“ Colonel Handy Polk, the real estate
agent, is the most enterprising man iu
Ibis commnuity, is lie not?” inquired
the credulous tourist.
“ Waal,’’ replied Alkali Ike, a promi­
nent citizen, cautiously, “ not to draw
no comparisons. I'll say he’s middlin
enterprisin, or rather used to be, for he
'pears to be sorter Iosin his grip the last
few years. ’’
“ If that is the case,” returned the
tourist, "I wish I might have the pleas­
ure of seeing him ut his best, for, from
his present mo'hods, I should uot call
him at all conservative. His mode of
procedure in the recent attempt to— er
— ah— transplant tlie county seat was
little less, tt seems to me, than Napole­
o n ic.”
The operation iu question was prose­
cuted by a gung of radical citizens who,
having failed to bring about the re­
moval of the oounty seat from Rocket
City to their own bailiwick by means
of the ballot, proceeded at the dead
hour of night to tiie rival hamlet, and,
headed by Colonel Polk, pried off tlie
side of tho courthouse, dragged out the
safe containing the county records, load­
ed the same into u Jackson wagon, to
w hich were attached six half wild mules
with unshorn tails, and set out across
tho scenery for home as the crow flies.
It is probable thut the attempt would
have been crowned with success had not
the embezzlirs of the Reat of govern­
ment presently begun to debate upon
the vexing question of who should fill
tlie vurious offices llu s suddenly made
vacant. The cavalcade first hesitated
and then stopped, and the members
thereof said unto each other, “ Yea.
yea!” and “ Nay, nay!” and other things
not to be recorded here. While they
were thus energetically engaged the
men of Rocket City, who were them­
selves early birds npon whom there
were no flies, came careering through
the gash in the atmosphere Which hud
net yet closed up behind the colonel
and his satellites uud fell upon them
with ferocity and sucli other weapons as
were at hund, dispersing them to the
four winds, and dragged tlie county seat
back iu triumph to Rocket City.
“ For clean rut, nnambignons enter­
prise,” commented tlie tourist, “ that
attempt stands unique, so fur as my
knew ledge extends.” »
“ Aw, yes,” acknowledged the ycrn-
clous Isaac. "That was all right enough
an lr igiit have been called enterprise.
But old Hundy huiu't what he used to
be. Ago is heginuiu to teil on him, I
reckon. He iiad to have help iu this
