There ain't but prrshus little to choose

So there ain't much difference in 'em, and
if you try both, you'll say just as I do.
About the matter of two years ago, John
Smith's cow broke Into Sam Jones' field
and marched jest as straight as her four
legs could carry 6cr into his turnip patch.
and eat up two turnip:3, tope end all.—
Jones he seed her, and he sot his yeller dog
on her, and the dog, (he's a savage critter)
bit a hole through her hind leg, and got
his brains kicked out to pay for it. Su
fur fonts and Smith were square, but
there was them turnips—Jones vowed he
wouldn't plant turnips for a well, able bo
died man's cow to eat up. and sed if Smith
didn't walk right over to his house and
settle the damage, he'd pros' cut him with
a writ. Smith is a dare devil sort of a fel
low, and he told him to "come nn," he
warn% aleord on him.
As it happened, I was out agoin' to the
Conferen's meetin' when the cow jumped
into the field, so I seed the hull performuns.
Jones he seed me, and knowd that I seed

'A courtin' letter from Sam Jones ?' sez
I; 'why Sam Jones is a married man with
ten children and a baby ! What does he
want of more family I wonder ?'

How Railroads Injure Farmers.
Not long sinoe a farmer from our State
was bitterly complaining of a railroad to
one who wee connected with the manage

'I was fool enough to take stock to the
amount of hve hundred dollars, and I have
lost every cent of it. And, besides, the
cursed thing runs through my farm '
'And has greatly injured it, I suppose,'
added the other, smiling and looking the
farmer full in the face.
'lnjured it!' replied the farmer. 'To
be sure it has. Why do you ask such a
foolish question ?'

the corporation !' naked the other.

The fainter scratched his head ;and af

'Just as I expected,' was the reply of
the other. 'Now let us figitre up a mo

hundred in the stook, and received for land
damages six hundred, and the railroad has
added to the price of your land, according
to your own showing, fifteen hundred, so
that you fairly owe the railroad sixteen
hundred dollars. Am I right ?'
The farmer was compelled to confess he
had made money out of the railroad, not.
