Things at the White House
Looking mighty curious ;
Niggers running everything;
White people furious.
Niggers on the front porch,
Niggers on the gable ;
Niggers in the diniog room.
Niggers at the table.
Niggers in the sitting room.
Making all the talk ;
Niggers in the ballroom,
Doing cake walk.
Niggers in the east room,

Niggers in the music room
Singing coon song.
Niggers iv the hallway
Taking off their wraps.
Niggers in the billiard room
Shooting game of craps.
Niggers iv the store room
Packing way their plunder,
Niggers in the bedroom
Snoring like thunder.

Niggers ou the stairway
With very much satiety ;
Niggers in the blue room
Assembled for society.
Niggers ia the front yard,
Niggers in the back ;
Niggers in the omnibus,
And niggers in the hack.
On they go to Washington
With a mighty rush,
Forty thousand niggers
Getting in the push.
There is trouble iv tbe White House,
More than you can tell;
Yelling like wild men,
Niggers raisin' hell,
I see a way to settle it,
Just as clear as water-
Let Mr. Booker Washington
Marry Tedd 's daughter.
Or if this does not overflow
Teddy's cup of joy,
Let Mies Dinah Washington
Marry Teddy's boy.
But everything is settled ;
Roosevelt is dead.
Niggers in the White House

I crossed the creek the Yau

two guns which I had placed
in position to cover our crossing.
When the last of the infantry broke, I
retired with them, and came up with
"Old Jubal"—some three or four hun
dred yards west of the creek —trying
to rally his men on the road. Finding
himself helpless, for his men would
listen to nothing, iv his desperation he
bawled out: "Run, run ;G— d —you,

struck the broken bridge, 1 heard tbe
Yankee bugle sound the charge, and
down upon us 6wept a squadron of
cavalry. I rode into the bushes and
let them pass. On they pressed to the
broken bridge, where they found Cap
tain Ilardwicke, who had just passed
his battery over. They rode up to the
Captain and cried, "Halt!" The Cap
tain, one of those impulsive men, and
not knowing that they were Yankees,
called out: "D—you, what are you
halting me for!" The Yauk replied,
with his pistol right iv the Captain
face, who, discovering his mistake,
bade the Yank good night.
I was also at Fisher's Hill when the
Yankees pressed me so hard that they
caught Lieutenant Spalding, of Coop

poor Sandy Pendleton, of Early's staff,
was shot. He had collected about

Ninety-eight Per Cent.
There is a fascination about big profits to a
business man. But the conservative and
cautious trader prefers to have the lesser
per cent, of interest and the larger per cent,
of safety in his Investments. There is no
business man who would not consider it a
sound proposition to invest In an enterprise
in which absolute loss was Impossible and
which offered ninety-eight chances in a
hundred of a rich profit. She statistics of
cures effected by Dr. Pierces (1 olden Medical
Discovery show that ninety-eight per cent,
of cases of "weak lungs" can be
absolutely cured. Almost if not all forms of
physical weakness may be traced to starva
tion. Starvation saps the strength. The
body is Jnst as much starved when the stom
ach cannot extract nutrition from the food
it receives as when there Is no food. "Weak
lungs." bronchial affections, obstinate
coughs, call for nourishment. ' Golden Med>
cal Discovery" supplies that nourishment in
its most condensed and assimilable form.
It makes "weak lungs' strong, by strength
ening the stomach and organs of digestion
which digest and distribute the food, and
by increasing the supply of pure blood.

Travoy Made by Two Crooked Tree
'I'm nLa Is a Handy Th[D»j for
L'ae In Wood Lota.
A very convenient logging arrange
ment for use in the wood lot in the
winter time is a travoy. It is made of
two crooked tree trunks about five or
six inches in diameter, six feet long.
The crooked ends are bolted together
as shown in the cut. The bent or
bolster is bolted about two-thirds of
the way back. This piece should be
strong and nested a little in the cen-
ter to form a hollow for the log to rest
jn. The log is held on by a chain,
which is hooked around one end of
the bolster at a, passed over the log
and under the bolster at the other
side of the travoy. From there it is
carried over the front crosspiece, b,
then under the crook at the point, c.
To load the travoy, it is laid bot
tom up on top of the log, or leaned
against its side, according to conven
ience. The chain is put into place
and the team hitched on, drawing side
ways. This turns the travoy over and
the log comes up on top, The team
is then unhitched, the chain passed
through under the point and rehitched
to the double tree and the log is load
ed ready to haul to the skidway.—H.

They Do .Not Cat the Farm Into Rnta,
Bnt Make a Smooth Road
Over Field..
This has been the worst fall and
winter for getting in crops ever
known in this region. The rains were
so frequent and so heavy that the
corn was too wet most of the time;
and the soil became so soft that it
would not hold up the ordinary
wagon. We had the advantage of
our neighbors, for we had a set of
metal wheels, with four-inch tires.
A large part of our corn was on
low land, and the river began to
back up over it before we got it
gathered. Had we been compelled to
depend on the old-fashioned narrow
tire, the water would have risen over
it before we were half done, as, in
that case, we could not have pulled
half a load out of the field; and as
we barely made it out with the last
load as the water came, one can
readily see how we would have been
left if we had not had wide trees.
After using metal wheels about
three years I do not see what any
body wants with a narrow-tire wood
en wheel. There is enough spent on
them keeping them in repair to buy
the whole wagon. I have known
men to lose enough on a single trip
to buy a new wagon, by having the
tire run off and allow, the wheel to
be crushed before anyone knew what
had happened—this taking place
while ayjay from home, and leaving

Weajt Ahead of the East.
All sorts of new plans for teach
ing agriculture are being tried in the
west. In Missouri an exhibition car
is hauled by the railroads. This car
carries samples of farm products for
exhibition. Speakers go along, and
the car can be turned into a small
hall for holding a meeting if de
sired. In a dairy section, stock food,
forage plants, dairy utensils and
even animals w.ill be carried. In a
fruit-growing section tools and ap
pliances for cultivating, spraying,
etc., will be on band. All this is un
der direction of the Missouri experi
ment station. It seems like a grand
thing, especially for a large state.
The west is ahead of the east in such
matters, because the western farm
er has been able to make his power
definitely felt.—Rural New Yorker.
