The Joy of t Editor.
The editor sat in his easy chair
And smoked his pipe of clay
And conned the troubles o'er
That had gathered from day
And watching the smouo as it
His eyelids I io slowly closed,
And he dreamed a dream w hile
all was btill,
As lie sat in his chair and
And he thought the bub.serib
ers nil came in
To pay their subscription
And he thought the paper had
& new dress,
And he had some new
And bo us he's dreaming on
Let us leaving h'un lying
For the only joy that an 'editor
Is to sleep in his easy chair.
The fanner who thinks that
autos ishould bo kept off the road
the nicest, scliish individual.

Stolen Cattle Came Back.
The cattle which were stolen
from the pasture of J. S. Bell be i
tween Nyhart and Foster some j
clays ago and which was reported j
t ) The Democrat last week have
returned and seemingly of their I
own accord- One pecular cir-,
cumstance, however, is that a j
bell upon one of them was care-i
fuly mu filed with an old glove
There is no doubt that the cattle
weic stolen and were in hiding
not many miles distant from the
pasture from which they were
taken. The thieves were either
unable to run them out with the
watch which Kheriif liullock liad
caused to be made of that section
or became frightened and turned
them loose. It is not likely that
efforts to hcato this liotne talent
which seems to be cngaced in
the cattle stealing business will
cease because of the return of
the stock Hutler Democrat.

Two men arrived at the N'ev.oi t
asylum one day recently who
puzzled the folks in charge very
sorely, says the Lamar Demo
crat. One of the pair talked in
coherently and rather thickly
about various foolish things,
while the other maintained a
quiet reserve that indicated no
desire to be interviewed- The
man in the office looked thein
over doubtfully for perhaps a
minute, finally he gave it up.
"Well," he tinally he asked,
"Which one is it that is crazy?
Certainly they wouldn't send two
crazy fellows up here to
Then the quiet self contained
mtn spoke. "I'm the one that's
crazy," he said. This man here
is the sheriff of our county and
he started to bring me up to the
asylum, but he got beastly drunk
and I was afraid to let him keep
his revolver, so r look it. He
kept on getting drunker, so I
took his handcuffs away from
hira, and I thought if lie got loo
bad I'd handcuff hiui. He's got
the papers, showing I'm crazy,
there in his pocket.
