Cream and peaches once a week,
Kiss your girl on the right-hand cheek ;
Apples green and apples dried—
Kiss her 011 the other side.—[Ashland Review.
That evinces wretched taste—
Take your girl about the waist,
Lift her to her red toe tips
And print it squarely on her lips.—[Frankfort Yeoman.
Seize the maiden in your arms,
Blushing with her tempting charms;
And, we think, it would be snugger
Oft to kiss and tightly hug her—• l'aris Citizen .
Take your girl in warm embrace,
Heart to heart and face to face ;
Eye to eve and nose to nose—
Flippitty-flop, and away it goes !—[Flemmiugsburg Democrat,
What's the use of all this rhyme?
Take your girl at any time,
Squeeze her till the blushes come—
Shut your eyes and—yum, yum, yum .'—[Christian at Work.
Brother Talmadge is quite right,
"Yum! yum! yum! and hold her tight"
But the tact for which we yearn,
Is how the mischief did he learn?—[Exchange.
Well, it's just this way, here in Thurber;
You take ¿our girl—it won't disturb her,
Let your Pompadour tickle her ban^s —
Her lips meet yours, and there they hang!

Tom Hughes, colored, one of the cagers in shaft No. 5, met
with an unfortunate and serious accident last Tuesday morning.
A lump of coal fell from above him several feet, striking his
head, and knocked him unconscious. He was conveyed to his
home and Dr. Binney summoned, who says that while the wound
is serious, he does not think fracture resulted.
Messrs. S. P. Smith and Will Foss, our new tonsorial artists,
are certainly "up to snuff" in their line of business. Though
strangers among us, by their gentlemanly demeanor and good
work they have made friends rapidly. They are making their
shop as neat and cosy as possible, and will next week add a
feature which will be hailed with delight by every one. They
propose putting in two bath tubs and fitting up two bath rooms
with all the comforts necessary, and all the necessaries for com-
fort—and cleanliness. "You're next."
- PERSONAL MENTION,
Mrs. Ward, Mrs. Thurber and Mrs. Harvey were visitors at
The Miner office this week.
J. C. Scott, editor ot The Item, a colored people's paper of
Fort Wrorth, was here this week.
Mr. E. C. Cunningham, "Smoky Bill," came in from camp
this week to see "the boys,' who made it as interesting for him
as possible during his short stay.
Mrs. Jennie Singleton is visiting relatives in the Desdemonia
neighboihood. She will in a short while go to Weatherford and
enter the Summer Normal at that place.
Mr M. C. Gillette, manager of the Dublin lee company. Dub-
lin, Tex., was a visitor in Thurber this week. Mr. Gillette is a
jolly, good fellow, and we are always glad to see him.
Miss Bonnie Keith of Stephenville is visiting her friend, Miss
Earl Harwood, of this town. Miss Keith is always a welcome
visitor in Thurber, and The Miner trusts her stay may be a
A. J. (Andrew Jackson) Burton, than whom there is no more
popular or successful salesman on the road, came in yesterday.
Mr. Burton is the Texas representative of that well-known dry
goods firm of Swofford Bros., Kansas City.
Mr. G. \\ . Taylor, one ot the jolliest boys in our town, con-
nected with the hardware department, is off for a few days'recre-
ation, during which time he will visit his old home, Quanah. and
other points in the Paphandle country. He'll tell you all about
it when he returns.
Among our visitors this week were F.J. McCarthy, represent-
ing the Capera Manufacturing company, and G. C. Pratt, repre-
senting the 'Texas Brewing company, both of Fort Worth. These
gentlemen are thorough-going business men, and called at The
Miner office and contracted for advertising space with us.
Mr. H. E. Parke, representing the great Fort Worth packery,
was a business visitor in our camp this week, and, like all others
who have never visited Thurber, was enthusiastically surprised
at its make-up. He made The Miner office a pleasant call.
Mr. Parke will not overlook putting in a good word for Thurber
on any occasion.
Mr. Ed M. Watson of Fort Worth, recently with the Evening-
Mail, was a visitor in Thurber this week, a guest of The Miner.
Mr. Watson, though a young man, is one of the most popular
newspaper reporters in the Fort, and during his three years" resi-
dence there none have made a better record.* He has, however,
decided to abandon the newspaper profession and return to his
former home, Columbia, Mo., where he will begin the study of
law with one of the leading firms of attorneys there. Mr. Wat-
son is peculiarly fitted for either the newspaper profession or that
of law, and is a graduate of the Missouri State University. We
wish for him all success in his new venture.
