If you don't, look up old man Webster and see what he says about it But we all have one, if not a white it is a black streak. There are streaks of luck, streaks of lightning, a good roast loin of beef used to have a streak of lean and a streak of fat we don't know what it has now while it sells for sixty per at the butcher's or meat market. Any way, we ought to take stock once in a while of ourselves and see what sort of streak runs along our spinal column. Get off far enough, from the big road, find some old pop lar log that we once plaped hide-and-seek along side of, and be sure you are all by your lonesome. Then com mence, forget for the time the other fellow that you are so quick at con demning, also to remark (not In his presence) that his whole family has a black streak and that it will crop out sooner or later. Walt Mason, did you ever hear of him? He tells of a blue streak. It was In Farmer Brown's pasture. He had no sooner crossed the pasture fence than he saw Brown's big white-face bull not over 200 yards from him. The bull shook his head and pawed the ground, then it was time for Walt to not only make tracks, but burn the grass under his feet, and before he reached the other side of the pasture he could hear the bull roaring after and could feel his breath on the back of his head; when he did reach that fence he did not stop to go over but went thru and the scratches his hide gofmade it unfit for a tanyard. As soon as be got his bearings he looked first at the hole he had made in the fence and then for the bull. Lo and behold, the bull was on the other sime where he was at the start, still shaking his head, hut it was to shoo the flies away. So that is what Walt calls a blue STREAK. Don't forget the blackberry "crap" Is gone, but persimmons, sweet taters and possums will soon be ripe. 'G. W. mn,i4i,mwftf Crawford, Moore & Co.
