the fact that in early spring the pros

four out of that family within one

that perhaps the location of the house

to Mr. Linkswiler's residence on An

Playing with Fire and not Get
ting Burnkd. A ridiculous sham
wedding took place at the office of the
U. S. Hotel on Sunday night last,
which came near resulting in an as
tounding catastrophe. The bride
groom was a double witted San Fran
cuco runner, and agent of the Morn
ning "Call," in 'the full Bloom of life,
and the biide a slender Jacksonville
youth of the male persuasion, dressed
in female clothing. The so-called
brother of the bride threatened to
shoot the young man if he refused to
marry tho girl, whom it was charged
he had seduced. A minister was called
in, (also a sham petsonage), to solem
nize the marriage, and the culmmatiis
point of the faice was reached. The
fun was a trifle too much for the "per
force" bridegroom and half-crazed he
strenuously protested against the whole
proceeding. The farce, after it h.id
gone its length, was brought abruptly
to a close by the Madame diiving out
the hilarious wedding guests and the
would-be brother of the bride. And
when the true gender of tho bride was
discoveied, he too was fired out of the
hotel. Two newspaper men, one rep
resenting the S. F. Chronicle, and the J
other a Portland paper were present,

A DirncuLT Journey. George
Schumpf who went to Camp Harney
after some passengers which he did not
get, had quite an experience, both
going and coming. As he had never
been at Harney before, he found the
distance very long, especially the stretch
of rond over tho "desert." The distance
from Jacksonville to Camp Harney via
Lakeview is 48i miles, which he ac
complished in eight days, but losing
his way the distance traveled was con
siderably increased. Both of Mr.
Schumpt's horses took sick from drink
ing alkali water, and he w&s compelled
to hire a span of fresh horses to drive
home with. Recro'sitig the desert
from Camp Harney he was accompan
ied by Ladd Savage and Geo. Howard,
and between the threw the grub supply
grew so light that they had to travel
several days on homeopathic rations.
When they got into tho station they
were as hungry as wolves. Mr.
Schumpf sayi some of tho valleys trav

he saw a herd of cattlo 50,000 strong,
at another a herd of 12,000, with the

To the Trade: Practical experience
has demonstrated tons that the trade re
quires a choice old Bourbon for immedi
ate use. For it is well known that straight
whisky tlint is absolutely pure requires
age, great care anil attention, and our old
Davenport whisky possesses all the above
qualities. The grain used in the distilla
tion of our J. II. Davenpott whisky is
carefully selected from the finest, richest
and very best grown in the state of Ken
tucky. The water is drawn from one of
the tinest limestone springs in the state,
the peculiar properties of which have
gained lor KentucKy whiskies such world
wide celebrity. This process makes our
J. II. D:.vcnport a pure, hand mado, sour
mash vhisky, and we claim that for deli,
cacy of flavor, purity and medicinal qual
ities, it stands unexcelled.
Yours truly Scnm.rz fc Vox Bakgex.
