Explaj atoky. The editor of The Kick
KK, who s also mayor of the town, has
left for P. iani-. this territory, presumably
to marry a widow reported to be worth
$50,000 is cold cash. This issue of the
paper is in our charge. We are not the
ajirieult ti al editor. We are the horse
alitor, al d feel ourselves entirely com
petent to mi the business. Our salary is
nine dollara per week, and la supposed to
cover all personal risks. Anybody looking
for the mayor will also be accommodated.
Come ear.y and avoid the ru-di. First
come first served.
HE CaI LED. Monday afternoon, hear
ing that ihe editor was out of town, Gen
eral Ashl urton, of Clinch Valley, called
at the office Intending to wreck, things.
He fondlj expected to liini the agricul
tural edit )r in charge and to hold a regu
lar picnic and he was considerably cm
barrisied when we stopped him with a
couprHof six shooters and asked him to re-

new his sul script ion. We don't think he
had the si ghtcst idea of subscribing to
The Kicks ; for another year, as be is not
at all literacy, but under the circum
stances he laid down two dollars and
backed out of the shop as gracefully as a
dancing m; stcr. The general is looking
particular! well this spring, and we un
derstand tl at his crops promise big re
sults. We I ball always 1k pleased to have
He Was Looking. On the same after
noon, and soon after the general's depart
lire, Ben Williams, bad man, ca.ne our
way looking fur the mayor. Be w drunk
Saturday evening, and his honor took his
gun away for fear of accident, Bad man
felt that he bad been degraded. Wanted
to wipe out the insult in blood. Wanted
to do it rigl t away. Stood before us and
shrieked ton gore. The bone editor who
is out-self r bad him licked bit two minutes
by the office dock. He had only one dol
lar in cask m Li wallet. We took that
and credited bin with six months' suln
script inn t.i the lx-st weekly paper in the
world. Had man went away dcclariug
that be loved us. Next ;
In POOH Luck. Tuesday morning we
received a te egram from the editor saying,
"Make things red hot this week." While
the horse business is our specialty, we can
slush around on most any line to the extent
at a column r two. We strapped on our
guns and took a walk to see what could be
done to gladden the heart of our chief.
When in fn ;:t of the postoffice we met
Dave Smile;. Dave ha- often declared
that he won! 1 perisb before be would sub
scribe to The Kicker. We intended to
gel the drop n him, but he was up toanufl
and got the irst shot Indeed, be did all
the shooting. When we came to draw we
found our gn ts empty, t he office boy having
drawn our cartridges and used them to or
nament a display line in an suction bill.
Dave got twi bullets through oar hat and
then bolted. We are no runner. We are
a home edrtcn with a stiff knee, and now
and then one of our victims escapes. I!' Mr.
Smih y will g ve u a fair show we'll wager

on the books or his body in the editor's
private grave rard.
Is- Perfect Obdeb. The editor of The
Kicker left n tber hurriedly Monday morn
ing, but we turned to and had everything
in perfect shape within an hour. Members
of the vigila ice committee wanting the
roiie and our ; ssistance will give the usual
signal on the alley window. The editor of
our contemporary need not feel at all put
out, but can s mot at us with the same per
fect freedom bat has been accorded him
for the last year. We have the riot act
where we can put our hand on it at a mo
ment's notice, and any one wanting a bad
man disarmed and led out of town by the
ear will give the usual four knocks on the
