First Class, .Th,c entertainment given
by Rentfrow'a Pathfinders, at Wright's
hall last Wednesday evening, was not
largely attended, but was pronounced, first
class by nil who witnessed it. and, better
than any troupe that has visited VVijon for
some time The price of admission charged
bv the majority of troupes that vip jt ns, is
ciltirciv too much, and not in ai-t'ordancc
with the times, and if they are not greeted
with large audiences, the reason should
certainly be obvious to thcift. The troupes
that have recently visited tljiis place, have
been composed of th,e cheapest Kind of five
cent men, who, wjicn in the caij. would
not think of charging more than 'J.') cents
admission, yet will visit the west, bringing
their parsimonious habits with them, and
pxpect ub to pay them a dollar ndru,Uston.

It Didn't Wokk. Our friend Jo,, Yew
ell, of Pylc canyon, likes to. keep things
in good shape around Ins premises, but
candor compels us to admit that p,u is not
a success in some thines. He put in the
full day Tuesday, blacking t"s harness,
with an original mixture of his, composed
of lamp black, tallow, tar and several
other ingredients which he thought would
bo good. Wednesday ho hitched up his
bay and white cvitteri and started to town.
"When he arrived here, his friends were
surprised to see Ju. driving what appeared
to be a hrindle mustang from tl;o pampas
of Honth America, and u beautiful black
and white zebra froiu Africa. Upon clover
investigation, however, the inccurecUess
of their surmises was established and the
true cause of the peculiar appearance of
the animals explained. Jo. was a little hot
in the collar and his friends forbore putting
anv unnecessary questions. He will prob
ably discard this new method of blacking

Sebiols Accident. On Friday last Mr.
Chas. Wilson, while riding near Mr, Con

Dr. Capps was sent for and deviated the
sufferings of the unfortunate lpim. who is
now getting along as well as could be ex
pected. Mr. Wilson is a poor map, and has
a family, which makes this misfortune all
the harder to bear.
