One of our items a few weeks ago, referring to a herd of full blooded cows caused Fremont, who has only one cow, to dig up the hatchet.  She must indeed be a booster if she can represent a whole herd.  But on the other hand a fellow that pays $100 for a three-titter is apt to do most anything. There is not another man on this side of the Pacific who wishes the Fremont correspondent more success for his painstaking efforts and money invested than us, and why should he not proper?  His young stock are direct descendants of Jonah and King Pontiac, with a standing record of 2.27, but broadminded as he may be, like the rest of us, makes mistakes.  Last Friday evening, after the sun had set and a few stars twinkled in the heavens, friend Fremont arrived in Chili to attend the equity meeting.  The first object that his eyes rested on was something black and white coming down the street.  It is needless to state that he is so engrossed in his stock that everything of the above mentioned color looks to him like a Holstein cow.  He at once inquired for the owner with the intention to add another record breaker to his already famous herd, but alas the object in question happened to be one of the show Negroes dressed in a white shirt and black trousers.   A short time after the incident took place and the Negro proved that he did not belong to the bovine family, he was seen to devour the contents of a sardine box, someone having told him that the little fish would broaden the mind and fill up the cavity in his upper story.  He also, through kindness and generosity, presented the writer with a box and advised him to do likewise, and for which he received our everlasting friendship and gratitude.
