Warned To Stay Away
"A man runs across some peculiar things when looking up his ancestry," said a traveler the other day, according to the St. Louis Globe-Democrat. ''When my own lineage in New Hampshire I discovered that my was warnea oy a town notto come into the town. I wondered what he had done to make hhnself obnoxious, and when I learned that, notwithstanding the warning, he did move into the place, I admired his assurance, but thoug-ht him in self-respect. The matter was explained to me by the seeretary of state. It was the custom for anyone intending to remove into a town to g-ive notice of such intention. At the next regular town meeting he was warned to stav uwuy, because the law provided that if this was doue the town would not be Hable for his support in case he became a pauper. It was not a matter of disfrace or personal ill-will, but purely a precaution to cover possible future finaneial reverses."
