The lady of the house being fond of children, told him she moanit to a«k his mother to let her have him. “Don’t, you. think your mother would let me buy you?” she asked. “Ns, ma’am,” answered the lit tle fellow; “you haven’t get money enough.” “How much would it take?” she continued. “Five hundred dollars safd the boy promptly, as if it would settle the mater at once for all. “Oh, well, then,” said the lady, “I think I can ma age it.

Mugville, March 22—John Smith, son of Pocahontas Smith, and old man Jack Brown met on the college green this morning and had a long confab together. While they were taling politics, the oil business and other every day mat ters, Col. Josh Jones, him of the state zouaves, walked up and got into the conversation. “Bovs”, said the colonel, “we are ruint.‘The big fools up at Washing ton have just mint us party men. I 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 fice, but my party is mixed up in this vere oil business too, and I’m afeered to say what I am. But what do you think of McAdoo for president?” he asked. “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. Smith. “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. I thank my shoes and socks that I’m T don’t have to vote for such folks and I’m going to vote for who I please, let the chips fall where they may. Thar’s Coolidge. Has he got oil on his clothes?” Just then, the bullfrogs in the lake rear bv began their noonday song. One ohl bullfrog led and the choir re peated ■ “Coolidge! Coolidge!” “OT!

Jones, while the three stood and lis ter ed to the bull frog song. “Everything is agin us,” said Mr. SpT+b, r> n hr> departed. “Everythin’ is agin us, said Colonel. “I am jnderpendert,” said Mr. Brown, and the three separate^.

One died one day and the other the next, and both had the same disease, pneumonia.” “It does not make any difference about the groundhog seeing his shad ow or not seeing it,” remarked an old time weather prophet, “we are not going to have any settled weather until after Easter, and Easter is fhree weeks off yet.” “What gets away with me,” sala ! | an old fanner, “how so many people j : can get along so well, buy automobiles and have a good time, without work- j ing I have to work hard and I pav 1 cash for every thing I get, yet I cannot loaf any and neither can I buy an automobile. It’s queer to me.” “People are foolish,” said a citizen, “to buy cotto.i and hold it, expecting it to go higher. Some farmers bought their tennants cotton at a certain price and laughed at the tennant thinking they were going to make some big money but cotton has gone down in price and the tennant is lagh ing at the landlord.” “An automobile thief,” said a citi zen the other day, “played” a good •joke on R. L. Davis, Jr. of Raleigh, the young man who was to have spoken here on the tenth, but didn’t. Over in Ash boro some liquor thief stole his car and hauled a lot of whiskev to High Point in it. The odor of linuor was stro*g in the car when found.” “I see a Charlotte paper,” remark ed one of the old citizens, “that there were two day s “away back yonder,” probably TO years or more ago that nearly everything and everybody liked to froze to death. These days were Friday and Saturday. Wonder if some of our real obi citizens remember those two cold days ? It is said chickens froze on their perches and hailing water, when pour ed from a kettle, froze in a moment, and that many cows froze to death.
