IT'S Kb L'SE. A theatrical com nan v.
traveling under the title of "The Madison
Square Lncle Tom's Cabin company,"
opened here Friday evening to a crowded
house. As the play pulled along; it was
discovered mat there was no Uncle Tom.
no dogs noLegree. Five poor actors were
trying to carry all the parts, and the only
scenery used was a representation of
noman ruins, 'ine largreand critical an
dience sat still until the middle of the
second act. and then made a rush. The
Roman ruins were ruined forever, and the
actors got such a bouncing about that two
01 them are still hiding iu the underbrush
along the river.
This is another proof that this town can't
be longer imposed on in theatrical matters.
We want as good as they have in New
York or nothing. There must be nothing
left out. If there are ten parts we want to
see ten actors walking around the stage.
If there's a mule in the play then show
him up, and he's got to be alive and kick
ing. We are an up and up people. We pay
cash and want the value of it. We appre
ciate a good thing, and have uo use for sec
ond class material.
Gone Home. As will be seen by an obitu
ary notice published eisewhere in this issue,
Major Dayton, one of our old pioneers, has
passed from earth away. Whisky killed
him, though you would never suspect it
from reading the obituary. lie played a
square game of poker, but as an offset was
quarrelsome, intemperate and given to
promiscuous shooting. We can't say that
we mourn his demise, or that he will gain
anything by the change to another climate.
He was the first man in this town to shoot
us, and was about the only one we ever
fired ai who didn't drop when the gun
went off. Only two days before he was
taken sick he sent us word that he was
camped on our trail and would split our
other ear with a bullet. la the midst of
life we are in death.
An Unexpected Pleasure. Monday
morning we received a call from Henry M.
Jackson, Esq., of Leavenworth, Kan., who
desired to insert an ad. in The Kicker
asking for information about his brother
Tom, who was known to be in the town a
year ago. In the course of our conversa
tion it came out that his brother was oth
erwise known as "Nevada Ned," and we

were able to furnish information at once.
We killed the man on Apache avenue on
the 3d day of last September, and his grave
is marked "No. 9" in our cemetery. "Ne
vada Ned" was out for game that day, but
we did not draw on him until he had fired
We took Mr. Jackson out to view his
brother's last resting place, and also
showed him the bills to prove that we
gave the departed a forty-two dollar fu
neral. He expressed his gratitude in the
strongest language, and subscribed to THE
Kicker and paid a year in advance. Mr.
Jackson goes from here to Tucson, and we
cordially recommend him to the people of
that town as a thorough gentleman. He
offered to refund us the forty-two dollars,
but we couldn't accept; t. We make it a
rule to pay all funeral i xpenses out of our
We Shall of Course. Our contempo
rary is out with the suggestion that the
coming Fourth of July be celebrated in
old fashioned style, and wants to know
if the governor can't be induced to come
here and deliver the oration. We don't
think he can. We think he has more
sense than to entertain such a thought. If
there is any celebration we shall, as mayor
of the town, be in it. We shall lead it. We
shall deliver the oration, lead the proces
sion, and probably boss the fireworks in
the evening. There is no salary attached
to our office. We were elected for the
honor there is in it, and propose to squeeze
the old machine perfectly dry. There may
be some mayors in this territory who are
satisfied with the title, but we want every
thing connected with it. If our esteemed
contemporary circulation 400 wants to
be the means of getting somebSuy shot, let
him encourage his idea as set forth above.
Can't Remember. We have received a
letter from Philadelphia asking us if a
young man named Victor Hugo Scott has
applied at The Kicker office during the last
year for a situation on the editoral staff.
We can't remember, as the aprTHcauts
number half a dozen per week. We have
a dim sort of recollection that such a per
son did call, fiowever,,and that three days
later he went over to Clinch Valley and
the boys took him for a horse thief and
laid him away. We will look over our files
as soon as we get time and see how it was.
Probably half the newspaper men who
coine this way get planted sooner or later,
and it is almost impassible for us to re
member names and dates and where they

Columbus Wasn't Such a Great Man
"I hain't no hand to praise myself, as yo'
all know," observed Abraiu as he tilted his
chair back against a sugar barrel in Dan
Skinner's grocery and looked around over
the usual assemblage. "I say I hain't no
hand to praise myself, but I do consider to
believe that If Christopher Columbus was

Our Friend Tells the Sergeant How He
Well, I hope you haven't been swindled
again," remarked the fat police sergeant
as Carl Dunder entered the station house
the other afternoon.
"Sergeant, vhas dere some hayseeds on
my coat collar?" queried Mr. Dunder in a
lively way. "Schwindled! I guess not!
If somebody tooks me for a spring shicken
he vhas left."
"Then you begin to catch on to the cus
toms of the country, do you?"
"I do. I vhas awfully discouraged der
last time I vhas here, but now I vhas all
right. Nopody can fool me again. Shust
gaze on dot!"
He' pulled out a gold watch and chain
and handed them over with a broad grin
on his face.
Well?" queried the sergeant as he briefly
examined them and sighed heavily.
I! our days ago," said Mr. Duuder, "I
goes down to Toledo to see my brudder-in-law.
On der train a young man comes to
me und says vhas I Carl Dunder? I vhas.
"70U VHAS SIIEALOCS!"
Dot pleases him, because be reads of me m
der papers, und he knows how bigdiearted
I vhas. He likes to raise money to buy
some grave stones for his dear mother, und
he vhill sell me dot watch forfJOO."
"Great Scots! but you didn't pay him no
"Sergeant, do you see some green grass
in my eye?'' chuckled Mr. Dunder. "I
may be a leedle slow, but I vhas no corn
field. I say to dot young man dot I doan'
care if he has lost six mothers. I vhill gif
him seventy-live dollars und not one cent
more. He feels mighty bad, but he is
obliged to sell it to me. How vhas dot,
sergeanta 300 watch for seventy-five dol
lars! Don't catch on, eh?"
The sergeant looked very serious and did
not reply, and Mr. Dunder continued:
"A stranger comes in my place der odder
day und says his wie und shildren vhas a ;
burned oop in a fire in Buffalo. He wauls
to go oudt by der first train, und it vhill
be a great favor to him if I cash a check
for thirty dollars."
"But you didn't do it?"
"Sergeant, do I look Ifke some catnip?"
demanded Mr. Dunder, as he stepped back
and straightened up. "I feels sorry for
dot man, of course, but I shust tell him
dot igif him fifteeen dollars und no more.
If he doan' like dot he can go avhay. He
takes me oop. Here vhas der check. I
saves shust fifteen dollars on dot deal."
The sergeant looked at the check, which
was signed "John Smith," and in a sor
rowful voice he asked Sir. Dunder if he
had anything else to relate.
"Vhell, I do a leedle peesness yesterday
dot I like to shpeak aboudt. A man comes
in my place und says vhas I Carl Dunder?
I vhas. All right. He like to see roe
quicker dan der resident. He reads of
me in der papers, und he knows I vlwis a
sharp, shrewd man. He likes me to go
into peesness mit him."
"What so' t of business?"
"Vhell, it vhas a new kind of fly screen.
It vhas a fly screen mit a hole in der center

inventor. Nopody ever invents dot idea
before, und he sells me a half interest for

There were two colored men talking in
loud tones at the othej end of the railway
platform, and I walked down to hear what
the row was about. One of them was a
deacon in the colored Methodist church ia
town and the other a drayman. As I drew
near, the deacou was flourishing a paper in
his hand and saying:
"Dar's de Aggers right dar! Yo' owes
de church 'ziictly fo'teen hundred dollars
pew rent, an I'ze bin sent to cu kIiuI jo's

"I reckon I'll dun pay it," suid the dray

The Ailiauce is becoming too con

true Allianco mon seen) not to realize
that, thoy are engaifod in a struggle
that means life or Ua:h to them or
their children. If the present de
termination of the leaders of both
parties to ignore the financial question
and defeat the free coinage of silver is
persisted in und is successful, the con
trol of the currency will remain in the
hands of the national banking associ
ation and the money power behind the
throne, and in less than two years the
real estate of this country will be
owned by aiien syndicates and the 31,

to the finish, and the leaders in the
fight are old confederate and Union

there is but little to expect from either
of the present political parties, but
they are bold enouah. brave enough
and strong enough to organize a party

"A dollar will buy more now than

of fine logic to show that the present

who has to pay farm products for
that dollar or any product of toil for it.
He is "in the soup" without spoon or

of these dollars it is fatness and rich

Gentlemen: Your favor of the 12th inst. duly received. According to the
description of the wire you have used, I would say, that it is just what we want.
We have no wire nearer than N. Y., so you had better arrange for your own
wire, unless your gates are so constructed that we can put on- the wire without
much trouble and you allow us the difference. Make our order seventy-eight,
including the one sent to Chicago instead of seventy-five as was ordered.
Yours truly, Southwestern Steel Post Co.
