THE OLD-FASHIONED GAMES.
The wheel is apparently coming to stay,
For lassies as well as (or laddies—
But sorry we are tor it's taking away
The old-fushfunei] games of our daddies.
The children have wearied of living their
kites,
The shouting of marbles is over;
Gay "leap-frrrg" will never give any delights
And "par" is no longer in clover.
On stilts little fellows won't think they
are tall,
And tops Ihey will never bc spinning,
And as tor the nuialeur game of baseball,
No more will it give us au inning.
The round iron quoits will no longer be
tossed,
And tug, dear old lag, has beeu banished,
While "duck nn the roek" is an art that is
lost
And "riding duck," also, has vanished.
Forgotten, alas! is old "ball in the hole;"
"Hop-scotch" is all out of the fashion!
The hoople we never will gracefully roll,
And "cat" is no lunger a passion.
"Hide and seek" doesn't enter in anyone's
mind,
For "cricket" nobody is wishing;
"Strap the whip" lias departed, and soon
we will (ind
No pleasure in going a-fisklng.
"Copenhagen" in spite of its kissing, is
dune,
"Mumblepeg" is not worthy of notice,
And  hold   "stunting  muster"   tlie  little
ones sliini
As much as a hot mustard poultice.
"I spy," "wolf" and "follow your leader"
have passed,
"Hare ami hounds" is its Hut ns the
ceiling,
And rowing and  sailing i.re leaving us
fast,
For nothing is thought ot but wheeling.
The only  old  sports   thut   may   linger
around
Are sledding nnd snow forts and skating.
For when it is cold and there's snow on
the grouud
The wheel is wny off in its rating.
The cycle lias conic and is likely to stay,
For lassies ns well as for laddies.
Anil sorry we are. for ihey never will play
Thc old-fashioned games o[ their dud-

MISS NANCY'S
EAVESDROPPING.
"Who wns that youug man with
you'/"
Miss Niiuey Armstrong asked the
question of her niece, Margery. Her
tone was shnrp and her eyes had an
angry snap In them.
"It wns John Markham," answered
Margery, Quietly enough, as she look
'off her bonnet, but tlie tone In whieh
the question had been asked brought
an extra color Io her cheek and a sparkle of resentment to her eyes.
"I thought so," responded Miss Nancy, In her most Irritating wny. "Margery Armstrong, I should think you'd
lie ashamed ol* yourself."
"What for?" asked Margery. "I'm
not aware that I've done anything to
be ashamed of."
"0, you needn't try to plead luno-
cenee," retorted Miss Nancy. "You
ought to be ashamed of going with that
Markham fellow, aud yon know It."
"I don't know any sueh thing," answered Margery, facing her aunt bravely. "John Markham is a respectable
young man. You don't like him because there used to be trouble between
tbe Markbanis and the Armstrongs.
That happened before either of us was
born, and there's no reason why we
should keep up the quarrel. If we see
nt to like each other I don't know
who's going to prevent our doing so.'.'
"I am," answered Miss Nancy, grimly. "You needn't think—and John Markham needu't think—that a cent of my
property'll go Into the hands of any one
of that family!"
"0, you enn do just ns you see fit
to about your property, of course," said
Margery. "I haven't anything to say
about thnt, but if you think anything
you can do aliout It will prevent Johu
and I from liking each other, you're
quite mistaken. He don't want your
property, but"—with the prettiest, little blush Imaginable and a softening of
the voice at the Import of the words—
"he does want me."
"Margery Armstrong, I'd like to know
bow far this matter has gone," cried
Miss Nancy, ln wrathful surprise, "To
Judge by the way you tnlk one would
suppose It Is nil settled between you."
"It ls," nuswered Margery, with eyes
that never flinched before the angry
ones of her mint. "I promised John
to-night, coming home from church,
that I'd marry him ns soon as be has a
tDaie for me."
Uss Nancy fairly gasped for breath.

worry about tbat."
"That sounds well, but you'll sing a
different tune by and by," suid Miss
Nancy. "Just remember what I tell
you."
"All right. I will," replied Margery,
and then she went up to ber room, uot
io think about what her aunt had said,
but about the things she had talked or
with her lover as they walked home
from church together.
One day Miss Nancy decided to go .o
the city to do some shopping. She wns
always afraid of belug too late for the
train, aud generally arrived at the station at least half an hour before It was
due. She did so on this occasion, aud
as the day was a very warm one she
sat down ou the platform in lhe shade
of some large boxes of freight that hud
been unloaded there, thinking it more
comfortable there than In the stuffy
little waiting room.
Pretty soon she heard steps ou the
platform, and presently voices from
the other side of the pile of boxes
reached her ears.
"How is your matrimonial project
getting along?" wns asked by oue of
the unseen parties. And a voice which
Miss Nancy recognized as belouglug
to the squire's nephew answered:
"It seems to hang tire .lust at present. The fnct Is, the girl's got another
string to her bow, and the chances
would be against me if It wasn't for the
fact thnt her aunt favors my suit, because she thinks I'm going to get Uncle Amos' money, and she'd like to
unite the two properties. So I'm rather sweeter on tlie aunt at present than
I nm ou the girl. If I get the girl nt all
it must be through the old lady's influence, you see. The girl's a little daisy,
but tlie aunt's—well, she isn't a daisy,
you enn be sure of thai! It's a question
if having her in the family wouldn't be
paying a deur price for all hcr property,
but you see there's a chance of being
able lo shake her off alter a little. I
happen to know Unit a new railroad's
going through this place, and lhe company will have to buy n piece of land
she owns, and this land she intends to
give to the girl ns a wedding present.
Now, Just ns soon ns the road ls put
through—and It's sure to come—this
land will be worth more than all the
rest of the old lady's property. If the
girl gets a deed of it and I get the girl
I can sell It lo the railroad company
aud make a good big sum of money out
of It aud we'll be Independent of the
aunt, and when thnt happens, If It ever
does, I'll tell her to look out for her
affairs nnd I'll look out for mine. I'm
looking out now that she don't find out
about the uew railroad scheme. I want
to make sure of the girl and the land
before I break the news lo her."
Miss Nancy listened with ears nnd
eyes very wide open.
"Yes, when it happens. If It ever
does," she chuckled. "I dou't believe
you'll ever get the chance you're looking for, my smart young mnu! I don't
snppose I am a daisy—I never thought
I was!—but I rather guess I'm n match
for yon, siuce I know what to do. I
dou't believe you'll have to shake me
off. I think I'll do a little—or most—of
the shaking."
Just then the train came along, and
Miss Nancy got aboard of it without
belug seen by the youug meu.
That evening, when she came home.
as luck would have It, she met the
squire's nephew at the station.
"If you're going home you might
walk along with me nnd help carry
some of my bundles," she said, in ber
very pleasant manner. "I'm just about
tired out. I've been seeing to a good
deal of business to-day. I've had a
deed made out, giving Margery the
south forty acres of the farm, and I've
been pricing carpets and furniture and
finding out how much It's going to cost
to set up a young couple ln housekeeping. Of course they won't need the
things right away, but I thought I'd
get some Idea of what thc expense
would be."
"They—who do you mean?" asked
the young man ln bewilderment.
"Why, Margery nud Mr. Markham, of
course," answered Miss Nancy. "Who
else should I menu?"
"You dou't mean to say you're golug
to let your niece marry that fellow!"
cried the squire's nephew In surprise
nud consternation.
"Why, certainly," replied Miss Nancy, as If she had never had any other
Idea. "He's a nice young man. He's
got brains, and when he gets Margery
he'll get money, for the uew railroad's
going to make the land I've deeded her
worth a snug little fortune."
"I'd like to know bow you knew
about the new railroad!" cried the astonished young man.
"O, I keep posted on such matters,"
said Miss Nancy, looking very wise.
"But here we nre at my gate. Thank
you for bringing my bundles. Won't
you come iu?"
"No, not to-night," was the gruff reply, and Miss Nancy chuckled as the
young man went his way.
"I guess I've got about even with
you," she snld, nodding her head after
his retreating figure. "I guess he was
about as much surprised ns Margery'll
be."
Her niece had seen her, aud came out
to meet her and help her with her bundles.
"Margery, I've got something to tell
you," "aid Miss Nancy, anxious to have
the matter disposed of. "I've thought
It all over, and I don't know but you're
right about John Mnrkknin. It ls foolish to let an old grudge stand in the
way of young folks' happiness. I've
concluded to let you do ns you think
best, and I've had the south forty deeded to you, and when John gets you he'll
get that too, If you see fit to turn It over
to him. Anyway. It's yours to do Just
what you please with.'*
"Why, Aunt Nancy!" cried Margery,
looking at ber as if she felt sure she
bad gone crazy. "1 thought you'd never consent to our marriage!"
"Folks change their minds sometimes," said Miss Nancy. "Ther*!
there! Dou't hug mc so or I'll drop Ills
bandbox. I bear a whistle dowu tbe
roud tliat sounds like John's. You'd
better go and tell bim ibe news, aud
by and by, after I've bad a cup of tea,

MAN  DANGEROUS.
Statistics Show   lie Is Apt to Commit
Crime ut 29.
It Is a  singular fact, yet one sub- i
sty.ritluted   by   statistics,    thut    most '
crime Is committed In New   York by
men twenty-nine years old.   This Is*
not only true of tbe lesser but also of ;
Ihe greater crimes, although a mnu Is |
presumed to be at that period of his
life not only In the zenith of his phys-
leal, but nlso lu full and complete pos-
Besslon of ids mental powers, with a
complete  appreciation  of   right    and |
wrong   and   their    respective   couse- |
quenccs.    This condition Is a problem
which has not been solved by tlie student of criminology, nnd one which is
made the more complex by lhe fact
that tbe ages of twenty-one, twenty-
seven and forty-five years nearly equal
It, with the Intervening years showing
a far less percentage of crime.    It Is
Indeed peculiar that the criminal ten-
dency should be so strong at twenty-
nine, with no sueh Inclination, so far us |
criminal statistics show, in ns great a
degree  for   the    succeeding    sixteen
years, and then another outburst of ■
the animal in mau.   This condition Is
found lo be true by actual figures, and
as all statistical computations nt whicli !
average conditions nre sought to be de- j
termlued nre arrived ut by tbis method,
so may tbe student of Ibis subject, as j
well as   Ibe  Insurance  magnate  who
bases his rates on the general average of losses iu proportion to the risks
taken, and does so with full safely, !

him.   Charles K. Baker, chief clerk to
Superintendent Lathrop of lhe  New I
York bureau of statistics, has made this
subject one of close study, and will
soon have completed a lublc showing
this lo be true.    lie has already com- !
pleled one relative to murderers serving life sentences in the penal instllu-
tions. and its figures bear out tbc general conclusion.   He offers at Ibis time
no explanation for this, but hopes after
he has exhnusted the subject, so far ns j
the  presentation   of   figures   is  con- :
cerned. to lie able lo sel forth reasons
wiiy these years should bc productive
of tlie most crimes.
He Kules and Sorrows.
Ftw monarchs have had to undergo |
so many sorrows—public and private—
ns the Emperor Franz Joseph of Austria, and no oue has ever borne misfortune with greater courage. In his family he lost his first-born, n daughter,
Whom, though she died a little child,
he Is said never to have forgotten. His
next brother, the Emperor Maximilian,
was executed ln the prime of life by
the Mexicans. Tlie fate of his only sod j
is too tragic for more than an allusion. ;
In later days he bas lost another
brother; a granddaughter eloped with a
young officer; his wife is In bad health;
his nephew and heir ls an invalid aud
the nexrt prince lu the line of succession is a scapegrace.
His public life has been one of Incessant toll and danger. In fhe early part
of his reign he suffered severely from
the dagger of a would-be assassin. He
waged war unsuccessfully with the
French In 1859 nnd with the Prussians
In I860. He has been ousted from Germany, over which he once presided,
aud of which he formerly hoped to be
emperor, as his forefathers were. And
yet, lu spite of such defeats, no prince
Is more beloved by his subjects. Indeed, his personality Is the chief bond
by which bis heterogeneous dominions
are kept together.
Recently the emperor completed his
07th year. His Imperial aud royal
majesty was placed on the throne In
the revolutionary year of 18*18, when
his uncle Ferdinand abdicated, and ills
father declined to take up tlie burden
of the crown. In point of seniority ns a
sovereign he is second to Queen Victoria alone.

four of these types, which will contest for supremacy under tbe trying conditions
of actual use. One of these is a handsome wheel with it bevel gearing, enclosed
in a neat casing, uud is the result of a scries of experiments extending over several years. Another of them is bevel-geared, but differs in internal construction
from tlie one just mentioned, One is a wheel with Ihree sprockets engaging one
another iu u direct line. There is a sprocket on thc crunk axle, similar to the
ordinary sprocket, except that it is much larger and lire lecih are square. The
next sprocket in the line is of tire saute si/.e and shape, and the third, which is on
the axle ot the rear wheel, is smaller. The fourth of tlie most promising chainless
wheels also bus three sprockets, but tlie center one is five or six times the size of
the two others.

The Birth of a Son Again Directs
Public Attention to Her.
The birth of a son to Mr. and Mrs.
Cleveland ngalu directs the public attention to tbe former mistress of the
White House ln n degree which leaves
no room to doubt the place tbat f e
holds ln the hearts of the American
people. It may be truthfully said tbat
no other woman tn thia country has
ever occupied tne same, position t.at
Mrs. Cleveland has, aid that position
was created distinctly by herself. Other women hnve been mistresses of the
White HoiiBe and greatly beloved by
the people for tbeir graclousnesS, goodness and beauty; but none of them, not
excepting even the famous Dolly Madison, can go down In history occupying
the same position thnt must be accorded to Mrs. Cleveland.
When Mrs. Cleveland became mistress of the White House she was, comparatively speaking, nn untried girl,

upon her were of such n nature that the

wished by hot It parents.
In Ihe training of her children Mrs.
Cleveland     has     carefully     guarded
j against Hie dangers of environment,
keeping them carefully away from that
I atmosphere of flattery nnd attentions
which would naturally develop wrong
Idens In the little ones. Bul still she
lias been careful that Ihey are kept

who wouldn't give a trifle tn scrape nn

"Very possible, sir," went on Miller.
"Mr. Mrirkliriin. landlord ot' the While

At that moment the magistrate entered the court house.
"Weil.*' whispered lire chairman,
leaning over tin* tabic to the chief constable, "have yon beard anything',"
"Several complaints this morning, sir.
The rascal is still at work, but we have
no clew as yet."
"Confound the fellow," muttered the
chairman. "He's making a laughing

another chance in life, he iihe curate)
would pay Un- lino.
Having done so. he bowed politely to
the bench and led the protege from the
court. * *  .
Half an hour later Inspector Miller
hurried to the chief's room. In bis excitement he forgot tire respect due lo
bis superior, aud rapped out something
very much like nn oath.
"Miller!" ejaculated the chief constable.
"I beg your pardon, sir." stammered
the Inspector, "but—er—that is—the
curate."
"Well';"
"He'sslippeil through our lingers, sir;
can't be found anywhere."
"What ou earth do you want him
for?" demanded the chief.
"Beg pardon, sir, i forgot. He paid
the line In court this morning."
"I know that, man, is that a crime, or
arc you "
"Well, here's the money, sir," blurted
out the Inspector, throwing down a
number of coins on the table,
Willi grave doubts as to thc other's
sanity, the chief picked up one of the
coins ami examined It—then another,
and another, until all had been Inspected.
"Spurious, every one of 'em!" he
gasped, sinking into his chair.
For some minutes neither of them
spoke. The very audacity of the thing
had taken their breaths away.
Suddenly Miller jumped to his feet.
He lnnl a vague notion that be had seen'
the curate before.
''Can I have a fortnight's leave, sir,
nnd permission to take what 1 waul
from tlie police museum?" he asked,
"Take what you like, Miller, but for
goodness' sake let us have the last
laugh on our side."
The Inspector promised lo do his best,
and shortly afterward he left his chief's
presence.

"The police! Bah I They ain't worth
tupence a dozen."
Silas Markham, laudlord of the
"White Horse," and owner of another
half-dozen licensed houses in Wullhtirn,
folded liis nrms over ids broad chest,
and gave utterance to the above contemptuous remark.
"They don't possess the wits they
were born with," he went on. "Why,
poor Drinking Han there would give
the best of 'em points and n beating,"
The Individual referred to was leaning unsteadily against a pillar. He was
a well-known character, was Dan. For
a year or more he had beeu missing

"Of course, not, Dnn, you're only one

The laugh was against Dan, and
there was a dangerous gleam in the
eyes of tho bnll'-wlited wreck, as he
lurched over to his old position In the
corner.
About ." o'clock on tlio following afternoon Dan Btnggered into the bar, a
trifle more intoxicated than usual. Thc
landlord, however, who was the sole
occupant when Dan entered, served
hiin with the usual ■fwopenn'orlh."
The customer placed a half-crown
piece on the counter, which the landlord—after giving the change—threw
toward the till. It fell on the floor, and
something in its sound roused Mark-
ham's suspicions.
ricking up i In* coin, he examined It
closely, while Dan began io shuffle toward the door, Too late, however.
Markham sprang over Ihe counter,
seized the oilier by llur collar, and drugged him into a private room.
"Where dirl you get that coin';" lie
hissed.
"I.cninic go," pleaded Dnn, huskily.
"Where did you get it';" repeated lhe
oilier.
"A gini give it to me," stammered

Stepping Boftly to tin- door, tin- hunt

a couple of glasses.
"Come, Dan. here's to your- health."
said Markham, "it won't do for us to

"I knowed him twelve years ago," replied linn, adding, witli a keen glance
at his companion, "an" 1 knows 'im

Markham winced, anil glanced uneasily inward the door.
•■Well." he demanded at length,
"whirl do you want'.'"
"Work." replied his companion.
"And what aliout thc dies?"
"I'l bring 'em whenever you like."
Half nu hour Inter Drinking Dan
emerged from n side door and shambled off down the street.
The "While Horse" was a money-
making establishment, night ami day.
When "closing time" came round, ami
the last shilling hail rolled into the capacious till behind the counter of the
bar, business was resumed iu tlie
vaults.
In tlie wee sum' hours of a Xovem-

of experience which she has to draw
from, it is more than possible that she
has gained the very knowledge that

Lonely Death of Young will Perklnn
Who  Went  Hunting;.
Boise, Idaho, Nov. 20.—A sudden, lonely death lias been the fate of a young
lad of Middlelnn, named Will Perkins.
On Thanksgiving duy he went out shooting, but did not return. Early the next
day a parly wus out looking for tmces of
the missing lad. The fears of his parents proved only too well founded, liis
dead body being found on the edge of a
slough a mile or two from home. His gun
lay a little distance to the right. It had
been dischnrged, the charge striking the
unfortunate lad iu the right side, tearing
a. gaping hole through his body, it is
thought he slipped and threw the gun
from him to prevent it falling in the wa-'
ter, the trigger being caught by n twig
or stone and the piece discharged.

Of course n vast deal of. talk was
caused at West lllddleton, Ind., when
the wife of llev. 0. M. Baugh, pastor
of the Christian Church there, applied
In court for a divorce. Previous Io her
marriage to Mr. Baugh she had been
Mrs. Cunningham, a widow of considerable wealth. The decree was Issued
without contest on the minister's part.
No charges of any kind were made by
either person, and when they separated
the woman voluntarily gave Iter ex-
husband a written certificate of good
character, recommending him as an ex-
emplary Christian ntnl a good preacher.
This caused even a greater sensation
than was aroused when tho divorce pro-
ceedlngs were Instituted, but neither ol
the Interested parties offers any explanation. Mr. Baugh has resigned his
chargo and will go to Southern California to accept a position Ihere.

THE OLD-FASHIONED GAMES.
The wheel is apparently coming to stay,
For lassies as well as tot* laddies—
But sorry we are for it's taking away
The old-fashioned games of our daddies.
The children have wearied of living their
kites,
The shooliug of marbles is over;
Gay "leap-frog" will uever give any do-
lighls
And "par" is no longer iu clover.
On stilts little fellows won't think they
are tall,
Aud tops they will never be spinning,
Aud as for the amateur game of baseball,
No more will it give us aa inning.
Tlie round iron quoits will no longer he
lossed,
And tag, dear old lag, has been banished,
While "duel; on the rock" is an art that is
lost
Aud "riding duck," also, has vanished.
Forgotten, alas! is old "ball in Ihe hole*,"
"Hop-scotch" is all out of the fashion;
The honple we never will gracefully roll,
And "cat" is no longer a passion.
"Hide and seek" doesn't enter in anyone's
mind,
For "cricket" nobody is wishing;
"Snap the whip" lias departed, and soon

No pleasure iu going a-fishlng.
"Copenhagen" in spile ot its kissing, Is

As much as a hot mustard poultice.
"I spy," "wolf" and "follow your leader"

"Hare and hounds"  is as tint as the

And rowing and sailing are leaving as

For nothing is thought of hut wheeling.
The only  old  sports   Unit   may    linger

Are sleddlug and snow forts and skating.
For when it is cold and there's snow on

MISS NANCY'S
EAVESDROPPING.
"Who wns that youug man with
you'!"
.Miss Nancy Armstrong asked the
question of her niece, Margery. Her
tone was sharp and her eyes had an
angry snap in them.
"It was John Markbani," answered
Margery, quietly enough, as she took
"off her bonnet, but Ibe tone In which
the question had been nsked brought
nn extra color to her cheek nud a sparkle of resentment to her eyes.
"I thought so," responded Miss Nancy, in her most Irritating way. "Margery Armstrong, 1 should think you'd
be ashamed of yourself."
"What for'/" asked Margery. "I'm
not aware that I've done anything to
be ashamed of."
"O, you needn't try to plead itiiio*
ceuee," retorted Miss Nancy. "You
ought lobe ashamed of going with that
Markham fellow, nmi you know it."
"I don't know any such thing," answered .Margery, fairing her aunt bravely. "John Markham Is a respectable
young mnu. You don't like him because there used to be trouble between
the Markkams nud the Armstrongs.
Thnt happened before either of us was
born, and there's uo reason why we
Bhould keep up the quarrel. If we see
fit to like each other I dou't know
who's going to prevent our doing so.'.'
"I am," answered Miss Nancy, grimly. "You needn't think—and John Mark-
hum needn't think—that a cent of my
property'll go into the hands of any one
of that family!"
"0, you cnu do just as you see fit
to about your property, of course," said
Margery. "I haven't anything to say
about thnt, but If you think anything
you can do aliout It will prevent John
nnd I from liking each other, you're
quite mistaken. He don't want your
property, but"—with the prettiest little blush Imaginable and a softening of
the voice at the Import of the words—
"he does want me."
"Margery Armstrong, I'd like to know
how far this matter has gone," cried
Miss Nancy, In wrathful surprise. "To
Judge by the wny you talk one would
suppose It Is nil settled between you."
"It Is," answered Margery, with eyes
that never flinched before the angry
ones of her mint. "I promised John
to-night, coming home from church,
that I'd marry him as soon as he has n
home for me."
Miss Nancy fairly gasped for breath.
"You're a fool," she said, as soon as
sue could command her voice, "to take
up with that fellow when you might
marry the squire's nephew!"
"I wouldn't marry the squire's
nephew If he was the last man ou
earth," said Margery. "Look at him
alongside John Markham, aud I know
that down lu your heart you can't help
owning that lie's an insignificant apology for a man. All you can see to admire ln htm Is his money, I'm sure, nnd
If he had n thousand times more thun
lie has I'd have just as much contempt
for him ns I have now."
"You mny seo the dny when you'll
wish you had some of his money," said
Miss Nancy. "Walt till you're John
Mnrkhnm's wife nnd poor ns poverty
nnd thlngs'H look different to you. uf
course he thinks and you think that I'll
change my mind when I find out thnt I
can't prevent your marrying liini. But
you were uever more mistaken ln your
life. Marry that fellow and I'll see
that not a penny of mine goee to you."
"Please yourself about that," answer
ed Margery. "We dou't want your
money. We're both strong ami willing
to work, and we'll get along. Don't
worry nbout that.*'
"That sounds well, but you'll sing a
different tune by and by," sultl Miss
Nancy. "Just remember what I tell
you."
"All right, I will," replied Margery,
and then she went Up to her room, uot
lo think about what her uuut had said,
but about the things she had talked of
with her lover as they walked home
from church together.
One dny Miss Nancy decided to go .o
thc city to do some shopping. She was
always afraid of belug too late for the
trnln. nud generally arrived at the sla-
tlou at least balf an hour before It was
due. She did so ou this occasion, nud
as the day was a very warm one she
snt down on the platform ln lhe shade
of some large boxes of freight thut had
been unloaded there, thinking it more
comfortable there than In the stuffy
little waiting room.
Pretty soon she heard steps on the
platform, nnd presently voices from
the other side of the pile of boxes
reached her enrs.
"How is your matrimonial project
gelling along?" wns asked by one of
the uuseen parties. And a voice which
Miss Nancy recognized ns belonging
to the squire's nephew answered:
"It seems to haug lire just nt present. The fact is, the girl's got nnother
string to her bow. and the chances
would be against mo If It wasn't for the
fact that her mint favors my suit, because she thinks I'm going to get Uncle Amos' mouey, and she'd like to
unite the two properties. So I'm rather sweeter on the aunt nt present than
1 am ou the girl. If I get the girl nt all
It must be through the old lady's Influence, you see. The girl's a little daisy,
but tbe aunt's—well, she Isn't a daisy,
you can be sure of thai! It's a question
if having her In the family wouldn't be
paying a dear price for all her property,
but you see there's a chance of being
able lo shake her off after it little. I
happen to know that a uew railroad's
going through this place, and Ihe company will have to buy a piece ot land
she owns, and this land she Intends to
give to the girl ns a wedding present.
Now, just ns soon ns the road Is put
through—and It's sure to come—this
land will be worth more than all the
rest of the old lady's property. If the
girl gets a deed of It nnd I get the girl
I can sell It to the railroad company
and make a good big sum of money out
of It and we'll be Independent of the
aunt, and when thut happens, if It ever
does, I'll tell her to look out for her
affairs nnd I'll look out for mine. I'm
looking out now that she don't rind out
about the uew railroad scheme. I want
to make sure of the girl and the land
before 1 break the news to her."
Miss Nancy listened wllh ears nnd
eyes very wide open.
"Yes, when it happens, If it ever
does," she chuckled. "I dou't believe
you'll ever get the chance you're looking for, my smart young mnu! I don't
suppose I am a dnisy—I never thought
I wns!—but I rather guess I'm n match
for you, since I know what to do. I
dou't believe you'll hnve to shnke me
off. I think I'll do n little—or most—of
the shaking."
Just then the train came along, and
Miss Nancy got aboard of It without
being seen by the youug meu.
That evening, when she came home,
as luck would huve It, she met the
squire's nephew nt the station.
"If you're going home you might
walk along with me und help carry
some of my bundles," she said, in her
very pleasant manner. "I'm just about
tired out. I've beeu seeing to a good
deal of business to-day. I've had a
deed made out, giving Margery the
south forty ncres of the farm, nnd I've
been pricing carpets and furniture nnd
finding out how much It's going to cost
to set up a young couple ln housekeeping. Of course they won't need the
things right away, but I thought I'd
get some Idea of what the expense
would be."
"They—who do you mean?" asked
the young man In bewilderment.
"Why, Margery nnd Mr. Markham, of
course," answered Miss Nnncy. "Who
else should I mean?"
"You dou't mean to say you're going
to let your niece marry thnt fellow!"
cried the squire's nephew In surprise
nud consternation.
"Why, certainly," replied Miss Nnncy, ns If she hnd never had any other
Idea. "He's a nice young mnu. He's
got brains, nnd when he gets Margery
he'll get money, for the uew rnllrond's
going to muke the bind I've deeded her
worth a snug little fortune."
"I'd like to know bow you knew
about the new railroad!" cried tho astonished young mull.
"O, I keep posted on such matters,"
snld Miss Nnncy, looking very wise.
"But here we are nt my gate. Thank
you for bringing my bundles. Won't
you come ln?"
"No, not to-night," wns the gruff reply, nnd Miss Nancy chuckled ns thc
young man went his way.
"I guess I've got about even with
you," she sold, nodding her head after
his retreating figure. "I guess he was
about as much surprised as Margery'll
bc."
Her niece hud seen her, nud enme out
to meet her and help her with her bundles.
"Margery, I've got something to tell
you," "aid Miss Nnncy, anxious to nave
the matter disposed of. "I've thought
it all over, and I don't know but you're
right about John Markham. It Is foolish to let an old grudge stand in the
wny of young folks' happiness. I've
concluded to let you do ns you think
best, and I've hnd the south forty deeded to you, and when John gets you he'll
get tbat too, If you see fit to turn It over
to him. Anyway. It's yours to do just
what you please with."
"Why, Aunt Nancy!" cried Margery,
looking at ber as If she felt sure she
had gone crazy. "I thought you'd uever consent to our inaninge!"
"Folks change their minds sometimes," said Miss Nancy. "Thersl
there! Dou't hug tne so or I'll drop ills

road that sounds like John's. You'd
better go and tell hiin lire news, aud

NEW STYLES OF CHAINLESS   WHEELS.
MAN  DANGEROUS.
Statistics Show   He Is Apt to Commit
Crime ut 29.
It Is n singular fact, yet one sub- '■
sl..*itlnted   \iy   statistics,    thut   most
crime Is committed In New   Y'ork by
meu twenty-nine years old.    This is**
not only true of the lesser but ulso ot
the greater crimes, although n man Is I
presumed lo be ut lhat period of his
life uot only In the zenith of his phys- j
leal, but nlso in full and complete pos-
session of his mental powers, with a i
complete appreciation of   right    and
wrong  nnd   their   respective   eonse- i
quences.    This condition is u problem '.
which hns not been solved by the slu-
dent of criminology, nnd one which is
mnde the more complex by the fuel: j
that the nges of twenty-one, twenty- i
seven nnd forty-live years nearly equal
it, with the Intervening years showing
a far less percentage of crime.    It Is
Indeed peculiar that the criminal tendency should be so strong at twenty- I
nine, with no such Inclination, so far as
criminal statistics show, In as great a
degree for   the    succeeding    sixteen
years,  and   then another outburst of j
the animal In man.   This condition Is
found to be true by actual figures, aud j
ns all statistical computations at which j
average conditions are sought to be de- |
termlned nre arrived nt by this method,
so may the student of this subject, ns
well  as  Ihe  insurance  magnate who |
bases his rates on the general aver- j
age of losses in proporllon to the risks !
(aken, und does so with full safety,
employ il in solving the problem before
htm,   Charles K. Baker, chief clerk to i
Superintendent  Latbrop  of  the   New I
York bureau of statistics, has made this
subject one of close study, nnd will
Boon have completed a lable showing
this to be true.   He has already com- !
pleted oue relative to murderers serv-
iug life sentences ill the penal institutions, nnd ils figures bear out Ihe gen-
era] conclusion.   lie offers at this lime
no explanation for this, but hopes after
he hns exhausted the subject, so far as '•
the  presentation   of   figures   is   eon- !
cerned. to be able to sel forth reasons '
why these years should be productive
of the most crimes.
He Holes and Borrows.
Ftw monarchs have had to undergo
so many sorrows—public and private—
as tho Emperor Franz Joseph of Aus* i
trla, and no oue has ever borne misfortune with greater courage.   In his family he lost his first-born, a daughter, .
whom, though 6he died a little child,
he Is said never to have forgotten.   His
next brother, the Emperor Maximilian,
was executed In tlie prime of life by
the Mexicans.   The fate of his only son j
ls too tragic for more than un allusion.
In later days he has lost another
brother; a granddaughter eloped with a
young officer; his wife is In bad health;
his nephew and heir is an invalid nud
the next prince lu the line of succession is a scapegrace.
His public life has been one of Incessant toll and danger. Iu the early part
of his reign he suffered severely from
the dagger of a would-be assassin. He
waged war unsuccessfully with the
French In 18ofl and with the Prussians
in 1800. He hns been ousted from tier-
many, over which he once presided, j
and of which he formerly hoped to be
emperor, as his forefathers were. Aud
yet, iu spite of such defeats, no prince
is more beloved by his subjects. Indeed, his personality is the chief bond
by which his heterogeneous dominions
are kept together.
Recently the emperor completed his
67th year. His Imperial aud royal |
majesty was placed on the throne in
the revolutionary year of 1848, when
liis uncle Ferdinand abdicated, and his
fnthcr declined to take up the burden
of the crown. In point of seniority as n
sovereign lie ls second to Queen Victoria alone.

E VICHY bicycle rider Is interested in the ch.ilnless wheel, which now seems
to be tlio hike of the future. Already many forms of the new type of
wheel aro exhibited, Some of them are queer-looking affairs and can never
come Into practical use, but tests, more or less satisfactory, have been mnde of
four of these types, which will contest for Bupreinacy under the trying conditions
of actual use, One of these is a handsome wheel with a bevel gearing, enclosed
In a neat casing, and is thc result of n series ot experiments extending over several years. Another of them is bevel-geared, but differs in inlerntil consftuction
from the one just mentioned, One is ti wheel with three sprockets engaging one
nnother lu a direct line. Thero is n sprocket nn the crnnk nxle. similar lo lire
ordinary sprocket, except thnt It is much larger nnrl lite teeth tire square, The
next sprocket ill the line Is of lire same size nnd shape, ami tire third, which is on
the nxlo of the rear wheel, is smaller. The fourth of the most promising chalnless
wheels also lias three sprockets, but the center one is five or six times the size of
the two others.

The Birth of a Son Again Directs
Public Attention to Her.
The birth of a Bon to Mr. nnd Mrs.
Cleveland again directs the public attention to the former mistress of the
White House ln a degree which leaves
no room to doubt the place thut f e
holds ln the hearts of the American
people. It mny be truthfully snld that
no other woman ln thia country lias
ever occupied tne snmr. position t. at
Mrs. Cleveland bas, ami thut position
was created distinctly by herself. Other women have been mistresses of the
White House and greatly beloved by
the people for their grnelousness, goodness nnd beauty; but none of them, not
excepting even the famous Dolly Mutli-
Bon, cun go dowu ln history occupying
the snme position that must be accorded to Mrs. Cleveland,
When Mrs. Cleveland became mistress of lhe White House she was, comparatively speaking, an untried girl,
and tbe duties immediately devolving
upon her were of such a nature that the
most skillful and highly trained worn-
jn of society might hnve quailed before
third little girl, was born at way tables iu July, lSOii, and consequently is
now over 2 years old. The addition of
tlie boy lo the family fills the measure
of tho Clevehinds' happiness, for lie
was the one consummation devoutly
wished by both parents.
In Ihe training of her children Mrs.
Cleveland has carefully guarded
against the dangers of environment,
keeping (hem carefully away from thai
atmosphere of flattery and attentions
which would naturally develop wrong
Ideas In the little ones. But slill she
has been careful that they are kept
from seclusion, and many Utile friends
were constantly on hand to play wilh
them while nt Ihe White House. Mrs.
Cleveland is a. believer iu Hn' kindergarten nnd maintained one while at the
While House, under the charge of Miss
Mary WlUnrd, where lhe children, in
company with nbout a do/.eu little girls,
woro daily taught.

Inexperience, through her native good
sense,'developed by thorough education
nnd her natural sweetness of disposition and goodness of heart, ripened by
a broad Christianity, she entered upon
the discbarge of those duties lu a wny
that won not only the respect, tho admiration and the love of our own people, but of tbc whole civilized world.
Not one mistake did she make while
occupying hcr trying position, and not
a criticism worthy of consideration
was ever made of li r conduct on any
occasion.
Although delightful ns a hostess and
enchanting ns a friend, It Is by tbe
light of neither of those virtues thatl
we see her at her best. Motherhood, j
the supreme test of the nobler and
higher nature of a woman, so developed nnd Illustrated her Hue character
aB to cause her to shine forth with peculiar liiBter ln a nation noted for lis
excellent motherhood. There wns no
posing about it, nothing forced for
show or pnrnded for effect. She Is fnr
too sincere nnd noble n woman for anything of thnt kind, nnd Ihe reason why
she has devoted herself so thoroughly
to her children Is Hint she fell il n duly,
imperative, but fnr more pleasant than
the discharge ot mechanical social
functions. But still, at the sutno time.
no complaint was ever made thnt she
neglected any soclnl duties.
She 1b now the mother of four children. Little Ruth, the eldest, wns born
ln New Y'ork on Oct. 3, 181)1, and Is

CIVIC TICKET,
On llie Ijth of January nest the decors of tli,s city will be called upon lo
select a inayor and counc.l o represent
them in the transaction of lite business
of theeity for the enduing year.   At this
legislature  11  is the propjsed amend- j._,nctjon in the life ol   this  promi-inf
ment to tVre present mineral ac raisin
the cost of recording claims, There has
becn a threat deal said about this in tunny
of the most prominent newspapers ol the
province, and even Mr, Carlyle, tho
provincial Mineralogist, it is asserted,
has proclaimed his behef tb.tt such a
chmge in the act is necessary, baseing
his opinion upon th: la.:t thai there are
large numbers of 11 aims in all of the
mining divisions of the province, whicli
have been taken up ty poor men. who
have been unable, or unwilling to do the
ns.-essraent woik rtc| rred by law, a: d
who have conse<-ter.tlv bad recourse to
the more cheap plan of re-loearing.
That this system has its faultB no one
will deny, but perfection is j 1st as hard
to find among prospectors, as other
classes, newspaper men an l mining ex-
por'.s included.
Ai an offset tothisardto oven mttters
up for the benefit of the lab rring man,
the chute in the present act, compelling
tuns to purchase a miner's license at a
cost of five dollars before he is legally
en itled to accept work on auy minG, or
work connected with lhe opening cf a
mme, is 10 be struck out. There is no
man possessed of .1 grain of common
sense that will object to this, for the
simple reason that the collection of this
live dollars license (oe Irom an ordinaty
laborer, or irom an' miner employed in
01 aoout a mine, is an indefensible imposition, It will th-'rofure be apparent
th it the removal of this section of the
act, entirely, is not only a matter of ne
cesslty, but one of justice, unless employees in ..u-v nulls and factories, and
on ranches arc to bc forced to pay a the
dollar license too, to entitle them to legal
employment. The .vholc thing rs utter y
abominable, and equally as undefensibt..
as highway robbery, and the man or
newspaper who rays thut the couulry
should be compen atcd lor its removal,
bv the imposition nf another charge
leveled against the s.inie class of men, exhibits the most contemptible igno
raace. The worst ci it all i-, that these
are the men who are crying out loudest
for ''justice for the poor man,"
Did these champions of roform ever
stop to consider who the men are tha:
first penetrated this wilderness and
bro rght the little order outot chaos, that
is iu it now? If they do they will recognize the fact that it was not the capitalist, or the professional promotor, or the
mining experts who did it. but the hard
muscled, tough living, fearless prospector, who many a time when he had
found a claim he considered worth staking had the hardest kind of work to
raise two dollars and lifry cents to pay
ine legal registration fees, to make the
find his for one year; and when he lai
done tha1, it was often necessary for him
lo go back long distances to lind employment, befote he was able to get
grub and powder and tools lo do his annual assessment with. T<;e prospectors
are the men who make it possible for the
proprietors of the mining journals of
this country to live here at all; .vho have
made fortunes fir capitalists and pro
moters, mil furnish employment for
mining experts,—even Mr, Carlyle bim-
ti If would doubtless sub be in Tlonlr.nl,
or Colorado or some where else o-rt side
ol liritish Columbia if it was n< t for the
workoi these men, to whom at timer.
two dollars and fifty cents was an al.
mast impossible sum.
And those same prospectors are th:
men who to-day are not a cent tbe richer
fnr all their hard work and on whose
calling it is proposed to lay an embargo
that will effectually choke them off, or
in case tbey discover auy thing oT value,
[0 ce Ihem to t ome in and mike terms
with the men possessed of money, be

of vacant mineral ground in the Province of li. C, simply because only a

conditions, lhat these "Friends of thc

CASCADE WATER POWER SOLD.
An English Company will Build an Electric

Word comes from Cascade City to lhe
effect that the "Cascade Development
Company" at that place has sold their
water power interests to an English
company for a largo sum ol mouey,
(1,000 being paid last Satuidayat Cas
r aie City as a percentage of the purchase money. By the terms of this deal
the purchasers of these water rights are
to expen-l some Sjo.coo in patting in an
electric generating p'ant at the Falls
and artual work on this system must be

Thit the clo;i.iK of tbis deal means

An Idiotic Editor.
Under the title "An 1 iotic Boundary"
the Bcribe who p e-.idee over the destinies oi the Boundary Creek Times, in a
scurrilous article in the last issue of that
paper, claim 1 that Foutlh cf July creek
should be tho boundary line between
Grand Forks and Kettle River Mining
Division. To show how absolutely idiotic
the contention is, it is only necessary to
mention the fact tha: if Fourth of July
creek were mide the boundary between
the two divisions, it would mean lhat
claims staked within live miles of the
Grand Forts oflice would have to be
recorded at Midway, twenty-forur miles
distant, thedoiocof which would entail a
trip over the B .tiruiary mountain range
to reach the Midway oITi :e, no easy
thing under the most favorable circumstances.
The individual who ii responsible for
this idiotic claim seems to want more ol
the earth than he is likely to get for a
while.

Important Announcement by
Woodhouse, M. C.
Alfred
THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   COUNTRY.
Qrand   Forks to be Alade a Point  of
riuch Importance by the Erection
of Reduction Woiks.
At an extraordinary meelingof the
Recordia Syndicate held recently in
London, the Boundary country and
(irand Forks, in particular, received
particular notice. The chairman, Mr.
W. A. Broiuwich, in e> plaining the tIf c
of the meeting said, "British Columbia
undoubtedly contains a vast amount of
mineral wealth, nnd as it becomes more
and more opened up by railways it will
become one of the greatest miniug countries of tie world, and I trust that this
company will reap the advantages of
being early in the field. There iB another point in favor of British Columbia
which should not be overlooked; lhat is,
urrimpo lant point," concluded Mr.
Woodhouse, "was that the Canadian
himself, who had been non-cornnittal
with regard to mining in the past,
seemed now ready lo pledge his last
jiariiient in order to participate in whai
heioirsidend w s o;ngtr.lj^a rapidru.-h
-n mining. A'lo'fcur < onsirleration was
trie aclivi'y of their friends tbe Americans. He thought this blight and bountiful British Columbii was thy heritage
uf ihe Br ton a.id it was to be regretted
it, owing to the slowness o; Briti b investors ,it should t-c allowed to slip lo
any large extent out of their hands."
Theie is nothing moie certain than
tbat lhe people ol the United Kingdom
are now taking a lively interest in the
mineral wealth of this Province and this
is not a matter for wonder when we con-
sider tbat within the past three years,

The merchants ami citizen*t of Rossland are agitating the building of a
wagon road from that city to Cascade
City 10 Conner.t with Ihe waj-on road between Marcus and the Boundary coun

thit lhe building ol this road would
place Rossland in n position to control the

of Ihc.usandi of dollars monthly in lhal

Mr. Woodhouse said, "He thought be

tbat the time he has spent in British
Columbia in their interests has not been
wasted. He left this country early in
April wilh Mr. M tuns in order to learn
by actual observation whether the reported richness of tbe mineral wealth of
British Columbia ciuld be absolutely
corroborated by practical inspection.
Alter traveling through the princpal
mining centers cf the West Kootenay
district be came to the conclusion that
although Rossland undoubtedly offered
very great mineral wealth, perhaps the
center of greater advantages would rest
more particularly in the Baundaiy district. After very careful inspection of
niiturous properties,    tu:y  solected
dtviloi ment of thc mints, and erection
of smeltingworks, and townsites, we begin 10 real z : that the exceeding richness of lhe country has at least secured
the attention it certainly deserves.
That the expenditure of this capital will
be imiiiydiatl/ profitable is absolutely
certain* while the rapid development
thus as-.ured will bring the Boundary
country, where this company proposes
to operate, to the very forefront among
the grtat mining centers of the world.

I PREPARING TO BUILD.
The Spokane Falls & Northe n Railway
Give Notice of Application for a Charter.
The S aokane Palls and Northern railway conrpanv, through their salicitois
Mesrrs Biriwll, Irv ng & Duff, are ap-
in various options of great extent and . p'ying for a cha-ter to enable them to
value, comprising town sites, thousands   construct a line of railway commencing
of acres of land, water rights and thousands of acres of coal area—a coal lhat
has been proved by analysis to be eq ial
to any that has b en produced in that
p mion ol British Columbia for cooking
and fuel p irpjses. In conjrir.ction with
the gentlemen to v horn he bad referred
they had secured 100 acres of 'and for a
smelter site. In addition lo tha' they
had secured goo acres for certain, with
the probabil.ty of another 1000 acres
around the smeller site, and Ihey had
also tbe option of purchase of the present town of Grand Porks, which to-day
was not only incorporated but bad its
mayor and corporation.
The reason they had s-lected Qrand
Porks as a center (or sin. Ling woiks
was that several railways were contemplated, so i.e of tbem having been surveyed, which from tbo charact* r of the
cmntry must center at or pass through
that city. Regaiding the proposed
smelling wo ks, be might mentitn that
they had advanced so far in the matti r
that a scheme had been roughly drawn
up, and had been privately ihown to
influential capitalists, who has given the
most favorable consideration to the
proposition It woild b", be though',
a really good t'.lng, and it would be a

ready it contains two incorporated municipalities, Grand Forks and Greenwood, while thore are a dt zen fanning
hamlets and a score of mining camps.
Among tne principal center- in the district are Grand Forks, Rock Creek, Cas-
j cade City, Camp M'Kinney, Boundary,
Anaconda and Greenwood. It is a reasonable figure lo say that the present
to:al population is 2,000, and tbe entire
territory is enjoying a stc.dy, prosperous growth that promises to increase
with a rush next year. This estimate
does not include the portion of tbe
Boundary country that receives its supplies v a Okanogan lakt; hut it does include a territory that is dependent for
every pound of flour, for every yard of
ricth, for every shinglo nail, upon thc
United States, and every article of the
kind comes in over the  Marcus road.
.The Commerce of 1,500 People.
When one comes to look at it closely,
the comme ce of 1,500 people is a big
thing, and the town which secures it is
fortunate. Fifteen hundred people consume a good deal of food and wear out
a lot of clothing every month. Tho agricultural portion of such a community
requires a large amount of farm implements. The logg'ng industry demands
saws, axes and chains without number.
As for the mining machinery, powder
and candles, caps and steal, not to mention o'her supplies now going into the
district.
$10,000 a Month For Supplies.
All of this merchandise represents a
great deal of money. It is perfectly
sale to say that the territory indicated
sends out $10,000 every month for the
supplies that it imports. During the
coming year this figurn willbecnnsidera
bly increased, but leave it at 510,003 per
month, and during the course of a yea*-
that amounts to ihe tidy sum of $120,000
As wo said before, all of that money is
spent with the merchants of the United
States. Th: business men of British
Columbia receives not a penny of it.
■\ll this great q-ianti'y of goods i =
freighted .n via Marcus, Wash, up to
Cascade City, thence to the various
poin's in the district. The sum for tnul
ing alone is a serious item, for the business gives employment to scores of m-in,
in the capacities of freight handlers,
teamsters, blacksmiths, stable men anl
the like. As matters s'and at present,
all this important packing indust-y, is
located in the United St<te<=, and the
little town of Marcus receives tbe benefit
of it.
Should Be a Road From Rossland.
This condition of things exists only
because there is no road from Rowland
to Cascade Ci y. Were a proper highway to be constructed from here to that
po'nt, the business of the entire Boundary district would be opened up to
Rossland, and this city could become
the most important wholesale and
freighting center in Southern British
Columbia. In the nature nf thintrs,
Rossland should be the outfiting point
for ihe B m nd ary.
It Is on Canadian Soil.
In the first place this is on Canadian
soil, and goods could be delivered from
here into that district duty free, while at
present all goods, coming as they do
from the States, rfxresstate payment of
a heavy rate of costu\ns on crossing the
line. This item alone is a sert -us one,
and were a road once opened up between here and the Boundary, the item
of duty would effectually ■ urn the
greater part of the present traffic to this
city. Then, too, Rossland is located on
two lines of railways and is connected
with the trans-continental lines of Canada and the Slates, while Marcus, the
f)resent seat of the Boundary trade, is
ocated only on a single line, and is thus
debarred from the advantages of com
petition, as well as direct communication with the norih
A  Shorter Line.
Then, too, and  not least m  importance, is the  fact that  u ioid from  here
From Ma-cus to Cascade City is 38

A Short Wagon Road Needed.
All that is needed to open up this
great territory to tho merchants and
teamsters of Rossland is merely a stretch
was made some little time ago.

carried to rr successful termination, will

to save anil utilize the by-produots of gas,

An important mining ileal in tlie Moose
Lake camp, in Montana, has been made,
J, 1'. Dunn, .Ir-lin T. Cadle and Thomas
McGlauflin having bonded to L. J. Highland tlie (Inlil Hill and Abe Lincoln mining claims. These claims adjoin what is
known as the Cadle property. Tile conditions of thr' bond provide that Mr. Highland must erect a live-stamp mill on tlie
properties additional stamps on or before
July 1. lsiis. In addition to this he pays
Ihe owners $50,000. Should lie fnil to
comply wilh tire terms of the bond, then
he forfeits his mill anil sueh payments as j
he may have made. What looks particularly good about this deal is that the
two urines named are among the lirst
struck iu the camp.
Denver Mini.
Cold receipts nt the Denver braneh
mint for tlie half month which ended October 15 show a gain of 111 per cent over
the corresponding period of 1890. The
total for the two weeks reached $052/
724.37, compared witli $303,854.38 for the
first half of October, 1SD0. The difference
in favor of tlie present month reads $348,-
Siili.lill. The number of smelters contributing is the same as last lear. The gain
i.s due largely to the increased capacity
of the cyanide, chlorinatlon nnd stamp
mills which handle tlie lower g**nde of
ore.

That southern Oregon, particularly
Josephine county, is rapidly coming to

but few* giants operated in this district
nnd at the present timo there nre at

James Hays, the pioneer mining man of
tliat camp, lias just closed n deal with a
Northport syndicate, with which the Le
Lol people nre largely identified, for the
sale of a group of claims located on the

Hays, Palmer and Mason, nnd tlio Hunter and Chalincey, owned by Cliingrenil
and tlie Nelson estate. The consideration
is said to be $15,000. The last two claims
were discovered anil located ill the spring
of 1800. 'Ihere is un 180-foot tunnel on
the Wihte Cap, besides shafts and n short
tunnel and sliufls on the Hunter. The
ore is a largely silver one, witli paying
quantities of lead, copper nnd gold.

Artilt Tells Why He Fancies That
Color Above Other,,.
We went to our favorite bench In
the park, sitting so we could view the
lake. I watched my artist friend who
bad asked me io lake a quiet stroll
with blui.
I tried to open conversation by remarking:
"Come, now, let us play 'truth upou
honor' for one-half hour."
"Very well; what shall the topic be'/"
"Ob, anything from the Humphrey
bills to the questiou, Why bas red hail*
always been looked upon In nil ages
with nversion?"
"Red balr!" exclaimed he. "There's
no such thing. Don't let anyone convince you that there ls such u thing as
real red hair. What people call red
halt* Is a mixture of two or three shades
of yellow and brown. Call It auburn
or Titian."
I saw thut my friend wus getting a
fur away look and would soon become
reminiscent.   He continued:
"I never know a red-haired girl to be
stupid. She Ih always Interesting,
quick of action, quick of speech, quick
to resent, quick to forgive, and above
all, sympathetic. Kbo mukes mauy
bright speeches, nud sometimes with
the greatest ualvotle. For Instance, I
knew n charming young lady, a goldeu-
hulred belle, who boasts a family crest
over SIX) yean old, whose wit Is equaled only by her love of fun. She Is
somewhat religiously inclined. To a
young gentleman who earnestly entreated her lo waltz the other evening,
she returned with the startling negative: 'I'll be damned If 1 do.' Of course,
she meant It as u slntcmeut, not us an
asseveration.
"Hed ball* brings with It great senBl-
blllly. When the owner has blue eyes
aud brown brows nud lashes she Is of a
sentimental turn of mind and always
musical. Brown eyes and dark lashes
are noted for their beauty, and often develop great dramatic talent. Hed hnlr
always goes with strong emotions, mid
the red-haired girl laughs and cries at
lhe theater, while her dnrk-halred sister loses half of life by being more dignified and less appreciative. Yes,"
sighed my friend, meditatively. "She
Is a lovable darling when she likes you,
but sharper than a two-edged sword
when she doesn't."
I looked st my artist frleud ln utter
astonishment and wondered why my
innocent remark hud culled for so much
enthusiasm, However, I wns rather
pleased than otherwise, as my own hnlr
barely escaped the suspicious color.
"1 see there Is no room for argument
here," I ventured to remark.
"Well, no," he laughingly replied,
"but I'll tell you something for your
owu consolation. When I wns abroad
last year I came ncross a red-haired
Club lu Vienna and to prevent fraudulent admissions every candidate was
.lillgeil to wash his hair ln hot water
before the committee."
"Your apology Is accepted," I remarked.
"Oh," said my artist frleud, "I am
fust freeing my mind."

Oxford Bible Paper.
The paper making of Oxford BlbleB
Is a specially Important and luterestlug
part of the work, says Chambers' Journal. At Wolvercote, a mile or two out
jf Oxford, the university bas a largo
mill for the supply of Its own requirements. A good deal of the paper they
turn out here ls made of old ships' sails,
the material of which, after battling
with storms Iii all quarters of the
world, come here for the purpose of being made Into paper, printed in almost
every language under heaven and
bound up In volumes, to be again scattered far and wide Into ull the uttermost ends of Ibe earth.
This Wolvercote paper has much to
do with the great reputation that Oxford lias acquired In the production of

Twenty years ngo nud moro the management here lilt on n valuable Invention ln paper making and ever since
their "India paper" has been the envy
and puisne of manufacturers all over
tbe kingdom. There arc said to be only
three persons living who know the secret of Its make, and, though the process has never ben legally protected
and all the world is free to Imitate the
extremely thin but thoroughly opnquo
and wonderfully strong nud durable
paper of the best Oxford Bibles, If they
only know how, nil the world his hitherto quite fulled to do so.
It Is thin us tissue, but perfectly
opaque nud so strong that a strip of It
three Inches wide has proved to be
capable of sustaining a quarter of n
hundredweight. Over 100 works and
editions are now printed on this paper.
This speclnl advantage bus very largely
helped Oxford to retain the lending position which It originally gained by being nearly the first, If not quite the lirst,

the prestige of Its name.

An Everyday Hero.
This is the story of a brave deed that
strong hearts feared to do; a story of a
mother's anguish changed to joy and
tlie saving of the life ot a little child.
It all happened lu tnis wny:
Little Tlmmy Dillon lives with bis
parents at 811 Coy street, Aruiourdale.
While playing about the cistern yesterday evening be fell Into the water.
His cries for assistance brought a large
yrowd of meu nnd women. Tbe mother
was almost frantic with grief nnd
pleaded with the men to snve the child.
The men stood around the cistern, but
when they looked Into the black depths,
not even the sight of the child struggling for Its life moved them to make
further elforts to save it than to throw
ropes down to It. The child, however,
was too frightened to grasp the ropes
and sank the third time, while the
mother abandoned herself to the wildest grief.
Then the hero came. Ills name ls
Jack Humbo and he was a passenger
on a passing car. He saw the excited
crowd and swung off tbe car to seo
what was the matter. He no sooner
took In the situation than without a
moment's hesitation he sprang Into the
cistern. It wns exceedingly difficult
for hi in to dive, but he managed to
reach the bottom of the cistern nud
grasped the child, raising It to the surface. Then the bravo men who stood
about threw ropes to him nnd he and
the child were lifted out.
The best part of the story of this
brave man Is that the ehlia recovered
consclousuess, despite the fact that It
had sunk for the third time. The moth-
;r wns almost overcome with joy, which
had so suddenly supplanted grief. The
people ure now talking of taking up a
subscription to buy a medal or some
other testimonial as a reward for Ram-
bo's bravery.—Kansas City Journal.

About Perfumes.
The perfumes which are tbe most
agreeable to the senses are uot always
lhe most helpful lo the nerves, says tliu
Philadelphia Times, Ambergris, for Instance, Is positively offensive to many,
yet It Is said to possess a wonderful
power of clearing the brain and driving nwny those evil spirits known ns
the "blues." (In the other band, attar
of roses, with the suggestion of glowing suns and gorgeous eastern colors,
predisposes ouo lo tears. A fnlnt odor
of musk nets ns a tonic, while civet
brings drowsiness of soul, for which
the best antidote Is the pungent odor
of sandalwood. The fragrance of citron
Is ns soothing to nervous people ns far-
off music.
Many perfumes delightful ln the open
air become particularly disagreeable
ln a close room. A whole evening can
be spoiled by the presence ot tuberoses
or lilies ln a reception room. Their
strong fragrance has a very bad effect.
Magnolia blossoms, too, have a delightful perfume In their native grove, but
woe to her who sleeps through the
night with a single blossom on ber pillow. There are many fragrant flowers,
such as carnations, clove pinks, sweet-
brier and apple blossoms, that are as
beneficial as they are sweet scented.
A vivid perfume Is nearly always
bracing, while a subtle one ls generally
enervating. One may become positively intoxicated by the odor of the peach,
almond, wild cherry and other blossoms of the same class, because they
eontaln a suggestion of prusslc acid.

however, so the party proceeded to the
White house, whore breakfast was had.
In the middle nf the forenoon a message

The Elephant Mintled the Baby.
Some time before an elephant buut
my husband was at u station In Bengal. His work kept him out nearly all
day, nnd, being 111, 1 used to lie for
hours In n long garden chair on the
veranda, too weak to rend or enjoy
any more exciting amusement than my
eyes supplied to me.
We had three elephants for our tents
and baggage; and oue dear creature
used to feed from my bands every day
nnd seined ns gentle ns u pet dog or
cut.
One of our government chaprnsls
wus particularly devoted to ber and
Invariably slinred his meal of fruit or
flower cakes witli his dumb friend. On
a particularly hot dny the chaprasi, to
my surprise, placed his tiny child cf
six months nt the elephant's feet,
warning lier expressively Hint the In-
fnnt wns In her charge nnd wns to ho
cared for till bis return. I myself wus
an eye-witness of her wonderful sagacity. Large bnnnnn trees und tig trees
grew around, nnd to my surprise the
elephant broke off one of the former's
spreading leaves, held It like a fan lu
ber trunk, and from time to time gracefully waved It over the slumbering
child, whether to temper the bent of
the atmosphere or to keep off files I am
unable io Bay. The gentle way lu
which she moved her feet over the
child and ncross to each side astonished me. I sent for n white louf and
some oranges, and calling ber by unme
(she wns never chained) tried In vnin
to tempt hcr to my side on Hie low
veranda. Nothing would induce her to
leave her charge. Tbe wnrm nil* nud
the monotonous wnve of the swinging
fan overpowered me wllh drowsiness,
to which I yielded; and after a sleep of
some duration 1 was awakened by
quiet, subdued snorts beside me. To

had just returned to bis offspring, nud
the elephant stood near the veranda

THE CARETAKER.
Caretaker Is a word adopted Into modern use and menns one who takes caro
of, and In very generally applied to thoso
employed to take care of things committed to their keeping. The way some people have of taking care of themselves ls
very suggestive of lhe need of a caretaker. The human body to such ls a
mansion filled with precious things un-
cared for, where thieves may break In
an.l rust doth corrupt. Pains and ache-s
arc thieves, and tho body left uneared for
to their spoilage will be robbed of all Its
comforts and despoiled of its pence of
mind and happiness. It ls a happy
thought to look upon St. Jacob's Oil as a
caretaker, to employ it as a watchman
against intruders. There Is hardly an
ache, from a toothache to a toeache, that
It can't take cure of and effect a cure,
and pains the most violent are conquered
by Us use. Its office as a caretaker is to
prevent the spread of aches and pains
Into a chronic stage. Keep a bottle of It
In the handiest place and be assured of
