Stick to Your Bush.
Several Ooys went into a chincapin
thicket to gather chincapins, and the
most of them kept running from one
bush to another, to find the place
where they grew in the greatest abun
dance, and were the easiest gathered.
When the hunt was over it was found
that the boy, who had stuck to one
bush until lie had picked all he could
find thereon, had twice as many
chincapins as any of the rest. He
explained his success by saying that
he had used all his time picking

Accordingly, the 26th of August
was the day fixed for the meeting.
Notwithstanding the busy time in
the way of gathering and saving
fodder, a large crowd of all the best
people in the community, ladios and
gentlemen assembled on the ground
at an early hour, where a speaker's
stand had been erected, and seats
arranged for the audience. The
number in attendance of the best
people in the country, was itself an
earnest of success to the cause which
had brought them together. Speech

About one hour and a half was
spent in partaking of the most boun

And with it comes the Shoes,
For every little girl and boy,

Some Shoes cut high, some are loiv,
Some water proof to wear in snow.
If you get a Shoe too large
Return, exchange with uncle George,
In August when the sun was warm,
Some Shoes fit pretty tight,
But never pinch good honest men
Who always do just right,
Some are leather, some copper tips,
Some I warrant not to rip.
No\v come on and see the Shoes,
Bound to fit, wont hurt your toes,
Nearly all kinds, at all prices,
And some of the very nicest
And never failed to fit but once.
This is the way the story runs;
A man came in with feet like blocks,
Could't wear Shoes but took the box.
When he went out he made a noise
To attract attention of the boys,
And this is what he said:
"Stand back dead beats,
Go in your don,
And 1Nave room for honest men,
Men who pay their debts,
Rich and poor, all who need it,
And haven't the cash can get credit."
