Not The Only One.
Yesterday we were ask, snys the
Moultrie Observer, if we ever saw a
baldheaded woman , We answered
*'N we never did, nor did we eve' 1
see a woman walking around town in
her shirt sleeves wiin a cigar in her
teebl. and running into every saloon
she saw. We never sow a woman go
fishing with a bot.tlo in her pocket
sit or. the damp ground all day and
coma ho.i.e drunk ut night. Nor
have w ever seen a woman yank off
her coat, and say she could lick any
man i.. town, tiud Dims her, she s
n >r lu It t hat war.—E>.
The ihove maybe true. There is a
lot ef nd shne'B she cuts out, but on
the i#’ I.. *r band did you ever see a man
W l l t'og iibout town bareheaded ? Did
you ever *e a him out on a cold windy
day w th nothing on his arms, shoul
ders or throat but cheese cloth? Did
you *■ ver see him go out to a ball bar
®d below the shoulders and chest, ana
dan?e with a half dozen diilorent peo
ple until exhrustion and perspi > tion
forced him to stop and then go and
sit in the window or take a walk on
the veranda until chilled through?
Did you ever see a man crowd a 31-
inch waist Into an 18 inch pair of
trousers? Did you ever see a man eat
a quart of green plums with just a
little salt added? Did you ever see
him Dull *h hair over from the back
of his he id and nail it down between
his eyes or draw his pompadour back
into a lit'!* wad "n his neck? D and
you ever see h tn crowd his No 5 foot
into aNo - shoe made on a K last ,
and with heels so high that he had to
throw iiis head and hat back to bal
ance his body? No bless his sorry
soul, you never did. He may be as
mean as old scratch, and maybe re
sponsible for lots of sins that flesh is
heir to, hut he is not the only fool
that walks up and down this earth.—

A Hrade Union Inconsistency.
One of the anomalies of trades union
ism is the demand for “closed shops”
and the advocacy of municipal owner
ship when it is inevitable that every
industry transferred from private to
public ownership will become an “open
shop." In public employment all con
ditions and wages of labor must be
determined by laws and ordinances.
No law excluding nonunion men from
public employment can stand the test
of its constitutionality.—Public Policy.

Until we remove the political influ

Awful British T-slephone Service.
Commenting upon the recent sale of
the Glasgow municipal telephone sys
tem to the British postoffice the Phila
delphia Inquirer says:
“The people of Glasgow are entitled
to commiseration, for it is a case of
out of the frying pan into the lire. By
those who have tried it words have
tieen declared inadequate to describe
the badness of the telephone service
furnished by the British postoffice.
“Municipal ownership may be all
right in principle, but private enter
prise properly controlled for the public
benefit usually beats it In practice.”
Present Ills Bad Enough.
While the most sanguine ef nn-. r*r
atives may, in their most hopeful mo
ments or when smarting under tire is
sues of either individualism or cor
porate audacity, feel an impulse to try
the prescription of the municipal own
ership doctors, yet a recollection of the
examples of municipal employment
with which the past is rife is quite
enough to make one bear the ills we
lenow about rather than open a Pan
dora's box of other ills, which once set
free may never again be curbed or re
boxed.—George W. Ditbridge in New
A FLORIDA LAKE DRY.
Lake Jackson, a large lake located
six miles north of Tallahassee cover
ing an area of at least 5,000 acres
has gone dry,
It has emptied itself into a subter
ranean body of water, fish and terra
pin gathered on the lake bed by the
car load, and crowds of people gath
erei from all parts of western Florida
to see the strange sight.

Professor Byron Scribble, the distin
guished poet and president of theHiggs
ville Authors’ club, has been placed
in charge of the municipal gas plant at
niggsvllle, Ind. Professor Scribble has
had no previous experience in the man
ufacture of gas, but there is no man in
the Iloosier State who can handle vari
ous kinds of meters better than lie,
and under his administration it is
hoped the produce will more closely re

The estimated kiss of 8500 per diem
upon the city owned Staten Island fer
ry in New York will be met not, as has
been feared, by an increase of the tax
levy, but by the printing of a sufficient
number of tons of ferry bonds to be
used as fuel as a substitute for coal,
thereby saving vast sums of money
and the whole bond issue being con
sumed without adding any future ob
ligations, interest bearing or otherwise,
to the city debt.
The city authorities of Glasgow ad
n loss last year of SOO,OOO on the
operations of their gas plant. Mr.
Samly MacXab. the humorist of Troon,
has written to the Glasgow Sunday
American stating that these figures are
more illuminating than the gas, which
•trikes the American mind as a pretty
|Md joke for a Scotchman.
