The mule, he is a funny sight!
He’s made of ears und dynamite;
His heels are full of bricks and springs.
Tornadoes, battering rams, and things;
Ho’a fut us any poisoned put*;
It's just his meanness swells him up;
He’s always scheming ’round to do
The things you most don’t want him to.
The mule, he lives on anything;
He's gut a lovely voice to sing.
And when he lets it loose at noon
It sounds like buzz-saws out of tune;—
He stands around with sleepy o>e
And looks as if he’d like to die.
Hut when there’s any dying done
It ain’t the mule—no. sir. by gum!
Some folks don't treat mules with respect;
Say they ain’t got no intellect;
That may be so, but if you’ve got
To go to heaven on the spot,
And want a wny that doesn't fail.

The mule, he tends to his own biz;
He don’t look loaded, but he is.

Mr. Tom Goodrum had a letter the
other day from his cousin, Mr. Will
Hughes, who is traveling in Texas,
from which The Herald has beer, per
mitted to make the following extract,
viz: "You say it is dull down in Geor
gia; but you don’t know anything about
dull times. 1 have traveled all over
Texas, and as a fair description of
stagnant conditions prevailing here I
will tell you what happened in one of
the larger country towns I visited. A
man dropped deud in front of the post-
office, and it was four days before his
body was discovered. Fact. Honest
to goodness, there are more dead men
here and fewer burials than any coun
try I know.”
The many friends of Mrs. Luther Mc
Koy were much grieved to hear of her
death, which occurred Tuesday at her

lamented in the community of which
she wus so useful a member, and the
sympathy of everyone goes out to the
family in their beVeavement. The
body was brought to Newnan Wednes
day morning, and after funeral services
at the First, Baptist church, conducted
L>y Rev. F. J. Amis and Rev. E. W.
Stone, it was laid to resl in Oak Hill
cemetery. Deceased was the mother
of Mr. E. C. McKoy, of thi« city, who
is himself just recovering from a se
