' THK BLACK HILLS.
"I am so tugged by fortune and
worried with disaster that I'd set my
face against nny chance to mend It or
end it." Such waa the exclamation
of a friend in tho midst of a quiet lit
tle talk that we were havlog on the
aubject of the Black Hill. He would
bo rich that he might be happy. 'TIs
not a craving for tho glltterlug sab
stance per se ; ho would not hoard It
In a miserly manner, he would be no
Shylock, but Is constitutionally of a
lordly disposition and would live in
royal style. The circumscribed ex
istence and moan ways of poverty bo
doth despise. With deep concern we
suggested In a whispering, melan
choly tone, the great danger of too
close proximity to tho red skins.
Our anxious gaze perceived no relax
atlon of the rigid features ofhls stem
face, on which was stamped irrevo
cablo determination. Thinking to
intimidate him by classical allusion
we murmured gently : 'twere better
to "bear those ills we have than lly to
others that we know not of." Did his
face pale and frame tremble with dire
apprehension? Not a bit of it. A
very sou of Mars he seemed, with
flashing eyes and awolen muscles, as
he said, in steutorlan tones : ' I will
go." Most delicately and affection
ately we have warned him. Our
duty's doue. We drop a tear of re
grot, and hope for the best. If he
goes and gathers heaps of gold aud
returns, wo will smile upon, ai.il drink
to him a toast. But If, purchance, ho
has to send back for help to roturu u
wiser but not richer man, we cau only
remark : "I told you so ; I'm sorry

Our "devil" undertook to make an
estimate of the number of parenthe
ses used by tho local joklst of the
Louisiana Preu In tho course of a

ho gave up the problem in disgust,
aud concluded that If the joklst had

The Independent of yesterday artves
the following: "Miss Mlttle Mndd, a
school teacher near Gallant Green,
made a narrow escape from death on
Saturday last. It appears that Miss
Mudd was sitting in front of a tire
Placo in which a fire was burning,
when her clothing took fire from a
park. Under the excitement of the
momont she ran out of doors and In
as Instant became enveloped In flame.
She was qnlle seriously burned about
her lower limbs ami her riirht hand.
Her sister, Mrs, J. T. Mudd, was also
quite badly burned in her efforts to
extinguish tho fire. It Is a more ac
cident that the young lady was saved
from death by Ihe falling off of ome
of her clothing. Dr. Geo. D. Mudd
rendered medical nid and considers
her In rather a critical condition."
