foundations of religion and attacking
the bulwark1 that have surrounded the

The Princess Sallie,
The Princess .Sallie Wiuneruucca ia
on tho war path. The Silver Stato
mentioned the lact of her being dnmk
hero in town, and she has sworn ven
ge nice against all connected with it.
Yesterday sho sent a dispatch threaten
in ir to have the heart's blood of the ed
itor, and if she did uot succeed in that,
to light him with pistols or knives, juat
to show him how a drunken vroman can
shcot. The operator who telegraphed
the dispatch from Lovelocks, says white
men wrote the dispiteh, and probaoly
incited her to send it. They will hove
an opportunity to explain their connect
tiou with the matter, as warrants have
been issued for the arrest of all who
are known to have been connected with
tho alfxir. A druolcn savage, who
threat; ns to t ke the life's blood ofa a
white person, should be given to under-,
stand that there is such a thing as a
iail in the cooimuuitv. Silver Stato.
Married Men's Indicator.
Edson is very w. il in his way, says
the New Yotk "World, but the invent
or that will be remembered when all
others are forgotten is a party named
Mickley, of Rjston, who has just ren
dered iiis iellow-tii&n an inestimable
sen ice by pvoduoin an apparatus call
ed ttto "M.irried Men's Indicator," or
the patent "Domestic Barometer." This
ingenotts device is oimply a wonderful
ly sensitive arra goment of the ordina
ry barometer, which infallibly detects
the m st minute alterations in the at
mospheric conditions. The married
men returning late ftotn the alleged
"lodge," or other locality contraband of
war, indulges in tv fearful speculations
as to his reception. He .simply takes
the "Indicator" from its case and in
serts i's projection arranged for the pur
poe through the key-hole. Iostautly
the domestic iomparature within is re
corded by tho dial. If it marks S. F.
sot fair; S. A. sound asleep; or even
C. S. orocs but sleep, he brings his
propitiatory bos of fried oysters well to
the front, chuws a eloveand enter?
boldly. If, however, the faithful little
iuatriimeut reports S. K storm brew
ing; or V. S. L. very squally, with
lightning, he doesurt bso any valuable
time in warfare, but hies him to the
nearer' hotel and sends an "up all night
with u sick friend" uote, with some
matinee tickets aud a new bonnet homo
in the morning. Truly, if science
keeps on in this way, this world will
be quite a comfortable plaoe to live in
yfier aw hile.
