PEACE. ) MR. HUNSAKER Makes More Medicine -Wants a Sheep Herder. Darby, Mont., Feb. 9, 1900. To the Youthful Editor of the Ravalli County Democrat: My Deuh Boy:— " Your essay that you published last week was a masterpiece of grandilo quence. The subject was a dog—a dog chain—a J. D. Hunsaker—a poet "whose name is Bobby Burns" and a D. Hunsaker whom von forcibly in sinuate is not as good as a dog. The composition was perfect. It was touch ing. The sagacity of the master to his dog and all of it was wonderful, h , ' and that fellow, the mysterious J. D. Hunsaker, came in just right. He kindly left you a wee small loop hole to crawl out of the cramped position you placed yourself in when you once asserted that the other fellow, D. Hun saker's name, was not yet on the tax lists. I have said that yonr subject for essay composition, rhetorical fire works, etc., was the dog, the dog chain, Robert Burns the Scottish poet, J. D. H. and D. H. And it was all of them, yes, more than all of them, for did „. t hit r Editor Miles Rom _ ■ r ney of the Western News a hard one. That was meant to be right from the shoulder and to land full on tho jaw. but you struck a trifle to one side. It was a miss and a miss is as good as a mile. I am alluding now to the article signed by Mr. J. P. Simonseu of Vic tor, Ravalli county, Mont., but it smacks too much of Shermanesque compos! ion anl surely those that read it cannot help l in observe it. How long di 1 it take you to get to gether all that stuff—possibly a whole week of days and half the nights time thrown in? Why, our boy that is herding the sheep could beat it in 24 hours time. And say, by the way, had not you better quit the paper and come up and herd our flock of sheep for us and let the bov that is nsw (hording try editing the paper awhile. He has aspirations in that direction and I judge or think that you would do better as a sheep herder than an editor of the McGinty organ. Remember though, that I will not make the exchange without the full consent of Supt. McGinty in black and white. Now this is my last. I shall not waste any more ammunition on you. You can rave and keep on raving about the dog, the dog chain, Bobby Burns, I. D. H., Miles Romney and D. H., bul I shall not notice you again as an editor, though perhaps I may notice you as a sheep herder provided you and your boss are both agreed that you herd our sheep wages $15 a month and no more. Thatis probably more than you will earn editing a paper. I think the reading public is tired reading all this rot about dogs, dog chains, Scotch poets,one horse editors, Supt. McGinty and the Medicine Tree man. So I for oi e, shall "let up." Yours Truly, D. Hunsaker. There is no better medicine for the babies than Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.
