At one of the leading theatres
where the serried ranks of youth
and beauty were sparkling like a
sea of glory, in gay and costly
attire, a favorite actress dropped a
part of her gearing—tell it not in
Gath !—her garter, in fact. Who
this actress is will be told by tier
press agent, never fear.
Two proud and prominent gallants made a plunge for the circlet,
each seeking to recover it. A
scuffle ensued which merged into a
fight. No flashing swords had they
as their forbears of olden times,
but each drew his trusty barlow
knife and begau carving the other,
like striking Chicago butchers after
a derelict maverick, and the
way they slashed each other will
be better told after the coroner's
What became of the coveted
garter is not known, but, no doubt,
some Gloomy Gus picked it up and
restored it to its fair owner. This
is a small matter—the incident we
mean. What looms up to Himalayan heights and Matterhorn magnificence is the demonstrated fact
that the days of chivalry, long
gone by, have returned in their
pristine splendor to Cincinnati.—

The treasure removed from Pretroria

The Standard Oil combination is understood to be operated upon the policy

There is said to be an accumulation
of as much as fifty tons of guano on the
roof of the white tower of the Tower of

In the "Dry Diggings" near Auburn, Jo**0*
Placer county, California, during the
mouth of August, 1848, one man got
$16,000 out of five cartloads of dirt. In
the same diggings a good many were
collecting daily from $800 to % 1,600.
The Prussian government has just
completed a very deep bore hole at Ott-
weiler, near Neunkirchen. This is said
to be the deepest bore bole in the world
and has a total depth of 1,808.36 meters,
or about 5,8t>l feet.
There may be 150 specimens of elk

Miller, the well known cattleman, owns
125. His title to them is of the best.
He r.ever bought them with money, but
he went into their wild haunts and
saved tbem from the destruction which
was wiping their species out of existence. The elk which he now owns
compose what is prorably the only herd
of American elk which it will be possible to save.
Re-oiling of the Santa Fe's roadbed is
in progress from Albuquerke west to

from the company's Los Angeles headquarters. The oil lays the dust and
frees the roadbed from what was formerly considered an almost unbearable
nuisance and one that on northern
transcontinental railways has not yet
been checked. /.>*"

Duncan Ross and Martin Bur-
rell had a talking match at Eholt
