..APRIL 'J. 1884 A. S. Goci.1) Dead. A dispatch was received in Pioche on Tuesday morning from Mr. A. K. Grim stating that Mr. A. S. Gould had died in Sacramento on Monday. Mr. Gold has been engaged in the newpaper business on this coast as well as that of mining, and in the early ilays of Idaho owned and published a newspaper in that Territory, and at one time was on the editorial staff of the San l-'ianciaee Alta. For months, while in l'ioche, all our residents perceived that lie was troubled with softening of the brain, occasioned from drink, and that the disease was growing on him very rapidly; but let us spread the broad mantle of Charity over his faults, for he has done much for the people in this vicinity, and had a kind heart and aided many families by giving employment to married men. Previous to his departure from Pioche he had trouble with his wife, and there is now a suit for divorce pending in the District Court here, but the Great Judge above took unto himself the case and has decided that they shall be, upon this earth, separated forever and ever. Mr. Gould was of nervous and restless tempermenti and this trouble probably hastened his death; but, however, it was only a question of a very short time, for u man in Mr. Gould's condition had not many weeks to live. Mr. Gould, eight years ago, was Clerk of the Supreme i.'oin't of Utah Territory. A gentleman who was engaged in gathering statistics of Nevada for the ( iovernment two years ago, writes from Knoxville, Tennessee, says: "Among the statistics I was gathering in reference to Pioche, is this: ' Pioche has the graves of 119 murdered men; 43 in one row, called Murderers Row.' Colorado claims that the above is incorrect and that Pioche lias been overrated. Colorado claims to have the 'boss planting trroond' for men." Pioche has been underrated rather that overrated in this matter. There is no mining camp that will compare with it in this respect. During the early days and lively times, the miners employed by several of our companies never thought of going to work without the lli-shooter by their side, ana tho companies em ployed men at $20 per day, whose only labor to perform was to fight when occas 31011 required it. A pitch-battle once took place between the forces of the Phoenix and Raymond & Ely companies in a drift 400 feet below the surface. This camp had such a bloody name in its early days that our citizens could not even travel in this State but what the people would stare at them in wonder, as though they were some kind of wild beast, ihe peo ple in Colorado don't know what a live camp is. Another Freight Line to be Pdt On. J. W. Hill, an agent of the Eureka Jt Palisade. Railroad, .has been iu town several days taking observation as to the feasibility of tha trailroad company again putting on a line of freight wagons be . tween Eureka and Pioche. Mr. Hill has shown by figures to our merchants that, by the present reduced rates, thoy will be able to Have their goods snipped tram San Francisco and the west to Pioche, via Eureka, from 40 to 90 cents less per 100 lbs., according to the character of the freight, than they do by shipping to halt Lake and over the Utah Southern to Mil ford. The freight will arrive quicker over the Eureka route, and as the railroad company owns big teams, there will not be the difficulty of getting heavy machinery to this locality, which lias been expen enccd by the mining companies during the last three years. Anniversary Ball. llie ball given by the Order of Odd Fellows, as all the dances previously given by the Order, was an cniovable altair. lue music was very good and dancing was indulged in until 3 o'clock Thursday morning. The hall was tastefully decorated with flags, pictures and wseathes of evergreens. Tak ing into consideration the large amount of sickness among the families in Pioche at present, the party was well attended. Mendha. There is quite a little town at the Mendha mine, Highland District, now. There are three families living out there, the men working in the mine have their own castles to live in and the pros peetors all dwell in palaces of their own On going to the Mendha, after crossing the divide at Highland, when a person gets the first glance at the buildings, they imagine they Dehold a large city similar Day Company. Three men have been placed to work getting out rock, for the repairine of the furnace. Prospecting is still being pushed ahead in the Day and Mendha mines. There is no telling at what time the furnace will start up. We learn from Supt. McNally that there is no truth in the report that ore was being taken out of the mine for shipment to the furnace. Attention, Citizens. For making suits of clothing, I have reduced my prices to those of Ban r rancisco. 1 am now prepared to make Suits of Clothes for $45 and upwards, according to quality of cloth, and cants from $12 upwards. What excuse can a man now have for sending East to get a suit of clothes made? All work guaranteed. R. Adams, Tailor. Banks. Bristol has two mora banks, John Quinn and Quartz Sparks opened a bank for deposits on Sunday evening for the accommodation of the residents of Bristol, and McCarter also opened one for the same charitable purpose. Dams GooDS.-An elegant assortment . , , , 6 . , , of summer dress roods have mat been re - ceived at I. Hyman's. - . Bl'LLIOWILT.E AND PAXAC V DOTS George Willianu iu the absence of Mr. Short is in charge of the furnace. There is at present awaiting shipment at the furnace 4,000 bars of bullion. The weather at Bullionville and Pa- naca during the greater portion of the week has been sunshiny and pleasant. Messrs. Findlay and Wadswortb, of Panaca, hare contracted with the smelt ing company to haul their iron ores from Stampede Gap to Bullionville, for $5.25 per ton. Mr. W. Short departed for Milford, Utah, on Sunday, for the purpose of escorting his wife to Bullionville, at which place they will reside the coming Summer. Tho fruit treea in Panaca are budding forth in all the freshness and beauty of Spring time; and the industrious resi dents are busily engaged planting and otherwise beautifying their little homes. Messrs. Bigelow and Hampton, who have been sojourning in Bullionville dur ing the past week attending to tho busi ness of the company of which both are prominent members, departed for Frisco on Saturdav. ' Mr. John Atchison and wife returned to Panaca on Tuesday after an extended trip through Arizona, in which place he lias some promising land. The old gen tleman speaks very highly of that Terri tory, and predicts for it a brilliant future. In writing these items we have unin tentionally given ottense to the young ladies of Panaca. Now, we would not intentionally hurt the feelings of these young ladies for anything in the world, therefore most humbly beg their pardon, and sincerely hope they will forgive us. A couple of young men had an un pleasant joke played on them Sunday evening m ranaca. They procured a team wherewith to give their girls an airing, and left it standing in a conspicu ous place a shining mark for the festive hoodlum while they went after the girls. On returning their disappointment was great on discovering no team. We had a peep at the books of the smelting company not long since, and pronounce them to be the best kept set of books that we ever saw in the course of a good many years experience in that line in San Francisco and elsewhere. The books are not only kept systematically, but tho penmanship is or a high order, Secretary Frank Godbe can be proud of Ins books, One of our young curly-headed youths after spending a couple of hours on the make up ot his toilet a tew evenings since, procured a nice team and went at a 2:40 gait down Meadow Valley Wash after a girl that he is a little soft on. When he arrived at her place of residence he informed her that there was to be a dance that evening in Panaca and that it would give him great pleasure to escort her thereto. I his was a story, and as such was known to the young lady's chaprone, who by the way is an aged feminine ot rather nstic procliv ities, and the way she went for that young man fully sustained her reputation as a mauler. The lookers on say that it was as good as a dollar circus, and that you could play checkers on the young man s coat-tail in his euorts to get away Irom that ranch. There was a dance given at Social Hall, Panaca, Monday evening, by the young men of Bullionville. It was a very pleasant and enjoyable affair in every respect; in fact one of the best that we ever attended in that place of amusement. Among the Iadie3 present we noticed Miss Tannie Atchison, Misses Mary and Jennette Findlay, Miss Annie Davis, Miss Ella Calloway, Miss Janie Nyswonger, Miss Annie Geary, Mrs. Nyswonger, Mrs. Dawson, Mrs. Johnson, and several other ladies with whom we were not acquainted. Among the notice able events of the evening's amusement was tho transfer of affections. that took place all around, causing no little amount of jealousy, which was plainly perceptible to the initiated observer. The antics of a partially intoxicated person caused con siderable fun when he inquired of a young masher who was tenderly nursing a baby while its mother was dancing if the infant was of Utah production and if he was the daddy. An Immense Stock. One of the larg est stock of dry goods and clothing ever brought to Pioche has been received by J. Myers & Bro. during the week. Their assortment of summer hats far surpasses anything of the kind ever brought to T ' 1 .1 il. A riocne, ana me suits oi ciuiiiuig are iaio too. The ladies department has been stocked with a select assortment of fine dress good, ribbons, laces, and all such articles as lauies require. Not True. The jealous wretch of the Frisco (Utah) Times is endeavoring to create a wrong impression in the minds of the voung ladies in that camp in re gard to us. The San Jose lady treated us to the g. b. months ago. Why cause us such sad retrospection? We will take a trip to Frisco as soon as the walking becomes good and make a satisfactory ex planation to the young ladies of that camp. When a number of the Bristol million aires, Royal City people and the honest ranchers happen to come to Pioche dur ing the same week, the old town looks a little lively.

To the Officers and Members of Pioche Lodce No. 23, I. O. O. F.: Whereas it has pleased the Divine Providence to remove from our midst Brother William Taylor, a member of this Lodge; therefore, be it Resolved, That we extend to his re lations and friends our heartfelt sympa thy in this, their hour of deep distress, and remind them that it is his gain, as it was a decree of a merciful God who doetb all things well. Resolved, That we take to ourselves the lesson that it impartcth and strive to be prepared to to meet death, not as a grim tyrant, but welcome him as a kind messenger sent to translate us from this imperfect world to that all perfect, glori ous and Celestial Lodge above, to which our Brother has preceded us. Resolved, that these resolutions be spread upon the records of this Lodge, and the same, uuder seal of the Lodge, be forwarded by the secretary to the re lations of our deceased Brother, and that tho same bo published in the Pioche Record. Fraternally submitted, R. J. Gordon, Jas. Nesritt, H. W. Tcrner. Pioche, April 24, 1882. A Little Excitement. The most ex citement that has been in Pioche for some time occurred on Monday evening. Joe Delmoi's little spring wagon had been loaded with empty barrels standing on ends, and on top of them were piled sev eral bundles of blankets, and on top of the blankets was a couple ot men, and on the seat was two more men. When the team was proceeding down Main the horses became frightened and started on a full run, and in turning the corner at the lower end of the street, the wagon was upset, and men, bundles and barrels were all dumped out and got considerably mixed up, but fortunately the men were all well hllcd with that which cheers, so none of them were hurt. Mr. Gear, with a eight-horae team loaded with gram, was coming up the lull to the cor ral, and his leaders seeing the runaways advancing, wheeled, and frightened the other horses. The tongue of Gear's wagon was twisted off and all of his homes broke loose and went scattering through the sagebrush. A young stallion and another horse were considerably cut up and injured. On a Tr.ir. Assessor Hoffman, ac companicd by Postmaster Meyers, started on his annual tour of assessing the county on Monday. About a year ago, our Post master was sunenng with the rheuma tism and he took a trip to Salt Lake. While descending Harmony Mountain, on his way to that city, he was jolted out of the buckboard and went rolling down into a deep canyon, but on gathering him self up discovered that the rheumatism 1. 1 1 I l 1 -1 L 1 1 was so delighted that he did not sue the stage company for damages. Having been hobbling around on crutches for several weeks, and being aware of the Assessor's well earned reputation as a driver, ac companied him for the purpose of having the rheumatism knocked out of him again The biggest thing we have ever seen in the shape of towels have just been re- ceived at J.

Nesbitt & Bro. received dur ing the week twenty tons of first-class family tlour troin Utah; also a large sup. ply ot butter Irom Manti and Sanpete valleys. Anti-Chinese Bill Passed. The Anti-Chinese Bill passed tho Senate Fri day afternoon, the vote standinc 32 to 15, All amendments proposed were rejected. Our venerable County Dads will meet at 1 o'clock on Monday next, and all bills against the county should be pre sented to the county Ulerk to-day. A Tombstone paper says A. H. Eman uel and associates have been granted the franchise to construct gas-works in that city, or electric lights, or both. The man who had his leg broken down at Coburn's ranch a week ago is named Hank Dickson. A horse he was riding stumbled and leu on his leg. The builders of the Denver At Rio Grande Railroad expect to have the road built down to the vicinity of Pioche in about one year. Seeds. G. R. Alexander, druggist, has nut received a large supply ot vari ous kinds of flower and vegetable seeds, Geo. W. Grayson, we learn from the San Francisco Daily Report, is slowly re covering from his injuries. Frank White ot Bnstor was caused a a little trouble during the week, but now everything is lovely, Schools Closed. Tho public schools in Pioche were closed yesterday after noon tor the term Mr. Geo. Speaker continues unwell and is still confined to the house. The stages are now arriving The roads north must be good. on tune. ELASTIC HERR HA AO. (New York San J The "India Rubber man, ' who has been a source of astonishment to medical men in Germany and England, arrived hero on Tuesday, and was yesterday afternoon the subject of an examination by physicians and surgepns at the Ash land House, where he is stopping. Mr. G. A. Farini, to whose care the "Gum-ml-Mensch" was consigned, acted as his introducer and interpreter, for Herr Hcinrich Haag, the curiosity iu question, who is a native of Nuremberg, is a simple minded upholsterer, innocent in any other language than German. Ilerr Haag is a lightly built German with reddish-brown hair, sandy mustache and whiskers, and blue eyes, and weighs only 130 pounds. The most critical ob server, seeing him in a state of repose, would fail to find anything queer about him. But all the medical men gasped when, seizing tho skin of his throat, he hauled it up so far as to completely mask bis faco up to the eyebrows. Then he drew down the skin over each eye so as to lap over the ckeck, pulled the skin at the point of his nose down to his chin, clutched the skin of his breast, and hauled it out a good seven inches from his body, reached over his shoulders and dragged up flaps of skin that looked from tho front as if he was pulling an India rubber blanket over his back, and sieZ' ing the skin of his knee, drew it out so far that he twisted it up in a knot as one might a wot towel. Whenever the skin was let go it glided back smoothly into place without a wrinkle, and looked like anybody else's skin. Tho doctors crowded around the India- rubber-skinned man, tugging his cuticle all directions, held his lights behind the board, loose flaps of it, and slightly scorched in their eagerness to see the cir culation of the blood in the delicate blood vessels of the skin. Mr. Haag Bhowed a large scar on his arm, where i'rof. Lcube, ot fcrtangen, cut out a piece of skin to get at the bot tom facts about it. The scar has not grown fast to the flesh underneath, but pulls six inches away, as if it was merely a patched or darned spot in a loose gar ment. Prof. Leube found that there was no sub-cutaucous fat, that thero was a strange lack of tissue between the skin and the flesh, and that the porous pro- cesses fixing the skin to the deep fascia are loose and long. ihe doctors agree that bis is a sur- J1' 8,1 caso ot dcatoly"3. sllPPery skin." Guaymas (Mex.), April 18. Samuel Calhound, lately employed as a carpen ter, killed a Mexican at this place a tew davs ago. and is now in 1 ail.
