We have received the following or

1. H. Aull, 1sq., Newberry, E. U.:
Dear Sir: The following is too good
o keep, so will lot you have it:
A town darkey, with cup in hand,
vas standing at our artesian well it
hort timo since, when a country dar.
:oy jumped off his wagon and asked
ilm to allow him the use of his cup to
eot a drink of water. When the coun.
ry darkey had swallowed the water he
macked his lips and said: "Golly,
hat water's good, show's you bo'n."
Mr. Town Darkoy, with an air of
reat importance, replied: "In course
it's good; hit's boun' tor be good, fur
it como 4,000 feet from der intrils of
or yoarth, and hit's been scandalized
y der bes' gumnas from der State Uni
ersary, and what yer think tie say
it', got in lilt?"
"I dunno," replied the country da,.
ey, smacking,iis lips after swallowing
notier pint or so of the water.
"Well, lie say d0e is tenl grains of
x-hide gas, ten grains cowebonic gas,
m grains fox-fou'rus acid, and seventy
rains hydrophobia in dat air water -
ou know hit boun' ter be good; dat's a
ell. you bet;" and he walked away
iaving the country darkey shaking his
ead and meditating.
Finally the latter remarked: "Hit do
ts'e powerfull of der rawhide, but I
on't tas'e der 'phobia, nor der rou'rus
old, 1ec' dat fool nigger mean ass'
