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.

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
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.

"Of course, what a delightful Eng

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.

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.

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 now you are satisfied at hist,”
he interrupted, laughingly.”
“N—o,” replied the truthful little
girl, “I not satisfied; I'm a good deal
