lit to address to W II Chaffee foreman
of the grand jury then in session a very
remarkable letter The evening of the day
on which it was written tho consul sent
copies of the letter by the hand of his sec

have teemed with all manner of

thoe reported sayincs ho could not
proiicrly be held as officially responsible
and since he was scan ely credited
with one statement before another was
made either exactly opposite of
or largely qualifying the first his
vagaries and blustering were regarded by
all but his own people as either laughable
or contemptible
Thisletter of May 0 to the foreman of tho

Experience of a lteautiful Phila
delphia Girl Her Devoted Lover Goes
West to Seek His Fortune
Minna Stauffer was as pretty a girl as
ever left the quaint little Dutch town of
Strasburg overlooking the beautiful Pe
quea valley and she was literally seeking
hex fortune in Philadelphia Brought up
in a farmers family she became weary of
the commonplace and monotonous labors
of the household Moreover she knew
that she was beautiful and had an idea of
admirers more pleasing and refined than
the stalwart young farmers who told their
love in a dialect almost as euphonious as
the jargon of the digger Indians So
Minna accepted the invitation of a married
sister living here and came to the city
This was not the day of the sewing ma
chine and girls were not compelled to
make shirts for a shilling apiece for a
smart seamstress could find lucrative em
ployment and Minna being skillful with
the needle soon got work with Miss Hawk
a fashionable shirtmaker on the east side
of Eighth street below Sansom
Although a bitter old maid and as ugly
as if she had been bespoken Mis3 Hawk
had a good heart and quickly became
fond of pretty employe who had no of
fensive vanity and did her work extremely
well but the old lady had her hands full
when Minnas beauty brought male ad
mirers who hovered around the door to
pay her compliments The most persistent
and sincere was a young Irishman named
Peter Kelley who was connected with one
of the city journals
At this time Mrs Margaret Tra villa kept
an excellent boarding house in Locust
street above Fourth and Miss Stauffer
went there to live
Living in the house was a young man
named Lilburn He was a law court re
porter for the preasand a bright fellow
but his career was handicapped by ill
health He was as delicate as a girl in ap
pearancea gentleman by birth but poor
He and Miss Minna became fast friends
He was a fine musician I and gave her les
sons on the piano while she nursed him
through an illness and they became lovers
At this time 1KJG the gold fever was
raging and Jason Lilburn determined to
tempt fortune by crossing the plains to the
1 Dorado in search of health and wealth
With some aid from friends he got to
gether sufficient means and consoling his
sweetheart with the hope that he would
return with enough to make their union a
happy one he started
After eight months danger and priva
tion be came in sight of Virginia City
The journey had restored him to health
and hLs letters made Minnas cheeks flush
with pleasure Like many men of fine
organization and slender physique Lilburn
had plenty of grit and he got employment
with the Wells Fargo Stage company
For some time the coaches out of Carson
had been held up and robbed by one man
and several drivers murdered Lilburn
offered to make a trip as guard and armed
with a heavy double barreled shotgun took
his place on top About ten miles from
Carson at early dawn the coach was halt
ed by a tall masked man pistol in hand
Lilburn let go both barrels and saw the
man go down The frightened driver
whipped up his team and made the next
station at a gallop A party went back
and found in the road the body of a noto
rious ruffian named Brannan For his
taking or killiug a large reward had been
offered and Lilburn received 3000 from
the stage company for his mornings work
He had a friend named Folger a shrewd
hard headed Yankee who knew the Carson
City country well His advice was This
deestrict is full of silver Go in and win
There is Mike Dalton an honest little
Irishman who has a claim and there is no
better miner between this and Frisco He
has had partners before and they always
made money Mike is in porphyry rock
now but he will win if some one helps
him But hes out of money Go in with
him Lilburn offered Mike 2000 for half
his mine and unconsciously became a part
ner in the great Comstock vein Mike
worked through tho rock and struck a bo
nanza But the last blast fired brought
down a fall of rock and the poor little fel
low was brought out of the tunnel crushed
out of shape and dead He had no kin
dred and Lilburn became a rich man He
took out 30000 of silver and In a few
months sold out for 00000
Up to this time he had received Minnas
letters but here they stopped He wrote
and wrote but no reply came He waited
and wondered until one day a letter came
from a strange hand evidently a woman
The writer thought it her duty to inform
him that Miss Stauffer had accepted a rich
brewer named Gross and they had been
Lilbnm set his teeth hard and passed a
sleepless night and then resigned himself
to the situation Poor girl She had her
living to make and was tired of waiting
and m loving consideration he justtliei
her and went into his work with renewi
energy The facts were these Among
Miss Hawks girls was a cripple who
hated Minna Stauffer malevolently She
slept in the store and saw the postman
first in the morning Minnas letters were
intercepted and at the proper time Lil
burn received tho epistle that crushed out
his hopes
In the meantime Minnas cheeks grew
pale and many silent tears were sued
Peter Kelley had become a favorite with
iiins Hawk and one day f righteued her by
declaring that he was going to the gold
mines himself and if he met his old news
paper associate Lilburn would oblither
ate him for bis trayson to the swoastest
craychure in America Peter Kelley did
eventually meet Lilburn and with char
acteristic vehemence told his story Lil
burn produced his letter and Peter asked
Gross Whos Gross There aint no
such man Some venomous owld cat has
written that letter and Id like to break
her neck
Inside of two days Lilburn was a passen
ger on the Overland and one fine day in
April 1S59 a gentleman stalwart and sun
browned with a broad brimmed hat on
his head stepped into Miss Hawks place
on Eighth street My name Is Lilburn
and I wish to see Miss Stauffer he said
The little woman dropped her scissors
Ohthe good Lord is it possibleshe said
Minna came out pais as a calla Illy It would
take a column to describe what followed
Miss Hawk ordered the sjiutters to be put
up and gave all the girls a holiday ihe
letter was produced the handwriting iden
tified and despite Minnas intercession the
wretched woman who had done the mis
chief was told to go and never show her
face again
Two weeks after Lilburn and his sweet
heart were married ia the Lutheran church
and left for San Francisco Philadelphia
Was a Confederate Soldier

To the Gazette
Arrangements are being made in Wichita
Wilbarger and perhaps Greer counties for
settlers to locate preparatory to the move
on Fort Silk As most of them will pass
through the big pastures north of Fort
Worth the land owners there will have a
chance to iuduce them to stop in
Tarrant county if they will We
were offered a location for a town
siteon the borders of the Indian Territory
where every member of our union should
have a town lot free with tho further as
surance that our people can rent land in
the vicinity to raise a crop The location is
nine miles from the Denver railroad on
Red river Propositions are offered at
railroad towns that they say will beat the
inland town site Our work is confined to se
curing contracts for our crowd on the Texas
side homes in town as cheap as they can
in the Fort Sill country then to get them
land to rent That leaves no room for hard
ships or enforced idleness and a guarantee
of one years supplies to support them the
first year on their Fort Sill homesteads
that with cheap railroad rates is our work
for each member
In answer to all offers to sell land to our
crowd wo have answered Cheap homes
in town with land to rent is our hmit Each
man can buy to suit himself
While no contracts are closed yet it is
safe to say now that every member cau foel
sure tho above arrangements will be made
Comparing them with your present situa
tion will settle the question Will it pay to
go this fall What can you raise From
twenty to thirty bushels of wheat to the
acre This office received a paper from
Greer county this week stating it is esti
mated there will be near 2000000 bushels
of wheat raised in Greer county
this year that there arc thirty four school
houses and fourteen postoffices in Greer
mid yet in 1SS7 the land sharks and cattle
men swore the man ought to be hung that
got up such a boom misleading poor far
mers It is true we lived poor and the little
dugout was our mansion it is true that the
cowmen done their best to aggravate the
situation but the settlor is like Johnson
grass he will flourish under difficulties if
planted on good soil
What attracted him to Greer Free
Did it hurt Texas towns Look at Ver
non and Quanah
Did it hurt the price or improvement of
their town lots
Did it hurt Fort Worth
Are not the prosperous settters the foun
dations of prosperous town
Why do we note this To lay aside prej
udice ami bring to our support now the
the fanner that will prosper most bv set
tling 10000 families nearer to Fort Worth
than the nearest point of Greer county
Will we have opposition
Dont doubt It for a minute and to warn
our members of that opposition and render
it powerless is our object in this note
We will answer their statements in ad
vance judging the future by the past Xo
member is responsible for anyones acts
but his own Ho cannot therefore get into
trouble except by his own actions Your
manager is not nor never was under con
trol of railroads neither did he ever get
1 cent in money from tho Denver railroad
or ever expects to However that is the
only lie told on us that we regretted was
not true Yet the Denver has treated us
nobly in cheap rates and accommodations
without which we would have failed in
places where we did not Wo like the
Denver but dont get pay from the road
This note is addressed to the new mem
bers who want homes with us Our next
will be directed to the Fort Sill move Both

Age of the Ohio
An examination of the geological struc
ture of the country through which the
Ohio flows shows none but the extreme
end of the valley to be of later age than
the carboniferous Portions are indeed
far olderr but the area covered by these
though perhaps extensive enough to allow
the development of some system of drain
age was never large enough to develop a
stream of any great size Xone of the
tributaries of the river either from the
north or the south flows through regions
more recent than the carboniferous with
the exception of the lower parts of the
Ohio itself and of the Tennessee which
border on the quaternary The lowest
formation in the valley is the Cincinnati
which is just touched at a single point and
only for a short distance about twenty
miles above the city
It may be stated then that since the
close of carboniferous time the river has
flowed mainly in the same channel The
vast antiquity of the river in thus easily
established and the existence of the wide
valley with its broad bottom lands is
readily accounted for The story of tho
river during the long period of preglacial
time would be simple For ages its waters
were probably poured directly into the
Gulf of Mexico an arm of which extended
northward into the continent at least as
far as the present site of Cairo Ills In
later time the Mississippi Missouri began
the formation of a delta which gradually
extending has left the Ohio a tributary
merely of the mighty Father of Waters

A Boston School Teachers Clever Method
of Inculcating Politeness
There is one woman in Boston who is de
termined that her sex shall not debar her
from putting a heavy mark on the next
generation She is a school teacher and
one of the few who do not undervalue
their position and its influence She has
suffered a deal in her time for the bad
manners prevalent in public places and
every year she has about fifty boys and
girls between the ages of 7 and 9 in her
power between five and six hours five days
out of seven and she thinks that it will go
hard if she docs not do something toward
inculcating manners into them and at
the same time hitting the parents a side
slap which may not be without its result
This is one of her methods Once a week
half an afternoon is given to recreation
and she invents games for the amusement
and instruction of her class so that while
they think they are playing they are really
learning something One of these games
the one iu fact which the youngsters eng
joy most is called street car The cen
tral aisle of the class room with its row of
seats on either side becomes the electric
A boy is chosen for the motor man This
post is given to a boy wlio has been very
good for the week and in a simple way
the teacher makes the class understand
how the electricity runs the car Another
boy is the conductor and they have paper
checks for fares The other children are
all passengers They are supposed to be
business men returning home to dinner
and it is impressed upon them that they
are very tired and very anxious to read
their papers and women who have been
shopping or to the matinee
One by one tho children sgnal the car
and the conductor rings his bell the motor
man turns his crank the passenger enters
walks down tho aisle and takes a seat Fi
nally all seats are taken nnd to point the
play the better most of the boys enter first
and take the chairs Then the girls board
the improvised car The boys being im
pressed that they are very tired politely
rise one by one and civilly offer the girls
the seats until every one is up but one boy
who is known in the game as the pig
Then the teacher enters She plays her
own part and the children are supposed to
be her old pupils who are glad to see her
and all tha girls even aro anxiousthat she
should take their scats and still tho pig
glanced at with surprise by all the chil
dren sticks to his seat Xow this game
is very popular with the class but no one
enjoys being the pig
The teacher says that she already notes
the great improvement which her pupils
show in manners They are most anx
ious to do civil things for one another
and remarks the teacher do you not
think that they tell this story at home
Do you not think that the pig gets shown
up by those little ones in his true colors
I do not know if the papas and older broth
ers are shamed by it but I am sure that I
hope the are and I mean them to bo
