Piermoct Morgan might save time by buying the republican nom- ination for President for himself. j* A glance over thr list of Mr. McKinley's callers indcates that he is mixing religion and politics, as usual. jt There is one advantage in carry- ing historians on government pap- roll—history is written to suit the authorities. * Hard conundrums should not be asked in hot weather, and "what have we gained by the Chinese mix- up?" is a very hard one. Jt Secretary Wilson seems to think the owners of the heat-devastated cornfields can get relief through Christian Science methods. * If that Tennessee war between revenue men and moonshiners keep on as it began, the consumers of Tennessee "moonshiners" will have to pay higher prices. Comrade Sickles may take a no- tion to ask comrade Hanna some em- barrassing questions about the Com- missionership of Pensions, at the coming G. A. R. encam...

o ) • 10 () J HEREFORD REPORTER, FRIDAY, AUGUST 9, 1901 POETIC JUSTICE. How a New Jersey Girl Served Her Lover for His Cruelty to Animals. A Jerseyman who went out for a pleasure drive with his sweetheart not long ago received a needed though rather severe lesson on the necessity of being humane to animals in this day and generation. It was a very hot day and when the drive was about half over the horse be- came balky. The driver thereupon lost his temper and gave the horse an unmerciful beating. Then the trouble began. A constable saw him and promptly arrested him for cruelty to animals. He being un- albe to pay the money, his compan- ion settled the fine for him. Then she went home and wrote him a note in which she said : "When a man will so brutally beat a horse and so easily lose his temper, a woman marrying him would take the chance of the same treatment."' In the rest of the let- ter she released him from the en- gagement. Most people will be of the opinion that the young lady...

The principle may have been somewhat the same as that which induced the proprietors of certain French restaurants to have the cat in plain evidence when they had rabbit stew on the bill of fare, so that the customers might see that pussy was safe. In this case, however, it was the object of the proprietor to convince his patrons that the soup he served was not going to be made of mock turtle. One of his customers, having nothing better to do, began to tease the turtle, kicking it on the head and otherwise tormenting it. The creature endured for a season, but not through Christian forbearance, as the sequel shows. He was merely waiting for his chance, and that is possibly the secret of some forbear...
