William Pratt McComas, the million
aire mine owner of San Francisco,
who wife's suicide at their apart
ments In that city several days ago
led to his arrest and subsequent re
lease, was one time superintendent cf
too 1'tebee schools, or rather was. prin
cipal of the Itlsbee High school, as
that was many years ago.
This Interesting fact was recalled
jesterday afternoon by M. E. Cassldy.

Since leaving Bisbee McComas has

Mexico and in recent years has re
sided at San Francisco. He married

You find him in the crowded street
And In the country lane;
He's felt the eting of Arctic sleet
And climbed the hills of Spain
No spot on earth's unknown to him:
He's roamed on every shore:
He's been in regions dark and dim
Where man ne'er trod before.
Where lions prowl and tigers croara
He goes whene'er he can.
At being trave Ini Is no slouch
That moving picture man'
On mountain peaks so chill and high.
In marshes dark and dank
He goes, nor never heaves a sigh.
But calmly turns a crnnk.
You find him oft where danger is,
A camera In his hand;
Where cannons boom nnd bullets whiz
lie goes and takes his stand.
lie's fearless as the winds that blow;
He's always in the van;

Queues and Hair Supply.
Consul General Anderson, stationed
tt Hongkong. ha3 recently taken pains
to correct the widespread impression
that the growing tendency on the part
of Chinamen to dispense with their
queues will have the effect of making
false hair cheap. It appears that the
queue3 when cut are never sold, but
aro always preserved for burial with
the owner. Mr. Anderson says that
this is an absolute rule throughout
South China, as well as in all other
parts of the country from which he
has been able to secure Information
on Uie subject.

years the seed of the cotton plant, ex
cept what was required for planting
purposes, was practically valueless.
In the opinion of the southern cotton
farmer. The seed was hauled away
to be dumped Into the streams or left
to rot in fields. Today this is chang
ed and the once despised byproduct
of the cotton fields Is steadily loom

oil for lubricant and table p-jrposes,
meal for catUe food, cake and hulls
for fertilizer, food, etc., cotton seeds
are a source of enormous wealth to
the southern country- The industry,
which only a few ye?rs back was un
known. Is now a gold ruine.

A contest took place la Paris which
seems to Tlndlcate the contention
that modern violins are as good la

Arnold's Unfailing Tact.
Recollections of Justin McCarthy
are numerous just now. One of them
speaks of a conversation between Mc
Carthy and Dean Stanley. Whils
they were talking Matthew Arnold
was announced, and the dean, address
ing the new arrival, said: "Como
here. Matt, and let me bring you face
to face with tho man who says you
are only a miniature Goethe." Mc
Carthy was naturally embarrassed at
the repetition of a remark that seem
ed to bo ill-natured. "Oh, come, now,
I didn't say only a miniature Goethe,"
ho stammered, but Arnold promptly
relieved the situation by remarking
with a winning smile: "If he could
only convince rae that I am a minia
ture Goethe, how proud of myself ho
vould make ,Be."
Elmer E Brown, the new chancellor
f New York University, tells the fol-
owlnz anecdote: "Near the approacn
