A Terrible eed.
The cabin of Marie Ilerthune, of
Pittsburg, Kan , widow of Louis Ber
th uoe, one of the miners killed in the
Fronteau explosion, was discovered to
be on fire. Before the il.mes were ex
tir.gimed the widow and four of her
children were burned to death. The
eldest child, a girl of 9 years, who suc
ceeded in escaping, said her mother
sent each of the children off to bed
with a kiss and then sat down near the
stove. The girl could not sleep, and
lay watching her mother, whe, after
singing for some time, took a can of
coal oil and poured it over herself,
lxd clothes and children. The grief
stricken woman then set fire to some
pieces of paper and scattered it about
the room, and soon the whole place
was in flames. The girl jumped from
bed and boiled for the half-open door.
Her mother, whose loose dress was
burning fiercely, caught her in her
arms and tried to prevent her escape.
The j;irl fought for freedom, her strug
gles being strengthened by tne death
shriek of the other children, who
were writhing iu the flames tint were
fast consuming tae cabin. Mrs. Btr-
thune passed her arais around the
struggling child's body, and, unmitid- j

her, endeavored to hold her, but her
strength soon gave way before the aw
ful torture. The girl finally made one
more tflort to tear herself from the,
maniac. Released from the arms of
her mother, the girl 6tggered through
the door and fell headlong into a ditch,
from which t-he was rescued a few
minutes later by a party of miners.
Kidnaped a School ilrl.
Nelson Moore, a widower with six
children, living near Huntersrille, ;
Pocahontas County, W. Va , a few
days ago stole a fourteen-year-old
daughter of M. . Gordon from
school, and hid with her in an unfre-
quented oomt in the mountains. He
started to leave the Btate with her,
but was captured near the Virginia
line by a party who had been follow
ing him, and was lodged in jail at
Hunteisville. The girls father was
with the pursuers and fired two shots
at Moore, neither taking effect.
Moore wanted to marry the girl, and
has dodged her steps for two years.
Chopped Ills Head Off.
George Wetherell, of Denver, Col.,
induced Charles McKane, of Pueblo,
to start with him for the mountains
to visit a mining camp. Nothing
more was heard of McKane until bin
mutilated remains were found in
Beaver Creek. Histiead had almost
ixen severed with an ax, while his
body was shockingly mangled. Weth
erell had murdered his victim while
he slept.. He then abstracted $238
from McKane's pocket, stole his team
and drove to Denver. He could not
satisfactorily account for the team,
and the police arreBted him on sus
picion of being a horse-thief , but when
a bloody ax was found in his wagon it
appeared certain that he committed
murder. When the news of McKane's
deatli was received the suspicion was
verified. Wetherell was sent to the
penitentiary ou a life sentence eigh
teen years ago for the murder of a
sheep herder, but, under the law passed
two years ago, making twenty-five
years the maximum imprisonment,
Wetherell, with his commutations for
good behavior, secured a release. He
was taken to Canyon Ci y and placed
in the penitentiary, as there was talk
of lynching him.
A few days ago the machine works

Samuel Sholly, a prominent farmer
who resides a mile and a half eat c f
Wabash, Ind., arrived in the city in a
carriage with his family and a basket
containing the charred and blackened
bones of his twelve-year-old son. The
family had made an excursion to
Howard County, to visit the family of
Jacob Coomler, fornieriy neighbors of
Sholly. At an early hoar in the morn
ing the two families were awaked by a

Farmers in tho section of New South

But strangely enough he forgets them

Every young person kcoa-s that
nuts, after they have dried somewhat,
ar sweeter than when first gathered.
fi.it the drying process goes on until
tliey, especially chestnuts, become too
hard to be eatable. These and other
nuts can be kept from becoming t.K
dry by mixing them with Sind. If
mixed with an equal bulk of sand, in
a box or barrel, and kept in a cool
place, the uuts .may- le preserved in
an eatable condition urtil spring.
It is important to find how much of
aDy fodder is digested, as well as to
know how much can be grown on an
acre, or eaten by a certain amouut of j
stock, for on the amount digested de i
pends the result in milk or beef. In j
using rough fodder we must add some !
concentrated food to make up for iu S
poverty m certain elements. Bran,
linseed meal and cotton-seed meal an
best to make the rations complete.
Brewers' grains are a cheap milk-pro
ducing food, but at $3 a ton are not
equal to cotton seed at $30 a tou.
That labor on the farm enables the
farmer not only to be repaid for such
expense, but also returns a profit can
be easily shown by a comparison of
crops that demand much labor in
their production and those that call
for but little. A crop of celery, for
instance, is one that keeps the growci
busy, and with extra help, from the
time the seed is planted until it is
finally banked up for bleaching, and
as compared with corn it gives a much
larger pre fit, though requiring more
labor. Tho work is concentrated on a
small arei, and the shovel spade and
hoe mut be used to a great extent.
The crop, therefore, pays a profit on
labor as well as on the materials ef
which it is composed. While it is
proper to economic by using labor
saving; implements, yet where the
cost of labor is one that increases the
profits it is unwise to omit it.
We should preserve with great care
every tree, large and small, beside our
country roads, which are found grow
ing in the right place for shade trees
to stand. " Let those trees be birch,
beeco, maple, ash, elm, pine, spruce,
hemlock, or any other kind. Any
tree is betlor than the. naked fence
and road. Thousands of good trees
by the sides of our roads are sacrificed
to the ax every year, which, if saved
and neatly trimmed and cared Kt.
would make beautiful trees in a few j
veara and cast a refreshing shadow, i
by taking a little pains one will be
surprised to find how many trees can
be found in almost any town by look
ing along tho distance of single mile,
and how many may be saved in a
town in a single year without being at
tho labor of transplanting. Just make
a careful selection of those to be saved
among the muUitudo of small trees
which arc constantly springing up by
the roadside. While from twenty to
thirty feet apart are proper distances
in this work, that rule can not be
strictly observed, bat an approach to
it as near as poseible is desirable.
The first baby born in Denver was
the daughter of a settler named Har
vey, and she was born in 1860 or
thereabouts. In recognition of her
enterprise in being born in tho camp,
public-spirited citizens presented her
with all the land in sight of her
father's cabin. Unfortunately, the
taxes were never paid, and the land,
now worth $2,000,000, fell into other
hands. The first girl who once owned
it all is now a singer in a variety show
in that city.

The World's Richest Men.
The Jxfvite de Dctiz Monties recent
ly contained an article by C. de
Varigny on the money kings of the
United States, which presents curious
ly sounding statistics about the mil
lionaires not only of fail country, but
of tho whole world. According to M.
de YarigTiy, who derives his infor
mation from an English source, the
millionaire begins not with a million
dollars, but with a million pounds
sterling. The statistical table he has
borrowed gives for the whole world
absut 700 millionaires. Of these 200
are assigned to England, 100 to the
United States, 100 to Germany and
Austria combined, 75 to France, 50 to
Russia. 50 to India and 125 to all other
countries. Jay Gould heads the list
(for the year 1134) with a capital
reckoned at 1,875,000.000 francs, and a
yearly income of 70,000,000 frames. J.
W. Mackay comes next with an esti
mated wealth of 1,250,009,000 francs.
Then follows the English Rothchllds
with 1,000,000,000. C. Vanderbilt with

of the passage of troops from afar, but to

and horses on the advance. It consists
of a sounding plate buried in the soil

KITCHEN SUPPLIES OF A RESTAU
RANT ON MOTT STREET.
A Great Variety of Spices aod Coodl

Many of TTlilcla. Are Not Familiar to
Long before Lucullns immortalized him
self by regaling the jeunesse doree of Rome
with his huudj-ed thousand dollar dinners his
prototypes were indulging in the same pleas
ures ou a 'similar scale in Pekin aod Pook
Chow, for gastronomy has been among the
fine arts in China almost from the beginning
of Chinese history. The Chinese chef has an
official status of at least forty centuries' du
ration. Two thousand years before tho Chri
tian era he was zslouuusa as nighty and paid
as liberally as he is today, and now he is ex
ceedingly well paid.
For example, the chef in a restaurant in
Mott street came to New York from San
Francisco under a contract by which ho re
ceives S100 a month, besides his board and
lodging, for his services. AU things consid
ered, this salary la fully equivalent to tho
$5,000 a year paid to such chefs as preside lu
the kitchens of the Hoffman boose, Delmoni
co's, the Union League club and the Vander
bilt mansion. The Mongolian chef, to jadge
by Lee-Ah, who lithe distinguished individual
mentioned, is curiously like bis Caucasian
colleague in that he is digui fled, egotistical,
petulant and thoroughly independent. Un
like the Caucasian, however, the great man
of tho Chinese kitchen believes in working
himself at the simplest tasks In order to keep
himself ia practice.
In taking charge of the kitchen of a great
restaurant his first work is to supply himself
with a great variety of spices and condi
neuts, and in this particular he is fully
qualified to give point to the Jaded sybarites
of the Occident. In his stores will be black,
white and red pepper, as well as the pimento
of the tropics; curry, chntney, mustard,
ginger (the favorite spice of the east), green,
dried, pickled, sweetened and . pulverized;
see-yu. which is tho father of soy and the
grandfather of Worcestershire sance; olive
oil, peanut o:I, cotton seed oil, clarified butter
(the ghee of India); onions, shallots, chives,
leeks, garlii, f a-qiia and sa-qua (highly cul
tivated bitter encumbers; taa-tai, for which
there is no English name; orange and lemon
peel, vinegar, lemon juice, powdered crab
and lobster shells, a curioas preparation con
taining iron, ball a dozen forms of dried
mushrooms, and cot less than tifty powerful
condiments and spices unknown to Americans
and having no English names.
Iu every kitchen is a stock or standard
foods but a few cf which cro familiar to the
American eye. Among the more interestinc
are smoked chicken, duck and pigeon, which.
nniiKe our smoked meats, retain tuo uatural
color and nppearance; shrimps, prawns,
oysters and clams which have been dried by
some nirsterious process, unknown to us,
until they are as hard and durabla es wood;
a fish that suggests sardines in oil, but which
is a foot in length, from t o to three pounds
in wefght, packed in a sardine box a cabic
foot ia sine; dried fishes which range from a
tiny sprat smaller than but similar to the
English whitebait, to a monrfcr eight feet
long, two feet wide, and two inches thick;
preserved cabbage, which is rolled cp so as
suggest a bell of yarn: bean, pea and wheat
gintea ia long candy like sticks, which ere
raal3 by crusuing tho cereal aad removing
the starch by often repeated washings; odd
sausages, of which each one is suspended by
brilliant colored cords, and is stuffed, not
with on indistinguishable hash or paste,
but with altematii'g dice of fat and
lean meat; huge cans filled w,th tho
famous edible bamboo tips, which look
and smell like huge asparagus, but taste
unlike anything ia Christian markets:
water lily leaves, which are used both as a
food and as coloring material, imparting a
beautiful green to any white food with which
they may be cooked; preserved eggs, cf
wnicn eacn one is embalmed la a roach mass
of quick lime, charcoal and fish clue; sea
prouts, which resemble a string bean two
feet in length.
Occasionally In tho wealthiest establish
ments may be seen, the- celebrated birds?
nests, which look for ail the world like irreg
ular masses of coopers' glue; sharks' fins,
which are greenish white pieces of desiccated
soft cartilage; beche-de-la-mer, a mollnsk of
a high order, which is a first cousin of Victor
Hugo's devil fish; and dried sea anemones,
which bear the same culinary resemblance to
birds nests tliat snapping turtles do to the
diamond back terrapin. Some idea of the
luxuriousness of the Mongol is efforded by
the prices he charges for these delicacies.
Dried clams cost f 1 a pound; dried ovsters,
J LOO; sharks' fins, ?3 to ?3, according to
quality ; beche-de-la-mer, from 40 cents to $3,
and birds' tests, from f20 to a dozen.
In Chinese cooking sauces play as import
ant a part as in the cuisine at Les Freres
ProTenceau. For the preparation of these.
as weU as far tbe thickening of soups and the
concoction of "made dishes, there will be
bowlfuls of tho Hi; est wheat flour and
starch, and of that finest of all amylaceous
foods, rice flour. In this and in other re
spects tbe stores of the kitchen contain tbe
same articles as first class American restau
rant kitchens. Whatever is to be found in
our larders finds a place there, and the
numerous articles mentioned add the variety
which is the main distinguishing feature cf
the Chinese cu isine.
The furniture of the kitchen presents a
curious instance of the invasion of the east
by tho west, for the cast iron stove or range
is found beside the brick bench used in
China, which greatly resembles the one rec
ommended by Count flumford in his famous
studies at the beginnins f the century. This
bench is alout four feet high, four feet wide
and from ten to twenty feet ia length. At
one end of it is a large fireplace cylindrical
in shape, two or three feet in diameter and
three feet deep. This is used in roasting.
The remainder of the top of the bench has
several circular openings of different sizes.
In the sides and ends there are smaller fire
places, seldom more than eight inches square.
The fuel used in cooking is kiln dried wood,
hickory or some similar variety being pre
ferred. Harper's Bazar.

is ono relating to tho inspection of butter for
tho repression of fraudulent dealings. By
this, specie! persons are authorized to take
samples of butter in any place, whether the
butter is exposed for sale, stored in a ware

Grit a Well as Flnelc
It Is desirable that we should have grit
ts well as pluck a power to endure, re
sist, take the blows and still persist and
press forward. Pluck is the quality of
pitching in; grit is the quality cf not
backing out. Kovr, we do not expect
every one to have both, grit and pluck;
bet every one ought to have one or the
other; and bo the community, or the so
ciety, or, as we have a habit of saying-,
the commonwealth, shall have both. I
am inclined to think that, personally, I
am decidedly lacking in pluck. I em a
natural coward. I have the pluck simply
ta own fcup my plucslessness. ' When
you set before ruo a new enterprise, I in
always afraid to embark fa it. But once
in, I have grit. I can stick to a job cf
work; and when I fight I always inteadj
win. But I wish I were also plucky. 1
we not generally admire what wo have
not, and rather depreciate what we have?
I admire pluck, and don't knew whether
I admire grit or not. I have a little friend
who ia a little over fear feet tail, and he
