A shooting epidemic scums Id have
triketl possession of the people of Gun
iiison county. Gumiiaon load oil'ant
AV.IS quickly -followed liy llttby , trwii
uml Uiesk'd Untie , and now I'itkii
coinus to the front. Tliu particular
of u shooting alliiir wln'cli took placi
thcro recentlytwcfo luurncd yestcrdaj
from pailies jnst arrived from that
placu , and weio as follows'
It Huums that n man named Charley
Uriggs has hccn running a danco-lisill
in 1'itkin for aomo timu. The place
Jms been the terror of all good citi
zens of the town , nH it waa made n
rendezvous for the very worst charac
ters in town. Men liavo been in
veigled into the place and , after getting -
ting tilled with liquor , have been
robbed and beaten almost to death ,
after which the proprietor would
pitch them out doora.
15etween2 and 3 o'clock last Sunday
morning : i miner named Walter Kelly ,
an old-timer in the Snn Juan country ,
entered the hall. He hul in his pos-
.session at the time about ten tlullurj
in cash and one hundred and forty del-
lars in chocks. An hour or two later
lie was sot upon by one "Tex" and
beaten. After this the proprietor ,
Hriggs , took a hand in and al.so gave
him a beating , and then throw him out
doors minus his cash , checks and coat.
-Kelly was cut and bruised in a most
brutal manner.
In the morning Kelly sought Mar
shal F. T. Nisluy and requested his as
sistance in recovering thu money and
coat. The Marshal wont with him to
the ( Uuico hall and saw Briggs , but the
latter denied knowing anything about
Kelly or Ilia atlaira. Since the shoot
ing , however , a woman named Addio
Uurnett , who has been living with
liriggs , says she saw "Tex" attack
Kelly first and then Briggs picked tip
the roa t and. wont through the pock
ets , after which ho pitched Kelly out
of doora and his coat after him.
Kelly appeared on the streets on
Sunday with his face and body cut
and bruised in a most shocking man
ner. A lur.o number of minors came
to town , and as many of them were
friends of Kelly they determined to
assist him in the recovery of his prop
erty. A party of them wont to the
dance hall about ! ) o'clock Sunday
night and demanded , that Briggs pro
duce the checks or refund tlio amount
in money. This ho refused to do and
some angry u'ords followed. At this
-Urigg tried to thaw his gun , when
two shots were lircd at him. One of
these entered the arm near the
shoulder and passed out at the back
near the point of the shoulder blade.
The other struck him in the abdomen
and , passing through , lodged just un
der the skin near the back-bone.
After being shot ho escaped through
the rear door , and climbed the moun
tain to Armstrong gulch , a distance
of seven miles , where ho took refuge
in the cabin of a miner named Ike
Barrett.
Barrett at once started to town to
notify the oflicors and summon a phy
sician. Dr. Vance , the Mayor of tlio
town attended the wounded man , and
extracted the ball from his back , but
expressed the opinion that ho could
not live. Ho was alive , however ,
when parties left there yesterday
morning , though his death was looked
for at any moment.
AH soon as the shots were heard a
crowd numbering fully two hundred
or more quickly gathered , and the
olliccrs wore unable to determine how
largo the original party was or just
who were in it.
After Briggs escaped the crowd sot
fire to the building , but the flames
were extinguished by the Marshal. A
second attempt was made by tlio imb ,
and this time , the ofliccrs being held
back by the crowd , the place was soon
reduced to a heap of ashes.
Briggs is given a very hard name by
residents of the town , and , while all
regret the act of lawlessness that took
place , none will bo sorry that both
Briggi and his place have met the fate
they so long and so justly merited.
Later reports from Pitkin state that
the mob was led by a prominent law
yer , politician and editor ; and that
the liquor was removed from the
< laneo hall before the building was
tired , and afterwards drunk by the
mob. When they became intoxicated
threats were made against the oflico of
another editor , and also against the
person of a prominent attorney. These
latter being notified , made prepara
tions to repel any attack that might
bo made , but nothing was done by the
mob. Special police wore sworn in
yesterday , as it is thought there may
be trouble yet.
It is now said that the identity of
the men who shot Briggs is doJinitoly
known , and , as soon as the hitter's
dying statement can bo taken , the
party will bo placed under arrest.
What the outcome will be remains to
bo seen.
Western Miuioal Criticism.
Thu editor of a mining camp news
paper went to Denver to hear Emma
Abbot sing , and in a lengthy review
of the opera. Bays : "as a singer she
can just wallop the hose oit anything
that over wagged a jaw on the boards.
From her clear , bird-like upper notes
oho would counter away down on the
baaa racket and then cushion back tea
a sort of 'spiritual treble which made
every man in the audience imagine
every hair on his head was the golden
airing of n celestial hard over which
angelic fingers wenrfswceping in the
inspiring old tune of 'Sally put the
kettle on. ' Hero she would rest
awhile , trilling like an enchanted bird ,
and thenhop in among the upper notes
again with a git-up-and-git vivacity
that jingled the glass pendants on the
chandeliers and elicited a whoop of
pleasure- from every galoot in the mob.
Jn the last act she inado a neat play
mid worked in that famous kiss of
hers on Castle. Ho had her in his
arms , witli her head lying on Ida
shoulder and her eyes shooting rod-hot
etroaks of galvanized love right into
his. All at once her lips began to
twitch coaxmglyandgot into position ,
and when ho tumbled to her racket
ho drawcd her up easy like , shut his
eyes , and then her ripu , luscious lips
glued themselves to his and a thrill of
pleasure nabbed hold of him and
shook him till the audience could al
most Jiciir his toe-nails grind agaiiint
his boots. Then oho shut her eyes
and pushed harder mid oh , Molu.v
Hoses ! the amack that followed
started the stitching in every masct
line heart in thu house. She' *
thoroughbred right from the star
and the fellow takes in her kisses i
moro to bo omicdthan the haughties
monarch that over squatted down o
a golden-plated throne.1'
John Muir nm nu Eccentric Student
Oconomo ecO > IO t/oenl.
Twenty years ago there were bii
few students at the University of Wi
cousin. But among those now stu
dents were many \\holmvo since mad
a name in their various lines of work
Among them came a queer genius
now Violin Muir , the naturalist
Where ho c.uno from I do not know
Ho was of Scotch pat outage , .studious
industriaus , inclined to have but fev
companions , yet social ; was a lover o
quiet fun and long rambles in tin
country , and , like many ol licit } wh <
had their way to make , cooked hi
frugal meals in his room. In all thcsi
things , ho was not singular ; his re
miirkablo trait was Ins love for praeti
cal mechanics and invention.
lie seemed to iiued few tools ; at
axe , saw , jack-knife and gimlet wen
his chief weapons , while almos
anything served as mater al. Ilii
clock served as a centre about whicl
several of his most interesting ma
chines clustered. This waa in tin
fjrin of u hcythu and snath , huiiL' it
an old , gnarled burr-oak grub , when
Father Time is supposed to have lofl
it. The scythe WHS split lengthwise
and in the opening thus formed , WAI
a trnin of wheels constituting tin
works. The motor was a heavy stone
concealed under the roots and moss
from which the clock rose on tin
table. The year , month , day , hour
minute and second were indicated bj
index arrows on the various papei
dials. The pendulum was also an ar
row with a heavy copper point.
His study-desk was provided with r
spring trap-door , under which movct
a rack upon which his books wore sei
up separately on their backs. Ho ar <
ranged his study hours for each les
3011 , and connected the machinery o
liis desk to the clock , so that at tin
appointed moment the trap dooi
opened , dropped the book into iti
rack , moved this along , threw up tin
next book and closed the trap undci
It. His bed was a machine utterly
destructive to the "little more sloop'
of the sluggard. It was hung on ;
[ ttvot and supported at such a hei hl
; hat when turned up it stood nearlj
perpendicularly , foot down. The fool
ivaa held up by a lover ,
Beside the bed was tlio lamp stand ,
on which the fluid lump , then in use ,
was placed at night. To this bed the
clock was connected and then set foi
ising. In the morning the machine
; ook oft" Utr > extinguisher , struck a
natch , lighted the Imnp , and then
withdrew the lovar , letting the bed
down and bringing its occupant out
m his feet. Ihuv.c known him t < i
satisfy the curiosity of visitors by
jutting them into the bed wrong end
.o . , and so bring thorn out head down.
.n summer time lie connected this
icd to the east winuow by a linen
lircad. A sun-glass was so adjusted
as to burn oil' this thread when thn
sun came to the right position.
Judge Griswold and myself roomed

ic > ) a bit of fun , in . .particular , with
lis 'loafor chair. " As soon as the
lupposcd loafer , but real victim ,
caned back , he pressed a concealed
spring , which fired an old pistol , di
rectly under the seat. The wonder
ful leaps of the victims were worth
seeing. Nor did John forget the la
dies , who sometimes came to see his
nachincs. Out of a riisin ,
a huge , vicious-looking black
pidcr was made , which
vns so suspended as to drop
ust before the fair visitor when she
vaa well seated in his best chair. It
vas delicious to hoar them scream.
John Muir taught school near Madi
son one winter , where lih clock built
his tire for him every morning. It
only remains to say tlmt he now has
the reputation of knowing moro of
YoHuinitu Valley and the Nevada
mountains than any other man living.
Electricity and Wire Foiicev
Hon. C. F. Cliirkson ; From reading
your valuable paper I see that a now
dilliculty has arisen in the use of
wire for fencing purposes. It appears
that many cattle in dili'uront portions
of the State have been killed by light
ning , and that in numerous instances
the wire fence seems to bo to blame.
There can be no doubt that a discharge
of lightening in the neighborhood of
a wire fence would frequently- result
in at least a portion of the discharge
following the fence wire , and in Homo
cases it might follow it u great distance
produce serious efl'ectH on a heid of
cattle-near the fence. I see that it
has boon nlruady suggested as a remedy
to run a wire-frequently from the wires
to the earth. If properly done , this
would remedy the evil. But the fact
is that few people have a nrojmr notion
of what a "ground wire is in an elco
trical Hcnsc. Such a wire simply run
into dry earth a few inches would
seldom answer. A good "ground wire"
should go to permanently moist earth
and then have considerable surface ,
moro than that of the wire in contact
with earth. Few people , I take it ,
would bo likely to take such pains. 1
have a suggestion which would in al
most all cases remedy the matter.
Let an iron fencepost be used instead
of a wooden one , say , every one or
two hundred yards. Iron fence-posts
can now.be had , I think , in the mar
ket. Such a .post should go down
twenty inches or two feet in the earth.
It will present probably A square foot
of surface to the earth , and in most
cases would make a good "ground. "
I will say that in u very dry time even
such a post would carry away every
diachargo of lightening , but , , fortu
nately thunder storms are not com
mon in a dry time. I do not think a
violent ] discharge would pass many
such posts , and it scorns to mo to
present the most practicable solution
of the dilliculty. These iron posts
should b < used especially in wet
places , and near the stock-yards where
the field fence joins the stock-yard
fence several should be placed and
driven down well into the ground.
Arery respectfully yours ,
MACOMIIKU.

New York Spcclitto thoOlolic-Dcinocrftt ,
Mis. ( 'phalli , widow of 1'rof. Thoa
I'pham , of Howdoin college , came t
this city to live about four years ago
She was then well advanced in years
and had become a convert to tin
doctiino of spiritualism. Atnoiij
persons of thu same faith witi
whom she bccamo acquainted was
Miss Mary A. Ward , an initnarriet
woman , of middle-ago , whose fathei
nt that time was a physician , practic
ing in Newark , N. J , Miss Ware
won Mrs. Upluim's confidence , am
learned that the old lady was ownct
of bank stocks worth about $1-1,000.
In April , 1878 , she introduced toMrs.
Upham the llov. John A. Lansing , a
spiritualist brother , who had been
a Methodist cloriryman in Massa
chusetts. Mrs. Uphiim was much im
pressed by the conversation and bear
ing of the minister , and her admira
tion of him was increased by tht
praino of Miss Ward. Mr. Lansing
Lold Mrs. Upham that ho was inter
ested in the Jacques Cologne Manu
facturing company and was making a
31 eat deal of moneyout of it , although
lie had not allowed his name to be
published in connection with the
business. He said ho hiid in
vested the property of many
widows and orphans in the bus'Messso '
Lhat they are able to realize handsome
sums. At this suggestion Mrs. Up-
mm gave Lansing In trust the § 14-
JOO in bank stocks which she owned.
She took in exchange a receipt signed
liy both Miss Ward and Mr. Lansing ,
she was promised that she would re
ceive an annual profit of 1C
per cent , to bo paid monthly.
For several months she re
ceived the installments promised ;
then she was told that there had been
an unexpected failure ol the concern
and payments ceased , Mrs. Upham
mi ployed a man named Williams to
look after her interests , but Williams
did nothing for her. She trusted to
the power of spiritualism for many
months , but her lost money did not
return. It was not until
about six weeks ago that she
made a stop in the right direction by
consulting a reputable lawyer , Her
counsel immediately secured the as
sistance of District Attorney Kollins
and Police Inspector Byrnes. Both
officials interested themselves in the
case. The district attorney secured
: he indictment of Lansing and Miss
Ward , and gave the inspector warrants
'or their arrest. Inspector Byrnes
earned that Miss Ward had been
reaching at Ocean Grove .during the
summer , and that she had afterward
Cone to the homo of her father at
\Vaverly , N. J. He also learned
hat Latisiiu. was preaching in
Srookline , Mass. Ho procured
'rom Governor Cornell the
necessary requisition papers early in
; ho present week , and on Wednesday
10 took measures to arrest both swind-
ers. Detective llichard O'Connor
vas sent to Broodlino and Detective
lichard Fields was sent to Waverly.
Selective Fields arrested Miss WarJ
at her father's house on Thursday ,
and brought her to this city the same
wening. She was locked up at po-
ice headquarters all night. To-day
she was taken before the district at-
orney and hold for trial. A Pearl
itreet merchant became her bondsman
n $25,000. Before she left the dis-
, rict attorney's oOice the papeis in a
civil suit for 825,000 were served on
icr by Mrs. Upham's counsel. Detec-
ivo O'Connor returned from Brookline
to-night , bringing Lansing with him.
lie minister arrived at police head
quarters about 10 o'clock ' , and was
ocked up. Ho will be taken to the
district attorney's oflico to-morrow.
The following is a portion of the Ict-
er which Lansing wrote to Mrs. ( Jp-
mm in January , 187 ! ) , in answer to
icr request for the return of her
jonds.
"I cannot meet with your demands
o-night. The plans and arrango-
ncnts were all made in God and I can
) idy move as He commands. Can you
lot follow the word of God as it came
o you first ? You know the word to
jo of God now as you did then follow
t as you did then. The pape n are
all drawn in God , and are at his dis-
losal. Yours in Christ Jesus the
jord God. Amen.

An Expensive Magazine-

"Would you like to buy that Har-
ler's Magazine ? " asked the soft-voiced
ind timid peanut on the east bound
Jnion Pacific train the other day to a
niddlc-aged passenger who was look-
ngoverthoOctoborllarper'H and read-
ng Judge Goodwin's article on the
\Ionnon \ situation.
"No , " said the middlo-aged party.
'It is my own magazine and therefoio
do not care to buy it. "
"Excuse mo , " said the poor , little
Tightened jmanuttcr , while the tears
ame into his eyes. "I fear you want
o client a poor orphan boy out of his

mvo the magazine back again. Ah ,
ir , you would not rob mo of my
oods. "
"No , " said the stern stranger. "I
, o not wish to rob you of your book ,
ny boy , but I bought thin on the Utah
Northern road and paid for it. When
wont into the eating house forbreak-
ast , the train butcher took it out of
ny seat and sold it to ire oguin in the
ftornoon.
"I was in the middle of an article

turned down the leaf and left it
again in my seat. I had to buy it
mco more. Now the magazine has

Then the 'nirt ' mul grieved orplmi
boy went to ( ho sleeping-car conduct o' '

And it was too.
