Col. Brown was wanting another horse.
, For some reason he couid not leave bis

tb rough lite command for some oue whose
1 judgment he could trust, lo go and buy one
'for him. C, of eompauy "('.," having a
good borso record, was the lucky one. Well,
after being duly and truly prepared with
the licessary pa-es, he started for eiinsgow,

of tho fluftst horses 111 the world, and thai
they would be at the Fair, aud ti was such a
Kood place to make lhe purchase. Col. B.
1 started him oil again. Well, C, stretched
a two week's furlough out of that, and 11
' tinned again horseless, Willi a long lace
and sad counleuauee he told ol 11, 11 and
I that.ee , how lliey could go, etc.; "but ( olo
