Each lart;e city of the Union has a firm whose business is it to gather up advertisements from men who are exteusive patrons of the press and dole them out piecemeal to the small country papers. Once in the clutches of an advertising assent and a publisher's peace of mind is no longer at his immediate disposal. THE AGKNl's CONTRACT. Fearfully and wonderfully made is the agent's contract. We never yet saw one that we could understand and never expect to. They are framed so as ta mean anything or nothing. We have several on our' table now aud would print some but for the fact that we have foresworn the puzzle business for ever. Through these agencies we become acquainted with Heiubuldt and his Duchu, Hwstetter aud his bit ters, Dr. Ward and sozodout, Steinway and his pianos, Vick and his fl ral guides, Singer aud his sewing machines of endltss stitches, liver pads, magnetic belts, anti-bilious pills and severalcuresforcancers of years' standing. The prime idea of an agency is to get as many columns of space as possible for the least pos sible expenditure of cash on the part of the advertiser. The infallible "contract" fitinres largely in these transactions. The contract is a cast-iron, leather-bound, brass rivited-affair by which the publisher sells his space, principles, body and soul to the agency, with a first mortgage on his wife and children to clinch the bargain. He signs a solemn pledge to notice the "ad." each day for a year, sick or well, to put it jam up against reading mat ter at the top of the first column and with nine different kinds of display type. A fail ure t perform any one of these utterly im possible conditions vitiates the contract and the publisher don't get a cent. A CRITICAL TIME. As the time draws near to collect the country editor begins to show symptoms of uneasiness which gradually drifts into a condition of despair. He looks forward with fear and trembling to the day of judgment. He sends oh his bill and duplicate contract and a hum ble letter begging for money and mercy on half a dozdn contracts. In a few months the answers coiue in as follows : lour letter of the 17th at hand. Please state more explicitly what you want and send duplicate contract No. 17. I have to inform you that the liazuo of the 14th of November has never reached us. We cannot demand the bill from the firm of Power & C until the tiles are complete Bedkock & Co. Thenuiuberof thel4thof November ishunt ed up with the assistance of the entire office force and it is discovered that on accouut of a cloud burst having demolished the office on that day no paper was published. It is use less t explain, and the bill goes by the beard. The Soda Bitters bill in the next hope. The following explains the situation: Sorry to say that the ''Soda Bitters" men have gone into insolvency, and we were un able to collect. The publisher has a dim idea that he con tracted with White, Brown & Cu. for the ad vertisemeut, and not with the Bitters fellow, but rather than go to law aheut a trifle ot $50, grasps at the next Eastern advertiser and gets the following reply : The firm of Bilk A Graball decline to settle. Their "ad." was not next to reading matter on the 23d of March, as per contract. This firm is very particular about their "ads." If you want some No. 1 ink we can forward it at eight cents per pound cash in advance Please write and let us know about the ink immediately as it will be quite a saving to you te secure the article before the price goes Hp to ten cents. Enclosed is a column ad from Dr. Price, can you run it one year next to reading matter and top of column for $18 net. Cinch fe Co. P. S. Your rates on the sewing machine and cabinet organs ad are outrageously high. We don't want to buy your newspaper office out- If you coaie down to anything like variably decliu e to do se if the firm which or ders the advertising refuses to piy. They as sume the right to repudiate their contracts at pleasure on the grounds that the bills are riot collectable. How is a Nevada newspaper to know whelhur or not a New York or Chicago agency has collected these bills? BOGUS AGENCISS. There are scores of bous agencies in the East. Their aim is to get all the advertising possible inserted in newspapers at any price. The? collect for the same and never pay the papers a dollar. Recently the Appeal receiv ed a small ad frrn a new firm of agents for which they agreed to pay $5 for one year s in sertion at the end of the year. The Appeal replied: Will insert ad for 10 cash in ad vance. That was the last neara oi it. j ne Appeal is now iu correspondence with the Chief of Police in some tf the Eastern cities and proposes to unearth some of these fraudu lent agencies. It is high time the press looked after this matter and separated the chaff from the wheat. Thb Rr'CBHcan Primaries. There was but little interest manifested in yesterday's primary election.

Yesterday mr,nng she gave up the keys of the house au ; ieft the premises. Shortly afterward the landlady took occasion to in spect the place, and found that most of the crockery, tableware, cooking utensils and bed ding had disappeared. She procured a search warrant, and with officer Stern examined the premises of another house on the same street into which the woman had just moved. Her search was rewarded by the finding of a col ander, Btme bread pans, forks, blankets, tc, which she identified as hers. The cullender had E. B. Rail's trade mark on it, and a clerk in Rail's store swore to having sold it to Miss Forrest a few days before. The fork also had a mark upon it. The defendant interrupted the testimony with tears, wringing ml her hands and other theatrical exhibitions ot Uallic innocence which are supposed to have weight with the courts. W hen she took the stand she was assisted in her testimony by two French wo men and an interpreter. All four talked at once, and the Court made a strong effort to appear as if he understood every word. Th fact, however, that he preserved the same appearance of wrapped attention when they alluded to him as a " bald-headed old lutu mix '' aud " bean-eating Gasson," was taken by the audience as an evidence that his French education had beeu neglected. Miss Gabrial, after blowing her trumpet for about half an hour, was found guilty by the Court, who carefully strained the evidence through the cullender, and fined the defendant tf 10, with the alternative of five days in jail. At last accounts she was endeavoring to raise th money. Just openicg: Two hundred pieces new choice prints. An invoice of E. C. Burt's celebrated kid boots.

A pen peddler called ou Warren Wasson the other day aud wanted to show him some new styles of pens. He was allowed to do so and presently had about sixty varieties of pens spread out before Wasson, who looked them all over and manifested the greatest possible interest in thein. After spending about half an hour pawing over the pens and listening to the explanations of their peculiar qualities Wasson suddenly remarked, "1 guess on the whole these pens write first rate, but almost any pen can do that, want a pen that can spell." The peddler had his goods packed in about a minute and was getting out of the front gate. Departures. The following passengers de parted per southern stage yesterday morning: S. Piatt, I. Cohn, T.

His Spring stock, purchased in the East, is the best selected one ever brought to Nevada's Capital. It embraces Hverything riire and beautiful in the way of Spring and Summer fabrics, and in the lan guage of the showman, "must be seen to be appreciated."
