companied by wives, sisters, daugh
ters coii'dni and aunts of tho mom
bora who not unfrequently form a ma
jority of tho lmrty; and thoy climb tho
ledge-, ns quickly and go at thom with
hainnioi'd ns vigorously as tho mon.
Tlio pursuit of minerals, if it is fair
to talk of pursuing things thnthnvo
not i m roinotost notion of running
nwuy bus overy b.t tho fascination of
botanical rce irch. and tho Burprlsos
nro oven llvehor. It is. of course, de
lightful to run to earth and then to
pull out of it the llowcror weed or forn
that you hnvo bcon wanting for tho
last month to got hold off; but think
of tho pleasuio there Is in tapping u
surfnco of dirty rock, or seeing It
crack and spllntor thoro Is a dusty
fall, a hasty gathering up of skirts and
n btopplng asldo to avoid tho descend
ing mass, and thero in the nowly ox
posod face of tone. Is a "pockot" of
glittoring crystals, shining in tho sun
llko diamonds or stalnod by metallic
oxides with beautiful reds, browns and
yellows. Noxt to finding monoy or
continents thero is no pleasuro of dis
covery that is keoncr.
Tho common objection raised by
most of tbo3o who would llko to on
gngo in this employ mont is that thoy
know nothing nbout minerals." But
that is tho way to learn to take a
basket and hammer and break miner
als and look at thom An hour of
that praotlco is better than n week
with text books. Tho outfit Is slight
onough n basket or satchel, several
squares of paper or small gioccry bags
for wrapping tho specimens, a noto
book and n pencil for jotting down
names r.ml localltlos and a small ham
mer. Thero is n hammer commonly known
ns tho Vassar, bocauso it is alleged
that It was eloigned for uso by the
students of Vassar college, that Is just
tho thing. It is light but strong, with
n brcaklug surface at one end and a
chipping edge at tho other. Tho
wholo equipment need not weigh over
two or threo pound and if u purty is

"We havo on tho plains of Texas

whoro horses and inulos metaphoric

to a N. Y. Sun reporter. "As a mat

Aftor a horso or a mulo has taken nls

tho most successful merchants shows a
development of this trait early in his
Coining to Now York from the coun

llttlo monoy, ho found hla way to
"lower Wall street," and walking into
tho storo of W. & Co.. passed back
Into tho counting room and waited
modestly and patiently till he should
divert tho nttcntlon of Mr. W., who
was at tho moment busily engaged
with somo friend. At last the frank,
open faco of the boy attracted his no
tice, and ho addressed him with:
"What can I do for you, sonny?"
"I want a place, sir."
"Well, what can you do?"
The boy answered eagerly:
"Most anything, sir."
Mr. W., partly for a joke, and partly
to rid himself of the almost too con
fident boy, said:
"Ah, nhl Well, just go out und
borrow mo a couplo of thousand dol

walked out of tho gtore. then passed
slowly down ftonl atreot till ho came
to another largo store in the same line
of business as our friends of the past,
Messrs. S. C. and C, then with a bold
but honest look he walked up to tha
head of tho houeo and said:
"Mr. W., of W. and Co., sent mo
down to borrow $2,000."
"Ho did, ray son? Hqy Is business
up at your place?"
Tho boy, having seen the nppear
anoo of largo shipments, answered
"Very good, sir!"
Two thousand dollars, did you say?
Will that bo en6ugh?"
"Well, $2,000 is all ho told me, but
If you havo plonty I think he would

A certain woman of fashion con
spicuous In Washington society, whose
infirmity of temper has given rlso to
vory interesting gossip occasionally,
says tho Phlla. Press, figures in n
quaint llttlo story.
A shoit time ago she was entertain

placed upon tho table a small pot of
chocolate. Tho hostoss of the occa

of her life Unfortunately, the ser
vant had neglected to make moro than
the usual quantity, which was just
about sutficlont for a singlo cup. Ac
cordingly, when tho guest una asked
If sho would havo some, sho hesitated
a moment and said no. Whereupon
hor entertainer flushed with anger at
the contretemps, and, rising from her
seat, dollberatoly poured the contents
of tho chocolato pot out of the window.
This was embarrassing for the lady
entertalnod, to say the least of it
Of course, however, she protend
ed to take no notice merely glancing
slyly l hor hoot, who mado the third
person at the repast, to see if he
evinced any consciousness respecting
the proceeding. But he only smiled
beneath his mustache and made no
Presently hq asked her if sho would
havo some chicken salad, of which a
big dishful mado the principal feature
among tho viands.
"I thank you. no," sho replied,
merely bocauso sho had a preference
for something else.
Immediately, ns if It were a matter
of course, tho lio&t plokod up the
siilad and throw it. dish and all, out
through tho window Into tho garden.
"It's a way wo havo here." ho re
Nobody said anything for quite
five minutes afteniard, but tho ex
treme amiability exhibited by the
hostess for tho rest of the evening, led
the visitor to imagine- that tho lesson
