I'nlchtns n Calf.
Henry Carter, a colored man, experi
enced no little trouble In catching that
c.ilf op. Walnut Mrect Tuesday morning.
The call's mother wits elom nt hand, and
when Henry got iter otJsprlng by the tall
and liegan twl'tlng It to make the calf
walk uloncr, tlio infuriated mother could
no longer stand quietly by nud sec the
frantic struggles and hear the pltlous
bawling of her baby, so site went for tho
disturber of her peace, with
her head between her fore-legs, her
tall in the air, and blue blazes issuing
from her expanded nostrils. Carter,
when he saw her coming, let go his hold
on the calf tall and made for tho high side
walk, between Fourteenth and Eigh
teenth streets, closely pursued by the
cow. Henry thought If he could only
get upon the walk tho cow would not at
tempt to follow him, but he was nils
taken. Instead of abandoning the chase,
she kept right on, mounted the sidewalk,
nud dashed nlong between tho railing,
gaining on Henry nt eyery leap, until they
were about half way between tho two
streets mentioned above, when Henry
saw , that Ids only ehnnce
of escape was to leap over
the railing, which he did, just In tlmo to
clear himself of a vlclou thrust of the
cow's horns as she passed by. As soon
ns the cow saw that her nntagouli-t was-
no longer on the course, she turned,
walked back to where Henry was stand
ing on tho ground below, and paced
back and forth with a wild look lu her
eyes, until ho went nway ; then she
walked along tho walk to the steps oppo
site the colored Baptist church, where she
descended to the ground nml lay down to
rest. Henry come to tho conclusion that
ho had had enough calf-catching for ono
day. and went home, thanking tho Lord
that ho had got out of this perilous posi
tion ns easily 03 ho did.

On Tuesday, at the hour of midnight,
wlllo we were pondering upon the
llnaucc ipietlon, mid endeavoring to ma
ture a plan by which we might pay our
own and the public debt, mid just when
we had begun to eon-lder In what posl-
bln way the Cairo and Vlnccinies and
Xarroiv Gauge roads had become mixed
up hi tlits problem and had made It ditll-
cult of rolutlon, a voice through a tin
horn informed us that a form had bejjn
At Christmas time, mime iu is tooth
some, but printer's pi Is particularly vn-
palatable In the holiday season. There
fore wo rose quickly, and swore a little.
We gazed upon It. The local page had
become a pyramid of type, and was .stand
ing on Its solid base upon the floor of
the press room. Around It stood
the pressman, the devil, tho foreman and
tho fireman. They looked sad, nnd
when we appeared gazed upon us with
curious eyes. Wo knew that a season of
swear was expected of us. We knew
that the devil cxpeetcdMhat wn would
raNc the place hi which the. Old Boy
lives. But we didn't. Wu were us calm
as a. May morning. Wo Inquired how tho
accident had happened. Tho pressman
(mid the devil and the llreman
sworo to It) declared that ho
was standing holding tho frame In which
tho typo Is wedged, with both his hand,
one end of tho frame resting on the tloor.
Suddenly ho noticed the typo all move out
of the fr.inio aud fall on the lloor. He
didn't knock tho typo out, and no ono
eUo was near the form. Ho
Is of tho opinion that a supernatural
power knocked the type out of the frame.
He can account for tho accident in no
other way. Tho devil says ho does not
know what supernatural means, but ho
believes n spirit did It. Ho
saw a boot go through tho form,
aud n spirit-foot must havo been In It,
But no matter, tlio form was pled, and
well, our readers must bear with us until
we get straliihteiicd up again. After a
day or two wo will withdraw In
to a corner nnd do the cursing we should
have ilimn on Tuesday night, mid then
tho accident will bo forgotten, but not
ltennis to Kent.

they preached. Tho treasurer has rc
