Anticipation of evil is the death of happiness. It's a good principle that adapts itself to any situn ion. Nothing is so reasonable and cheap as good manners. Childhood shows the man as morn ing shows the day. Aliy man's worst fault ia not to be able to «ay “no,” Some |x>ople seem to have been born A-ith their hearts out of joint. The pearly chain of the virtue* be £in» and ends with humility. He who gives you fair words feeds you with an empty spoon. An honest public opinion is more to ■ dreaded than dynamite. Compliments cost nothing, yet many people pay dourly for them. Sweep lirst before your door before you sweep before your neighbor's. Humility never falls short of its de nial da nor overleaps the modesty of (s character. So live that when the summons comes you won't fear the constable (hat sen ee it on ysu. They who teach the children to-day are moulding the character of the next generation. The people whom we never contra dict are thoae whom we either love most or respect moat. Evil habits are webs which are too light to be noticed till they are too a rung to be broken. The power of a man's virtue should not l>e measured by his special efforts, but by his ordinary doing. Four things come not back. The broken word, the s|ied arrow, the past life, and neglected opportunity. It ia a pretty saying of an old writer: That men, like books, begin snd end with blank leaves—infancy and sen il :,y. The simplest and moat familiar truth seems new and wonderful the instant that we ourselves experience it for the first time. 1 »citurn people always inspire re spect. It is difficult to believe that ■ 'iio has no secret to keep but that of own insignificance. 1'lie man of enlightened understand ing and persevei ing ardor has many sources of enjoyment which the igno rant man cannot reach. A little stealing is a dangerous part, Hut stealing largely is a noble art. Tie mean to rob a hen-roost of a hen, Hut stealing thousands makes us gentlemen. ■Is «ws Fanil. Customer—“See here, sir, this med icine ia a fraud. You said it was good for colds and you charged me 92 a bottle for it and it isn't worth a cent.” Medicine vender—"Oh, I guess you didn't take it right.” “Take it right! I began on the hor rid stuff just as soon as it came on.” “That’s what's the matter. You should have begun two days before the cold came oa." Job Printing of every description will be neatly and promptly executed at this office. A MOVMti CITY. The Virginia Chronicle says that from recent surveys it has been ascer tained that the entire city of Virginia has moved over thirty inches toward the east since the big fire of 1875. The Maynard block in Gold Hill is known to be gradually sliding down in the di rection of Gold Canyon, and lias moved nearly two feet since its erection. This movement is so gradual that it does not affect in any manner the safety of the buildings, as the ground to the depth of nearly a hundred feet to the bod-rock is knowu to be contin ually sliding. It is s well-known fact atnosg practical miners that the ground upon which Virginia City is built is what is termed a slide, and it is necessary to sink nearly 100 feet to find the natural bed-rock. These slides are caused by the constant crumbling of the rocks on the moun tain sides. The debris thus accumu lated through incalculable ages is con stantly gravitating downwards, and in a few hundred thousands of yoats what is now known as the site of Vir ginia City will be nothing hut barren bed-rock, worn as smooth by the action of the elements as the southern slope of Sugar Loaf mountain, and were it possible for structures built by human hands to stand the decay of time, the entire city itself would then have been forced out on the fiat be tween the mouth of Six Mile Canyon and the Carson river. ■» Half Wauled la dee. Judge Gerald Cummings is s re spected resident of Fort Worth, Texas, notwithstanding that he is immensely stout and a member of the legal pro fession. He tried many anti fat rem edies to reduce his weight without any satisfactory result. He dually went to the Hot Springs in Arkansaw, and much to his joy he lost considerable adipose tissue, and returned to Fort Worth in a most happy frame of mind. He thought and talked of nothing else but his loss of Mesh. He weut to the market one morning recently and said to the butcher; “Cut uic off twenty pounds of pork. ’’ The request was complied with. The Judge looked at the meat for some time and then walked off. “Shall I send the meat to your house. Judge?'' asked the butcher. “0, no, ’ was ttie reply, “I don’t want it. I have fallen otf just twenty pounds, and I only wanted to see how much it was.’’—Siftings. A Hrad fur Hasluru. Algernon: “Ah; my deah boy, so glad tu see you; and how is your suit with Miss De Rich coming on?” Agustus: “Weally, my boy, I can’t say that I’ve made much progress so far, but 1'vo hit on the right)idea now. Do you see this dawg?” "Of course, what a delightful Eng lish pug. Just like the one that Miss De Rich admired by the way. ” “It's the very one, my boy. She went into ecstacies over it at the dawg show." “Ah, I see; so you've bought it for her?" “No, for myself.” “For yourself ? What good can that do you!" "Why, my boy, can’t you see? Ra jove, the denh girl will have to take me or lose the dawg, you know.— Philadelphia Call. Mail'll sail Jaiin. John Smith was reading the morn ing paper. Suddenly he exclaimed: “Jones is dead. I must go to hia funeral. He went to mine, and one good turn dese rves another.” “What do you mean by saving that he attended your funeral! That's all nonsense,” ssid Mrs. Snvth. “No it ain't. Last year Jones rend that John Smith was dead, slid he thought it was me, so he attended the funeral, and now of course I ought to return the compliment.” “Well, before you go tramping through the mud, and standing in a graveyard catching your death of cold, take a square look at the remains, and see that you are following up the right corpse. If you are going to at tend the funeral of every Jones who dies you will never get through,” re marked Mrs. Smith. The tMlirflr Name Tor Holler Skating “ Can you tell me where the rink is?” asked a man on a Springfield ave nue car of the conductor. “The charioteer will inform you.” was the reply. The passenger sought the jehu by the brake and repeated the inquiry. “Wait until the postillion attaches the third horse and then I will have time to answer, said the lynx eyod head light on the car, referring to the boy with the superanuated nag who is posted opposite the court house. “The collosaeutn where they rotate on caBters is just at the brow of the aclivite,” he said a moment afterward. “I am going to stop there myself to revolve an hour or two.” "To what?” asked the passenger eyeing the victim of rinkotnania cur iously. “To revolve. That’s the aesthetic slang for skating,” said the driver as he threw the lines to his relief and made a break for the rink. —New York Evening News. She Was a Hood Dial Disappointed. An English Lord who visited this country was at a dinner given in his honor at a private residence in ISan Francisco. A little daughter of his host, who was too well bred to stare, but who eyed him covertly as the oc casion presented itself, finally ven tured to remark: “Are you nully and truly an English lord?” “Yes," ho responded pleasantly, “really and truly.’’ “I have often thought I would like to see an English lord," she went on, “and, and—” “And now you are satisfied at hist,” he interrupted, laughingly.” “N—o,” replied the truthful little girl, “I not satisfied; I'm a good deal disappointed. ” ■mllullug Ailvlt lirnrrulljr, Scene—Two little girls playing that they are grown-up people: You must accept this ring as a pres ent.” “Oh, no, I couldn't think of it." "Really you will oblige me if you will take it; you know it doesn't be come my complexion.” “Thanks; and in return I beg you will receive this pocket-book.” “I believe I must decline.” "Please don't. I was just about to throw it in the ash barrel.” The Nevada gold-seekers liave dis covered a nuw use for fowls. It is a common sight there to see men and women carrying a hen under one arm and a basket "f chickens under the other. When they reach their des tination the hens are picketed, and being already hungry, begin to scratch and eat. After two or three days honest toil they are killed amt their craws examined for gold.
