Not So Darned Famished.

sleigh was pursued over the frozen

An Essay on Man.
Man, born of woman, is a small
potato and few in a hill. Ile rises
up today and nourishes like a large
tweed, and tomorrow or the next day
the undertaker hath him. He goeth
ort h in the morning warbling like
a lark, and is knocked ont in one
round and two seconds.
In the middle of life he is in
debt, and the tax collector pur&ueth
him wherever he goeth. The banis
ter of life is full of splinters, and he
slideth down with considerable rap
idity. He walketh. forth in the)
bright sunlight to absorb ozone and
meeteth the bank clerk with a sight
draft for ?537. He cometh home at
eventide and meeteth the wheel
barrow in his path.. It riseth up and
smiteth him to the earth, it falleth
upon him and jamnieth one of its
legs into his ear.
In the gentle spring time he put
teth on his last summer clothes and
a blizzard striketh him afar from
him and filleth him with cuss words
and rheumatism. In the winter he
! putteth on his summer trousers, and
a wasp that abideth therein createth
Blood Hounds Needed.
After the attempt was made to j
burn the house on Mr. W. B. |
Penn's premises Saturday morning,
a dispatch was sent to Columbia for
the penitentiary bloodhounds but
the superintendent replied, that as
the dogs could not reach Edgefield
before 10 o'clock it would then be
too late to trail the party or parties
who applied the match. Had dogs
been kept at the county jail, they
could at once have been put upon
the track of the fleeing criminal.
The county should keep hounds as
a means of preventing crime. Many
a violator of the law would be de
terred from committing crime if
there were a probability of his being
rundown by bloodhounds.
The Democratic Club will meet
