They removed to this county some six
teen years ago, where Mr. Ueeson soon
took front rank as one of the ablest
attorneys at this bar, a position he has
ever since- maintained. Last evening"
a party of relatives and personal
friends gathered at the cosy family
home jut outside tho city and a
most enjoyarle evening was spent.
A splendid supper was served and in
teresting incidents of the early days
were related. The guests in departing
txlended congratulations and best
wishes for many moe equally feli
citous celebrations of tho happy event
which had united their lives.
Commodore Thomas was in town
this morning with a pair of mice which
are found exclusively on Cora Island
and which no work on natural history
has any description of. The little
animals are little larger than the com
mon mouse and are snowy white ex
cept on haek and hoad which is a
bright golden color. Tno ears are
very large well rounded at top and set
up very straight. Tho eyes are jet
black and are larger than those of a
rat. They have a bright intelligent
face, are quick as lightening and would
make awful cunning pets. How they
ever got onto the island and where
they came from is a mystery that has
not yet been solved. Six of them havo
been captured and they soon show re
markable docility and adaptation to

Miss Anna Ilouk was the victim of a
very pleiisant surprise party last even

her nineteenth birthday. She was
rbsent from home when the young
people gathered, and it proved a com
plete surprise to her when she re
turned and found that they had taken
possession ot tho house and wero mak
ing themselves at home. High-five
and other games were in
dulged in until the guests were
ushered into the dining room, where
refreshments wero served by Miss
Dora Ilouk, assisted by Mr. Frank
Goodman, who proved to bo an ex
cellent waiter. Tho guests departed
at a late hour, leaving many -beautiful

The train had broken in two and as
he stood on tho tank of tho engine
getting water the roar section ran
into tho train, knocking him over thd
end of the tank onto the rail, when
the wheels of a box car passed over
him, severing his body in twain. He

No Judge Yet.
The jury was excused today till Aug
ust 24 and court adjourned over till
tomorrow morning. Judge Ramsey's
illness and the faiiuro of Judge Sedge
wick to come down according to prom
ise made the adjournment necessary.
It is very unfortunato for both attor
neys and litigants that tho business of
the court could not bo attended to, but
the matter can not be helped. Wo
hope Judge Kamsey will soon bo well
enough to tako a restful trio to the
mountains which is what ho needs.

The Episcopal Sunday school and
their 'friends, numbering in all fully
ahundred, wentout to Vallery's Grove,

notwithstanding the beat,anice time is

BUT 0.E STANDARD OF VALUE.
To the Editor of Tub News:
The populists and free silveritos
must give up tho notion that a fiat
creates value. All the government
does to a piece of gold or silvor is to
put their stamp on it as an assurance
that the weight and fineness are cor
rect. It saves us from tho trouble of
finding that out by other means. Gold
and silver wero used aa tools of ex
change long before laws wore made
concerning them. Thev would now
bo used as tools of exchance if all laws
wero abolished concerning them; 23.22
grains of gold dust would buy as much
of any commodity as a gold dollar now
does. licfore there wero anv rail
roads west of the Missouri river, men
came from Denver with" gold dust in
buckskin bags and bought what they
wanted with it. I have seen Mr.
ilanua weigh the dust and with
chemicals test its purity. If congress
can add to tho value of gold or silver
with a fiat, it can add to the value of
pewter with a fiat. Whon the free
silverites abandon this fiat delusion
they will have nothing to stand on.
Can congress put a fiat on silver and
make an ounce of it equal an ounce of
gold in value, or an ounce of pewter
equ.il an ounce of silver V It can add
to tho value of pewter by fiat, as well
as add to the value of silver by fiat.
e cannot saiely nave but one
standard of value or measure. Wo
might as well have two standards to
measure grain, ouo holding CO quarts
and tho other 50. The one selling
would use tho small measure, as
they would call each measure a
buhel. Pass the free silver bill and
silver would bo the standard measure
and gold wiil go out of use as a tool of
exchange, and Mr. Carlisle tays it
would take tho present mints of the
United States fifteen years to coin
enough silver dollars to take the place
of the gold coin now in use. Why
people place so much value on certain
things is a fact no one can explain.
No lady, rich or poor, would take a sil
ver watch and chain and wear it if you
should give it to her, although it
measured time perfectly. If you
should give her a gold watch and
chain sho would wear it next to her
hoart. When the wife of . Orpheus
died, Orpheus went- to hell after her
to bring her back. Most men would
have looked around on earth to find
another to take her place. Powers
carvea nvo statues ol the Urook Slave
and sold each statue for five thousand
dollars. Mr. Todd would not give half
that much for a marble woman unless
he could sell her for more than she
cost him, but some men would. The
Corcoran art gallory at Washington
has tho first statue Powers carved. I
have gotten the subject. A word to
thoso who froth at the mouth when
thoy. talk about goldbugs: They
accuse goldbugs of coining money and
keeping it from the people. A man
who has a million dollars to loan could
get thirty thousand dollars for the
uso of it one ye.ir at 3 per cent.
Would ho not choose to loan it rather
than let it lie in a vault and earn
nothing,if he could bo suro to get back
his interost and principal. He had
bettor let his gold lie in the vault
ten years than loan it if tho populists
and free silverites get into power.
They would pass a law that he should
tako his principal and interost in old
scrap-iron, or paper promises, or
greenbacks convertablo into more
greenbacks. Goldbugs havo loaned
millions to build railroads, and more
than half the railroads have gone into
receivers' hands. These railroads
havo added billions of dollars to the
value of farms throughout the west. I
think that those men in congress who
voted for the river and harbor bill are
no worse than common thieves.

Tub World-Herald still insists that
the gold standard is what is hurting
the country. We desire to remind it
again that its editor, Mr. Bryan, and
tho paper itself, were four and six
vears ago declaring that the "robber
tariff" was the thing that wa9 hurt
ing us. The democrats legislated ou
the tariff question and there was a
panic. The money standard remains
the same todav as it has been for a
generation. If it is the gold standard
that hurts whv didn't the democratic
platform of 1S92 say so? The truth is,
tho democrats are playing the cuttle
fish by inking tho water so as to ob
scure tho issue and give them an op
portunity to retreat. Editor Bryan
and the World-IIorald having proved
false to chers. the public ia not likely
