A meeting of the board of water com

through which the connection with the
Humping station will be made, crossing
tlis east sida channel, this -winter, while
the mills are shut down and while labor
is cheap. There is now some
question as to the city's
owning the right of way. Some o: the
oouiamsioners think tbe route selected al
ready belongs to the city, while others are
inclined to balievs that the driveway from
tho mills to Main street across the wooden
bridge, i 9 the property of the mill men,
aud that portion of it which the system
will ocaupy will have to be condemned.
In the latter event, it will in no wise in
terfere with the roadway, as the tunnel
will be bails beneath and then covered.

JPltij the Sorrows of a Poor Old, Man.
Frank Bruner, a victim to ill luck, was
one of the specimens of dissolute humanity
who was fined $5 in the municipal court
yesterday, for celebrating the birth of '84
in too heavy draughts from that whioh
biteth like a serpent and stingeth like an
adder. He was allowed to go to his home
on the East Bide to get his money to liqui- \
date the claims of the blind goddess.
Subsequent developments show that he got
the money but unfortunately while on his
way to the halls of justice, as he passed a i
saloon some unwary customer stepped
out and Frank got a good strong
whiff from the odoriferous bowls j
within. That settled it. In he
went and the $5 which should have paid
his fine soon melted away and an hour
later Frank walked out "drunkern-a-biled
owl" and tumbled into an open sewer. He
narrowly escaped suffocation, bat was res
cued before asphyxiation had actually eo
ourred. A "holy sight" he was again oast
in durance and this morning will probably
not be allowed to get the wherewithal to
pay his fine. ..

£he Hair-Raisinz Becital of an Old
Hunter in the Canons of
[Rocky Mountain News.}
J. H. Harden, better known as "Buckborn
Joe," arrived in the city yesterday with a
wagon load of game shot in and near Bear
Creek canon. He says: "It was test Mon
day, and I was up Turkey. Creek canon on ;
the lookout for game. I saw fresh signs of
elk, and I climbed up a rock to take a look
around. I had to be awful quiet about it,
though, so's no* to skeer the game. Tbe rock
I clum wasn't above thirty-five feet high,
and I calkerlated that there wouldn't
be much danger of their getting si^hi
first. I got up to the top and looked
around long enough to satisfy iao that
there wasn't anything in sight. Than I started
to go down the other side. It was very steep
on that side, and I reached oat and caught
the limbs of a big spruce tree that stood up
against the side of the rock. I hadnt scarcely
more than done .this than my feet slipped
from under me, and I sprang out of? the
rock. My weight waa too much for the
limbs I had bold of, and I went down almost
as though I was lead, taking the limbs with
me. I didnt strike ground, th««rh, and
now, come to think it over, I vri9h I had. An
elk with seven-prong horns was hkiScg under
the rock in the shade of tlie spruce tree, aad
I fell square on his sbotdders.
•1 guess it would be hard to tell wtw> wa3
skeert the meet, me or tbe elk. 'The elk
started as though he was snot, ami this saved
me the trouble of dofef; anything of tba kind,
for he set back his head and brought them
big horns of his right square down on my kgs,
and held me there as fast as i/ I was fitted to
his back. The wits seemed sfceert oat of that
elk. He didn't seem to care where he went or
where I wanted him to go. Tarloey Creek
canon seemed to please him very well for a
little while, or until some dogs got after him.
He didn*t appear to have any regard for his
safety,, and seemed only looking for danger
ous places to run along. I wasn't afraid for
the elk, but when at times he skirted along
the edges of precipices, where the fall would
be anywhere from three to five hundred feet,
I was somewhat a /raid that the consamed
elk would loosen tLe grip of his horns on ray
"How far did you run?"
•1 didn't run at all. The elk did the run- '
I ling, and I lay just a? still as I could. Some- j
times when he would leap over a chasm I
would find my heart standing still, too."
"But how far did you go?"
"Well, we wenfe up to the head of Tnrkey
Creek canon at the start, a distance of about
ten miles, and then back again aud out inJo
Bear Creek canon. When the elk got out
into this canon he 9eetned ouly fresided up fur
the run, and only more anxious than ever ix)
fore for taking in the fine scenery thac the
tourists come out here to look at. I had
grown very tired of it, but this did not
trouble the elk."
"How did you escape?"
" Woll, you see as wo came down Bear
Creek canon, after a run of about twenty
miles in this canon, we almost run over my
14-year-old boy there, wbo was out hunting,
and as quick as a flash the lad sent a bullet
through the heart of the elk. Then we
stopped. I've reckoned it up, and if that elk
and I went a foot we went forty-five miles.''
Mr. Martin bore many evidences of tha
hardship he had undergone, bis face and
hands being literally flayed.
Grant In the Field.
[Ben: Perley Foore.]
Gen. Grant, while moving "on to Rich
mond," messed with the nine gentlemen on
his personal staff, dividing the expenses
among the ten, not in equal proportions er
actly, but in a manner that was satisfactory
to all. There was not the slightest attempt
at show or parade in tie furniture and
equipage. Everything was for use and
economy of trouble and space. The
crockery was scanty and of the plain
est, and the fare, though sufficient in (Quan
tity, was just as nomery as Vast at any
thrifty and careful mechanic. A chop, with
a cup of coffee, for breakfast; a bit of roast
beef, with potatoes and "hard tack," con
fronting a dish of pork and "greens" served
for the 5 o'clock dinner, which was concluded
without pastry or desert. A cap of tea and
a bit of bread and butter at 8:30 o'clock fin
ished up the day. The beds were amply
camp cote, some with and others without
mattresses; and all the toilet apparatus any
where visible were a few tin wash basins, a
moderate supply of towels, a bit of looking
glass and a horn comb. At the table neither
distilled liquor nor wine were permitted.
The general would not have either about him
for his own or others' use.
The inventory of the general's baggage
when be made his brilliant campaign in the
rear of Vicksburg is, I take it, well rGniem
bered—a briar-wood telescope and a tooth
brush. In what relates to personal ;i4orn
raent, and, outside of the necessity of eating,
personal comfort, he never enlarged bis pos
sessions. His three stars indicated his ex
alted rauk, but, to say nothing of the charm
which, in soldiers' eyes, these glittering marks
of rank possess. I doubt if thsre was a com
missariat officer in his army who was as
plainly clad as he. His clothes v.era worn
threadbare, and, despite the steady broshing
of his servant, they would have an uutidy
look, due, ao doubt, to the general's habit of
going everywhere and seeing everything for
himself. The general understands the rola
tion between cleanliness and godliness, but,
iv lias opinion, practically evinced, there is as
much of either in a flannel shirt an in one of
linen of drawing-room iuiiuaculateness.
He Wiil ZSever Eaow.
Presently tho hostess bewitched him into
letting the young ladies blindfold him; and
when they were quite sure he coal 1 not see,
Mr. Worthington felt the thrilling sensation
of a score or more of hot kisses on his quiver
ing lips. It was a joke that Mr. Worthing- j
ton enjoyed hugely, but as there was a sort of j
sameness about the kisses he concluded that i
they had all been the work of one ycungiady; j
and he was pretty sure he knew which young
lady it was. Indeed his wish was the father
cf his thought, and he went away with light
heart and springy step, bewildered by the in
toxicating delusion that the beautiful Miss
, the belle of the city, had showered
favors from her heart and lips upou him. He
will never know until these words meet his
eye that it was the little 5-year-old brother of j
the hostess whose kisses burned great holes in
his throbbing heart.
The German Watch Tra'le.
[Chicago Tribune.]
The clock and watch trade of Berlin has
grown to enormous proportions in. recent
years, aud in some of its departments the
German capital bids fair to lead the world. A
very large business is done in curious time
pieces designed to gratify capricious and
whimsical tastes —in watches set in coins,
ivory, gutta-percha, etc., and in clock cases
carved in fantastic shapes. For instance, one
can buy a clock in the form of a dog, the
face appearing among the ribs of the animal,
whose tail serves as a pendulum, while his
red tongue slides in and out at every tic-tac
