cows
(FOR Our Corvoopondonta Only.).
We said last week that our I
third chapter of the hen story I
would be about cows.
When making that announce
we expected to start the cow sto
rv at about the time of the hen- |
story events; but instead we erc-
K oing baek.to an old brlndle
cow by the name of Ull, having
her existence contemporaneous
with the frollicsome dayu of our
boyhood juvenility.
“Old Lill” that’s what we
'called her after she had quit be
ing a heifer, bad two 'qualifica
tion 8 as a eon that made her fa
mous in her day and generation
in all the land round about, and
a third qualification that heat
the other two put together.
Tho one qualification that con -
cerned the narrator of this story
more than all tho others was the
! marvelous ability of said Old Lill
to reach around after a feller
just as the milk pail was at
, the point of effervescence —with
one of her rear-end extremities.
You didn’tthink a cow would
do that, did you?
No, we,’re not going to tell you
hoe that old cow kicked the
stuffin’ out of us and everybody
else—‘cenin’ one frostv morning
when we undertook to milk Old
Lill barefooted at corn shooting
time with fingers sore and some
of them half oraeked off irt
some of the cow’s tit. the .ame
way—
Well, just »* the foam on that
bucket of milk was making it
look like a mrg of 21 per cent.
Old Lill reached a round with
that rear-end extremi’v of hors
aforesaid, and
Well, as we had just recently
been reading the Good Book and
pondering its teaehings and ore
cents, the first thing-we thought
of on regaining our conscious

The story we are here relat
ing of Old Lill is one of actual
fact, and has to do really more
with the cow’s sagacity than
with her ability to kick jour
i block off or to jump over the
j moon —as per Mother Goose’s
rhiming yarn.
Knowing by experience Old
Liil’a failing (luecess, re should
]s«y) in both these directions,
.he said cow lot aforesaid was
stake and riderod, which in the
rail fences of those days was
the last word in fenca building. ,
Andonedny a neighbor said|
to the owner of Old Lill —
“Bro. Konltel, I believe it’s J
Old L'll tliat is eating up my j
cabbage and garden stuff.”
“Impossible,” says dad “Old
Lilt is put. in the lot at night
with the rest of the cows, and
she’s there every morning.’’
"Well, every night some cow
jumps over ray garden fence (it
was a pailing fence), teas what
1 she wants and then jumps nut
■ again, and I believo it’s Old
Lill.”
Tilth a watch was put on Old
Lill She lay peacefully down
with the other cows and pre-j
sumealy went to sleep: and j
about the time tho old town j
i deck (which there wasn’t any)
wa striking the ho”r of mid

garden ate what she wanted, j

the lane, jumped over the cow- 1

That's all of O'd LiH, ’cepin’
