Nevada " Bead Agents.
How They Gm Throw gk" a Stage Loss)
The Virginia Enterprise gives the fol
lowing particulars, as related by a pas
senger, of the robbery of the Susativille
"The driver remarked, 'There is a
possibility of meeting them to night; so
boys, you h id better be ready.' We
thought no more about it until we were
stopped a mile ont of town. Our first
intim ition of trouble was the report of
firn arms and the stopping of the etage.
After several shots had been exchanged
between the passengers and highway
men, Stresly holloed 'enough ' Five
more shots were fired into the staue after
we had surrendered. Then one of the
robbers got into the stage and ordt-red
us to embark and to hold np our hands,
which request we reluciantly complied
with, he all the while covering as with
his pidtol. I noticed that his hand was
shakiiiz baulv, and told bun to be care
ful or hi pieto! would go off and hurt
me, and remarked to him that I was hit
in the Ire alreutlv. lie retried. "Mr
hoy, you are lucky if I don't hit you
through the head.' Presently another
one came round from the off to the near
1-iTe'aml covered"h?with his pistol. The
third highwayman went up and searched
the boot for the treasure box, which he
did not find, as there was none on board.
The driver played possum on the thieves
by pretending he was killed. To keep
np this impression he lay stretched out
on his seat and was uot disturbed. The
robbers next made a thorough search in
side of the stage, tearing open bundles,
parcels, etc. 1 should have stated that
while the shooting was going on I took
my puree, containing SSOO in notes and
gold coin, oHt of my pocket and threw
it in tho direction of the robber. While,
the thieves were passing parcels out of
the stage to the one who was covering
ns with his pistol, Jnresly lowered Lis
right hand to his pautalons pocket and
extracted his purscLf containing S00 in
cniudrnpping it on the ground aud cv
ering it with his foot. The man on guard
saw him with his hand lowered and or
dercd him to raise it, using at tbe time.
very emphatic latieunre. After the rob
ber had prospected the stage thoroughly
L- ramc out in front of us. He was the
largest man of the ihrec. Appearing tn
recognize myself he tttrued his Lice away
fioui me and told the smtllest man to go
through u. The nue with the soldier
coat kept Lis pistol on ue all the while
the little fellow was searching us. Du
ring the search, Morrison kept sayiug to
the other one, 'Go down into their boots.'
They got SS1.50 in coin and a knife aud
pistol off of Bloody ; from Stresly they
captured nothing but a Deringer, and
Lorn myself they got abont S17 in coin,
together with a pistol and shut-gun. Af
ter finishing their work they ordered us
into tbe stage and slatted off iu the di
rection of town. Thire were fiorn twen
ty to twenty-five S''Ots fired during the
fracus. The caeunlties were as follows :
One horse ehot through the neck, Stresly
shot through the bat, McCready shot
through the hut, together' with a flesh
wound on the leg. Tbe stage-coach was
riddled with . bullets. As soon as the
robbers left tbe driver said to us: 'Help
me to get the horses up ; they have gone
back to town, and let us get iu ah'cad of
them, if we can ' We hitched np the
two wheelers and returned to town, one
of the passengers riding the uninjured
leader and leading tbe other. Ou arri
ving in town we gave the alarm and got
out the Sheriff, who returned with us to
the scena of the robbery. My purse
was picked up within fifteen feet of the
stage. Stresly's was also reoovered
both having eseaped the uotice of the
robbers. After completing my journey
I returned to Reno on Tuesday last aud

limiuary examination of Andrew Morri
son aud Clemeut Lee, which came off in
in tbe Justice's Court, in Reno, day be
fore yesterday, Clement Lee ras held
to await tba action of the grand jury in
the sum of $5,000. The examination of
Morrisou was couiiuued yesterday. It
was proven on the examination that Mor
rison aud Lee, on the night previous to
the robbery, stopped at Brown's ranch
nine miles south of Reno getting sup
per and feeding their horses. Ou the
sa'iie evening, between ten and eleven
o'cl.ick, Kincaid, hearing some noise
about his premises, walked from his bouse
in a southerly direction, tn the head of
the flume, aud fouud Morrison and Lee
there On asking them what they were
doing there, Morrison replied witn an
oath 'that it was none of bis (Kiucaid'sj
business. Morrison was wearing at the
time a blue army overcoat and Lee had
pa a drab colored one. Tbe same coats
were identified by the passenger as hav
ing been worn at the time of the robbery.
A pistol was described and identified by
McCready as tbe one held 'over him by
Clement Lee At the time of tbe rob-!

masked. While the passengeis were
made to digorge their valuables, Lee re

American Ladies in Paris.
Etiquette of the Streets.
The following from the Paris cotres
pnndence of the Baltimore Ameriran,
gives one a pleasant idea of the street
manners of tbe "most polite city in the
world : "
American ladies visiting Paris arc apt
to be much annoyed until they learn the
etiquette of tbe streets. They are liable
to compromise themselves if thny appeal
alone upon the thoroughfares without the
observance of certain rules which time
has rendered fixed aud immutable. In
the first place, a respectable young lady
iu Paris never appears on the streets in
anything but a black o'ress, unless when
with a mule escort or an aged duenna. If
in a light or w hite dress her character is
liable to be mistaken, especially if she
rbould be young or interesting. Then if
she is without escort she must, to main
tain her character, push straight forward
without looking to the right or left. If
she should stop to look iu at tie fine dis
plays iu the store windows, for which
Paris is so famous, she must not be rnr-'
priscd if some of the young men who
lounge arouud the cfrt walk up to her,
nudge her elbow, and enter into a con
versation. It is the practice of the temi
moitde to thus stop when a gentleman is
approaching whose attention they desire
to attract, and the masculinet of loose
morals ch ose to regard any one who may
stop to look at the gorgeous array of dia
monds iu a wiudow as having invited
So also in riding. A lady seated alone
in a carringe, either on the street or iu the
Bois tic Boulogne, is regarded as reserv
ing the seat befide her for any chance
gentleman whom she may attract. Thus
ladies who Lave no male escort either
take rervents With theni, when they ride
ir borrow a neighbor's child, if they have
none of their own. To ride alone would
be to iuvite insult or offensive attention
Tue same is the rule in Loudon, and
almost throughout Europe The fact is
that the more respectable classes seldom
walk t&e streets. Jit Loudon you never
sec what we would call at home a well
dressed lady. Those who seem aud un
doubtedly are reputable, are arrayed iu
plain snits of LLick, evidently intending
and desiring to shim rather than court
observation. A finely dressed female iu
London is invariably regarded as a wo
man of loose character if she have noes
cort with her, and even then she tamt
carry a very demure face and her escort'
must nut put on any foppish airs if he

Good Marriage Maxims.
A - good wife is the greatest earthly
A man is what his wife makes him.
It is the mother that monlds the char
acter and destiny of tEe.child.
Never make a remark at the expense
of tbe other ; it is meanness.
Never part without loving words to
think of during your absence. Besides,
it may be that you will' not racet again'
Never both manifest anger at once.
Never speak loud to one another, un
less the house is on fire
Never r, fleet on a past action which
was done with a good motive and with
the best judgment at the time.
Let each one strive to yield oftenest to
the wishes of the other, which is tbe mu
tual cultivation of an absolute unselfish
ness. Never find fault, nnless it is perfectly
certain that a fault has been committed ;
and even then prelude it with a kiss, and
Never allow a reqneet to be repeated.
"I forgot" is never an acceptable excuse.
Marry into a differeut blood and tem
perament from your own
Lf.ar.n to do soaethiug, young man,
aud learn it well. Set it down that no
man ever succeeded in this world with
out knowing how to do some particular
thing better than Lis fellows. . Whether
it was in a store or in a tinshop, in a bank
or on tbe box of an express wagon, ex
press wagon, excellence was shown, and
made the beginning that is tbe founda
tion of a successful career. Hard work
is the price asked for success, and it can
be purchased with no othef kind of cur
rency. Tut Devil could drive woman out of
paradise, but the Devil bimelf cannot
drive the paradise out of a woman.
Mb.i who talk degradingly of woman
display their own degradation.

SatctSsfnl Search for Inscribed Slabs,
A correspondent of the London At'tn-
xum writes from Jerusalem :
The excavations fa search of antiqui
ties in Moab have proved snrpr!siri!y
successful. About six hundred objects,
in earthenware jars, lamp;, figures of
men animals, inscribed slabs, etc, have
been safely lodged in Jerusalem Many
of these are of the highest interest. One
of the most striking is the figure of a calf,
nearly life size, iu a sitting posture, an 3
with a hole in the Lack, apparently to
burn incense in. There is uo inscription
npon this figure, but another call's head,
of smaller size, is placed npright upon
an earthen disc, which has some letters
inscribed upon it. The jars are of large
size and somewhat rude construction, and
are principally valuable for the writing'
with, which they are covered".
The characters are iu some instances,
stamped (some stamps in earthenware
have been found), in other engraved with
a sharp instrument, whilst a third kind is
in strong relief, and may have been
moulded, or, as appears to be the case
with one of the Limps, first formed in wet
c!ay, and tn ed stack on. It seems also
that some of these raided characters have
been formed by scraping away the sur
rounding claya work requiring much
skill and patience where the inscription
is copious and the character crowded.
The letters are cLitfJy PLcenician ; others
resemble "Nabathean," and others again
are forms not previously known here.
The human figures are very numerous.
Some are surmised to represent Molncb,
having a cavity in the capacious abdo
men, and a hollow space, perhaps for fire,
underneath. But the most remarkable,'
and iu some respects the most interesting.
' of these antiquities are the Phallic em
Hums Some of tliese are of very un
It i?, perhaps, fortunate, iu eb'fsr as the
recovery of these valuable antiquities is
concerned, that the American exploring
expedition has been delayed, it being cer
tain that no snch party, however small
and modestly equipped, cau enter Moab
without attracting the attention' and ex
citing the cupidity of the Sheikhs, and
putting a stop to all useful search for in
scriptions, etc. 1 1 id roportod that tberi
are at present nearly a hundred Arabs
employed in digging for antiquities. Each
man works npon his own acconct, and is
paid only for what he Le finds.

A young man, whose bluntness was '
such that every iffort to turn Liin to
account seemed lo be unavailing, received
notice from Lis employer that he did not

' But I am good for something, sir,"
pleaded the poor fellow, IctL to be turned
into the street. "I know I cannot make
a ealeman ; but do try me at something
else. I'm good for something."
"Well, what is it, do you' thiuk ?"
asked the employer.
"I don't know, sir ; but if you will

Don Piatt, writing from the White
Sulphur Springs to the Washington Cp
ital rays : "The paternal author of the
belle here, it is said, the other day. short
ly after Lis return to the Springs, was
approached by a youth who requested a
few minutes' conversation in private, and
began : "I was requested to see you, sir,'
by your lovely daughter. Our attach
ment ' "Young man." interrupted the
parent briskly, "I don't kuow what that
girl of mine is about. You are the fourth
gentleman who Las approached me this
morning on that subject. I have given
my consent to the others, and I give it to
you. God bless you."
"What a nuieance !" cxcl.iimed a gen
tleman at a concert, as a young fop iu

lady at his side. "Did you refer to i:ie,

' O no, I meant the musicians there, who
keep up snch a noise with their instru
