We have heard about ministers
being fond of yellow legged chick

tired of the custom or else he is
simply very tender-hearted.
Ben and his lady were making a
journey to Kendrick not long ago,
by the wav of Wahdcher Gulch, they
had gone as far as the water trough
when Ben spied a pbor little, lone
some, homeless pig, so he got out
and gave chase to it, leaving the
lady with instructions to follow
them as best she could, until he
caught the pig. The pig was a
racer, for Ben did not catch it until
they had reached the Potaltch
Nets l.ongteig came by just then
and told Ben that he must share the
profits with him or he would tell on
Now this pig as you know, was
quite small and Ben evidently came
to the conclusion, that if he were
compelleti to share that pig with
Nels, it would hardly pay him to
bother with the orphan, so he put
the pig in a barn with an opening
in it large enough for the pig to
make good its escape and resumed
the journey. Of course, the pig
was not in the barn when Ben re-1
turned for it and Nels was consider
ably aggravated, so, good people,
