The New York Sun says that Mr. 1
Cleveland should be made the stan- 1

is desired to eternally smash the '

The Philadelphia North American
thinks the administration might
make a worse, appointment to the
supreme bench than that of Mr.
Garland, but it would have to exert
itself to do so.
Many of our citizens who attend,
od the celebration at Lamar on the
24th, came back well pleased and
speak in glowing terms of the kind
treatment they received, and the en
joyment they experienced. The cel
ebration was a grand success, for
which the people of Lamar deserve
much credit.—Granada Exponent.
The Denver Base Ball Club
means well, but unfortunately, it
doesn’t know how to play ball. It
is a mistake to suppose that the
people of Denver have any bitterness
toward tho members of the nine.
They regard them as nice young
men, and as such they respect them; I
but it makes them sleepy to hear,
anyone say that they cau play base/
ball.—Denver Republican.
A backwoods printer who expect-*
ed a gang of lynchers to come aftej
him about midnight, took himself
the cellar, leaving a pet grizzly bear
in his bed. The lynchers, who did
not bring any light, made a pluckjy
attempt to carry off the printer, bijt
gaye it up after three of them ba$
lost an eye apiece, two had their
thumbs chewed off, and the other\
six lost a deal of skin. That printer
has now a tremendous reputation as
a fighter.—Ex.
1 The mail and telegraph between
| Trinidad and Pueblo, according to
| the Advertiser, are great iustitu
j tious, but it’s nip aud tuck as to
| which is the greater. The celerity
i of the mails sometimes beats the
j telegraph and sometimes the tele
graph beats the mails, but for un
j reliable irregularity and unmitigated
j uncertainty, both of them beat the
devil. The remark as to the mails
| could easily be applied to this town
[ without any exaggeration.—Las
j Vegas Optic.
! A little item comes from Emporia
I to the effect that the board of trade
j of that city ordered 3,500 copies of
! the News. This style of eneourage
j ment is what makes newspapers
grow valuable to the community,
and newspaper men rustle to deserve
their success. It also causes the
boys in other towns to dream of a
bright future when the board of
trade in their respective towns will
awaken to a realization of the fact
; that a hundred dollars spent occas
ionally in this way is the yery best
| way of advertising.

j Upon arriving home ho turned tho

twelve different kinds of liquor,
llis wife thought that her husband
had been led astray, hence her loss

Who is left to mourn for Burke?
Dave was probably his own worst
enemy. Whatever faults he may
have had, let them be buried with
him. He had some good traits.
We always liked to meet Dave
when ho was in a good humor.
When he had too much whisky in
him he liked to assume the role of
a bad man and calledT»himself “the
terror of the Black flange,” and
boasted that ho could fight any man
in any way and at any mark in the
road. This never hurt any one, but
he finally struck the wrong man,
and his own pistol in the hand of
Con. Ryan laid low the “Terror of
the Blaek Range.” Peace to his
ashes.—Kingston Shaft.
/A. party of drunken cowboys held
possession of Granada a few nights
iigo. How long must we submit to
'this carousing and disorder? Men's
I lives are in danger when a drunken
mob is allowed to ride our streets,
shooting off their revolvers in all di
rections without restraint. It has
about reached a point where it must
be stopped, when business houses
are compelled to close their doors,
and honest people are forced off
the streets* Such scenes would be
disgraceful in a frontier town, much
less in a country where the people
pride themselyes on being quiet and
peaceable citizens. If Granada was
' incorporated all this lawlessness
v could be stopped.—Granada Ex-
A slick man is traveling
through this country selling gro
ceries to the farmers. Ho calls
“eighty dollar lots, - ” that is good .to
the amount of -eighty dollars, taking
the farmer’s notes payable one year
from date. It is not so much tho
amount of groceries or the quality,
that attracts the farmer as it is tho
promise for the future which tho
slick talker makes. He is going to
revolutionize the grocery business,
and sell the farmers their goods at
wholesale rates, etc., etc. In fact
ho will promise almost anything in
order to sell a bill of goods and get
a note of eighty dollars. These
notes arc of course sold as- soon as
possible. When the fanner receives
his bill of goods he is disappointed,
both in quality and in quantity. In
fact, he can get better goods for less
money at the various groeery houses
in Wellington. The operations of
this individual have been carried on
on an extensive scale. One man in
forms us that ho has sold eighty
bills in his neighborhood, or over
six thousand dollars worth.—Well
ington Press.
Senator Hoar in his recent speech
before the Young Republican Olub,
of Boston, stated tho creed and
marked out the future course of the
republican party with great brovily
and plainness in saying:
We propose to maintain the policy
which has created our existing sys
tem of manufactures, and mean that
it shall in the south and all oyer the
country foster new manufactures.
We propose, further, to reduce tho
revenue by diminishing or totally
abrogating the tax on tobacco. Wo
propose to expend the accumulated
money in’ the treasury by construct
ing a navy; by providing fit defenses
for our coast cities; by'helping to
, establish and put on their feet sys
tems, subject wholly to local control,
i of common school education for our
i illiterate population without regard
i to race or previous condition; by eu
1 larging and perfecting our postal
j system at home and abroad; by giv
- ing reasonable encouragement to 0?
i the establishment of hues of steam-411
r ships to foreign ports. V
