Whenever the monotonous

' " , heavily upon us and we desire , a
, . \ " change , we step over into Joe
r' ' ' .J : - )
Geigers fiddle factory , conserva-
; , , " tory of music , shot gun infirmary
. and padlock hospital. Joe always -
I ways gives us the glad hand and
tenders us a chair beside his genial -
ial hearth and there we' si t and
see things that cannot be seen
from any other point of view. A
; ! : man comes in with a debilitated
I ; shot gun on which he wants an
Ii ' operation performed. This gun
was originally a musket and
probably saw service at Fort
. Ticonderoga or at Yorldown.
It afterward becam\ an heirloom
and was handed down in some
, off' family from generation to gener-
ation. At some Point along the
line its six foot barrel was bore
I out smooth and the present shot
gun e\'olved. In the last seventy-
. five years it has been used to
' - 'rte : ' . shoot geese in Canada alligators
: . . ,

in Florida , Indians in Nebraska
and horse thieves in Wyoming.
Old age has marked its stock
with worm holes and its barrel
with rust holes but the owner
can't understand what is the mat- '
ter with it , and wants Joe to
give it a course of treatment and
he takes the case. He works for
hours whittling out a new bar-
rell , or putting on a new flint or
carving out a new stock , and
then when when he charges the
owner fifty cents that individual
gets mad and says that the pa-
tient gun doctor is a sheep in
wolfs clothing and threatens .to
shoot him. About this time a
man comes in with a saw to be
filed. Joe casts his eager eye
along the row of bristling teeth ,
then fastens the blade in the vise
and begins. As he draws the file
gently back and forth , the sweet
strains grow loud and louder ; the
air vibrates with harmony , nature
seems to pulsate with melody ; it
is as though the pearly gates had
beerr thrown wide open and that
mortal ear had suddenly become
attuned to the music of celestial
harps. But alas , into an har-
mony some discord must come.
In there comes a man who tales
down one of Joes fiddles and
without even tuning with the saw
strikes up the. latest plain
quadrille that has become popular -
lar in Rush Bottom And so saw
and fiddle contend for the supre- ,
macy and there comes to the mind
of tM listener that passage of
scripture that refers to weeping
and wailing and gnashing of
teeth Joe Geiger makes he
best violins we have ever seen
but it is so unfair to expect them
to contend with the lamentations
of a saw that is having dental
work done. A genuine Strad-
ivarius would hardly stand the
test. It always happens that at
this point a hundred men call to
subscribe for The Tribune and
we are called to the office to make
LOCAL AND PERSONAL.
