Old .J. D. Mooto in Greenville.
Sometimes up and often down.
Most all the time on the West
End of town.
Now, Mr. Editor, I'm getting
along.very well here-having a

I can make more money here
in one day than I could in Pick
ens or Easley in a week. I don't
mean this for any reflection on
the little tqwts, for Pickens
sure feels like home to me.
Like the *enug man who
wanted to matry a girl. She
kept putting hnim off by saying
she did not knotw. "Well," he
says, "if it comes to the come
you have to say yes or no." So

I have been like the cat in the
well. Would climb up one foot
and fall back two. So at that
rate you will soon get through.
There is diversity of opinion
as to what broke me up. Some
say drinking, some say selling
on credit, some say women.
But I want to tell you it was
neither one, but the three com
bined that done the work.
So I confess, and an honest
confession is good for the soul.

My neighbbr's'hought a motor
car, in which hetravels f ast and

tented just to walk, \vhen I
must chase around a block. My
sonl for splendor 'nevci begs-I
point with pride 'to my fat legs.
Thei'e ar'e i'o better legs in towvn;
they bear me gailyiup and down,
thriough crowdedstreet anal quiet
lane, and ne'er revolt, and no'er
complain. I (do not have to
paint, them gr'een or fill them
upl with gasoline,'or fuss around
with wrench and maul, to make
the blamed things go at all. I
do not carry traps- in kegs, to
make repairs on'iy fat legs;
I do not send them to the shop,
because they don't blowv up or
stop: they do not skid or bUst Ea
tire, or leave me stranded In the,
mire. They do not run poor I
victims down, and mash them
up from heels to crown; they do
not honk or hiss or toot, to scare c
some horseman's nervous brute. t
Year after year they bravely
walk, my good fat legs, that c
never balk. I would not trade
my trusty limbs for any car that
snorts and skims beneath its
load of idle rich, until it dumps
them in the ditch.-Walt Mason.

Winter, stern and solemn king, L
Would your praises I might sing
But here lately
I have had too bad a cold e
All your charms in stately tones,
For in truth my spirit groans
Underneath the hacking cough
That refuses to get off,
And I hack and hack away
Every moment. night and day,
Till ny head is nearly split
With this very sad misfit.
You have many charms,I know;
Highly mentioned is your snow
As it falls in fleecy flakes
On the rivers and the lakes,
As in stately drifts it piles ti
Till it almost hides the tiles 0
Dn the little summer cot
On the forty-acre lot;
But I can't complete the verse s
With chilblains growing worse, ri

Will not cure them worth a. cent, a
And your praise I must forego el
While I doctor up my toe.
