TWO KINDS OF DRUNKS
There are two kinds of drunks
a drunk from imbiding too much
barley corn, which makes a fel
low, a fool for the time laeing,
but leaves him when sober a
good citizen and a gentleman.
The other kind of drunk is
that of some felKAv, who elevat
ed to some position of trusft, be
comes co inflated with his own
self importance that be too is
drunk, drunk from a swelling of
the head and an enlargement of
the "egg." This fellow drunk
all the time is a fool nil 1I12 time,
is n fool all the time. If he hap
pens 10 be serving the public he
is ovet -bearing, bull dozing and
insulting, especially if he knows
his days of preferment are over.
- Such a fellow is to be pitied. He
can't help it. He wauls to pose
as a fellow of importance, a big
fellow, but he, not knowing how,
makes a mess of it, and about
the only way out for him is to
bluster. This, being the only
thing in his cranium ho knows
how to do he does it to p
The public in dealing with such
a fellow always has to run the
risk of -being browheaten, bull
dozed and "insulted." Rut the
thinking man lets him roar, snort
ar.dcavot. His capers aro amus
" 1 iag. No harm ever results, and
soon such fellows are relegated
to tho ranks of the forgotten.
Rut he will never get sober, has
n't got scnsc,enough. A drunk
en man who gels sober recovers
tl.c use of his brains, but the oth
.. er fellow, having no brains, nev
er "sobers up." Poor chap

MOTORING TO THE POORHOUSE
Over the liilh lo (be poorhousc I
am setting a sibling pace:
I've morgaged the lionfe for an

There are others who will help
in the tunning, but I'm holding
my own, you 1-et?
I can see the roof of the county
farm, and I'm going to get there
Of course, I couldn't afford it
There ure very few who can
But the family whined about it,
said I was'nt a man
If I didn't get six cylinders, a ton
neau, some tires and plugs
And go out and Speed on the
highways with the automobile
The girls had to hire a "shuffer,'1
a lantern-jawed son of-gun,
And when sonny goes out for r.
joy ride I'm sorry heliasn't one
For whenever ho-Jviw lamp

I cough up sope morespondulix
to fatten the bloated rich.
Whoopee! Clear -the way, for

All bent in the same direction,
where the road of the scorcher
It's the place of a drunken sailor

I read, with interest all the let
ters I see in your excellent paper
in reference to hog cholera.
Having suffered dreadfully in
property interests, owing to this
terrible disease among my hog?,
I sought out a simple remedy
which has aded Uke a charm for
me, and f send it herein, hoping
some of my brother farmers may
be benefitted thereby. To one
pint of kerosene oil put a half
pint of spiriis of turpentine and
two ounces of gum camphor.
Shake this up together until the
camphor is dissolved, then pour
the mixture over your shattered
corn, Sirring it up so .that some
will get on all of it, then throw
it oat to the hogs.
I found that my hogs would
eat this in preference to corn
without it and I have never had
a case since I commenced this
I had several sick hogs with
cholera when I commenced giv
ing them the above, all but one
recovered in less than a week. I
had a very fine sow sick at the
time and bad given her a dose
by making it into a ball of dough
and shoving it down her throat,
she being too sick to eat. The
next morning I gave my son a
ball of this dough and tojd him
to take oa&of the hands and go
?ii . ' V ""f "l i 1 ?
evening before, nnu if she was
alive to put it down her throat.
He soon came back and said:
"Pa, if you want me to catch
that old sow I'll need more help
than you gave me, for she's wild
as a buck." In a few moments
she enme in a trot and commen
ced feeding with the other hogs.
I have great faith in this sim
ple remedy, and advise brother
farmers to try it. It costs but. a
trifle.? R. A. Penick, Richmond
