that no such effort will be made. The

average legislator, could not be con

not be in the political fight this year,

. Fish and Game.
It is to be hoped that when the next
legislature metts the first bill passed
will be to repeal each and every one of
the innumerable acts now in the books
.concerning the protection of fish and
;game. A Philadelphia lawyer, assist
ed by a Scappoose justice of the peace,
.couldn't, to save his life, tell what the
present game laws are. When the
.slate is cleaned, then leta brief, sensi
ble act be passed-defining the close sea
sons, providing the punishment and
.making it the duty of every nonstable
and peace officer to enforce the law.
jama protection it true to name, pro
tecting nothing, not even the pro
tector, MeGuire. The laws are a delu-eio-i
and a farce, a shield to the lawless
jind destruction Jo - the game. We
should either have protection for the
birds and fishes that protects them, or
.else free trade in allowing the law
abiding to compete with the lawless in
exterminating them. ; t

"Every signer on this petition is a 1

Here let me remark, from my own ex

lieu you are not quite sure of him if
you have him already under your

him and attempt to put your llnjre.r on
him, and he just ain't there. There
are exceptional cases, however. ,
COM PI, A I .NTS.
lt. David Wishart makes a state
ment. Now, I think the old man is a
real good old soul, . means, or would
like to be good; but still, I am inclined
to think he is just a little like .old
Davy Crockett's cider Jarrel; as lie
walked up to it and gave it a rap, he
said, "There is something good in
there, but can't get it out;" audi am
of the opinion there is something good
in him, but lam fearful. .
The old man says, in his complaint,
something like this: "ThatJinklns
told Uncle Jake, and he told another
man, and he told me (Uncle Dave
Wishart) that 8. M. Baldwin was noti
fied of obstructions in the road, and he
Uncle Dave ktiowjs it is so." That is
all there is of that . ,
It I am supervisor and am informed
that there are obstructions in the road,
and I order a man to-appear' at that
place to remove the same,' that is my
business but in this case the man did
not respond, however. But if I ever
have occasion to call him again, lie Will
be very apt to take something beside a
hint. ' , '
A word or two .more in the way of
advice. People that live in glass houses
should not throw stones. This is an
old and true saying; and whiie I mean
no offense, and ask pardon if it be so
considered, while it occurs to me that
my old friend Dave Wishart seems "to
be iuclli ed to rest heavily on my shoulj
ders in rather a disparaging manner,
and what I term a kind of a bite, or a
slight nip at the back, I will, as lie
sayB, just to let the people in general
kuow'what is going on up here, call
his attention to the style he unloaded
himself at a prayer meeting, a few
weeks ago, near my place, when he
had audacity to gel down on his knees
before uis God, as he supposed, and
jtaid: "Lord, look down on this, your j
poor humble servant. 1 have come be- !
i'ore Thee to usk Thee to be merciful
unto me, aud do Thou now, O Lord!
relieve me of all and every thought or
deed, in malice, strife, en vy, back-biting,"
and, of course, included hypoc
risy. " '
What a sentiment! What a glorious
thought! But where, oh! where is his
God to-day? And where was He that
memorable night? Too Tar away to
give relief. Now, my old friend Dave,
go meud your ways, practice what you
preach, for, "while the lamp holds out
to burn the vilest sinner may return."
The next is Mr. Bak6r, and I do not
think he made assertioij meaningly, for
I ean prove by Mr. iCnight and Mr,
Neely that I was up there on duty as
road supervisor; " and as to the- com
plaint, Mr. Baker lias a very poor ex
cuse and is the first' man I have met
that grieved because the supervisor
failed to fipd him. I will put him
down and be kind to him when I come
Next, A. Fredeuburg complains of
obstructions in the road. Mr. Fredeu
burg is over fifty years of age; he claims
he is exempt from road labor on that
account. He has one hundred and
iixty acres of land with fair Improve
ments. The reader can judgj of the
correctness of his statement. If tuuh
was the law there would be very little
labor performed on. the road! All I
have to say to him is t come out likj a
man and work his road tax when the
supervisor calls on him.
Next comes Cooper David. I do not
refer to that David that we read about
in the Bible; not the one that kiiled
Goliah with three little pebbles which
he selected from that beautiful liUle
brook, but the one whose last act in
gouging a mote from' his neighbor's
eye before removing the beam from his
own, and who still lives in that happy
state, oroud with the all-absorbing
hope that the duv is uot far distant
when he will reign king over all his
tribe. Then the roud will be worked
in time and the money collected from
taxable property throughout, his land
will be spent, as he says, that is if he
gets as much as I did, which was $1.C0.
Now, gen ;le render, I hope you may

kuowledge that you are that particular

"An instance of animal affection
caT.a to tnv nnridft ' two vpn.ra sto "
vorsity of Indiana, where I was then
a student, to assume the presidency
of the Lelcnd Stanford university at
Pasadena, Cal. While president of
the Indiana university Dr. Jordan se
cured a fine St. Bernard pup and took
good care to raise it property. The
dog soon became proficient in many
ways under the tutelage of Dr. Jor
dan and seemed fairly to worship its
master. Nightly the dog could be
seen in the Bloomington postofEce
waiting its turn when the mail for
the president would be handetT out
inclosed in a leathern pouch. With
thics pouch the dog would trot away
toward t"j.o residence of the presi
dent, and woo to any one who at
tempted to bar its progress.
"Dr. Jordan on leaving presented
the dog to Professor Hoffman of the
college. At first the dog was disin
clined to part with his master, and
upon Electing Dr. Jordan in the
street would turn away from Profess
or Hoffman and follow after. Being
driven away onco or twice, however,
, it made no further attempts at fol
lowing him. On the occasion of the
doctor's departure Professor Hoff
man, along with the other mem
bers of the faculty, went to the
depot. Thedog journeyed with him.
It was here that Dr. Jordan stooped
and patted the dog on the head and
then entered the cars. The dog
watched wistfully for the reappear
ance of the good doctor, but in vain.
"Soon after this Professor Hoff
iman noticed that his dog was absent
at a certain period in the day. The
operator at the depot also noticed the
daily visits of the dog to the station
on the arrival and departure of the 2
Pi m. train. , Being informed -as to
whom the dog belonged he sent
word,' and Professor Hoffman next
day watched the strange sight. The
dog came, expecting the return of its
former master, and waited patiently
for. the approach of the train. As
the train neared the depot, it would
prick " up its ears and observe the ar
rivals. It was only when - the : train
had passed out of sight that the dog
would depart. It was really a touch

imal affection." St. Louis Globe
