ODD BITS OF NEWS.
Swoyersvllle. Pa. Justice of the
Peace Henry Miller, of this place, was
so angry st the defiant snd unrepent
ant attitude of s wife beater on trial
before him that he peeled his coat
and sailed Into the defendant When
court adjourned the wife beater was
so battered that his best friend would
not recognize him. Also he was hum
ble snd repentant.
Flfleld. Wis. Kept alive for two
days by association with two beer
cubs snd their mother. Baby Ball, the
two-year-old son of a settler north of
here, was found late st night recent
ly, asleep In the underbrush and.
though starving, was not suffering1
from exposure. The searchers saw the
signs of bears near where the child
was found, and old woodsmen declar
ed that the babe was kept alive by
sleeping with cubs and their mother.
All that the child can say Is: "Big
doggie plsy; baby hungry."
Cincinnati. Ohio. The Methodic
Ministers' Association has formed a
secret body of 100 men, who will re
port to parents snd employers the
names of all young persons attending
dances, theaters, etc., thought to be j
Improper. The Investigators are vol
unteer". They will report, also, all
other law violations they discover.
Fort Smith. Ark. This state's brand
new prohibition law Is already a dead
letter here. Because the saloonlsts
have secured Federal, State and
County licenses, but under the new
prohibition law can not be granted
city licenses. It was agreed at a con
ference that they shall be fined by
the city II day, payable every ten
days. The new prohibition law for
bids the granting of any more saloon
licenses. Before It wss signed Fort
Smith saloonlsts had secured all their
licenses save those from the city.
Mayor Read, in police court, told the
saloonlsts thst although he Is a pro
hibltlonlstt, he did not believe the
city had a moral right to close the i
loons under existing conditions.

A choice bit of goaxlp has been go
Ing the rounda for the past week. The
principal parties connected with the
affair are well known, which makes
the story all the more sensational,
husband and wife are mixed up In th
scandal, and what makes It doubly
startling Is the fact that each of them
haa always hsd the entire respect of
the community. As a matter of fact
the bomb exploded at the home of this
couple st the very moment st which
there hsd arrived at their house
party of twenty or twenty-five of our
best people, who had gone there to
surprise the couple on their wedillm
anniversary. Neither of the principals
expected company. The astonishment
of the visitors may he Imagined when
they heard the husband call his wife
down. He made no bonea of It. It
waa done openly and without even
hint of apology to the guests. The
shocking part of It I the fact that
every one, even the closest friends of
the couple, hsd no Idea but that their
home lite was Ideal. N evert helw
and we have the best of authority fo
the story when the company arrived
they were met at the door by the as
tonlshed husband. As soon as the first
greetings were over he said. "My wife
la upstairs, I will csll her down." And

In every gesture! It Is apparent that

flood of his persuasive eloquence. His
movements sro vigorous, his speech
vehement, his guxe flashing fixed on

Prohibition has driven

peritrof the people. It has
cnt off from this community
the revenue derived from
decent beer saloons and has
increased intemperance. It
has largely increased public
expense in the vain effort x5

not possibly be enforced.
It has added seriously to
the burden of taxation. It
has depreciated the value
