Indians are not ao common now u. the
territory M they used to be. At leant
they do not at tu. k the primary schools

they used to. It is very rare now that
hostile Indians come into the principal
towns and carry off a female seminary.
If they do. the papers hush it up ko that
the effete east knows nothing of it.
I have read this winter in the New
York paper, at eight different times, of
the same kind of case, viz.. of a mother
walking the streets, homeless und hun
gry, all night, with a sick baby hi her
arms, and being found in the morning
by the police with the little ("ii-se iu her
arms. Crazed by gTief and suffering,
driven even from the meanest shelter,
with a little sick child wrapped in an
apron, the daylight found her, with dry
eyes and disordered brain, walking the
treets. with Jay Gould and Russell Sage
carrying the poor little starved body of
her dead baby wrapped tn a calico rag.
For eight years I Ured in Wyoming
territory, but 1 never heard there of a
case tike this. Possibly we wore our
trousers in our boots then the men, I
tuean and we used navy tobacco per
haps to excess, but we drew the line at
starving little children to death because
tluiir mothers couldn't pay the rent by
making shirts at seventeen cents a dozen.
I know that in early days Wyoming
bad some crude ideas, but she has out
grown them a good deal now. I recall,
especially, some of her statesmen. We

he is iu I iter condition physically than
I am at present. He was a plain, self
made man who had risen to be foreman
ot a tie chopper'sjeamp in the mountains,
tnd by not saying anything nt all except
to issue his orders, and at table ask some
one to "please pass thou molasses," or
something like that, which did not
arouse political hostility, he was chosen
as a reserved and non-committal candi

He went w ith the other memls'rs of

he did the same, hut it leaked out after

he said, as he dropped a copy of "Velvet

It is a good story, and designed, as 1
judge, to illustrate in a forcible manner
the extreme rarity of the air more than
the extreme rarity of the story itself.
The flora of Wyoming is diversified
and beautiful, though on the plains it is
almost odorless. Several kinds of cactus
are found either of which, w hen in full
bloom, an Mffy beautiful. The Turk's
bend cactus is about the size of a base
latll. and ij better tixed for protecting it
self than any other plant I know of ex
cept the electric plant. It has a purple
blossom about the size of a Canadian
quarter or an English bob. There is a
cactus also which looks like a green
waffle, set up on edge. It has a beauti
ful blossom, varying from a blood orange
to a light ecru or straw color, a id a big
bed of these plant look, uhoil in full
bloom, leauliful enough for i bridal

Burlington, like Rock Island, has been
progressing of late indulging in im
provements in the nature of paved streets
and other characteristics of a modern,
sctive. ambitious city. All this of coume
is much to the chagrin of the croaker,
whose motto is "pull back." Burlington
had a municipal election on Monday, and
the croaker, which in this case is synony
mous with obstructionist a man who
fortifies himself behind it junctions
showed his hand and now he wishes he
had kept it iu his pocket. There wasn't
enough left of him when the ports closed
to fill a market basket, and the Burling
ton OaMHl all ud. to the election as a
"fflumph for progress, and a Waterloo
for old fogyism; no fences will be built
around Burlington or crass seed sown on
her business streets this year, thank yon,
the way to pave is to pave so say the
people." If there should be any occa
sion for it Rock Island will do pretty
nearly the same set that Burlington did
when election time comes around. But
there will not likely be any necessity for
it It common sense guides the nomina
tions of both parties there will he no oh
