LEXINGTON GROWS WITHOUT WATCHING
LEXINGTON, OREGON, THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 27, 190G
CHAFF FIOM THE STRAW STACK
The offender never pardons.
He that ventures not falls not
Hear both sides and believe little
Time Is money but we prefer the
A debt always grows bigger the more
you contract It.
He who is guilty believes that all
men speak 111 of him.
Pay your subscription promptly and
make the printer smile.
The man who flirts with the hired
girl has a domestic taste.
Never judge a man's honesty by
his collection of umbrellas.
Cold travels slower than heat, be
cause any one can catch It.
The multiplication table is the old
est piece of furniture in the world.
A dog biting his tail Is like a good
financier. He makes both ends meet.
A married woman of Texas shot off
her tongue.. Some men play in great
Mile posts are the most unsociable
things in the world, you never see two
of them together.
A goose puts its head under water
for divers purposes and brings it out
again for sundry purposes.
The best way tor a man to get rid
of mosquitos Is to wear high shoes and
buy his wife a half dozen nice open

Two young ladles kissing each other

We were recently asked "what Is
the most dangerous time to visit the

the cow slips about and the little sprigs
are shooting all around.
A Kansas man fed his chickens dog
biscuits and the roosters growl every
time he goes near them, chase cats
up trees and keep the whole neighbor
hood awake nights with their barking.
An exchange gets off the following:
'If men are the salt of the earth,
women are undoubtedly the sugar.
Salt is a necessity, sugar a luxury.
Vicious men are saltpeter; stern m.en
are rock salt; nice men are table salt.
Old maids are brown sugar; good na
tured matrons are loaf sugar; pretty
girls are the fine pulverized sugar."
Pass the pulverized sugar please.
An editor who attended church once
has the following to say; The sermon
was a good sermon as sermons go.
We enjoyed the singing and stood up
with the brothers and sisters while
they sang the good hymn, "Shall we
know each other there." While the
hymn was being sung we looked about
us and counted a dozen members of
the congregation and of the church
who do not speak to each other when
they meet on the streets or elsewhere
The thought occured to ys, why should
they know eaeh other there when thy
seemingly do not know each other
A subscriber once got a dun through
the postoffice and It made him mad,
says an exchange. He ' went to the
editor about It and the editor showed
him some of his own, one for paper,
one for coal, others for Wood, groceries
mill feed, flour, dry goods, milk, bread
ank several others. ' "Now," said the
patient editor, "I didn't get mad when
these came because I knew all I had
to do was to ask several, reliable men
like you to come in and help me out,
and then I could settle all of them."
When the subscriber saw how it was
he relented and renewed. Moral:
Never get vexed when asked to pay
what you owe, for the other fellow
may need the money.
