FRIDAY, AUG. 11, 1883.
Old bow-legged Jala-, a coloured
mini of high .standing uiul extreme
liliieUiiL'ss, entered the county clerk's
olllce. ami sniil "Boss, 1 wants upar
oh nmiringe licence. The a ole man,
but IVe gwino to niarry one oh dc
youngest gals in dis community."
"Have thu patents of the girl any
objections to the marriage?" asked
the clerk, hesitating as to whether oi
not the licence should be issued.
"Hit iloan seem so tor inc." "Did
vou ask the old man's consent?"
"No, sah." "How do you know
then that he does not object?' "Well,
yurs.ee, I has been callin' on dc
young lady for some time, an' las'
night de ole man como in, tuck down
a army gun, an' said dat lie reckon
ed me an' Lindy ouglitcr get married.
Dis mornin' he come ober ter my
house wid dc gun, an' said sutliin'
about my goin' at once an' gettcn de
licence. I told him dat I had a wife
somcwlmr in dc country, but lie cock
ed de ole gun an' looked so sad like
dat 1 struck n trot for dis olllce."
" If you have a living wife, old man
I can't issue a licence." "But,
boss, dis is one ob dese stringent
cases. De fadder ob de gal is stand
in' out at de corner ob de house wid
dat army gun. It's better, boss,
for a man to hah two libin' wives
dan it is for a 'oman ter hub one
dead husband." Finally the old man
with the gun was induced to come
into the olllce and explain. "Well,
yer see, boss," he said, "old Jake
had been burnin' my oil an' wcarin
out de bottoms ob my clmirs long
enough, lie's been catin' at my
house more' n a year, courtin' my
gal, an' now I wants him to board
de gal a while. Kf he don't I'll hab
to injure him." After a while, how
ever, the old man agreed that, if
Jake would pay him live dollars, the
affair should be settled without mar
riage. An old lady from one of the rural
districts astonished a clerk iu onu
of the stores by inquiring it they
had any "yaller developments, sich
as they did up letteis in."
