A Letter from Sile.
Dbab Citizen:-I'm tickled mostj
to death over Jim Perkins. He's,
come around all right, he has, an' I'm I
most sorry I called him atingy when '
1 1 wrote ye 'Iwtit bira last week.
"Sile," says he to mo yesterdyt

I've promised $40 to the lxy un' S50
to the gal, 'cause she can't get a
'chance to earn fo much herself.
Forty an' sixty is u hundred, now,
ain't it? It kinder hurts me, Sile,"
says he, "to give that hundred dollars
' for nothiu' but a little schoolin', an'
me dqL a seein' much use in it, as I
told ye last week. But I reckon
you're right, Sile. Leastways there
ain't uo harm in makin' the expeeri
ment. An' if they don't get stuck up
the first year, so's they can't work
about their old pappy'a farm next
' summer, I don't care if they do catch
j a little book-learnin' an' fine manners."
"Good for you, Jim!" says I, but
Ed Holloway up nn' says, (Ed was a

I says he, "schoolin' an' cypherin is all

all right, but 1 woulun t send my

, "Why notT" says Jim."
" 'Cause they've got some niggers
down there what sit in tho stmo
school room with the white folks, an
say their lessons to the same teachers.
An' Jim, he didn't know hardly
what to say, bein' a little weak in the
faith himself. But I couldn't keep
still no way.
