OLD MAN SAnKEY.
fie Could Tell n Tail Yarn, but There
"Ole man Sarkoy, " remarked tho mmi
with whlto whiskers nnd nothing to do,
"wus tho diugdest feller fur tellin on
tnio yarns thct ever I see. An, liko all
people 'at tries tcr doceivo their follor

"How did it happen?" Inquired tho
"His wust rassles weth tho truth

When tho conversation 'ud turn on cy
clones cr tornadoes er simoons or any
Bcch things, ho conld git tho upper hand
o' his cousoienco bettcr'u any man I
ever know. His favorito suhjcot was ,
"Hailstones n big as hens' eggst"

passin tho houso, an it looked so much
liko rain that wo stopped in. Woll, sir,
wo hadn't got no moro'n. sot down than
olo man Sarkcy started in said tho sky
looked jca' liko it did ono timo when it
hailed down hailstones thot was cz big
cz hens' eggs. Ono of his chickens that
was standiu on tho edgo of tho poicu
clucked woth nil her might an grubbed
him by tho pants leg. But ho jes' shooed
'or away. Don't you know, somo of us
fellers suspected then ez thot chicken
was tryln tcr express how shocked sho
was nt tho way ho was a dcalin woth
"It seemed liko an intelligent chicken,
"Intelligent? It's my bolicf thct

It hudn't boon raiuin fur only a fow

seen tho chickin noticin it too. Purty
soon a hailBtono lit on tho porch. It
was a good sized ono, an I didn't expect
anything except thet it 'ud furnish tho
text fur another whopper. But quick ea
it happened thct chickin walked ovor

jes' shot tho olo man right up, an I

tho fact that though a man kin go

long whilo, sooner or later ho's bonn

Tho storekeeper leaned his elbows on
tho counter and his faco on his hands.
. "Well." ho said reflectively, "I'm
