I liave just.lought some more real es
tate. It occurred in Oakland, Cal. I
had the assistance of a prophet. I hope
the loss will not overbalance the prophet
It occurred in this waj: A prophet on a
bicycle, who was liard up, came to Oak
land suddenly a few weeks ao and be
gan to ride up and down on a two
wheeler and for to warn the people to
MEETING MR. J. SIDES,
flee to the high grounds and also the
wrath to coine, for, he said, the waters
of the pvat deep would arise at about
the iuKldle of the month and smite the
people of Oakland and slay them, and
float the pork barrels out of their cellars.
and fill their cisterns with people who
Eiieered at the prophecy.
This prophet in this way did a good
business. Ho attracted much notice,
and had all he could do as a prophet for
several weeks. Many Oakland people
were frightened, especially as Wiggins,
the great intellectual Sahara of the
prophet industry, also prophesied a high
wave which would rise at least above
the bills at the Palace hotel in San Fran
cisco. With the aid of these two gen
eral, middle weight prophets, I was en
aided to secure some good bargains in
corner lots and improved property in
Oakland at 10 per cent, of the estimated
value. In other words, I am putting my
limited powers as a prophet against those
of Professor Wiggins, tho painstaking
and gifted ass of Canada, and the bicycle
prophtt of the Pacific slope. I am will
ing to stand or fall by the result.
As a prophet I hare never attracted
attention in this country, mostly because
I have been too busy with other things.
Also because there wr.s so little prophe
sying to be done that I did not care to
tike hold of the industry; but I have
ever been ready to purchase at a great
discount the desirable residences of those
who contemplated a general collapse of
the universe, or a tidal wave which
would wipe out the general government
and co-er with a placid sea the mighty
republic which God has heretofore, for
some reason, smiled upon. Moreover
can hardly believe that the Deity would
commission a man to go out over Cali
fornia on a bicycle to warn people, when
a few red messages and a standing no
tice in The Examiner would do the
work in less time. Reasoning in this
manner with a sturdy logic worthy of
my rich and unctuous past, I have se
cured some goc J trades in down town
property, and will await the coming
devastation with a calm and entirely un
California at this season of the year is
a miracle of beauty, as most every one
knows. Nature heightens the effect for
the tenderfoot by compelling him to cross
the Alpine heights of the Sierra Nevada
mountains and freeze to death in the cold
heart of a enow blockade. Thus, weather
beaten and sore, lie reaches the rolling
green hills and is greeted with the rich
dor of violets. I submitted to the in
sults of a tottering monopoly for a week,
In the heart of the winter, and, tired and
sick at soul, with chilblains on my feet
and liniment on my other lineaments. I
burst forth one bright morning into this
realm of eternal summer. The birds
sang in my frozen bosom. I shed the
gunny sack wraps from my tender feet
even as a butterfly or a tramp bursts his
bull in the spring, time, and I laughed
two or three coarse, outdoor laughs,
which shook the balmy branches of the
tall pomegranate trees and twittered in
the dense foliage of the magnolia.
The railroad was very kind to us at
first. That was when we were buying
our tickets. Later on it became more
harsh and reproached us at times. Con
ductors woke us up two or three times
in the night to gaze foudly on our tickets
and look as if tbey were sorry they ever
parted with them. On the Central Pa
cific passengers are not permitted to give
their tickets to the porter on retiring.
You must wake up and converse with
the conductor at all hours of the night,
and bold a lantern for him while he
slowly h;ells out the hard words on your
ticket. I did not like this, and several
times I murmured in a querulous tone
to the conductor. But he did not mind
it. lie went on doing the behests of his
employer, and in tint way endearing
himself to the great adversary of sou's.
I said to an official of the road: "Do
- you not think this is tt worst managed
road in the United SuXes always ex
cepting the Western North Carolina rail
road, which is an incorporated insult to

said, "on what standpoint from which

and third mortgages, which would natu

you not thii.k we were managing the
business with a steady hand and a watch
I said I certainly would. I then
wrang his hand softly and stole away, as
he also began to do the same thing.
At Reno we had a day or two in which
to observe the city from the car plat
form whilst waiting for the blockade to
be raised. We could not go away from
the train more than COO feet, for it might
start at any moment. That is one beauty
about a enow blockade. It entitles you
to a stop over, but you must be ready to
hop on when the train starts. I improved
the time by cultivating the acquaintance
of the beautiful and picturesque outcasts
known as the Piute Indians. They are
a quitft, reserved net of jeople, who, by
saying nothing, sometimes obtain a rep
utation for deep thought. I always envy
anybody who can do that. Such men
make good presidential candidates. Can
didates, I say, mind you. The time has J

come in this country when it is hard to
unite good qualifications as a candidate '
with the necessary qualities for a suc
cessful official. - I
The Piute in March or April does not
go down cellar and bring up his gladiola
or remove the fronting from the side of
bis villa. lie does not mulch the aspar
agus bed or prune the pie plant or rake
the front yard or salt the hens. lie does
not even wipe his heart broken an neg
lected nose, lie makes no especial
change in his great life work, because
spring has came, lie still looks Eerious
and like a man who is laboring under
the impression that he is about to be
come the parent of a thought. These
children of the Piute brave never ma
ture. They do not take their places in
the history or the school readers of our
common country . - The Piute wears a
bright red lap robe over bis person, and
generally a stiff Quaker hat with a leath
er band. His hair is very thick, black
and coarse, and is mostly cut off square
in the neck by means of an adz, I judge,
or possibly it is eaten off by moths. The
Piute is never bald during life. After
he is dead he becomes bald and beloved.
Johnson Sides is a well known Piute
who had the pleasure of meeting me at
Reno, lie said he was a great admirer
of mine and had all my writings in a
scrap book at home. lie also said that
he wisheu I would come and lecture for
his tribe. I afterwards learned that he
was an earnest and hopeful liar from
Truckee. lie had no scrap book at alL
Also no home.
Mr. Sides at one time became quite
civilized, distinguishing himself from his
tribe by reading the Dible and confining
his shirt tail to the narrow confines of a
pair of cavalry trousers instead of giv
ing it to the irresponsible breeze as other
Piutesdid. lie now established an hotel
up the valley in the Sierras and dixrided
to lead a life of incusrrv. lie built au
hostelry called the Shack-de-Poker-IIunt-us,
and advertised in The Carson Ap
peal, a paper even the editor of which,
Mr. Sam. Davis, says fills him with won
der and amazement when he knows that
people actually subscribe for it. Very
soon Piutes began to come to the Shack
to spend the heated term. Every Piute
who took The Appeal saw the advertise
ment, which went on to state that hot
and cold water could be got into every
room in the house and that electric bells,
baths, silver voiced chambermaids, over
charges ai.d everything else connected
with a first class hotel could be found
at this place. So the Rute people locked
up their own homes and, ejecting the
cat, thev spat on the fire and moved
to the new summer hotel. They took
their friends witn them. 1 hey had r.o
money, but they knew Johnson Sides
and they visited him all summer.
In the fall Mr. Sides closed the house.
ana taking a rubber cuspidor, with a
capacity of t wo gallons, he resumed his
blanket and went back to live with his
tribe. When the butcher wagon came

of sale, and in the language of Sol Smith
Russell, "Good reasons given for sell
Mr. Sides had been a tern ranee man
now for a year, at least externally, but
with the humiliation of this great finan
cial wreck came a wild desire to flee to
the maddening bowl, having lx?en nion-
keving with the madding crowd all
summer. So silently he concealed a bot
tie of Reno embalming fluid and secreted
himself behind a tree, where he was
asked to join himself in a social nip. lie
had hardly wiped away an idle tear with
the corner of his blanket and replaced
the stopier in bis tear Hun when the
local representative of the U. G. J. E. T.

life could save it. At this critical stage
Mr. Davis, of The Appeal, came to his
aid, and not only gave him the support
and encouragement of his columns, but
told Mr. Sides that he would see that the
legislature took speedy action in remov
ing his alcoholic disabilities. Through
tlie untiring efforts of Mr. Davis, there
fore, a bill was framed "whereby the
drink taken by Johnson Sides, of Neva
da, be and is hereby declared null and
On a certain day Mr. Davis told him
that the bill would come up for final pas
sage, and no doubt pass without opposi
tion, but a sack would have to be raised
to defray the expenses. The tril. began
to collect what money they had and to
sell their grasshoppers in order to raise
Johnson Sides and his tribe gathered
on the day named and seated themselves
in the galleries. Slim old warriors with
firm faces and beetling brows, to say
nothing of having their hair roached, but
yet with no flies on them to sjeak of, sat
in the front seats. Large, corpulent
squaws, wearing health costumes, se
cured by telegraph wires, listened to the
proceedings, not knowing anything that
was going on any more than other people
do who go to watch the legislature. Fi
nally, however, Sam Davis came and told
Mr. Sides that the bill had passed and that
he was now pure as the driven snow. I
saw him last week, but it seemed to me
it was about time to get some more spe
cial legislation for hitu.
Once Mr. Davis met Mr. Sides on the
street and was so glad to see him that
he said, ' Johnson, I like you first rate,
and would always be glad to see you.
Whenever you can, let me know where
The next week Sam got quite a lot of
telegrams from along the railroad for
the Indians ride free on account of their
sympathies with the road. These tele
grams were dated at different stations
along the way, and were hopeful and
even cheery, all being marked "col
lect." They were about as follows:
"Sam Davis, Carson, Nev:
"WinnemTJCca, Nev., March 31, '0.
"I am here.
Every little while, for quite a long time,
Mr. Davis would get a bright, cheery
telegram, sometimes in the middle of the
night when be was in bed, assuring him
that Johnson Sides was "there," and be
would go back to bed cheered and soothed
