In the north tide of Stone mountain,
six miles from the month of Stony creek,
In Scott county, has been discovered a
natural icehouse on a grand scale. One
of the old settlers first discovered it
about I860, but owing to the fact that
the land on which it is situaied could
not be bought he refused to tell its
whereabouts and would only take ice
from it in case of sickness.
He died without revealing the secret
to even bis own family, and but for
party of "sang" diggers entering the re
gion it might have remained a secret
for generations, as it is situated in an
unfrequented part of the mountain.
The ice was only protected from the
rays of the sun by a thick growth of
moss resembling a texture and like moss
that can be seen dangling from the oaks
of Louisiana and Texas. Its formation
was after the fashion of a coal vein, be
ing few .inches thick in some places
while several feet in others. The forma
tion indicates that it had been spread
over the surface in a liquid state and
then congealed. By what process it
freezes or was frozen is a matter of con
jecture at this stage of investigation.
Some think that itwaB formed in the
winter and had been protected since by
a dense growth of moss which covers
it, while the more plausible theory is
that beneath the bed is situated a great
natural laboratory whose function is a
formation of ether, and tho process ot
freezing goes steadily on through the
heat as well as the cold. The growth of
moss resembled the hanging moss around
Hudson bay and indicates a frigid tem
perature. The bed covers one acre, and
if it proves inexhaustible it will be val
uable. Dispatch to Richmond State.

The Universal SuSrace la Austria.
The success of the Belgians in wrest

the ruling classes seems to have inspired
the Austrian workingmen to labor for a
similar result in a similar way. The suf
frage in Austria is now given to all who
pay a minimum of five florins in direct
taxes. To make it universal is now the
avowed object of the leader of the work
ingman's party, who three weeks after
the Hay day demonstrations in the

country and particularly to the labor
ing1 classes on the subject. The design
is to foment an agitation which will
assume huge proportions by the time

What was it? Well, the other day

There is no single exercise which com'

riding, it is peculiarly valuable to
children, for it is the most certain and
gentle developer of the back and atom

entire system that cannot possibly be
attained in any other way. Even foot
ball, the hardiest of all games, falls
short of having the same invigorating
effect on the boy. If this be true for

admitted to be how much more neces

the exerciso which acts upon arms and

that which acts on tho body, the chest,
stomach and back. When, then, an ex
ercise is found that nets on all, its value
is apparent without further argument

.Electricity and Steam on Kailroads.
There has been a vigorous contest in
the legislature of Connecticut over the
provisions of tho proposed general
statute for the regulation of electric rail
way enterprises. As finally passed, the
bill permits the paralleling of existing
steam railroads, provided the courts can
be convinced that tho public interests
require it in any particular case, which
is perhaps tho -wisest disposition of the
matter that could have been made.
Freight may be transported under sim
Our own view of tho matter is that the
steam railroad companies will ultimately
find it for their interest to control all tho
profitable and well located electric lines
and will operate them on a coupon ticket
system as feeders and distributors of
their local passenger trafHc. That this
might be done in many cases, with the
greatest possible advantage to all con
cerned, is obvious upon the most casual

Bargains In Ker Testaments.
It has been often stated that the re
vised version of the Scriptures has been
a failure so far as sale is concerned. But
this, observes the Westminster Gazette,
is not quite accurate. For the Revised
New Testament, the sale of which on its
first appearance was phenomenal, there
is now practically no demand, and the
Oxford University Press is offering pri
vately for charitable distribution its sur
plus stock at very low rate3. For in
stance, if 500 copies are taken, tho six
penny edition can be had for a penny,
the shilling edition for twopence and
the 18 penny edition for threepence each
copy. But this only applies to the New
Testament The sale of the revised ver
sion of the Bible, containing the Old and
New Testament, is now large and has
always been so.
Deaths From Diphtheria.
Nearly one-third of tho 702 deaths in
this city last week we're the result of
three diseases pulmonary consumption,
diarrhea and diphtheria. The mortal
ity from diphtheria in proportion to the
number of cases of it was very high, or
45 deaths to 119 cases. Until 40 years
ago this jpalady was almost unknown
in the United States, but it has latterly
become widely prevalent and is terribly
dangerous, as may bo seen by the rec
ords of mortality. No effective method
of treating it has yet been discovered,
though men of sciencb have striven and
are striving to discover such a method.
It is a contagious disease; it is epidemic.

He was no worm either, for he
wouM have turned when trod upon, but
sho recked not this. It was enough for
her that she did not care for him. This
is usually enough for any woman; also
for any man when the boot is on the
other foot, for of such is the kingdom
of Cupid. t
His condition had at last become un
bearable to him, and he resolved to win
all or lose all. It was late one evening
when the fateful moment came.
"Will you marry me?" he asked her
in pain, un trimmed English, for he could
trust himself to- nothing in the orna
She spurned him scornfully.
"No!" sho replied, with sarcastic, hate
ful, cruel emphasis, "No!
The -word pierced the heart in his bos
om. His lips quivered, and at first he
could not speak.
"Have you no more to saj?" he asked
at last plaintively.
"No, sir," she replied, "What more,
could I say?''
Again he shrank at the cruel thrust.
"I didn't know," he murmured tremu
lously, "but I think you might have said

Then he fled away so weary with dis

would set liis life on any chance to mend

Maine's "Nap Party."
xne very latest in juame is a "nap
party." They had one in Bockland tho
other day. The Tribune explains that
for two preceding evenings the guests
had enjoyed around of social gayeties
prolonged to late hours, which rendered
sleep desirable. Quaint invitations
named the "nap" hour as 7 o'clock, and
each guest on arrival was supplied with
a comfortable chair and pillow, "all wa3
quiet and hush," and tho gentle and re
fined snoring which arose from the dim
ly lighted rooms told how gratefully the
opportunity was appreciated. A merry
musical programme followed the period
of somnolence, refreshments were served,
and the company went home at mid
night, presumably ready for another nap
party the next day.
Roses Amid Ituins.
In driving over tho Maino highways
you must have noticed that whenever
you pass the ruins of an abandoned
house or au old cellar -where a house
once stood there is often a big patch of.
cinnamon roses growing wild around the
place. One does not see them often near
homes that are occupied, and their fre
quency around the abandoned places in
dicates that they either wqro greatly in
fashion in former years or else they love
decay and neglect and spring into beiug
in snch places spontaneously. These rose
patches aro just now bright with flowers
and odorous with well, tho writer asked
a lady tho other day what they were
odorous with, and she said "memories."

How He Saved Them.
When Captain Dutton of the Servia
gave orders to go aueau at lull speed
after the collision with the McC'allum,
he probably thought of the experience of
the Trave about a year ago, when her
bows cut sheer through a vessel which
she struck on tho ocean, and suffered
scarcely any damage. But he builded
batter than ho knew. By his action he
succeeded in saving every soul but one
on board tho ship which ho ran down.
Tho story of the suspension of tho Mc-
Cullum on tho prow of tho Servia long

reads like a page from a romance. New
A Custom That Is Very Old Indeed.
A bride made tho confession to a group
of young women who gathered around

bits of loro that are propheti' "fa speedy

wore a silver coin a Columbian half

with the usual amount of rice when it
came time to get into the carriage and
drive away for the honeymoon trip, and
md old shoes and good wishes enough
sent after her to make the after years
joyous ones it tney all hold good, and.
moreover, when she opens her trunk and

Every one has noticed the growing
height of each successive year's bevy of
debutantes, and the younger generations
promise to be quite as tall if not taller
than their predecessors. "Is it possible

a little girl who was more than an inch
taller than herself. "How big yon are!"
"Oh, do you think so?" answered the
child. "Why, my friends consider me
quite short. They are nearly all of thein
taller than I am." "Good gracious!" ex
claimed the little woman in dismay.

regret that there is no Catholic institu

Every summer the question about how
to deal with mosquitoes or mosquito
bites is presented by- many correspond
ents. Perhaps tho following counsel on
the subject from a Massachusetts paper
may be useful:
The best antidote for the bite of a
mosquito undoubtedly is ammonia weak
ened with a little water or salt and wa
ter. Some people go so far as to pres3
the poison out of the bito with soma
email metal instrument like the point of
a watch key before applying the anti
dote. This prevents the painful swell
ing that sometimes occurs. As in other
cases, "one man's meat is another man's
poison," and the same remedy will not
apply to all individuals. Some find cam
Pecuniary Prospects of the Chicago Fair.
If the Columbian company will dis
charge its bonded indebtedness and re
fund to the government the amount of
its donation, it will do marvelously
well. Every effort of the directory ought
to be exerted in that direction. Operat
ing expenses are far in excess of reason.
Struggle has been made and successfully
to a certain extent in the direction of re
duced expenditure on current account,
but tho field is still full of possibilities.
The banker's estimate of a 33 per cent
return to Chicago and tho shareholders,
Chicago being on a footing with all
shareholders, is optimistic. Tho esti
mate takes no account of the fact that
it is the purpose of the Columbian Ex
position company to continue expendi
ture after tho closing of the fair. The
Columbian guard have been assured
that large numbers of them will remain
for a year or more. The whole depart
ment of construction, reduced in num
ber, but still an expensive outfit, will be
continued. As the exposition is now
managed, there will not be a penny ot
return for any shareholder. It is idle to
make other prediction. Chicago Times.

De Maupassant was very thoroughly
discussed at the timo he was taken in
sane, and now that he is dead at the age
of 43 there is nothing to add save that
the operation of a creat natural law is
completed. He was a master of con
densation in literary style. His short,
terse sentences aro matchless, bnt most
of his stories are earthly and doubly per
nicious by reason of the masterly skill
with which they are told. No man could
portray snch frightful dramas of pas
sion without entering into the emotions
expressed. His own soul caught every
reflection, and tho strain was too much
for him. "A prematurely wornout nerv
ous system" was the cause-of his death.
His career was only for 12 years, but
ho leaves behind a mass o brilliant filth
that will do harm for many decades.
