"Where are you going in such a huriy T"
"Only back into the house a minute, to change
my pocketbook." "Changolt!" 'Ves, I had
no idea the day was so hot ; 1 started out with
my sealskin pocketbook." Le Figaro.
An old colored minister Sunday sent up the
followins petition to the throne of grace:
"Sum ob dis here congregation will go to the
court house, some to do jail, some to do gal

A little girl once said sho would be very
glad to go to heaven, because they have plenty
of preserves there. On being cross-examined
Bhe took down her catechism and triumphant

Answer: Because he makes, preserves, and
keeps them."
At a Sunday school in A., the superintend-
ent, desiring to impress on the small scholars
the "Trinity," asked : "How many fathers hare
you ?" Some answered one, others two. "Have
you not another lather?" asked the sunerin

Devouring an Account Uoolt.
A Arm of masons at Newburyport, Mass
employed a hod-carrier, whose novel method
ot keeping account of his time was brought to
light by a droll circumstance. Ho went one
evening to his employer's homo with the sad
intelligence that he had lost his account book
He said the pigs had got in and eaten it up
"What sort of an account did you keep ?'
asked the employer.
"1 had a nail-keg, and when I worked
whole day I put in a potato, and when half a
day halfapotato.and the pigs ate 'em Intirely.'
"Very well," said the gentleman; "I have
kept your time." Having looked it over he
told the man that he had overdrawn his ac
count by about $1.
"All right," said he, "it's a Email amount,
ana you're welcome to it I"
He'll Get It.
A Brooklyn lawyer who has the reputation
ol securing pensions for men who were within
twenty miles of any battle, was waited upon a
few days ago by a man who thought lie de
served something trom U nele bum.
"Did you go to war ?"
"No, but I was in camp at Elmira for ten
days."
"Were you accidently wounded?"
"No."
"Had you a heavy lit of sickness?"
"No."
"Get chronic diarrhoea ?"
"No."
"Contract rheumatism ?"
"No."
"My Iriend," said the lawyer, as he looked
at him in a fatherly way, "some pension agents
might get discouraged over your case and re-
tuso to touch it, but 1 shall at once forward
your papers for a pension on the ground that
you were broken of your usual rest during
those ten nights, uan again in sixty days lor
your back pay. Good morning, sir next!"

Just In Time.
It was also an Ohio man who, when a terri
ble storm set in one night, rushed into the
house of a neighbor and cried out :
"Jones, this is the ending up of earth !"
"I'm afraid so I'm afraid so!" was the
reply.
"And what ohall wo do !'.
"Make our peace with Heaven!"
"The wind blew still stronger, the house be
gan to shake, and the excited man exclaimed :
"Jones, you lost five Dushels of wheat last
fall!"
"Yes."
"And you have your suspicions ?"
"1 have. The man who took my wheat had
better own up."
"Can you forgive him ?"
"I can."
"Well "
Here the wind suddenly dropped, and after
a look through the window the conscience
stricken man turned and finished:
"Yes, if I ever meet him I'll advise him to
call around." Detroit Free Pre.
Licking an Elder.
One summer in the ypara agone while a
camp meeting was in progress in Eaton coun
ty there arrived on the grounds a bully named
Miller, who had made a vow to lick Elder
Johnson and break up the whole business.
The Elder heard the news with composure,
and as soon as at liberty he hunted up a world
ly mend ot his own and asked:
"Friend Smith, didn't you used to light in
your vounger days?"
"Ah! Elder, I have had many a turn with
the boys."
"And what is the effect of a sudden blow
between the eyes ?"
"It astonishes and humbles."
"Is there any danger of killing a man by
such a blow?' i
"Never knew a case of it."
The Elder went his way with a serene smile
on his lace. Miller had his coat oil' and was
hunting for him, and they met face to face as
they turned a wngon. Miller started to crack
his heels and crow, but he never finished. The
Elder took him one square between the look
ers without stopping his pace, and It took
twelve rowdies, three dippers of water and two
quarts of whisky torevibe the patient and get
him off the grounds. One day, a year after
wards, he met the Elder and seriousiy asked:
"Elder, some of the boys say I was kicked
by a horse, and others stick to it that i was
struck by lightning, but I've always had a
suspicion that you hit me with a provision
stand. How was it anyhow V Detroit Free
Press.
Simple ICemedy for Sweeny,
In copying an article on the treatment of
atrophy, known as sweeny, trom another pa
per, the editor ol the Sriudijie.Jlerord subjoins
the following statement:
But we wish to offer an unprofessional rem
edy used by ourselves when, as a plow-boy on
the old home farm, we wrestled with the vor
ious problems connected with our duties. We
then cured sweeny with invariable success by
daily pounding the depression caused by the
wasted muscles, usinit our fist, a stone or a
stick for the purpose. Medically speaking,
we percussed the atrophy. V e doubt whether
there is any case of sweeny that will not yield
to persistent percussion. Old, chronic cases
will, of course, require longer time than the
acute. The shoulder should be bathed daily
with water, and, where possible, rest should be
given the animal, as a speedier cure w ill be
effected if it is not worked. We venture to say
that I'T' ('! -f run. n l.ii-Ji lnvn'rfo Mi- !'-

very grave objection of costing nothing but a

Coleman City, Tex., April 28, 1882
Leaving Waco on the 21st inst. with all the
equipments and appendages of a cow boy
life, wo find ourselves in this broken, wild
western country.
The life of a cow hunter in the west is any
thing but pleasant, compared with that of the
average tourist. But, nevertheless, your cor
respondent enjoyed it hugely; for the ever
varied and thrilling .cenes enacted upon our
western border boget within us a desire to see
the West.
Coleman is a thriving little town ot only
few years' growth, being supported entirely
from the stock trade ; but since the passage ot
the Texas & Pacific westward the little towns
along that lino have taken a considerable
amount of her trade; but she still retains
fair ratio, and with the prospect of the Santa
Felt. II. she bids fair to make a city of no
little importance at no greatly distant day.
Tho surface of the country is hilly or undu
lating, consisting of a rod sandy soil, which
is certainly adapted to small grain if there
was sufficient rainfall. But this, like the
staked plains, seems to bo everlastingly sealed
against tho sturdy hand of the agriculturist
As I write it has been more than two months
since any rain, and everything is parched up

enough to support the stock.
The scenery throughout the country is love
ly, ever abounding with relics and curiosities
of the past. Here is a cavo with fresh ashes
of the last firo kindled by the red man as he
passed unwillingly from his native land. Or,
perchance, there stands some cloud-capped
mountain, lifting its hoary head heavenward.
as if wont to tell of the heroic deeds enacted
around its base, which will ever render its
name illustrious; one of which in particular
we noticed, as it bore tho name of Mount La
bor. And while we gazed passively upon its
rugged sides or dome-iike cap, I could but as
sociate it with the sacred mount of old from
whose summit the great law-giver ot Israel
viewed tho promised land.
There exist signs and traces of considerable
mineral wealth, which will doubtless be devel
oped sooner or later. One place I visited
showed every evidence of a mine of some de
scription, having been worked doubtless by
some race now extinct. As to whether these
ancient people were mining for gold, copper
or silver remains unsolved, as tho excavations
though deep and extensive, were too much

Stock raising out here is conducted on
amerent principle from other places. During
the spring or gathering season a number of
men surround a large section of country, driv

man cuts out his own cattle from the herd
Theso are commonly known as "Roundups ;"
and I think it is a very appropriate name, for
thousands of cattle are rounded up in these
nerds. It is very difllcult to keep stock to
gether during the winter; consequently every
spring finds them scattered to the four winds

wait. The thing I want to rite about is the as
sessors' meeting held on the 27th of April. It
was noticed so slightly by your correspondent
the people don't understand just how matters
stand. It wants a painter to portray all uv its
different phazes; in fact it would be hard on
eny pen to tell it all. So I will only mention
sum of the electrix ideas as put fourth. After
they had organized Mr. Savage wuz called on
He spoke his piece well. It wuz what I would

could du her justice on the board. The ques
tion as to what the law was in regard to assess
ing was called up, and as it read like this: "all
property shall bo assessed at n fair cash value"
and a fair cash value was interpreted to mean
"a voluntary sale for cash," what wuz to be
dun with it? A Mr. Miller scd, if it's true that
an assessor has to swar he will assess accordin'

to say right here, ez I had known him from a
boy up, 1 hev wished he could hev cot hold uv
a good strong piece uv meat not too strong

Lewis sot down there w uz a smile of satisfac

the county, feeling thankful to Mr. Lewis for
his able speech, being glad to know that when
