Main street from the public square

al hundred per cent better than it has
been since the first excavation was
made for the water system last sum
mer. For this splendid work the peo

ed undertaking, bat these two citi
zens took the initiative and pressed
the matter to a successful conclu
sion. Buncombe needs just such work
done over there.

In Days of Old.
A man once had a big old cellar
Underneath a big old house;
In-it-lived a tiny fellow,
A timid little gray mouse.
The man had a barrel of corn booze,
Stored away for future use,
And some of it would always ooze
Out where he drew the juice.
The little mouse saw these tiny drops
And as he was awful dry,
It made him frisk and lick his chops,
But he was afraid the cat was nigh.
At last he decided to make a try
In spite of the old cat;
So he stole out timidly, bye and bye,
To where the barrel sat.
His little heart trembled as he licked
Just a little of the juice;
The cat might be near and he'd be
So back he went to his roost.
Somehow his fear began to disappear
And he said "Doggone that cat,
What if he is round about here,
I'll take some more bf that."
He looked about and started out
To where the barrel was at,
And he took a good one, no doubt
For he said "Who's afraid of a cat?"
He marched back with bristles raised
His tail curled over his back,
He said, "I have that old cat dazed,
I've got him under the hock."
He jumped up and down and waltzed
Went over and took some more;
He said, "If I had that old cat, con
I sure would lick him sore."
He sipped some ^ore, yelled "Hip
I am a whole army of rats,
I will just start out this very day
And kill all the infernal cats."
