i There wts a chap on the boat who
lived at Jackson, Miss., and he was tell
ing us many anecdotes regarding the
aegro population. Among others, he
bad a friend who one day asked of an
'Well, Colonel; what particular ossi
fication has predominated over the
mmifications of late?"
The old man gave a pull at his hat
with one hand, and scratched his head
with the other, and answered:
"Wall, sah. I reckons dat was hira
gwlne down do road a few miuits ago
on top of a mewl!"
There was a passenger from Rhode
Island who was greatly amused by these
Anecdotes, and two or three times
Afterward I caught him hunting in a
dictionary for big words and stringing
them together. When we arrived at
Natchez ne was all. loaded up. A lot
of us went up to see the town, and as
five gained the crest of the long and
dusty hill we met a colored woman on
her way down. Here was the chance
the smart Aleck had been waiting for,
and he halted her and demanded:
"Madam, have you systcmized the
disability of the precocious influenza
He was bowing and smiling, and she
looked thunder-struck. After a minute
"What's dat you remark?"
"I percolated the interrogation as to
whether you had ambuscaded the gi
gantic verbosity," he continued.
"No, sah, I hasn't," she said as she
removed the basket from .her head,
"but Ize gwinc to right away!"
- With, that she brought him a clip
with her hand on the ear, and followed
it up by a butt in the back thatsprawled
him into the dust and left him gasping
like a fish.
"If de verboshity wants enno mo' he
can foller me down to de levee!" she
remarked as she walked off; but he
didn't. He was dust from head to foot,
bis humorous nature had evaporated,
and he got back to the boat to keep his
berth for the next eight hours. The
negro is an odd coon at times, but there
are other times when the "gigantic
verbosity" doesn't hit his fuuny-bono
within a rod. Detroit Free Press.
