Excerpt from The Sazerac Lying Club: A Nevada Book It is hardly worth while to say anything about political liars, because every one kws that lying is part of a politician's trade, and will continue to be, in spite of the Scriptures, earthquakes, and Civil Service Reform, as long as politicians are human. There may be politicians who cant lie by word of mouth, but they lie in the silent tomb. In other words, the race of truthful politicians is extinct; or if there are still living men who will t or cant lie to get office, it is because they are t office-seekers. This purports to be a book on lies and lying, but it does t treat of the lies of politicians, stock-brokers, newspaper men, authors, and others, who lie for money; neither does it touch on the untruths of scandal, mischief, or malice, but only on those lies which amuse, instruct and elevate, with out harm. It is a record of lies told in a club kwn as the Sazerac Lying Club, whose objects, as its name implies, are lying. A chapter is devoted to the rise, progress, and history of this club, interspersed with these lies. The book contains a number of sketches of odd characters in Nevada, and local narratives of life in Austin, written by the Author, and published from time to time in the columns of the austin reveille, of which paper the writer has for several years been editor, and which have been clipped from the files of that journal, and made to do service in pad ding out this book to a sellable size.
