Moreau, Publisher A table and a pitcher, A tumbler and a stand, A man in double-breasted clothes, And music by the band; A last appeal to reason, A crowd was cheering daft — Some folks think it’s Bryan, And others think it’s Taft, A speaker on a Pullman, A little pantomime, A hasty diagnosis of The perils of our time; A farewell and a promise, A benediction aft — Some folks think it’s Bryan, And others think it’s Taft. A man with twenty dollars, Another man with ten, A swift exchange of challenges, And two excited men; A show-down and a wager, A banknote and a draft — Some folks think it’s Bryan, And others think it’s Taft. A homestretch and a tumult, A spyglass and a shout, A feverish excitement while They try to make them out; A flying dust cloud leading, A second cloud abaft — Some folks think it’s Bryan, And others think it’s Taft. In the old Roman calendar Novem ber was the ninth month. Blessings fell early,and the empire gave thanks just before the first frost; but about 700 B. C. the trusts left the people so little to be thankful for after nine months that it was decided to wait and see if anything would come of the Roman elections. Numa accord ingly made November the eleventh mouth and had Thanksgiving fall with the first snows, notwithstanding the month gets its name from the Latin novem (nine.). The frisky colt will sniff the air and hear the whistling quail, and the festive calf will indicate the zenith with his tail. The frost will paint the forest with a deep and redder dye, the hired man will shuck the corn, the pumpkin vine will pie, the politicians will hit up their office holding feud, and the modest maple tree will blush and come out in the naoe. And then the presidential race Will hold its royal sway, And everyone will exercise His liver, anyway. He’ll bounce it up and down between His pancreas and gizzard, And waltz it through his inner work From A around to Izzard, And even though his present r ’.e May prove to be in vain, He’ll have the health and strength to run Sometime, perhaps, again. At any rate the candidates will dash into the stretch, and both Bill o’-the-Wlsps will make themselves hard to ketch. They’ll spurt in spir ited response to many wild arousers, and fan the dust up with their slack, downhanging trousers. They 11 come in sight exhibiting a score of fancy paces, and only hit the trembling earth in four or five high places. The air will darken with the flight of gravel, dirts and sods, and the crowd will sound its battle cries and give and offer odds. And Teddy mean while will wedge in quite close be side the track, with something that he has concealed within a paper sack and when his entry charges down, hot-footing like the wind, T. R. will hang a hornet nest upon him down behind. And theq there will be doings on This sphere — The earth will pitch and buck to bea A frenzied Texas steer. The eun will spin around and round Apd blow up once or twdee, Th r 'oon will turn a very dark And m mdy ball of ice, And no one will "remain to see Who won the race for vice. The election will be held on the 3rd, and the trusts will hold an all night prayer meeting on the 2nd. Mr. Bryan will cast his vote for Mr. Taft at Lincoln. Mr. Taft will return the courtesy at CinclnnaU, and Mr. Rockefeller will receive the news at Cleveland. The quadrennial ass who wheels another quadrennial ass through town on a wheelbarrow wiH start from the postoffice at 10, o’clock on the morning of the 4th, followed by 00 boys and the Fool killer. The complete returns will be in by the ftanual *lu>s*down fcelveen city and country life will be complete by the 20th, when the farmer will have his cellar stocked with pota toes, turnips, kraut, honey, nuts, hams, sidemeat, souse, popcorn, pic kles, pigs feet, applebutter, lard, sweet potatoes and sorghum, and the city man will enter the winter with his cellar stocked with ten tons of hard coal and two gas meters. The man who made election bets. Relying on his knowledge, Will write a sad note to his son, Withdrawing him from college. The football season will wind up. The class room claim its braves, And the faculty will order flowers x And decorate the graves. A double fleece-lined coat of hair will come in style for dogs, and the farmer will put on the pot and kill his fattened hogs. The air will team with shots and squeals and sundry flavors sweet, the good housewdfe wil render lard and scrape and pickle xect, the spared old hens will get a note of terror in their cacklings, and the children will refresh their turns with good old-fashioned cracklings. Mr, Roosevelt’s annual proclama tion advancing the price of turkey 10 cents a pound will be issued about the middle of next month. He will urge us to give thanks that 55,000,- 000 cubic feet of earth were exca vated at Panama in October. The sad-faced gobbler will address His young and tearful flock, And clip for memory’s sweet sake A small and tear-stained lock, And then, with many sighs, will lay H’s head upon the block. Until the 25th November will be under the zodiacal sign of Scorpio. People born under Scorpio are cross at supper, and it is better, if possi ble, to be born after the 25th, wnen it is under the sign of Sagitarius.the Archer. Sagitarius people are only cross at breakfast,when everybody is. The flower for November is the chrysanthemum, which signifies that Japan received our fleet without stalling anything. The moon will be full on the Bth. Along about the 29th The Duke of the Abruzzi Will get it all fixed up that he Stall wed his tootsey-wootsey; And Elkins pere will dance a jig And dream of wedding cake, While everybody else makes bets On whether it will take. And then December will blow in with cold and Christmas glee, and old King Coal, the merry soul, will thunder out, “Pay me!” ECHOPHONES. Tomorrow: All Saints’ Day.

The cargo consisted of over 500 barrels of fine large shrimp, which were caught in just a little over three hours by four patent seines in from ten to twelve feet of water at Point Chico, La. The crew put in thirty-six hours of hard work icing them down, and thirty-five tons of ice were required. The shrimp were delivered to the Dunbar, Lopez & Dukate factory, and all of today was consumed in unload ing and packing them, over 500 peo ple being employed in handling them. In one catch in one seine, it is re lated by the crew, 2oU barrels of shrimp were taken. Captain Fred. Eaton was in command of The Jerry. Oysters are reported to be unusu ally fat this year.

It is perhaps the fate of every home newspaper to be picked up by clientelle of readers, who, after de vouring its every line for an hour or so, throws it down with the re mark that there is “not a thing in it. Not infrequently these critics have walked over to a neighbor’s to bor row tne paper the very is olf the press—they stopped the paper themselves because “there was notmng in its columns of inter est.” i The facts are that there are very few people who have been connected with a community for any length of time but who know that they cannot do without the local paper. If thej nave moved away from their olu home town, they are the more in debted to its weekly visits, and let it miss them once and it is like being disappoi ted by a dear friend who disappointed by a dear friend who And yet, there are certain people who leel that they must beg, borrow or steal it so as to gloat over its contents, and they lay it down with some uncomplimentary remark, which they seem to think will make them more blase. We had a subscriber once who went away for a month’s visit out of town and came in and stopped his paper just before his departure. When he got off the train on his return, he found that the residence next to his own had burned down three weeks before, and it took him all the afternoon questioning people to learn the particulars where his friend’s family had gone. He asked another neighbor about his wife’s good health, when the paper had chronicled her death three weeks be fore. Then he came back to the offic ard had us put his name back on the list. Pity the man who has not an “old home town” to .be interested in. The heartstrings must be attached some where, and the local paper is indis pensable, as the broad man well knows. OASTORIA. Bean the Kind You Have Always Boiigv The suffragists will doubtless-' be delighted with President Elliot’s dec laration of his opinion that women who pay taxes should vote. And from a man of standing, it means a great deal to tneir cause, even though he declares for limited suffrage only. He is in danger, however, of being mob bed by the next Invasion of graie -1 ful suffragettes, and then very likely 1 he will be sorry he spoke. I .A. F.
