THE DODGE CITY TIMES.
THE HEW NICKSIi GIXDBBS). The United States authorities rerort that the city "crooks" are beoomimg expert! in the gilding of the new 5-oent pieete and pawing them for $5 gold coins, and recom mended caution on the part of people to keep from being fooled by them. In some instances the deception of the gilding is farthered by skillful milling of the edges, and anyone not thoroughly posted can readi ly be deceived by the coins so tampered with. On the face of these pieces appears to be an exact counterpart of the genuine $5 gold piece,) and the change in the other one can readily be supposed to be the result of a new coinage, there being nothing to indicate that the V does not stand for $5. The field for the perpetration of the fraud among those who do not read the newspapers is al most unlimited. A dispatch from Nashville reports that last Monday night W. G. Wood ward was arrested in that city on a telegram from Chief of Police Campbell, of St. Louie, saying that Woodward was wanted by the Federal authorities on a charge, of passing gilded nickels for $5 gold pieces. The St. Louis authorities were notified of the arrest, and replied that they would send a requisition for the prisoner. Woodward is a newspaper reporter employed some years ago on St. Louis papers, and recently in a similar capacity in Nashville. The Federal Grand Jury reported to the court last evening finding indictmentB against a half-dozen of the counterfeiters and petty revenue offenders already in custo dy. Two indictments were found against parties not yet arrested, and one of thtee is euppoped to be intended for a gilded nickel passer. St. Louis Globe-Democrat. An exchange says: The flesh of the sheep is the best meat in the world; it is also the poorest. A lean, thin sheep, that has out lived its usefulness as a wool bearer, and been cut down by the relentless knife as a cumberance of the pasture ground, and con signed to the pot in the vain hope of masce rating its toughened fibers, affords an un savory and unpalatable meat, which has taught many to loath the very name of mutton and abominate its very smell. On the contrary, not the aromantic flavors of venison, the gamey richness of wild foul, or the Hweet juices of a Short-horn sirloin can surpass the virtues of Southdown marrow and fatness. It iB sweeter to the palate, more digeBtible, and more nutritious than any other variety of meat food. . Eugene Field says that Wiggins came in like a ten-ton dornick and went out like a spit ball.

Tht kill of Buffalo last winter was seti mated at 80,000, which from the report of hides shipped, is very close to the mark. Ths kill this winter promises to fall a long way short of last. A dealer who was a buyer in the field, says ha has, so far only 900 hides. Tht amount of the matter is that buffalo art rapidly btctming extinct and unless tht attempt madt to domesticate the animal succeeds, the noblest American game will pass into history before the next census. It is certainly pleasant to have been borne a man. One doesn't have to bother himself for a month over the plans and specifications of a new spring bonnet. He simply has to foot the bill when the thing is brought home, and if the two combine produce paralysis he's not to blame for it. DODGE CITY and TAS00SA HAIL AND STAGE LINE. Ij. K.
