The Weekly Expositor J. A. Mekzies, Editor and 1'rop. UUOCKWAY CENTUE, MICH NOTES OF THE DAY. Onk of the charges against a Califor nia judge is that of frivolity, and the specification U that he puts his hair in paper every night, woman fashion, to mako it curl when ho is on tho bench next day. Louisville, Kv., is having a tiino muddle. Tho banks there refuse to recognize standard time until the may or officially declares it tho time of tho city; some of the schools are kept on the old time aud others on standard time, and although tho railroad companies run trains on the new time, they require their employes to work on tho old hours. A convict who escaped from tho Louisiana state prison walked hard all day, and by daylight was 40 miles away. Fearing detection by means of his strip ed garb, he went boldly into a Negro farmhouse, told the owner that ho was a circus performer disabled by rheuma tism, and offered to swap tho costume for any old suit of ordinary clothes. The bargain was...

Senator Plumb said In the Senate a few days ago that the United States army of 25,000 men costs within half a million of dollars of the sum spent upon the German army of 400,000 Tien, so that what the Unitod States army lacks in numbers it makes up in pay.
