When 1 roo such inero loyH ns tlioso Hint
dully luuig nroiinil the saloons, going to u
certain wreck, nnd very fnst nt tlmt, 1 don't
wonder nt tliu prohibitionists' Hoenilni; fanat
icisms in favor of abolishing tliu liquor
trnlllc. Tlio boys referred to nro nlutost lit
habitants of KuliMfiis, and un) one who enters
nny of thoso places near tlio it liter of the ho
tels, can always see them theiein. Their
faces nroblotisl, tliclr talk ulgnr to sny tliu
least, mill their every action gives tint Ob
server tho Idea of n boy tlmt want to Ih
"tough." It seems a stmmo to lot such loyH
havo drink mill notwithstanding tlmt they
may lw of ago, regarding which, howevci, I
nm not prepared to spouk, tliu saloon men,
knowing tlio olrctinistnnecs and knowing also
that tlioso raino Ik))h drnk just Iwcaiisu it
Myitis smart to them, t think their pride, If
they hnvo nny, should cnutlou tlicm. Those
boys havo honored and rosiiectod imrcnts, hut
it seems they havo no control over thoiu, or
certainly they would remedy tho mil. I
trust tho bat tenders w ill hereafter uson littlo
doscretion In ixisslng drinks over tho loir and
not deal out tho poison to such youthful nsplr
rants to a drunkard's grave. Tho CoL'lllKIt
hns novor lieforo sjioko against or for saloons,
nor oirered any ndvlso in this matter, hut in
this instance it feels called umii to say n fow
words which I ti ust will Ik accepted ill tho
tamo good grnco that it is given. IIoweer,
should clrcuinstJUK't'H demand, 1 will pulillsh
tho names of nil concerned and ask thomithor
itles to look tho matter up.
Away down near tho corner jiockotof nu
O street car yestenlay moinitig sat n shy,
modest-looking woman, who wnsdooply hur
led in tho pages of u book, tho cover of which
wus carefully hidden by an outer covering of
thick brown paKr. It was quite evident that
sho was afraid that souio one would see w hat
gIio was rending, and soveial young men In
her neighborhood vainly endeavored to get a
sly peep nt tho title pago of tho hook, sui
jKwing, no doubt, that tho fair ouo was Inter
ested in roiiio forbidden work. Pretty soon
another lady entcusl tho car. Tho leader
know her, closed hor book, and miido room
for her. Of course woman's curiosity tri
umphed and tho new coiner asked whut she
h id been rending. In a moment the hends of
nil tho wondering young men weio bent to
hear tho resjionso. "I nm almost ushiiiuid to
tell you,"snld the shy woman, nud neighbor
ing yenrs wero picked up curiously. "It is
tho llrst ehuuoo, though, I have hud
to rend it, and I'm ashamed to havo any one
seo what it is It's'Hobeit Klsinero '" The
pricked ears uaiuo down, and tho curious
)oung men looked ns though some one had
cried "Kouo!"
If there is one. thing that mankind admires
moio than another, it Is to hear n bawling
baby oxerclso Its lungs to tho fullest extent in
n passenger coach. Such was tho state of
nlhilrs I enjoyed the other day whilo en louto
east. Tho mother, who lieing used tho child's
music, ti led littlo to lemedy the noise, and
seemed In utter ohllvlan as i egni ds tho an
noyance it was to tho balance of tho passen
gers. Upcoming fatigued anil tired of such
entei talnment, with several other traveler, I
isltisl tlio conch hehltid, nud after getting
comfortably seated mid interested in a novel
I thought howdlirerent it was tiom the seeiio
from which wo had just taken lefuije. Hut
our piece of mind was of short durutiou, for
in u fow moments another "kid" hid opened
its head nnil the air was again full of melodi
ous child cries. Well, wo had to stand it, but
a change is liclug looked for soon, as one of
tho boys still ttsl a paper in tho train for sig
