Inasmuch as the Prohibition Amendment, as enforced, has always resulted in injury to the material development of our townit having signally failed to accomplish the object sought, the suppression of the sale and use of intoxicating drinkswe would respectfully urge upon you the necessity of so providing for the enforcement of the law that its application shall be uniform throughout the State. If this is impossible, don't sacrifice our town on the altar of inordinate devotion to an impracticable principle.

A WILD SCENE. John Nichols' barber shop was in pandemonium Saturday. Its close proximity to the auction square has several times caused wild experiences, but this takes the medal. A Buck, finding no better way to give vent to his determination to leave the auction block, darted into the barber shop. John grabbed his razorbut scarce had raised it, when the "m-o-o, m-o-o" of a burly Bull broke into the door, followed by the Bull himself. Well, you bet, things were lively. In a marvelously short space of time that Bull had cleaned out the shop and he was monarch of all he surveyedbut, lo! Look!! Here comes a Bear! Is death inevitable? Look, look, he comes! and in darted a regular live Bear! The Bull held the fort nobly, but the room wasn't big enough for defensehe couldn't use his horns, and the Bear soon drove him pell mell out the front doorwith a rush that left wool behind, scattered all around. It was the wildest congregation of names that has met in some time: Mr. Buck, August Kadau's cobbler; Dr. Bull, the dentist; and Mr. Bear, the mechanic.
