The population 'of Nevada is steadily
dwindling. The Carson Tribune estimates

voters in the stitte. In 1880 the total vote
was 10,011.' Only one county hat 8,000
voters, and of all tha others only three
have a voting population in excess of 1,000
each. One county U credited with 300
votes only, and there are five counties whose
combined vote will not exceed 2,500.

A sure cure for small-pox, which has

this morning. They have, for a month

handsomest in the city and that duty has
been well done.

A gentleman up from Metropolis
states that the insurance Iraud, charged by
tho Vienna Journal against prominent citi
zens of Metropolis, III., has the foundations
suggested and is opening up thore in a way
that prom scs to be livoly. A representa
tive of the insurance company defrauded
is on the ground "fixing things" and states
that be has come to stay , until mattors are
straightened. : The names of several promi
nent citizens of the place are given as par
ties Conspicuous in the swindle, but as our
informant could not remember aL we omit
giving any. The strangest part of the af
fair to us seems to bo in the. fact that not
withstanding the matter has teen on hand
for two weeks or more, not a paper of Me
tropolis has laid anything about It. Pa
Michael Hourigan, a farmer residing
near Bird's Point, and who formerly car
ried on business in Cairo, was in the city
for the purposo ot having a wounded arm
dressed. Going into his residence after
dark he fouod a negro secroted behind the
door, who opened fire on him with a pistol.
The first shot passed over his bead, while
the second only passed far enough through
bis heavy clothing to bruise the skin ou his
back. Mr. II. grabbed his rifle and struck
at the villain, when ho fired another shot,
which struck him on the left arm near the
elbow, making a luvere flesh wound. He
claims to know the would-be assassin, and
will "lay" for him.
In the year 1885 there will be two

two. March 30 there will be a partial
eclipse of tho moon, invisible in the United
States. September 8 a total eclipBO of the
tnooa will take place, invisible here, but
visible in Australia, South Pacific ocean
and Capo Horn. September 24 there will
bo a partial eclipse of the moon, visible

The St. Louis Globo-Domocrat, a re
publican paper of the deepest dye, thus
scores the plucked knight: "Mr. Blaine's
letter dismissing bis suit against the In
dianapolis Sentinel is exceedingly ill-tern
pered and unfair in its spirit. la effect he
says that he coul l not get a just verdict in
Indiana. This is a serious accusation to
make against the people of a whole state
It is a serious accusation against the federal
court, which in Iadiana is republican in all
its branches, and which in all the states,
whether republican or democratic, is honest
and impartial. It seems to us that Mr
Blaine might have withdrawn his libel suit
against the Sentinel without libeling the
whole state of Indiana, her jury system,
and her courts of justice."
Caciib, Dec. 14, 1884.
Dear Bulletin: Ouce again we are
upon the eve of Chr stmas, that season
which to the seniors seems oft recurring,
but to the juveniles a long way apart,
period favorable of old to slippers burden
ed with impossible flowers and dressing
gowns without any fit for the gentlemen
and French bon-bons for the ladies.
Nowadays the friendly little tokens giv
en in memory of the great gift to the
world over eighteen hundred years ago are
in most instances more practical. Beauti
ful cards and exquisitely illuminated poems
are but two of hundreds of dainty things to
be found by those in search of souvenirs
that will not melt away. That the em
broidery fever rages, I am now well aware,
to be sure, having met with its effects the
last time I was at Wetaug. Every woman
in the town has given up washing her
children's faces and combing her own hair
for that dear delightful arraseno and that
charming new Kensington stitch.
The Kensington work looks to me very
like the silk embroidery I used on some
slippers for Darius the first Christmas I
knew him. And the armsene looks as
though the women had torn up their air
castles and worked the pond-lillies with the
material. You know they were mado of
muslin stripped up fine and raveled out to a
few threads, twisted enough to look pretty.
Darius' niece made me one I have kept for
years and think a great deal of. But ot
course Mrs. Bulletin has one in her beat
room too, they make such nice fly roosts.
No doubt the arrasene has reached Cairo
by this time, so I need not say more.
I did not start out to tell all I know
about fancy work anyway. What I aimed
to say is this: While we are busying our
selves with love-tokens for those near and
dear to us, let us not forget that there are
those for whom there is no such affection
ate thoughtfulness, or rather, no such proof
of thoughtfulness. Let us not fail to un
derstand that in the first instance onr giv
ing is a specie of selfishness tfter all, since
in doing so it is often to please ourselves.
For it is a pleasure to wituess the height
ened color and brightening eyo of the re
cipients of our kindness, as well as to be
able to bestow their favors where their
beauty or fitness are a constant reminder to
us of our generosity.
"It is more blessed to give than to re
ceive." Therefore let us not employ all our
time and means in such ways as to entirely
exclude the needy, I once heard an old
gentleman say that of all the dinner parties
ever given in his house the most satisfacto
ry to him were thoso to which indigent
widows and orphans alone were invited.
Most of us are forced to be more modest in
our giving, but many a basketful, many a
substantial favor could be sent out from our
supplies if our hearts throbbed with the
right impulses. "Tho toor ye have with
What a strango world this isl Better
than it used to be, but still could be im
proved as to some of its institutions. This
occurred to me while listening to tha baby
voices of the Bridges children in St. Louis
recently. Their father, a strong able-bod
ed man, possessed of sufficient Intelligence)
to warrant bit becoming a oandidate for an,
elective office, entered the race' with a full
determination to win. He ran to well his
opponent was barely one vote ahead. That
ingle vote loft Bridges without the office)
he bad spent every available dollar to gain.
nstead of accepting tbe situation like a
philosopher and going bravely to work to
replenish bis exhausted exchequer, while
comforting bis wife with the assurance that
where one man gains another must lose, ha
has ever since sought to drown his disap
pointment in the wine-cup, ' His sensitive
spirit could not brook defeat, his heart was
wounded to the core. That was one year
ago. Now his little daughters, children
whose piping treble should be heard in ths
nursery alone, are facing the world he fled
from and singing their poor little songs to
earn bread, while be is at home drunk ai ft
Were I a Solon, he and all others of his
k should be marched into an establish

toman Home, with a hard labor, solitary

Competent physicians should constantly
treat tho inmates, competent taskmasters
should direct their labors, a proportion of
the proceeds to go to their tamilies. Then
f after a reasonable period their o'erween
ng taste for liquor was supplanted by s
ove for respectability and manhood, Z
should judge their sensitive retiring spirits
sufficiently strengthened and allow them to
face tbo world and their families. Wise
men say it takes seven years to make OS
over, but I should be merciful sod begin
with five, the length of the term to be in
creased with each repetition of the offense.
Maybe I am visionary out here in this
quiet retreat, but I must relieve my mind
occasionally, even at the risk of being tire
some. Mrs. D. Gbxsk.
