FIDDLING BTATESMEN. How Georgia Legislators Scrape Their Way to Offoe. There are few people who k now what an i, portant part the fiddle plays in Southern politics. Of course the country at large knows how Bob Taylor, the boy Congressman from Tennessee, fiddled his way into office twQ years ago, and how he failed this time because he thought he could run on his brains rather than his bow. Certain local peo ple know how Uncle Jim Harris, fa mous for his taking ways in Fulton, snatches popular music from his fidd:e in our country contests. But there'are few men who know )low gene:al and how potent the fiddle is. Several members of the present House are expert fiddlers and fiddle their way into office. Tom Watson, the brilliant member from McDuffle, is the best fid dler in the House. He says: "I have the best and most intelligent constitency in the State, in my opinion. My opponent Was a good man and a good farmer, but was not a practiced speaker. I felt that speaking might be consider...

8HRE WD MR. SMYTHE. Sow the Old-Timer Played it on a NBW Yorker. While the Clark's Fork mines are not in the regions of eternal snow, the fali there is by no means iu.boniderable. A story is told of a tunnel run on a lead in that district to the depth of 225 +feet, which is deserving of being immortal i(ed in print. Some two years since a party of Eastern capitalists made a pur chase of the Silver King lode. 'They sent out as superintendent a dapper little chap from New York, who knew no more about mining than a Crow Indian does of geometry. The superintendent, Mr. Smythe by name, camne to Bozeman. hired a retinue o! co(ok., teamsters, etc., and went out to the rnine. It had not been develolpod to :tny extent, and after an 'inspection of the Ipr(i~Jlect shaft, Mr. Smytheý eter mi1e',I to have a tunnel run-o. the pro)p ert y. lie lninounced his intentions and..

You are all dressed-up, and have got a clean shirt on, and your shoes blacked, and I notice your pants are not raveled out so at the bottom of the legs behind. You are not in love, are you?" "Well, I should smile," said the-boy, as he looked into a small mirror on the coun `er, covered with fly specks.

OUR BARKER BUDGET. The Silver Belle "Jumped" and Held by an Armed Force. BARKER DIST., Jan. 5, 1882. Editors of the River Press: In my last letter I gave you an account of the festivities at Christmas. New Year day was similarly celebrated by a ball at Mr. Dappers, at gold Run, which was numerously atti~ded. It was pro nounced a complete success, and the sup per provided by Mr. John Wetzel has seldom been equaled and never excelled in the town. The new year was not allowed to come in without some mining claims being jumped for some supposed non-compli ance with the law. Foremost of the mines that have been jumped is the "Silver Belle," the property of Messrs. Choate & Co. It was seized by Clarke, May, Adams and two others. They now hold the mine by armed force, hav ing sentries with shotguns on the watch while the others work. This action has drawn forth strong condemnation by all right-minded citizens, not only by armed force being used; but also that no reason exists for the s...
