Well, friend Nero, I was sorry to learn that your poetic vocabulary was so soon exhausted, was expecting to have something good from you. I do not think I can supply enough for both, as you say, but here goes for your answer.
Poetry you say you cannot write
Its useless for to try
You leave it all for me to do
Enough for both you and I.
Now Nero, this is not quite fair
As I can hold my own
Why that's enough for me.
The mark we made you cannot toe
I will not at you scoff
And if you cannot write a rhyme
I'll gladly let you off.
My little rhyme I now will close
I have no more to say
By bidding you good evening now
I'll write another day
Lucas

GANG OF TORTURERS GIVEN HEAVY FINES

Cumberland Md, Jan 26.
The court today imposed fines aggregating nearly $2,000, exclusive of costs in the famous Green Ridge orchard hazing cases, involving assault and carrying concealed weapons. Out of the cases also grew the illegal sale of liquor in the commissary, and fines aggregating $500 were imposed in these cases.
Those fined were: John W George, superintendent; John Iskra, Horace Fisher, William McClure, Frederick Ludwig, William Billmeyer, Aaron George and Peter Simons. The cases grew out of the hazing of J W Viering and Andrew Zaler, of Davis W Va, who visited the orchard, as the defense claimed, to entice away labor. Zaler was manacled to a tree and a mule hitched to one arm. They were put through a night of torture, according to the testimony. Judge Boyd said that while there was evidence that Zaler's mission was to entice away labor, the assault was not justified, and that as no one was really hurt, he would not impose imprisonment.
