A certain gentleman who owes three
or four dollars on The Ciiiek rocently
ret usod tho papor at tho Rod Cloud post
oflice. If tho said gontleman docs not
como in and pay tbo samo, wo shall tako
great pleiiBiiro in running his namo and
account in the papor. Wo do not havo
uny objection to pooplo stopping the pa
per if thoy do not want it, but when
thoy owe for it and don't oven offer to
pay fat it, tout in a lidree of rinothVr col'
Tiiosk Tasks. Tho very esteemed od
itor of our up stairs contemornry, sau

lection of delinquent taxes, "wn out of

tho article fully understands tho subject
In discussion, and believes that tho arti

proper. TheroMs no sense In putting
men to extra cxpanso of thrco or four

when tho samo could havo been as
onsily collectod for a two cent postage
stamp, ' Wo know of men who aver that
they went to tho offleo to pay thoir
taxes, and had tho money to do bo,
but wore afterwards distressed for
tho same, and out of nuro cuBsod-
nosB as they claim Tin: Ciiikp believes
in men paying their taxes, but it docs
not uolicvo in distressing pooplo and
adding coBts, when it notico would
havo dono tho work, no matter whother
tho man was provident or improvident
und especially, does it work a great
hardship whore n man is poor ami un
ablo to pay. Numerous complaints
woro brought to our ofllco in regard to
tho matter, but wo had no particular
desiro to discuss tho subject, as the
treasurer and bourd of supervisors woro
not of our political faith. Thoro is no
doubt but what thero was n consider
able amount of unnecessary hardship
worked by distressing muny who wcro
unable to pay without taking tho neces
sities of lifo from thoir families. If
a man has his homo in Webster county
and intends to livo hero, thero should
bo no particular wish to forco him to
pay his taxes at tho point of n distress
warrant. The Cmcr does not bclievo
that thero was actually 25 cases in
Wobstor county whoro it wan necossary
to forco peoplo to pay, bnd thoy beon
properly notiliod. Ex-treasurer FasBler
was not altogether to blame in the prom
ises, as ho was compelled to forco tho
collections by ordor of tho board of
supervisors, but thero should havo boon
somo extenuating circumstances wo im
agino whoro peoplo wcro not prepared to
Ouit Board or Supkuvisohs. It is
generally acceded by all intelligent and
deep thinking citizens interested in
county affairs, that tho board of super
visors aro tho stuff, and that our county
was never bettor administered than at
the present timo. In fact, tho prcsont
board is comprised wholly of a discreet
and judicious body of prosperous farm
ers, entirely conversant with tho require
ments of their respective precincts, and
with the county affairs generally. At
tbo sumo timo, thoy act in perfect har
mony, nnd boliovo in dispensing juatico
and equity regardless of all conse
quences. Thero is very Httlo school-boy
style about tho members ot tho board,
but if anyone imagines they are unablo
to Binilo and look pleasant, or havo a
good time, thoy should watch their pro
ceedings whdn off duty. At tho Gard
ner house, during tho evenings, they dis
cuss tho political issues, swap true stor
ies, play whist and preparo for tho noxt
day's work. Each man can see moro
good features in his own precinct than
any other, and all claim tho bent land,
the purest wator and tho host society.
Tako them generally, and it would bo
hard to scaro up a moro jolly, and yot a
business crow than tho presont board of

previously gone into innocuous dessuo

wonderfully changod, until it has now
ono of tho finest ritualistic services that
wo havo ever seen, and we aro somewhat
of a "jiner",ourselvcs. Tho work is entire
ly now and has many attractive features
that aro not inrodueed in any other socie
ties. It is sublimely beautiful and all of
tho old members should return to its
folds. The lodgo is now conducted on
business principles from tho supremo
lodgo down to tho subordinate, and only
eight assessments aro mado in any ono
year, and they aro paid quarterly. Tho
fodgo now starts out with pnspeots thut

Cloud in accorded the honor ot a visit I
oy sucli u (liBliDguiBliod lecturer as Kit
Perkins, (Melville D. Landon) nnd whon
that renowned humorist arrived in tho
city, our reportor sought an interview
nnd found him at tho Holland house,
peacefully reclined on n comfortablo
sofa, no doubt, resting, preparatory to
his loot tiro Thursday night. Tho report
or was very cordially received, and hard
ly ronllzed that he waH in tho presence
of ono who had captivated tho most
aristocratic nudienceB in the world. In
appearance, Mr. Landon would coin pare
favorably with a jolly drummer, rather
than a theologian. Ho is ot medium
height, compactly built, with dark hair,
sprinkled with gray, very piercing gray
eyes, and animated nature. He ban an
excellent command of language and
sooiub'. overflowing with wit. lie spoke
rapidly and fluently on various subjects,
touching politics, funny and ludicrous
experiences incidont to his varied travels
in Japan nnd other parts of tho world.
Whon asked what ho thought of the
democratic times, ho readily attributed
tho samo to rcckloss legislation, and said
tho south were fcoling its cfTects iui se

Mr. L. "I think not long, al least,

I BUpposo said tho roportor that you
havo a great aversion to pugilism. "No"
said he, 1 tako considerable notico of
pugilistic ovonts, and will watch tho re
sults of tho Corbott-Mitcholl tight with
interest. I bavo witnessed oovoral groat
tights, bavo noon Sullivan fight thrco
times and witnessed tho groat contest
botwoon him and Cardiff, whon Sulli
van's arm was brokon. At this fight, I
sat with Roscoo Conkling and Chas. A.
Dana within eight feot ot tho pugilists.
In ono Bonso I think pugilists show n
great tomporanco losaon, because, during
thoir truining, thoy uovor touch a drop
ot liquor, and it establishes tho truth,
that if ono is to bo n perfect specimen of
health, ho must abstain from ull intoxi
cants." Horo dinner wan callod, terminating a
very pIcBBnnt interview, nnd, after ac
cepting a vory kind invitation to attend
tho locturo that night, tho roportor with

All who had tho plcasuio of attending
tho lecture, woro highly gratifiod with
tho speaker's interesting nnd funny in
cidents. His descriptions of tho dis
Unction botwoon wit, humor, satire, rid
icule, pathos and illustrations of deform
ou grammar, motoric, spelling otc. woro
well recioved. In fact tho audionco was
either so quiot no to hear a pin drop, or
literally conulsod with hearty laughtor
during tho ontiro locturo which lasted
two hours and 20 minutes. Eli Perkins
has certainly acloaror conception of fun
