Almost before it is fairly on its feet,
tho local lodge of the Ancient Ordor of
Bald Headed Prevaricators has beenmo
involved in trouble. Feeling runs
high but it is hoped that wiso counsel
may prevail. At tho Inst meeting
Brother Thomas Johnson, who resides
iu O.ik Creek township near Jesse
Carey's, proposed for membership the
name of Dad Kinnoy. Now, tho rules
of this order in relation to elections
are most liberal. Some of the old hide,
bound orders nquiro a unanimous
vote to elect a caudidato but this pro
gressive institution goes to tho other
oxtremo by requiring only two nflirtna
tive votes for loction. Thus if fifty
votes aro cast and there aro forty-eight
black balls tho candidate is elected.
This is easier than running for con
stable. When the lodgo voted upon
Kinney's application tho result of tho
ballot was thirty-seven black balls and
one white and Um applicant was de
clared rejected. Johnsou, stung by
the defeat of his candidate began a
lavage speock in which be abuse
nearlyfovery brother present and end
ed by making a formal demand of the
lodge that tho mh be so changed that
one white ball attould be aufleient to
elect. This was au attempt at innova
tion andlali stood aghast at the daring
of Brother Johnson for they well knew
that Col. Hoover, when installed as
Grand Chief Prevaricator, bad sworn a
solemn oath that, sooner than to allow
tho ancient land marks of tho order to
be monkeyed with, he would stufer his
tongue to be torn out by the roots. Ail
knew that what hu had promised that
he would perform. Tho Grand Chief
Prevaricator arose with stern majesty
of demeanor and, swinging his mighty
arm, launched his gavel full at tho
head of the offending member tho
usual moid of expressing tho chair's
disapproval but his aim was faulty and
instead ofstriking Johnson in tho fore
head, itfmcrely struck his ear, remov
ing that member, and, glancing, passed
through a window from whouco tho
gavel and the ear fell to the ground
outside. Johnsou wilii singular lack
of self control, jumped to his feet and
omitted a yell that was distinctly heard
in Bladen. Just at that timo Dad Kin
ney, who had been listening at tho
keyhole, hearing the frightful exclam
ation of his friend, smashed down tho
door and rushed In looking for trouble.
Ho found it. Tho Grand Chief I'revar
icator iuformed Ezra Bishop, the olll-
cial Bouncer, that tho lodgo had boon
invaded and called upon him to per
form tho duty of his office, Bishop ad
vanced and adzing Kinnoy by tho
whiskers, whirled him twico about his
head and dashed him out of the win
dow into the night air which vas un

noy ' end had come, but merer still
followed him Instead of striking up
on tho ground hu full directly upon tho
back of John Bruunor's Saint Bcrnurd
dog which, attracted by tho smell of
blood, was at that moment consuming
Johnson's ear. The dog was crushed
to a jolly but Kiunuy wns but slightly
stunned and in a few moments arose,
took a chew of tobacco and swore
freely. These stirring events hul their
effect upon the nerves of the members
mnl without furthur business tho lodgo
closed with little of peauo or harmony
prevailing. Brunner threatens suit for
tho value of the dog but cannot tell
whether to sue Kinney, Bishop or tho
