One of these days Tombstone will
put on its cowboy hat and take its
cowboy playthings and go up to the
sinful city by the sea where the San
Francisco Post is published and clean
out somebody in regular old-fashioned
stylo. lie is what the Post says of
our neighbor: "The temperance
movement is at a standstill in Tomb
stone," said the Rev. Joel Mc Whacker '
of that camp, in the course of conver
sation in the office of the Palace last
evening. "For a time I was interested
in it, and did what I could to further
it, but I confess that my best efforts
were nullified by the spirit of levity in
which they were rect ived. I am not
among those who believe that a
clergyman should be as one apart,
and it has ever been my aim to be a
man among men. Consequently I
have eschewed the sacerdotal in man
ner, dress and habits as much as pos
sible. It has always been my custom
to go about like other citizens, drop
ping into the theater when a good
show struck the town, and taking my
tod like a man at the bar when the
flesh was in need of a prop. A year
ago, however, there was some scandal
caused by the indiscretion of Deacon
Fawcett, who staggered visibly while
passing the plate one Sunday morn
ing. He also accused a crothcr of
contributing a counterfeit quarter,
and offered to wh;p him right there
in the middle aisle of the sanctuary.
We got him into the vestry and 'per
suaded him to go homo and to bed,
it being learned from his wild talk
tint ho had spent the previous night
at cards. The incident luovcd mo so
strongly, that in my sermon I in
veighed against the drinking habit,
and in my heat not only adjured the
congregation to abstain, but promised,
with all possible solemnity of voice
and manner, myself never again to
touch intoxicating liquors. Next day
the whole of Tombstone was laugh

"Why? Because every barkeeper

Teddy Solomon looked truly sad
hut night as he stood on the platform
of tlie Grand Central depot and
watched the train pull out that bore
his wife and babe from him to the Pa
cilic. He stood liko a man without
hope, watching tlie train until the
last glimmer of the red light on the
rear car hud disappeared in the tun
nel. Then he was. gently led away by
James W. Morrissey, the manager of
the Staudard, while that oily tongued
gentleman poured words of consola
tion into his ear.
The fair Lillian Russell, with her
pretty babe and a maid, had taken
her departure for San Francisco,
where Mi.-s Russell is to make her
debut with the Duff Opera company
in the opera of a "Trip to Africa," at
the Baldwin the9tre. Mies Russell
signed a contract the day previous
for an engagement of six months.
Mr. Solomon very reluctantly had
to agree and at once made arrange
ments to leave for London to-morrow,
while she made ready for her depart
ure for California.
Miss Russell dreaded a scene at the
depot, and she called Mr. Morrissey
to her aid. That accommodating
gentleman spent a couple of hours
with them and succeeded in infusing
some courage into Mr. Solomon. He
accompanied them to the depot, all
time relating his stock of new jokes,
which kept Miss Rustell in a good
humor, but they were wasted tiiion
"Oh, Mr. Morrisse;-." cried the fair
Lillian, "he was always so lond of the
baby. It's hard to take her away
from him. She is such a sweet little
"My dear Miss Russell," said Man
ager Morri.-ey, beseechingly, "think
only of the ovation that awaits you in
California. The people there are
wild for you. Tlie golden gate is wide
open ready to receive you. A brass
band will meet you. Why, my dear
Miss Russell, you will take the town
by storm. The house is already sold,
and ia a short time vou will be re
turning here loaded down wi.h Cali
foruia gold, you will have regained
your place as queen of the dudes, and
you need never leave New York City
again. You are only 2-i, and you are
growing prettier every day.
This eloquence dispelled all the sad
ness from Miss Russell's face, and bc
foic Mr. Morriss-ey had finished her
countenauee was wreathed in smik'S.
Ti.en they boardn.l tlie sleeping car,
and before they had to grow melan
choly :ig;iin the conductor cried "All
aboard !" and .Mr. Solomon only had
time to kiss his wife and say in a
husky voice :
"Good-bye, Lillian, darling. t know
you will be successful."
"Good-bye," returned Lillian. "I
trust you will not be seasick," and the
train began to move.
Just before leaving home Miss Rus
sell said: "I have met nothing but
misfortnne since I married Mr. Solo
mon. He has tried hard, but luck
was against him, so it was better for
us to part. He was a Joan, and may
bo so was I. Now I shall begiu life
over again, and begin right where I
did six years ago. I have never been
to San Francisco, but I think I will
be well received, from what Mr. Mor
risaey tells mc." Now York Star.
