of the chief of police was that he'd wear

Capitalists aa might come to town to In

along like a marriage bell, and no town
in the Country had less grief.

then a committee of grave and roverend

loss aggressive man.
"The aggressive man stirs up iv lot ofie graven image that tha farmers tied

years and years the office of chief of'
police u the town was a nlco little snap
that was passed along to the faithful
for service rendered. When a .new
mayor, waa .eloted he chuiH. for Thief of
police the man who had done the loudest
their horses to- him. But when ha put
in a blue suit ancf a big brass shield he
swelled up with a senae of hla own im

man. At first he inaugurated a cam
paign against the loafers who Infested
the street corners, and all tho leading
citizens and prominent buslneas men
were enthusiastic and said it was a gen
uine blessing to have an aggressive of
ficial. "Encouraged by the applause the chief
of police spent his spare time rending up
the city ordinances and he got wjae, to
about COO laws nobody had ever heard ot
und these laws wero being violated every
day. Ho he began arresting taxpayers

their children's saving banks to pay their
fines. Every morning ten or fifteen clt

"There was a regular rclgn of terror in
this doggone town, l'eoplo were afraid
to venture out of their own yards let
they'd breuk kome kind uf a law, Then
the whole town sickened of the aggrea-
ve policy and ono night a party of
earnest citizens took the chief of pollco
down to the creek, Just below the dye
works, whoro tho water usually I, violet,
or pea green, and when they had soaked
him there for a while all the zeal in him
evaporated and when lie showed up for
