Appropos of the
Sunday Rest Law The Lid a.t Bugville. (By James Barton Adams in Good win's Weekly). We had seen the storm a-brewin', an' we felt that it would break In a mauner that was goiu' fur to give our hearts an ache, But the co uncil was determined, an' the wimmen folks eu masse Was around'em an' a-howlin' fur the ordinance to pass. 'Twas a measure we had battled in a most heroic way Fur a closin' up the gin mills on the holy Sabbath day, An' its passage seemed to knock us helter-skelter off our base As we stood around an' stared the situ ation in the face! How the female hens did cackle when they seed they'd gaiued their p'iut An' had knocked the ripened noses of us fellers out of j'iut. An' they said the day was dawnin' the moral sun'd rise O'er the rescued camp o' Bugville in a way t'd scorch our eyes! Fur the gentle power o' wimmen that was hallowed from above Was behind the ear o' Progress an' was givin' it a shove, Au' they'd keep the wheels a rollin' till they pulied it from the mire An' the camp was fumigated—purified as if with fir.-. an' We had alius heltour lawyer an uneces sary scamp, To be tolerated only at the pleasure o' the camp, But iu cornin' to our rescue iu that sore dilemma we Sung his praises as an angel in a mighty joyous key. He explained that a prescription from a doctor for our booze Was a legal sort o' paper that no drug gist dare refuse, An' the medico had told him that his Suuüay hours was plum From the breakin' o' the daylight till his patieuts ceased to come. Talk about yer epidemics! Every feller iu the camp Rdu the gamut o' diseases from con sumptiou dow n to cramp, An' the doctor w rit prescriptions, au' the druggist done the rest, An' a w ilder jag was never placed on record in the west. Now us fellers is rejoicin' an' the wiui men are iu tet,rs An' are beggiu' o' the council fur to alienate their fears By repealin' o' the measure, far the drug store booze they And Carries more red lire o' slieol than the regular 01 ' kind. « The Local Editor of Toda-y. The country editor of toduv is com ing into his ow n. He asks fewer favois aud brings more into the store of com mon good. He lines uot as* eulogies, nor does he reseut fair criticisms. He is content to be judged by what he is and what he has accomplished. As the leader of the hosts must hold his place by the conseut of his followers, so must the town's spokesman prove his worih. Closest to the people, nearest to their home life, its hopes end its aspiratious, the country editor is at the foundation of journalism. Here and there is a weak and inefficient example, but in the maiu he measures up to as high a staudarc. as does auy class of business men in the nation, and it is a busiuess man that he prefers to be classed. The cuuntry editor of today assumes j no particular virtue because his capital is invested iu printing presses, paper and a few thousand pieces of metal called type. He does realize that be cause uf his vocation he is enabled to do much tor good government, for progress aud for the betterment of bis Commun- j ity. Unselfishly aud freely be does 1 this. He starts movements that bring scoundrels to terms, that place flowers where weeds grew before, that banish sorrow and add to the world's 6tore of joy Ttie country editor is doing verv well, aud the trend of his business affairs is in the direction of better financial re turns aud wider influence. fie is a greater power now than ever before in his history, aud he will become more influential as the years go by. He will not be controlled by a syndicate or mo deled after a machine made pattern, but will exert his individuality where ever he may be. It was Edmund Hammond Hargraves who discovered gold in Australia in 1851—3 years after Maushall made 1,is celebrated find in California. Har graves had tieeu inspired by the Cali fornia discovery, and after studying tiie go ! d deposits and their formation, the soil and other conditions that might in fluence their development, he returned to New South Wales where he had learned of a district that w as a counter part to the regiou iu California. With out hesitation, in 1851, he went to a spot on the banks of a small stream known as Lewes Pond creek, a tribu tary of bummer Hill creek, itself a tributary of the Macquarie river, aud found auriferous dirt. Ou February 12, 1851, he reeoguized the colors in his pan, and soou after determining the value of the ground, lie proposed to sell Lie secret to the government for £500 ($2,500), but later concluded to trusr to the liberality of the government officials to whom he had made his find known. Immediately emigration to the diggings began, Hargraves doing no work ex cepting to point out to others the best spots of ground which iu Lis opinion contained the most gold. He also in structed the pioneers tu the process of washing and cleaning gravel. Subse queutly, Hargraves was made commis sioner of crown lauds, aud received a reward of £10,000 (850,000).—Mining World. n Miners' Exchange jj SALOON t * i! 1 It HOO D S3L JVCLSOJV Trcps, S'ilder City, Idaho. u —Best of— ».
