The Pair of Mules
When a Georgia mule gets mix
ed up with things in general, then
business begins to pick up. This
was tiue list hursday. A certain
business man ol this city sent, up
near Mays\illc nnd had l! c bad ill
to levy on the mules. T he.se mules,
be it said were innocent parties.
.Mr. R. A Wad kins made the levy,
and th': mules, ol’ course, rubiint
td. The mules were carried to
Maysville and held temporarily in
a stable in that city, il developed
that their stay there was tempo

While the Bailiff was the 1 - on

told him. the baililf, that he was

Leaving the mules for a moment,
the baililf made h s way to the
central office. Imnuigiuc his sui
prize, when he was informed that
no one had put in a call for him.
Then Bailift W<l kins smelt a
mouse-- possibly two mice tor he
made haste forthwitn back to the
stade, only to find that those
mules we:cgone. 1 hey went by
wireless. That brought on more
talk. The next legal step was
to swear out a warrant for the man
who had told those mules to leave
town just an ter, if not sooner.
This was done, and Mi. Siig Moi
ris, a well known capialist of thaL
city was placed und:r arrest,
charged with telling the mules to
leave town. Bailiff Engrain of
this place w...; placed on the job,
and he 'cent to Maysville and
brought Mr. Morris to Commerce
on tl.etiown tiain. The tiial was

presiding. The trial judge must
have beliveti that Mr. Morris did
tell those mules to leave town, loi
