At the morning session of the Independ
ent Order of B’nai B'rith. the resolution

Our enterprising merchant, D. Man
heini, returned from a ten days’ trip to
Tem Pahute yesterday. He speaks very
highly of miniug matters in that locality,
and Mr. M.’s practical experience of
eighteen years in mining camps leads us to
think tliut Tem Pahute will, in the near
future, add greatly to the prosperity of
Nevada. He states that he has never seen
a better defined ledge, or such quantities
of ore in sight, as he saw in the Wyandotte
Company's mine.

SCHOOL SPLINTERS,
Picked I'p In Our Wanderlusts Yes
terday.
Mrs. Atwood has 58, and Mrs. Wendell
52 scholars at present.
Tl (lamination of teachers at Virginia
City has been postponed until July next.
This is Miss Hardy’s first experience as
a teacher, but she handles the department
with the skill of an old veteran.
Fourteen new pupils have been added to
Mr. Hcanland’s department since opening,
and he now has a total of 42.
There are eight children attending Miss
Hardy’s department who are under the
age required by law. The Trustees will
take cognizance of the matter shortly.
The Primary Department, under Miss
Hardy, is making rapid progress. We
were shown some of the work of her pupils
yesterday, and it was really creditable.
An examination of 8,000 school children
in Boston reveals the fact that while eight
per cent, of the boys are color blind only
one per cent, of the girls are thus afflicted.
The new rule adopted by the Han Fran
cisco Board of Education in regard to ap
plicants for teachers’ positions is having
the effect of weeding out a number of in
competents.
The University of Pennsylvania, at Phil
adelphia, has decided to admit hereafter
women as well as men to its course of lec
tures on modern history, this being the
first step it has taken towards the educa
tion of the other sex.
Hereafter, every Friday afternoon will
be devoted to recitations, essays, etc., in
tho First and Second Intermediate and
Primary Departments. This is an excel
lent idea, pji it will accustom the children
to speak in public, and will add greatly to
their self-possession. The first of these ex
ercises was held yesterday afternoon.
A school paper is to be started by tho
scholars of Mr. Hcanland’s room, to which
all can contribute. It will bo read every
other Friday afternoon, and the work of
editing it will devolve on two pupils, who
will be changed every two weeks. The
initial number will bo under the super
vision of Miss May Ashiui and Miss Lou
Klobc.
Home days since we called attention to
the fact that Mrs. Atwood had more schol
ars than could be handled by any person
successfully, without a severe mental
strain. When writing tho article we were
unaware that it would apply equally well
to the departments presided over by Mrs.
Wendell and Miss Hardy. The number of
pupils in their rooms is entirely too large,
and the Trustees should, in justice to all
three of the lady teachers, secure tho ser
vices of another.

The Sentinel of yesterday morning
among its marriage notices contained the
following:
February C.—By Justice Cromer, John
Northcut to Mrs. Annie Jensen.
Thereby hangs a tale. Mr. John North
cut is from San Francisco, and everybody
unites in declaring him an exemplary
youug man, but just exactly how an ex
emplary young man could fall into the
matrimonial clutches of Mrs. Annie Jen
sen no one has endeavored to explain.
Mrs. Jensen is better known under the
sobriquet of Mrs. Annie Grimm, and for
three years has borne the relation of n wife
to Charley Grimm, who acts as usher at
the Opera llonso. Annie’s course4 in tin
said three years has not l>een that of a true
and faithful wife, for Charley claims that
she was married three times within that
period, which, if correct, is sufficient to
cause her board to be paid by tho State
authorities at Carson for a number of
years. Yesterday she- concluded to move
lier habitation to moro congenial quarters,
hut Grimm, learning of her iiiteulion,
caused a writ of replevin to bo issued,
charging her with endeavoring to cribhage
his property, which was served by Fred.
Gorman*, reinforced by Deputy Sheriff
Simpson. The gentle Annie tore up the
writ in Fred.'a face, and attacked Simpson
with a ferocity that caused that officer to
vneilate as he never vacilat. d before. The
rosult was that Annie was turned over to
Jim Ashley's tender mercies, and Grimm
Walked off with the furniture. The mat
ter will be adjudicated lawfully in a day or
two.

Much argument and oral explanation of
the mining law of the United Statds is al
ways incident to mining districts. The
Comm if* inner of the Land Office in Wash
ington has recently given an interpretation
to the Congressional Mining Law which
seems to bo in accordance both with tech
nical justice and plain common sense. A
mining claim is forfeited whenever the
assessment year is so nearly gone that the
required work cannot possibly be doue in
the time, and possession is not resumed
until the locator fully complies with the
law in these respects. A relocator who
takes possession before the locator’s year
expires can not be ousted l»y the latter
while holding in conflict with the law.
The only safe plan, therefore, is to make
sure that a full hundred dollars’ worth of
work has been put upon a claim in time to
prevent any risk of future trouble. If
this interpretation of the law is borne in
mind, and its provisions strictly lived up
to, it will save much annoyance, and per
haps litigation among miners; and those
who are holding claims in good faitli
should sec that they do not lut the time
pass in which to make good their assess
ment work.

Mrs. Gallagher, tlio new hostess of the
Cosmopolitan Hotel, on South Main street,
opened that establishment last night with
a dancing party. A large number of our
young ladies and gentlemen were present,
and the party was kept up until a late hour
this morning. It was a pleasant affair,
and was worthy the reputation of the pro
prietress of the Cosmopolitan, to whom
wo wish all manner of success.

Coroner Smith, yesterday afternoon, held

A laughable scene occurred yesterday
during the trial of Ehrenwcrth, in Justice
Cromer’s office. A witness held up a let
ter, which he declared would explain ‘‘ the
matter.” The lawyers, Justice and every
body else, took the letter iu turn, and
everybody turned it upside down in a vain
effort to decipher the contents. It was
written in Hebrew, and is not considered
' documentary evidence.”

Bennett Ehrenwert, charged with lar
ceny, from the fact that he had removed
goods from his store after being attached

There was a large crowd present, and there

art had driven an ox-team across the
plains. Nye used to get Stewart into a
party of gentlemen, and then invent a
story that he had encountered him on the
plains driving that team. Nye said that as
he was coining East on one occasion, lie j
saw a number of teams approaching, and
lie was excited by seeing a prodigious fel
low', lean and wiry, and between six and
seven feet high, with bis pants stuck in his
boots, and u tremendous whip, which he
was laying over the backs of the oxen. As
Nve* came nearer and looked at this ox
driver. he heard him cry out. as ho laid
the whip over the backs of the animals :
‘Whoa, Star ! Gee, Buck ! By God, I know
more than both of you ! ’ ”

The Reno "Gazette” attributes the tem
perance revival to (lull times. Hear it:
"That the times are dull is clearly noted
by the revival of temperance societies both
in this State and California. Our fellow
townsman H. B. Maxon organized more
lodges during the last two months than
could have been organized in six prosper
ous years. Washoe even has a prosperous
order, and night before last they had a
grand installation and a delightful dance.
This organization in Reno is very strong,
and threatens to become a positive suc

The People Want Proof.
There is no medicine prescribed by physi
cians, or sold by druggists, that carries such
evidence of its success and superior virtue as
Borchee’s German Syrup for severe Coughs,
Colds settled on the breast. Consumption, or
any disease of the Throat and Lungs. A proof
of that fact is that any person afflicted can get
a Sample Bottle for 10 cents, and try its su
perior effect before buying the regular size at
75 cents. It has lately been introduced in this
country from Germany, and its wonderful
cures are astonishing every one that use it.
Three doses will relieve any case. Try it.
Sold by all druggists.

A (•(‘■■tic Hint. #
In our style of climate, with i\s sudden
changes of temperature—rain, wind and sun.
shine often intermingled in a single day—it is
no wonder that our children, friends and rela
tives are so frequently taken from us by neg
lected colds, half the deaths resulting directly
from this cause. A bottle of Boshee's German
Syrup kept about your home for immediate
use, will prevent serious sickness, a large doc
tor’s bill, and perhaps death, by the use of
throe or four doses. F.-*r curing consumption,
hemorrhages, pneumonia, severe coughs, croup
or any disease of the throat or lungs, its suc
cess is simply wouderful. as your druggist
will tell you. German Syrup is now sold in
every town and village on this continent.
Sample bottles for trial, 10 cents; regular wise,
75 cents. d24-eow
