Dear New Era:—
'Richard is himself again.’ The
much lamented, and sadly missed?
Spoopeudyke has reappeared on
the scene, and proves to be of the
reptilion species, that remains in
an abnormal condition, until about
June, and then comes forth,to sati*
ate his mow, with whatever he
can lay his claws on. I guess from
tho snapping that ho hns done,
that he is of the snapping turtle
tribe. For says he, “the snapping
time having come,and the snapper
having snapped the question, ac
cording to tho Ians of Snupperdoin,
and tho snappee, with her snap-
judgment, having snapped «t the
snapping; said snappee has no
right to soap at tiie snapper in
such a snappish manner.”Ho seems
proud of the fact that Pandora jilt
ed him. I never knew before that
mush, pine knots and ‘sour grapes’
were such good food for snapping
turtles. He forgot however to
send you the last shake of his po
etic chill, which is sung to the
tune, “Hark from tho tomb.” So
I will be kiaderough to give you
this stanza myself,
When the pretty Pandora, I first did
I thought I’d like to buss her,
But as she's given me the grand G.B.,
I’ll just sail in and cuss her. •
Good-bye Spoopy, when you are
dead and gona, I want your shell to
use in place of my box, which it
seems I can never find.
We are anxiously awaiting the
news from Iiockmart. One of our
young men? went up there Sunday
and evidently on the war-path.
He ciime back in a dilapidated con.
dition, and wo fear that he went
iu search in some chicks that re
cently disappeared here.
Oh! whore did you get that hat?
Pandora would like to ask a cer
tain young Indy, who Madam Ru
mor says is likely to marry Ilay--

The photographer struck our
'.own one day this week. Ho got
bis instrument broken, however,
when be tried to shoot a Theolog
ical Seminary, which ha 1 a Hay
stack on 0110 side, and a chicken-
Coop on the other. Ho had his
gun loaded for bear, but had it
fired, it would have struch a House,
battered a Snow-ball, tore up a
Coop, killed a bull-Finch, and
frightened Peter, James and John
away from the sanctuary. Other
game was spotted, but he drew the
line at fighting a Battle with crows.
Ono of our boys who wants to
be con-Geni-al, asked a girl, Sun
day, to Add herself to his number
of sweethearts, she seemed afraid
that she would be in-Trud-ing,and
did not let the. Add-ill'm continue
Gocd-bye till next week.
Knocked the Ball Game in
Wednesday, some of tho boys
went over to tackle theDouglaaville
Team in a game of ball.
In acceptance of a challenge to
play tho aforesaid game, they went
away confident of winning a great
victory over their opponents, but
tho Douglasville hoys (some of
which are ex-celebrities) refused
to play, and Umpire Cooper culled
the ganio 9 to 0 in favor of Dallas.
The game was to be calle I at.
1 o’clock in order that tho hoys
might got homo before it became
too dark, hut it was destined to be
unplnyed, for when ono o’clock
came, tho Doiiglasvillu boys delay
cd the gaino until four, then 4:05,
and so on till 4.80, when McLain
had the game called, and he and
his men left for homo.
Very much can’t lie said of
Douglasville’s hospitality. They
refused to settle tho hotel hill, and
the Dallas boys are responsible.
I don’t think they did intention
ally. They were “short, and
their credit was no good.
Don’t get blutTud, Douglasville,
but come and play us. We will
return good for evil, and treat you,
“white”, pay your expenses and
beat you playing ball.
