Jhe communication which appeared yesterday morning's Alert, iu which the action of the county commissioners allowing the hill of Eassett & Ringer for bringing in Mr. Blum from Jandell's ranch is criticised, does injustice to both •the commissioners and Me3srs. Bussett & Kmger. It is unjust to the commission era because it accuses them of allowing &Q exorbitant bill, and unjust to Bassett & Ringerjbecause under the circumstan «e8i the charge was very moderate. The fact of the matter is, that the day was a •ery bad one, being the day following the blizzard, and that there was no road or trail to the ranch. This made the trip of forty miles a 'tough one and required a that was reliable and especially ad­ apted for such a purpose. With such a Sheriff McKechnie, who knows the country probably better than any other man in the county, was three days in reaching the ranch. On the return trip the horses were push...

"I wish Christmas would not come round so quickly," sighed a pretty young woman who eat by a fireside in a very solemn, gloomy lodging house. "So do I, I can assure you," re­ sponded the pretty young woman's husband, a tall, stalwart fellow, who was reclining lazily in an arm chair, "If you think that I enjoy Christmas day at the governor's knowing that you are here alone with the boy, you are mistaken.

He said: Lord Campbell denied hia wife's charges o! infidelity, which depended chiefly on the testimony of Lady Miles. Whatever might be said agatinst Lady Miles by the defense, it must be admitted that she was until lately Lord Colin'B friend that she had done all in her power to discourage the bringing of the action against him and that she only took Lady Colin's part when she became convinced that unjust charges were to be brought against that lady.

There are no stormy •petrols in the air at present. Ex-Secretary of State Hamilton Fish of New York and his wife have just celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of their wedding.

The New York Financial Record has compiled the railroad earnings lor the month of November, and a very good showing is made. The compilation includes reports from eighty-five roads and the aggregate shows an increase over the earnings for the same month last year of more than $2,000,000, which is equivalent to nearly 7 per cent.

STORY OF "MISS ANNA." from tbe New Orleans Times Democrat. Coffee had just been served, and the room was filled with smoke, and that genial after-glow of pleasant, reminis­ cent talk that always follows a good dinner where old friends have met, old stories told. These men had been comrades in war, had served under the same flag, held the same political opinions and suffered the same losses. It seemed pleasant now, after the lapse of years, to exchange experience from an easy chair, with the best oi cigars in one's mouth and a bottle of •old wine at one's elbow. They in joyed it keenly in their sober, mid­ dle-aged fashion, told their stories with gusto, drank their toasts with enthusiasm and listened to each other's talk with an eagerness of at­ tention and a freshness of sympathy at once as novel as it was delightful. Innumerable changes were rung upon three themes, viz, "before the war," "the war" and "since the war." We of the new generation can easily imagine the style of talk. ...
