IDoysj ana Co to ! (girls.) The games
were exciting from the time referee
Brown first blew his whistle to the
close of the game. Mound City had the
advantage over our players in weight
and height while our boys' strength lay
in their splendid team work. Our
guards, Arnold and Vantrees featured
the game by their guarding and fast
team work. Our girls, like the boys
excelled in their team work and played
a good game. Thompson and Bullock,
forwards, featured the game. Anna-
belle just couldn't keep from throwing
the ball through the basket. Both the
girls and the boys of Mound City teams
were good losers and we must say that
they were one of the fairest teams that
we have ever had the pleasure of defeating.
Saturday, Dec. 6, both boys and girls
teams left on the noon train for Neva

one oi the tastest teams in the south

slick floor we were defeated the second
time by them.- Nevada says, "You'll
have to hand it to Butler, for they stick
and are stayers. " The game was very
exciting, and the referee allowed but
very little roughness. B. H. S. took
defeat with a smile, being glad to

And it came to pass that there was an exceedingly rich man
who shrieked when he thought of the income tax or any other
And also it came to pass that there was an exceedingly poor
man who had to save up for six months to pay his poll tax.
And lo, Christmas came to them both; for Christmas comes
to all, sparing not the rich nor the poor, the good nor the wicked,
nor the politician that walketh in darkness.
And when the shadow of Christmas was fallen across the rich
man and the poor man they were disturbed. Yea, vearily they
were exceedingly peeved and they said, "GO TO!"
But Christmas would not. And so they arose and went each
to the market-placebo buy presents for the kids.
And when they were come unto the market-place they found
there a shop over against the Star Theater wherein pills and pel
lets were sold, and roots and herbs bartered and nostroms com
pounded for the healing of all human ills, also corns.
And the keeper of this shop, hoping to keep the wolf from the
door, had gathered therein toys of many kinds for the little kid
and for the big kid. Beautiful Parisian ivory toilet sets for your
sister or some one else's sister. Fragrant perfumes, delicious
candies, and such a muchness of assorted this, that and the other
as did make the eyes hang out like loose overcoat buttons.
But across the keeper of this shop there hung a shadow even
deeper than the shadow cast by Christmas across the rich man
and the poor man.
For verily even now the wolf scratcheth at the door.
But lo, even as he scratcheth the soul of the shop-keeper took
courage and he kicketh the wolf in the face and runneth him into
the tall and uncut timber, and proclaimed unto the multitude:
"Mine enemies have gathered themselves about me and stung
me like unto a bumble bee; yea, even like unto a hornet. They
have thrown much mud upon my good name, and still more
But if ye yould know a man ask not his enemies, nor his
friends, but the great multitude who view him from neither stand
point. And the rich man and the poor man did harken unto the voice
of the shop-keeper and did ask of the passers by. "Doth this man
have bargains within?" And they answered, "Yea!"
And the rich man and the poor man did enter and did find it
even as the passers by had said, and did each go on his way re
joicing that the shadow of Christmas no longer fell across him for
verily each felt that of Christmas bargains he had his full portion
and as they went on their way they spake to each passing travel
er, saying: "Go ye to No. 13, east side square, Butler, Mo., for
your Christmas goods."
And so no longer is the growl of the Christmas grouch heard
throughout the land.
