Its a case of too many Johnsons
in one town. There is B. W. John
son and Prune Tohnson. A. T.
Johnson and A. P. Johnson, Prof.
Johnson, and probably several oth
er Johnsons not scheduled in the
census. If they all lived in a row
and each had children and a family
dog it would be a busy community
with probably enough rough rioting
to make Cuba go away back and
In this instance, the blow that
was intended for Bob Johnson fell
on A. J. A. J. got a telegram the
other day to meet the freight train
that night and "get your livestock."
He had been looking for the arriv
al 01 a car 01 cattle that he had on
exhibition at the state fair, and he
naturally supposed they were to ar
rive via the night's freight. Early
in the evening A. J. was observed
to drive up to the stock yard at the
Southern Pacific station and drop
off several sacks of mill feed so as
to have it all in readiness for his
incoming fancy cattle. He looked
well to the stock yard fences, too,
and to the gate to see that all was
snug and safe for his prizewinners
He was on the platform, lull of
expectancy when the train pulled
in. He looked hard, but for the
lite ot him he couldn t see any car
of livestock. He looked again, but
all in vain, ?nd then accosted the
My name's Johnson; I got
telegram from you, and I have come
for my livestock.
"Is-is-is your name A. J. John
son," gasped the conductor, who
by the way, held by a string a little
woolly, abbreviated sooner dog.
Yes, I am A. J. Johnson
where's my livestock?
"There it is, said the conductor
pointing to thewoolydog. "There's
your livestock, but I thought A. J,
Johnson was Bob Johnson, and that
is why I telegraphed."
A. J. is a Presbyterian and one
that doesn' t bet on horse races or
use cuss words. He thought of
the feed he had hauled to the stock
yards and looked contemptuously
at the sooner dog. In his mind he
contrasted the canine with his prize
winning cattle and reflected on the
position of a mayor of a city and a
state senator-elect who had hauled
many sacks of feed to a depot to
feed to a little woolly dog. Being
orthodox, he didn't swear, but he

Esther occurred, and they still are

District Attorney Mcintosh of Se
attle, is fighting the order of the
court which provides for the women
to be deported to Oregon. The be
lief of Mr. Hurt is that the effort of
the district attorney will fail, and
that the order of Judge Frater to
send them prisoners to Oregon will
be carried out. If the latter hap
pens, the women will have their
full libeity as soon as they cross
the line into this state, and will be
free women, unless taken into cus

By adhering to the good old style

Minstrels, who will appear in this
city shortly, have established for
themselves a reputation that any
theatrical manager might well en
vy. For 28 years the visits of
Richard & Prtngle s Famous
Georgia minstrels have been looked
upon as a gala event, always clean,
wholesome and good, their name
has caused the largest theatres to
be filled to overflowing. This sea
son these gentlemen have fairly
eclipsed themselves in organizing a
company of genuine colored ar
tists, called from the ranks of all
the best minstrel people on earth.
Clarence Powell heads the list and
it is proper that he should. The ex
tremely funny comedian has made
more people laugh,, and perhaps
receives the largest salary of any
comedian, white or black, in the
world today. The programme
promised, will be on the old time
minstrel order, the same that has
made minstrelsy so famous in the
past years. Sweet Southern melod
ies, beautiful music, dances and
witticisms make up a programme
that is bound to please and inter
est. The company travel in their
own special Pullman, and number
over forty people. The noonday
parade and evening band concert
will be given as usual. They ap

When . Richards & Pringle's
Famous Georgia Minstrels appear
at the Opera House on Saturday
September 29th. the public will see
the most expensive ;colore4 show
ever organized. If any doubt of the
absolute truthfulness of this state
ment it will be forever dispelled
when the performance is eiven. It
must be confessed now that there
were doubts in the minds of the
management about their being able
to make the giving of so vast and
expensive show with any profit.
And as a matter of fact the business
ordinarily done by other shows
would not have been profitable, but
it was immensely profitable, and
packed houses rule : everywhere.
The program is a lengthy one. and
made up of great variety, The street
parade at noon is a novelty, two
bands in daily parade.
