The Further Adventures o! Mrs.'Plumpit
Per Kins on Her Trip to Newport.
(By One of the Other Darned Phules.)
Say ! -Mr. Kditur, I neerly dighed a
laffin. Col. Blueberry Sourmash is so
dern mad at whut he kawls mi unwar
ranted attax on the kownti ophishullz
that he sais he's gunter stop his paper,
and mi neckst navbur, Getthare Bow
docks, is tickled, and 'lows if he dident
have to have all his money fer terbacker
and siclv he would subskribe fer The
Miner fer 3 months sure.
Walz Whare I left off Miss Plumpit
Perkins had got to a terribul sidelin
plais in the rode and smashed both hind
wheals: of her waggun. She was sum
diskurridged at this, but ever as a
beakin star in all her trubbelz she" re
membered the tacked that she wuz goin'
tow Nuport. So she got out her acks
once mowr and went to the woods fer
two red fur poals. She brot them and
lade one on each side of the waggun,
when round the bend in the rode behind
her kame two bosses and a buggie with
two men on the seat. One of them wuz
a middle-aged man with a cast in one
eye and a raw smellin' cigar. The uther
wuz jest a plain everyday drunk who
wuz drivin' fer the uther man whose
mind wuz so taken up with bizness that
lie kouldent drive fer his own self.
When they sean the" perdickament that
Miss Perkins wuz in the yung man
stopped his teem and the uther man
hollers out: "Whudjewmeen, maddum,
by obstrucktin' the kownti rode. We're
in a norful hurry, fer we are after the
vaiidul whitch took down the notiss
whitch wuz put upcondemmingthe brig
back yarnder."
Miss Perkins she got riled and she
spoke right up and,sed: "If yew men
spent halt as mutch time in fixin the
rode as yew dew in fillin' yewr sistuins
full of buze, and then tryin' to dry it
out agin bv smokin' yewr insides with
stuff a.hawg wouldent tutch, this plais
would have ben fixed so that my wag
gun wouldent liev broak down. Or if it
had tlie rode would hev ben wide enuff
sost yew kould hev past ennvhow."
At that the uther man he spoke up
and sais: l! Maddum, I will hev yew to
kno that lam one of the kownti ophi
shulzi and that when the men of yewr
navborhood voted me inter orphis they
done their hull duty in the matter. So
git yewr ole leek of a waggun out of the
way and let us pass on our way to cap
ture the miscreunt that defaced a pub
lick sine."
Hear Miss Perkins seen her chants
and she spoke right up and sais: "If
yew tew men will kum and help me lift
the hind ex of this waggun ontew these
poals, I will tell yew whare yew can find
the purson that take the sine."
Sales during this week have been the largest during
the past six months. Why has it been so? It's
the prices.
We want to make next week the largest
week in the history of our business and _
in order to do so, we have reduced every
single solitary piece of merchandise in
our dry goods department.
The uther man sed he was surprised
that she should ask a kownti ophishul
to demeen hisself by work of enny kind.
But the yung drqnk got out of the bug
gie and blocked the wheals with a rock,
and then went and prvd up one side of
the waggun at a time, and Miss Perkins
put the poles uuder the hind ex and
then he helped her lift the forward end
of the poals and tie them to the waggun
seet with some balin' wire. And awl
the while they ware uther
man kept skowlin' at them and tellin'
them to hurry up. *-
So Miss Perkins thanked the yung
drung and klimbed intew her waggun
and druv on, with the wait of the hind
part of her waggun draggin' on thera
two poals. But as the rode wuz terribul
muddy the waggun went most as easy as
a slay. So-ehe druv on as fast as ole Ho w
itzer could walk fer half a myle, till she
kum to a plais wide enuff in the rode
sost she could tern out, whitch she did.
And as the teem got up alongside hern
the ophishul hollers: ''You will remem
ber that yew promised if we would help
yew with yewr waggun yew would tell us
who tore down that sine."
"Sho!"sais Miss Perkins, "what a
memory yew hev got. Yew remember
that yew helped me a'oowt this 'ere
waggun, and I wuz forgetting but what
this yung man and me did it all our own
selves. But turn about is phair play. I
took the sine down my own self."
Then the ophisnul spoke up and sais:
"Maddum, I'm horror struck that yew—
a common persun—should hev the aw
dasserty to take down a sine condem
ming a brig, and that sine put up by a
nophishul of this kownti! Whatreasun
kan yew give fer such nefayrious con
Miss Perkins was putty badly sbaired,
but she kot her breath and sais: "Why,
I did not mean enny harm, mistur. I
jest went in the woods and got a poal
and fixed the brig so it was safe, and
then I went and took dbwn the sine
'cause it was misleeding."
"Misleeding!" sais the ophishul, "I
should like to kno who made yew a juge
of the ophishul ax of this kownti ! Yew
go rite strait back and put that notiss
up agin, and let this be a lessun to yew
that when a brig is condemmed by a
kownti ophishul it kan only be uncon
demmed by the same ophishul. If I
wuzent so ankshus to get to Nupoit
koz my bottel hez guv out I would stay
and see that yew put up that sine agin
my own self." Sain'this he druv on
and left Miss Perkins to her own self.
Seein' that it wuz ownly abowt a myle
and a half or two myles back to the brig
Miss Perkins made up her mind that
she neaded the exurcize ennyhow. So
she hitched ole Howitzer to a tree and
walked back to the brig ai{J pn t up the
