Kentucky is one of the few states
in tin union which legalizes lotter
ies. But Kentuck3r cloes worse
than this. She appoints her own
state officers to conduct, the lotter
ies, and appropriates her share of
the proceeds towards the building
up of a stale library. There have
been live of these lottery drawings
in Kentucky, from which the gross
sum of SG,25G,000 was realized.
Of this amount there was awarded
to the holders of prize tickets,
3,1 -12.000. The librarv was riven
4M.')i)f 32, and the remainder,
$-,GS:U03 6S, stuck to the fingers
of the lottery managers. Thus, it
will lo seen., the library fared worst
of all. This sum of"S24,30G 32,
so comparatively small, is but a

FatiovBoSmct's Gold Mountain.
"We are glad "says the Black-bills
Times, that that famous mountain of
gold, the existence of which is said to
have been known to Father DeSmet,
has been found, even if it is in the
mind of the editor of the Bismarck
Tribune. It lias been discovered till
the same, and we are glad of it. Wit
ness the following item from the last
issue of that paper:
Father DtSmet's famous mountain
of gKl seems to have been discovered
at last. At any rate quartz has been
found in the llockville district which
yields 2 50 to the pound 5,000 to
the ton, and there are immense quan
tities of it in sight, and there is a story
afloat that a "solid body of gold has
been found weighing several tons.
This mythical mountain of gold has
allured many a credulous tenderfoot
td roam the hills and gulches' in quest
of it, but now they can quit their
weary pilgrimages, cry Eureka, and
take a rest.

Sweet Singer of Michigan: Here is a
specimen chunk cut from his latest idyl:
She leaned upon the fence.
And then she hove a sv.
And for V:s footsteps down
.She waited patiently.
And presently lie came to view,
And the' she yelled a yell
A hcveiily howl of joy she howled.
And her bosom swelled a swell.
The fine, bracing weather of the

Dr. Mary "Walker comes to
the front with the latest "true ver
sion" of the Charley Ross story.
She says that when he disappeared
She hastened to his parents, and
gave them mot only condolence,,
but also money, and her personal
efforts to fathom the mystery. She
stumbled across a'bit of informa
tion which led1 her "to bcHieve that
all was not rirht, and she finally
discovered fnat Charley's father
had put the little boy out to board'
with a famijy who weredn the cori
spiracy. She says she did not ex
pose the fraud, because It took lior
many months to find out where
the boy was kept. She claims that
Ross has made a large sum of
money out of the sympathies of
the public, and that he has offered
to pay her handsomely if she would
keep her knowledge to herself.
The boy would have been discov
ered long ago, and, indeed, arrange
ments were once made to have the
child found in St. Albans, Ver
mont, but it was known that she
would expose the farce, and so lie
lias been kept secluded. She says
that within three weeks slie has
seen and spoken with the child,
and that she is acquainted with
his entire history since "the sup
posed abduction. She will publish
a book in two or three weeks con
taining the complete story of what
she calls the greatest hoax -ever
perpetrated upon the American
people. A good many people have
given considerable credence to Dr,
Marys story, while "others think it
is a shrewd device for raising the
wind in a forthcoming -literary
A passenger on the Oregon, name
