WEDNESDAY, MARCH 7, 1883.
THE LAST STRAW.
A colored innii walked up mid
down the Post-ofllcc corridor on
Wednesday in r inmincr which soon
nttrneted nttcnslon, mid n gcntlcninu
Mho knew him Inquired if anything
"No, not zactly wrong."
"I didn't know hut you had
received A letter with bad news in
"No, sad, dc trouble nm 1 donn'
receive miv letters Mall. Izc bin in
Detroit obcr two y'nrs, nn' izc called
nenh about a thousand times, an'
dcy nllus tell me de letter hasn't in
"Arc you expecting letters?"
"I should rather remark dat I was !
I ortcr have twenty-four from St.
Louis, thirteen from Illinois, six
from Nilcs, two from Boston, and
hcvcn from Toledo."
"Have you inquired at the window
"Izc just gwinc to now, but I
know jist how it will work. I'll ask
If dar' mn any letters fur Thomas
Moonstone, an' dc lady will whirl dc
mashcen aroun, grab a han'ful of
letters, run 'cm ober, an' shake her
"Perhaps not; I'll go with you."
The two walked to the general
delivery window, the colored man
gave his name, and then things hap
pened just as ho said they would.
There was no letter for him.
"Didn't I say so? Didn't I tell
von I wouldn't sit nullin'?" he'
exclaimed, as he danced around and
gestured like an orator. "Am this
posoflls lur dc benefit of de hull
publick, or am it ran in the interests
of a favored few? Ize dun axin' fur
mail, sah! I doan want to h'ar from
nobody! I won't write to nobody!
If any letters cum fur mc I won't
take 'cm ! Dis am de las' straw, an'
de camel's back am dun broke!"
