TEA AND COFFEE.
Their Injurious Effects on the System
when Used.to Excess.
It must be admitted that the abuse
of tea and coffee may be attended by
serious injuries to the human organism.
The pernicious effect of the active prin-
ciple of qoffee-caffeine, which is iden-
tical with theine, the active principle of
tea--on certain animals is shown in an
elaborate paper byDr. Leven. He found
that one to ten centigrammes of caffeine
acted as a fatal poison when given to
frogs, first quickening the action of
the heart and the repository organs,
and then inducing astetanic state. To
guinea pigs fifteen to twenty centi-
grammes proved fatal, first increasing
the action of the heart, which in one
instance wassso rapid that the pulsa-
tion could not be counted, and then
followed by paralysis of that organ.
The same results were obtained with
rabbits. One gramme given to a dog
did not prove poisonous; it increased
the activity of the heart and the
respiratory and secretary organs, but
after three or four hours the symp-
toms disappeared. M. Leven, in short,
established as the result of his experi-
ments that the active principle of coffee
acts first on the heart, and quickens
the circulation and respiration, and that
in the second place it increases the
tension of the blood-vessels-an effect,
it will be noticed, precisely the oppo-
site of that of alcohol, which dimin-
ishes the tension of the vessels.
It irritates the nervous centers, the
brain and spinal cord, and also the
nerves themselves. 7It excites the
"nerve-cells," says M. Levene, "not
only by its stimulating effect on the
circulation, but also by a special excit-
ant action due to the caffeine itself."
The results of M. Leven's physiological
experiments correspond precisely with
the symptoms which have been ob-
served to occur in consequence of ex-
cessive indulgence in tea or coffee.
Coffee contains seventeen per cent. of
caffeine, and it is reckoned that in the
quantity daily consumed by an ordi-
nary Parisian there is enough to poison
five guinea pigs! M. Levon quotes the
case of a young medical man who suf-
fered from coffee intoxication. For six
months he had taken five or six cups of
coffee daily. He experienced violent
palpitations, tremblings in the arms,
cramps in the legs, a convulsive cough,
and permanent contraction of the pu-
pils. When he discontinued the use of
coffee these symptoms disappeared. I
have, again and again, had occasion to
observe the characteristic symptoms
which the abuse of tea and coffee pro-
duce. The most common are distress-
ng persistent palpitations, an irritable,
excited state of the nervous system,
a sense of dread of impending
calamity, throbbings in the head, and
sometimes an approach to giddiness, in-
ability to sleep, obstinate dyspepsia-
only to be relieved by abstaining from
ts cause. I believe it is the ex-
perience of most hospital physicians
ihat a large proportion of the cases of
lyspepsia which crowd the out-patient
rooms of the London hospitals are in-
luced by the large consumption of tea
by the poor. The disturbing effect of
;he abuse of tea on the action of the
heart was not likely to escape the
notice of so cute an observer as Dr.
Stokes of Dublin, and in his work on
;he diseases of the heart he calls atten-
tion to the following among other
cases : A gentleman of great intel-
.ectual attainments had been in the
habit of passing a great part of the
night in literary and scientific la-
bors ; during the evening and
through the night he was in the habit
of drinking largely of tea, without any
thought of its doing him harm. At
length he became subject to paroxysms
if quick and vehement actions of the
heart, accompanied by intense distress
and oppression, with a painful sense of
impending death. He became greatly
depressed in spirits, and believed he
should die in one of these dreadful
paroxysms. On examination after the
paroxysm had passed off, his heart was
found to be perfectly sound. But a
very curious affection of the nervous
system became permanent. He found
the greatest difficulty in walking on
level ground; he had an irresistible
feeling that'he should slip and fall, and
on one occasion, wishing to visit a
friend who lived near him, after many
ineffectual attempts to walk on the
level, he actually proceeded to his friend's
house on all-fours. I have already
alluded to an antagonism which I
believe to exist between the effects
of tea and coffee on the one hand and
those of alcohol on the other. They
both excite the heart to increased ac-
tion, but the excitement produced by
alcohol rapidly passes away and leaves
a state of calm or (if the dose has been
large) depression, and hence its tend-
ency to promote sleep; tea and coffee
also excite the heart; but the excite-
ment produced by these beverages does,
in many cases, leave behind it a state
of irritability instead of calm, and
hence their tendency to prevent sleep.
Alcohol relaxes the blood-vessels, and
so diminishes vascular tensions; coffee
and tea increase vascular tension. Al-
cohol, in its secondary effect, soothes
the nervous system ; tea and coffsq' irri-
tate the nervous system. In isa k. "wn
fact that a cup of strong tea or coffee
dispels the effects of slight excess in
wine ; it is, perhaps, not so well known
that a few teaspoonfuls of brandy or a
glass or two of sherry will remove the
nervous irritability produced by tea or
coffee. I fear much of the "sly drink-
ing" on the part of women is induced
by states of nervous irritability origin-
ally excited by over-indulgence in tea.
The practical issue of all this is that ex-
cessive indulgence in any stimulant,
whether alcoholic or non-alcoholic, is
most hurtful. Of the grateful, refresh-
ing and invigorating properties
of tea and coffee taken in
moderation, and occasionally rather
than habitually, no one can
be more sensible than I am; but I am
convinced that if a stimulant is needed,
as it often is by men of business under
occasional pressure of work, the best
results will be obtained by taking the
bane and the antidote together-a small
quantity of tea or coffee with a small
quantity of an alcoholic beverage.
When what I have termed tea-dyspep.
sia is produced, the onlyplan is to leave
off drinking that beverage for three or
four months, after which its use may
often be resumed with impunity. Cho-
colate is a very useful substitute for tea
or coffee, but it does not possess the
property of immediate stimulation to
anything like the same degree.-Fort.

TUESDAY......... AUGUST 14, 1877
FENIAN PRISONERS IN ENGLAND.
Sir Stafford Northcote, Chancellor of
the Exchequer, has notified Mr. O'Con-
nor Power, one of the Irish members of
the House of Commons, that he pro-
poses to take up the cases of the im.
prisoner Fenians, and it is surmised
that they will soon be released from
jail. These prisoners have been con-
fined eleven or twelve years for political
offenses. They were not murderers,
robbers, nor incendiaries. On the con-
trary, they were without exception men
of pure moral character. -Their offense
was that of the men who laid the foun-
dation of the great American republic.
They loved their country and wished
tosee her free. They failed and were
sent to prison, and treated with in-
famous cruelty. Contemporary English
writers have depicted them as honest
and earnest but mistaken enthusiasts,
who sacrificed their all from patriotic
motives, and whose code of honor was
such as few men nowadays possess, and
yet for all these long years they have
languished among thieves and murderers
in the common jails' of Great Britain.
Great efforts have been made through
all these years for the release of the
Fenian prisoners, but in vain. When
the Queen assumed the title of Empress
of India, a horde' of fifteen or twenty
thousand convicts in the prisons of
that country were pardoned by the
royal clemency, but no pardon was
granted to these political prisoners.
The course of the British government
in this respect has had an effect in Ire-
land which has proved very injurious to
the government. Ireland has been for
many years the nursery of soldiers for
the British army, but, latterly, so in-
tense is the hatred of the service
that it is more difficult to
get one recruit than it used to
be to get twenty. England is in a
critical position now. The little cloud,
no bigger than a man's hand, which
hangs over the empire, is as ominous as
that which made its appearance over
the parched fields of India at the com-
mand of the prophet. It may cover
the whole heavens at any moment, and
its bursting may bring the deluge. In
such an emergency England will need
that all her dependencies rally round
her. She cannot afford to be at vari-
ance with any considerable portion of
her population. The sons, of the men
who stood by Wellington in the
Peninsula and on the field of Waterloo,
have all the vigor and manhood of their
sires, and it is quite likely that a politic
desire to obliterate as far as possible
their present hostile feeling has
prompted, a tardy act of humanity. It
should have been done long ago. The
motive will be so apparent at the
present critical juncture that the liberal.
tion of the prisoners will be received in
a spirit of triumph rather than of
THE OPHIR BEVELOPIENT.
A short time before going to press on
Thursday last a reporter of the CHRON-
ICLE was informed that a valuable
strike had been made in the Ophir
mine. He hurriedly jotted down all
the information he could obtain on the
subject and his report was printed.
There were several circumstances posi-
jifiely known which gave credibility to
the entire story, but several errors were
subsequently shown to have been made.
The Gold Hill News-which for sev-
eral years has been engaged in printing
the most ridiculous pufls of wildcat
mines, and thereby aiding in deliberate
swindles of the public-is much elated
because this Ophir strike has not turned
out to be much of a shower after all. It
is well to bear in mind the fact that
though -the CHRONICLI was led into
error, it was the first and only paper to
send a reporter into the mine and make
public the absolute facts. Further-
more, we will say that we believe noiw
that the strike is a very important one.
There is a change of ground, with en-
couraging indications ; and we believe
that if Sharon and his friends
had enough of the stock in their
hands to-day, work in that drift
. would be pushed right ahead. We
should not have to report only one man
there, and him "sitting down." It
does not tax the memory much to re-
vert to events a few years back, when
the Yellow Jacket mine had a magnifi-
cent body of ore in sight, which was
left untouched until the price of the
stock was forced down from $1,400 to
$200 per share (a foot). To get it
down to that figure an assessment of
"00 per share was. levied (which was
Aided before the day of sale, and
jixi a few weeks thereafter a dividend
l100 per share was paid). If a news-
"paper at that time had reported a
valuable development in Yellow Jacket,
it would have been denied just as posi-
-tively as the Ophir strike is denied to-
day. Let the Gold Hill News remember
that its master controlled the Yellow
Jacket mine then, and he controls the
A Compliment to the Chronicle.
The Pioche Record of August 11th
contains the following highly compli-
mentary notice of this paper's course :
The Virginia CHRONICLE is doing a
good deed in showing up the rascalities
indulged in by the officers of some of the
mining companies in that portion of the
State. Fully one third of the people in
Nevada feel very thankful to that paper
for the step it has taken in unearthing
the fraud practiced upon the people by
these unscrupulous rascals, and if the
CHRONIOLE will continue in the good work
which it has begun it will win the admira-
tion and good wishes of the inhabitants
of the Pacific coast. "Well done, thou
true and faithful servant."
The appreciation which the people of
the whole State entertain for the
CHRONICLE's work is best shown by
the great increase in the paper's circular.

SOME RAILROAD TALK.
The Eenterprise has taken up the dis-
cussion of the railroad question in
earnest. Its chief owners-D. 0. Mills
an' William Sharon-being the owners
of the Virginia and Truckee railroad,
it is quite natural that it should use
every effort in opposing the new road.
Sharon's little Penny Whistle at Gold
Hill is keeping discreetly mum on the
question, as it did on the Cooper-Curtis
rascalities. The task of looking out
for the people's interest in these matters
naturally falls on the shoulders of the
EVENING CHRONICLE, and we therefore
feel called upon to reply to the railroad
article which appeared in Sunday's Pn-
terprise. Referring to the proposed
direct road-which will be running
within twelve months as surely as the
sun shines-it says :
If the road was finished to-day, the
lumbermen of Truckee could not-except
in a rushing season like the last-send
their lumber here. Yerington, Bliss &
Co. can now, and can for ten years to
come, lay down all the timber needed
here at the depot of the Virginia and
Truckee road at Carson, as cheaply as the
Truckee men can lay down lumber at the
The Truckee lAunbermen will de.
liver lumber at the depot there for $10
per thousand feet. Yerington, Bliss &
Co.- charge $23 in Virginia. Does it
cost $13 per thousand ($78 per carload)
to haul the lumber over the 23 miles
between Carson and this place ? If so,
that is a powerful argument in favor of
a competing road. We quote again
from our neighbor :
In one payment for timber lands
they (Y. B. & Co.) paid the Central
Pacific Railroad Company 830,000. If
in this they have shown superior business
sagacity, and have secured the short line
of freighting, Truckee people cannot
The Virginia and Truckee Railroad is
not the short line." Either of the two
new routes proposed from the Truckee
would be shorter and cheaper to operate
than Yerington, Bliss & Co.'s route
from Lake Bigler to this city. But
even were the Virginia and Truckee
Railroad the short route, of what benefit
could it be to either Virginia City or
Truckee when the freight rates are
much higher than they would be by the
other route ?
The quartz mill proposition is all folly.
** ** Any man with a quartz mill
on the Truckee could almost make his
own terms with the Virginia and Truckee
Company. But where would he get the
If there were a dozen 20-stamp mills
on the Truckee to-day, and if ore could
be transported thither at $2 per ton,
they would all be kept busy. The
direct road could profitably transport
ore for $1 per ton.
Again, notwithstanding all the bluster
of Truckee, there cannot be raised $20,000
in money in that town toward a road.
Truckee will furnish every dollar's
worth of lumber required for building
the road, and take stock in payment.
That is just as good as cash, isn't it?
The Enterprise is terribly mistaken
if it thinks it can arouse any sympathy
for the Virginia and Truckee railroad
in Virginia City, but it tries very hard.
It says: .
They [ the people of virginia re
member that without the Virginia and
Truckee railroad they would have been
helpless a year ago last Fall.
The people of Virginia do remember
that, at the time referred to, the rail-
road charged full rates on all lumber
supplied to the Relief Committee, al-
though the lumber dealers all sold
lumber to the Relief Committee at re-
duced prices, and the remembrance is
not calculated to raise the Virginia and
Truckee in their esteem.
Almost every mining company is under
direct obligations to it [the Virginia and
That is a stupendous joke. The min-
ing companies under obligations to the
Virginia and Truckee railroad. Why,
the money that built the road was ob-
tained principally from the mining com-
panies, as a loan without interest, that
was to be repaid in services. Sharon
controlled the Yellow Jacket so com-
pletely that the Trustees were induced
subsequently to rob the stockholders by
making the railroad a present of most
of the money so loaned. The Enterprise
certainly cannot include the Yellow
Jacket as being "under obligations" to
the railroad. Of the money which the
Savage Company advanced to the road
there is still due nearly $100,000, so
that mine can not be regarded as
"under obligations." The Virginia
and Truckee railroad, furthermore,
compels the Savage mine to pay more
for wood, etc., than it asks of other
mines, because it has the Stvage "in
the door," as it were.
There are a few other points in our
neighbor's article which require the
CHRONICLE'S calcium light, but we will
reserve them for a future exhibition.
THAT a direct railroad from Virginia
to Reno would be a direct benefit to
every one holding a share of stock in
any mine in Storey county is an indis-
putable fact. The Reno Gazette strikes
one of the nails on the head as follows :
An assessment of one dollar per share
was levied to-day by the Trustees of
the Julia Mining Company. Wood at
$12 to $14 per cord in Virginia City is
what is producing so many of those as-
sessments. When wood is delivered by
a direct railroad from here to the Corn-
stock mines for $7 per cord, stockhold-
ers will hear of less assessments.
Hence the road proposed would, if
built, benefit every stockholder on the
Pacific coast, and their name is legion.
A Reported Strike at Belmont.
AUSTIN, Nev., August 14.-The Bel-
mont Courier of the 9th says a rich
strike has been made in El Dorado
South at Belmont. Antimonial silver
ore, assaying from $300 to $800 per ton,
was struck while raising a chute from

fined ledge of five feet in thickness of
this character of ore.

SpeciAl to the Evening Chronicle.]
LONDON, August 13.-A correspond-
ent at Karabunar writes: Appalling
accounts continue to come in of the
misery of fugitives from the districts
devastated by the Bashi-Bazouks and
the Bulgarians. Thousands of women
and children are homeless and perishing
for want of shelter, medical attendance
and food. Immediate help is most
sorely needed. It is proposed to dis-
tribute the fugitives about Constanti-
nople, Adrianople and Philipopolis.
The correspondent suggests the forma-
tion of a city of refuge on an island
near Constantinople, under the protec-
tion of a neutral flag and a neutral
guarantee from the belligerents. The
crops are rotting in the ground, and no
provision is made for Winter. The
correspondent speaks favorably of the
Turkish regulars, but severely blames
the government for employing or not
controlling the irregulars, who commit
the worst excesses. Even the fugitive
women and children who come for pro.
section to the Turks have to be guarded
by regular troops, lest they should be
further injured by these savages. The
Bulgarians are behaving much in the
same way as the Bashi-Bazouks, and it
will be impossible for Christians and
Mohammedans to even live together
again inthe disturbed districts. Even
Russian sympathizers severely condemn
Russia's conduct in first instigating the
Bulgarians to revolt and then leaving
them to the mercy of the Turks, whose
right to treat them as rebels is hard to
A GENERAL SLAUGHTER OF CHRISTIAN
MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN BY THE
LONDON, August 13.-A Bucharest
correspondent telegraphs : I have
written the following as I received it,
and, from the terrible accounts which
fugitives continually bring over the
Balkans, I fear it must be too true. On
July 31, the day of the Russian evacu-
ation of Eski-Saghra, the Turks ordered
thafall the Christian men, women and
children should be shot as they left
their houses, and those who remained
within were burned alive. An order
was given to burn down and destroy
every particle of Christian property.
Many leading Turkish merchants took
part in the affair. The Turks dis-
patched a large number of Bashi-
Bazouks all over Tchirpan district.
This district is one of the richest in that
part of Turkey. It contains a very
large proportion of Christians, over
thirty churches and 500 schools and
colleges, all of which have been burned.
The destruction extended to the vil-
lages of Boghdan Mahelsi, Rani and
many others, in all about sixty, con-
taining from 150 to 200 families each.
Scarcely fifty persons escaped alive.
The Bulgarian fugitives at Gabrova and
Selvi estimate that from 12,000 to 15,-
000 Christians have been massacred in
Eski-Saghra and Tchirpan districts
alone. Soldiers were posted along the
road from Eski-Saghra to Kezanlik with
orders to shoot everybody passing.
Snlelman Pasha Advancing Upon
LONDON, August 14.-It is considered
doubtful if the Shipka Pass willbe held
much longer by the Russians. At pres-
ent the Russian army is penned in at
Tirnova and deprived of liberty of ac-
tion. This morning's dispatches an-
nounce that Suleiman Pasha is advanc-
ing through the Balkans by Recditch
Pass. This route would bring him
down upon Elena and the direct road to
Tirnova, where he would engage the
Russians and enable Osman Pasha and
Mehmet Ali Pasha to effect their junc-
tion. When united the Turkish armies
would confront the concentrated armies
of the Czar. The report comes from
Constantinople, but is not official, that
the Turks have evacuated their position
before Plevna in favor of a better one
for defensive purposes behind the town.
Both the War and Peace Parties In
England Abusing the Ministry.
LONDON, August 14.-There is in-
tense dissatisfaction over the failure of
Parliament to secure pledges from the
Ministry as to its policy on the Eastern
question. The war party is furious
that intervention is not announced,
and the peace party is alarmed at the
absence of a pledge against interven-
tion. The latter fear that if the Rus-
sians gain a decisive victory Disraeli
may plunge England into a war with-
out the countenance of Parliament.
Unless Russia gains an overwhelming
victory the campaign will go over
another year. Unless Servia co-oper-
ates and permits the Russians to march
around the Balkans, the Turks have
entire confidence that they can keep
back the Russians till October, when it
is hoped diplomacy will secure peace
on the basis of yielding the country
south of the Balkans.

SUICIDE IN THE CEMETERY.
On Sunday afternoon the dead body
of an unknown man was found in "The
Dell," at Lone Mountain Cemetery.
Apparently the man had been dead
about two days ; he was about 40 years
old ; five feet nine inches high ; wore
dark brown mustache, and beard of a
few days' growth ; wore dark brown
overcoat, dark sack coat, dark brown
vest, dark checked pants, clean linen,
and a black felt hat. His clothes were
a little worn, but neat and good. He
had also light undress kid gloves, and
a Malacca cane. An empty whisky
flask lay near him, and a small tumbler,
containing crystals of strychnine. An
empty vial, marked with that poison,
was found in his pocket ; also a match-
box, with the letter "S." Three gold
rings, evidently ladies' rings, were
found on the little finger of the left
hand. The remains lie at the morgue

vention adjourned until 2 p. M.

The Bflllsh Parlianemnt Prorogued.
LONDON,August 14.-Parliament was
prorogued this afternoon until October
30th. The following is the Queen's
speech : My Lords and gentlemen-
I am happy to be able to release you
from your attendance upon Parliament.
My relations with all foreign powers
continue friendly. The exertions which,
since the commencement of the dis-
turbances in Eastern Europe, I have not
ceased to make for the maintenance of
general peace, unfortunately, have not
been successful. On the outbreak
of war between Russia and
the Ottoman Empire I declared.
my intention of preserving an attitude
of neutrality as long as the interests of
the country remained unaffected. The
extent and nature of those interests
were further defined in a communica-
tion which I caused to be addressed to
the government of Russia, which elic-
ited a reply indicating friendly disposi-
tions on the part of that State. I shall
not fail to use my best efforts, when
a suitable opportunity occurs, for the
restoration of peace on terms compati-
ble with the honor of the belligerents
and with the general safety and welfare
of other nations. If the rights of my
empire should be assailed or endanger-
ed, I should confidently rely on your
help to vindicate and maintain them.
Gentlemen of the House of Commons,
I thank you for the liberal supplies you
have voted for the public services. My
lords and gentlemen, in bidding you
farewell, I pray that the blessing of
Almighty God may rest on your recent
labors and accompany you in the dis-
charge of all your duties."
The Famine in India.
CALCUTTA, August 14.-At a public
meeting held at Madras on the 9th
instant, to consider the steps necessary
for securing help from England for the
famine sufferers, the Duke of Bucking-
ham, Governor of Madras Presidency,
stated that the famine area contained
18,000,000 people, of which a large
proportion were dependent for their
daily food on the exertions and activity
of those who transport grain to the
country. The necessity for supplies is
steadily increasing, and the wants of
Madras are already beyond the means
of the Presidency. Every aid- that can
be secured is needed to save the people.
The increasing severity of the distress
necessitates an appeal to public charity.
Dr. Corrist, the Sanitary Commis-
sioner, said' that there were already a
million and a half of people being fed
and over half a million had died. A
resolution was adopted that the prin-
cipal cities of England, Scotland,
Ireland and India be informed of the
urgent necessity for assistance. The
mover of the resolution said more were
found dead inl a single morning in
Madras than had died in the whole
LONDON, August 14.-The resolution

THE SITUATIONi EXPLAINED.
A Succinct Account of Recent 3Mli-1
tary Movements nuld Their Proba.
A dilapidated person wiith a bulga-
rian cast of couintenance, a torpedo
Boie, and a general military aspect-
the basement of his apparel suggesting
a disastrous warfare attended by a long
succession of repulses-entered the
Delta saloon this morning, and, after
taking a casual glance at a newspaper,
he approached the bar with a mystify-
"Do you know how th e ussians
are going to chaw up them Turks when
next they get at 'em, like a bag of cats
run through a sausage machine ?"
Pete Dunn was in charge of the al-
coholic breastworks. His experienced
eye ranged suspiciously over the
stranger's form, and he answered,
coldly t "I have not paid much atten-
tion to the war, sir."
"Well, I'll just show you," volun-
teered the man of martial sagacity-"a
little gin and sugar, if you please. You
see it's all strategy. The Russians are
just closing in on the shady side of the
quadrilateral with their left. Here is
Ruschuk and Nincompobalus, whiclt
the Turks will have to get out of when
the center comes in on the othercorner,
and the garrison at Ballacoop is cut
out-" Here the stranger gulped an-
other heavy drink from the gin bot-
tle, which represented the cit-
adel of Hakamasha in the diagram,
and continued : "The right will jump
in and drive the Turks out of Yeukew-
asky, and then they will all take to the
Balkans, and the Russians -will haul
'em down out of the trees, and 'push
'em over the side into the Danube, and
belt the stuffing out of every dog (f 'em.
It's all strategy, strategy, my boy,"
concluded the author of this startling
theory of the campaign, as he turned
from the bar and walked away ab-
stractedly. For an instant Mr. Dunn
was overwhelmed by his efforts to com-
prehend the situation, and then he
called oat : "Here, my- friend, you
haven't paid for them drinks," but be-
fore he could get hold of his club and
execute a flank movement round the
end of the bar, the accomplished pro-
fessor of strategy had doubled on him
and effected a rapid but orderly retreat
down Union street.
Mr. Dunn now reads the Turkish war
news with more interest than ever.
A CRUSHER ON THE BLACK HILLS.
Teh-Cent Checks the Highest Used at
Faro Ganmes-People Leaving the
Country In Flocks.
The latest news from the Black Hills
was brought by an old Ophir miner,
who returned last Friday. He fully
coincides with all the unfavorable re-
ports which have lately .been received
rom the new El Dorado, and as a
:lincher vouches for the truth of the
following : The highest-priced checks
at faro games are, ten cents apiece.
When a player buys two checks and
gives the dealer a two-bit piece he is
handed five cents change. There are
some of the old-fashioned copper cents
n circulation in the Hills, so that five
cents in change is nearly as much of a
load as a man cares to carry about. If,
while playing at a table, a man wants
a drink, the dealer will ring the bell,
and the barkeeper will take the order, 1
but will not deliver the drink until i
three checks are passed to the dealer
by the player ordering it. Upon the I
receipt of the three checks the dealer t
will return five cents change and hand i
Stwo-bit piece to the barkeeper. No (
ne will give any tobacco away, i
given a chew of fine-cut being
unobtainable without the money. I
The Hills have been losing their popu-
ation by hundreds since the middle of s
ast April, when it became evident that r
rater was not obtainable in sufficient i
quantities for placer mining purposes, a
They have been losing in public estima-
ion all over the country, and no one
ow thinks of leaving his present place
f residence to go to the Black Hil.s.
The miner who brings this information
ays that as a mining country the Hills "
re pretty generally considered a fail-
re. There is some good land there,
however, and this will insure the set-
lement of the Hills by farmers who c
will be content with what crops they r
an raise as a reward for their industry.
otherwisee the country would become
populatedd in less than six months.
His Undeviating Courtesy, f
There was a rush at the American f
changee last night, and old Bill Gordon t
'as somewhat imposed upon by the in- s
rusion of a sagebrusher to his society s
n a double-bedded room. Bill is ex-
remely fastidious in his toilet artifices, g
nd ripe old bachelor as he is, he studi- b
usly pursues the science of maintain-
g a perpetual youth. When he awoke t
n the morningjhe observed the hoosier
making free with the implements of his
ressing-case, as if they were common 0
hotel property. Bill arose with a
awn, just as the hoosier was conclud-
ng his matitudinal preparations with a S
rigorous application of his toothbrush.
Well, stranger," observed ,
'you seem to finish your toile
'here I commence, and I guess \
ave to wait for you."
"Got all through now, sir ; fall I
plied the stranger courteously.
Old Bill thereupon arose, and seizin'
he toothbrush which the hoosier ha,
ist relinquished, he applied the soal
ad commenced an energetic cleansing
f the interstices of his toes and the
sseous terminals, r,
"Great hell-vetia !" remarked the a
oosier, regarding the process with a n
;artled expression, "is that what that e
,r brush is for ? I've just been scour- g
ig my teeth with it I" i
"No matter," replied the imperturb. $
ble Bill, you didn't hurt it a bit; I fi
sed it last night to scour the gall off a C
orse-collar, and it didn't start a o
Bill continued his fastidious toilet'
ensively, while the hoosier bolted to

A New Pump for Irrigating.
A new horse-power pump, a model p
d which is now in this city, is attract- tl
ig considerable attention. It is de- W
gned for irrigating purposes. The
gent claims that he can erect a set of T
ur eight-inch pumps that will have a ei
daily capacity of 300,000 gallons, and h
ill lift water to a hight of thirty-five g,
et, for from $400 to $550 per set,
while for greater elevations the only ad- T
itional cost would be for the pump
column. If the pumps can do only
alf of what is claimed for them they
ill prove a great success. s

HONEY AT AUCTION.
A Swarm of Bee Attend the Sale an
Try to Secure e ie Whole iivoice.
HowQ doti the little busy beee
ImlroVe each shining hour,
And gather honey roady-made
In Currie's auction store.
--Byron's Pilgrim's Progress.
A few days ago the firm of J. C
Currie & Co., auctioneers, received
consignment of honey from San Frar
cisco. Just before the sale began
case of the honey was opened for th
purpose of giving bidders a chance t
inspect. Now a honey-bee in Nevad,
where flowers are scarce enough to b
objects of interest, isn't such a fool a
to go five or six miles each trip t
gather an inferior quality of honey
when he can just slip into Currie'
auction store and get the pure article
all made up. In ten minutes after th
box was opened a swarm of bees cam
in and began the sampling process
Phelps, the auctioneer, didn't mind th
intrusion, and taking a case in hi
.hand, with bees swarming over it, in
vited the bidders to see just what i
Ladies and gentlemen : Of course
don't offer this box for sale with thn
bees, but if you want to take the bee
home with you you can. This is onli
to show that the honey is pure or thi
bees wouldn't take any stock in it."
Just then a bee lit on the auctioneer'
nose and deftly punctured it with it!
subtle sting, causing Phelps to drop th<
box upon the head of an old womar
who had been standing there all the af
ternoon waiting for a looking-glass t(
be put up. The box burst over hei
head, and the honey, mixed with bees
trickled down her back. Then she be
gan to dance-a wild, uncertain sort oi
a measure-kicking over stoves and
smashing up crockery on every side.
The bees began to circulate through the
crowd, and whenever a man or a womar
was stung, whether on the nose or or
the back of the neck, they began th(
same sort of vigorous dance. People
who had purchased various article left
them and cleared off without waiting
for their bills to be made out. It took
just about two minutes to clear out the
store and break up the auction; and
Phelps swears that no more honey shall
ever be sold from that store as long as a
brick stands in it.
TARGET-SHOOTING LAST SATURDAY.
Captain Page'a Explanation of 11.
Disagreement wih Captain Lord.
Captain Page, of the Washington
Guard, in referring to the statement in
yesterday's CHRONICLE that, at the
picnic last Saturday, the Sarsfields and
Washingtons objected to shoot under
Creedmoor rules, makes the following
Immediately preceding the firing a
dispute arose between Captains Lord,
Cosgrove and myself as to whether the
clause in the Creedmoor rules, restrict-
ing the time between each shot to one
and one-half minutes, should govern
the match. Captain Cosgrove and my-
self were perfectly willing to be gov-
erned by Creedmoor rules, with that
exception, as it was entirely unprece-
dented by any similar match in Nevada.
The inconsistency of Captain Lord was
palpable, when he insisted that the
natch should be a strictly military one,
and at the same 'time held to the im-
practicable minute and one-half rule of
;he Creedmoor. Captain Lord under-
stands military rules well enough to
know that army and Creedmoor regula-
tions cannot be confounded. If a shoot-
ng-match is to be conducted under the
one, the other must be ignored; hence,
f the match of the llth had been gov-
erned by Creedmoor rules it could not
have been a military one. As far as a
waste of time was concerned, I would
state that the Washingtons fired as
rapidly as possible, and their shooting
was completed twenty-one minutes in
advance of all competitors.

DEATH IN A DIVE.
A Fearful Scene in a Colorado Dance
PUEBLO, Col., August l.-West Las
Animas has two rival dance houses,
owned by a Mexican and an American
respectively. There was a private
lance at the Mexican house last night,
and Jack Williams, the keeper of the
American dance house, collected a
gang and went in to break it up. A
ellow named King and a Mexican
tabbed him. All hands then began
iring. About thirty shots were fired.
Antelope Jack, a desperado, was in-
tantly killed. Jack Williams was
hot in the back. The ball is still in-
ide of him, but he is still alive. Win.
Mullin was shot in both hips and dan-
gerously wounded. Stewart, a colored
barber, was shot in the spine danger-
usly. Antonio Sandonville was hit in
he hip and hand dangerously. King
received a deep cut in the neck, a
dangerous wound. It is thought most
f the wounded will die.
MR. BOSTWICK'S DEATH.
eized with Cramps and Drowned in
Three Feet of Water.
The body of H. B. Bostwick, who
ras yesterday drowned at Lake Bigler,
ras brought to Carson in the afternoon.
'oQm the Appeal we learn that when
'ody was recovered the limbs were
"drawn up in a manner which in-

shermen in a boat near him, but they
refused to render any assistance, giving
s an excuse that they feared some one
light charge them with murder in the
vent of not being able to save him. A
old watch was missing from his clothes

To Render the Liver Active
WHEN that important secretive gland re-
quires arousing, it is only requisite to resort
to Hostetter's Stomach Bitters, the national
remedy for inactivity of the b'lious organ, for
constipation and for dyspepsia, besMes those
malarious disorders to which torpidity of the
liver predisposes a person. Far movie surely
does this celebrated anti-bilious cordial accom-
plish a curative result than mercury or any
other mineral druh used to cure liver disorders.
In fact, such medicaments cannot fairly be
called remedies, since, although they may have
a temporary effect, they eventually fail to in-
fluence the system remedially, but instead
often do it serious injury. The Bitters, on the
contrary, are a specific of the most .alutarv
nature, and are likewise a reliable and agree-
able tonic, appetizer and nervine. aul3 lw

KILLED IN THE SAVAGE MINE
Morris O'Connor Fatally Injured in
tihe Shaft this Morning.
Morris O'Connor, a miner employed
in the Savage mine, was so seriously
injured while at work below the 1901
level, at about 8 o'clock this morning
that he died at half-past 10 o'clock-
two hours after. The accident occurred
while a new donkey-pump was bein
lowered below the 1900 station
Deceased's collar-bone was broken, as
were some of his ribs, and he received
other internal injuries. He neverthe
less preserved his consciousness, and
asked that a priest be sent for. Colone
Gillette, who was at the works at the
time, immediately sent for a priest and
a physician, who both arrived as the
wounded man reached the surface.
Deceased was over 50 years of age, and
has a wife and three children. He was
an Irishman by birth, and resided back
of the Ashland House, on the Divide.
He was a hard-working man, and had
been employed at the Savage for ten or
eleven years. He was a member in
good standing of the Miners' Union.
He will be buried from his late resi
dence to-morrow afternoon at 4 o'clock.
THE CLOTHING WAR.
Street Inspector Finlan Takes a Hand.
The city authorities have now taken
a hand in the clothing war which has
been progressing with such fierce vigor
for the past two weeks. A few days
ago Cohn & Isaacs put signs up over
the sidewalk in front of their store, one
of which represented a couple of mules
rampant, and the inscription, "WVe em-
ploy no Jackasses nor Horribles." Roos
also stretched a sign over the walk,
breathing threatening and slaughter
against all rivals, when Miles Finlan,
the Street Inspector, came into the field
with his light battery and ordered it
down. Roos struck his flag and re-
moved the sign. Cohn & Isaacs were
also instructed to take in their signs,
but they concluded to make a test case
and Mr. Isaacs was to-day arrested on
complaint of Mr. Finlan for violating
a city ordinance. He was taken before
Justice Moses and released on his own
recognizance. The case comes up on
Thursday for hearing.
