to bring about that result.
The Pennsylvania coal operators
want to construct a building entire

Chief Walker Fearm of the fore

director-general, says that interest
in the exposition is already great

There are editors who still persist
in asserting that the man who takes
a paper until it is long past due and
then, when asked for pay, fires it
back into the oflice that it may be
.marked "Kef used"' is a child of the
devil. Now I believe that the asser
tion is unjust. Beiug the son of a
Baptist deacon I never have had a
very high regard for the devil and I
still consider him a low, vile, mean,
sneaking, despicable and outrage
ous whelp. In fact I would not
stoop to recognize him even in a re
vival metting. But as low an opin
ion as I have of his infernal and
satanic majesty I cannot consent to
be unjust to him and therefore I
will not stigmatize him with any
connection, either expressed or im
plite, with such infamous scoun
drels. Fremont Flail-
Paris Gaiety Girls.
A fairly well filled house greeted
the Paris Gaiety Girls at the Water
man lat night. The ladies were
conspicuous for their absence, and
the house was composed of bald
heads and Johnnies, and they wit
nessed about as "raw" a perform
ance as has ever been visited upon
this city. So far as the girls were
concerned, they were not "in it.'
They were ancient, and in their
grand inarch they moved around as
if tlftry had never been on the stage
before. The only redeeming feature
of the show was the horizontal bar
performance of Pickett, which was
really good. The orchestra ren
dered the music in a vety good
manner and are following signs of
constant improvement. The local
public can see a good show on
Thursday, the 23th, when the
famous Ness family will reappear
before them in the musical success.

Your communication of February

this office on the (mention as to

registered, 1 nder chapter 42. con

3288 of the same says that il, upjn

the ollice 01 tiie county clerk in the
county in which lie resides, or in
which he intends to practice. It is
then the duty of the county clerk to
file the certilicate and then record
it in a book kept for that purpose.
Section 2,291 sets forth that any
peison that shall have obtained
a ceitificate provided by this act
a;id Hindi remove to another county
shall before entering upon the
prat tic of his profession in such
otliei county cause said certilicate
to be hied and recorded in the office
of the county clerk of the county
to which he has removed.
I am of the opinion that the inten
tion of the legislature was that the
physician should tile his certificate
and have it recorded in the oflice of
the count' clerk of the county in
which he has his office, or resides.
If this Is done, and properly done,
my judgment is the requirements of
the law have been met. The phy
sician having done this is entitled
to practice in any county within the
8 .ate where he may have a pro
fessional call. If, however, he
should change his office or resi
dence to another co". Jty, he would
of necessity comply at once with
the provisions of section 3,291 above
mentioned. I remain,

Hawk vs. Wagner.
Hawk vs. Wagner is a case in
police court to-day that is attract
ing considerable attention. Hawk
is a farmer who lives ten miles
south of town and has a large
family of children. He was mar
ried some time last summer and
since then his domestic affairs have
not been running as smoothly as
they ought to. Before he was mar
ried his wife borrowed $50 from
William Wagner, with the under
standing that he (Hawk) would pay
it. His wife left him, and to get
her to return and take care of his
children he agreed to give her a
mule that is, if she would live
with him. She went back and
lived there nine days, according to
the testimony, and then left. She
had the mule brought to town and
turned over to William Wagner to
liquidate the debt. Hawk replev
ined the mule, claiming that she
had failed to live up to her bar
gain, and hence the mule did not
belong to her. Mathew Gering
is prosecuting the case and J. L.
Root is for the defendant. Judge
Archer has taken the case under
advisement and will render a de
cision next Tuesday.

through a lot of grasshoppers, and one

were giving him great pain. The
