SAT?BAY EVENING DECEMBER 24.
The Night Before Christmas
'Twas the nigbc before Christmas when all though
Not acrc?turj was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stocking were hung by the chimney with
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;
Tho children wore nestled all sung in tbeir bed-,
Whilo visions of sogar-plums danced in tho.r
And mamma in her'korchief and I in my cap.
Had just settled our brains for a long winter's
When out on tho lawn there arose such a clatter.
I sprang from my bed to see what waa tho matter.
Away to the window I tlew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up tho sash.
The moon, on the breast of the new-falleu snow,
Gave a lustre o! midday to objects below ;
W hen, what to my wondering eye should appear,
Rut a minia are sidigh, and eight tiny reindeer,
With a little old driver to live y and quick,
I know in a moment it must be at. Nick.
Moro iapid thin eagles hia coursers tbey came.
And be whiotled, and shouted, and called them by
'?Now, Dasher! now, Dancer! now, Prancer and
?u 1 Comet; on ! Cupid ; on ! Dander and Blitzen?
To the top of the porch, to tho top of tho wall!
Now, dash away, dash away, dash away all!"
As dry leaves mat before the wild hurricane fly
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to tho
So up to the housetop tho coursers they flow,
With the sleigh full of toya?and St. Mcholas, too.
And then in a twinkling, I heard on tho roof
Tho prancing and pawing of each little boof.
As I drew in my head, and was turning around,
Down the chimney St. Nicholas came with a
Ho was dressed all in fur from his head to his
And hisclothtb ivero all tarnished with ashos and
A bundle of toys he had hav.a on his back,
And he looked liko a peddler (oat opened his
His eyes, how they twinkled! hi-; dimples how
His (hocks were liko ro3ca, bis ccsc ?ko u cherry.
Hia dr U little month was drawn up like a bow,
Aud the beard on h's chiu was as wbito as the
Tho stumnof a pipe ho hold tight in his teeth,
And theemoke, it encircled his boad likoa wreath.
Ho had u broad face and a little round belly
That shook when ho laughed like a bowl full of
Ho was chubby and plump?a right jolly old elf;
And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of my?
A wink of his eye, and a twiBt of his head,
Soon g^vo mo to kn< w I had nothing to dread.
He spoke not a word, but went straight to bis
And tilled all tho stoekiugs; then turned with a
And laying his finger asido of his nose,
And giving a nod, up tho chimney be rose.
Ho sprane to bis sleigh; to his team gave a

The capital stock of this company is $025,000. divided into 025,000
shares of $1 each.
The company is incorporated under the laws of West Virginia, and
the stock is non-assessable, and carries with it no personal liability to
The Gold Mining Company (location Music Mountains, A. T .) is as
sound a mining enterprise as was ever placed on the market, and its
possibilities have never been exceeded. Every share should double in
value within a year, and they may quadruple, as they are based on
property that would ordinarily have been capitalized ten (10) times as
great on account of its known richness and promise.
The shares are made small so that any one can invest. Subscriptions
for five shares are as welcome as those for hundreds.
Every dollar of earnings will go to the stockholcers in dividends, as
there is nothing else that they can be used for.
A Wisewell mill, capacity 20 tons per day, with powerful machinery,
has been purchased and will be on the ground ready for erection at the
mine within the next thirty days.
The solid basis upon which the company is founded and the practical
proofs of the richness of the mine have already secured the conlidence
of the public, and the stock has steadily advanced in selling value
Within the last few days bona fide sales have been made at par.
There is no better stock on the market for a permanent investment.
For full information in regard to this Mine apply to the
