The Goose Question Settled
Mr. John Seal gives a very
interesting account of how
"the goose question' was set
tled in a little controversy at
Vinton Station. It appears
that Mr. Seal owns a dog, pre
sented to him by oilr Auditor,
tnd named Billy." in honor ot
that official. Lately Billy,'
Mr. Seal and Mr. Andrew Ross
rambled off towards Vinton
Station, and in the meantime
Billy wandered from his com
pinions, bent on mischief, aud
killed a widow woman's goose.
Soon Mr. Seal was waited up
on by a half a dozen determin
ed looking lellows who de
manded blood lor blood; Billy
should answer with bis life an
less Mr. Seal then and there
saiii-fitfd the widow 'or the loss
ot the goose, with filthy lucre.
They were very demonstrative
and pocithe in their deraandb
and Mr. S was about to yield,
when Mr. Ross struck a tragic
attitude, and his deepest and
eavageat toues commanded S.
to "go fur theml" Mr. S. says
he lelt nerved up and strength
ened by Andrew's determined
manner, and raised hi cane to
strike the foremost of his as
sailants. Befoie commencing
active hostilities, however, like
a wise general, he turned to
look al the condition of his re
serve. Andrew had fled to the
bills with the speed ot an ante
lope, aud a column of the en
emy with clubs and pistols
had forced a breach between
Billy aud his master, and he
Billy vvas making as hasty a
retreat to the east as the man
ol the tragic attitude was to
the west. Deserted by his re
serves Mr. S. suddenly remem
bered that this was the age ol
arbitration rather than war,
and the matter was dip omaiic
ly settled, by a J tint Uigb
Uommission, Mr. S. p tying ac
tual damages, the opposite
party generously waiving ail
claim for constructive dam
ages, such as danger incurred,
damage to crops by los& ol
time, etc., all p r lies bring d
lighted with the beauties of
diphmtcy. Mr. Seal got home
in time to enjoy a good night's
sleep. Billy appeared about
ten o'clock, while Andrew
came in just before ennrine the
next morning oovered all over
with glory and cues le burs and
his clothes much torn by the
part lie nad taken in the con
flict. Sucn Is war; and such I-diplomacv.
