid for circulating the petitions
andthe securing of signatures is easy
Each candidate for state office must
have seven counties represented on
his petition with two precincts in
each of the seven counties and with
1,000 names in all.
Among others who refused to
sign Mr. Bourne's petition was 1
well-known business man. "I re'
fused to sign that Bourne petition,'
he said, "because I don t want to
have anything to do with the can
didacy of that kind of a man. In
fact, it made me angry when the pe
tition was presented to me. I am
willing to sign the petition of any
deserving republican candidate, but
when it comes to signing up for
Bourne, I must beg to be excused.
If specifications are wanted as to
why myself and other republicans
should not stand for Mr. Bourne,
let them consult the acts of Mr.
Bourne at all late legislative sessions

ators were to be selected. The man

The basket-ball team had social

was Harold Wilkins, who has been
an official of the team throughout
the season. The first team men and

was elaborately decorated with col

big O. A. C. champ on flag draped
artistically about the parlors was
one of the adornments. A hand

devices was given each as a- souve

The original of Sam Weller was Sam
Vale, an English low comedian, who,
In the early part of the last century, was
quite popular In the south of England.
In the year 1811, and for a few years
after, he made quite a reputation In the
musical farce called "The Boarding
House," written by Beaaley. In this
he played the part of Simon Spatter-
dash, a person who indulged In odd and
whimsical sayings. "Come on, as the
old man said to the tight boot;" "I am
down onyou, as the extinguisher said
to the candle;" "Let every one take
care of himself, as the donkey said
when dancing among the chickens,"
are fair illustrations of his witticisms
In the course of that play, the resem
blance between them and some of the
sayings of Sam Weller being very
marked. In private life Vale was a
wit, and many good things In his own
time were credited to him. A man of
excellent temper, he had no enemies,
and the good humor which pervaded
every saying, together with the droll
ery of his manner, gave bis witticisms
unusual value. His sayings were called
Sam Valerisms, and on the appearance
of Pickwick in 1836 the character of
Weller was generally recognized as a
portraiture of Vale; The comedian died
tn 1843 at the age of fifty-one.
