An unexpected strike  was recently
made in tho No. 2 tunnel ofthe Montezuma about 40  feet  from   its  mouth.
The Chinese cook of the mine, who Is
un observant sort of a  fellow nnd who
has some stork in  the  company,  was
picking around between   meals   and
found n short distance within the hanging wall some cropping^   i"  which  he
called   Manager   Patrick's  attention.

"fin��� last pari ol the -s mile v aro
road to the Montezuma from the K. A
S Ry. at Nashville will soon be completed. Iu addition to the $1,1 100
ernment aid already appropriated for
thin road, word hns been received
within the last lev. days from the Assistant Commissioner of Lauds and
Works that $2,000 additional will be
reimbursed as the government's share
of the construction of the complete six
miles of roed further up the fork. This
as urea the whole road if the mine
I-,, i.e.-. and Interested oitizen o
will make op tbe balance and the
road may thus be completed this fall.
A greater aid to Kaslo's growth could
not be given,inasmuch as these prop* r-

says regarding the continued fall In
the price of silver:
"In my opinion the   world   ctin proline -in! t tceed  150,000,000 ouncei
per annum at 50 cents per ounce! The
annua] absorption is greater than 150,-
000,000 ounces, so that 50 cents should
be a bed rock price, fn the Immediate
future, it may go below Hfty cents, bo-
oatise the smelters und others are offering io sell million'- of ounces at the
lowest price to be obtained, on 30, 60
and 11(1 days. Hence, this Is done with

Hint Director Preston Roasted.
Li. S. Director of the Mint Preston
has aroused considerable criticism bj
his recent statement that he saw no
future whatever for silver and by his
comments upon tl polii leal effects of
this condition. A recent dispatch fn >>
Washington say- that silvermen there
are very indignant, at his attack on
silver. Senator Stewart of Nevada,
who Was r ntly falsely reported as
having .'i.'i I the silver cause, i.-
partici   . ided at the   statement
that oil nations, including Mexico, desire to: ! upon a void basis. He is
said to be largely ' ted   in silver
mines ln Mexico, and he asserts that
Director Presti n is utterly Ignorant of
the situation in that republic. He declares that even a gold production of
Of 9240,000,0Q0 of gold animal!;. wo,ii<l
not fill the-vacuum caused by the retirement of silver coin from circulation. Director Preston's estimate ol
the gold production for this year he
characterizes as absurd, He assei ti
thai. Mexico on a gold basis would retrograde Into barbarism, and could not
pay I ' ii't' " ��� on hor foreign _i it,
He says that the man who will talk

he fears thai lie Is as ignorant of  this

"pun" it.
The grent Klondyke strike was made
Inst year, but nothing wns known of It ln
the United States until June 15 of the
present year, when a vessel called the
Excelsior arrived in San Francisco laden
with miners from the Klondyke, who in
turn were Indcn with gold. They told
almost incredible tales of the richness of
the newly discovered district, where fortunes hud been accumulated in a few
months. Experienced miners and "ten-
derfeet" seemed to have shared good fortune alike, nnd with some justice, too,
for the credit of the discovery of the new
gold fields is due to the inexperienced men.
Another vessel brought to Seattle n bcc-
ond party of successful prospectors and a
ton anil n hulf of gold. These rnen had
endured peril and undergone grent hardships in accumulating the fortunes they
brought, and they told a storj that hnd a
dark as well aa a bright side. To follow
their example means a risk of wealth,
health and even life, but for those who
nre willing tn take the chances the prospect they hold out is alluring.
The Klondyke District.
The richest of the mines in the Alnskn
region seeir, to be in the Klondyke, a few
miles over the British border. They were
discovered, ns hus been snid, by u party
of "tenderfeet," who, against tlie advice
of the old-timers in the district, wandered
"over yonder in the Klondyke" and struck
it rich. From Klondyke conies much of
the gold nnd from Klondyke seems to
come all the excitement. A few "tender-
feet," going it blind, huve stirred up the
nation. Out of the region of their discovery hns come, it is estimated, $2,000,-
000 worth of gold during the present summer. Nearly all of that gold has found
its way into the United Stntes.
It is hnrd to tell where the Alaska gold
fields are located except thnt in n general
way the best of them are along the Yukon.
There nre a few "lode" mines near Juneau nnd along the southeast const of the
territory (the most accessible pnrt of it),
but the one is of low grade and mining is
made profitable only by the most careful
The plncer mines, from which prospectors nre said to be lining their pockets with
gold, occupy the prominent place in the
popular mind. These nre in the region remote from civilization, little known, and,
on account of its uncertainties, dangerously alluring to the average man. This
gold-producing country of the interior
is in the vicinity of the Yukon near where
that great river turns to the west in its
cniirse to the sea. Before the discoveries
in the Klondyke the most productive districts had been along Forty Mile Creek,
partly in British and partly in American
territory, nnd the Birch Creek district, all
in American territory. Along all tf the
rivers in this region, tributaries to the
Yukon, geld diggings exist nnd in ninny
places pay the prospector well for his
Cook's Inlet is another place where the
rumors of gold caused crowds of unpre-
through n rigorous climate, or almost
4,000 miles by land and water, with mountain passes to scale as dangerous as those
of the Swiss Alps.
The fabulous tales of wealth sent out
by tbe California pioneers were no less
wonderful than those brought back by the
men who braved the last cold season in
the Klondyke mineral belt, and in both
cases those who returned brought back
with them great nuggets of the precious
stuff that left little or no doubt in the
mind of the hearer. The California miner
ln the song who had bo many nuggets that
he was accustomed to "go a hatful blind"
finds his parallel In the Yukon miner who
claims to have "washed out" $212 in one
panful of dirt���a process that requires
ten or twelve minutes.
The Alaska and California gold fields
are alike also in being placer mines. Placer
mining is commonly called "poor man's
mining," for the reason that it ls done
without machinery, while the implements
required in the work are few and of small
cost. A placer miner can get along very
well with a pick, shovel nnd gold pan.
If th* dirt is not rich he can accomplish
Yukon, which winds northward and eastward, and finally brings the traveler to
Dawson City, now the principal town in
the district, although sixty-five miles from
the Klondye fields.
The coBt of the trip from Chicago this
way, as prospecting miners usually travel,
is $251.50. It is divided as follows:
From Chicago to Seattle (second class),
$51.50; from Seattle to Dawson City,
$200. In time the trip costs thirty dnys���
four from Chicngo to Seattle,- sixteen from
Seattle to St. Michael's Island, and ten
up the Yukon to Dawson City by the fast
boat. The distance in general figures is
2,250 miles from Chicngo to Seattle,
2.500 miles to St. Michnel's Island and
1,890 miles up the Yukon to Duwsnn, u
total of about 0,000 miles.
ern land limit.   The United States, therefore, may almost say with England that
the sun never sets on its possessions.
The Great Yukon River.
The principal river In Alaska, the Yukon, up which prospectors have to work
their wenry way to reach the gold fields,
was called by Schwatka, the Alaskan
Nile. It rises a little more than 200 miles
above Sitkn, In the southern part of
Alaska, nnd then strikes northwnrd, following a broad circle to the west before
it empties into Behring Sea through an
extensive deltn. Six hundred miles in
from the coast it is more than n mile
wide and the volume of its wnter is so
great aa to freshen the ocean ten miles
out from land.
The principal cities of Alaska are Ju-
pared men to flock, but the district hns not
exactly borne out the reputation given to
it by early prospectors.
In all the immense country over which
the placer mining extends It is estimated
that up to laBt year there were 2,000 miners. The districts In which most of them
worked were in a broad belt of gold producing rock, through which quarts veins
carrying gold occur frequently. Through
the gold-bearing rocks the streams have
cut deep gullies and canyons, and in their
beds the gold which was contained in the
rock is concentrated. The mining of this
country consists, therefore, in washing
out the gravel of these beds.
To Beach the Gold Field*.
The best way to reach, the Klondyke
district? One goes from Seattle by ocean
steamer west nnd a little north, and passes through Dutch Harbor, at the extreme end of the Southwest Alaskan peninsula. From there the steamer turns
north nnd continues on to St. Michael's
Island, a little above the mouth of the
Yukon, in Behring Sea. At that point
passengers are transferred to the river
steamers to begin the long journey up the
Another way, the "mountain route," is
shorter in miles, but equally long in the
time it requires nnd a grent deal more
difficult. By this route the traveler sails
more directly north to Juneau, which ib
890 miles from Seattle, nnd then goes by
lnke and river nnd over the mountains
1,000 miles to the new mining territory.
The cost of the trip this way cannot be
definitely stilted beyond Juneau, because
after that point it depends somewhat on
the bargain made with tho ChilUoot Indians, who pack supplies through the pass,
and the length of time the overland pnrt
of the journey requires; but the Indlnns
who act ns guides nnd pack supplies do
not work without big pay.
Dawson City.
Dawson City, the center of the new
mining region, although sixty-five miles
distant from the Klondyke, is snid to be u
typical mining town���minus tbe guns.
The British Government enforces its Inws
in Dawson, and those lnws prohibit the
use of firearms, so few men curry guns.
The laws of the camp are enforced by
mounted police, whose captain 1b a civil
officer. Though tliere are said to be ,1,000
people in Dawson, few houses hnve been
built, for the principal renson thnt lumber
is $100 per 1,000 feet. The general fear
is, of course, that there will be great suffering there this winter, and it will be increased, it is expected, by the rush of
unprepared prospectors who sailed for tho
new fields immediately on learning what
luck hud befallen those who hnve but
recently returned.

Alaaka and Ita Reaourcee.
In the purchase of Alaska, the United
States acquired a territory more than
half a million square miles iu extent, a
part of it within the arctic circle and in
the region of everlasting ice and snow,
where, during part of the summer, there
is continuous day and during the winter
continuous, dreary night. The Alaskan
coast line ls greater than our Atlantic seaboard, but the entire population of whites,
Eskimos and fierce Indians who are
called the Apaches of the North, Is not
much more than that of a ward division
ln Chicago.
In acquiring the Alaskan territory,
though the United States moved its center, figured in geographical mines, not In
area or population, as far west as San
Francisco. The country now extends
from about the 05th degree of longitude
up at the far east corner of Maine to the
122d degree up at the far northwest tip
of the A ni ska n mainland. This is taking
no account of the little island of Attu,
1,000 miles out In the Pacific, beyond the
Hawaiian group, which, since the purchase ot Alnskn, has really been our west-
neau and Sitka. They are both thriving
towns, and probably they will thrive
from now on, for a time at least, as they
hnve never thriven before. Alaska Is ruled
by n territorial governor, who now is J.
O. Brady, recently appointed by President
McKinley to succeed James A. 8heakley.
The Governor's residence is in Sitkn.
Among the things Alaska has done for
this country nside from stirring up the
present gold excitement one of the most
forward wns to involve it in disputes with
England on the houndary question nnd
the sunl fisheries business. Both of these
disputes threatened war, but white-winged peace settled over the situation in each
case nnd brought the suggestion of that
newly inve. cd English-American Institution���arbitration, However, the boundary
question is not settled yet.
Character of the Population.
The census enumeration of 1800,
gave the population of the territory ns 1(0,329, of whom 4,410 were whites,
82 blacks, 1,568 half-breed I ml inns und
Eskimos, i:i,7!l5 natives not Eskimos (Indians), 2.125 Chinese and 8,400 Eskimos.
The number of whites has probably been
more than doubled since then, however,
ns the Alaskan gold fever set in iu mild
form three or four years ago. One would
hardly think of going to Alaska for the
social ndvuntnges of the place.
Neither could it be said thnt a reasonably constructed individual would go there
for the climate. In winter the thermometer falls so low in places that no one will
recognize it; that it goes down to 70 degrees and lower. During all this kind of
winter up in the Yukon region little can
be done but sit nbout n fire in a vain endeavor to keep warm, for darkness exists
niOBt of the time, nnd the life seems like
that of a man uncomfortably seated at
the bottom of a well.

United States.
Scene of the present excitement Is
along the Upper Yukon and Its tributaries.
Distance from Chicago to the Klondyke gold fields, via the Yukon, Is
about 6,600 miles; via Chllkoot Pass,
about 4,000 miles.

During the summer season the days ar*
sometimes even a little bit hot, but nol
for long, lu thnt time, too, there is at
most continual dny, for thnt end of th��
earth (If it may be so called) is the ont
that Is pointed directly nt the sun.
But .is the summer brings warmth and
daylight it uIbo brings mosquitoes. And
such mosquitoes! Creatures thnt buzi
and bite in such a way as to make tin
dreaded Jersey variety seem by comparison like the silvery, angelic, sweetly, humming fancies of n peaceful dream. The
travelers who return from the Yukon region tell stories of how brave and strong
men, courageous enough to undertuke th��
perils a journey to that country Involves,
actually break down and sob in utter desperation and despair under the torment,
of these terrible pests. The ice and th��
"magnificent distances"of the country ar��
not the only drawbacks to its exploration or to journeying to the gold fields; th*
mosquitoes must ever be remembered.
Of course, in the southern pnrt of Alaska, where Junenu nnd Sitkn are situated,
the winters are not so rigorous. Tliere
the weather is comparatively mild, and in
summer is said to lie delightful. But
Juneau nnd Sitka are Infinitesimal as compared with the whole country, nnd they
are not nn index to whnt is furnished farther up nnd fnrthcr inland.
Industriea of Alaaka.
'When travelers were asked ns Inte as
two or three years ago what were the
principal pursuits in Alaska they replied,
of course, that fishing and hunting furnished occupation for the greater pnrt of
the population. What else wns to be expected from a population made up In the
mnin of Eskimos und Indians? In the
Sitka district there nre magnificent forests and lumbering is an industry, but in
the barren, icy north the occupation of
the Indian was to shoot aud trap the
bear, the fox, the otter and the other animals whose fur would bring a price in
tlie markets of the world, to catch the
scnls and spear the whale and catch the
other fish or gome that could be turned
into money. Salmon canning is the great
industry of the Kndiuk district, and has
been for years.
Of late, however, the other industries of
Alaska hnve sunk almost out of sight because of the new gold flurry. Mining, of
course, is the iudustry of the white man.
Virgin gold might hnve lain in plain sight
in the locks to a limitless extent and in
nil probability the Indlnns and the Eskimos would never have touched It.   Food

But with the white man it was different. He came, he saw, he dug, and in
the digging he found richness. Glittering
gold greeted hlB eyes, aud the fever of
gold is epon us.
Work ins Placer Mlnea.
The Klondyke mines nre placers���the
most easily worked mines of auy, and
requiring the least expenditure. The
methods of washing out placer gold are
known us "sluicing" and "panning." Tbe
former is employed where the yield is of
ordinary value, while all old-timers prefer the latter iu rich ground,
Iu sluicing the dirt is shoveled into the
sluice box, through which water is rapidly running. The box is of varying length,
and has holes bored In the bottom. These
holes are filled with quicksilver; the dirt,
gravel nnd small bowlders are washed
over the quicksilver, but the gold adheres
to it. When a miner "cleans up," sometimes every night, sometimes once a week,
the wnter ls turned off and the sluice box
holes are cleaned out.
In panning, the dirt is put into a gold
pau���about the size of a small dishpan.
This pan is made of copper. The miner
squats beside a stream, dips water into
the pan, oscillates it with a motion that
can only be acquired by experience, and
gradually sloughs out the water, dirt,
gravel, etc., retaining the gold In the pan.
Gold being the heaviest substance, It is of
course the easiest to retain in the pan.
If it be in the shape of nuggets, the miner
picks them out of the pan with his fingers;
if the gold be in small particles, fine gold,
or "flour" gold, he dries the pan in thai
sun and carefully brushes the deposit into
a piece of buckskin or other mnterial used
for carrying the precious metal.
A pick, n shovel, a gold pan, water, and,
of course, some gold are the only essentials of placer mining. Machinery is only
necessary in placer mining where large
areas of ground thnt yields only moderately are worked, and then only for hydraulic power in washing down the dirt.

Several of these pumps nre thus continually engaged on the different levels, else
Ihe water would collect in such nuituti-
!ies as to render work impracticable and
Ultimately flood the mine.
A dreadful accident occurred by the last
car of one of those trains becoming detached from its fellows. At a point where
the fifth level branches from the slope one
of the v/orkers was standing when the
detached car went rushing down the slope
with almost the velocity of a cannon ball.
Those who heard the roar of the oncoming
car shouted to the man to move. He
either did not hear them or became paralyzed with fear; iu any case the car
ground him to pieces against one of the

fatalities are numerous. We aire all more
or less familiar with the great disasters
of the coal fields, in each of which ten,
twenty or more persons have been killed.
But outside the coal regions themselves
the news of the minor tragedies seldom
penetrate, or If it does it is overlooked or
forgotten. But they are always occurring.
Surely the coal miner is engaged in
perilous work. He deserves a better fate
than want and the contingency of starvation���a fate that is confronting thousands
of miners and their families in the anthracite regions of Pennsylvania to-day.
The Romance of Coal.
Considerable of a romance attaches to
the early use of coal in this country.  Its
market for it. The surrounding timber,
and what with the low price of wood and
the abundance of charcoal, there seemed
little prospect of marketing the conl for
many a long year to come, The work
of mining wns consequently soon nbuu-
Col. Weiss, however, determined In
bringing the coal to the uttention of the
people. He tilled his saddle bags with
it from time to time and rode around
among the blacksmiths, earnestly soliciting them to try it. Many refused to hnve
anything to do with "common stones,"
and those who tried it met with only partial success. Accordingly the coal company relaxed its efforts to obtain a market and were about to dissolve when, in
1798, the Legislature chartered a company to improve the navigation of the
Lehigh River. This work was completed
in 1802 und the coal company renewed
their efforts to bring their products to
market. In 1803 six boats, each containing 100 tons of coal, started from Mnuch
Chunk lor Philadelphia. Four of the
boats caine to grief on the way and two
of thein reached the city of Brotherly
Love. After much delay the coal was
sold to the municipal authorities, who
were then working a steam boiler to pump
water into tanks for the use of the city.
But all attempts to bum the conl failed
and it was broken up and scattered over
the foot wnlks. And thus for a period of
seventeen years ended the operations of
the Lehigh Coal Mine Company.
Some years later, or in 1810, conl wnc
found in the vicinity of Fottsville, Schuylkill County. The blacksmiths of the
neighborhood experimented with it and
happily with buccoss and a number of
Individuals, among them Col. George
Shoemaker, interested themselves in its
development. In 1S17 he loaded ten wagons with the mineral nnd sent them to
Philadelphia. On the way some of the
conl w>lB disposed uf to blacksmiths nnd
a considerable quantity wns sold to the
Fiiinnount Null Works. The rest was
disposed of to Individuals in Philadelphia.
The hitter, unable to burn the coul, although DSSOied that it would burn, regarded Shoeinnker ns a swindler nnd warrants were issued fur his arrest. He succeeded, however, in eluding the officers
of the law and returned home by a roundabout route. But while the prospect of
securing n mnrket for coal thus looked
dnrk nn Incident occurred thnt completely
changed the situution. At the Fnirmount
Nail Works tin attempt was made to burn
the coal. The men raked It, stirred it, nnd
blew upon it, but without success. At
the noon hour they shut fnst the furnace
doors and with many a muttered imprecation on the blnck stones went to their
dinners. When they returned the furnaces were red hot and the fire within was
seething and roaring like a tempest. They
had discovered the secret of burning anthracite coal���it only required to be let
This successful burning of the mineral
predisposed many in its favor, while the
growing scarcity and dearness of wood
rendered u substitute indispensable. And
thus the Lehigh Coal Mine Company appeared once more in the field. In 1820
they shipped 365 tons of coal, readily finding a market nnd three years later their
shipment amounted to nearly 5,000 tons.
Both companies then consolidated undei
the title of the Lehigh Coal and Navigation Company. In the Schuylkill region
the development of the coal industry was
rapid and by 1827 over 20,000 tons wer*
shipped to market.

Another British novelist has been seduced into coming over here by the
prospect of making a few more American dollars. This time It Is the retiring
and modest niitlior of the "Zenda"
stories. Lovers of the romantic have
enjoyed the lively work of Mr. llnw-
kins, but it Is doubtful If they will care
at this day to hear It read by the author. Dickens llrst set Ihe fashion of
authors reading their work to audiences, and he was followed by Thackeray and ninny others. Hut both Dick;-

public entertainers, the former especially so. The breadth and human interest of his wrU-PB*! too- helped to
make his ivajd_bigs as^i-ci^s. laii ifue-
Iaren called forth a lively interest because he was, besides being a popular
writer, a noted philosopher, Mr, Hawkins Is none of these things. He Is not
even a public speaker, nnd has not yet
attempted to lest Ills powers ill that direction, it is hardly likely that he will
add to his popularity by thiN American
trip, although, of course, bis admirers
over here will be glad to see him.

If Inter Information benrs out the
llrst reports of discoveries of rich gold
Qeldg along the Klondike river In Brit-
iiii Columbia it will not be surprising
if the world witnesses nguln Home, of
the picturesque spectacles which attended the great rush to the California
gold Holds iifty years ago. The story
of a steamer which reached Scuttle
the other dny with a loud of passengers, almost every one of whom curried his bundle of gold dust. Is In Itself
euougb to kindle the Imagination of
people who crave sudden wealth. Let
this narrative be repeated often
enough, let It become definitely known
that there Is a new, un worked gold
Held, where any man may seize a claim
and work It for his own enrichment,
und the exodus to the Klondike will
follow with a rush. People are less ,
credulous than they were when the
temptations of California were held
before the eyes of Christendom. But
they art' not less eager for wealth nor
less willing to risk time and health In
its pursuit. The extraordinary development of the Witwatersrand mines In
Africa ln recent years show what;
charm the Idea of opening a natural
treasure house still has for men. Even

It has been cabled from Vienna that
Marconi's wireless telegraph is a success. For the purpose of signaling
short distances through walls of wood

a success months ago. But the Inventor was apprehensive that If used for

peed to be chiefly useful, It would touch

would have nowadays In getting to the
Klondike or the upper Yukon, but the
California gold-seeker had a fairly
equable Climate for his travels and for
his work after he arrived. The mun
who goes to tho mines along the Klondike must bear considerable expense
for his Journey, he must bo ready to
lace the hardships of uuremlttent labor, of a rigorous climate nnd of limited rations, nnd occasionally he must
confront real perils. After he arrives
he must live ln a complete Isolation
from civilization for the greater part
of the year. Men bitten with the desire for gold-hunting would do well to
take full account of these conditions
before venturing on an expedition
which, while it may result In wealth,
may merely leave them stranded, penniless and hungry ln a rigorous climate.

Kuished nctor, this plain-faced old
"story and a half house" Is the most
fatuous of the landmarks of the quaint,
olil-fiishloned town. Oddly enough,
the house In which the gentle character
artist iviih born does not mark the spot
of ground which was his natal pluee.
No house does for tlint matter, ns the
lazy, alluvium laden waters of the
Grand River drowses over the place
where this nnd ninny another building
stood ns a part of Brunswick when It
was famous for the amount of tobacco
and the number of "niggers" sold there
every year.
The town was originally built on the
left' bank of the Missouri Hiver, and
among the first residences of the town
wns the Russell homestead, so local
tradition runs. There were no railroads then, but packet boats made
regular calls. Then the river became
restless nnd rolled over against the
town nnd tore away Its foundatlolns.
Nearly all of the buildings were
saved from the capricious flood by the
energetic efforts of the house mover.
Among the structures rescued wus the
Russell home. Along with the rest of
the town, It was moved linek tothefoot
of the bluff. When the town hud got
itself cuddled up In a safe place the
river turned to the right nnd flowed
over Into Saline County, leaving Brunswick five miles Inland. A few years
later, however, the (irand River crept
luto the old bed of the Missouri, nnd It
hns been dozing there ever since, excepting when the rains come In the
springtime to wake Its current.
It Is not related In Brunswick that Sol
Smith Russell has ever exhibited his
art tliere since he became famous, or
that he has In late years revisited his
ancestral home. A heavy footed man
who Is a hostler In a livery stable lives
In the house now.

The Condemned Student's Hater
Studying Abroad.
On the other side of the Atlantic, ln
the German capital, Miss Maud Dur-
rnnt has for two years been waiting to
know the fate ef her only brother, condemned to death for murder ln Sun
Francisco. Little hns been snid of this
sister, far off In a foreign land, and
only the most intimate friends of the
Durrnnts .have realized the extent of
her suffering.
There hns been considerable surmise
as to why she did not hasten home Immediately after the arrest of her brother, some time during the trial, or after
the sentence. People have wondered
whether she would or would not come
back If the extreme penalty of the law
should be Imposed. But no stranger
knew, and tbe Durrants remained silent. They hnve been careful from tbe
first to keep their daughter In the background, screened from the public view.
The truth Is that the sister across the
water has never for a moment thought
of neglecting her brother If It shall become necessary for him to give up his
At first the parents opposed the return of their daughter. They feared
the nervous strain, tbe terrible shock,
would be too severe a tax on her
health.   They advised her to remain
where she was. But ln her loyalty to
her childhood playmate, Miss Durraut
threw advice to the winds.
"If It comes to the worst, I shall go
home to my brother,' she wrote; "1
could not be satisfied otherwise."
So her parents consented. They felt
they could say no more. The money
for her fare was forwarded to Berlin
and several times during the past few
months Miss Durrant has packed ber
trunks and prepared to stnrt for home.
Each time she was prevented by favorable news from her parents. The
young lady has been ln constant communication with her parents by post
and cable since the f.rst dr.y of their
great sorrow.
Through all the dark days the Durrant family have passed (hiring the last
two years the sister has never wavered In ber faith that her brother Is Innocent. And that ls the cheering message she sends him.
"I have as much love for, and confidence In you to-day, Theo. ns I had
that morning I kissed you good-by, and
whispered, 'Be a good boy, deuric, and
be sure to graduate.' "
A Hungarian Wretch Who Poisoned
More Than 100 People.
Hungary has produced the greatest
woman criminal of the century and
perhaps of all time. According to her
owu confession she prepared and sold
the poison by which over 100 human
beings were relieved of life and her
only regret is that her victims were not
more numerous.
The name of this debased creature Is
Aziiliu Jngcr Marl and she ls 02 years
old. Recently she was convicted of ber
crimes In Budapest and sentenced to
Imprisonment for life. She started out
In her criminal career by killing Infants and soon developed a mania for
murder of nil kinds. Through her Instrumentality husbands became relieved of disagreeable wives and wives of
disagreeable husbands. Then others
sought the poisons which she manufactured to rid themselves of relatives
and reap the Insurance on their lives.
The woman never administered poison herself, but she understood the subjects to be experimented upon so well
thnt she could tell to a day when the

Tricks on tho Teachers.
The other dny a pupil In one of the
public schools naked the teacher to do I
n little example in grammar, and since !
then what seemed at first to lie a simple I
problem has had the serious consider-1
atlon of all the iietlngogues lu the com- \
munlty, and It has lieeu unanimously |
agreed that there le no rule In gram-
mai* to cover the i>oluit raised. The j
youngster's proposition was this:
"It Is two miles to Woodfords.   Now
please write under that sentence There j
are two twos In the above sentence.'" j
That Is what the boy said. He did
not submit the problem ln writing,
and Wihen the teacher tried to follow |
hia injunction she found out tlie reason
why. It dawned on her that there were
not two twos, neither wore there two
toe, and how to express la writing
what was easy enough to do verbally
she ascertained to Im- Impossible.
The boy responsible for the foregoing must be a near relative to the
youth who asked his teacher how to
spell Paris green, and when she replied,
"P-a-r Par, i-s, Paris, g-r-e-e-n, green;
Pairis green," retorted:
"No, you're 'wrong; you can't spell
Paris green, or blue, or any other color.
You can't spell It anything but Paris."

I tn  Dincovf ry   V\ an the Result of Ac
client   Knther   than   Design.
"I really believe that ninny of the
greatest discoveries ure the result of
pure accident, and this applies not only
to scientific facts, but also to more
material matters," remarked Gen.
Dudley Avery last night at the St.
0baj.es Hotel. "Accident brought the
great salt deposit on Avery's Island to
light after Its (Toppings had been worked for nearly half a century. My
gniiMfiilhcr snid suit years liefore the
war, and my father lu his youth followed the same methods of production,
even after his father's time, but It remained for my brother John, then a
boy of 16, to really make manifest the
remarkable advantages which the Island possessed lu the matter of rock
salt mliiilng. It was during the wnr.
Salt was selling in New Orleans for?ll
II sack. This wns at a period when the
salt works of the Island were not being made use of. Von see, my grandfather manufactured salt by digging
wells, Into which the salt water flowed
In great quantities, and this water he
merely boiled, evaporating the moisture
and causing a residue of fine salt
When my brother learned of the high
price of salt tn New Orleans he went to
uiy father, then practicing law lu
Baton Rouge, and suggested that he be
given permission to work the then
abandoned wells nnd make pin money
for himself. There was no objection,
and with the assistance of several
sluves John proceeded to open the old
wells by clearing out the accumulation of debris and lwlllng the brine, as
his grandfather did years before him.
He opened a number of new wells, and
was soon selling salt at a grent rate,
but the demand Increased, and he decided to open n Mg well some ten feet
square. The work proceeded, but the
usual depth was reached with no result. The water did not flow. He concluded to dig deeper, and nt sixteen
feet came upon what the negro diggers
wild was an old stump. Falling to
chop tlie 'stums' with sn ox. the netv
vuuuiuued he had struck a bed of rock,
and when my brother descended into
the excavation be managed, with a cold
chisel, to cut out a piece of what ho
thought was transparent rock. My
father, however, who happened to be
on tihe island at the time, knew what
bad been discovered, and In the course
of a little while the wonder of the discovery had been noised nil over the
country. Thus was discovered the first
rock sn'.t deposit In the South, nnd a
few months after that time a dozen
Hlinfts were being worked In n crude
way, and we were shipping salt to
Richmond In great quantities, nt least
great for that ficrlod ln tho world's history. Work has progressed almost
steadily since that time, nnd we are
shortly to begin a now sliaft which will
go deeper than ever; In fact, drop beneath the old workings, although this
Is not necessary, l>e.cn use we can tap
the deposit In any V>cnHry we choose."

JollyHsh as Protectors.
A singular oaee of fishes living on or

known by M. (ladenu do Kerville. The
young of the fishes called false mackerel are almost always found lu com-
pany with the large medulae known ns
rhlSOStomes, These young fishes swim
parallel with the long axis of the jellyfish, and In the same direction ns tho
latter. They remain above, beneath
and behind the animal, but never advance beyond its umbel. It frequently happens that some of them Introduce
themselves Into the cavities of the Jellyfish, nnd ore then visible from the exterior, owing to the transparency of tho
Sometimes the school of fishes wanders 0. few yards away from the medusa, buret the least alarm, Immediately returns with great rapidity to occupy
Its former posiMoin. It Is evident that
the medusa very efficaciously protects
the young fishes by means of Its innumerable stinging capsules. This is
demonstrated by the fact that when the
fishes become larger they no longer
seek protection by accompanying the
Want Bags Proteoted.
For some time past British entomologists, or bug-hunters, have beeu exercised over tlie extermination of certain
Insects In consequence of the zeal of the
collectors, who roam over the country
with butterfly nets. It would be difficult to protect butterflies and moths by
Legislation, as has been done for birds,
so an association has been formed under the auspices of the Entomological
Society of London. Tlie members agree
to leave rare Insects alone for awhile
and to do all In their power to curb the
sporting instinct In others. The Insect
collector who abides by It will be more
than human, remarks London Graphic.
Imagine a stomp collector agreeing not
to pick up a rare specimen from the
roadside, yet a similar temptation will
be met and have to be resisted by the
Insect collector.
