Wblte announced the decision of the
court. None of .the Justices dissented.
The business manager and editor of
the Star are both sore because nobody
will come out and run for sheriff or
tax collector against Galloway and
Colbert, thereby adding to the interest
of the campaign and. Incidentally,
causing those Individuals to spend
more money with the newspapers. The
business manager, who obtains more
Joy out of signing receipts than in pre
paring any other kind of, literature,
suggested to the editor that he run for
sheriff against Galloway, while he. the
business manager, had a. try for Col
bert's Job. The editor is conceited
enough to believe be would make as
good a race against Galloway as any
one, but on reviewing the rum total of
his possessions, and submitting a list
of the same to Mr. B. Goldman, found
that he couldn't nawn them 'all for
enough to pay his assessment. The
. business manager, however, is con
sidering soaking his salary as. city
councilman and if he suceeds Mr. Col Colbert
bert Colbert may have a rival. It surely Isn't
right for the newspapers not to have
a little coin, which the: same is much
needed, out of these two offices.

the economic value of these birds,
found In the stomachs of three turtle
doves 23,100 hawkweed seeds, with
the seeds of several other kinds of
weeds which have caused the farmer
Inconveniences and expense during a
larger portion of the crop growing
season. These birds are much more
