TALBOTTON, GA., TUESDAY. MARCH 27,1883.
He Could Sympathize with
Theophilus Wiggleton could ci awl
out through a smaller hole than any
other man in town; I mean by that,
that he coaid shirk responsibility;
and especially creep away from [lay
ing his honest debts. In this latter
respect he was both slippery and
brazen. Here is a case directly to
Homer Harvey was known as
one of the best natured and most
accommodating tailors. He had
entered the name pi Theophilus
Wiggleton in his bi.oks believing
him to be what he would appear to
be, —worth money; and under that
impression he had made for him
two suits of clothes of the finest
cloth. After that he had furnished
him with a third suit, for fear of los
ing what was alreahy duo should he
irritate the man by refusing him
And now llavey wanted his money.
He wanted it very much, Tne bill
amounted to little more than SIOO
and the debtor had many limes
promised that in a very lew days the
money should be forthcoming.
One bright sum tier’s day the tai
lor met this delinquent customer,
and caught him by the sleeve.
Wiggleton, my dear man, can you
let me have the arnouut of my bill
against you this morning?
Ol—ho! ho! It‘s you, my dear
old lellow! How are vou? And be
gave him a hand.grasp that was
warm and hearty. Say ( Harvey,
are you pressed? Do you owe any
body that ought to be paid at
From the look of WiggletouG
eye, as he gave a sidelong glance
from it, the tailor believed, if lie
should own to being in debtor to oth
ers, the Itliow would retort that it
was very unpiiucipalled of him to
press him lor money. No ho an
swered in the negative.
No, he said, I don’t owe; add I
don’t mean 10 ifjl can help it.
Aha!-—good, good! cried Tneopi
lus gladly. It you are owing no
body, of course you don't need
money. At all events you Jo uot
need it one-half so much hs I do; for
lam in debt. But do not worry
Harvey. It shall come some of these
The tailor turned away in disgust
and in partial despair.
The next time he asked the man
for money he would not give him
any such hole through w hich to
The next time came. Harvey
met his man at the hotel b/r.
Ah, Wiggleton! You are just the
man I have beeD wishing to see.
Can you make it convenient to pav
Unit little bill to-day?
My dea-J Harvey, are you really
I am; desperately so!
Mercy! You do not owe anybody
else money, do you!
I do; I owe a large sum!
Aha! Goodj good! gjasping the
tailor’s baud, Now, my dear fel
low', can you sympathize with me.
We’re both in the same box. But
dout let ns fret. We’ll Keep our
shoulder to the wheel— keep your
courage up ; my boy, and well
come out all right. Never fear.
Have a drink.
One Soul Made Happy-
Yes, I always, make a practice of
sending some poor family anew year’s
turkey, he was saying to the grocer,
and shall want an extra one this week.
Yes, I must make at least one soul
Ah ! heaven bless you, called out
a man who had been asking the price
of onions—you are the man who sent
me that turkey last year 1
Is that so? Were you living on
I was; and I was laid up with a
lame foot, and my wife was nearly
dead with the chills.
Well, lam glad to meet you, I
told the coachman to give the bird to
some deserving person, and Fra glad
you were made happy.
And f shall never forget you, sir.
I put that turkey up at a raffle, raked
in three dollars on him, and outside
of a pint of whisky for my wife, I laid
in enough tobacao to last me six
weeks ! May you never know what it
is to be pdbr.

Not the Right Kind of Butter-
From the Texas Sittings.
J B Baltzlv strolled into hisgro
] eery establishment on Austin ave-
I into, just as that excellent man, Mr
Allen White, was opening a keg of
That looks nice. It’s genuine but
ter, I suppose; noue of your bogus
stuff? queried Baltzly.
Now this was a leading question,
ns the lawyers say. The grocer
wanted to sell some of that stuff to
Bntzly, so he spoke tip and said:
Of course it is butter. Dil you
think it was lard? Don’t you see it
has got t that beautiful golden hue
that can only be found in real but
ter? It makes me think of cows
aud meadows, clover and buttercups,
just to smell it, and the grocer held
some of it on a paddle under the
nose of Baltzly, who asked:
Yes, but is it butter?
Is it butter? Why of course it is
butter. Some people are so sus
picious that they won’t belive but
is butter unless they see it taken out
of the chum thomselves. Man
alive, smell it. Don’t it make you
think you ure rolling about in newly
mown hay? Y r ou can just taste the
buttermilk in it?
YTs, but is it butter?
It was evident to the grocer, who
goes to church, that tho crisis had
arrive 1, Ha ha I either to lie
or loi-e a customer, so he came
right out and told a lio. He said it
was buttei •
Do yo i say it is real butter from
cow’s milK? asked Baltzly,
YVs, replied White.
Then, said the customer, as a sad
smile passed over his t-atures, then
I don’t want it. Cow’s butter is no
longer fashionable, 1 wanted some j
ot that stuff called oleomargarine,
made up of axle grea.--e, second
hand tallow, and mucilage, which
looks like butler, but which really
contains tho organism fa new
kind of tape worm. I don’t say I
like that kind of jelly but was re
quested by a friend who keeps a
boarding house at a railroad station
to ship him a keg of oleomargarine.
Sorry you haven’t the genuine arti
e.le. Allen White gazed after the
retreating form of the lost custom
er, and then he said to himself:
Next time I’ll tell the truth if it
bursts me wide open.
From cause to effect: A bald
headed professor reproving a youth
for the exercise of his fists, said : “We
fight with our heads at this college.”
The youth reflected a moment and
then replied : “Ah, I see, and you
have butted all your hair off.”
A certain scientific paper defines a
malady which it is pleased to term
“writer’s cramp,” We have read the
article, and cannot say that we agree
with our extremely K, C. The only
writei s cramp we ever heard of was
located in the wallet.
The stylographic pen is one of the
necessaries of our modern civilization,
if Hood’s song had been “Dip, dip,
dip,” Instead of “Stitch, stitch, stitch,”
it would have lost its text at the hands
of Mr. Livermore, who lias given his
age this perfection of pen, penholdei,
and case, and ink, all in one, hand
some, and always at hand and ready
for use. The inventor has put some
new improvements into it, and novt
what remains but for every scribe and
letter writer to find it on his desk.
Ink, filler and cleaner, all go with it.
And to crown all, the price has been
reduced to $2. Send that amount to
the sole agent, Mr Louis E Dunlap,
260 Washington St., Boston, Mass.,
and the return mail will bring you this

“Anybody called this morning?”
asked the editor of a country paper

then? We’ve only got two chairs.
