Wednesday, Oct. tO, 1880. TBI /OKI •* BttrHCß. Some weeks ago, John Mackay vu sittiog in the do old A Carjy office reading about tbe "Jumping Frog of Calaveras,'* when the idea occurred to him that torn* >ueb a trick would be a eplendid thing to ring in on Maurice Hoefljcb, the mining expert, iloeflich is great oa offering to make bets and Mackay determined to care him of this habit. One day be saw Hoeflich on the stoop playing with a big grasshopper which he was teaching to jamp, it could already jump 23 feet, and it wasn't long before he remarked to Mackay: "I'll bet two tollara dot von cand find a hinsect to r«eet him.' Mackay bet ten doflan that he could beat it and Hoeflich raised to twenty dollar* at once. The bet was closed at these figures and Mackaf said be would have his hopper there in a day or two. He sent a trusted emissary down to Carson Valley to secure a contest ant for the winged steed of Hoe flich. The man spent a weok in Carson Valley catching boDpers. lie finally telegrapbo<l Aat h« ba<l caught four thousand and put them through their paces. The belt gait bad was 17 J feet, lie doubted If a bigger jumper could be secured. The Bonanza King telegraphed to bring him up anyway. He soon ar rived with a do sen hoppers, and Maekay gate them quarters in bis room, each one occupying a cigar box. Every morning they were taken out and put through their paces. It wss impossible, how. ever, to get one to jump over IB foet, though fed all sorts ot invigo rating diet. Mr. Maekay wu iu deaptiir, but one morning a hopper sniffed at a bottle of ammonia on the table and immediately skipped 30 feet. After a few experiments the jumps were incredible. Next day Mackay told Hoeflich he was ready for Che match. Tho expert was on band at 9 o'clock, an hour before the time, with his pet hopper. While ing he noticed the bottle of ammo nia, and as be was examining it, Bridget, tho old faithful domestic, came in with: " Don't be techin' that numonia, Mr. Hoeflich: It's to make me master's hoppers sprightly. Hoeflich pumped the domestic and soon know all about Mackay's game. A light broke on Hoeflich, and grabbing the bottle he rushed to a drug store, and throwing away the ammonia ordered it filled with chk>- • toform. In ten minutes ho was back, and leaving the bottle where he found it, got out of tho plaoe as fast aa he could. Mackay soon ar rived with half a dosen mining su. perintendente whom he had in. vited up to see bim have some fun with Hoeflich. They were hardly aeated before Hoeflich came la with the hopper in a box under his arm. " I vash a leetle late, Mr. Mackay, but I am here nut de hopper and de coin." He laid down hia money, which waa promptly covered. " Anybody elae vant to pet?" Joe Stewart laid down one ban. dred dollars. John Kelley put up fifty dollars. Warren Sheridan stepped in for two hundred dollars. Hank Smith put up a like amount. Sam Jones had only aixty dollars, but he put it up. Then a few got Into a corner of the room and concluded it waa a ■hams to rope Hoeflich in that WW and many agreed to give the money back if they won it Mr. Mackay then bantered the expert to raise the pot eoe hud red aharea of Union Con. Hoeflich wrote an order on his broker and 1 remarked: "Darts# no Unite to d« bet*, ebentiemen; dejcoio •peaks.'' Nearly entry nan doubled hie bet, and then Mackajgot behind Sam Jonee and let hie hopper miff of the ammonia bottle which held Uoefltoh'e chloroform. Time being called the hoppers were placed tide by side on the pi****, and at the word " Go" each Insect was touched on the back with a straw. Hoeflleh's hopper des cribed a ssmi*cirele in the air and scored 24 (bet Mack ay's gave a lasjr larch of (our inches and turned on it* back, folded its legs across its stomach and fell fast ssleep. Jones swore that you could hear it •note. Hoefltoh, walking back into the room, swept the coin Into a canvas bag, and liackajr wrote him *n order for the stock. Hoeiich went up town with his hopper under his arm leaving the others too astonished to speak. Presently Sheridan put the am. tuonia bottle to his nose and called Machat's Attention to the smell. " Chloroform by —I" Then the Mileeian woman who was the author of all the mischief appeared with a broom and an. nonnced that It was "swapea time," at which the crowd die peraed, each going in a different direction. As Mackay started for the Union shaft he restarted t »TUI Wtow llorfi* <l—d oaeer lack.' And to thle all hands inwardly agreed. MISCELLANEOUS. ! KINO COUNTY ROWM TICKET. THOI.MH. BtWW.
