His decease. literally fulfills the rhetorical utterance of Dr. .Jol.(on" : It eclipses the gayety of na tion.. . Mr. Sh~aw was more than ,.forty-five. years old before he began the career which brought him wealth tud honor. While tie was struggling foriing for a living as an auc tioneer and dealer in real estate, at Pough keepsie, New York, the suggestion was made to him by Its editor that he. should contribute to a local newspaper. He did so for a time, but without creating the in terest which he thought his mirth and wisdoum ought to create. His manner of treating subjects was then as afterwards when hie had become famous, with one difference only and that to all appearance a non-essential one. The reverse of this was true. however, for after Henry W. Shaw had become "Josh Billings," and his production...

Todd went out Friday to look the ground over with a view of locating the approaches of the proposed railroad from a point beyond the Marias. The route selected and which M1r.

THE RIVER PRESS. Published every Wednesday morning by the River Press Publish ing Company. GOOD Lye, Billy Mahone. WHO will weep for the mugwunmps now ? IT was not such an up-Hill business as the paragraphers tried to make us believe. It is cruel in the New York Herald to say that Logan, Sherman and Foraker did it with their oratory. ALMOST seven hundred thousand hogs were sold at the Union stock yards, Chi cago, during October. C. S. REFORM was cruelly stabbed in New York yesterday and it is believed the patient will not recover. BRADSTREET'S reports a continued im provement of business, and is rather cheerful about the prospects. THE president will now probably ap point Barnum, Gorham and Pat Kelly as the new civil service commission. OUR citizens should prepare to give En gineer Barclay a pleasant reception and make it interesting for him during his sojourn. PRESIDENT CLEVELAND voted the straight democratic ticket. This should remove the supposed cloud upon his de mocracy. THE ma...

THE PAMPAS COWBOY. LEADING CHARACTERISTICS OF THE GAUCHO OF ARGENTINA. Half Savage, Half Courtier, and as Re lentless as the Grave--aorseman ship and Skill with' the Lasso--In CivilIr.ation. [Montevideo Cor. Inter Ocean.] The gaucho (pronounced gow-cho) is the cowboy of Argentina and Urguay, a reckless dare-devil, regardless alike of God and man, peaceable when sober, but a howling savage when drunk. As brave as a lion, as active as a panther, with en durance equal to any test, faithful to his friends, but as implacable as fate to his. enemies, living the year around with no roof but the azure sky, no bed but the ground, no pillow but his saddle, and no shelter but his poncho. Lie l:,ves nothing but his horse. and the word fear is not in his vocabulary. His speech is a mixture of `panish and the Guarani, or native Irindian di.iaect; his costume is a poncho, a pair of buck skin breeches, high boots, and silver s~ urs that weigh a pound or two each. His saddle, his bridle, and his bre...
