OLD TRIM'S LETTER.
Donoou, April 7th,'l883.
Good Friday, which a.rtni the Friday
before Eitater Suuday. It tins rained near
Jy all day, and according to tho very ancient
Dutch Owen, we will have a bountiful vear,
for it hath been guid, time out of mind,
that a ramy Good Friday ia ominous of
goods crops sod a bountitul season for all
Tim very fiiii, beautiful two year old
heifer, spoken of in last week's Ucm.ltix,
happens to be three years old nnd was
raised by our energetic townsman and par
excellent miller, Frauk Neihauer. Wo
saw said beautiful cream colored heifer
weighed last week on Eddlowan's bchIch,
and she tipped tho beam ut 1220 pounds,
aud thoso who gut a cut of her for a din
ner on Easter day, will get beef that with
in itself is a "rythmic poem and quite too
excessively beyond and quite, too, too," to
be eaten on any other day. Cairo never
gets disappointed in anything that hails
from Neibauer. His family Hour should
be in every kitchen iu Cairo, for it is quite
as "utter "as said cream colored heifer.
J. C. Burns, of Cairo, whs in Doogola
several days lust week, looking titter busi
ne-ia and exchanging congratulations with
II. Meyers, Judge Bross and Mr. Hoar,
all of Cairo, were in Dougola recently; all
looking the very picture of yood health,
and lull hope for Cairo's future. It is
quite a treat to shake hauds with Judge
BrohS. A person with weak muscles will
not soon forget it.
The great day of the year for Dong ila
has been here, aud is gone. We refer to
the municipal election. The old board of
trustees were re-elected. "Pie'cater" und
J. T. Dale were the candidates for the
ollice of police magistrate. "Pie-cater"
was elected. The smoke of the battle in
the wonderful contest has cleared, and wu
are able to report do lives lost, not even a
lisli cuff. 'Squire "Pie-cater" has filleH
his bond, bewn commissioned aud is now
waiting for a drunken row so that he may
make some "coffee money." But as the
Dungola, s of a b on wheel", fr zu out
and left here, his prospects for "coffee
money" are not so good. However, as the
spring fights have not opened up as yet, and
we have quite a crowd who love to guzzle
whinky and shoulder bruise, the prospects
for "Pie-eater" to make his coffee money
Henry Planert and family, of Alexander
county, passed through Dongoln on Tues
day, 5tli instant, enmute for New Mexico.
We have long known Mr. Planert and fam
ily, and can say of a truth that Alexander
county has lost a worthy family of intelli
gent citizens. Sir. Planert and his wife
were both very successful teachers and
have followed imparting knowledge to the
youths of Alexander county for the last
sixteen years, and their places in the com
mon schools will not bo easily filled. May
success crown their efforts in tho far away
regions of New Mexico. Old Tium.
"Throw Physic to the D'gw, I'll None
We do not fael like blaming Micbeth for
this expression of disgust. Even nowadays

In dt roving those characters which

have failed to laugh nt that pholograpliio

they have commented; "why, I've seen

what he had seen.

Mrs. Stonn formerly had a servant
whose beaming, happy face was n delight
and a benediction. She married a good
fellow, went West, atul afterafew years,
died. The husband, knowing the'inter
est felt in her by her former mistrexs,
wrote to inform her of his wife's death
nnd of his great loss. Ho spoke of her
pleasant wtys, of how much she- had
been tn him, and said, 'Now that sho
has gone, that everlasting stuilo of hers
will haunt nu till Iglie."
A Much Mjstiflud Young Man.
A mystified youth writes to nsk u to
unravel ami generally decipher a remark
niailo to him tho other night by a voting
lady, with whom ho hail repaired to u
restaurant for Mipnur, after visiting
Wallack's theatre. It seems they were
demolishing some, broiled fror. and tho
conversation being on tho stt ; .et of flirt
ing, the young lady expressed herself n.s
follows; "l Uiink'the way you men 'do
go on' is perfectly oulrageoiis. You llirt
w It Ii every girl you see, mid when you
have broken their hearts what do you
Hire for them? why nothing. You act
exactly as tho men do who catch these
poor httlo frogs, tho hind legs is nil they
euro for." Now, what In heaven's tiatne,
ays thn young inan, did she mean by
tlmtP How ou earth should wo LuowP ,
Nobody could guess says a New Ynrl
correspondent, what is tho newest fash
ionable freak of metropolitan girls. It
is to patronize stiiril ual mediums and fortune-tellers.
There, is diversion nt a
seance, possibly, where the circle sits in
ti dim light, 'Hasping- one another' &
hands, with a skip-ainl-go-ono arrange
ment as ti how the sexes are seated, in
order to .secure, as I heard a medium
tdirnse It, "a polarity of electric force."
lint having fortunes told by weird old
hags, away up-stairs in dirty tenement
houses, is hardly conceivable as an
Amusement. The fact is that a wave of
stipemtilion has risen, mid is now slop
ping on us. Negro women are the fa
vorite witches, nnd about every seeotitl
house in West Twenty-lifth street, the
successor of Thompson street for negro
residence, holds a sorcerer. Never be
fore have so many silk skirts been lifted
over tho moral and physical mud of that
thoroughfare. Mo.-I of tho priestesses
of voudoo art! quite commonplace shuf
flers of greasy cards and peepers into tea
cups, but .several are more pretentious.
One mulatto of great sie and consider
able beauty wears a robe covered with
queer ligu ics, after the manner of con
ventional astrologers and sits in a quaintly-embellished
room in the midst of
stuffed birds, snakes, and alligators. She
is in high repute with .Murray Hill girls,
and sho gives them the nicest possible
information about present lovers nnd
future joys. You pay her n dollar. Then
she puts on a cockle-shaped cap, waves
n wand, closes her eyes, and lies to you
like an export. Slfe has considerable
tact in drawing out facts from her un
witting callers, and is thereby able to
startle them with the very points they
have given her. Of course, a good pro
portion of those who are indulging in
this freakish sort of thing merely do it
because others do, but many arc really
credulous, and it. is astounding how linn
a lodgment superstition has in feminine
heads, right alongside their cultivated
brains. Ridiculous stories tell how some
of tho fortune-tellers are abusing their
opportunities by bringing their innocent
patrons into acquaintance with awfully
naughty men, and so on. Bosh! The
upper-ten girls of New York are just as
knowing as they are innocent, ami they
don't tiike introductions to strange men
An Eel Story With Whisky Bait
"Eels is bitin' very good this winter,"
observed a Newtown man to the cashier,
as he tished around in his vest pocket
for a marriage notice and paid tlie ex
pense of insertion.
"Caleb many?" asked the cashier,
checking the notice.
"I loin' pretty well, pretty well," re
plied tho old man. "I ketched one thn
other day which was considerable eel.
Ye see I went to tin.' crick in the niornin'
and cut a hole in the ice and dropped
the hook. In about a minute I knowed
I had a bite and I went for him. When
I'd got about ten yards of him out I
"(Jot what?" demanded the cashier.
"Ten yards of him. Ye see, I eotildu'li
tell how big he was goin' to he, so I just
pulled his head over my shoulder and

Too Many Cranks With Kovolvcra.
Machean, the fellow who lired fit
Queen Victoria, appears to bo a rather
commonplace type of Knglish vagabond,
lie is said to be "eccentric anil addicted
to drink," and them is a suggestion of
the crank in the sentences quoted from
his nole-book. Indeed, if the "Fourth
Path, a novel by MacLean," there re
ferred to, is his'own work, ho may bo
ect down as a crank unhesitatingly. Tho
cranks all take naturally to the discus
sion of largo problems, religious, social
or political, with occasional excursions
into poetry nnd liction. There is rtgooil
deal of likeness between the American
and the Knglish cranks, hut Knglish gin

doubt whether the man really was in

ever, to put him out of the way of in

"Who nro you?" asked the magistrate
of the diny-fiiced littlo waif who stood
trembling 'in tho dock. "I'm a child of
Forrer," whimpered the urchin. "What
nre you sorry about?" "Nothiu' much,
only dad anil mother get mad, and tight

The lecturer began, "There Is a for

A California bear seems to have been
so much of a gentleman ns to quietly
depart from a house when a lady toll'
him that his room was better than hi.s
company. The Wood River Times tells
the story, as follows:
About ten o'clock in the evening a
lady living in Wood River, California,
was followed home by what she took to
be a large Newfoundland dog. Arriving
home, Sim paused at the door to open it,
but it w as some time before sho succeed
ed. During this delay the animal got
quite close to her, and as ho seemed
harmless, the lady called him in.
Her .surprise may be imagined when,
on striking a light, she saw a lingo bald
faced bear looking at her, showing his
teeth us if grinning at her mistake. More
dead than alive, the lady opened tho
door, and gathering her sk'irU as women
sometimes do, began "shooing" the bear.
Bruin, as if appreciating the gravity
of the situation, hurried out, whereupon
the frightened lady fell int,o a chair, and
did not recover her presence of mind for
at least tifleen minutes, when sho ran to
a neighbor's and told of her adventure
