Slrucctinc With Duty.
It is always a couflist, this wres
tling with duty. A young dress
maker, a member of the Salvation
Army, received a letter from a would
bo customer asking among other
things whether tho material she was
planning to bring plush would bo
suitable nnd look well to uso in tho
big sleeves in vogue.
Now, tho famoof the customer as a
parlor elocutionist had preceded bcr,
but was misunderstood by tho dress
maker as associating its object with
tho stage, which her duty taught her
So she sat down and conscientious
ly replied to the letter that sho could
not sew on a garment which was to bo
worn by a person so contaminated
and urged her to forsake her ungodly
work and turn hor talents to some
bettor advantage. Tho letter ran on
thus for three pages and as sternly
But duty having been placated tho
natural kindliness of human nature
popped up in a littlo postscript.
"I think the plush quite too heavy
for the uso you suggest. It would be
better to make tho sleeves of silk."

Gems Found In the United States.
The United States has entered tho
field as a gem producer. Turquoise
mines aro in successful operation in
New Mexico, and the stones taken
out uro in many respects, including
color, equal to tho best Persian. Ru
bies and sapphires are being mined
in considerable quantity, in several
places in Montana, and tho stones
are very beautiful, although no truo
red ruby or true blue sapphire has as
yet been found there. Fine fire opals
have been discovered near Colfax in
the state of Washington. Mine build
ings have been erected and a settle
ment called Gem City founded, wlrioh,
it is hoped, will prove tho center of a
paying industry. A surprising fact
to the general public will be the pearl
fishing of Wisconsin, which for the
past few years has been extensively
earned on along tho Pecotonica and
Applo rivers and their tributary
creeks. Pearls weighing over 50
grains each and varying in value
from $500 to more than $1,000 have
been taken. Mineral Industry.
What Mr. Froe Had to Tell.
Ono day as a anako was crossing
our lawn it was seen and pursued by
some member of the family. It
seemed to bo rather portly and inca
pable of flight, and finally, in order
to bo free to move, it opened its jaws
and emitted a frog, after which it
wriggled rapidly away.
Tho frog lay pulled out at full
length, a ghastly spectacle. A great
deal of sympathy was expended over
its inanimate form, and just as it was
about to be removed from tho spot,
behold 1 it drew in first ono leg and
then tho other, contracted itself into
a respectable frog and hopped off a"
if nothing had been amiss.
"My dear," it probably said to Mrs.
Frog on reaching tho pond, "I shall
never smile again. Such a remarka
blo experience as mine sobers ono for
life. I went out this morning com
paratively young and cheerful. I re
turn an older and a sadder frog."

More Expressive Than Words.
A volunteer who was a great man
in his own eyes was by somo influence
appointed captain. He could hardly
speak of anything but his now dig
nity. Meeting a friend ono day bo
accosted him thus:
"Well, Jim, Isupposo you know I
have been appointed captain 1"
"Yes," said Jim, "I hoard bo."
"Well, -what do folks say. about
it?" asked tho captain.
"They don't say nothin," replied
truthful James; "they just laugh."

threaten us. The convention not only
repudiates tho Idea of a gold standard
and gold basis but unanimously com
mitted Itself to the principles that we,
as Popullits, havo long held and cher
ished, namely, 'that law alone makes
money acd that the stamp of the gov
ernment converts sixty cents worth of
silver into a dollar, equal to auy gold
dollar,' and they unanimously accepted
the doctrine, that the money of the
country should be adequate for tho de
mands of business and should expand
with the growth of population and
Tho address holds out the Idea that
the silver convention was a great vic
tory for the Populist principles embod
