The May Day Ball at the Opera
House Thursday evening may be
classed among the brilliant social
events of the season and was a grand'
success. The ball was gotten up by
the gentlemen of Columbus in honor
of the ladies as a fitting tribute to the
happy manner in which the leap year
customs have been handled by them
uunug iuc uiuBiug aiuuseiueui aettuu.
By common consent Messrs. Carl
Kramer and W. Damron were elected
a' committee to take in hand the ar
rangement on behalf of the gentle
men. Nothing was omitted that
would tend to the pleasure of the
occasion. The products of the green
house were brought into requisition,
the brilliantly lighted hall being dec
orated witlraatural flowers, and beau
tiful button-hole boquets of the same
for all graced an attractively arranged
refreshment stand in a box seat ina
corner of the hall.
After the carriages had gathered
up and deposited their loads of happy
humanity from all over the city,
about sixty-five couples were present.
The ball was opened with a grand
polonaise at 9 o'clock, and to delight
ful music, gallant gentlemen and
beautiful ladies joined in the mazes
of the dance, and tripped the light
fantastic toe till 12 o'cloci. After a
sumptuous supper by mine host of
the Grand Pacific, the ball again went
merrily on till the wee small hours of
Music by Gcreke's Strlug Band of
Police Judge Hensley was called
upon last Thursday to decide a point
in dispute between Cole's circus bill
posters and G. Heitkemper, the
jeweler. The right to the lumber
shed on 11th street, as bill boards is
owned by Geo. Derry. Upon this
shed several business signs appear.
The persons whose business these
signs represent, did hot see a return
in the amount demanded for a year's
privilege of the space occupied by
their signs, with the exception of Mr.
Heitkemper, who paid his money.
Upon seeing that his sign was being
coverod up, he remonstrated with
the boss of the job, but to no avail,
and soon the circus bill shone forth
in brilliant if not aesthetic splendor
where the modest business sign had
attracted passing attention. After
the case had been elucidated to his
honor, and Mr. H's. contract shown
up in court, there appears to have
been .a general enlightening as to tho
true status of affairs, and a truce was
called and a compromise effected,
which resulted in the bills being torn
from the sign and Mr. Derry footing
the expense bill.
A PleaNaat Sarpriite.
Ed. Journal: We have heard
rather strange things about the citi
zens of Humphrey, but have been
disposed to disbelieve them all, until
on the evening of the 12th inst.,
while sitting quietly by our fireside,
contemplating retiring for the night,
our 'attention was attracted by a
noise in thostreet near our dwelling,
and before we could look out to see
what was the matter, thedoor opened
and in rushed the "mob" headed by
the "Squire," as in the days of the
Wesley's and Whitefield's. Uoth
hands were full, and being taken by
surprise, we surrendered without a
struggle. They said they came to
give us a "pounding," and they did
it. They seemed to enjoy it, arid I
think it did us lots of good, for they
left many marks of their kindness,
which aro plain to be seen yet. Many
thanks, kind friends ; next time come
earlier, so as to stay longer.

A Wail Elephaat Holiday.
Big elephants and small elephants,
short elephants and long elephants have
all had a great part to play in the Circus
World but V. W. Cole una come to the
front with a Sacred Vlite Elephant or
more properly speaking a white-faced
elephant, for such is the description of
the Sacred Burmese beast that Cole im
parted to this country at an expense of
$100,000, all told. But a single elephant
be it white, blue or black, cuts a very
smair figure in Cole's colossal shows
which contains almost everything that
hai an existence or that curious humani
ty cares to see. The circus is so large
that it takes three rings and an elevated
stage to give all the performers a chance
to display their various acts and personal
accomplishments. The only fault to be
found with this truly enormous show is
that it is too big. Forty-five acts are
given at each performance. It combines
a Circus, Menagerie," Theatre, .Boiler
Skating Rink, Gallery of Wax Statuary
and a dozen other complete exhibitions
all in one. Performances are given in the
m enagerie tents of which there are two
as well as in the circus rings. A troupe
of Beduin Arabs is a principal feature
of the great combination; a Human Fly,
a lady ceiling walker, icrial bicyclists,
roller 'skaters, Roman gladiators, rival
riders, wrestlers, gymnasti, leapers and
a hundred other specialists will vie for
supremacy. A white hippopotamus, a
two horned rhinoceros and Samson, the
largest elephant ever in captivity, are
among the rare animal curiosities. Seven
sisters, with hair fully seven feet long,
are attractions to excite feminine jeal
ousy and fire the hearts of our male pop
ulation. All kinds of trained animals
are introduced and performed. One of
the most laughable features of the great
show is a learned racing pig, ridden by a
monkey jockey, who "makes nice of no
vile hold" to catch the pig by the tail
when there is a possibility of the Dar
winian Dude's losing his balance or being
"unhorsed." With such an array of nov
elties it is impossible to class Cole's
Mammoth Shows under any heading ex
cept a "White Elephant Holiday," and
the day of exhibition i n Columbus is set
for Tuesday, May 20th, at which time the
features above named will all be present
ed together with enough other material
to outrank any three shows that have

STUART. On Wednesday, April 9th,
1831, of paralysis and rheumatism, Mary
Brown, wife of Wm. J. Stuart, aged 27
years, 6 months and 2!) days.
3Irs. Stuart, with her parents, Mr. and
Mrs. Richard Brown, came to this city
in its early days. As a ;irl, as a young
lady, as a wife, she ever held tbe esteem
of those about her. Her disposition was
sweet, kind, loving and generous. She
was a consistent working Christian, a
member of tbe Episcopal couiin;mk.u.
Her death is peculiarly tad. From or
dinary good health, she became, some ten
dajs ago, instantly helpless, every
moment ready to tapplc over eternity's
brink, and unable to talk, denied the poor
privilege of bidding her loved ones a last
fond, loving farewell. She leaves three
sons, all less than four years old, a lov
ing husband, parents brothers and sister.
