Roe Bros., NEW CASH STORE AJST1D PROVISIONS, And One of those mistakes that are ha ble to occur in the best regulated families, made quite a laugh in a West side residence a few days ago. The lady of the house had beon srrumblinsr about a corn ou her foot for months, and her husband had tried in vain to got her to consent to have a regularly ordained ''corn den tist" come up and remove it, but she was nervous about having a horrid man touch her bare foot, and sh e suffered along until Tuesday, when, in a moment of agony, she told the old man to send up his corn dentist as quick as he had a mind to. He went down to his office and ordered the corn man to go up. He had al ready ordered a plumber to go to the house and mend some gas iiitures that had sprung a leak, and the plumber got there first. The lady gave orders that if a man called with some corn tools, to send him up to her room. The plumber rung the bell, and on being asked, the girl told him to go up to the lady's room, and the man went up. He had a roll of cloth wita tools in it and as he put it down on the floor to unroll the tools, the lady took off her slipper, and ra moved her stocking, and placed her foot on a hassock. She looked at the plumber's tools on the floor and almost faiuted. There was a big pair of pincers, -two files and a lot of iron thing's that looked big enough to re move the corns from an elephant The man was sorting out the tools and didn't notice the woman's fright until she asked: "Is this going to hurt much? If it is I had rather suffer the annoy ance." u, uo, sam tne mau, looking up at the gas bracket by the window. which had a rag around the joint tnat leaKea. "i can screw tne cap onto the joint, so the gas can not es cape," and seeing the lady's bare foot so near him, he opened his eyes in won- der and blushed like a girl. Sue looked at him and wondered why he did not go to work on her foot, and he looked as little like the way she supposed a corn doctor would look as possible Taking up a big pair of pinchers, and taking a match, to light a small can die which he carried, to test leaky gas fixtures, he said; "Where does it seems to he the worst?" "There," says the .little wo man, bending over and placing her tin ger on the next to the little toe "Right between thote two toes. It is a soft corn and sometimes makes me wild jnow, ao oe careiui. won't you," as the man dropped his pincers and stood back as though he had been struck by lightning. Then he laughed out loud and said: "Madam, I have been in the plumb ing business twenty two years, but this is the first time I was ever called upon to repair a broken joint on a woman's toe Excuse me," and he be gan to roll up his tools. "Heavens and earth," said the woman, as she tried to put on her stocking wrong end first, and blush ing so shs looked as pretty as though she never had a corn'X thought you was a corn doctor. There is the eraB fixture you are to putty up," and she went out of the room in her stocking feet to blow up the girl for sending a plumber to plumb a corn. The corn doctor soon arrived and did his work, and when he and the plumber went out together they were having a great laugh as they turned the cor ner. "When she tells her husband to send up a man to do any work about the house now, she stipulates he shall not send a plumber whatever he does. Peck's Sun, country. Fabulous stories were told regarding that country. Gold was actually shoveled up and fortunes could be made in a few hours. These stories have attracted hundreds.

Peoplo flocekd there, and as the only means of reaching the diggings was to go via Guaymas, these firms put on a line of sailing vessels and carried for 100 all who ventured to go to Angel Guardia, a distance of 200 miles, and about 15 to 50 miles from the alleged placers.

Pratt, a railroad officer at Guaymas, the reporter elicited considerable information regarding Guaymas and Angel Guardia, the nearest point to the reputed "gold fields of Lower California." Mr. Pratt, in reply to inquiries, said Gusymas is dull. The steamship project has - not, as yet, developed furthor than on paper. The railroad traffic is picking up to a considerable extent. A street railroad has just been finished in Guaymas, and alter a week's running was found to bo a failure. Business of all kinds is dull, and many mechanics are out of em? ployment. In regard to the gold ex citement, Mr. Pratt says. Some few firms in Angel Guardia had a heavy stock of peiishable goods and boomed the gold fields in order to at tract the people from the upper . I know very little about social life at the post, but from what I have seen I incline to the opinion that it is very gay. The army officer gets very good pay and he spends it right royally. JSven here, on the very edge of civilization, he receives fiom his friends in the States big consign ments of literary matter and whole baskets of spiritual refreshment. He has his billiards and lawn tennis, his croquet and his poker. Ho enjoys the society of many agreeable females, his brother officer's wives, their cousins and their aunts. He dresses well, rides a fine horse, lives on the best, and but for the red tape and the martenism would have a very easy time of it. When he goes on a scout after Indians it is a gigantic picnic, and if upon bis return he is able to report that two ponies wer captured, or one old squaw was killed by his gallant troopers, he forthwith becomes an object of reverent ador ation at the post aud is made the 4 hero of the latest "great Indian bat tle" by the newspapers in the States. His honors come .easy. and from reading of his own bravo deeds so much, ho finally more than half ' believes them to be true, and takeB airs accordingly. Cor.

It was only tbo other day that my wife made up her mind to send the boys to school and she remembered you at once." "Indeed; then I can look for them?" "On, yes, you can look for them diligently. She remembered you as one of her old suitors that spelled cordial with a k, and of course she wanted her boys to imbibe that kind of orthography." Yonkers Gazette. Mamie, having beon. helped twice to everything on the table, slid down when the coffee came in , from her chair, with a sigh. "There, now," said her mamma, "I suppose you have eaten so much that you feel un comfortable." "Don't " replied Ma mie. quickly, with a toss of her little head. kI only feel nice and smooth.' -Ex.

It is a good deal the same way with white people in the East, but some dealers do not find it out until they lana m the almshouse. Ex. A Lecture ok Ecokomt. A stupid looking tramp knocked at one of the finest residences in Austin, and was received by the lady of the house.

Good day, fair lady."-Texac Sift- mgs. Miners and by this term we mean men who own mines and work them are not at all pleased with the law which allows a man to locate any number of claims and hold them bv trickery. One operative miner yes terday told us that in his immediate neighborhood a certain man claims, for himself and others, perhaps forty .laims, some of which are good and would be worked if they could only be located by working miners. The claim owner in question holds his ground as long as the law will let him. His plan is, not to do the as sessment work, but to watoh and wait until time is up, whon he re-locates and holds them for another period. This kind of performance should not he encouraged. Mjnes can never bo developed in this way, so that it is not strange that working miners de sire a change in the law. Preseott Courier, The first ton of Mexican tin ovei shipped to this country, says the Sentinel, was received recently. It came from the Durango district, near the famous mountains of iron of the same name. The tin is said to be bright, dear and of good texture. The ores are of the placer origin, and average about 73 per cent, of melted tin. It was discovered by Mr. Henry Freeman, an Australian engineer, who has been for a year or more ex- The police of several Eastern cities have begun to make raids on Chinese gambling-houses.

She says they are not nearly so enormous as she expected to find them. Mrs Davis ought not to expect a tree to look large when her husband around. Eoch. Post Ex. is They were courting.
