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 electa new ruler'cvery four years, but the jackass was appointed to notify all that in the years when 1 he 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 themselves and families in bemoaning the fact that thcv were what they were, and also predict ing direful things that would happen just as soon as the new ruler was selected. All 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 Proclamation: We, the bees of the universe, have carefully considered you and your braving, 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 as for us we will keep on gathering honey at the old stand, "We can cispose of the surplus at the WHITE PINE TRADING CO S.' store at Orofino, Idaho.
