The Small Boy's Cigarette.
There is a law in this state that for
bids the sale of tobacco in any form to
minors. It even specifies that tobacco is
not to be given to minors under 10 years
of age. The law is especially aimed at
the cigaretts habit. It is unnecessary to
say that little or no attention it paid to
this law. Cigarettes are sold at any
tobacconist's to any lad of good size who
asks for them; they are kept in the school
supply stores; they are given by thought
less men to the boys of their acquain
tance. We have a remarkable way in
this country of making laws which we
never take the trouble to enforce. It all
goes to prove that arbitrary legislation
does not reform. Moral matters must be
met in another way. It is the parent and
not the stats that can keep the child from
smoking or chewing tobacco.
It is foolish and dangerous to make
law9 for the young that are not enforced,
f.ir if the children become aware of the
fact that they are breaking one law with
impunity, they will hastily arrive at the
conclusion that all can be treated with
the same contempt.
The small boys who parade our streets.
swelling with a consciousness of their
iauntv cigarettes are proof enough of
the open lailinerence wild which the
law referred to is regarded. Omaha
A Fire For a Dinner Settler.
Just after 1 o'clock today as most peo
pla were taking up their vocations for
the afternoon, struggling under the de-
presion of a malarious April sunshine
and a hearty Nebraska dinner, the fire
bell sounded the alarm for fire in the
Fourth ward. Almost instantly the Sec
ond and Third ward hose carts were on
the move and were soon fastened to
wagons with heayy teams attached and
were on the run to the scene of the fire.
Granite and Third streets were reached
in just four minutes and a half from the
first stroke of the bell, and there the cry
"Fire's out," turned them back. But the
boys kept up their record of being prompt
with the hose cart and ready for service
and many hearty dinners were settled.
As to the fire, it was on the roof of the
two-story frame house belonging to Con
O'Connor, located at the foot of Winter
steen hill by the B. A M. yards. The
house was occupied by Mrs. O'Rilcy and
as there was no fire in the house it is sup
posed to have caught from a spark from
an engine. A boy named Fred Denson,
who was digging dirt nearby, discovered
the fire and gave the alarm at the house,
and the men near by, who, not knowing
the extent of the fire, sent him up town
with the alarm. The fire was put out
with a couple of buckets of water, and
damage is slight.
