1 THE HOME OF GUARANTEED
Stuck in the Mud.
William Jonas Urown, the
genial Singer sewing machine
man, had a serious time in Rock
Muffs last week. Ho was driving
along the far-famed summer
road whistling one of his favor
ite airs, when he came to a low,
wet place in the road; in fact,; it
was much lower and wetter than
William Jonas ever expected to
get, into. When tho bronchos
got well started in Mr. Urown
found that there was two feet of
water on top of over two feet of
very soft mud. When the vehicle
and ponies were well in it was
discovered that they could never
wiggle through. He left his frac
tious team stand while he went to
a near-by saw mill to get timbers
to bridge the distance from firm
dirt to I he team and buggy, so
that I hey could be got ten out.
The ponies are high spirited and
will not, stand without hjtching,
but they were there , when Mr.
Urown returned wilh the timbers.
William Jonas then got, back to
the buggy, walked out on I he
tongue, unhitched the fractions
steeds and rode one of them out.
A farmer then hitched his team
on the buggy, and wilh the aid
of the boards William Jonas
Urown was soon on his way, after
about six hours' delav.
