Jock Robinson is not without a
vein of true humor. When aolicitited
to tell ye scribe a yarn he replied,
"Can't do it. I have quit telling
them," and as he spoke there passed
through his countenance an unmistakable
tremor indicating unexpressed
amusement. Sherman Clark sat
not five feet away on an empty cracker
bnx with his left foot on the floor
and his hands clasped in front oi his
right knee rocking back and forth,
which movement together with the
curve of his buck, gave a realistic
impression of a rolling wagon "vhecl.

THE Record has run short of poetry.
Notice is hereby given to Bobby Sprite,
Sally Alley, Rustic, Nemo, 0. G. W.
and Oh Gee Whilliklns that we are out
of poetry and need some very bad.
Take "Snow, snow, beautiful snow"
for a subject and tho Record will give
a prize to the first poet who gives us
a few lines of good old fashioned home
spun poetry. This offer is open to all
comers, light weight and heavy weight
and also any red ham and gravy poet
who desires to compete.
Friend George: One cold day,
just after the last snow storm, ono of
my neighbors was complaining because
he had to go out the night before
in the storm to get some milk,
and some one asked him why he did
not send his son Jim. "Oh, there's
fifty reasons why I didn't send him.'
On being told tint he couldn't give
one reason, much less, he answered,
"Well, to Logan with, he wouldn't
go.' Under the circumstances, you
yoursolf, undividually, oollcctively,
politically or religiously, or otherwise,

The "Lad"' was a good follow and
wasn't ho for the candidate?
Of oourse he was, therefore, when
the Lad said "Mr. Candidate you
owe me $2.00 or $4.00 for wood, '
there never was a word returned but
a prompt shoving of the right hand
into the trousers pocket and the coin
of the realm was easily transferred.
During this campaign the candidate
made a speech, and among other
short, sharp, incisive sentences was
a concluding one something like
'And now, ladies and gentlemen,
llow me to say in conclusion, that
if I have made any mistakes in the
past they are errors of the head and
not of the heart. I thank you."
Unfortunately the Lad heard this
speech. He treasured up the concluding
remark for future reference.
By and by the election was held.
The candidate vas re-elected by a
Having more time to see alter details
Mr. Candidate visited his wood
pile and observed some things minutely.
It was not long until the Lad presented
him with a bill for $1.00 for
wood. The candidate feeling a certain
sort ot freedom he had not felt
in months, said.
'See here, Sherman, how can I
owe you $4.00 for wood. I paid you
$5.00 for wood not over three weeks
ago, and besides that last wood you
brought was green and tho stioks too
Sliorman removed his left hand
from the table and placed it on his
hip and leaned with his right hand
on the table and said. "Mr. Candidate,

this wood busineHs, they have been

As the four plunks rattled in
Sherman's hand ho made a short bow
and with a sort of pigeon wing sidestep
toward the door, said:
"I thank you."

not long ago ho sat at meat at the
table of Quint Coayer'd. Casting

majestically swept toward the door.
"Mr. Minnehan' ohirruped the
star boarder, "you must feel mighty

The undulating motion ceased and
Mr. Minnchan replied, "No, I don't,
I am an extremist. I get hotter than
anybody in summer and colder than
anybody in winter. I buy the heaviest
underclothes and the lightest
sold, and am always too hot or too
cold. I am an unfortunate.
