Witx her usual euteprise, Denver come, to the front with the announcement that at the enormous outlay of SIO,OOO the celebrated Man batten Deaeh production, Pain's “Siege of Sebastopol,” hoc been ae ecred for this city, the initial -pre formance commencing on Thursday evening, Jane 27th. This is one of the grandest of MUita/y Spectacular Conceptions, invented by James Pain Sons, London, the celebrated man ufacturers of fire-works at London, Melborne, Australia and New York, and it is gratifying to know that cur metropolis has secured something finer than eyer seen in the United States. Few people have any conception of the magnitude and surpassing beauty of these monster pyrotechni cal diplays. They necessitate 40 carloads of scenio paraphernalia, 500 people, fire acres of ground in the center of which is a lake 250 feet long by 75 feet wide, and seating ca pacity for 10,000 spectators. The picture is a colossal painting 300 feet long, done in oil, on iron and wood, with seenery blending off upon mighty canvas. Towers, mosques and truthful representations of the city of Sebastopol are done upon the iron block work by a celebrated Eu ropean artist. The production con sists of realistic bombardment of forts by boats which traverse the im mense artifical lake; terifio assault of fortress by allies; 35 correctly costumed and excellently drilled «ol diers, Cossacks Freach and English troops and marines, Turks, Sardin ians, etc. It being a military specta cle many feats of horsemanship, sword combats, athletic feats, etc., will be introduced by some of the greatest performers in the known world. All these will be produced intact, on the same scale of magnifi cence as at Manbatten Beach. After the Siege each evening will be given a |I,OOO fire-works display consisting of the latest novelties, Manbatten Beach, Aerial and Aqnatic Pyrotech nics. Grand concerts will be given by the Sebastopol Military Band of thirty pieces. All railroads will sell excursion tickets daring the production of this grand spectacle. The date of the excursion from this place can be as certained at the railroad depot. Only ten performances will be given, which will take to July 13th. Ample arrangements haye been made for the accommodations of 10,000 people in the mammoth amphitheatra erected for the pnrpose in River Front park.—Denver Times. The better element in the commu nity and the mugwumps are largely to blame for the alleged political de pravity of the times. If naen who are, or think they are, better than the common ran of hamanity won't go into caucuses and use their in fluence for the nomination of good men, how can they expeot good men to be nominated? You can’t put a package of ye&st oakes on the parlor table and expect it to leaven the dough in the kitchen. If high mind ed, principaled, thinking men will not go to the caucuses and to the polls and otherwise mingle in politics, but hold themselves at a critical dis tance and simply find fanlt, they should not expect politics to improve. The mugwumps will not go into either the republican or democratic caucuses for reasons which they themselves perhaps can explain; we can’t. They lot the wicked practical politicians run things; and they hud dle off by themselves in a perpetual state of hypochondria over the wick edness of the times.—Waterbary Re publican. The Las Vegas Optio gives the following brief history of Billy the Kid the notorious outlaw that was killed in New Mexico seven years ago: His name was William H. Bonney. At sixteen he was dubbed ‘The Kid* by his pals in Mesilla, on account of hij diminutive person, as well as his youth. When only twelve years of age he stabbed to death a man en gaged in a drunken brawl with one or two others in a saloon at Silver City. Between that time and the opening of the Lincoln county war, as it has been generally termed, he was known to have been the princi pal actor in the murder of three sleeping Indians for their ponies and pelts, and two monte dealers for their money. During the Lincoln county war—which you should know was a war for disputed pastnrage ground between twc rival firms of cattle kings and their respective ad herents, the Kid certainly murdered with his own hsnd two unarmed men, whom his companions had made prisoners, and the clerk of a merehantile house for remonstrating with him about driving off horses belonging to the firm. He also kill ed one man in open fight, and as sisted in the assassination of three officers of the law, including the sheriff of the county. Subsequent to the war he killed in a saloon a Texan, whow he provoked into a difficulty, after he had made himself secure by manipulating hie opponent's pistol. But his final atrocity was the killing at Lincoln courthouse the two officers who had him in charge after his ar rest and trial, and who allowed themselves to be taken at a disad vantage through heedlessness and over-confidence. In all, I think, it is settled that about a dozen men were done to death by his individual band, and that, perhaps, about as many more fell in affrays with him and his companions. During these years, too, be neglected no opportunity of plundering the people; and hundreds, aye, thousands, of cattle and horses were carried off and sold by him and bis gang. This fiend, rather than mau, was finally hunted down and slain when only twenty-one years of age by the gentleman you have just seen, and whose name I have just given you—Pat Garrett, the then sheriff of Lincoln count}’." The multiplication of military ti tles has been carried to such an ex tent in this country that men of high nominal rank are found in all pur suits and positions, from the highest to the humblest. Majors are man aging railroads, colonels are doing the duties of hotel olerks, and gen erals are waiting on restaurant tables. Men of military titles abound per haps the most in the civil service. It is a very poor sort of an official that isn’t a major, and one of no great consequence who is not addressed a* colonel. These things have created a suspicion of the genuineness of some of its titles. They have indeed inspired the hint that possibly in some instances the titles have been assumed for a purpose. Acting upon some such hint, the Postmaster Gen eral has ordered tbat the majors, col onels and generals who are register ing money orders, assorting mail matter and distributing letters shall set out in writing upon what awful fields they won their titles.—Denyer Times. Then Bobby Waa Put to Bed. Bobby—Pa, why can a man run faster than a boy? Pa—Beoause he is bigger, of oourse. Bobby (after pondering for a mo ment)—-Well, pa, then why don't the hind wheels of a wagon run faster than the front wheels.—Texas Sift tings. NUMBER 3. Toa have no doubt, oft had occasion to note; Though the garment at first seemed certain to please. That after some wearing the sleeve of your coat. Toward the shoulder was crawling by easy degrees. And that's what the clothier, of course, had in mind. When he said to his customer, "Long!—not at all! Tbe sleeve is all right as you’ll presently find, In cutting a coat we allow for the crawl. The expression was one wholly new to mo then; But It set me a thinking how well it ap plies Not merely to ooats but to women and men. In matters of life as they dally arise; Consider the shrinkage of human affairs— The promise, how great—the performance, how small! And lest disappointment should come un awares. Remember tbe sleeve—and "allow for tbe orawl 1" The statesman who asks for your ballet to save Tour country, so rashly Imperiled to-day. May covet an office and not be a knave, Whatever the fierce opposition may say. But the "platform" to which he so valiantly •lings. By which he proposes to stand or to fall,— "Resolutions,” remember, are slippery things . And In politics always‘‘allow for the crawl. ’• Tou are deeply la love with the sweetest of girls. An angel! In hoops—only wanting tho wings! (If angels could purchase sueli beautiful curls) like a seraph she smiles, like a siren she sings. Ah! splendid and vast are the fancies of youth; But down to plain facts they finally fall: And happy the couple who, finding the truth In conjugal kindness "allow for the crawl." In brief, recollect that In human affairs; In social connections; In travel and trade; In courtship and marriage; In sermons and prayers, home grains of concession must always be made. In fine, be a prudent though generous man; Vnfriendly with none, veracious with all; Believe la your neighbors as much as you can; And always be sure ta "allow for tbe crawL" -JNO. SAX. From the Artsona Kicker. A base fabrication.—A correspond ent of the Chicago Herald announoea that tbe editor and proprietor of thin paper reoently won $2,000 at a game of poker in a well-known ealoon and that we play the best hand of any man in the Territory. The artiole was sent out with the design of in juring us. In order not to seem a stranger here we occasionally drop in on the hoys and play poker, and* in order not to appear to be a tender foot we have occasionally raked in a few dollars, hut no one must charge us with being a gambler. As to the $2,000 business, the most nervy man in town wouldn't bet over $1.50 it he held four aces or a straight flush. Don’t forget it.—ln addition to the grocery in our front room, which is rapidly securing tbe cream of trade, we have established a tin shop in the rear of the shanty and propose to do all sorts of repairing. Later on we may add a harness shop and other needed enterprises. If we build in the spring, as we now figure on, we shall pat m a marble shop and furnish grave-stones cheaper than has eyer been heard of in Arizona. We may also add a grist-mill. James Gordon Bennett, Henry Watterson and Amelie Rives may have time to junket around the country and show off their clothes, but we haven't. We are always at home. The Chi cago Times may ridicule our grocery in connection with the Kioker, but there are no flies on us. Six bars for a quarter, and a horn comb thrown in. “Give us a call before purchas ing elsewhere.” A olerical looking gentleman, in hopes of obtaining a contribution, entered the office of a newspaper and finding the editor at his desk, said: “I am soliciting aid for a high toned gentleman of refinement and intelli gence, who is in need of a little ready money, but who is too proud to make known his sufferings ” “Why,” ex claimed the editor, u l*m the only man in this town who answers that description. What's his name?” “I’m not *t liberty to disclose bis name.” u lt_ roost be me, parsons. Heaven bless and prosper you in tbe work,” said the editor wiping away a tear. The editor says the look the parson gave him as he went out wilt haunt him to hia grave.—Kinsley Kansas Mercury.
