A legend has it that 8t. Patrick was born so near the hour of midnight, March 8-9, that it could not be deter mined which day should be celebrated in honor of the great divine, and that the Irish settled the matter with logic by addiug the two dates and making the 17th the proper day to honor the gentleman who banished the snakes from the "ould sod." What a touching illustration of the Christian spirit it must be when Vicer oy Alexieff lines up his troops, and after each one has takeu a solemn oath to ki 1 as many of his foes as bis skill and strength will permit, to prououuce a benediction over them before relir ing for the night. With all their Christianity it is evident that the Rus sians are not following very closely the text of scripture which says: "Ven geance is mine, saith the Lord, and 1 will repay it." oc According to reports published in I Denver papers, tbe American Standard Miuing company, owning great proper ties at South Mountain, has let men in on the bed rock sufficiently to supply ali the capital required for develop ment and the manager will soon be on the ground to push the work.

The Catholic Ladies know just how to frame up the most delightful enter tainments ever given in this old town, aud last night they were at their best. The St. Patrick's ball given by them was universally pronounced to be the red letter social event of the season, attended by the largest number of peo ple. It was altogether enjoyable from the opening hymn—"America," sung by a large chorus -until it broke up at daylight this morning, the dances be ing interspersed with Irish national soug8, solos and jig dances, Mrs. P. McCabe takiug a conspicuous part in the latter and being ably assisted by Johu C. Connors, Cou McKinnon, Michael Jordan and others. Kathleen Mavourneen, sung by a fine chorus, charmed the house. The gracious lad ies who made up the reception commit tee took especial care that everybody who attended was made to feel at home and the lady floor managers tried to see that everybody shared the pleas ure of the dances. It is conceded that the annual balls on St. Patrick's day shall always hereafter be in charge of the Catholic ladies and to be hoped that the present crop of them loug retain their charms and graces. may R. 8.

He receives oysters and fish every Thursday, Caldwell's New Hotel. The enterprise of Mr Howard Sebree, Caldwell's wealthy banker, has provided that prosperous town with an elegant and commodious hotel,tbe Saratoga which was opened for business, with ap propriate ceremonies, a ball and ban quet,on the 15 iustaut, with Mr. Ralph Sebree as manager. While uot as gor geous or imposing as the grand caravau sary which has doue so much to adver tise the neighboring town of Nampa, it is nevertheless very elegant aud com plete in modern equipments aud fur nishings. It amply fills a long felt waut iu Caldwell, which has heretofore beeu behind all the other growing aud flour ishing towus iu Southern Idaho iu its provisions for eutertaiuing the travel ing public. A good hotel aud a good newspaper are necessities in a town which aspires to prominence. Caldwell is not now behind any town of its size in Idaho in either of these particulars. To Test Idaho Game Un. Spokane sportsmen are back of the fight to break the Idaho game law and are busily casting about to find where they stand in the case peuding before Judge Morgan of the supreme court at Rathdrum. It is the case of L. F. Wil liams of Spoaane, who was arrested nearly a year ago for fishing iu Idaho without a license. He was put up as a willing scapegoat by the sportsmen of that city, to whom tbe game law of Idaho has loug beeu a subject ouly thought of with pain. The law is being tried on its consti tutionality because it discriminates be tween the citizens witbiu the state as well as against those from beyond its limits. Women vote iu Idaho, but tbe law ouly requires males over the of 12 years to pay a license of $1 a year to fish or huut small game, of other states must pay $5 for the same privileges, and must pay $25 to huut big game. The game wardens have been partic ularly aotive in pursuit of Spokaue people making excursions into their domains, ana a number of the local sportsmen have banded together to test his power. Mr. Williams was duly arrested according to the program and the case brought before Judge Morgan. age I itizeus Patriotic Japanese. While the Russiaus represent the least desirable class of the Caucasian race, the Japanese are the most intel ligent aud progressive of the Mongolian people. Those who have come over to this country and found employment as section hands on the railroads and in other menial work should not be taken as a type of the Mikado's subjects. The people generally are of an artistic temperament, while the reverse will apply to the rank and file of the Rus sian people. They are also intensely patriotic, whioh cannot be said of many of their opponents. The Japanese are a libérty-loving, intelligent people, who are fightiug for their integrity as a nation, their fire sides aud their homes, while the Rus sians, mauy of whom are little better thau slaves, are wagiug war for the further extension of an empire which is already the largest on the face of the face of the earth. The sympathies of a majority of the people of this coun try will be with the Japanese.—Ward ner News. Rays of the Golden West. Notwithstanding the fact that Avery C Moore of Idaho county is a demo crat, with those peculiar Southern pro clivities which make him sometimes a rather ridiculous figure in the progres sive northwest, Nugget has to coufess a considerable liking for the talented young gentleman and the charm of his Give him manner aud his oratory, an opportunity to talk about Idaho and he always enthuses and says nice things. Mr. Moore is now down in middle Tennessee, attending to some mining interests, and at Columbia has had something to say. Listen to this from the Maury County Democrat: Mr. Avery C. Moore of Idaho, who is iu the city this week on miuing busi ness, has some very interesting things to say of the "golden west," its re sources aud its present aud future greatness. He is pleased with Middle Tennessee and quick to admit it, but when the Democrat asked him to say something about Idaho he immediate ly forgot all about Tenuessee, aud even Alabama, where Mr. Moore was mat - ried. "One cannot but admire this beauti ful section." he said, "as one must ad mire the blue grass section of Ken tucky, but you must not be impatient with me when I say that Idaho is favor ed by nature above any other state iu the Union. The richest laud on the American continent is that of the beautiful Camas Prairie in my home county of Idaho. The farmers who live there have never known failure, aud they produce wheat crops of 50 bushels per acre. "Idaho has everything that is desir able except a solution for the negro problem," Mr. Moore continued. "My home city of Grangeville, a rapidly growing and very prospérons city of 2,000 people, iu the heart of a rich agri cultural and miuing sectiou, is 18 miles from the nearest railroad—in this res pect without a parallel—aud yet its churches, schools and store would do credit to your own city of Columbia. Lewiston, the head of navigation on the Snake river, aud the metropolis of central Idaho, is said to have the most perfect climate to be found auywbere, aud yet Lewiston is in the same lati tude as Augusta, Maine, where the winters ore very severe. This delight ful condition is due to the warm winds from the Pacific ocean. The southern part of Idaho is being rapidly develop ed and the valleys reudered exceeding ly productive under irrigation. Idaho's fruit took the first prize at the receut National Irrigation Congress aud our apples, cautalope8, pruues aud pears are being marketed as far east us New York. "One county in Idaho produces half of the lead mined in the Uuited States and our wealth of gold, copper and sil ver is practically unlimited." Mr. Moore is an enthusiastic demo crat and is a member of the Idaho leg islature. He says that the West is uot partial to any particular candidate but that the delegation to St. Louis will be disposed to support a candidate acceptable to New York. He is confi dent of democratic success nationally, aud says the party has an even chance iu Idaho. A number of Columbia citizeus are interested with Mr. Moore iu Idaho mines and he will remain in the city several days longer. a crop average Don't Swear. Young man, dou't swear. There is no occasiou for it outside of a printing office, where it is useful wheu the paper is behind. It also comes in bandy in proof-reading, and is indispeusible when the ink works badly and the press begins to buck. It is sometimes brought into use when the foreman is mad, and it has been known to remove the tired feeling of the editor when he looks over the paper after it is printed. Outside of a printihg office it is a fool ish habit.—Nyssa Progress. Notice to Creditors. Estate of ELNA WILSON, Deceased.
