WEALTH IN GARNET MINES
New York's Supply of the Precious
Stones Has Bean Asceruined
to Be Large.
The principal garnet raines in thc
United Suate3 are in Warren and Es
sex counties, in the eastern Adiron
dacks in northeastern New York
These mines all lie within si?; or eight
miles of the village of North Creek,
the terminus of a branch of the Dela
ware and Hudson. The country rock
ls entirely pre-Cambrian, consisting of
igneous rock, together with metamor
phosed sediments. The three minea
being worked at present are the Rog
ers. Sanders Brothers and the Hooper.
At the Rogers mine the sire of the
garnets is of unusual Interest, says
the Engineering and Mining Journal.
The matrix is a gray medium-grained
non-quartziferous gneiss. through
which the numerous, translucent, red
dish-brown garnets are well scattered.
Those with diameters up to five or six
Inches are common and the largest
taken out are said to be ths size of a
The remarkable feature is the never
falling occurrence of a rim or envel
ope of pure black, medium-grained
horn-blende crystals completely inclos
ing each garnet. The reddish-brown
garnets completely surrounded by the
black horn-blende rims, which are in
turn embedded in the gray gneiss, pre
sent a striking appearance in the
walls of the mine pits. The garnet
bearing rock is fully three-quarters ol
E. mile long.
MADE HIM FEEL LONESOME
Sam Blythe, on the Water Wagon,
Found That He Had No One to
Two years ago Sara Blythe, the
writer, elected to mount the water
cart. He became boastfully, painfully,
seinshly arid. Fer a time false friends
tried to lure him back into the shack
les-between September 15, 1911, and
June 23, 1912, he received 418 bottles
of whisky from 312 persons-but they
finally gave it up as a bad job. The
other day Blythe was talking with two
serfs of the demon at the Waldorf.
By and by their mania came upon
them. They began to edge toward the
"Well, Sam, see you later," they
"'No." said Blythe. "Dunno. You
may not care to have me in your lit
tle party, but ? ara going right along.
I will drink water, or buttermilk, or
ginger ale, or any noa-alcoholic thing
you say, but I am not going to stay
out here all alono."
"Why, Sam, you're welcome," said
the bond slaves, feebly.
"No, I ara not," said Blythe. "I
can tell by the tone of your voices.
I spent the best 20 years of my life
making a collection of drinking
friends, and now I have no one to
play with."-Cincinnati Times-Star.
Women Carried Dogs Long Ago.
Plutarch wrote about women who
carried dogs ahout iu their anns, and
one of the Roman emperors said some
thing about women who fussed over
lapdogs when they should be lavish
ing their attention upon babies. The
emperor wasn't, and probably didn't
pretend to be, raaklag an original ob
The fact about dogs-and lt is not
new-is that some persons like them
greatly, some like them less and sonio
do not li' e them. It is very much
the same about boiled turnips or clam
chowder. But depth of feeling and
easby engendered animosity, sudden
ness in quarrel, are sometimes more
noticeable In discussions of the ques
tion of whether do^s should be liked
than that of whether the flavor of tur
nips is agreeable or otherwise, though
the discussion is as fruitless of other
results as an argument about ilavor.
All His Time to Benevolence.
Nathan Straus. long a leading tigure
in the mercantile world, will devote
the greater part ol' iiis time hence
forth, it is ?raid, to benevolent enter
prises. He is dopply interested in
extending the work of the relief bu
reau and other charitable undertak
ings which he has inaugurated in Pal
estine. He was born in Bavaria ia
1843, and was brought to this coun
try hy his parent in 1S54. After grad
uating from a business college he
joined his father in importing pot
tery and glassware, in which business
he is still interested. He originated
in 1890, and has Blnce maintained at
his own expense, a system of distrib
uting sterilized milk to the poor of
New York city.
Fire Stopped Church Service.
The sermon was stopped when the
Rev. C. J. Whitehead, vicar of South
Newington, five miles from Hanbury
Oxfordshire, England, was informed
that the vicarage was on fire. He pro
nounced the benediction, and, accom
panied by moat of the congregation
.hurried to the house to remove furni
ture, bocks and valuables. News o'
the fire was sent to Bloxham. where
a lire engine is BtaUoned, and as most
of the members of the brigade were at
church, the service there was suspend
ed also, the entire congregation troop
lng out despite an appeal from th?
vicar to romain.

; ; Shah's Coldblooded Sus^'stlon tr.
j English Monarch-Why the
Prince Left White's Club.
? I An amusing story of particular in
. ! terest at the moment is told concern
? j ing the duke of Sutherland by Lord
. j Suffield in "My Memories." When the
: ! shah of Persia visited this country, the
, late King Edward, who was then
. prince of Wales, told him that the
: duke of Sutherland owned large es
! tates in Scotland, as well as in Eng
. land. The shah ls alleged to have
i said: "He must be very rich. Of
? course, when you come to the throne
you will-" And here he made an ex
! pressive gesture with his finger across
i his throat.
Lord Suffield was on close terms of
; intimacy with the late king, who, al
though he had the reputation of alta
. bility and geniality, drew very plainly
, the limits which guarded his dignity.
: On one occasion his late majesty was
; leaving White's club, and began to
. light a cigar In a room in which people
did not usually smoke. Some officious
official came up and said so, and the
? prince replied, quite pleasantly, "hat
: he was Just going. The official retorted,
? rather rude'y, that the club rules must
be observed, no matter who the mern
i ber was, and the prince, without an
. other word, left the club, and with
. drew his name next day. The Marl
borough owes its existence to that lit
. tie lapse or Sack of tact on the part
! of one of White's people.
EUROPE'S MOST TACTFUL MAN
Viscount Knollys, the Late King Ed
ward's Friend, Has Been Accord
ed That Distinction.
Eurcp6's most "tactful man" ls, by
I common consent. Viscount Knollys,
first baron of Caversham, who is now
just seventy-six. For over 40 years he
was private secretary to British roy
alty, the friend and counsellor of
three monarchs, and his recent retire
ment was considered lu court circles
to be little less than a calamity. It
has been said of him that "no other
man ever knew so much or said sa
little." The tribute is deserved, for
Lord Knollys was always a human
sphynx. Shrewd insight, unfailing
tact and courtesy, and the rare abil
ity to hold his tongue, enabled him to
win and hold the esteem and respect
of not only those he directly served,
but of cabinet ministers, diplomats
and the people at large. Only the re
port?is disliked him, for never a word
were they able to get out of him.
It was In 18S6 that Francis Knollys,
then merely a "Mr.," entered the serv
ice of royalty as gentleman usher tc
Queen Victoria. Two years later h?
was appointed private secretary to
the prince of Wales, later King Ed
Cameras Barred on Italy's Frontier.
The secretary of state for foreign af
fairs has been informed by his ma
jesty's charge d'affaires at Rome that
the italian government has issued r?g
ulations prohibiting the use of cam
eras on the whole of the italian iron
1 tier, where the-e are positions of mil?
j kary importance, and aiso in places
[ in the interior of Italy requiring pro
'? tecUon from ?:.ies. The position ol
I these prohibi ed districts is always
; indicated on posts and placards clear
; ly marking the limits of such sones.
Visitors to Italy are therefore
v.arned that if, after crossing the
Italiau frontier, they enter any of
those zones, they will he liable to have
cameras seized and bo subjected to
penal proceedings and lines. Should
: a plate or film be found on a visitor
with the negative of a military local
ity of importance, the consequences
?would be still more serious.-London
Shortening the Law's Delay.
A remarkable change has come over
: the kiDg'r, bench courts, remarks the
London Globe. Twelve mouths agc
the conditiou of the courts was so con
gested that the judges were trying
actions which had stood for heariuf;
six mouths and more. Recently five
actions wore before the judges wb'.ch
I were set down for trial the month be
fore. The ex-lord chancellor once ex
pressed the hope that judges might
be :n the agreeable position of Baying
to litigants, "Come Into the courts
I today and we will hear you tomor
, row." When litigants have to wait
'? less than three weeks for their cases
j to be reached the fulfillment of this
j hope would appear to be not far off.
! Not in every part of the work of the
: king's bench division, however, ari
j things so expeditious.
No Royal Cross Saddles.
King George and Queen Mary do not
j favor the use of cross saddles by girls
I and women. Hence Princess Mary'a
! recent first appearance in the hunt
ing field carried with' it a certain
sense of disappointment to those aris
tocratic women - and their number
i is an ever-increasing one-who have
I exehnn.<rcd the side saddle of their
j ancestresses for the cross saddle of
! men not only at the covert side, but
I also in the park. Nevertheless, the
! new custom is one that has not yet
I found any favor in royal circles.
j "I know now why they are called de
j partment stores," said a stout bald
"Why are they called depart
ment, stores?' asked the special po
"Because a man departs Crom them
as soon as he can."
Putting on his coat, the stout,, bald
! citizen moved further away.-Newark
WASTED WEALTH OF COUNTRY
All Kinds of Game Has Been indis
criminately Slaughtered Through
The fish, flesh and fowl of Labiador,
writes Dr. Grenfell in the Wide World,
have been exploited to the last degree,
and no scintific or practical effort has
been made for their protection or re
habilitation. Our auks, curlew, ducks
and many other birds have become j
either extinct or dangerously deplet
ed. Our deer, owing to forest fires
caused by carelessness and unrestrict
ed slaughter by Indians, as weil as i
white settlers, have BO far diminished |
as to bring semi-starvation to doors i
where once there was always plenty. !
The destruction of Beal herds has
brought families once affluent to Eila
erable poverty. For some reason our
unrivaled herring and mackerel have
left us altogether. The salmon cz tch
is only a shadow of what lt once was,
and even the returns of our still val
uable cod fishery show increasing un
certainty in quantity and distribution.
The growing number of trappers, the
lack of protection, or the destruction
of their food supplies, has made the
annual winter fur hunt insufficient to
maintain in comfort all who prosecute
it, and that in spite of the immense
increase in the price of pelts. Seals
and whales are rapidly approaching a
No mines are yet opened; no timber
properties yet developed, and no use '
is made of our unlimited water power.
Only a handful of visitors come to en
joy the wild scenery, the unique
natural conditions, and the invigorat
ing atmosphere, though our fjords
rival those of Norway, and have the
additional attraction of being virgin
and unexplored. No charting has been
done, and at that time, as already stat
ed, there was not oue light on the
coast from the straits of Belle isle
to Hudson's bay to render navigation
safe. It is little to be wondered at if
adequate tourist steamers do not ply
in our waters. In fact, Labrador Is in
that melancholy stage of evolution
that must inevitably overtake every
country until attention ls turned to
the development of Industries that
man does not share with the tiger
and the shark.
