Certain stores are greatly exercised over our aucoestt in reducing onr goods to the lowest ratts, ami are trving to imitate us bj blowing wbut tboy are going to do some fEtnro time. To those we stately publicly: That we eLall not alter our plan ; that we vil continue to be always ahead in redaction of prices; that we herewith decline to keep up the pretwtnt prices eves and have this day made a still futher reduction. Olctich Brora iiw. Teamstehs' Gloves. M. W. Hodkins is at present manufacturing a teamsters' and logger's fc'ove, which outwears anything ever jet fold in this section. He makes them expressly for his patrons, and all bis work is warranted te bo of the best, jar.30 To-day is celebrated as the anniversary of St. Valentine, a worthy gentleman of the old school, who has long been recognized as the patron saint of lovers. HIS EARLY CAREER. Of Mr. Valentine's early career we know bnt little, except the reputation that an old historian allndes to him as being " a man of admirable parts and noted for love and chiv alry." His affectional disposition was the rock, in fact, on which his character split, and h;s stay in any particular city was not long. Irate parents, infuriated hnsbands and badly disposed brothers were continually interview ing him on important business. That Valen tine was really a bad man this scribe very much doubts. He was apt to be a trifle famil iar with his friends, and his easy, go-as-you-please stylo of entertaining people often led tt wieked surmises, the blaaae of which should have rested wholly at the deor of the sur misor. People who are disposed to rank hias with the pastors of Brooklyn and Chicago should bear in mind that the most innocent people are often similarly talked about. The Appeal takes pride in defending his reputa tion. A VICTIM OF GOSSIPS. Valentine, in a letter to Valerieus, a well kuown drygoods and crockery merchant doing business on the Appian Way, R m, says : I am almost, driven out of my senses by be ing involved in au unfortunate seandal. The gosbipiug old maids and childless dames of this city have utterly ruined my character. I can now imagine how you felt when yon got mixed np in the Tiber Hotel scandal, which the morning papers ventilated so extensively. I have a breach of promise snit eoming up in a few weeks and 1 want some smart lawyer to pull me through. 1 think the one yon had will bo just the man. lie's a terror, and no mistake. I think that I will be obliged to sell my 2,000 shares of Lake Come water stock to furnish money for the suit. Yours, VALENTINE. HE LOSES HIS HE IB. Valentino who had so often lost his heart was finally eondemned to lose his head. He came to his end in the reign of Claudius in the year 370. The accounts of the causes which led to the abreviation of Valentino by the heads-man's ax are somewhat conflicting. Some say that his writings displeased the Emperor, while later historians assert that he attempted to earry the Rome primaries by ballot stuffing, illegal voting and the circula tion of the sack, all being regarded high crimes in those days, and in order to set a fearful example, tho .Emperor ordered his head to bo chopped off. The execution was a matinee anair ana a well-benaved audience of several thousand people were present. The excitement was so great that peanuts sold as high as two bits a capful, and ies cream couldn't be had at any price. Yalentine had two brothers, ona drove a haek in Florence, and the other was agent for theChickering sew ing machine in southern Italy. His personal property, which consisted of some swamp land on tho island of Cypress and some real estate in Greeso, went to his mother. Soon after his death the young peopla with whom he was a special favorite chose him as their patron saint, and he was duly cannonized to help along the boom. In those days clothes, jewelry and garters were presented to ladies by their male admirers on the anniversary of his death. MODERN OBSBEVANCBS. Now adays the practice of sending tender missives to friends is kept np, but the pre sentation of clothing and bracelets is gener ally coppered by the wise children of thisgen eration. The plan of sending eoarse pictures to people, exaggerating their personal pe euliarities, is all the rage. A man with a bald head, three front teeth gone, aeollosal foot, red hair or a big wart on his nose, is sure to set an avalanche of letters. The ordi nary cheap valentine can be purchased for ten cents, the fancy ones range from twenty- five cents to five dollars, and in some of tho large cities a few range as high as $250. The latter as a rule, however, do not flood the country. THE POSTAL CLERKS The postal clerk is a sworn enemy and steady blasphemer of t. Valentine. Instead of sitting on a high Htool and reading the Il lustrated Times on that day the postal clerk is obliged to paw over two thousand valen tines and cram eight day's work into on without any extra remuneration. Ou the day following the suicides of that down troddon class of people are not infrequent. A WORD FOR THIS AMATEURS. To thb Editor of the Appeal : The entertainments of the Reform Ciub, of which I have been a pretty regular attendant for the past few months, are ou of our enjoy able local features. These entertainments are given, I suppose, for two purposes : to help get the Club out of debt, and to afford the people cheap amusement. That the exercises are perfect in their way, I do not suppose even tho members of the C.uh claim. I understand tho participants give their services " without money and without price." It is not to b expected that our local elocutionists are up to a Murdock Mr a Siddons standard, that our sing-tia are tho equals of Kellogg, Carey or Brignoli, or that those who take part in dram atic scenes are qualified to fill the places of a Thorne, a Coghlan, or a Rose Wood in the Union Square Theater, but it is, or at least it ought to be expected, that those who gener ously tender their services to the Club should have immunity from coarse ridicule at the hands of any portion of tho loeal press. Those who take part in these entertainments do not in the least object to well meant fun, but they decidedly object to vulgar abuse saudwitched in with slobbering praise. That our volun teers do not escape such iournalistic (?) coaisa ness is an unpalatable fact. When one sets himself np as a critic, and presumes to dis criminate between the good and bad features of an entertainment, ho ought to understand the elementary principles of criticism, an4 not, like a Dogberry, "write himself down an ass." He ought also to rise superior to the allure ments of cheap advertisemets, and elevate himself, if tho thiug be possible, above the groveling plane of petty spite. There is not nsneh encouragement in assisting in these Ciub entertainmanta when ono expects to see his or her name paraded vulgarly in a local paper. The people of Carson do not endorse the lino of conduct hero referred to, but lib orally patronize tho Club performances, ap preeiating tho meritorious features and cheer fully overlooking the shortcomings. ItfOCEMB. The Opium Law. The Supreme Court yes terday decided the Opium Smoking lw con stitutional, in the case of the State vs. Ah Sam, convicted in Humboldt county of visit ing an opium den for the purpose of smoking opium.

A Man who was Always Oct of Lbobt. There is a man in this city who went to sec the Baldwin Combination every evening, and yet ho says that ho never got his money's worth a single time unless perhaps on Wed nesday evening, when some loeal hits were in troduced. Ho went, ho said, to tho entertain m ;nt hoping to see a trapeze performer fall and break some bouea. Yesterday he poured out his woes to an Appeal reporter: "You see I've been for years past trying bard to see some casualties at a show. I'm never on hand howeyer. 1 used to go out to the Mechanic's Pavilion in San Francisco day after day to see Madame Celeste wheel Jimmy Kenovaa aaross the tight rope. I was sure that some day they would take a tumble and I was there every afternoon. Ono day I was too bnsy and missed tho show, and that same day, blast my infernal luck, if they didn't fall and almost kill themselves; and I not there Wasn't it awful rough on me, after gpundiug twenty-six dollars for tickets. I felt like a man does when ho carries stock two or three years, pays assessments all the while and sells out just before tho rise." "Is it possible," said tho reporter, "that you have ncrer seen a lion bite a circus man's head off!" "Never; there's no such treat ia store for me on this earth." "I saw ono once, in Chicago, bite a man's head off and swallow it whole.' Oh heavens! what a treat. Did tho blood spirt all over the sawdust and the audience cheer 1 " "Exactly." "Worth ten years of a millionaires life," said the man with a sigh. "I've followed cir cuses about for years and never had each a chance to enjoy myself. I once saw an ele phant hit a man alongside the head with his trunk, that wasn't bad for a small country town, but the man diUn't die, and of course that made the affair quite commonplace. Next day I was unwell and didn't attend, and would you believe it, a Royal Bengal tiger broke loose and ate up a couple of children. Of course it scored another miss for me, and I had to accept the cruel decrees of providenee. The time Busely fell from his baloon at Wood ward's Garden I was out of town and out of luck as usual. I went once and looked at tho rock he struck and saw some of the blood, but that was all. I was almost sure that some of those Dareues would get killed but there was no such fortune in store for me. I'd give moio to see a tight rope dancer come tumbling down into an audience than I wotii to see Barry Sullivan in Handet, or Johnny Mack in Kick aid III. You may think that my taeto is a little odd, but that's the wav I i-itl about it and 1 eau't help it. I'm goiug to the p'iow next Tuesday night, however, because I feel pretty sure that some of tho Skid wore Guards 'ill swell up and burst." AMUSEMENT? . .Jhn E. Mack Nat Dow P.

Ak jour drnggist far BOZODONT. ill Nonas from Empire. An ancient mariner who came up from the thriving little port of entry, Empire, yesterday, gave the Appeal man the following notes. The talk of the town is the fight between Mr. Martin, the school master, and a man namtd Domonic Ogerra. The two men had a quarrel yester day and drew six shooters; they did not shoot however, bat engaged in a rough and tumble fight. Mr. Martin hit Ogerra over the head with the butt of his weapon inflicting a wound which caused the blood to flow copiously. It is said that the affair grew out of jealousy for a woman. No arrests.

Editor Appeal: Yon will oblige me by con tradicting the notice in the Daily Nevada Tribune of last evening, stating that our tronpe closed its engagement on Tuesday evening, which the editor himself knows to be an un truth, as he came to my apartments himself to enquire if I wanted an announcement put in his paper last evening. Thinking it was not worth while I declined. He went away muttering to himself all the way down stairs. Although I could not tell what he was saying it was easy to understand what he meant. He knows very well that we had more than ene programme and that the public were not disgUBted as the receipt of the second night show, and furthermore wo were requested to give a third performance which we did witaa great change of programme, and consider it very childish for him to tell such an untruth bout me because I would not give him a chanee to earn a fe-v dollars. The receipts of last nigfet's house give quite a correct estimate of the iatiueuce of an ama teur newspaper ia this intelligent community. W. M Davenb. Manager of the French Troupe.
