like some fun as well as doing work
every day. When Win. Seyboldt was
assisting in dressing the hoes for
himself and Dr. J. F. Brendel, he
thought how nice it would be to cut
off a pigs tail and slip it in the pock
et of Morton Bartlett. who is also
game to the core.
He was successful in his manuev
ers and the barber carried the pig
tail to Plattsmouth with him and
finding the south appendage of the
porker lingering in his pocket when
he went to extract a cigarette..
He then wrapped it up carefully
in a little box. then placed it in a
large shoe box and filled the remaind
er with paper and expressed tee tail
hack to Murray to Mr. Seyboldt,
which cost the jolly farmer 39 cents
including war tax, which he paid,
and on unwrapping the packing,
found that his pigtail had come home
to roost. At the time of this writing
