A Silver Bullet. —A somewhat re
markable occurrence is exciting peo
ple in the vicinity of Hastings, Michi
gan, and inducing something almost
like superstition. A farmer, traveling
through a dense piece of woods, came
suddenly upon a huge buck stretched
out upon the ground and evidently
engaged in closing up bis affairs with
life. There was no wound upon the
animal, and it was apparently dying
merely of old age. The farmer merci
fully put the buck out of misery by a
bullet in the head, and then, doubtless
with buckskin gloves and breeches in
mind, east his t ye over the skin of the
animal. A hard round lump just he
neath the hide attracted his attention
and was cut open, when, to the farm
er's surprise, there was revealed a sil
ver bullet, such as was once used for
carrying secret messages. The bullet
was taken home, when, after much
difficult v, tin* farmer succeeded in un
screwing the thing, revealed a mes
sage written in cipher upon paper of j
the greatest thinness. Naturally, this

Adyertising as a Means of Success.
—Somebody says that successful mer
chants arc those who have advertised
in some way. Advertisement of one's
business is absolutely necessary to
success. When; advertising does no
direct benefit—-if such a thing be pos
sible—it confers indirect advantages
by building up the newspaper press,
which advertises and illustrates the

We regard judicious and sharp adver

A Chinaman Gored to Death, and
Then Impaled. —At the Devil's Elbow,
about 6 miles below Black Hawk, on
the line of the Col »rado Central Rail
way, where the bed of the road is
hewn out of the solid rock, owing to
the extreme narrowness of the valley
of Clear Creek at that point, an inci
dent occurred on Wednesday last,
which takes rank as one of the most
horribly and terrible on record.
A Chinaman, Lin Wau, working in
the gulch mines along the creek, was
pursued by a wild and furious bull,
which had wandered away from the
herd up the creek. For safety the
Celestial took t<> the track, but was
closely followed by the infuriated ani
mal to the Devil's Klhow, where the
bed of the creek is about 20 feet be

"R-ags!" —Just as the rays of the
rising sun gilded the rosy morn, and
the lark brushed the dew from his
brown feathers and trilled a joyous
lay, the voice rose from the walk and
penetrated the ears of every sleepei'
for a block around. It was not a voice
crying "Excelsior!" or a voice raised
in adulation of the beauties of a joyous
morning. It was a plaintive voice,

When the great bell struck the hour
of noon, and the busy streets were de

policeman or two, and an occasional
lad hurrying along with a dinner-pail

along the streets and echoed and rever
berated in the stairways. It was not
the voice of a good man, admonishing
the people to turn from the error of
their ways. It was not the chant of
the auctioneer, giving "third and last
call," nor was it the monotonous, mu
sical slang of the man who sells a set
of gold jewelry for the paltry sum of

When the golden sun dipped behind
the horizon, and the evening shadows
chased each other across his face and
wavered and quivered above Time's
grave, there came riding on the quiet
evening air a long drawn wail. It was
not the cry of a child in pain. It was
not the sad sob of a loving wife as she
lient over the cold and lifeless form of
a kind husband. It rose with the shad
ows, sounding through halls and crept
into chambers. It was that same cry,
"R-ags !"—Detroit Fret' Press.
