SUSIE TICKMIRE REPLIES
Grand Coteau, La., Jan. 2, 1921.
I have just read the attempt at criti- 1
cism and sarcasm in your paper by
'An Ingrate," and while I did not in
tend to again impose on you, I feel
t you will allow me just space enough
'to make things clear to my dear Cou
lee Croche friend, and I would not so
far fall in etiquette as not to answer
when my friend asks, me to please
- give some reply, 'tis always a pleas
ure to me do so and especially when
it is in self defence.
*When I left home on that memor
able 'Sunday afternoon with my "fliv
ver," or "Tin Jimmy," as 'they choose
to term my car, it was in first class
running order. Now my dear ingrate,
I flatter myself to say that my Eng
lish is as good as yours and perhaps
a little superior under test. I don't
however, boast that my "parley vous"
could compare with yours.
I observe the learned Coulee Cro
che correspondent if he or she will
look over the "attempt," will find In
grate has fallen down on and as well
as composition, but this article is not
written with the intention to belittle
my friend for I know the attempt is
an awful effort, having taken two:
weeks to frame it and I presume most
of that time was taken up in looking
up the learned of Coulee Croche for
such actions and assistance. My
case may be one of mental itch, but, i
thanks, not one of mental depression
or of unsophisicated conceit or gall.
I may have arrived at Coulee Croche
on the rim, but my family heirloom
was in good condition until I reached
the Coulee Croche roads. I have this
to say, I can distance any Creole
pony Coulee 'Croche has, or ever did
have, on any other roads but the
Coulee Croche roads. If my good
Coulee Creche friend can call this a
want a lengthy ",mass of bad Eng
lish worse diction or rhetorical as
sinity in an iattempt to explain," how
Perhaps had I used stronger lan
guage than "bad fix" it might have
been more easily understood by my
Sself-styled "learned friend."
Mr. Savoy's was kind enough to
bring us home and thereby relieve a
weary embaressing situation, and I
am sure if my mental pus cavity was
tapped there would be found more
solid grey matter than would be found
present in that of ay much loved Co1
lee Crohe correspondent.
I wonder if the "good people of
Coulee Croche would" gasp with hor
ror" at any. situation one would be
found in? r leave the situation in
which we were placed to any reason
able person and if they will not agree
that "Sorry but I can do nothing for
you" said out in the cold and rain at
12 o'clock at night is not very dis-.1
couraging and especially- when v-'n
have a right to expect more civil 2nd 1
friendly treatment. 1
Li We could not expect or hope for i
reception by a bnass band, out ih
3 Coulee Croche. Had we been foolish
enough to surmise or hope for any
thnig like a musical reception we
would have looked for an harmonica,
Jews' Harp and accordeon band. We
were not expecting any such welcome
and much less did we expect the send.
off we got after our efforts to' be
pleasing and accomodating.
Had an ounce of gray matter been
added to my. thousand tongues. I
guess I should never have gotten into
the "bd fix" nor have had to suffer
the waste of time which we did, for
we would have kept away from there
even if I am kind hearted and char
Now, it is a shame for you, "In
grate," to belittle my "tin flivver,"
for when we did se'k a.si-t-nce .4-
vere more "flat tires" nd "a w.o
outs" among the Coulee Troche w,.
than I ever heard of or thought
could exist in such a small community
of good God loving people.
No, "Ingrate," we will always be
glad to help you out, but had rather
do so by subscription than by per
sonal attendance, unless ." ~ ant in

Now, "Ingrate," don't write any

stoppage of the sewerage system that
removes waste matter from the body.
It is as necessary that your bowels

house, If you would enjoy good health
