Terrible Consequences!
One. year, when the harvest in
the United, States had been ex
ceptionally good, a certain vera
cious sheet'broke the glad tidings
as follows:
"Terrible news comes from the
western part of Cherokee Nation.
It seems that a boy climbed- a
cornstalk tp see how the corn was
getting along, and now the stalk
is growing up faster than the boy
can' climb down! The boy is clear
out of sight. Three men have un
dertaken to cut the stalk down
with axes and save the boy from
starvation, bu-it grows so fast
that they can't hack twice in tjxe
same place. The boy is living on
nothing but raw corn, and has al
ready thrown down four bushels
of cobs.""
