A little item inserted in these columns some weeks ago without any desire to give oíFense, so piqued an editor of a country exchange that he endeavorcd to retalíate by making what he considered as severe a charge against the editor of this paper as he could. So he accused us of having once upon a time edited a prohibition paper. There was not the least foundation for the charge. VVith as much foundation might he have accused us of murder. He corrected the accusation the following week, but the lie seems to be travelling around among some of our exchanges. A good joke is related on the deputy game warden and one of our good natured doctors. A colored fish peddler in town last week, brought some bass for the said doctor, by previous arrangement, and the game warden catching sight of them, volunteered the information that it was unlawful to catch said fish. The doctor became frightened, and while the warden was hunting up the law in question, took the fish back to the peddler, who also caught the scare infection and hustled out of town as fast as he could go. After he had gone it was found that the bass had been caught in Lake Ene, where the law makes an exception, only applying to the interior waters of the state, but the doctor had lost his fish. - Saline Observer.
