Now hold your breath gentle reader for a second. We are not going to get off the time worn phrase "look out girls" but we will say, however, that there is a certain school ma'am in this neighberhood that says she always loves to ride In a new buggy, especially if it has red running gears and the accom panying nice looking young man to - - er - - ah - - hold the lines you know. We understand that there are a few persons in this community sufferings from enlargement of the cerebrum. The several cases are each accompanied by a still worse case of ingrowing toe nails. The attacks we under stand, were caused by prodigious excitement occasioned by our having referred (in a more or less careless way) to them thru this column. We wish to state right here that you who are rais ing such a roar, have our permis sion to make a trip to Wa-Keeney and whip the editor. We should think that you would be very thankful that the public had had a chance to notice you thru the press. Unless there is less of a general buzz we will drop a few of the old regulars, and they will float into gentle but utter oblivion. It pays to advertise. "C"? BIG CREEK. Pleasant weather again.
