Calamity wane's -s-avemtrres.
"Bushels of chills and fever literature
have been written about 'Calamity Jane,' " '
said Cassius Reynolds, n Wyoming ranch j
owner, in tho Palmer house, "but a true
story of her has never been given to tho J
world. These stories reflected upon her
character, when, as a matter of fact, she
was a good and brave woman. I saw hor
at Rock Spriags, Wy., where she is now
living. Her name is Jane Steers. She
was tho best known person in the west in
the 70's. She carried military messages
for Custer in tho Big Horn country, where j
tno savages were so tnicE mat a wmta
man dared not enter the basin. Sho dressed
like a man, always wearing a buckskin
suit. Sho could ride any horse that ever
backed and never hoard of the word 'fear.'
After Gen. Custer waa killed she went to
tho Diack Hills and was tho first white
woman to enter Deadwood. When 'Wild
Bill' wns djvng sho tenderly nursed him.
When the Indians and outlaws were driv
en away from the Black Hills she drifted
from place to place and finally located at
Rock Springs." Chicago Tribune.
Tho Best Dressed Girl.
At a winter resort the fair girl who by
unanimous consent was accounted the best
dressed on tho occasion of a certain morn
ing german wore a simple white linen
lawn or muslin having a small purplish
gray figure scattered over the material.
It probably cost leas than twenty cents a
yard. It was mado without trim mines of
any kind, the skirt in extreme simplicity,
the bodice open at the throat in a long,
narrow V, tho sleeves full and unlined.
The waist was encircled by a wide nbbon
stah of the same shade of purple gray and
tho satin shoes were of the same tone. 2so
other girl on the floor was as timply at
tired; no other excited so much comment
nor looked so sweet and womanly. She
might have been tho poorest of all, so little
did her toilet cost, but as it happens the
contrary was the case, for besides being
"the belle of the ball" she waa a great
heiress. Chicago Herald.
Frnit at Meals.
As a rule, a fruit dessert in the evening
and after a mixed meal ougnt only to be
lightly indulged in, for the average stomach
will but rarely tolerate a heavy indux of
snch cold and usually watery aliment as
fruit. This is net the case if the fruit is
eaten before or betwosH the meal course:.
A ripe melon eaten with salt or butter, be
fore or immediately after the soup, can be
freely indulged in. Experience teaches us
that stewed or raw fruit may be largely
taken between the courses. In many parts
of the continent this custom prevails; the
Germans eat stewed fruit withmauy meats,
nd in warmer climes such fruits as grapes,
plums, fis, melons and sweet l&aoas are
habitually e-iten with all kinds of dishes,
or as Dolato refreshers between tlw cours-a.

of American Tramps.
WILSON BECKER'S WANDEEINGS.
Ho Has Traveled all Over tae "World,
and Recently "Went from Boston to San
Pran clsco and Back In Twenty-one
Days A Great Army of Boms.
"Wilson Becker, alias "Sailor Kid," the
regularly elected king of the tramps, has
just completed a trip which gives him a
perpetual claim on the throne of American
In May the young man, whose proud
boast it is that he "never done a lick o'

the subject of a wager at Boston. His
backer bet a large sum that the "Sailor
Ed" would travel from tho Hub to San
Francisco and return in tho space of
twenty-one days without spending a cent
for railway faro or food. The feat was ac
complished, and the sport who risked hi3
monoy on the tramp presented him tho
other evening with $900 of the winnings.
Becker now offers Co venture this sum
tho moat money he ever had in his life on
the proposition that he can beat his way
around the world under the same condi
tions aa those of his transcontinental trip
in 103 days. Meanwhile he basks in the
homage of his ragged subjects, who declare
that "der king can't be downed by any
man wot works der roadl"
It may bo interesting to note how th!s
lad. not yet 23 years old, has solved the
problem of living without labor and gained
tho names by which ho is known. He was
born in Domerara," British Guiana, and
was christenedWilson Beaker. At the age
of 9 ho ran away. Working on the sym

Demerara, and after an absence of eighteen
months he reached home. But tho fever of
traveling was in his veins, and he next es
sayed land journeys throughout the United
States, with a success that has had no in
terruption up to the present time.
In 1687 young Becker, who because of hla
nautical experience was known to the fra
ternity as ''Sailor Kid," attended a big
convention of tramps at tho Nanticoke
(Pa.) coal breaker. It was decided by this
convention to choose a king. The conven
tion developed two candidates of about
equal strength Patsy Boliw.r and the
"Sailor Kid." Each was popular and had a
largo following. After several unsatisfac
tory ballots, numerous fights and tho con
sumption of oceans of beer the contending j
factions made a compromise. It was
agreed that the crown should grace the j
brow of the candidate who made the
quickest trip from New Tork city to San
Francisco and back via Xew Orleans, i
Becker won with hands down. i
"While en route he chanced to learn that J
Indians were allowed to ride free on trains j
crossing the western prairies, and while J
Patsy Bolivar "plugged along" slowly in I
freight cars tho "Sailor Kid," with feathers I
in his hair, paint on his face and a blanket
over his shoulders, sped westward in the ,

One custom is common to the million

may be induced to do a little work.
It is estimated by King Wilson I, that he
has 80,000 subjects throughout the United
States. He doesn't comprise in this num
ber the honest poor who are looking for
employment, or the capitalistic gypsies who
own horses and wagons and journey from
place to place tinkering broken pot3 and
pans, making sharp trades and devastating
hen roost3 and melon patches. His lieges
are those only who "don't have to work"
and who would -flee a wood pile or a job

ever present nuisance of thi3 great army
of leeches has become so intolerable that
many states carry on their statute books

able to the theoretic philanthropist, but
which with all their severity seem to avail
little in checking the growing evil of vol
A pictorial suggestion along this line is
offered herewith. The idea intended to be
conveyed to the agriculturist is that he
shall not turn the hungry wanderer away
unfed, but that under mild coercion ho
shall force him to work for his supper and

That they solve the problem differently
In China is shown by the following news
item, sent out some time ago under a San
TBA3IP TEEATHEST CHETA.
Francisco date: "Tho 6teamer Belgic,
which arrived today from China and Ja
pan, brought news of a tragedy at Hisia
Shib, China, tweity miles northeast of
Hongebow. Over 300 tramps appeared in
tho village, and the inhabitants, greatly
irritated by their presence, inveigled them
into the temple and set fire to the edifice.
Only forty escaped from the blazing build
ing, tho remainder being burned to death."
With such a warning as this to keep
away it is probable that for many years to
come the Mongolian vagrant will give the
village of Hisia Shib a wide berth. It will
also be well for Mr. Wilson Becker, while
circling the globo, to bear the name of tho
town in mind as one not to be visited s ve

Created h Sensation in Boston.
A rather pretty woman, mounted on a
powerful bay horse, created a sensation in
the Back Bny district of Boston the other
morning. It was not her faultless equip
ment or well fitting habit that drew tho
attention of the Beacon street residents.
She rode astride, clothespin fashion, just '
like a man. Her seat was good, and sho
managed the big bay with the skill of an
accomplished horsewoman. Those who
saw her Ray that the lady appeared to far
better advantage than those of her sisters
who precariously cling to the side saddle
and assume a pleasure they do not feel. It
is the first time tbe ildler stylo of horse
manship has been seen in Boston.

In a letter to Tho American Naturalist
E. F. Payne, of Toronto, records an inter
cstingfacL which often auna undor his
notico during a prolonged etny at Hudson's
strait. "Horo," ho says, ''tho Esquimaux
might often be soen lying at full hraffth at
the edgo of an ico floo, and, although no
peals could bo wen, they ponrietcntly
whistled in a low note similar to that often
used in calling tamo iii-oua, or, if words
can express my meaning, like a plalntlvo
phe-ew, few-few, tho first note being pro
longed at least threo sccondx If there
wero any seals within bearing distance
they wore invariably attracted to the spot,
and it was amusing to see them lifting
themselves as high as posaible out of the
water and fclowly sinking their heads, as
though highly delighted with the inuaic
"Here they would remain for Home time,
until one, perhaps more venturesome than
the rest, would come within striking dis
tance of the Esquimaux, who, starting to
his feet with gun or harpoon, would often
change the seal's tune of joy to one of bor
row, the others making off 04 rapidly as
possible. Tee whistling had to be contia
uous, and was more effective if performed
by another Eaquinianx a short distance
back from the one lying motionbau at to
edge of the iee. I may add that the experi
ment was often tried by myself with tho
Moie result. "
