was only a parasol, that had escaped from

had a rope attached when Joe captured
it. Joe was much pleased with his prize
and tied it to the fence till he should go
home in the eveniug ; before going home
he went to get his captive, but alas it had
escaped having pulled out a fencepost.
Joe has spent much time in looking for
it and ho looks very sorry about it and
he says if he don't find it by Sunday .night
he is going to give it up for gone.
