Another Indian Raid Feared.
LouI ,,tfu o, N. M., February.-Mr. Bajss telegraplhs from Owen's station, 12 mjiiles south of Clifton, that he saw fifty Indians near that point this evening. They appeared to be traveling from the direction of Clifton and moving toward HIorseshoe . Canon. The New Mexico and Arizona telegraph line being cut be tween Clifton and Owen's ranch makes it impossible to say whether Clifton is 1,einii raided or not. H. and F. Porter telegraphs from York's ranch they saw (;1 Indians about 12 miles below York's to-day with 60 head of stock. The whole (;ila valley is alarmed and settlers are imiaking preparations for a repetition of last April. They are wholly unprotect ed(. These are undoubtedly the same Indians who have been committing dep redations in Mexico. ------------ ..B 44 b- t. Alaska News. F'oR'TLANnD, February 5.-Advices fromi southeastern Alaska by the last steauler say that the universal verdict am(long the white residents is that Conm .1.mlder Yerriinan's action in shelling ani Indian village was the only proper thing to be done and its effects are of a i;,,a.t \iiolesone character. The Indians aeknowwledge the justice of the punish ieni and dlo not show the least resent nii.nt. The report that the Indians are uffelring froln want of shelter or food is utterly untrue. Most of the huts de stroyed have been rebuilt and no per soºnal property was destroyed, as the In dians had twenty-four hours notice to re move their effects. A Terrible Tragedy. St. LouIs, February 4.-Jnc. C. Par ker, murderer of Mike Payton, whose ease was docketed for trial in the criminal c urt to-day,. shot his wife through the head. about noon in the jury room of the court, after which he sent a bullet iiito his own brain. Pi'esley N. Jones, attor ney for Mary Craft, sister of Parker, and de(lputy sheriff Walters, were in the 'roo it at tihe same time. It is thought Mrs. Parker furnished the weapon. She was instantly killed and at last accounts i'.rker was dying. The Ohio Floods. ('olUM HUE, Ohio, February 5.-Re ports from all parts of ce tral Ohio show that the present flood is the highest . aOlt"er by fronli six to twenty inches ever known. The Scioto in this city is four teen inches higher than ever before, and I lie (laitnige here is enlorlmous, mostly to tie iull.tated portion. On the west side ov1'r one hIundred fnailies had to quit their houses. The river by noon to-day has falllen three feet, and the worst is Catharine and Thurlow. T'herie is a little romance connected with the marriage of Thurlow V'eed, ,l(d by the veteran journalist himself. "When I was working in Cooperstown,"' MIr. Weced said, "I and two other young fellows were arrested for insulting some girls while going home from meeting. I inever was more innocent of anything in my life, but I had no friends, and was threatened with jail. Suddenly a man whom I did not know stepped forward and gave bail for me, and a lawyer whom I had barely seen offered to serve me as counsel. My trial came on, and the girls exonerated me from having anything to do with it. A year or two alter this I fell in love -with Catharine (Ostrander, of Cooperstown, and married her, and a better wife no man ever had. It was ten years before I found out how I canme to be defended. Meeting the lawyer in Albany, I asked him. "Why, said he, "it was Catharine Ostrander's work." She had felt rather shyand had not told me in all that time. But the niext year the lawyer was surprised by being nominated and elected attorney general of the state. Not altogether be cause he had interceded for me, he was just the man for the place. I very rare ly had a man elected or appointed to of fice for reasons personal to mysel." To Young Men. George D.. Prentice once wrote: "To a young man away from home, friend less and forlel~n in a great city, the hours of peril are those between sunset a•nd bedtime; for the moon and the stars se(:e more evil in a single hour than the sun in hisjwhole days circuit. The poetla's visions of evening are all 'comeped to tender and soothing images. It brings the wanderer to his home, the child to his mother's arms, tlhe ox to his stall, and the weary laborer to his rest. But to the gentle-he td youth who thrown" upon the i~cs of the .tlV city, and stands homeless'amitd, th9oq and homes, the approach 9f eM'4 brings with it an .ahing sje o(4e1e liaess and desolation wbteheome6s r upon the spirirtglke drknie. i u i earth.

"No, sir," said the passenger to the ship's doctor, "I'm not seasick, but I am deucedly disgusted with the motion of the vessel." A daily chicken train has been started on the Pennsylvania railroad. They have a passenger Cochin the rear and a locomotive to pullet. A Vassar college miss reads the prayer book response thus: "As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without men. Ah me!" A bald-headed man who had heard that the hairs on a man's head are num bered, wants to know if there is not some place where he can obtain the back numbers. That young lady who made 700 words out of the "conservatory" last fall has run away from home. Her mother wanted her to make three loaves of bread out of "flour." A Chicago merchant advertised "Boy Wanted," and before he got down town his clerk met him, breathless, and told him that his wife had twin boys. Oh, it pays to advertise! When a lady who has been taking music lessons for the past eight years hangs back and blushes and says she really can't play, don't insist on it. The chances aic that she can't. In making Christmas presents always choose a useful gift. An admission ticket to an asylum for idiots would be useful to the average fresh young cigar ette smoker. Send him one. A Chicago man offers a reward of $10 for the return of his umbrella, and, of course, the religious enthusiast who carried it away from prayer meeting is not going to give himself away for that money. A Philadelphia youth who has been to the Hub tells us that the intellectuali ty of the Boston girl begins at the break fast table and lasts until tlie old folks go to bed. After that, if the right fellow is in the parlor, and the light is turned low, she acts like any other girl. A south end man has taught his dog, when offered sausage, to smell of it and then turn away with a mournful howl, and when he goes into a butcher's shop where there are a lot of folks, offers the ldog a sausage and the dog does the act, it is awful embarrassing for the butlcher, and if he gets a chance he kicks the dog. "Yes, sir,". he said that's an awful knowing bulldog o' mine. He was jam full of fleas, and he got sick o' wrench in' his spine and the cords of his neck reaching around to gnaw 'em; and be sides he was rather tired of the taste of himself. What did he do? WVent out, sir, and got into a fight with another dog and let that dog do the gnawing for him. Mighty intelligent dog, sir. A snow storm in Atlanta, Ga., is so rare a thing that when it does come the roporter of the local paper teels it neces sary to say: "A snow storm sent its beautiful peltings on Atlanta on Friday night and Saturday. The flakes seemed like atoms of a shattered gate of heaven as they beautifully floated everywhere or straddling the gentlest of breezes bounded away like the soul of mirth through measures of sprightly rounde lay.'" Mrs. Fitz Nickle aspires to be as fash ionable as any of her "swell" neighbors. She was telling a lady visitor the other morning that she had just engaged a very efficient, experienced and high priced French cook. While her friend was congratulating her upon her new acqluisition, the French cook inserted her head within the doorway and asked: "Shure, missus, an' shall I pale the praties, or bile 'em with their jackets on?" The editor of the Kansas City journal is a wanderer on the face of the earth. Only last week he was a man respected by all, and in receipt of a princely in come. To-day he is, no one knows where. In his paper last week, is a de scription of the toilets worn by ladies at the bazar of all nations, he said Miss so and-so had on a pink "undershirt," when it should have been underskirt. The girl bought a revolver and started out one way looking for the editor, her brother took a shot gun, her father took an axe, and her lover armed hbri -f with a horsewhip, and the editor took a shawl strap with a linen Uiter in lilnd swam the river, and is suppiosed to be in the foothills existing on rouits and briers. A 3Montana fiirY. A tall, broad-0hauldeipd, gray-beided miner from Montana, while viewing the sights about towan; strolled into :one of the variety theaters on State street the bther ey@eang, a.ad took a se~twt bh stage. htIni~ lihe performanchi bh6 vame deeply interested in one of a grop the rugg ier and he o1st noe in gainng an lntoi oi to tefi pnsaiaer. After 1*~astng his ejiin her 011ae~~~ 3r~i profitable one in which the variety ac tress ever engaged, for her companion led her into a dry goods store, and with out much ceremony began purchasing such articles as he seemed to think she needed. Fine hosiery and tinderwear, a richly trimmed cloak and a handsome lace collar were among the purchases which the man from Montana made for the object of his affections. On the following day another walk along the leading thoroughfare was taken by: the pair. The snow was fall ing, and the generous miner took his companion to a store and bought her a gossamer cloak and a pair of rubbers. As they left the place he requested the woman to accompany him to the depot. Arriving there the miner bestowed a fond look upon her and said with a pathetic smile: S'"You think I'm a funny feller, now, don't you? Well, now, I'll tell you what I'll do. I've taken a fancy to you, and if you'll marry iie and go to Mon tana I'll buy you a $300 seal skin sacque. Of course you needn't go if you don't want to; it will make no difference in my feelings for you if you don't. Now, what do you say, yes Or no?" The favorite of the footlights turned her head and hurriedly reviewed the situation. The thought of forsaking the glare and glitter of the stage, and ap plause and attention-i of the habitues of the theater was too niuch for her, and she flatteringly replied : ."I don't think I will accept your of fer." "All right, good-bye." exclaimied the miner, as he hurried into the train-and thus they parted. On arriving at the theater that even ing the actress was in:ormied that a pack age had been left for her. It was found to contain "a love of a hat," which she had admired when out walking with the miner, and a handsome morocco pocket-book, well tilled with gold pieces and bank notes. One of her fellow ar tistes, to whomr she displayed her gifts, exclaimed: "Well, you were a big 'churnp' to al low that old 'sucker' to get away with out working him for all lie was worth." The girl looked as though she was half inclined to think so herself, as she enter ed her dressing-room to make up for the performance, and will probably not soon forget the rugged miner from Montana. --UChicago Herald. 1M9ace Can .Lie. NEW YORK, Feb. 3.-When Jem Mace was on the witness stand yesterday, he declared that men of the highest stand ing were taking boxing lesions and in dulged in friendly sparring, and when asked for an instalcce he replied, " Ros coe Conkling is a very good boxer, and is very proud of his knowledge of the art. Some years ago he had a.little bout with Senator Chandler, of Michigan, in which he c.ine out the best man. The next day (Jhandler introduced me to Conkling at dinner. The day after, in the evening, after a .discussion about boxing, 'Conkling induced me t, put on the gloves with hint. The Senator is a good boxer, as I have -aid, but he quick ly rolled on the floor a nd alandoned the lesson in good ihumo''." This ;ittle tale, though interestinlg, is pronounced wholly false, and Conkling has positively de clared that. he never saw Mace in his life, and therefore never boxed with him, md that he never boxed with Senator Chandler at a:ny time.
