An occasional tramp strays into town and the manner in which a majority of the race deport themselves would indicate that they were "old men on the road." We believe in being charitably disposed toward individuals who have met with personal misfortunes and all that, but when a man has the gall to demand a night's lodging on the plea of being penniless when the odor of Lyle whisky permeates the air around him we generally feel as though the proper place to stow him away for the night is in the calaboose. It's an easy matter to go broke in Lyle.
