rich humor, clever character painting, and
felicitous descriptions of town life and

The dirt of the Kansas mines of that State

seven cents to the pan. Thu Ilcrald says
"There will be no more arrivals from
the gold mines before Spring. Those
who are there at present have already gone
into winter quarters, while those on the
road will do the same as soon as they ar

will be carried on this winter, and wo

rush to the mines has ceased, but simply
because it is impossible to make the trip at

and possibly loss of life. But thousands
are now on the fiontier, preparing for an
early start to the spring. At least five
hundred men in this place will leave for
the mines ns soon as the winter breaks;

conviction that he will recover although
many weeks must pats before he can re
gain his former strength. Mr. Guuldy's
side is still paralyzed but as soon as his
wounds are well the galvanic battery is to
be applied. Mr. Gouldy retains his facul

freely to converse on all topics. He has
not yet been made acquainted with the su

there is every reason to believe that he
will fully recover. The girl Murphy

chosen Clerk by 54 to 45, Ellis Campbell
