PUSH ROOT

  Last Sun, quite a few of our folks went down to Burlington and took in the Republican speaking. There was quite a good turn out but as is usual a t all political gatherings within the last few years very little enthusiasm. The Sears, Roebuck band from over about the Fountain furnished the music for the occasion. They did very well as per usual. They are getting to be a pretty good band. They can play alright sitting or standing but can't do much on the wings as yet. The reason for this is an excellent one and is no doubt absolutely so. It seems that every band worth the name has to have a clarinet (?sic) and some one to play it among them. They have this but as John Ed Stagg can't march and pat his foot at the same time they naturally can't do much playing on the wing if they could only get Ike Emmit to walk in front and beat time with a pitch fork they might be able to lay on the march.
  The political situation is about as usual here. All three sides are making big gains and if their claims are at all reliable, there are just 435 more voters here than the registrars found. All parties concerned have ordered fire works and fire water to celebrate with on election night. This makes a celebration sure in any event. A procession will be formed at the Camp Ground and will march due North about one mile to an old oak tree where the jollification will take place. All are invited to attend with torch in hand.
  The boys hereabouts have it in fro the trustees of the Burlington school because they employed a man to teach the school at that place this winter. Girls are awful scarce, the beaux of this community claim, and they look forward from one year to the other to the coming of a female school teacher to their midst. Then to have the school teacher turn up a man is very provoking to say the least. To make matters worse the buggy and automobile beaux from Burlington insist upon coming up here and paying attention to our Minnie, which is unfair, as the boys around here have not chance to get back at them unless they hide in a fence corner and take a crack at some of them with a rock or over ripe egg. This method of retaliation would necessitate staying up too late as they rarely even start home before nine o'clock.
  What have become of the weather pronosticators? Now is the time for them to begin making their weather predictions for the winter as the folks hereabouts would like to know what kind of preparations to make before it gets too cold. The black rings on the these wooly catapillars ordinarily show just when to expect most of the weather. If most of the black is in front all the bad weather will be early in the winter. If behind ice gathering and sleighing will happen along about Ground Hog Day or later. This year, the catapillars seem to be Republicans; that is they are all split up. Some of them have all the black in front; others have most of it behind; and still others haven't any at all. This leaves this source of prognostication a little uncertain and the folks are a little undecided just what to expect in the shape of weather.
  PERSONALS
  John Backlash, a great big overgrown hired hand over at Fleatown, came over here one day and tried to enroll as a pupil in our school.
