The following pa ticulara of a shooting fTcy, which took place it Mineral Park, Kti., on the 10th instant, daring which the lead pills were thrown arouad rather careless and very little blood spilled, is furnished by "Na poleon." of St. Thomas: It appears W. A. Mix got on a jamboree, had some words with one A. K. Davis, who by mutual consent resorted to the back yard to settle. Davis bit Mix in the mouth. knocked two teeth oat, when one Sand ers came to Mix's assistance. Mix re tired from the field, bat soou reappeared, supported by an "Imperial Guard," in the shape of a six-shooter. While Mix was on the field Deputy Sheriff Buck baum flanked him, and Mix shoots at Bnckbaum three times misses him the first time, and hits nim in the same plaoe the succeeding two shots. Mix, be ing greatly enoouraged at bis snooeas as a marksinaa and the sheers of the spec tators, advances on Davis and takes a shot at bin, bitting him in the same plaoe that Buokbaum was bit. Davis then gets behind the well and shoots at Mix, proving to tbe crowd that he is folly Mix's equal as a marksman, and is also applauded by the spectators. Mix be. comes jealous at this and shoots at tbe crowd, wounding every man there in tbe place be wounded uavia anu oneaueuiu. One M. Moere then joins in tbe sport and shoots at Mix, ana kiiib van nu to a stamp some ten yards off. Meore received prolonged applause, whereat Deputy Sheriff Bnckbaum became great ly excited and rashed in Cap. White's saloon, saying: "Give me a gun! He has killed ma! aud I want to kill him!" Result no one killed, no one hurt. Mix was plaoed in jail and was to have an examination last Saturday. Hack. There is to be another race be tween!

Tbe Theatrical Troupe, which recently performed in Fanaoa, having made auite a bin bole in the fioanees of the faitaful of that Stake of Zion, tbe Mormons, for tin purpose of replenish ing their somewhat dilapidated coffers, devised tbe plan of getting up another race between tbe Deseret Colt and tbe famous raoer Coalburner, so tbey flatter ed the Gentile horse, said the he was a mueb better and swifter animal than the Deseret Colt, and could beat him any day in the week, and have sucoeeded in getting op aaotber raoe between the above named horses. - A Wmkt.t. Mail. Eureka Sentinel: A good deal bas been said eonoerning tbs " star" mail routes, and the defi ciency aeked te be voted by Congress by the Postmaster General, but it is not generally known that Eastern and South-' ern Nvada will be affeoted. The Post offioe Deportment bas aeked tor $2,000, 000. and tbe House Committee have agreed to appropriate $200,000. Should no more than this be voted it will out down tbe mails going Bouth from Eureka by stages, from daily to weekly, and it is doubtful if any contractor will hanker after the job. Thx Wkeklt Booms. The Weekly Bugle is published at Junotionville, Ne vada, by tbe Bugle Publishing Company, and Leonard Bennelli is editor. Juno tionville is situated in the lower portion of Lincoln oounty, near St. Thomas, and tbe Bogle Is the official paper of that locality. It is of letter-sheet size, and instead of using type the editor sets np the paper with his ready pen. A num ber of advertisements appear in the Bugle, and judging from tbe appearanae of the copy before us tbe editor will make his mark some day in tbe news paper world. People's Mabeut. Gub. Adelmao, of the People's Market, has just received a lot of fine beef and veal from Pahrana gat Valley and is now prepared to supply families with choice outs of the same. The beef is fat and juioey and is the fin est meat that has been brought to Piocbe for manj along day and the veal is young and tsnder, and both only need tasting to be appreciated. Give him a oall and examine the ohoice meats. Leap Tiab Pabtt Tbe young ladies of Panaoa gave a leap year party the other evening and a very pleasant time was enjoyed by all who were fortunate enough to bo present. During the even ing an elegant collation was spread. Miss Fiadlay and Miss Syphers were tbe instigators of the dence.'fcnd under their careful supervision of aourse everything passed on agreeably to all. Frank Uue was tbe 'bells of the ball." Inspecting. Charley Boe, Superin tendent of lbs Bristol Company, with Messrs. Crocker and Lewis of the same company, and Captain Mill, Superin tendent of tbe Raymond & Ely, last Tuesday visited Bullionville for the cur- pose of inspecting the operation of the roaster there. If the work performed by it is satisfactory to them they will have roasters sreoted for the Bristol Company. Tbs Roasteb. The roaster ol the Ray mond & Ely Company is now working better and ohloridizss the ors to double the percentage it did when Mr. Kilburn left. There is not anv doubt bnt what the roaster will soon be doing its work in exoellent shape. Episcopal Cbdbch.

Hank Donnelly, late Superintendent of tbe Eureka Con., in company with Senator A. J. Blair, arrived here last Saturday from San Francisco for the pur pose of inspecting the properties ol the Hillside Mill and Mining Company at Bristol and Highland. Mr. Donnelly, in company with Man ager J. B. McGee, made a thorough in spection of both tbe Hillside and Mendha mines and is very favorably impressed with the general appearance, tbe large quantitiee of ore in sight, and somewhat surprised at tbe immeose amount that bas been taken out. He thinks the out look is very encouraging and is confident that it will not be long before the Hill side will be plsced on a dividend paying basis. i Tbe Bristol Silver Mining Company hsve made their location just above town, comprising 600 sores, adjoining tbe east ern limits of tbe present township. Tbey will before long bave their boring ap paratus in position and begin sinking for flowing water. This done then opera tions will commence in tbe erection of their mill and furnace. It is not at all probable but that in the tbe course of the ,next few months tbe Hillside Company will creot works for the reduction of copper ores. At tbe present price that that metal commands and tbe quantities of it that there is here the working of it would yield a handsome profit to tbe company. The foundation of the old furnace bas proven to be a bonanza to iha Hillside Company; over $10,000 in bullion bas already been taken out, melted into bars, and tbere is still in sight about $1,000. It ia thought that some $24,000 in all will be taken out. The refinery of the Hillside Company started up on bullion last Monday taken from tbe old foundation, bat owing to tbe breaking of two of the oupelles was obliged to shut down Wednesday, but re fining was again resumed Friday. Mea.rs. Donnelly and Blair left here Thursday for San Franoisoo. The latter will soon return, accompanied by bis family, making Bristol his permanent place of residence. Dat OmoiAL Lettkb The following ii the official letter of A. S. Gould, Super intendent of tbe Day mine, dated Feb ruary 27 tb: In the drift from open oat (upper works) we bave progressed 21 feet, tbe faoe looking about tbe same, being all vein matter, with spots of very rtoh carbonate ore.

Kilbubn, who was the contractor for putting np ths roaster of tbe Ray mood & Ely Company, finished bis con tract and left Pioobe Saturday. He lelt the roaster in fine running shape, and bad be bad more time to spare would have made a suooess of roasting the ore. Abbiyed. A. J.

A very little red-pepper, mixed with food, imparts a pleasant and pungent flavor to it, but outside of that it is not very agreeable, especially if you happen to get more of it than you exact ly want.

Ttlauney has presented to the Fans Academy of boiences some new re sults obtained from a study of Perrey's tables of earthquakes from 1700 to loi'i. He - finds two groups of maxima, eoin- menomK in lin'J and 185b respeotivesiy, eaoh with a period ol about twelve years; and two other groups, commencing in 175C and 1773 respectively, with a period of about twenty-eigbt years, tie re marks that those of the first two groups ooinoide with the same times when Jupi ter reaches the mean longitude of 205 and 135 degrees; while those of the last two ooinoide with tbe times when Saturn reaches the same longitudes; whence he inters tbat terrestrial earthquakes have a maximum when these planets are iu the mean longitudes mentioned. Delauney attributes tbe inoreased number ol earth quakes in Winter, which Perry bas Louod to reaoh a maximum in November, to tbe passage of tbe earth at tbat time tbrouxb the swarms of meteors; and in like manner supposes the influence of Jupiter and Saturn te be due to their paaBing tnrougb meteor strains situated in mean longitudes 135 and 2G5 degrees. As a coQsequ-noe of this he ventures to prediot an increased number of earth quakes iu the years 188G, 1891, 1793 and l'JUU, eto.
