THE OLD FABM HOME.
If you're bocn a happy rover
Through tlio floIJs of fragrant clover,
Whero Ufa la nil o simple round of bliss,
When at ovo tho sun Is sinking,
And the stnr uro fAlnlly vtlnklDp
You can coll to mind ft picture such an this;
Hark t Tho cows are homeward roaming
Through lite woodland pasture's gloaming!
1 can hear thera Rently lowing through the dolls.
And from out tho bosky dlngls
Domes tho softly tangled Jlnglo
And the oft repeated echo of the belli
Strange how memory will fling her
Arms about some scenes we bring her.
And the 'flouting years but make them stronget
Though I wander far and sadly
From that dear old home, how gladly
1 recall the cherished sconos of long ago.
Hark I Tho cows are homowtfrd roaming
Through the woodland pasture's gloaming;
1 can bear them gently Ion lng through Ibe dells.
And from out the bosky dingle
Domes the softly tangled jingle
And the oft repeated echo of the bolls.

LAST STKIKE AT OPIUK.
Ophir was tho most prosporoua mining
camp on tho western slopo of the Sierra,
and Wash. Bonner was the most prosper
ous miner it contained. Hia claim, tho
"Blue Juniata," was paying enormously,
and Wash had bocomo very popular, for
he gave awuy hia money as fast as ho
made it. Wash was n tall, good humored
Missourian, lean, light haired and sleepy.
No one gave him credit forxnuoh energy
or ambition, and tho accident by which
he hud stumbled upon his claim when
the camp was first settled was told far
and wide ob a capo of "fool luck."
It happened this way: Tho camp be
gan as a placer camp, and all tho "claims''
along tho stream or on tho flat were
taken up, when Wash, a tall greenhorn
of a new comor, drifted in without a
dollar to his name and stood "watching
the Bailor company of runaways from
ships in Sau Francisco bay as thoy took
out their "ounce to the man" from tho
best washings in tho camp.
"What ore you lookin' at, young fel
low?" Baid tho captain of tho company.
"Why don't you stake out a claim?"
"All taken," said Wash slowly.
"Go np on tho top of the hill by them
oaks," said tho man, winking at his com
rades. "More there than hero."
Wash borrowed a pick, went to the
place indicated, and in an hour developed
the most famous mino of tho district. It
was a curious pocket mino in -a loose,
broken formation, and though every
one rushed to tho place and staked out
tho wholo hillside, no other claim ever
paid a tenth port as much as tho "Blue
In the course of timo, as tho region be
came settled and mon with families came
in, Wash fell In love with the pretty
duughter of a farmer in tho Sacramento
valley. He reviewed the post, a hundred
thousand dollars had come out of his
mine, and ho had nothing left to show
for it. He resolved that if tho girl
would havo him ho would never waste
another cent He went to the claim,
worked all day, struck a "pocket," and
took out mora than a thousand dollars,
the largest yield of a singlo day in tho
history of the mino. Then he quit work,
went to the town, "spruced himself up,"
drove down into the valley, called on
the girl, proposed and was accepted.
"Jennie," haiil Wash, "you've got to
take me. ef you want me, jest as if 1
hadn't any mine and wasn't worth a
"1 do," said Jennie; "it's you 1 care
A month later they wero married, and
began housekeeping in a little house of
white pine built near tho mine. Then!
Wash began tho regular development of
his claim. For six months ho kept up
courage, though not n dollar had como
from it in all that time. They lived on
what was left of tho $1,000 after the
wedding expenses were taken out. Then
one day Wash said: "Jennie, the boys
think the old mine is played out, but I
don't. I'll never givo it up while I live.
I'll find a bigger pocket in that mountain
tide than any man ever yet struck in
Ho climbed tho hill, and began work
on a tunnel whioh should strike the
broken, gold bearing ledges at lowor
point than he had yet reached.
Months mora passed over the heads of
the miner and his wife. One after on
' other their friends deserted them. Their
credit gave out, and thoy lived on game,
fish and berries, so that the little money
they had could all be spent for blasting
powder. Every morning at daybreak
Wash, gaunt and silent, went to his
work, every night at dark he stumbled
home to his cabin.
"Jennie," he said, "I know there is
gold there. We will find it soon. I
never beforo worked a month in the old
mino without taking out Bomothing:
This deadlock has lasted moro than a
year. It can't lost always. I will find
tho lead again, and then we will let the
rest go, and buy a farm in tho valley,
whore we can forget about this fight."
Bho believed every word, for she was
a loving, loyal woman, and she knew
that this great awkward Missouri on was
a man among thousands. The very boys
in town hooted after him and called him
crazy, but she knew better. Her family
had once urged her to leave him and
come home, but they never vantured to
suggest it again. Old miners passing
by looked at the claim, and said there
was no gold loft. Men who had thou
sands of 'dollars from her husband, and
'owed their entire fortunes to him, at
lastrefased to give him credit for a sack
of flour orasido of bacon.
"You stick lor the mine, Wash; I'll
stick by you," was oil that Jennie said.
She never told her husband that she had
gone to her brother, who was rich, and
baked him for a !ttla, tupnoy tqcarrj
hhm through the winter, "tybt for that
spendthrift Misaourian tq waste," was
jus answer. "Ho cat) clerk iu my etoro

hnvo dono everything to help them
offered them a farm und tho best kind of
a show down in tho valley."
It was an afternoon in October. Tho
saloonkeeper sat on the bonch by his
door reading n newspaper. Ho heard n
noiso at tho hoad of tho street; tho vil
lage boys wero shouting, "Hero conuis
tho crazy Missonrian minerl" Wash,
ragged and misorablo, cumo into sight,
and after a moment's hesitation spoke to
"Evening, Mr. Riley."
"I can't do anything for you."
"Mr. Riloy, listen to mo. I hain't a
cent in tho world. Wo'vo sold all our
goods and worked in tho mino together
this month. Jennio'sheld tho drill whilo
I druv it. I can't get a pound of pow
der, but tho holes aro all set in tho face,
ready. Something tells mo this timo it
will touch gold. I can feoHt just ahead.
Tvo felt it all along, but no wit's right
thar, within reach of ono moro blast I
toll you, Riley, I know it's thar."
"You'ro crazy, Wash."
"Riloy, you've got money. Givo mo
one keg of powder an' I'll mako you n
rich man. I'll givo you hnlf wo take out.
You don't know how I've worked this
year. I've hammered from daylight to
dark, gono hungry and slept cold, tin'
foil down in a dead faint timo und timo
over. Put your hand thar!" Ho seized
the saloonkeeper's hand and hold it on
his breast Tho man felt Wash's heart
sway several inches, as if it had torn
looso from its placo, and its wild, loud
throbbing was like the beating of n
mighty engino. "Thar," 6aid Wabh,
"yotfseo I ain't for long. That mine's
for my wife. Sho's stayed with it uiid
with me. I ought to havo diopped it
and put my pride down long ago, but
now it's too late. Riloy, will you let mo
have the powder?"
Wash lookod at his old enomy and
No one in all that camp understood
the proud, unyielding soul that had set
itself to wrestle with naturo and her
secret Tho afternoon woro on into
night, and night into morning, and
morning, noon and afternoon built up
another day. Wash did not como back.
Some boys climbed tho hill and went
into tho tunnel. Thero lay Wash, dead,
at the further end of tho tunnel, his pick
in his hand. Ho had gone back to break
his own way into tho treasure house, but
his hourt had burst in tho midst of a
giant stroke, and ho had fallen across
his own weapon. There his wife hid
found him, and she, too, weak and sick
and heartbroken, lay in a faint over his
Ophir camp woko with a start to some
dim sense of its crime. Tender hands
carried Wash and his wife out of the
tunnel, and did all that could be dono
for the poor woman.
A dozen men went back into tho tun
nel from which they had taken tho dead
man, and looked at the place where his
lost -faltering shock had glanced off thp
"Boys,"' Baid one, "I'll never forget
that I told Walsh he couldn't have any
more powder, not if ho died in his tun
nel. Well bet off them lust blast hole1)
jest as he- wanted, and then we'll bury
him in hero where Jio dropped."
There was plenty of blasting powder
now to be hud for the asking, and in u
fow minutes the fuco of tho drift was
ready for the blast, the fuses set and
lighted, word had got uround tho camp
and every man was gathered at tho
mouth of tho tunnel. A few women
wero in the old cabin caring for tho dy
ing wife. A long silence followed tho
lighting of the fuses, aud suddenly the
dull noise of tho shock and tho fall of
heavier masses of rock than usual star
tled tho miners outside.
They ran into the tunnels with thoir
lights. Tho blast had opened a wide
path into an irregular cavern gleaming
with gold. Above, below and on all
sides was tho shining, precious motttl.
The last blast for which Wash had strug
gled bo bravely had revealed a fortune
Tho excited minors rushed out again
with a wild shout A woman met them
with flushed and frightened face.
"How can you muko such a noise?"
she said. "Tho poor thing's gono, cry
ing like u baby for her dead man."
Tho miners drew closo togother,
ashamed and profoundly affected. Af
ter a little a fow of them went back to
tho tunnel and secured Wash's pickax,
which had been lying against tho wall.
"Wo can't bury them horo, now," said
ono, "tho mino will bo worked again.
Thoy must lie on tho hillside, where all
his old friends of twenty years ago are

brother came up und took possession of

It became generally understood in the
region that tho wealth of the "Blue Ju

mated by conservative minora at a quar

Id his tunnel a blight seemed to full on
the little camp of Ophir, Mine after

havo said, the "Blue Juniata" yielded all

It may bo stated without fear of tlis
puto that Mhi Ella Ewlng, of Fair
mount, Clark county. Mo., is tho pos
sessor of bigger feet than any other
woman in the country The yothig
lady, who is now but 18 years of ago,
ordered last week a pair of shoos, and
thoy aro now very nearly finished. The
shoes aro tho largest ever turned out In

There is enough leather in ono of the
heels to build five pairs of ordinary la
dles' shoes, and tho leather in each shoe
would bo sufficient, if it all could bo
utilized, to mako thirty pairs of ordina

lust, states that within tho period of his
eighteen years' experience in tho shoo
business ho has never men anything to
quite equal Miss Ewing's foot
It took him u day and u -half to look
up the timber, and when ho flnnlly se
cursed a large onough tnaplo block to

Miss Ewing, the young lady who will
wear the shoes when thoy are entirely
constructed, is thG duughter of u tanner
at Fairmount, and it is understood spent
thu early part of her life lu the woods
Her height is 7 feet 10 inches, and her
weight 225 pounds She is therefoie
rather blender for her height. Tho
young lady has been in the habit of hav

country place near where she lives, and
the latter evidently has not been fitting
her as well us he should.

The pretty wedding breakfast that
took place in the banquet hall of that
beautiful stone castle of "Islington," in
a subuib of Boston, lust week, may safe
ly bo said to have banished at lust tho
sad gloom that has hung around that
modern palace, oven if it could not dis
sipate its mystery.
Within "Islington" E. D. WinBlow
planned his schemes to sink a newspaper
that he owned, and all his own fair fame
for money. His plun accomplished, he
suddenly departed for South America,
and thero, it is said, lives today u rich
und influential citizen, though legally
ostracized from his native land.
Within "Islington' two years ago
Royal M. Pulsifer, esteemed tho wealth
iest newspaper publishor of Boston, und
a man whose lifo'was supposed to bo all

found dead. Alone ho had gono to his
unoccupied summer homo and thero
whether by mischance or design was
never known hud taken tho chloral,
which in small amount would have
temporarily released him from tho cares
pressing upon him, but which, in its
largo umount, released him forever.
