VOue, to sit and study his face, -would have said that his soul was so lost in melancholy that ' he didn't care whether the sun set at noon or stayed up until 7 o'- clock. He entered the ladies' sit-Uing-'room of the Central Depot, walked to a woman whose hus- 1 band had left the room about ten minutes previously, and calmly inquired : "Madam, your husband went 2 out to see the river, didn't he?" "Yes why?" she asked, turn ing pale in an instant. "He was a tall man, wasn't he?" "He was," she replied; rising up ana turning still paler. "Had red hair!" "He had oh! what has hap pened?" "Weighed about one hundred ' and eighty pounds?" "Yes yes where is he where is my husband!" she exclaimed. "Couldn't swim, could he?" "He's drowned my husband 'is drowned!" she wailed. "Had a silver watch-chain?" continued the stranger. "Where is my husband where is the body!" she gasped. "Do not get excited; madam. Did your husband have on a gray suit?" "Yes oh ! my Thomas! my dear Thomas!" "And stoga boots?" VLett-me see him let me see him!"1 she cried. '"Come this way, madam, but do not get excited. There, is that your husband across the street at that peanut stand?" "Why, yes, that's him; that's my husband!" she exclaimed, joyful ly, "1 thought you said he was . drowned." "NO madam, I did not. 1 saw him buying peanuts, and I be lieved it my duty to say to you that peanuts are not healthy at this season of the year." He sailed softly out, and she stood there and chewed her para sol and stared after him as if he were a menagerie on wheels. Practical Joking. A sad tragedy occurred near Penn Yau, N. Y., recently. Ed ward Cole and Gen: Pierce, brothers-in-law, were inmates of the same dwelling, and a harmonious feeling had always existed be tween the two iamilies. About 10 o'clock on that evening, Cole . came home from his father's, where he said he had been spend ing the evening. Being very fond of practical jokes, he con . eluded to play one on Pierce and , family. Accordingly, when he arrived at the house, he knocked w at the door, and in response to . "Who's there?" a disguised voice , said, "Your money or your life." Failing to obtain admittance he rwent to the rear of the house, re - moved his boots and climbed up , on a shed and. raised a window and entered. Pierce, hearing ' him, called from below, "Don't you come in here or I will kill you." Cole paid no attention but ,. entered the window and started for the stairs. Pierce met him at the top of the.stairs when they clinched, and Pierce being armed with a butcher knife, ran it . through Cole's throat, servering the jugular vein. Cole exclaim ed "You have killed Edward Cole! ' My poor wife and children !" and , expired. A sad ending to a prac tical joke. MELI&SA'S QUANDARY. 1 declare my head seems bursting, and my brain iu quite a whirl, These men a?e so provoking 'tis a plagu to be a girl J I don't object to bellehood, to beauty, or to beaux ; But, then, 'tis so preplexing when th horrid things propose. Papa is looking curious, and mamma is looking wise, There's a world of awful warning in Aunt labby 3 blinking eyes. I've a score or more of lovers, every, age and style and kind ; I am twenty and unsettled, for I can't make up my mind. There's that charming Captain Hawkins with his untamed, eagle glance- Such a hero in the saddle, such a partner in the danco .' Such shoulders and such whiskers! I ador ed him for a week. And then it somehow struck me he had ra ther too much cheek. Then the famous Lawyer Morton who's so witty and so keen, Who says so many clever things I don' know half they mean, Who studies me as though I were some problem Ielt unread : But I couldn't have the lawyer, he has quite, quite too much head. Ihen my dreamy poet-lover, with his starry, shiuing eyes, And his fortuue floating somewhere in the misty luture skies, They say a poet's worship is each wo man s secret coal; But I'm of "earth, still earthy." he ha rather too much soul. And there's well, yet another, who is no ble, brave and true, Who wooswith simple earnestness as sim ple men will woo. Wh ose love is deep and tender of his very life a part; But I 'twere shame to listen;. he has realk too much heart. For I must have lace and diamonds, and I must have style and dash. And what are hearts, or minds, or souls. if folks are minus cash ? I vow I'll take old Golding, though they say he s eighty-two; But he's worth at least a million, and what better could I do? His mind is getting shaky, so he won't be overwiso, And 'tis time his soul was tending to a home beyond the skies; He has neither heart nor liver, and his lungs are far from strong Poor man ! he quite adores me, and he can't adore me long. In the Detroit Police Court. IBRANDY AND BLANDLY. "Really, now," smiled .Robert Clark, as he came out, "mere drink of brandy no harm done rather unfortunate." "Do you plead guilty?" asked the court. "Ah! really, no case against me," smiled the prisoner. "This is mere form, you know my hat good by much obliged. "Come back here!" exclaimed his Honor, "lhere! now turn around here, air!" "Ah ! supposed you were through," smiled the prisoner. "I am in something of a hurry, and I'd like to be off." "Well, sir, I won't detain you long. Chalk him off for thirty, Bijah, and see what's in that bundle under his arm." "But really you know you can't you know," said Robert, bowing and smiling. But they did. MA.TILDA PITCH Was tall and dignified and mvs terious. When the warrant had been read she desired to make a statement, and when leave was granted she wished to whisper it in his Honor's ear. "Can't allow any such thing," he replied. "If you have any thing to say speak right out in meeting and let everybody hear. "I feel faint," she said. "Well, Bijah can bring out the hartshorn; this case must go on, even if 1 have to fan you with the warrant." "Do they say I was drunk?" she asked. "They do." "When?" "Last evening." "Where?" "On the street." "What time?" "Ten o'clock." "Well, I suppose I'll have to go up," she continued ; "but I want it understood that I'm to have oysters for breakfast and hot bis cuit for supper. I'm only a feeble woman, bnt I know my rights, andhali stick up for them." Her ticket said "thirty days." ' A RAISING BON. "Henry Lee, did you beat your poor old mother?" asked the court of a boy sixteen. "No, sir, and she lies if she said I did!" answered the boy. "That's right, Henry, always speak up promptly." replied the court, "I'll make it sixty clays for your promptness. A Curious Show. Out in Denver there is an ex hibition now being given which is of more than usual interest showing as it does the wonderful capabilities hitherto lying cior mant. and now brought out by skilled training, of wild animals from which nothing of the kind could resonable be expected. 1 h following from the Denver Tri bune will give our readers some idea of what these animals can do, and of what we may expect in the future. The eik, an animal from which nothing has ever before been ex pected, except, indeed, tender steaks and juicy roasts, has been traiued to do some of the finest jumping ever witnessed, and to perform many interesting tricks The bunalo call has been in tram ins: only a short time, and does not come out strong yet. His in telligence and ambition have not yet been sufficiently aroused. He does, however, obey the word of command, and will run around the ring to order, and lie down when told if lie happens to feel like it. The wonderful thing about the exhibition is that Bartholomew will control direct nine horses two goats and a bufl tlo calf, put them through a great variety of movements and make them per form mauy wonderful tricks, sim ply by the word of command never touching them, and having not even a halter on them. He will stand in the centre of the ring and call to a horse stand mg with the others, by the side of the tent, to come to him. and the animal will respond with the alacrity of a voter invited to take drink. And the horses have leen trained to do varous things; win raise the lids of boxes with meir noses, and take out any ar ticle found therein; have been taught to di-stingruish colors and will as directed, select ared, white or blue flag, and carry the same to their master. They will step to music, mark, time, and waltz. keeping perfect time, Bartho lomew expects to put them though the galop shortly. Two of them have been trained to take positions on opposite ends of a long plank, placed over a block three or four feet high, and there will see-saw with as much grace, and seeming: ly with as much zest, as two tru ant school-boys. Thev will roll barrels, fire pistols, and imitate man in almost everything except akmg whiskey, and playing poker. The two goats will lump upon their respective horses and as the horses gallop rapidly around the ring will turn around and change horses, as readily as Independent newspapers change position or parties. The most wonderful thing is the drill. Bartholomew will call his nine herses out by name make hem fake their position accord ing to size, and then make them march by company front, in pla toon, and in file, make them wheel and countermarch, and make them move in quick step and double quick. He will teach them the mauual of arms and the artillery practice next. And to wind up one acts as orderly-sergeant and dismisses the rest. It must be remembered that through all th's the animals are all loose, not a rope or halter on any of them and are managed entirely by word of command. At the command "come here," "go get that," "march" and so on, they start as promptly as a small boy in a well regulated family, when his stern parent tells him to go after an armful of wood or a pail of water. If Bartholomew should tell one of his horses to climb a greased pole, we believe the animal would at least make the attempt. As this exhibition goes East, the people well learn that rich assays, mag nificient mining schemes, big beets, enormous turnips and large stories are not the only wonder ful things that come from the Rocky Mountain region. A friend of ours who has been married about a year, speaking of babies, says : The delight of the days the torment of the nights elegant in full dress but horrible in dishabille beautiful on the smile, but maddening on the yell exquisitely in place in the nur sery, but awful de trop in the parlor, theatre, or railroad car the fountains of all joy, and some thing else the well-spring of de light, and the recipients of un limited spankings the glory of "pa" the happiness of "ma" who wouldn't have 'em? One-third of the rural laborers in Prussia, and one-half in Russia are females. PROFESSIONAL CARDS. P. J. WALKER, Attorney and Counselor at Law, Office in the Court-House, YUMA,.. A. T. ap 3-tf. WM.
