CHANCE FOR INVESTORS,
Flattering ' Report Upon the Property of the
Chiapas Plantation and Investment Co.
The report of the committee of busi
ness men eent to Mexico to investigate
the property of the Chiapas Bubber
- Plantation and' Investment Company
bus just been made public. The doon
merit is an interesting one and gives
. valuable data concerning the enterprise
conducted by the company named.
The property of the company consists
of a plantation of 24,000 acres of the
choicest robber land of Mexico, upon
which over 700,000 vigorous yonng
robber trees now thrive. On the plan
tation also are numerous mahogany
trees, some of -which are of piodigioni
growth, tbns demonstrating the rich
ness of the soil. The property is lo
cated in the department of Falenqne,
state of Chiapas, and: it is unquestion
ably adapted to the productions of rob
ber and the growth of hardwood timber
trees of great variety.
"The committee of investigation con
sisted of Judge Lucien Shaw, Post
master O. VV. Maulsby, Rev., L. M
Hartley, of Redlands, Cat; E. A. Gir
viu and C. A. Westenberg. They visit-
ed the property during the current
year, and in their report the informa
tion is vouchsafed that the rubber tree
of the variety known as the Castilloa
Elttstica is indigenous to the country
'" and especially to the lands lying along
the river Michol, on which the prop
erty of the company has a wide front
age. Under one of these trees 1,467
young rubber plants were counted, all
- of which had sprouted from the seed
that had fallen from the tree during
the present year. The trees bloom
" in their fifth year, and may be safely
tapped the vear following. Nurseries
have been established for . the propa
gation of rubber trees, and all are
thriving. A large force of men are
employed in building roads, planting
trees and developing the property
Managing Director J. W. Ellsworth is
now on the property, and his careful
attention to the affairs of the company
has received the warmest commenda
tion of the directorate. The committee
pronounces the proposition of the Chi
apas Bubber Plantation and Invest
ment Company to produce robber for
sale by cultivating the trees in large
numbers as a feasible and practicable
enterprise. The only trouble thus far
encountered has . been the scarcity of
- labor, but plans for overcoming this
have Leen perfected. It offers excel
lent returns for the investment of small
capital, and an investment of $2.50
month for forty-eight months will in
mre a hne annual income after six
years. The company has a guarantee
ttock depcsit of $100,000 with the
American Bank and Trust company, of
Ban Francisco, as an evidence of good
' faith with investors. '..
Ihe officers of the company are: It.
B. Jionestell, president; L. S. Sher

Recent improvement in telepboto
cameras are said to have obviated the
old difficulty which required long ex
posures, and have renderedJtjossible
to take pictures with such cameras as
quickly as with those of ordinary con
struction. The improvement has been
effected by placing a tube, containing a
positive lens at one end and a negative
at the other, in front of the ordinary
lens of the camera. - '.
It is with some surprise that' one
reads In a recent report of the director

and this Is largely true. And yet birds
like ducks, which cleave the air with
the speed of an express train, have 'the
long bones filled with marrow or satu
rated with fat, while the lumbering
hornbill, that fairly hurtles over the
treetops, has one of the most complete

and the ungainly pelican Is nearly as
well off. Still it is but fair to say that
the frigate bird and turkey buzzards;
creatures which are most at ease when
on the wing, have extremely light and
hollow bones, But comparing one bird
with another the paramount import
ance of a pneumatic skeleton to a bird
is not as evident as that of a pneumatic
tire to a bicycle. - .
THE WRONG ENVELOPES.
A Little Mistake that Cost Senator
. . Chandler Some Uneasiness.
Senator Chandler, of New Hampshire,
is known as one of the most exact and
painstaking of men. He rarely makes
mistakes, and has little patience ; to
spare for those of others. But the wily
and careful Senator was recently guilty
of a blunder which cost him much trou
ble to rectify. ' It was nothing more or
less than .exchanging envelopes upon
two letters written about the same mat
ter. The story as related -by his very
dear friends runneth thus: -
Once upon a time Chandler received
an Invitation from Senator Fry e to go
up to one' of the Maine lakes and enjoy
a spell of hunting and fishing. Politics
would,-of course, come up during the
quiet evenings. Senator Chandler had
other plans, and thereupon he indited
two letters, one to his wife, which ran
to this effect:
'My Dear Lucy: I have received ;an
invitation from Frye-o go up with him
into Maine for a hunting and fishing
trip; but I shall not accept . Frye Is
temperance crank and never has any
thing for himself or friends to drink.
and therefore I have got out of the
thing as diplomatically as I can. - There
is not much enjoyment under the cir
The letter .then ran on to detail other
The letter -received by Mrs. Chandler
ran merrily along these lines:
'My Sear Frye: I received your in
vitation and am very sorry that I can
not accept; You know Mrs. Chandler Is
very disagreeable about such things,
and so I must decline. Some other time,
when I can get up a good story to justi
fy the fun." ..v
The first Intimation which Senator
Chandler had of his error was an Indig
nant missive from the wife of his bosom
berating him for bis ungallant conduct
In holding her up to his friends as
disagreeable woman. 5
Senator Frye, fortunately for Chan
dler, held his peace, as he did not know
whether or not the epistle .was loaded.
and fancied that the contretemps might
be merely one of Chandler's little jokes,
which Would have an ending disastrous
to tntermeddlefs. The truth of the that-
ter Is that Senator Chandler is just as
much of a teetotaler as his confrere
from Maine, but the other Senators who
have heard of the affair are chaffing
him unmercifully. Success. . :
TERRACES. OF NEW ZEALAND.
Pink and White Cliffs Are Again Mak
ing; Their Appearance.
Henry M. Cadell, a Scotchman - who
some years ago wrote one of the best
condensed accounts of our Yellowstone
Park, has been visiting the volcanic
zone In North Island, ' New Zealand,
where he caught glimpses of the pink
and white terraces that were burled out
of sight fourteen years ago. This re
gion is a land of wonders. No part of
the world, except the Yellowstone Park,
Is so conspicuous for hot springs and
geysers. They burst from the ground
endlessly diversified in form, size and
chemical composition. Long before
European settlers saw New Zealand the
thermal and mineral waters attracted
the natives who had discovered their
curative properties. Mr. Cadell . says
that some sanatorirjms have' now been
erected here and are. visited by many
New Zealanders and foreigners.
Mount Tarawera, about- 3,000 feet
high, .was supposed to be extinct till
1886, when one winter's night It sud
denly awoke. " The natives who live
around the shores of the beantiful lake
of the same : name 'at the foot of the
volcano told Mr. Cadell that eleven days
before the catastrophe they saw a spec
tral canoe floating in the heavens above
the lake. They had never seen any
thing like it before and they believe the
spectacle was a forewarning that some
terrible "event would occur. Mirages
are. sometimes seen In that region. The
canoe may have been merely a phe
nomenon of this sort or perhaps only a
curiously shaped cloud.
The explosion came with scarcely a
moment's warning. A tremendous
shock disturbed the entire, region and
the ash-covered summit t the volcano
was blown into the air to a height of
20,000 feet visible for 150 miles. Flam
ing scoriae and a deluge of ashes fell
in dense showers on the surrounding
district Many villages were crushed
beneath the - weight of dry ashes or
burled under heaps of mud. Many
places were burled deep under layers of
volcanic dust - - ; v
One of the most regrettable features
of the explosion was the destruction of
the "Wonder.of Wonders," the famous
mineral spring which filled a crater
about 650 feet in circumference and,
overflowing, its 'transparent, alabaster
like margin fell in thin azure sheets
from basin to basin. As it fell the wa
ter, saturated with silica and sulphur
ous substances, became cooler and grad
ually changed color from the sapphire
tints of the upper basin to turquoise
blue lower down and a slightly,azure
shade where the waters entered the
lafce. These "white and pink terraces,""
as they were called, were among the
most beautiful of sights and few for
eigners going to New Zealand-failed to
pay them a visit' The terraces were
blotted out beneath a heat of scoriae.
Mr. Cadell "brings the interesting news
that here and there these gorgeously
colored rocks are again coming into
view and It Is evident from his descrip
tion of the region in its present aspects
that the phenomena of this wonderland
will always continue to rank among the
most remarkable of nature's spectacles.

Performed by Laymen in the Cages oi
A few days ago a Parisian butcher,
for a wager, entered a cage In which
three large lions were inclosed, drank
a bottle of wine and played a game of
cards with the beasts' tamer. - When
he was about to leave he thrust a wine
glass under the nose of one of the
animals, and,. as a result, the lion leap
ed upon the man and mangled him
fearfully before the tamer could Inter
fere. , The terrible scene was witness
ed by a huge audience In a menagerie
at a village near Parjs.
A pretty Irish girl had a queer whim
of this nature during the past summer.
She had been asked to become the wife
of a young solicitor, and she promised
to give him an answer the next even
ing n the tent of a traveling menagerie
at the conclusion of the performance.
When the -would-be benedict arrived
on the scene he was thunderstruck to
see the yonng lady smiling sweetly at
him behind the bars of a cage In which
were two 'full-grown lions. - Although
she promised to marry him If he enter
ed the cage he swung round on his
heels and disappeared without a word.
Herr Becker of Vienna, an" eccentric
man of considerable means, took it Into
his bead to spend the last few days of
his.-life in a cage of lions. When be
knew his endrto-"Be near he had his
bej removed into the cage, and In this
queer bedroom he lay .for one week,
when he died. -''
During the. visit of a menagerie to
Salem, Mass., last spring a young Iad.v
of 24 made up her mind to enter
tiger's den and. in the presence , of tht
savage beasts, knit, a scarf -for theii
master. ''. The tigers y endeavored . tt
spring upon her when she entered tht
cage, but the tamer beat them back.
Presently they began to toy with the
ball of wool that was used In the mak
ing of the scarf. - The plucky young
woman remained In the cage for two
hours, and before she left it she placed
the scarf she had knitted wKh her own
hands round ihe tamer's neck.
Ill Luck of Peacocks' Feathers.
There is at least one house in London
where you will as soon see a python as
a .peacock's s reamer. xne drawing
room was once decorated with a frieze
of them, biade into, fans, and from that
moment the Shadow of Death descend
ed 6n the house. The master of it, his
sister and two sons died in little more
than a year, and then an explosion of
gas in the hall, burned the servant al
most to death. But the malign Influ
ence of the peacocks' feathers was ex
hausted, and they perished by their own
act . Though the -drawing-room door
was shut the fiery blast rushed in over
the top of it and, flying round just be
low the ceiling, .burned them all - to
ashes. No other damage was done in
the room, and it was some years before
-t-there was another death in the family.
