A Thrilling and Exiiting Story Wbich All People .Must Read. TRUTH IS STRANGER THAN FICTION What Was Brought by the Morning Mail aad How Thing Were Settled in the Postoftice To-tlay. For a plain, mild mannered man Colo nel Albright does not take a back seat for any person in the whole congressional district. With tears in his eyes he called at this oftlce to-day and related an alleged expe rience which beats anything and every thing ever told in there columns or with these type. He says that when the 9 o'clock mail dime in he opened the mail bags himself. Jack, he says, was selling some seven cent stamps and he proposed to attend to the mail. Imagine his surprise as he opened the sack or pouch, as he calls it, to see a boa constructor or constrictor, we have not learned which, which was 40 feet long and eight inches in circumference It was quietly eating a package of Greens boro Records and had just swallowed 43 News and Observers. It could talk and told him that it drew the line on State Chronicles, because it could not digest farmer joe's rickety paster and cutter. The colonel, in much agitation and evident alarm, brought the snake to this office, where it can now be seen for the usual price of admission 10 cents. The colonel says that in all his expe rience this is the largest snake he ever saw. Colonel Rowland and Captain Whitted were called this morning, and they viewed the reptile in open mouthed astonish ment. They both seemed to want to say that it was small but they could not speak.

How the Old Man Had a Gloss Put on Him. A New Artist Does Xot Care for Ex penses or Brushes. PEOPLE ARE STRICKEN VERY DUMB Itut the Polish Goes and In These Hard Alliance Times No Alan Should Regret It at All. The Old Man once in a while puts on a little style. Not as much style as Colo nel Massey might put on, but at least as much as he does put on. Accordingly the other day we pro posed to the Old Woman that we should get from a closet in the Fairbrother man sion a pair of shoes, and that we would wear them. The shoes have been laid away for some months, and the foot prints of time were in them. Of course it was natural that the foot-prints of something would be in them but any way, Colonel Delia, a rare and radiant maiden, was asked to polish them. And she did. Of course she did. We wore 'em down town. Colonel Postley said that it was the first time he ever saw ua with our boots blackened, and while we had made a mistake in the brand of blacking, the shoes or boots looked good, plenty good enough. Colonel Michaels said that he daily sold a better grade of blacking, but then that would do. Colonel C. C. Taylor said that when he sold the stuff he supposed it was for a stove, but if we wanted to polish our shoes with Rising Sun he supposed It was none of his business. Few people can imagine the humilia tion we felt when we ascertained that we had had our shoes polished with stove blacking. And those of our readers who notice that in these days we are going bare footed cannot blame us, even if the frost does bite our feet.
