of Sun Francisco. 1 Mild :
"Mr Yeoimins. do vou ever remember of

"John Jv. llackett?" repeated Mr. Yeoiunns,

lie could shoot the tors o,' of a ily. That was
a great crowd that crowd in California in
those days."
Here Mr. Yeonians shoved up his shirt
sleeves, ami mixed a cocktail for Major Gor
don and ('apt. Dinwiddle, of Camp Douglas.
After the cocktails had disappeared, he con
tinued: 'lu those days, you sec I used to keep a
place just outside of Han Francisco, called the
Ocean House. Iliad a partner. His name
wus .Barnard not the Judge. It was lcm-inc-seeV
it must have beeu, yen it was, in
1857. All the boys used to ride out and see
vis, and the thing, first and last, panned out a
good deal of coin It used to be a great place
fur the high toned sports to come out and
sh ot pigeon-matches and eat these big Cali
fornia shrimp, and play a little draw, drink
wine, and such things."
Here Mr. Ycoiuans shoved up his shirt
-k'cves, and mixed a cocktail for Major
Wheeler and the Jlon. Sam Merritt, ex-delegate
to congress from Idaho. . After the cock-,
tails had disappeared he continued: I
"Well, tho Ocean House used to lie a great!
place of resort fur tho boys. They were al
wavs playing practical jokes on each other
and having a good time generally. I remem
ber one morning there was Cook and Schenck,
The gm.t niarketmen, Ward Eaton, and Ira
Katun in the saloon and having a high old
time, laughing, drinking, and telling stories.
Ira Eaton had one of these here fancy double
barrelled shot guns under his arm, and was
bragging about the game he was going to
vhoot before night, when w ho should come in
but John llackett and John .Scranton. You
oughter have kuowed Scranton, for he was
one of the best fellows that ever scratched
Here Mr. Ycoiuans shoved up his shirt
sleeves and mixed cocktails for the lion.
Oscar G. Sawyer, Mr. Sloan, the livc-wifed
editor of the Salt Luke Jfertthl, and Major
Howell of Camp Douglas. After the cock
tails had disappeared he continued:
"Scranton had on a bran new beaver hat.
It was as glossy as ebony. lie had just given
$15 for it, got himself shaved and Lis clothes
brushed and looked as neat as a mountain
i;uail. llackett was as handsome as a game
rooster. The first thing I knew Ira Eaton
stood his shot gun up in the corner, and went
out doors, saying that lie would be back In a
lew minutes. After he was gone Schenck
looked at the gun and said, 'by George, it's
loaded.' So llackett and the rest of them
they got around and looked ut the gun, and
sure enough she was loaded. Then Ward
Eaton said, 'Let's put up a cold deck on Ira
while he's gone. We can draw the charges
from his gun, and then bet him a basket of
wine that he can't hit John Scrauton's hat at
forty yards.' The joke took immensely.
Schenck drew the charges out of the gun, and
they all stood around the bur chuckling and
waiting for Ira to come buck."
Here Mr. Yeonians shoved up bis shin
".keves and mixed a cocktail for George A.
Smith find Hishop Stenhouse. After the
cocktails had disappeared, he continued :
"Well vou pee. in about live minutes Ira he.
tame back. They all bcft'tm talking, ami
Ira began bragging about the game ln WW J
going to shoot." llackett stepped up to tin.4'
counter and picked up Ira's nun. He niiwd
her over and sighted her two or three times,
and then aked Ira what kind of A ;im she
was. Ira said tlnU she wa ii p'.vi'y good
hooter, that he had used hoi' ti halt dozen
times, and that lie didnt hrive auy fault to
find with her. 'What dH vou pav for her?'
says llackett, Hill tW".ing he r over. 'Well,'
Ira said, 'she co?tne a hundred and seventy
'ive dollars ' At this llackett laughed, and
liegan to Vi-'.icule Ira, telling him that the
gun want wnth a dose of tausy and bitters,
:ind t'U a man could buy a cart load of
such guns in New ork for two bits. Of
course, Ira was mighty indignant. Me told
llackett that he talked like an infernal fool,
and advised him to go to a gun shop and
learn something about a gun before making
an ass of himself.''
Here Mr. Yccmnns shoud up hir, shirt
-keves and mixed a cocktail for .tudgo
Hemingwav, of KaiiMK. and Judge .'Jeter j
Clinton, of Salt Lake. After the cocVail- j
had disappeared, ho continued:
"Well, just as Ira and llackett got to c.issiu' i
one another, John Scranton he, stM p 'l up,
and sculled himself into the row. f course ;
lie took Hackctt's side, declared ti e gun to 1 e I
nothing more than a pop gun, :.:ul wondered
that u inan of Ira's sporting reputation would i
r.arry such a gun. Ira was wild. He bad no
Mispiron but what tho toys were in carncM.
There was a jolly row. Ii" lasted two or three
minutes. TheiJo';'! I-"cTj:ilon u.kcd Ira if
;he gun was loaded. Ira said it was. 'Then,'
-aid John, wlnkif? at the boys, 'I'll lx t you
a basket of wine fi: it you cunt hi my hat on
top of that barrel,' pointing to a barrel about
forty yards dif::nt. At this Ira hesitated. He
hokVl at Scrauton's newjbeavcr, and said that
tt worn! bo a cussed (-hamo to ruin such a hat
as 1 1 1 ;it . If some one would put up an old hat.
he'd takr the brt. Hut John Scranton Insisted
upon putting up iiis hat, and accused Ira of
trying to crawl out of it because be knew
that thrrt'. were no old liaison the prcniNes.
That lived Ira up again. Tut up your hat,'
he sT.'d. I'll take ii pop at it for a basket .of!
-.vine.' " j
ITere Mr. Yenn.iiis lio'. ed up his shirt

So John Scranton went nut and put up his
liftei n-dollar hat on the barrel. When he
came back he was nigh bursting with laugh-ti-r.
All the boys acre nudging cadi other
and bad as much as they could do to hold in.
Ira lie raieJ the nn.'took good aim, and
plumped away wiih both aarn l-. The hat

At the J'oht-Ollleo Window.
From tho N. V. (.'oiiiiiieivtul Advertiser.
At tho window for the delivery of adver
tised letters special vigilance is requisite on
the part of the clerks to guard against the
delivery of advertised letters to unlawful and
mistaken claimants. They sometimes have a
dillicult task, however, in pcisuading vi ap
plicant that the letter ho inquires for is not
for him, but for another individual of similar
name. ( ine of them had such a task not Ion
since, when a daintily dressed and perfumed
gentleman presented himself at tho window
and iibked for a letter adveitised as remain
ins uncalled for ami addressed to "Edward
J ackson."
The clerk soon found the missivo inquired
for, but, after reading tho Miperscription, said
in a decided tone:
"This letter is not for you, sir."
"Xot for me! Isn't it for Edward Jack-
sour 1
"Yes, sir; but it isn't for you."
"My name is Edward .1 ackson."
"1 don't doubt it, sir: but, nevertheless, I
am sure this letter is not for you."
How can you know that, sir? sum me
exquisite, now becoming indignant (it is
astonishing, by the way, on what siigiu pio
vocation post-oflice callers let their angry
passions rise): "If you don't give ine that
letter at once, I'll report you to air. .James.
The clerk, knowing that .nr. .James, wnne
he would notctU'itcnanceimpcrtii rut 'talkm
back," would be Hire to sustain him if he
were in the right, coolly answered :
"1 ci'.n t give you the letter unless you
mswer the discrfption in the address."
"Isn't m name Edward Jackson, and isn't
the letter addressed to him V Don't I answer
the description V"
"Yes, sir, so lar. Uut that isn I cnougu.
Hie letter (reading from the address) is for
ICdward Jackson, colored, cook on the
schooner Dirty Jane. If you answer to Unit
description hero s your letter."
lint Air. Jackson didn't take it, and vanisneu
leaving behind him the odor of Joeky Club

custom of advertising letters and on the head
of the culinary artut of the gallant Dirty

H.el Loose that ltOie!"
I'he Hay City CknmMv- pays of OHO of its
illustrious ciliens: Mr. Wopples was born
to command there is no doubt of it. He can
no more help giving orders whenever lie sees
another man at work than a woman pass a
mirror without trving to catch a glimpse ot
her back hair. "Mr. Wopples was coming
along the street the other day where some
menVere hoisting some melted tar to the top
of a building for the roofers. One man was
pulling at the hoisting rope and another was
holding the bucket away from the wall by
nieans'of a cord. The bucket had just passed
the wide cornice when Wopples came upon
the scene. He comprehended the situation
at a glance and saw that the man who wa
holding the bucket out from the building by
the cord must slacken it, so as to let the
bucket swintr over on the roof. "Let iro that
rone!" shouted Mr. Wopples. The main
pulling on the hoisting rope recognized the
voice of authority ami, with a dim impression
that somethinir had burst, he dropped Lis rope
and ran to tile middle of the street. The
bucket came down so as to just hit the edge
of the cornice, which upset it and the smok
ing, sticky contents descended in a black
flood upon Mr. Wopples. During the next
two weeks Mrs. Wopples devoted her leisure
hours to scraping the tar oil' Wopples' skin,
varying this amusement by the delivery of
free lectures to Wopples; upon what she calls
his habit of "etarnally meddlin'."
A humorous old man fell in with an ignor
ant and rather impertinent young minister,
who proceeded to inform the old gentleman
in positive terms that he could never reach
heaven unless he was born again, ami auneii
