EN IN A FIX.
Young Man's Ruse to Find Out if His
Girl Really Cared for Him.
The young man in love is an inter
esting creature. Given a sympathetic
listener, he will tell many things in a
voice that is awed, because what he
is telling seems so holy to him. Such
a young man said: "I couldn't feel sure
my girl really cared for me, so I wrote
myself this telegram: 'Will you go
as'accountant for a tea firm in China
at -salary of $60 per week? Start
Thursday. Answer at once.' I signed
the name of a fictitious firm and show
ed the girl the telegram as soon as I
got to her house that night She read
it, and then she looked at me gravely.
'What do you think about it?* she
asked. 'I don't know what to think,'
said I. She mused a little while. 'Do
you want to go?' she asked me. 'Ir it
wasn't for you, I'd want to go,' I an
swered. Then she B&'.S, in a faint
voice: 'Do whatever you think best.'
Td go, if it wasn't for you,' I replied.
She sat very still, looking at the fire.
Then all of a sudden she began to cry.
'Oh, don't go! don't go!' she wailed.
'Don't go and leave me all alone.
What would I do-what would I do
without you?' So I told her I wouldn't
. go. It is a grand thing to have a girl
care for you so much as that. I know
that this girl loves me truly." "If I
had been the girl," said the young
man's listener. "I should have said:
'Accept the offer, and we'll be married
at once and start for China together,' "
The young man grinned. "Gosh! I
hadn't thought of that," he admitted.
"Wouldn't I have been in a fix,
though, if she had said that?"
Poles Frozen in Position.
The telegraph line now in course of
construction from a point on Norton
sound, Alaska, through the gold mine
camps ou the Upper Yukon river to
connect with the Canadian landline
system in Alberta province presents
some curious difficulties to engineers.
There being no wood in the country,
steel poles are employed similar to
those used for tho trolley wires in
Brooklyn and winter is selected as" the
season for work, because these poles
can be most easily sledded over the
ground and ice of the frozen rivers
an i lakes at that time. Even in sum
mer the ground for a depth of twelve
inches down is frozen solid, and in
setting a pole the operation consists
simply in blasting a hole In the froz
en soil, sticking in a pole and pouring
in water. This freezes, and, unless
the climate of Alaska changes, will re
main frozen indefinitely, holding the
pole firmly and solidly. It ls expect
ed that this line will be in operation
through to Cape Nome early next
summer.-New York Sun.

Their Present Condition Contrasted With
?"hat of a Century Aec.
The agricultural laborers of to-day
are certainly better clad, more luxuri
ously fed, have far more leisure, are
better educated, and are rapidly be
coming better housed than their fore
fathers a century ago. And if thes?
are the main constituents of happi
ness, then they are happier.
On the other hand, their grandfath
ers and great-grandfathers were much
more gay and light hearted than the
modern; they enjoyed their lives much
more than their descendants' do; they
had incomparably more laughter, more
amusement, more real delight In the
labor of their hands; there was more
love among them and less hate. The
agricultural laborer had a bad drunk
en time between twenty or thirty
years ago, and he has been growing
out of that. A village sot is now a
very rare bird, as rare as he was a
hundred years ago. Then the laborer
could not afford a drunken debauch
he had not the wherewithal. His mas
ter, the farmer, did drink, and some
times deeply in the days when he was
prospering. And for a few years after
the rise of the laborer's wages, some
twenty-five years ago, the laborer was
the publican's friend. But hard armit
ing has been steadily declining, and
the habitual drunkard is looked upon
as a coarse brute to be avoided. As
to other vices, things are pretty much
as they were; I am afraid rather
worse than better.
Perhaps the saddest characteristic
of the men of the present, as compared
with the men of the past, is that the
men of the past were certainly more
self-dependent-I dc not meau inde
pendent, in the sense in which that
word is used now-more resourceful,
more kindly, courteous, and contented
with their lot than their descendants
I think I know something about the
English peasantry of a century or two
gone by. I think I know just a little
about the agricultural laborer nowa
days. I bear him a genuine love, and
feel with him a cordial sympathy, an.l
there is no knowing any men or any
class of men whom we do not lov<; anil
sympathize with. But as to the agri
cultural laborer of the future, I am
sometimes inclined to doubt seriously
whether before another century has
ended there will be any such thing as
an agricultural laborer to know.

FLEECE OF THE ANGOEA.
MILLION POUNDS ANNUALLY PRO
DUCED IN THE UNITED STATES.
A Statement Issued by tho Depart mont of
.Agriculture Itetpccting Grades and Val
ues - Goat Meat Is Mach Better Food
Tlian Mutton - Tastes Uko Yoaison.
The department of agriculture an
nually receives thousands of letters of
inquiry concerning Angora goats, and
in view of the interest taken In the
subject Mr. D. E. Salmon, chief of
the bureau of animal industry, recent
ly made some investigations on the
uubject. It is estimated, he says, that
there are about 400,000 Angora goats
in the United States, and that their
annual production of fleece is over a
million pounds. ,
The history of the Angora goat in
the United States. Mr. Salmon says,
has been marred by the carelessness
or indifference of occasional writers
for the press, who have often been in
accurate as to dates or facts, and also
by others whose Interests have doubt
less led thom into exaggerations. The
real facts of its history, however, are
so few and so simple as to prompt
that venerable breeder. William M.
Landrum, to say that they would make
but a very small book. During the ad
ministration of President Polk the Sul
tan of Turkey requested of him that
be recommend some one who' would
experiment in the culture of cotton in
Turkey. Accordingly, Dr. James B.
i Davis of Columbia. S. C.. was rec
j ommended, and he received the ap
I pointment. The work done by Dr.
I Davis appeared to be highly gratify
! ing to the Sultan, and so, upon his re
I turn, in 1849, the Sultan, desiring to
reciprocate the courtesy of the Presi
dent, presented him with nine of the
choicest goats in his dominion. Col.
Richard Peters, writing in 1876, says
of these animals: "These doubtless
were selected from the herds of An
gora, a district of country lying among
the Taurus mountains, which trav
erse Asiatic Turkey, and which de
; rives its name from its principal city,
j situated about 200 miles east of Con
! stantinc .'* It does not seem, there
fore, that Dr. Davis encountered any
great difficulty in securing this first im
portation of Angora goats into this
"Of the nine Angoras imported by
'' Dr. Davis, seven were does and two
were bucks. Besides these, according
j to Col. Peters, there came in the same
lot one pure-bred Thibet doe. several
! head of crosses between the Angora
and Thibet goats, and quite a number
I of grade does bred from the common
short-haired ewes of the country and
his Angora bucks.
"The soft undercoat of the Cash
; mere is known as 'pashum,' and is the
product from which the famous Cash
mere shawl was made. Mr. Wm. M.
Landrum, who was probably the first
in this country to discover that our
so-called Cashmere goat was the An
1 gora instead, through investigation
I made about 1861, also states that there
! is a difference between the Cashmere
: shawl and tho Paisley shawl. These
are often referred to as being the
same shawl. While the filling of both
shawls was of pashum, the chain of the
latter was made from the kid fleece
of the Angora. Pash :m is combed
out in the spring, and is worth, when
; cleaned, in the country where lt is
! produced, from $1.50 to $2 per pound.
J way have become possessed of the
opinion that the goat is practically a
useless animal. They do not'reach
conclusions upon investigations, how
ever, and do not discriminate between
the different breeds. To them a goat
is a 'goat,' and there the argument
ends. Investigations prove that the
Angora goats are not only classed
among the most useful of the domestic
animals, and have been so classed for
thousands of years, but their useful
ness is manifested in a variety of
ways. The fleece, called 'mohair.' fur
nishes some of the finest of fabrics
among ladles' goods and is used in
various other manufactures; their
habit of browsing enables the farmer
in a wooded locality to use them to
help in subjugating the forest; their
flesh is exceedingly delicate and nutri
tious; the milk, though not so abun
dant as with the milch breed of goats,
is richer than cow's milk; their tanned
skins, though inferior in quality to the
skins of the common goat, are used
for leather; their pelts make the neat
est of rugs and robes; they are excel
lent pets for children; a few of them in
a flock of sheen are a protection from
wolves and dogs; their manure is no
ticeably helpful to the grass which
follows them after they have cleaned
away the underbrush. These are all
vital subjects of varying degrees of im
portance, and will be considered here
; under appropriate heads.
"In those localities where valuable
land is completely subdued by brush
the goats are considered of more value
; for the purpose of clearing it than for
their mohair or meat. They thus be
come one of tho farmer's important
tools. Their value in this respect must
I be measured by the value of the land
; which they will render cultivable. It
is said that in Oregon, where China
men had been paid as high as ?20 an
i acre for clearing off brush goats had
done the work even better. Sprouts
will spring up behind men's work, but
goats will keep them own until they
: cease to appear. True, the goats re
quire more time than meD. but their
work is better.
"One of the first questions to be
considered by a man who is about to
1 embark in stock raising of any kind
is the markets for his surpluB. This
question is first because it is the prin
cipal one and all important. The one
' who proposes to begin with a flock of
thoroughbred or high-grade Angoras,
i such as will yield merchantable mo
i hair, will not need to consider mar
j kets. as the increase will be employed
i to produce mohair; but a large num
1 ber of flocks will be built up in the
'< future, as they have been in the past,,
: by the use of does of the common*
' breed. It will be ascertained that the
? fleece of low grades Is barely worth
the cost of clipping it; that the skin
j is not so valuable for leather as that
j of the common goat; and that, as a
j rug or robe, the pelts are not so val
i uable as those of the higher grades.
> Therefore, if there is to be any profit
! from this part of a flock, there must
; be a market for the meat.
"The reason goats are not seen
j oftener in the market reports of re
ceipts and shipments is that they pass
as sheep. It is stated, however, that
increasing numbers are seen in the
larger markets. In the Union stock
yards of Chicago as many as 8000 were
received in ono week last year. While
the goats pass as sheep, they are also
sold to consumers as sheep. The dif
ference is very slight in some places.
In Kansas City, for instance, the sheep
bring about one-half a cent per pound
moro than goats. The packers buy
them as goats and sell them as sheep
in the form of dressed meat ?
In one-week recently 8000 goat
were received at the"'Union stoc
yards-in Chicago. They were slaugj
tered and sold, and yet no bntchVi
bought anything but "sheep" and rio J
housewife served anything at dinner;
but lamb or mutton.
The agricultural department wrote
to many goat raisers and asked them
if they had any difficulty at all i?
selling goats for food. No joke for
which Billy was ever the butt hail
more genuine humor than had this ex -
tract from a letter written in answ?r j
to the question by Thomas H. Mast?n
of Kansas City:
"You ask if I have any difficulty in
disposing of goats for meat. None at
all. The packers buy goats as well
as sheep. They make a difference of
about half a cent a pound in favor of
sheep when buying, and as they never
sell goats they save that difference in
The government's goat expert de
clares that goat meat is much better
food than mutton, and that nothing
except the prejudice against the goat
born of the paragraphers' jokes pre
vents there being a demand for goat's
flesh as food and a willingness to pay
a higher price for it than for mutton.
If this publication of Uncle Sam.
which really should be called "In
Praise of the Goat," is widely read and
believed in there doubtless will soon
be an extraordinary demand for goat
flesh and no one need yearn in vain
at any time of the year for a bit of
venison. It is the opinion of half a
dozen goat authorities quoted that
Billy's flesh, when Billy is properly
fed, cannot be distinguished from ven
ison. In fact, some of the enthusiasts
say that goat is gamier and better
than deer, provided the animal gets
its entire subsistence by browsing.
One correspond?nt of the agricul
tural department living in New Mexico
tells of a certain St. Louis community
which ate Angora "venison"' and
never knew that it was killed by the
knife of a butcher instead of by a rifle
ball of the hunter.
Another correspondent tells of a
woman who kept a boarding-house in
the country for summer sojourners
from New York, and who fed them
regularly twice a week on goat meat
and was complimented by her board
ers on the prime quality of her mut
One Texas enthusiast says: "Any
body who has ever tasted a roasted
or barbecued piece of Angora mutton
will find it better than any meat he
ever before ate."
Still another goat advocate says
that the flesh is 50 percent better than
mutton, and yet it sells to thc butchers
for less money. So much for preju

Queen Victoria's Tnrtiui.
Early in her reign Queen Victoria
adopted a tartan, or, to be exact; she
resumed one, for by way of James I.
of England she is entitled to use one.
Accordingly, the royal household dis
ports itself in the dress plaid of the
Stuarts when it holds forth at Bal
moral, and it has now become so thor
oughly identified with the present
English sovereign that it is called\the
Victoria tartan. This, is the well

To complicate the matter of tartans'
further, ecch clan was likely to have
a hunting plaid, a dress plaid, a
mourning plaid, and the plaid that
was worn exclusively by the chief and
his immediate family. Then, too, If
you happen to be a Cameron, for ex
ample, and think it an easy matter to
betake yourself to a shop and demand
the Cameron plaid, you had better be
certain whether you are a Cameron uf
Lochiel or a Cameron of Erracht
Similarly, you may be a MacDonald of
Clanranald, of Sleat, or of Staffa, It
will make an immense difference in
the kind of tartan you get, and it is
not to be expected that a Campbell of
Argyll would be seen in the tartan of
the Campbells of Cawdor, or in that
of the Campbells of Loudoun. There
is, by the way, at least one of the large
shops in New York that always has
the correct tartans imported from
Scotland in stock. As the demand for
them increases it is probable that it
will be easy to obtain the genuine ar
ticle here will all the accuracy that
distinguishes the Edinburgh shops.

Henry Names, a ?veil known team

in less than 10 minutes near Horse
creek one forenoon, and it is believed
that this is the county's r?cord for
snake-killing exploits, although wheu
the facts are known the feat does not
seerV. so remarkable, but that is one of
the features of snake stories. Mr.
Karnes was loading stone on O. H.
Strong's farm in the Horse creek dis
trict, and took his wife and several
other ladies with him from here to
pick berries. Hearing a scream from
his wife, he hurried to her. She de
clared that she had come across a rat
tlesnake. Mr. Karnes made a search
and found a garter snake was the
cause of the alarm, but it was a mon
ster, four feet one inch in length and
big around. He killed the reptile and
discovered that inside of it were 04
young ones, ranging from three to
eight inches in length. What few were
alive after he killed the mother snake

This Tigress Has a Grudge.
There is a lean tigress in the Cen
tral Park menagerie who spends a
part of the day beating her head
against the iron bars of her cage in
a vain attempt to spring upon one of
the keepers. Ordinarily the animal is
quiet enough. It is only when this
keeper passes that she ceases to be a
purring cat and becomes a fiend in
carnate. The other morning the tigress
was in an extremely bad temper. When
her fancied enemy stuck a mop in
through the bars to clean her cage,
she sprang at him, growling in thun
derous bass. Nearly everbody in the
crowd stepped back involuntarily. The
keeper placed an iron bar in the cage
at the great cat's feet and went on
with his work, while the animal snarl
ed in impotent rage and drew back her
upper lip over two gleaming white
"She doesn't seem to be fond of
you," ventured a bystander.
"No, there isn't much love lost be
tween us," replied the keeper. "Her
tantrums show that animals treasure
grudges just like people. That tigress
came here eight years ago. A day or
two after she arrived I had to punish
her and she's never gotten over it. She
watches me all day out of the corner
of her eye and every time I go by the
cage she makes a jump. I suppose she
thinks she'll get me some time. If
she does I might as well say good by."
While the man talked the tigress
looked at him with hate plainly stamp

she watched him until he was lost to
