the nations of the world seem to know the timid nature of the Cleveland administration quite As Well As americans do months ago France was asked to furnish a copy of the papers in the Case of a Consul Waller who is now in a French prison and it refused an unprecedented thing to do another demand has since been made for the papers and state department officials express the opinion that another refusal will in due course be made meanwhile an american citizen is languishing in a French prison on what he claims to be trumped up charges and an unfair trial this administration seems to be opposed to Protection for americans either at Home or abroad it is estimated that there Are about 1500 people in Tyrone who smoke cigars j and allowing that the average con sumption is fire for each person the total would be 7500 cigars a this nay seem overdrawn but it is known that Many persons smoke feta fifteen to Twenty a Das while Aoa of course smoke Les than one a Day on an aver age if Thev smoke at All so the Esti mate May not be so very wide of the Mark estimating last As Many cigars go out of town from the factories As come in from other factories this Industry in itself to already an

hardware store is a Sample of hitching weight is neat and no doubt will answer the purpose first rate for which it is in tended and in time we Hope All the unsightly hitching posts on the prominent streets will be replaced by a Complete system of these weights for hitching purposes a Tyrone it would give the town a More like appearance and would harmonize with the otherwise neat and attractive appearance of our streets speaking of weights for pitching Pur poses a horse to matter How tame he May be should not be left stand on the Street eclied the most docile animal is liable to and life is always endangered by the runaway in a town besides a hitched horses standing on the Street Are liable and frequently do destroy Shade Trees this is an outrage and to discouraging to those who in deader to beautify and make their prop Erpf comfortable by cultivating and rearing Shade Trees along the curb every delivery Wagon in town and every other vehicle that Baa occasion to make frequent stops along the streets should be provided with a weight to prevent runaways and protect the Trees from destruction As Drivers of milk wagons usually remain in their wagons if would Perua be inconvenient and indeed unnecessary for them to use the weight but it is certainly not the proper thing for them to carelessly allow their horses to injure Trees while they Are dealing out milk to customers which a sometimes the Case it would be a first rate thing if a sys Tern of weights were adopted and we Hope in the interest of cleanliness and in the interest of the Shade tree that it will not be far Distant be careful in cashing there not always Worth the Cash a Good piece of advice to our people is that they should be everlastingly Vig Ilant and punctilious by careful about giving up
