FiKiiKiiMAN'ri Luck. W. B. Crumor,
Peter Sailor, Abe und Hod Hilton, tho
"Jonulu" not of Holy Writ, but thoir
prototypes of Bluden, resolved that thoy
would "a fishing go" and it tho famous
Republican river did not willingly do so
they would forcibly rauko her yiold up
the hidden secrets of tho uqua puru
which gontly flows to tho bosom of tho
son via that channel. Thoy thon hooked
up thoir steeilB, and tilled tho wagon
with tempting bait, chuckod thoir fish
hooks into their breeches' pockets and
hied themselves to the Republican, ar
riving thero early in tbo morning. They
countod throo, und with an "evorv bodv
f ioh" all hooks dropped into the living
waters, and that is all they did do. They
"set" upon tho bunk and nnglod waiting
pntiontly for n bite, but failed to get any
thing but a bito of broad. Tho air was
livid with llsh hooks, but tho littlo fish
wero not "suckorB" nor- even "chumps,,
und did not roadily catch on. Aftor sit
ting thoro seven hours without getting
up with tho usual luck, thoy pullod their
hooks, just us a strangor camo by, and
thoy wero bare (tho hooks) and that was
tho woy thoy woro from tho llrst; huv
ing been so eager to llsh that thoy hud
forgotton to put thoir wagon load of bult
on the hooks, und thoy novor caught on
when tho fish would jump out of tho
wntor and cuBt a hungry look at the
wugon,-whon finally a "channol cat" of
Btuall dimensions took in tho situation
ho bit for fun, not that ho wanted- to,
und whon he wus pullod out, thoro was
greut excitement, und tho four inuuodi
ntely came to Red Cloud hungry and
tired, with their fish overthoirehouldors
vowing that it wus a mighty llsh, and
that thoy woro greut suckorB. They
took tho fish homo for "food for thought"
as it wus too small to eat.
