FUNSTON THE FURIOUS.
General Fredrick Funston has been
bloviating again About every so often
this millitary maggot swells up and
blows off at the mouth, thus afford
ing merriment for the nation and great
satisfaction to the exaggerated ego
Funston is in command of the troops
stationed at the Presidia. San Francis
co. The committee of citizens having
in charge the matter of celebrating the
Fourth of July sent Funston a courte
ous note asking him to aid in the cele
bration by parading the troops. The
shoulder-strapped specimen of a swell-
headed simian replied by saying that
he would not parade his men before
"an unwhipped mob."
And that isn't all that Fredrick Fun
ston wouldn't do, either. He wouldn't
open his mouth to give credit to a com
rade who performed the deeds which
Funston received credit for. He pre
ferred to keep his mouth shut then and
profit by the valor of a better man.
He wouldn't dare to measure himself
alongside the Arab who is too much of
a man to betray his host after partak
ing of his bread and salt.
Funjtonis .aclxeap.-screw nonenity
whtf-profited by'the readiness of news
paper . "string fiends" to satisfy the
cravings of the newspaper reading pub
lic by exploiting 'Funston. And after
taking to himself credit for things he
never did, Funston won his shoulder
straps by betraying a man who trusted
him and whose only offence was In
loving liberty well enough to fight for
it. And when Funston was made a
brigadier general, jumping over the
heads of two hundred better men and
soldiers, it swelled his head up so
much he had to use a stepladder to put
on his chapeau.
"Unwhipped mob," indeed! That
"mob" contains a thousand better men
than Fredrick Funston-better men
physically, mentally, morally and
every other way men who would
scorn to profit at the expense of a
comrade and who never would grow so
small as to betray a trust in order to
personally profit thereby.

imbecility are given important com

"Why," he replied, "I owe everything

"And how is that?" we queried.
"Because he made it all for me, and
has been content to take less than one-

shouldn't I be fond of him?" .
And we acknowledged that we could
see no reason why he should not.
