A Queer Case of Thrift.
The native thrift of the Vermonters
was under discussion and a story was
told that was held to illustrate it per
There was a man in one of the inter
ior Vermont towns who had an old
horse ringboned, spavined, with the
heaves and every other horse ailment
—a mere shadow of a horse. He used
to drive the horse to town every day
and was Jeered by the neighbors for
using such a miserable beast
One day he walked into the store
at the corner. "Where’s your horse,
Jim?” a friend asked.
"Sold him! How much did you

“Who in thunder did you sell that
horse to for a hundred dollars?”

A CLIMATE WORSHIPER.
By James Barton Adama.
Do I like the climate, stranger, in these
mountains? Well, I guess
There ain’t anv other answer to your
question ’ceptin’ "yes”;
An’ it be a-stretchin’ o’ the
honest truth to say
That I wuship it, an’ tell it so a dozen
times a day.
Llssen to my wife a-slngin’, voice as
clear as any bell,
See the spring that's In her action,
drawln’ water at the well;
See them youngsters playin’ yonder an’
a-hollerin’ in glee.
Then switch ’round yer eyes a trifle till
you focus ’em on me.
Jes’ two years ago to-morrer, If my
mem’ry’s got no flaw
Since we clum into the wagon fur to
leave ol’ Arkansaw;
Faces all about the color o’ the yaller
est corn pones.
An’ the ager havin’ shaken all the flesh
off of our bones.
Sca’cely looked like human bein’s, more
like skeletons we were.
Wife a-hackin' with consumption that
was ketchin’ hold o’ her.
An ’the younguns both a-coughin’, me
Got discouraged till I wasn’t wuth a
pinch o’ salt in hell!
Tuk a ranch here in this valley, and
we wondered if the same
Mightn't some day bo our grayeyard as
a wind-up o’ the game;
Slep’ with doors and winde’rs open fur
to let the climate in.
An’ we observed that somethin’ was
a-paddin’ out our skin.
Wife got skittish in her action; kids be
gun to romp and play,
’Stead o’ mopin’ ’round an’ cryin’ an’
complainin’ all the day;
As fur me. I quit my frettin’ an’ begun
to take OVI meat.
An’ ’t’d make a lean hog jealous fur to
see the way I eat!
Do I like the climate, stranger? Likin’
ain’t no proper word.
Fur I wushup it, by jingo! nex’ to wush
ippln’ the Lord,
Fur it’s rid the hull caboodle o’ the
freezing breakbone chills
An* the Arkansaw attachments shape o’
country doctor’s bills.
An’ the lungs my wife's a-usin’; well,
jes’ llssen to her sing:
They’re as sound as ary dollar in their
clear an’ silv’ry ring.
An’ there ain’t a man a-livin’ in this
hull long mountain stretch
That kin flop me in a rassle, any holt
they want to ketch!
