8 TgE lOLA DAILY HEC.'ISTER. TCESPAY EnXDiG. OCTOBER goj IflOs. 11 THE MAN AROUND TOWN "I^Tfould liheto know what there is ahdut my appearance that makes people think I am a lawyer," said Sheriff C. 0. Bollinger, a few days ago. "'Mayfie it is your reputation," meekly suggested the reporter. "Well, I don't think It is. I have always' tried to tell the truth and have succeeded fairly well." "Maybe it is your intellpctnal brow," was the second guess of the pencil pusher. •Well, now that may be it." said Mii. Bollinger, swelling up consider- abiy. "In any evont I have beoii taken for two or three different attorneys in the past few days. The other day I was going down the street when a woman, somewhat excited, stopped me and addressed me as Mr. Ritter. Before T ooiild explain that I was the sheriff and not Mr. Ritter. she had gone over every detail of a suit for divorce she was,bringing. A few days before that a man called roe Mr. Oyler, as I was leaving the court house. He was just lined out on his troubles with a neighbor when I managed to explain to hiin that he was mistaken in hats; that the man under my hat was fBoIIinger, not oy. ler. The part about it that 1 don't like Is that none of the people wlio have accosted me want to pay a fee. If they did I wonld not mind the hii- miliatlon of being called a lawyer." Then the sheriff laughed and started out on the trail of some violator! of the law. "I have been in this county for nearly fifty years and I want to say that I can hardly recall the time when the wind blew so hard for so | many successive da.vs as it did last I week," remarked A. W. Tlowland in; the probate judge's office yesterday. This was the signal for wind stories, and C. C. Ausherman was the- first man at the bat. I "Talk about wind. My stars! You; want to go out in Western Kansas. Last week 1 was out to Salina to attend the Odd Fellows' convention. On my way back I stopped off at Hcrins:- ton to see an aunt. ^Slien I got off there the wind was blowing like a hurricane. I learned that my aunt had moved to another town and that there was no train there until night. I dreaded the thought of being tied up in a strange town all day and l)e- gan to make inquiries as to any way of getting started on my way. I was told that I might ride a freight which some times carried passengers through there. The freight had then puUpd in and was almost ready to leave. I was about three blocks away and couldn't see how I was going to make it. -The wind came to me like an inspiration. I held out my arms like a pair of wings and in two jumps I had reached the freight. If the wind had been going the other direction I would not have reached my train yet" "Do you know that 1 am likely to sro •o the mad house and it is all IUH^IUISP of a mosquito, not mosquitoes, but iust one solitary mosquito." said the business man as he came down town the other morning, very irritable from havfnp spent a sleepless niiiht. "Mosquitoes, bother you? P.^liaw. To c*t rid of them is dead easv. .lust saturate the " said thf man with •he remedA- for every ill Icuown to hu- '•?!n*'ir .Ttp r-othinn" ititorruntt>.'l .tlio ' •»;;i;5«s-c Ttinn (H>;»:n «t nnd ImMMtionco >> r'l"!^ 'r pv«>rv Mnp on bis faco.
