Ita Motto la "Ihe and Let I .We" An Obituary anil b Free Pom, The last issue of The Arizona Kicker con tains the following Interesting items: Can't Do It. We have been offered $25 in cash and a barrel of wild plum vinegar to publish the record of the man who runs the weekly further down the street. While there is no doubt in our mind that he is a bigamist, horse thief, barn burner and anarchist sym pathizer, we know what belongs to decency and we positively refuse the bribe. There Is too much mud throwing among the editors of the west, anyhow. They seem to have forgotten what is due to the position. If one of our doctors kills a patient by astne mistake the rest are always ready to swear him clear. If one of the editorial fraternity makes a trip, the rest are eager to pitch into him. It shouldn't be so. There should be nore of the fraternal spirit more of the pride of profession. Therefore, while we are perfectly satisfied that the bald headed, bow legged, squint eyed old coyote who calls him self tbe editor of the moribund dish rag eleven doors below ought to be in state prison for life, re ore not going to forget what be longs to tbe amenities of editorial Ufa Passed Away. "Injun Joe," as he was Familiarly called, has finally passed in bis checks, although he hung on for a year longer than any one thought he could. He crept into one of the A. & T. stage coaches and surrendered to the grim destroyer. VV e al ways looked upon Joe as half witted, but we 'beg to acknowledge our mistake. In his lost hours he wrote down the fact on a bit of pa per tbat we owed him seven dollars borrowed money, and that bit of paper was left where it- cpuld not help but be seen. The first we j knew of his death was when the coroner 1 brought in the note. We borrowed the money rL .. r. 1 7. .n n u t JnnMl II. we supposed it bad slipped his mind. We shall probably have to pay it, but whether we shall do so before appealing to the law re mains to be seen. Deserving or Patronage. It Is over seven months since the A. & T. coaches were pfct on to connect oar town with tbe outside world. Tbe Kicker has not before mentioned the fact, for the reason tbat no pass was sent to us. If a stage coach or a railroad com pany starts out with tbe idea that it can pad dle its canoe without the aid of the press, the best way is to give them rope. We have been giving the A. & T. lino rope. Tester day it threw up its hands and sent as a beau tiful annual pass. Tbe Kicker now takes pleasure in calling pub lic attention to the fact that the A. & T. Stage Line company, limited, has three roomy and comfortable vehicles running from the post office to Topknot Station, on the U. P. rood, nine miles away. The fare is very low, the drivers safe men, and the speed satisfactory. It is an enterprise which deserves patronage, and we hope the company will have the sup port and good wishes of every citizen of the town. Detroit Free Press. tie Won't Enthuse.

A Very Human Little Boy. Little S , 4 years old, was taken to church one day, and, in the course of the service, it gradually dawned upon him that the attention of the congregation was cen tered, not upon himself, but upon the clergy man, who was unobservant of S . He felt the neglect keenly. He exhibited signs of restlessness, sighed most wearily, and finally attracted the attention of a lady sit ting directly behind him, who leaned over and whispered: "What is the matter, S r "Oh," he replied, ' I can think of so many tilings to do so much better than this."

A Western Lad Who Docs Not Believe In the "Throwing" Principle. It has been and is still believed by some that to break a bronco be must be roped, thrown, beaten, conquered before he can be utilized. I believed so once, but tbe method has always struck me as a dead failure. Were the breaker of as tine intellect as the bronco, in many instances ho might gracefully submit to a reversal of situ ations and allow the bronco to train him, for out of the brains of broncos we may learn wisdom, as well as out of tbe mouths of babes and sucklings. I had a friend once, as brave a man as ever graced a saddle, leveled a Winchester or loved a child, and ho owned a bronco. If he would saddle the animal once or three times a day the pony must bo roped, thrown and blinded on each occasion. My friend said it was the "Dature of the brute." I knew he could not be wantouly un kind to anything-. It never occurred to me that it miglit be education, and that nature had nothing to do with it Several years later the madam and I were camped near an old log road in tbe mountains in the vicinity of a friend's ranch. One morning, as I was about building the fire for coll'se, the ranchman's sou, a lad of IS. catr.ci up the road with a bridle on his arm. He stopped near us and began to whis tle, as oue would for a dog. After ho, had whistled a few times I heard a whinny, and in a few moments the rapid beat of a horse's hoofs broke upon the sweet peaceful ness of tha summer morning. Looking in the di rection of the sound, 1 presently saw a pony coming down the old road ou a keen run. A dappled gray pony, with ears erect and mane flying; his neck was outstretched and his eyes seemed to Hash with exquisite pleas ure; he came leaping on as if moved by thoughts of love, absolutely free, beautiful in form, graceful in his lib erty and Lu every movement. Within a few rods of the lad the reckless gallop resolved itself into a swinging trot until he reached his friend, when he came to a halt and rubbed his nose against the boy's shoulder. The loud whinny was softened and the arched neck pressed against the lad for the expected caress. It is a good twen ty years since that bright morning, and vet the memory of it is as fresh as if I saw it now; I can taste again the very sweetness of the baisam laden air, can see the tender blue mis) that lingered about the distant hills, and see the pony's head resting against the boy's shoulder; aud ii seemed to me then as it does now, that if there had been hands - instead ol hoofs, he would have hugged the boy and would have kissed him on tht) lips, instead of on the hand, had he known how. "Where did you get that horse, Harry?" "Out of 's band." "You lon't mean to say he's a bron co he's too kind and handsome?" "That's what he is." "How long have you owned himf" "About three months." "But how did you break him? Eupposed that they had to be roped and beaten and" "Now, don't you believe a word ol it. I haven't even spoken cross to him; have I, Dick?" The pony corroborated tho state ment beyond cavil. The madam went out and shook hands with the boy and hugged the horse, and I should no have blamed her had she hugged th boy, as I looked down into Ins honest, laughing gray eyes. Patience and its attendant genius, kindness, without any exhibition of man's "dominion," a simple endeavol to bring- himself up to the horse'i standard of intellect, and tho result was two loving friends. That they could not talk Greek, Latin or Eng lish to each othi-r dignilied the situa tion; the understanding between them was quito perfect and beautiful in its eloquence. Forest and Stream. Chevreul and the Photographer. j The late centenarian, JL Chevreul, ' although one of the patrons of photo ; graphy, refused during the greater I part of his long life to have his picture : taken. Not until 18S3, when in his j ninety-seventh year, did he overcome j this antipathy. It happened, as h j wrote to a friond, in this manner: "1 j entered the carriage to go to the insti- tute, when a gentleman in tho poliiesl i manner possible addressed me: 'ilon- sieur Chevreul, you can do me the greatest service.' 1 replied that I was m a great hurry, but he persisted and beggad permission to accompany me in my carriage. I acceded to his re quest, llo had scarcely taken hii place at my side, however, when he said : 'Monsieur Chevreul, you can be my fortune or my ruin. I am a pho tographer.' I trembled, but ho added . The emperor of Brazil (you know Doro Pedro, who is a true savant and who de corated me with tho Order of the Rose), wishes to have your photograph, and if I succeed in obtaining your permis cion, my future is assured.' I could not resist him, and in the name of Dom Pedro accompanied tho photographer to his studio. ' Chicago IleraJd. Only Three. The conversation turned upon a certain gentleman who is not what you may call a brilliant speaker. "lie has only three faults," a friend apologetically remarked: "1, he reads his siiecches; 12, he reads them badly; 8, they are not worth reading." La Caricature, Too Fraternal.
