Doc. McKeeby, and his organ, are
ow working up a sympathetic feel
ing on the part of the soldier element
in this city and county in order to
cause a fellow-feeling on behalf of his
henchmen. However the wheedling
nolicy'of our very eminent friend will
not avail him much consolation as the
people are onto his vindictive efforts
to. even up old scores. His rapa
eiousness has been properly "dubbed"
bj one of our local contemporaries as
"pusillanimous." We doubt, even
with the aid of his sophistry, that he
ac his organ will be able o make out
case (he used to be a lawyer) that
will not mako the people believe tbat
ho is not just a little punctillious.
A pious old mau of Red Cloud went
to the can the other day to see his
daughter off. Securing her a seat, he
passed out of the car and went around
to tbe car window to say a parting
word. While he was passing out the
daughter left the seat to speak to a
friend, at the same time a grim old
maid took the seat and moved up to
the window. Unaware of the import
ant change, he hurriedly put his bead
up to the window and said: "One
more sweet kiss, pet." In another in
stant the point of a cotton umbrel
la was thrust from the window, fol
lowed by the wrathful injunction:
"Scat, you gray-headed wretch!" He

there is any to spare, we would farther

It was the first time that I ever took
myself to such an entertainment, and
it was aw full v aniusin' to me as well

I'll tell you how it was plade.
There was a lot of fellers dressed up
for runnin'. There was 2 sets, one
set done the hittin' and the other set
done the chasm' the ball. There was
a feller called a pitcher and a nother
called a ketcher. The pitcher fired
the ball at the ketcher and it was the
business of the feller that held a
taperin' club by the little end, to hit
the bali and nok it. If be didn't nok
it when he tried 2, a feller called um
pire, would sa ::onc strike," and if the
ball was not a fit ball 2 nok he would
sa -'one ball." Then the pitcher
would lik the end of his fingers and
fire the ball at the ketcher so hard
that it went ker-whiz. Then the
umpire would say "2 strikes." Then
the hitter would rub his hands .on
the ground, pound on the home plate
that's what tha called it but tha
didn't eat from it and the nitcher
would put more spit on the ends of
his fingers, roll the ball around in his
hands and then fire it at the ketcher
in a circle. The hitter would blaiz

Sometimes he would sa "fowl" three
or four times consekyewtively in a

the same set the hitters did would sa
"you'r findin' them Shorty." Then
Shorty would hit the ball square be

"batter out." To my mind that was
poor advice, for if he hadn't bat
