The St. Louis Times says: Officer Joe Norris arrested two men, named John Reed and Wm. J. Doyle, who engaged in a game of “draw poker" in company with a third party named David May, at a saloon on Fourth street. The appearance of the former two betrayed them to the suspicion of the offiicr. On inves tigating the antecedents of the gen tlemen, he found that they bad just beaten May out of the round sum of $1,000. They Were brought to the Four Courts and searched. On the person of Davis, sewed in the lining of his coat, on the left side, was found A mysterious machine, con necting by means of a string run ning down the leg on tho inside of' the pants with the left foot. Attach ed to the boot was a hook, as a fast ening for the string, made of hollow spring wire, another small string of the ordinary hempen kind being re ceived in the hollow of the wire, and acting upon the inner portion of the machine according to the move ment of ttie loot. The machine it self is of the most ingenious device. It consists of two thin steel plates, with work resembling the internal organism ot a clock. It acts nearly on the principle of an ordinary paper fastener. The mouth fronts on the outer edge of the coat. The coat is thrown half open, so that the right hand, in holding up the cards, is brought in close proximity with his mouth. When the player de sires to secure an ace he brings both hands close up to the breast, and by extending tho left leg, the action of tho cord opens the mouth of the machine. The card is then slipped in, and a receiver on the inside is drawn forward and drags or sucks it in still further. (So on until the best hand is secured. Ry winding the thing up it is made to eject the cards thus brought in, thereby en abling the player to execute his, motions almost imperceptibly. The Bary's Deatit.—There came a morning at last when the baby’s eyes did not open. I>r. Erskine tell the heart throb faintly under his fingers, but lie knew it was beating its last. He trembled for Elizabeth, and dared not tell her. She antici pated him •• Doctor,” she saiii—and her voice was so passionless that it might al most have belonged to a disem bodied spirit—“ I know that uiv darling is dying.” He bowed bis head mutely. Her very calmness awed him. “ Is there anything you can do to ease her?” "Nothing; I do not think she suffers.” "Then will yon please to go away, she is mine—nobody's but mine, in her life and in her death, and 1 want her quite to myself at the last." ■Sorrowfully enough tie left her. Elizabeth held her. child closely, but gently; she thought iu that hour that she had never loved anything else—never in this world should love anything again. She wanted to cry, but her eyes were dry and burning, aud no tear lell on the little face, changing so fast to marble. She bent over and whisjiered some thing in the baby’s ear—a wild, pas sionate prayer that it would remem ber her and know her again in the infinite spaces. A look seemed to answer her—a radiant, loving look, which she thought must bo born of the near heaven. She pressed her lips in a last despairing agony of love to the little face, from which al ready, as sho kissed it, the soul had tied. Her white wonder had gone home. This which lay upon her hungry heart was stone. A Fatal Spring.—About one-half a mile over a mountain from IUrtletl •springs there is what is called the Gas Spring. This is probably the greatest curiosity of the mountains. The water is ice-cold, but bubbling and toaming "as if boiled, and the greatest wonder is the inevitable dis tinction of life produeod by inhaJuig the gas. No live thing is to be found within a circuit of 100 yards near this spring. The very birds, if they hap pen to fly over it, drop dead. We experimented with a lizard oil its des tructive properties, by holding it a few feet above the water; It stretched dead in two minutes. It will kill a human being io twenty minutes. Wo stood over it about five minutes,when a dull, heavy, aching sensation crept over us, our eyes begun to swim. The gas which escapes here is the raukest kind ot carbolic acid, lienee its sure destruction of life; also, quenching | of flame Instantaneously.—Cofusn (God.) Independent. i —— —-— Halky Horses.—The following rule for the treatment of balky horses should be known by every person: “The brain of a horse seems to entertain but one idea at a tima: therefore continued whipping only confirms his stubborn resolve, if you can, by any means, give him a new subject to think of, you will generally have no trouble in start nig hint, a, simple rymedy is to ■; ^ke a couple of turns of stout twine Vi'Aiud tlie fore lag, just below the knee, tight enough for the lioree to i, teel, and tip In a bow knot. At the i ,rst (,heck he will generally go ilanelag oil, and after going a'short < istance yoiM'au. get out and remove S' *rtog,‘t» pi+vent injury to the *endou In your further drive. [FOB THE riMKS. THE PILGRIM. A pilgrim from the Ftatern State* Stood on the golden strand, A tear was in his sore right eye, A pirk-axe in his hand; A tear was in his sore right eye. And in his left, to match, There wonld have txteti another tear, But for a healing patch. And other patches, too, he wort*. Which on his garments hung— And two we.re on that ill-starred spot Where mothers smite their young; His lint; a shining castor once, Was tattered now aud dim, And wild his bearded features gleamed From out that tattered brim. The pilgrim sighed, and, looking down. Like one who was in doubt, He sighed to see how fast that pair Of boots were wearing out; And while he pulled his old clay pipe, His wretchedness to cheer, He stooped, and—with a lightning move— Fulled a bed-bug (iff his ear. A Prayer.—Dan do Quill gives us the following, said to have oc curred near Genoa, Douglas county: “And now, O Lord, having in voked Thy blessing on inv family and all other good people and good works everywhere, there is one thing more, O Lord, which is near to Thy servant’s heart, in which lie would humbly pray Thy assistance: if in Thine infinite wisdom and goodness if may seem fitting thus to favor Tliy servant. “Thou knowest, O Lord, that on the morrow a trial of the speed of fleet horses—most perfect specimens of Thy handiwork, O Lord—will take place; Thou further knowest, O Lord, Thou who knowest all things, that Thy servant hath it in his heart to attend this congregating together of swift steeds. “ It will be a place, O Lord, where the godly and the ungodly will he brought face to face and will strive together. “ And I would further state in this connection, O Lord, that most prob ably thousands of dollars will change hands during the exercises. Knowing, O I,on), that in times past | it was Thy good pleasure to deliver the heathen and the ungodly into the hands of Thy chosen people as a \>rey and a spoil, Thy servant would most humbly ask, O Lord, that Thou be with him through the struggles of the morrow. “If Thou thinkest it be not too much to ask. O Lord, on a short ac quaintance, Thy servant would de sire that Tliou wouldst open his eyes —even as Thou didst open the eyes of him that was blind—that he may I see and rightly judge of the merits | and capabilities of the divers steeds arrayed over against one another, I and that the treasures of the ungodly and such as revile Thy holy name may pass over into the hand of Thv loving servant; and Thine, O Lord, j be the glory and praise forever, for ever, worlds without end. Amen.’’ W aiterrible.—A San Francisco paper tells a story of a Marysville man who is inordinately fond of buckwheat eakes and sausage gravy, and who, whenever he comes across either of these dishes at a table, never knows when tie has got enough. Some time ago this gentle man wait called to San Francisco ami went to Sacramento on liis wav, when ho entered one of the hotels to get his breakfast. On the bill of fare he spied his favorite dish, and straightway the obedient waiter was traveling toward the kitchen for buckwheat cakes and sausage gravy. The mau's appetite was keen, and the cakes and gravy seemed extra good. Four times did that waiter carry empty plates from the table to return with more buckwheat eakes and gravy before the man finally cried enough. Notwithstanding his breakfast, the gentleman from Marysville managed to reach San Francisco and transact his business and was again on his way home. He returned via. Sacramento and went to the same hotel for his meal. Ho sat down to the table and the same waiter approached. He took one good look at him, to assure himself that it was his former customer, and then, without a word, walked back to the kitchen and haw led, “ Buck wheat eakes anil sausage gravy for six; that old hog from Marysville is back here again.” Mrs. Elizabeth Cahy Stanton comes into the Beeeher-Tilton un pleasantness with her budget of know ledge. She says that by a sin gular coincidence Tilton told her two or three years ago ot his infidel ity to his wife, and on the same day Mrs. Tilton in another part of the city confessed to Susan B. Anthony her infidelity to Theodore and crim inality with Beecher. Incidentally Mrs. Stanton tells this on Uncle Sammy Wilkeson, See. N. P. R. R-, who figured in the famous tri-partite covenant. “ At the time of our first knowledge of the affair, Mr. Wilke son also heard of it. He besought the ladies not to make it public. To him it was a matter of money. He was a stockholder in Plymouth Church, iu the Christian Union, and in the ‘ Title of Christ.' Wow, the destruction of Mr. Beecher would be the destruction of all these. As Mr. Wilkeson expressed it, ‘ It would knock the Lile of Christ higher than a kite.’ Hence his con cern in keeping the matter secret.” WALTER, ROSENTHAL & CO. SILVER CITY, NEV.
