ZEKE A KNOCKER.
Knocks the Knocker---No Us(
Knocks Preacher and Layman Alike.
Less Knocking and More Pulling
Together Better For all Mankind.
Webster's dtfimition of a pessi
mist is "one who Looke at thiings
for the worst,'' but if the ( Id ma,
was to define the word at the pres
ent time ho would simply dub it
pessimist as a knocker, But why
be a pessimist? WUhy not look on
the bright mide of things and be an
optimist?-one of those fellon~s
who can) tackle a plate of boarding
house hash without suspicion.
An optimist is the fellow who geLs
tho most fun out of. life, if nothing
more. Selfishness, envy and jeal,
ousy have set all the world knock
ing. The office-seekers are knock
ing the office-holders, and in their
- greed are liable to upset the pie
counter-fbr the wise politician
sitteth on the fence and watcheth
the cat tracks, but just the same
they are all knocking at the pan
try door. The religious denomni
nations are knocking each other,
and with over fifteen hundred dif
ferent sects in the world a fellow
don't know where he "is at."
They have got me so mixed up I
have to admit I don't know any
thing about it, and am fast coming
to the conclusion that they don't
know any more about it than I d3.
Some time ago a young lady
said t6 me, "Uncle Zeke, I am
sorry you can't go to heaven."
"Why, Miss Maggie," I rieplied,
"why can't I go to heaven?" "Be.
cause you aie not a Catholic," she
answered. Well, I didn't think
much about that, but when I
heard a regular old bard shell say
that "no one but a Baptist could
enter heaven,' I went to thinking.
JI could not be both, and for that
matter I was neither one, and
therefore they had me in a fix.
sorter "betwixt the devil and the
deep blue sea."
A great many of the preachers
have laid aside the Bible and gone
to knocking, just sandwichiwg in
eniough of the Soripture to hold
their jobs, and they catch on pretty
well with sorne people. A preach
er out west got his pi)cture in the
p ipers, a lot of free advertising
andI letters of co'mmendation from
numerousl fool cranks bieause ho
gave Rockefeller a knocking, de
nouncing him as a thief and a
scoundrel; and it is ten-penny
nails against tacks that it wvould
be as easy to prove that pireacheri a
blat ant hy pocrite as to prove 'John
D a thief. It is a fad nowadays to
knock the rich, and Rackefeller
seems to be the king pin. If a
week passes without his giving
awvay a million or t-wo he is a
''thieving old miser,'' but when he
goes down in his jeans for a few
millions they say he does it t
ease his conscience. Sto it is a
case of '-cusmsed if you do, and
cussed if you don't." If he is ais
m -an a scoundrol as he is pictured
1 can't see why he is not in the
pen. Ho must be a pretty slick
thief and backed up by a pretty
shrewd gang to rob the whole
world, or else the human family
are a lot of rank. suckers. IHow
ever it servos him right, for he had
no business to get rich ; ha ought
to have stayed p)oor and give us
knockers a chanace. Just the same,

The opportunity of
The Secret of our Success
is that we are daily watching for bargains that .ve
can give the people at prices that they appreciate.
Now we have it fbr you.
Down in a Southern city we bought a complete
and up-to-date stock of bankrupt goods at about one
half the manufacturers cost and we have decided that
our customers shall have the benefit of this purchase,
and they go on sale at about one-half their actual
value. This is no old out of date stuff, but brand new
goods, bought for the spring trade for a city of about
50,000 inhabitants, and the style and quality of these
goods is perfect. The goods are now on sale
and will last until they are all sold. We
haven't space to quote many prices but only give you
an idea of the great values of this sale. Get ready
and take advantage of this sale, I or they won't last long.
Superb line of Shirts
This is one of the prettiest line of Shirts in the
state, and for style and fit they can't be beat. They
are the output of the leading factories of the United
States and to move them quick we have put the price on
