BILL ART'S LETTER.'
It is good for a town man or a city
man to take a day off occasionally
and spend it in the country. It will
give him a fresh start, a new lease
upon life when he gets back to work.
Sometimes it pays doctors bills;
sometimes it awakens sentiment and
emotions long since smothered or
forgotten and makes him feel like
singing' "Oh, would I were a boy
Now is the time of all times to try
it, and if I were a doctor and had a
puny, overworked patient I would
give him a harmless pill and say, quit
your business for a day and go fish

around and pick flowers and listen
to the birds, and if vou pet .1 few

ing is a healthy business. It is the
poor man's medicine. I was rumi
nating about this because I tried it
day before yesterday. Some of my
folks of the masculine gender invited
me to take a stroll with them. They
said it would help me, and my wife
advised me to go. I think she was
tired seeing me mope around looking
like I was half dead and didn't have
a friend in the world, and so I joined
the pedestrians not knowing how far
or where they were going. We
walked the railroad track for about a
mile and then diverged into a strip

around it. They had to go through
that wood they said, and so they
sprung the bottom wire as high as
iney couici ana kindly invited me to
humble myself that I might be exalt
ed on the other side. Right there
my trouble began.
I got down like an elephant and
rolled under the wire barely escaping
the stickers, and then we perambula
ted through half a mile of under.
growth that kept me slipping on the
pinestraw and dodging the bushes.
ana an tne time trying to keep up
with their younger and longer legs
but made no sign. One of them let
a stickery limb flop back in my eye
and set it to bleeding, but still I made
no sign, for I have some of my youth
ful game in me. Bye and bye we
came to the barbed wire fence on the
other side of the wood lot, and I had
to lie down and roll over again like a
i 1 mmm
hundred dollar horse, and that
brought us into a fresh plowed field,
where the corn had just been plant
ed, and by the time I followed them
through that 1 was covered all over
with a sweat of perspiratioa and was
so tired I was afraid to stop for fear
I would not be able to start again, j
After a while we came to a branch I
that flowed down about six feet wide, ,
and four feet deep. My unfeeling
companions took a little running
start and cleared the ditch easily and
just tramped on without looking back
to see what had become of me, but
still I was game. I made for that
ditch with malice aforethought and
caught on the bank and pulled my
wet legs after me with alacrity and
waddled on. I saw one of my chap
erons look back on the sly and then
I began to suspect that they had laid
a nlan to put me through for the ben
efitofmv constitution. In course of
time I had to roll under two more
wire fences and cross Dr. Fulton's
branch, which is just three mi!es
from town by the big road, but a
great deal further the way they took
me. But still 1 was game and made
no sign. I even made bold to talk
admiringly of the scenery, and I
stopped occasionally to pluck the
wild flowers that adorned the glades
and hillsides. I carry around now
with me about 175 pounds ofcorpor-
osity, and my center ol gravity is
some higher up than it used to be
when Mrs. Arp was sweet sixteen,
and I could mount a horse bareback
at a single bound. Oh, I ve seen the
day-yes, I have seen the day that-
Well, its no use bragging for I will
never see it again. Dr. Caulder said
in his beautiful sermon last Sunday
that youth had no memories but
revelled in a thousand hopes. And
age had a thousand memories and
but a single hope. That is so, and I
am living in memories now.
These young bucks kept tolling
me along like I was a cow followine
fodder wagon, and by and by I
heard one of them give a wild Injun
whoop and he started off in a run
crying, snake, snake ! i had a
good cane and paused for an attack
from the reptile but it was nothing
but the rim of an old straw hat that
curled in the path. I am not fond
of snakes, and that alarm kept me on
the lookout, for it is about the time
for them to be slipping around. By
and by we took roundance and start
ed homeward down the creek, and
got to another wire fence. I felt like
sitting down and staying all night,
but the boys looked at me and smil
ed and so I rolled under again and I
was so stifl and tired I could hardly
get down or up.
Still I played game ana kept mv
wild flowers and sweet shrubs for the
little girl at home, and it kept my
spirits up thinking how happy she
would be. We got to a spring that
looked inviting and the boys laid
down and drank in the eood old
way. I was nearly dead for water,
but I said no I did not want any, lor
feared I could never get up if I got
down any more.
When we reached the last fence
the ground was a little descending
and as I rolled under the wire my
corporosity kept on, and liked to
hive rolled into a half buried dead
horse that the train had run over
and tumbled down the bank. It
hocked me like a ghost and stimu
lated my alacrity.
Somehow or other I got home
safely after a seven mile tramp and
and that night I rolled into bed and
wasen't fit for anything next day, for
I was as sore as a foundered mule.
My opinion is that the whole thing was
1 conspiracy and that my wife was
'particeps crimims with one of her
offsprings and his long-legged brother
My further opinion is that there
are more barbed wire fences in that
region than in all the rest of that
country and what Sam Jones and
Bob Patillo put them there for no
body knows, for there isn't an acre of
the land that is worth a continental
dime. It is too poor to keep its liz
Nevertheless the tramp did me
good and loosened up my diaphram.
It was an overdose ol medicine and
my chaperons won t catch me that
way again. I don't believe much in
chaperons, nohow. Sam Jones said
m a tabernacle sermon that they
were no good. "You will see," said
he, "a couple of these married wo
men start out on an excursion up the
river bank with fifteen or twenty
young bucks and buckesses and they
are to chaperon the whole crowd and
see that they behave the mselves
Sometimes they get back before dark
and sometimes they don't. But it's
all right jf they are chaperoned.
Chaperoned. You might just as well
throw a handful of fleas down here
on the floor and then try to catch one
as to watch fifteen or twenty Carters
ville bucks and buckesses on a tramp
up the river."
Well, it's strawberries and cream
now, and green peas and asparagus
and other vegetables coming along,
and if a man has a eood earden and
a good little cow that gives butter
and buttermilk, and a good little bus
iness that keeps him employed and a
good little family to help him and
comfort him, he ought to be content
ed and happy. The pleasures that
cluster around home and the fireside
where love is, aie the best 1 have ev
er found. Of course, we have to in
dulge some things outside, such as
social intercourse with kindred and
friends, and I have thought that as
long as a man took pleasure in mu-'

and look upon beautiful women and

ries and cream he wasent as near

dead as he pretended to be. That
woman business, is a kind of paternal
emotion with me now, and is very
natural. Not long ago I heard Mrs.
Arp asking who that very handsome
gentleman was that she saw on the
on the street. Well, I knew that it
wascnt me, and I thought that she
had a very inquiring mind. That is
natural too, and the only diffrrence is
that I have to exercise my admira
tion more on the sly than she does.
I like to have things calm and se
rene at my house.
These domestic pleasures beat con
gress or a post office, or even a re
ceivership of a railroad. We have to
have these officers and judges and
sheriffs and policemen and revenue
officers and the like just as we have
to have locks on our doors to keep
the rascals out. It is the rascals who
disturb the public tranquility and
keep the people poor. I heard an
old man say that he never had a case
in court in his life, but had been pay
ing some of the courts expenses for
fifty years. That is bad and sad, but
it is a part of the battle of life and we
must fight it.
M. D. Lane, Devereaux, Ga.,
writes : One summer several years
ago while railroading in Mississippi,
I became badly effected with malarial
blood poison that impaired my health
for more than two years. Several of

and nothing seemed to give perma
nent relief until I took six bottles of
