Betting od the late election wai bad business, It takes too long to decide it. Waiting for the hat you have won; wait ing for the boots you have won; wailing for the new suit of clothes; worse than all wait ing (or the drinks for the crowd. These are some of the troubles heappd upon a long Buffeting people by the bulldozed par- i:hti and fraudulent counting in Louisiana. Narrow dance Railroad. The narrow gauge is not a toy railroad by any means. It will transport as many passengers and as much freight as any railroad. Many people have au unaccountable prejudice against this system of railroads. They denounce it on general principal although they perhaps have never studied the principals of the system theoretically or know anything of it practically, One thing is certain it costs one third less to build them and one third less to operate them after they are built. They carry less dead weight in cars and engines, and all other coHditions being equal they cau transport freight and passengers cheaper than the broad gauge roaJ, Live stock can be shipped on the former s well as the latter. Tbe narrow gauge will carry more freight up steeper grades than the broad gauge It can run on shorter curves with greater safety. It is as comfortable for passengers without prejuJice as the btoad gaugo. In short it can do all the business which hits ever yet been required of a railroad iu the United Stutis, with the exception perhaps of h very few line. A train ou the K, P, or the A. T. it S F. can not bring a load of freight across the plains which the D. cC R. 0. will not transfer to a train on ihnir road nnd carry it. The broad gruge is like a fat man trying to work, ha expends ull his energy in biscwu locomotion. The power is destroyed in pulling the engiue atid cars instead of the freight. The broad gauge possesses but one advantage over the narrow gauge and that is tie great number of railroads built on tbe former system in the United States, find they all been built on the narrow gauge plan, it would havo been better fnr the owners of the roads and tho country at large, The gauge of the flint road built by Stephenson in En gland was fixed at 4 ft. 8 in., because that w is the gauge of the common road wagon. That has become the standard gauge throughout the world. The Festiniog railway iu the south of Wales was originally built as a tramway, Thegaueewss only 23 inches. In 1809 Mr. Fairlie built an engine for this road. It was fonnd to work excellently for the transportation of freight. The writings of Mr. Fairlie published in 1870 and 1871, on "The Gauge of the Railways for the Future." aliractcd the attention of engi neers througbi u'. the world, He claims for this system; 1, that the cost of constructing taking the average expenso, is founlto varj as the gauge, 2, thut every inch added to 'ha width of the gi.uga beyond what is absolutely necessary for the traffic adds lo tli cost of construciion and increases the deal weight of the rolling stock nd the cost of working; 3, (hat tba dead weight of the trains is in direct proportion to the gauge on which they run; 4, that a saving in first construction equal in many cases to 03 per cent can be made by the adoption of the narrow gauge, which allows greater curvature, narrower hauls, and ligh er bridging, rails and ties; C, that narrow gauge railroads have relativn'y greater traffic capacity thaa roads of tbe standard gang; acd finally, thai they are safer and can be more economically mainta'nsd and operated. lhe grant dindvintaga uf this system is a present the necessity of resbiping freigH where aver connections are made with the broad gaugo nads. This difficulty with tbe D. k R. O. will be greatly obviated by connecting with the Galveston and New Mexico road. This will give access to Galveston, New Orleans and tbe southern cities without reshipment, and will la the outlet to the sea coast of a complete system of narrow gaure railroads. Moncura 1). Conway sticks lo it that tha Jurgernaat suicides art tha fiction of mist fiooary imagination. Jnggarnaat himself as representad ia Sunday school literature is fictitious The Word is aco ruptian of Jaganatb, "the Lord of Life," a till as cribad fur marly to Vishnu, now to Krishna and ta either of these deities dth was abominible, tod not acceptable. That deaths occur in the iminenss throng of devotees is not doubted; but Mr. Conwey observed that when the Prince of Walts visited St, Panl's after his recovery from his desperate illness, some years ago ssveral persons were crushed to death, and fancies this fact reaching tome distant island "in such a shape as to 'leave there a tradition that it is usual to sacrifice human victims in England on the roovery of a prince, as a part of a thanksgiving service. Especially might this be the4case if the sentence were reported and interpreted by priests anxious to place Christianity ia its worst light." It will be highly probable that so soon as the D. it R. G. lily is completed a distance of 75 miles further, to the Cimarron, that the Commission houses now at El Moro will make a permanent change to Las Ve gas. This will also causo some of the wholesale bouses at Santa Fe to change their baso of operations to this point; other wise they will not be able to retain their trade. The railroad will not be likely to termiuate long at the Cimarron but will bo pushed foward until it reuuhes this place where the Galveston road is expected to connect with it. It will also wish to reach the Hot Springs and thus afford tourists and travelers an easy,, method of access to them and secure the passenger travel. TVool, hides and live stock dealers will like wise fiud a great impetus . given to their business. Stock yards will be a necessity to meet the wants ;of the stockmen Irom Western Texas and the Valley of the Ca nadian and Pecos. This will be preeminen tly the wool market for New Mexico and Arizona. Our dealers in this staple will be enabled hen to handle all the wool gtowu in this and adjoiuiug Taitones. The retail trade in al! lines of merchandise will increase immensely by reason of tbe stimu lus given to every branch of industry. This will be the outfitting point for trains to the Pan Handle, western Texas, the Canadian, the Peces Arizona, Chihuahua and Sonora Blacksmiths, wagon makers, painters, bar. ness makers, Carpenters and all the trades will find abundant employment at retnune rativt wages. Let the narrow gauge get within 75 miles and Las Vegas will be a towuif'it never get any nearer. For us the railroads bud better be buck at the Mia souri river than w'iere they are. We either want them at us or near us or cUe we want them a thousand miles away.

Tba proprietor of a LaCrosse saluun bad a live turtle that was deaimeJ to give flavor to a free lur.t h. It w.is under the ice-box, and its pone's of loromotii n w ie u.poje to be dormant. Two old topers were sitting by a table and nitimhlitijt over tbeir glasses Suddenly the turtle, which nad wmldkd from the jce-b:x, encountered a mass of leather under the table, aud, not Laving time to go brou n i J the obsi ruction, stated to climb over it. The mac within tbe boot looked dwj ami turned pale. 'Vj,"hc wLispered, "take me home aud aeud for a ductor. I've got 'em!'' a An anxious parent residing in the country who was somewhat doubtful of his son's prosperity io the City, wrote, inquiring how much money ha was saving, and received a reply that the young man cleared over all expenses $2 05 per day. Being still in doubt, the father wrote for particulars as to bow lie did it. Tha youth replhsd that he bung around all saloons watchin fjr lrent and io thi; way got 100 drinks a d.ty. worth at ten cents a drink, $10.

It is not perhaps generally known, sy' the St, Louis Republican, that the author of "Home, Sweet Home,'1 was madly in love with Miss Maria Mayo, of Richmond Virginia, afterward Mrs. General Winfield Scott. Miss Moyo was a famous belle, and remarkable for her wit as for her beauty. Poor Tayne was not the only one who had laid bis heart at her feet and hud to take it up again, but he probably suffered more from his disappointment than the rest ot the rejected lovers. When all hope of win ning tha fair prize was abandoned. h went abroKd never to return, and thfre is no doubt that the corroding sorrow hastened him to tbe grave he found in a foreign land. The tradition in IticbmonJ is that Scott addressed Miss Mayo when he wss only a captain in the urmy, and received a prompt dismissal. Ha repeated the ex. perituent wheu o Major, but with nu better furcess. The third time he proposod he were the epaulets of a General, and then was accepted. A trieud of the lady asked her why she changed her mind. The reply was: ' I my eitioiulian there is a vast difference between ('..plain cr even Huiw Scott nnd Otntral Scott. -av KiltcHoiiieti, A f,w days ago the members of a Cali, larma tirio association were engaged in the great moral duty of shooting at a mark when a lady, carrying a longvrange rifle! decorated with the usual quantity of survey ug instruments and meteorological machine, mudo her appearance, ami an nonnced that the intended toehont' Tho astonished riflemen did tl0t dare to oi-psae any objection, but flew madly toward tbe target, in order to obtain a su.'e position, lhe unruffled Ldy-thoagh, on stcond thought, the may have had ucre or lets r.fllos con. ealnduboiit.'lier ptrsun-s'raight. eued herself upon the ground, tied heiseif into the intricate knot usually called, "the Creedmoor position." shut her eyes firmly and 5 red.
