Presidential Year Fable
* Once upon a time the lion, tiger, hippopotamus, jackass and elephant assembled themselves together to select a date for a meeting of all the representatives of all the fishes of the sea, birds of the air and beasts of the woods, so that they might se lect a ruler who should serve for a term of four years. At this meeting it was decided not only to elect a new ruler every four years, but the j ickass was appointed to notify all that in the years when the rulers were selected they would not be expected to hustle quite so hard for their daily food; that in these years they were to voluntarily go on half rations and spend the time usually devoted to thèmselves and families in bemoaning the fact that they were what they were, and also predict ing direful things tha would happen just as soon as the new ruler was selected. Ä11 the animals attentively listened to the bray of the jackass except the bees. The bees called a meeting, buzzed the thing over, and then issued the following « % t Proclamation; We, the bees of thi universe, have carefully considered you and your braying, Mr. Jackass and we wish to say that there will be nothing doing for yours truly in the "laying-off" or "half ration" line. We are satisfied that there will be just as much honey in the buckwheat in the years when the rulers are elected as in any other old years and we propose to get it. If you and the rest of the bunch want to grow lean and waste one year in every four why go to it; you certainly have our permission. Growl and bray your heads off if you choose, but us for us we will keep on gathering honey at the old stand, We can cispose of the surplus at the 'WHITE PINE TRADING GO'S.' store at Orofino, Idaho. will buy our summer goods of them where we find an UP-TO-DATE FINE in all assortments of merchandise.
