era to ship their gold dust by steamer
from Sacramento to San Francisco.
About 1,(100,000 was mado inonoship

dnzi ii a.-istants. About CO roughs cm-
larknl ou tho steamer under tho guise
of cattlemen aud ruuehmou en routo to
Frisco ou business. Tho trcasnro room
was amidships on tho lower dock. Tho
steaimrsiu those days carried a email
camion at tho bow, which was dis
cliar'i d ou landing, so as to notify tho
fitters. It ulso frightened tho savago
Indiaus, who soon camo to regard tho
'floating housos' with fear und supersti
tion. Warren suspectod a move ou tho
part of tho roughs aud fixed tho guu ou
a pivot, so that it would command the
item of the boat aud tho approach to
the treasure room. Ho heavily loaded
the Kim und then throw iu a handful of j
nails for scattering shot Tho attack, ho I
was informed, was to bo luado at sun- j
down, just as tho boat was rounding
tho Pirate's covo, ubout 30 miles above
S in Francisco. Warren and his men as
sembled iu the bow and soon noticed a
miinbir of men forming ou tho steru of
tho boat ami others joining them from
the cabin above by coming down the back
stairway. Tho cannon was immediately
rt-vcrsctl, and Warren and bis men drew
their revolvers. 'Oo up stairs, or I'll
turn her loose and mow you down liko
wheat!' shouted Warreu as ho stood
reaily to 'let 'er go.'
' 'Tho roughs, seeing that they wero
outflanked, recoiled in disorder, and
semo ran up stairs. Just nt that mo
riant tho boat ran on a sand bar ami
was keeled over, noarly upsetting her.
Tiie roughs wero panic sWieken, doubt
hss thinking this was part of tho pro
cranime, and somo of them jumped
overboard. Tho caunou also went over
hoard. In a few hours, fortunately, an
other buat camo ulong and hauled us off
the bar, and we arrived safely at San
Francisco with our $1,000,000 in gold
du.t. No; those who jumped overboard
did not get back. Wo would not let any
body board us at that stage of tho pro
ceuliims, especially as ws knew who
tin y were. They may Imvo swum ashore,
though." concluded tho forty-niner in
rather doubting tone as to the ulti

of doinohtio peace, ami comfort us the

Imps mnro than any other, characterizes
!lt myown fm

first acquaintance with tho
tomato can chimney was in tho army
in timo of war. And yet even there it
has souio flavor of peaco about it, for '
wo never had ono except lit times when ,
woweroinoru or less settled in damn .
and wero within reach of a settler.
"And the tomato can chimney is by
no means confined to army lifo. It is
built by hunters and campers out, by
squatters and pioneers and by early set
tlers iu now regions pending the build
ing of u more substantial chimney, mid
so I supp'iso it may bo said of tho chim
ney, after all, that wherever it may bo

Ho had a pretty girl with him, and he

tlio round trip tick, t down to i'v'i. Tho
price ouo way by tho caravan route was
I'l'.'O, ju about tlio co.t of a trip
around tho world iu our day. Thaeko-
ray's journey was a matter of months.
Colonel ftcwcomu s a matter of weeks,
that of tliol.a-t Indian uow a matter of
"Lieutenant Nagliorn waj tho man 0
to lay down and establish the caravan
Mute. It soon became a regular freight
and passenger line. It was from Suez to
Cairo, a distance of iO miles, usually
made in about three days. Tho freight
was carried on tlio backs of camels, and
the passengers rode in a rudo diligence
drawn by mules. There wero caravan
saries every fivo miles, where tho mules
wero changed, and nt some of these
there was food to bo had. Tho great
standby was 'spatchcock. ' When the na
tives iu charge of a caravansary spied
an approa.-hing caravan, they instantly
rushed out, cuught smno fowls, wrung
their necks, ami an hour later served
them, scarco dead, to tho travelers;
beneo tho name spatchcock. That jour
ney ueross tho desert was most trying
to women and children, and the railroad
from Sue to Cairo in 1 H.V.I was hailed
as a vast improvement over the caravan
method of travel.
Tell years later camo tho canal. Tho
digging of tlio canal practically do-
st roved Suez, for tho port is somo (lis-
tance from tho city, aud a busy town

Levantines, of till eastern races, aud
tho equally vicious Europeans from ev
ery part oi tno comment sccuieu iu
wako into activity only at tno approacu
of a ship. Then ilaucohouste, gambling
hells mid every sortof evil resort opened
wide their doors to tho delayed traveler.
Perhojis it is better now, or possibly
worse, for in these days a single com
pany pays more than 1 1,000.000 a year
iu tolls, and there is au almost contin
uous procession of ships through tno
"Tho Suea canal is in somo rospeots
tho most wonderful waterway in tno
world. As soon as tho traveler enters it
bo realizes that ho is in tho hands of tlio
French. A French speakiug pilot takes
possession of tlio ship, and all oflicers of
the canal aro Frenchmen. Tho gares, ol
turnouts, where n ship waits to li t an
other pass, aro in tno c-uargo i i uw
French soldiers, and it is charming tc
seo how they beautify thoir arid sur

is watered, it almost bursts with bow
ers, and at overy garo ar a neatly paint
ed littlo house nnd a blooming garden,
while grass edges tlio canal, and tho
dreariest region on eartli is transformed
by French thrift Ono or tne mosi in
trosting sights to tho canal in early
days was to seo ono ship meet another.
Tho passengers on each crowded for
ward with greetings and tlio waving oi
handkerchiefs, and thero wero tears
from tho outward bound ut the thought
of what the homeward bound wero soon
to boo. Tho meeting of ships is now no
longer a novelty. I oneo encountered
tho Khedive Tewfik's yacht, with his
harem on board, ns we rassed through
tho canal. Of courso wo caught no
glimpfO of tho ladies, but Tuwlik and
Do Lesseps, who was bis guest, came
out on tho spouson beam to greet us,
and wo manned tho yards with native
sailors in honor of tho two.

Such a passago of tho Red sea would be
almost intolerable, for tho Seat is op
rressive. and tho monotony of tho arid

Londoner in general are wonderfully
pathetic about mutters which concern
them closely and w hich conduce to their
li'iilth, happiness mid comfort. We

unts of llie dwelling therein. Then
there aro huge sewer idii.-s, which car
ry away for n all that is disagreeable
and unwholesome. We do not say that
our present supply ol gas and water is

with the disposal of our sewago is pet-le.-t,
but at all events they lire on the
highroad to perfection.
It was one day, when cogitating on
the vast machinery requisite to meet the
demands of Londoners, and more espe
cially to keep them in a healthy sanita
ry condition, that 1 was led to visit the
outfall works of Crossness, whero the
sewage from the south side of Londoll
is poured into the Thames. It comes
iiloio; in a sewer II tin t 0 inches iu di
aln,9, r. The main pumps lilt tho sew
age into reservoirs, where the sewage Is
treated eh. uiiciilly with lime and proto
ulphate of ir,,i in the proportion of
lour grains of lime per gallon and ouo
of protosiilphnto of lion. The sewage
in tho course of treatment Hows 11I0114;
Tho How is very slow, in order Unit
the majolilyof solids may be deposited.
It flows finally over a weir wall, and
tbeiice into the river. This is called the
diluent. This treatment necessitates
the use of 15 to IS tons or lime per day,
and t to " tons of protosnlphiilo of iron.
The sewnge is drained oil Iho reservoirs
every two days, and men go down and
thmoiighly clean all the slndgo out,
which is swept down to a siimp and
pumped from thero into tho sludge set
tling channels, where it undergoes 11 lur
Iber draining. It is then let down into
a lowet sl.ulge store and pumped trom
I thero on to ships and taken tu sea. Fif
I teen to twenty thousand tons per week
ot sludge are sent to sea.
Theie are five sludgeships altogether,
which are sent out ut every tide. They
go somo -10 miles away to tho Harrow
deeps. Two engines lire required lor j
pumping up Iho sludge from the reser
voirs lotho slndgu settling channels, and
two for pumping the sludgo from the
sludge store on to the ships. 'I hero lire

Some strange things get Into tlio sew
ers of London, and now and again bu
llies bavo been found. Such are some
of tho most important features of a sec
tion of the great machinery of tlio me
tropolis, which never rests, never sleeps.
Notwithstanding the room which exists
for further improvement in thedisposal
of its sewage, the reduction which has
been brought uliout In the death rate of
London In modem times is as notewor
thy as it Is satisfactory. In tho latter
hull of the seventeenth century the av
erage mortality of Loudon is said to
have been not less than b0 per 1.000,
at tho end of the eighteenth century it
had dropped to 50 per 1,000, while iu
1800 it had falh-n to 10.8 per 1,000.
Tho main intercepting and principal
blanch sewers which have been cnu
structed for tho conveyanco of tho sew
ago of London to tho two outfalls into
the river Thames at Harking und Cross
ness respectively measure aliout HO Eng
lish miles. As illustrating the magni
tude of London, it has been computed
that tho streets und roads within the
metropolis, if placed end to end in one
continuous lino, would measure alsmt
3,500 miles, equal to tho distance from
London to Lund's End, thence across
tho Atlantic ocean to the mouth of tlio
gulf of St. Lawrence in Canada ou tlio
west, or going eustward would extend
across tho entire continent of EuroKi
and beyond tlio Urul mountuius Into
So ono can nnderstnnd at a glance
what it means to control its drainage,
water supply, etc. Supposing we wero
to employ animals to do tho work which
our engines do for us in pumping water
and sewage, wo should require four
times the number of horses in the entire
Kritish army, both at homo and abroad.
This gives some idea of the labor In
volved in giving us our water and tak
inguwny our sewage. Pull Mull Uud-B't-
