Read the Starkville News John & Jim John and Jim run so fast Jim got W votes from John when he said he’d pass; Most the voters are trying to guess John will go back to Congress. With John running and Jim flying, Jim laughing and John crying: Johnnie run and Jimmie flew, Jimmie beat Johnnie four to two. John on the inside track, Some chance for him to get his old Job back No chance for him to get the new, For Jim will beat him not a few. If John in Congress had stayed Heneyer would have been afraid; Jim has got him up and going, John lias to take it out In blowing. Jim can make a red neck speech, And the boys’ll stick to him like a Give them jokes by the peck, And a few about plowing old beck. And about the oxen he drove his best. And about them getting in the Yellow Jackets’ nest. The Yellow Jackets made a dive To get in ids hair for a hive, Jim raised ids whip and tried-to pop, And yelled at ids oxen to stop, Hut they kept on stinging, Jim ids shirt lie went to flinging. That’s when lie was a farmer or about the sire He was reading law and hauling ties: That’s when Jim lived up In the sticks, He never had been in bad company or poli tics. B. F.
