A Comical i'Mltlng; Incident.
A comical incident happened to a well
known amateur Geneseo fisherman last
Friday evening. He was fishing at the
mouth of Jack's Branch. He bad few
bites, except those contributed by mosoui
toes. The waters in which he fished were
still and sullen, unstirred by even tbe wag

mud turtles stared at him with bard, un
winking eyes, till be was maddened
Just up the Bayou across tbe shallow
mouth of the branch, but bevond the
farthest reach of bis line, a whole school
of fish weltered and floundered. The
water was alive with them. He couldn't
stand it. He disrobed his fatted calves
and started to walk across. When about
three feet from shore a startled

wall paper darted between his legs.

whoop of horror and leaped with
such dynamatifr suddenness into the air
that several scores of mosquitoes were
crippled for life by his head. The fish
didn't yei:-, but he was so scared that his
own mother wouldn't know him. He
rushed frantically ahead, and when the
man came down with a souse and a roar,
tne irenzied fish gave a leap and lit on
the ozy shore. Then the ruling passion
possessed the fisherman. Hc-forgot bis

seizing him, as it happened, back of the

That association blacklisted all those

There is a boy who makes Park place

weak enough to give him a small sum of
money, and ever since haa been pestered
by the same old tale of hunger and the
necessary want of three cents to make
up the five. In a happy moment Le
thought of a good plan to rid himself of
the nuisance, and one Monday a solid
sandwich was bought for five cents and
carefully stored away. By Sunday the
bread was beautifully hard and the meat
not too fresh. It was carefully wrapped
up in paper. At Pari place the boy was
on hand with the usual pitiful tale.
"I thought of you this morning," said
tho reporter, and handed him the paper
packet; "here's a sandwich for you."
It was not what the beggar wanted,
so he only gave vent to a surly "thanks."
About an hour later the reporter had to
go down Park place again, and he saw
his tormentor on the sidewalk. The
tramp saw him also and slunk across the
street, and the look on his face was as
malignant as it could possibly be. New
