The Democrat of last week broadlj intimates that. the Akgus "reporter man" was drunk because he did no know where "West University" avenue was. VVell, it may be so, but we have searched our city directory and inter viewed a number of our old citizens some of whom perhaps may not have lived here as long as the Democrat re porter however, and they are as ignorant as the Argtjs is. If the "reporter-man" of the Democrat was not a woman, it might be thought that she had neglected tofollow theadvice given by the Democrat itself .
