Johnson, of Livingston, came up last week and is interviewing the people in the interest of the Johnston Improved Leat Spring and head bottom. It is an invention of his own get-up and has many advantages over other springs. The spring is so arranged that it receeds the iarne at the head and foot as any other part of the bed. It springs only where the weight rests, so that a heavy person does not molest a light person lying on tLe same bed. He is meet ing with good success in introducing this valuable invention. -The entertainment, given by the Apollo Club, Friday evening last, was received hby a large and appreciative audience.

The duetr, quartettes and solos were well rendered al, showed that they had spent much time and pains in preparation. The entire company, and especially the ladies, without a inggle exception, are deserving of great praie; but M "s. Gen. Catlini ratier excelled. 1Her v'oice. is Vr.'y sweet a Id plessesss c.i"harII that no one tlhat listened could lail to ad mire. The intervals between the songs was filled in with instrumental music by Fred Marr with his zither, and Carl Stoll on the piano. The piano used on th, occasion was a Steinway & Sons No. 2, a weddingpresent to Mrs. R. S. Price, and is one of1 the finest instruments in the Territory. The music by Mr. Stoll showed skill and ability. The Club has cause to leel proud of the success of its first entertainment, and we have no doubt but a second one will be received by a larger house, though not more enthusias tic, judging from the repeated en core. "TWO SOULS WITH BUT A SINGLE THOUGHT, TWO HEARTS THAT BEAT AS ONE." The marriage of Mr. H. H. Barnes and Miss Alice S. Nichols, of this place, was cel ebrated Sunday morning, Dec. 21, 1884, Judge B. W. Badger, officiating. The af fair came off very quietly, only a few inti mate friends being present or apprised of the fact that it was to transpire. At the ap pointed hour the happy couple drove to the residence of the Judge, where the nuptial vows were exchanged. from whence they repaired to church. The bridal party and friends then drove to the Higgins Ilouse, where a sumptuous supper gotten up for the occasion was served. Mr. Barnes is one of the sterling men of our town, is an old tinier, a man of brilliant mind, line execu tive ability, and stands high in the estima tion of his fellowmen. Mis- Nichols, until lately. Superintendent of Public Schools, is principal of an institute, of her own found ing, for the education otf young ladies, is a woma nof great force of character, find learn. ing and a kind heart, and is universally es teemed. We extend congratulations. May the lives that have heretofore been devoted to the brightening of the pathway of others -but which are henceforth to hbe as one find in that union the pleasure and content ment which it has ever been their desire to give to those about them ; and may the sun shine of happiness forever radiate their home. THIEF CAPTURED. Friday evening last John T. Moore arriv ed in town with a thief whom he lodged in jail. He isa young man scarcely 20 years old and gives his name as Bill Johnson. lie is the lad who has been robbing so many cabins and sheep camps on Smith River valley during the past two months. He ad mits the the pilaginmg of the cabins of Dave Folsom, Len Lewis, Jamyes Morgan and J. P. Hillis, taking guns. money, clothes and other articles. His last thefts werecommnuit ted about a week ago at Morgan's when a party set out in pursuit. Mr. Moore struck his trail at Harston's cabin on Elk creek and followed it across the range to J. G. Picker ing's, the thermometer being down to 30 deg. below zero. Here he rested overnight and secured the services of James Chinny worth, who proved a good one for the work of pursuing. They followed the trail around through the foot-hills and down in to the valley and back to the mountains, night over taking them at Geo. Ballard's, on Deep creek. Accompanied by Mr. Bal lard they took the trail next morning and overhauled the miscreant at Potts & Harris on's ranch, on Grayson creek. He at first denied, but feeling the presence of a stal wart hand on his windpipe, confessed and brought forth some of the articles. When interrogated as to his motive, he said: "Meanness." As to what ought to be done with him, said : "I don't amount to much anyway, and I guess you'd better hauig me." It is believed that the dozen or more thefts committed during the past fall in the valley have been done by him. Mr. Moore deserves the thanks of the community for hunting him down and placing him in du rance vile. Ile has had his trial and been bound over to await the action of the grand jury.
