What Kissing Is.
Mr. Editor, do you know what
hissing is? Kissing is a noun, it's a
a name; proper noun, because its
the proper thing to do wheir they are
-ready and the heart is willing; plural
number, because it takes two to per
form it; common gender, because its
generally performed by one of each
sex; possessive case. because it pos
sesses a delirious infatuation for the
human race and agrees with the par
ties performing the act. Kissing is
closely 'connected with "bus," which
is a good old backwoods expression,
meaning a kiss that is highly enjoyed
by two greenhorns who have power
ful lungs to perform the act with. In
this case-buss means one kiss, rebus
means kiss again, pluribus means a
inumber of kisses, horribus means to
be caught kissing by the old folks,
"merribus means to steal a kiss, syli
sbus means to kiss the hands instead
of the lips, -blunderbus means to kiss
an old maid by mistake, and omnibus
means kiss all present including

when properly carried out, but noth

ty girl and miss the mark.
Do not try young men, until you
practice on your sister a week or two.
No man ever succeeded in his first
effort; it is impossible. She may be
willing, but cannot do the act with
All classes of females should be

Stray Thoughts on Women
Matrimony is. like patriotism and
religion, a most noble motive and a
most infamous pretext.
To analyze love too closely is to cure
one'- self of it. Psyche lost it by
wishing to know what it was.
A lovers' quarrel between a man
and a woman, both clever and re
f ned, is a thing of artistic beauty.
Romantic women rather like a
plaintive lover. Sensible women,
however, much prefer it lively one.
To promise to love out of grati
tude or duty is signing a promissory
note with the certainty of dishonor
ing the signature.
In his dealings with women, a
man should always be respectful; but
if be wants to please themn,he trust not

few days yet. We learn, however,
that in the course of a month or so,
that drilling will be resumed on the
Anse-la-Butte Company's land by
three other drillers, making in all,
four wells going down at the same
time. The officers of the Company
are certain they have a clogged gush
er. and the under pressure is so great
that it keeps the pipe at the bottom
clogged with sand and gravels. The
I other drillers of experience who have
studied the conditions at the lButte
did not hesitate to contract to bore
wells there, as they are all sure the
gushers are there, and they are going
to get them. It is hard work, and
requires lot of tedious labor, but the
drillers who will go there in a short
time are going to work until the holes
will gush.-l.-Veekly Messenger.
