Incident ol Every Day Life Which Very
Few People Stop to Think About on
Accouut of Their Littleness.
This paper dues not want to bo otor
nally kicking, and has in the past tiled
to discourage this trait in others, but
tlie oluinctits M'i'iit to bo against our
keeping still We like mud and lots of
it, as wo remember wo usid to wado In
it when a barefoot kid just to see it
oo.o up between our toes So wo
liuven't any aversion to it and heneu
have no peisonal kick coming -Hut
tliero are otners. Other people do not
like to walk in the mud, and in a
matter of business forotirself and those
who are in business on the east side of
the street, wo wish to register a kick in
regard to ladles and others having to
wade tluough the mud where the walk
Is go no in front of the two vacant lots
north of this ollleo. Wo do not wish
to lay 11 straw in tho way of a nuw
enterprise, but onterpriso or no enter
prise, the business men on tho east
sido of tho street should not bo com
polled to losu business on account of
citi.eus not caring to soil their foot,
wear by walking through tho mud on
rainy days. This condition of affairs
islikolyto exist all summer and per
haps until fall, and though tho build
ing which may go up thero would re
p.iy us for all tho inconvonieucn wo
have had to put up with, it may not
bring us back the patronage which has
gone to other channels. The city did
tho heroic act after tho lirst kick was
made and put down n Miiglo boat d in
three lengths, which aio in place when
dry but seldom when it rains. Did you
over see two persons try to cross at tho
same time on h twelve inch plank? It
can bo done but it would bo kind of
awkward in llio chnnco meeting of two
ladles who do not speak as they pass
by nod a gentleman and lady. It is a
kind of a hug waltz step which can
only bo accomplished with much dex
terity. This is not a hint to tho boys
to stand at tho ond of tho walk until
some girl comes along in order to "em
brace" tliis golden opportunity. But
to resume from our digression. If the
simo condition of affairs existed on
tho west sido what a roar of indigna
tion would go up. Wo haven't any
city dads or mayor in business on our
sido of tho street, but wo'vo got an in-
stitutiou that can "holler" when they
give us mud and then try to nib It in.
We don't believe it is the city's place
to bear tho burden, but it's their place
to eoe that tho proper parties look after
tho matter. It was good tun tidy wea
ther Tuesday to plant trees and from
the number that were taken away from
tho depot that day it would indicate
that tho time is coming when few lots
in the city or farms in tho country but
what will bo woli supplied, If real
mean of a conductor to put a man off
a train down by tho coal sheds on a
dark and rainy night. Hut tfaeu he

again ho should study tho topography
of tho ground and surroundings of his
home city and wear an electric 1 ght in
his neck-tio. If he uses all these pre
cautions ho will not timl all tho mud
holes in tho streots and fall off tho side
walk so many times. One man who
passed through this experience tho
first of the week will probably take
our advice In tho future, Thero aro
other little matters of adrlco we might
givo but will not do so at this time.
Considerable comment has been made
both good and ill of tho article in lait
week's paper headed "Gossiping Peo
ple." There was a lino of thought in
that article as read by credibly disposed
people which will work out much good
if followed. Take for instance a young
lady who ia full of spirit and believes
in having a good time. She moots a
youug married man with whom sho is
acquainted and as thoy pass along the
street they engago in some topic of
conversation that causes then to
soem to bo gay, mirthfui and having
a good time. Tho lynx-eyed gossip
notices, takes a sniff at tho spring
laden air that makes youth smilo, and
says to herself, "too familiar." Tho

"there was too much water on tho stage

This shows conclusively that this city
is a good show town. With a nico,
neat ground floor opera house it could
bo made a bettor one. In ono act of
a play last week oue of the actors camo
onto tho stage and standing beforo tho
scono representing a house, said;
"What a nico homo I'vo got, why
should I leave it?" The situation was
painful and drew tears from the audi
ence. How can an actor do justice to
himself and the audience when ho has
to stand before a pieco of scenory and
say such words, when tho pretty homo
looks as if a cyclono had struck it and
someoue had finished the scone of deso
lation by throwing a bucket of buttor
milk ever the structure. What realism
Is thero when actors havo to put up
with such makeshifts? Tho time for
