firm of Ferguson and Morris, was
seen seated in the buggy behind
the "old gray" wet with sweat
and with foam on the bit, slowly
and meditatively returning from
Ward One, where he had gone at
the call on the phone, to com?
quick and get a dead man. He
too had been hoaxed. On oui
way back we found the grave
digger in chief, seated in the of
fice of one of these undertakers,
ooking like the chief mourner ai
his own funeral; he too it ap
pears had been April fooled
And these three firms of under
takers at their respective place
of business, picked un a copy o
The Southern Indicator and rea<
from it the following lines.
Alas! Alas! O'Lackaday!
What three mocked fools thes
mortals be!"
Speaking of Aprils Fool's Day
reminds us of an incident tha
happened some years ago. Ol
man Sizer kept a hotel in
little country town in Wester
North Carolina. He had a ne'e
do well son named Dennis, wh
loafed around the hotel and rei
dered but little service. Denn
had a habit of looking over tr
shoulders of the guests whi
they sat at the desk writing the
letters. One young fellow r
cently arrived and of a poet
frame of mind, whil? writing
his best girl, happened to fe
some one brushing up behii
him. He had heard of Denni
propensity, and without appare
stop or hesitancy continued 1
writing and penned these lines
"I've seen some men who we
very wise,
And then again some wiser;
But the biggest fool I've e\
seen
His name is Dennis Sizer."
Dennis moved away and i
noyed him never again.
