chicken, and her infant child crawling up
to it turned it over, burning itself in a

for about twenty-four hours when death
came to its relief. The baby was only

A Robbery oW Capture.
Mr. Stuart has afrdom in the rear of
the Rancho Saloon, *JAi t*etk or two ago,
aOme one stole hn out of hi*
pants pocket while asleep. Saturday
night a thief gained access to the saloon
through a window, and thence to Stuart’s
room and stole hie sa^fHe bags containing
his clothing. He di&ftiot discover his
loss until he was takifig-a bath Sunday
morning, and sent negro boy to his
room for his clean dothes. The result
was, he had to re-robe himself in his
soiled linen, r.nd we are very much
afraid lie used a few cuss words, which
would have been quite appropriate under
such aggravating circumstances. After
breakfast he got track of the light-fin-
gered gentleman, who proved to be a
young man named Jack Sullivan, a boar-
der at the Wheeler House. He dropped
in at that house just as Sullivan was
mounting a horse, as he reported, to join
some herders not far from the city. Sul-
livan called out to Mrs. Wheeler, “Please
hand me those saddle bags I left here this
morning.” Mrs. Wheeler handed them
to him. This was a glorious moment for
Stuart, who recognized his property, and
as the young culprit was about slinging
them over his saddle, Sturat grabbed him
by the thorax, accompanied with a gen-
tle reminder that he was his meat. Sul-
livan now meditates in the cooler.
A Charge and a Capture.
About 10 o’clock Sunday night, the
game in the room adjoining the Long
Branch saloon was suddenly disturbed by
the appearance on the scene of an elderly
woman, with arms raised, and who ex-
claimed excitedly, “There he is,” and she
made a rush for Cowan, who was sitting
in the corner quietly looking on. Dick
took in the situation at a glance, and
broke for the back door and down the al-
ley at 2 140, the old lady, her husband and
daughter closely in the rear. Dick was
outdistancing his pursuers when some-
body headed him off, near Austin eve-
nue, and the triune commenced a general
assault. Dick warded them off as best
he could until policeman Daniels got to
the scene of affray, and put a stop to hos-
As near as we could learn the cause of
all this excitement grew out of a report
that had come to the ears of the mother,
that Cowan had made ome unproper re-
mark about the daughter.
The parties were all brought before the
Mayor this (Monday) morning. The old
lady (Mrs. Johnson) and Dick were fined
each $5 and costs—the father and dau jh-
ter disenarge i.
Our friend M. B. Tallant, of the gro-
cery house of Clark & Tallant, left this
(Monday) noon for Michigan, to spend a
few weeks with his mother. Mr. Tallant
is one of our most careful and reliable
business men, and is said to be a promi-
nent member of a secret society, in exis-
tence m this city, having for its object
the promoting ol the happiness of those
whose lives are devoted to single bless-
edness. We are not positive, but circum-
stances make us surmise Mr. Tallant is
“sweet” with a pretty maiden back in
Michigan, and we shouldn’t be surprised
if the club lost a valuable member. Scott
“l ove rules the court, the camp, the grove,
And men below and saints above :
For love is Heaven and Heaven is love,”
And the most devoted business men are
liable to yield to the tender passion. We
wish Mr. Tallant a pleasant visit.
Owing to want of general notice. Pro-
fessor Hurley did not have a very large
house Saturday night. He did not de-
liver n set lecture, although he made a
few general remarks, which were very
interesting, and commanded dose atten-
tion. His phrenological examinations
were generally remarkably accurate.
Prof. Dunbar's psychological experi-
ments were amusing and instructive, and
showed he had remarkable control over
tne mind of his subject.
The Lecture To-Night.
Prof. W. C. Hurley will deliver a lec-
ture to-night on Phrenology and the
science of man, followed with public de-
lineations of character while blindfolded.
Prof. Hurley has been in the lecture field
in this State for twjnty years, and is recog-
nized as one of the best Phrenologists in
the country. Wherever known he is al-
ways greeted with full houses. Our fel-
low citizen Sam. Cook, took lessons of
him as long ago as sixteen years. He
has mane several remarkable discove-
ries which enables him to describe fea-
tures from the temperaments by simply
placing his hand upon the head when
closely blindfolded. At the dose of the
lecture Prof. Dunbar will give some in-
teresting illustrations ol the power of
mind over mind. He J* In excellent

in Denison. They will also visit Sher-
