I pal gave up is too anti secured a Fortune by Dii obeying the will. The other Day we met on Kearney Street an old time Washoe acquaintance called Jem Briggs whose usually Well worn miners appearance was on this occasion replaced by a gorgeous display of velvet Vest Check pants red Scarf and ponderous watch Chain while his honest and simple face shone above these evidences of Prosperity with the Placid Contentment of a full Harvest Moon. A hello Jem a we said a glad to see you looking so prosperous. Must have struck it Rich a so i have a said Jem and then As his tanned face saddened a Little he continued a but i had a mighty Tough loss though. My partner Ned Bimberg you remember Ned has gone up the a dead he a a yes ill Tell you How it was. You see Ned and i had a quarrel about two years ago. Done to matter now what it was All about. Me be Ned was wrong and me be i was but All the same neither of us would Back Down Coupler fools you la say and so we were Aud the upshot was that we parted and agreed never to speak to each other a and did no to you a a no sir More shame for us As we had been cards thick and thin for fifteen years together. Well about six months after that Ned got a Good gravel claim up on the Feather where they Vic been turning the River bed and he struck it Rich cleaned up nigh on to 1250, in ten a Maud How were you getting on a a ooh clean broke. Working up at Gold Hill for 13 a Day. Well i was Kinder sneaking glad to learn of Ned a Luck for All we were outs but the next thing i heard was that head been killed by the Bank a caving in on him. He lived just Long enough to make his will. Well the lawyers wrote As How Ned was Worth just about $220,000, and the will gave $5,000 apiece to each of three Distant cousins of his no they had All come out from the East when they heard of Ned a find and the same amount to me mind you just As though we Hadnot Quad relied. But Ned Allers was a a Centric sort of cuss Aud the will provided that none of us should get the Money if we attended the funeral. He did no to want anybody at the funeral but just the undertaker. The will said he had a lived lonely and he wanted to be buried themes just the words and i Felt they were intended for me sure. The disposition of the rest of the estate about $200,000�?was provided for in an other codicil to be opened the Day after the funeral but we All in posed it was donated to a charitable object for Ned Hadnot any Kin a keep tiny the a of course you stayed away from the funeral a a a that a just the Point. Somehow i Felt so miserable Aud downhearted you see Ned was the Onliest partner i Ever had Viiu i dote mined to go and see him sent Down on by inst Cage anyway Money or to Money and i a and the cousins a a none of a Era went. Fact is they were so disgusted at the a divvy that they cleared out Down to a Frisco to see about breaking the will. So i was the Only Mourner at the funeral. My friends All thought i was fit for the crazy House to throw away the $5,000 like that Well i just help it. It turned out though to be the Best Lead i Ever a How was that a a Why the next Day when the main will was opened we found it really gave the entire balance of the clean up to whichever of us four disobeyed the condition for the $5,000 bequests. So you see i came in for the whole Lump just like a knife. And do you know As sure As guns Iron i shall All Ere believe that Ned put up the whole Job a purpose a cause he snowed id be Tharle a san Francisco examiner. Groundless complaints. Aurora the goddess of the morning was lamenting among the gods that she who was so much praised by Mankind was so Little loved and sought after by them Anc least of All by those who Sang of her and praised her most. A Grieve not at thy Fate a said the goddess of Wisdom a is not mine the same and consider too a continued she a who Are those that neglect thee Aud for what rivals they desert thee. Behold How whilst thou Art passing by they lie buried in the arms of sleep and waste away body and soul. Besides bust thou not friends Hast thou not votaries enough All creation honors thee All the Dowers awake and deck themselves in thy Rosy Light in new bridal Beauty. A the choir of Birds welcomes thee each contrives some new device to Hail thy Brief visits. The industrious Husbandman the studious Sage do not neglect thee they drink from the cup which thou proffered pc health and strength quiet and Long life doubly Welcome in that they enjoy thee undisturbed by the noisy rout of sleeping fools. Dost thou dream it Little happiness to he beloved and be Uii approached by the multitude a tis the highest pleasure of love among god and Aurora blushed at her groundless complaints and every fair Ane who is pure and innocent like her desires the same Good Fortune for York Ledger.

Grand View addition in situated about two and one fourth Miles Southeast of the Post office which is now the Center of population of the City it covers a Range of High Bills about two Hundred feet above the surrounding country. Consequence the drainage is away from it on All sides. Lines Corners and Fine property was originally surveyed in 1845 by Joseph a. Tivy and the Corners actually established upon the ground with witness Trees to each one and the Boundary lines nearly marked and All of which Are dearly identified now therefore there is absolutely no Posi Blitz of changes in lines made by every new Surveyor who May Survey there in the future. This subdivision has been made and carefully surveyed by w. M. Lock. County Surveyor and John d. Rullmann Surveyor and draughtsman. The Corners of ail the blocks Are established Aud All streets Are Monument ted. The streets All run East and West and North and South and the avenues Are Laid out and fit the contour of the Hills James Avenue connecting East end addition with South Heights and Park Terrace additions. Each Block is so situated As to get the Benefit of the Tine View As Well As the prevailing Southeast wind. Many of these Hills Fine building Stone the same As that in the Walls of the missions and Alamo crop out and Oan be Cut and quarried with pick axes in blocks of suitable sizes for building. This Rock hardens As soon As exposed to the atmosphere and can be Laid in the Walls of House sat a Cost of one tenth the Price of Brick and is much better building material. The Quarry cropping Are on certain Hills confined to themselves while the Soli n the others cannot be surpassed any where in the country being a Sandy chocolate Loam which during Rainy weather does not become Muddy hence we have Fine hard ground in grand View during the most inclement weather. Being South East of the City on High Hills overlooking the City and surrounding country a person hardly needs reflect upon the great advantages this subdivision has Over other portions of the City being the first Ridge of Nills Between san Antonio and the Gulf the prevailing South East Breeze from the Gulf which blows for nine Moths of the year has no Intel eruption until it reaches this property and after passing Over it. Passes on through the cemetery thence through the City to the North West. People Corning two or three thousand Miles for fresh sure air should see that they get it before others have used it. The prevailing South East Reeze carries All the smoke dust. Impurities and malaria in directly the opposite direction from this property. Upon the highest Hills Fine Wells of pure water can be had at a depth of thirty five feet and As the drainage is away from them on All sides no seepage Oan contaminate the water. Being situated Between East end on the North and South Heights on the West the development of any of these Tine subdivisions will assist to build up the others. Electric oars Are now running through South Heights to within a fourth of a mile of grand View on the West while the projected car line through East end will run to within a Quarter of a mile of grand View on the North and the projected car line of the Park Terrace company will be but a Short distance in in grand View on the South West.
