That was the first re;wt I heard from

The report slumbered during the sum

ablaze Then companies commenced
forming It was not entirely a strange
land to some of our people.
Ours was a whaling village. Two
thirds of the male population were bred
to the sea. Every boy knew the ropes
of a ship as soon if not sooner than he
did bis multiplication tabid. Ours wa.
a "traveled" community. They went
nearer the north and south poles than
nost people of their time, and Behring
trails, the Kamtuchatkan coast, the sea
of Japan, Rio Janeiro. Valparaiso, the
Sandwich islands, the Azores and the
names of many other remote localities
were words in every one's mouth, and
words, too. which we were familiar
irtth from chiluhojd. Many of our
whalers had touched at San Francisco
and Monterey. There h id recently been

'- By November, I Sis, ( '..liioraia was
tne talk of the village, as it va3 all that
time of the whole country. The great
gold fever raed all winter.
All the old retired whaling captains
wanted to go. and most of them did go.
All the spruce young men of the place
wanted to go Companies were formed,
and there was much serious drawing up i
of constitutions and
r-.-irulation. In most

eioeflfd to be gotten
out of the Call-,
fornia Indian. He was expected to give
stores of gold and furs in exchange for
gJt watches, brass chains, beads and
gktHS marbles. The companies bought
safes in which to keep their gold, and
also strange und co'mplei gold washing
machines, of which numerous patterns
vaddeuly sprang up, invented by Yankees
who never saw and never were to see a
gold mine. Curious ideas were enter
tained relative to California. The Sacra
mento river was reported as abounding
in alligators. Colored prints represented
tii adventurer pursued by theiie reptiles.
The general opinion was that it was a
fearfully 'iot country and full of snakes.
Of the companies funned in our vicin
ity some had more standing and weight
than others, and meiu'oeroiiip in them
was eagerly sought for. An idea pre-;
Tailed tiiat when this moral weight and
respectability was launched on the shores
trf California it would entail fortune on
all belonging to the organization. People
with the lightnijig glance and divination
of golden anticipation saw themselves al
nsady in the mines hauling over chunks
at ore and returning home weighed down
with them. Five years was the longest
period any one expeeted to stay. Five
years at most was to be given to rifling
California of her treasures, and then that
country was to be thrown aside like a
used-up newspaper, and the rich adven
turers would spend the remainder of
their days in wealth, peace and prosper
ity at their eastern homes. Ho one tardea
then of going out "to build np the glori
oas ate of California." No one then
ever took any pride in the thought that
he might be called a "Calif orniaja." So
they went.
People who oould not go invested in
men who could go, and paid half the ex
of their passage and outfit on con
dition that they r nould remit back half
tt gold they dog. Thw teaaiftin of

were to marry on their return. How few

that period's choice. How little weighed
the words of the minister a year after
ward in the hurry scurry of the San
Francisco life of "-19-40,
What an innocent, unsophisticated, in
exjH'rienctsl lot were those forty odd
young Argonauts who sat in those pews!
Not one of them theu could bake disown
bread, tnrn a flapjack, re-seat his trousers
or wash his shirt. Not one of them had
dug even a post bole. All had a vague
sort of imprvssiou that California was a
nutshell of a country and that they would
see each ot her there frequently, and event
ually ail return home at or about the
same time. How little they realized
that one was to go to the northern and
one to the southern mines and one to re
main in San Francisco, and the three
never to moot asain! What glittering
gold mines exist.nl in their brains even
during the preaching of that sermon!
Hole where the gold was put out by the
shovelful, from which an occasional
bowlder or pebble was picked out and
flung away. :
The young Argonaut, church being !
dismissal, took his little stiff, shiny plug j
and went home to the last Sunday tea.
And that Sunday night, on seeing her i
home from church for the last time, he i
was allowed to sit up with her almost as
long as he pleased. The light glimmered
long from the old homestead front parlor
wiudow. The cold north wind without
roared among the leafless sycamore and
crashed tae branch together. It was a
sad, sad pleasure. The old sofu they sat
npon would be sat upon by them no more
for years. For years? Forever in many
c-aaea. Today, old and gray, gaunt and
bent, somewhere in the gulches, "up
north" somewhere, hidden away in an
obscure miniug camp of the Tuolumne,
Stanislaus or Mokelumne, np in Cariboo
or down in Arizona, still he recollects
that night as a dream. And she? Oh,
she dried her eyes and married the stay-at-home
6ve years after. A girl can't
wait forever. And besides, bad reports
after a time reached home about him.
He drank. He gambled. He fonnd fair
friends among the senoritas. And, worse
than all. be made no fortune.
By spnug most of the Argonauts had
departed With them went the flower
of the village Their absence made a
big social gap. and that for many a day.
The girls they left behind tried for a
time to liveon hope, and afterward "took
up" and made the most of the younger
generation of boys.
After many months came the first let
ters from San Fraucisco, and then siieci
niens of gold dust and gold pieces. The
gold tiust came in quills or in vials,
mixed with black sand
In the course of two years a few of the
"boys" came straggling back. The first
of these arrivals. I remember, walked up
our main street, wearing on his shoul
ders a brilliant hued Mexican serape. It
created a sensation. All the small boys
of the village "tagged on behind him," a
sort of impromptu iruard of honor. The
geraiye was about all he did bring home.
He talked a great deal of gold and
brought specimen, but not in sufficient
q.11Un.ity to pay all outstiiuding bills.
The next of the returned was a long.
paunt, vcllir.v case of Chargres fever.
He brouu'lit only i;loom. Alone in 1833-1
came a few of the more fortunate who
had made a "raise." Two returned and
paid up their creditors in full who had
been by creditors given over. But few
came to remain. They "staid around"
home a few weeks, turned up their noses
at the email prices asked for drinks,
cigars and stews, treated everybody,
grew restless and were oflf again.
Sometimes on visiting my native vil
lage I stand before one of those old
fahhioned houses, from whose front door
thirty-fonr years ago there went forth
for the last time the young Argonaut on
his way to the ship. There is more
than one such house in the village. The
door is double, the knocker is still upon
it, the window panes are small, the
front eate is the same and up to the
door tne vie stones lie upon the walk.
, Rnt jthin ..n are strangers.
The father and mother are past anxious
inquiry of their ton. The sisters are
married and live, or have died, elsewhere.
A new generation is all about. They
never heard of him. The great event of
that period, the sailing of that ship for
California, is sometimes recalled by a
few a few rapidly diminishing. His
name is all but forgotten. Some have a
dim remembrance of him. In his time
he was an important young man in the
Tillage. He set the fashion in collars
and the newest style of plugs. O fame,
how fleeting! What is a generation? A
puff. A few old maids recollect him.
What a pity, what a shame that we do
all fade as a leaf I

Borne mouths ago Prmnling Elder F.
A Burdick called a meeting of all the
Methodist pastors of the Aberdeen dis
trict in South Dakota, and put before
them the plan of sowing acres of wheat
for the liquidation of the church debts.
The pastors took to the idea, and after
talk with their people found the farmers
would furnish the laud aud do the work
if the church would furnish the seed.
The general societies of the church,
which have their headquarters iu the
east, then took hold of the matter, aud
shortly announced that the money for
the seed should be forthcoming.
The Rev. Mr. Burdick said: "We hope
to have at least forty acres of wheat on
every charge in the Aberdeen dUtrict,
aud on some as many as sixty. As u
matter of fact the church at Bath lias
already started the ball rolling with
sixty acres. The income from this source
will be applied altogether toward the
payment of church debts, and 1 confi
dently expect to see several cleared away
before another winter." Cor. Minneap

At Seattle tiiere is about to be put Into
Operatiou a novel method of running
electric cars up steep grades. The
electric railway there has a very
steep grade about BOO feet long, and
It has been found that the motors
ou the cars are inadequate to sur
mount the bill. To correct the difficulty
a small conduit about two feet square is
constructed, and in this is to r Ui a small
car as a counter balance. Two ropes
will be attached to the counter balance
our at the top. When au ordinary car
is attached to the rope the counter bal
ance car runs down the hill, but when
the car reaches the top of the hill it nuts
down on the other side, and aided by the
motor, it pulls up the counter balance
car which is now ready to take up an
other car. Boston Transcript.

What is more beautiful for a low screen
around the kitchen windows than sweet
peas. If the kitchen is on tho sunny
side of the house they will luxuriate with
no other fertilizer than the soap suds of
the weekly washing. The seed should
be planted very early iu the season, m a
rich, sunny place, as deep as six or eight
inches, borne floriculturists plant them
in the fallputting them down the depth
of ten inches and corering the ground
with rich fertilizer. They must be given
something for support as soon as they
are out of the ground. Buehes may be
used for this purpose, but a wire gauze
of large mesh, painted a medium shads
of green, is prettier than anything else.
The new varieties of sweet peas are con
siderably larger than the old varieties
and will cover a trellis from four to six
feet in height. A mixture of black-purple
sweet peas with the old fashioned
rose and white "painted lady" looks very
prU on such a trellis. New York Trib-
