A MAYORALTY COMEDYj

A MAYORALTY COMEDY From the town of Hohenmoelsen in the small principality of Reuss, Ger- many, comes an amusing episode in the struggle of the rulers against Social- ism. A Socialist named Herzog was elected Mayor and Registrar for the town. The duke, however, considered that a man of such views could be only a danger to the State in these positions and divested him of oiffce. Almost simultaneously, however, Her- zog was elected to the assessment com- mittee of the town and to the chair- manship of the oouncil. This post he refused. But it was found impossible to secure anyone else with the neces- sary qualification to undertake the duties, and in the result the county council intervened and intimated that if Herzog did not take office proceed- ings would be begun against him. The death is announced of Mrs. Hannah Morgan, wife of Mr John Morgan, of Glyneithrim Farm, near Craigeeftiparc. She was 71 years of age, and, as occupier of the Cwm Clydach Woollen Factory, was in previous years a familiar ficrure as a stallholder in the flannel department at local fairs. The funeral took place at Pamtycrwys Churchyard, Craigoefnparc, on Saturday. When Fred Weller was fined 7s. 6d. at Willesden for being drunk and dis- orderly, he remarked to the magis- trate: "Tell you what you can do, guv'nor, you can have four and a tan- ner and the other bit on Saturday." The magistrate accepted the offer, and told the man to bring the balance on Saturday. Weller: What, bring it here? Why, that's a day's work. Justifying a window-smashing exploit for which he was before the Tunbridge Wells Bench, a tramp said: "I only did it to get a night's lodging. I con- sidered I was justified in smashing win- dows, because Suffragists are doing it all over the place in this holy war. We tramps are a perfectly inoffensive class of men. If we had worse characters we should have more thought of us." He was sentenced to six weeks' hard labour
