Mo.l Very often it is the case iu society that we meet people whom we do not snfficient ly appreciate. These are of the ordiuary type of cbarcter not possessing bold and striking traits. We admire and uphold genius, which is usually eccentric, unsta ble, perhaps unpracticable, but the well balanced well meauing, substantial quali ties which achieve real success we pay very little attention. The characteristics which a hurried world may read, and which are the most demonstrative, command our admiration, while the sterling worth and true inward nobility which reveals itself only upon close acquaintance, is neglected. Many an humble violet blooming by the wayside can impart more fragrance than the most gorgeus rose or vividly colored tulip. So to, while we may admire genius, we may love where it is not. ED ALIA.

This fine company has been invited to visit Marshall as well as Nevada, which shows that they are appreciated abroad as well as at home. In selecting items for the information as well as the amusement of society at large it is, to say the least, injudicious to pry into family affairs and (hen parade the kuowledge before the public. There is al ways a line to be drawn and a limit to good t8ste, and the transgressor in these matters must not complain if condemned. The aim of the manager of tliie department has been to make it not only a source of information, but a channel whereby the reader would find a companionship and pleasure in the bright and sparkling record of social events, and not a chronicle of those little personal affirs which belong to the privacy of home life alone. Those who have heretofore aided in this matter in the paVt have been actuated by a kindly spirit, and it is to be hoped they will not find cause through any one's misdeeds to change the plan of the future.

Ticket No. 8.5G4 drew the $15 000 priz? in the last monthly drawing of the Louis iana State Lottery and the Allentown pa pers say the ticket is held by J. Allen Schaeffer, a bookseller and a well-known business man on Seventh streef, that city who invested a dollar in the scheme, think- msr never to heir Ironi it again. Mr. received his first information Schaeffer hrougli the newspapers, which published the numbers winning prizes on "Wednesday. The Item says: uThis is probably the best investment he ever made. We have heard of no one yet who begrudges him the bonanza which he has suddenly acquir ed, only most people regret that they are not privileged to enjoy a like fortune. Mr. Schaeffer has persevered and struggled in his business, frequently against adverse cir cumstances, but he kept pushing along and succeeded in building up a prosperons trade, which, with a little more capital,wil) be placed on a very substantial basis " It is probable that the good luck of the Allentown man will have the effect ol stirring up the interest in the Louisiana State Lottery already felt in this viciuty. We frequently hear of small gains, rnd these hae kept alive the desire on the part cf many to invest. Such a prize as that drawn by Mr. Schaeffer will give a new impetus to business. Whatever may be the objectionable principles of a lottery, what ever a mas wins on-a Louisiana State Lottery ticket he is sure to get in full as the cash on a good check on a good bank. Easton (Pa.) Free Press, March 16. Schaeffer, the book man, who made the big hit in the Louisiana State Lottery the other day. got his money yesterday per Central Express company. It wrsn't much of a package, the amount, consisting of three five thousand dollar bills. Mr. Schaeffer will continue in business, and he will not allow his good fortune to spoil him one bit. On the contrary, he avows his intention never to purchase another lottery ticket and to put all his energies and all his fortune into the business which, thus far, he has made a great success out of a small beginning through hard work.

A Lengthy and Interesting Let ter From the 1 'Bazoo's" Special Correspondent, In Which All of the Gossip and News in the VineiClad City la Presented. Boonville, Mo., March 31, 1S83. Boonville is just now in the agonies of a city election lou cannot step across a street without hearing the anxious inquiry : "Who are you going to vote for, for this, that and the other offices?" Neither Re publicans nor Democrats have held a city convention, and so the candidates are mix td up in a fne tis:ht. For mayor, John L. O'Bryan, the present incumbent, will have a walk-over. The radicals may put up John C. Gross, presi dent of the council, against him, but that gentleman sees the handwriting on the wall and will probably decline to be sacri ficed, unless he is bulldozed by the bosses. James H. Johnston was approached by the 4,rads" aud asked to run against O'Bryan, but he most emphatically declined. Ex Mayor J. H. Gruelich was also asked to become a candidate, but he refused. The republicans have a most intense hatred for O'Bryan, f r his action in the municipal contest last spring. For register, Dr. F. Swap and David W. L&yton are candidates. Dr. Swap is the present register, and will make a hard tight to be re-elected. Swap is a most in tense partisan, and will hold the full republican strength, payton is a yourg democrat, and the young democra cy are out in force for him. It will be a close contest. For treasurer, Louis H. Stahl and Wm. Mittitrbach are in the field. Mr. Stah is a democrat, and Mittleback a republican. There is no doubt of Stahl's election. Mit ilebach b-ing only half-way a candidate. For street commissioner, Wm. H.Harri son, democrat, Ciaus Stameijohn, radical and A. P. McKee, mixed, are the candi dates. Harrison has hi Id the office for the past year and made a first-class officer. He will come under the wires three full lengths ahead of his competitors. For city attorney, V G. Pendleton and Geo. W. Acton, both democrats, are candi dates. Thos. B. Wright may pass as the temperance candidate, but it is doubtful. Peudleton has been carefully groomed, has a good gait and will prove the winning horse. Will J. Homan and Ed Short, both dem ocrats, want to be assessor, with the chances in favor of Homan. For city marshal, J. B. Holland, R. F. O'Brien and H. L. Wilson, all democrats, are lh the field. The fight is between Holland and O'Brien, wiih the chances about even. In the tin?t ward James Mitchell, democrat, will probably be selected councilman ; in the second the race will be close between Mr. Williams democrat, and ( C. Bell, radical, with Williams in the lead. In the Third ward, Austin Speed, democrat, will be chosen. Iu the Fourth ward, the fight will probably be a very close one. In the Fifth ward, J. H. Johnson, democrat, will be selected. In the Sixth ward, August Dengolesky, republican, will be elected and at large. W Speed Stephens, will carry off the prize, provided Speed will run. To a man "up a tree" the above is about the way the fight stands at present. Much, however, depends on the way the colored brother casts his vote. The war between the Germans and the negroes will lead most of the latter to vote with the Democrats. Election occurs next Tuesday, and from now till then the city will be redolent of whiskey, and the candi dates will be the politest imaginable. PICK-UPS. W. W. Trigg has returned from the east.
