Winter Events Vary With the Weather New England' wcailier prophets arc •muttering in their beards these days. All bets on the wcatliei- ;ire off in Vermont becmise a Burlington hunter shot the ground-hog before groinu'thog day, while in Maine a (lock of wild geese was scon heading due north during o!ic of the coldest spells of the winter, leading people- to suspect Hint something is wrong either with the .•Winter or the geese. But these incidents are only samples of the general midwinter topsy- lurvincss. The Japanese government ;imioimces that it will seek to restore I'riendsliip belu'een Jjijmn ami China, and on the same day starts '1,000 men heading for the borders of Chahar province with all the implements of war. Luiie Velez and Johnny Woissmul- have undergone their llth reconciliation and the state of Nevada has filed mil to collect taxes oil ten .steamships operated out of the port of New York.' '*"• * * * The chief of the lire department nl Jlarblehead, Mass., has resigned because he can't induce his firemen to go to fires with him any more, and a merchant in Birmingham, Ala., has won a ?500 verdict against his lodge brothers because they kicked him in the pants while giving him a fraternal .,... A New York gentleman is 'taken in by the police for begging, and ho explains in court that he was simply standing in the street with his hat off so that -the breeze would make his hair grow, and could he help it if well- meaning strangers dropped $8 worth of nickels and dimes into his hat while he was doing it? Meanwhile, a St. Louis girl, who couldn't take time off from her job to go to the marriage license bureau, sends a girl friend off with her fiance to get the document, and learns to her horror that the 'l\vo nol only obtained the license, but got married with it. * * * The sheriff of Kobci'taon comity, Tenn., running shy of deputies, has taken to arresting people by telephone and reports that so far, u u one has refused to come in to the jail and be locked up on request. Another telephone angle gels into the day's news when a New York phone girl has her cx-swcetic arrested for calling her up 130 times in one evening. And, to cap Uio climax, Chicago detectives arrest two .colored men for trying to operate a "rent a gun and shoot it yourself" agency, seining the 28 revolvers with which the men were e<)in'pped and lodging the men In jail. To all of which you may add whatever moral seems to you possible in the circumstances. —Unite Cation. How a Legal Mind The miming way in which some persons can follow legal formalism regardless of the hiiman issues at stake is illustrated by a current case in the Texas courts, whore someone's mistake in writing a date may menu the difference between life and death for , a convicted criminal. ' A (Texan was convicted of murder and sentenced to electrocution. ICarly in January the then governor, Miriam Ferguson, issued a commutation, and Die judge before whom the case ap- licared prepared to change the sentence to one, of life imprisonment. Then it was discovered that a careless clerk', in making out the commutation, had 'dated it Jan. 8, 193/1, i, : . stead of 1935. So the judge has ruled the document invalid and | la .s suntenced the man to thu electric chair on March 8!
