probably need it.
John Price has Done It.
Done what? Why forever scatter
ed, dispelled, annihilated, and, in
Missouri' parlance, forever knocked
tne socks off the superstition that
thirteen in an unlucky number. He
began the thing way back yonder
(no body knows when) by getting
himself born on the 13th of the month.
That would seem a bad beginning
ordinarily, and no one would take
such chances but. a Democrat. How
ever, that is what-he done, and he has
been getting along first rate all these
years, everything considered. He
has never been in jail, never got run
over by an automobile, in fart has
done first rate. The only thing that
is marked against him, that a good
many of us can't get over, is, he has
always in season and out of season,
regulaily and consistently voted the
Democratic ticket. A good many
think that being born on the l.'jih
may have had something lo do with
that, as that does really seem to be
about as bad a thing as a person
could be uuiltv of. However for the
sake of his family, most ol us trieil to
overlook '' 1 for"et it. Not
sai.-mcu wun what he has already tiesday moining the old gal was bac k
done on the 13ih. Wednesday of this in the job, and we hope she will stay
week, he hit that unlucky number ' '"til Christmas, or longer,
again, by giving a big blow out on his j Mr M.-Kinley, iii.inagei olthe
birthday, and inviting thirteen guests. ! R()yi theatre, left Wednesday lor

was touted. There were
reasones why no one would go, for
such a table! Talk about things lo 1
eat. If the Price family don't go
busted, it show plainly that the change,
of administration i's not going to ef I
lect business, and that this country
will just stand anything. Ihe good
things that Mrs. Price and other
I. ulies ol the Household, got on mat
tabl" will long lie reiiiemlieied b the
f.irtiinate LMiests. such as Dr. P. G.
Woods, General Ivey, Judge D. A.

family who live',.m this part ol the
country were all present. Alvin Price
and family, Mrs. Geo. Robinson from
Tipton, with the whole firm of Price
Lut. and Price and their families.
It was sure something of a crowd.
ICverybody had a fine time, and lelt
with many good wishes and willing
ness to give the 13th another whirl
as soon as it comes this way again,
A farewell Party.

We are sorry to learn ol two appli
cations made for saloons in Versailles.
WHAT IS A SALOON?
From a man in the penitentiary,
who was sentenced there for a crime
which he committed while drunk:
A bar to heaven, it door to hell,
Who ever named it, named it well.
A bar to manliness and wealth,
A door to want and broken health.
A bar to honor, pride mid fume,
a little cheaper
A dour to sin, jrief ami shame,
A liar lolnipe, a liar lo ptayei,
A ilonr lo d.iikiu-ss ami desji i r,
liai to an homncil ami useful life,
A ilooi lo a lirawliim senseless stnfe,
A liar lo all things line ami hravt
A door to every di luikanl's jjriue;
A liar lo joy that 1um i'lijiitls,
A ilnor to tears a nil breaking hearts;
A liai to he.neli, a ilunr to hell,
Whoever named it, mimed it well.
