MAYSVILLE MONDAY EVENING DECEMBER 12 1881 Vol 1 No 18
THE ROUND Ott BIFJ
Two children down by theslilningstrand
With oyes as bluo as tho summer sea
While the sinking sun fills all tho land
With the glow of a g lden mystery
Liuighing aloud at the sea mews cry
tfazlng with joy on Its snowy breast
Till the first star looks from the evening sky
And the Amber bars stretch over tho west
A soft green dell by the breezy shore
A sailor lad and a maiden fair
Hand clasped in hand while the tale of yore
Is borne again on the listening air
For love is young though love be old
And love alone tho heart can till
And the dear old tale that lias been told
In thedaysgone by is sunken still
A trim built home on a sheltered bay
A wife looking out on the glistening sen
A prayer for the loved one far away
And prattling limps neath the old roof tree
A lifted latch and radiant face
By the open door in the falling night
A welcome home and a warm embrace
From the love of his youth and his children
bright
Ah aged man in an old arm oliair
A golden liht from the western sky
His wife by his side with her silvered hair
And the open book of God close by
Sweet on the buy the nloaining falls
And bright is the glow of the evening btar
But dearer to them are the jasper walls
And the golden streets of the laud afar
An old church yard on a green hillside
Two lying still on their peacoful rest
The fishermans boat going out -with the tide1
In the fiery glow of the amber west
Childrens laughter and tho old mens sighs
The night that follows the mornings clear
A rainbow bridging our darkened skies
Are the round of our life from year to year
WONDERFUL KIFLE SUOOtINtt
Some of tlio Exploits of Prince Otto th
Boy Chief of the Nez Perces
Prince Otto the boy chief of the Neiz
Perce Indians the protege of Captain
Macdonald and without exception the
most wonderful rifle shot in the world
gave an exhibitin of rifle shooting at Piatts
Hall last week that was far superior to the
best work ever done by Carver or Dr
Ruth The audience was select and in
cluded several English French Russian
and Italian officers and every one present
was satisfied at the close of the exhibition
that they had witnessed the most wonder
ful feats ever performed with a rifle Af
ter going through a manual of arms that
would puzzle the oldest militia general in
the Union Otto commenced shooting A
five cent piece was placed upon tho top of
the head of the figure Ottos back being
to the object the word about was given
and the coin was peered through the cen
tre He then put down his rifle six feet
from where he stood turned a summer
sault caught his rifle again fired and cut
the string of the suspended figure at which
he had previously fired
A pistol barrel was then placed in a
steel frame behind this was fixed a razor
with the edge facing the audience On
each side of this razor was a glass ball se
curely placed The pistol ball razor and
balls were masked with a covering of
ytiite cloth The boy was then blindfolded
and his back turned to the pbject Thp
About face was given when he fired
clowri through the pistol barrels split his
single rifle all upon the razors edge and
broke both glass balls on tie rjght an 5

l6fp This remarkable feat was performed
by thoboyB sense of location Then a
loaded pistol placed diagonally from where
Otto stood Three balls were sot swinging
in contrary directions Otlo fired hit the
trigger of the pistol and broke the three
bails Eight metal balls were then screw
ed on the ten foot frame On tho sides
below and above balls were set swinging
in every direction Macdonald stood in
front of the boy who then fired over his
head and at each side of him and be
tween his knees breaking the balls from
any and every part where they were sus
pended behind MncDonalds back
A target was then put up behind Mae
Donalds back The boy then went
thrcuirh the same performance standing
opposite MacDonald and rung the bell
which is placed at the extreme 1 ear at
evervshot bv caroming on the metal balls
Six small lighted tapers were then arrang
ed upon a slender perpendicular pole
then while in the various postures of
vaulting and tumbling Otto extinguished
each respective light with his rifle Glass
balls were thrown up in the air in every
canceivable direction These Otto broke
promiscuously without sight all at for a
large business card was fastened over the
point of his rifle
This description of shooting he con
siders most simple and though 70nderful
to the spectator scarcely worthy his own
prowess Ottos average in this class of
shooting is ninety eight out of one hun
dred Otto placed his weapon at a point
distant six feet from him then at the word
ready two glass balls were thrown in
the air He tumbled caught his rifle and
broke both of these balls with one shot
Twelve glass balls were placed upon a per
pendicular pole in exact rotation Otto
loaded fired and broke every one of them
in twelve seconds Ottos favorite weapon
is the Winchester rifle one of which in
token of admiration was presented to him
by the Winchester Rifle Company To
close the performance Otto his left arm
was securely tired to his side loaded aimed
fired and broke a large number of glass
balls with his right arm California Ad
vertiser
When he earned a miserable living in
Rosita Colorado by doing errands for a
stableman he was called Old Man Bassick
and his wife and daughter worked at the
washtub One day he found ore in a
mountain near by and within the year
has become a half niillonaire Now he is
respectfully mentioned as Mr Bsissick
There are those who sneer at tho familys
ignorance as the following anecdote shows
Mrs Bassick was at Canon It was noticd
that she frequently walked out upon the
hotel porch as if looking for some one
Do you expect friends asked the ob
sequious Boniface No inc jd she re
plied Im expecting my phantom
II er pretty plucton for which she had paid
3000 afterwad rolled around the corner
Mr Ash mead Bartlett is according to
Buckle one man in 30000 for that ac
cording to him is the proportion which
men marrying women old enough to bo
their grandmothers bear to the popula
tion
Magnificent pine forests have lately
been discovered on the upper4 yraters of
the EfaBkafccoewahnd explorers have
traced them fifty miles up the shoulder of
the Rockyiouritains
