Rules for guests in the Old West

Another interesting piece of historical information provided by the St. James Hotel in Cimarron, NM (which I reviewed yesterday) was this sheet of house rules from its early days.  It made me both laugh and shake my head.  Click the image for a larger view.

I'm not sure how authentic some of those rules were, but they certainly have the flavor of the Old West.  As L. P. Hartley observed, "The past is a foreign country; they do things differently there."

Not terribly authentic, but they are funny.

How could you not like the rules.
