ONE OF HER BEST
Miss Elvira Sydnor Miller on
the Hobson Osculation
Discussed in Poetry and Prose
Leading Citizens Interviewed
r
for the Louisville Times
What is that horrid noise I hear
asked Gossip on parade
The girls arc kissing- Hobson
how the grinning rounders
said
Theyve got him on the hotel porch
those girls from North and
South
They have a left hook round his
neck and are blocking up his
mouth
What is that awful row I hear
asked Gossip on parade
The Kansas girl is raising
sand the rounders gal
said -
Then Hobson smiles a weary smile
and Oh alas says he
This hero business isnt what
is cracked up to me
it
The thrilling question as to
whether the short bicycle skirt is
immodest must now give place to a
discussion on the subject of Hobson
and the St Louis girl who asked
him for a kiss Lieut Hobson is
said to have blushed so brilliantly
that the Japanese lanterns on the
hotel porch turned pale but he
rallied sufficiently to say that he
would feel honored or something to
that effect and was kissed then
and there in the presence of a pal
pitating audience So many peo
ple including Susan B Anthony
have condemned the girl for her
conduct that a visit was paid some
of our leading- Louisville heroes to
see how they viewed the occur
rence
Lcmme lone now lemmelonc
said Maj Ed Hughes coquettishly
as the question was propounded
If T give my opinion all the girls
in town will be running after me
for kisses and I am a timid man
Once I saved a fair girl from death
She was in the third story back of
a burning building when at the
risk of my life I climbed a ladder
and got her out By this time the
flames were whistling through my
mustache and our peril was great
Stay stay she hollered to me
lemme go back
Go back What do you want
to go back for This aint no as
bestos ladder
Oh but I must go back she
groaned laying her head on my
shoulder Only think of it dear
Major my new wire woven bustle
is left behind and I can never hold
up my head if I lobt it p 1 ease
go back
Well I felt for that girl I had
never worn a bustle myself but I
felt for her and we went back or
at least I left her on the ladder
while I rushed into the flaming
room and the first thing I saw was
the bustle hanging by the window
I grabbed it and fied and five min
utes later we were safe on the
ground
Let me kiss you for this you
dear noble man she sobbed as we
landed and she did kiss me and
the next minute that idiot of a girl
stamped on the ground and called
me names I had brought down
the canary bird cage And then
she wanted the kiss back but I
wouldnt give it
I am a married man said Col
Tom Gilmore rather sharply 1
do not care to express an opinion
though some believe m annexing
everything even all the kisses they
can get I hesitate to venture a re
mark on thtB subject for aa you
know there is hardly a day I do
not sink myself on Main street be
fore droves of wild cattle thereby
Having- the lives of many and the
girls might get the Hobson craze
and conic after me I cant say
what I would say if they asked for
a kiss but for safetys sake I think
I shall go out with a catchers
mask on
Mr J Rosa Todd wns curt and
sparing of npeech What would
he remarked oracularly
ccrtaiu cold no s in Ida voice
ftyppMt
T
Iwould simply do this I would
say Girl 1 will not give you any
thing
Of course I would take -it
laughed Col X um Simons bo
you think 1 am a baby and if two
rubies brimming with dew were of
fered me on a Silver salver that 1
would be sucker enough not to look
thatgift horse in the mouth No
no1 And then after inquiring the
name and address of the iady the
Colonel hurried away to -pack his
Valise and was heard telling- the
porter to put me off at St Louis
Col J Scott Newman hardly
knew what he would have done
The lady meant it aa a compli
ment he remarked with a smile
and when she gave Hobson the
refusal of a kiss courtesy prevented
his returning a refusal I do not
care however to talk about this
until I have given the matter my
serious consideration
Col George Doll was found sing
ing On the Banks of the Wabash
out on Sixth and York where the
street was filled with Water I
have just sent lor my naphtha
launch he said pleasantly
What do I think of Hobson and
that girl Go away now go away
I am a man of family and have to
appear alone and unprotected on
the streets every day I can not
nay I will not tell you what I
think And then as he boarded the
launch which had arrived he
turned and added with a meaning
smile Hobson was a lucky dog
wasnt he
Col Gus Straus though titw as
too al fresco for good taste He did
not object to the kiss so much as
the manner of offering it but be
lieved Hobson should have made
more than a single
And so this question of Hobsons
choice and whether he was
right in accepting the kiss or
not has upset the nerves of the
town Half of Main street is divid
ed and the matter will be discussed
this week by the Mose Green Glub
and the Irish American Society A
hot time is expected v
Chaplain Mclntyre of the Oregon
in a speech at Denver has defied
regulations and given Sampson
a severe roast and also made state
ments complimentary to Capt
Evans Here is an extract that
may call for a court martial i
Sampson wrote a report of the
battle and reported himself within
four miles ot the Cristobal Colon
when she pulled down her flag He
did that to get his share of the
prize money for a ship must be
within four miles to share in the
prize money So Sampson will get
l0u00 of prize money and Capt
Clark who fought the Oregon as
never man fonght before will get
only 500 and you who have ax
actly as much to do with the battle
as Sampson did will not get a
cent
Chaplain Mclntyre said that
when the Spanish ships ran out of
the harbor the Iowa was within
two miles of them and the Oregon
about three miles The oregon he
said tore up to the front like a shot
and met the Iowa moving to the
rear where lie added Capt Evans
kept her throughout the battle
The Chaplain offered no explana
tion of this alleged maneuver of the
Iowa He did not refer in any
manner to the conduct of Commo
dore Schley during the engagement
