Unearthed a Skeleton.
Election day was filled with many in cidents that would merit publication. But while we failed to "catch on' to the many funny and unique positions taken in regard to the result of the election, we did learn of a sensational story that comes to us from pood authority. At lletts school house, a goodly num ber of the boys had gathered, and late in the afternoon, by an invitation ex tended by Mr. Dan ('outs, repaired to his residence to assist in the extermina tion of a poor cow, that had lived out its days of usefulness, and being sick unto death, its owner decided to end its misery. After the death sentence had been properly executed, they prepared to bury her in good style, and for this purpose choose a convenient spot about sixty rods from the house. Arriving at the appointed spot, Bill Butts was appointed sexton and he pre pared to delve. After digging some three feet the spade struck a substance foreign to the soil, and upon examina tion discovered that a skeleton had been unearthed, and the skull had been sev ered from the trunk by the grave dig gers spade. Butts refused to continue the work, his nerve having almost de serted him. The skull was closely examined, and we learn that a large hole was found on one side of the skull giving evidence of being caused by some blunt instrument. This has given rise to the report that there were, in years gone by, some char acters who bore not an enviable reputa tion, were located in that community, and although the remains thus found give evidence of foul play, yet it has not as yet been proven whether they are the bones of a white man or an Indian.

Such little errors as that appear ing over a man's signature will natural ly make him feel somewhat small. Twin Lakes and Ilibbard ball teams played a return game Sunday afternoon. The recent rains brought a number of "frogs" for the "Mud Hens" and the "Clifton twirler" got the worst of it again, although he tried to kill one of the Mud Hens by hitting him in the head with the ball. The old sign of a cold winter has clothed the Mud Hens with so many feathers and "frogs" have been so plentiful that it takes more than one assault like that to have any effect this year. J. y. Nichols had a husking bee at his place last week. Everyone in the vicinity was there and the fun was fast and furious until in looking over the corn 'John missed two sacks. Now everyone knows that no one in the coun ty appreciates a joke more thoroughly than John Nichols, but he thought that even if it was a joke the absense of those two sacks should be accounted for in some way. Many theories were ad vanced in explanation but none seemed to cover the ground exactly and John still believes that someone smoked good cigars at the expense of his corn crib A joke is a joke, but when John makes up his mind to discover anything and sets out in the detective business he is a whole Pinkerton organization in him self, and after election he will probably get his detective ability into play, and if the trail is not too faint, some practi cal joker may get a dose of his own medicine. It isn't so much the loss of the corn that worries John, as it is the thought that any joker should forget that he liked a cigar as well as anyone, especially when his corn paid for it. 'Cyclone."
