* THE BLEASE BANQUET. *
* Abheville Press and Banner. *
* ** ** * * * * * * * * *
Notable among the recent functions
was the Blease banquet. The banquet
was held in South Carolina, no one
was invited to the feast except news
The toast master of the occasion
was the Newberry Herald and News.
The table was ladened with all the po
litical delieacies common to such an
occasion. The Newberry Herald and
News occupied the head of the table
and dispensed meats. At the opposite
end of the table the venerable Laur
ensville Herald took up position near
the "silly bub" tank and' coffee pot.
When the guests had gathered for
the feast of the Newberry Herald and
News up-spoke enquiring of the hon
ored guest, the News and Courier, what
he would have? Whereat the News
and Courier spoke for a generous slice
of well done crow!
"And what will the'Daily Mail take ?"
asked the toast-master. "Give me a
small slice," said the Mail. "Of what,"
asked the toast-master. "Oh, make it
crow," answered the Mail.
"What will the next brother, the
Laurensville Herald take?" came from
the head of the table. "Turkey for mine
with oyster dressing, cut out all
"consommes" and light truck, add a
stoup of "silly-bub" with a ten penny
in it, and a cup of black coffee."
"Greenville News, what will you
have?" "Just plain crow please, not too
much; my appetite is rather "frac
tious." My medico tells me that dark
meat is most agreeable to my health
"What shall I serve to the Charles-)
ton Post," asked the host and toast
master. "Shall I make it turkey?"
"Please to slice me a piece of breast
of crow," was the reply, "turkey is
too rich for my blood just now, I need
something sedative and cooling for my
'constitution, I've been rather feverish
for a spell."
The good old Spartanburg Journal
and Herald with dignity unfolding
their napkins spoke out simultaneous
ly for crow! "Give us crow," they said,
"since it is all the go we want crow!
make it plain crow with no knick
knacks, we do not often indulge, but
since the company calls for crow our
appetites lean that way too."
The toastmaster and host began to
"What will our good old friend, the
Record, take," he next asked.- The
Record smiled and said, "I'll take a
teenchy weenty piece of crow with a
little turkey gravy please," and some
one said that the Record actually
smacked his lips, which was of course
The State sat next. "To what shall I
serve you?" asked the host. "Oh, quit

ces." "What part of the fowl w&uld you
like?" asked the host. "I'll take the
gizzard and the parson's nose, please."
And the host hesitated. "What is the
parson's nose," he enquired. It was
explained to the host that it was .that
part of the fowl which got over the
fence last, and the State was properly
Tlle host arose with a serious gra
vity and remarked that the supply of
crow was about exhausted, and asked
if none would take turkey, but all the
board began to be clamorous for crow.
* "Is it possible," asked the host, "that
all this big juicy turkey is to be left to
me? Are there no others to divide
with? This is a most unusual gathering
of banqueters that so few will eat tur
key and so many are clamorous for

The Woman Problem.
(Richard Linthicum in the. New York
She belonged to many culture clubs,
Both ethical and physical;
In analyzing Browning's stuff
Her point of view was quizzical;
In discussing moral topics
She was always most impressive;
In reforming and 'uplifting
She was all to the progressive.
Her set was most exclusive
In the very best society.
And her mental convolutions
Were of infinite variety;
She was strong ro woman's suffrage
As a means of civic purity,
And her labors were unceasing
For the good of all futurity.
But despite of all her ethics
And despite her proud position,
Mr. Loeb and his inspectors
Put her through an inquisition;
And they took her up for smuggling
Shameful! Horrid! Persecution!
woman, you are still the greatest
Problem for solution.
