were tears of joy I

Thu beautiful glow of dawn was in the
heal t of Iteiilien Pullaway.,
Thu leading editorial in Thu llla.er that
week was a corker. "This city," it said,
"has been visited by an unprincipled scoun
drel of the name of Horatio Kldergroove;
he has green whiskers mid only ouu eye,
which is in thu middle of his forehead; he
has a trunk like an elephant mid tusks a
foot long. Ui Is 11 reproach to mankind; a
hyena who lives on thu bones of dead men;
11 ghoul, a vampire, a serpent; hu would
play checkers on thu colllu of his mother
mid rob 11 ghost of Its shroud."
Thero was 11 column mid 11 half of this
sort of literature, mid when it was written
the editor felt refreshed and young once
more. All thu accumulated bilu of years
mid years had Mown into the article.
"Thu beauty of It Is," said thu editor to
tho foreman, "that slncu thero is 110 such a
man ns Horatio Kldergroove, with his green
whiskers and single eye, nobody can pos
slbly bo offended."
"True enough," responded tho foreman,
with n shoroless smile.
In thu iiilet, dreamr dusk of n summer
evening 11 wayworn stranger journeyed
into Echo City; lie had green whiskers mid
but one eye, which was In thu center of his
forehead; hu hnd 11 trunk liko nn elephant
mid tusks 11 foot long.
Ills II rst act was to purchase n copy of
Thu Hlazer, and his wrath mny bo better
imagined than described when ho read tho
leading editorial. Hu immediately went
to Tho HIazcr ofllco and sat on Houben
Pullaway and made him (Houben) eat a
thrcu pound can of green Ink mid n barrel
of gluo mid 11 towel; and then hu poured
coal oil on Heiibeu's hair nnd set tiro to it;
nnd ho ted Iteiiben into 11 stop cylinder
press with 11 folder attached, so that when
tbo unfortunate man emerged ho was
folded ready for mulling.
Then the stranger went downtown mid
addressed a meeting of citi.cus.
On tho following day all tho merchants
of Echo City called at Tho Dla.er ofllcj
nnd ordered their "ads" out mid canceled
their orders for Job work.
"You should bo ashamed of yourself,"
said tho mayor; "Mr. Horatio Kldergroove,
whom you so violently abused in your
scurrilous paper, is mi eastern capitalist,
who came here to establish seven packing
houses, employing b00,000 men. Ho has
now gono away in disgust."
"And so his name was really Horatio
Eldergroovor" groaned tho heartbroken
editor; "mid hu had green whiskers and
ono eyu and 11 trunk and tusks it foot long.
