But one door

--It is a little singular, if not unaccountable, that bar rooms should be kept and liquors sold to drink in houses that have but a single door. One of the ordinances of the city requires all barrooms to be closed on Sunday, and for failing to do so, imposes a fine on the keeper of $30. As this ordinance was designed to prevent Sunday drunkenness, the police are right in its enforcement. They rarely report a man, however, who does not give as an excuse that he has but one door to his house, and that one is merely kept open for the use of his family.
