Incidents oi Every Day Life Which Very
Few People Stop to Think About on
Account of Their Littleness
The wenther the past week has been
hot stun" for "taters." And also every.
thing else. Everything grows in the
spring What don't grow in sizo grow
in importancy. However there ate
some things that grow la.y. They are
generally found sitting around with n
pieco of dry good? box in one hand
and a jack knife in the other. They
are generally looking for work. Hut
don't nsk them if thoy want a job.
The gang of boys who hang around on
the side streets at night and make re
marks abont peoplo passing by had
hotter quit The first thing thoy know
thoy will run up against a curfew or
dinance and not bo allowed on tho
streets after 8 p.m. Next Monday
wo are to bo treated to a real show.
This is the first one of the scasou and
no doubt will bo quito liberally pat
ronized. Hut speaking of shows It is
repotted that you can see a show or side
showdown under tho hill most any dny
or night. This class of shows are get
ting obnoxious Tho ground is now
wet down deeper than for some time.
If the i Id ndngo rain on Easter rain
for seven Sundays holds good where
will wo be at. Why is it that n young
fellow who always wears his hair long
aud parts it in tho middle, seldom
laughs out loud. J list a littlo to ho or
a Miiilo that would make a gill of six
teen summers envious It is funny
what things sonic- peoplo expect a
newspaper man to publish and take tho
blame for. This week wo havo had
two of these anonymous communica
tions. Ono wns to tho eflect that one
fellow had taken another fellow's house
keeper. Tho writer also expressed
his or her opinion of tho episode Tho
trouble is tho wiitcr forgot to sign
his or her name. As tho Uig Injun
doesn't caie to shoulder other people's
opinjnus when so tersely expressed the
epistle was consigned to tho waste
ba-kct The other ono which could
not bo accepted on account of thcrejbe
ing no name attached was as follows
"Found, on the steps of tho south ward
school hiiiiso a piece of wealing appal el
lesenibling bloomers aud a patent
pocket cigar lighter; owners can have
same by proving property and paying
for this notice." Now, wouldn't that
kill you. Wo havo no knowledgsof
tho matter whatever. No ono lias
turned over any such articles to us
Whoever wrote It must havo had a
dreamy imagination thoy were run
ning tliis paper. Now if anyono has
found any such articles in tho place
mentioned please send them in. If
you don't want to trust us with the ar
ticles found give us yum name so wo
can tell the owner wheio to get ihem.
Then we will publish the notice mid
not before. Have you noticed lately
how some oi our young men me
leal mug the ml of whistling. Some of
them ate actually getting to beexpoits.
Wo have heaitl of instances where- it
is actually charming. At least bomo
young ladies have been so charmed by
a whistle that thoy would drop what,
ever they were uoing and come out
and hang on tho front gate to listen to
"it." But then tho owner of tho
whistle counts for a whole lot whon
you come to consider the charm, Wo
have ueard.of peoplo getting in trouble
for trying to whistle just like some- ono
There is one question wo would liko
to ask. Wo have refrained from ask
ing it heretofore because wo thought
best to wait until tho season was over.
Here It is. "Why is it that when a
girl is 'dining out' she cuts a weazened
little oyster into four pieces, indicntmg
that her mouth is so small she couldn't
swallow it otherwise, aud when she is
Iioiik with tlitj family she can swallow
ojsters as big as soup plates with
gracefulness anil ease?"
