A popular and prominent man in
England was onco called upon to
address an assemblage, which
greeted him enthusiastically and
with cheers. The newspaper which
reported the meeting said innocently: "The vast concourse rent
the air with their snouts."
An MS. read as follows: "All
these facts are really worth noting."
The printer, however, inserted an
"h" into the last word, and it was
thus set up, "All these facts aro
really worth nothing."
A provincial newspaper, in reporting the speech of a celebrated
politician, intended to add as a

"and them aB§es believed him,"

"The battle is now opened." But
alas! tho compositor spelled battle
with an "o" and his readers said
they had suspected it right along.
An instance of faithful effort to
"follow copy" occurred in a Now
York newspaper oflice. Tho reporter, who wrote a very bad vortical hand, put it down that zigzag
flashes of lightning played among
the clouds, and iu the proof it came
out that "Jno.-'JOO flashes" played
among tho clouds,
"Tlie queen drove two cows,"
for "through Cowos."
Most readers will recollect sitnilnr
examples.   Thero is a case of the
learned reenter who wrote, 'The
bride looked an fait."   It appeared
"all feet."   Agaiu the poet piped
sadly of the tune
"\Vhen I shall rett within thc slmlo,
With « weeping willow by iny niAe."
Imagine his   horror  when
lines were printed:
"U'hen I Hhnll rem within the hIhuv

THE following good story, published
by the Salt Lake Mining- Review,
has the merit of being true—too
In a prosperous little town in this inter-mountain region, not long ago, a
banker met the district judge on the
street The two were soon joined by
one of the leading merchants of the
place. The banker was doing a good
business, the judge had made some good
money of late in deals in real estate and
the merchant had enjoyed a brisk business during the fall and had a nice account to his credit at the bank. The
three, after a few minute's conversation,
were joined by a mining-man—a man of
excellent standing in the community—a
man who could be relied upon, although
he was in rather straitened circumsancea
The mining man was just in from the
hills, where he had made a discovery of
more than usual importance—a large
vein of free milling gold ore that cropped
boldly to the surface, and which could
be traced through the length of three
claims, After the s driving bf tunnels,
llie sinking of shafts, the making pf. tin-
raises, the sinking of winzes, all in ore,
and after the ledge had been cross-cut
in many places, blocking out a large
tonnage of ore of even and paying grade,
the mining man decided that the condition of the mine would fully warrant the
erection of reduction works, and, for
purpose of securing the necessary funds
for the furtherance of this project he
proposed to the banker the judge ani
the merchant to give them a controlling
interest in his mine if they would furnish the money for the building ofthe
mill, being satisfied in hiB mind that
they would realize thousands where
they had invested hundreds.
And yet, notwithstanding the fact
that the" town dependedialmost entirely
upon the mineB of that section for support aud growth, these three men, who,
doubtlcs3 would be willing suckers
should any Ifake i scheme come their
way, bo^au to offer excuses and to discourage! the mining man in his undertaking.
Said the banker: <:Things look squally
to me in the East and I look for a panic
within the next six months. Why, look
at the high rate for call loans on Wall
street; and then, too, iwe are to have a
presidential election next year, and that
always unsettles the money market In
'*■■ my opinion, if any one haa any coin, he
had better hang on to it."
The judge said: " I have a few thousand in the bank, but, if you feel that
way I think I will pass np any inining

mv investment would make twenty-one
inside of a year.   I had been
of buying that corner lot opposite your
bank and putting,up an office building
on it, but now 1 will put my money out
at interest, eyeu if I get but a low rate.
The times look, too risky for me to take
any chances."
The merchant said: •'•1 have bcien doing a good business, true enough, and I
have been looking forward fur a big
trade foi* the holidays. But, as you both
say, one cannot tell when finances in
the East will all go to smash, then
where would I be. I have just made
out an order for a big bill oi goods, but
I will npt send it in, and will try to get
along with what 1 have until these
troublous times pass over. J guess I
will let out my head bookkeeper and
dispense with a clerk or two."
And thus wa8Qthe mining man turned
dow^i pn a legitimate proposition,
"Aud tho next day it snowed.''
For, within less than six hours the expressions and opinions of the banker,
the judge and the merchant had gained
currency in every nook aud corner of
the town.' Within three weeks three
mercantile firms failed because of the
rumors of hard times coming ° Two
manufacturing concerns closed their
doors because merchants and dealers,
becoming timid, .curtailed their orders.
Deposits at the bank became less and
lesB because people whispered about
that, owing to the hard times coming, it
might become insolvent. Many families left towrinn search of a more prosperous locality, and the rent sign was
hungup in many vacant houses, and
where once all had been the scene of
enterprise and prosperity, the solitude
of the graveyard how prevails, the ouly
increase recorded being the number of
croakers who are still burdened with
the topic of hard times.
Still, the mines are there. Hard times
have not robbed them of their great deposits of ore, of their almost iucalculabls
wealth, and yet; for fear that something
of a calamitous nature may happen in
the East, their treasures remain untouched, and men yith the millions of a
RothBchild at their door, with an opportunity to make a fortune with the expenditure of a little money, and who
have the money in their pockets, and
refuse to take advantage of this chance
to amass wealth because the banker was
timid, because the judge was (influenced
bv tho banker, and because the merchant was a, fool because he had been
too prosperous—because three croakers
were allowed to roam around at large
and poison the atmosphere which, until
then, had been buoyant and charged
with the electrical energy of prosperity

The ethics of the Post-Graduate hospital forbid that any- information shall,
be giveri to the public about either the
patients or the attending physicians. It
was learned, however, that Katica's
statements are.virtually- correct and
that the successful inaking of a nose
from a finger is being done by Dr. Samuel Lloyd, of No. 12West Fiftieth street.
Katica is 23 years old! How he lost
his leg, his eyelid and his nose is im-
possibieto learn.
In the last operation the base of the
nose and the inner surface of the finger
were roughened, or the cuticle removed,
so that when the two parts were placed
together they might grow as one piece.
When this had been done Katica's left
arm was so strapped to his side that he
could not involuntarily move it and dis
tttrb the transplanting. The finger was
bound to his face, not with a piaster
cast, but with strips ofj adhesive plaster,
which i passed across the back of the
hand and the finger and were attached
to the face or passed behind the head.
For six weeks Katica has suffered his
finger to be bound to his face, and though
the pain, he says, was intense, he has
not lost his nerve or determination.
When the finger was finally arrjputa
ted from the hand the flesh was found
to be growing on the face, and all that
is* uow uecessary is to form it into shape
by small operations.
Dr. Lloyd refused to discuss theoper-
ation. From another source it was
learned that there is not the slightest
doubt that the new nose of Katica will
be a success—New York World.

THE STORY of Poland ought to bo
taught in every American public
school, so that the children would
learn to value democracy and to hate
The peoplo of Poland had freedom
once—not real Ireedom, of course, hut
what was called fieodom In those days.
Whenever they wore robbed or op-
prOHsed, tho robbery was done by Poles
in a Polish way, so they did not mind It

Today'Poland is a country oi wretchedness, poverty, fear and despair. It Is
completely under tho control of tho
lltiBHinn government. Although tt has
almost twice the population of Now York
stato, it has had tho spirit of its people
so crushed that Is today nothing but a
rabble of miserable human beings.

self such a trust as this, and you will

vou wish to know them;

that at the moment a hundred millions
