Too good to be lost.

--A countryman was in the town of Lumkin last week, and some one asked him how he liked the war news.--He replied ‘"very well."’ Are you to go? he was asked. ‘ "Yes;"’ he replied. Are you not afraid? ‘"No. If I should see a Yankee with his gun levelled and looking right at me, I will draw out my pocket-book and ask him what he will take for his gun, and right there the fight would end."’
