As a well dressed young man leisurely

A Democrat Pants for his Pants
On Christmas day the startling infor
mation was forwarded to Mr. Errd Mur
phy of Cedar Creek who wus then in
this city enjoying the luxuries brought
to lear by that day, from one of his fel
low citizens named Vet Draper who was,
judging by the impression the dispatch
would make upon a nervous man, in sore
distress and that the whole city of Cedar
Creek, which had so long harbored him,
had then shunned him and he had been
turned upon the streets that cold Christ
mas day in such a predicament as we will
later relate. He requested Fred to 6end
the sheriff immediately, and he, thinking
that a lion had broke loose in the town
or a band of outlaws had struck it un
awares, started in persuit of Sheriff
Eikenbary, but upon learning that he
was absent from the city, sought the
whereabouts of deputy sheriff Miller,
whom lie informed of the distress of his
friend at C-dar Creek. The deputy then
prepared himself for the worst, attach
ing himself to several bulldog guns, a
couple of pairs of handcuffs, and all
necessaries to face an army of cowboys,
started on his way, thinking of the dan
gers he might encounter before his re
turn nd that he might never return
the unkindest ' thought of all. The
r ad seemed a long and tedious one as
he drove along that cold day while the
wind whistled through his whiskers and
his thoughts were the 6addest
When the deputy arrived at thelonely
burg, the darkness was fast creeping
but with little trouble ho succeeded in
inding the troubled man, who, when
questioned as to the source of his annoy -
-inco, answered that some ouc had stolen
Iu3 (Draper's) pants. Draper is a staunch
demtcrat, and nine people out of every
ten can guess accurately the quality of
the material in democratic pants 6ince
election day.
Cleveland has made many of his fol
lowers wear overalls, and we do not
state that this was the only kind Draper
possessed but we know of many demo
crats in that predicament at present. It
is yet a mystery how he navigated with
out froinjr to bed until the deputy had
tn a
spotted the thief and returned the
heaviest part of his apparel. Whether
he attired himself jo a bed quilt and
started in company witu the aeputy in
search of the thief, we know not, but
the two men, after learning that their
victim was enjoying himself at a ball,
proceeded thence,
Mr. Drbper spotted a pair of pants in
the ball room which he recognized as
his, when he and the official approached
the man who wore a mountain houster
strapped to each hip for protection. The
officer then asked Mr. Draper if the pants
were his and he answered, "They look
like mine , "Uut 1 want you to say
whether tuey belong to you", lue em
barrassed democrat who scarcely knew
what he had said or what he should say,
then replied: "I dont know, they look
like mine." The officer then told him
if he would say that the pants belonged
to him that he would arrest the fellow,
but the deputy was obliged to throw up
the job and return home dissatisfied with
the fruitless attempt to do his duty. All
overalls IcoJc alike, ana we do not con
demn the man for not claiming the pants.
Moral Mark your overalls.

Success of Hallen & Hart In Later
On" at Heuck's.
" Later On," a musical and farce come
dy by II.' Gratton Donnelly, which Hallen
fc Hart produced Sunday afternoon and
evening for the first time in Cincinnati at
Heuck's thearte, achieved a" decided and
well -merited success. Seldom has a mus
ical f:irce by an American author been
fireeted with more laughter and enthus
iasm. Form the time the characters were
thoroughly introduced the fate of the
play was never for a moment in doubt
and the interest first awakened was held
ip firmer and firmer grasp until the final
fall of the curtain.
Fred Hallen and Joe Hart have one of
the strongest musical companies that has
visited Cincinnati. Hallen & Hart have
every reason to be satisfied with the
talents of these people, which were fully
appreciated by the enthusiastic audience
last nijlit Applause was abundant and
encor s numerous. Mr. Hart as
Todd n is well suited to that character.
and bis ability as a comedian was made
manifest. His banjo production in the
last act was a special feature of entertain
ment. Mr. Hallen, as " Jack Plunger,
acted, sanr and daneed most effectually
and Lis little terpsichorean in the last act
was applauded to the echo. Ihecuarm
ing medleys, beautiful marches, the
superb dancing, and nallen and nart as
the drum majors, completely capiureci
the h use.
The company and play have, scored a
triumph, and they will be very snccessiui

A Chance on the Fine Doll
It droops and dies in morning light
The roM that yesterday was whole;
"Ah, whither, on thm wind of night,
la borne the fragrance of my aoulf"
It sinks upon the ocean one
The wind that smote the tender rose;
"Ah, whither has the fragrance flown.
And what shall give my soul repose?"
It breaks upon the rocky shore
The vast, -tumultuous, grieving sea;
"An, never, never, never more
Can lore and peace come back to mei" .
It sobs far up the lonely sky,
It faints in regions of the blest
Fbe endless, bitter human cry
And only God can tell the rest.
