this morning and had a long confab

oil business and other every day mat

zouaves, walked up and got into the
“Bovs”, said the colonel, “we are
ruint.‘The big fools up at Washing

wanted to run for the office of regis
ter of deeds this fall, but I can’t do
it now. My party has got mixed up
in the oil business so bad that I’m
just afeered. to poke my head up.”
“What party do you belong to”
asked John Smith.
“I’m a deep-dead-in-the-wool repub
lican. What party you b’long to?”
said the colonel.
“I am an everlasting and evrlasting
demercrat, hut thar’s no hopes for
me to run for any thing although I
had my head sot on the sheriff’s of

to say what I am. But what do you
think of McAdoo for president?” he
“Why man,” broke in old man
Brown, “there’s no earthly chance for
him. Haint he mixed up in the oil
mess. And didn’t he steal watermel
ons when he was growing up and
was catched with one?”
“Yes”, remarked Col. Jones. Look
at Underwood. He used to play with
nigger children when he was a boy.
I never can make up my mind to vote
for a man that did that.”
“And thars Joe Daniels. He wants
to be president too,” broke in Mr.
“Who is Joe Daniels.” asked the
Colonel, what’s agin him?”
“Why he is the man that prints
the big paper in Raleigh a r d he’s the
one that tried to dry up the ocean
when he was secretarv of Washington.
And that ain’t all,” continued Mr.
Smith. “He used to go to bed without
washing his feet at night.”
“Good Lawd!” spoke Mr. Brown.

“People are foolish,” said a citizen,
“to buy cotto.i and hold it, expecting

their tennants cotton at a certain

thinking they were going to make
some big money but cotton has gone
down in price and the tennant is lagh
