VOL. LXIV. NO. 41.
neta political lifo-which is far less
formidable tbau an armed and booted
dictator close at hand.
When ho left there were five statues
of him ornamenting as many public
places in the republic. He had him
self caused them to be erected, aud it
was by his order that this inscrip
tion appeared on each of them:
?TO THAT ILLUSTRIOUS AMERICAN,:
: THE PACIFICATOR AND RE
; GENERATOR OF THE :
; UNITED STATES OF VENEZUELA, :
: GEN. ANTONIO GUZ.MAN-BLANCO. :
And they did not misrepresent
the case, as monument sometimes do.
He may have acquired wealth him
self, but he made his country rich.
He may have exercised arbitrary
power, but they needed what he gave
them and were better for it. He may
have been cruel and bloody aud ty
rannical, but all his excesses of au
thority never cost them in blood and
treasure what they paid when they
had no master.
Some idea may by the following in
cident be gained of his manner of dis
charging the commissions his own
power had secured. He was to buy
a new cruiser for his country and
might spend $750,000 for it. He did
spen *..3(300,000-or, nt least, ho drew
that amount. But good men eay he
paid but $148,000 for the very indif
ferent vessel he bought and put the
iemaining $452,000 in his bank. He
raised the rate of interest on govern
ment bonds held in Europe and
lowered it on bonds held at home,
getting a good fee for the transaction.
He located immigration parties uot
only on public land, but on rvivate
land unoccupied. He demanded that
students who refused to adorn his
statues, as was the annual custom, be
shot, and he commanded the presi
dent to enact much Guzman-Bianco
Of course the financial and commer
cial classes were alienated. Of course
the agricultural aud mining interests
were antagonized. Of course thc stu
dents flamed into open and vociferous
enmity. And then, one by one, tho
generals who were bound to the ab
sent dictator were reduced, aud "the
illustrious Americau" learned what is
meant by the adage, "Out of sight,
out of mind."
He might have rallied all the force
in the country if he had appeared at
any port or in any capital. But he
was glowing old. Ease had enervated
him. His lust for power was as strong
as ever, but he more and more dread
ed the awful labor that recapturing a
So he died, the father of nine chil
dren, proprietor of a magnificent
property in Paris, the euvied of mon
archs, the spectre of millious far
across Hie sea. And yet he was, when
ali is said and done, just what his five
statues declare-"the pacificator and
regenerator of Venezuela."

One Gignntic l?lrd'n XcM in I.orson
Island, Near Honolulu.
Lcyson island, which is perhaps the
most interesting of tue Hawaiian
group, lies about eight hundred miles
west of Honolulu. It is not over a
hundred miles in extent, but is exceed
ingly valuablo on account of the
guano beds which completely cover it.
It is au upheaval of a coral reef, with
no forests, but numerous small trees
and shrubs. About twenty-five species
of birds are found there, iucluding
ducks, boobies, gulls and frigate
"On this small speck of land far
out iu the ocean," says John B.
Musick, in his book, "Hawaii, Our
New Possession," the birds lay, hatch
and die by millions. When they fly
the sun is darkened as if a cloud had
passed over it. The decaying bones,
with disintegrated corni, help to form
the guano, which is exported every
year by hundreds of tons in ships to
Hawaiian islands and tho Pacific
coast. The birds seldom lay more
than one egg before incubation,
though often sevoral in a season.
They are very tame, and so bold thaf.
you can pick them up as you walk
along the path. They snap at the
trousers and dresses of persons who
are crossing the island, so that ono is
compelled to carry a stick for self-pro
tection. They gather on the railroad
track in such numbers that n mau has
to sit in front of the car as it is drawn
by the mules with a stick in hand, aud
' push them out of the way
"Sometimes parties of scientists or
hunters visiting the island find the
birds come tumbling into the doors of
their teut or any other opening, so
that in order to sleep in peacev every
' aperture must be closed. Mr. Frieze,
the manager of the island, told me
that he was often compelled to keep
the door of his houpe closed to shut
the birds ont.
" 'Why, they tumble around us by
the thousauds, and become a
nuisance,' he said.
" 'Do you shoot them?' I asked.
"Shoot them! No! Why waste
ammunition? If I want a bird I
simply go out and pick it up. Oftou
they will run right into my hands, as
if they wanted to be caught. '
"The eggs on Leyson island are
frequeutly gathered in wheelbarrows,
cars filled with them and schooners
loaded. This industry, however, is
unprofitable, owing to the great dis
tance they have to be exported.
"We hope the white mau will not
consider the birds of Leyson island
one of his burdens and proceed to ex
terminate them, as was done with the
buffalo and other animals by advanc
The manager, Mr. Frieze, with
several Japanese servauts,lives on the
island six months in the year.
What Constitu?an a Healthy Man.
One of our medical contemporaries,
the Texas Medical News, thus sums
up the qualities which constitute a
perfectly healthy man: He should
have a strong, healthy heart; not one
weak from disuse or the excessive use
of tobacco, alcohol or other causes;
luugs well developed and that expand
rhythmically with ample breathing
".pace for health and a surplus for
/ork or disease; muscles well round
ed and elastic, made hard and strong
by use and carrying, like the camel's
hump, reserve energy for trying jour
neys; nerv?s, naluro's electric wires,
properly insulated and connected,
bringing all the various organs of the
body into one perfect system, and all
under the coutrol of a brain of just
proportions, well balanced and convo
luted, not soft from disuse or de
stroyed for the need of rest, educated
for the high duties it has to perform,
not only to stand guard over and pro
tect the health of aud life of the in
dividual, but at the same time to fur
nish feeling and thought and pleasure
for the human being. All of thesoor
gnns, when properly constructed and
adjusted aud perfect in every detail,
go to make up a healthy individual
and one possessing within himself a
power of resistance not easily over-'
come by disease-producing organisms.
FOR THE HOUSEWIVES,
A Wall Paper Paste.
A paste for wall paper is made by
moistening some starch with cold
water until of the consistency of.
cream. Then pour on boiling water
and stir until quite smooth. Let it
boil once, and just before removing it
from the fire add a small quantity of
denning: Fine Handkerchiefs.
Fine i ace-trimmed handkerchiefs
do not require the ordeal of boiling or
scalding; Shave slices and bits of

the water for half AU hour, then wa.<h
them hurriedly between the hands in
clear hot water. Binse in cold water

Stain* On Table Linen.
Bofoie scuding table linen to the
laundry, at this season especially, it
should be carefully looked over, and
all stains removed. Ordinarily, fruit
stains may be readily takeu out ? by
spreading the staiued part of the
fabric over the top of a bowl and
pouring hot water from the teakettle
through the stain. Peach stains will
not yield to this treatment; but if
nibbed in alcohol before, pnttiug the
linen in water, they will usually dis
appear. If more heroic measures are
necessary.usc Javelle water, but rinse

When CoflVe 1? L"rt Over.
With the most careful calculation,
says Mrs. Lincoln, there is frequently
coffee left over, not enough, perhaps,
for another serving as a beverage, but
too much to be wastell. Do not leave
it iu the pot with grounls, but pom
it off or strain it carefully, and if it be
used airain hot let it just coma to tho
boiling point. This will be much
nicer than to reheat it with the
grounds. It may be used to dilute
the eg? for the next morning's coffee,
or as a flavoring in custards and
creams and ices; or as the liquid in
place of or with milk iu gingerbread,
cookies, cakes, etc., or when there is
sufficient quantity it eau be made into
jelly.-New York Tribune.
Some Hints Tor Hom.- Building.
lu considering the interior of^ a
house, those portions of it which meet
the vital needs of the family, the kit
cheus and bedrooms, are of first im
portance. The kitchen should be
small enough for convenience and
large enough, if possible, for comfort
in warm weather. An oblong shape
seems desirable, a short distance be
tween the range and the serving table,
a long distauee stretching between
two windows for good ventilation.
The kitchen should be so placed that
the prevailing winds will blow the
fumes from the house and not into
the living rooms. If the plan for cost
and size will admit, other window;s
may be set above a liue of shelves,
where they will admit sun and air and
yet not occupy wall space needed for
furniture. A kitchen porch should bo
added where vessels can be sunned,
and where butcher and baker can de
posit their wares and leave the kitchen
floor clean and the cook's temper con
sequently uurnflied, .
Between the kitchen and the body
of the house there should be a passage
way with openings opposite each othar.
Thi3 is another insurance policy
against kitchen odors, which, howetor
clean aud proper in the kitchen, do
not belong in the other part oftha_
house. We know that cooking md
clcauing must go on iu our homes,
but it is a part of the housekeeper's
art to hide the machinery and slow
only tte charming results. As we go
towards the front of the house *e

room and pantries, as in so many
houses, but through ti aide passage,

baking powder; add the beaten whites
of three eggs, and finally add one
quart of berries. Put into a buttered
dish and bake moderately for 45 min
utes. Serve with a hot sauce.
Green Pea Soup-Pens too old aud
hard for the table make a delicious
soup. Cook one quart of peas in one
pint of gently boiling water till soft.
Mash in the water, press through a
sieve, put the hulls into a pint of boil

Travel* of n Valuable Tin Box.
Mayor Foulk of Piedmont, W. Va.,
has received a letter from William
Boyce of Philadelphia, stating that
while repairing a car in the freight
yard in tho city he found under it a
tin box containing a number of papers
belonging to the town of Piedmont.
At the mayor's request it was for
warded, and found to contain, besides
other papoiH, ."571)5 worth of uncan
celled coupons of the water bonds,
representing bonds to the amount of
$5;l0l). The coupons had been de
tached from the bonds sold by
the council in 1807,. and were for
th reo years. The box was taken from
the safe by some unknown party the
first part of last year, placed under
the freight car, probably while stand
ing in tho Piedmont yards, and has
since been carried all around the coun

Some of the exploits of these rod rov

Robert A. McCreary, of I.eechburg,
Kansas, just returned from tho Klon
dike, tells of the strange experience
of Gus Anderson, who preceded him
to the gold fields. Anderson is uow a
millionaire and will soon return. He
went to the Klondike three years ago
with $SO0. A wave of iii fortune
brought him wealth. Two miners had
staked out a claim on El Dorado
Creek. They heard Anderson had
money, and not having sufficient
moans to begin work wpnt to Ander
son and offered to soil. Anderson re
fused to buy, so the owners of the ap
parently poor claim proceeded to make
Anderson drunk. The strangers made
out a deed for their claim, turned it
over to Anderson and relieved him of
his money. When he discovered the
action he was broken-hearted. Finnlly
ho concluded to make the best of his
hard lot. and went to work on the
claim without hopes. HP sunk a shaft
and a month later hp cashed out ?2,
200. Thc men who forced him to buy
thou demanded a fourth interest An
derson secured help. Tho first year hi
cleared $240,000 and the next $250,000
and the iiiinp promises hotter results
this year. John Berger and McCreary
worked a claim next to Anderson's
?iud found nothing. They then wont
to work for Anderson at ?<> ppr day.

The Largest Dujout.
The Mendocino (Cal) Beacon tells of
a novelty in the shape of a schooner
that is to be made from a single red.
wood tree, which will probably be the
largest '"dugout" ever floated. Captain
Miudron intends to cut down one of
tho big redwood trees in Humboldt
County and convert it iuto a boat, in
which he will sail ?round Cape Horn
and cross the Atlantic in time to hare
a conspicuous part in the Paris Ex
"I will build," the captain says, "a
schooner from one of the big trees in
Humboldt County. The hull shall be
one solid piece-simply the trunk of
the tree hollowed out and hewn into
proper shape. I will take a free from
twenty-two to twenty-four feet In dia
meter for my boat. She will be forty
eight feet long fifteen feet beam and
?jn feet deep, ?nd will be rigged as a
schooner. I figure that it will take me
from two to three months to complete
it. I will snil from here and go around
Capp Horn or through the Straits of
Magellan, across the Atlantic and up
the Seine to Paris. I want to be able
to start in time to reach Cape Horn
about the last of December of this
year, so that I will arrive at Paris by
Mav of 1000."_
