needed a mule real bad, so he offered to buy a white mule
from a farmer he knew. The mule was pretty old, but it
was plenty smart and still strong. So he asked the man
how much he wanted.
"Two hundred." said the man.
"How is that mule now -- is he still strong and
healthy?" asked Harvey.
"Oh, he's still kickin'." said the man, sort of
"I'll give ya one hundred twenty dollars' said
Harvey, "and I'll pay it right now."
"Sold," said the farmer. "Come by in a few
days and pick him up."
So Harvey waited a few days and went to get the mule.,
but the farmer told him the mule died right after he
bought it, and bein' it was not his mule, but Harvey's,
he was sorry but he'd have to keep the money. Harvey knew
the farmer had him.
Harvey thought and then said "That's all right, I'll

stopped by and said "You must have had a lot of
angry people when they found out that the mule was dead."
And Harvey said, "Only one."

A tourist joined several Beartown men
sitting on the porch of the General Store. They were a
taciturn bunch and, after several vain attempts to start
a conversation, he finally asked, "Is there a law
against talking in this town?"
"No law against it," answered
one of the men, 'But there's an understanding no
one's to speak unless he's sure he can improve on silence."
