of Little Butte has lately been engaged
breaking hoiscs. Last Saturday he
had for the first time succeeded in put
ting the rope halter on a four yoar old
filly and tied it to a tree. The animal
not relishing the enforced disciplin and
in its effort to break away got entan
gled in tho rope, fell to the ground and
broke one of its fore legs. On the
following day, (Sunday) Mr. Brown
broko another horse, this time a four
year old gelding, but with no belt r
success. , The animal would not stand
the rope at all, and jumping high in
tho nir fell backward with its head on
the hard ground and broke its skull.
To put an end to tho misery of the un
fortunate beast Mr. Brown had to kill
both of them. They were both of su
perior stock of horses and would have
been worth 100 .apiece if they had
outlived the breaking process.

The greatest event of the season was
the happy union of Thomas Jones, Esq.
and Miss Pully Maria Smith which
took place a few evenings sinco amid
the most "bon vivant raquet" Wo
sent our Mr. Jenkins to report and he
describes the affair as brilliant beyond
description. . The bride, belonging to
the well known Smith family, was "au
revoir" in every particular and leoked
a perfect "bijou" and the groom, rep
resenting a long line of Joneses, a very
solid man weighing 225 plump and
worth not less than 000,001. What
could be said to express the "resarchy"
cut of his apparrel and give an idea of
his "bon jour" and ci-devant grandeur!
During the impressive ceremony, tho
bride and groom stood gracefully un
der a" bell, composed of the leaves of
beautiful "cabbageiana" a little out of
season but contrasting sweetly with
the sprigs of Osage orange in the
brido's hair, which was tastefully ar
ranged by that princo of artists, " Pro

of their contributions that they told the

der the sofa. Then, nfter a very
"bouillon" rendition of Straus's Chef
D'Over, "The Monkey Married the
Baboon's Sister," by Prof. Thomas Cat,
tho wedding guests retired -the young
hoping that the benutiful custom of
loading newly married people with
gifts would never fade away; and our
Mr. Jenkins, sighing to think ho had
not waited till it came in fashion.
Those presenting tho beautiful gift
were very happy as they knew our
Mr. J. would put their names in the
An instaneo of Brady's rascality or
close connection with tho thieving
mail ring can be found in his neglect
to prosecute the bondsmen of lluutley,
Cue of tho ring, who obtained the route
frohf Ashland to Lakeview at 7,500
then had service increased, receiving
13,000 therefor, then failed nnd forced-
tho Department 1to re let "it -at
19,000 just aboot a fair prico. If
lluntley s bondsmen were not "straw
men" they should have been made to
fulfil the contract There is a marked
contrast in the caso of Mr. Garrett,
who carries the mail to Crescent City
from here. Ho was not in the "ring,"
took the contract too low, with good
bonds, and as he is honest, carries it at
a loss and is fined every timo he fails
to connect even on account of impassa
ble streams.
Time was when under the head of
"personals" tho papers recorded only
tho movements of royal personages,
great aristocrats, and celebrated thieves
of the former for information, of tho
latter to warn the people. Now every
body is noticed, and "the thing is run
into the ground," if over anything was.
Every man is "that genial gentleman,"
"that highly respected Mr. so and so,'
"one of the leading citizens," etc.;
every woman is "the elegant and ac
complished," etc.; every girl the "fasci
nating belle," "the leading, the beauti
ful and intellectual." It's very dis
gusting everybody knows it means
nothins; it is perfectly Chinese in its
unmeaning excess of politeness, and
among sincere people is deemed in
horrid taste.

A correspondent at Waldo writes inl
referenco to the Crescent City wagon
road thus:
Editop. Sextixel. You will recol
lect the bargain which Mr. Gnsquet it
Co. entered into a year ago, that they
agreed to build tho iuiddlo section of
this road, and that Del Norte county
was to build tho other end. Have they
built any road? Have they ever com
plied with any part of that agreement I
Why did they not tell us six months
ago that they would not, or could not,
build the road, nnd not keep us in sus
pense so long. Why havo they until
completely tornered persisted in say
ing that the road would go, and that
they would get a chaiter in January
&c &c and then failed to let us know
just what they did do. The peopls
ot this county have their opinion
about it Waldo.
