JltE OK CAItsO.N" a YOUNG BLOODS VVEliE
During the past v.x-ek several of our young
I'li.ods roceivod anonymous notes, written in
a feminine hand, very elegantly composed,
;Hi(l the chirography of the most modern Spen
ceriaa style. The notes in each case stated
substantially that the personal appearance of
the gentleman so addressed had so favorably
impressed the w riter (a lady) that an acquaint
ance with hi:n would afford her infinite de
light, and at the same time appointing a ren
dezvous. In each instance the note3 closed
as follows : " I trust, my dear sir, that you
will not ascribe any but the most honorable
motives to my seemingly immodest request,
for language fails to express the ardency of
my wish to meet you, and having no mutual
friends, I am at a loss to know how, other
wise, the end of my desire can be brought
about." The rendezvous were all
appointed fer the northern part of the city,
in the vicinity of one of Carson's most fash
ionable residences, and strange to say as it
subsequently turned out all of the engage
ments were made for the same hour. At
about 3 o'clock r. , on Christmas day, a
small, straggling troop of well dressed young
men might have been seen ISisurely wending
their steps toward a northerly direction, none
of them knowing nor caring upon what mis
sion the other was bound. They were all
fi'i'-iids ; but somehow or another, on this
particular occasion they shunned each other's
society .-their minds being absorbed to an
alarming extent. Each speculated upon the
mysterious mission he was bent upon. At
about 3 o'clock a half dozen bloods met at the
street corner designated by their fair writer.
They glanced at each othe, but said nothing ;
. some stuck their hands into their pockets,
whistled and sauntered a little way off, and
then came to a rest ; others remained stand
ing still, casting their eyes in all directions,
every moment expecting the arrival upon the
scene of their fair correspondent. But, alas !
no lady came. It grew to be 4 o'clock the
congregation of bloods was steadily augment
ing there must have been twenty of them,
when suddenly one of them mustered up suf
ficient courage to ask one of his friends what
tLe meeting portended. The accosted one
replied that lie did not know what the other
fellows were doing there, at the same time
button holing his friend, and taking him aside
from the crowd lie whispered into his ear :
" General, I'll tell you something, but don't
you repeat it. I've got an appointment with
a young lady here ;" and drew a note from
his pocket to convince his chum that he was
not exaggerating. The other looked at the
note, his eyes growing as large as saucers, he
cried out loud enough to be heard by the
whole crowd, " Sold, by Jove ; I've got one
too," drawing his note from his pocket and
exhibiting it. By this time the crowd gatli
ered around the twain, and each individual
produced his little "billy dux." The bloods
individual!' and collectively, agreed that they
were sold. They were sworn wpon the spot
never to reveal the sell, but a little bird that
was sitting on a tree in that vicinity on Christ
rcas day, flew into our office and let "the cat
out of the bag." The party of bloods, being
considerably chilled by their long waiting in
the cold air, adjourned to the Ornish', where
they drowned their chagrin and disappoint
ment in bumpers of egg nog. As yet no one
knows who the enterprising female is who got
so many young gentlemen by the ears ; but
she will yet confide her little secret to some
bosom friend, and then the whole town will
NEW YEAR'S ADDRESS.

Adams, will greet the patrons of this paper
(and the rest of mankind) with the customary
Aodrsss on Tuesday next, January 1, 1878.

RUNG A C)Ld"dECK OX HIM.
He is a prominent newspaper man in the
eastern portion of the State. He parts his
fciir in the middle. The part is over five
inches wide, which gives him an innocent
cast of countenance. To those who know
him not, he might be considered verdant in
appearance. He was riding, in a sleeper, on
the C. P. R. R. , and fell into an innocent
little game of pedro, with a Colonel, Professor
and Doctor. During an animated conversa
tion and a quiet deal, three aces were thrown
upon his side of the table, after which one of
the three naively remarked, with the greatest
coolness, " I wish that we were playing poker.
I don't know that I have been' favored with
such a hand for years." Our editorial friend
saw the game, looked up innocently, and re
marked : "I have been favored also. I
nave a pretty good poker nana myseit. ine
three looked at each other as he continued,
thuslv : " They call you Professor ?" " Yes."
"And you Colonel"?" "Yes." "You are
from the East, I believe V " Yes." "Well,
gentlemen," he concluded, rising, " You had
better take the next train back. We meet it
just the other sine of Battle Mountain. You
can't make a cent at this. They have been
teaching it in the Sunday Schools in Califor
nia for years. "
AU FAIT CLUB RECEPTION.
There was an unusually large attendance of
pleasant and refined ladies and gentlemen at
the reception of this popular club last evening.
The dancing was kept up until a kite hour
and those who were favored with invitations
pronounced the reception the most enjoyable
one of the season, so far. The gentlemen
comprising this club are certainly au fait in
management of a party. No guest of the
club's ever leaves one of its receptions with
out extolling the courtesy and good manners
that are to be met witli there. Carson may
well feel a little proud in the possession of
such a distinguished social club.

On New Year's eve the much talked of
German ball at Turn Verein Hall will take
place. Our German citizens have decided to
make this affair one of the most pleasant and
entertaining of the season, and no doubt their
efforts in that direction will not be in vain.
Stocks. The market continues to fluctu
ate in a way to displease the bulls. The
great clean up which they expected to make
ere the advent of the New Year has not been
reanzed at this writing. If there is anything
in Ophir, Alta or Justice, the mines which
have recently been so greatly talked up by
the insiders, why do they not permit the pub
lic to see their great deposits of mineral
wealth? The outsiders have precious little
faith in the assurances of the insiders, and
we do not blame them. Take out your bul
lion, you manipulators, if you have any and
declare dividends, and then the public will
place confidence in what you assert, other

Detective Ben Lackey was in the city yes
terday. He came in from a long and tedious
trip looking after well, he didn't say, but
judging from his good humor, we think he
succeeded in getting him, her or it.
Slight UrsKT. Yesterday afternoon a
buggy containing a lady and gentleman was
passing along Nevada street. Whethervthe
gentleman and lady were in love or not, we
are unable to say, but at all events the atten
tion of the driver was not sufficiently at
tracted to the team to prevent their shying
at a coal oil can at the corner of Robinson
and Nevada streets. The little buggy grace
fully reeled and landed the gentleman upon
the cold, cold ground, with the reins in his
hands. The lady held, if we may be allowed
to say it, manfully on to the near side. No
damage. Buggy righted, and all went
peacefully on in the direction of Franktown.
A good item spoiled.
Obstructions. Yv'e beg to call the atten
tion of the Street Inspector to the fact that
day and night, wagons are left standing on
Spear street, at the corner of Division, hy the
side of a large barn, much to the inconveni
ence of passers by. The other night a lady
stumbled over some lead-bars and chains ly
ing across the sidewalk and nearly sprained
her ankle. There is an ordinance on the
subject of obstructions, we believe.
Rodents. Travelers from Bodie report
that camp infested with rats, and the absence
of cats is a striking feature of the place. The
feline market of Caason is fearfully over
stocked. Why can not some enterprising
speculator take a cargo of these moonlight
warblers to Bodie and realize a handsome re
suit from his venture ?
Dead. Mrs. James Moore of Yallejo, after
many months of intense suffering, died in that
city on Thursday morning. She was an ac
coniplished musician and a most estimable
lady in all respects. Mr. Moore (who for
merly resided in Carson) has our very hearty
sympathy in his distress.
Funeral. The funeral of Maude, the lit

took place yesterday. The deceased was a
most extraordinarily beautiful child, and her
bright, angelic face will be missed by many in
this city. The bereaved parents have our
