IVo cannot keep from moralizing n
Muio on tho losHon wo received from
Coursing Meet. Tho American sense
ot' Justice nnd fair play was shock
ed Into action by tho daughter of
rabbits which had no cliance. How
muoh chanco does tho avorago boy

will It lako to shock us cltlzoiiH Into
action that will give tho boys and
girls a fair chanco? Arc rabbits worth

a numbor of each of those classes and
1,1 would bo worth our whllo to work
out a plan by which tho school build
ings -wo have cduld bo put to this uso
whon tho day school Is not in sosBion.
Wo cannot oxpoct tho Hoard of Edu
cation to flnnnco such a school but
Homo way might bo found to get tiio
monoy necessary If wo would try to
work It out.
A Column of "Nonsense.
Tho othor day whon wo wore going
ovor to Porter's to buy soma now elec
tric fixtures for our wlfo we mot a
innn who asked us why mon shave. Ho
said It was a troinondmiB expense,
a lot of work nnd not natural Wo
agreed with him and told him we woul
let him know ns booh as wo found
out. So wo went wont over to ask
Kd Davis about It. Ho said ho didn't
know and asked his Indiana friend,
who happonod to bo In the Htoro visit
ing with Ed., This frlond said ho
know a man back in- Indiana who
didn't Wont to shavo, but IiIb wlfo
mado him. Sho suld ho couldn't man
ugo to oat egg or drink coffco with a
beard and he said ho bollovod he
could. Ho Boomed to sort of pine for
a board and so his kind wlfo finally
gave in and ho scorned happy again
Ho got along protty well for a Bpell
but one day he was lighting a cigar
and tlio beard caught flro. After that
his wlfo made him cut It off and ho
did. Ed looked horrified nt tills story
and said ho was glad ho didn't havo a
board and wo said wo would think a
beard would bo in tho way when one
was courting nnd Ed said lie didn't
sco how, and Just as wo woro going
to explain Indiana started to tell of a
man ho once know who grow a board
to cover a flat chin and wo said that
might bo good thing and Ed said thoro
were othor kinds of chins that ought
to bo covered and Just as wo woro go
ing to ask him what ho meant by
that, Indiana said ho onco know a man
who spent more tlmo combing nnd
brushing his board than he would
havo spoilt shaving and wo said wo
didn't know they combed nnd brushed
beards, and Ed asked how' did wo ox
poct thoy would got tho food out of
tho hair unless thoy cleaned It out
onco In a whllo nnd Just thon Indiana
snlckcrod nnd when wo asked him
whnt it was about ho said they comb
ed beards to got othor things than
food out of them and Ed asked what
and just as ho was going to toll wo
told of tho man wo know who had n
beard and his wlfo used to pull it when
sho would get mnd nt him and wo said
wo woro glad wo didn't havo a board
and Ed said ho was too. But Indiana
laughed-at us and said If we would
stand up to our wives thoy wouldn't
daro to pull our beards. Ed said that
would bo n good thing for tia to try
and wo said "Try It yourself," At that
Ed got mad and then wo got mnd and
Ed stnrtod aftor us ns If ho would pull
our whiskers If wo had any and we
got out of thoro pretty quick.
And now Wo know.
