And h ide themselves one by one.

The world is al allight,
Every tree is full of glee,
Every blossom bright;
Every bird is singing
A welcome to his King,

You glorify everything."

tIOIAL SUASION IN COLO
Three months ago, when 200 of
the leading citizens of Gunnison
City met in convention on a street
corner, there were seven or eight
Michigan men among the crowd.
When Colonel Parker presented
the following resolution, it was a
Michigan man who supported it:
Resolved, That a committee of~
five be appointed to wait upon
Calabash Sam, late of Deadwood,
and inform him that after sunrise
to-morrow morning this crowd
will open fire on him with the in
tention of furnishing a corpse for
our new graveyard.
The committee of five went out
to find Samuel and deliver their
mc'ssage. He sat on a bench at
the door of his shanty, a shotgun
across his knees 4t:d a pipe in his
month, and he preserved silence
while the chairman of the con
mittee read the reM,oltiont ; 1 hen
'T~hat means me, does it :?'
'They don'c like my style of
carving and shooting, eb ?'
'That's what they kick on.'
'Well, I won't go. You haven't
got 'nuff men in the whole valley
to drive Calabash Sam a rod. Re
turn to the convention and report
that I'm here for the season.'
'I forgot to menshun,' continued
the chairman, in a careless voice,
as he leaned on his gun-' I forgot
to mensbun that the convensbun
bas adjourned. This committee
thus finds itself in an embarrass
ing situation, and it sees only one
way out of it. Onkess you'd
agree to pick up and travel, this
committee will feel called upon to
'To begin shooting; you mean ?'
'Exactly, Samuel, exactly. You
may have already observed that
two of the committee have got the
drop on you.'
'Corpses which are riddled with
buckshot have a ver-y unpleasant
look,' contmnued the chairman, as
he rested his chin on the muzzle
of his gun.
'Yes, that's so.'
'And it's kinder lonesome, thbis
being the first plant in a newv
'Y-e s, it may be.'
'And so, take it all around, the
committee kinder indulges in the
hope that you'll see fit to carr-y
your valuable society back to the
Black Hills. You may have ob
sarved that three shotguns, each
under full cock, are now looking
straight at ye. We don't want to
bluff, but it's getting nigh supper
:Well, after l ookmng the matter
all over, I'm convinced that these
diggings won't pan out low grade
ore, and 1 guess I'll take a walk.'
'Right up this trail ?'
'Very well. While the comn
mittee feels sorry to see you go,
anid wishes you all sojrts of' luck,
it hasn't time to shake hands. Step
foff', now, and for fear you ain't
used to walking, we'll keep these
guns pinted up the hill until y*ou

LISTEN TO THIS, GIRLS.
Dr. (arbally, an eminent physi
cian and chemist, testifies that
the cosmetics which the fashion
able belles of the present day are
so fond of using and deem
so indispensible to their beau
ty, are the most deadly ene
mies to their vital system. Pa
ralysis that fatal and frightful
form of infirmity, is said to
be the result of the continual use
of the paints or waShes used for
enamneliung or otherwise artifi
cia!!y whitening the skin.
Chief among these fearful auxil
iaries of the toilet is that white
borror, "Laird's Bloom of Youth,"
w hieb is-so extensively used by thbe
ladies o.f society, married and sin
gle, for "making up" their com
plexions. The salts of lead con
tained in this preparationi. which is
the means of producing that pear
ly white, polished appearance of
the skin, on applying it, is thbe ac
tive agent of paralysis, and any
person who uses it, or any other
