As we look back over the year that
is so fast slipping by we realize that
there are many things that we shouhi
b'e thankful for. As to myself, 4the
chief among them all is that I don't
live any closer to Beckham than I do.
I never have been ready for Xmas
when it comes, and this boy of mir'
.~ says that I will not be ready for the
Sjudgment when it comes. But thi:s
boy is no preacher. However, I do
not wish to test the matter now.
The Xmas wood has to be hauled
and the hogs have to be killed and
corn sent to the mill, and a stove
put up for the little grand-baby thai
is coming, and the kitchen has to be
covered to keep the custards fromr

have to divide my surplus money with'
my darned poor neighbors, and thai
will take some time.
Oh, I have lots to do before I car
sit down in the corner and hold our
baby and "chaw" my Red J tobacco.
I wish that there were no law
breakers in the world and that every
body lived in peace and gave their
neighbors no trouble. Then I would
not have to trudge through the rair
to keep cattle and hogs off my oats.
It is a pity for good people who never
break the laws have to be taxed to
pay the expenses of criminal courts

only when they are hanging around

And Mr. Editor, when you go to your

There is deep and heartfelt sorrow
in the Beckham familY- to-night. Yes

Bull had many noble traits of char

that trouble ver comes single hand

bought a 'nice 49chat and about the
