Our friend Frank JElberson came
very near reading his obituary notice
m the columns of The Astoiuan, but
the following from the Sail Francisco
Chronicle dispels all fearaas to his fate.
We had come to the conclusion that,
if the descriptionsuited Mr. Elberson,
he had been murdered, ami placed in
the position described for the purpose
of removing suspicion, and causing
the impression that it was a case of
suicide. Happily for all, Frank still
lives, as the Chronicle clearly describes
another person. We quote the 2sth:
AN UNKNOWN MAN'S SUICIDE.
Yesterday morning about G o'clock
the body of an unknown man was
found lying dead in the lumber piles
on Hathaway 's wharf. His right hand
grasped a pistol, and a bullet wound
in the right temple showed the means
and cause of death. The bod' was
rigid, and death had evidently ensued
several hours before. On the body
was found a memorandum book con
taining the addresses of several pei
srns, and several receipts for making
bread written in German. Deceased
was about 23 years of age, medium
build, 5 feet 7 inches in hight, light
brown hair, goatee and mustache;
wore a light, cheap suit of cashmere
clothes, light brown check flannel
shirt, shoes and black felt hat. The
body lies at the morgue.
A Meritorious Entertainment.
The initial performance of Barlow,
Wilson, Primrose it West's Minstrels
at Metropolitan hall hist night, was at
tended by one of the largest audiences
that ever congregated therein, and a
more delighted assemblage it would
be ditlicult to conceive of. The com
pany is, without a doubt, the best on
the road, snd the entertainment
fully hears out the reputation the
company have made wherever they
have appeared. The dialogue was ex
cellent, the jokes funny and new, and
the olio, as a whole, original, success
ful, and of mirth-provoking character.
Messrs. Barlow and Wilson, as "end
men" are excellent in the "burnt
cork" arena of the present day, while
in their specialties, it would Ihj ditli
cult to find their equals. Barlow's
"Old Black Joe," was a fine piece of
character acting, and Wilson's elocu
tionary oilbrt, later in the evening,
was one of the features of the enter
tainment. Primrose and West's songs
and dances and clog and jig exercises
were executed neatly and skilfully
and loudly encored. The farces were
new, and the performers appeared to
have been especially chosen for the
characters. The banjo eccentricities
were highly appreciated, as was every
thing offered In' the company. It is
seldom an audience laughs so heartily
from the beginning to the end of a
performance as the one at Metropoli
tan hall last night, and the managers
may rest assured that whenever they
may revisit Astoria, an overflowing
house will be their portion. They
will give another performance this
afternoon, and one this evening. Fill

Scissors and Newspapers.
We commend tliefollowing from the
Newspaper Union, te some of our
friends who think it is a joke on a
newspaper man to accuse him of using
more scissors than pencils. "Some
people, ignorant of what good editing
is, imagine the getting up of selected
matter to be the easiest work in the
world to do, where it is the nicest
work tlsat is done on a paper. If they
find the editor with his scissors in his
hand, they are sure to say, "Eh! that's
the way you get up original matter,
eh!" accompanying their new and
witty question with an idiotic wink or
smile. The facts are that the interest,
the morality, the variety and useful
ness of a paper depends, in no small
degree, upon its selected matter, and
few men are capable of the position
who would not themselves be able to
write mairy of the articles they select.
A sensible editor desires considerable
selected matter, because he knows that
one mind cannot make so good a paper
as live or six.
Genius of Iinbels.
An old newspaper man from Ohio
has started a drug store in Detroit,
and a loeal paper, commenting on his
innovations, remarks that he will
either be a millionaire within the
next three years or "bust" in less than
six months. His store is very cheer
ful. Skulls, crucibles, forceps, chro
mos, false teeth, bones, almanacs,
parrots and sticks of liquorice are
scattered in delightful profusion, and
there isn't a drawer or bottle without
an original label. On one drawer he
has: "Glue she sticks right by you,
no matter what the weather." On an an
other: "Copperas Eat slow and
chaw fine." On anether: "Paris
green Sure in its operation, lasting
in its effects." The label on one bot
tle reads, "Buy some of me and stop
that blamed cough." Of another,
"I'm Sal. Petre who are you? " On
another, "Prussic acid Don't fool
around with a revolver." Hanging
around the wall is a beautiful sign,
which reads, "If you don't want to
ask for a fine tooth comb, point your
finger at me." At the baclc- end -'of
the store is a large sign, and it bears
the tender sentiment: "There is no
flock without its missing lamb. Some
times you find him in the bedstead.
I keep the stuff to make him weary of
life. Don't jisk for bedbug poison,
but call it the Lost Lamb Restorative.
I shall know what you mean." The
front of the store bears some happy
thoughts. Among them is one read
ing: "Walk right in here, if you had
buckwheat cakes for breakfast last
winter. Another one says: "I can
cure that red nose iu just fourteen
clays." A .third reads: "You man

The Buffalo Express has spent a
great deal of time in experimenting on
the intricacies of logic, and has ac
quired rare facility for putting an
argument in its most convincing form
of expression. Its masterpiece is in
reference to the use of tobacco, and H
proves beyond the possibility of a
doubt that the noxious weed produces
longevity, and does it in such a skilful
way that the inference thrustc itself on
the mind with marvellous force. "The
ancient Egyptians," it says, "were

j shape, and, mark you, the ancient
