OUR DEVIL'S COIiNEK.
Nine whiskey 'sours
Within two hours
And a cocktail by the way;
A wild old night,
A bar room tight,
And sixty days in the "quay."
CUJGHT AT LAST.
Brownsville's Parson can't get bail,
So he languishes in jail
Satan different bait doth try
For the different kinds of "fry,"'
As you see.
Long ago he cast his line
For this great and good divine
All in vain.
Till a shote for bait he took
Then the Parson bit the hook
THE TRUTHFUL MAN.
Two or three of Sequauhee's most,
promising amateur, prevaricators sat
in the corner store the other day
swapping fish stories until they be
came weary and then the truthful
man took an innings. .
' About the biggest fish I ever
ketched in these yer parts," said he,
"was over on the lenncssee river
nigh two year ago. I was a-fishin'
from a boat an' was about half a
sleep, for I hadn't had nary bite for
two hours, when all of a suddint sun
thin give my line seek a yank that
it come powerful nigh puUin' me out
er the boat. I knowed Pd hitched
onto sun thin' big an' I braced myself
an' hung on ter the line with both
hands. By gum, it was nigh abtui
the hardest work I ever did. Ei'f
vou'll believe it, gentlemen, that yer
lish jest towed me eight miles up the
river afore ho got tired out, an' then
e'ittook me an hour an' a half ter git
liim inter the boat. An' 'twait no
wonder he put up a right smart fight
neither for when I come ter weigh
him he tipped the scales at one hun
dred an' eighty-seven pounds.''
"What kind of a line did you
have?" asked someone. "Jest a com
mon homemade line made it myseif
outer cotton yarn," was the reply.
"Wal," remarked the quiet man,
"if that yer yarn had n't held tcrgcth
er better'n some o' yourn you'd 'a'
lost yer fish."
The truthful man got very red in
lu face and everyone thought he
vas!n)ini? to say something sown,
but he rest mined himself and took a
chew of tobacco about ths size of n
biscuit. Then he arose, stumbled
over his dog which was lying at his
feet, kicked' the animal sixteen feet
and went down to the other end of
the store to price a pair of red suspenders.
1 1' as a woman in ins manner it
stomal an unspeakable olI'eme to
utter an oath or a coarse expression
it. hi.s presence. Hi men never
forgot this ard the general's dismay
niy well be imagined when one
day he came across two privates
hiving a little scrapping match be
side the load, One of the combat-
nts being still sober enough to
jcoffiiize the officer Itll back but
the other turned and stared into
lently at the handsome old man
on his horse. Sergeant ! Herman t
come and put this man in irons"
called the general. And the fellow
shouted: Who in h 1 are you
old mule ear? Gil oil" that horse
and I'll lick you for a 'en ctnt
stami !" It ws too union. Gen
eral Polk turned and (led Philasj
del phi a 1 imes.
It I were asked to express in one
word the most, dominant charachr-
ot General Grant 1 should say loy
alty. He was loyal to his country
loyal to his cause loyal to his fami
ly and loyal to his frb-nd . This
trait was in him so wed develop d
that he could not understand the
lack of it in others. Th re svnv
two class s of men for v. honi he
had the most supreme contempt
and three were ha is ami cowards.
Magnanimity was amiost as strong
a feature iu the character of G uer
al Grant a? loyalty ;id tins was
shown in many little things. Thus
after the sunemle-r at Fori Donald
son he calied General Backner a
sice and said to him: 1 General 1

the fortunes of war have left you;
