Tlie Owl as a Poet
Since the arrival of the pig by express last year, sent by a wicked man at Watortown, no package has created the consternation at this office that a box containing an Owl did, which, arrived Wednesday from Oak Center. The name of the donor was not given, but the name " Old Parker " is on the box, and that is probably the name of the owl. He is a lively bird, and would make a good "bird poet," such as we wrote of a short time since. Who knows but this is a girl poet who has been taken at her word, and turned into a bird. If this is the girl poet who wrote, "I would I were a bird," she has got herself into the worst scrape of her life. The eyes look more like a girl than anything, and when the owl winks with one eye, and looks at us as though she meant to be so understood presuming that it is a she it makes us tremble, and forget business, and wink back. If this is a girl poet turned into an owl, we wonder whether it is the girl's or the owl's appetite that enables the insect to eat three pounds of beef. If it is the girl's appetite that has been sawed off on to an owl, it would be a mean trick on the owl, if he had to get his own living. When the bird winks, and makes its mouth go, we think it is a girl poet transformed, and retaining many of the girl's best qualities. To see whether there was any girl left in the owl, we put a mouse in the box with the bird, expecting if the girl symptoms predominated the owl would take its feathers in both claws, and climb up on something to get away, and scream. But there is more owl in the bird than girl poet, because the bird snatched the mouse in its claw, and with its bill tore the little animal into fragments and eat him. So, if there is any girl left in the composition of that owl, the girl poet has got her stomach full of nasty mouse. We warned the girl poet not to become a bird, and if she has not taken our advice she knows by this time how it is herself. But what a wink the owl has got. That wink on a girl would break up a prayer meeting. A girl with such a wink as that could go to church and not a man in the congregation could ever tell where the text was. And what a wise look the bird has got. It sits and seems to be thinking of the hereafter, or maybe it is wondering where the next meal is coming from. It is possible that some friend, knowing we wanted an associate editor, has sent the owl to take a position on bursta Maybe some dear-friend Has been transformed into an owl, and caused themselves to be shipped to us, to get into the sanctum and see what is, going on. Ifj ihfi. eyes were another oolor, and they should wink that way, we should be sure a joke was being played on us. Any person that wants to hire a good owl to eat meat on shares, can apply at this office. Peck's Sun.

Druggist's Mistake. Two friend named Ferris and Parker, of Denver, feeling somewhat oppressed by the heat one day last week, went into a dru store and asked the immaculate clerk for two small doses of buchu. Having swallowed the same they started for home. They had not prooeeded far when Ferris began to twit Parker upon the extraordinary and unbec niing hue which his face had assumed, under the influence of the heat. "You haven't much to boast of," Parker: "youra is about a3 red as a. fellow's face cjuld get without breaking out.'1 The two friends theu halted, and exchanged more elaborate criticisms the appearance of each other's countenances, as a result of which they- concluded to make the quickest trip to 1 he drug-store ou record. There the obliging clerk forthwith discovered that he had given them belladonna instead of bujchu. A phy?icun happened to beinlhe shop at tk&tircH, and by hjs assistance a couple "of valuable lives were saved. .
