Mr. I. M. Bruco tells us that about 23
years ago n young man named Bud

such a reputation as a driver. Tho description
answers to somo extent to the
well-known Bud Doble and we would
not be greatly surprised if he is not the
The good, dyed-in-the-wool democrats
of Rowland aie rather worried over
Judge T. L. Shelton's actions in the
matter. They claim that he has
found a more lucrative business and for
that reason has turned tho
and fixtures over to that clever gentleman,
but uncompromising republican,
Mr. Frank Cordier. Of course the judge
will still be postmaster in name, but it
does look as if ho could have found,
without much trouble, a democrat who
would have been glad to havo had tho
opportunity of beiug mado deputy postmaster
and for it received tho greater
portion of the emoluments of tho oflice
as they claim Mr. Cordier does.
A couple of boya, ono from the country
and the other a town urchin, played
"hookey" other day, and whilo
their fellow pupils wero pouring over
their books, these two youths strolled
out to Mr. Jonathan Owsley's and stole,
"just for fun," his fine bird dog. Mrs.
Owsley saw the boys take the dog away
and when her husband camo in from tho
fields she informed him of it. Mr. Owsley
is very fond of his dog and he imme
diately began search for him, as well as
the boys who stole him. Ho did not
find his pet, however and he sent word
to Marshal Newlaudto keep a look out
for him. John was not long in finding
both the boys and dog and cabbaged tho
whole crow. Tho boys were almost
frightened to death at tho thought of
being in the ollicer'a custody and plead
with Mr. Nowland to release them. He,
after much pursuasiou, let them go on
the promiso that they wonld give him
Sound pay for the dog's delivery to
Mr. Owsley. This was readily agreed to
and the bovs sought their friends and
borrowed the necessary amount. It was
a good lesson for them and believing
they havo paid enough for their fun we
will not humiliate them farther by
printing their names.
