"Thar was sum imrty bad tneu around

critter of the lot was named Tom

Jest sorter hung around nt the co'ners.
He was powerful on the brag, but he
could light fur ull that, and blnieby
everybody got slccered o' blm. Uo went
about with a chip on his shoulder und

reason ho didn't bother tne fur a long
time, but ono day when I went down
to the co'ners to sell sum possum pelts
Tom was outer sorts and oiciied on

"I seed he was tryln' to pick a quar

him and tried to git away.
"I was In mighty pore health." ex
plained Zeb, "and no match fur slch a
man, and so I had to crawfish. Ev
erybody said I ortcr shoot him down,
but 1 couldn't shed blood that way. It
hurts me to this day to remember that
I went home like a whlpintd cur, leavln
that critter crow over me, but my mind
was inude up to tackle him as soon as
I felt like a man og'lu. When I got
home I wus cryln', and tho old woman
sez to me, sez she:
"Zeb, has the wah broke outag'lu?
" 'Then what's the matter?1
"Tvo bin bluffed.'
'"D'ye mean that Tom Smith has
f rowed over yo'?'
" 'That's Jest what ho has, and I'm so
pesky weak In tho knees that I had to
git uwoy from him.'
"'Jest bucked yo down, did he?'

"I felt better nrtor that," said Zeb.
"though I couldn't get over the hurt to

up to go, but Jest as I did so that b'ur
waltzed across the rond on his hind
feet and fetched him n cuff which
knocked him ten feet. Tom thought
I'd got out thur without his seeln' me,

"I reckon Tom must hev bin half
drunk not to know a b'ar from a man,
but ho thought It was mo fur shore,
and ho soon had a surprise party on

Tho b'ar knocked him down and rolled
him about a dozen times, and ho got
many a good lick lit on the b'ar, but
ut length the font was over, und Tom

A fine baby boy was born to Mr.
and Mrs. M. G. Lutsey at Langlois
Friday, September 10, 1915. The
proud father is already planning on
his retirement from the wrestling
game in favor of the little chap whom
he says has all the good points of a

brook no defeat.

Governor Withycombe is reported
to have said that effort would be made
to curb radicalism at the land grant
