" Mother, May I Go Out lo Swim ? "
Quito nu interesting sceno took
place In thu creek just ubovu Kunkle's
mill last week which was told lo us by
tin uninterested party whose capacity
for truth and veracity is consldera'jly
ab.ivo par. It seems that three or four
of Oregon's high-toned Mielety hollos
had just heard of the old adage that
"cleanliness Is the next thing to godli
ness," e .included they would try thu ex
periment by taking an open air bath, n
swim and have a good jolly time all to
themselves as the "boys" do. This
would have been nil light and proper
too, hud they not divulged their secret
to two neighbor girls who reside in
that vicinity, and who bent upon having
a little luu, thought ItVoiild bu a good
joke lo dress theni-ielvos up In men's
clothes and give the iady bntliors a good
scare; and It is useless to add that they
were highly succussl'ul. Having attired
themselves In male, garments iind two
old slouch hats they proceeded to creep
up the bank where the female swim
mers wero having a huge old time, div
ing and splashing around in the water
They crawled up within about twenty ;
yards ot the place and listened to the
many remarks that rent the still, noon
day tiir, mid numerous remarks like the
following greeted tlio iMenor'.s cars:
"Xow just watch me dive," "Can you
swim on your back F" "Why of courso
I can." "t)h get away and let me
show you how long 1 can May under."
When till at once, the girls who lay in
the brush thinking forbearance ceased
to bo a virtue, raised up and made a
rush to the spot, at the same time gave
a wiioop that woiihl have done credit to
a Coiniuaiiche wairior. Then there was
a K-cuu that bullies nil ile-crlption, and
one which our pen lads to pictuiu. A
jump; a scream; tt yell of agonizing j
surprise which foretold revenge in its
very utterance; a few white streaks I
llitled with lightning rapidity through j
the thin open air, and then all was si
lent, save the rippling of tho waters .
which were rc-iiiuing their natural
course again. The female bathers had
