A Little Embarrassed. lie had just entered the editorial sanctum way down from Pokumville. lie wanted to be polite and compli mentary, but* the great editorial presence embarrassed him. Ho tim idly sidled up to to the editor and tried to speak the little piece he had composed: “Mister editor, I—I—I am a con stant value of your readable paper.” “Eh?” “Sister Meditor, I am—I—I am a readable constant of your valued i paper.” “Eh?” “I—I am a paper valuable of your readable constant.” “Eh?” “I am a valuable reader of your constant paper, begosh.” “There must bo some mistake, Mr. Smith, somewhere. You are three years behind in your subscription. Nothing very valuable to our con stant paper in that.”—Tid Bits. Rain on a small spot on the corner of Forsythe and "Watkins streets has been falling ten hours, though the day is hot and the sky clear, says a dispatch to the Louis ville Times from Atlanta, Georgia. The News gives this account: “In front ot the house No. 020 Forsythe street, occupied by Mr. John Phillips, rain was seen falling in minute drops. It made an impres sion on the surface of the ground, and by putting down a sheet of paper the pattering of the rain could be distinctly heard. The falling rain was first discovered by Mr. Phillips’ neighbor, Mrs. Leo. about 0 o’clock Thursday night. At 11 o’clock yesterday morning the water continued falling. A large crowd witnessed the unsolved mystery and was amazed upon viewing the spec tacle. The distance within which the rain fell is about two feet in diameter. At noon the rain ceased falling, which is supposed to haye been caused from the heat of the | sun upon the earth absorbing the water as it fell. Last night the spray again came down. Negroes in the locality are going wild over the phenomenon. Think of paying a great big r iron dollar for a gallon of strawberries! Yet strawberries grow splendidly here, if given a c hance. Back in the oast they are being retailed right now in the cities for fifteen to twenty cents a gallon. Cherries are shipped here from some foreign seaport and sold for :i0 to 115 cents a pound. Think of it! Cherries sold by the pound in a country where cherries would grow if anybody would plant them. Raspberries are fold for 25 cents a quart, or $1 (half a day’s wages) per gallon, within plain sight of ! mountain sides covered thickly with | raspberry bushes which nature I plants. Plums will presently bo sold for j about 25 to 40 cents a pound in a country where nature proves that ! plums would grow well, by growing plenty of wild ones. Pueblo hasn’t even enough gar deners to supply the local market with lettuce—the easiest stuff grown in all creation. Next fall we will be sending to ! Michigan for apples, and pay five j cents a pound for them after tho . middle men have have had their say. A little later we will be iiuporlii. ! hay from Kansas, and pay a cent a j pound.—Pueblo Cliicflaiu.
