The resident of South Thomaston
are, in common with other Maine coat
dwellers, rather behiud in the inarch of
progress, and it doesn't require much to
startle them. The other day a steamer
passing White Head blew very a long
blast from her peculiar sounding chime
whistle, whereat the villagers marveled
greatly, but at night they were posi
tively frightened. A steam yacht in the
harbor 'displayed an electric reflecting
light, illuminating the sea, sky and land,
and not a few of the unsophisticated ua
tives, remembering the unearthly shrieks
of the strange steamer, coupled the two
events and concluded that the universe
was about to collapse.
The innocence of these people will not
seem so very strange when it is remem
bered that many of the natives of Mon
began and other coast islauds have never
seen a horse, a train of cara or a brick
house, never having set foot upon the
mainland. There is a man on Monhe
gau island who knows the Boston and
Bangor, the New York aud Bangor and
all the other steamers that pass the
island by sight, but although nearly
seventy years old, he has never beeu on
board of any kind of a steam craft, and
has not the slightest conception of an

Basket island, was deserted by the only
people who ever had the courage to live
there an old fisherman, hi wife and
daughter. These people lived in an old
tumbledown rookery on the little wind
swept isle, and were veritable hermits.
AN 1'NCCLTlltr.D MAID.
The man fished, while his wife and
daughter carried on the farming opera
tions, which consisted in harvesting
what little coarse hay the island afford
ed and carrying it on poles to the cow
shed. They had no garden, not even a
patch of potatoes, but were merely toil
ers of the sea. The wife had not visited,
the mainland for seventeen years, while
the daughter had passed the entire six
teen years of her life upon the lonely
spot, although tho city of Portland was
almost in sight
The girl was bright, but untutored;
pretty, but miserably clad. She wore
no stockings and knew nothing of hats.
The only relative she knew of outside
the family circle was a half sister, who
she had never seen. Her father said
that this other daughter lived "out
west." She lived iu Kennebunkport,
York county. This daughter of the sea,
much to tho surprise of some yachtsmen
who once landed on the island, was able
to play several popular airs npon an old
She bad picked the music out by ear
after hearing it played by the bauds of
passing excursion steamers. A party of
picnickers who landed there found Bas
ket island deserted. The matted grass
was alive with field mice, aud gulls
perched boldly upon the rotting window
sills of the old house, while in one corner
lay the dilapidated accordion which had
long been the chief consolation of the
lonely fisher maiden.
There is, perhaps, uo more lonely spot
on the whole Atlantic coast of the United
States than Lile au Haut, which lies far
seaward off the entrance to Penobscot
bay. The name given to this island by
the early French voyagers is most appro
priate, for it looks like a mountain half
submerged iu the sea. The people are a
simple, primitive set, and few of them
ever visit the mainland. The island,
with its fish and sheep and blueberries, is
their world, and within its limited circle
they are content
Some queer specimens of humanity
are to be found on Isle au Haut Not
long ago a yachting party went dowa
there on a fishing trip, and after catch
ing enough cod for a chowder went
ashore to procure some milk. The
yachtsmen soon fell iu with a weather
beaten native who was looking along
the shore, and he informed them that
they could get plenty of milk, but that
they would have to wait until his wife,
who had gone blueberrying, returned
and milked the cows. The native led
the way over rocky pastures to a dilapi
dated cottage, and nsherod them into
the kitchen to await the return of "Ma
ria." The floor was scrubbed as white as a
man-o'- war's deck, the cookstove waa
brightly polished and a little plot before
the wiudows was gay with marigolds

The bids for city undertaking, which
were opened in the health office, show a
considerable anxiety on the part of the
undertaker tosecuro the contract. There
were only two bidders, August Leffert
and Henry Snyder, but the low figures
which they quoted leave little room for
other bids. August Leffert offered to
furnish coffins and bury all paiqicrs or
other jierson ordered to bo buried by
the city nt f J..VI for children under VI
years of age and $1.50 for adults.
Henry Snyder's bid was even lower.
Ho offered to bury all piiniors in the city
limits at the rate of seventy cents for
children and eighty-five cents for adults.
Samples for the promised cofhiia to be

are of pine, stained black, with metal

has experienced a remarkable growth,
having increased tenfold since it organ

reach a membership of 20,000. "Ad

the motto of the league, and the good
roads of the country owe their condition
to the efforts of this band of 'cyclists. In
18i0 ninety riders assembled in New

protection and for highway improve

sprung with mnshroomlike growth, un
til its societies extend into all parts of
wheeldom. The practical advantage
of membership consist in the assistance
of the whole body to secure better road

when road privileges are denied riders,
nnd reduced rate at the league hotels,

Shed Her Pfalla Every June.
A Neapolitan physician haa recently
described a wonderful case of hysteria
in one of bis female patients. The case
has been prolonged aud aggravated, tbe
peculiarity being in the fact that the
lady thus afflicted annually (usually in
i the month of J une) shed both finger and
toenails. This remarkable change is
preceded by a tingling sensation, espe
cially in the thumbs and great .toes, fol
lowed with suppuration at the bed of tbe
nail From the tune of the first Uu
gling sensation at the root of the nails, a
week scarcely elapses before every nail
on toe and finger have been spontaneously
abed like the skin of a snake or tbe shell
of a crab. Tbe learned M. D. attribute
this curious affection of tbe nail to a
disordered nerv function. St Looia

The mineral palace now being erected
In Pueblo, Colo., will cost about Co0,

exterior being a series of square column
and beautifully polished stone. The
carving will be ornate. All part of the
building will be made uf the product of
Colorado's initios, the owner iu all the
counties in the state having seut in their
choicest ami richest specimen. Iu tho
interior will bo stvn every variety of
mineral production from stone and coal
to pure gold, the value of which will be
at least 1750.000.
It is intended to lie a permanent ex

choicest tqicciincuH of mineral wealth
from every stale iu the L'uion repre

Early li'st month he went down to Main

his trip he ha not yet fully revealed.
Une thing is certain, he brought back
very few fish, and he had rather be laugh

tongue. Ho may have caught a larga

A firm on Broadway has hit upon a

great inconvenience iu buying steamer
chairs at the beginning of a trip, and in
getting rid of tliem at the completion of
the journey. Realizing that fact, the
firm in question has arranged with near
ly all the European steamships to pro
vido steamer chairs witb detachable
tables, which can bo rented at $1 for the
entire trip. Tlie detachable table i so
constructed that a bottle, glass, cup and
plate can be fitted into it. The table is
mighty convenient to people subject to

that tbe finn which has originated the
business will make money, and plenty of
