Yon will donbtless like to know what
the craftsmen of tbh benighted section
have been doing during the holidays.
From the correspondent of the Observer
you will read of onr Christmas doings;
in fact, the large crowds eeen on our
streeta on that occasion reminded ye
old timers of the early days when gold
mintug was in its infancy. Good
humor and good fellowship prevailed j
the spirit of the season seemed to float
around like fleecy clouds which floated
across the bright blue sky above. The
lad ies of the surrounding country were
here in full force and with their smiles
ami pretty costumes assisted to brighten
and vary the scene and cheer the hearts
of these old miners from tbe bills and
canyons, for many of them may not live
to see the same sights agiiu on this, side
of tJS uark river.
.On the 27th, St. John's day, the mem

Silver Crock' Christmas.
Silver Creek, cno of our lemotctt
milling rninpx, observed Christinas in
a most enj iable manner and one whiih
similarly situated ramps would do well
to intitule nn like occasions. Our c r
respondent semis the following account:
1 lie miners ol silver cnek, together
with two miners fmni the head .of
1' igi!" ceck, responded to the invita
lion of Mr. nnd .Mrs. Leigh at the Melts
tunnel works above the foils and i
joyed a grand Christmas dinner. .Our
courteoi.s host and hostess made the
occasion one to be long remembered by
the asienililed gnesis alio declared Mrs.
I,eigh to h the uncrowned q'leen of
SiJver creek. Skooituin, tli" trapper was
eipecttd to be preterit but confined to
his lied from Bevere indispoMtion, '.sent
his reretf. The mountain orator was
expected to reply to the toast, "The
mineral of Southern Oregon.' After
a general good time the guests bade
farewell to their kind host and hcMci
and resolved to send to the Cot Hits
vote of thanks to the entertainers."
Mrs. Leigh, it may be remarked, is the
only lady on Silver creek. The Melts
and Leigh mansion is a substantial log
structure of more than ordinary claim to
handsomeness, situated at the lower end
of the Silver creek basin, one of the
most pleasant situations on tbe face of
Protected on all sides by the steep and
lofty mountains the air of the basin has
a peculiar mildness In winter, while
retaining the fresh and invigorating
quality of the mountain atmosphere
The cabin is in the midrt of a forest of
lofty pines and Cre. The pleasant sur
roundings enrhance the enjoyment of
auch an occasion as this, the social part
of which ia appreciated to the utmost by
tbe lonely miners.

The Burr Bit.
The agent for the tociety for the
prevention of cruelty to animals in New
York, recently captured a dcien pair of
burrs from lha mouths of horses owned
by fashionable people. In the circum
stances, it seems as if the hor.e show
might well he supplemented by some
sort of an exhibition calculated to edu
cate the publio in the matter of treating
horses decently. Perhaps it would be
interesting to exhibit some of the own
ers ot these horses with tbe burr bits in
their mouth, being driven about by
people who understand the business of
using the diabolical instruments.
The burr in question is a circular
leather pad, with the inside covered
with little stiff bristles, nails or screws.
This thing ia put on the bit so that the
spikes touch the horse's cheek, and the
slightest pressure on the rein or move
ment of the bead causes the burr to
rick the skin, and the horse starts
and prances with pain and irritation.
This ia supposed to give mettlesome
and stylish appearance to the turnout.
Undoubtedly, there is a resemblance
between the natural (riskiness of a spir
ited horse and the nervous jumps of
one tortured by contrivances of this
kind, but it does not take a very keen
observer to see the difference. It seems
almost too much to believe that civilized
human beings can deliberately torment
a sensitive and holple.es animal in this
fashion, but the burr bit is proof thtt
they do. Something ought to be done to
these people, A fine is a mere bagatelle
to them and imprisonment is not quite
painful enough for the punishment they
deserve. What really ought to be done
is probably impossible. They ought to
be harnessed to wagons and made to
draw loads, with burr bits in their
mouths, check reins on their heads and
the lash on their backs.

The Cubs-n Election
Tue Cubans have a curioui cui'.oiu,
politically. The adherents of a party
or candidate that is likely to be dt feuled
simply refuse to vote, So it is reported
that the supporters of General M into
(or president will not go near the poll
or vote at all. What advantage this is,
it any, is not easily distinguishable in
this country, though perhaps tho sulk
ing non-voters iuiagiuo (list by not
participating in the election thuy will
have a better right or a freer license to
revolutu" as soon as the succe-sful
man is elected.
This is about whit will happcu in
Cuba, as soon as the power of the
United Slate Government is withdrawn
it it ever is withdrawn. But it is not
likely that the United States Govern
ment will permit many revolutions,
rebellions or insurrections in Cuba
Since wo bava treed the Cubans from
Spain at so great a cost, wo are not like
ly to allow Cuba to be misgoverned, as
most of the other Latin American states
ate. The final outcome, perhaps not
delayed for many yearn, will be the an
nexation of Cuba to the United Stales,
and it is liable to conid In, when it dees
come, as a full-fledged Male. The Cu
bans will very likely reditu any inferior
political position, and we will probably
grant them statehood.
This will not bj entirely phasing,
possibly to I'orlo Itico, llatinii and the

in a territorial condiiton, but they will
