TIlE EDITOR'S WORK. A Word for the Labors of Those Who Make Other len Famous. [Edward Eggleston in the Century.] I remember to have read that, many years age, Wendell Phillips, riding to town where he was to lecture, was surprised to find that the farmer in whose vehicle he travelled be lieved that Mr. Greeley, the beloved editor of the Weekly Tribune, wrote all that was in it. When Mr. Phillips had explained to him that many hands were needed to make a great pa per, the man satd : "Well, I s'pose that's so; but the farmers' club articles-them's old Horace all over !" A journal is an epic with but one hero, in the mind of the man who does not know with what voracity a great news paper or magazine eats up human lives and sawllows the reputations and tal ents of able men in all departments, of writ ing and management. All the labor, all the skillpof literary judgment and business con duct, are carried up to the credit of the edi torial head by some people, and they' will even persist ...

FLOATING FANOIES. .. The lovely maiden now is sick at heart, She languishes in misery and pain; No burst of music m kes her spirits start, On every pleasure looks she with didain, Because the air of summer gay doth smack, And its too hot for her to wear her Christmas seal skin sacque. A modest man feels his superiority; a proud man makes others feel it. Men often judge the person but not the cause, which ic not justice, but malice. What we charitably forgive will be recom pensed as well as what we charitably give. Women are not cruel by nature. We nev er heard of one thoughtless enough to step on a mouse. Our chief want in life is somebody who shall make us do what we can. This is the service of a~friend. There are a great many excellent stoves in the market; but there is no base burner like mother's slipper. If yu should have what you really de serve-no more, no less-would you be as happy as you are now ? The oldest inhabitant is generally a man; not because he is given to lying, b...

A FRONTIER RACD. How a $95,000 Gold Dust Purse was Won at the First Denver Race Track. [Denver Trihune.] One early May morning in 1860 three trav el-stainee and weary looking objects made their way into the frontier settlement of Denver from the old Salt Lake trail. Two men seated upon the back of one horse, in Mexican style, was not an uuusual sight in those days ; but there was a something about this trio which had the air of the extraordi nary or mysterious. The news of the strangs arrival spread from cabin to cabin in a few minutes; and when the party halted at the Elephant corral a large crowd of people were already waiting to speak them wel come. The strangers were attired in full buckskin suits and armed to the teeth ; their horse, a seemingly spirited bay, was attenua ted and hoof-worn; his hide was covered with streaks of dry foam and alkali mud, and his back was scarified from the constant carrying.of the saddle. He was a pitiable sight as he tottered into the stall allott...

A SPANISH LEGEND. There is a legend, shrined midst the dust of years, That soft o'er-hangs an anci-rnt Spanish town. Of how, when Arragon was wrought with fears Of slavery beneath a Moorish crown, There came a smiling woman to the square, Where cowards knelt before cathedral door, Who, quick uplifting arm that wa" as fair As fairest jewel from the Kholapore, Thus to the kneeling cravens, smiling, said; "Men of Arragon. what fear ye, the while The sun bears no foul stain of Moorish red t No day is lost that sees our sun-god smile!" So when night, with gentle step drew nigh, To kiss the Guadalquiver's sapphire wave, A legion did the Moorish host defy; A bright-eyed woman's smile had made men brave. Gone is that ancient town upon the Spanish main, And bright no more may flash the Paynim spear: But woman's smile wins all the world again, And holds it all within a woman's tear. "FOR BETTER, FOR WORSE." "He is the worst of all characters for a husband-an idle man-Hattie, and I fear he add...

SHE CHANGED THE A"ACKS. Heartless Cheating as Cards Praetlsed by a Mischievous Girl. Some of the old Saints that can't hug the young girls of Zion in balls, and have abol ished round dances in consequence, have now invented a new kind of pedro which gives them more of a chance. They start card p~rties at the evening socials and when ever anybody catches anybody elses pedro, the party winning has a right to kiss the other five times. The game is played with an equal division of the sexes and it is rare fun for the old elders of Israel. The other evening old Bishop - fixed up a pack of cards with nine pedros and started a game right in among some of the prettiest girls of the Ward. It happened, however, that the girls anticipated his little game and had a pack all ready without any pedros in. They rung in the cold deck on the old squesix and start ed the game. The old fellow made some big bids expecting to capture some pedroes and got set back on the board every time, All this time th...

(CONTINTmUED FROM IRST PAGE.j down in the very prime of his manhood and in the midst of I)s labors. Colonel Clendenin was well known to all old-time truntiersmen in northern Montana ana along the upper Missouri river for fifteen years His experience in those years is a a story ot the tuials', hardships and priva tions of frontier life. Always brave, self reliant, enterprising and persevering, I doubt if anyone has done more to secure the fron tier from the remorseless grip of the savage and prepare it for settlement and civilization. His enterprises and labors all tended to the benefit of the community. His companions in frontier life at Camp Cook, the mouth of the Musselshell, Carroll, Cow Island, Benton and other points along the frontier all delight in reminiscences of his bravery, self-sacrifice and true grit. In the last two years 1 have had close personal and business relations with Colonel Ulenden in and learned to admire and respect his many qualities of heart and mind. I al...

MISOELLAEOUS. The pall-bearers at the funeral of the late Clarkson N. Potter were his seven brothers, who laid his coffin into the grave and cover ea it with earth with their own hands. Rev. George C. Miln, pastor of Unity Church, Chicago,. formerly presided over by Rev. Dr. Collyer, announced from the pulpit that he had abandoned his belief in the Deity and in the immortality of man. Consterna tion among the congregation resulted. In England a boy had the small-pox the other week, no doctor was called in, but an elder of the sect the father belonging to, at several times laid his hand on the boys head. "Laying on of hands" did not succeed, the boy died, and the father was committed to jail, charged with manslaughter. That is how England deals with "cranks." One of the male opponents of the Gaines borough hat, who rushed into print in a New York paper denouncing that article, has stirred up a foeman worthy of his steel in the same paper. She admits that the hat has a tendency to obs...

But--eems to me--a valentine Id nicer when you do not say The same old things that every one Keeps saying, in the same old way. And I asked Jane, the other night, What grown-up people write about; She would not answer me at first, Bat laughed till I began to pout. That stopped her, for she saw I meant The question (and she will not tease), "Why-love." she said, "and shining eyes, A kiss, soft hair-just what they please." It can't be hard, if that is all, So I'll begin by saying this: "To my dear lady beautiful, I u-nd a valentine and kiss, The valentine, because she has The loveliest hair and gentlest eyes; The kiss, because I love her more Than any one beneath the skies; Because she is the kindest, best, The sweetest lady ever known; And every year I'll say the same, The very same, to her alone !"

FLOATING FANOIES. Life is full of bitter lt-sions, the simplest of which is tha. one man's fall makes forty men laugh. A young lady who was squeezed between two freight cars says it felt just like trying on a new pair of corsets. Tell your children that they are the worst you ever saw, and they will no doubt grow up in the way they should not go. Falsehood, like poison, will generally be rejected when administered alone; when blended with wholesome ingredients may be swallowed unperceived. "Think I'd live in that building !" exclaim ed the lady who ran a boarding house. "Not a bit of it ! Why, all the "oors fasten with bolts.. There isn't a keyhole in the building." Dubuque and Davenport are among the few Western cities containing more women than men, and the Omaha Republican says that's why they spell them with a big, big D.

FARMING FACT3S. What a Traveler Thinks of Our Agricultural Resources. The Necesiity of Legal Enactments for for thh Protection and Encouragement of the Farmer. FORT BENTON, Feb. 27, 1882. Editors of the River Press : Having traveled over a large portion of your Territory during the last two years, and having paid special attention to its soil, cli mat: and productions, I will give your read ets my opinion of its capabilities. Long before the soil had been disturbed by a plough, where now are the great wheat fields of Dakota, I had made myself familiar with the country from the mouth of the Bois des Sioux at Breckenridge to Winnipeg, in the British dominions; and from the Red River to the Missouri, where Bismarck now stands, and have since my first visit repeated ly traveled over the same sections and noted the many the chang, as-almost incredible to oLe who has not seen them with his own eyes. Twelve years ago no one believed that any of the lands be-tweep the valley of the Red rive...
