Why the Woodmen picnic at Emmet last Thursday. It rained but we did not care, so long as a dozen or so young lad ies tried to get under our umbre lla to keep dry. I have read in the good book where it rained down bread, but I never heard of it raining down chicken pies and other good ! things to eat, as it did on this occasion. | Now my stay-a-way friends if 'you area “Thomas” or “from Missouri” you might doubt this, never the less it is a fact. It rained out all previous miracles. The first shower covered the ta bles with all kinds of good things to eat, while the second shower covered the ground with water melons and cantelopes. The fishes and loaves are back numbers when it comes to a Woodman picnic. The program for the day was cut short, by occasional showers of rain, which was a great di sappointment to the large crowd that had gathered about the beau tiful grounds at the school house in anticipation of hearing Sov. G. R. Haynie’s dramatic express ! ion’s on Woodcraft, andjthe beau tiful renditions of Misses Christ lopher and Warren. The noblest work on earth in which man may exert his energ ies is that broad field where in ’ the foundation for the comfort, : j peace, and happiness of the dis tressed are laid broad and deep, j Does woodcrafs offer that field?! If so it should enlist the synpa thies and gain the esteem of our; best citizens There are very few eligible to membership in our order who; have not a mother, a sister, a wife or a daughter looking to them for support and protection. You old Rip Van Winkles should j wake up and provide for your loved ones. You have slept long enough. Shoulder your axe and go with us to the fort st and help roll in a few logs. If you live in the city make it a poiu: to me ander out into God’s country and become inoculated with the new j life the visit will give you. Study i the trees; pick a wild dower or; two, and exult in its undefiled purity fringed with the glittering j glory of its Maker. Try a few Woodmen dinnew, they will take the slack out of your trousers! and put you at peace with your! fellow man. An outing nowand then is good for man or beast. Rubbing against our neighbors will brighten and take that selfish edge off of us. You may comfort, yourself with the sweet delusion that there will be plenty of time 1 for you to make this preparation i in the indefinite future. How many have made this mistake?1 Now wake np; ask Sov. John H Moore or Sov. .Too Hood if they have an -'.pplk-iW card in their pockets for you to sign.

We spent several hours in Pres cott and while there we were ac compained by Sheriff Hood' through the county jail and ex amined the place where the pris oners escaped. Some people seem to think that Mr. Hood is responsible for that, but friends, ! you are badly mistaken for Mr. Hood has never been supplied with the keys which belong to the jail. There has never been a sheriff in the county who has spent as much money of their own in trying to capture prison ers as Mr. Hood. He gets them and puts them in the jail, but the law noes not require him to stay there and guard them. Make the jail safe and they would stay! there till they are took out. This thing should be attended too and not blame the sherig any more. We have been in Nevada county every since it was made a county 1 and we do love the name and its offices.

As no one has ever written f rom this place, I thought I would try and write a line or two. We are having lots of rain of late, which will sure make the corn, I dont know about the cot ton, but we have as good a pros pects for a crop as we ever had. This community is well blessed up to this time, no sickness in the neighborhood, and as fitie a crops as we ever had. There is a singing school being taught at this place by Prof., J. A. Fincher. We have a good school and he says as good a elates as he ever taught. We ars talking of having a picnic on Saturday be fore the 4th Sunday, as that is the last of the school. If so I will write again and let you know. I think though we will be sure to have it, as this community never has had any thing of the kind. Miss Willie Lightfoot left today for Texarkana, where she will spend a few days. Uncle Joe Baird is still down with paralysis. I will have to quit and cut a water melon but will come again and tell you more of our picnic. Lazy Ned. Old Chronic Sores.

(In the big building) s DOG SPOILS A ROMANCE Rogers believes that if It had not been for the dog he would have fallen iif love with the girl. Now he hates the dog and almost bates the girl. He never met the girl, or the dog, for that matter, until one recent Sun day, and he Is not eager to meet either of them again. He had gone to call on a friend in One Hundred and Twelfth streets one Sunday afternoon, and there met the girl. She was charming. Rogers thought he never had seen a prettier girl in his life. And her manner was in keeping with her beauty. Altogether Rogers spent a most delightful evening, and when the party broke up his cup of happi ness was filled when she smilingly accepted his offer to escort her home. When they left the bouse Rogers of fered to lead the dog—a little, stumpy tailed, rattle-brained terrier. The trouble began when they tried to board a car. The conductor snarled at him that dogs were not allowed on the cars. The rule Is all right, h*»t Rog ers had never heard of it before, that being his first outing with a dog. The way the passengers smiled when the conductor announced the rule in that kindly, gracious manner that conduc tors have and the realization that he wore a sickly smile as they got oil the car, weren’t calculated to make Rogers start off In an entirely amiable frame of mind. The girl lived In the Fifties, and there was nothing to do but walk. Rogers promptly pretended he didn’t mind at all, and chatted gayly along with her, dragging the dog by the chain. He wished several times the dog would get caught in something, so he could have an excuse for pulling Its head off. The animal began to make trouble at once. If Rogers let him have plenty of chain It got right un der the feet of pepple passing by. if he shortened the attain and held the dog up close, K got under Rogers’ feet and tripped him up. Sometimes it walked around on the girl's side and tripped her up. She would laugh and call him endeaiing little names, and ask Rogers If he wasn’t Just too cun ning for anythfog. Rogers said yds. but he would have ground his heel Into the little beast’s neck had he uie council. This sort of thing kept up praetl cally all the way, the girl talking sweetly and unconsciously, and Rogers fairly bubbling over with rage. At a saloon corner almost wtthla sight of her home the procession passed a knot of loafers gathered round a lamppost and a big policeman swing ing his stick on the edge of the pave ment. They had Just passed the po liceman when Rogers felt a violent tug on the dog chain. He looked around, to see the policeman's lap all wrapped up with entanglements ol i chain, while the dog was running round and round In a gradually dm creasing clrole, snapping at the fM policeman's legs. The blueeoat tried to wrench himself free, but the hard er he struggled the more firmly he be came entangled. The little beast finally got between his legs, the chair was twitched outrof Roger’s hand, and the policeman hit the pavement with 8 crash, his helmet, his stick and tht dog being lost Onder the folds of htf blue cost. The dog was shrieking and yelping In pain, but the policeman was totally unable to rlae because of the firm manner in which his legs were tied. The girl was too frightened tc speak. The loafers on the eornei shouted with laughter, and a big crowd gathered around to see the fun. The npshot of the affair waa that Rogers had to got down on bis knee* and wrsstls with the knotted and tan glad chain around the policeman's lap while ha Bat up and swore, the dog yelped, «he crowd jweand and the girl tooted oa and spad teem Rogert Washed rod tugged until his face wai bed as a ssovs and his sollar had tpro trod* He many waged to i’MTOM Ml Main HMt Jhrk the dog Mwn undo* Me pottos man's togs and mem aa gwm ltt>h ro mm May "tie. mti afetd edjaO toy dags to* to d friend. “1 lending one on 1 don’t rod to M.hMar.”—N.
