ONE TOUCH OF NATURE.
Its Remarkable Effect TJpon a Lot
of Hardy Gold Diggers.
Fifty EnsUsh SUners Tramp Eight Miles
to Hear at -Lark Slug Bough Men
In a Bough Country Hungry for
it Word from Homo.
Xo ope" should think .that he knows
all that it is to be homesick until he
has turned his back not only on home,
but also on native land, says a writer
in the Indianapolis News. Here are a
few incidents that fell under my own
observation during' a sojourn in Aus
tralia. We were gold dig-g-ing on the
banks of the river Lodden, and had
been hard at work for many months.
In those early days nearly all the men
on that particular "dig-g-ings" as, in
deed, on all the gold fields, wee Brit
ish subjects, either from the "old coun
try" itself or from some "Of the North
American colonies. . "
One'. da3f a rumor was circulated
through our camp that an immigrant,
latelj- from England and located some
distance farther down the stream, had
brought with him an English lark.
The news spread-far and wide, from
river to hill and from hill to gulch, and
when the next Sunday forty to fifty of
us went to see the precious songster we
found fully five hundred rough-bearded,
tender-hearted men congregated about
the lucky ower's tent, listening, enrap
tured, to the old familiar trill of the
bird's sweet carol. Many of these
hardy diggers, great, strong fellows,
whom no danger could appall, had
tramped -twenty miles simply to see
and hear a common lark, solely be
cause it came from their own 'Usl-ind
home," and it was nothing less than
pathetic to obsurve how deeply each
one was affected by the liquid, mu.-iioal
notes, calling vividly to mind nevcr-to-!H.-forgotten
joys. I have jeaswi io
know, however, that this seivtunoulal
indulgence cost not a few of the stnr.ly
liritons many an liour of lost tr-ne in
the following week. Thi.5 little inci
dent has been told with faome varia
tions from this, but 1 was there as an
eye-witness, and the facts are as here
stated. I may atld that I saw the own
er of the bird refuse more than one
offer of fifty dollars for his prize. - .
One day it was in 1353, I think a
number of us set off across the ranges
on a visit to the post office at Castle
maine, about eight miles from our own
diggings. In the always present hope
of receiving home letters. Oh, those
monthly trips! Shall I ever forget
them? Each step of the thither jour
ney made light and buoyant by fond
anticipation, each foot of the return
seeming, only too often, a' furlong in
length, dragged out in the weariness
of disappointed hopes! We were a
party of twenty, all stout young- fel
lows under thirty years of age, and, as
we went over the quartz-strewn hills
and through the shadow valleys, all
clothed with a gorgeous profusion of
strange- shrubs and flowers, and saw
myraid birds of brilliant plumage,
from the tiny parroquet to the great
crested cockatoo, flitting about from
tree to tree, while overhead shown the
dazzling rays of an Australian sun, our
spirits rose to the point of ecstasy, "and
each one of us felt sure that this time
he would certainly receive the long-expected
Cheerfully, then, we trudged along
and at last came to the brow of the
heights overlooking the commission
er's headquarters, and there on a level
space in front of the tents, about one
third of a mile from us, were drawn
up, in their scarlet uniforms and with
Hashing arms, some two hundred men
of the British Fortieth regiment of the
Up to this moment none of us were
aware that a single English soldier was
in the colony, and the effect of this un
suspected sight was simply astounding.
Almost so suddenly as if we had run
against a stone wall, our little crowd
came to a dead halt, and while fox a
time not a word was spoken each man
sought to read in his comrades' eyes an
amusing thought to his own overpow
As we stood in a kind of dazed be
wilderment . the splendid regimental
band struck up, and, most strangely,
the musicians selected as the first, piece
""Home, Sweet Home!"' Then, indeed,
"the -fountains of the great deep"' were
broken up and we, roughly clad, clay
begrimed miners threw ourselves upon
the ground, totally overcome by the
rush of tender memories awakened by
the familiar old air, while boyish tears,
of which all forgot to be ashamed,
Vic-iled down each sunburnt cheek. '
For nearly an hour, until the band
had gone through its whole repertory,
we lay there hushed and silent, but oh!
with such unutterable thoughts of far
away homes and loved ones, never,
perhaps, to be again seen. By and by
we rose and wandered slowly down the
slope toward the large canvas tent
which then served as a post office
While we were taking our places in the
rear of the long line of anxious diggers
waiting their . turn at the wicket, a
young fellow of our company wistfully
said: , "Oh, boys, how shall we live
through it if we don't hear from
home?" and the question found, echo in
each expectant heart. But, alas! only
three men of our twenty . received let
, tors that day, and the homesick youth
was not one of them.
As we sadly walked back to camp
our party more nearly resembled a fu
neral procession than a squad of usual
ly reckless miners the three fortunate
individuals considerately restraining
their exuberant joy out of sympathy
for the luckless seventeen.

A Jewish rabbi, lately . deceased, left
the following clause in his will: "To
my dear children I commend the fifth
commandment of the Iecalogue, which
ever was my guide and star. . If they
truly wish to honor my memory let
them preserve peace among themselves
and affection toward my dearly be
loved wife, their noble and unselfish
second mother, to whom they are so
greatly indebted." -
HAVE NEVER BfcEN CONQUERED.
The Heroic- Basques and Their Many Des
perate Wars -with Invaders..
But these people of Spain, and yet
not Spaniards, who are they? Models of
ancient manners, untainted by time, so
marked, so separate as distinct in.
racial characteristics from their near
est neighbors as from the most remote
so rooted to this soil, how shall we
account for them? Velasco, their own
historian.gravelyjtraces their descent di
rectly from Tubal-Cain, wiys the Cosmo
politan. Humboldt calls them Celt-Iberians.
Theory on theory, each one dis
proving the last with equal learning,
has been advanced to account for this
phenomenon. Nothing" now ' seems
more probable . than that they arc a
remnant of the-, troglodytes of the age
of stone, the same with the men whose
bones are found in the caverns of the
Alps and Pyrenees, beside those of the
huge animals they hunted. In this
case their unwritten history dates' from'
twenty centuries before the Christian
There are confused Basque traditions
of the coming of the Phoenicians to
their mountains, and the earliest Ro
man writers have painted in glowing
colors the noble bearing, patriarchal
customs and wise old laws the Phoeni
cians found there. They discovered the
gold and silver mines - and vanished
away in their great star-guided ships.
Wars and dissensions followed; then
silence again till Coesar came. His
lieutenant Crassus reduced Spain to a
Roman province, but Ctesar says: "A
few petty people higher up in the
mountains did not make their submis
sion and sent hostages." Human
poets expand the picture and describe
the Iberians, as they named ' the
Basques, as objects of terror to .all the
world, whom neither hunger, heat nor
cold could conquer, who only gloried
in labors and perils. ' -
Pushed b- the Uomans, they retreat
ed to their fortified towns; pressed by
siege, they withdrew" to the highest
rocks, watched the conflagration of the
towns, and threw themselves, shouting1,
from the craigs, to be dashed in pn-'jes
rather than surrender. ' Mothers
'drowned their sons rather than have
them become slaves. The story of their
steady resistance is nearly incredible.
Taken prisoners, they preferred cruci
fixion to subjection, and died singring- a
paean of joy. Again and again, after
thinking- them conquered, the Korrian
prefects encountered fresh outbreaks,
till at last the Cnjsars were wise enough
to abandon the effort and secure them
as allies. .
As allies, the Basques proved, from
the first, as faithful as they had before
been stubborn. More than once their
unconquerable courage turned the for
tune of battles.' They went to Sicily
with Hannibal, leaving traces of them
selves in Italy, in names -of towns such
as Urbino and Orvieto. Later they
joined.steadily for two centuries in the
strife ' against the Visigoths. At
Kencesvalles, in 778, the Franks touched
them, and the flash that followed still
lights the pass and the cliffs, though
ten centuries have passed since false

DON'T KNOW HOW TO PLAN.
New York's Miserable Tenements the Re
sult of Ignorance of Scientific Planning:.
The greatest evil which ever befell
Jfew York city was the division of the
blocks into lots of twenty-five by one
hundred feet, says Scribner. So true
is this that no other disaster can for a
moment be compared with it. Fires,
pestilence and financial troubles are as
nothing in comparison, for from this
division has arisen the New York sys
tem of tenement houses, the worst
curse which ever afflicted any great
community. The fact that so much of
the land is held in such parcels is our
misfortune, but the obstacle is not insu
perable, as shown by pur office build
ings. The difficulty has arisen and per
sistently flourishes owing entirely to
our lack of knowledge of the art of
scientific planning. For who would
waste money in erecting- unnecessary
walls, halls, etc., if he knew how to ob
tain the same amount of rentable space
much better lighted without them?
By the present system the ground is
incumbed, the light obstructed, and
the structure .rendered unhealthy and
unfit to live in, and all this is accom
plished at a vastly increasing expense
over what the same rentable space,
well-lighted, might be obtained for.
Great sums of money are yearly squan
dered upon making the structures
unfit to live in. Then other great
sums are contributed by charitable
people to relieve the distress which
these horrible structures engender.
Hospitals . are kept . full, children die,
misery, disease and crime flourish be
cause the people are huddled together
without light and air, and all this hap
pens simply because the principles ot
economical planning are not ; under
stood. . .
An Enemy to Cholera.
- So inimical to the cholera bacillus

surface of the fruits they survive "but a
few hours, and even if, placed on the

these fruits no restrictions . are placed

The Sisters of Charity.
The order known as Sisters of Charity
originated in the charitable labors of
Vincent de Paul. Wherever he went
he was accustomed to urge benevolent
women to undertake the relief of the
suffering, but . finding that the work
had not sufficient permanence when
prosecuted by these ' volunteers he re
solved to organize a conventional so
ciety, and did so in 1633. . The first so
ciety had four members, but the founder
lived to 'see twenty-eight large estab
lishments of the order in Paris alone. ..
