Aiiout the biggest "little excite-

was pulled oil yesterday morning
when Dr. Johnson, known as pussy-

came into town and assisted by a
few members of the loeal W. C. T. U.
raided some of the numerous joints
Several bottles of whisky and beer
were found "hid-out” and the deputy
and assistants weren’t long in taking
| charge of them. In the meantime
jointists could be seen hurrying
hither and thither supposedly taking
their wares to a place of safety.

cured search warrants for various

Dear Sirs: School laws of ltHis.
Mouse Bill No 31, relating* to compul-
sory attendance in the public school?
of this state, makes it mandatory
upon all school boards, boards of
education in cities of the first-class,
} city superintendents, teachers of
other schools, truant officers, to
, perform duties as laid down under
the prov Dions of this net.
Section I. of the laws above refer-
red to, makes in unlawful for any
1 parent or guardian, to neglect or re-
fuse to cause, or compel any person,
! <»r persons, who are, or may be. un-
! der their control as children of such
ward, to comply with the of
some public or private school fo. :*
I term of not less than three nor more
1 than six months.
.Section 2, of this act makes it the
duty of the boards of education in
■ the cities, or district boards in
' school districts, to turiiish tin* sup-
i erintendent of city st bools, or teaeh-
I ers in other schools, at tile begin-
' r.ing of the first of the term of each
school year, a list containing tin*
i names of all the children residing
.within the district who are between
s and 1*> years of age, and to require
a report from (he superintendent or
j teachers in other schools not less
than H, nor more than 2 weeks be-
fore the close of the school year.
In cities or incorporated towns or
villages, the hoard of education may
appoint one or more truant officers,
| w hose duty it shall be to enforce the
provisions of this act in the manner
.provided under the law.
I recommend that all boards of
cities and incoporated towns appoint
I truant officers to enforce the provis-

• the duty of the hoard to enforce
these laws, and in-as-much as there
| are no salaries attached to school
boards I do not feel that they should
lose tiie time necessary to enforce
, this law.
Sections 3 and 4 makes provisions
to furnish any parent, guardiadn or
custodian, who is finanicialiy un-
nalile to furnish their children with
the necessary books with which to

I desire to say that we have been
very lenient in regard to the enforce-

A “Bad Indian.”
Wednesday evening, John Squire
an Indian living out east of Mounds
raised quite a disturbance here.
It seems that Squire and his wife
and little child had come to town
and during the afternoon he got
tanked up oil hud booze and started
home in this condition. When they
got out as far as Eliuer f’hilton's
residence Squire and his wifi- got
into some kind of a dispute and
Squire threatened to kill his wife.
Tiie indian woman wild with fright
jumped from the buggy with her
baby in her arms and run, into the
Chilton house before the drunken
Indian could carry out his threats.
Marshal Herod was immediately
sent for but urrived on the scene too
late. Squire started on out to his
home but reports from there yester-
day morning are that he did not ar-
rive home until the "wee” hours of
morning and he was walking.
We understand that he had a run-
away out by the White farm east of
town. Mrs. Squire and child left
Thursday morning for Wealaka
where they have relatives.
Squire is generally known as u
"bad indian” in this section and it
is nothing more than can be expect
ed of him.

District School Opens.
The District School opened last
Monday with an enrollment of 137
which in view of the fact that only
up to the seventh grade are taught
is a fair showing. A great many of
the pupils did not start on the first
day on account of the very hot
weather and many of them won’t
start yet for a week or so. The
school this year promises to be very
