"My Ownost Own: My love for you
is stronger than the smell of garlic,
boarding house butter or the kick of
a youthful mule. Sensations of exquis
ite joy go through me like a bull
through a brush fence and caper over
my heart like flies onaderelictsausage
I feel like I were rooting on a rainbow
or sliding dow the ridge pole of a the
aurora borealis. I could lay hold of my
boot straps and lift myself over the
moon. As the bull pup yearneth for
raw beef, so do I yearn after your
prosence and as the baby goose swim
metb in a mud-puddle so do I swim in a
sea of double-distilled delightfullness
when you are near me. My heart flips
and flops around like a churn-dasher
and the tender passion holdeth my soul
in pawn. If my love is not recipro
cated, I will pine away and dio like a
llea-powdered bed bug and you can come
and catch cold at my gave."— Lind
Ellensburg is all Right.
The prospect that the railroad divis
ion will shortly be moved to CleElum
seems to have put new life into the peo
ple of Ellensburg and Kittitas valley.
Instead of laying back expecting the
railroad division to make the town, the
prospect of its removal has awakened a
spirit of activity not known there for
years. The ditch must be built, is now
the uppermost thought in the minds of
our neighbors and they will surely
make it go, for they are made of the
right kind of stuff once get them going.
The removal of the division will not
hurt Ellensburg in the least, on the
other hand in a few years the town will
be better off for its going for other in
dustries will be set in motion that per
haps would be a long while in coming
if something had not waked them up
The ditch will be built and Ellens
burg will be one of the busiest and
most prosperous cities in the state. —
