I isli Tails
Uncle Joe dropped In yesterday to!
swap the time oi day with me. He
took a seat in my best chair where
he felt sure that he would miss the
spittoon, whjah he did, as the lino
leum rug Will show. He is not a long
distance witter by any means, and
really should not chew, indoors.
After borrowing a match and aj

fishes and fishermen. He explained
that he had not ketched anything
much so far except a few brim in
his basket, but the signs would be
/right next week for trout and all
other fish, so he said.
I will let him finish the spiel:
‘•Pishin’ is a real art. old boy. Ij
useter fish in Alabama and was i
called the best fisherman in the;
whole state. 1 have fished with Topi
Heflin and several other governors
; and me and him fished 2 weeks with
a vice-president and 7 congressmen
from New York,
“I remember once when We set a
trot line on the Tom Biggy river:
one night, we ketched so many fish!
on it that while we was taking
them off of the hooks and throwing
them in our boat, they filled the
boat so full till it sunk, and we al
most got drowned and the fish all
"I ketched a carp one night that
weighed 104 pounds and when I cut
him open, he had a good sized pig
in his stunrmick that was still alive,
and me and my family bad roast
pig and broiled fish for 2 weks frojn
that ketch. I have made as high as
25 dollars per hour pulling trouts out
of the water,”
“They had some fish in Alabama
that could crawl around in the
woods just like lizards. I watched
two of these fishes onoe come tip
tout of the water and erawl 600
yards to a blackberry patch, and
noe of them would climb up a big
briar loaded with blackberries and
pull It over so’s his partner could
bite the fruit off, and he never
swallowed a single one of them—
just piled ’em up in a pile and di
vided them 1 by 1 when they got
through, and then they walked on
back and jumped Into the water.”
“I ketched 2 eels one Sunday
morning that weighed 55 pounds
each, and they were riot-near grown.
My favorite sport fish was the gar
fish. They had ’em out there with
snouts 6 or 8 feet long. They used
these snouts (that is—the lumber
men did) for cross-cut saws. The
game warden finally made me leave
the state, a* it looked like I was go
ing -to ketch ’em all and ruin the
cpuntryi that’s why 1 moved ou(
litre. Oood-bye. Come to see us some
time after supper."
* Thoughtless Thoughts.
The brewers say that if Unde
Sam will let them make beer that
they can put 2,000,Quo to work
mighty quick. Yes, but what is going
to become of the 3,545,888 bootleg
gers and the 765,000 prohibition of
ficer* and rum-runners that will be
thrown out of Jobs? Answer me
that, Mr, Capone,
Did-Jer ever notice that the men
and women who attend W C. T. U.
lectures are not the persons who
need to be talked to concerning the
terriblene.ss of boose? The way to
get the right bunch out is to pull
off a cock-fight or a dog-fight Jus
before the prohibition speech is t<
be made and then lock the doors.

Eggs are now so cheap they ain't
