attention The Republicans are seeking to evade the provisions of the new election law Within the last lew days one of their schemes has been exposed It is this A laboring man is hired to work for some Republican at fair wages and re moves from his voting precinct to the precinct in which he fiuds employment thus losing his vote Several cases of this kind have occurred iu this county siuce the 5th day of October and there is evidently a pre concerted effort being made by Republi cans to gain votes in this way There are twelve thousand precincts iu the state and a loss of one voie in each pre cinct would give the state io tbe Repub licans There never has beeu a more disreputable politician in Indiana than Micherer He is as bad as Dudley and will stoop to anything that gives promise of

in Halifax between Greene the mate of a Nantuckct vessel and the Duke of Clarence ailmial of the Britiish fleet and afterwards William IV The dispute arose over the dukes at tentions to a girl and reached its climax in the Nantucket mates seizing the future king of England ami hurling him downstairs An eyewitness of the affair WAS wont in after years to add as a tlec ratTe detail that the click of the dukes swordhilt was heard on every Etair Greene at once went aboard his ship and refused to obey a summons from the ad miral who it afterwards transpired bad intended to make the plucky Nanlucket man an officer in the British army All the strategic resources of a quick ready mind were oftea called iiilo pluy during a whalemans career not only in weathering storms and avoiding destruc tion of boats and loss of life when at tacking whalesbut also in escaping mas sacre from savage islanders and in out witting pirates In 1S19 the whale ship Siren while ou a voyage to the eastward ot Cape Horn met with an adventure which would have proved fatal to all hands but for a quick stratagem of the mate Ous fine day off one of thjs Pelew islands all the boats being after whnles and but a few men left aboard the vessel a large band jf armed natives suddenly swarmed over the bulwarks The crew fled to the rieging leaving the naked howling savages in full command of the ship The mate on coming alongside took in the situation at a glance and quickly ordered the men to ouen the arm chests and scatter on deck ull the tacks they could nod lu a moment it fairly rained tacks upon the nacked savages The deck was soon covered with these little nails They pierced the feet of the islanders who danced about with pain which increased with every step they took unli with yells of rago and agony they tumbled iicadong into the sea and swam ashore Unfortunately in the strug gle the mate received an arrowwound just over one of his eyesaud was obliged to retire from the sea a v Kobbe in the

leather in Russia sent them to Kitiff to be mended where they remained II is now reported from Kieff that the archbishop of St Sophia proposes to resole the shoes and then expose them to the veneration of the faithful Throwing tho Slipper The ancient custom of throwing an old slipper after the bride aud bridegroom when starting on their honeymoon tour is in many parts of the world supposed to bring luck to the happy pair The Bible jrives much evidence in support of the sup position that it is one of the most ancient as wel as one of the most inexplicable of the many customs of the Jews In several places in the Bible we are Riven to under stand that the receiving of a shoe is an evidence and symbol of rejecting or resign ing authority In Ruth we read that it was the custom in Israel concerning changing that a man pluck off his shoe and deliver it to his neighbor Therefore the throwing of a slipper or a shoe after a bride was and la n symbol or renunciation of dominion and authority over her bv her parents or guard ian and tho receipt of the shoe by the bridegroom even if accidental was an onsen that the authority had been trans ferred to him The origin of the custom may be traced to these words which occur in the106th Psalm Over Edom will I cast out my shoe meaning thereby that success should attend the methods used to subdue the Edomitea Ib ia not unlikely there fore that the superstitious custom of throwing the slipper has arisen from the above construction of the words given The custom as It originally existed is fast dying out Our forefathers threw old shoes after the wedding equipage We in this more luxurious age purchase new white sati D slippers on purpose for the oc Louis Republic Honesty Pays Beat I tell you said a postal clerk in the railway mail service to a reporter that the crooked man in this business doesnt go very long before he ia unearthed In addition to the magnificent and perfect de tective system of the government every postal clerk iu the service is a detective en the others When a department ia sus pected every man in it is under suspicion and the innocent clerks are as anxious aa the officials to
