A Blow lit the Lotteries. 6 For a long period the United States mftila hare been used to transmit the circu lars of lotteries and to carry to the managers the monej of their victims, and no deter mined effort was made to prevent it. In con sequence of the many complaints which have of late been made, however, the postmaster at New York issued an order that no box should be rented to a lottery agent. This roused the ire ot the lottery men and they proceeded to Washington, headed by J. M. Pattee, ot infamous notriety in Omaha and the northwest, and made complaint to the postmast *r general. The outcome of it was that Congress took the matter in hand and the result is a law which says, "It shall not be lawlul to convey by mail, nor deposit in a postofflce to be sent by mail, any letters or circulars concerning lotteries, so-called'gift ooncerts, or other similar enterprises offering prizes or concerning schemes dev...

Soon two men with blackened iacea appeared at the door, and she mused to open the screen door. One of the men im mediately broke through the wire netting, followed by his companion. The girl ran to the dining-room, seized a double-barreled shot gun, which she found unloaded, but with bravery worthy of a Custer, rushed back to the parlor with the muzzle in herf hands and struck the foremost villain a pow erful blow over the h-ad, felling him to the floor. His companion at once threw sulphur ic acid in the brave girl's face, as she aimed a blow at him, which missed its mark.
