oue; but wben ho crosses over into
the agricultural domain he is clearly
guilty of trespass. His recent article
on "farming" recalls an anecdote re
lated of one Schenoaky, a Polo, and i
"'poot and shoomaker" of'no incas
reputation. A more sober, quiet, and
punctilious follow to -business wati
rarely over seen. Early and late,
week in and week out, Schonoeky
was to be found at his bench--peg
ging away. Peoplo began to wonder
ask him, aind admire aliko his profes.
aional skill and patient industry.
But at longth the drudgery of routine
work became monotonous with him,
and he decided one fine morning to
lock up shop and go out and recreato.
Filling himself full of whiskey, he
birod a first class "rig" at the livery
stables, and started out. One vicious
slash with the whip did the "busi.

Schenosky out, and tore the buggy
literally to pieces. When picked up

way of apology: "Clintlemens, I ish
