John and Sallie were living on a «ruall homestead upon which there was an un paid balance of $5OO drawing 12 per cent interest. Industrious and economical they were saving every cent to save their little home. Often in their quiet discussions they would count up the bad debts due them, which, if they could only collect would go a lo’g ways to wards paying this oppressive balance. On a Saturday night John went home with his week's wages and a bag of $lOO in silver, extra. "Here, Sallie, handing her the bag, is an unexpected payment of an old debts, what shall we do with it? Why John, you surprise me. from whom did you get it? Ohl it mutters not, lie replied ; the question is wliat shall we do with It? Sallie looking at the live solid roll-’, said. John you Inui better go and pay it on this note for our bouse. So John on Monday morning be fore going to work, went and handed over the bag and had the amount duly credited on the note In a few day's John returned home from his work, and to Sallie's great as tonishment had in his hand the identi cal bag of one huadred silver dollars. Why, John, how on .arth did you get that same bag of silver? Why Sallie you see tlie bolder of our note did not want to keep this money as it was silver, and he loaned it out with other sums of silver, and this bag fell into the hands of one of our old debtors, who was hon est enough when able, to pay us our just debts, but what shall we do with it Sallie? Just let it go w ith the other hundred dollars, said Sallie. So John went and had tlie note credited again. Not long afterwards John came home with the same silver bag: Whv. John, said Sallie, it seems we can't keep this silver from coming back to us. That's all right, Sallie, I reckon we can pay ii out as fast as it conies in. And that silver kept coming back tin til the five hundred dollars principal and interest was fully paid, the note taken up and the homestead secured. There is one thing, John, about this that 1 don't dully understand, said Sallie; 1 see in the papeie that these silver dol lars are worth only 80 cents; how is it that they are worth a dollar to us? Never mind, Sallie, we have our home paid for; we are out of debt, and when the silver comes back again 1 will build you that cow-shed I have promised you so long, and a chicken house, and a new fence in place of that old pole and brush fence, and make our home comfortable and convenient. Respectfully referred to Mr. Manning, Secretary of the Treasury. D. Cs It. Last evening, just before dark, a shoot ing affray occurred near the Mission Mills, the reason of which is at present Involved in mystery. A Mexican, whose mine cannot at present be ascertained, was riding to his home on the Medina, and had proceeded about half a mile from the Mission, when he saw two horsemen approaching, who, by their appearance, he believed to be Ameri cans. As they neared him, one of them drew a pistol ami tired at him, the bullet striking the Mexican at the side of his head and ploughing its way upwards through the crown of his skull. A short time after the man thus shot was discov ered lying in a pool of blood on the ground by two inhabitants of San Juan, and he was conveyed to the house of a Mexican named Joaquin; despite tiie serious wound the man recovered con sciousness and was able totell the above tale. On the Sheriff receiving informa tion of the fact Deputy Sheriff Bob Alexander was dispatched to ascertain full particulars, and if possible, te arrest the perpetrators, of whom however noth ing has been seen or is known. At the time of going to press Deputy Sheriff Alexander has not returned, though a telephone message that the man is not expected to live many hours longer lias been received.

THE SILVER QUESTION. the Subject. Shot in the Head. Madame Jarley's Wax Warks. 1-ROGIIAMME. What is tho Matter? Editor Shu Antonio Light What is the matter with the San Pedro Springs? Are they drying up? For some time we have Lad only about I<> Inches of water in the san Pedro ditch, whereas the usual flow is two and a half to three feet. This low stage of water leaves a margin on each bank of two feet of mud. exposed to the hot sun, eniiting malarious vapors, not only un pleasant but noxious.

No better advertisement can be gotten up for a communitv than such statements of hard fncta/and should bo <hdv appreciated by aIT Aiderman Lockwood Alderman A. 1. Lockwood has his say on Ills hold-over question in Hie Exprass. He s ivs that considering that Mr. Pauly was a very conscientious gentleman with a high sense of honor, he could not do otherwise than he did, and resign, and that he no doubt would be returded by the appreciative voters of the Fourth Ward where he was held in high es teem "The remarks of Aiderman Lock wood allow very damaging inferences as to himself in contrast to the action of Mr. Pauly. Uis arguments on the sub ject go far what they are worth, coming from one who is disposed to “hold over,” hut it is noticeable that the burden of the responsibility is thrown on the shoulders of the Mayor, who it is under stood voluntarily accepts the same. The .Mayor probably thinks he may as well take it with the many already saddled • n him. San Antonio Rtilea. The Suu Antonio Rifles drew a large number of ladies and gentlemen to Tur ner Hall last evening, who were desirous of seeing the entertainment this popular military company had provided. The programme was varied and interesting. Hie military tableaux giving episodes of a soldier's life being especially good. The silent manual bayonet exercise and other evolutions were all well executed. In addition to th- spectacular portion of the programme, the Beethoven Maenner cbor contributed appropriate selections of vocal music, and the Rifle Quartette sang "Tenting on the old < amp Ground” excellently well. After all the features of the programme had been presented, a delightful evening was brought to a close by a hop, w hich was hugely en joyed by all present.

Life's Philosophy 1886. Do uot hurry, do not flurry ! Nothing good is got by worry. Bide the hour to make the spring ! Take life easy; that’s the thing. Do not trouble, do not trouble! Heavy hearts make toiling double. Groans the back w ith loaded pain ? Laugh, and ’twill grow light again Do not sorrow, do not sorrow ! Grief to-day is Joy to-morrow. Life flows smoothly after fears : Eyes shine brightest washed with tears. Hark the children, hark the voices ! Somewhere, everything rejoices. Blasts without of winter ring, Yet inward mirth makes endless spring. Soon from elms will rooks b< caw ing. Youag lambs leaping, old folks thawing; Soon with a sunny April dawn Will daisies bright bedeck the lawn. Forward, then, to victory straining! Forward, as brave men, uncomplaining! TLe game's afoot, and Lere's the ball; Yonder the goal; on, comrades all! India. Ireland? Brood uot o'er them! Church and State? Fight, fear not for them! Statesmen baiHed. leaders lost ? Yet, courage, friends! Gods leads our host! Good gathers strength, and Io! Hie pow- ers Of darkness yield. The day is ours. Tho’ cloud and tempest wrap the sky, Yet wakes behind the Eternal eye. Watching, wondering, yearning, know ing Whence the stream, and where 'tisgoing Seems all mystery ? By and by He will speak anil tell us why. — London Spectator. —The most popular cigarettes are l ho Opera Puffs at popular prices. 4-7-1 y-85 Another Brakemen's Strike.

The brakemen will receive $BO per month In stead of $54. The freight handlers, who heretofore received 25 cents per hour are to receive 30 cents for day work and 40 cents for night and Sunday work. Shoe Operatives Dissatisfied. Milwaikke, Wis., February 22,—A general strike among the employes of the Milwaukee boot and shoe manufac tories is reported as imminent. At recent meetings of assemblies of the Knights of Labor, composed of employes of the boot and shoe manufactories, resolu tions were adopted to ask all manufac turers to agree upon a certain scale of prices, similar to that in effect in Brad ley A Metcalf's factories. The resolu tions were put in the form of a fermal demand and were to-day served upon the manufacturers, notice con tained the scale of prices which was asked to ba established, with the de mand that the various shop committees he notified of the intention of the em ployers nt or before 9 o'clock this morn ing. At the hour named, six manufac turers notified the committees they had refused to comply with the demand. T. T. Sneubert A Co., alone consented to adopt the scale formed by the men. Immediately upon receiving the replies of the manufacturers the executive com mittee of the Knights of l.abor was no tified by shop committees, and a meet ing was at once called to decide upon the next step. The meeting lias already been discussed at length, and it has been decided to order a general strike in the shops w here the demand was refused. About 61.10 men will quit work. Chinese Wrongs. New Yoru», February 22.—"11ie Mail and Express publishes the following in terview w ith Ching Hoy. Chinese Consul of this city, based upon a St. Louis dis patch, saying that the Chinese Imperial Government contemplates retaliatory measures on account of the treatment accorded Chinese subjects in this coun try : "1 cannot say that I am advised that an imperia 1 proclamation has been issued compelling all Chinamen of this country to return home, but I can say that the Consul-General at Frisco has sent out notices advising all Chinamen to leave. Whether the Government is back of this I cannot say. As to sug gestion of retaliation. 1 have no doubt measures of this kind will be taken by our government. If Chinamen aredriven out and outraged here, why can’t our people drive out all Americans from < hina? The good name of this country has been disgraced by the recent out rages. and the question lias become very serious. There is’ no protection to Chinamen at all. but American mer chants and missionaries are well treated in China, and whenever ill treated the Government Las taken prompt action, not only paying damages, but redress ing the wrong done. What 1 don’t un derstand is why the good people of the East remain silent. It certainly was not the intention of Congress that mer chants and others should be treated in this way. If nothing is done, commerce between the two countries, amounting to $50,090.000 annually, will be destroyed.” Cheap Rates. Chicago, February 22.—The Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe road to-day issued instructions to all agents to give orders for a rebate of $2O on the $5O, llrst-class ticket cut rate, and $5 on the second class immigrant cut rate. The same were quietly distributed this afternoon. The Burlington and Denver and Rio Grande, accidentally hearing of this im migration cut issued orders making first class coupons from the Missouri River to San Francisco $3O, and $2O second-class. It is understood that the Union Pacific officers, who had been notified of this last reduction in overland rates, will meet it promptly. To Suppress Gambling. Berlin, February 22.—Prince William, son ot the Prince Imperial, whois a Colonel of the Grand Hussars, has or dered every officer of that regiment to withdraw from the Union Club, on ac count of the reckless gambling permitted in the chib rooms.
