Few of us give that attention to natural history which we should but when out attention has bee forcibly called to same by the instinct or intelligence of a domestic animal, we should admit our dereliction. Mr. Conrad Gill has a very fine mare which he persists in using as a saddle horse but the other day Mr. Gill having left the mare alone was investigating some other stock, when the mare, ambitious to follow the vocation in life for which she deemed herself best fitted, selected a plow stock from Mr. J. D. Baughman’s store gallery and started home with it. Mr. Gill is not extensively engaged in farming, in fact, he prefers trading. He did not need the plow stock, but as the mare had evinced such a fondness for it he bought it that she might own one all to herself. Unfortunately the mare broke the stock in her efforts to take it home and Mr. Gill will be obliged too have it fixed for her.

Don’t Become Discouraged.  But use Simmons’ Live Purifier (tin box). Many imitations of the original, so be careful and see that it’s “Purifier” and manufactured by the A. C . Simmons Jr., Medicine Co. Sold by R. HAAS, Agent.

A good joke on the editor, for he is responsible for everything in this paper though absent. We have not been  half so personal nor sever as we might have been, vet, even before this paper goes to press the sulfuric  fumes of discontent are making the atmosphere humid, while the earthquake like rumblings of wounded pride and ruffled feelings have made it necessary that the writer purchase a bottle of nerve tonic and stay close. We are unable to tell whether the weather be cloudy of the sky be darkened with the frowns of our angry victims. We repeat that the editor alone is responsible. Would that he were here. Could I be sure that he would return in time I would hurt these grumblers more than I have done but I wot not his coming. I would tell about how some church members hoodwink their brethren, I’d tell about how some people ought to be interviewed by the courts, I’d tell about how this fellow beat the other in a trade, I’d tell about some flirtations I know about, I’d tell how some men talk blue in company and laugh in privacy while their wives are away. I’d tell about how some girls ———–What happened?  Has the Editor come?
