Teacher Called the Bluff.

(Rosebud News)


    The principal of the Travis school is evidently "the right man in the right place."  Recently a couple of young men pupils refused to be punished for violating some of the rules, drew their knives and informed the principal there was nothing doing.  The teacher, however, thinking perhaps that their ancestors might have at least passed through Missouri at an early day, called the young gentlemen's bluff and proceeded to "show them."  He pulled a six-shooter and compelled the young men to put up their knives and then gave them a much-needed trouncing.
