rmd men who would nol have u gram
uf rye on their farms, li Is capable ll
rightly handled of serving as good a
purpose as any known crop which a
fanner can raise, says n Michigan writer In the Western Rural.
Rye should he sown as earls' ifter
karvest as possible, it is not particularly partial to any one kind o( soli
although light, rather than heavy land
Is best for It. It makes good and rapid
growth and call lie pastured quite lute
In the fall, In fact until winter sets In.
As soon as the snow is off the ground
In spring It can be again pasture.!, it
grows rapidly and will usually keep
ahead of stock unless too many head
per acre are turned Into It.
The rye Held Is an ideal place in which
to keep hogs ot any age. .Nothing affords such abundance of pasture In tlie
eastern or middle states. It quickly recovers after close cropping and requires
but little moisture to keep It growing.
As it heads out considerable earlier
than other grain it may be cut for hay
if desired and the land put In potatoes,
beans or corn. Or the pasturing may
be continued while the grain ripens.
Hogs will run in a rye held all summer, requiring no other food and be fat
enough to kill in tile fall, although usually a few weeks feeding on corn is
thought desirable. 1 have known a I since, because he
drove of twenty hogs being kept all I tobacco as bavins saved his life; for

with no other
butcher without a day's extra teed.
The rye thus treated self seeds and
oomes up again green and thick as a
mat lu the ull.
By some rye is allowed to mature its
seed and the crop threshed, but the
writer prefers to cut while green and
make into hay, or turn under for mature rather than to have the rye springing up lu other crops. So the seed is
nought from year to year.
To those who have never tried it 1
would say, sow a Held of rye this year.
Sow it early und do not be afraid to
pasture It late, it will come on In
the spring affording pasture long before the grass Is big enough to turn
into. Keep it fed down as long us possible, but when it begins to Joint keep
out thu stock if you want It for hay
or to perfect the grain for threshing.
In cutting for hay cut before It begins
to turn yellow at the roots, so that it
will be green and nice when cured. If
Jt can be used for imgs let them remain
in It all summer and you will lind it the
easiest way of fattenjng them you ever
trial. Nothing makes springs pigs

to report himself concerning it. Beforo '-
he could regain his post a skirmish <n- j
curred, and the man who was in his very j
place was killed.
At this point a tall, sunburnt American j
with white hair and beard, who had been [
listening to the other with considerable i
emotion. Interrupted  with  "Excuse tne,
though I am a stranger to you. but didn't
that southerner tell you tha: the quinine
wns for his little daughter, who was lown
with fever?"
"Yes," said the other, "and didn't the
northerner .sny that his little girl was ill
of fever, too, but he would share her
medicine with the other little one, even
without the tobacco?"
"Why, yes," cried the original narrator,
"I believe he did. and thnt was me."
"Atnl 1 wns the southerner," cried the
oilier, "and here is my daughter, whose
life you helped to save, and here's one of
my grandchildren with her."
The Englishman who was present says
that there was then such a scene of
handshaking, Introductions, and congratulations as must have made people
at the other tables think the company
must have been visitors from Bedlam.
The northerner had also a daughter with
him, who Is a widow, and tho embrace
of the two women who had never seen
eaoh oilier before, but whose early lives
had so closely touched, was peculiarly
affecting.
"And lo think we should meet each other so far away from home, and in lihig-

This may not slrlke some of our renders as a subject with which the practical farmer bus anything to do. but
we assure such that the most practical,
auocesHt'ul farmer Is the ono who lakes
an occasional day off-even prolongs the
day to a week or ten days sometimes,
Too many farmers seem to think
that the thing to do Is lo dig with main
brute force from early morning till Into
at night wllh no let up Tor m days n
year, and chasing round all day Sun-
toy besides, Such men have a faint
idea uf the good things thoy miss in
life. The fanner's life at nest lias days
of hard toll that are sometimes long,
but to moke every day a long, hard
one Is not doing one's best.
Plan to have as few days from sun
to sun ns possible and break the monotony of constant work by an occasional outing. One does not have to go
to the seashore or to a mountain retreat to have an outing; does not necessarily have to take a train or a wheel.
A good time of rest may be had In a
trip by wagon over the country from
the home farm as a center.
Writing In the New York Tribune of
such a trip Webb Donnell says; "Take
a. wagon and the farm team, put In a
supply of eatables for both man and j
beast, make provisions for camping out i
at night, and make a trip thrnugout the
oountry as far as your time and Inell-
nation lead.
"Think of the Jolly dinners cooked by ;
the roadside and the pleasure   of   a
search each night for a place to camp! '
Then, too, one would hav- a continued
interest In tin- sight   of   farm   aftor
farm, with Its stock and its method ol
work.   Some of these farms you may      jlton
have heard of because of some peculiar       "}f^
excellence, and you will want to visit    v    (
them as you go along. Ili;i,-
"Such a drive can be made the means i johnsoi
of great pleasure and much practical | ments-
good, und when the horses turn In at
the old place again I'm quite sure they
will bring home a load of people greatly benefited by the experience, When
you got homo from this or some other
outing begin to plan straightway for
the outing of next year. You can't
think what pleasure the anticipation
and planning will give every member nf
tho family, it will lighten the whole
year's labor. We lake things too ser-
loudly; wn don't relax enough. Suppose
a bit of surh recreation does coal so nothing'/ l greatly Question the Idea thai
it id to make mere working machines
of ourselves. Besides, one can work so
much better after a rest of this sort
that ho will soon more than make up
ihe oodt."

Captain Wobb always used thu luv.isi

channel, a feat in compurlsau wllh which
xploit ut the Itelit'sponl wns a
trifle.
There Ih no exercise which tires ona
less than swimming when prnporly done.
After a llvo-mlle swim the heart will
not heat nny fuster than at tho start If
the swimmer knows how lo swim.
Swimming several miles should uot
exhaust* one as much as riding a bicycle
Up a steep hill.
Captain Wehb wus a slow swimmer and
was never nood at any fancy Btrokes,
Men  are  "pumped"  by swimming  be-
cnuao they do not lenrti to swim properly.
.Swimming is a question of balunce.
It is not necessary to carry tho neck
like a strangled giraffe In order to »wlm
well.
The head should be well forward nnd
the mouth should be under witter until
the hands separate for the stroke.
Expel the breath as tho hands go forward; Inhale It ns they are brought backward to propel tho body forward
Breathe properly and you will swim
quickly and well.
StyR'x of Snliuiiiliiu.
In   order   to   breathe   properly   "blow
your hands from you."
In swimming with the breast stroke
ihe hands should work on tho same horizontal plane ns the body, and uot downward.
Some boys are Inclined to think they
swim faster on their sides because they
see the water going past them.
You can't save a drowning man by any
fancy swimming.
Nothing but the breast stroke will save
you when in trouble.
The frog not only has the best breast
stroke of nay swimmer, but the way he
uses his hind legs furnishes a good model.
The side stroke used by racing swim-
I mers  is essentially  different from   that
boys cull by the same name.
,1. H, Tyres, who has revolutionized
side stroke swimming, has lowered every
amnteur championship record. IPs time
for one mite is 27 minutes 21 and two*
fifths seconds.
If you attempt to rescue a drowning
mini and he seizes you by the head, place
one hand behind his back and the other
hand on his chin. In this way you oan
"duck" him by pushing his head backward, and he will let go of you of necessity.
If a drowning man catches you by the
wrist, which Is his most likely hold, release yourself by turning your wrist
imainst his thumb. This will probably
turn him around so that you can get
proper hold of him and bring him to
shore, swimming on your back.
If a drowning man seize you by tho
body, push hlm away by bringing your
knee up ngnlnst him as high ns you can.
.1. H. Tyres makes his great speed by a
curious screw-like motion or his legs
below the knees. His body does not atop
Its progress between the arm strokes.
At a life saving show in London last
year dock laborers won prizes In competition with teams from all parts of
England.
The location of a drowning man who
hus sunk can generally be told by bubbles lu tho water.
The notion that a drowning person will
"rise three times" is utter nonsense.
When a drowning man sinks he Is nearly dead, and If you determine to wait
tint 11 he rises you will have to wait until
Ihe resurrection day.

I Stories of Jenny Lind,
t
Thu first and dominant Impression one
would be apt to have on seeing Jenny
Llnd was one of fresh and uusophistluat-
ed glrllshness—and she was girlish, and
possessed a great deal of Ingenuous child*
like simplicity, Hhe was not so remarkable for good looks as for looking good.
One could rend moral goodness and a
kindly disposition lu every lineament of
her expressive face. Her large blue eyes
were luminous wllh thought and fooling,
and her face resplendent wilh tho beauty
nf expression, and without being considered a pretty woman, she wns the
most attruetlve nnd Irresistible or mortals. 8ho wus also a enwture of tho most
generous nature, who on occasions outwent the very her it of kindness. She
has been known to give to Individuals,
her friends, sums of from $0 to jf-tiea-and
hor public charities would amount almost
to millions; among Ihnsu she gave to ono
.Swedish church in Chicago the sum of
$1000. God and nature had ondowud her
with 11 marvelous gift, and she showed
herself so far amenable to provldonoo as
to seek every opportunity to pay buck the
obligation. One little Incident Is here
worth relating as Illustrating the gonur-
ous Impulses of her nature; On ono occasion 11 poor girl laid down £1 at the
ticket olllce, saying that "there goes half
n month's wages -let 1 If It costs me a
month's I am bound to hear Jenny Llnd."
On lids being related to iho singer, elio
earnestly Inquired of the tlckot seller If
he would know tlie girl, and being assured, she sent her n (20 gold plcco with
Jenny hind's kind compliments, whluh the
girl acknowledged wilh grateful tears.
She possessed a most unbounded reverence for her art, and her Influence on
tho progress of music In Amorlca can
hardly bo estimated, for she Inspired ethers, who hardly knew anything of music,
with her own ardor, and made them share
her enthusiasm. Probably no ona person
-certainly no ono woman-over oxorted a
more extended and Improving influence.
Tu show the extent of this two personal
peculiarities may be cited, Her hair
was dressed full on the side, so ns to
stand 011I from the head generally the
tnoHt artistic method, as It thereby gives
relief lo the face, forming a sort of frame
work or background for 11—not always
becoming In all, however. She also pes
HSHfld an easy, gliding, graceful stop,
movement or carriage, that seemed very
attractive It was probably not more
thnn a week afler her debut at Caatle
Harden before nearly every young lady
In upper tomtom hnd hor hair drossed a
lit Jenny Llnd, and was also doing hor
best to acquire the nightingale's walk or
carriage. All this happened nearly naif
a century ago, nnd the lady who has hold
thousands anlranued on the musical cad-
onee of hor voice hns now passed away,
and sings no more,
"Tho birdlike voice, whoso joyous tones
Made glad these seonos of sin and style,
Sings next nn everlasting song
Around tho tret of life."

a few days, for thai remarkable young
iniin, the Emperor William uf Clermuny,
has given strii-l orders to the numerous
guards who Inhabit the royal palace at
Jlcrlln to Intercept the first ghost tint
appears and hold It prisoner.
Tlie lucky gunrd who affects the capture will doubtless be given a title, for
this ghost has worried the Llohomtollorus
for something like over four hundred
years, and whenever she appeared some
notable member of the fnmlly, usually
ihe emperor, died within a month or two.
This ghost is known as tne While Lady,
ns she always appears in (lowing white
robes. Her history Is longer than l"
campaign speeches, and a deal more Interesting. She wns seen in ihe pnluce
about four weeks ago. hence the emperor's order for her capture.
There are many other interesting hPi-
torleal ghosts, who, aowover, are not so
well known as the White Lady ol the
llobenzollerns, This country is comparatively free of ghosts, bul Fhiglaud
is a veritable land of wraiths. The superstitious peasantry may have something
to do with Ihe excessive supply. Bach
little village nnd hamlet has us own
ghost, usually a ghost of great antiquity,
around whom time has entwined a verdant growth of romance.
Some   SiiKNes   f.uoiiieft.
Sussex, whicli of all the English counties has retained its old characteristics
ibe most, has a good many ghosts who
nre still realities in the eyes of the
rustles of that little visited dlstri -t.
which was once the center of England's
iron Industry. There is the headless man
of Sl. Leonard's forest, known as Squire
Puulolt, who jumps upon lie- crupper of
a horseman entering the forest, and remains there until clear of it. There is
the Drummer of Hurstmonceaux. Black
dogs—a favorite shape assumed by gliosis
all ovor England—haunt nil dark Innea
and lone byroads, and under many a sequestered wooded bridge a headless woman may lie seen spinning; while on tbe
old cattle mud between Kingston, near
Lewes, and the Marshes, known as the
Drove Way, a goblin may be seen on
any dark wild night, Incessantly spinning charcoal!
Matter of fuel London has ghosts by
the score, and while few people acknowledge a heller in the creepy visitors, it i.-
n notable face thai many bouses remain
untenanted from one year's end to another because or the ruct thai Ihey ure
said to be inhabited by wraiths. Tin
most notable of the London ghosts is thai
of Lord Holland, who is said lo walk .11

Norfolk is anotiicr English -county
whioh teems with ghosts. There Is a
pale, long-haired woman, who runs
• shrieking amongst the pits on Aylmorton
Heath. There is a great black "Shuck

headless, and ut Salhouso has a blazing
eye Iii the center of his forehead, and
who has a brother nt Peel cn-mb in tho

Still prances about on a headless rocking

Anne lloloyn still rides down the avenue
or Blinking Park, once a year, in u
hearse-like coach, drawn by four headless
horses, and driven by a headless driver,
with her head In her lap; and her father,
81s Thomas, does the same thing. At
Calslor castle thero is another coach and
headless team, and yet another near
(Ireut .Mellon, This last rises from a
pool every midday and midnight, and
with its load of four headless, dripping,
while robed ladles, passes slowly round
tho fluid and sinks again; and tradition
says that at this spot, long ago, a bridal parly was upset Into this pnnl und

did happen, for everybody in Until says
so. Al any rate ll was ,1 gain night, but
Ihe next morning all thv servants excepting four faithful ones, who had been with
iho family for many years, wero discharged, and shortly after breakfast all
the members of the family left ihe manor
house in carriages. No gootl-bys were
snld. behind tin in they lort Ihelr beautiful home as ii had i.. ni un- day before,
On tin. mantels and dressers were the
pictures nf trlonrts; in the bureaus and
lockers and chests were tholr clothes, on
the desks Ihelr letters and papers. Trinkets lay on ihe tallies forgotten.
The doors were locked, tlie ..iirlains
pulled down ami lie- house closed for
all lime.
The   Mini   In   lUiiek,
A man in black Is said la walk lint
house every night, mumbling lind moaning as he passes up and down the broad
stairway. Scores of people assert tlml
they have heard him nnd a few say they
have seen him. One of the latter describes hint US follows: His hair was long
nnd curly, and parted on the side; his
eyes were bright, his features clearly
cut and Ids face pale, lie was smooth
shaven, and wore a high-standing collar
and a black bow and stock. lie was In
evening dress and wort no jewelry except a gold fob, For a moment, he .-cased mumbling, and then began moaning
and walked away, lie passed the door,
walking toward the stairway.
The ghost bunt* r tiptoed to the door
and watched him ascend the stairway
until lie was half way lo the top. wnen
lie stopped, us though he bud encountered another person. He raised his hands
appealing!? and fell backward with a
shriek that rang throughout Iho house
and was answered by the echoes. His
hand struck a marble step, and, thinking
thai bo had been Injured, Iho wutclnr
rushed to the spot.    Me saw nothing.
The history of tills ghost Is lightly
locked with the family who now live in
Hm old Forbes mansion on Fifth avenue,
Now York. Paul Simeon Fobes purchased the manor bouse lu 1S50 from the Van
Rotisselaors witli wu nores of land, lie
paid SM.OOO for it, which was considerably
less than the cost of the house, the laud
being practically thrown in. Whether
the ghost Is tlie property of tlie Forbes
family or of the Van Renssetners no one
knows, for they bug tbe search closely.
Tbe manor house is now tlie proper y
of a boston man, Nathaniel Stone.

id the Columbia ut ihe
Llttlo Dalles, which stream we followed
up to the mouth ol' Beaver creek, when
we again crossed the Columbia. Beaver
creek was followed up to tho north Cork
of Salmon river, then over to Lite main
stream to the divide near ihe head of
that stream, There we made a camp,
and employed ourselves in prospecting
for placer gold In the different mountain
streams near. The cam]) was nn excellent one. There were ninny pretty little
parks where we could graze our animals.
Some of the boys were always wilh them.
One day Thomas Hale and billy White
(now both dead) were with the horses.
One of them wns sitting on a boulder,
and picked up a piece of copper stained
rook. He remarked to tho other that
he believed there was a mine near there.
He got up, walked a few feet, anu found
the ore cropping out of what was afterward known as the Kootenay bonanza.
"Our party had not been successful in
placer digging, and were about lo return
to Colvllle when the discovery was made.
After this wo searched around and found
ore In several other places, and were linn
In the belief that we had found a maun-
laln of mineral. Wo gathered up a lot
of samples and returned to Colvllle, and
then commenced to try to raise money to
go back and locate tho ground and pay
for recording. Although wo showed our
samples and tho assays, we could not
get a dollar, although wc offered to give
one-half of all wo might locate to anyone
who would advance the money. Finally
my fnther mortgaged bis farm for $t:0f>,
which gave us what we required. During
this time iieopte In that vicinity were
trying to llnd out where we had been,
We had taken out two Indians, and en
our return some of the peoplo tried to
find out from thorn where we had been.
and offered them $10 a day to show '.hem
the mountain where the ore came from.
but they remained true to us, and never
gave it away.
"In the following spring we started
back, but did not go over our old trail. (I
forgot lo mention in our former trip v.'e
had out ovor 100 miles of trail.) We wont
in hy tbn way of bonner's Ferry to avoid
being followed by Inquisitive people.
I'poii reaching our old camping ground
we lirst located the Kootenay Bonanza,
the American Flag, Silver King and Give
Out. There was no recorder's oHIce In
the district, and the claims were recorded away west on Okanogan lake, at Vernon, I believe.
"There were 12 members of our party,
but we gave an equal share with us lo
the man who made our assays.
"Where the discovery was lirsl mndelhe
lodge was 2fl feet wide and the iMinpbs
taken to Colvllle gave an average of
$151,80 In sliver and *t> In gold."
Tlie Development.
Since the lirst location work on this
property has been continuous. The original owners developed tbe properly pretty thoroughly. They run several tunnels and connected them; in bid did ovor
1100 feet of development work, and demonstrated that the mine was a valuable
one. In 1889 or 1890 they shipped 103 tons
or ore, packing it from the mine to the
Kootenny lake, near where the town of
Nelson now stnnds, shipping it to Bonner's Ferry by the old steamer Galetia,
and from there by wagon io Kootenai
station on the Northern Pacific railway.
It cost Jltl a ton to puck the ore from
tlie mine to the river, $2.50 a ton for boat
trnnsportallou to bonner's Ferry, and
$20 a ton wagon transportation to Kootenai station, a distance of 25 miles. This
in addition lo the railway charges lo
Butto and smelter charges for treatment
made it an expensive experiment. A portion of this ore was shipped lo Denver,
the smelter peoplo there bidding $1300
more for the shipment. In all the owners
shipped about 20» tons of ore.
Tho mine was .lumped once, for no
valid reason, and It cost the owners J'ju,-
000 to retain possession. A Mr. Atkins
made the necessary advances, for which
the owners deeded him one-half tho property.
The property wus once under bond to
a Scoleh syndicate for Jli.WO.uOo, but the
closing of the East Indian minis about
that time frightened the proposed purchasers and the deal was declared off.
Bight months after another London syndicate wus formed lo take a controlling
Interest for $1,500,000. This deal was successfully engineered hy John McDonald
and B. H. Oroaisdale, and the present
Hall mines, limited, was organized with
a capital of $1,500,000. or HOO.OOO shares at
£1 each. The stonk or the original owners was not assessable. Mr. Atkins, who
come to their rescue In tholr lime of
trouble, wns their valuable ally In these
negotiations.
The property has passed through all
of the vicissitudes of many another good
mlne—dissensloiifi among owners, expensive suits at law 10 retain possession,
the attempts of the purchasers to induce
tho minority stockholders Lo relinquish
their holdings and the various devices
which were held out to tempt them to
let go. II Is? surmised even now that
the recent rapid advance or Iho shares
in the London market, and the subsequent rapid decline, were inn Inducements held out Tor the owners lo lessen
their holdings or sel! oui allogothor.
There was no reason Tor the udvnnoo;
Die mine hud paid no dividends, although
il Is gelling In shape tn do so. The management has been cnnservnbve, ;i ]m.ge
amount of expensive machinery mis been
installed ami more will be put In. When
(his Is all done the mine will lie one of
the largest and best equipped pi'flporllos

Katie Burnot Consolidated are constantly
dropping tlie whole 20 stamps of the
Idaho mill. Fiftoon of the stamps have
been run several days, ihe other live
starting up this morning, The ore bins
were full of ore from the Idaho when the
mill was bought and that ore wns run out
drat, since when It lias been hauled from
the Katie Burnot by wagons. It will be
several days yel before the tramway
connecting this mine with the mill Is mils lied.
Dovelopmenl work on tho Idaho will be

cents, all her eiusb capital, Is willed wlbi
thi- proviso that il Is not spent in thi
meantime, and other beneficiaries are
mndu such only in the event of the lestw-
tor's mammn not destroying the property.
The. unique will was made by S-yoar-old
Bertha Anna Todd of Carthago, Mo,, ana
witnessed by two of her Utile playmates,
It was folded and indorsed on the back
"bast will and tostnment of bertha Anna
Todd."
Tlie  will   follows;

When Weyler heard of the rumors he summoned the young man
tu the palace and questioned
him.
Weyler was apparently satis-
tied of the young man's guilt, and
told him that if he did uot commit suicide in lit hours lie would
be courumu'tialed and shot. The
lieutenant left the palace, went
to his room, and in six hours was
a corpse, having shot himself
through the heart. The affair
was hushed up, and thejSpouish
officials' report said tlie young I
man died of yellow fever.
Shortly afterward General
Ocondo arrived in Havana, and!
learned the true story of his
nephew's death. He was greatly j
enraged. He immediately wem I

generals was most sensational, i

of Spain, a proposed circular to
the powers annul tho condition

Senior Oauovas announced that

relative lo the Cuban situation,
and that al an opportune moment
a memorandum would be submit'
thu to the powers in order to
enable them to judge of tlie true

Continuing, Senor Canovas said
that Ihe Spanish people had no
cause lo complain of the policy
of President Cleveland, but Senators Sherman and Morgan were
to be blamed for their speeches
in Ihe United Status senate,
He concluded by advising a

censuring the Spanish govorn-

America landing in Cuba.
To this Senor Canovas replied,
adding that. Spain should nol rely

hor own   resources   to   retain

"Ho you think tho attitude of
the new liberal government will
be friendly to the Crow's Nest
project'/"
"Certainly. There are somo
ood business men in the new
government and they realize tho
importance of this line not only
to British Columbia, but to all
Canada, and I think they will bo
in favor of extending all reasonable encouragement. Nothing
can be done till parliament meets.
Then we shall go to the government and ask for assistance,
When wo do so wo shall ho pro-
pared with the fullest information

sentiment will be so strong we
shall obtain the help we ask

"Then you thing the Crow's

early day and that the Canadian
Pacific main lino will use that
route?"
"Yes,"

SEKIOCS RIOTING  IK  1HKLANU
■Eivstoi'ii Canada is beooining
more fully aroused to tho importance of British Columbia, and
the representatives of capitalists
from Toronto, Montreal and
Quebec are in tho Held looking'
for safe mining investments for
their principals.
There need ho no mistake made
in investment, if the same rules
which apply in ordinary business
ventures obtain in buying a mineral claim.
The time for speculation has
passed, and the camps are settling
down to work on a business
basis. No more fancy prices Will
be paid for prospects, Thoy
will sell on their merits, the same
as an article ol' merchandise.
ll is gi'iilifying to that the people ol' Canada are taking an
interest in the mines of British
Columbia,'. Though slow to
awaken to the fact that in the
dominion there lies the richest
