Brother Fisher Is giving some

iv the following parable: "We

to the verge of lunacy with his in*
cesHiint toots. A day or two after
winds we have seen that same
horn—a veritable 'stranded bugle'
—surrendered lo some less ambi
tious juvenile, who was content to
make a wheezy noise, that spoke
plainly of departed glory. Wo
havo seen newspapers go through a
similar history. Our neighbors at
Los Angeles musn't blow too much
at the beginning." He couldn't,
by any means, refer lo the "spirit

Mr. Moore's list embraces a num

bined capital foots up the enor
mous sum of $25,000,000. A feature
of Mr. Moore's ngeucy that is of

We regret to learn of tho death
of Isaac J. Smith, formerly a well
known and popular citizen of this
city. It seems that on Sunday,
July 28th, ho went into the river at
Cloverdale, in this State, to take a
swim. While in the water he was
seized with cramps, and befoie his
friends on the bank could reach
him he sank and was drowned.
He was buried at Cloverdale. The
deceased was a brother of Aaron
Smith, ef this city, and the two
brothers were nt one time at tlie
bead of a nourishing carpeting
house here. His body will he
taken up and removed to Chicago,

An exchange says: It may not be
generally known that common
cooking lodaisasure remedy for
the bite of a rattlesnake, if applied
soon enough. An incision should
be made to the depth of tho wouud
made by the fangs of the snake,
and into this cut the soda should
besprinkled. It will immediately
bubble up and turn green, caused
by the action of the soda iv neutral

remedy was never known to fail
when applied iv time.
Wing Sing, who sends the fol
lowing advertisement to a Santa
Barbara paper is certainly not a re
pudlator. Under the head "Notice."
he says: "I left Santa Barbara a
short time since owing $420 to two
washermen and Ihree ironers. I
washed very cheap and lost money.
China hoy stop work, so I had to
close my wash house, but I will
some time pay all I owe." It
seems the boys struck on Wing
after he had been bearing tbo laun
dry market so hard that his income
fell below the expenses. Asa
general thing, John is a better
financier .ban Wing Sing has
proven to be.

the old man, "it wasn't thut; I

The Way John Sherman Puts It.
There Is something epigramatic
in the way Mr. John Sherman,
Secretary of the Treasury, and
brother ol William TecumsehShei
man, de eritcslhe administration
ofUratltln Louisiana. He says it
reads like v history of hell. Tills
is strong language; but Mr. Sher
man professes to havo made him
self familiar with the subject, and
ho was a supporter of Grant.
It is proposed to re elect Gen.
Grant. Since he went out of olllce
he has spent his timecourtlng hon
ors front Ihe monarchical Govern
ments of the Old World. He has
been studying those Governments.
Thsre is no reason to expect that,
If re-elected, ho would make au
admiuistrai ion anywise different
from what he made before, unless
it should be. more monarchical.
Grant was particularly felt In Lou
isiana, and there hia friend Sher
man tells us that tho history of his
rule reads like Ihe history of hell.
All persons in favor oi converting
this country into a pandemonium
will support Gen. Grant for re
election. —iV. V. Sun.
Poker in Colorado.
The town of Kairplny, Colorado,
so Darned from the fair manner in
which ils peeple play poker, was
enliveot d not long since by a little
game whose satisfactory result will
commend it favorably to all who
become entangled iv like disputes.
Before the draw, Mr. Graves held a
king full nnd Walker rejoiced iv
three aces, but after that interest
ing ceremony, Walker exhibitetl
four aces, and claimed tbe stakes,
whereupon Graves drew aslxshoot
er aud reckoned his hand was the
best. Walker immediately supple
mented the four aces with a bowie
knife, and the dispute was settled
to the perfect satisfaction of the
outsiders. There was enough in
the pot to purchase two hundsome
cofllns, unit Ihe next day both gen
tlemen took up permanent resi
liences, side by side, in the beauti
ful cemetery that reflects so much

Any number of English law
lords and judges have boon men of
humble origin. Lords Eldon and
Stowell sprang from a coal filter;
Tcnterden and St. Leonards from
barbers; Lord Hardwicke, who be
camo Attorney-General at 31, from
a Dover attorney, who, according
to some, was hung for forgery.
Chief Baron Pollock—whose broth
er became a Field Marshal—was
thoson of a Charing Cross saddler.
Sir William Follett—the ablest ad
vocate of the century—was son of
an Exeter tradesman, as was also
Lord Gilford. When rising In the

speech to parliament explaining
his course in Berlin, he said that

precious possessions through bad

Englishman must deplore at this
moment, and which would not
have occurred if tho principle
which now governs her relations
with the colonies had been tlie 11

know that even at till 9 day, more
than one hundred years from the

Prom the beginning of tho reign

Shortly after Waterloo some
changes in the uniform of tbe
Guards were proposed, and George
