U EDITORIAL BOTES. 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. Bb, dockcy. 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 scatted. Moral Let some otter fellow kiss the old maids. W. C.

SEVENTH Well bois, you are just as mean as you can be, and I'm another, bat that's nothing to do with my visit to what tha called a ball park last week. 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 as a whole lot of other fools. 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.

Sometimes he would sa "fowl" three or four times consekyewtively in a row, and the fellers that belonged to the same set the hitters did would sa "you'r findin' them Shorty." Then Shorty would hit the ball square be tween the ize and it would go soarin' awa out in the field and lite in a fel lers hands and the umpire would sa "batter out." To my mind that was poor advice, for if he hadn't bat ted it out in the field he wouldn't been out and it looked so foolish any how to see the hitters nok the ball rite into tbe hands of the other fellers when there was lots of room where there was no other fellers. Sometimes the umpire would sa a hitter was out, and the hittin' fellers would all say he wasp't. Then tha would huddle 'round the umpire and after a whole lot of wind was wasted the placrs would go bak to wore, and the hitter stayed out just as the um pire said he was. Then the fellers doin' the chaisin' the ball would ask the hitters if tha wanted in umpire made to order, and sa l-0 no, you fel lers ain't kickers." didn't, leave vour paul to home this time," and other tcasin' remarks.

It was a awfully amusin' game, and everybody went home talkin' base ball, and the game was plade over 997 times on the streets the next day. Yours with tbe fever, Al K Lie. PROGRAM.
