The   inevitable   has  ocenred  at
Goldlield,   The crowd is leaving and
and tradesmen  arc  panic  striekcti.
That does not mean that the camp is
no pood    There seems to be no doubt
that it is a.- greut and rich mining
region.   Thc in >b is merely moving
on.   ■ A eorres-randent writes from
there as follows: The town of Gold-
field is experiencing its first dull per- .
iod...    During   the   past    eighteen
months tlie camp bas been'the Mecca
toward which thousands ha\e turned
their laces, and there has hardly beon
a-day-iis-iliat-time-or.-whieh some big^
sale has not been,made.   Now that a
dull period has come the people do
riot know what  to make of ,it and
many ot them arc becoming panic -
Btrlcken.     Every man who leaves
.udds spmetbing'ito the apparently al- .
arming condition, and there seems to
bsnlmosta pnnictogct safely from
under.   Real estate", has- gone down
below par, stocks nre dull, rentals
have dropped out ol sight and there
are several "closing-ont sale" signs
to be s;en on tho streets.    Tho explanation is simple   enough.     Thc
camp has grown In ndvnnce of tho
district, and now that Hullfrog offers
so many more enticing propositions,
there lias begun a stampede to the
newer camp.   It ia also noteworthy,
that a great mnny, 'hundreds of persons all over thc country have Uo*
tcrrcd" I rotn coming in hereon account of tho reports that thoro woro
epidemics of sickness in Tonopah and
(foldflehl.   In short thero are hundreds going out and none coming in.

Captain Mallcy of the Fourteenth
infantry tells several stories 01" the
Irishman as a soldier. "One illustrates
the manner" in which "Ki Ily'and'

galuting an American Officer, said
in the strongest brogue: "Anycliar.ce

think it's about all up with us wan."
Another is of, a captain who had
just got a new company. Looking
(lown.the_ muster roll, he saw the
names run O'Brien, Maloney, Murphy,
Sullivan, 0'l'*lahcrty, and so'on. ."Is
pvery man in this company Irish?"
said the captain to the sergeant.

er thc 50.000 tourists spend in excess
of $10,000,003 in travelling, and this

not the slightest cause for complaint.
Spain boasts probably the longest
■jawsuit in thc world. It began in
1317, and is still subjudico. The
pase, which concerns a ponsion, is be-
, fween the Marquis de Viena and the
Count Torress dc Cabrera, and the
accumulated sum in dispute would
have reached labulou? millions had
pot four centuries of attorneys, barrl-s
(urn, and court officials taken consirl
ei'cible measures of appropriiuion to
prevent tho sum becoming unwieldy,
"jn 1872 the case was, in the duMber
ate iiv'nd of Spanish jurisprudence;,

but circiunBtiinces every your iirosi-
which necessitated its being set back

A strikcor a lockout proclamation,
is a declaration of war.   "War is the
result'of barbarism on one side or the

Caput's and Napoleons of thc military

labor in the field of Industry.
. • For  months there   has existed  in
Chicago, and Manchuria', conditions
which givo the lie to our boasted civilization.   In a great part-of the world
the voice of Peace cannot be heard
because of the shout of battle and
roar of fire-breathing, deat^dcaling
instruments ot war set to hellish music by the hand of man who stands at
the head of the'Greck Church.   This
representative of Christ wlioss lowly

"peace and good will to men,' 'is engaged in a war of conq-ia-st and criminal aggression, and getting sixteen

heathen .Lips.   It is. what ought to
.happen to any nation .who unshealhs
thc sword of war in thc name of Christ
or civilization.    -When Christianity
and civilization fail to stand for peace,
no earthly meaning can be attached
to the terms.   "We mean pence at all

This ia the program and plot by which

I am neither capitalist nor wage
earner, and my judgement is not
warped by sellish interest. As an
unprejudiced by-stander I want to
register a protest against further war
between Capital and Labor, Any
elfurt on the part ot Capital to rob
labor of the inherent right to organize for its protection, wilUead to revolution. Thc movement led by Job,
and festered by the "Walsh-Parry
typo of capitalists is a breeder of anarchy and hell on earth. It-should
be checked now. Labor organisations ■ should get .rid of fire brand
leaders and place men of brains on
gUiird. Tho voice of reason and
justice must be heard in the councils
of both capital .and labor. Humanity
has claims whioh both must respect.
The life of the "Republic is involved
in this controversy. A nation of dependents must.not curse'the land of
Washington and Lincoln. The
creators'of wealth have a right to life,
not mere existence; to liberty and
the privilege, not only to pursue, but
a chance, to overtake happiness this
.side of the grave. Every, man, who
reads and thinks must surely know
lhat tlie cuiuinnat-on ofthe present
conditions, will either result iii industrial slavery for the masses, or a"
revolution and a reign of terror such
as France never knew'. "_Jt is peaceful revolutiun along humane lines  or

This lad in llie wheat season, -drove
up to the mille.r's and submitted a-hand-
. ful .of wheat. •'.**•
s The "miller studied tlie wheat" attentively, and then said to the bojv:
How much lias your father got of
this ? '     ' .    "      ,
He ain't got no more like it, lhe boy
answered. He's been all morning
picking that out.
Senator Gallingcr'in an attack on an
opponent's argument, said:
My friend is ingenuous. His ingenuousness, though, reflects no credit oil
him.' Il is like the ingenuousness of
a child I know.
The father of the child  was  ill.    He
had an ailment wherein ftuit   was pre-
-^ scribed. , livery  morning, on   a   table
beside liis bed, there was placed a, delicious basket of fresh fruit—cherries,
plums,   white "grapes,  oranges,—and
every  morning   the   child   came   and
talked to him," looking covetously   the
while at tlie. array of luscious fruit.   •
1    One morning,   noticing   the child's
longing looks toward the fruit  basket,
' 'the father said:
You wouldn't take that fruit away
from your poor, sick father would you?
No, the child answered. I wouldn't
but—very slowly—1 tell a story when 1

Barney Oldfield, the aulomobilist,

A Cruel Experiment
Miss listelle Reel, the general superintendent of Ihe government's Indian
schools, was talking aliout cruelty,
Cruelty, she said, is hick of imagination, It isn't true thai onlv savages
are cruel. Children, till they have
L'iiriH-al to think, are cruel invariably.
Lei me tell you aboul a little hoy:
To this liltie bov there were given two
images of plaster, coaled on the otn-
side wilh pink sugar. Me wanted ' to
eat the images, hut lie was warned on
no account to do so,
They are poison, he told, If you
eat (hem, you will die.
However ihe liille hoy was dubious.
Jle had been cheated before this by
grown-up people. Day after dny he
asked if he migli not eat (he images,
Finally he had a young friend, Richard
Howe, to spend the day will) him, and
lhat night it was discovered that one of
the images had disappeared,
His mother, nearly frantic, rushc.1 To
Harold, she said, where is lhat pink
image ,-•
Harold frowned as he answered de-
I gave it to Richard Howe, and if
he's alive lo-niorrow I'm jfoing to cat
the other one myself.

There   was   a   man, he said, a well

that the handle broke, and it heap of

rolled out over the floor.
Thc guest and the porter began to
pack ttiejc lhiug:i into the bu:t ag.titi.
Tho pn-prietor, Mantling hy, noticed
tiinoiig them an odd contrivance—
ropes, a block and tackle, nml a big
steel hook--and he pointed lo this con-

* What have you there?
Thai, said the guest, is a patent" fire
escape. I never travel without it. In
case.of-fire, I can, with'this invention,,

Tlie landlord frowned.
Our terms for guests with fire escapes, sir, he said, are invariably cash

;.   .. Twill run 2000 Years	
It was recently announced that- Rich-,
aid Slrutt, ijpn of Lord Rayleigh, had
invented a clock that would  run   2000
rl        . ss»
years. The invention-is based on the
fact' thai radiations .from the strange
new chemical, radium, have power to
electrify metals with which they come in
contact. Two pieces of gold-leaf joined
at one end and suspended in lhe presence of a small quantity of radium,
gradually becoming electrified, and
spread apart thru, mutual repulsion
until they touch the walls of the receiving., vessel when they discharge the
electricity and fall back,-only to repeat
the process again and again. . Obviously such a mechanism would continue to
operate until tlie material of which il is
composed is worn out, or until ils rad-
iuin,rays are exhausted. According 10
the rough estimates 111118" far attained
a quantity of radium would require al
least 2,000 years. It is said ilii it Sir
William Ramsay has declared that a
practical clock can be constructed with
motive power.
Sucli a mechanism as ibis, in its present stage, is obviously only a laboratory toy, but it suggests interesting pos-
ibililies.- Such a clock is an engine in
miniature.'. Supplied with its quantity
of practical incshaustable fuel, it sets
to work and becomes for all practical
purposes a  perpctual-niotion -machine."

Tho  Wily   Chicken-Raiser
"At a Clover Club dinner, said a Phil-
adelphian, Charles M. Schwab- told a
story about an old man in Loretto.
Mr. Schwab said tbat this old man
had,a hobby of raising fine chickens.
In his handsome chicken runs, wilh
their netting of silver wire and their
floor of clean white sand, beautiful and
rare birds livedo The Loretto' people
often, came lo the old man to buy settings of eggs. He charged them always, for these settings, a fairly high

direct for .setting  purposes,   the   eggs
cost 20-ccnls'apiccc.   'Bought-through
the grocer, they only cost 30  cents  a
One season the old man displayed
some unusually line chickens thai took
•prizes everywhere. His lownfolk decided that they too would- raise these
chickens, and ihcy flocked to' him for
sellings. Hut his price was so high
that only one or two would pay it.''.'
. Those who wouldn't pay it' laughed.

llie better .qf thc" old 'man, and they
wondered wliy tlie Vuse 'had not. oiN
curcd lo'lheni before. The .new eggs
were a' little peculiar'in appearance,
experts such as the L'orclio chicken
growers were, could easily tell Ihem
from ordinary eggs; and every week* a
large hutch, of them appeared "in Ihe
grocer's shop.
The experts prat-ended lo buy their
settings of lhe new breed of chickens
from the grocer at eating prices instead
of from the old man al breeding ones,
Day hy day a group of esperls could he

baskets of eggs with anxious care, selecting from ordinary eggs those nf the
new breed, News ofthe mailer came
to the old, man, and, (hough he seemed
a litllo hurl for none of the * eggs that
they had bought from (he grocer

There was a general disappointment
in cliicken-i'atising circles,
Someone told lhe old man aboul the
disappointment, and he expressed no
surprise.    He only said.
They should come lo me for their
