myself a long distance lroni town

After leading my horse to a

What "We" Signifies.
Anexchange explains it thin way:
Somebody who wants us t<> explain !
what is the editorial "wo" signifies,!
says its meaning varies to suit the
occasion. For instance when you
rend that "wo" ox poet our wife
lionio today, we refers to tho oditor
in elioif; when it's "wo" nre a little
late with our work it includes the j,
entire ofliee force, oven tho dovil
and tho towel. IT "we" are having
a boom, the town is meant; 'we1
received over 700,000 emigrants
last year, it embraces th? nation.
but 'we' hnvo got hog cholera in
our midst, only refers to tlio illness
of tho man who taken tlio paper
two or three years without
paying for it.?Ex
Yes, it is true, and wo hnvo a
devil of of a lot of hog cholera in
Pickens county, too.
