The reason I'm a Bntchelor
Said a mull from great bend,
It no mattnr who you marry
Ton can't tell w here she'll end.
It was In the summer of nlntv two
While courting In the west,
I witnessed what I shall not forget
Till I'm laid to rest.
The Albany Mo., Ledger says in speak
ing of boys, "Every boy and young man
in town is spotted, and when vacancies,
occur in offices and other positions of re
sponsibility tliey do not go to those who
hang around public places, nor those
who put in their time smoking cigarettes
nnd apeing the style of dudes and musti
er, but to the lad who has a clean re
tard lor industry, sobriety and honesty;
to one who is auxiou to do all he can
for his employer. A straight, clean,
manly boy never has to hunt very long
lor n job. lie is always wanted." 1
Low true the above is. No Man, no
natter how much of a tippler he may lie
himself or hr-w much he may be addict
ed lo the JiaUt of gambling, if he is in
peed of hired help he will seek to employ
u boy or man, as the case may be, who
is not a frequenteimt the saloon or who
is usually found loirtering his time
away at such place or at more disre
putable places. It is true every boy is
being watched by the neighborhood in
which he livts. Anybody who is desir
ous of hiring a boy is more apt to go to
the Sabduth school for them than they
are to tie saloon. If young boys wish
lo grow up lo be useful and honored
men hi life, the lime to commence is in
youth. Life is full of opportunities for
(rood boys and jirls. If boys could ouly
know bow bad it sounds to hear them
iiseing profane language and how un
gcnllemaflly it is in the presence of ladies
' and older people, they certainly would
abstain from it. It certainly is no mark
of a gentleman. The same rule should
hold good with the young boys who are
just blooming into womanhood. It;
is not an uncommon thing to hear,
not only young ladies who go into soci
ety (and this article is not confined to this
. neighborhood, but seems to be quite uni
versal every where), but young girls use
ing slang f rases, which to us seems un
becoming to say the least.
The evening wkh long and tiresome,
The piiotoes not sublime
So a game of cards were started
Just to pass away the tiniH.
The player fonr in number were,
The family as you'd suppose,
Will In I and Belinda sat chatting
Ilesldc the kitchen stove.
I'll toll you what Helinda said,
In my trunk I've something strange,
Wc would have a most delightful time
If we only had some range.
I'll make the-range the old woman said,
And started from her chair.
She soon returned w ith a correction rod
And the children ran up stuirs.
llellnda then got out her pets,
I'll tell you they were atrange;
They in mi e us all climb on our chairs
The old woman on the range.
Several times Belinda held,
Her pets elost to her face,
And each time the old woman screamed
Those things are ont of place.
Belinda then rolled up her snakes
And placed them In her trunk,
While I sllped on my over coal
And out the door did flunk.
Town Hoard Proceed I hits.
