FLOATING FANOIES. The Abbe Gunion says that hell is paved with women's tongues. A pavement in con stant motion would be unique, even in hell. Gainsborough hats are being hissed in the New York theatres. "Take your clothes off your head, sis," is the somewhat startling re mark. A Nevada man announces that he has in vented a lying machine. If he thinks he has struck anything new he is mistake,n. We've had gas metres for a long time. An unkind word from one beloved often draws the blood from many a heart which would defy the battle-ax of hatred or the keenest edge of vindictive satire. A Philadelpqia man who owns a parrot in forms us that when his minister calls on him it is very embarrassing to have the bird eter nally exclaiming, "I'll take sugar in mine." An aged negro was showing the scars of the wounds inflicted by the lash when he was a slave. "What a picture!" exclaimed a sympathetic looker-on. "Yes," responded the colored brother, "dat's de work ob de ole masters." Qualifying a...

THE RIVER PRESS : Wednesday, January 25, 1882. JERRY COLLINS. - - - - - - - EDITOR WE publish to-day an interview with Mr. T. C. Power chiefly in reference to the im provement of the Missouri river, a subject I of vital importance to Montana and more 1 particularly to Benton-and surrounding Coun try. Some action should be taken at once to impress upon Delegate Maginnis the necessi ty of working for a liberal appropriation'for the Upper Missouri. The initial steps in the 1 movement should be taken at Benton and we hope our people will be equal to the emergency. If there is one spark of life re maining in the Benton Board of 'Trade a meeting should be called at once to inaugu rate a movement in favor of an appropria tion for the upper river. If the Board of Trade is beyond all hope of resurrection let a. meeting of the citizens be called for this pur pose. The matter is of too great importance to neglect. Helena and other towns of the Territory should do likewise as they are in terest...

THE . STHETIO KISS.. The youth sat on the parlor lounge When all had gone to bed, Upon his breast a maiden fair Pillowed her frizzled head. The way he called her duck and dove Was mighty hard to beat; He filled her ear with foolishness, Her mou th with gumdrops sweet. The old man peeped within the door, And muttered in his beard: "That, ere young tooster spoons the worst Of all I ever heered. "He burns my coal and wastes my gas; His oheek is quite colossal; I'll fix that gay and festive youth, Or I'm a darned old fossiL" Said youth to maiden, "Have you heard Of the aesthetic kiss 1 They say it is to utter sweet, And is the height of bliss." "Du tell,.' the artless maiden cried. "Dear Charley will you show It to me, for, indeed, I am So anxious it to know." "Well, then, I must not grab your waist, Your lips must not be smacked; According to the aesthetes, that Is not the way to act. "But, slowly and deilberate, Must place one finger, so, Ben, ath your dainty little chin." The maiden ...

WHY LINCOLN WAS KILLED. A Hitherto Unpablished Chapter in American History. New York Truth. Among the chosen friends of John Wilkes Booth's boyhood was a dashing, chivalrous young man by the name of John Y. Beal, whose home was in the beautiful Shenandoah valley, not far from Winchester. When the war broke out Beal, who was a fanatical se cessionist, went to Canada, and from there joined a party of Southerners engaged in carrying on an irregular kind of warfare on the northern lakes against the Union. Their chief object was to release Confederate pris oners of war quartered on Johnson's Island, near Sandusky, 0., but they also set fire to ships and public buildings, and even took measures to send infected clothing into the North tar the purpose of spreading the pesti lence. Finally a number of them were cap tured, and the rest disappeared. Among the unfortunate who fell into the hands of the enraged Northerners was young Beal. He was brought before a court martial and con victed of ...

THE LAW. The tide of Love swells in me with such force It sweeps away all hate and all di-trust, As eddying straws and particles of dust Are lost by some swift riyer in its course. So much 1 love my friends. my life, my art, Each shadow flies-the liiht dispels the gloom; Lore is so fair I find I have no room For anything less worthy in my heart, Loi e is a gem which we can cultivate To grace and perfume sweeter than the rose; Or leave neglected, while our heart-soil grows Rank with that vile and poison thistle-hate. Love is a joyous thrush, that we can teach To sing sweet lute-like songs which all may hear; Or we can silence him, and tune the ear To caw of crows, or to the vulture's screech. Love is a feast; and if the guests divide With all who pass. tho' thousands swell the van, There shall be food and drink for every man The loaves and fishes will be multiplied. Love is the guide. I look to hights above, So beautiful, so very far away; Yes. I shall tread their sunlit peaks some d...

FLOATING FANOIES. The man with the biggest watch chain usually have a silver watch at the end of it. Chicago girls never find it hard to elope. They make rope-ladders out of their shoe Etrings.

"How many carriages"shall you "want to haul the grief ?" is.the way the undertaker puts it in Deadwood. The buggy-top bonnets should never be worn at theatres until they are made so that the tops can be turned down.

His harangues are of the "too utterly utter" order. JUDGE PORTER'S Closing argument in the Guiteau case was a stinging, scathingieddress. The assassin fairly writhed under the torture inflicted. Arii-MoMnoN meetings are being held in various eastern cities. The people are in dead earnest this time about rooting out "the twin relic" whether Congress is or not.

THE SAME DEAR HAND. The bells ring out a happy sound, The earth is msntled o'er With white, It is the merry Chrjstmas night, And love and mirth and joy abound. And here sit you and here sit I; I should be happiest in the land, For, oh, I hold the same dear hand I've held for many a year gone by ! It is not withered up with care, It is as fresh and fair to see, As sweet to hold and dear to me, As when with chimes upon the air, On Christmas nights of years ago, I held the same dear little thing And felt its soft caresses bring Th. flushes to my throbbing brow. Ah, we were born to never part! This little hand I hold to-night And I; so with a strange delight I press it to my beating heart, And in the midnight's solemn hush I bless the little hand I hold. In broken whispers be it told, It is the old-time bobtail flush.

GUITEAU GUILTY I! The Jury Come to This Conclusion in Six Minutes. Closing Scenes of the Great Trial-The Con clusion of Judge Porter's Scathing Address. WrASHINGTON, January 25.-As usual, Guiteau oppened the proceedings of the Court by announcing : "My sister has been doing some silly talk at Chicago. She means well, but she is no lawyer." Judge Porter immediately resumed his ar gument. Admonished by the falling snow and the severity of the weather, from which he had suffered, and from which doubtless the Jury had also suffered, he felt it neces sary to vary from his original intention, and to trust to the intelligence and honor of the jury to supply his defence. He would not, therefor, linger over the dry details of evi dence, feeling it imperatively necessary that the case should be brought to a conclusion as soon as possible. He would simply touch upon a few of the salient points of the evi dence. "John W. Guiteau," said Porter, "I be lieve to be an honorable man. He came here re...

A Miner Tackles the Color Question. GOLD RuN, Feb. 1, 1882. Editors of the River Press : I have observed with pleasure your manly stand concerning the admission of colored children to your public sch&ols, and, although I am a stranger to you, cannot refrain from expressing the satisfaction which I am sure all lovers of right. humanity and fair-play must feel concerning the position you have taken on the subject. The Hon. Supt. of Public Instructions and the Attorney General in expressing their opinion take refuge behind the statute of Montana. This seems to me to be an evasion. Questions of right and humanity are above questions of technical law. Be sides these gentlemen must know, I think, the feeling and the terms under which that law was enacted. It would be beyond the range of possibility to find a legislature now in Montana that would enact a law like that. Not only is the statute a violation of the Con stitution- plainly so in my opinion, though I am no authority-but is ev...

MY BRIDE THAT IS TO BE. O soul of mine, look out and see My bride, my bride that is to be! .Eeach oat with mad, impatient hands And draw aside futurity As one might draw a veil aside; And so unveil her where she stands, Madonna-like and gloriflod The Queen of undiscovered lands Of love, to where she beckons me My bride, my bride that is to be. The shadow of a willow tree That waves on a garden wall In summer time may never fall In attitude as gracefully As my fair bride that is to be; Nor ever Autumn's leaves of brown As lightly flutter to the lawn As fall her fairy feet upon The path of love she loiters down. O'er drops of dew she walks, and yet Not one may stain her sandal wet; And she might dance upon the way, Nor crush a single drop to spray, So airy-like she seems to me My bride, my bride that is to be. I know not if her eyes are light As summer skies, or dark as night I only know that they are dim With mystery. In vain I peer To make their hidden meaning clear, While o er thei...
