How Martin's SMftlessness Made Him
Nez Perce I. T.News.
About three years; ago Frank Mar
tin sold his Horn Silver mine at Era
for $56,000. By his drinking and
gambling he has reduced this to about
81000 and his wife now petitions the
Portland court to have a gardian ap
pointed for him. Idaho Register.
To read the above paragraph
one would naturally say that there
was nothing in it: that it was a
common every-day occurrence.
But read this; Three years ago
Frank Martin was as worthless and
lazy a vagabond as could well be
produced one of those who never
missed a meal or paid a cent. Ho
resided at a place called Era, in
Alturas county, in this territory,
had no occupation and sponged
his living from his brother, who
had a small ranch and kept the
Postoffice by tho roadside. One
day his brother's wife requested
Frank to cut some wood. He re
fused. Whereupon she beat him
out of the house with a rolling-pin
and forbade him ever enter her
door again. Sad and dejected at
the condition of affairs, Frank
walked up a hill in the rear of his
once happy home until within a
short distanco of its summit, when
he sat down upon a flat rock, at
the same time stretching out his
legs and bracing his feet against a
small bowlder in front of him. He
had not been there long the bowld
er gave way and went rolling down
the hill. Frank raised himself and
listlessly followed after the rolling
stone and just here we will di
gress and say that his then experi
ence exploded the old aphorism
that a "rolling stone gathers no
moss" and picking it up, was
surprised at its weight and appear
ance. He showed the stone to
some miners soon after, and they
pronounced it horn silver ore of
the richest character. Thereupon
Frank prospected the place and
soon found a ledge which paid big
from the start, so that in less than
a month after opening the mines
Frank Martin's check was worth
its face, from $3000 to $5000. lie
had hosts of friends indeed his
friends were red hot reaching
from Houston on the north to
Blackfoot in the center and Hallcy
and Salt Lake in the east.
Ono evening, after delivering n
shipment of his ore to the reduc
tion works at Hailey, Mr. Martin
dropped into a restaurant and or
dered a square meal. He was
promptly served by a comely
waiter-g'irl, and being in a some
what hilarious mood, challenged
the girl to marry him then and
there. She accepted his proffer, a
justice of the peace was sent for,
and the twain were made one.
About six months after this he sold
his mine for the sum above stated,
and, naturally enough, the tran
sition from extreme indigence to
much wealth unshipped what little
intellect he had.
Distress After Eating.
This result of indicestion will no

"The unbridled and unlicensed

Better Notions of Business.
No branch of business has been
more redeemed, organized and
moralized by recent progress than
that of publishing public journals.
In former times the publisher dis
tributed his product to a loose
multitude, in driblets oi a dollar
or two a year, trusting them to
pay at some time when they could
think of nothing else to do with
their dollar or two. All that loose
practice has gone by. Tho pub
lisher does not cast his bread upon
the winds and waters, not know
ing that any will return. The
man who asks credit for a paper
nowadays is a very poor style of a
To subscribe for a newspaper
and ask th'e proprietor to chargo it,
is now about as tough as to take a
drink and ask tho barkeeper to
charge it. Subscriptions and sales
are for easb, and the publisher who
buys paper gets valuo for that
which goes out of his hands, and'
does not have to say to the trust
ing paper-maker, "I have scat
tered it abroad with the pigeons,
and the subscribers don't pay,
and I can't." Under the ready
pay system he has no cover for
starting a paper as merely an irre
sponsible adventure, running it a
year or two at the cost of the
paper-maker, to see if there is any
thing in it.
