Tlie Owl as a Poet
Since the arrival of the pig by express
last year, sent by a wicked man at
Watortown, no package has created the
consternation at this office that a box
containing an Owl did, which, arrived
Wednesday from Oak Center. The
name of the donor was not given, but
the name " Old Parker " is on the box,
and that is probably the name of the
owl. He is a lively bird, and would
make a good "bird poet," such as we
wrote of a short time since. Who knows
but this is a girl poet who has been
taken at her word, and turned into a bird.
If this is the girl poet who wrote, "I
would I were a bird," she has got herself
into the worst scrape of her life.
The eyes look more like a girl than anything,
and when the owl winks with one
eye, and looks at us as though she
meant to be so understood presuming
that it is a she it makes us tremble,
and forget business, and wink back. If
this is a girl poet turned into an owl, we
wonder whether it is the girl's or the
owl's appetite that enables the insect to
eat three pounds of beef. If it is the
girl's appetite that has been sawed off on
to an owl, it would be a mean trick on
the owl, if he had to get his own living.
When the bird winks, and makes its
mouth go, we think it is a girl poet transformed,
and retaining many of the girl's
best qualities. To see whether there
was any girl left in the owl, we put a
mouse in the box with the bird, expecting
if the girl symptoms predominated
the owl would take its feathers in both
claws, and climb up on something to
get away, and scream. But there is
more owl in the bird than girl poet, because
the bird snatched the mouse in its
claw, and with its bill tore the little animal
into fragments and eat him. So, if
there is any girl left in the composition
of that owl, the girl poet has got her
stomach full of nasty mouse. We warned
the girl poet not to become a bird, and
if she has not taken our advice she knows
by this time how it is herself. But what
a wink the owl has got. That wink on
a girl would break up a prayer meeting.
A girl with such a wink as that could go
to church and not a man in the congregation
could ever tell where the text was.
And what a wise look the bird has got.
It sits and seems to be thinking of the
hereafter, or maybe it is wondering
where the next meal is coming from. It
is possible that some friend, knowing we
wanted an associate editor, has sent the
owl to take a position on bursta Maybe
some dear-friend Has been transformed
into an owl, and caused themselves to be
shipped to us, to get into the sanctum
and see what is, going on. Ifj ihfi. eyes
were another oolor, and they should
wink that way, we should be sure a joke
was being played on us. Any person
that wants to hire a good owl to eat meat
on shares, can apply at this office.

A. Druggist's Mistake.
Two friend named Ferris and Parker,
of Denver, feeling somewhat oppressed
by the heat one day last week,
went into a dru store and asked the
immaculate clerk for two small doses of
buchu. Having swallowed the same
they started for home. They had not
prooeeded far when Ferris began to
twit Parker upon the extraordinary and
unbec niing hue which his face had assumed,
under the influence of the heat.
"You haven't much to boast of,"
Parker: "youra is about a3 red
as a. fellow's face cjuld get without
breaking out.'1 The two friends theu
halted, and exchanged more elaborate
criticisms the appearance of
each other's countenances, as a result
of which they- concluded to make the
quickest trip to 1 he drug-store ou record.
There the obliging clerk forthwith
discovered that he had given
them belladonna instead of bujchu. A
phy?icun happened to beinlhe shop at
tk&tircH, and by hjs assistance a couple
"of valuable lives were saved. . The
clerk WAS CO'vd p.nomrh t an.v t.h. ho
was much plea-ed a,t their reppyry.,
