Lincoln County Leader.
Saturday. Ftbroar j 23, 1S8I. LOCAL ROUNDUPS Lork eometlmmimalfie name, but M iUUH H II. M U l liuK nUU tOlODlD. Ill nive nmn iii oiiiliir fume, Wbu put In tills pttcullur column. Jim Black and Ed. Frdricks are homo again from Lincoln. The genial Dan McKinley was heard to cackle in town this week. Capt. Brazel's accomplished daughter is visiting the camp aud Patty family. Petek Mackel will go east in a few days after the rest of his nn meroua familv. We are slipping through the winter months with little or no winter weather. Miss Iíkrtie Kkklky has been qoite ill for several days, but is re ported better now. John McMckchev, and his pard, Tom Wallace, were in camp this week. Music and tun always ac con;pany8 them. "We sheep merchants get round ed up sometimes," said Logwood to Deputy Sheriff Brent while en route to the Kansas Penitential y. Littell is coiihtuiitly growing in faror. So is the ardent he dis penses. To see others smack tlieii lips after partaking of it,, almost makes us wish we drank. One of the most talented writers in the Territory, is niw our regu lar Santu Fo correspondent, whose first letter appears this week. Dur i )g the Legislative session he will provide our readers with weekly letters. There has not been a weddirg here for a fortnight, but we hear it hinted around that there are sev eral prospective eases nearly ripe for siicn occasions, and the boy are only waiting for their girls to "pop," as it were, and set the time. Weed ifc Co. say that they never had such a complete stock of goods as they now have. They confi ciently assert that they can fill am orderpresented them and at figures which Mill duplicate R. II. town prices. This is a bold proposition but tiiey say they mean it. Our thanks are due the people of Nogal for their unremitting at tention to us during our visit then this week. The doings of that camp wi 1 hereafter be duly and faithfully recorded in the Lkadei; each week by a trustworthy cor pondent. Lookout for fun to-night. (Fri day,) at the Hall. G. T. Cullen will appear on the stage in African character, supported by other ar tists, after which, everybody will dance. All gentlemen are request ed to bring their ladies or vice rermi The be.-t timo of the season is anticipated. The people nt Mogul and Bonito implore us to do their kicking thU week. They say that their eastern mail is retarded here twmty four hours instead of being forwanhd on the day of arnval, which not infrequently causes them vexation and hiss. The attention of P. M Bellcmy i culled to thisgrievance. A r Roar-kctor has discovered a bed of oysters, on the apex of a hill just east b town The finder says there is any quantity of then so that they may bo scooped up by the ton, and admits they are ra ther stale, but thinks they might be utilized to great advantage and profit to supply church festivals. A. J. Wilson, South Fork, onr of our County Commissioners, shows his appreciation ofthe Lead or, and at tho same timo his in.--ture sense and judgment, by : emit ting therefor $5.00. ilo will pleaeo consider this notice as his receipt. 'j To us it is cheaper than postals stumps Capt. S. J. Si.anr has recently purchased a ranch on the KuMoso, which he proposes to stock with several hundred head ot cattlo at once. There are mining prospects in the Bonito district yet undevelop ed and scarcely noticed, which, if found upon the plains of Arfzona, or the highest peaks of Colorado, would create a veritable boom. Prospects that would 6ell for thou sand.! of dollars in some localities, can be bought here for the price of a fourth-class burro, and get the next year's assessment work thrown in. It will not always be thus, boys; hold on to your claims. The time is not far distant when good claims will be in demand, and even poor ones will sell for money. However, do not remain idle and wait for this time to come, but keep pegging away and deve'op your claims as much as possible. It is development after all that brines a mining camp into notice, and shows what you have got. The recent arrival cf Mrs. E. B. Chase, wiil not on'y contribute great pleasure to our worthy friend, the Governor, but she will 1.0 doubt become a valuable acquisi tion to the good society of White Oaks. Mr. Chase has, by his straight forward, manly course, during his residence here, acquired a large circle of friends, who will be pleased to honor r.nd welcome the wife of so good a m:.n. Since pecciling the above, we have been the recipient from the hands of Mrs. Chase of a custard pie, which beats all the "pi" the Leader ever tasted. The large attendance at the meeting of the patrons ofthe pub lic school on last Saturday evening, manifested the interest our people have in the cause of education. The meeting was organized by calling Geo. L. Ulrick, our worthy com missioner, to the chair, who, in a few brief remarks, stated that the object ofthe meeting w.is to devise ways and means for the employ ment of an assistant teacher in our public school, that $700, the ain't ofthe public school funds allowed by the board for White Oaks, was not more than sufficient to pay the principal and incidental expenses during the term, and there being nearly one hundred scholars in at tendance, it became absolutely nec essary to employ an assistant. Ev erybody seemed to understand the situation, and all were willing to contribute liberally tor that pur pose. On motion of Emmet Blood, Messrs Win. Watson, J. A. Ilelp hingstnie and J. E. Sligh, were ap pointed as a committee to obtain subscriptions, and on Tuesday a sufficient sum had been subscribed to authorize the employment of an assistant, and on Wednesday morning Joe Collier took his posi tion as assistant teacher. The generous liberality of the citizens n responding so promptly to the necessaries of the hour, speaks well for the town and will no doubt help us to procure a larger share ot the public funds next year. The town was thrown in. o a flut ter of excitement this week over tho rumor that Ex-Senator Dorsey had arrived. Our reporter pro ceeded to investigate the truth of the report, and found that it was our genial old friend, Col. Nat Moore, slicked up and triuged out in abran new suit of clothes, whom some of our fellow-townsmen did not recognize, and mistook him for the doughty Senator. Col. Nat is governor of the state of Nogal, and reports that community as being in a flourishing condition. A religious exchange says, when a man who has spent all his life time in money getting and wor shiping, die, immediately there begins a scramble by the worms tor Lis body ; by tho relatives for his property ; and by the devil for his soul. The Boston Globe says that "Wendell Phillips did not like ti tl s. He preferred to be called 'Wendell Pi iliips,' and nothing else." H wan right. To the Tarents tf White Oaks- Complaint is made that certain boys are so wilfully destructive as to make a business of mutilating property breaking windows, and in vari j us ways dispoiling build ings. To such an extent has this matter been carried tha. Mr. Cul ver, our worthy teacher, was re quested to reprimand some of his pupils. Tho boys who have been guilty of these acts arc known, and unless they desist, they will be le gally prosecuted. We are positive parents will not allow such wrong doing, and this is to call their at tention to the matter, so they will, as far as possible, prevent it in the future. In the fall it was currently re ported and generally believed that Col. M. Cronin would take unto himself a "help r.ieet," but he did hot, and now that leap year has set in, it is to be presumed that he has declined, and continues to de cline through pure unadulterated cussed contrariness. Mrs. Martin of Omaha didn't scream when she unlocked her room and saw a burglar. On the contrary, she marched him to tho police station. The Omaha Lee sketches tho scene : "A big, strapping fellow, fully six feet high, with broad shoulders and heavy frame, came inarching up tho street with his head hanging, and looking decidedly peevish. Right behind him walked a little woman, of average height and slim built, but in her eye was a deter mined look, and what loked more determined was a five-shooter re volver, which she carried in her riilht hand, with the muzzle in a direct line with the big fellow's head. Tho pistol was cocked and the prisoner knew from the look in h r eye that a misstep meant lead en pills for him. After the lady had turned her man over to an officer she put away the pistol." President Arthur is said to be enjoying himself in the White Mouse, and is going in for all the fun tho possibilities afford. He fished, explored, danced and dined, and had a good time generally. Ex-Presideut Hayes reads ot these things with a sad expression of countenance, which may attribute to regret that he "fooled away" his time while in the Executive Man sion, and only drank behind the door. The only good thing Ruther ford ever enjoyed was good luck. All the larger animals live five times as long as the time expended by them in. reaching maturity. Thus the camel grows eight years and lives forty, the horse grows five and lives twenty-five, the ox four and lives from fifteen to twen ty, the dog two and lives from ten to twelve, the man twenty years and should liye to a hundred or more. lURUHGTOn UUIIiCY It Positively tho Shortest Lino from CITY, ATCLISO'.T k ST.
