THURSDAY, MAY 14, 1908.
I am in receipt of a number of
anonyinous communications. I
do not attribute the writing of
them to any person of standing
in the conmniunity. People of
honor do not resort to such
methods. I have only a feeling
of contempt and pity for the
author, who is known to me.

A trivi~a incident of daily oc
currence, that never fails to
interest passers-by, may be wit
nessed about 1 p. m. in a cross
street below Fulton street, and
just off Broadway. There
stands, with never failing reg
ularity, a black horse attached
to a light wagon. There, too,
passes at that hour a business
man on his way back from
The business man approaches
the horse. The horse pricks up
his ears, then thrusts forward
his nose, and begins a sniffing
investigation of the man's coat
pockets. Soon the man - pro
duces two lumps of sugar, pur
loined from his eating place.
The horse proimptly consumes
them, and the man passes.

MR. BOMER OF BOOMTON
The town Is on a boom at last.
Anti verything is going
As lovely as molasses, fast
As ralid rivers flowing.
New stores have started. Binks & Co.
Iave built a handsome building;
New lines of business make a show
With signs In fancy gilding.
Yes. Ulnoniton now is in the running
Since Mr. E.oonier went a-gunning.
Tlo place has taken on an air
And not a citizen would dare
To call the town inferior.
A dozen peirsons. more or less,

How far the village will progavees
There Isn't any tellihg
Since with his weapon Mr. Boomer
Went forth one day In wrathful humo
There used to be some men, you see,
Who took delight In knocking.
Their number was but two or three,
But what they did was shocking.
When any person would propose
A little town improvement
These fellows swatted In the nose
That new. progressive movement.
Then Mr. Boomer up tand loaded
171s little gun, to anger goaded.
Result: A quito imrcdIate growth
Of Boomton's cemetery.
And no good citizens were loath
To make the funerals mesry.
Then Boomton just began to grow,
'Twas like a place enchanted.
For all the boomers had a show
With all the knockers planted.
Which shows that real town impro,
