A FUNNY MAN IS OUT OF PLACE.

periment.. tCopyriirht, 1863, by Charles B. Lewis.
Our Fuxsy Man. Last week a young
man came i Jong here who claimed to have
been the Many man on a Colorado paper
for two or t hree years, but had lost his Job
on account of the suspension of the paper
He was willing to work cheap in order to
get a new (tart, and we took him on trial
for a week at 6. As we had always under
stood that a funny man couldn't be held
down like other newspaper folks, we told
this chap t o slash around on his own hook
and pick up his fun wherever he could find
it. As he lidn't look like a tenderfoot, we
didn't thir. k it necessary to post him on the
eccentricities of any of our leading cit
izens. Old Bill Jackson, who operates the
ferry acroci the Little Colorado river, is in
variably p eked up by strangers asa comical
cuss. His mouth always wears a grin, and
there is a bland and jokeful look "from the
end of his nose to the roots of his hair.
These things are deceptive, however. Ten
years ago Old Bill brought his wife out
here from Illinois at an expense of $60, and
she ran off with a half breed inside of a
week. Ilj'sbeen mad ever since, and we
who know him best would as soon think of
tickling a grizzly under the fore leg as to
joke with the ferryman.
Our funny man had got 6ight of old
Bill and estimated that he would pan out
about a thousand jokes. He went down
to see him and found him asleep on the
bank of '.he river. The funny man awoke
him by tickling him with a straw and
whispering "Rats!" in his ears. The can
tankerous old critter got up and seized
our risinj; young humorist and flung him
up and ltung him down and pitched him
around and walked on him till he couldn't
have bee a worse off if a herd of a thousand
mules hr d passed over him. When we got
possession of the bodv, it was supposed to

The E icker has no use for a funny man.
There are lots of funny things happening
around here, and most of our people enjoy
a joke, but at the same time we are ntt in
our ways. We shall now and then v: ;
and publish something funny, but fortl.: e
or four days after the paper cotii-.-s out e

can bt grabbed at a second's notice. The

Oxi: ON Vs. We had a telephone mes
sage f rom Clinch Valley last Tuesday to the
effect that the people of that town were go
ing to hold a public meeting on the subject
of ad:nitting Arizona to statehood, and that
we w jre wanted as one of the speakers.
We t lerefore gayly saddled our cayuse, put
our s peech in our pocket and started out.
Just as we were ready to go, the city clerk
sent over to borrow our office dictionary to
see h rw the word "eventuate" was spelled,
and id fooling around we forgot to strap
on ot J guns. We were two miles out of
town when we missed them, and then con
clude to trust to the speed of our mule in
stead of going back. It turned out to be a
very foolish conclusion on our part.
Wis reached the crossing of Spike creek
without incident, but while ascending the
bank on the north side a critter stepped out
from behind a bush, leveled two guns at
us i.nd ordered us to get down. We
held our arms above our head while he
turned our pockets wrong side out. We
had almost a dollar in cash, but the avari
cious critter was disappointed and indig
nant and made some awful threats. We
tried to put in a H' watch to him at (30, but
he wouldn't have it. He was about to let
us off, when he came across that speech.
He was one of the few men in this territory
whr are opposed to admission, and of
coui-se he wanted to make it as hot as pos
sible for us. While he sat on a rock with a
gun in either hand and one of our best
cigcrs in his mouth, we were compelled to
deliver the speech. He frequently inter
rup'ed us to call us a liar and a scoundrel,
but never to applaud.
Tae speech is timed for 20 minutes, and
the unfeeling scoundrel insisted on our re
pea Ding it three times over. While he
thought he knew us as editor of THE KlCK
EB he wasn't quite sure, and it is needless
to fay we lied about it and claimed to run a
poker room. We returned home instead
of going to Clinch Valley. We have got
our affairs in shape to leave the office for
f ot r or five days, and tomorrow we start
out If that wretched apology for a high

NOT MR. DONKERS.
Ha Thought He Knew Him, but He Was
In the seat in front of me was a short,
redheaded man, and in the one across the
aisle was a large, portly man. I shouldn't
have paid any attention to either but for
the actions of the redheaded man, who
kept his gaze on the other one and seemed
to be greatly tickled about something. He
finally rose up and stepped across to the
portly man and said:
"Mebbe I'm mistaken, but I think not.
Didn't you used to sell fannin mills in
"No, sir," briefly replied the other.
"Hain't your name Samuel Donkersf "
"Didn't used to drive a span of gray
horses to a red wagon and play on the fid
Ilef" "Look here, sir, but what are you trying
to get at?" demanded the big man as he
laid aside his book.
'"I thort I knowed you."
"But you are mistaken about it. I don't
remember that I ever saw your face'be
fore." "Say, you are either Sam Donkers or his
twin brother!" chuckled the redheaded
"I am neither one, sir!"
"Don't seem as if my eyes could deceive
me same eyes, mouth, nose and gold fillin
in your teeth. I'd swear you was Sam Don
kers." " Who're you, sir, and what is your ob
ject in annoying me?" shouted the portly
man as he stood up and looked very fierce.
"SAM DOXREKS BE HAKGED!"
"My name is Carter. I spell it with a C.
I live in Darby county, this state. My ob
ject is to see if you are Sam Donkers."
"Sam Donkers be hanged! I never heard
of him in all my life, and I haven't been in
Darby county in a dozen years!"
"Didn't you sell fannin mills?"
"Didn't you use to stop at my house?" ,
"Not by a long shot."
"And you didn't run away with my wife
Eliza the 19th of July a year ago?;'
"You blamed fool!" shouted this big man
as he seized him and slammed him around,
"but what sort of a game are yoti trying to
work on me?" '
"Fire! Police! Lemme go!" yelled the
"Explain yourself before I throw you out
of the window."
"Waal, a fannin mill peddler named Sam
Donkers run off with my wife, and I thort
you was the man. I guess I'm mistaken."
"I know you are. Now, sir, you sit down
and behave yourself, or I will not be re
sponsible for results."
The redheaded man sat dpwn and pinned
dp the rips in his coat and smoothed down
his hair and got his breath back. Then he
turned to mc with:
"Do you know him?"
"If it wasn't right here, I'd lick himl The
idea of his being so mighty techy about
things! When a man's wife runs away,
hain't he got a perfect right to ask about
her? Has an ole rhinosceros like him any
right to choke me off? Even If he was Sam
Donkers, and I'll be gaul darned if I don't
believe he is, all I was going to do was to
ask if Eliza was well and wanted the pair

See Wanted to Know.
She boarded the train at a flag station
and took the seat ahead of me, and when
the conductor came for her ticket she mild
"Conductor, doea this train ever run off
"Hardly ever, ma'am," he replied as he
winked at me.
"But it does sometimes?"
"You don't know whether it will run off
today or not?"
"No, ma'am. If we strike a cow, it prob
"About where might you strike a cow, if
you strike one today?" she persisted.
"Well, pretty soon after we pass Black
River, ma'am," replied the official as he
went away with a broad grin on his face
Black Kiver was 20 miles down the road.
The woman sat very prim and erect until
we reached the town and left it. Then she
turned to me with:
"Excuse me, but that was Black River,
"And if we strike a cow it will be pretty
soon, won't it?"
"That's what the conductor said."
"Yes, and he ought to know. There's a
cow out there now, and I suppose we ought
to get ready for the accident."
She got a brace for her feet, grabbed the
railing of her seat, aud while the fat man
across the aisle and I were exchanging
winks and nods . and flattering ourselves
that we knew a thing or two there was a
bump, the front end of the coach reared up,
and next moment it lurched to the right
and went off the rails and slid down an em
bankment and brought up in a marsh.
There were 28 of us in that car, and every
single one except the woman in the Beat
ahead suffered severe bruises or broken
bones. The entire train went off, and there
were 13 killed and about SO seriously in
jured. The cause of the mishap was an old
spotted cow, which had got fast in a cattle
guard. After we had been helped out by
way of the windows, I found the woman
calmly seated on the grass, and she was
just as calmly saying to a weeping female
"I am sorry your are hurt, but you should
have asked the conductor where we were
going to strike a cow and so have been pre
pared for it." M. Quad.
"There's one thing," said the new board

lady anxiously. The new boarder paid a
high price and paid it promptly.
"The coffee," was his response. Buffalo
