Let Florida establish a "tramp
farm" "upon which all vagrants
found roaming about over the
state could be colonized. Such a
scheme is not without feasibility,
and if the wandering Willies were
given from three to five years each
they would soon give Florida a
wide berth.
To a Chicago, man belongs the
edit of establishing new grounds
ion which to seek a divorce. He
. is gone to Dakota and asks the
court to set aside his matrimonial
bonds because his wife agreed to
pay $3000 for him and then failed
to do so. According to this the
price of men in the market has an
upward tendency and for the sake
of the new woman we would sue:-
crest that the court commit the
man to sme asylum for incurables
as a pjrs n who would set such a
precedent is a menace to social
economy and dangerous if left at
large.

The dowager empress of China
has had a romant'c history. She
was an extremely beautiful girl,

persuaded her parents to sell her
as a s'ave. She was purchased by
a renowned general, who, delight delighted
ed delighted with her beauty, disposition and
general cleverness, adopted and
educated her as lus daughter.
When later the general was sum summoned
moned summoned to Peking, he could think of
no finer gift to offer his sovereign
than his daughter. The emperor
found her so charming that he
made her his wife. When her hus husband
band husband died, in 1881, this slave slave-empress

Frank Morehead did the shoot shooting
