A compositor on the Linn county Patriot...

...who is a bachelor, got a hint the other evening, which, if he don’t take, he ought to be kicked sure. He was at a social gathering, and the conversation happened to turn on sewing machines, their cost, &c., when a rosy-cheeked damsel looking up timidly into his face said: “Pa has two sewing machines to give away.”
