A German friend has kindly furnished the Appeal with a translation of the leadiug inci dents in the life of the great violinist, August Emil Wilhehuy, the translation having oeeu made from " Pierer's Couveizations Lexiiiou," which is a standard German encyclopedia. The family name is Wilbeiuiy, the over joked "j" having been substituted for a "y" probably as an advertising dodge. Angust Emil Wilhelwy was born September 21, 1845 at Ansingen, a village near Wiesbaden, about one hour's ride front Frankfort on-the-Maiu and almost in the heart of Germany. His father was a lawyer, and hie mother, a highly cultured lady, was descended from a long aud celebrated line ot musicians. Young Wilhelajy received his first instruction in ruiuic at Wiesbaden, and made his first appearauce in public in that city when only nine years old Twe years later (1856) he appeared at the Royal Theater in Wiesbaden, where he creat ed a genuine sensation as one of the most promising of young violinists. In 13G1 heat tr.ictoil the attention of Liszt, the eminent composer and pianist, on whose advice young Wilheuiy entered the Conservatory of Alusic at Leipsig, remaining there from 1861 to 1864, Ho traveled through Switzerland, Holland and England, giving concerts, in the years 1885 and 1806. In 18S7 he appeared iu Paris and the principal cities of Italy. He played a long and highly successful musical engagement in St. Petersburg in 18G8. In the years 1869-70 he reappeared in England, extending his tour through Ireland and Scotland. In 1871 he Made the circuit of Holland Sweden, Norway and Denmark. Wilhelmy made his greatest reputation as a musical director dur ing the world-famous Wagner concerts at Beyreuth (1877). In the following year, 1878, Wilheliny came to the United States, since which time his success has become a part of the musical history of our country. Anxious to set is Court. Yesterday the Sheriff, who was at the rear of the District Court-room, found a man leaning; np against an awning post very much dejected. Mr. Hill, who is a kind hearted and well disposed man, accosted the stranger in sympathetic tones and begged to know what canker worm of trouble gnawed upon his sonl. "The rirv's drawn atrain and I'm left behind," was the repiy, as the man swallowed down a sob. "I've lived in Carson twelve years, paid taxes and raised a family aud never got on a jury yet." "That's nothing," said the Sheriff cheerily. "Y'onr time's coming. Come, brace up and dou't feel bad. We all have our troubles in this world. I'll take you over to Justice Gary's and tell him how you are fixed perhaps he'll let you get on one of his jury's," At this the tnau brightened up and the two men went over and laid the case before the kind old Justice. On hearing the man's story his face assumed a look of genial benevolence, and he was willing to do all in his power to make him happy. "I can't put you on the jury, but I caH summous yon as a witness, llieres a vulvar language case coming up to-day, and we can put you on and ask you questions about the bad character of the accused." "Anything Judge so long as I can get into court. 1 believe 1 d go en tne stand as a nun ing expert before I'd miss getting mixed up in a trial. The man was on the stand in the afterneon where he opened the ball with a biographical sketch of his life and stayed in the witness chair two hours before the lawyers found out that he didn't know the first thing about the case. He lett tne stand reluctantly, ana when last seen was begging the Coroner to put him on his next jury. BRIEF MENTION. The Shot-cow Rafflb. The billiard-room of the Ormsby House was a scene of consider able excitement last night oyer the raffle for a shot-gun. The gun was a Parker breech loader, and with the gun went a shell-belt and 150 shells. The chances wers limited to 80. The tickets went off quite rapidly, as the gnn was wen worth 1UU, though second hand. The takers of chances met at 7 o'clock and shook dice on the billiard table. There must have been fifty men about the table watching the dancing cubes as if their lives depended en it. As the names were called off the men threw, and a particularly bad throw would be greeted with yells of derision from all sides. When T. B. Winston threw 19, the smallest throw of the evening, the propriety of evicting him from the room was seriously considered L. L. Elrod finally scored forty, which was tied by J. E. Beam and E. D. McKinley. For the next fifteen minutes it was so quiet that you could have heard a spittoon drop anywhere in the room as throw after throw was made, each man en deavoring to beat 40. THE WINNING THROW. When the name of J. M. Hetrich of the Mint, was called he was not present, and I young Chris Zabriskie threw for him, shaking out 16, 13, 12, making a total of 41. Prob ably no nin in Carson wanted a shot-gun as much as Hetrich, and no one had less expec- pectation of getting it. He arrived a few miuntes later, treated everybody in sight and I gave young Zibriskie 5 for doing so well. Hetrich has taken chances at ratHos, ring - cakes, church fairs and lottery drawings for I years and never won anything before. He says the news almost paralyzed his mental faculties and he felt like a man iu a dream. Each and every man who didn't win de- j nounced rafiles as humbugs and frauds, as I every man who pays a dollar for a chance has a perfect right to do. Change of Proprietors. Mr. J. B.Pronlx haa bought out the blacksmith shop of Mr. John Gibeau, and will collect all bills due the lata coneern; ha will not be responsible for the debts, however. Mr. Pronlx is a competent and thorough workman in all de partments of the trade, and by prompt atten tion to business will merit a fair share of pat ronage. A Straw. Ths first "straw" of th season 1 comes from the Grand Jury room. A vote on the Presidential candidates Yesterday stood as fellows; Blaine, 5; Grant, 4; Washburn; Tildenf2; Thurman, 1. AlltheGiand Jurors roted except Dunbar, who was undecided. After Wednesday next the fare from Reno to Kew York will be $55 for second class pas sage and 925 for emigrants. The Grand Juki Urder Way. The fol lowing Committees on the Grand Jury were appointed by Foreman Helm yesterday : To examine into the offices of County Auditor, Treasurer and Assessor : D. Bliss, J. E. Dealy and J. M. Benton. To examine Sheriffs office and County Buildings : W. O. Broadhead, Dean Hatch and Peter Cavanaugh, Jr. County Clerk J. P. Meder, M. C. Gard er and N. M. Jellerson. Precinct and city offices D. G. Kitzmeyer P. B. Ellis and J. Q. A. Moore. To look into the matter of illicit sale of opium Jl. Uunbar, J. ti. Uneney, and James Spurgeen. A Cook Out of Luck. A few nights since a man who manipulates the palatable slap jack over the cooking range of one of the leading restaurants in this city visited a well known fashionable resort of Carson known as Big Pede's. Here he claims he was robbed of $55 by a strange female in whose honor and integrity he had the fullest confidence He was at first determined to secure her ar rest, but after more sober reflection concluded to let the matter drop. Times are hard and he has concluded that the poor girl really needed the n o ley. Remarkable Man. A man died in Maine the other day named Aaron McKeney, who was 106 years old. He was nexer sick a day in his life, never received or sent a telegraphic message, never saw a locomotive or steam boat and never subscribed to the Morning Appeal until after his hundredth birthday. The Cat. There are very few people in the world who would not willingly change places with the house-cat, A cat really has no trou bles, and maintains a life of ease and luxury at ether peoples expense, which throws over the existance of a bank President in the shade, Nine square meals a day, and hours of indo lent leisure alongside the stove on an eight dollar rug, U the average gait of the cat's occu pation. Petted by fair women, pampered by kindly men and all its wants provided for by children. Its only moments ef danger are when the midnight boot-jack cleaves the air for its special benefit. But it never hits it. The man don't live who will assert on his honor as a gentleman, that he ever hit a cat with a boot-jack or anything else. These dangers are easily avoided by the agile and thoughtful cat, and are considered by it as the risks which spice and flavor i s nocturnal amours. A cat never dies any mot e than a male. It haunts houses from gener ation to generation, and while stalwart men wither with the blight of time aud the cares f business, the cat live3 on, oblivious of dis ease, careless of human misery and defi int of time; ever drinking of the spring which rc juvinates its being, while it ft e Appeal devil has lust come in to announce tLut about 4 o'clock yesterdey morning he blew old Dobson's torn cat to pieces with a shot gun. laughs at fate, but a shot-gun lets it out. Surra Nevada News. It is rumored tba ore has been found 1200 feet north of the Sierra Nevada incline. It is said to be eight feet in width and assaying 90 per ton. How true this is the Appeal reporter has no means of kuowing, but has it from good authority that a few days ago some barren looking stuff as found 900 feet north which assayed $112 per ton. It looked so bad that it was being taken to the water dump, when Ike James assayed it and got the result above stated If this be true the Sierra Nevada is big enough to cut up into five mines, and the holders of the stock who are now so despondent will see the day when they will realize handsomely on their investment. J. M. Dormer is to issue a new paper in Candelaria. A 50 cent assessment was levied on Belvi dere yesterday. Plummer had a good house in Virginia City last evening. The strong man of Reno proposes to wrestle Roman style, in Virginia shortly. The Appeal acknowledges the receipt of cake from the Ricord-Stone wedding. Dr. D. Banks McKenzie will positively land his grip sack in Carson this afternoon. R. D. Ferguson is reported quite well and as robust as ever. Disease will never kill mm: he will probably be kicked to death by a Bodie mule. The ladies and friends of the Methodist Church will give a sociable to-night at the residence of Dr. H'irrick. A cordial welcome to all. The friends of Will. Rioord deny that he eloped with Miss Stone. The marriage cere mony was performed by an Episcopal minis ter in San Francisco with the full consent f the parents. A $2 plaster n Utah is just at present hav ing a sickening effect on the stock holders. Oriental and Real del Monte make a modest demand for 50 cents a share from the pockets of the shareholders. John Gregovich, brother of Mike Gregovich of the Monarch Saloon, left last night to visit his boyhood's home in Austria. Mr. G. leaves a large number of friends in Carson, to wish him God speed on his journey. In the case of Frevert vs. Elder in the Dis trict Court yesterday, N. Soderberg asked that the Sheriff be allowed to withdraw the writ of attachment of Jannary 23rd, 1880, for the purpose of amending the return so aa to make him subject to writ in case of V. A T. R. R. vs. Elder out of Justice Court. The order was granted. 45 Yearn Before the Public THE OEUSLE Dr. C.

A man who claims to have came down from Lake Bigler, reports several feet ef snow in the mountains, and avalanches as thick as black berries. In his excited imaginations he sees snow slides at every turn and estimates about four regular old fashioned Alpine avalanches to the square mile. A gentleman who has kept posted on the man's movements for seme days past as serts that he has been drunk in the rear of a Carson street saloon ever since Tuesday. He is doubtless the same manjwho reports big con flagrations in the woods in the fall of the year. A New Dramatic Star.- It is reported that Mr. Otto Greenhood contemplates going upon the stage in Shakspearian representation. He has not as yet decided upon the character he will assume, but the role of the apothe cary in Borneo and Juilet is one eminently fitted to his ab ILies. Since the deth c 'Needles,'' the Comstock tragedian, by star vation, there has been none who could play the part in the proper style. Mr. Greenhood will ef course be obliged to diet himself for a few weeks, but he won't mind that. The One Price Dry Goods Store. All the divorce suits started iu Carson arise from the fact that husbands are driven near ly cazy by the extravagance of their wives. By trading at II. Cohn's these troubles can be happily avoided.
