Of 3,S00 convicts in the  fitate penitentiary of Texas there is  riot a printer or newspaper man, while  there are ministers, doctors, bankers,  barbers,.photographers, and members  bf other professions and callings.

'A Bunko "tUnIng Oamoi       ,  From the land o�� the midnight sun  pomes a story which reveals that all of  the Dawson miners are not honest.  There was one miner there who had a  claim which was a weigh ton his hands,  and was so profitless that he desired  to unload it, He soon hatched a  scheme that proved successful, and  which yielded him a large sum. He  hied himself to the gold commissioner  and told him that he wished to pay  the royalty on the output of the claim,  and after stating that he had taken  out $000,000 in gold dust from the  property paid the official the royalty  of 10 per cent on that amount, consisting of $6,000. For this he received  a receipt, which stated that the royalty  on claim number so and so and on  such a creek had been paid for in the  sum of just $6,000. Soon an unsuspecting Englishman came along  and asked the clairnowner if he had  anything to sell. The receipt on the  royalty paid on the worthless claim  was shown to the Englishman, and  the result was that the valueless claim  was sold to him for $185,000. The  Englishman, after a few day's work,  realized that he had run up again3t  the worst kind of a bunco game, while  the "honest" miner had left for scenes  of civilization in order that he might  there enjoy the the fruits of his  fraud.

Maj. Jameson was  some distance ia front, and there waa  a- single clap of thunder and flash of  lightning, which frightened Mrs. Jameson, and she and her husband went into  a wood and returned to the house, expecting that Ma J. Jameson would follow. ' '<���  About half an hour later Maj, Jameson was found by a(game keeper, lying on his face in the field quite dead.  Around blm, in a radius of several yards,  were his clothes and boots, which had  been torn and scattered about in an  extraordinary manner. The lightning  appeared to have struck Maj. Jameson on the right side of the bead, tearing the cap he was wearing to pieces,  and burning his. hair off. It then,  passed inside his collar, down the front  of his body and both legs, into hia boots,  which were torn to atoms, and then  passed into the ground, tearing a hole  about 18 inches in circumference and  three inches deep.  The deceased man's collar was torn  into 100 pieces, none larger than a sixpence,, the front of his jacket was rent  into ribbons, and the jacket and under-  vest literally torn to shreds, and the  knickerbockers he was wearing were  stripped off and scattered on the  ground. Maj. JameBon'3 stockings and  gaiters were "similarly torn in pieces,  and on the boots the lightning had a ro-  xnarkable effect.  DAN SUPPLY ,YOTJ WITH.

The  specialist is the man who succeeds and  having once set hia hand to an occupation one dare never leave it under penalty of failure in what he has chosen as  his life work. In the west all this was  different. Versifcility was a necessity.  The successful man must know how to  do many things. The gleanings of any  one field of activity were too small to  afford a living of thomfvelves. This fact  was accepted, by the citizens of the  country, sometimes with a grim humor  which marked the west.  A young lawyer in a western town  had out a sign which read: "John  Jones, attorncy~at-law. Real estate and  insurance. Collections promptly attended to at all hours of the dny, or night.  Good Ohio cider for sale at. five cents a  glass." A storekeeper had on his window the legend: "Wall paper and marriage licenses," thus announcing two  commodities for which there was a  very small demand. One of the prominent citizens ox such a town was ,o  gambler, a farmer, a fighter and a  school teacher all in one. There seemed  to the minds of the inhabitants of the  country nothing incongruous in ihits  mixing up of occupations, : it being  taken.for granted that a roan would  endeavor to make a living in the way*  .for/which he seemed best fitted.  ;r?,yv /$s-z$5"?��jrz��V 7^-v i$s. ^~^^r -^v* "F^ ���z$sv$3-z$s-z���� -^s-zjx-zj^-zjs-  The only  house   in   East  THE  COSMOPOLITAN  Kootnay  heate'd^throughourwitli^hotair.

"Landlord, you'll act as my second."''  "I'll do that and take your place if  you  go- down,"  replied the landlord,  .who was only little less of a brute than,  ���the man he was championing.  "And I'll act for-this"gentleman,"  said a tall man, who had been sitting  unnoticed since he "reached the place,  a few hours .before, with the mail-carrier. He had. a long, black beard,'his  hat was slouched, and his coat collar  turned up so that but little of his face  could be seen, but there was that ih'his  voice and- bearing tha<t convinced t'lw.  lookers-on that he was .no ordinary  person.  As 'the stranger took lis place ber  1 side Arthur, who acknowledged! the offer by a courteous bow, he drew from  under' his coat two revolvers and he  held them with the peculiar grip of a  man who knew how to use them."  "Have you a, good' pistol?" asked the  stranger, as he- took Arthur's arm and  led.him out of the hotel in thedirec'tion  Bed Snively had' taken.  "I have not," replied Arthur.  "Then take this.

"Leave the whole thing to me, nnd do  not interfere, no matter what I propose," said the stranger, pressing the  young man's arm.  "You appear to be a gentleman, and I  will do as j-ou say," replied Arthur.  The crowd in the bar came out in the  rain to see the duel, all taking care to  be out of range.    ,  "I propose," said the landlord, "that  we place our men at ten paces with revolvers, we seconds '11 toss up for the  word, and then they're to fire and keep  firing till one or the other goes down."  "I'll do nothing of the kind," replied'  the stranger, in tones that evinced coolness and determination; "this bully,"  pointing to Snively with his revolver,  "is a good shot; my man is not. I propose they shall shoot across a pocket  handkerchief, or let only one pistol be  used; we'll draw lots to see which man  shall take it. Are you agreed?" he  asked, turning to Arthur,  "I agree to whatever you say���"  . "But I don't!" shouted Bed Snively.  "This ain't t6 be a murder, but a duel."  "A murder!" cried the stronger, striding toward the bujly.   -,J.Do you dare to  speak of murder?"  "I want a fair fight," replied Snively.  "A fair fight is impossible without fin  equality of skill and force.   You would  not fight, you cur, if you did not feel  that you bad all the advantage on your  side," said the stranger, with stinging  contempt. c  "Mebbc you'd like to change places  with your man," said the landlord of  the Great Western.
