Victoria Hale was kitting at the
breakfattt table, ft pout upon her cherry
lips, da ominous wrinkle between her
brows. She looked very pretty, in her
moruinar dress of fluted white lawn,
with a breakfast cup of Swiss muslin
and rose-colored ribbons, that were
peculiarity becoming: to her olive skin
and larger velvety black eyes.
"More money, "Victoria?" he repeat
ed with a scarce I v perceptible knitting
of the brows.
"Are you not getting unreasonable?
Do I not keep you liberally supplied
with all that I have to spare?"

Tui tired of them all," said the
pretty bride. "One can not be con

If you wanted a perpetual change,
a continual whirl of excitement, you
should have married a rich man."
Don't be cross, Johu," said Victoria,
coaxingly. "But you know all our
neighbors about .here are tolerably
well off, and I don't want to be left be
hind. I shall be mortified to death if
I cin't have a croquet party in July."
"I have no esiiecial objectiou to
that," said her husband. "I suppose
it need not necessarily be expensive?"
"Not so very,1' said Victoria. t)t
course we must have a band, aod the
sweets and ices from the coofectioa

What notiseuse. John! Do yon

"Thev would know it was as good
as we could afford."
"And I need ft lace parasol terribly.
And ah. John, I had forgotten about
Mrs. Iacy's cream -colored ponies."
"I hope, for goodness sake, she don't
want you to buy them?"
"No, of course not. But she says I
mav use them while she is at Searboro.
Isn't it kind of her?"
"I dare say it's very kind," said
John Hale, ruefully; "but do yon
chance to know how much a pair of
ponies costs in the keeping to say
nothing of the expense of the groom?"
'-O. if you are going to stoop to such
pettv consider:! t ions as that "
"Well, well, use them if you like. I
dare sav we shall ma nacre Bomnhow"
"And the croquet party? Only
thirty or forty people just to pay our
social debts. It's so shabby to be be

"If you1 11 be as economical as you
cat about it "
"And the parasol? And the summer
silk that is such a bargain at Peter
"Yes. yes, yesl Only remember,
Vio, that there is a limit to our funds."
Mrs. Hale was satisfied with the
grudging assent so reluctantly screwed
ant of her hnsband.
She gave the croquet party and had
the satisfaction of hearing on all sides
that it was the most elegantly gotten
up little affair of the season in Hollo
way road. She whirled down to the
parks and along the Bayswater road,
with the cream-colored ponies. She
bought the lavender summer silk, with
m "love" of lace shawl to wear with it;
paid Mme. Fringe Furbelow four
guineas to make it up. and had it
ruined by a glass of lemonade the first
time she ever wore it. She accepted
an invitation to visit Yarmouth with a
tartv of irav friends, and cried all
night before she coma induce her hus
band to consent.
"Vic, you don't understand,11 said
John, with a careworn look on his
brow. "We must study economy or
...we shall go to ruin."
"Economy." sharply retorted Vic
toria; "I am sick of the very word.11
Her husband tnrned silently away.
It was bard, just when be had most
need of sympathy, counsel and advice
thus to be repulsed.

the senior member of the firm of
Hardie, Blocke & Co., that Hale's wife

E. D. Ludwig. of Erie. Pa., who just
before the war. was a teacher in the
Sunday-school of which "Stonewall"
Jackson was Superintendent, relates
the following story to the Detroit

was Professor of Mathematics and
Artillery Practice in the Washington
College, of Lexington, and bis father-in-law.
Dr. George Juncktin. was
President of the college. President
Juncklin was an uncoin promising
Union man, and just before the war.
when the secession spirit ran very high,
a party of student one night raised a
flag over the dome of the college.
When Dr. Juncklin cftme down next
morning and saw the Hag he ordered
the janitor to take it down. The stu
dents told the janitor that if he lower
ed the flag they would kill him, and he
refused. Dr. Juncklin. although up
wards of 70 years old. mounted to the
dome, cut the halyards and brought
the flag down. Stepping into Vie bal

to the flag, and as it burned said, in a
clear voice that was heard by all be
low, So mav all attempts to destroy

once seized by a crowd of the infuri

quired all the energy of his son-in-law,
Stonewall Jackson, aud a number of
others to prevent his beiug hanged on
the spot. A compromise was ar
ranged by which he was to leave the
State. He hastily entered his family
carriage and. with what few effects he
could lay his hauds upon readily, set
out for Harper's Ferry escorted by his

The Vslne of Commas.
A Prussian school inspector appear
ed in the office of the burgomaster of a
little town, for the purpose of asking
him to accompany him on a tour of
inspection throug'h the schools. The
burgomaster, rather out of sorts, mut
tered. "Does this donkey come again?"
The inspector awaited his time for a
proper answer, according to the im
mortal advice, "Vt-ngeance is a dish
that must be eaten cool." When the
inspector was introduced to the teach
er, he said he was curious to see how
well punctuation was taught. The
burgomaster, the local supervisory
authority, said: "Never- miud that;
we care naught for commas and the
like." But the inspector ordered a
boy to go to the board and write:
"The burgomaster of R. says, the in
spector is a donkey." Then he order
ed him to change the comma by plac
ing it after R. and inserting it after in
spector. Thus: "The burgomaster of
R-, says the inspector, is a donkey."
It was a cruel lesson, but it is reason
able to suppose that commas rose in
the estimation of the "local supervisory
authority." London Journal of Edu

A few in lies from the Ohio river, In
southern Indiana, in the midst of Its
grand old forest of towering oaks, of
walnut and maple trees, were scat
tered bits of prairie bind that rose and
fell in waves of hill and hollow most
fair to see.
Upon one of these eminences stood
ft small, unsightly cabin of rough and
unhewn logs, with neither doors or
wiudows. In one corner of the room
folea were stuck Into the cracks of the
ogs, while the other euds wero sup
ported by forked sticks sunk into the
earthen floor. Over these boards were
laid, upon which dry leaves -were scat
tered, the whole surmounted with
skins of anlmnls, aud old clothes. This
was the only hedttead visible. Three
or four three-legged stools, u slab with
the Hat aide upward serving as a table,
and a Dutch oven and skillet com
pleted the furniture of the room.
This was the home of Thomas Lin
coln, an easy going, id Id man. whose
chief excellences lay in his skill as a
huntsman and his remarkable aptitude
About a year after the death of his
wife, who had left to him tw o children,
he sought another in the person of
Sally Bush, who had in earlier years
rejected his suit, but who was uow a
widow, living with her three chitdreu
Iu homely words, he urged imme
diate marriage and she yielded. It Is
fair to presume, however, that had she
known'the real truth about the Indiana
cabiu tile her consent would have been
hard to gain.
Packing up her household goods and
loadiug them on a naon drawn by
four horses, the newly wedded pair
arrived at Thomas Lincoln's home.
Imagine her disnpnoluiment when, ut
the close of a cold December day, they
drove up before the doot-leat, w'iudow
less cabin, ttifiontof which stood the
two children, Nancy, a girl of 11, aud
Abe, a boy 9 years old.
Ill-clad, with unwashed faces and
uncombed hair, these little creatures
gased with eyes aud mouth wide open
at the wonderful treasures unloaded
from that wagon.
There were chairs and a table, aud
knives and forks and cooking utensils,
and most marvelous of all a real
bureau, that in those days had cost
(40. This Inst Thomas Lincoln had
declared a sinful extravagance, und
had urged Sully to sell it, but she
wo.uld not heed aud so it was brought
to the backwoods cabin.
To these uu tutored children, who
had never heard of such things, and
who knew nothing of their uses, this
ehauge of surroundings came, like ft
perfect revelation and changed the
whole color of their lives.
Iu person. Sally Bosh was tull and
stately, haudsome in face ami figure,
with earuest eyes and beautiful curl
ing hair. Iu conversation she was
bright antt cheery, and to all her
charms added a rare force of charac
ter, expressing itself in ueatuess, eu
ergy, economy aud thrift.
Desolate as was her future prospect,
uupromising in its every feature, she
lost no time Iu lamentatiou. Looking
calmly into the face of chaos, out of it
she wrought comfort aud order.
Turning with pity to the two
neglected Lincoln child re u she cleaned
them thoroughly aud combed and
straightened their tangled locks. She
taught them how to wash themselves,
and gave them untiring lessous in the
virtues of cleanliuess. From her own
wardrobe she fashioued for them gar
ments, and clothed t lie in comfortably
from head to foot. Nice uai-m beds
and nourishing food were provided fur
them. She treated them as kindly as
she did her owu children, aud took
them into the heart of her large aud
gracious motherhood. Through her
insistence, her husband laid a w ooden
floor, and in due time doors and win
dows found their proper places. Lit

and Iwitcr provisions were made for
the entire family.
Instead of hlmv and hard usairc to
which the children had been always
subjected, she ruled them by love and
by winsome ways. As Abraham Lin

ingly destined to a life of rudeness and
obscurity, and from these depths she
rescued the pure and honest and force

Through the transformation she
brought about in the home and in the
entire life of the family she completely

THE INDIAN'S MUSTANG.
Hor Vrm Introduce! tn America by
.. the flpatilnrtla mt Sn VUciapail,
The Indian horses of the mountain
and plains tribes were originally of
that wild stock once found In yast
herds all over the Intnicontlnent region
and which had their beginning from
those that stayed from the Spniilurds hi
old Mexico, as them were no animals
of that character on the continent un
til the Spanish conquest, if wo except
an extinct species found only as a fossil
ou the plains of Kansas. These were
geological specimens long before the
advent of the Indian, and of such a re
mote age as to bewilder the miud Iu Its
Even until the middle of the eight
eenth century the Indians of the coun
try east of the Mississippi used to laugh
at the white man, who' could not walk
but must ride a horse. The Indian
thought nothing of keeping up a "dog
trot" till day, making his lifty and sixty
miles during that lime.
The wild horses of the American
continent once roamed from the border
of old Mexico as far north as Lake
Winnipeg, says a writer in the Kansas
City titttr. Twenty-three years ago
there were a treat many wandering
over the broatU grassy bottoms of the
Cimarron, iu southwestern Kansas;
perhaps they are not all extlnet yet.
All the wild horses that I have ever
seen were of a small stature pony
built In every instance but possessing
awondeiTul amount of endurance; a
toiiirh, hardy animal, well lilted to per

their horses wero constituted to "live

The farther we went the more ob
stacles we had to encounter; difficul
ties beset us so thickly ou every baud
as we advanced that they threatened to
thwart our expedition. The snow be
came deeKjr daily, nnd to advance was
but adding Hungers to difficulties.
About one-third of the men were al
ready mut or less frost-bitten, every
night some of the mules would freeze
to death, and every day as many more
would give out from exhaustion and be
left on the trait. It seemed like light
lug fate to attempt to proceed, but
we were bent on our course, and con
tinued to advance. At one time men
were sent ahead to report the pros
pect, aud returned staling that grass
appeared iu the distauee before them;
they supposed that the snow was abat
ing, but ou coming up what they saw
proved to be the tops of bushes six feet
high projecting above the snow; nor
did anything appear upon which the
animals could subsist. The corn we
had packed along fur them was al
ready cousumed. Sometimes we would
attempt to move ou. nnd the severity
of the weather would force us buck
into camp. In one of these attempts,

Old Bill Williams, was nearly froseu;
he dropped down upon his mule in ft
stupor aud was nearly senseless when
we got into camp. A number of men
came In with their noses, ears, faces,
fingers, and feet partly frozen, and
one or two of the mules dropped down
and froze to tlcati under their packs.
Poor mules, it was pitiubl" to see
them! They would roam about all
night, generally, en account of their
extreme weakness, following back the
path of the previous' day, pawing in
snow three or four feet deep for some
sign of vegetation to keep them alive.
They would fall down every lifty jards
under their packs, aud we would, have
to unpack them and lift them up. and
that with lingers frozen and lacerated
by the cold. Finally they began eat
ing the ropes anil rawhides lariats with
which they were lied, until there were
no more left iu camp to tie them with;
theu they ate the blankets which we
tied over thein at night; then they
came into camp and ate the pads and
rigging off the pack saddles, and ate
one another's manes nmh. tails entirely
bare, even into the flesh, and would
come to us while sleeping and begin to
eat the blankets off us; they would
even tumble into our tires, over the
cooking utensils. But. poor things,
little relief could we afford theiu, for,
although they suffered much, we were
in no better condition.

Buster has done it at last, says a
VVelUboro correspondent of the N. T,
fiwn. ,- Tbe hnuds of the law have
closed upon htm, nnd woe sits by the
1 1 earth of Uncle Murg Binder's, In the
Pine creek reglou.
Buster is a mule a tittle mouse
colored miilti that has been ia the
Binder family so ninny years that his
ago is forgotten. He was the autocrat
of the Binder premises. His chief
duty was to haul Un-ile Morgand Aunt
Peggy when they wanted to go visit
ing or to town to trade. That Is.
Buster hauled them If he hadn't made
up his mind to a different course. They
never knew whether or not the mule
was going to take them or not until
they got into the wagon. Then
Uncle Murg would take up the lines
"Now, then, Busterl What o ve
think nbout HP"
If Buster prick nd up his ears and
started ou that was ns much at to' say
that he thought It was all right nnd he
would take Uncle Murg and Aunt
Peggy wherever they wore going nnd
fetch them back home slick as a
greaser. - But ff Buster replied to
Uncle Morg's Inquiry by laying his
ears back on his shoulders and scowl
ing they knew that the mule thought it
wusn't all right and without another
word Uncle Morg and Aunt Peggy
would dismount, unhitch the mule and
turn him out and go contentedly Into
the house to wait until some day when
Buster was willing.
"Make him go agin his will!'.1 Uncle
Morg always exclaimed when asked
why he didn't force the mule to go.
'W'y, man. sum pin' VI happen surer
'n 'later rot If wo sh'd go ugiu Buster's
Idee o' the matter! Buster knows!"
It was the same way with persons.
Buster's opinion of an Individual de
cided Uncle Morg ami Aunt Peggy.
When he folded his liberal ears bttck
and threatened a rush upon any per
son under his scrutiny that person
could do no business with the Binder
family. "Muster knows!" was alwavs
the emphatic remark of his two loyal
subjects after the mute had given his
opinion, anil that Iu spite of several
queer judgments the arbitrary Buster
hat put. on record. There was the
case of the man who drove up to the
Binder place once when the railroad
was building. He started for the
house but Buster block d the way.
He not only laid back Inls ears and
threatened the man with his front, but
turned about aud let his heels fly so
viciously and so rapidly in the direc
tion of the man's head that the stranger
backed away and shouted to Uuete
Morg. who stood on the stoop, lo call
his mule off.
"I've got some business with you!"
shouted the man.
No y' han't!" replied Uucle Morg.
"Ye han't got no business with me. fur
Buster's agiu ye, 'n' Buster knows!"
The mail went off iu a huff, and,
come to liiid out, he was the ngeut of
the railroad, and wanted to contract
with Uncle Morg for a big lot of ties.
The consequence was that other part
les gut the contract, which proved lo
be one with big money in it.
"Don't care!" safd Uncle Morg.
"The chances is th't if I'd ha' took the
contract I'd ha1 put the money in ft
bank, n the bank 'd a busted! Buster
Then there was the new preacher
In the district the Rev. Absalom
Dubbs, the meekest, mildest, and most
harmless of men. When Brother
Dubbs went tn make bis tirst pastorial
call on Sister Binder, he was bounced
off of the premises by Buster so quick
that he never knew how he gut out in
the road. It saddened the hearts of
Uncle Murg anil Aunt Peggy to know
that Brother Dubljs had been weighed
In Buster's balance and fouud so
; lamentably wanting. But there wai
no getting around it. tJ rot tier isuuua
was under suspicion, and Uncle Morg
and Auut Peggy stayed home from
meeting all that year. Their faith In
Buster's wisdom was not shaken a bit
' by the fact that the dominie quit the
, district with a S)otless record.
I 'The world hasn't come to an end
i yit!" said Uncte Morg. "Preachers is
doin' some tur'ble queer things these
days w'en ye han't a pectin' of iL
, Muster knowtt!"
I But the oracular little mule is suffer
ing greatly iu prestige now. Uucle
M org's and Auut Peggy's heretofore
unwavering trust in Buster has been
rudely shaken, and their calm philos
ophy does not serve to sustain them
Iu their painful awakening. Two or
three months ago oue of the nicest
appearing young men who bad ever
been seen in that part of the Pine
creek county stopped his horse at the
Binder farm aud got out of the wagon.
Buster took to him on sight. He put
his nose on the stranger's sleeve and
walked him right up to Uncle Morg's
door. Buster even seemed to want to
follow the man Into the house, he had
taken such a fancy to him. That was
alt the recommendation Uncle Morg
and Aunt Peggv wanted fur the
stranger, and he didn't dilly-dally in
' in presenting the business he had in
; hand. In less than fifteen minutes be
; had Uncle Morg's signature to a con
tract to act as agent in that district for
the grab quick stump-puller and light
ning chuck-hole tiller. Last week the
coutract turned up in the shape of a
cut-throat judgment for $160, and
Uncle Morg was called upon to settle.
He kicked, and they levied on property
of bis, including tne oracular mute,
j "If I hef to pay the swindlin' uote I
i will," says Uncle Morg. "'Tain't the
' money I mind, but to think th't arter
we've let Buster hev the run o' the
place fer twenty year n' better he'd
turn to 'n' stear us agin a bunko game
' is w'at's break in' us all up!"
What to Io When Starring.
A survivor of the hardships of Fre-
mont's terrible four expeditions writes
as follows in a posthumous narrative
i of the expedition printed in the
Century, in which be more than hints
at the fact of cannibalism.
It was curious to hear different men
tell of the workings of the mind when
they are starving. Some were con
stantly dreaming or imagining that
they saw before them a bountiful feast,
antt would make selections of different
dishes. Others engaged their minds
with other thoughts. For my part, I
kept my mind amused by eutering
continually iuto all the minutiee of
farmiug, or of some other systematic
business which would keep up a train
of thought, or by working a mental
solution of mathematical problems,
bringing in review the rudiments of
some science, or by laying out plans
for the future, all having a connection
with home and after life. So in this
way never allowing myself to think
upon the hopelessness of our couditiou,
yet always keeping my eyes open to
every chance. I kept hope alive and
never once suffered myself to despond.
And to this course I greatly attribute
my support, for there were stronger
men who, by worrying themselves,
: doubtless hastened their death. Ten
! out of our party of thirty-three that
; entered the mouutains had perished,
and a few davs more would have
finished the others. -
Seventeen persons who died in En
gland in 1890 bequeathed to various

AN EXCITING HIDE.

MOUNTAINS AT NIGHT,

One olgtil I was crossing the Sierra
Nevada iu a stage; says n writer in the
Detroit Free 'rea I was the only
fiassenger aboard, and hence had a
unely and dreary night of it, Tlie
long, stow pull of the ascent has con
sumed atl of the fore part of the night
nnd much of the early mom.
It was about 2 o'clock when the sum
mit was reached, nil uumvares to eith
er myself or the driver iu front for
In the tediousness of the long climb
and the silence and solitariness of the
tiirrnunding we had fallen fast asleep.
Kuddeuly there was a sharp rolling
of the heels, ft violent jostling of the
seats, and we both awoke to the terri
ble consciousness that we were going
down the motintalu at a most frightful
gait a runaway team lu front.
When the down grade had been
struck the driver usually a careful
nnd vigilant man was so fast asleep
that brakes were not applied as prompt
ly as was necessary, and the horses,
liudiug that they were not under con
trol, with the heavy stage rushing up
on them, became ut once frightened
and lied down the sleep descent.
When the driver tirst awoke and re
alized the situation he was in midair,
having been violently thrown from his
seat. He had had the lines wrapped
around tils hauds and wrists.aud, hold
ing fast unconsciously, he was jerked
forward in the furious leaps of the
Yet It was but a moment or two un
til he struck the ragged ledge below
the roadway, anil I discovered my sit
uation, as I heard him utter a horiible
shrink and then ft low moan as one in
the death agony.
By this time the tower wheels of the
stage were off the roadway; the stage
itself was on the edge of the fearful
precipice, and the axle of the vehicle
Iteiug dragged along over the stone
wall that supported the lower side of
the toad bed.
The scream of borrow piercing my
ears emphasized the frightful situation,
for the driver was not only dashed to
his de-.ih, as I sunosed iu the dark
ness below, but there was the awful
possibility that In the next moment
the stage and horses would go over
the brink aud land In the dismal uu- !
known abyss of canyon beneath. The '
driver was pulling with all his weight
In the direction of that abyss.
The half-upset stage and the vigor- ;
ous jerks of the frightened team in
front brought additional horror to me;
nevertheless I determined to make au
effort to save iny life, if possible In &
leap upward. So I sprang out of the
stage in ft desperate jump from the
higiter side. I reached the ground iu
safety, but not a moment too soon.
The stars were bright overhead, and
through an opening Iu the forest trees
around on either baud I saw the "lead
ers" of the team makiog a desperate
effort to avoid being pulled over the
precipice, the lines mill in the grasp of
the driver below, the man clinging to
the ribbons with the clutch of death,
and the rough stone edges of the lower
wall of the roadway having broken
the speed, since the axle had to be
dragged forcibly over the nneveu sur
face. With a swift decision of mind I saw
what must be doue lo stay the tragedy,
sol jumped to the front, seised the
leader by the bridle-rein, and at once
pulled his face square to the upper
bank. I thus stopjwd the horse and
kept the stage still on the road.
But where was the driver? This
was the harrowing thought now oo
my mind, for the man's cries were
bushed. I cried aloud for him. but no
answering voice came In reply; no
sound was heard save the echo from
the upmsite side of the canyon beyond
aud the frightful panting of the trem
bling horses now well in my hands.
Again and again I cried louder and
wilder nnd deeper in my distress. But
I heard nothing in response save
the mocking echoes and the heaving
sound of the restless horses. It was
the mo4t terrible moment of my life
terrible beyond expression.
Alone in the dismal Sierras them
selves the picture and inspiration of
gloom! aloue in the deaduess of the .
night, with a frightened team I knew
not bow to manage, a broken stage
out of its pnthtvny. aud a supposed
dead companion to lind nnd guard till
help or the mnrn or the grizzly lenr
should come. No pen can ever portray
the sensations of a soul in such a crisis.
Again 1 cried with a wail of misery
and despair. I knew not how lnv.
how loud, uor to whom the wailing
note went, but my cry was answered
by a low moan, the moan of a man
seemingly in the agonies of death.
My driver was not dead and so thank
fulness sprang iuto my soul.
It was some consolation even to hear
the sound of the ninu's agony, for with
it came the hope that the poor fellow,
after all, would survive.
- Hope grew stronger, for the next
moment came another nud still an
other groan, this time from a man
evidently with vital energy and a ral
lying struggle. Soon the driver crawl
ed, half dead, up tlie bank- but the
only thiug he seemed to be thankful
for," and tlie only fact he appeared to
appreciate was his courage in holding
on to the lines while he was beiug
dashed and dragged on the rocks be
low. In the darkness the lirst thing he
wanted seen was the manner in which
he had performed the fearful feat of
holding the reins! I, still trembling,
held the frightened horses against the
upper bank, doing all I could to quiet
the fears of the panting beasts.
By the aid of matches we soon had
a good light and the situation was ful
ly revealed. The poor driver was
frightfully mangled und torn ns he
struck the sharp edge of the rocks be
I tied up the man as best I could,
we mended the broken stage and got
it back into the road, anil then came
the slow and cautious and painful de
sceut to the next station ut the foot of
But poor Henry was never again
able to go upon the road behind his
team in the long months during which
I remniued in correspondence with
friends over his fate.
An Indian Challenge.
Two tribes of Indians in the npper
part of California had as boundary be
tween their districts, a low ridge
where the streams headed. If you
should go to where one of these
streams. Potter River, rises, you would
see stilt standing a tall pile of stones
beside a never-failing spring; ou one
side of this cairn was the territory of
the Porno Indians, and on the other
the land of theChumaia. These tribes
were enemies, and were often at war.
When the Chumaia wished to chal
lenge the others to battle, they took
three little sticks, cut notches round
their ends and in the middle, tied them
at the ends iuto a faggot, and laid it
on this cairn. If the Pomos accepted
the challenge, they tied a string around
the middle of the three sticks and left
them in their place. Then agents of
both tribes met on neutral ground antt
arranged the time and place of battle.
which took place accordingly. Ernest

A tdttlo Girl's Diary n the Kast.
We went fo Pompeii day-beforo ye
terday. It took ns two hours to get
'-here and three hours to look H all
over. It was very Interesting. Of
course I do not rotnembor everything.
First, we went Into the museum.
There were fin the first - room) some
old locks nnd keys, a big iron box and
some bread. Iu the second room were
7 or 6 skeletons; a dog, a little boy,
tome women nnd some men. The dog
was all twisted up as If In great agony.
The color of theiu was a dirty whitish
brown. On the sides of the room were
some big water jugs. Then we went In
through the gate to Pompeii. The
houses had no roofs and no windows,
the light coming In from tlie door. I
suppose once they had roofs but now
they have all fallen to pieces. First
we went to the big room where the
king sat and scute need the people.
Parts of the pillars were yet standing
and between each oue was a little
basin cut out of stones. Up at the end
of the room was the sent of the King.
Near the sent were some stairs which
led into a prison. We descended these
stairs. It was a little room with two
holes at the top through which the
King told tlie poor creatures down
there what he was going to do with
them. This room (not the prison, but
the room tvhere the King sat) was very
long and had about twenty pillars in
it. They were all made of marble; not
very clean and bright now but then
when It was new it must have been
beautiful. We saw some little wine
shops and oil shops. The sign of the
oil shops was cut iu the stone outside.
The sign was two men carrying a big
jar of oil between them on u stick
which they carried ou the shoulder.
The wineshops did not have any sign I
think. These wine, nnd oil-shops were
just alike. At one end of the room was
a long marble table with live round
holes at the top. I went to see what
the holes were and saw a great bis jug
suuk iu the eat th reaching up to the
holes. Iu the jugs thev put the oil and
wine which they so id. The streets
were quite narrow; but I think the
Bazars were still narrower which we
aw iu Cairo. There were some beau
tiful mosaic fountains with little bits of
steps lending up to them for the water
to fall down on. Afler looking at some
.tuiiis wh entered the Forum which
hud six streets leading into it. They
coii d block the streets up so riders
and carriages could uot go through if
they wanted to. We ate our lunch in
I he garden of Dioinedes and In his cel
lar were found the bones of eighteen
women and children with bread and
other things to eat. Lucy Morris Ell

Doesn't Need Hair Ileatorer.
The longest suit of hair in the world
is perhaps that which grows on the
head of Miss A sen at b Phi I pott, of
Gainesville, Tex., hers trailing ou the
ground when she stands nearly four
feet, and measuring in all teu feet and
seven luetic. Miss Phi I pott is a slight,
delicate woman, approaching middle
age, and regards her maguiticent
tresses as rather a nuisance, complain
ing that their weight actually drains
her strength. The present growth is
of the past seven years, as in 1884 her
head was shaved during a spell of
brain fever. It is necessary to her
health to cut out large -quantities of
hair every few months, and this she
has a regular sale for from some large
wig manufactory in the east, which
pays her well for It. ns its fineness and
silky gloss is exceptional, besides be
ing of a Hindi admired red gold tiut.
Miss Phil post says she has been sev
eral times approached by enterprising
proprietors of dime museums, who
have made her oQVr to travel with
them as a freak, and has also been re
quested tn act as agent for sundry hair
tonics. She claims that her family
have for generations been noted for
the beaut)' and length of their hirsute
ornaments, her grandfather having a
beard that fell to his feet, nnd being
obliged lo cut his hair every day or
two. Her mm tier's hair was such
that when she lay in her coffin it en
wrapped her from head to foot and
was then obliged to be folded back
That Third Party.
The constant presence ol a third
person at the fireside and table, says
Mrs. P. T. Barn urn in The Ladies'
Home Journal, is especially disastrous
in the earlier years of wedlock. The
presence of one who is not "of our
selves" may often restrain what is
worst in us; but alas! it always re
strains what is best. There must al
ways be in the most perfect unions and
the best ordered lives some little fric
tion which will once in a while find ex
pression. The gentle protest with
which, if alone with your husband, you
would disarm bis tract iousness, flies in
your throat because of the third per
son. The loving caress with which
you would close his Hps and make
him ashamed of himself, is as impossi
ble to you as if you were paralysed.
If misunderstood, pride will not let you
explain, aud you retort indignantly;
or, at best, keep silent with an acltiug
heart, and in time you grow to hate
that third person who may be an angel
of light, but who is none the less eat
ing holes io your marriage garment. It
may not be possible, without neglect
ing a sacred duty, to have your house
eutirely to yourself, but I charge yon,
as you value your mutual love - and
happiness, be inflexible in your resolu
tion to keep some waking hours out
of every twenty-four wheu the fireside
shall be sacred to you anil your hus
band; when 3'ou can tell each other
your thoughts, your hopes and fears,

Boating Uy Dram Ilea.
We passed heavily laden junks slow
ly working their way upstream amidst
what to aoy but the Chinese would
have appeared insurmountable diffi
culties. A hundred naked, shouting,
and arm-swinging trackers dragged
each one slowly along, now straining
every muscle at the long tow-line,
now slacking up as a man seated at
the bow of the boat directed them with
the beat of a small drum held between
his knees. Below the rapids other
junks wero preparing to enter them
witii much burning of joss-paper and
tiring of crackers, and near by was a
little life-boat station, with two or
three "red boats" ready to pick np
any one in case of accident. Below all
of the rapids on the Yang-tssu are life
boat stations, which, -like many other
charities in China, are kept up solely
by private subscription and render the
greatest service to tlie enormous pop li
bit ion employed ou the river. Lieut,

A dispatch from Daggett, southern
California, says: Montgomery's big
find In Pahmmp valley Is a big find
now without a doubt. Work Is being
pushed as rapidly as the appliances at
hand will permit, and ore is being
taken out every day that warrants
all that the discoverer ever claimed

made every day or so. One prospector
lately brought In some first-rate-looking
placer gold, and reports as high
as 60 cents to the pan. Two new
ledges of coarse gold have been found
since Montgomery left, and numerous
ledges of silver ore have been located. '
Montgomery will soon have a small
mill at work and Is sure of big results.
