Sam had his hands full, when a young lady asked him for a "switch." Hi3 countenance recamc wrinkled with smiles, as he told the young lady that such an article was about the only thing they did not have in the abundance of their goods. His customers had no occasion to use "switches," for surely it was not necessary for them to resort to cruel flagellations, to exact obediance to their amiable caprices. The young lady reminded Sam in a whisper as gentle as a passing zephyr, that she did not want a "switch" to inflict orporal punishment upon any one else than herself. She referred to an essential accompaniment to a lady's toilet these days termed a "switch." Sam winced and has lost ten pounds avoirdupois weight since Saturday. well-selecte- Stage Line.

The calico ball last night passed off successfully and to the satisfaction of all who attended. About forty-fiv- e couple took part d Constancy and Devotion. A young a fine looking man, not over thirty years of age, came in from the East yesterday, and remained in this city all night. Their history is full of interest, going to show a woman's faith and a man's constancy. Three years ago the young man, who was a farmer, in Daviess County, Ills., became attached to a maiden, the daughter of a merchant. They to each other their troth, but plighted as the slender means of the young farmer prevented him from assuming the cares and responsibilities of married life, he abandoned his home and left for woman accompanied by well-to-d- o dance, and the enjoyment was general. At twelve o'clock the ladies and gentlemen repaired to the restaurant of Mr. 0' Harnett, where a sumptuous supper was served. They returned and kept up the dance until an early Nebraska. in the hour in (he morning. The m sic was furnished by the Oglen Quadrille Band, and was excellent, the pieces being new and well arranged. The first calico ball of the season was decidedly a success. Disgraceful. Complaints are made that some boys lately are in the habit of disturbing residents on Fifth Street. They annoy them during certain hours of night in various ways, such as opening and banging at the doors, then running away. Some times they amuse themselves by hurling sticks at the windows. Last night.at one place, windows were broken by these disturbers of the Men are also engaged in this peace. mean business. One of these wretches, who was in debt to a keeper of a restaurant, on that street, revenged himself by resorting to most disgraceful means. Attention should be given to these persons, who are not worthy ef indulgence or leniency. They should be at home at those hours, instead of amusing themselves in a way that has become intolerable to all peaceful people. Episode in Lifk. An illustration of the effects of the hard times was presented to observers yesterday afternoon upon the arrival of the emigrant traiR. Five intelligent and respectable looking young men were among the passengers. They have for the last ten months worked as common hands at Brownson station on the Union Pacific road. The extreme stringency which prevails in the East in all branches of industry induced them to seek relief in the Far West. Unable to raise sufficient means, they worked their way as far as Brownson and accumulated enough to pay their expeuses to Washington Territory. Two of these young men are physicians from Iowa, one a dentist and graduate of the Royal College of Surgeons in Canada, in and the other two were Clevein large wholesale establishments land and Toledo. They are all respectably connected, educated and Their experience in handling the shovel and the pick, laying and repairing rails, carrying ties, and in the other drudger ies belonging to section hands was rough, but they pride thcmselvec upon the resolute spirit they have shown in earning an honest livelihood and raising means to secure their passage to the future homes, the goal of their ambition. They eay that all along the route they have seen many situated as they were. At Antelope station there are three school teachers, but they consider that there is nothing strange in this phase of life. Such men knew no such word as "fail:" DiJa't Abe Lincoln split rails book-keepe- well-bre- for a living ? d. He afterward procured em as carter in the coal mines of ployment W. T.

She converted her valuable trinkets into ready money, and left her home, to meet him at Rawlins, where he had gone expecting shortly to seek shelter in an asylum for the blind in California. Tb couple were married at Rawlins, and are now on their way to Helena, where the bride has relations living. As they are not destitute, they expect to get along very well on the journey of life. The centennial tea party celebration this evening promises t be a grand affair. The programme offered is inter esting. From the Tribune: The coal companies are doing a lively business. The horse race yesterday between Walking John and and Mark Moore was one of the most exciting that has ever taken place in this Territory. Walking John was the winner, making time in 47 4 seconds. The race was a single dash of 800 yards. The French Guiana fever is raging. Several well known miners who went to that country a short time ago have writ, ten back to their friends in Salt Lake that the gold deposits are of extraordinary richness and easily got at. The Chicago smelter at Rush Lake produced during the last seven days eleven hundred and eight bars ot bul lion, weighing 88,0-1pounds, and 3,990 pounds of copper and lead. 8-- The Occidental. This well known establishment will be sold at publio vendue, next Saturday, the 20th inst. The day of sale has been changed from Thursday, on account of Sheriff Brown's engagements elsewhere. Pettt Thieving. A little girl, not more than seven years of age, was going to the bakery store this morning, to buy bread, holding a dollar bill in her hand, when she was met by a ruffian, who threw a handful of snow into her face, which blinded her for a moment. He then snatched the money from her grasp and took to his heels. The miscreant has not since been seen, but a "big brother" of the girl is on the lookout for him. Stanford. Mr. Jos.

The Centennial Tea Party was celebrated last evening in a manner highly gratifying to all who took part in the proceedings. Governor Woods presided, and opened the ceremonies with a few remarks, and a poem by Dr. Winslow, was read. Small tables laden with eatables and tea, filled the space beforo the President's desk, and tea of every quality was served accordiogto the peculiarity of each person's taste. The audience at the theatre last night, on the occasion of- the benefit of Miss Denin, was large and respectable. The comedy of "Pygmalion and Galatea," was eminently successful.
