THE EGGS THAT NEVER HATCH.
There's a yoong man on the corner,
Filled with Iiis and strength and hope ;
Looking far beyond the present,
With the whole world in his scope.
He is grasping at to-morrow,
That phantom none can cate Ii ;
To-day is lost. He's waiting
For the eggs that never hatch.
There's an old man over yonder,
With a worn and weary fat?,
With searching, anxious features,
And weak, uncertain pace.
He is living in the future,
With no desire to catch
The golden Now. He's waiting
For the eggs that never hatch.
There's a world of men and women,
With their life's work yet undone,
Who are sitting, standing, moving
Beneath the same great san ;
Ever eager for the futir J,
But not content to snatch
The Present. They are waiting_

WABASH, IND , December 9.-The^
ten year old daughter of Jas. Dann,
of Xenia, died from trichinosis, a
week or more ago. She complained
of severe pains ia her anas and legs,
and later became unable to walk. The
muscular portions of her limbe swell
ed rapidly, and she suffered great
agony till her death. The physician
failing to comprehend the nature of
her ailment, an examination of a por
tion of the muscle from the upper
arm was made. Wheo placed under
a microscope the portion removed was
alive with trichine. It is said that
two weeks ago the girl ate raw pork,
and that her death resulted from thia.
It is feared other members of the
family will suffer similar attacks.

CHATTANOOGA, TENN , Dec. 8.
The most sensational tragedy that
has been recorded here io years waa
enacted near this city to-day. D. D.
Lofland, a grocer of this city, while
returning from a pursuit after his
faithless wife and her paramour, waa
shot by the woman through the head
and fatally wounded. The murderess
escaped into the mountains. D. D.
Lofland met his bride at Bristol
Tenn., five years ago. Her name waa
- Rosa. Smith -, abe was from iiortb/j
Carolina-a dashing girl of great
beauty and brilliancy. He made con
sid?rable money at Bristol and three
years ago the couple moved to Chat
tanooga where the husband embarked
A few mouths ago James Wilson, a
yoong blood from Social Circle, Ga.,
made the acquaintance of the young
wife and she Beemed completely fas
cinated with his charms. From that
time dated the unhappiness of the
couple. Their domestic bliss was
rudely ended and seri?os quarrels
were of constant occurrence. Io or
der to take her from the city Lofland
purchased a farm in aa adjoining
county, but she became dissatisfied
and he sold it. Shortly afterwards
she applied for a divorce and claimed
$1,500 of the money realized from
the farm as alimony. She secured
possession of the mooey by some
meaos, and on Friday night eloped
with her paramour.
They, first fled to Fort Payne, Ala.,
where the woman has a sister, and
theo took the overland trip to Scotts
boro, Ala, to take the train for the
West. Lofland" followed them, and
they fled from Scottsboro into the
mountains. He overtook them, and
the woman plead so piteously that he
waa turned into her power and he
promised to forgive her. She said she
would retara with him, and they be

The Wondrous iii story of Mme.
Cousine, ot Santiago, Chili*
The Croesus of South America ia a
woman, Donna Isadora Cousino, of
Santiago, Chili, and there are few
men or women in the world richer
than she. There it no end to her
money and no limit to her extrava
gance, and people call her the Count
ess of Monte Cristo? She s traces her
ancestry back to the days of the con
quest, and has the record of the first
of her father? who landed in the New
World. His family was already fa
moa?, for his ancles and eira .fought
under the ensign of the Arragons be
fore the alliance with Casula.. Bat
the Spanish branch of the family waa
lost in the world's great shuffle two
or three centuries^ ago, ejuf BOBO
-vbtm ?ts?ihguished themselves enough
to get their portraits into the oolloo*
tien which Senora Coosino has made
of the lineage ahe claims, _
Like hera,the ancestors o^$erH?&
J husband came over early, and in. the
partition of the lands, and spoils.,
the conquest, both got a .krga. share,
which they kept and iucre?i?d.i>y add- j
ins the portions given to their leas
thrifty and less enterprising aeeociates,
until the two estates became the larg
est, most productive, gad moat valua
ble of all the haciendas of Chili, tad
were finally united into one by the
marriage twenty-four yeera ago of the
lato Don tod hil surviving widow.
While he lived be ?rae considered the
richest man io Chili and ehe the rich
est woman, for their property waa j
kept separate, the husband managing
his estate! ead the wife hor own,, and
people say aha was altogether the bet
ter administrator of the two.
Thia fact he acknowledged in hie j
will, wheo he bequeathed all of his
possessions to her, and piled his Peli
on upon her Ossa, so that abe baa mil
lions of acres of land, millions of dol
?an in mooey, flocks and herds..that
are numbered by the hundreds,.of
thousands, coal, copper and silver
mines, acres of real estate in the cities
of Santiago and Valparaiso, a fleet of
iron st.amshipB, smelting works, a
railroad, and vari?os other trifles in
the way of productive property, which
yield her aa income of several mil
lions a year, that she tries-very hard
to spend, and ander the circumstan
ces succeeds aa well as could be ex
From the coal mines alone Senora
Cousino has aa income of $80,000 a j
mooth, aod there is no reason why
this should not be perpetual, as they
are the only source from whioh fuel
can be obtained in all South America,
and those who do* not buy of her have
to import their coal from Great Brit
ain. I do hot believe there are any
mines in the world which pay oe large
a profit upon the capital iovested and
the labor expended. They lie at the
extreme Boothera limit of the popa-1
lated district pf Chili, jost above j
where the archipelago that you will
cotice oo the map begins. Talcahua
no is the nearest port of importance,
but the towns at the minta are Lota
and Coronel. The coast is quite abrupt
here, and the mines are. entered by
shafts that are immediately over the
water of Lota Bay, so that the coal
is drawn oo tracks to the mooth of
the mines ead damped into launches
aod lighters whioh are towed ont to
the anchorage of ships. It is said that
it coats only $1.35 a ton to mine and
deliver.thia coal on shipboard, and
she will not aell an ounce of it at a
price le s than $7.50 a too, just a
shade lower than the cost of imported
Cardiff. As the deposit is inexhausti
ble, and the widow bas a monopoly(
it will be surmised that thia portion
of her property will yield enough
revenue to keep the wolf from her
She has a fleet_of eight iron ?team:
sa if 5, tii -capacities varying from 2,000
to 3.C00 ton?, bnilt io England, and
need to carry the coal ap the coast as
lar a? Pa^?ama. and around the Straits
of Magellan to Buenos Ayres and
Montevideo. At Lota she baa copper
and ei 1 ver smelting works, besides the
coal mines, and her coaling ships I
bring ore down the coast as a return
cargo from upper Chili, Peru, and
Ecuador, while those that go to Bue
nos Ayres bring back beef and flour
and merchandise for the consumption
of ber people. Mme. Cousino owns
every house in the town pf Lota, and
every one of its six or seven thousand
inhabitants ia dependent upon her for
aupport. In Coronel her proprietor
ship ia not quite so complete, but cine
tenths of tbs people, and 'there are
8,000 there, are on her pay rolls. She
has brick kilns and potteries, as well
as smelters, and makes all toe tiles aod
earthenware used on the weet coast.
I 1KB said that she pays ont from $100,
000 to $120,000 a month as wages in
these two towns, most of which comes
back into ber pocket through the sup
ply atores, where she selb fed sod
clothing to her own people.
Although Lota is only a mining
town, as dirty aod smoky aa any of
its counterparts in Penney 1 vania, it is
the widows favorite place of resi
dence, and abe ia now bnilding a man
sion that will cost a million dollars at
least. The architect and ohief build
er are Frenchmen whom abe imported
from Paris, and much of the material
is imported also. Not long ago ehe
shipped a cargo of hides and wool in
ooo of ber own steamers to Bordeaux,
and it is to come back laden with build
ing supplies for this mansion. She
has no time to go across the sea her
self, and the captain of her ship will
bring with him decorators and design
ers, and upholstery men, who ere to
take a look at things and finish the
interior for her occor ation regardless
This mansion stands in the centre
of what is undoubtedly the finest pri
vate park in the world, including two
hundred and fifty acres of land, laid
ont in the most ela1) rate manner,
?(led with statuary, fountains, grot
tos, caves, cascades, and no end of
beautiful trees and plants. The im
provement of the natural beauty^^of
pihs pUw%???~to~have costSenora
Cousino nearly a million dollars, and
she has a force of thirty gardeners
constantly at work. The super!n
tendent is a Scotchman, and he told
me hi? orders were to make the place
a. paradise, without regard to cost. In
thia park there are many v. ild aci
mels and domesticated pets, not only
nativee of the country, but imported
from off her lands, and the dowers are
At present the madam is living in
a temporary structure, but remains
constantly on the ground to superin
tend the construction of her new home.
Qhe has another park and palace an
hour's drive from Santiago-the finest
"estancia" or plantation in Chili, per
haps in all Son th America, and I do
not know of one in North America or
Europe that will equal it. This is
called "Macal," and the estate stretch
es from the boundaries of the city oi
Santiago far into the Cordilleras,
Whose glistening caps of everlasting
snow mark the limits of the widow's
mite. In the valleys^are, her fields of
grain, her orchards and her vineyards,
while: in the foothills of the motin
tains her flocks of sheep and herds ol
cattle, feed. Here she gives employ
ment to SOO or 400 men, all organ
ized under the direction of superin
tendents, most of whom are Scotch
men, She has one American in her
empioy at "Macul," whose business
is that of a general farmer, but his
time; is mostly occupied in teaching
the natives on the place how to ope
rate; labor saving agricultural ma
r arming in Chili is conducted very
much as it was in England in old feu
dal times, each estate having its re
tainers, who are permitted to use tene
ments, or homes built lhere for that
purpose, and are paid for the amount
of labor they perform. Theee peons
are not permitted to accept employ
ment from any except their own land
lord, and are always subject to bis
call for purposes of war or peace. It
is said that the madam can marshal a
thousand men from her two farms if
she needs them.
The vineyard of "Macul" supplies
nearly all of the market of Chili with
claret and sherry wines, and the cel
lar otk the place, an enormous build
ing, 500 feet long by 100 wide, is
kept constantly full. Mme. Cousino
makes her own bottles, but imports
her labels from France. On this farm
she has some very valuable imported
stock, both cattle and horses, and her
racing stable is the mo? t extensive
uki successful in South America. The
madam takes a great interest m the
turf, attends every racing meeting in
3hili, and always bets very heavily
apon her own horses. At the last
meeting her winnings are reported at
more than a hundred thousand dol
lars outside of the purses won by her
horses, which are always divided
unong the employees of the stables.
In addition to Macul she has anoth
?r large estate about thirty miles from
Santiago, but gives it very little afr
&n???2,-asd has not been ch?re for a
lumber of years. Tn'the city she has
two large and fine houses, one of them
being the former .residence of Henry
Me?ggS, Vhe OattfohnS fugitiv?, wUhuZ "
was tho finest residence in Santiago
at the iime it was built. All the tim
ber and other material used in its
construction came from California|
?nd it ia mostly red cedar. The con
struction and architecture are after
the American plan, and in appearar.ee
and arrangement it resembles the vii
las at Newport. The cost Was enor
mous, but it was built in the days of
Meiggee gloiy, when money was o?'
no value to him. The other city resi
dence of Senora Cousino s a stone
mansion erected on the Spanish-Aui*?ri
can plan, with a court in the centie,
and is ornamented with some very
elaborate carving. The interior was
decorated and furnished many years
ago by Parisian artists, at an enor
mous cost, and the house is fit for the
palace of a king. There is no more
elaborate"or extensive residence in
America, and the money expended
upon it would build as finn a hon.-e
aa that of W. H. Vanderbilt in New
York. The widow spends very little
time in its walls, however, as she pre
fers her home at Lota, where most of
her business is.
Her ability as a manager is re
markable, and ehe directs every de
tail, receiving weekly reports from the
ten or twelve superintendents who
have immediate charge of her affairs- '
While abe is generous to profligacy,
she requires a strict account of eve)
dollar earned or spent upon her va
estates, and is very sharp at drivir
a bargain. One of her Scotch supe
intendente told me that there was r
use in any one trying to get ahead <
the Madam. " You cannot move
stone or a stick but she knows it," h
said. In addition to her landed prq
erty and her mines, she owns mac
city r?al estate, the rental of whic
brings her several hundred thouean
dollars a year, and she is the princi
pal stockholder in the largest bank i:
Santiago* Not long ago she presenl
ed a park of a hundred acres to th
people of that city and a race coure
The Madam is very fond of yoaoj
men, and has from fifteen to twenfr
jnn??r; frlloWB r? i ill VinrTrTnrtrrinrij
to whom slie gives all the money the;
can spend. In return she expect
them to entertain her. While th
United States fleet was at Valparaisi
not long ago she invited all the offi
cere to spend a week with her a
" Macul" and Santiago, and sent i
special train to brjng them up. Ad
mirai Upshur and about twenty o
his officers accepted the invitation
lodged at the widow's hon???*, and hac
a high old time at her e^a^ae. Sin
would not allow one of them to spend
a dollar, and sent word to all thc
shops and restaurants that anything
the American officers ordered was tc
be charged to her account. There
was a good deal of scandal over this
affair at Santiago, and the Americans
who were not asked to share the mad
am's hospitality felt at liberty to talk
about it as severely as they pleaeed.
But the officers were in no way to
blame, for this was one of the lady's
freaks, and her method of having a
good time. Every person of distinc
tion who comes to Chili is entertained
by her, and her balls are marvels of
social splendor. Lady Brassey, io
her story of the voyage of the Sun
beam, gives an account of her ac
quaintauce with Senora Cousino, and
the splendor in which she lives.
Last spring the Madam fitted cut
one of her coal ships, provisioned it
in the most extravagant manner, hired
an orchestra of twelve pieces, and
invited a party ol' fifty or more ladies
and gentlemen lo take a cruise. The
puty visited Juan Fernandez, the
island that is sacred to the memory
of Robinson Crusoe, and then..?piV
down the coast to Terra del Fuego,
where several dayB were spent in
search of a good time. From theeto
ries that are told the errand was sue
ceeslul, and the gossips of Chili will
never cease to talk about it. The
cruise lasted about three weeks, and
cost the madam many thousands of
Fabulous stories are told of her ex
tiavagar.ee. A million of dollars or
BO is a trifle to .a woman whose in
come is so enormous, and there is
nothing in the world that she will not
buy if she happens to want it. She
doesn't care much for art, but has a
collection of diamonds that is very
large and valuable, and sometimes
appears loaded down with thom. Usu
ally she looks very shabby, as she has
no taste or ambition iu dress, and her
party costumes that are ordered from
Paris are seldom worn. Of late she
has been a sufferer frrnn sciatica, and
it has not only destroyed the madam's
own pleasure, but has seriously im
paired the comfort of those who have
relations with her. Although a com
paratively young woman, being some
where between forty-five and fifty
years of age, she declares that she
will not marry again, and there is not
a min in Chiii who has the courage
to ask her. Not long since she took
a fancy to a young German, with a
very blonde beard and hair, and in
sisted that he should give up his busi
ness and make his home with her.
The inducements she offered were
sufficient, and for several months the
young man has been tied to her apron
strings, having the ostensible employ

They would like to fight if

inceiyable that they have so far
teir senses as to seriously con

that,eiperiment with such disasttous

thing would be past all belief. The

the. Territory belonged to Mexico for
the; express purpose of getting out of

Mexican war brought them within
the; jurisdiction of the hated govern

ing a stupendous game of bluff with
the legal authorities. This is avails

it is merely a precautionary measure
The: Mormons have a militia number
ing 20,000 well drilled men, and for
years they have maintained an inex
