Mark Twain** Reason
for Not Asking Loan
Dr. Clarence 0. Rice of New York,
who Introduced Mark Twain to H. H.
Rogers In 1894, when the fortunes of
the writer had failed, and thus got the
American humorist back on his feet
financially, has told of his experiences
with Mark Twain as a patient, says a
writer In the Mentor.
According to Doctor Rice, Mark
Twain was never seriously 111 till the
final Illness. Doctor Rice writes:
“Mark Twain was never 111—Just
colds. I would take his temperature
occasionally, but he generally Insisted
that Is was only a bluff and that the
thermometer was put In his mouth
to keep him from talking. He told
me that old yarn of the patient who
obtained a prescription from his phy
sician and, afler looking at the paper,
asked how much the medicine would
cost. When the doctor told him that
It would cost about $2 the patient re
quested the physician to loan him the
$2. The Indignant doctor finally said:
‘Here are the $2; give me the pre
scription. I want to mnke an altera
tion. I’m scratching out the nerve
tonic; you won’t need ^hat.’ Mark
Twain observed: ‘I have always ad
mired that man. That was a noble
piece of graft. I have thought of try
ing the game on you, but I’ve never
seen the time when I thought you had
the $2.”
Got Her Clock Back
In “My Garden of Memory,” Mrs.
Kate Douglas Wlggin, the famous au
thoress, tells a story of the time when
she was the guest of some friends,
and was kept from sleeping by the
ticking of a clock In her bedroom.
Finally, she had to place the clock
among some blankets in a drawer.
Leaving early next morning, she forgot
to tell^the maid about the clock, writes
Puck In London Tlt-BIts.
Three months afterward, In Ger
many she remembered it. She would
! have cabled, but it seemed bizarre to
say, after an Interval of many months:
“Clock buried in guest room between
blankets in bottom drawer. Impossible
to sleep with it! Forgive!"
Instead, she wrote, nnd by rc-piy
came word from her former hostess
that her new chambermaid had
searched fo- „nd recovered the clock.

’Tho you’re all used to it,
Open your mouth and take this bit!
You’ve stood and ate my grain and hay
But now you’ve some thing to learn
Get over a little! Now stand still!
You’ve something to do 'sides eat
your fill.
Turn 'round, you brute! I don’t
know which
End of you I’d better hitch.
I guess there ain’t no settled rule
By which a fellow can hitch a mule.
Whoa, there Molly, Don’t have a bug!
Just wait ’till I hitch that other tug.
Now perk your ears and we're for
It wouldn’t look nice to have them
Get up! Get up! Say are you dead
You haven’t even wiggled your head.
Come on! Let’s go! What ails you
You’re just as stubborn as a cow.
Why don’t you start ? You old Galoot,
Has all four feet took solid root?
Oh! Here we go and blast your hide,
The faster you go, the faster I ride.
But say, That bit is to guide you by!
A lot I care just to look at your eye.
Hey, Quit that kicking! Ain’t you got
no sense!
There goes the dash-board over the
Gosh! That foot came close to me!
I’ll bet the’re laughing in that school.
Gee, its fierce to drive a mule.
Whoa, Molly! Whoa, Molly! Whoa,
Molly! Whoa!
I could’nt get you started a while ago;
Now, you brute, you’ll stop by heck,
Or I’ll twist your head ’till I break
your neck!
No! No! Molly: Come over this way,
You can never get over that stack of
Well! I figured a mule did have some
But you went thru that barbed wire
Hey, Molly! You better wait a minute;
That creek has got water in it!
I A fellow must be calm and cool,
If hs’s going to break a pesky mule.
Say, you mule. When will you stop ?
i I’m not good for another flip-flop.
I see, in the fracus, we lost a wheel,
I It’s busted up just like I feet
Now listen, mule; plague take your
I’m still a hanging, ’tho I’ve lost
But sooner, or later, you’ll go home,
I’ll bet!
And the folks will find I’m with you
The folks may say, I’m a blasted fool:
But they can’t say, I gave up the mule!

Lee Steskal has purchased a coupe
from Tom Strong.
J. C. Graham is in Omaha this week
purchasing his stock of winter goods
from the wholesale dry goods houses.
J. B. Ryan sold his 320 acres, three
miles northeast of Emmet, to a man
from Clearwater. Guy Beckwith made
the sale.
Will McCaffrey has accepted a posi
tion as traveling salesman for Crane
& Co. His present headquarters is
Grand Island, Nebr.
John Lowry and J. H. Bailey went
to Garfield County on a hunting trip
last Wednesday, the day before the
blizzard. They are probably snowed
in at some ranch house.
Joe McCaffrey and wife left on No
vember 27th for their new home at
Boulder, Col. They will make their
future home with Leo McCaffrey who
is janitor at the University of Colo
rado, at Boulder.
The snow storm hit Emmet hard.
The snow is piled in places four feet
high. And what makes it worse is that
there are some people who do not
clean the snow off their sidewalks.
Tom Strong has purchased from
Herman Janzing, Sr., the McCaffrey
house of ten rooms in Emmet. Tom
has already taken possession and is
going to run a rooming and boarding
house. A place of this kind is badly
needed in Emmet as the old hotel
building is now used as a cold stor
age for wild animal skins.
While Jim Shorthill was working on
the section last Saturday he saw a
large coyote scratching^ in the snow.
Jim ran to the depot for Ward Cos
grove’s high powered rifle. Jim kill
ed the coyote with one shot at an ac
tual measured distance of two hund
red and ten yards. Jim put a bullet
through the coyote’s eye. He says
that is the way he always kills coyotes
by hitting them in the eye.
