M. railroad company shut down on

trains under any circumstances.
THE Denver & Rio Grande has just
been mortgaged for $50,000,000 to
the Union Trust company of New
York : What it wants with so much
money , unless it is to extend its sys
tem to San Francisco , is what will
puzzle the public. The probability
is that in ease of such an extension
it will be heavily backed by the Bur
lington.

Miss HELEN' H. GARDNER , the lat
est disciple and protege of that prince
of atheists Robert Ingersoll lec
tured Sunday , the 6th inst. , in Chick-
eringHall , New York. After styling
the Christian religion as wicked , un
just , unreasonable , cowardly , and in
famous , she sallied forth in this most
infamous tirade against the hope of
the world :
"A religion which says that wo
should be miserable in this world that
we may be happy hereafter has a false
. A religion that says that
elieving .vice is holier than unbeliev
ing virtue is wrong. I do not be
lieve in a religion which sends Em
erson and Channing to h 1 because
Eve ate the forbidden fruit or sends
Chastine Cox to heaven because a
mob murdered Jesus Christ. Most of
the church-goers are women , which
will make heaven a queer kindergar
ten , in whose classes will be few male
voices , and those chiefly tenor. Wher
ever woman is mentioned in the Bible
it is an insult to her purity. A woman
should spurn the Bible and endeavor
to destroy its influence ; and I mean
to do all I can in such a direction.
Jehovah stands condemned before the
bar of every noble soul. God might
have hinted to Solomon in one of their
numerous conversations that he had a
few more wives than necessary. The
Bible might be kept in one's library
as a curious old literary work , but it-
should be kept on the top shelf.
Don't let the children get-at it. I
want to do what I can , " she said , "to
show women that their mercury of
self-respect must fall several degrees
when they enter the church doors. "
Just exactly the relationship Helen
bears to Charles Guiteau is not stated ,
but they must be very intimately con
nected their is a striking resem
blance in their literary prcductions.
A MAX had met a girl in a lonely
place and forcibly kissed her. She
was terribly indignant , and had him
arrested. She * gave an account on the
witness stand of how he ga/ed at her
intently , and then , suddenly throwing
his arras around her , imprinted a kiss
upon her lips. The prisoner made no
defense , and the jury was -expected
to promptly convict him of assault.
They returned to the court room.
"The ju-ju jury w-w would like to
ask the young lady two questions , "
the' foreman said. The judge .con
sented , and she went on the stand.
' D-d-did the that
- - you wear J-j-jersey
you've got on now ? " "Yes , sin , ' ' was
the demure . "And
reply. w-w-was
your hair b-b-banged like that ? "
"Yes sir. " "Then honor
, , your , we
acquit the p-p-prisoner on the ground
cf emo-mo-motioual insanity. . ' '

THE Railroad Gazette shows that
7,200 miles of road were finished last
year , as against 11.600 in 1882 , 9,800
.in 1881 , ; and 7,200 in 1880. The
country has now over 120,000 miles
of railroad in-operation.
DK. MARY WALICER , attired in a
"full" suit , fur bound overcoat , and a
plug hat , paid her respects to the
president New Year's day. Evident
ly. Dr..Mary did not swear off. '
THE Judije suggests .that dufles
O O j
should .wear low necked garments as
well as-other folks. Not.a bad idea.
Their brains are already cut- law in
the neck.
A MONTANA girl died from the ef
fects of an embrace. ' A svreetsmile
j > layed. about her lips even .in death.
BY OUR ASSISTANT EDITOR.
THE marriageable young ladies of
Hastings have-mapped out a plan to
bust the bachelors' jassociation before
the leap year wanes.
DENVER seems to be the Baden-
Baden of the West in gambling ; the
Ninevah in regard to the social evil ;
a Mecca for the invalids , and paradise
for political adventurers. Thus it is a i ;
good place for sensational journalists.
BACHELOR bald-headed bourbon
Dick of the Hastings Democrat , in
the travail of his soul , gives utterance
to the following piety : "In the name
of God , what has become of the Christ-
like people ? " And Hamlets advice
has been suggested ; "Get thee to a
nunnery. "
"O , AMY , " .said the lu'gh school
girl's friend last night , "you ought to
! have seen me catch on to Gus's arm
I yesterday. " "My dear,1' replied the
high school girl , "after your studies
of anatomy have further progressed
you will not say 'catch on to. his arm , '
but 'I grasped Iris Jiumerus with my
' phalanges. ' " OU City Derrick.
AND now doth the frisky maiden
Improve each shining minute , making
the most of leap year , hoping there's
millions in it. The society young
man can now rest from his arduous
duties , as it is to him and not the la
dies court must be paid. But there
will l > e just asraauy theatre And ball
tickets paid for : by the young men as
there -ever was. Tin's girl .may see
him Lome according to the etiquette i
of the season , but ten to-one she will
have to ask him to take her homes
aftejward. Leap year is all right in
theory , but It is poor in practice after
all. Peck's Sun.
So she was going to be married 1
to ; be mistress of a house ; settle in
London ; be able to go out into > the
streets all alone , to shop or visit ; have
a gentleman all her own , whom she
jeould put her finger on any moment ,
and make him take her about , even
to the opera and the theatre ; to give
dinner parties her owuself , and even
a little ball once in a w3iile to 1 > uy
whatever dresses .she .thought jirojier ,
instead of being crippled by an allow
ance ; have the legal right of speak
ing first in society , instead of sitting
imunchance and mock modest ; to be
mistress instead of miss a contempt
ible title ; cto .be a woman instead of a
girl ; ; and allfihis rational liberty , do-
jnestic power-and social dignity were
TO be obtained by merely wedding a
dear fellow who loved her and was so
nice- ; and the bright career to be
ushered in Avith several delights , each
of them dear to a girl's very soul ; pres
ents from all her . .friendsas . ; many
beautiful new dresses as of cne was
changing her body or her hemisphere
instead of her name ; eclat- ; going to
church , -.which is a good girl's theater
of display and temple of vanity , and
there tasting delightful publicity and
whispered admiration in a heavenly
long veil which she could not wear
even once if she remained single.
This bright and variegated picture of
3ioly wedlock , as revealed to young
Jadies by feminine ttradition , though
jiot enumerated.in the Book of Com-
monPrayerso entranced her that time
flew by unheeded. Charles Eeade.
