Wheu he has someih'ng im oortsnt to attend to the next day, he vrites himself a postal-curd, reminding iiim of the matter, and, rinding the ard among the mail the next morn ing, attends to it the Ert thing. A man of Grant County, Wiscon--in, drained off his fith-pond thet ther 'ay, and in the bottom he found foui silver 'watches and chains and a large uumber of tilver spoons, knives aud forks: It is supposed that a burglar, rinding himself closely pursued, threw the plunder in the pond to get rid of it. Queeu Victoria has now reigned over England longer than any mon arch but two Henry III. and Georg III. She overtook Quetn Elizabeth ;-ix years ago, and has outdone Edward III., who only reigned 148 days ovtr naif a century. If she lives a few years longer Victoria will have reigned longer than any li.yal per&onxge in history. . M id.

John Leontirdy was fishing with a sein in the river at Matauzas, Fla., a few days ago, when an enormous saw hh rn into the net. The fish etiug skd fiercely, and cut the net up badly, but on'y eueceeded in entangling it stlf in the ineehes more securely, and was finally captured. It was meas ured and found to be 13 feet and 1 inch iu length. Some of the greatest men the world ever saw were superstitious. Napo leon Bonaparte was a believer in omens ; the -great Duke of Welling ton would not offer bat'le on any day that he met or saw a yellow dog cross his path ; Hannibal used to get out ot his camp-bed backward eo as to insure good luck for the day, and Frederick the Great, carried a rabbit's foot to guard against evil. A curiosity in Norwich, Conn., is a oiie-legged English sparrow which has a nef-t on the crown ot a column in i lie front porch of 4he City Hall. He isn't worth much at building a nest, but he can help a little about hutching and making himself generally useful on one leg. His mate had to build the nest unassisted, but he furni hed hi r with lively advice, and she seems to think as much of him as th.ugh he had two legs. The old-st merchtnt vessel, with one exception, now in actu.il service, is the schooner Good Intent. She was built by Clapp fc Lorine, in Brain tree. M assachusetts, in lot J, and was originally a slop, with tquare stern and no figurehead ; her length, 48 feet ; her breadth, 16 feet; her depth, 4i feet, and her measuse, 29 tons. The home port of the Gfiod Intent, accord irg t the list of 1SS6; was Camden, Me. A prominent engineer says tnat n will be noticed that most boiler explo sions come, like black coffee, right after dinner. The reason for this, as he explains it, is that the water in the boilers is in perfect readiness to become steam, and would be such but for the pressure of the actual steam on top of it. When the dinner hour is over and the men and machines begin to work again, the valves are quickly opened. the steam rushes out, and the water suddenly becomes steam. As steam has 1,700 times the expansion of water the effeat is an explosion. , . PACIFIC COAST HEWS. NEW BORAX MINE FOUND. The Sealing: Fleet. Striking- Seamen. . Lighthouse Contract..

C, with 2,5tK) Kkina as the season's catch. The little vessel looks trim and neat after her cruise aud made th? trip down in fifteen days, clost-retfed all the way. The Triumph left Victoria on May 5, but did not sail from the west const uutil the 24th of May, owing to difficulty in secur ing Indian hunters. The hunters comprised eleven Ind'.ans and two whites, and one of the latter secure! 550 seals of the total catch. Oil Queen Charlotte islands CG7 seals were taken. The weather was very severe during the wlulu time in Behring sea nud on August 5 the worst gale ever known occurred there. It was during this storm that the whaling vet-sels were lost. Several schooners were, spoken he fore and after going into the sea. The Mary Ellen on August 2J had 1,U0 seals. While out hunting an Indian was accidentally killed ly the hunter in the boat. The lat'er laid his rifle :cros the th waits, aud it suddenly disch.irgt d, the shot entering the In dian's sjdt. He died two hours after wards and his body was pieserved in alt and lauded at hi home at Aelia let. The Maggie Mac on August 7 had 647 skins, and the Favourite on July 25 had CG4 skins. An Indian died on this vessel from bl.tck men sles. The Americau schooner Annie, of San Francif-co, on "the 23ih ( f July nad 700 skins. The. Viva, on the 25th of June, just entering the sea, had a catch of 400. Her coast catch wa- 750 eking. It is thought that the schooners will all have fair catches this year. O.hers of the fleet aie ex pected to arrive dady. Striking- Benraen. Coasting seamen are on the verge of inaugurating another strike, and freights are going down. Seamen are demanding 50 for the voyage from Port Townsend to Sau Francisco. The schooner Wm. Benton, lumber-laden for Brisbane, is in trouble with the union seamen. The crew was slupped in San Francisco for the round voyage to Australia at 1-5 er month. The union agent threatens bloodshed un less the men are paid $5, more per month. The revenue cutter is guard ing the vessel and will probably ac company her to sea. I.lKhtlionse Centracli Awarded.

Certain comniercUI circles at San Francisco are much interested in the recent discovery of borax in the Bay .f Lomrr ranch, Curry county, Or. T he steamer Jfewebov anchored in the Bay of Lomar ranch and discharge 1 cargo and took on board the first ship ment of borate of lime. 1 his borate of lime is suncrior in quality to any hitherto discovered, according to the analysis of Prof. Price. The deposit is volcanic, the borate occurring in boulders varying in size up to 2,0tK) iHiunds weight, imbedded iu volcanic mud. The area of the deposit has been determined to be halt a mile in length and 200 yards in width and thirty feet in depth. The discovery is considered if importance to the commercial world, for the mine is so close to the coast that a shell can be thrown from it into the water, so that the expen sive item of land carriage, which has handicapped the borax industry of California and Nevada, as well as oi Italy, Asia Minor, Chili and Thibet, io longer stands in the way. Vessels drawing three fathoms, of water can go within three hundred yards of low water mark. -The bay, which forms a portion of a ranch of 1,200 acres, is half a mile In width, with good anchorage, and is protected both from the northwest and southwest. A townsite will be laid out and a wharf built, and min ing operations vigorously proceeded with at once. JL New Pump. A new pump lor high, service has been shipped from .Lockport, New York, for the Portland Water Works.

For the present the high service, will be kept up by direct pressure during the day, ana water win tie pumpeu into the reservoir at night. - I here are numerous demands! for extension of the water service, aud as soon as pipe can be had the laying oi eighteen miW of new nmiua will be begun. The city is extending in all direc tions, and water is demanded at the north end on the heights and at the south end. Next summarthe c'-ty will use 10,000,000 gallons per day, and it will tax the pumps at the woiks to their utmost capacity to furnish the npply. The cost of fuel alone next year will amount to $35,000. There will be no pump in reserve as there should lie, and if any accident should hupiK.ii, the water supply would run short. A Collision Avoided. Tne Umatilla "arrived at Victoria, B. C, from Sau Francisco aa-J reports hat while steaming t-lowly through r fog 100 miles from San Francisco, a steamer's whistle was heard. The Umitilla whistled the unseen steamer to pass to the starboard, but no notice appeared to be taken by the other vessvl, and in a few minutes she crossed the bows of the Umatilla. The distance between the vtssels was less than fifty feet. An accident was avoided by the captain of the Uma- t'lla r versing the engines when the whistle w is first heard. The Uma tilla st -pped, and the capt -tin did everything to save the vessel. The vessel was the steam schooner Green wtoJ.of San Francisco. Prospecting- for' Rlark. t'od. H. HelJensoii spent four weeks on Queen Chailotte islands prospecting and trading, and exploring for black cod banks. He succeeded in taking live or six barrels of black cod, the finest fish in the Pacific, in two days. The weather wai very rough, and tbe fishing was -done in a cuntie, in 250 f. it boms of water. The cod were lo cated without difficulty, and fish found to he Tery plentiful. Heldeu son is of tbe opinion that a good bus iness can be doue in deep sea fishing.

Smith is mortally wounded, aud the injuries to the other seventee wounded are trilling. Seven Colored Men Killed. A fearful batllo between whiUs and blacks took place at Hilliardsvi':le Ala., in which seven colored men were killed. The trouble grow out of the fact that a while man refused to al low his well to be longer used by a crowd of camp-meeting negroes. One of the negroes expressed a determina tion to have some of the water, and the white man drew a pistol and shot him in the neck. that night a gang ot negroes visited the house and dared the white man to come out, but he re fused to do bo, and after shooting holes in his windows and doors they left. The next night a gang:, presumably friends of the white mail, vuiled the negro camp and left several dead bod ies as a reminder to other members ol the camp-meeting crowd. ..The Sprinter Record Itroken. Schifferstern, the California amateur sprinter, broke the 100-yard record 1-5 of a second, at St. Louis, Mo., his time being 9 4-5 seconds.

Deer are seen nearly every day-in the vicinity of Bangor. Me., and seem to be gaining confidence in man. A fine specimen was seen grazing in a pasture a few days ago by a man driv ing past, and the animal did not leave at his approach. Expert riders say there is really no "lady's horse." as any good bore is as much suited to a skillful female rider as to a man. Certain 'kinds of horses are best .suited to certain kinds of riders, men or women, that is all. A gastronomic novelty at a recent dinner given by a member of a hunting club was a young fox standing among high grasses. The fox was formed of turkey boned and jellies, the shading of the animal being done by the darker meat, and the high grasses were com posed of the .different kinds of salads. A Pittsburgh man said that a cer tain woman was "sourer than vinegar, and it cost him two hundred and fifty dollars to settle the case. The widow didn't feel hurt at all. but she said she'd be doggoned if she could have English as she is spoke abused after that fashion. In England there Is just space enough between the edge of the rail road station platform and the foot boards of the passenger cars to let an unwary traveler fall between and be ground to pieces by the moving train. An accident or two has happened, and an agitation has bejmn in favor of re form in either the fewtboards or the platforms. "In America," the reform ers urge, "such an accident could not hanoen." . A careless . or kw -iiker should never be tolerated on the "flairy farm. While the cow relaxes toe muscles of her uddef to "give down" the milk, the bag should be relieved as rapidly a-e possible. If the milking is prolonged the cow will hold up her, milk, simply because she istired of tbe otlier posi tion. Some of the milk will not then be secured, and remaining in the ud- der, will have its wejl understood ef fect of making the ccw go dry. A cow always milked rapidly will give more and maintain the milk flow longer than if subjected to. the op posite treatment. RUSSIAN DESPOTISM. Oaorg-o Kaiau Explavtns Why Bosstaos Do Not Kmla-rmt. I have been asked many times by friends in America why intelligent and liberty-loving Russians do not get out of such a country. Many answers might tje given to this question, but perhaps the most comprehensive and cogent of them will be found in Sec tions S 25-5 23 of the Russian penal code, which are as follows; , Section 325. Whoever leaves the fatherland and enters the service of a foreign Government without permis sion of his own Government, or be comes a subject of a foreign power, such person, . for violation of h!s al legiance and his oath shall be deprived of all civil rights and expelled from the limits of the empire forever. If he returns, he shall be exiled to Si beria for life. - Secttom "S2& Whoever leaves the fatherland and does not return at the summons of the Government shall for this disobedience be deprived of all civil rights, and expelled from the lim its of the empire forever unless, with-' in a period to be fixed at the discre tion of a court, he shows that his dis obedience was due to eanses which were beyond his control, or which mit igate his guilt. Until he shall make such proof, he shall be regarded as 1 missing, and his property shall be con trolled by the bureau of guardianship. - Section 327. Any person who, with out permission of the Government and without adequate reason, lives abroad beyond the period fixed by law -for per sons of his station shall also be regard ed as missing (literally, "absent with out news,") and bis property shall bs taken in charge by the bureau pi guar dianship. , . Section 828- Any person who per suades a subject of the empire to emi- . grate to another country shall be pun ished with penal servitude in a con vict company for not less than twelve nor more than eighteen months, or be banished to Siberia for life. Under one cf the above-quoted sec tions (826) Turgenief, while living in Paris in 18C3, was summoned to St. Fstersbarg to answer before the Di recting Senate for something that bt had writ-ten or said. One can see from his letters to a friend, P. T. Annenkoff, how humiliating and , exasperating obedience was to him, bnt he obeyed. The Government does not recognize the right ef its subjects to go abroad or to live abroad without its permis sion; and if, therefore, a Russian takes refuge from oppressioa iu a . freer country, he must face the prospect of expatriate n. outlawry, the loss of all the property left behind him, and exile to Siberia if he ever returns." Few people are - willing to separate them selves for life in this way from friends, relatives, home, eountry and all that a man. naturally holds dear. What alternative, then, is left to the oppressed whea oppression becomes intolerable? They must either submit or fight; and if they are not willing to submit and are not able, under the provisions of this eode. to oppose tyranny bj peaceful collective action, they will inevitably resort to violence and fight, singly or in small groups, as they are now fight in?, until they go to Siberia in leg-fetters or perish on the scaffold.

In almost-all the recent attempts to explain the unpopularity pf marriage it seems to have been taken for granted that women's feelings with regard to it are uniform.' It is certainly not true, however, that all women are waiting with "bated breath and wh"- -pering humbleness" for an advanta geous offer of marriage. The feelings of women are Changing, and the old ideas as 'to women and their social functions cn no longer be takes for granted. .Woman is now a worker and a tbinktr. and marriage for edn cated women is only one of many pos sible oionpations; and educated wom en may be excused if" they regard it the least desirable ef them. A woman who becomes a teacher, who en ters one of the professions, or takes a com mercial position lives a life of dignity and freedom. In politics, in litera ture, in science, in art and in social Intercourse she has .a thousand oppor tunities of distinction and' pleasure which would be denied her if she be came a mother. She is - net at the mercy of a titan's moods and humors. She is not a aurse and a drudge, but for all practical purposes-a man and a citizen. She mixes freely with men; she profits by their conversa tion; she joins hem in their enjoy ment, and she' co-operates -with them in their social duties. Her life is a life of freedom, variety, energy and resource. Her character becomes strengthened by the demands upon her; her intellect Is enlarged by the problems she is called upon to solve; and as new and more important duties devolve upon her she is qualified to ac--cept them with courage and discharge them with skilL In a word, the edu cated women of to-day prefer freedom and the friendship of men to-the prac tical slavery of the marriage bond, and In proportion as other careers are opened up to them it may be safely said that the attractions of marriage will still further decrease.
