A printer recently walked into n
certain business house on his rounds
to learn who desired anything in the
way of advertisement, and noticed
that a dnuminpr Flood by tho coun
ter with his sample valise ready to
open.
"Anything you want to pay in tin
paper this week?" queried the print
er of the man behind the couiUer.
"No," said the business (?) man :
"I don't believe in advertising; I
wouldn't give a cent for any amount
of advertising."
The drummer waited until the
printer was halfway to the door, and
then slowly taking up his valises
remarked :
"Well, that lets me out. 1 do not
care to sell on lime to any man who
in t'.is age does not believe in adver
tising. 1 prefer to deal with live men.
When I want to strike up a trade
with a dead man, J will go to the
graveyard and swap tombstones.
Good day, sir."

Wo Choetaws think we are ahead
of our neighboring nations in the
rearing of stoek. and we are making
great improvements in that line.
Durir ;w past year wo have nt
only shipped several thousand head,
but have driven about as many be
sides. O.ir Htoi-k increases fast and
grows ofl' rapidly. A citizen of our
district ( Mosholatubbee) bus a small
sow that became the mother of twenty-one
piis a few nights sineo. An
other neighbor's cow brought forth
a fine calf with five legs, so we think
we are at least a foot ahead of our
neighbors in the stock race. The
owners of those extraordinary moth
ers propose to attend ourn i.t Inter
national fair to exhibit their won
derful stoek.

Enofrio Baca, the murderer of
Conklin, has had a career which re
minds one of that of Solomon (Jrun
dy, the fastest man on record. Baca
grew up not so rapidly, to bo sure,
as Grundy, but recently he has made
almost as good time as that noted
character of nursery fame. At Sori
gosa, New Mexico, two days before
his capture by Sergeant Gillette, of
the Texas Rangers, Baca took unto
himself a wife, selected from among
the handsomest senoritas of old
Mexico's first families. Tho cere-

Sunday afternoon :
"Old friend, hero's one for remem
brance. Think you not that we, in
craft, have this clay borne you from
our midst to the silent, lonely city
of tho dead, wo recognize that we
have laid away one the truest, pur
est, waMmest-hoarted friends that ev
r sailed with us down the stream
of time? Think you not that, with
the moisture of the heavens over ns
we too, are shedding silent tears,
that the 'chase' of our companion
ship is broken ; thatthe 'lines' of our
being must henceforth run apart;
that your presence is no longer a
'eopyr among us ; that your thought
ful though pleasant Mace' no longer
illuminates or cheers our midst?
And think you not in this parting
tribute we who have known you tho
longest and best, do not temper our
grief with the reflection that in the
eternity to which you have gone, the
pains, the sorrows, the disappoint
ments which were yours not earn
ed, but a heritage are over, and
that though the 'space between be
ever so slight, it encompasses a free
dom and a joy that was never yours?
Old friend, rest on. There is no more
'night work.' Day has dawned. The
sod above your grave will not be
givener than tho memories you have
left behind you. The birds that car
ol in these tree-tops can make no
sweeter, purer melody than will tho
'impressions' you have left behind.
The rose and the violet will blossom
beside the khtono' that marks your
resting place, will give no sweeter
perfume than the fragrant place you
held in the 'columns' of our affec
tionate regard. The clods that must
forever hide you from our gaze, but
hints the borne from which no trav
eler returns, and to which the best
of us must soon bear you company.
Kerns, we shall miss you the 'light'
of other days. Keep the 'form' open.
Wo arc all soon 'dead.' "
