Tbe Bald-Headed Han.
The other day a lady accompa
nied by her son, a very small boy,
boarded the cars at Little Rock.
The woman had a careworn look
about her face like a tattered veil,
and many of the questions asked
by the boy were answered by
sighs.
“Ma,” said the boy, “that man’s
like a b.iby, aint he?” pointing
to a bald-headed mm sitting in
front of them.
“Hush.”
“Why must I hush ?’*
After a moment's silence: “Ma,
what’s the matter with that man's
head?”
“Hush, I tell you. He’s bald.”
“What’s bald?’
“His head hasu’t got any hair
on it.”
“Did it come off?”
“I guess so.”
“Will mine come off’.”'
“Some time, maybe.”
“Then I will bo bald, won’t I?”
“Yes. Don't ask so in my ques
tions.”
After another silence the boy
exclaimed: “Ma, look at that fly
on that man’s head.”
“If you don’t hush 1 11 whip you
when we get home.’’
“Look ! There’s another fly.
Look at em tight.”
"Madame,” said the man put
ting aside a newspaper and look
ing up, "what’s the matter with
that young hyena?”
The woman blushed, stammer
ed out something, and attempted
to smooth back the boy's hair.
“One fly, two flies, three flies,”
said the boy calmly, following
with his eyes a basket of oranges
carried by the newsboy.
“Here you young hedge hog,”
said the bald-headed man, “if you
don’t hush I’ll have tho conductor
to put you off tho cars.”
The poor woman not knowing
what else to do, boxed the boy’s
ears and gave him two oranges to
keep him quiet.
“Ma, have I got red marks on
my head ?”
* I’ll slap you again ifyeu don’t
hush ?”
“Mister,” said the boy after a
soort pause, “does it hurt to be
bald-headed?”
“Youngster,” said the man, "“if
you’ll keep quiet I’il give you a
quarter.”
The boy promised and the
money was paid over.
Tho man took up Ids paper and
resumed his reading.
“This is my bald-headed
money,” resumed the boy. "When
1 get bald-headed I am goidg to
give the boys spondulix. Mister,
have all the bald beaded men got
money ?"
The tormented man threw down
his paper, arose and howled :
“Madam, hereafter when you
travel leave that young gorrilla at
home. Hitherto I always tho’t
that the old prophet was very
cruel for calling the she bears to
kill children for making sport of
his head, but now I am forced to
believe he did a Christian act. If
your boy had been in the crowd
tie would have died first. If I
can’t find another seat on this
Irani I’ll ride on the Jcow-catcher
rather than remain here.”
“The bald-headed man is gone,”
jaid the boy, and the woman lean
ed back and sighed.
Sheep vs. I>ogn.
The Taylor County Independent
says they have 3,000 doga In that
county, and we suppose half as
many sheep. The sheep are tax
^d, but If any one says a word
about taxing the dogs there is a
regular pandemonium raised about
oppression of the poor. West Vir
ginia was disigned by the Al
mighty as a great sheep-growing
State, but if it is to be infested
and impoverish by 150,000 worth
less curs, it will never be what it
was designed for. Sheep and dog
raising cannot go together, ana
the sooner we get rid of the dogs,
the sooner we will have the sheep.
You can raise three sheep with
what it will cost to raise a dog. The
Income from the sheep will be $15,
while the dogs will cost you a vast
amount of ill-feeling between
neighbors with not one cent of
profit. We could not pass a law
to compel people not to keep
logs, but we can tax the useless
nuisance until those who keep
them will keep them under con
trol.— The VaUey Iribune.
Prejudice Kills. •
“Eleven years our daughter suf
fered on a bed of misery under the

jorneof the worst) physicians,who
gave her disease various names
Put no relief, and now she is re
stored to us in good health by as
