One of Union's 'imminent lawyers
started, recently, to visit High Valley,
in company with his beit girl. They .
got along nicely, tip one hill, down an- ,
other until the horse thought he had
enough of that kind of thing, and ;
stopped, balking right at the foot of the .
last steep hill, They in turn plead and 1
coaxed, but no go. .Mr. jumped
out and so did tho girl. They took his
balksliip by the bit, entreated, exhor- .
ted, talked oats, religion and business
to the brute, hut he would not budge.,
"Never mind," said the lawyer, "1 have
and idea." so he began to sing the song '
"Hark ye, on theold lior.-e," and before .
he had reached secondly, the horse was
going backward in the ditch, ker-cliug,
