Sioux City last winter had an Old Maids'

they would lead a single life, and eschew
the naugaty men forever. But, it is said
there is generally a black sheep in the

this. While vowing vengeance on , the
male sex, these decaying - sisters were'
ttpmfounded by one of 'their . ' number,.
Miss Panthca L Kennedy, who arose and
most charmingly flung into their midst

California Bionic Christ°.
George Alfred Townsend, in a San
Francisco letter to the Chicago Tribitne,
givei the account of a prominent Cali
fornian: ' • •
Alvinza Hayward is the hero of a story
equal to "Monte Christo." .He is a Ver
monter, who operated with a man named
Chamberlain in a gold lead which was
full of indications, but yielded nothing
tangible. Chamberlain at last went away
disconsolate, giving Hayward all his in
terest. The latter worked at the thing
for months, anti was buried deeper into
the ground, but at last family was
next to starving; all his laborers left him,
and be knets of no friend in the world
" My- godr he. said
,to, this. man, who
had meantime, been engaged in stock rais
ing.; "I atis on the verge of a great strike.
I know it. Can't you give me a little
money?" • _ I
Chamberlain bad been on the verge
several times himself, and ho shook his
bead sadly. But he had $3,000, his all,
buried under a haystackona he went and
dug it up. '
" Take it, old fellow," he said,,with Cali
fornia heartiness, "do your best!' • •
With the money Hayward recommenc

spent, and his: men wereletlaced to a bag
of beans fir nourishment, when to the
eye of hope the precious ore blazed sad
deuly up, yielding the first products of
the Arnadore• mine, the richest in the
world. When this mine was paying 840,-
000 a month, Hayward made over to his
friend one perfect third of it. Chamber
lain retired upon 81,500,000 and moved
east to ednvate his children, Hayward
buying "nick the whole Finally, even
Hilyward grew tired, and;ho, sold but the
mine to_watock company' of which Glen.
Colton is President.. Tbo mine wilt - make
8450,000 cet this year, and Colton said
last week: "The Amador mine will hold
out longer than he will."

A correspondent of the Philadelphia
Press, writing from Valley Forge, says:
Valley Forgo is Ma deep hollow on the
west side of, the Schuykilt river, twenty
two mike from Philadelphia, lyingdirect
ly at the mouth of a small stream known
as Valley .Creek. Here about the
1740 a Sorge was. established by , Isaac
Potts, a member of thp family that settled
POttsgrove er Pottstown,' from 'whiCh it
afterwards took the name of Valley
Forge. In, October 1777, Washington
(who was encamped" about fourteen miles
above Philadelphia, where he marched
shortly after the disastrous battle of
Braiidywine,) resolved to march his troops
into winter quarters at the Forge, which
was unquestionably the most secure spot
in Eastern Penn Sylvania, I do notintend,
however, to Write pp American history,
but would advise ..my readers, in lie
language of Zaptain Cattle, to "overhaul
the books, and, when found, make a note
The first thing,of course, for a Stranger
to see is Washington's Headquarters, a
a small two and a-half story house, made
of a peculiar brown colored stone, suppos
ed to have been built about 1752. It is
noW inhabited by Hannah Ogden, who
was born in it, and has lived there more
than sixty years. She is always pleased
to see visitors, and they are courteously
shown over the house from cellar to gar
ret, if they wish it. On - the second floor
is a small room said to have been used as
a bedroom by Washington. - Innumerable
closets, and secrereceptables for papers;
etc., are to be found in-,every corner. As
we pass out of the house a large, old-fash
ioned clock, standing in the corner of the
ball, attracts our attention, made, as the
superscription states, by.. " Thomas,Wag
ner, London," but with "no date.
The fortification is about one half a
mile off. Just on the other side are tivo
large hills, covered by denke woods, known
as Mount Joy and Mount Misery. It is
popularly believed that Washington, hav
ing been lost on the latter mount, careful
ly spiked his cloak, a la Sir Walter
Raleigh, and kneeling-, offered up an 'ela
borate prayer, and immediately found his
way to Mount Joy, where a party was
sesiching for him. Hence tho mane of
About a mile beyond the Forge, on the
land of Dr. J. N. Fiersol of Philadelphia,
is a large oak tree, through the trunk of
which a cannon ball is said to have pass
