In His New Vocation—
He’s a Hustler
That our old friend nnd fellow
townsman, 13. F. Sharis, is in the
fancy live stock business for fair
down on his Missouri ranch was
made evident this week when he
1 lacked down one hundred samleons
in payment for one of L. 11. llowe's
top notch animals to head his herd
c* Polled Angus tattle.
It would seem » long jump from
the Interior of a print shop to the
managership of a stock farm, but it
seems that E, F. was able to clear
the abyss without even so much
as sweating a hair.
We propose to exact from him a
promise that our Thanksgiving table
next fall bo supplied from liis pen
of small plea turkeys; that a couple
dozen double leaded eggs layed by
bis great primmer floe k of 2 line
pica bens with gothic shaped ear
lobes and wattbs and fine 6-polnt
conibs be forwarded to us forth
with. And as i sweetener we would
bo forced to r-.ept a few slabs <..l
side meat item hip pica slugged pen
of antique eared porkers. Here’s
success to you, Sharts.—W. C. Nor

you and me, sir, no stomach ain’t
going to stand nine doughnuts.’
