The new Mayor of Glenville, Ohio, is a gradúate of Michigan University, and is working off his college poems on his constituents. In liis inaugural message lic begins by saying: - Oood burghers all, thls proclamatlon, Sbould beueflt cur corporatlou. After which he proceeds to pive advice as follows: - At !i p. M. I think lt best Kach sheet sbould seek ltsdowny nest. And on thepeaceful vlllage street No calf sbould beaüowed to bleat. I wiirn all evll-dolng seamps Tbey must not bust the vtllage lampe, And at i toughs who wil 1 get drunk. The ey e of J ustlce sball not wunk. Tlien certain niuniciple laws are referred to:- Noclrcusesshall show la town l'nlesB with boodle they come down. And stranger's cattle shall not graze Around, unless thelr owner pays. Tliis method lias its merits and its drawbacks. It relieves the monotony of official (locuments, but, on the otherhand, lt gives a tinge of romance to hard and commonplace lacts. Th citizens would in time become dreamers instead of doers.
