CASUAL JOTTINGS. [IBY FLYAWAY.] As our irrigation channels are now named in honor of our prominent local citizens, statesmen, orators, fighting nmen etc., e.g. the Teese, Morrissoy, Wilson, and Hogan channels, it has been suggested that a name be found for our new, main . diain ; and as Flyaway has taken such a keen interest in it since the day' the foundation' stdne was laid, through all its vicissitudes, until it has now reached its present " mammoth and majestic" proportions, it would surely be. only an act of courtesy and recogni tion. to denominate it the Flyaway channel. The editor says Flowaway would be a more appropriate name;. but then he is a practical joker.

" But not for all the gold of Ophir-not for the richest ore ever dug from the bowels of the earth, would I care to renew my experiences there." "Too much risk? Too little water?' I asked in a tentative way, for I had heard I enough about the Amargosa country to know that the course of tile prospector there is attended with peril sunlicient to deter the hardiest.

What I am speaking of is worse than all that. Tile Anargosa recalls reminiscences which make my soul creep with horror when I think of them-reminiscences so strange, and, I was going; to say, devilish in their character, that neither you nor anybody else would credit them, if I told you of them.

It was formerly customary to t retain in most of the Courts of Europe a fool, jester, or a buffoon, who, by his puns, pleasantries, and even impertinencies, t might serve to amuse tile prince and his principal courtiers. Nicholas III., Marquis of d'Este and Ferrara, had at his court a fool named Coneelli, who made himself very famous by his facetious Ihmours. This t mauster in buffoonery was particularly artful t in making wagers.

"Thou art a blockhead," answered the Marquis, "and quite ignorant of what lpases in this city, for...
