On Tuesday morning the Fossil-Arl
ington stage met with a terrible accident
while coming down the thirty-miie hill.
One of the wheel horses slipped and fell
and tipped the stage over against the
bank, breaking the coupling and tongue.
Wm. Stewart, the driver, was hurled
violently to the frozen ground and the
four horses and front wheels of the stage
all rolled into a barbed wire face at the
foot, of the hill, cutting several of the
horses in a frightful manner. Although
conscious, Mr. btewart was unable to
get up and attempted ' to crawl to the
home of J. B. Smith, a mile down the
canyon, but bad to give that np also.
He lay . there from about 9 o'clock until
after 11 o'clock, when Charley Baker,
who was on bis way to the saw mill for
umber, foand the poor fellow, who was
almost frozen. He brought him to the
home of Mr. Smith, where bis injuries
were looked after as well as possible
under the circumstances. As no bones
were broken, Mr. Stewart did not think
it necessary to send for a doctor, saying
that he thought he'd be all right in a
couple of days.

pouches and brought them to Condon,
reaching here about dark. The mail
was sent on horseback to Clem and like

Ike Weather Clerk's Negligence.
The weather clerk was evidently in
vited ont to dinner yesterday, and it is
also evident that he accepted the invita
tion, and went off withiut leaving any
one in charge of the office. As a.result.
the weather went on A spree, kicked ont
of the traces and remarking "It is a cold
day when I get loft," proceeded to pop
the sidewalks, burst the water pi pee,
frost the window panes, set humanity
stamping its fee and blowing its collect
ive nose, star! the oldest inhabitants
tongue wagging about the winter of
1492, and tha unaccountable freaks of
the thermometer, since that time. The
snow creak en under foot as though it
were alive, ajhd the stars in the evening
came out bright, twinkling, cold and
distant, as a best girl to the wrong fel
low. About 11 o'clock the moon sailed
up the eastern sky, lying fiat on ber
back, evidently knocked ont by the
cold, while Lthe old bachelor who lives
up there with her. had his legs doubled
.up like a jajcfc knife and bis whickers
covered with frost. This morning the
wood dealer bas a smile as big as a
Bryan dollar and the haugbty plumber
is easily distinguished by bis kingly
bearing, and the homage done by meek
and honible citizens with "busted"
water pipes and flooded basements. ,It
is to be hoped the weather clerk may
return to bis job soon, filled with good
things, and consequently in good humor,
