CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER,
SATURDAY MARCH 6, 1875
The world Is all dark or the world Is all
Just as we choose to make it;
Our burden Is heavy, our burden Is light,
Just as we happen to take it;
Ami people who grumble and people who
At the worid and its every proposal,
Would gumble an 1 groan If the world were
With ihe sun, ntooa and stars at disposal.
It Is all very well to have beaut" and health,
But it ugly and sick we must bear It;
It is all very well to havo oceans of wealth,
But we find, if we must, we cau spare it;
But healthy and wealthy, or sickly and poor,
We are wise lo be "careless and happy,"
Aud gracefully try all our ills to endure,
Though we try till we're " hairless and
Not all can be noble, not all can be great;
But our Uvea with Ged's love we can leaven.
And whether of high or lowly estate
'Tls the same to our Father in heaven.
The world may seem dark or the world may
As we cling to the old, old story;
And cheerfully work, with our lamps burn
Till we enter the portals of glory.
A True Ntory ef a Salinas Ball,
[From the San Jose Mercury.]
"Not any in mine, if you please,"
said Jim Boggs to our reporter, as they
were about to indulge in a friendly
glass of lager beer at Alex. Muller's,
upon whose well-spread lunch table
Jim discovered a plate of fragrant
Liniberger; "I rayther soured on
cheese, leastwise on Limberger, at the
ball at Salinas. I never told you
about it, did I?" said Jim. " Well, it
was when they had mud and fog at
Salinas, you bet. The mud was so
thin and the fog was so thick that you
couldn't tell which was which. Old
Peters had just built his hall, and the
boys thought it about the square thing
to start off with a dance—a right nifty
one; and when the Salinas boys let
themselves out sunthin' had to come.
You can bet your bowels on that and
staud a right smart chance of gettin' a
spare set of in'ards.
It bothered 'em some to git their
boots in shape, 'cause iv them days if
a feller walked on his hands his boots
would be still three feet under that
doby mud. So they finally concluded
to bring their boots to the old hall
alongside the ball-room, * and have
Pete, the boot-black, shine 'em up,
and then when they got ready the fel
lers could get 'em there, and into the
dance without ary speck.
So eleven of 'em brought their boots
and sent for old Pete and told him to
throw hisself and not mind expenses;
and when he had got done to put in
sunthin' so they could git 'em on with
out being pounded ou with a maul.
And then the boys went and had a so
ciable game of pitch-seven-up for the
Pete blacked the boots clean up to
tops and when he got through with
'em and stood 'em in a row you could
see twenty-two Petes—it looked like
the house was full of darkies —and
then he fixed 'em so the boys could git
'em on quite easy and quit.
After Pete had gone, along cum that
Iwfii *vn -. a.™ T~.,..~ tt. t„„w -
look at them boots and then scratched
his head like he was trying to think of
sumthin' and he started for Johnson's
"I'd like a little of that old Limber
ger of yours," says Sam to the clerk.
And Sam told him attain.
"Not much—you won't like it," said
the clerk; "but you can help yourself;
it's out In the back yard."
Sam started for the back yard, but
the clerk yelled to him to hold ou.
"You ain't fixed to go after that
cheese," said the clerk.
So he gave him an onion to hold iv
his mouth and put a clothes-pin on his
nose and told him to keep to the wind
ward of the cheese and not come back
through the store.
It was a heavy job, but Sam got
away with the cheese and got back to
them boots; and he jest mashed up
that Limberger and put a right smart
chunk into each of them boots, and
chen he went and spilt kerosene and
oologne on the floor and burnt up two
r three old shirts, and he got up a
smudge, you would have thought a
'pothecary shop was on fire, and then
Sam jest lit out.
The boys came in for their boots at
about ten o'clock. They were purty
well set up, and they naterally put it
up that the things that Sam had
strung around was what was the mat
ter, and then got into them boots and
out of the door as quick as they could.
Mighty nifty they looked in the
ball-room, aud the boys that come in
from the ranches had to take a back
seat while them shiny fellers waltzed
It weren't long before their pardners
began to look wild like, and their
noses got sot up like old women's
when they go pokin' round the house
in the night time, askin' everybody if
they don't smell cotton burning; and
then the fellers would quit and
go outside and stand on one foot and
twist their necks oft" trying to look at
their heels, and ask the other fellers if
they saw anything on their boots be
sides blacking; and then desired to
know who some fellers was; and then
they'd go back and dance again; and
then the rest of the chaps went out
and looked at their boots and cussed
and eat cloves, and jest said what
they'd like to do, and they tried to go
on with the dance, but it got too hot
and the gals wouldn't dance, but sat
by the winders and said it was awful;
and one or two faicted and the chaps
got white around the gills and the ball
jest busted. Then every feller made
remarks and insiniations about some
other chap, and there was five or six
tights; and when they got home they
went snuftin' around the same way
and finally concluded that it was in
the atmosphere; aid then when they
pulled off those boots It was in the at
mosphere so it would well nigh knock
a bull down; and eleven pair of boots
went out of eleven winders and eleven
of the maddest fellers you ever see lay
awake all night thinking what they'd
do in the . lornirg with a shot-gun.
Next day the/ found out who got
that Limberge.', but Sam Jones had
gone to Monterey. He came back in
about two weiks and packed a shot
gun all the wh.le. Whenever he came
across one of tbem cheese fellers he'd
make him throw up his hands till he
explained it tc him.
"I were at the ball and I've had no
use for Limbtrger since," said Jim.
Anybody might know that Bailey
was back in Danbury. Alluding to
ice on the walks, he says: "We can
understand why the druggists do not
clear their fronts. People must
live. But we don't understand the
A Moment of Horror.
For twenty-three years old Jake
Williard has cultivated the soil in
Baldwin county, and drawn therefrom
a support for himsulf and wife. He is
childless. Not long ago Jake left the
bouse in search of a cow. His route
lay through an old worn-out patch of
clay land, about six acres in extent,
in the comer of which was a well 25
or 30 feet deep that at some time,
probably, had furnished the inmates
of a dilapidated house near by with
water. In passing this spot, an ill
wind drifted Jake's " tile " from bis
head, and maliciously wafted it to
the edge of the old well and in it tum
Now Jake had always practiced the
virtue of economy, and he immedi
ately set about recovering the lost hat.
He ran to the well and, finding it dry
at the bottom, he uncoiled the rope
which he had brought for the purpose
of capturing the truant cow, and after
several attempts to catch the hat with
a noose, he concluded to save time by
going down Into the well himself. To
accomplish this, he made fast one end
of the rope to a fence hard by, and
was soon on his way down into the
It is a fact, of which Jake was no
less obvious than the reader hereof,
that Ned Wells was in the dilapidated
building aforesaid, antl that an old
blind horse, with a bell on his neck,
who had been turned out to die, was
lazily grazing within a short distance
of the well.
The devil himself or some other
wicked spirit, put it into Ned's crani
um to have a little fun; so he quietly
slipped up to the horse, unbuckled the
strap, and approached with slow and
measured "ting-a-ling" to the edge of
"Dang the old blind horse!" said
Jake; "he's a comin' this way sure,
and got no more sense than to fall in.
But the continued approach of the
"ting-a-ling" told as plainly as words
that old Ball wouldn't " whoa." Be
sides, Jake was at the bottom, rest
ing before trying to " shin it" up the
"Great Jerusalem!" said he; "the old
cuss will be a-top o' me before J. can
say Jack Robinson! Whoa! dangyou,
Just then Ned drew up to the edge
of the well and with his foot kicked a
little dirt into it.
"Oh, Lord!" exclaimed Jake, falling
on his knees at the bottom of the well;
"I'm gone now —Whoa!— Now I la*
me down to sleep—Whoa! Ball!—I
pray the Lord my soul to —Whoa!
now!—Oh, Lord! have mercy on me!"
Ned could bold la no longer, and
fearful that Jake might suffer from his
frignt, he revealed himself.
Probably Ned didn't make tracks
with his heels toward that well. May
be Jake wasn't up to the top of it in
order. May be not; I don't know.
But Ido know that if Juke Muds out
who sent you this, it will be the last
squib you'll get from me.
