been devastating the gardens and small
farms in tho foothills to tho eastward of this

masses as to destroy all vegetation lying in
their path A farmer named Elem living on
the Chowchilla river in the southeastern
corner of the county reports that they have
attacked his farm destroying a field of bar
ley and another of wheat
together with an
orchard and garden After eating up the
crops of all his neighbors above on the river
they arc now spreading over the large farms
in the Appling settlement At Ounnin
hams and Bennetts a few miles to the
northward they are in still larger numbers
and are rapidly destroying the wintersown
wheat and barley vines and orchard trees
and on Bear creek and Own and Miles creek
they are so thick that their dead bodies
in the water create a stench that draws
the buzzards and drives away the
people North of Bear creek the grasshop
pers have passed down the ridge as far as
Atwaters farm and are destroying his vine
yard orchard and garden and also tho grain
fields The farmers complain of still
another pest the Hessian fly which appears
to be doing much harm on two or three
farms to the northward of this place Many
fear that the prospective harvest will be
made a failure by these pests

MEXICAN MONTE
An Oltl Sports Story of a Kcniarlc
able Occurrence in Oltl Mexico
I was just reading said a wellknown
Denver sport to a News man about a man
winkin Ins eyes after his head was cut off
and I nad an argument with Tom Rowe
who said suck a thing was impossible But
Tom dont know ftc never saw a mans
head cut off Now I know that I have seen
something just as strange I will tell you
about it Twenty years ago this month
there was a lot of us took a trip to Old Mex
ico to see what we could scoop inand by
the way we got scoopedand went to buck
ing heavy on every game we could strike
Weli what I started out to tell was about
one of our gang named Bill Brewster Bill
was a rattling dealer a good hand at short
cards and always had a pocket full of money
until he got struck on Mexican monte
Talk about your Greasers infatuation for
lie game I never saw one of them that
could hold a marker to Bill Hed get broke
Then hed get a pack of cards and deal him
self Hed turn tho cards for anybody or
anything when he was busted Sometimes
hed make a raise and quit and go to playing
faro where he was as a rule lucky But
no sooner would he get a big stake than he
would tackle monte and would invariably
get downed Us boys tried to persuade him
to stick to a white mans game but no he
wouldnt have it and was almost all the
time in a chronic state of impecuniosity
One day Bill had established himself in a
ralque shop with his cards and was turning
them for anybody who wanted to wager a
cent These was a party of Mexican bloods
ill the room and finally one of them saun
tered over to Bills table and asked him if
he would turn for 100 Bill said he would
though he did not have but 10 in the bank
The fellow slapped down his money and Bill
wins That made the Mexican mad and he
slapped down another Bill wins again
The third time and Bill scooped the pile
The Mexican asked Bill if he would turn
for 1000 and Bill told him it didnt make
my difference if it was a million as the bank
was able to pay three times that amount
The Mexican bet and lost Then he accused
Bill of cheating Bill called him a liar
I was standing right to one side of Bill
Ho had the cards in his left hand and had
hold of the bottom card with hig right The
Mexicans han1 was on his gun
Hold on says Bill I dont draw till I
make this turn Ill bet you 1000 to 100
that its the seven of spades
Done said the Mexican who threw 100
on the table
Bill commenced pulling the card out
slowly The Mexican was watching There
were two black spots showed up and Bills
hand stopped Quick as a lash the Mexican
drew his gun and fired Bill never moved m
his chair but his right hand kept up its slow
motion until the card was drawn from the
pack and held up to view It was the seven
of spades The hand moved slowly back
a < rabi and the card was deposited on the
t table Bill then leaned back in his chair
and shut his eyes
T We were all so exciiea when the shot
was fired that we didnt know what to do
and as Bill continued to turn the card we
supposed he hadnt been hit but we found I
out differently when we examined him He I
was shot directly through the heart I
Now I reason that thing out this way I
Bill was determined to convince that Mexi I
can that he didnt know as much as he
thought he did The thought was in his
mind when he was shot and although killed
instantly his wishes were carried out after
his death Bill was game too and I believe
that if he had not realized that he was a
dead man and had he wanted to win the
Mexicans money ho would have grabbed his
un and done some execution with it
gun
Thats why I say a man can do a thing
after he is dead

i A FIRE OF FURNITURE
New York City the Scene of a Terrific
Blaze This Morning
An Entire Block of Factories and
Tenements Goes Up in Smoke
Hundreds of People Flee from the
Flames to the River
A Light in the l7lorning
NEW Yonx May 27The vast furniture
factory of Herman Bros at Mangin and
Tompkins streets was discovered to be on
fire at 330 this morning It is a fivestory
brick building and occupies the whole block
It was an old building occupied by tho
Singer Sewing Machine Factory and was
saturated with oil The building is surrounded
I
rounded by miserable tenement houses oc
cupied by the poorest classes in the city
Tho fire was intensely hot and nearly
A HUNDRED FAMILIES WEBE DBTVEN PROM TiTErs
HOMES
They rushed out in their night clothes
and were obliged to camp on the riverside
where they shivered in the chilly winds of
the morning At 4 oclock the whole build
ing was in flames and there was no hope of
saving any of the property and the firemen
directed their efforts to make the miserable
people as comfortable as possible At 430
an alarm was sent out for extra engines and
it looked as though the whole surrounding
neighborhood would be destroyed
At 5 oclock alarms were still being sent
out for extra engines The factory was
filled with furniture and loss is estimated
at 1000000 This is a busy season of
the year and the loss will be still heavier for
the company Over three hundred men will
be thrown out of work The streets at 530
were crowded with people and
THE OEEATEST EXCITEMENT PRE AILED
In the neighborhood as everybody in the
surrounding tenement houses was moving
furniture and seeking to escape from tho
flames which were spreading fast in all di
rections
At 530 oclock special calls for extra
engines were being sent out and it is esti
mated that the loss would amount to 1
500000
Though the entire available force of the
fire department was summoned it was two
hours before the flames were fairly under
control The factory is a total loss Mr
Herrman estimates his loss at about 250
000 covered by insurance Five hundred
skilled workmen were employed in the
factory and will lose all their tools the ag
gregate value of which is about 20000
Surrounding buildings were damaged to the
extent of 25000

THE NASBYS OF THE COUNTRY
Col Joliu JP Irish of California
locates Their Political
Position
Col John P Irish of the Oakland Cal
Times was recently interviewed at Omaha
on the Postmaster question and asked to
speak his mind thereon In substance he
said that the country postoffice was the sole
point of contact between millions of our
people and the Federal government There
may be great changes in policy and the
great currents which arise in and manifest
the energies of an admiration may be deflected
flected dammed or diverted implying re
forms of great gravity yet if the people
continue to get their country mail from a
Republican postmaster the party which is
beneficially changing the major policies of
the government will get no speedy credit
because it shows no change in the politics or
person of the postmaster whose continued
stay deprives the people of needed visible
evidence that there has been change of par
ties in the government I am a great believer
iever in the forcible declarations of the
St Louis platform of 187G that to
effect needed reforms we must have
a change of measures and of men
On that platform we elected to the
Presidency the greatest leader that has ap
peared in a half century and though the
machinations of the men who should have
been changed cheated the country of the
service he could have given Mr Tildens
election gave him a primacy in the party to
which we owe the nomination and election
of Mr Cleveland Now I believe thoroughly
in civil service reform and support from my
place in the ranks every expression of Mr
Cleveland in its favor and these postoffices
of the class mentioned are the most powerful
instrumentality in establishing that reform
since they greatly influence the votes
which are to condemn or endorse that
amongst the other great policies with which
Mr Cleveland is so happily engrossing the
attention of the country The Democratic
arty is sincere and wholehearted in its
support of this reform while the Republi
can party is thoroughly antagonistic there
to It requires no argument to show that if
the pirty of civil service reform is beaten in
the tate elections between now and 1888
civil service reform is dead in this country
Now I think the President perfectly compre
hends the need of securing contact with the
people in the only possible way by which
millions of them can be reachedthrough I
the small postoffice and inasmuch as such
contact is vitally in the interest of his fore
most policy it is a demonstration that civil
service reform requires a change in these
postoffices Of course this throws the great
est weight of present responsibility upon
General Vilas and I am glad to know that
in him we have a man able to bear it and
one who will in the end satisfy his party and
gratify even the doctrinaires by seizing and
using the practical means by which this re
form policy is to be entrenched beyond the
possibility of successful assault even by a
future Republican administration As to
the differences and divisions in the
party they are more apparent than real Mr
Cleveland is in the midst of myriad difficul
ties but after all his strong will and won
derful judgment of men make simple to him
a task which would hopelessly whelm a
man less strong There are so many meri
torious men in our party deserving recogni
I tion for long and heroic service that their
recognition during one presidential term is
not possible The President thinks of the
future and deals with policies which will
project every worthy Democrats opportunity
into an almost boundless field of success
I that lies ahead Mr Cleveland is not build
I ing for today but for the coming quarter of
a century To go out of power in 1889 after
