Buffalo Bill appeared at the Grand
Oiicra House last evening, aud was greet
ed by tlui largest audience that ever wit
nessed his performance iu this city—
nearly two thousand people beiug in the
Hall. The play was a good one of the
kind, and abounded in striking scenes
and stirring incidents, which received
the unqualified applause of the large au
dience. Aller the close of the drama,
the Indians gave a dance, aud one of
them tried his hand at target-shooting
with bow and arrow, but seemed a little
excited and did not shoot very well. Buf
falo Bill, how ever, gave some splendid
exhibitions of marksmanship with his
handsome rifle, lie stood about twenty
live feet from the target, aud shot in vari
ous positions, including one backward
shot, witii the rifle pointing out between
his legs, ami one backward shot over
his shoulder, viewingthe mark by means!
of asmull looking-glass which he held in
his hand. He struck his mark nearly
every time, and his skill was ioudly ap
plauded.
This evening, at the Grand Opera House,
•Joaquin Miller's beautiful and romantic
drama, "The Dauites," will be presented
by an aide company under the manage

Ac.,
(From our regular correspondent.)
Paris, Oct. 10,1878.
Now that M. Krautz, the Grand chief
o, the Exhibition has hung up in the Vet.

which will lu due courue, he conferred

AND COSSIP IN RE
AWARDS— PARIE
II
Prom an artistic point
ot view the picture in sepia is all that
could be wished, and there is
not, at any
rate as yet, any ground of complaint
with regard to the fuiruesaaud the ability
with which the coveted originals of the
design are allot'ed. For the official hat
of the piize-takers is not, at present
made public, even if it be completed, nor
W.1I auy one have authority to announce
£!?". Tr ol i t * 11 'Scrutiny until the
diet of Octobe , the date now fixed for
the distribution of the awards. But it
satd that many amongst the exhibitors
are lll-pieased with the delay, inasmuch
as it will prevent the possible use to
them, during the present Exhibition, of
such awards as they may have wou. In
tending c stum* i>, who desire to buy
ol.or to give their orders to, iirize win
ners only, will have hut leu days during
which to exercise their patrouuge. In
the meanwhile they must play the part
or jurymen themselves, und must either
guess as best they can Urn probable dm
tribut ion ol the medals, or must leave
their good intentions unfulfilled. So ex
hibitors who, with sufficient or insuffi
cient reason, believe that they are destin
mV fur a J ,laCB "mongst the Imrealt of
1S7» are, I am to d, aggr aved that they
cauuot make use at once of their coming
adrertiseuieut; and 1 hear an amusing
anecdote of one enterprising tradesman
who place»« on Mm case a placard bearing
in small letters the word« "Expectation c?
obtenir ," and iu large one« the premature
announcement "La medalle d'or ." Then
again, a grievance is made out of the fact
that, as is only natural, the secret of the
ten or twelve thousand awards leaks out,
in many iustrauce«, from amongst the
two or three thousand jurymen, officials,
Äc., necessarily acquainted with the de
ii ions which have been i «ached.
There Is but oue Paris in the world,
and now is the time to see its best. The
weather is just cool enough to be iuvigora
tiug, and at no Lime since the opening of
the Exposition has the city been so full
of strangers. Americans and other
foreigners came here early in the sum
med by thousands but before "doing" ihe
Exposition preferred to take a little run
on the continent on elsewhere, iuteudiug
to return to Paris to finish up their sight
seeing under more favorable circum
stances cooler weather and
, reduced
prices. That they were di«appoiuted _
regards the latter it is ueediess lo say.
They couldn't go home without
11
seeing
the Exposition of course, so her,; they
are. The city is crowded. That is the
only word that expresse« it. Iu addition,
the people from the province« are liteially
pouring in. They wouldn't come in the
spring, because the Exposition was uu
finished, aud they didn't want the heat of
mid-summer. A walk through the city
or the Exposition will give one an
portuuity ot seelug.
It seems almost a mystery where so
many people find accommodations. A
prominent American arriving iu the city
the other morning went to nineteen
hotels before he could get accommoda
tions. Eyerything is in lull blast, aud the
doubtless doing a good
business iu every way. The theatres are
packed nightly, while it is impossible to
g«t admission to the Graud Opera House
without securing a ticket at least a week
in advance, unless by chance oue can be
procured from a ticket sharper at about
five times the regular piice. Cafe-, are
everywhere, aud are more thau well
patrouized They are geueraliy very
commodious inside, but always have a
large uumber of little round tables
tending iu some instances more thau halt'
way across the sidewalks. Here the peo
ple sit and «ip their coffee aud cognac
drink their beer aud watch the passers
by. As has been stated befoie,the "pour
baire" system has become as lucrative
that "garcous" are compelled to pay the
proprietor« for the orivilege of being
waiters at tbe cafe or th« Graud Hotel.
Oue said he geueraliy cleared two dellars
a day, exclusive of his board which was
furmshed him there. Of course the
amouuts required of the "garcous" de
ptmdrt upou the promiuence
of the cafe or restaurant in w
employed. The "pourbalre" system
one advantage at least the extra two or
t «ree sous are au incentive to the wait»r
to attend to lus business as rapidly as
}«4«ible.
There has been sent from Geneva to
Paris for the Exhibition, tbe model of a

Heavy Failure of Farmer«.

The failure of Frankliu He Heur

iest that has occurred iu that section for
yuars. They owned the largest farm in
Fayette county. It comprised 2.200acres.
The farm was to all appearance doiug a
lucrative business. A meeting of the
creditors takes place atCkillicothe to-day
Tbe liabilities exceed $120,000; the assets
will probably reach teuperceut. The
greater part of their indebtedness is to
the heir» of Starkey, a former well know n
farmer of Greenfield.

A Democratic newspaper published
at Sfcelbyville, Indiana, c«ines to us with
an aunouncemenr to the effect that a Re
publican named Joshua Adams has been
elected to a Common-Pleas Judgeship in
that neighborhood, and the assertion is
made that "Adams has not washed his
feet iu.ten years and has not received a
new idea in twenty." They have queer
notions of the Judiciary out West. It is
well enough, perhaps, to insist that a man
snould a sub at least one new idea every
twenty years, but what the washing of
feet has to do with th« administration of
justice in Indiana is beyond our compre
hension. In this part of the couutry we
think a judge is doing pretty well if he
keeps his hands clean .—Balt Gazolte.
