Editorial Patencc Strained.
The Esk ridge Tribune-Star is
just naturally tired of boosting with
out even a word of thanks. It puts
it this way. "Editors are born
boosters. The other day the editor
was solicited to join a lodge and was
handed a petition printed by a supply
house ; from a merchant he got a dun
in a government stamped envelope
and written on a Karclinu oil state
ment: he made a purchase at
a store and got a duplicate bill print
eo in Denver. Ye gods how can an
editor be expected to join lodges and
pay bills on such treatment as that,
and all the time tell the people to
trade at home? Ever think of it?
Editors have to be born boosters,
prepared to live on dried herring
and stand for anything."

Apples, Apple Dumplings,
Apple Pie And Apple
A lady from the country was in the
city last week selling the finest(?)of
apples at 50 cents per bushel. That
looked good to some folks who had
been going hungry all winter, and
she did aland office business. When
the old man brought the fruit in the
following day, the old lady collected
in advance, the purchasers found they
were sold, and the next job was to
find somebody to give 'em to, as no
decent pig would condescend to
touch 'em. Among the victims we
can name only Elwyn Price, Daugh
erty, Harrison, Crcwson and Nelson.
You have all read ab ut the pig in
the poke, and the fool and his money.
Oh, say, Sal, quit yer foolin'.
Later Elwyn Price fed some of
his purchase to his chickens and the
next day got 14 eggs from 17 chick
ens, and he thinks the three chickens
that failed to lay refused to eat 'em,
else he would have had 17 eggs.
Now we suppose Crewson, Nelson,
Daugherty and Harrison will be go
