    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteSHERIFF, n. In America the chief executive office of a country, whose most characteristic duties, in some of the Western and Southern States, are the catching and hanging of rogues.



John Elmer Pettibone Cajee

(I write of him with little glee) Was just as bad as he could be.



'Twas frequently remarked: "I swon! The sun has never looked upon So bad a man as Neighbor John."



A sinner through and through, he had This added fault: it made him mad To know another man was bad.



In such a case he thought it right To rise at any hour of night And quench that wicked person's light.



Despite the town's entreaties, he Would hale him to the nearest tree And leave him swinging wide and free.



Or sometimes, if the humor came, A luckless wight's reluctant frame Was given to the cheerful flame.



While it was turning nice and brown, All unconcerned John met the frown Of that austere and righteous town.



"How sad," his neighbors said, "that he So scornful of the law should be -- An anar c, h, i, s, t."



(That is the way that they preferred To utter the abhorrent word, So strong the aversion that it stirred.)



"Resolved," they said, continuing,

"That Badman John must cease this thing Of having his unlawful fling.



"Now, by these sacred relics" --here Each man had out a souvenir Got at a lynching yesteryear --



"By these we swear he shall forsake His ways, nor cause our hearts to ache By sins of rope and torch and stake.



"We'll tie his red right hand until He'll have small freedom to fulfil The mandates of his lawless will."



So, in convention then and there, They named him Sheriff. The affair Was opened, it is said, with prayer. --J. Milton Sloluck

    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteDUEL, n. A formal ceremony preliminary to the reconciliation of two enemies. Great skill is necessary to its satisfactory observance; if awkwardly performed the most unexpected and deplorable consequences sometimes ensue. A long time ago a man lost his life in a duel.



That dueling's a gentlemanly vice I hold; and wish that it had been my lot To live my life out in some favored spot -- Some country where it is considered nice To split a rival like a fish, or slice A husband like a spud, or with a shot Bring down a debtor doubled in a knot And ready to be put upon the ice. Some miscreants there are, whom I do long To shoot, to stab, or some such way reclaim The scurvy rogues to better lives and manners, I seem to see them now --a mighty throng. It looks as if to challenge _me_ they came, Jauntily marching with brass bands and banners! --Xamba Q. Dar
