SHORT OF GIRLS.
Durango is a small ut a very chival
rous village in southern Colorado. It has
a great many advantages. The climate
is good, the soil is fertile, the men are
robust, but ihrere are no women. And
this is just where the trouble comes in.
The good people of.Durango have, there
fore, issued a heart-rending appeal to the
world-at-large for assistance. They want
girls, and they say so, and this is way
they put it :
"WANTED IN DIl'ANI;O.
"We want girls. Girls who can get
themselves up in good shape to go to a
dance. The boys are getting tired of
receiving invitations with a request that
they 'bring ladies.' They are like
oranges and apples.. very scarce. We
want girls who will go to church and to
bible class on Sundays, and the kind that
can draw a congregation of the other
sex, and who will take, a buggy ride af
ter the lesson is over. This will help
the livery lbusiness, aud will also hasten
the sale of residence lots, for buggies are
the vehicles in which homes are first
thought of by mnany people.
"We want girls who can wait on the
table, and who can smile us into an ap
petite when stomach bitters are impo
tent, and who will make the boarders,
regular at their meals.
"We want ft and 'funy girls to make
us smile all over, and lanu and fragile
ones to leau on our arms; and petite.
blondes to show themselves upon sonny
days; and stately brunettes, so beautiful
in the twilight.
"We have mineral enough, and plenty
of coal, and oxide of iron. The only lack
in our resources is those potent civilizers
of their pioneer brothers-the girls."
WHERE IN SHE
The Vicksburg Coliunercial ' Mon
day, says: A very mnysteriou,, and dis
tressing disappearance of a young lady
from Madison county, has recently come
to light. It appears that Miss Monnie
fichards, residing with her parents at
the village ot' Sharon, visited some
friends in Natchez last December. On
the eleventh day of March she took pas
sage on the steamer J. 'M. White, and
the next day, the twelth, arrived at this
city. She entered a cartiage at the
wharf boat landing and from that mo
nment she has been as completely lost as
though the earth lead opened and swal
lowed her. Miss Richards is the daugh
ter of Mr. William Richards, of Sharon,
is a lady of fine intelligence and the

GALLANT JOE LANL
Joseph Lane died at his home in Rose
burg, Douglas county, Oregon. The de
ceased was born December 14, 1901, in
Buncombe county, North Carolina, con
seqently he was nearly 80 years when
he died. At an early age he emigrated
with his parents to Indiana, where he
was several times elected to the Legis
lature. While serving in the State
Senate in 1446, the war broke out with
Mexico. Lane at once resigned his seat
and enlisted as a private in the ranks.
He was soon elected Captain of his
company, and afterward chosen Colonel
of his regiment. ' While at the State
rendezvous at New Albany, Colonel Lane
received a commission from President
Polk as Brigadier-General, and in a few
days was on his day at the head of three
Indiana regiments for the seat of war.
In the Fall of 17 he landed at Vera
Cruz, and was ordered to join General
Scott, then on the march to the City of
Mexico. General Lane's march was a
succession of skirmishes, in which he
was unitormly successful. On tne 22d
of November he captured Matamoras,
and finally, three weeks 'later, arrived
at Scott's headquarters. He was sub
sequently brevetted Major-General 'for
gallant and meritorious services." Gen
eral Lane was appointed by President
Polk Territorial Governor of Oregon in
August, 1l28. He organized the Gov
ermnent of the Territory during the
same year. From 1351 to 1i59 he repre
sented Oregon as a Delegate in Congress;
was electeld I;nited States Senator in
1',9 an served until 161. He wds nom
inatedl for Vice-President on the Nation
al ticket with John C. Breckinridge
by the BIaltimore Democratic Conven
tion ofl Ni0. On his return to Oregon
in 161 General Lane retired to his farm
in Douglas county, and lived for nearly
ten years in complete obscurity, only
associating with his relatives and inti
mate personal friends. Since 1872 he
mingled more wit'h the world. About
twelveyears ago General Lane lost his
beloved wife, which weighed heavily on
him in his advanced age and with his
declining health. During his later years'
he has taken a more active interest in
political matters, goingso far in his Dem
ocratic zeal as to make a speech in this
city during the Presidential campaign
of 1q76. He was nominated for State
Senator for Douglas county last year,
and defeated withthe remainder of the
Democratic ticket by a large majority. At
the meeting of the State Central Com
mittee, ii 'January, 188o, he was
one of five to pt'pare an address to the
Democracy bf Oregon. He t6ok as
active a part in the State campaign last,
June as his age wounld permit, making
several gpeeches. General Lane leaves I
many relatives ini various portions of
the State, all honored citizens. His
youngest son, Lafayette Lane, repre
sented Oregon for one year in Congress.
Shortly prior to his death, General
Lane had his seeretary prepare a fare
well itter to his many friends, which
he signed with his own hand, with' his
customary tirmness. His health has
been precarious for more than a' y6at!I
past. Yielding to the weight of years,
and suffering from the effects of several
severe wounds received dnuring the Mext
icap war, be began gradually declining

A CLERICAL '%iECM¶OTh OF 'iIU'
OL N F'lIME..
An old, Connecticut clergyman, once
upon a time, while his wife was absent
from home; was invited by one. of his
parishioners to dine with him, which
invitation he accepted ?
The first proposition made, on enter
ing the house, was, that they "fke,
something," to which the Spinist0 -
sented. The liquor furnished was old
Jamaica rdm, and the visitor drank as
was his wont--as 'he "ould have drank
the rum he usually purchased of his dea
cons, both of whom sold it.
Just before sitting down to dinner-the'
host produced the decanter pgain, and
again the twain partook The meal was
eaten, pipes were smoked, and, by, and
by, before.setting forth into the chill
autumnal air for the afternoon meeting,
the host offered the deoaSter once mose.
'The good oldelergyman thought he knew
his own cap ty, and he drank accord
ingly. It m him feel good. The rum
was excellent--smooth as oil-the best
he ever drank. And on his way to the
church, in the chill bracing air, he was
But, alas! upon sitting down in hip
pulpit,' with the great box-stove, at'the
head of the broad aisle, directly below
him, sending up its heat of old hickory
wood, the strong rum began to .take
serious effect-so much so, that the poor
old clergyman could not deliver his ser
mon! His friend, with whom he had
dined, saw the trouble at once; and,
having explained to the congregation
that the good man had complained of
feeling very unwell at his house, he
summoned the assistance of the deacons,
and helped tl9 unfortunate man out
into the open air.
Of course, this made a stir; and the
good deacons, feeling themselves called
upon to uphold the morals of the people,
proceeded forthwith to make complaint
against the minister, and to summon
him before the church for trial.
The day appointed foonthe trial ar
rived, and the minister was called up
on to confess, and, if he wished, to ex
plain. He did so, as follows:
"Brethren-I confess my. misfortune ;
but, let me assure you, I was led into it
through a misconception of facts. I
took dinner with our good Brother Ar
nold. He, as usual, offered me the
friendly cup, and I imbibed as had been
my custom. As many of you are anware,
I have been in the habit of drinking
spirit as furnished by our worthy dea
cons; and I knew not, at the time,
that Brother Arnold had another article
entirely. le has explained to me, how
ever,,that the J'inaica rum which he
furnished on that occasion was procur
ed by him directly' from the importer i
whereas, you will remark, I measured
my allowance in the belief that it had
pssxed through the hands of our denon,!
I can only say, that I have learned a
lesson, which I trust will be of protit to
Ybu can imagine, I fancy the appear
ance of those two deacons on that occa
sion. Suffice it to say, they ,did, not
press the complaint any furthers
But those were things of the past. In
those days a wedding without Wine
would have been no wedding at all; and
your total-abstainer was as rare in the
pulpit as he would have been 'in regi
A Chicago young man broke into 'the
room of the girl he loved to carry her
away,, as she refused to marry him. She
was absent, but left the bull dog asleep
on her bed. The room was dark. The
dog didn't bark, but worked. In about
s.even minutes the remains of.the young
man came out and said he wouldn't war
ry that girl for $70,000.
A sea captain was brought before a
justice in Marseilles and mercilessly atr
tacked by his opponent's lawyer. When
at length he was suffered to speak, he
said: "Your honor, I ask a delay of one
week in the proceedings, so that I may
find a big enough liar to answer that
man." His request *a& granted.

IN THE AUbSTRALIAN DBVs3Le ;
I was terribly frightened one aight In .1
Queensland by.a'dead man ridingp te
my camp-fire at:midnight. .I was quite
alone.. I heard my horses aeighing and,
another answering in the M~gas bushe~,
so I got up and put wood.oi, making ai
bright blaze, and presently into the cir
cle of light came a horsemen bending '
over his p~mmel, tWith his large straw:
hat slouched over his eyes. I took myil
revolvr off my saddle anti dsung' out:
"Good-night; mate! You travel late,,
Will you have a drink of tea "'? "
Not a word of answer. Just thel' my
two dogs, who were sniffing abotij et
up such a terrible cry it made )iq jump '
again. After a bit I began tp open onf I
eyes to the state of affairsand iusterd I
courage enough to walk up to thl olre
and take hold of the reins. While do"ing i
so I touched the rider's han4s, iw i
were 'cold asice. 'I'led'to get him o~
the saddle, but it was of np use. His le I
were out of the irons ahd wound tI4I 1
round the mare. I had to out the'iins
from the grip of his fingers.. I ,packe~
him on the horse when sunrise came
led him into T~mbo, here. i found lhe
was well known asadigger. Hehadset
out thence that morning--aftr drinking
nearly a hottle of brand~-to go to
place distant about forty miles, iand
was o6hly twylv. Imles from theto nship I
when he paid his ill-visit. Thee was no I
doctor within 200 nmiles at. that tiehb.
However, thdy held a'kib ofip!quest, at I
which the .L. c M. talked learmsdly bf
museulam contractiow and sunstroke,
and waspunzzled to decide whethe- the
brandy had anything to do with it, ,as
he could 4weirgfoin his own experience,
that tho liqunt was frst-clas. He prais
ed meobnre than I deseryed, for I4h l
half a milkd to run away at frst. When'
I am camped'outeven now,alo.ne,strange
thqoughts of .~tat nocturnal 'horseman
come into Thto'my heat. If anyone had
told such a story to me t s~onld hamlly
have credited it. I mean that a man
should stick to his horse in that way
without~tgy other help than his sad~le
straps affrdle. His little mare was
very quiet, thbugh, and evidently at
tracted by the sound pf my,hmorse bells.
